Over the weekend Amazon had two new listings on their new products page, one was for the NVIDIA SHIELD Console and the second was for a Pro version of it. The NVIDIA SHIELD console is nothing new and was announced at GDC back in March. We were unaware of a “Pro” version though and it looks like Amazon let the cat out of the bag.
Nintendo is working on a new next-generation console that will succeed the Wii U. Nintendo is reacting to lower sales and its competitive edge compared to current consoles like the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Many reports suggest that Nintendo might change-course in the direction of its console business much like it did with the original Wii. The company could come up with a system that is focused on serious gaming, but still retain that original “fun” quality. So the console could be more NES-like than Wii-like.
If you know your video game history you know that 20 years ago today (December 3rd 1994), Sony released the original PlayStation in Japan.

Android-based console newbie OUYA announced today via Twitter that they’re now accepting Bitcoin for console purchases. No word yet on using the Bitcoin digital currency for game purchases, but it’s probably safe to assume that such is not far behind.
We got our first look at Xi3’s Piston during CES in January. Since then Xi3 has made many improvements to it and it will be available just in time for the holidays! The Piston is an extremely compact PC system that is roughly the size of a softball (4.27×3.656×3.656-inches).
Behold, the day of days has arrived: Kickstarted darling Ouya, the Android-powered video game console, is available to the public. It sold out on Amazon in just a few hours and I’ll bet that other retailers are finding their stocks a little low, too. I backed Ouya on Kickstarter shortly before the close of the nearly $8.6M funding round last summer, and I received my backer unit a couple of weeks ago. I’ve had some time to play several of the games and poke around the device a bit.
Just a couple of days ago we told you that Microsoft will be holding an Xbox event on May 21st. Many people suspect this is where the next-generation Xbox console will be revealed, I mean the event is being dubbed #XboxReveal on twitter so we can only assume we will get our first look at the new console at the event. One of the first people to announce the event date was Paul Thurrott and he was on this well before Microsoft Announced it. Now Paul has said that the console will be available for purchase in early November for $499 or just $299 with a $10 subscription.
