A Week with the HTC HD7: Xbox LIVE & Final Thoughts

A Week with the HTC HD7: Xbox LIVE & Final Thoughts

Right about this time is when I received the HTC HD7, unboxed it, and started playing with the Windows Phone 7-based device. I thought it was only fitting that I timed the final article in our week long look at the device around the same time I first got my hands on it. We started with the hardware, and then we took a look at the software. Lastly, we took a quick glance at the applications available for the device, both natively, carried-based, and third party. All in all, while there have been a few hiccups along the way, the HD7 has managed to not suck after a week of usage. But now, as we wrap it all up, we're looking at arguably the biggest feature of the device: Xbox LIVE integration. So, is it everything I thought it would be? Or is it just another feature that has a lot of potential, but isn't worth the time right now? Find out after the cut.

There are a few people within the video game development world that when they speak about a particular console, no matter who manufactures it, you listen.

The title is a First Person Shooter (FPS) title that's meant to show off the power of the iPad, but according to Carmack, they haven't even begun to touch on the power of the device.

Nintendo 3DS Seeing More Interest from Developers Than the Original DS, Hollywood Included

Nintendo 3DS Seeing More Interest from Developers Than the Original DS, Hollywood Included

As we get closer and closer to the launch of the 3DS, which is still a little ways off, it's no surprise to see Nintendo's own Satoru Iwata travelling more and more. While he may not be just going around to specifically sell the 3DS to developers, that's obviously at least one part of the trip. And it looks like it may be paying off, if this new report pans out. According to Iwata, developers are already clinging onto the 3DS, more so than they ever did with the DS, way back in the day.

Sony PSP2 Shown Off in Private Meeting, Coming Fall 2011

Sony PSP2 Shown Off in Private Meeting, Coming Fall 2011

For a short time, the rumors regarding the second version of the traditional PlayStation Portable were picking up speed, which would lead some to believe that a spy photo would inevitably break cover before too long. But, that still hasn't happened, and in fact the rumors and speculation started to quiet down. We've heard in the past that the device was already in the hands of developers, that the PSP2 would feature a touch-pad on the back of the mobile console, and that it would not only feature a camera on the back, but also one on the front. These new rumors actually enforce a few we've heard in the past, but it looks like Sony isn't in any rush to get the new handheld gaming device to the market.

Nintendo 3DS Priced So High Thanks to Media, Says Nintendo

Nintendo 3DS Priced So High Thanks to Media, Says Nintendo

When Nintendo showed off the 3DS, the handheld gaming console that would let you play 3D games without the need of glasses (and letting you turn it off whenever you want, too), there general consensus was a good one. It seemed, even if Nintendo didn't have an exact time frame for a launch date (at the time, which they've recently fixed), that the company had a winner on their hands. But, immediately following the announcement, and with Nintendo cleverly not including a price tag, the questions began circulating: how much would it cost. Well, it seems Nintendo didn't have a clear idea either, at the time, but thanks to the positive reports from this year's E3, and the subsequent "gushing" from the media regarding the device, Nintendo made up their mind. And it was a pricey decision.
