Nintendo has been absent from CES for 16 years now - but are making a return in 2011.
They've decided to have a stand at America's biggest tech show - will it be the upcoming Nintendo 3DS handheld? Or could it be the Wii HD... could it be something completely different?
Geeks and Tron go together like peanut butter and jelly. PC gamers know that Razer makes some of the coolest and best gaming peripherals on the market and when Razer unveiled the cool Tron branded gaming gear a while back a lot of geeks sat up and took notice. Razer has now announced that the cool Tron gaming mouse is shipping.
If you don't recall this mouse, it has the same sort of graphics with blue lines all over it that the Tron work in the new flick has. It also has sound effects from the movie integrated with the mouse and uses a 3.5G laser sensor. That laser sensor has sensitivity up to 5600 dpi and the mouse uses an ambidextrous design.
The geeks around these parts slant to the more hardcore than geeks that might normally be looking at gaming PCs from Digital Storm. Most of us probably roll our own rigs, but there are times when machines offered out of a box ready to go have their appeal. This is one of those times. Digital Storm has unveiled a new gaming rig called the Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled system. The machine uses liquid cooling on the CPU and some of the other hardware inside.
The liquid cooling system isn't just a radiator and a couple water blocks crammed inside one of the gaming rigs the company already offered either. The machine uses a liquid cooling system that has liquid that is chilled to under 0C using peltier tech. Around these parts peltier tech is something many will be familiar with, but the general PC gaming geek might not be.
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!
Microsoft's second foray into the console gaming world was the Xbox 360 - which today, turns 5.
As you would say with a child's birthday - oh how time flies. Another year, and the 360 is still as successful as ever especially with the recent launch of the Kinect.
The "Big Six" retailers are having major Black Friday sales - only a few days left until some bargains can be had.
TweakTown are here to .... tweak your bargains ;)
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.
Yeah baby. Deus Ex: Human Revolution gameplay trailer is out for your eyes to feast on!
The long awaited (compared to some video from the game) in-game gameplay trailer footage is out from TGS 2010.
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.
Microsoft brings controller-free entertainment to Australia today, with Kinect for Xbox 360 launching at retailers in time for Christmas.
