The Psyko 5.1 gaming headset

Most of us are now familiar with 5.1 surround sound systems that allow us to enjoy (almost) cinematic audio experiences in our living rooms when watching movies or playing games. The Psyko 5.1 gaming headset aims to offer a similar experience by using air tubes to direct sounds to the ears from five speakers fitted in the bridge and subwoofers within each ear cup.  Read More

Nintendo has announced that it intends to launch a 3D version of its DS handheld console

The rumor mill has started again. Does it ever stop? But this time (for once) Apple is not at the center of it - this time it's the turn of Nintendo to bathe in the blinding light of speculation and is, to a large extent, the company's own doing. In what has to be amongst the shortest releases I have ever seen, Nintendo has announced the forthcoming availability of a new portable gaming device where users will be able to enjoy 3D effects without glasses.  Read More

Sony’s motion controller for the PS3 first unveiled at E3 in 2009 now has a final design along with an official name.

New friends, more zombies and coming to a Mac ... Left 4 Dead 2 will be one of the first t...

Many people recognize Macs as being great work tools, especially for those in the creative sectors. However, if you like your games, often the PC was your best platform because of the amount of available content. Some Mac users were forced to deploy Parallels, Crossover Games, or Boot Camp, to play PC games on their Mac, but they've all got their drawbacks. So Mac users rejoice – Valve, a major provider of online gaming through its Steam online distribution service, is coming to OS X users. From April, Steam and Valve's library of games that include Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, Portal, and the Half-Life series will be available on the Mac. And because the company is treating Macs as a tier-1 platform, all future games and updates will be simultaneously released on Windows, Mac and Xbox 360.  Read More

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Having spent around five hours with the single player campaign and around 15 hours on multiplayer, I still feel I've only scratched the surface of what's on offer in Bad Company 2, so I'm not going to call this a full review. My impressions focus on the multiplayer aspect of the game. In short, it's the new high-water mark of multiplayer gaming on the Xbox 360.  Read More

Whether or not such educational games are effective in teaching the three R's is a topic for another day, but an Arizona State University scholar says commercial blockbuster video games can teach educators a thing or two about how to better educate children.  Read More

The Robo-Catcher captivates some youngsters in Japan

Claw vending machines have caused wide-spread frustration in arcades the world over for decades. Known as UFO catchers in Japan, and sometimes as 'teddy pickers' or 'skill testers' in other countries, these games offer little entertainment and even less hope of success. Well, for me anyway... But now that Japan-based company Mechatrax has developed the Robo-catcher I might have some improved hope of entertainment, if not some realistic chance at winning.  Read More
