Nintendo NX Controller

It's only a matter of time until Nintendo officially reveals the NX, but for now, we'll have to settle for these purported controller shots. A few years back, rumors swirled that Nintendo partnered with Sharp to use its free-form LCD display technology, and the design appears to make use of this new screen. Nintendo's patent for this controller shows two physical joysticks, and two buttons to be pressed by the index fingers on top of the screen.

Modern Game Boy

If Nintendo released a modern tribute to the classic Game Boy, it would probably look something like Florian Renner's creation. Taking another look at his incredible design, we see that the classic button layout has been retained, along with the top-loading game cartridge slot. "The project target was to keep the catchy elements of the original and adapt them to the functions and requirements of current games. In addition to the existing materiality, there is a variation from sustainable natural fiber reinforced plastic," said Renner. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Princess Peach Halo 5

Halo 5: Guardians and Super Mario Bros. 64 aren't synonymous, but one fan decided to combine the two and recreate Princess Peach's castle in the first-person shooter. Reddit user "Bearskopff" spent hours on the map, and believe it or not, every single brick is a single object in the map, as he said "no shortcuts taken here," while remaining very keen to simulating the geometry found in the original game.

Game Boy Macro

Have a broken Nintendo DS just collecting dust? Then it may be time to transform it into a Game Boy Macro. It's essentially a DS modded to run without a top screen, and when paired with a nice looking outer shell, it becomes a whole new console, similar to the Game Boy Advance. For those wondering why there's a black border, the modded console creates this to maintain the same aspect ratio/resolution of a Game Boy Advance. Click here for more pictures.

Sony PSX

Sony's PSX is essentially a digital video recorder with a fully integrated PlayStation 2 video game console, first released in Japan on December 13, 2003. Since the device was designed to be a general-purpose consumer video device, it was marketed by the main Sony Corporation instead of Sony Computer Entertainment and does not carry the usual PlayStation branding. Unfortunately, its high cost resulted in poor sales, and ultimately, its demise. The PSX fully supports both PlayStation and PlayStation 2 software by its slot-loading DVD drive, as the onboard EE+GS chip is a unification of the PS2's Emotion Engine and Graphics Synthesizer chips. Online game compatibility is available using the broadband connection; Games that use the PS2 HDD (such as Final Fantasy XI) are supported as well. Continue reading for more.

PS4 Wood Block Christmas

Boston's Fox 25 reports that the Lundy family didn't quite get what they expected on Christmas morning when their son opened a PlayStation 4 box and discovered a fake wooden console inside, with an obscene image drawn on it to boot. "He got a PS4 and he says 'this is the best present ever this is the best Christmas ever,'" said Brian Lundy. However, things did end up on a bright note when they took it back to the Saugus Target. "They not only gave us a new game system but they also gave us a $100 gift card as well as an additional game that the original game that was supposed to be in the box. Couldn't have been any kinder," said Kristin Lundy. Social media is claiming that some thieves are getting crafty by replacing the original seals with authentic-looking fake ones to make it appear as if a box hasn't yet been opened, resulting in unfortunate events, like this one.
