Oh'Dear... When I read this earlier, I thought it was April's Fools Day in late July, but its been now confirmed by a number of legit long-time Nintendo insiders and developers, that this is the real deal, what we are looking at is the Nintendo NX, a super-duper high-powered tablet with Terga inside, large big screen, and two detachable controllers, a cartridge slot for non-digital games, and some sort of 'docking station' for charging and connecting to your large living room TV screen when you wish to go non-portable!

You can now lose your Xbox Live gamertag if you don't log in to the service often enough, although the frequency required to keep your name isn't asking much.


Besides the new 'must login within 5 years' rule, alot of other small changes were made to the new T&C agreement that you must accept, one of them being those in the 'Rewards' or 'Insider' programs for special access have to login with every 180 days to stay a member, and bunch of new disclaimers were added in regard to how payments for Xbox Live services are processed within the USA, stopping Microsoft from getting sued by all those players now cut-off from renewing in Greece and Turkey as payments were stopped.

The woman learned to drive using an Xbox

A motorist who led police on a high speed chase like a scene from Grand Theft Auto had never passed her test and only learned to drive on the Xbox, a court heard. Jessica Pegg was pursued for three-miles through a city centre in a car that she bought for £100 off Facebook.


We all heard about the stories regarding 'woman' drivers, which is statistically not correct, but this one makes the case for it big time as she learned how to drive solely using her Xbox and Grand Theft Auto style, she went out into the real world driving for the first time!

Another horrible violent crime, and media again as usual are quick to pull the trigger themselves and blame 'video games' for it!

‘Emulation’ - Playboy discusses the world of Retro Gaming and Emulators like Dolphin!

Sex is the one of the most popular things in the world, and believe it or not, Video Games is the second most popular thing in the world, so it makes sense that the Porn Mag Playboy would run a large in-depth News Article about Emulation and the Love of Nintendo.


Playboy off and on, has an love-hate relationship with Nintendo, infact back in the day we discussed it before on MaxConsole, big 'N' themselves even placed ads for their popular video games, even some little porn little shows like Mario and Nude Showers?

So it makes sense now that Retro Gaming is a big time thing, that Playboy would interview the author of Dolphin one of the best Nintendo emulators out there and uncover the dirt behind 'Emulation' and what makes it so much fun me might even forgot about our first love, sex itself!...
