Poll Results - What type of gamer are you?

By: Array

Around 2,800 people voted on our previous poll and we asked you what type of gamer are you?

 

TweakTown image news/1/6/16179_01.png

 

Who was it that said PC gaming was dead or dying? A massive 83% of TweakTown readers claim to be PC gamers, while only 8% voted to be console gaming. You would probably expect that from a website that has a strong and rich history in delivering mostly PC based tech content, but it's still an impressive number.

 

Only 1% said that they are portable console gamers and phone or mobile device gaming scored a very lowly 0% of the votes. 2% said they play old school games such as cards and 5% said they don't have time to play games.

For the actual numbers, go here. In our latest poll, we want to know who makes the best quality computer speakers? Let us know! Please go here to vote!

By: Array

We already saw most of the sweet Razer Tron branded peripherals a while back when they were first unveiled. What we didn't have a good indication of was when we could buy the gear.

By: Array

The folks over at InsiderX have gotten the scoop on an upcoming Xbox 360 bundle hitting Aussie shelves on September 15 which looks real decent.

 

This is dubbed the Limited Edition Halo Reach bundle, sporting not only the Halo Reach game title, but a LCE silver Halo Reach themed console, two LCE silver Halo Reach wireless controllers, a headset and a 250GB hard drive.

Another nice touch that was mentioned is when you first turn the console on, it makes a Halo-themed sound and also the shield power-up sound is made when you press Eject.

 

Price? Microsoft are looking to launch it at $549RRP.

 

Microsoft killed MS Live vs. Xbox Live cross-platform after PC gamers dominate?

By: Array

I have long said that I will not play shooters on a console because I don't like playing with a controller. I prefer to control my games with a mouse and keyboard. You might recall that a while back Microsoft was talking about a new system that would let Windows and Xbox 360 gamers play head to head.

I have often wondered what happened to that plan after such along time with no word from Microsoft. Raul Sood from Voodoo PC claims that he hears that the reason it was cancelled is that console gamers were massively powned by their PC brethren.

By: Array

The RetroN 3 is a game console that can play cartridges from all three of those old systems and has ports to let you use the original controllers for gaming. The system also ships with a pair of wireless controls.
