    GameStop today reassured investors that the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic does not yet seem to be threatening the year-end launches of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
    In a post-earnings conference call with investors, GameStop CEO George Sherman said there was no indication yet that the pandemic would have an impact on the planned fourth-quarter launches of the two consoles, either in when they go on sale or when GameStop takes delivery on them from the console makers.

    2. Nintendo Switch

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game in Japan.
    According to Famitsu data, the title sold 1.88 million games in just three days in the country. By comparison, the previous 3-day Switch record was held by Pokémon Sword and Shield, which sold over 1.36 million copies (both games combined). The previous standalone game record was Super Smash Bros Ultimate, which managed 1.24 million units in three days.
    The game's sales far outstripped the opening performance of its predecessor, Animal Crossing: New Leaf on 3DS. That game achieved just under 722,000 sales during its opening three days.

    The National Videogame Museum is under threat of permanent closure as the UK enters lockdown to contain the spread of coronarvirus (COVID-19).
    Following its busiest week ever, the NVM took early advice from the UK government and closed last week to protect staff and visitors.
    However, the closure has put the museum's future in doubt as it struggles to finance itself without visitors.
    The British Games Institute, which operates the NVM, has launched an urgent appeal to save the nation's only dedicated video game museum.
    Opened in November 2018, the NVM hosted over 40,000 visitors throughout last year and takes in thousands of children on school visits.
    Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz at the grand opening, museum director Iain Simons said it would be "the centre of gravity for the past, present and future of video games with the broader public."
    Last week was the museum's busiest to date, and the NVM says it had been planning an "ambitious programme celebrating games studios and games culture in 2020/21."
    The BGI is asking for donations to secure the museum's future, while companies are urged to contact the charity and become permanent patrons.

    2. Xbox News,
    3. PS4

    We know a lot more about both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X this week than we did last week. Both Sony and Microsoft have started laying cards on the table; the similarities between their devices -- which both derive from essentially the same AMD-sourced CPU and GPU architecture -- have been known for a long time, but now we're starting to see the all-important differences.
    The merits of the big technical differences -- the Series X has a notably punchier GPU, while the PS5 has opted for a significantly faster SSD -- are going to be hotly debated by experts for months, and even more hotly debated by clueless people for literally years. While I don't wish to understate the technical edge Microsoft's hardware has in this match-up -- about 20% more raw graphical power, it seems -- the reality is that we won't know for certain how much of a difference these hardware design decisions have made until we start seeing finished games running on production hardware, which remains months away.
    What we can see for now, however, is a very real difference in the strategic approach being taken by these two companies -- not just to their consoles, but to the whole process of communicating about those consoles to the public.
    Aside from price point information, there's remarkably little about the Xbox Series X we don't know
    What's arguably just as interesting as the cards we're starting to see laid on the table, then, is which cards are being laid and when. Microsoft and Sony are playing very different games in this regard; the former is being extremely open, to the point of having allowed the media to play with and film a "snap-together" version of its Xbox Series X hardware showing all the internal components, not to mention having shown off final console and controller designs, and a number of core features of the new system software.
    This is, as far as I can recall, a genuinely unprecedented level of openness for a system that's not set to launch until this winter. Aside from the crucial price point information, there's remarkably little about the Xbox Series X we don't know already.
    Sony, by contrast, is playing a more traditional game. We know more about PS5 after Mark Cerny's presentation this week -- we know a lot more detail about its hardware performance and functionality -- but we have yet to see much of the consumer-relevant stuff about the console. We don't know about its price, of course -- muttered rumours about trouble with keeping down the manufacturing costs aside -- but we also don't know about the system software, the launch exclusives, or crucially, the physical design of the hardware.

    2. Wii U News

    Cemu v1.17.3 is released. Cemu is a Nintendo Wii U emulator that runs commercial games. Highly experimental software to emulate Wii U applications on PC.

    Cemu Changelog:
    general: Added a workaround for Cemu not launching on Windows 10 1709
    general: Added button for checking online mode requirements to account settings

    gamelist: Improved identification of updates/dlc
    gamelist: Games which are identified as an update will again show up in the list, but only if no base game is found
    This is a workaround for modified game dumps where the update data was merged into the base game. Please always use the File -> Install update/dlc option in Cemu
    gamelist: Fixed a bug where a game could appear more than once if multiple game paths were set

    CPU/JIT: Code translation (PPC -> x64) is now done asynchronously on a separate thread
    The previous implementation would do translation synchronously on the CPU emulation thread.
    This could lead to micro stutter in situations where a game hit a lot of new code (e.g. on first loading screen)

    OpenGL/Vulkan: Added a safeguard to prevent crashes when games try to use a depth texture with an invalid format
    Vulkan: Fixed an issue where depth to color texture copies would use the wrong shader

    coreinit: Fixed a crash in OSCalendarTimeToTicks (#268)

    nn_boss: Fixed SpotPass always assuming an id of 80000001 instead of using the one selected by the user

    (#xx) refers to bug tracker issues resolved by this change. See http://bugs.cemu.info/projects/cemu/

    byuu v3 is released. byuu is a multi-system emulator that focuses on accuracy and ease-of-use. It is currently in early release beta status. byuu is an upcoming multi-system emulator that aims to provide the accuracy of higan, with the ease-of-use of bsnes. It seeks to accomplish this by catering to the common 99% of use cases, rather than higan, which tries to cater to every niche. As such, certain advanced functionality will not be available in byuu; however, the emulator will be significantly easier to use, like bsnes.

    Planned roadmap:
    v1: support for gamepad mapping and the save state manager
    v2: support for other controller types (mice, light guns) and multiple-players
    v3: support for Famicom Disk System, Super Game Boy, and Sega CD emulation
    v?: support for per-system input mapping, cheat codes, movie recording, and run-ahead functionality
    v?+X: optional scanline renderers for each core to boost performance substantially
    v?+Y: additional emulation cores from outside of higan (PS1, Saturn, N64 would be most promising!)

    byuu v1.1 changelog:
    Famicom: emulated the X24C01 EEPROM for Bandai-FGC boards (no X24C02 support yet)
    Mega CD: CDC PCM DMA can only write to current bank [EkeEke]
    Mega CD: CDC DMA address setting now clears d0-d2 for proper transfer alignment [EkeEke]
    Mega CD: improve power-cycle handling (not perfect; best to restart the emulator between each Mega CD game still ...)
    PC Engine: trigger VDC coincidence IRQs at start of scanline (fixes Bomberman '94, Air Zonk start screen rendering issues)
    PC Engine: improved RCR interrupt emulation (fixes Air Zonk in-game)
    PC Engine: fix VDC DCR writes (fixes Gaia no Monshou, Magical Chase, etc)
    PC Engine: reduced VDC access delays (fixes Wonder Momo, but may not be hardware accurate)
    PC Engine: improved instruction timing
    PC Engine: added Avenue Pad 6 emulation (higan only for now)
    WonderSwan: window emulation improvements
    byuu: BIOS firmware settings window improvements
    byuu: can now load firmware from inside ZIP archives
    byuu: added trace logging tool
    byuu: added manifest viewer tool
    byuu: add path overrides for saves, BPS patches, and DSP firmware files
    higan: fixed a serious issue with the "Create New System" option from the launch screen
    nall: fixed a subtle yet important issue with Natural/Integer::bit() that allowed out-of-range bits to be set
