It's hard to say...
If its console firmwear updates and Virtual Console Releases I say go for it. They do have relevance to emulation. XBoxLive, PSN, WiiWare releases could also be relevant, particularly Megaman 9, but beyond that it's hard to say what gaming news would be related.

personally I think that general console news might be too much, how to put it.... bloat i guess. Now if the console news in somehow related to emulation (ie: a homebrew exploit or something) then that would be fine.

To make it clear, I'm not asking for a post each time a new game is released. I just asking for posts when, for exemple: "PS3 price drop announced", "New Wii firmware", or the release date of some games, like Metal Gear Solid 4, Final Fantasy XIII, popular games. We can also post news about, like Reaper man said, exploits in consoles, but I don't know if the console maker will like that... The news that Rattlehead posted is the kind of gaming news that I'm talking about. My main motivation for doing this is because emulators aren't as active as they used to be, which means less news on the front page.

I just want the emulation news.

There are plenty of gaming news sites out there that will provide AMPLE coverage of anything else.
