Gionee S20 does NES games

Giant NES controller debuts

Giant NES controller debuts
Philip Torrone is a hardcore gamer who collaborated with his team of builders to come up with this giant of a NES controller, parading it at the recently concluded Maker Faire 2007. The Giant NES controller uses wood as its main construction material of choice, and it is not good for aesthetic purposes only since it works perfectly fine when hooked up to the classic NES. It is just funny to see how small the connector is compared to the entire controller. One person isn’t enough to press all the…

Pega HK unveils Wii portable screen

Pega HK unveils Wii portable screen
Pega HK has released a portable screen attachment for the Wii, making it follow the footsteps of the PlayStation 2 and PSOne consoles. What you get is a full 7″ of viewing area and keystroke control for volume and color adjustment. The display can be adjusted for an optimal viewing angle, but I think you would use this more with Virtual Console games and older GameCube games than Wii titles, as the latter more often than not are party titles that require a few players for a truly fun experience.…
