  • Banjo-Tooie on Xbox Live Arcade this April

    Banjo-Tooie, the sequel to Banjo-Kazooie, will be released on Xbox Live Arcade this April. Like the BK XBLA port, BT‘s graphics will be updated: 1080p and a smooth frame rate.

  • Now we can speculate about the imminent arrival of Killer Instinct 3

    Blame Rare for starting anew the age-old Killer Instinct 3 rumors. This time around, several Killer Instinct characters (well, their names) can be found in the recently released Viva Piñata Trouble in Paradise. B.Orchid, Uncle Tusk and Fulgore can been seen scampering around well-kempt gardens. The Piñatas appear only after scanning in vision cards, of which Maxconsole has a photo. My guess… Read More

It’s plausible considering the fact that Microsoft put the kibosh on Bungie’s new project announcement at E3 because it needed its own event.

  • Virtual Console GoldenEye stuck in ‘no man's land,’ unlikely to be released

    What’s taking so long for GoldenEye to be released on the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console? Rare’s Nick Burton says the number of licensees involved will more than likely prevent the game from ever being available on Virtual Console, saying the game is in “no man’s land.” Says Burton: It’s incredibly hard to solve because there’s so many license… Read More

  • Simpsonsizing The Xbox 360

    Just as we got done telling you about the new Simpsons game due out this year, Microsoft goes and spills the beans on a new limited-edition 360 due out this summer. This banana-yellow Simpsons 360 is the coolest looking console to date. Not only does it go along with the Simpsons’ movie release, but it has minor touches that really show the detail put into the console. Like… Read More

  • Expensive NES Games/Shirts Hit eBay

    The Nintendo World Championship NES cartridge is one of the rarest and most sought after “games” for the Nintendo Entertainment System in existence.
