AMD spilled the beans on the upcoming Xbox 720, and having fueled the current Xbox360, we believe that Microsoft will pair with the graphics company once again as has proven successful in the past.

US Supreme Court Rejects Ban On Violent Games

The US Supreme court has recently rejected the 2005 California law that banned the sale or rental of violent video games to anyone under age 18. Now, parents could still purchase these violent games for their children, but any store caught selling the game to a minor could face a fine up to $1,000.

The court ruled against the ban 7-2, in accordance with the free speech rights found in the US constitution. Contrary to some beliefs that violent video games pose a bad influence on young children, the courts upheld that they did not want to filter what children are exposed to and essentially left that duty up to the parents or caretakers of the child.

Razer’s New Mouse Offers 6400 DPI

A good mouse is important for a number of reasons. Good mice are absolutely essential for those who game, as a greater DPI (dots per inch) allows the gamer to quickly re-aim his or her gun in a first-person-shooter game without losing too much time. For work, a mouse with a high DPI is essential for the telecommuter to quickly travel on the screen’s real-estate, allowing for patterned responses to come with ease.

At E3, computer manufacturer Razer unveiled their newest gaming mouse that is equipped with a 4G Dual Sensor that uses both an optical and a laser sensor.

Nvidia is grinding gears, but in the best possible way, with continued use of its DirectX 11 GPU (graphics processing unit). The company is offering the perfect median between the current GeForce GTX 550 and the GTX 560 Ti. This time, without the Ti, the company is releasing the new GeForce GTX 560 and is touted to be a replacement for the current GTX 460 1GB.

The new GTX 560, released today, will have an identical number of CUDA cores, texture units, and ROPs, but will have an overclocked system, increasing performance. I am currently running an Nvidia GTX 470 in an Antec 1200 case.
