New Clover Green Edition Xbox Duke Controller Hits the Shelves!

New Clover Green Edition Xbox Duke Controller Hits the Shelves!
Published by: forahobby on Friday, September 21, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Xbox One,

Hyperkin has announced that the Hyperkin Duke will come in translucent green aka “Clover” for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs - and it's available now!

Xbox Duke Controller - New Clover Green Edition Hits the Shelves!

Celebrating the one year anniversary of the Xbox in Europe - the Translucent Green Limited Edition Xbox console was first released in May 2003. Now Hyperkin's latest version of the popular Xbox Duke Controller is available in the same iconic cladding. Officially Licensed by Microsoft and Xbox One/Windows 10 compatible, the Hyperkin Duke controller in Green is a faithful recreation of the original - with added capability and a unique extra feature! It's time for a hands-on history lesson.

What sets the Hyperkin Duke apart from any other "retro" controller? When a player wants a nostalgia kick, all they need to do is press the Xbox button and the original Xbox animated startup screen will play right inside the button. This was no easy task for Hyperkin Product Developer, Chris Gallizzi, although the experience is one he’d never forget.

Features

  • Original animated Xbox startup screen played right inside the Xbox button
  • Bumpers that mirror the Black and White buttons
  • 9 ft. detachable USB cable (required to use controller)
  • 3.5 mm headset jack
  • Option and View buttons

The new Green Duke is reminiscent of the Translucent Green Limited Edition Xbox console which was first released back in May 2003. It will retail at the same price as the original black model at £69.99.


The Hyperkin Duke Controller in Green is available now from FunstockRetro.co.uk and Amazon!

Ez-Flash Omega Reviewed For Nintendo GBA/NDS

Ez-Flash Omega Reviewed For Nintendo GBA/NDS
Published by: Scarface on Thursday, June 28, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew,

Hello, fellow gamer's the guys over at Shop01Media have hooked us up with EZ-Flash Omega to have a look at and review. The Ultimate GBA/NDS Flash Cart which has amazing features, support of a 128gb Micro SD Card which is overkill but awesome just all the same and Instant Game Save feature.



EZ-Flash Omega Feature

The biggest new, very cool feature is instant saving games. The direct save is native builtin, hardware emulated, works with clean mode, no need to patch or hotkey save. it works without battery completely

So the Ez-Flash Omega is an easy flash cart to use with many options and features, I have my card reader and a 32gb Micro SD Card, First I went over to Ez-Flash Website and downloaded any updates and followed their easy manual on how to update and the controls of Ez-Flash. After that, I loaded some of my games onto the sd card and I am very impressed this makes things so much easier than carrying a bunch of cartridges around and boot times are super fast.

The instant save feature is amazing and works as they directed which is after you save wait a few seconds before shutting off so it gives time for it to write to the sd card. They also have a download for cheats. I have not tried this personally as I really never use it but might be a great feature for others. My 32gb Micro SD is a bit of an overkill but I always like to have that extra room. Again the Ez-Flash Omega is really easy to use even for a beginner, I was up and running in less than 5 minutes. That's without even knowing anything about how to use a flash cart. Now I have an amazing flash cart with all my games on one card allowing me to free up some space in my travel bag when I go camping or those long drives perfect investment. Now I just need to get a Back Lit Mod for my GBA to make it the ultimate little portable gaming machine.

Let's take a closer look at the features:

  • GBA game copy and play, no client needed
  • Fast patch engine, instat game load speed, additional manual patch engine to support modified rom
  • Hardware based direct save to SD card
  • Cheat
  • Save states
  • Real time clock
  • Sleep
  • Hotkey customizable
  • 256Mb PSRAM suppot all game instant load
  • 512Mb Norflash, keep your favorite games
  • System on chip level recovery mode, prevent upgrade dead
  • Firmware and kernel both are upgradable
  • GB/GBC/NES game copy and play
  • Support FAT16/FAT32/EXFAT
  • Support for 128Mb - 128GB Micro SD memory cards
  • Compatible with all GBA
  • Can be used on NDS and NDS Lite consoles with GBA games.
  • Compatible with 99% of GBA and NDS games.
  • Can be used on NDS and NDS Lite consoles with NDS games if a pass me device is used (not the NDS flash cart but it works).
If you guy's are looking for a great place to go to get your gaming products, check out Shop01Media, they're very helpful and ship to a whole bunch of places around the world. The Shop01Media website has a large selection for most consoles (retro and new). Shipping is pretty fast from them and does not take to long. I have personally bought quite a few products from them and have always been happy. Finally, they also have Xecuter SX Pro and Xecuter SX OS for the Nintendo Switch.

Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Xbox One,

Bree White, Global Product Marketing Manager on the Xbox Team, shares details about the new Combat Tech Special Edition controller releasing later this month.

Xbox Wireless Controller Combat Tech Special Edition

Today, we’re excited to announce the third controller in the Tech Series, the Xbox Wireless Controller – Combat Tech Special Edition.

