Console Takeover: Is PC Gaming Dead? 400°
September 7, 2008 // 1:27 am - Facing tough competition from a red-hot console market, developers are looking online in a bid to keep computer-based gaming alive.

There was a time when personal computers were the tools of choice for hard-core gamers. But four years ago, on the brink of the release of the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360, analysts were proclaiming the death of PC gaming.

These new consoles - well, Sony's PS3 and Microsoft's Xbox - were more powerful than the computers at the time, and were integrating with home entertainment systems to provide high definition experiences beyond just...

PS2: The Console that Will Not Die; SCPH-90000 on the way 550°
August 28, 2008 // 9:48 pm - The PlayStation 2 debuted in 2000, March in Japan, October in the US, and November worldwide. The system sported a DVD drive, a first for game consoles, and may have been the key to quick adaptation of the new video format.

Sporting backwards compatibility with the first PlayStation, the system debuted with a gigantic library. Games made specifically for the PS2 have continued to debut since, even continuing after the release of the current generation of systems, including the PS3 from Sony.

Now, two years after the PS3's debut, Sony is releasing yet another revision...

Acer debuts their new 'console' 100°
August 21, 2008 // 9:38 pm - Those of you who frequent the rumor mill will remember reports earlier in the year that PC hardware specialists Acer were going to release a console to compete with the likes of the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Of course it all turned out to be a load of horse shit, but even this outlandish rumour had an element of truth to it. Acer were working on a game specific machine, although it is actually a highly specialized PC and God damn it's a sexy looking thing!

In Sydney this week, we were given a chance to rub its sunset orange Lamborghini-inspired exterior, poke about in its innards...

Home Access is based on Console Region, not PSN Account 50°
August 15, 2008 // 5:44 pm - PS3Fanboy writes: With the release of the new Home beta, we now have a much clearer idea of how these region restrictions, that we discovered at E3, are being implemented. It seems that the client reacts to your console's native region, locking you out of any Home servers that don't match it. That means that if you're a UK gamer who imported from the US, you'll be spending all of your time with Americans inside Home. If you imported from Japan ... well, you can guess where that's headed.

What we find bizarre is that it's such a strict lock-out, and that you're not given any degree...

Inside a 60 gig Xbox 360 Console! 50°
August 7, 2008 // 1:25 am - Key points from Ben Heck: Well of course I couldn't resist grabbing one of these, and since I need parts anyway for an upcoming contest, why not?

"60 GIGA PRO-GEAR SPEC" would be a lot catchier.

The big question of course is whether or not this unit has the new 65nm GPU... check out the photos (linked above) to see!

The box. They stuck on a sticker, but the box print has 60 on it as well. I would have put an exclamation point after "hard drive!" but that's just me...

FYI this unit was built on 6-20-08 and is lot # 825.

Wii Backups on Unmodded Console; Custom Wii Firmware too?! 100°
July 17, 2008 // 5:46 pm - Bushing wrote an open letter to Nintendo on his site (linked above) stating: As part of our efforts to understand how the Wii works, we believe we have found a security issue that could allow pirated Wii games to be played on an unmodified Wii console.

I would like to speak to an engineer about this – please have one contact me at bushing (at)
