The Ultimate Gaming FPS simulator or the 1st Holodeck!
This ultimate gamFPS simulator was built by the crew at “The Gadget Show” a tech show from England on Channel 5. Armed with the E3 demo of Battlefield 3 and about $650,000 they have made the closest thing to a holodeck I’ve ever seen! Using ambient lighting, a hacked Kinect controller, a floor that lets you simulate walking without moving, some remote contolled paintball guns, and a 360 degree full room screen these guys have built something insanly cool! So, if you got that kinda scratch lying around watch the video to learn how to build your own! Source: Engadget

Warner Brothers Pulling Movies from Redbox… Blockbuster Exclusive
About a year back Warner Brothers announced that it would be releasing it’s movies for rent at blockbuster 28 days before they released them to Redbox, Netflix and others. Today, after discussing this with a couple of Blockbuster employees Warner Brothers and possibly one other studio are going to be pulling their movies from Red Box and going with Blockbuster exclusively. This is big news as this is the first time a studio, to my knowledge, has ever gone exlusively with a single delivery method for it’s movie titles outside of the Betamax vs. VHS and HDDVD vs BLU-RAY. Exclusivity from any given movie production company could fragment the rental market and shift the balance of power over to what was considered to be a dying company. Blockbuster, who was recently purchased by dish network has gone through a series of reorganizations to make theRead more…

PC Better for Indie Developers Than Xbox Live?
Our friends a Zeboyd games are Indie Developers, and as such they have a limited budget, it is very important for them to choose the platform that best suits their needs and that will turn them the quickest returns.

Uncharted 3 Beta Stats
It came, it saw, it blew our minds. The Uncharted 3 beta has wrapped up and now we have to wait until November to get to the fun again. Playstation posted some numbers on the beta saying it was the largest beta on the Playstation network to date. Here’s some food for thought: ‑Total unique Beta players: 1.53 million people ‑Total kills: 1.9 billion ‑Total Cash collected: 1.4 TRILLION dollars (that’s greater than the gross domestic product of Spain, the eleventh highest GDP in the world!) ‑Total shots fired: 48 billion ‑Total matches completed: 22 million ‑Total time played: More than 362 years worth of matches Yea pretty insane it what I thought too.
