10/26/2009, Love getting a gaming fix wherever you go? The Yinlips YDP800 might be just your cup of tea if you’re a sucker for retro titles as this multimedia playback device also boasts compatibility with a vast array of games from the NES, GBA, GB, GBC and SMC SFC platforms. While that sounds pretty ordinary, the YDP800 has another nice trick up its sleeve – a 12 lumen video projector that […]
10/25/2009, Word has it that the Nintendo DSi might be getting a voice chat channel in the near future, and while the company has denied that rumor, we can’t help but hope positively that it is true. After all, Nintendo did try to push the Wii Speak feature for some time now, although chatting through the Wii might be weirder than the DSi which is a much more natural device and […]
10/25/2009, The Sony PS3 gets another feather in its cap with Netflix announcing that they will offer instant streaming of thousands of movies into your living room via the PS3 for free (Netflix members only with a $8.99 monthly account) without any additional cost. Too bad this offer applies only to those living in the US and own a PS3. You will use the PS3 system’s Wireless Controller to select the […]
10/23/2009, Sorry for the false alarm folks – it doesn’t look as though Microsoft will be rolling out the Xbox 360 with a Blu-ray drive add-on anytime soon, as the interview with Steve Ballmer was misinterpreted since Steve actually referred to Blu-Ray accessories for the PC. Well, that’s that then – if you want a Blu-ray player, you can always pick up a (gasp!) Sony PS3.
10/23/2009, Polk Audio is an old hand when it comes to audio equipment, and this time round they have introduced the HitMaster gaming speaker that will cater for those who go home and enjoy Rock Band and Guitar Hero on a daily basis, offering an entirely new level of depth and detail. The HitMaster will boast a single-point stereo design that will comprise of a couple of horns, a similar number […]
10/22/2009, This is rather unthinkable – somewhat akin to the SNES playing Genesis games, where the Xbox 360 might actually come with an external Blu-ray drive accessory in the near future according to Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer. According to Ballmer, “Well I don’t know if we need to put Blu-ray in there — you’ll be able to get Blu-ray drives as accessories.” What do you think of this idea? Would it […]
10/21/2009, Do you happen to do more gaming on your computer compared to the other home consoles in your living room? If that’s the case and most of your games do better with a joypad compared to a keyboard and a mouse, perhaps this Fire Dragon USB controller might be just the thing for you as it comes with an Xbox 360-like controller configuration, complete with a long tail and wings […]
10/21/2009, Love all forms of computer gaming? Chances are you would have spent at least a few nights throughout your gaming lifetime without sleeping as there is just “one more level” to complete, or you want to level up by another number in order to attain the next character ability. Having said that, to sit on a proper gaming chair will definitely pay off dividends, and the Frag gaming chair is […]
10/21/2009, The idea is: buy a Bravia TV, get a free PS3 or something like that (Australian market). Depending on your console preference, smile or cry.
10/21/2009, Love all things associated with retro gaming? Surely you will then remember the classic marketing battles between Sega and Nintendo when the Genesis and SNES were in their element. The SNEGA2USB device allows you to plug in your Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo cartridges, mounting them as a standard USB 2.0 storage device without the need for additional drivers. All game ROMs and SNES SRAM saved games will turn up […]
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 […]
