  3. Sony Unveils Even Smaller PS3, Continues to Miss the Point

    Well, it's official: At the Tokyo Game Show, Sony has just confirmed the existence of a PlayStation 3 that's slimmer than the typical PlayStation 3 Slim. Now that there's a console even smaller than Slim, though, we'll have to coin a new term. PlayStation 3 Thin, perhaps. A new hardware iteration is all well and good, but it appears that the bundle is just 1/5th smaller and 1/4th lighter. Without much else to go on, the whole thing seems rather pointless.

  7. The Definitive History of Gaming Consoles: The Video

    Our journey begins long, long ago, in 1972. The console was the Magnavox Odyssey, and at the time it was a major breakthrough in home gaming. But 38 years later, the Odyssey is one of over 450 gaming consoles, computers, and handhelds. The video below, compiled by Eliot Hagen of Elder-Geek, documents this long, crowded history. I don't care how avid a gamer you are or how much you think you know about the industry, there will be a whole bunch of consoles in here you've never seen before. And frankly, if there aren't, that could be very worrisome, and you should put down the computer and go outside. It's a beautiful day/night/whenever it is right now. So if you want a 23-minute, insanely comprehensive history lesson on gaming hardware, watch the video below. Let the music and the pictures envelop you in a comfy, nostalgic aura and take you on a journey through time and space.

  8. Nintendo’s Response to the Playstation Move: Unfazed

    This week, after months of anticipation, Sony revealed its new motion sensitive controller, the Move, at the Game Developer's Conference. the Move walks a path already trodden by Nintendo's Wiimote, the primary controller for the Wii, and so, one might ask, how does Nintendo feel about this long awaited foray into their territory?

    Predictably, they're pretty calm about it. Motion sensitivity has been the Wii's claim to fame, while other consoles have focused on HD graphics and processing power, but now Sony is rolling out the Move, and Microsoft is hard at work on its own motion sensing Project Natal. Kotaku asked Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, if this might mean that Nintendo should be looking to move into HD.

    "For us high definition by itself is not the next frontier," Reggie Fils-Aime... told Kotaku. "For us we need to provide a whole new compelling experience in our next generation."
