Gamecube-Style Switch Controller The Nintendo Switch, while home to different good games over the years, also had its fair share of performance issues. From the hardware not capable of handling some games to the very prominent issue of joy-con drifting, multiple companies had tried their hand at providing players with third-party solutions for this problem.One of them is NYXI, which has jumped the waters of developing retro-styled Switch controllers. If you’re familiar with Gulikit and 8BitDo, then you have a fair idea of what we’re talking about (aside from seeing the photo we’ve included above). The NYXI Wizard Wireless Joy-Pad is pretty and reminds us of the Gamecube era, sure. But what we like about it is the drift-free Hall effect sensors included in them. These sensors use magnets to solve the issue of stick drift in older consoles (eg. Sega Saturn 3D). Its application in NYXI’s newest controllers means that they will not be prone to wear and tear plaguing the Switch joy-cons in the market. Not only will you get to equip some cool-looking joycons for your Switch, but you will also get to have more durable hardware for gaming!

The Best Selling Video Game Consoles in HistoryDespite the advancement of gaming devices, no other console has recorded more sales than Sony’s PlayStation 2. And get this: the iconic console has been discontinued since 2013. Throughout its lifetime, PS2 racked up 157,68 million in global sales. Following closely behind is rival Nintendo’s portable console Nintendo DS with nearly 155 million global lifetime sales.A major factor in PS2’s popularity was its DVD-friendly feature. Remember DVD, the disc that you used to watch movies on? Back in the PS2’s heyday, the console was cheaper than an actual DVD player in many places. PS2 was also one of the first devices to be backward compatible. It allowed gamers to play most of their PS1 games on PS2, eliminating the necessity to buy a whole new set of games as well as retaining the fanbase.Though long hath the king reigned on top, eventually it’ll have to concede. Now, the top contender to possibly take that #1 spot happens to be Nintendo Switch. In early 2022, the console broke the record for fastest 100 million units sold.Check out the full list of the best-selling video game console of all time over at Visual Capitalist.#GamingConsole #Nintendo #PlayStation #PS2 #Sony #NintendoDS #gaming #NintendoSwitchImage: vgchartz.com/Enrique Mendoza Tincopa @datavizadventure
