Nintendo's New Year eShop sale is a bit of a rarity, focussing on first-party game discounts

Nintendo has launched its Happy New Year eShop sale for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U, featuring a decent range of discounted first-party titles on all formats. It's fairly uncommon to see Nintendo reduce the price of its first-party games and, as you might expect, the newly unveiled discounts don't offer the most substantial of savings. Show More Summary

Paladins is getting a Battlegrounds-inspired mode and it is named Paladins: Battlegrounds

Hero shooter Paladins is getting a battle royale mode, Paladins: Battlegrounds, which will arrive in-game this year.

Kinect was amazing - in a museum

Kinect is dead. Even its Xbox One adaptor is dead. And I mourn Kinect a little, because there are moments where I remember loving it. Crucially, though, in none of these moments was it connected in any meaningful way to an Xbox. Kinect was a bit of a bust in the living room. Show More Summary
