HBO’s “8-bit Christmas” gives NES Power Glove another shot in the glory of the movie

Do you remember power gloves?It was almost a nasty way to interact with the game during the NES era and became immortal in the 1989 Hollywood movie. Wizard.. Since then, it’s become like a cult object in the gaming world, stimulating a longing for older gamers (and feature-length documentaries), but this highly malicious peripheral is HBO’s upcoming festive film. I’m getting another chance of movie fame, thanks to 8-bit Christmas..

Set in the late 80’s, the film tells the quest for a boy to get a Nintendo entertainment system. This is the most popular item for self-respecting children. But alas! The NES are sold out everywhere, so 10-year-old Jake Doyle embarked on a mission to secure the NES.

Here are some PRs:
