It’s fun watching people wearing an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive run into walls, trip over furniture, or smash into other obstacles while playing a VR game. But it’s not as fun when you’re the one accidentally breaking your own TV, so Nyko has come up with a solution that makes it safer to explore a VR world while you’re…
Turtle Beach’s Hypersound Glass speakers use a sheet of transparent glass to drive sound in a highly focused beam directly in front of them while being inaudible outside the beam’s range. Welcome to never knowing why you’re hearing ads all the time—our Blade Runner hell future has arrived.
Oculus has a incredible product: a headset that can make you feel like you’re in another world. With its upcoming motion controllers, Oculus Touch, you can even reach out and grab virtual objects. But a competing headset, the HTC Vive, will let you walk around in VR too—and it’ll ship this year, before Oculus can make…
It wasn’t that the zombies were too realistic. I wasn’t afraid for my life or anything silly like that. No, when I tried The Walking Dead in VR, what I chiefly saw was this: the disturbing possibility that virtual reality might get written off as a fad.
I sit down in the dilapidated wooden chair, and put on the headset. It’s the twelfth time this week. I’ve gotten really used to Sony’s Project Morpheus, and I love the way it feels. I pretty much just press a button to pull the display closer to my face, and boom—I’m in another world. I just wish there were more…
Yep, it’s creepy.
It’s a conversation anybody who grew up in the 90s has had at least a dozen times: “Remember when MTV actually played music videos?” Yes, yes—we all do. Those times are over. Well, those times were over: Activision is about to change everything. It’s launching Guitar Hero TV: a “channel” where you can not only watch…
When we made the jump from the last generation of home consoles to the current generation, there was one thing missing: backwards compatibility. For Xbox One owners, that’s about to change—Microsoft just announced that Xbox 360 games will be playable on the new console this holiday season.
When Sony announced its intentions to take Oculus Rift head-on, we were excited. The Rift (rightly) gets all of the attention and praise for its VR prowess, but a little competition would be good for the emerging technology. Today at E3 in Los Angeles we finally got to try Project Morpheus for ourselves. And man, it's…
Last night, Sony simulcast its E3 press conference to dozens of movie theaters across the United States, including the Regal Trussville Stadium 16, a Big Lots-facing megaplex just off of County Highway 10. That's where I watched it, along with a few dozen PlayStation faithful. Disclaimer: I am not a gamer.
Anyone who tries to play PC games on their TV inevitably runs into the same problem: What do you do with that damn keyboard and mouse? Roccat has a clever if not super elegant solution. Just put an entire desk-top on your lap.
Playstation Now, the service that will let you stream old Playstation games on your new Playstation (and pretty damn well) will be going into open beta on July 31st. It'll come to PS4 first, but later PS3, Vita, and select Sony smart TVs (Dual Shock 3 controller required).
Even while you can only see a few glimpses of the in-game engine of Star Wars Battlefront, the new game by Swedish studio DICE seems impossibly good. They say they are making the game that, as Star Wars fans, they always wanted to play. I think they may succeed.
Conan O'Brien went to E3—the games industry's yearly trade show—to discover the newest game consoles, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. But the most important discovery was the reason why Nintendo's Mario has a mustache as told by his creator, the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto. Watch the second video here.
E3 is the game industry's biggest event, showcasing the new games and consoles. It also showcases the creepy sexism that permeates this multi-billion dollar business, according to Kotaku editor Tina Amini's own experiences—from a security guard who groped a female journalist to a male journalists who slipped his…
E3 is over, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. An internal, seemingly official Microsoft PR document about the Xbox One just leaked out, but it's not full of horrible secrets, or general shadiness. Nope, it's actually full of good news that Microsoft just didn't bother to stress.
It's throwdown time. We've finally got prices on both of this generation's flagship consoles and PS4 is coming in low at $400, undercutting the Xbox One by a cool $100. The console war is on.
It seems that everything is aligning for the launch of the next generation Xbox at E3 2013. We knew that the rumors are piling on. Then someone told us that the Xbox buildings at Microsoft's campus are on lock down. And now we know that Xboxmeister Major Nelson is very excited about E3.
