The big news today was that against all odds, Nintendo will be launching a new console this Holiday season after all- it just won’t be the NX. Instead, they will be launching the NES Classic Mini, a re-release of their first console, and the one tat revolutionized the gaming industry, bundling it with 30 games, all for a price point of $60.

Speaking on Twitter, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, confirmed that he will definitely buy the NES Mini, noting a necessity to keep older games playable. He also mentioned that an Xbox app on Mac could happen, but right now it is just a question of development priorities. How that would work, especially since the Xbox app is an integral component of the Xbox Anywhere ecosystem, is anybody’s guess (and really just a hypothetical question at this point).

Finally, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg also confirmed that Xbox has plans for San Diego Comic Can this year, that they will be sharing soon. I don’t think one can expect any new announcements from Xbox at Comic Con, but at the very least, there should be some upcoming Xbox games playable, if nothing else.
