Ant Commandos Double Range Guitar

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on May 22nd, 2008

Ant Commandos Double Range Guitar
The Ant Commandos Double Range Guitar sells for $59.99 and does double duty, since it can play both Guitar Hero and Rock Band in one guitar. The Double Range Guitar plays PS2 and PS3 versions of both Guitar Hero (I, II and III) and Rock Band.

It operates on 2.4GHz wireless technology with a belt clip that gives players unlimited freedom. All of the functionality is retained, like a second set of Rock Band solo buttons near the strum bar and distortion effects. This is a great option for those with limited space who want to play both games.

Neo Geo Stick 2 available for the Wii

Neo Geo Stick 2 for the Wii
Having grown up with arcade games, I love playing some of the old school games with arcade sticks. If you’re like me and are looking for a good arcade stick for the Wii, look no further. The Wii version of the Neo Geo Stick 2 is an arcade-style, ball-top controller that was previously available for the PS2 from SNK-Playmore and Sega Logistics.

This new edition looks like it’s still got non-analog L and R buttons hugging the four primary convex buttons like parentheses. It would appear that they’ve decided to keep the classy black color too, which seems odd for the Wii, but it’s a beauty. It’s probably the best arcade stick I’ve seen for the Wii. You can get it right now for $59.90.

Guitar Hero custom wood guitars

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2008

Guitar Hero custom wood guitars
Everyone loves Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but let’s face it, the out of the box instruments they give you won’t make you feel like a Rock God. Here’s your chance to get a beautifully handpainted guitar worthy of a real rocker. These limited edition art guitars are individually painted with familiar logos and imagery from several popular rock bands.

Make no mistake, these aren’t just cheap paint jobs, the images are embedded under a protective coating, so you won’t scratch them off while playing Barracuda for the 1000th time. Which is probably why it will cost you $399. ArtGuitar takes a real wood Peavey AG RiffMaster controller, then adds the rock art from various artists like KISS, Lynyrd Skynrd, Ozzy Osbourne and Pantera. At the moment, the controllers are only available for the PS2, but hopefully they’ll get around to Xbox 360 and PS3 versions soon.

The Keyboard Organizer wants to help you keep your keyboard area tidy and organized. It’s the world’s first patented storage caddy inside of a working keyboard!

Activision to launch Aerosmith Guitar Hero

Activision to launch Aerosmith Guitar Hero
This news should make both Guitar Hero fans and Aerosmith fans very happy. Activision announced plans to base an installment in the Guitar Hero series around America’s best selling hard rock band Aerosmith. The new title is scheduled for a June release and will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii and PS2.

Players will be able to play as the band’s guitarists Joe Perry, Brad Whitford and bassist Tom Hamilton. Just like other versions of the hit game, players will progress from an unknown band to rock legends, this time following the story of the band, with some Aerosmith concerts and venues. Interestingly, Activision has promised Aerosmith’s extensive back catalog, as well as other songs from other artists that inspired the group.

Satin Silver Playstation 3 drops in Japan

Posted in PS3 by Darrin Olson on February 5th, 2008

Satin Silver Playstation 3 in JapanNow that the U.S. might be getting the white model of the PS3 the folks in Japan always need to have something a little more and have added a Satin Silver Playstation 3 model to the lineup. This makes a total of 3 colors available in the original black, white and now the most recent silver.

This model is also the 40GB version with the lack of PS2 game playing capabilities, card reader and fewer USB ports, but nevertheless seems to be helping out sales for Sony. The satin silver model will retail for ¥39,980 (about $374 USD). Sony will also release to Japan a matching DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller (not included) which will be in the same satin silver color. Sony has the controller retailing at 5,500 yen (about $52 USD).

Best Buy to phase out 80GB PS3

Posted in News,PS3,Rumors by Darrin Olson on January 26th, 2008

Best Buy rumored to discontinue the 80GB Sony PS3 game consoleAccording to some leaked information from a Best Buy employee, the retailer sent out an internal memo that the 80GB Playstation 3 is scheduled to be “going closeout”, which basically means they will sell what’s on shelves and not stock anymore. The internal communication states that this is expected to take place as soon as January 28.

