09/22/2011, George Lucas is still laughing all the way to the bank a few decades since he unleashed the Star Wars space opera on us, making millions upon millions with no signs of abating, even through he came up with a rather lame three-quel in the last decade. Well, deciding that his cash cow still had some milk left in it (plenty, it would seem if you read on), Star Wars: […]

07/07/2011, Home theaters are quite different from what they used to be back in the day. Instead of having to deal with just one type of medium for your media, consumers now have so many different choices where to get their entertainment from. While in the past this meant the need to purchase multiple players, it looks like we won’t have to anymore.
07/07/2011, PlayStation 3 owners who tend to buy secondhand games may not be too pleased with Sony’s new PSN Pass, a network “tollbooth” of sorts for some of Sony’s “premium” online services.

You could definitely burn a whole bunch of DVDs or CDs, but that would mean stacks loads of discs, and buying extra hard disk drives isn’t very practical, not to mention expensive. Uploading them […]
04/25/2011, If you’ve always wanted to invest in a Blu-ray 3D Disc player, what better ways to kick start your 3D Blu-ray Disc collection than purchasing a 3D Blu-ray player that comes with a free 3D Blu-ray disc?

04/15/2011, Normally, we’d say this is complete BS, but the fact that Blu-ray.com is throwing its two cents into the flames suggests there might be some merit. We’ve heard that Nintendo’s Wii 2/HD will be more powerful than the PS3 and Xbox 360. That’s within the realm of possibility, considering those consoles were built four to five years ago. A lot of advances have been made since. Historically, Nintendo’s always shied […]
04/11/2011, Asus scores another first with the BW-12D1S-U, where it is touted to be the fastest external 3D Blu-ray writer in the world. That title shouldn’t be too hard to earn considering how non-competitive this sector of peripherals are. Apart from making it easy to make the jump from DVD, the BW-12D1S-U is also proud to offer the most reliable Blu-ray burning performance – at least that is what the folks […]

04/04/2011, While Blu-ray disc drives are yet to become a common staple in most computers (let alone Blu-ray writers), Panasonic has announced the arrival of re-writable Blu-ray discs. The LM-BE100J BDXL Blu-rays are the world’s first rewriteable triple-layer Blu-ray discs.
