Wii Os Front-End Running on Windows

Wii Os Front-End Running on Windows
Some guy with too much time on his hands developed this painstakingly accurate menu system based on the Wii interface, coined “WiiOS.” The menu system is a very faithful reproduction of the Wii menu system, and he’s got it all tied together with his Wii-mote to let him control some emulated console games on his PC.

PS3 Sixaxis Rumble Solution Possible

PS3 Sixaxis Rumble Solution Possible
One thing sorely lacking from Sony’s SIXAXIS controller for the PS3 is the rumble sensation that’s present in pretty much all of the other major gaming systems out there.

Crush: Psp 2d/3d Platformer Looks Promising
Ever since the Sony PSP came out about 2 years ago, it’s gotten a pretty bad rap for its relative lack of quality gaming titles, especially when compared to the Nintendo DS.

Since the Sony PlayStation 3 hit shelves back in November, it’s been racked with complaints about a huge bug with PS2 backwards compatibilty.

Sony Finds a New Way to Take Our Money

Sony Finds a New Way to Take Our Money

Where Ms. Pac-Man Goes When She Eats Too Many Cherries
The answer is simple… The Pac-Man bathroom. Located in the independent gaming store, Game Junkie in West Chester, Ohio, this bathroom is decked out with a Ms. Pac-Man mosaic tile design. I particularly appreciate the scoring chart detail to the right of the mirror.