It’s been apparent that the 80GB model of the PS3 hasn’t had the selling power of the smaller and cheaper models, but since the removal of the 60GB models this leaves the shelves with nothing that is backwards compatible with PS2 games. It also limits consumers to the scaled down PS3 without the memory card reader and fewer USB ports.

2007 game sales topped by Nintendo Wii, Halo 3

Posted in Games,News by Darrin Olson on January 17th, 2008

Halo 3 tops the list of best selling games of 2007NPD has released the year-end sales numbers for non-PC video games in 2007 showing record figures for the industry. The year 2007 brought an impressive 43 percent increase in sales compared to 2006 with a total of $17.94 billion.

Game Consoles
The highlights of the year come as no surprise if you’ve been reading our coverage of game console sales with the Nintendo Wii topping the list of most console units sold at 6.29 million. The Wii spent the year at a lower price-point than rival consoles and caught the attention of a wide range of gamers. Behind the Wii in console sales was the Xbox 360 with 4.62 million units sold in 2007, which was helped out a little bit by the wildly popular Halo 3. Next in line was not Sony’s new Playstation 3 but it’s older brother, the Playstation 2. Sony moved 3.97 million PS2 units in 2007 and 2.56 million PS3s.

November a hot month for video game sales

Posted in Games,News,PS2,PS3,Wii,Xbox 360 by Chetz on December 14th, 2007

November 207 video game sales topped by Call of DutyThe marketing research firm NPD has turned in their analysis of what the top video game titles and consoles were last month and the news is very good for the industry as a whole. Leading the top in sales of new software was Activision’s “Call of Duty 4″ for the Microsoft Xbox 360 which sold an impressive 1.57 million copies. Nintendo’s “Super Mario Galaxy” came in second place and if you combine the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sales for “Assassin’s Creed” it would actually take the silver medal. Not coincidentally Ubisoft’s “Assassin’s Creed” has emerged as the best-selling new IP for games in recent years.

Nintendo’s handheld DS gaming device sold an amazing 1.53 million units in November which was enough to give it the top of the chart for hardware sales. In second place was Nintendo’s Wii gaming console with 981,000 Wiis sold followed by Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in third spot with 770,000 units finding homes. Sony moved 577,000 PlayStation Portable to give it fourth place and the price drop in the PS3 convinced 466,000 consumers to go out and buy one of the consoles last month.

Time tells you the top videogames of 2007

Posted in Games,Halo,Nintendo DS,PS2,PS3,Wii,Xbox 360 by Chetz on December 12th, 2007

Time Magazine top video games of the year 2007Time magazine has released its list of the top ten videogames of the year. Can you take a guess at what made their number one spot? If you guessed “Halo 3″ you don’t win a prize. “Like a pebble that has been rounded over the centuries by the gentle splashing of the ocean waves, ‘Halo 3′ has become the perfect hardcore first-person combat simulator,” said Time in their idol worship of the Xbox 360 killer app. “By dint of painstaking labor on the part of its developer, Bungie, it has been refined over three installments to the point where it delivers only pure, unadulterated gaming bliss.” Who knew that the editors at Time were down with playing some Master Chief deathmatches?

Of the titles that made Time’s best of 2007 list six are exclusive to one videogame system, of which three are for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and one each for Sony’s PlayStation 2, Nintendo’s DS and Wii console systems. Why didn’t at least one PlayStation 3 exclusive title make it on Time’s list? And no “Guitar Hero III” (or is that game now redundant that “Rock Band” is out and lets you play drums as well as guitar?)

Ghostbusters get their game on

Posted in Games by Chetz on November 15th, 2007

Ghostbusters video gameI still ain’t afraid of no ghosts! The boys in khaki armed with their proton packs and spirit trap boxes are coming back. Of course I’m talking about the Ghostbusters but instead of a new movie starring the fabulous paranormal foursome it will be Vivendi Universal that delivers them to us as a new “Ghostbusters” video game. The publisher has announced a fall 2008 release for the “Ghostbusters” game and it’s signed Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson to reprise their roles in the game. Also returning is Annie Potts as the Ghostbusters’ secretary and William Atherton as their pain-in-the-ass, Walter Peck. (Remember the line “It’s true, this man has no dick”? That was Murray to Atherton.) Ramis and Ackroyd are writing the game’s story so it should be just as good as the two movies (but hopefully more like movie number one.)

