    Customized Controllers

    It seems like the console manufacturers could do a little to allow of cosmetic customization of controllers. If you look at what Motorola is doing with the Motomaker and the Moto X, I feel like a similar idea could work for the console manufacturers. I feel like that could be a way for...

    Moto X - "The first smartphone that you can design yourself."

    The wrap up refers to "Carrier bloatware" but I didn't see anything in the text about this. Is this just the standard stupid, non uninstallable apps like verizon backup? Or is he calling the Motorola voice features bloatware? I'd be surprised if they were going to release this super bloaty.

    PS4 OS overhead uses 3.5GB of 8GB system RAM

    This makes some sense when coupled with the idea that the system is always recording your last 15 minutes of gameplay. That system is going to take some hardware along with fast switching and multi tasking. Compared with the current RAM limitations of the PS3 I think they have some room to...

    The Last of Us. Did you get it? How do you like it?

    I thought the game was phenomenal. I loved how that world came together, and the atmosphere was amazing. I always loved finding notes lying around, and really loved the series of notes from Ish, the boat captain. I almost hope some of the DLC covers some of his story. It could be interesting...

    Activate Hotspot Month to Month

    I've been thinking about getting a T-Mobile hotspot so I can test firsthand what their reception is like in the places I frequent. I want to just buy a hotspot outright from someone and activate it for one month. How does that work? Would I then buy a SIM from them and pick a plan? I have had a...

    Stupid Android UI strikes again

    I have seen several articles today mentioning an exploit found in specifically the Touchwiz implementation in the Galaxy S II. I think the case against manufacturers proprietary user interfaces is mounting...

    Slimmer PS3 model announced

    The 250GB console only (no game packed in) has to be $200 though doesn't it? It seems like they have been selling the PS3 for $250 for quite a while now. In long term preparation for the next console, they should be trying to get every last person who is curious about some current PS3...

    Slimmer PS3 model announced

    I wanted to see the disc loader in action and I found this little video too. Rumors of new PSN layout I thought it was interesting that they are working on revamping the psn this late into the PS3 life. Maybe they are testing some new stuff for PS4?

    Borderlands 2

    That sounds really fun. I have been doing that stuff in Borderlands just for the XP bonus you get for some of them. I picked my copy of Borderlands 2 up today on my lunch break. It will be hard not to jump right into it tonight without finishing the first one. Maybe I can come back to the...

    Borderlands 2

    I think time will tell on that. I haven't read any reviews that really discussed much of that stuff. I hope the network issues that I've had troubles with on the PS3 version will go away.

    Borderlands 2

    I downloaded Borderlands free from PS+ and have been really enjoying it so I decided to pre-order Borderlands 2. I don't usually like to do pre-orders because they really don't amount to much, however with Borderlands 2 one of the bonuses is the Mecromancer character who will be $10 when it...

    The PS3 may never get Skyrim DLC dumb.

    I have seen a few articles various places where Sony seems to have put some dev resources towards this problem with Bethesda. I've read rumors a few times about Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica devs going around to help other studios with development so maybe this will help. I have still...

    The Last of Us.

    I watched this video last night and at first thought it was the same old thing, but quickly saw where it was being played and presented a little differently. Its really impressive and I think it will be the last video I watch regarding The Last of Us. I'm sold, I don't need to overdo the...

    Playstation Plus

    This makes some sense. A lot of the free games have some DLC you can buy or in the case of Borderlands, it is coming out a few weeks before its sequel. Im looking forward to playing for the first time because I never have gotten around to playing Borderlands.

    PlayStation 4 Rumored to Support 4K Resolutions

    I think that makes sense too. As long as this is just a checkbox feature, i.e. something that is very easy to support because the AMD GPU they are using supports it easily, then I say fine, add that checkbox to the specs sheet. If this is something that will add any real cost to the console...

    (PSN) Dyad

    Ok, so I played some last night. I can see this being a game that I need to play in short sessions because you really can't blink much while playing. I'm not overly good, but its fun. I keep trying the trophy challenge where you hook 22 pairs, and I can consistently get 20, but can't get over...

    (PSN) Dyad

    Does this game have leaderboards? I can see this being something I convince a couple of my friends to get (like Shatter) and we can compete for high score.

    $99 Android based console on Kickstarter

    How different is this than Google TV with controller support? Don't the game designers just need to design for the current Google TV boxes and get the same thing. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of more options, that is my favorite part of Android, but I just wonder how this will be...

