  • Review: Nyko Intercooler STS For XBox 360

    As a fairly regular player of XBox 360 media (called “video games” by those in the know) I have found that the console often becomes hot enough to melt a DVD placed on top of it resulting in, say, a copy of Mario Kart Wii (another “video game” for a game console called the Wii) that is rendered unusable by said heat. This causes, in turn, our toddlers to melt-down and… Read More

  • Interview With Sony's Head Of R&D, Dr. Richard Marks

    Gamasutra had a good interview with Sony’s head of R&D, Dr. Richard Marks — it’s well worth the read. They talk about how he got his start in high school at a game shop his pop owned playing loads of old school games. He then moved on to study aerospace engineering in college where he found his love for robotics. Something he says is very similar to video gaming. Read More

  • A New Xbox/Mad Catz Branded Wireless Headset On The Way?

    If you’ve ever wanted a different Xbox wireless headset other than the offering from Microsoft, you’ve been out of luck. You see, Microsoft uses proprietary wireless to connect to their headsets, which means no one else is getting a piece of that pie. While that’s nice and all for Microsoft, it hasn’t really offered much for people wanting something more. That… Read More

  • Kinect Hack Used To Make Colorful Music Video

    The band Echo Lake plays music that sounds like dreamy indie rock with their combination of up-tempo, feel good and aural noise. Their latest music video isn’t too far off from that same descriptor. But, you’d be surprised to learn that this video wasn’t shot with normal video cameras. Nope, it was shot with an XBox Kinect. Sort of a modern day Money for Nothing. Read More

    Goldman Sachs, the giant organization that practically runs Planet Earth, wants Microsoft to spin off its Xbox division. In fact, it wants it so bad that it has downgraded M$ (get it, lol!) stock from “buy” to “neutral” in an attempt to encourage the move. So what’s going on here? Read More
