Blu-ray sales tank for good reasons 100°
May 5, 2008 // 11:57 pm - Blu-ray player sales are sucking wind as well they should. According to Cnet, sales of the DRM infected format players are dropping like rocks.

The not so bright people out there had expected sales to skyrocket once the format war was done, but it didn't. They thought was people would ignore the massive defects of Blu-ray and buy like the dumb sheep that they are, handcuffing themselves to the Sony bank account.

Surprise, it didn't happen. US consumers are still dumb sheep, but this time they are realizing what is being done to them and they aren't biting. Sony's hope...

More RV770 and RV770X2 Chip details! 50°
May 5, 2008 // 11:52 pm - ATI said a few things about its new upcoming RV770 chips, and as we've said before you can expect RV770PRO with DDR3, RV770XT with DDR5 support and the top end, R700 aka (RV770X2) with two RV770XT chips in a dual-card configuration.

The new GPUs are 55nm and they are actually an architecture shrink chip with minor architectural changes. Of course, just as RV670, they do support DirectX 10.1 and at the same time, they will bring some significant performance improvements compared to the previous RV670 generation.

The new RV770 chip will also have great improvements in power...

XBox 360 overhaul to come in August 50°
May 5, 2008 // 11:46 pm - According to EDN newspaper in China, Pegatron Technology (offspring of Asustek, in case you're wondering), has managed to grab the highly-denied "Blu-Ray for Xbox360" deal of the year.

We imagine Microsoft denied the existence of such unit, not to shield its upcoming launch from the competition's prying marketeers, but rather because its staff were responding in default "mirror" mode whereby hacks that asked the Vole if they had plans for a BD add-on, they received a 100% flat/honest "No". True. All things considered, it won't be an add-on.

The newspaper adds...

Microsoft has no plans for Xbox 360 Blu-ray drive 50°
May 5, 2008 // 11:40 pm - The company says it will not be using Sony technology in its "game console." To quote:

"As we have stated, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-ray drive for Xbox 360," said a Microsoft official in an email to GamePro on Monday.

"Games are what drive consumers to purchase game consoles, and we remain focused on providing the largest library of blockbuster games available."

The statement comes amid persistent reports that Microsoft will release a Blu-ray drive for Xbox 360 given the discontinuation of the console's now defunct HD DVD drive.

Best days of PC gaming coming soon 50°
May 4, 2008 // 1:55 pm - Mark these words, computer graphics processors in the not too distant horizon are poised to make a big leap in technology, much more than we've grown used to seeing over the last several years.

Oh yes, good days are ahead for PC gamers. Perhaps the leap will be enough to put some distance between PC and console games so that it'll actually worthwhile again to purchase the PC version instead for those who own both.

Over the last month, tensions between NVIDIA and Intel have been steadily escalating as verbal mortal shells have been lobbed back and forth between the two...

Square-Enix Attending E3 2008 - Will FFXIII as well? 50°
May 3, 2008 // 7:45 pm - This years list of developers attending E3 in July has been released. It isn't much of a shock that Square-Enix will be attending as they do every year.

What will be interesting to see is if they still believe that E3's downsizing gives them a good excuse to only show a small exhibition like last year, where we got almost no information concerning Final Fantasy XIII or any of the other Fabula Nova Crystallis titles.

The last time Final Fantasy XIII was shown outside of Japan was when it was revealed to the world at E3 2006 and ever since then it's been shown in private...

Five Reasons They Hate GTA IV 50°
May 3, 2008 // 3:06 pm - With the Byron Report still in mainstream newspapers' minds, it's inevitable that crosshairs are going to be targeted on Rockstar's latest GTA sequel eventually... with the aim being controversy.

It's up for debate whether it'd be anywhere near as good without the violence, sexual inuendo or ability to rundown a park full of pedestrians (we know which side we'd take). But here's the targets critics are going to gun for anyway...

Ladies of the night
Goes without saying this one; the digital prossies in Rockstar's Euphoria sandbox are even more realistic and full-on...

CNN goes MENTAL over GTA IV 550°
May 3, 2008 // 2:11 pm - And so it begins: CNN reporter Glenn Beck has gone proper off on one, warning parents on television of the new 'murder celebrator' Grand Theft Auto IV, which he says is "training our kids to be killers". Ban this sick filth!

"Whatever happened to Pong?!" asks a furious Beck, going into a frenzied rant we thought only existed in GTA's own media-mocking radio shows.

"Here's what you need to know tonight; in Grand Theft Auto your son, husband or boyfriend can hire a prostitute, have sex with her and then beat her to death with a baseball bat.

"When a police...
