X-Dream Gyroxus Gaming Chair for PS3 now available for pre-order

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on August 9th, 2010

I’m okay with just sitting on the sofa while playing my PS3, but if you really want to immerse yourself in the game and have some money to burn, why not check out the X-Dream Gyroxus gaming chair?

It’s available for the Xbox 360, PC, PS3, PS2 and Nintendo Wii. The PS3 version is already available for pre-order at £399.95 (That’s $637). Let’s be honest here, immersion at that price isn’t going to get you much. But if you want a fancy new chair, this should be arriving in late August.

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

This guitar hero controller is perfect for the player that shuttles his instrument back and forth between home and various friends homes. The NEXiLUX wireless guitar controller breaks down into just a few pieces and fits neatly inside a bag.

It’s compatible with the PS3 or PS2, but you can also slide a Wii-mote inside of it and use it with your Wii. The makers also claim that it has more responsive fret buttons than the cheap controllers that ship with the games. If you prefer touch over buttons, there’s a set of five touch-sensitive fret buttons too.

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on December 3rd, 2009

Sony PlayStation turns 15This just makes you feel old. Can you believe it has been 15 years since the original PlayStation was launched? How many of us spent countless hours playing games on this thing? It was launched in Japan 15 years ago today and in the US and UK a year later.

Sony then launched the PS2 in 2000, and it remains the number one selling game console of all time. In 2001 Sony relaunched the original PlayStation as the PS One. Of course the PS3 came after that. Here’s to many more years of good gaming.

X-Arcade finally supports Xbox 360

Posted in Controllers by Shane McGlaun on October 27th, 2009

xarcadexbox360If you are an Xbox 360 owner who has been wishing that those fantastic X-Arcade controllers that PC and PS3 gamers have been able to enjoy for a long time worked on your console you are in luck. X-Arcade has finally announced that its controllers will work with the Xbox 360.

A new adapter called the X-Arcade PS2 to Xbox 360 adapter is now available that will let you use the X-Arcade Solo, Dual, or Tankstick with the Xbox. Strangely, it appears the adapter is an adapter for an adapter since you must have the PS2 adapter to play on the Xbox 360.

Warrior USB Joypad

Posted in Controllers by Conner Flynn on October 11th, 2009

Warrior USB JoypadYour current game controller is probably a little boring. Why not spice things up with this Warrior USB Joypad? Channel your inner warrior and use his power to conquer your foes, while trying to forget how uncomfortable this thing is.

The warriors eyes light up and it will vibrate with compatible games. It’s compatible with USB, PlayStation PS3 and PS2. To me, this thing looks like a bat with a Samurai head. I think they may have created a new superhero.

PS3 Motion Controller coming in March?Above is a Microsoft Word document from SEGA America’s official FTP site in SEGA’s news directory.

Mainly that Sony will be launching its PS3 motion controller in Japan in March of 2010, then elsewhere in the Spring.

There are also details of PlayStation 2 emulation on the PS3 and that “SCEA wants to sell all PS2 titles on PSN (GTA Vice City/Sonic/etc).” Want more? Maybe they will announce it at the Tokyo Game Show which starts Thursday.

Redbox debuts $2 video game rentals

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on August 16th, 2009

Redbox debuts $2 video game rentalsIf you’re a fan of Redbox and have been hoping for some video game rentals kiosks, then you will love this news. It’s happening. For $2 a night, you can rent games for Nintendo DS, Wii, PS2 and 3, and Xbox 360. That’s not a super awesome price compared to Blockbuster, but it’s not bad.

Right now the game selections are slim, but that should improve quickly, so no worries. At the moment it’s only in the Reno, Nevada area. But like their selection of games it should expand in no time.

Toshiba to join Blu-ray disc association

Posted in Toshiba by Shane McGlaun on August 10th, 2009

toshiba-logo
I always knew that Blu-ray would win the format war with Sony on its side selling the PS3. The PS2 helped get the DVD player into the homes of gobs of people and I figured the PS3 would do the same for Blu-ray.

Toshiba was the main backer of HD DVD and when its format was defeated it stayed out of the HD format market for movie players. The company decided this year to get back into the HD payer market and has announced that it has applied to be part of the Blu-ray disc association.