Pre-Order Xbox Wireless Controller – Combat Tech Special Edition from Microsoft Store

The Xbox Wireless Controller – Combat Tech Special Edition embodies a traditional army color palette with its classic Military Green base color (the same Military Green offered through Xbox Design Lab), bright orange accents and military insignia. Like the Recon Tech and Patrol Tech controllers that came before it, the Combat Tech controller features a textured laser-etched grip on the front of the controller and rubberized diamond grips on the back to help you stay on target. In select regions, you’ll get 14-day trials for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.

Xecuter CR4 and DGX(RGX) Xbox 360 Mods Reviewed

Xecuter CR4 and DGX(RGX) Xbox 360 Mods Reviewed
Published by: scarface on Sunday, February 11, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox 360,

Our friend's over at Shop01media sent out a couple of RGH Chips to test out.

The first one is Xecuter DGX V1.0S

This is also known as the RGX as it was first only used to pull the key for slims only good for slims also for the RGH But with Xecuter releasing a couple tweaked files its like having a ck3 pro but better.



The second one is Xecuter CR4


Tools:
- Soldering Iron
- Soldering Knowledge (practice makes perfect ha) J-R Programmer V2



PC Software:
- Jrunner (Download)

Install Tutorials:
- DGX
- CR4

**Check in Jrunner Folder there is a diagram for both DGX(RGX) and CR4 and a lot of helpful info.**

How the DGX became the RGX:
RGX

Xbox 360s I installed them too
- Trinity (DGX)
- Corona (CR4)

The items arrived well packaged and they shipped perfectly with no damage. Shop01media ships worldwide which is nice for lots of people trying to find a good place to get real xecuter chips or other modding products. They have a variety of products from Nintendo GC to PS4 and of course Xbox to Xbox One products Big list of items nice layout has prices in DKK, EUR, NOK, PLN, GBP, SEK, USD so you can look at without having to guess. But now onto the products I received.

So i installed the DGX (RGX) in a trinity that was being very stubborn and couldn't get it to glitch for the life of me no matter what i set it to and how good my soldering was this would just not boot. Well with this installed i was able to out of 10 glitches it would glitch within 1-2 glitches about 5-10 secs this would have my console booting i am very well surprised that this chip was able to make that much of a difference and is worth every penny to me. There is several timing files for the trinity and corona that are used with different resistors you find the right set and you are golden and that tutorial they state what to try first i got lucky and did the first set and worked perfect so i did not need to test further as 5-15 sec boots are amazing to me and i am just super stoked that this chip allowed me to do this to my trinity as it was sitting in storage for the longest time, tried multiple chips and this one worked perfect out of them all. If you ever had installed any previous Xecuter glitch chip this one is just as easy as the others.



Now with the CR4 on my corona i am not big fan of the Corona boards as well there is so many versions and before you go and try buying stuff you think you need, first thing you should do is take the xbox apart and figure out what version you have and this will help and save money in the long run. I by far am a big Xecuter fan as they make top notch products that hold many years to come and it proves that with my original Xbox X3 and X2 Modchips still working today. I do not knock others I will be testing other brands here in the next few months to also give my honest feedback and just like Xecuter, even though I like their products if I find something that I don't like i speak my mind. This chip works just as great and i actually tested this out in my corona and also a standard phat 360 (little bit slower on the phats but not by much on boot times this was with no tweaking so if I was to tweak it some I could get amazing boot speeds but i just wanted to test it really fast) my corona boots in about 15 seconds, this I am happy with and install was easy with the guidance of the tutorials on Jrunner itself. This one is a good overall for both the phat and slim Xbox 360's and boots really fast (5 to 15 secs) There is so much tweaking options on the CR4 in time i will see if i can slim that time down but myself i don't like to spend hours on something that boots 2-5 secs when 5-15 seconds is not that long lol. But this option is there for those that want to really fine tweak there console.



If you have a trinity that is really struggling with boot times and/or no booting the DGX(RGX) is going to be the cure for you and I would get them while you can before they get sold out. I am going to be buying a few myself here soon just because of how many hours i spent on trying to get this one i have now to boot in a decent amount of time or to boot at all this chip was able to fix both issues and give me great boot speeds and also if you having issues for some reason Use a 50cm - 70cm to post_out and this should fix the issue.

CR4 overall a great all around chip for both phat and slim Xbox 360s with many tweaking options all in one chip itself in my book is also a great purchase and time saving chip as i just dumped my nands and installed xex and did the custom dash and set it to what they said in jrunner for my type of board and like i said it boots within 5 to 15 secs and i am happy with this.

I have also ordered from Shop01media and i am based in the usa and they will anwser any questions you have before hand and help guide you to the best choice and again have a great selection in many different consoles and world wide shipping. So if you need anything Xbox related or PlayStation or even Nintendo check them out amazing selection.
