Earlier this week we reported on the impressive fact that Sony has sold over 500 million total PlayStation consoles since the original PlayStation debuted in 1994. That got me thinking about another titan in the industry with an even longer history. Nintendo has officially released sales data for all of its major hardware releases since the Famicom in 1983, so I did a little digging to see what kind of numbers they've piled up over the years and how they compare to Sony's.

I know what some of you are thinking. "Why would you ever listen to music when you can enjoy the lovely soundtracks video games have to offer?" That's a fair point, and I used to agree with that.

No other video game series has touched my soul or inspired me more than The Legend of Zelda has. For both myself and many others I'm sure, this is the case. In terms of Zelda games that really are the full package combining innovative gameplay, lovely fantasy art styles, and powerful musical scores with impactful storytelling, the 3D entries come to mind. For many, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may be the new gold standard in those departments. But for me, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword still reigns supreme in all categories.

I'm willing to bet that's not going to be a popular opinion for a lot of people. So whether you are curious to see what my reasoning is or would rather comment about what an idiot I must be, jump into the full article and do whatever you please. By the grace of Hylia, I just ask you hear me—and this rare perspective—out.

Super Mario Odyssey is on the horizon, but for some fans like YouTube user Aurum, it is not enough. Such is the reason for the existence of "Neo Mario Galaxy," a fan-made modification to Super Mario Galaxy 2 that can be added to any homebrew-able Wii or Wii U. Featuring new creative and challenging Mario levels, this fanmade project might just be enough for Super Mario fiends to get their fix before the next official Mario platformer.

In 2011 Nintendo launched the "Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program," granting then-owners of the Nintendo 3DS exclusive access to twenty downloadable games. The program included ten NES games, which were later released to the public as Virtual Console games, and ten Game Boy Advance games, which remain exclusive to Ambassador Program members to this day.

At Nintendo's latest investor meeting, one investor asked whether Nintendo has thought about distributing these games publicly. Senior Executive Officer Satoshi Yamato responded, and though he neglected to answer specifically whether these Game Boy Advance games will make it to the 3DS' public Virtual Console space, he did offer a glimpse into how Nintendo may distribute classic games in the future.
