Mad Catz, a gaming accessories developer, has entered into a licensing agreement with Microsoft to produce a range of co-branded, licensed headphones for the Xbox 360. These will include a wireless headset with Dolby 5.1 surround sound. The headset will be produced under the company's Tritton brand.
It tells of a story of Duke Nukem in the past where he destroyed an invasion of aliens on the planet earth. He died, or at least disappeared without a trace, but now the aliens are back, and of course, there's more of them, and they're much more gigantic. All seems hopeless until they begin to kill... the strippers. Duke Nukem, even though he's been in hiding or dead this whole invasion cannot stand for this, thus, he is reborn in Duke Nukem Forever! All the alien slaughtering and inappropriate nude body touching, hookers, and swearing you remember from the original, and it's still slated for May 3, 2011, as confirmed by this official trailer.
We're not sure about the Xbox 360 version yet, and it doesn't appear that the PC version will come with any extra functionality to it, but the Playstation 3 version of one of the most cult-classic-great games we've ever played will be coming with both Mac and PC versions attached. This PS3 version of the game comes with full Steam integration which will allow you to continue the game wherever you left of no matter which platform you decide to bring your Portal 2 Blu-Ray disk to.
Konami has confirmed with Eurogamer today the release dates of the highly anticipated return of the classic arcade game, this time in home-version form. For the Xbox 360 version, an exclusive release date of December 15th, that's next Wednesday! Then for the Playstation 3 version, TWO MONTHS AFTER. What in the world? That is just crazy talk. That puts it in February of 2011, prices on either version are not yet confirmed. Backbone Entertainment studio is leading the production of this game, so it should run fabulously.
A couple weeks back I mentioned that Microsoft had sold a million of the new Kinect devices in the first ten days it was on the market. Microsoft has now announced the numbers for sales of Kinect modules the first 25 days it has been on the market and sales have not slowed.
Whether or not you own a NintendoWii, you've probably seen the commercials. Or know someone who owns one, and have experienced the gameplay for yourself. With that in mind, we all know that Nintendo intended for people to get off the couch and actually interact with their games on a whole "new" level. Sure, there's some commercials out there that show plenty of folks sitting on their couch, tilting their Wii remotes all over the place, but with accessories like Wii Fit and what not, we all know where Nintendo was going with this. (And subsequently, yes, Sony's Move is positioned in much the same way.) But, what about Microsoft's Kinect?
Having multiple versions of a console to choose from isn't new for console manufacturers. As it stands, there's plenty of options out there for anyone to choose their favorite model, all depending on what it is they're looking for, or what they need at any given time. No hard drive, bigger hard drive, or a bundle game -- it all depends on what you want. And, sure enough, while a $199 New Xbox 360 was rumored after its official announcement, it looks like Microsoft has gone ahead and confirmed its future existence.
It's been awhile, hasn't it? Yes, yes, it has. We know. There's been a few changes, some systematic alterations that had to take place over the last few weeks, but here we are. Tonight, on a Monday, smack-dab in the middle of June. Welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. We're happy you could find your way back. Tonight, in the Best of R3 Media, we've got exclusive images of the Samsung Galaxy S Pro, a run-down of where to pre-order your iPhone 4, and a new release from Pantech. In the Dredge 'Net, we've got rumors that Apple's releasing a new app for iOS, we get to see the first bionic iPad, and the newly announced Xbox 360 goes up for pre-order.
One pin after another. Microsoft just announced not only the Kinect, but the new, $300 Xbox 360 Slim, and now we've got word that GameStop's already got the Kinect up for pre-order. And yes, the price is right there, plain as day, for everyone to see: $149.99.
