Windows Phone emulation fans might have noticed that three classic game system emulators have disappeared from the Store: SNES8x (a Super Nintendo emulator), VBA8 (a GameBoy Advance emulator), and VGBC8 (a Gameboy Color emulator). As of press time, the Windows 8 versions of the same apps are still available.

All three emulators came from a developer named M.k who publicly retired from mobile Windows development in August. M.k’s emulators previously vanished from the Store only to reappear shortly thereafter. Why have they gone away once more, and will they return once again? Windows Phone Central has the full scoop on the future of SNES8x, VBA8, and VGBC8. Head past the break for all the details!

Windows Phone Central Gaming Roundup: Billiards

Last week’s Windows Phone Central roundup dealt with bowling games for our Windows Phones.  At the suggestion of one of our readers (thanks newVariable), this week we turn our focus on another indoor sporting activity – billiards.

Billiards or pool games can be a fun way to pass the time with.  The challenge of the game will keep things interested and the genre is well suited for multi-player action.  We pulled four billiard games from the Windows Phone Store for this week’s roundup based on their Store ratings.  All three had merit and have their own level of appeal.

If we have missed your favorite Pool game, feel free to sound off in the comments below.

Rudy Huyn’s Snapchat client 6snap so far has survived being an unofficial clone of the popular messaging app. That’s the good news for those worried about an immediate copyright complaint.

Update: We are able to login now...

If you’re like us, turning your Xbox One on to log in is coughing up a 0x87DD0006 error. Evidently the Xbox Live Core Services for the One are down and out for the moment and it’s also affecting “Browsing the Xbox Video Store and the Xbox Music Store” (though that is fixed now).

Joe Belfiore is a man the community has come to know as the face of Windows Phone at Microsoft. He’s been on hand for all major previews and launches of the operating system and runs the team responsible for Windows Phone product definition and design.

Belfiore recently sat down with the BBC for an interview about the current growth in market share that Windows Phone is experiencing. He did this last week, but we missed it and figured a few of you might have missed it as well. There are some interesting points brought up by Belfiore that are worth pointing out. There’s also a video after the break and some highlights from the BBC interview.

Many people have had their trust shaken by the United States National Security Agency’s involvement with top technology companies around the globe including Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and many more. To this day, many people still feel at least a bit of lost faith towards the aforementioned technology giants and any personal data that they may hold.

The paranoia can be seen in Microsoft’s release of the Xbox One and its Kinect accessory – there was a vocal, but visible, minority that screamed the Kinect could be used by the NSA for spying purposes. But recently, Microsoft has announced major plans to increase encryption techniques on their own internet traffic to keep users more secure.

Although both Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One are expected to sell well over the holiday period, there will always be those who pick sides, wanting to see who does better. Will Microsoft’s “one” system sway shoppers over Sony? Or will both consoles break even? In reality, it doesn’t matter as both systems will be around for years to come, but in terms of stock, Microsoft may have the edge over the PlayStation.

Here in the United States we’re a day away from Thanksgiving. It’s a great time to get together with family and friends while taking a moment to reflect on things you’re thankful for. Things like smartphones, tablets, and Black Friday sales are things we’re quite thankful of. The Xbox One just came out last Friday, but there’s going to be some insane savings on games for the Xbox 360 on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Details after the break.

A few months ago, Lenovo announced their new Flex series of touch screen machines, the Flex 14 and Flex 15. While the line does offer up to the latest generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD, the Flex machines were not designed to be the hottest machines on the block – they were designed to fit a budget and came in at a starting price of $429. Now, Lenovo is back with another Flex model unit, the Flex 10.
