Nintendo just announced that SD cards working in collaboration with its brand new SD storage solution can store up to 240 games.
That’s a large number. Nintendo’s been liking the large numbers pretty well lately.

The UK’s Princess Anne formally opened the Paddington Academy today.
The specialist school for performing arts, media, business and enterprise was co-funded by the United Learning Trust and GamesAid.

“The Academy has been one of the focal points for money raised by our industry over a number of years,” said ELSPA chairman Andy Payne. “It’s a very proud day for everyone involved and a real thrill to be here to witness such a positive learning environment.

“We’re in the business of providing great games to a broad audience of gamers, and we need to be able to fulfil that role by getting products to consumers quickly and at a good price,” said Thompson in an interview with GI.
“We’re concerned with any measures that would mean this process is made more unwieldy, or incurs additional costs which have to be shared with the consumer.”
Brilliant news that, I’m sure you’ll all agree.

Stanford University School of Medicine researchers have shown that the reason men get turned on by games more than women is that, for some reason, hey find the whole process more rewarding. The part of the brain that generates feeling of reward is more active in men men playing a game than it is in women, their study found.
“These gender differences may help explain why males are more attracted to, and more likely to become ‘hooked’ on video games than females,” the researchers wrote.
And we just thought it was because men liked to shoot things. Full thing here.
