Just like 'Pokémon Go,' the game's $35 Plus wearable needs some work — Pokémon Go fans have a new way to play the game: a $34.99 wearable device called Pokémon Go Plus that, much like the app itself, has its ups and downs. While it might not be quite as popular as it was in the weeks following its July launch, Pokémon Go is still breaking records.

Virtual reality fans are disappointed in Palmer Luckey's secret Trump fund — When you find out the enigmatic 24-year-old who built one of the first commercially viable virtual reality headsets also funds a pro-Trump political action group aimed at spreading anti-Hillary Clinton memes, you may feel like your worldview has shifted a bit.

'Clash Royale' unseats 'Pokémon Go' after 74 days at top of App Store — Pokémon Go has been unseated from the throne that really matters: top grossing on the U.S. App Store charts. Its spot was taken by free-to-play card battler Clash Royale, thanks to juice from its newest update, according to analyst group Sensor Tower.

Pokémon Go's smart Plus accessory goes on sale next Friday — To those dedicated Pokémon Go players still chasing creatures with their smartphones, help will come sooner than you think - for a price, of course. The Pokemon Go Plus, a smart accessory that connects to your phone with Bluetooth, is going on sale Sept. 16, Niantic Labs announced Thursday night.

Virtual reality now has Emmy winners, too — Virtual reality has official entered awards season territory.

'Super Mario Run' is for players of any skill level, says Miyamoto — One of the biggest shocks of Apple's iPhone 7 reveal event happened just as things was getting started, when famed Nintendo director Shigeru Miyamoto - creator of Mario - stepped onto the stage. Miyamoto introduced a Nintendo first: a Super Mario game built especially for a touch screen.

The PlayStation Neo is now the PlayStation 4 Pro — Sony's "PlayStation Neo," the company's 4K- and HDR-ready companion console, now has an official name: the PlayStation 4 Pro. At a press conference in New York on Wednesday, Sony highlighted how the console could fully take advantage of 4K televisions by showing highly detailed scenes, all rendered in game engines.

'Pokémon Go' is coming to the Apple Watch — The summer's - and maybe the decade's - most popular mobile game is now coming to the Apple Watch. Pokémon Go is getting a full Watch integration that will let players keep their iPhone in their pocket as they hunt for Pokémon.

Mario is finally coming to mobile in 'Super Mario Run' — Mario is finally leaping off Nintendo and onto mobile phones. Nintendo's famed director Shigeru Miyamoto was the first guest during Apple's iPhone 7 launch event Wednesday. The creator of Mario announced the plumber's first mobile title: Super Mario Run. The endless runner lets players take Mario across classic-looking stages, but using simple, one-touch controls.

5 questions we have before Sony's big PlayStation event — Sony executives and developers will take the stage Wednesday in New York for an ambiguously titled "PlayStation Meeting."
