When I think of X-Factor, I think of the mutant heroes in the Marvel Universe, not the Simon Cowell’s American Idol knock-off. Sure, Havok can’t belt out any tunes, but he can disintegrate your with his plasma blasts.
I can be honest and say that I’m a horrible photographer. I have a fancy DSLR camera that I bought a few years ago and I always use it in automatic mode. The reason I wanted the camera was that it had a fast shutter so I could actually take a picture of my kids, rather than an ear or an elbow at sporting events.
Sony has introduced a new hybrid computer that is made significantly less bonkers by the touch-friendly nature of Windows 8. The Sony Vaio Tap 20 is an all-in-one “tabletop” PC: it has a keyboard and mouse and other standard desktop hardware, with a couple of additions: the 20″ 1600×900 display is a touchscreen.
I was a pretty big fan of Sony’s HMZ-T1 3D head-mounted display when it first came out a couple of years ago. With its HD OLED screens, it created an insanely immersive personal viewing experience. However, it had a few major shortcomings, and Sony hopes to rectify those with the newly revealed HMZ-T2 model.
PS3 owners have a new entertainment option available for download on their game console. The application should be good for some laughs because it is a streaming comedy application from Laugh Factory. If you’re not familiar with Laugh Factory, it has been a place where some the biggest comedians in the business have performed for three decades.
If you’re have difficulty hearing or are deaf, going to the movies can be a challenge unless you manage to find a showing or a theater with special projected captions. Thanks to a new Sony technology, you can now view captions on any showing of a digitally-projected film, without requiring that everyone watch the captions.
There comes a time when gamers get sick of playing games and need to take a break, right? For some of you, taking a break means getting up to go pee, while for others, a break means watching some videos online.
A much-loved feature that was taken away from the PlayStation 3 could be making a comeback, but not through emulation. There’s a rumor among rumor-having places that Sony will be partnering with cloud gaming service Gaikai to stream PS One and PlayStation 2 games to “PlayStation hardware.”
I’ve gotten used to using headphones all of the time when I’m home. It’s just more convenient, and after a while you forget that you have them on, especially for gaming, watching movies, or just listening to music.
A while back we told you about the return of the Game Genie for Nintendo DS devices, but now the Game Genie is coming for those of us who use the PS3. As I said back then, many of today’s games just aren’t very hard compared to way back when, but if you do want lots of ways to cheat on your PS3 games, you will soon be in luck.
I can only imagine how bad it would’ve sucked if Sony had decided to make its next-generation game console, expected to be called the PS4 only support downloadable games. Maybe Sony learned its lesson with the PSP Go and the mega fail that was download only video games.
…but because I’m fine with my body’s aerodynamics as it is, I think I’ll just admire these plugs from a distance. No actually it’s because my tolerance for pain is so low – in fact I’m crying right now because of the terrible pain induced by typing.
Sony has announced that it’s working on a new video game called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. As the title suggests, this video game will have characters from some of the coolest and most popular games that have ever hit the PlayStation series of game consoles.
For a moment, I thought that this might be another concept design, but it isn’t. The Sony SmartWatch is a real product – an Android-powered watch that will allow you to use your smartphone even when it’s sitting in your pocket.
There are already several ways of tracking and restricting the Internet access of a specific device, but Sony has developed a concept that controls a much more basic commodity: electricity. Its Authentication Power Outlet concept has an embedded chip that can be made to remember not only individual gadgets but users as well.
We’ve featured Supermandolini’s sweet military-style NES pin before. It turns out that the design firm actually made a few more designs of the pins and calls the collection the Console Wars Veteran series, representing both the grizzled vets and the high-tech rookies of console gaming.
