Windows Phone Overtaking iOS By 2015, Claims Report

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1951 days, 8 hours, 55 minutes ago
Sunday, January 22, 2012 10:00:15 AM GMT
Market researchers at IHS report that Windows Phone will overtake Apple's iOs by 2015 by a slight margin, falling into second place behind Google's Android platform. In 2011, Windows Phone only controlled 1.9-percent of the market, but by 2015, the firm predicts it will maintain a hearty 16.7-percent, just a half percent above Apple. Android will have claimed 58.1-percent of the market by then. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1953 days, 6 hours, 50 minutes ago
Friday, January 20, 2012 12:05:13 PM GMT
While we found a lot of things to like in the last Xbox 360 dashboard upgrade, not everyone was happy after it finally rolled out in early December. We've received word from multiple owners who saw and reported color output problems since the beta began, and today Director of Programming Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson tweeted that the company is "aware of the color space issue w/ some Xbox video apps & are working on a fix".

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1954 days, 9 hours, 14 minutes ago
Thursday, January 19, 2012 9:40:48 AM GMT
SoulCalibur 5's character roster has, historically, been chock-full of leaks. Clandestine screenshots were responsible for revealing Ezio and Raphael, and now it looks as though three new fighters may have been uncovered in an extremely similar fashion. (more)

Super Mario Bros. Crossover gets a makeover in Version 2.0

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1956 days, 9 hours, 22 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 17, 2012 9:32:50 AM GMT
The 2.0 update for Super Mario Bros. Crossover, coming in Q1 2012, gives the homemade blend-em-up a bit more flash and a wider spectrum of nostalgia. And the new SNES and Gameboy visuals don't detract from the game's real purpose, which is to destroy that aloof minion Lakitu in new and interesting ways. (more)

Tips for securing your Xbox Live account

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1958 days, 7 hours, 49 minutes ago
Sunday, January 15, 2012 11:06:38 AM GMT
Lately, we've been hearing stories of an increasingly alarming Xbox Live hacking issue, and the lack of care and concern that Microsoft has exhibited in some cases. Sure, just being hacked is beyond inconvenient, but users also risk losing access to their accounts for extended periods and the horrible possibility of having to speak with Xbox support. Yikes.

El Presidente will deal with modernity when Tropico 4: Modern Times hits Xbox 360 and PC this March. Propaganda claims the expansion will feature an "extensive" new single-player campaign.

Cave to put projects on hold, refocus on social gaming

Saturday, January 14, 2012 9:22:59 PM GMT
It's easy to forget sometimes that video games are a business, as well as a means of artistic expression and recreation. Even developers like Cave, whose sterling reputation is due almost entirely to its long-time devotion to the incredibly esoteric bullet-hell genre, have to make tough decisions in order to continue existing.

You'll be prompted to download the update upon booting up your game today. It also addresses ghost camera issues and allows players to prime a revive for a DBNO (down but not out) teammate by holding in the Y button before they approach. It's basically the same thing as holding in the X button before approaching a weapon pickup. (more)

Nokia: Microsoft Is NOT Buying Our Smartphone Division

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1961 days, 10 hours, 35 minutes ago
Thursday, January 12, 2012 8:20:26 AM GMT
In an interview with PC Magazine, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said that the rumor about Microsoft purchasing Nokia's smartphone division is completely bogus. He said the rumor likely surfaced because "some people" are running out of fresh material, and enjoy generating rumors. The "some people" reportedly refers to Nokia watcher Eldar Murtazin who surmised that Microsoft plans to purchase Nokia's smartphone division based on a report released by Danske Bank last week.

The most exciting item at first glance is the Power Grip for PS Vita, pictured above. It promises to triple battery life for Sony's upcoming handheld -- and considering what Nyko did for 3DS battery life, we're willing to look past the ugly appendages. Other Vita accessories include a speaker stand and an all-in-one case, charger and USB cable combo. (more)

Microsoft's Xbox 360 has had quite a year. According to a 2011 roundup video released by the company just ahead of its final CES keynote (prepare for Ballmer-age), the Xbox 360 now sits at a total of 66 million units sold worldwide.
