Gamers,
Requesting advise from you. My son is 6 yrs old and has a liking for PC/mobile gaming just like many other kids his age. While I do not want to him to get hooked to gadgets full time, I do want him to know and experience some of the latest technologies in a controlled way. Also, I believe gaming does make him a quick thinker, which I have observed among many of my young colleagues who have excelled in their technical roles.

Doing some research online, I understand Sony PS4 and MS XBox one are some good choices in the market. Do you have any other suggestions? Do they both require monthly subscriptions? Which do you think have more kid friendly games?

Any comments greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          I am needing a 25-foot power adapter for a Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition.  Here is a link to check out exactly what I have just in case more information is needed  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IFJBQ1E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1    Unfortunately, the power adapter did not come with this console when purchased from Amazon.  That said, if someone could provide an online purchase link for one, it will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

I was given the attached Xbox 360 : never used it before.
Can Win10 alone be used to play with this item or will need
additional accessories/gadgets to be able to play.

Can point me to links for additional gadgets if needed.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

        I am wondering if I can possibly get the classic 80's game, Donkey Kong, for PlayStation 4.  From a previously closed post, I was pleasantly surprised that I could get Asteroids for PlayStation 4 and hoping to be able to do the same for Donkey Kong.  

         Thank you in advance for any review and feedback given in response to this question.  I look forward to seeing what everyone finds out.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

             I am wondering if the early 80's classic arcade game of Asteroids is available for PlayStation 4 or PS4.  If so, how may I go about purchasing and installing it on my current PS4 console?

              Thank you.

I think I might have got myself into something more involved than I imagined.

I know a family that is quite poor and they have two young children 5 years and 7 years old. They cannot afford anything as far as toys go. I found two toy guitars and thought that they would be a nice gift. When I got them home I found that they are not self contained items. It showed that a dongle with a usb plug was needed. I was able to locate the dongles. I assumed (incorrectly) that they simply plugged into a windows 10 machine and they would be useful "funwise" for the children.

As it turns out I am fairly sure that they MUST be used exclusively with a Nintendo Wii gaming box. I will buy a used Wii box if needed but I am wondering if there is any possibility that they can be used with appropriate software with a windows machine. Or, must I buy a used Wii box? I am determined to see a smile on the faces of these two boys if I can get these "guitars" to function.

Nintendo named them "Fender Stratocaster" guitars. I don't now how they got away with that, but it does identify what items I have to work with. Does any expert have any bright ideas on how to implement these two items without any further major expense? Suggestions most welcome. Note: I am NOT a gamer and have no experience with any sort of gaming box.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             I am interested in locating and purchasing an Atari joystick with integrated classic games especially Donkey Kong Classic, the 1981 version.  It is my understanding that such gaming systems are out there and will interface with the television set.  That said, could someone help me out with respect to locating an Atari system with joystick and Donkey Kong 1981 built into it?

              Thank you

I must be missing something simple.  I had a customer bring in an Xbox One S that the Blu-Ray Drive would not read discs.  I first attempted to swap the laser, but this did not repair it.  So, I ordered the complete optical drive.  I have swapped out the daughter boards (soldering) and installed the drive in the console.  It now reads DVD's, but it does not read or at least attempt to load the Xbox One game I have.  Suggestions?

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

As I am a newbie in the gaming world and I am searching for the best platform to enhance my gaming level. One of my closest friends suggested me to buy consoles because it has remarkable digital graphics and other friends are suggesting me to buy a PC because its price is affordable, but I want the best. I searched the online website for more details where I get some solutions. I will be thankful if my query would solve here.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

              With the huge varieties of Nintendo gaming consoles, making the right choice can be confusing at best.  That said, I am interested in some recommendations for choosing the right one for playing such 80's classics like Donkey Kong, Mario originals, etc.  If possible, I would like for recommended Nintendo gaming consoles to have some classic 80's games, especially Donkey Kong and Mario originals, to either be integrated or come with it.   While I do have a PlayStation 4 gaming console, it is my understanding that I will not be able to play Donkey Kong or Mario on it.  At any rate, if someone could get back with me regarding this question, it will greatly be appreciated.

               Thank you

I am interested in looking for a vouce changer that could effectively make me sound like different low and high pitched humans.

While its originally for a class project I will certainly like to have fun with my friends.

I've heard of a few things but a lot didn't work very well. Currently I only have a phone but I can get a computer eventually.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I can not access any web page within my PS4 gaming console because of the following error message:  The security of the page cannot be confirmed.  The certificate provided by the server is invalid.  Do you want to display the page?  No Yes Display Certificate.  Regardless of any of the three options selected,  there is not an option to fix it.

           Any help given in reply to this question will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

Also, does xbox one s support 3d bluray dvd playback of all regions?

Please reply to this question asap.

Thanks for your help and support.

Customer brought in an Xbox One that is having the strangest issue I've ever seen.  She brought me 4 different controllers, 2 new, 2 old.  All of them will pair (eventually) with the Xbox and work.  But they only work on an average of 2-5 minutes before they lose connection and drop.  Then they will reconnect themselves.  

I can get at least 15 feet away and they still work (if currently working).  A straight USB cable connection to the unit works flawlessly with no issues.

I have reset the console in an attempt to fix this issue, including wiping all settings and signing back into the customers account.  The issue still persists.  Suggestions?

Hi,

I'm looking around for a game console for 2 kids (6 & 8, one loves football, the other is a dancing girl).
So I know there is Nintento Playstation, Microsoft XBox (one, S, 360 ... and even Windows10??? not sure what differences are?) and WII.
Then there is also the Kinect, what I love as an idea.

Have read something about it and saw two games which are great "Just Dance" and "Kinectimals" which look great fun to me.
Also being able to play with multiple persons (whole family or friends) seems great (f.e. dancing or bowling).

Now I think I have to go for the Kinect, so then XBox is my choice (if you do not agree, let me know), I have a spare Windows 10 laptop (Dell E7250) which I could use ... to run these games? Then I might also find them online somewhere (games)?
Then I only need to buy the Kinect and the games. I do already have Netflix and mediaplayer on TV so those features are not needed. Will not play myself any fancy games (I guess, never played before) so what would be the best option here?


Any input welcome!
J.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

             I have recently purchased a Playstation 4 console with controller.  At this point, I seem to have more questions than answers about it despite of my enjoyment of it.  One important question which I have and confident that someone will be able to answer is the following:  How can I upgrade my browser within PS4?  To be perfectly honest. I am not even sure which browser the PS4 console is using by default.  

             Any feedback regarding the step by step procedures for upgrading the default browser of PS4 will be greatly appreciated.

             Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I will be purchasing a PS4 console with controller this month.  It is my understanding the PS4 controller can be used wireless after being fully charged which brings me to this upcoming question.  Will the wireless PS4 controller cause any interference with my AT&T wireless setup at home used for internet access?

          Thank you
