Nintendo – Back in action!
Nintendo has launched its newest and next-gen console the Nintendo Wii U over the weekend with the 8Gb and 32Gb versions.
Released this past Sunday with numerous launch titles including New Super Mario U and ZombieU among others.
The console comes with a hand-held gamepad featuring a very nice 16:9 touchscreen. The pro controller and older Wii remotes are usable as well.
It is expected to display current graphics, which would bring Nintendo into the world of 1080p hd for the first time. A nice plus I must say!
It will feature a AMD Radeon based High Def GPU, with a IBM Power-based multi-core microprocessor.
*Audio Output: AV Multi Out connector. Six-channel PCM linear output through HDMI.
*Video Output: 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i, including a HDMI output, s-video and component as well as composite.
*Backward compatible with Wii games and accessories.
*Memory: Expandable using an SD memory card or external usb hard drive.
Prices start right at $299 USD!
The time is nearing for the next generation of consoles to be hitting shelves. We have heard a lot of chit-chat lately about one console having a development kit leak out onto the internet. The console I’m speaking of is the Xbox 720 from Microsoft. Pictures appeared on a web forum last month of a dev kit for the 720, them pictures have now been confirmed to be real after speculation of well in this case gaming fraud! As we do take this kind of news seriously.
Any-who to get started with things, the dev kit is powered by an intel processor while running a NVIDIA graphics card. It is supposedly running a 8-core cpu. Still getting dual gpu’s? we’ll just have to wait and see. Also expect blu-ray. I do believe this console will be releasing Holiday season 2013!
Not much of an update as time is scarce lately but for all the gamers out there, here you go!
Made in the U.S.A.!
Google’s new social streaming device is used to stream music and video to your television, computer or android mobile device.
While the streaming may be very neat, it also delivers a nice light show. Not sure what I’m talking about? check
out the picture above and you will notice a variation of colors circling the ball-shaped gadget.
Just hook the device up to your television and a secure internet connection and once you have downloaded
the Google Nexus Q app from the Google Play store, you are ready to go! Cloud streaming is also a plus!
The device is wireless with a 802.11 b/g/n WiFi capability while bringing along Bluetooth and NFC.
It features 1GB LPDDR RAM and 16GB NAND flash memory. Sound-wise the little guy pushes out 25W,
with 12.5 watt per channel. It also features something I would not expect in such an odd object and that is
a OMAP4460 CPU (dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU and SGX540 graphics core) something I wouldn’t expect
in such an odd object.
This seems like it will be a nice little device to have in the house for them long boring days or maybe if you
and a few friends want to just kick back and relax to a few tunes or catch up on your favorite youtube channel,
but will this odd bowling ball-shaped streaming device full of life last? or will ti die out just like the others ?
