Resistance 2 Private BETA is Now Live!

Resistance 2 Private BETA is Now Live! 200°
342w ago - The Resistance 2 private BETA is now live. In a surprise move, Insomniac Games sent out invites via electronic mail to a very limited number of PlayStation 3 owners today.

Enter their site (linked above) by putting in your date of birth and enter your PSN ID into the "BETA Info" section. You may get lucky and find out that you're approved early to start the Private BETA now. If you're in, you can go ahead and download the BETA client from the PlayStation Store now.

Otherwise keep checking back. You can get a guaranteed spot into the Public BETA next month by subscribing to a year's subscription to QORE, or by pre-ordering the game. Pre-order bonus codes will be given out at a later date.

And a fun fact: If you've got a friend playing the R2 Private BETA, they'll show up on your friends list as playing "Girl With a Stick," an old Insomniac Games project that was canned before they moved on to Ratchet & Clank.

Nvidia Chipsets are now History!

Nvidia Chipsets are now History! 50°
343w ago - There are a ton of 'rumors' floating around about Nvidia giving up the ghost on its ailing chipset division. Nvidia is desperately trying to deny it, but don't believe the spin, the division is deader than an Nvidia mobile GPU.

Just over a week ago, Nvidia's maximum leader, Jen-Hsun Huang, held a meeting with Taiwanese mobo partners. He directly asked them if there was a reason why Nvidia should stay in the chipset business. You could hear the crickets chirp.

In mainland China. No one came up with a reason, so the division was officially killed, and the teams will be rolled into GPU projects.

Nvidia PR is having the proverbial hissy-fit, but ignore it, they do that a lot. The INQUIRER has talked to people who were at the meeting, and they confirmed the reports, and are dead convnced that Nvidia chipsets are a thing of the past.

This is not to say that there will be no new chipsets from today. Things currently done or almost done will be out, but new designs won't be started, and early-stage projects are not likely to continue. Deep breaths people, projects on the near term horizon are safe, or at least safe from that paticular axe.

This mercy killing was strongly hinted at during Cebit in March, and was likely a done deal back then. If you look at the abysmal performance...
