After you’ve adorned yourself with some Pac-man and Ghost rings, why not round out the look with this classic Atari joystick necklace?
The tiny joystick pendant measures just .5 ” x .75″ x .5″ and comes on a 12″ silver tone chain.
UK alt band, WeAreWater might sound a bit like Radiohead, but their video looks like something more appropros of a band with a name like Atari Teenage Riot.
Their new music video for “Glass”, by Seven/Seven Productions is inspired by a number of classic eighties video games including Space Invaders, Pac Man, Pitfall, Donkey Kong, Pong and more.
It seems strange to me that a device called the “Coleco Sonic” would play classic SEGA games, but that’s just what this little portable system does.
Available for pre-order now from Target, the $49.99 Coleco Sonic handheld features 20 classic SEGA titles from the old 8-bit and Game Gear era, including:
Sonic Drift 2
Sonic Triple Trouble
Alex Kidd in High Tech World
Alex Kidd in Miracle World
Ecco II: The Tides of Time
Fantasy Zone: The Maze
Kung Fu Kid
With the Coleco/SEGA branding weirdness going on, I find it especially ironic that the most comprehensive details can be found in the AtariAge forums.
I’m a big fan of Ben Heck’s amazing console mod projects, and this one is no different.
Ben’s latest challenge: turn an Atari Jaguar console into a portable. As usual, the result is quite stunning. He managed to cram the entire system into a box about 1-inch thick with a built-in LCD panel and the ability to run it off of a (somewhat unwieldy) battery pack.
According to a post at GWN, Microsoft clearly does not sanction the use of the popular Nyko Intercooler on the Xbox 360.
The first Microsoft rep stated that the device simply drains too much power from the 360.
Lik-Sang, one of my favorite places for imported game systems and accessories from the Far East has been unexpectedly shut down as a result of increasing pressure from pending litigation from Sony. The nail in the coffin appears to be a recent judgment that ruled their sale of PSP consoles from Asia to Europe was unlawful.
With all the ridiculous looking gameplay videos we’ve seen coming out for the new Nintendo Wii, I thought you might find this amusing:
I can’t decide whether I like the tea time or the tattoo artist game better.
Pictures of the 20GB and 60GB models of Sony’s Playstation 3 console have surfaced and we can finally see the differences between the two models.
While the 20GB model features a completely black case, the 60GB model features some (IMHO, tacky) chrome accents.
[UPDATE 10/20/2006: According to this post at Gizmodo, this was either a hoax or an erroneous report. Too bad.]
While the photograph below might seem a little shady, there’s a rumor on the street that Microsoft announced a 100GB hard drive for the Xbox 360 during a presentation at their Korean X06 conference.
For several years, a French artist going by the name “Space Invader” has been roaming the streets all around the world and creating subliminal (and some not so subliminal) Space Invaders tile installations in all sorts of public spaces.
For some time there have been rumors circulating around the web about Sony’s upcoming Playstation 3 and possible support for Linux.
According to this press release from Terra Soft Solutions, the rumors appear to be true.
Check out these nifty mini artworks by artist Cynthia Malaran, inspired by classic computer and video game systems.
Currently available works include the Apple Newton, Classic Macintosh (diptych seen above), Atari and NES joysticks and a 3.5″ boot disk.

According to this post over at Kotaku, the Sony Playstation 3 will only include a crappy composite video cable when it’s released in Japan.
Apparently, even though the Playstation 3 is all about high definition gameplay and movies, you’re expected to go spend even more money to get it to output onto anything other than a crummy old TV.
