The 10 Video Formats HD DVD Will Meet in Heaven 50°
March 21, 2008 // 11:23 pm - This year is shaping up to be a year of technology battles-Microsoft vs. Google, iPhone vs. Android-but just last month, we saw the end to a momentous tech showdown. On Feb. 19, the high-definition disc format war was finally over. And when the dust settled, Toshiba's HD DVD technology lay beaten on the ground-left for dead by its former friends (Warner Brothers, Amazon, Best Buy) in favor of Sony's Blu-ray format.

HD DVD, someone had to go. Sure, your picture quality was every bit as stunning as Blu-ray's, your price point was mildly more tolerable and your multimedia functionality...

Happy Birthday PS3! The Ten Best Games - Part One! 250°
March 21, 2008 // 11:01 pm - It's Bank Holiday weekend, but no rest for the wicked. Especially when PlayStation 3 is celebrating its first birthday. Yep, Sony's sleek stunner of a console is one on Sunday, and we thought we'd put together a top ten list of the very best games you can buy.

We've aimed for a good mix of retail titles and some cult PSN hits, and the vast majority of games on this rundown are PS3 exclusive - but there's a very good reason for that. For one, we wanted to celebrate the titles that make PS3 unique, and the best way to do that is to pick games which aren't available elsewhere. Secondly,...

Rumor: Halo 3 to get Lockout remake? 200°
March 21, 2008 // 10:46 pm - First off, remember this story is strictly in the realm of rumors and loose talk. But with the latest Bungie news update came a hint that we would see more classic remakes coming soon.

And a further hint was given when a poster on posted a scan of a magazine cover and promptly had his post deleted. Whether or not the above concept art is actually that for a Lockout-remake map in Halo 3 isn't clear, and this is in no way a confirmation of anything.

Having a version of Sidewinder in the next update, it seems unlikely that there would be a second remake in the...

HD DVD's loss means Microsoft is going Blu-ray for 360? 50°
March 21, 2008 // 10:45 pm - Guess again! Company executives may have already shot the notion down, but there's more to the story. With HD DVD, Microsoft had the opportunity to inject its own technology into the emerging high-definition video market. But now that the HD disc war is over, the company still has a viable group of HD video assets, including HDi and Xbox Live Marketplace.

If you take a close look at these assets, and consider their potential, it's clear why Microsoft is snubbing Blu-ray for the Xbox: The company is gearing up for another HD video assault.

First, a little backstory....

March 21, 2008 // 10:43 pm - Finding space to stash all of your multimedia has become an increasingly frustrating challenge.

From high-definition videos to countless music files, the hard drive on your laptop is literally bursting at the seams. Sony is coming to the rescue with a new hybrid magnet/laser system for hard drives, effectively increasing capacity five-fold. That's right, on the same-sized platter as you have right now, you can enjoy up to five times the memory.

This new method of writing information is said to be even viable for notebook computers. Current hard drives rely solely on magnetics,...

GT Prologue Pre-orders Reach One Million 200°
March 14, 2008 // 10:20 pm - While crashing and doing donuts mid circuit the other day in GT Prologue I had a chat with SCEE NZ's Marketing Manager Dave Hine and Paul Gunn (PR Extraordinaire) about the sales figures for GT Prologue and whether they thought the online would outsell the hard copy on Blu Disc.

They expressed their surprise at the popularity of War Hawk as down-loadable software and said that they anticipated GT to receive an even warmer welcome when it comes out later this month.

Also mentioned in the conversation was that the pre-order figures for the SCEE regions...
