Activision Still Calls Console Hardware Prices 50°
July 2, 2008 // 6:11 pm - When the PlayStation 3 launched with a $600 price tag for the full 60GB version, many began to question if the price of video game hardware had suddenly gotten a bit out of control. Now, though, the $400 price tag for the PS3 and 360 is far more agreeable, and the Wii retails for an even cheaper price.

Recently, we've seen plenty of evidence to indicate that consumers are having less difficulty with the price of consoles (especially the PS3), but Activision still thinks it's all too expensive.

According to a Times Online interview with Activision CEO Bobby Kotick,...

Reeves: PSP Piracy Drives Hardware Sales, Sometimes 50°
June 19, 2008 // 5:01 pm - It's clear that piracy on the PSP is a problem. We know it, and so does Sony Computer Entertainment Europe head David Reeves. But it's not all bad, at least for Sony, as Reeves admits that piracy on the platform has driven hardware sales at times. On the whole, though, he isn't happy about it, obviously.

To quote: There is a piracy problem on PSP. We know about it, we know how it's done. It sometimes fuels the growth of hardware sales, but on balance we are not happy about it.

Following up to his previous statement, Reeves said that Sony will "unveil...

Nintendo Wii Hardware Architecture Diagram available! 50°
June 16, 2008 // 4:57 pm - Bushing has posted a Nintendo Wii Hardware Architecture Diagram recently.

To quote from his page linked above: Inspired by henke37's idea of making a diagram that shows how the different processors on the Wii relate to each other, I took a stab at it. I got a little carried away I guess.

I can't promise everything here is right - there are just too many things we don't know, and even some of the things we do know, we don't all agree on.

So, here's my first attempt at summing it all up...

The Truth About Xbox 360 Hardware Failures 200°
June 10, 2008 // 1:53 am - When Microsoft Corp. announced a mammoth global recall of its Xbox 360 a year ago, the software giant never disclosed the exact source of the game console's heat problem that led to the fiasco.

Now, in an unlikely venue at Design Automation Conference here, Bryan Lewis, research vice president and chief analyst at Gartner, disclosed that the problem started in a graphic chip. Lewis offered this offhand revelation while discussing the changing ASIC and ASSP landscape for his DAC audience.

The Xbox 360 recall a year ago happened because "Microsoft wanted to avoid...

Wii cracked with no Hardware Mods! 400°
May 28, 2008 // 12:17 am - Victories are inevitable in the technology war between platform holder and hacker/pirate. No matter how clever the former are the latter will always catch up.

This has always been so. Once a system is cracked the floodgates open as the word spreads on the interweb.

Now the Nintendo Wii is cracked, supposedly so it can become an open platform for homebrew. But what it means is that the pirates will exploit the same loophole so they can steal people's work instead of paying for it. So the Wii will become even less worthwhile for third party publishers.

"The...

Taylor: Hardware stalling Supreme Commander 2 50°
April 1, 2008 // 1:40 am - Gas Powered Games boss Chris Taylor let slip that PC hardware is currently stalling plans to deliver a full-blown sequel to his RTS Supreme Commander.

Speaking about the addition of new faction the Seraphim in Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance in an interview with PC Zone magazine, he explained, "... the only thing stopping me from doing it [adding new factions] on any sequel is memory".

"I've been told by my engineers that for Supreme Commander 2, I don't have enough memory in a PC with 4GB of RAM to have more factions".

"I'm like, 'That's insane!',...

Is Sixaxis a white elephant? 50°
February 27, 2008 // 11:56 pm - Just in case you're not familiar with the phrase, a White Elephant is something that is more trouble and more expensive than its worth and therefore a liability. Sound familiar? Welcome to our 15 month appraisal of Sixaxis - PlayStation 3's controversial motion-sensitive controller.

After nearly a year and a half, it's hard to use the defence that it's 'still new technology'. There's a wealth of evidence by which to judge its success and second-generation games should have learned from the mistakes of the launch titles.

But we have to say, it's not a very convincing case...
