Sony Retires Production Of MiniDisc Players

Sony announced today that it will be cancelling its MiniDisc player. Laughably, I haven’t seen or heard of a mini disc player for the past 5 years so I had assumed they were already out of production, but I guess not!

The recordable 1GB Hi-MD discs that it uses will be cancelled a year from today. Hopefully not too many purchased one of these mini-disc players recently, but to be honest, I haven’t even seen them in stores.

Game On The Run With The G155

Sometimes, we are forced to go to unexpected business meetings, trips, or weddings, and we wish we could bring our video game console. I realize that there are Sony and Nintendo handheld gaming systems, but sometimes they just don’t do justice when we are looking for an immersive experience.

The G155 is a protective shell that was specifically designed to house a PS3 or Xbox360. Embedded within the shell is a 15.5″ LED hi-def display with HDMI input that lets you enjoy gaming in a bulky laptop experience.

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.

New Study: The Average Gamer Is 37 Years Old

Don’t worry too much if someone has told you that you were too old to be playing video games, they’re wrong. According to a new study released at E3, 72% of Americans play videogames, and of the 72%, 82% of gamers are adults.

The research was collected from 1,200 nationally representative households that were identified as owning either a video console or a PC that was used to play videogames. It turns out that the average American gamer is 37 years old, and has been playing for 13 years.

Xbox 360 Will Get Full Stereoscopic 3D


A new report states that Microsoft will reveal full stereoscopic 3D capabilities for its Xbox 360 gaming console at E3 this June. EuroGamer claims that the stereo 3D support is expected to work similar to PS3’s three dimensional effect and feature an HDMI 1.4 stereoscopic 3D in 1280 x 1470 twin 720p, allowing 720p to work with each eye.

Hardware-wise, the new Xbox360 won’t have anything to be desired beyond the 3D option and if you’re not into 3D, there won’t be much use for this new version.