    Sony Buys Gaikai

    I'm not overly familiar with the company Gaikai, but Sony must have wanted to get to know them a little better. The cash strapped company bought Gaikai for $380 million this past weekend. That is interesting being they had such a bad year last year cash wise. What does anyone else think...

    U.S. Probes Cable For Limits On Net Video

    While they are at it can they investigate what they charge for cable boxes, and why they cannot have a whole house decryption system rather than require it at each tv? The worst computer we all own is that stupid power sucking cable box under the TV.

    Sony talks PlayStation 4

    I've thought this a few times too. I still expect the next gen to come out next fall, I am more curious about when they might announce the existence of their new hardware. Dream scenario to me, just for the utter balls and assholishness it would require would be for either Sony or...

    Sony talks PlayStation 4

    The graphics argument has been beaten to death in this thread. Whether you are on the side of they look fine to me, or I want more polygons, its hard to argue that the PC games aren't far outpacing the console games right now. They talked on the latest Weekend Confirmed podcast about how games...

    Sony talks PlayStation 4

    The economy has been shit for 4-5 years. Game sales verses just last year are down. All I am saying is for the people that are really enjoying your PS3s and Xboxes, that is fine, I am too. But I am really looking forward to seeing what a team like Naughty Dog or Sony Santa Monica can do...

    Sony talks PlayStation 4

    I am at work, so ability to provide links is mostly blocked by bluecoat filters, but video game sales are down pretty hard on consoles for the last few months when compared with the same time last year. That could point to people beginning to become bored with their consoles, who are now 6-7...

    discless consoles

    I dont wish for the consoles to go exclusively discless, but I sure would love to be able to have that option, day one, to purchase and download any game I want from the PSN. I also would love maybe a little break on the price for that, or at least for the prices to come down more quickly like...

    Last of Us - Gameplay

    Naughty Dog has actually split into 2 teams now reportedly. I hope they are distracting us with this great looking game while the other team is developing a launch title for Orbis. The last of us looks amazing though. Both Naughty Dog and Quantic Dream showed a lot of emotion in their demos I...

    Wii U won't support Unreal Engine 4.

    This isn't that surprising really but it is still disappointing. I wonder what the porting would be like from Unreal Engine 4 to 3. I wonder if there is going to be any chance that devs will be able to just port their UE4 games down to the Wii U at that point.

    Next gen consoles effect on PC gaming?

    I'd be interested to see either MS or Sony make good on their promise not to show any new hardware at E3 this year, but instead hold a separate press conference sometime this fall announcing it. Really though, as long as developers have some form of dev kits to start working on the games, they...

    "PS4 to Lock Out Used Games"

    Not to get off topic, but this seems to be one of the biggest issues with Sony. Out of touch leadership who is unwilling to listen to input from people that know what is going on. I don't sell or buy used games, but I still feel like having that option is helpful. I have recently bought...

    Where can you get a ps3 reball done?

    I am not sure if you are going to be able to find what you are looking for. I did a little research when mine went YLOD and came to the conclusion that most of the fixes were just short term patches. The biggest thing they are good for is getting your PS3 to work long enough to get some saves...

    Video Game Sales Plunge 42% In April

    You may ignore April as one month, but isn't this the 3rd or 4th month in a row this has been the trend? Also, 42% is pretty significant. It would be one thing for revenues to be down 10 or 20%, but this is a much bigger difference. It seems like there aren't as many new games coming out this...

    Starhawk Multiplayer

    I got this game because I was hoping to play some multiplayer. I have enjoyed it thusfar for that, but I don't have any PSN friends that are playing it right now. Likely none of them will either. Is anyone else playing this and looking for someone to team up with? I think this game can be...

    IGN: Starhawk Review

    I downloaded the beta for this but never really gave it a fair chance. I played in one match where nothing really happened. Everyone seemed to want to play defense, no one was attacking anyone. I didnt really know what I was doing either, so my lack of fun with that was mostly my fault...

    From pc to ps3

    Yeah, maybe try some different games. I have never played MW3, but that seems like jumping in the deep end of twitch based shooters. Killzone 3 multiplayer is free on the PSN, not that I can make any personal recommendations there either. I dont play many online games. It sounds like you need...

    Journey PSN exclusive

    On my first playthrough I enjoyed the game but I felt a little let down. I had let the hype get to me too much I think and the game didn't quite live up to what I had built it up to in my mind. However, being a bit of a trophy whore I decided to try to play through it again to see what I could...
