Digiex member Hoffman has posted up a great editorial on how Amazon Video are abusing their marker position.

Everyone will remember 2016 as the year that 4K and HDR became mainstream. Amazon beat Netflix to it and started producing all its original content in the format and making it available for the masses. The later part of the year and the release of the Grand Tour which at least for International Markets was the biggest win for Amazon further pushed this message as all content was available in 4K with full 10-bit HDR support (via HDR10).

However it seems Amazon doesn't follow one of the basic principles which its competitor Netflix follows which is to remain out of the hardware wars. Click to read more......

Yes the title might sound a little crazy, however it's as legit as it comes. JaralStudio have managed to sneak a fully functional GBA emulator on to the Xbox Store, disguised as a PDF Viewer. Not only that, since publishing this article it turns out they have also published a PlayStation 1 emulator and a Nintendo 64 emulator too!
To install these emulators on your Xbox One you can do the following:
  1. Go to the store and search for one of the above apps
  2. You then have to buy the app in question
  3. Then simply let it download and install on your Xbox One
Once installed load up the app you purchased on your Xbox One, it will look just like a PDF Viewer, however press LB & RB + LT & RT. This will unlock the hidden emulator.

The emulators are capable of loading roms from a USB hard drive, or your OneDrive account.

This probably won't last too long as Microsoft has recently banned emulators from the Windows 10 and Xbox One store, however for now if you want a bit a retro action on your Xbox One, it's now more than possible.

The Nintendo Switch might only have been released today, however Digiex has not one, but two guides for Nintendo’s new Switch console.

The first guide will teach you how to setup an account from another region, allowing you to purchase games exclusive to certain regions. This also has the advantage of allowing you to purchase games more cheaply depending on the current currency conversion rates.

As you might know the Nintendo Switch doesn’t have a web browser accessible to the end user, however there is one hidden away in the system, used for authentication with public Wi-Fi hotspots via a webpage.

With a little DNS hack you can load any webpage you desire on the Nintendo Switch, we can confirm Digiex loads perfectly! This trick could also be useful for hackers trying to exploit the switch via webkit exploits. As we have seen over the last couple of years, exploits in the webkit browser engine have enabled 3DS, Wii U, PS Vita and PS4 hacks, so this could be a great way to start poking about at the inner workings on the Nintendo Switch.

Today Pokemon Go developer Niantic announced that 80 new Pokemon are coming to Pokemon Go later this week. The new Pokemon will be from the Johto region found on GameBoy games Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal. This means it will finally be possible to obtain Pokemon such as Chikorita, Cyndaquil and Totodile.

Niantic state that Pokemon Go will also have new encounter gameplay, when you encounter Pokémon in the wild, don’t be surprised if they react in new ways as you’re trying to catch them. You’ll also notice the addition of new item carousels that allow you to select Berries and Poké Balls directly from the encounter screen.

In addition new berries will also be introduced. Trainers will have the opportunity to get two new Berries by spinning the Photo Disc at PokéStops—Nanab Berries and Pinap Berries! Giving a Pokémon a Nanab Berry will slow its movements, making it easier to catch. The Pinap Berry doubles the amount of Candy you’ll receive if your next catch attempt succeeds.

A new new avatars and an expanded Wardrobe will also be introduced, allowing trainers to give their avatar a complete upgrade, with a whole new selection of hats, shirts, pants, and other items.

Are you still playing Pokemon Go? if so what do you think about this new update?

The Humble Overwhelmingly Positive Bundle is the latest bundle of PC games from Humble Bundle. Humble Bundles are offered at a pay-what-you-want model.

We like the Humble Bundles here at Digiex as the purchaser is able to name any price for the bundle, with the option to determine how to distribute the money they paid for that bundle. The purchaser can choose to split the money between the developers, the charities for that event and even give a Humble tip or have all the money go to charity if the purchaser desires.

In this bundle you can pay what you want for:
  • Shantae and the Pirate's Curse
  • Epic Battle Fantasy 4
  • Pony Island
If you pay more than the average price you will also unlock the following games:
  • Day of the Tentacle Remastered
  • DEADBOLT
  • Bit Blaster XL
  • Refunct
Finally, if you contribute more than $10 you will also get:
  • VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action
  • N++ (NPLUSPLUS)
As always you get a lot of games for very little money, so great value for games, plus you are also support charity in the process. I personally think this bundle is worth it along for Day of the Tentacle Remastered.

At Digiex we have always tried to focus more on obscure content the larger mainstream sites don't cover, such as how to transfer your GameBoy Pokemon saves to the 3DS and keep rare things accessible to all that that might randomly get shared once, then erased off the internet never to be seen again.

With that in mind its only natural we have had some very rare Pokemon related content on Digiex for a number of years, however over the last year the amount of Pokemon content Digiex has archived significantly increased.

As I spent 2016 randomly playing through the older Pokemon games, trying to complete a living Pokedex and gather rare event Pokemon i'd missed over the years, it became apparent their was a lot of Pokemon content that should be on Digiex.

So as i played though the Pokemon games I started posting up content that I had found useful as I progressed though the games. I also started working on a Pokemon GEN 3 Legit Event Pokemon Save with HaxAras. This is probably now the largest collection of GEN 3 Event Pokemon that's publicly accessible.

Then towards the end of the year the Pokemon Community got a very nice Christmas present, some ultra rare Pokemon GBA distributions released by Deoxyz. Following on from that came an avalanche of Pokemon Nintendo DS event distributions which certain people had manage to collect over the years and finally bring together.

With that in mind this post is a thank you to all the people who have shared all the Pokemon related content listed below over the years. I think the amount of Pokemon related content people have come together to preserve deserves to be featured,...

Myself and Nimrod have spent the day upgrading the forum software from vBulletin 4 to XenForo, we have been planning this for around 6 months now and finally went for the upgrade today. As you can see we're backup and running on XenForo with everything imported nicely.

Some things might well not work as expected at the moment, we still have things to finalise and improve, however the hardest part is done and it's all minor improvements we can make from now on without taking Digiex offline again. For example we want to make it easy to tell apart threads which have been pinned to the top like we had on vBulletin, along with restoring the downloads and guide buttons which were on our top navigation menu.

You will find now Digiex is a secure https site and in addition responsive, so will adapt to the size of the device you are browsing on.

For the end user you should be able to have a generally more modern forum experience, private messages will be in threads like SMS messages on modern smart phones, you will get notification for various events on the forum, such as someone quoting you, or linking one of your posts.

Please do report any bugs and constructive feedback to us and we will do our best to address these, both myself and Nimrod work full time and work on Digiex as a hobby, so please bear with us :)

More than anything we hope your experience will generally be a lot smoother, thank you for sticking with us!
