Tuesday, January 10, 2012 10:07:01 AM GMT
GameStop reported sales for the nine weeks ending December 31, 2011. In that period, it achieved sales of $3.02 billion, which, on the surface, is a repeat of last year's number. Moving down the decimal point, the company reported $3,018.1 million in 2010 (itself a record) and $3,019.1 in 2011 -- a new record by a million dollars. (more)

Mad Catz ships the Primer wireless headset for Xbox

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2140 days, 12 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 10:06:25 AM GMT
Mad Catz has announced that it has shipped the Primer wireless headset. Sold under the Tritton brand, the stereo headset is notable in that it is the first officially licensed wireless headset for the Xbox 360. Nearly identical in appearance to Tritton's Detonator headset -- minus the cables, plus a "base station" -- the Primer utilizes 5.8GHz wireless tech, which purportedly cuts down on interference from appliances, phones and the like.

GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac and Remote Control Kit hands-on (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2140 days, 24 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 9:54:55 AM GMT
We're certainly not going to say no to more functionality for GoPro's rugged camera units. Here at CES's Digital Experience, we've got to get a glimpse at both the WiFi BacPac and Remote Control Kit. The WiFi Bacpac does what you'd expect it to do -- but with an extra twist. Alongside WiFi connectivity, it'll also play nice with both Android and iOS devices. The apps will display any captured content immediately, with a free-to-download app that will connect with the camera. (more)

EXOdesk hands-on

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2140 days, 24 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 9:54:24 AM GMT
You've seen it shown off in poorly lit YouTube clips, now see in a poorly lit hands-on video from our favorite tech blog. The fine folks at ExoPC invited us up to their suite at the Trump hotel (which, by the way, smells exactly like you'd imagine Donald Trump does) to spend some quality time with their desktop extension. The core of the system is a 37-inch 10-point multitouch screen connected to a reasonably powerful laptop. But it's the software that's the real star. The tabletop computer is running th... (more)

Karotz hits the US, has a lot of catching up to do on Twitter, Facebook

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2140 days, 25 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 9:53:42 AM GMT
After a rather graphic trip to the FCC, we suspected that Nabaztag's more pronounceable, if largely aesthetically identical successor Karotz was slated for arrival here in the US any day now. The time has finally come. The WiFi-enabled lagomorph is now available on our shores, bringing with it boatload of friendly connectivity, including Facebook and Twitter integration and the ability to send messages, audio files and pokes directly to the rabbit. And if you really want to get your friends' attention fr... (more)

Sensics head-tracking 3D Smart goggles hands-on (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2140 days, 25 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 9:53:06 AM GMT
When we first caught wind of Sensic's head-tracking 3D Smart goggles a few days ago, we couldn't help but think of it as a Sony HMZ-T1 on Android-flavored steroids. We've just spent some time with the prototype here on the show floor playing a virtual demo that had us smashing buildings in a virtual world -- notably running entirely on the headset, thanks (in part) to its 1.2GHZ dual-core CPU. If you can't tell from the picture, the headset is absolutely massive. In-hand it's quiet hefty, but once it eng... (more)

Microsoft moves 18 million Kinect sensors, leaves behind a lot of lonely couch cushions

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2140 days, 26 minutes ago
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 9:52:30 AM GMT
Here's a fun little tidbit from tonight's Seacrest-heavy Microsoft Keynote: turns out that Redmond has moved 18 million Kinect sensors in just over a year, according to the Steve Ballmer's numbers. The news came amidst a few announcements that should help the company push even more of the gesture-based peripherals out the door -- Kinect for Windows, anyone? Of course, this being the company's last CES keynote for the foreseeable future, it'll have to find another convention hall full of people to brag to... (more)

Japanese hardware sales, November 7 - 13: SOPA edition | Joystiq

We like to poke fun around here, but the Stop Online Piracy Act is actually pretty serious business. As creative people ourselves, we're all for protecting intellectual property rights and for ensuring that those who make things for a living are able to live off what they make. What we're not okay with is the asinine notion that removing everything associated with ocean-based mercenaries from the Internet will somehow stop people from stealing software and movies. It makes zero sense. (more)

Remember how EA originally planned to include a free copy of Battlefield 1943 with every new PS3 copy of Battlefield 3? So do a lot of other people, and they're so upset over EA's replacement "bonus" that they've filed a class-action lawsuit against the publisher, according to Kotaku. (more)

The video-game industry is trying to find the balance between casual and hardcore gaming, with freemium, social-networking titles leading the casual sphere. A new development company established by former Activision employees Dusty Welch and Chris Archer, U4ia, plans to bridge the gap and make freemium a staple of hardcore titles, as well. Its first target -- the FPS. (more)
