Thinking of buying a Playstation 3? Heard some rumors about the inevitable slim version coming sooner rather than later? Ben Kuchera of Ars Technica kindly rounded up the evidence for your perusal.
I for one, believe in ol’ Ben Franklin’s saying: “Nothing is certain but death and a slimmer version of a Sony video game system.
I was digging around the deep recesses of Flickr earlier today, when I came across a picture of what could be one of the greatest video game console oddities of all time.
Apparently, this Rambo TV Game console came out at some point back in the 1990s.
the bbps‘ Marc DeAngelis is one unhappy Wii-owner. His friend pointed out several black vertical lines that flickered on and off the screen while they were playing. His friend added that that same thing happened to him; he had to have his console’s GPU replaced.
Sony revealed a lot of things at E3, but a price cut wasn’t one of them. Now I don’t know if this new-old rumor has anything behind it, but Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia is claiming that “industry sources” are claiming that “a $100 price cut on the PS3 in mid-August, just prior the launch of Madden (8/18) and the start of the back to school shopping season.”
It’s a sad day for seller/mgs fan/sad person ids3remix, as he put up his limited edition gunmetal gray 40 GB Playstation 3 for sale on eBay. I think he really needs the money, stat, or else he wouldn’t be selling his beloved console.
Rejoice (Japan)! New colors for Nintendo entertainment systems! And at last, new colors for the Wii. Well, new color, singular. Well, sort of a color. It’s black. Well, it’s different, anyway.
The new DSi is decked out in red, which is nice, but not a patch on this sexy black Wii.
While the matte surface is much more practical for a handheld, it just isn’t as slick as the shine on that Wii.
Check out these photos of the new Sony PSP Go portable videogame console / media player that just hit the Interweb.
The PSP Go is a new handheld that lightens the load of the older PSP models by making games available via wireless download or on Memory Stick Micro cards.
While these lumpy cakes certainly aren’t the most precise video game inspired baked goods I’ve featured here on Technabob, this is definitely the first time I’ve seen so many console cakes congregated in the same place.
There are cakey versions of the Gamecube, an NES, an Atari 2600, a TurboGrafx-16, a Sega Genesis and a Nintendo Wii all gathered around for a game of Duck Hunt on an edible TV.
At the ongoing Game Developers Conference in California, Zeebo Inc. unveiled the Zeebo, a video game console for people in the “middle class” of developing countries. The Zeebo will initially be offered in Brazil this July via a partnership with Brazilian manufacturer Tectoy.
Always thought you could improve on the gameplay of Tetris? Fancy yourself the creator of the next Super Mario Brothers? Thanks to this open source gaming system – if you’ve got the programming chops, you’ve got the chance to make the next great 8-bit video game.
The Fuzebox is a complete 8-bit gaming platform in a box that’s not much bigger than a pack of cigarettes.
Based on the open source Uzebox project, the Fuzebox is a ready-to-go kit from the folks over at Adafruit.
Gigabytes? Pssh. The Cell processor is the future. Of what exactly I don’t know, but it’s the future. The Cell is in each and every Playstation 3. Sony makes Playstation 3s. So if Sony says that 5GB of data equals 5 sunflowers then 5GB of data equals 5 sunflowers.
This groundbreaking technological term was first used in this epic commercial for the Playstation 3, in which the narrator – who is either Optimus Prime or a long-time smoker – asks us mere mortals, “With so much space on a single Blu-ray disc, the only thing you’ll need more of is time.”
Remember the Pandora open source handheld gaming console? Well after a long wait, it looks like the portable gaming system is getting closer to production from the looks of this revised design rendering I spotted over on the Open Pandora blog.
While the design hasn’t changed dramatically from the original renders, there have been some notable refinements.
Sure, you could be playing ping pong on your Nintendo Wii, but why would you play on a system with a boring rectangular sensor bar you can have a video game console comes with a receiver that looks like a penguin?
Thankfully, placing this penguin on top of your television will not cause it to explode, but it will, let you play a table tennis video game using a wireless remote paddle controller.
The Nintendo Sixtyfree Lite-R: the past of gaming, futurized in handheld form. While playing this shrunken, portable N64 might be a challenge, particularly when it comes to, say, some of the console’s excellent first-person shooters, it certainly looks good.
Why the heck would you drop $200 to $400 on a brand new console when you could get the same thing for a fraction of the price? Oh yeah, I neglected to mention that these alternate universe clones of the Xbox 360 and PS3 are crappy knock-offs from China – and that they only play 8-bit games.
These cheap-o fakes come courtesy of the shady sounding Rodisson Technologies Company, who only ask that you place a minimum wholesale order of 10,000 pieces if you want to get your hands on one of these 8-bit versions of popular modern-day gaming systems.
