New Retro Gaming Console

Hey all you retro gamers out there!  Have you ever wanted to play your old NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis games all on one console?  Well now you can!  The Hyperkin RetroN 3 is a brand new retro game console made specifically to play NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis games.  This slick console has 3 cartridge slots for each of these types of consoles.  It even comes with two wireless controllers.  Or you can hook up you old SNES, NES, and Sega Genesis controllers and play that way.  This new console is very affordable at $70.00.  However I found one of the consoles on Amazon for about $50.00.  Buy one online if you’re interested!

ZombiU Could Be on Multiple Platforms

Ubisoft’s senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key says that the recently-announced technology from Microsoft and Sony allows ZombiU to be ported to those systems.  The Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the game would release some time after the Wii U version of the game if Ubisoft decides to do this.  Key says that Ubisoft has already begun experimenting on the different platforms.  Although if the title does expand, it wouldn’t be anytime soon.
