  1. I just saw this article on the BBC News website and figured it might be of interest to a few people on here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-47896612
  2. It's got USB connectors on the bottom edge labelled "1P" and "2P" which match the Neo Geo Mini as well as a headphone jack so it's clearly more than just an arcade stick. I assume they've stuck the Neo Geo Mini hardware minus the screen into this new form factor, I hope that means they've improved the video out quality on it. I'm a bit confused by the extra input buttons and the number of buttons on the right hand side so it looks like they are doing something a bit more that just a Neo Geo mini in an arcade stick but I'm not sure what. There's been talk of a new metal slug for a while and now it looks like an SNK character is coming to smash (that's possibly from Metal Slug) so I wonder if the new Metal Slug game will be on this console and it will offer some kind of online store?
  3. Do you know if Amazon.jp charge at the time of the order or when they ship?
  4. I like the simplicity/tidiness, but what's the sphere with legs, a subwoofer for the soundbar?
  5. Extra (expensive) controllers now up on Amazon uk too though the picture shows the Japanese colour scheme: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Turbo-Controller-Engine-Coregrafx-Electronic/dp/B07TFW2MYX/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=Pc+engine+mini&qid=1563596699&s=gateway&sr=8-9

  7. They've already announced a special edition Switch Lite for Pokémon Sword & Shield.
  8. Cost saving? It may only cost them a tiny amount extra per unit but when they sell millions the costs still racks up fast and company's do think about this. I remember working on a game years ago and the publisher wouldn't put a credits page in the game's manual despite the cost per manual being negligible (especially compared to HDMI out hardware and a cable!) and that's the reason they gave.
  9. Saves are stored on the switch console not the cart. I hope they get some sort of cloud saving system on the go to get round this and multiple consoles.
  10. Apparently this has sold out on PS4 in Japan (physical). I had a look on base.com and Amazon uk and they have sold out too so it's either selling well or the first run was tiny!
  11. I've just bought the "free" season past too, I think you have found an exploit or they always planned to have the season pass free for 5 days as their way of implementing the offer but haven't publicised it to stop people doing exactly what you've done! I purchased the game at release due to the free season pass and would have waited a while too if I'd known this! I can't see the same pack on Xbox though, only on PS4?
  12. I've not used a Neo Geo CD but from what I've read I don't think it's quite that bad and I'm probably just highlighting something that's a bit of a first world problem. For reference I find the loading times of Street Fighter 5 (on a standard PS4) a bit too long too...maybe it's an Unreal Engine thing? On the plus side you do get an animated icon of a running rabbit with a sign rather than a juggling monkey while it's loading and an even better icon of a frog sheltering from rain under a leaf while the game saves!
  13. Patches have pretty much killed collecting of modern games for me, so many games now launch unfinished with a day one patch or are significantly improved post launch that the value to me of maybe being able to play a buggy unfinished version of that game in 20 years by buying physical has gone. I do buy PS4 games physically because I hadn't come to terms with this (a bit overdramatic) when I got the console but I've been a 100% digital on my Xbox One which I picked up last year. I buy switch games physically because I still don't think Nintendo's account system is good enough and their single player games hold their value well and don't seem to suffer as badly from a stream of updates. I only collect retro games now and plan to be 100% digital on PS5/Scarlett.
