10/20/2009, Folks living in Europe might tend to get stuff later than the rest of the world, but this time round our friends in Europe will be laughing all the way across the Atlantic as Nintendo UK will be offering a limited edition black Wii bundle that is heading their way this November 6th, where it will also come along with Wii Sports Resort alongside a Wii MotionPlus dongle to get […]
10/20/2009, For home console sales in the US, of course, as it narrowly lost to the nigh formidable Nintendo DS by a narrow margin, moving 491,800 PS3s last month thanks to a price drop and a rejuvenated form factor, edging out Nintendo’s Wii that stood at 462,800 units with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 lagging behind at 352,600 units. Do you think that this sales figure will taper off in the coming months, […]
10/20/2009, Ben Heck has turned the PS3 Slim into something different, with a 17″ Gateway 1775W display as its chassis. This on-the-go “gaming laptop” comes with enough storage space for a power cord, a front slot loading Blu-ray drive for you to insert your game discs and Blu-ray movies, and a fan grill to make sure the whole thing doesn’t overheat and brick. Ben Heck is a true modern wonder when […]
10/19/2009, At CEATEC 09, we noticed that Sony’s new obsession is 3D, most notably with TVs and projectors, but look at this: it is a holographic display that would allow you to move around and see the side or back of the object. The prototype will be shown at Digital Contents Expo in Tokyo. Given the shape of the object, I bet that there’s something spinning in there and it might […]
10/18/2009, We’ve seen the pink colored Xbox 360 controller that Microsoft is offering, but we have admit, it doesn’t come close to this one that modded by Flickr user 4apples. Apparently he created it as a gift for his girlfriend, and once she sees the controller, we’re fairly sure she’s going to be a very happy lady. What do you think of it?
10/17/2009, Did you ever want a game controller that would strike fear into your opponent’s heart? Well, this samurai gaming controller might not do that, but it certainly looks uncomfortable enough to look at (let alone use), so that’s certainly an edge for you, unless you’re weird enough to be using the controller yourself. In case you were wondering, the eyes glow green, and the face mask is removable, just to […]
10/17/2009, Still looking for a way to play that stack of old Genesis games that you have stored in the attic? Well, the good news is that you can play them again, and in portable fashion no less, thanks to the new GenMobile by AtGames, which is fully licensed from Sega. Being able accept all your Genesis cartridges is a big plus point, especially if you’ve managed to rack up a […]
10/16/2009, Nyko has added a few more colors to their Wii wands, where you can choose from a quartet of colors including blue and pink Wiimotes just like how Nintendo has rolled out those colors officially in Japan. Expect Nyko’s offerings to come with a $29.99 price point – anyone going to pick tis one up?
10/15/2009, Left: iPhone 3G, right iPhone 3GS with shadows, sweat and bloom. While many game developers are wondering how to deal with the iPhone 3GS graphics speed bump, Realtech has chosen to divide the (iPhone) world into two: OpenGL 1.x and OpenGL 2.0. In Iron Fist Boxing 3, iPhone 3GS users will benefit from better graphics thanks to bump-mapping and normal-mapping, two rendering techniques that even the PSP does not support. […]
10/15/2009, Sony made it official that the 250GB version of the PS3 slim will be in retail on November 3. Besides the extra capacity, there’s nothing different.
10/15/2009, Red Alert reminds me of these days where we would stay up late at work trying to wrap up some obscure game title that nobody has heard of – and play C&C Red Alert of course. Back then it was already extreme to see people like Eliane playing C&C with a Wacom tablet and stylus, but I guess that in this day and age of “touch”, playing without a mouse […]
10/15/2009, This MP5 replica features the full wiimote+nunchuck and motion+ functionalities. It charges via USB and has a built-in speaker to add a bit of realism. This particular version is tailored for the US market and the manufacturer took the precaution to add an orange tip so that your neighbors don’t freak out (too much) as you gun down some virtual place.
10/15/2009, Honda’s Bicycle Simulator will go on sale from February 2010 onwards, where it was specially manufactured in order to help out in the niche market of traffic safety education. This allows future bicycle riders to experience real world road conditions without running the risk of being part of the statistics themselves. Apart from that, a rider evaluation session will follow the riding simulation so that users can learn traffic rules […]
10/15/2009, Logitech’s latest Gaming Keyboard G110 will succeed the G11, where it will come with customizable backlighting so that you have a choice of rocking it out in either blue or red colors at night, or even mixing both colors together if that is your cup of tea. Apart from that, you also get a dozen programmable G-keys and three M-keys, allowing you to assign up to 36 single keystrokes, multi-key […]
