John Fisher probably figured he'd gotten away with inappropriately touching that 10-year old girl. That is, until police showed him the photos his victim took of him mid-molestation on her Nintendo DS.
Sony announced their dual-screened S2 tablet today. It's not the only twin-screen tablet, but considering recent ill-conceived efforts from the likes of Acer, Toshiba and Kyocera, we're a little skeptical. With the S2, Sony's basically cut a 10-inch screen in half and stuck a hinge in between. How much of a benefit…
Nintendo has announced they're preparing for a little price cutting in advance of the 3DS launch. Starting September 12th, you'll be able to pick up a DSi for $129 (down from $149), and an XL for $169 (formerly $189). [CrunchGear]
Having an induction charger for your Wiimotes is a necessity. Having one that can charge your Wiimotes and two USB devices at the same time might be a little extravagant. Thankfully, at $35, the Konnet PowerV Duo a justifiable extravagance.
That's all I want, really. Just a cozy little spot somewhere underneath the D-pad. Or if all that construction turns you off, maybe you'd prefer a penthouse condo atop a PS3 highrise:
Oh, Thrustmaster. What heavenly delights have you brought us this time? Oh, the world's heaviest DS stylus? You shouldn't have. No, really. What's that? It's a projector as well?
"Get your greasy fingers off that DS Li—oh, you work here. Sorry about that. Please, continue with your McDonald's training."
The Wall Street Observer: "Microsoft is working on controller-free gaming technology and Sony is developing a motion controller...Are you worried?" Nintendo's Reggie: "We do not fear any competitor." Me: Well, that settles that. [WSJ]
Boy, that Satoru Iwata has been awfully mouthy recently. In addition to sounding off about the next DS having a motion sensor, he also told Asahi that it'll have a higher-resolution screen. A HIGH DEFINITION screen.
Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata was more mouthy than most presidents are about their upcoming, but unannounced, products, and said that the upcoming DS will have an accelerometer. Or, some kind of motion sensor.
I'm sure you have the same reaction I did, seeing Unreal Engine 3—yes, the same Unreal Engine 3 that powers games like BioShock, Gears of War and Mass Effect—running on the iPhone 3GS: WTFFFFFF.
The DSi's camera is probably the lowest-quality camera device you can buy today that can still counts as a camera. But, it's still a camera, and your kids might enjoy making their photos slightly more interesting than the default shots.
The DSi shatters and fragments, which is more effective at maiming and disabling a target. On the other hand, the N97 remains whole, for greater penetration through tough surfaces. Both, however, are fun to look at.
Nintendo is considering taking a page from the Kindle playbook and offering free 3G wireless web access with its next handheld console (next gen, not yet another DS version), according to company president Satoru Iwata.
No, it's not a new Wonderswan, it's the ODROID. This curious little gaming handheld has a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, Android 1.5 OS, 512MB of RAM, and the same 833MHz Samsung CPU as the iPhone 3GS.
