  • Blockbuster bringing late fees back, unless consumers move to act…

    Digital is in, physical is out. You would think that a company who's bread and butter profits are made on physical rentals would be as gracious as possible. The company in question, Blockbuster, is here to defy the odds. Remember the good 'ol days where you could rent a game or movie and keep it for as long as you wanted without fear of late fees? Well, if you're a movie buff you're safe, however, if you happen to be a gamer, Blockbuster is bringing down the hammer on your over excessive gam...
  • From the department of “that was fast”: PSPgo already gets a price drop…

    If you thought Sony's pricing on the PSP Go was say...a bit overpriced, you wouldn't be alone. Not by a long shot. The biggest culprit that is causing people to feel like the PSP Go is a lack of value is the botched trade-in program that was to let old PSP/3000 users trade in physical media for certificates or cards for digital copies. Of course, a smaller screen, identical internal specs, and the inclusion of sub standard specs (WiFi b we're looking at you) rounds out a wholly bland release ...
  • Halo Xbox 360 mod looks outta’ this world…

    Since I'm on a mod kick this morning, why not move on from the mobile geek cave to something that is a little smaller a heck of a lot more affordable. Gaming console mods are nothing new. We have seen dozens pass through here at GS. Perhaps the most unique and well put together example of console modding to come through in some time the Halo Xbox 360 mod. The name is self explanatory. This 360 mod features a panoramic-like scene on the top of the 360 that is beautifully detailed. It does...

With included goodies such as: 32" LCD WiFi Onboard network that connects everything...everything to the TV PS3 Dolby Surround Sound External cameras viewable on the TV inside and....a Nespresso mac...
  • Xbox 360 wireless N adapter to cost half an arm?
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 7:06 am
    If you though Microsoft's gouging on Xbox 360 hard drives was bad, the latest rumor from rumor land has the Xbox 360's upcoming Wireless N adapter pegged at $100. $100! Can anyone say highway robbery. I understand it's a "new" product. But when you can get a normal wireless N adapter for ~$30, $100 seems like theft. Of course, if you really want N speeds you don't have any choice. Again, this hasn't been confirmed by Microsoft...yet. Instead an Ars Technica "mole" claims that this $100 ...
  • R2-D2 becomes gaming god. 8 consoles stuffed within. Projector and onboard sound system added bonus.
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 6:33 am
    Love classic games do ya? Have a thing for old beeping robots and wars that take place near the stars? Super. If you fit the bill, you may want to contact the Brian De Vitis, the creator of the R2-D2 Gaming Haven, and get the blueprints/instructions on how to build your own. Owning a life-sized R2-D2 replica cooler is geeky enough. Adding a gaming console to his innards takes the geek factor a step further. However, squeezing in 7 more consoles, an onboard sound system, and a projector to ...
  • PS4 and Xbox 720 Concepts long for your ocular attention…
    by Mike
    Posted September 22nd, 2009 at 9:16 am
    While an actual PS4 or Xbox 720 (if they're even called that) are still several years off, it doesn't hurt to dream does it? Not to mention, such awe-inspiring concepts give us gadget nerds a taste of what the future may hold as well as spurring creativity for future designs. In the image above, the device on the left is the conceptual PS4 while the mini-UFO looking thing is the next gen Xbox 720. The transparent touch panel and big twisting knob are definitely quite the sight. The 720 mea...
  • GoldenEye 007 new release outlook: Don’t hold your breath.
    by Mike
    Posted September 21st, 2009 at 1:42 pm
    Get your tissues ready and prepare to weep. If you're old enough to remember GoldenEye 007, (not only the greatest James Bond game ever, but one of the best games ever) and were hoping that it may make it's way to a new console such as the Xbox Live Arcade or Wii Virtual Console, you're going to be thoroughly disappointed. According to Rare, the company responsible for the N64 first person shooter, made it very clear that there isn't much hope for future renditions or even ports of the game ...
  • Sony shooting itself in the foot. PSP Mini games fail before they even had a chance.
    by Mike
    Posted September 21st, 2009 at 12:48 pm
    Sony's grand plan of having PSP Mini games take off and become as popular as and comparable to iPhone game offerings have become a little less realistic after an announcement last Thursday at a Game Developers Conference presentation. While PSP Mini games will benefit from a faster approval process, the grim details talk of limited functionality and features put a blemish on something that could have been much better. The list of disappointments on upcoming PSP Mini games include the banning...
  • Sony gets it’s own Red Ring Yellow Light of Death?
    by Mike
    Posted September 21st, 2009 at 7:07 am
    PS3 owners, have you experienced any issues with your console, specifically an illuminated yellow light that signals your unit is as good as dead? If you do, you're not alone according to BBC and apparently even Sony, though the latter will beg to differ. After a BBC Watchdog program investigating the (increasing?) number of "Yellow Light of Death" occurrences on Sony's PS3 went live, Sony naturally responded not so lovingly strongly denying the claims. First off, what exactly is the proble...
  • Pac-Man Rubik’s Cube brings old school gaming to an old school toy
    by Mike
    Posted September 17th, 2009 at 1:29 pm
    Depending on who you are, Rubik's Cubes are either a pleasant yet thought provoking way to pass time or they're an evil tool put forth by a Satan himself. Definitely two extremes. In reality, you either get it or you don't. Regardless if you even like Rubik's Cubes or not, the Pac-Man Rubik's Cube causes a retro nostalgia to wallow up from within the older gamers bringing them back to a simpler time without fancy graphics and hundreds of hours of game play. In it's completed state you'll n...
  • Become a statistic: Play video games. Eat food. Get fat.
    by Mike
    Posted September 17th, 2009 at 5:54 am
    Playing video games, especially extended gaming sessions, can cause a weird yet often experienced phenomenon. The phenomenon in question is the growing hunger that builds inside your gut with each punch, lap, shot, etc. Some have to pause their game, waste precious valuable seconds/minutes walking into the kitchen. Some are lucky to have a mini fridge in close proximity. But the coolest of the cool have a PS3 and are enjoying the new built in Papa Johns on screen ordering. Surprise! PS3 ...
