This is how GameStop will tackle digital distribution

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2615 days, 12 hours, 53 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:12:03 AM GMT
With an increasingly strong push toward download-only games and digital expansion packs, you have to wonder what's going to happen to retailers like GameStop. Used game sales can only carry you so far into the future, right? VentureBeat has a neat article detailing the company's model "store of the future." Essentially, GameStop wants to bring digital distribution into the storefront. Yeah, I know. There will be interactive kiosks that can scan in your personal rewards card to bring up information such ... (more)

Game budgets have peaked, says EA

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2615 days, 12 hours, 54 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 6:11:02 AM GMT
EA Partners' boss David DeMartini, speaking with GamesIndustry.biz at gamescom, expressed his belief that "budgets for games have actually peaked and are starting to move in the reverse direction again." "I don’t think there’s any one right budget for any game," he explained. "It kind of depends on how big the idea is and what the team needs to be able to make a 90 percent-rated game with the idea that they’re working on. You just need to make sure that you pick a path that’s going to get you there." (more)

School May Use RFID Chips to Track Students

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2615 days, 13 hours, 6 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 5:59:04 AM GMT
Your school probably had some kind of system in place to keep track of students leaving class to go to the bathroom, or go on an errands for staff. Whether it was hall monitors, head boys and girls, or prefects, it's likely that your system involved human trackers. However, if the school board in Canaan, Connecticut, give a Westport security company the go ahead, hall passes could be a thing of the past. Instead, schools in the area would use RFID chips embedded in ID cards to keep track of students duri... (more)

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 5:57:55 AM GMT
Major League Gaming has placed a ban on Razer's Onzo controller for Xbox, prohibiting players from using the controller in MLG games and tournaments. However, the news was met with mixed reactions from the MLG community, and many are accusing MLG of banning it simply to appease sponsor and Razer-rival Mad Cats. (more)

Exclusive: HTC's Windows Phone 7-equipped T8788 breaks cover for AT&T

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2615 days, 13 hours, 11 minutes ago
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 5:54:34 AM GMT
In case you needed any more evidence that AT&T is going all-in with Windows Phone 7, take a gander at this little beast, a phone known only as the HTC T8788 at this point (rest assured, you'll get a snappy, memorable, trademarkable name by the time it's on shelves). Though it's a landscape slider, it doesn't slide to reveal what you'd normally expect -- a keyboard, that is. Instead, you get a speaker, an unusual (though not unprecedented) concept that should make this a decent media device... and the... (more)

GC 10: Kinect Dashboard hands-on and XBL expansion

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2620 days, 10 hours, 59 minutes ago
Friday, August 20, 2010 8:06:08 AM GMT
We had a look at a rough version of the Kinect Dashboard today. Actually, they started the session by announcing that Xbox Live would be available in 9 new markets: Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Chile, Colombia, South Africa and Greece. So if you live in any of those countries, yay for you. I asked if they were planning to expand into China, but only got the standard PR talk as a result. So, no China or funny comments. Boo for us.

On a wind swept plain stand a brother and a sister. Swords drawn ready to fight off the creatures that are heading towards them waving swords of their own. A swift blow from the brothers axe takes out one and fireball from the sister, a powerful mage, reduces another to pile of red goo. More waves of enemies arrive, the brother makes a gallant vow to keep on fighting until they are defeated. Soon, a giant troll charges into the fray and the duo battle the beast until it is defeated by a devastating spell... (more)

Fallout: New Vegas has a definitive end

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2620 days, 11 hours, 2 minutes ago
Friday, August 20, 2010 8:02:40 AM GMT
The main story quest of Fallout 3 (spoiler alert!) ended the game, but the "Broken Steel" add-on changed the ending to let you go back into the Capital Wasteland. That seems unlikely to happen with Fallout: New Vegas because of the way the game ends (and what the ending tells you). At a New Vegas demo last month, senior producer Jason Bergman told me that the ending to New Vegas "explains things well beyond the end of [the] game," including "what happens to every one of our factions and major characters."

Dell's Q2 2010 sees 16 percent increase in net income, flat revenue from Consumer unit

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2620 days, 11 hours, 8 minutes ago
Friday, August 20, 2010 7:57:24 AM GMT
First with HP, and now with Dell. The PC maker (and occasional phone dabbler) posted its second quarter fiscal 2010 report, which actually gives a good perspective on the relative position of each company in the global PC market. Whereas the House that Hurd once ran reported a $30.7 billion revenue and $2.3 billion operating profit, Dell posted $15.5 billion (up 22 percent) in revenue and $745 million operating income. (more)

Nokia's QWERTY-slidin' N9 shows up in the wilds of China (update: running MeeGo!)

Remember this scandalous little leak from back in June? It looks to have been validated today, as imagery of Nokia's MeeGo (or is it Symbian4?)-powered N9 QWERTY slider has emerged over in China. As usual with these things, we can't be certain that this device is in fact part of Nokia's roadmap and not just another creative hardware emulation, but it sure seems to have our old buddy Eldar Murtazin convinced.
