Sure, it’s all about the Switch these days, but Nintendo has another console out there: the NES Mini, or NES Classic Edition as Nintendo calls it. And it’s been in and out of stock (mostly out of stock) ever since it launched late last year.But now Amazon is saying that they’ll have the mini console in stock on April 3rd, despite reports that NES Mini production had ended.If you still want one, you should check Amazon on April 3rd — we’re sure that whatever stock Amazon gets, it will sell out pretty quickly.You can find it on Amazon here. Although the price right now is $173, way above the $60 MSRP (because it’s in high demand and there is no supply). READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event maintained solid 60fps performance

The folks at Digital Foundry got around to testing out the framerate and resolution of Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event over the weekend and the information is pretty encouraging considering the Nintendo Switch is a portable system. Unfortunately, Splatoon 2 doesn’t run at 1080p resolution on the Nintendo Switch. Instead, it runs at 720p in docked mode at a fixed resolution, while in handheld mode the game features a dynamic resolution. The guys say that handheld resolution seems to range around 514p when played in portable mode. Digital Foundry says that this is pretty noticeable in portable mode, but it’s no where near the amount of fuzziness that you could see on the PS Vita with framerate and resolution drops. While they make note that some fans could be disappointed with Nintendo’s choice to focus on framerate rather than resolution, the guys say that framerate should matter more than resolution for online play. No framerate drops were spotted during the hour sessions that were played, which means the game’s framerate is extremely stable. Splatoon 2 – $59.99 READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

February 2017 Digital Sales Report: For Honor Sells Over 700,000 Copies, Places in 7th

According to SuperData’s digital games report for February 2017, the worldwide market rose 4% year-over-year to $7.83 billion. The console and mobile categories were up 8% and 9%, respectively, while pay-to-play, free-to-play, and social all fell. Just looking at the United States, digital revenue was up 6.4% year-over-year across console, PC, and mobile games. “Console digital revenue grew an impressive 18% year-over-year due in part to an increase in the average selling price of digital units,” SuperData added. Here’s the top ten grossing console games in February 2017, ranked by worldwide digital revenue: FIFA 17 Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Grand Theft Auto V Battlefield 1 Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 ARK: Survival Evolved For Honor Madden NFL 17 Destiny NBA 2K17 FIFA 17 repeated at #1, and digital revenue was up double-digits over FIFA 16 in February 2016.
