By: Array

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.

Digital Storm launches Sub-Zero Liquid chilled gaming rig

By: Array

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.

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.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17623_267.jpg

 

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!

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17596_255.jpg

 

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".
