Latest Gaming News!

| No comment
Hohoho... Heading macam blog gaming 24/7 plak. Hehehehe... Tak per, tunggu aku bukak blog pasal gaming lepas nih. Boleh aku boh heading yang cenggitu.

Sebenarnya bukan apa pun. Aku saja jer tulis heading tu sebab aku nak bagitau latest gaming news yang telah berjaya menarik perhatian aku sejak aku menerima feeds dari site gaming yang dah lama aku langgan. Panjang jugak la article dia sampai sanggup aku baca sampai habis. So, malas nak tulis pepanjang, korang baca la... Aku tampal jer kat sini...

New memstick from SanDisk and Sony: 2TB of storage incoming

Like whoa: two terrabytes of data storage?! What the hell are you gonna do with all that? Read 'em and weep 'em buckoes. Sony and SanDisk have announced their joint development project which will expand memory stick formats to proportions yet unheard of.

The first one is a new line for the Memory Stick PRO, tentatively dubbed as the "Expanded format for Memory Stick PRO". This new line includes expanded formats for the entire Memory Stick PRO series, namely PRO, PRO HG, and Micro (M2).

Compared to the current gen of PRO memsticks that can go up to 32GB, this new format will be able to achieve up to 2TB of data storage (damn, that's even higher than what I got on my old, clunky PowerBook!).

Other than the increased storage capacity, everything will pretty much remain the same: same dimensions, same number of pins, same transfer speeds. The new line will also still be supporting MagicGate and Access Control Function.

Now on top of the expanded Memory Stick PRO line, Sony and SanDisk are also set to deliver an entirely new format, one called the Memory Stick HG Micro. It's based on the current M2 format, but will be improved to allow transfer speeds of up to 60MB/s.

The press release didn't include any release dates for the new formats, however, development for these memsticks are already set to start this year.

Huhuhu... With just inside a memory stick? 2 Terabytes? You gotta be kidding me! Aku punya HDD yang aku baru beli tu pun baru 320 Gigabytes. Ni dalam memory stick? Aiyo!!! Mesti harga dia riban² nyer! Hehehehe... Mampus nak membeli! Yang 8 Gigabytes pun dah nak dekat RM500, inikan pulak 2 Terabytes... Memacam dunia sekarang nih.

Sony says bring it on: calls Microsoft and Nintendo add-on peddlers

Biting remarks thrown between Sony and Microsoft are normal (even expected), but more often than not, these are offhand remarks said in interviews.

This time though, Sony's making it personal. In an official press release, Sony claws at both Microsoft and Nintendo, calling out their consoles as peddling add-ons in an effort to keep up with the PS3. The press release, which was headlined "Keeping Gaming and Entertainment Simple," read:

The Xbox 360 requires additional money, multiple upgrades and additional external devices, putting a burden on the wallet and adds clutter to the entertainment center.

And the Wii s lack of enhanced features comes at the expense of a comprehensive entertainment solution.

So as PS3 continues to evolve without the need for additional parts or expenses, expect the competition to continue peddling add-ons in an effort to keep up with the Jones

(In case you were wondering, no, I'm not the one who put that part of the PR in bold. That was pure Sony.)

The PR also gave a break down of what the PlayStation 3's has straight out of the box, emphasizing "huge hard drives," free online gaming, and "Ten years of value with a future-proof system via firmware updates that offer new services and features. They also gave a chart, giving a blow by blow against the competition:

A very aggressive strategy, one they no doubt put in action for CES 2009, but I doubt it'll work. One of the strengths of the Xbox 360 is specifically because of its optional add-ons. People can choose whether or not to buy the parts they want. With people hanging on to their wallets with a death grip, this is a major plus for people in the market for a console.

As for the Wii, well, people buy it expecting a fun-for-the-family console, not an all-in-one entertainment device, so they get what they pay for.

Hmmmm... Nak kata aku ni PS3 fanboys, tak jugak, tapi rasa² macam ada! Tapi aku suka gak dengan konsol yang lain terutamanya Wii. Tapi kebanyakan game² Wii macam bebudak jer. Tu yang malas tuh. So, bila Sony dah buat kenyataan cenggitu, terasa berbaloi jugak la aku membeli PS3 sejak dari awal. Tak perlu nak upgrade² konsol for better performance. Cuma kena beli aksesori jer! Ni bila konsol pun dah nak kena upgrade, dah jadik macam PC laks! Hehehehe...

CES 2009: Sony previews PS3 stereoscopic 3D support

Do not adjust your monitor. That picture's supposed to look like that. That's a sample of Sony's stereoscopic 3D technology that they showed off over at CES 2009. You'll need a dorky pair of glasses to view it correctly. How dorky, exactly? Well...

He looks a bit like Elliott Gould. At least the lenses aren't in bright blue and red. The tech was demonstrated with the PlayStation 3's WipEout HD, running in true 3D. Don't get too excited though. Although Blitz Games said last month that Sony "fully intends" to support stereoscopic 3D gaming, the Sony rep at CES wasn't so quick to give promises:

Don't get caught up with specs. We're not going to talk about specifications. This is just a look at what 3D could look like if Sony decided to move in this direction.

That said, he didn't offer any other details about the tech, but we can expect more details soon - CES is far from over. It'll be amazing if studios start developing games for the PS3 with this tech in mind though.

3D has now embark a new landmark in gaming. Barulah 3D betul. Nampak memenda kat dalam tibi tu macam terkeluar jer. Ha! Lepas ni kita tunggu plak hologram pulak untuk gaming. Biar lagik best!

p/s: Itu jer news terkini. Nanti kalo ada lagik yang menarik perhatian aku, aku buboh lagik!
