Earlier this week, a report by Eurogamer might have outed the top secret concept behind Nintendo’s next dedicated gaming device, codename NX.
To quickly recap: The console will have its own display - letting it function as a handheld, along with detachable controllers along the sides of the device. It will run cartridge-based games, and use a dock to output games to your TV when you’re at home. The device will be quite powerful for a handheld - somewhere between the power level of the Wii U and Xbox One - but quite a bit less powerful than the current-gen consoles, which are already several years old.

While Take-Two has been primarily invested in large-scale projects like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, the publisher is looking to get into the indie scene, according to company CEO Strauss Zelnick.
"We do have an indie program," Zelnick said in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, noting that while the program doesn't yet have a name, the company has been working on it for "about a year," collaborating with a few independent game studios. Take-Two plans to keep things under wraps for the time being, waiting instead to discuss the program further when there's substantial information to share.
The ongoing mystery behind Tony Stark's biological parents was addressed in the new issue of International Iron Man today.
Warning: this article contains spoilers for International Iron Man #5!
After wrapping up his battle with ex-girlfriend-turned arms dealer Cassandra Gillespie, Tony was approached with new files revealing the identity of his birth mother, a woman who gave him up for adoption at a Bulgarian orphanage all those years ago. It turns out that Tony's birth mother isn't a familiar Marvel character, but an ordinary British DJ named Amanda Armstrong.
ALL I'm saying is that there's time to change the name of the WWE Universal Championship. No one's been named champion yet, we're still weeks away from SummerSlam, and no one will mind the awkward backtracking. Because it's a ridiculous name. It just is. Reasons being...
- It's blatantly sounds like a child trying to one-up his friend. Yours is the world belt? Well, mine is the whole UNIVERSE!
- It sounds like someone's grossly smooching up to NBCUniversal, who own the USA Network.
- It's supposedly named after the WWE Universe - which is a term plenty of us still reject openly. Plus, if it represents them, then it feels more like a fan-favorite Kids' Choice-type award than an actual title.
