Leak: Sony Going Deep With Virtual Reality

Hopefully the days of a silly console controller are over. I’ve said it before, but I am getting tired of playing console games with the dual joy-stick. Sure, it was awesome in 2002, but times are changing and we are living in a world where we want to interact more with our media.

Think about how Google+ has their hangouts, a rich way to communicate with one another via videochat, and how about the new Wii U and the touch-screen controller? The Xbox Kinect? The more you think about it, the clearer it becomes- the concept of fun is being defined by how much we can do with our gadgets, and Sony might be catching on.

Xbox360 Gets A New Processor

The Xbox360 250GB slim models are getting a new processor to keep up with the current demanding games. Microsoft stated that the new chips will reduce heat output and manufacturing costs, as well as improve gameplay.

The new chip won’t be anything fancy, just an upgrade to the current System-on-Chip processor that combines the GPU, CPU, memory, and I/O logic onto a single chip. The company claims that they have taken five years to perfect the chip, and it will subsequently cut down on the size of the motherboard, power supply, as well as offering better heat management.
