Windows 8 to Get Time Machine-like History Vault

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2300 days, 3 hours, 20 minutes ago
Monday, April 04, 2011 7:26:10 AM GMT
Keeping a backup of your data is a hugely important rule to almost all sorts of computing. While cloud computing through something like Chrome OS helps take care of that for casual applications, until everything is cloud-based users will need to take care of things for themselves. (more)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2300 days, 3 hours, 21 minutes ago
Monday, April 04, 2011 7:24:35 AM GMT
Dungeon Defenders: First Wave cost $3 when it first came out. This week, the iOS version will cost you ninety-nine cents. But if you want to play the Unreal Engine-powered tower defense game today, you can have it for free -- developer Trendy Entertainment is now leaning on Android's new in-app billing system to pay for the whole thing.

Xperia X10 goes on sale for just a dollar on contract, Gingerbread-flavored future makes it appealing

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2300 days, 3 hours, 23 minutes ago
Monday, April 04, 2011 7:23:17 AM GMT
Okay, so a couple of weeks back, we wouldn't have cared if Best Buy was willing to give us money to carry the Xperia X10, we still would have steered clear of its flawed UI and outdated software. But Sony Ericsson did a funny thing last Friday by promising to slap Gingerbread on this 4-inch sucker, which makes its current $1 contract price an eminently more intriguing proposition. (more)

Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro successor spotted as SK17i, sports Gingerbread

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2300 days, 3 hours, 24 minutes ago
Monday, April 04, 2011 7:21:27 AM GMT
Looking for your fibrous dose of gadget leak? Look no further than China which has, again and again, outed several spy shots of what appears to be the Xperia X10 Mini Pro's successor. Dubbed the SK17i and codenamed "Mango," this time we're looking at some proof of Android 2.3 on this little Sony Ericsson slider, along with a homescreen UI not dissimilar to that of the X10 Mini and X8 series.

Japan 3ds and psp tied up in sales charts

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2302 days, 11 hours, 28 minutes ago
Friday, April 01, 2011 11:17:47 PM GMT
The 3DS sales for the week ending March 27 were 50,710, and PSP sales were 50,479. I guess if you want to add in PSP go to the PSP sales, then Sony actually manages to beat the 3DS out with 51,079. Still, it's barely winning by a nose no matter how you look at it. (more)

Bloodrayne 2d side scroller coming to psn xbla

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2302 days, 13 hours, 25 minutes ago
Friday, April 01, 2011 9:20:40 PM GMT
Majesco has announced today that it's bringing BloodRayne back from the grave for a 2D side-scroller game this year. Called BloodRayne: Betrayal, the title sees Rayne being recruited by the Brimstone Society. While not confirmed, co-op is being hinted at by Majesco -- they say she'll team up with a mystery partner to stop "an evil vampire massacre." Typical. (more)

3DS Power Pak + review: a battery of tests

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2302 days, 14 hours, 6 minutes ago
Friday, April 01, 2011 8:39:42 PM GMT
Nyko was first out of the gate with a product designed to ameliorate the 3DS's infamous battery life issue. The Power Pak + is a replacement battery that Nyko claims will double the runtime of the 3D handheld. Nyko sent Joystiq one of the packs, along with the optional Charge Base cradle (the Power Pak + uses the normal AC adapter, but is incompatible with the dock that ships with the 3DS) and I decided to put that claim to the test, and evaluate the device in a non-battery-life capacity as well.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 'Reverie' DLC released 'in error' on PSN

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2302 days, 14 hours, 7 minutes ago
Friday, April 01, 2011 8:39:03 PM GMT
David Cox, producer on Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, has been all over Twitter recently, responding to complaints about the DLC delay. When he was asked by one disgruntled European gamer wondering why the Xbox 360 delay was holding up the Reverie DLC on PS3 in his region, Cox revealed that the initial DLC launch on PSN was "put up there in error." In other words, Reverie wasn't meant to be released on PS3 in North America (whoops!). (more)

Magicka: Vietnam is seriously coming out April 12

Friday, April 01, 2011 8:38:28 PM GMT
Okay, we're starting to believe that Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Game Studios' upcoming expansion to their successful, arcane action-RPG, Magicka: Vietnam, is not the most elaborate hoax ever pulled on the gaming industry. See, we were operating under that assumption, but earlier today the creators revealed 10 screenshots for the add-on, and gave it some formal release details: It's coming to "all major digital distribution channels" April 12 (more)

Revolution doesn't come free, as any, uh, revolter (revolutioneer?) will tell you. On May 17, Fable 3 will launch on the Windows and bring with it a tale of two royal siblings vying for the crown -- but will you be able to cast off the shackles of oppression and fight for freedom? Probably not. I mean, have you ever tried to throw a shackle? They're heavy! (more)

Xbox 360 Gets Upgraded DVD Spec for 1GB More

Friday, April 01, 2011 8:32:34 PM GMT
When looking on paper, one of the big advantages of the PlayStation 3 over the Xbox 360 is the Blu-ray drive. Not only can it play Blu-ray movies, but it can hold much more data than the plain DVD-9 – except that the Xbox 360's disc capacity isn't even at the same level as a DVD-9. (more)
