iPhone's App Store 'Try Before You Buy' section isn't exactly what you're hoping for

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2542 days, 1 hour, 4 minutes ago
Friday, August 06, 2010 9:43:50 AM GMT
We love Android's 24-hour app return policy, so when we heard about Apple opening a "Try Before You Buy" section in the App Store, we grabbed the closest iDevice in our proximity to see what exactly was up. Only, it isn't exactly what we expected given the name. Located under Features -> Free on the App Store, the new section serves only to highlight the free / "lite" edition of apps with premium older siblings. A smart and organized section, sure, but the for-pay programs without a demo will still be a ... (more)

Google's Schmidt boasts 200K Android devices sold daily, waxes intellectual on society and technology

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2542 days, 1 hour, 4 minutes ago
Friday, August 06, 2010 9:43:01 AM GMT
Google CEO Eric Schmidt is quite the quotable man -- we hear he's pretty chatty at coffee shops, too -- and at the Techonomy conference, he hasn't failed to disappoint. First, some cold hard data: according to Schmidt, about 200,000 new Android devices are being sold each day, which he claims is up from 100,000 daily sales about two months ago (and up from the 60,000 daily activations from April).

Microsoft's Kinect patent application goes public, reveals gobs of fine print

Friday, August 06, 2010 9:42:11 AM GMT
Not like it matters much now -- after all, Project Natal has had time to incubate and come out as Kinect -- but those wondering about the inner workings of the motion sensing system now have more one outlet to investigate. (more)

Phantasy Star Universe is up on Games on Demand

I guess Major Nelson hates Phantasy Star (probably a Final Fantasy fanboy) because he didn't say anything about Phantasy Star Universe being on Games on Demand. (more)

Fashionably late: Modern Warfare 2 now has a demo

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2543 days, 1 hour, 11 minutes ago
Thursday, August 05, 2010 9:36:47 AM GMT
Better late than never? As of this week, Modern Warfare 2 now has a single-player demo. It went live yesterday on PlayStation Network and hit Xbox LIVE earlier today (download link). You can probably understand why Infinity Ward didn't do this prior to the game's launch last November. Modern Warfare 2 is something of a known quantity at this point, and putting together a demo would've been time away from active development. (more)

Check out the multiplayer experience of DJ Hero 2

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2543 days, 1 hour, 11 minutes ago
Thursday, August 05, 2010 9:35:55 AM GMT
Multiplayer is going to be a big addition to DJ Hero 2. After all, the game is coming in a SKU with two turntables, and FreeStyleGames and Activision really want to make this a proper party game. I mentioned them a bit in my preview, but I suspect the creative director of FreeStyleGames, Jamie Jackson, could explain it better. Check it out! (more)

Gods vs. Humans for WiiWare features much smiting

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2543 days, 1 hour, 17 minutes ago
Thursday, August 05, 2010 9:30:20 AM GMT
Oh hell, who am I kidding? I don't even have the power to make myself look as appealing as this WiiWare game from Zallag. Gods vs. Humans pits you against persistent humans who want to ascend to your lofty throne in the clouds. And, while it seems like you'll have a number of ways in which to beat down the uppity bastards, making them all speak different languages appears to not be one of them. Damn, I hear that works pretty well too. (more)

Thursday, August 05, 2010 9:27:51 AM GMT
Lionhead boss and Microsoft Game Studios Europe director Peter Molyneux has revealed on the Engadget Show that Fable 3 will not ship with any Kinect functionality, despite past confirmations to the contrary. Joystiq spoke with Molyneux following his appearance on the show and learned that some form of Kinect content may be available post-launch, and that whatever was initially planned to be built into the game just wasn't up to snuff.

What you may not know about Sam, resident evil-alien-thing-killer and titular hero of the Serious Sam series, is that he's a serious guy. No, we don't mean he can't take a joke -- he's serious about savings, whether it be a coupon on a can of Campbell's Chunky or the fate of the whole world, he's all about the savings. And now GOG is saving you from a meaningless existence by offering the original Serious Sam: The First Encounter for $10. (more)

If you've already got a headset, mouse or keyboard, here's hoping they suit you just fine, because if they don't you'll be tempted to blow oodles of money on Logitech's latest gaming peripheral lineup. Today, the company revealed (and is launching) the G510 keyboard, the G930 headset and G700 mouse, and while the first is merely an amalgamation of solid peripherals that have come before (customizable RGB backlighting, USB audio, 18 programmable buttons, the whole nine yards) the latter two are premium wi...
