Poll Results - Are you going to buy Microsoft Kinect?

By: Array

Over 1,000 people voted on our previous poll and we asked you about Microsoft's newest and widely popular addition to the Xbox 360, the Kinect sensor.

Microsoft has stated that it will ship a staggering five million Kinect units by the end of the year and is already on track by shipping more than one million so far.

 

Are TweakTown readers going to contribute? According to our poll, only 15% of you said you are going to buy a Kinect sensor. That won't help Microsoft's lofty goal now, will it people?

 

A huge 63% of TweakTown readers voted that they are not interested in buying Kinect and 18% haven't heard of Kinect.

For the actual numbers, go here. In our latest poll, we want to know, are you going to upgrade to the Intel Sandy Bridge platform? Let us know! Please go here to vote!

 

Valve delays the release of Portal 2, sprinkles some humor on it

By: Array

I'm not really meant to post gaming news, but games like Deus Ex and Portal 2 are too big to not post... so I hope you enjoy reading it here at TweakTown! Valve have delayed the hotly anticipated physics nut busting Portal 2 by 4 months, but... they've spun it into something funny.

The news was from a press release titled "VALVE ANNOUNCES MAKING GAMES IS HARD". Now, obviously they've hit a brick wall and can't get it out any quicker, and because Portal guns don't exist in real life (yet) they can't just shoot their way out of this one.

OnLive Game System up for pre-order right now

By: Array

I will admit that I was excited at the prospect of OnLive when I first heard about it. Once I learned more about the system and realized that you had to pay monthly to access the OnLive network and still buy the video games, I wasn't nearly as interested in the service. I have tried OnLive and in my instance, it had some lag and the graphics weren't as good as some stand-alone games I have on my gaming PC, but it was certainly playable.

If you are a fan of OnLive, you can now pre-order the OnLive Game system that lets you hook OnLive to your TV in the living room and play some of the coolest games you can get on PCs and consoles from the comfort of your couch. The downside for gamers used to a PC is that you have to play using a gamepad that looks like the standard PS3 arrangement.

RumorTT: PSP2 dev kit pics?

By: Array

Well, well Sony - I clap in your general direction. There are pics out from an early Sony PSP2 development kit. Is it just me or do the pics (in their blurry quality) feel like an ultrasound when you have a baby on the way (having done this just months ago myself, with the arrows pointing to different parts of the babies growing body) but anyway! Pics!

Just like a growing baby - the PSP2 is in early stages yet obviously - but from these pictures obviously taken with a 45 year old camera, it looks to have a HD screen, two cameras (front and rear), microphone, two thumbsticks and a rear "trackpad".

LevelUp offers cool Rock Band Storage ottoman

By: Array

I really like to play Rock Band with my kids and friends every now and again. The thing I hate about Rock Band though is that the controllers that go with the game to take up lots of space. I have two-guitar controller, the drums, mic, drumsticks and other stuff that I have to find a place to stash after we are done playing. That can be a challenge and typically I end up with the drums upstairs, the drum sticks under the bed, and guitar controllers other places.

If you have the same issue storing and finding all your Rock Band gear, LevelUp has a great new storage device specifically made for Rock Band hardware. The storage ottoman is called the Rock Band Storage ottoman and has enough space inside for you to store your unassembled drum kit, games, standard controllers, and a lot more. The lid has Velcro loops for holding two guitar controllers.
