New game platform: (original) Kindle
We're continuing to launch new formats we missed, and after blasting off on Arcade, and a good start for the Ouya (already quite a few games in there!), we're continuing by adding games for Amazon's Kindle e-reader. You should now be able to select 'Kindle' as an option when adding.
[But a very important note. This is for the games for the original Kindle reader featured here and not for Kindle Fire. Kindle Fire is simply an Android device which doesn't have many/any exclusive titles, so you can add Kindle Fire App Store games, but add them as Android.]
Following the adding of the arcade platform, we're trying to add a number of other missing game platforms - starting with the Ouya. This Android-based game console has a number of phone/tablet conversions, but also quite a few original games - go ahead and contribute Ouya titles to our database today!
We are now _officially_ rolling out the arcade game format for MobyGames contributions - both adding arcade to existing platforms (there's quite a lot of that to be done!) and also adding brand-new arcade only games. This has been a long time coming, and congrats to everyone who lobbied for it - we're going to make it work! List of games so far is right here, forum thread for discussion and issues is here - go for it!
The Weekly Whale - MobyGames Site News, Week of Jan. 12th
And we're back again with the third MobyGames weekly newsletter updates, featuring Trek, Battle Chess, Lego Island, MAT, DOTA 2, and a sneaky preannounce on arcade as a MobyGames format - check it out right here.
Unveiled at CES 2014 and called PlayStation Now, it will allow gamers to play PlayStation games on other PlayStation models, tablets, phones and even TVs with Sony's upcoming 'smart TVs' being the first to offer the service.
It works by streaming games from its library directly to a device from Sony's online servers. Games being demoed at CES include Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us, but there's no word on how much of the PlayStation back catalog will be offered at launch.
Sony is due to start restricted tests later this month, with launch aimed at this coming summer.
