Gioteck HF-1 PS3 controller designed for FPS gamers

By: Array

I have mentioned Gioteck a few times recently. The company announced during E3 that it would be bringing some of its cool gaming gear to the US. One of the items is the HF-1 PS3 controller.

The HF-1 connects to the PS3 via Bluetooth and is arranged in a configuration like the Xbox 360 controllers. I prefer the PS3 layout myself. The entire controller is designed for comfort in the hands during long gaming sessions.

Battle of the cylinders - Microsoft's Kinect vs. a log

By: Array

When first out the gate at E3's press conference this time last week, Microsoft's Kinect got lots of 'oohs and whoaas' from the crowd. But since then, the finer details that really matter have gotten out to the disapproval of many folks who were hoping for a more polished, less limited piece of motion capturing equipment. What first looked to be an incredible piece of technology that would change the way we play games forever, now is starting to look like a good concept, but with too many limitations.


Sure, Kinect is still getting a ton of attention all over the web; the issue is, the majority of it is negative with stuff like this.

Let's hope the finer details yet to escape from Sony's clutches will make Move a more attractive looking option.


Gioteck In2Link for the PS3 Slim launching soon

By: Array

One of the things that the PS3 Slim lost when it made the cut to a lower weight class was connectivity. The machine has only two USB ports where the older console had four.

A company called Gioteck has announced it will soon launch a new device called the In2Link module for the PS3 Slim. The module plugs into the two front USB ports on the PS3 and gives three powered ports on the front of the console.

Slim Xbox 360 console gets teardown

By: Array

Microsoft unveiled the new slim Xbox 360 at E3 this week and the units are already starting to trickle onto the market. With the machine being smaller many will be wondering what tech is inside the slim chassis.

AnandTech has taken the new 360 and torn it apart so we can see what the difference is on the inside. Obviously, the new 360 is much smaller and has a much smaller HDD than the original.

Next Wii might be 3D

By: Array

Nintendo has already unveiled the cool new 3DS portable console at E3. The little portable gaming system has 3D graphics without needing to wear glasses. It's interesting to see the 3DS while the Wii still lacks even basic HD graphics.




Kotaku reports that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has stated that the next game console from the company might be a 3D console. We already know that the next console has to pack in HD resolution, so if you go HD you might as well do 3D right?
