This is why Android isn’t getting Super Mario Run next week

Super Mario Run Android

Super Mario Run is arguably one of the most exciting mobile games of the season, with iPhone and iPad owners eagerly waiting for Mario to finally run onto iOS devices. There’s one annoying thing about Nintendo’s iPhone game, and it’s not its $9.99 price at launch. The company just confirmed that the game will require an active internet connection at all times. You know, just to prevent piracy. And as it turns out, that’s also why Mario fans who own Android devices won’t get Super Mario Run for the time being.

How to get Magearna in Pokemon Sun

Just over two weeks after launch, Pokemon Sun and Moon are receiving their first Mythical Pokémon: the Steel- and Fairy-type Magearna. As with all Mythical Pokemon, you won't be able to catch Magearna out in the wild. Instead, you will have to scan a QR code and pick it up from a character in the game.

Somehow, the NES Classic wasn’t the hottest game console this Thanksgiving

NES Classic Edition

The NES Classic Edition has been an instant hit for Nintendo. You probably could've guessed that a $60 console preloaded with a bunch of retro games would be cannon fodder for the Instagram gamers of this world, but no-one predicted the supply shortages Nintendo has faced.

The difficulty in getting consoles from stores has pushed many people onto eBay, and made the online marketplace the best (if most expensive) place to buy the Classic. But despite that, data from eBay shows that traditional, boring, non-hipster games consoles killed the NES Classic Edition over Thanksgiving.

Who the hell bought a NES Classic Edition for $88,000?

nes classic edition ebay

No, you didn't wake up in an alternate reality where 8-bit game consoles are as far as humanity has progressed in the year 2016: the NES Classic Edition is actually selling for hundreds — and in some cases many thousands — of dollars.

eBay, the last bastion of true capitalism left in our once great society, never fails to surprise when it comes to premium prices for in-demand, short-supply items. The NES Classic Edition is no exception, but where we might expect to see the highly sought-after retro re-release selling for a few bucks more than its $60 MSRP, we instead see some truly outrageous price tags.
