As Sony present PlayStation Vita at E3 2011, they also discussed about the internal memory card for the said console.

At the presentation of Sony’s PlayStation Vita E3 2011, Sony also showed the new removable internal memory card for the said console. It will be available in 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB as it was said in E3.

Unlike the memory stick, the said memory card appearance is very close to a variety of SD(Secure Digital) cards that has an ultra small flash memory card designed, it just have a little notch in its side confirming they hew to Sony’s unfortunate habit of using proprietary storage formats. But the cost of Vita’s memory card is still shrouded with mysteries.

Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel, More Manageable than CSR

Written on June 12, 2011 by Lulu

The Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel may not bring a motor sports fans' blood boiling. But it is more convenient to use than the Fanatec CSR Elite wheel.

The Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel, a U-shaped device that is more convenient to use and more affordable than the Fanatec CSR Elite, is a simple lightweight controller that has an over-sized button or trigger on its grips’ backside. This thing is likely to clap against the back, as you smash the throttle because it has a low resistance. This means that it is easy to be accurate on the gas or brake.

On its right prong are the four fac buttons, on the other side is the D-pad. While the Start and Back are placed in the middle of the device with the Guide button. The L and R shoulder buttons didn’t make it and that is the sad part.

That makes GADG think what it would be for those gamers who uses it for manual shifting. The triggers feel great and as you shift using the D-pad, you might find it clumsy but it works. The Speed Wheel might not bring the most spine chilling racing experiences, but it is more user friendly than your average wheel and pedal setup when it launches this October.

Wii's successor is no longer Project Cafe. It's now Wii U!

During the E3 2011 conference, Nintendo revealed that Project Cafe has been renamed as Wii U. The Wii successor is a white console with a six-inch touchscreen, two thumbsticks, camera, motion sensor, face buttons and base unit. Wii U features a roaming mode, wherein games are displayed on the touchscreen; and a fixed mode, where the controller outputs to a TV. In addition to this, Nintendo promises zero latency for this link.

Moreover, both screens can be used at once, although the touchscreen does not output in HD. However, HD is available when the controller is connected to a HD TV. As Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata said in E3 2011:

“As an industry, what we haven’t achieved yet is a game platform that is equally satisfying for all players,’ said Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata. ‘Yet, this is exactly what we intend to create with our new home platform.”

Written on April 24, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

The console wars begin anew as Nintendo Wii will most likely heat up the competition with their next generation home console.

With less than two months away until the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 2011 kicks in to rock the video game industry, many people are already wondering what’s going to happen and what surprises are in store for our Xbox360s, PS3s, Nintendo 3DS, etc.

E3 has always been a mini-barometer on how gamers react to a gaming company’s platter. If one line is way longer than the other, that only means that company A is doing much better than company B. Sony, Ninendo and Microsoft have already given hints to what they’ll bring into the console wars during their more or less two hours of unadulterated attention, and it looks like we’ll be seeing more of what we already know, but let’s hope it won’t be a snoozefest.

Nintendo, Finally Dropping Wii to $150?

Written on April 13, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

Is Nintendo really bringing Wii's price down to $150? Do we really even care?

Rumor is brewing around the gaming industry that Nintendo is finally going to drop the Wii down to $150 from its much overdue $200 price tag. According to reports from a “trusted source” via Engadget, the price slash is coming May 15th, less than a month before E3 2011.

Even though Wii is sitting on the top of the gaming console food chain year-after-year, the price cut is a much welcome move to consumers. However, that wouldn’t probably change the fact that Nintendo Wii still needs good titles to survive.

The Nintendo Wii has been around for a long while now, and with the rise of the Xbox 360 Kinect and the PlayStation Move, it seems like the revolutionary movement-based console is starting to lose its steam to the competition. Will the Nintendo Wii price slash be enough to nail the console’s dominance in the sales charts?
