The Sony Reformation

173d ago ... We know them as a hardware company, but over the past few years, Sony has been slowly transitioning away from hardware and towards being a service type company. Many factors are at play here. In the TV and computer markets, they were outdone by competitors who could produce for far more cheaply. The strong yen did not help them in being competitive overseas either. In their other portable elect...

Nintendoom: Part 2: Buyout / Merger

194d ago ... The other option, as I said previously, is to accept a buyout offer in their favor. A buyout rarely goes in the favor of the company being bought, but Nintendo isn’t a company filing for bankruptcy. It’s a company with decades of history, and a stable of franchises, games, and iconic characters that can enhance any entertainment investors overall image. Apple would likely be a big name tha...

Xbox’s biggest threat: Microsoft itself

392d ago ... Recently, Microsoft released their K10 report [1] which detailed how well Microsoft has done over the last fiscal year. The report details how much the Xbox brand has lost this fiscal year which a lot of users, even I, were shocked by. A lot of these losses can be attributed to launching a new console and even the report discuss a large amount of cost being attributed to hiring of new staff. Al...

Bad Analogy: Comparing The Rise of Smartphones to TV and Video Game Consoles

749d ago ... Things have heated up since the announcements of the One and PS4. A big talking point seems to be the TV angle of these consoles and it is debated at length if TV is really such a big thing. I have no problems with that debate except for one tiny little analogy which keeps popping up from time to time. Too many people compare the rise and functionality of smartphones as proof that TV and gamin...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 17: NFS Hot Pursuit

1313d ago ... I took a trip to GameStop today to finally pick up Need for Speed Hot Pursuit after selling my unused iPhone 3GS. I was going to pick up either Metro 2033, NFS The Run, or Dead Island, but I decided on just one game for now - no need to get greedy when I still have money to spare. Anyhow, I remember playing the demo and was incredibly impressed with the improvement of driving and general gamepl...

The Untouchables – iPhone Games vs My Fingers

1413d ago ... I have dozens upon dozens of iPhone games, and virtually none of them are what I could honestly call “playable.” That won’t stop me from buying and enjoying them, they can still be fun, imaginative and beautiful. They’re also generally in the cheap-to-free price range, which helps make up for the fact that only a tiny minority of them appear to be compatible with human fingers, such as the stan...

GDC: Ear Force PX5 from Turtle Beach

1645d ago ... It's the early hours of GDC, Friday morning, and while most conference attendees are staring glassy-eyed into the tops of their Starbucks to-go cups, I'm entirely too keen to be out of bed and trying out the latest from Turtle Beach - the PX5. Of course, they did promise that the second half of the demo could be nap time. The wireless PX5 uses Bluetooth to pair with up to two devices simult...

3DS The good, and the unknown

1675d ago ... If you haven't read my blog on the NGP then make sure you do that as well, but let's talk about the 3DS. The 3DS is Nintendo's new Portable, and it's a DS with Gamecube graphics (maybe Wii) and 3D. With the announcement of the NGP and iPhone/tablet games getting 3rd party developer support like Epic and id Tech, the 3DS graphics don't seem as impressive as they were during their E3 announceme...

1682d ago ... Sony just announced the PSP2, current known as codename NGP (Next Gen Portable?). So if you missed it, then you suck at life.

I found this iphone game accidentally on Brucelee.com The website is designed by Bruce Lee’s daughter and there’s even an online store to purchase shirts and posters of the great martial artist. If you like street fighter, just give this a try. The gam...

Reasons why the PSP phone will be the PSP2

1754d ago ... Well there's been a lot of speculation around a PSP phone lately and honestly I don't see Sony releasing a PSP phone unless it's capable of playing both PSP and PSP2 games and here are the reasons why. First of all when I bought the PSP 1000 imported from Japan when I was 16/17 it was an amazing piece of hardware I couldn't believe a hand-held was capable of such amazing graphics. 6 yea...

What do you think of Sony's rumoured direction with the PSP2?

1775d ago ... Recently an article surfaced on a blog site (which was late with the news as I believe CVG and others had this news at E3! way before TGS) about supposed features of the PSP2. In a way the sources have been varied, the PSP2 clearly exists as a unit, but Sony haven't refined it enough to have an early showing (or hype) as Nintendo were able to do with the Nintendo 3DS. So it includes a HD...

To PSPhone or not to PSPhone (Sony versus Apple)

1830d ago ... It’s been five years since the release of the Sony PSP in North America. It'll be six years come March, 24 2011. There have been 3 hardware revisions since the release of the handheld and most of have been for the better. One can argue that the PSPGo is more about evolution than revision and its a different type of PSP for a portion of the hand-held consumer base that would like a download only...

Enough! with the multitasking copy/paste complaints

1873d ago ... These days I’m having a hard time figuring out why multitasking and copy and paste are being called core features, last time i checked core features are actually being used. Countless research has proven that most smartphone owners barley use copy/paste and multitasking, 90% of users only use 10% of feature and the stats for copy/paste, multitasking are even lower. Recently Windows Phone 7 h...

More Bars In More Places?

1874d ago ... As of late the Apple antennae gate has consumed most front pages of mobile websites. Release of a band for the iPhone 4 to soften the blow of Consumer Reports. Last a OS update that made your bars more "accurate". Apple changing bars saying it was not correct all along. Remember the marketing campaign "More bars in more places"? Isn't this a direct contradiction? Now we all know, or should know...

The saga continues, after apple announced yesterday at the emergency press conference that they will be giving away free bumpers for iPhone 4 customers having antenna issues, consumer reports have come out and is still refusing to give the Apple iPhone 4 its seal of approval stating that the free bumper giveaway is just a temporary fix.
