Instead, the Toios are equipped with bluetooth receivers that enable them to talk to each other as well as receive commands from a remote console. The system also comes with a number of patterned paper designs that you cut out and attach to the Toios which both add to the visual effect and help control the robots, as you can see in the video below. The Toios also come with a special optically-patterned mat which allows their visual sensors to navigate the play area, not unlike the Ozobot, though you can also take control of the robots' movements directly with one of a pair of controllers that plug into the console. There's no word yet on whether Sony will release additional cartridges or will allow users to program their own.


Nintendo Could Release The New NX Console This Year

Popular Science

Nintendo's Wii U console will cease to be produced by the end of 2016. Here's what that means for the NX console Nintendo's home console the Wii U will cease production, according to Japanese paper Nikkei (by way of VentureBeat). The successor to the Wii has seen great titles like Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros 4 and level-creator Super Mario Maker, but not much success. But with Nintendo abandoning their flagship home console product in 2016, it's almost safe to assume the company will bring their upcoming "NX" home console to market to replace it. The Nintendo NX release date--as well as everything else about the NX--remains shrouded in mystery for many Mario fans.

Best Xbox One X games: what to play on the world's most powerful console

#artificialintelligence

Since the Xbox One X's release two years ago, the powerful console has changed the limits of gaming – improving graphics to a true 4K resolution. It offers the best you can get on a console, at least until next-generation Xbox Project Scarlett launches. We now know of over 250 Xbox One X enhanced games for the new-ish console, including new titles such as Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Forza Horizon 4. While we'd love to tell you all of these games are going to ooze visual fidelity when you pop them onto your TV, not all of them are going to look like they're fresh out of the developer's oven. You see, even though the Xbox One X is capable of 4K/HDR at 60 frames per second along with Dolby Atmos sound, not all games are guaranteed to have all of these improvements. Some will support all of them, while some will support HDR and nothing more.


Nintendo to launch NX console in March 2017

Engadget

The next generation of #Nintendo is coming March 2017! What's crystal clear, however, is Nintendo's need for a new, successful console. The Wii U has been a disaster, despite offering high quality games like Splatoon, Super Mario 3D World and Bayonetta 2. The GamePad never resonated with players and the console's reduced horsepower -- at least in comparison to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 -- means that third-party support is now almost non-existent. The 3DS, while successful, is also starting to show its age. To stay relevant and turn around its recently dismal financial earnings, Nintendo needs a new system to act as a foundation.
