Train2Game News N64 Goes Modern


The EON Super 64, the first-of-its-kind, plug-and-play solution connecting the Nintendo64 with modern televisions and monitors, is available now at CastleMania Games, Amazon, and other retail partners.
EON, the creators of the acclaimed GCHD and GCHD Mk-II,
upscales N64 classics by delivering gorgeous 480p — double the N64’s
native resolution — and truly lagless input with the EON Super 64. The
optional “Slick Mode” even smooths jagged edges, making classics look
sharper than ever. EON delivers the first device that respects the
original hardware without risky modifications and external power
sources.
Connect the N64 to a high-definition TV via HDMI and forego heavy CRT televisions and risky console modifications, unlocking a pure retro experience.

EON’s attention to detail provides an elegant, modern solution for the
32.9 million N64s sold that are unable to play on today’s displays.

With reverence for the Nintendo hardware legacy, EON designed the Super 64 as a natural extension of the console itself by following the N64’s
design aesthetic.

The Super 64 looks like it was always meant to be
there.

“Because the Nintendo 64 impacted our lives and the lives of so many others, honoring the original hardware with a look and quality level to match was crucial,” said Justin Chou, Justin Scerbo, and Allan Chou, founders of EON.

“We designed the Super 64 to bring our favorite games to modern
TVs, and not just be playable, but beautiful. We hope our device lives
up to your memories.”

The EON Super 64 is now available in North America for $149.99 USD on Amazon, CastleMania Games, and other EON retail partners. Check out EON’s mission and quality standards on their website and celebrate the N64 with them on Twitter.

Comedian-led TV show for gamers Console Yourself , produced by GINX TV, is set to return for a third season this week on Sunday April 10th at 8 p.m. on Virgin Media channel 290 in the UK.

Building on the trend to rally gaming to TV audiences, the show will see the return of Host Neil Cole (award-winning comedian & broadcaster) and some of the UK circuit’s favourite comedy talents dissecting the common ground of video games. The show is like a stress-busting therapy session for gamers – but funny.

Guests in the new series include comedians and gamers  Inel Tomlinson (CBBC, Virgin Radio),  Steve McNeil (Go 8 Bit), Ellie Gibson (Eurogamer), Bec Hill (Sky’s DC Fancast), Jim Smallman (BBC Radio 5 Live), Bisha K. Ali, Archie Maddocks, Matthew Highton, Sam Golin and Simon Feilder.

Series 3 of the comedian-led show will see Host Neil Cole and stand-up favourites chat the loves  and loathes of videogames, with every episode focusing on a range of popular gaming themes from the PlayStation 4 console and the Street Fighter Franchise, to Pokémon, the Zelda series and the SNES.

Neil Cole commented: “When I first started performing stand-up comedy, it was a relief to realise that I wasn’t the only comedian who spent as much time playing videogames as writing jokes and driving to gigs – so this show is as natural a meeting-place for funny gaming chat as the arcade at the services on the M6 Toll Road” 

Console Yourself will be co-produced by Adam Mason and Neil Cole. For a look at previous episodes of the series, see https://ginx.tv/tv-shows/console-yourself/.

The brand new season 3 of Console Yourself will premiere on Sunday April 10th at 8 p.m. in the UK on Virgin Media Channel 290 and on GINX TV worldwide.
