Next-Gen Gaming Consoles the Home Entertainment Gateway

Next-Gen Gaming Consoles the Home Entertainment Gateway

People interested in technology and home entertainment like to get their hands on the latest, greatest products. Before, it was all about having the top of the line DVD player, receiver and speaker system. And though those things still hold serious importance, there’s one product type that seems destined to swoop in on the home entertainment market. I’m talking about next-gen gaming consoles, the XBox 360 and PS3, in particular.

Rumor – Rock Band may not hit most European consoles until September

Rumor – Rock Band may not hit most European consoles until September

There are some things that just make a person feel very patriotic. One of the big reasons why I love the US is because we don't get screwed on release dates like some countries. Sure, Japan got Super Smash Bros. Brawl a month before we did, big deal. That's nothing to the wait Europe has for most titles. If rumors are to be believed, some European rockers may have to wait until September before getting their Rock Band on.

Heelys Xbox 360 Shoe – Why shoes and game consoles shouldn’t breed

Heelys Xbox 360 Shoe – Why shoes and game consoles shouldn’t breed

I'm the proud owner of an Xbox 360, however, I wouldn't ever consider myself to be a fanboy. I also own a PS2 and a Gamecube which still see action. There are plenty of dedicated fanboys out there, and this shoe is for them.

Heelys has created a new shoe specifically for hardcore Xbox 360 gamers. It really looks like someone dropped a 360 controller onto the conveyor belt and some machine smashed it into the sole of the shoe.

Next-Gen Consoles Become Museum Exhibit

Next-Gen Consoles Become Museum Exhibit

If you're one of the millions of people left out in the cold (literally) trying to obtain a next-generation gaming console last week, and you don't know any friends who had better luck, then the United Kingdom has your back. While the Wii isn't launching over in England for another two weeks (followed by a four-month wait for the PlayStation 3 in March), the Science Museum in London is hosting its Game On exhibition, highlighting games from the PDP-10 era to today's ultra-modern technology. Over 120 games will be available for people to play, so if you're still hankering for that Virtua Fighter fight or to see how weird the original Street Fighter was, head on over, since the exhibit will be running until the end of February. And if you live in the UK, the exhibit ends right before the PS3 comes out. Try before you buy?

Nintendo: 4 Million Wii Consoles in 2006

Nintendo: 4 Million Wii Consoles in 2006

Well, if you've had a yearning to buy a Wii but haven't gotten around to getting your pre-order(s) in, have no fear. Nintendo has confirmed that 4 million Wii consoles should ship between launch and the end of December, meaning the likelihood of you being able to walk into your local Wal-Mart and grabbing a machine off the shelf is pretty good. This means that Nintendo is also on-track to deliver its previously-promised goal of six million consoles by the end of their fiscal year (March 31, 2007) and they've even gone so far as to create a delivery system in which (they hope) none of the major markets will have to suffer shortages for long. So, get ready world; the Wii is coming.
