Xbox720 Will Have Avatar-Graphics

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.

AMD claims that the new Xbox will have Avatar-like graphics, which is a bold statement to make. The company went further to say that each character will have the capability of having a unique AI (artificial intelligence), rather than all of them acting in a predictable manner.

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.

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.

World’s Smallest 4G LTE Router From Dovado

Dovado has announced the world’s smallest 4G LTE router. It’s called the Dovado Tiny and it’s so small you can fit it in a child’s pocket. The device is compatible with over 140 USB modems and offers data speeds as fast as 65Mbps.

The Dovado router has a USB port, a 100Mbps Ethernet LAN (Local Area Network) port and a WAN (Wireless Area Network) port. The Ethernet port is great when a wireless network isn’t available (such as in some hotel rooms). 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.

Next Generation Xbox Unveiled At E3 2012

According to VideoGamer, it looks like Microsoft is planning to unveil its all-new Xbox360 successor at next years E3 trade show. In fact, Crytek, has already begun creating a new TimeSplitters game for the new console.

No clue on what we can expect the specs to be but we do know that the next gen console will run on DirectX 11 (the same platform that the latest Windows 7 PCs run on). Both Microsoft and Crytek declined to comment on the issue, perhaps hoping to make it more of a surprise as the next E3 closes in.

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.

Electromagnetic Sheet Powers Up And Networks Devices

The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology showed an efficient wireless power transmission system, demonstrated at the Wireless Japan 2011 conference. The system works as a 2D communications device and requires the user to place a gadget on the flat board.

The board then generates electromagnetic waves towards the gadget, rather than having an even distribution throughout the board. The underlying concept behind the system uses a 2.4GHz high frequency signal to capture the electromagnetic waves where the gadget is placed.
