PSP Getting Neo Geo Games?

The latest PSP firmware update indicates that the system might eventually play classic games from more than one platform, not unlike the Wii Virtual Console. The 6.30 firmware version lets users group games stored on a memory stick by platform. The PS3 has been able to do this for some time between PS3 and original PlayStation games. Despite the PSP already incorporating PS1 playback, users couldn't group games like that on the platform. Now they can – along with TurboGrafX and Neo Geo games. Read More

Nintendo Download - 12/21/09 - 500th Downloadable Wii Game Makes for a Smashing Holiday Season

As time ticks down for 2009, one could only wonder which game would reach the Virtual Console first: Super Smash Bros., or Pilotwings. And with today marking the 500th release on Virtual Console, the choice seems obvious as the original Super Smash Bros. finally arrives in North America for a whopping 1,000 Wii Points. While relatively primitive compared to the likes of Melee and Brawl, this is one I still look forward to trying out, mostly for some of the unique stages that for whatever reason were never brought back in later installments. Smash Bros. isn't alone, however; the arcade version of Ninja Gaiden also arrives on Virtual Console... er, at last? It's 600 Wii Points, but Nintendo has an interesting way of selling it: "Each stage is based around popular Western misconceptions about ninja and Japan, making the game world a fantastic mix of ninja and American pop culture." On the upside, at least you can toggle settings, such as number of lives and difficulty, so perhaps it will be a more tolerable experience now. There are plenty of other releases this week, too, just in time for Christmas. That includes the game we looked at just last week, 530 Eco Shooter, now known here as "Eco Shooter: Plant 530," and Dragon's Lair for DSi. See what's what in the press release after the cut.

Some sort of game that lets you put the home together like above, and then add a bunch (or all) of your Miis into one big house for some sort of reality TV kind of thing. Then again, I'm not big on reality TV, so how good of an idea could that be? Read More
