JediBot Uses Kinect To Fight A Duel

Tired of aspiring about the JEDI KNIGHT`s light saber? No, longer have a friend to play a Jedi Knight duel with? Well, your wishes have been granted by a group of Stanford students.

These passionate graduates have created a JediBot using Microsoft `s Kinect.

This is not just a game; it is a life-like experience in the Star Wars world. The JediBot is Orange colored arm which can fight like Luke Skywalker and like a good Jedi defend itself too.

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.

Microsoft Signs Android Patent Deal With Wistron

Microsoft announced the fourth patent-licensing deal in two weeks with a maker of Android devices, announcement timed perhaps to suggest that it has some momentum for its claims that Google’s mobile operating system violates Microsoft’s patents.

Wistron Corp, a spinoff of Acer, is the latest company to make an agreement with Microsoft in a string of lawsuits and royalty clashes that’s spanned the course of two months.

Microsoft Confirms Gears Of War 3 Leak

The latest news covering Gears of War 3 is about the torrent leak; apparently the leak has nothing to do with the final build.

CVG reports that Epic and Microsoft have both responded about the latest Gears of War 3 torrent leak that happened over the weekend, letting fans know that the leak has nothing to do or represent that the players will have with the real thing. The game will be finally released worldwide on September 20, 2011.

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.

Crysis 2 Gets DirectX 11 Support!

Crysis 2, developed by Crytek is touted to be one of the best games of all-time. I am not just saying that as a die-hard fan of the Cry Engine 3, but it really is considered the gold standard in modern graphics.

I am pleased to announce that Crysis 2 now comes with support for DirectX11, offering improved graphics, high resolution texture packages, and making Crysis 2 looking better than ever, especially to those who have the game for PC.
