Windows 8 To Support Xbox 360 Games ?

A number of sites are reporting that the Xbox 360 games could be playable on the next Windows operating system, Windows 8. While not yet confirmed, it could have many implications if true. Apparently the only thing PC users will have to do is have Windows 8 and pop the Xbox 360 game into their DVD drive and that is it.

However, your PC will still need to be powerful enough to run the games. In addition, if you want to play these games online, PC players will have to buy access into an Xbox Live feature like Xbox 360 users have to.

Limited Edition Star Wars Xbox360 Console

Are you a Star Wars fan and need a reason to replace that RRoD’d Xbox360 you have laying in the corner collecting dust? Well, we may just have a solution for you. The new Xbox 360 Star Wars edition is expected to hit US markets later this year, or perhaps during the first quarter of 2012.

So what’s new about this limited edition Xbox? Well, the hardware is pretty much the same you can expect on previous versions, except this one also has a Kinect sensor that will allow you to bypass the extra $150 for a second module.

Next Generation Wii U, Coming 2012

It looks like E3 has finally brought something of great substance for Nintendo fans, worldwide. The company has just unveiled the next generation Nintendo system, named the Wii U. While this won’t carry the same intensive graphics as the PlayStation 3 or Xbox360, it is essentially a High Definition Wii.

The controller itself has an integrated touchscreen, allowing you to do more and interact more with your games. You can even enjoy videoconferencing with your new Wii controller, and it almost seems like the controller is the highlight of the console.

Sony Isn’t The Only One, Nintendo Gets Hacked Too

I realize that we have covered over ten blogs on Sony hacks, but Nintendo recently got hacked as well. Thankfully, no personal data or company information was lost. The affected server was an affiliate of Nintendo’s U.S. unit and was unlawfully accessed a few weeks ago, although no damage was caused.

Some believe that the hack was to gather information, possibly an insider looking for something juicy to hand over to journalists, but we have no solid evidence to that claim.

Game Emulators Yanked From Android Market

Game emulators are programs that are available for download through mobile, desktop, and laptop devices, that allow users to simulate game consoles and play games they enjoy without having to pay for the console. The player usually just plays the game through mouse and keyboard instead of controller, but one could easily configure a game controller by obtaining the right hardware and software.

A third party Android app developer by the name of Yong Zhang has recently had his popular game console emulators yanked out of the Android market. His entire selection of apps was removed without warning.