Sony bringing 40GB Playstation 3 to the US

Posted in News,PS3,Sony by Darrin Olson on October 18th, 2007

40GB Playstation 3 from Sony coming to the U.S. on NovemberSony has announced today that the 40GB Playstation 3 that was recently announced for Europe and Japan will indeed be coming to the US this fall as well. The new 40GB PS3 will retail for $399 and start selling on November 2. It looks like it has the same configuration as the other releases as well including the lack of backwards compatibility for PS2 games, no memory card reader and two USB ports short. No word on a white version of the console for the US, but the 40GB PS3 will also come bundled with Spider-Man 3 on Blu-ray disc.

Sony states in the press release that those wanting backwards compatibility should look to the 80GB model which is also receiving a price cut effective immediately. Sony has given the 80GB PS3 a $100 price drop from its original launch price of $599, pricing it a $499 today. We can never complain about price drops but even with the cut the PS3 is still the most expensive latest-generation console on the market compared to its rivals Wii and Xbox 360.

Sony discontinuing 60GB PS3 in UK

Posted in News,PS3,Sony by Darrin Olson on October 8th, 2007

Sony announces it is going to discontinue the 60GB PS3 model in the UKJust last week we found out that Sony had finally given a price cut for the PS3 in the UK, offering a Value Pack with the 60GB console and two games for £349 (down from the original 60GB PS3 price of £425). They also announced a new 40GB model that will go on sale in the UK in October (and hopefully to the US soon after) which lets gamers become PS3 owners at an even lower price of £299.

The new 40GB model lacks backwards compatibility, a couple USB ports and a card reader, but nevertheless allowed a larger audience the ability to get on board with the PS3. At this point folks in the UK had a couple options, they could get a better deal with the larger drive capacity and all the features or save a few more bucks and not be able to play their PS2 games on the PS3, but not for long.

Sony confirms cheaper 40GB PS3

Posted in News,PS3,Sony by Reuben Drake on October 5th, 2007

Sony 40GB Playstation 3 slated for release in UK in OctoberSony today released an announcement confirming rumors and FCC leaks of a less-expensive 40GB PS3 launching before the holidays. According the the announcement this model is currently only going to be available for Europe but it wouldn’t make sense for Sony to only release it in one area where PS3 sales are suffering. Hopefully it will be making its way to the US soon.

The new 40GB model will retail for €399 in the UK and aside from the drive size the new PS3′s will also lack 2 of the four USB ports and will have no memory card reader in order to cut some costs. It will also not be backwards compatible for PS2 games which isn’t too big of a deal for Europe models since software manages the backwards compatibility but for the U.S. it kinda’ stinks. We’ll have to watch this holiday season to see if this helps Sony take a bigger bite out of latest-generation game console sales and we’ll keep our eyes peeled for a U.S. targeted 40-giger.

Rock Band Pricing and Release Unveiled

Posted in Games,PS2,PS3,Xbox 360 by Darrin Olson on September 29th, 2007

Rock Band game pricing and release date for PS3, PS2 and Xbox 360Information on the release of the new “Rock Band” game from MTV has made its way into the blogosphere today flaunting a lower-than-expected price. The game is to be released for both the Sony PS3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360 on November 23, both priced at $169.99. As an early surprise, Rock Star will also be available for the PS2 the following month on December 10, going for $10 less at $159.99.

The games will come bundled with a single guitar, microphone and a drum kit. Also, that guitar that comes bundled for the PS2 and PS3 won’t be tethered with any wires letting you rock out more freely but unfortunately the Xbox 360 will require you to plug it in, at least for a while. A wireless guitar model for the 360 is expected to come up sometime next year.
