posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2685 days, 10 hours, 11 minutes ago
Saturday, April 17, 2010 6:55:04 PM GMT
We'd like to welcome the hard of hearing to the internet delivered video party, now that Netflix has begun offering optional closed captioning on a limited number of Watch Instantly titles.

Dell's 7-inch and 10-inch Streak tablets leaked!

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2685 days, 10 hours, 12 minutes ago
Saturday, April 17, 2010 6:53:32 PM GMT
We'd heard through the grapevine that the engineers at Round Rock were working on a number of slates to fill the Streak lineup, but man, we didn't see this coming... at least not yet. A couple of images along with an internal Dell announcement landed on our virtual doorstep this fine morning, and lo and behold, it looks as if a 7-inch and 10-inch Streak tablet is on the horizon. But that's not all -- we learned that the "coming soon" we heard earlier regarding the Aero's release date on AT&T really m... (more)

Gamertell Review: Apple’s iPad as a game system

posted by adminadmin 2686 days, 10 hours, 16 minutes ago
Friday, April 16, 2010 6:49:32 PM GMT
There’s no doubt that the iPhone became a surprise cannonball in the gaming industry. What started as a mobile device meant to be reliant on web applications, became a mobile powerhouse that forced Sony and Nintendo to acknowledge it - even if those acknowledgments came in the form of “bite sized” dismissals - and spawned great games such as Aurora Feint, Fieldrunners and Rolando, plus convinced more popular companies to bring over properties including Final Fantasy, Doom II and Need for Speed. Now, Ap... (more)

What's With All the Android Phones? Here's How to Pick Just One

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2686 days, 20 hours, 41 minutes ago
Friday, April 16, 2010 8:25:10 AM GMT
It's a near-weekly occurrence: HTC, or Motorola, or someone releases a brand-new Android phone. There are a ton of them! But really, there are only a few worth buying. Here are the best Android phones on each carrier. Choosing an Android phone is just like choosing any other cellphone, except easier: You're already onboard with the Android operating system, you're prepared to shell out for a data plan, and probably have a more specific idea of what you want in a phone than your average buyer.

If you think about it, what's shocking isn't the size of Microsoft or Apple, companies that are decades old, established titans of industry (even if they have stumbled in the past)—it's Google. In just over 10 years, Google's become arguably the most important company on the web, spreading to anything the internet touches with astonishing speed, almost like a virus: From the web and search to books, video, mobile phones, operating systems, and soon, your TV.

If you thought that a woman supposedly contracting persistent sexual arousal syndrome due to a Wii Fit injury would be the strangest controversy the game would ever be involved in, well, you're right. But here's another new controversy: Gamasutra reports that interactive exercise company IA Labs is suing Nintendo for allegedly infringing on two of their patents with Wii Fit -- and a number of other Wii products.

Let's go back a couple of years, to E3 2008. At the Microsoft Press Conference, the company drops the news that Square Enix has agreed to release Final Fantasy XIII simultaneously on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There is much cheering and/or weeping and gnashing of teeth, depending on which side of the console wars you are on. (more)

Have you ever wondered what Project Natal actually sees through its beady, robotic eyes? A direct feed of the Natal's point-of-view was recently revealed to the audience of Microsoft Israel R&D's "Think Next" convention yesterday afternoon. Just past the jump, you can check out NextGen-News' video of a live demonstration from Microsoft VP of Hardware and Technology Dr. Ilan Spillinger and a female participant, both of whose genders and movements were successfully identified and Avatar-ified by Natal.

Assassin's Creed 2 enters Guinness World Records 2010

Friday, April 16, 2010 8:11:17 AM GMT
Yes, Assassin's Creed 2 has been awarded with a Guinness World Record. You might be surprised, however, to learn that it has nothing to do with how good the game is. No, Assassin's Creed 2 has been awarded the world record for "being the most cover-featured video game." In other words, it appeared on more magazine covers between April 2009 and April 2010 than any other game. (more)

LGJ: Does PS3 Firmware 3.21 come with a refund?

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2686 days, 20 hours, 56 minutes ago
Friday, April 16, 2010 8:09:28 AM GMT
By now you've installed the PS3 Firmware 3.21 update that removes the "Other OS" option (more or less) from your console. (You've at least read about it.) Besides angering the PS3 users who had been enjoying the Other OS feature, this incident has had some unintended consequences in the realm of consumer protection and warranty laws, both in the US and abroad. It's certainly a bit of an unusual situation, but hopefully this column will provide you a bit of an explanation on a global scale, and answer the... (more)
