psmove

Sony decided to make the most out of E3 by revealing the pricing details of their anticipated PlayStation Move motion controller. Now, motion controllers aren’t exactly new in the market, but Nintendo’s Wii has certainly brought the idea to the masses in an extremely fun (and profitable) manner. While Sony and Microsoft initially laughed at Nintendo’s “waggle controls”, it looks like they have decided to swallow their pride and include motion controls into their own respective consoles, with Sony’s effort ending up being known as the PlayStation Move.

Roundtable Concepts to roll out Street Fighter IV HDTV

May 24th, 2010 by Edwin in Gaming Hardware

sfiv-hdtv

Roundtable Concepts Inc. is more than ready to roll out the Street Fighter IV HDTV in the coming weeks, where this is no clone device, but is instead an officially licensed Capcom piece of hardware. Guess only fans of the Street Fighter franchise will need apply, as the missus might not be too fond of seeing your favorite Street Fighter characters and/or logo embellished on the bottom two corners of the frame, where you can choose from 32″, 40″, 42″ and 46″ LED HDTV’s. Touted to be the perfect HDTV for the Street Fighter fan, a Street Fighter character that appears on the casing will also make another appearance on the display for a good 8 seconds whenever you power it on – definitely not something folks who want instant access to their TV whenever they press the power button, eh?

Well, those green eyes can be exorcised once and for all now with the IntensaFIRE rapid-fire device that is now available for the Sony PS3. This is one gaming kit for the controller which clicks into place without the need for any glue or soldering, measuring 9/16″ x 9/16″ with a recommended retail price of $69.95. Compared to other similar products in the market, that figure is a bargain considering the rest are going for as much as $199.

bayer-didgetDiabetes is a lifelong disease that thankfully can be managed and treated with the right system in place. Of course, when it comes to kids, getting them to take regular insulin shots could prove to be a challenge (how many times have we adults skipped a dose of medicine, never mind insulin shots, simply because we conveniently forgot?), which is why Bayer Diabetes Care has announced its DIDGET blood glucose monitoring system that will work directly with the Nintendo DS and DS Lite handheld consoles. This is the only blood glucose meter that hooks up to a console, and aims to help kids manage a lifelong disease by rewarding them for building consistent testing habits and meeting personalized blood glucose target ranges.

PlayStation Move announced by Sony

March 11th, 2010 by Edwin in Gaming Hardware

ps-move

Sony knows that they are lagging behind Nintendo terribly in terms of hardware sales for this console generation despite having superior hardware, but that gap seems to be closing recently (although there is still a long way for Sony to go before they can catch up), and this is due to the Wii’s initial momentum dying off, a lack of quality titles on Nintendo’s platform and better exclusives on the PS3 among others. Well, fast forward to today and we have Sony announcing the PlayStation Move motion controller for the PS3 which will roll out worldwide later thsi fall, boasting a motion-based, high-definition gaming experience unlike anything on the market. Not only that, this launch will also include the PlayStation Move sub-controller which is meant to be used along with the motion controller for intuitive navigation of in-game characters and objects.
