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.  With the over­whelm­ing suc­cess of con­soles in today gam­ing mar­ket one would assume that devel­op­ing on a con­sole would be the cor­rect route to go.  But is this real­ly the case?  Does going to con­sole exclu­sive or con­sole first then PC real­ly bring you more mon­ey?  Zeboyd had a very inter­est­ing state­ment on their site.: “We are pleased to announce that Zeboyd Games has already made more rev­enue in less than a week on Steam than we have in over a year and a half on the XBox Live Indie Games ser­vice.” Zeboyd made more mon­ey, in one week, then they did in an entireRead more…

3DS Price Drop!

    Writ­ten by: CABXYZ… Yes you heard that right, just less than a year after the porta­bles release it is get­ting a price drop and a mas­sive one at that. Ear­ly this morn­ing Nin­ten­do released a press release stat­ing that the 3DS just 5 months after the system’s release will be tak­en from its $249.99 price tag to $169.99 on August 12th. Yes, you are not see­ing things the 3DS will be $169.99 ear­ly next month. Nin­ten­do of Amer­i­ca pres­i­dent Reg­gie Fils-Aime had this to say about the price drop, “For any­one who was in the fence about buy­ing a Nin­ten­do 3DS, this is a huge moti­va­tion to buy now,” “We are giv­ing shop­pers every incen­tive to pick up a Nin­ten­do 3DS from an amaz­ing new price to a rapid-fire suc­ces­sion of great games.” If you were an ear­lyRead more…

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.
