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.

Sony Invests $20M In Independent Games

Sony, this week, announced a three year investment to increase its PlayStation Network user base. After the devastating attacks occurred at Sony, the company is trying to figure out what they can do to give them a better edge against Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and a better foothold in the gaming industry.

This is not to say that Sony has slipped to third spot, at least not yet, but I feel that the company is trying to take preventative care before it is too late.

Of course, you are limited to a somewhat small screen, but you’ll have an entertainment portal wherever you go. Getting tired of trying to beat the same boss level 5 times? Why not unwind with an awesome 3D movie to get your mind off it?

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.

The Dovado router has a USB port, a 100Mbps Ethernet LAN (Local Area Network) port and a WAN (Wireless Area Network) port.

Just plug the ethernet into your pocket router and enjoy wireless Internet away from that desk tucked away in the corner of your hotel suite.

Gamevil Invests $10M To Partner With US Developers

The end goal, of course, is for Gamevil to deliver their high quality game titles to popular smartphone operating systems.

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.
