PlayStation Move Will Turn You Into a Mii Killer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2444 days, 2 hours, 20 minutes ago
Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:53:44 PM GMT
We're just a couple of days away from PlayStation Move launch day (that's this Sunday if you've been snoozing and forgot to mark your calendars), and just in the nick of time, comes this weird and whacky advertisement for Sony's new motion sensing peripheral. (more)

iPad has halved laptop sales, claims Best Buy CEO (update: he meant netbooks)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2444 days, 2 hours, 22 minutes ago
Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:52:21 PM GMT
Well, the iPad is about one half of a laptop -- both in its form and functionality -- so it makes perfect sense that it'd chop laptop sales by 50 percent. We might be pulling your leg, but Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn isn't. The dude in charge of the yellow label empire has told the Wall Street Journal that his company's internal estimates indicate the iPad has eaten up as much as half of laptop PC market demand. In response to this perceived trend toward more portable gadgets, Brian's outfit is rearranging... (more)

Skyhook: Google forced Motorola to drop our location service, delay the Droid X

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2444 days, 2 hours, 23 minutes ago
Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:51:18 PM GMT
We figured Skyhook's business interference and patent infringement lawsuits against Google would turn up some dirt, and we didn't have long to wait: the location-services company's complaint flatly alleges that Google's Andy Rubin ordered Motorola's Sanjay Jha to "stop ship" on the Droid X because it used Skyhook's XPS positioning system instead of Google Location Services, a tiff that ultimately delayed the phone's release while Moto reworked the software and dropped Skyhook entirely. Following that, ... (more)

Switched On: Getting real about a phone that's not (part 1)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2444 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes ago
Saturday, September 18, 2010 11:49:59 PM GMT
In the short history of smartphones, handsets carrying all but one of the major operating systems have been available to multiple U.S. carriers. That exception is iOS, for which the iPhone has been the only model. Of course, the iPhone's close cousin, the iPod touch, is available regardless of carrier (or service fees, for that matter), and has sometimes been referred to as "the iPhone for Verizon users." Ultimately, though, it's not. While the iPod touch provides access to a dizzying array of functional... (more)

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 2's story mode looks RPG-ish

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2448 days, 22 hours, 33 minutes ago
Tuesday, September 14, 2010 3:41:19 AM GMT
If you didn't know it yet, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, has a single-player story mode. Three, in fact, from the perspective of different characters. What Namco Bandai haven't shown us is exactly how they intend to tell this grand ol' tale of super-powered ninjas. Until now, that is, and it seems to be a bit different from the last game. (more)

PAX 10: Force Unleashed 2 now with 33% less leash

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 3:22:46 AM GMT
Poor Starkiller -- he’s got serious issues. First, he’s dead. Second, he’s now a clone. Third, he’s the latest in a long line of clones who have gone insane as the memories of the original Starkiller began to flood their consciousness. Oh yeah, there’s also that whole fealty to Darth Vader thing to cope with as well. I like to call him the Forcerer’s Apprentice. (more)

And Yet It Moves

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2448 days, 23 hours, 4 minutes ago
Tuesday, September 14, 2010 3:09:44 AM GMT
If you're into indie games, then you already know of And Yet It Moves. It's been all over the indie scene winning awards and winning people over with its world rotating platform gameplay. However, just a few weeks ago it landed on WiiWare with new motion controls built in, and theoretically that should make the game even better since rotating the game's worlds should be even easier when all you have to do is twist your wrist.

More pew pew pew videos from Halo: Reach

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2448 days, 23 hours, 24 minutes ago
Tuesday, September 14, 2010 2:50:12 AM GMT
I think the DMR is my new favorite weapon in Halo: Reach. It's a perfect blend of the Battle Rifle from Halo 3 and the sniper rifle. Oh, and yes, I wrecked the other team in this game of SWAT. I seriously think the other press folks were glad when I finally left the review event as I winning throughout the entire day. Good times! (more)

Sony launches anti-Kinect attack website, yaybuttons.com

Monday, September 13, 2010 7:32:26 AM GMT
Sony's typically the equal-opportunity offender, poking fun at everything from Wii to iPhone, but the company's latest marketing campaign is unmistakably aimed at Microsoft's motion-sensing peripheral. Head on over to www.yaybuttons.com to interact with a two-dimensional PlayStation Move, which will pop out a series of quotes from Kevin Butler -- Sony's fictional VP of Realistic Movements -- explaining Sony's tactile advantages over Microsoft's Kinect.

One of our readers picked up a Move at a Best Buy in Benton Harbor, Michigan today, and we'd expect the trickle to turn into a flood by the time the "official" launch finally arrives.

Entelligence: Will carriers destroy the Android vision?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2449 days, 18 hours, 45 minutes ago
Monday, September 13, 2010 7:29:02 AM GMT
It's an unfortunately familiar phenomena -- PC vendors suffering from razor thin margins load their devices with more stickers than a stock car and install gigabytes of useless applications that serve only to take up space and use system resources. Sony was perhaps the most egregious in 2008, offering to remove the offending bloatware for a $50 fee. It's was if Tony Soprano went into tech -- "Pay us and we won't mess up your computer." (more)

It's been a week since Apple announced the new iPods, and that means they're currently making their way to retailer shelves. However, you can't purchase your new iPod without knowing everything about it, right? You have to know what makes it tick and how many parts it has. How could you ever commit to a purchase without knowing these things? Well fear not, because the folks at iFixit know what you need and are on hand to help. (more)

Here's the thing: we refuse to watch this video. Sorry, guys, but Halo: Reach is a little less than a week away and we want to go into it fresh. Still, not everyone has the same desire to remain pure, so for those of you chomping at the bit for more Reach stuff, head on past the break for a video walkthrough of "Tip of the Spear." If you need us, we'll have our fingers firmly planted in our ears, shouting "la-la-la-la-la-la-we-can't-hear-you!" (more)

PAX Prime 2010 had over 67k attendees; international show teased

67,600. That's the number of nerds and gaming fans that rushed Seattle's PAX Prime show this year. It's easily the largest gaming event in the US open to the public, and it shows no sign of losing momentum. This year's show made headlines, too, with the surprise reveal of a fully playable Duke Nukem Forever. (more)

Torchlight 2 will offer free mod tools, full mod support in multiplayer

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2453 days, 19 hours, 14 minutes ago
Thursday, September 09, 2010 6:59:44 AM GMT
A lot of people have been making a big deal out of multiplayer in Torchlight 2 -- and rightfully so -- but not so much talk has been about modding. The first game had a substantial mod community, thanks in part to Runic Games offering mod tools for free to all players. And during my demo of the game at PAX, a Runic rep confirmed that the company will once again freely distribute mod tools to the public. (more)
