Everybody loves a good sale…right? Today is the day for a lot of good things on sale at Amazon. If you are an Amazon Prime Member there are even better deals to be secured. Just in case you aren’t a Prime Member, here is a sale that is hard to pass up. The Nvidia Shield TV is on sale for 8 hours only today, both versions.
If you follow gaming news decently close, then you’ve probably caught wind at least once about the Nintendo Playstation, the bastard child of Sony and Nintendo that almost was. However, due to certain events, it never came to be and the two companies who had a loving relationship ended instead.
It is July 15th, 2015 and that really didn’t mean much up until this year, unless of course that is your birthday. However this year, and possibly future years as well, July 15th is Amazon Prime Day which is Amazon’s big sale day for Prime members. This is the first year for Prime Day and Amazon is touting more deals than Black Friday and so far that is appearing to be quite true. Not only is there a lot of deals, most of them are actually pretty good.

Pinball Arcade by FarSight Studios is one of the two major pinball platforms on numerous platforms including Android (both mobile and consoles like Ouya). Pinball Arcade up until now would reproduce actual pinball tables that used to exist, and some still do, in arcades and other places, bringing these true to life reproductions to mobile platforms so we could all play them.
Ouya teased not too long ago that it would be releasing an improved version of their original Android-powered game console in the near future. This is not the Ouya 2 or any sort of next-gen version of the console but just an enhanced version of the original with some improvement to storage space, the controller and other features.
The upcoming Mojo Android-powered game console by Mad Catz is nearing its official retail launch and it looks like it will be a little more appealing when it finally does go on sale thanks to Mad Catz and Nvidia working together to bring Nvidia’s GameStream technology to the console. While this feature most likely won’t make it in time for the console’s launch, it is planned for it to arrive in an update shortly afterwards.
