    Matt had a blast playing this; I wish I’d given it a go before we left Sony’s little press island. Think Wii Sports Resort but with the precision and responsiveness that are lacking from the Wii even with MotionPlus. Read More

  • CrunchFail: Doug and Greg crash and burn at Rock Band challenge

  • CES 2009 Prep: The Things We'll Carry

    CES can be a lot of fun, but it’s a whole friggin’ lot of work, too. Meetings, press announcements, booth tours, darting back and forth from hall to hall, show floor to hotel, and a whole lot of trekking around the show floor in search of diamonds in the rough. Media attendees probably walk more in the four days of CES than most people walk in a month – all while wearing… Read More

  • It's on! Pandora open source handheld available for pre-order


    I love these little open handhelds. The GP2X has been the standard for a while, but the Pandora looks to be the new king of the hill. You can order one now for $329, and various accessories as well (not in America? click here). There are only 3000 available in the first batch, and no more will be ready until ’09, so be quick about it and get yourself an early Christmas present. Read More
