In a story that will make
Adam cry, it appears that Warner Bros. is considering taking a side in the HD Wars. Up until now, they have released movies on both platforms, but that gets expensive, and they need to go one way or another. After looking at their own sales for each format, plus looking at the overall sales, it appears that we will be hearing an announcement soon saying that Warner will be losing the HD-DVD format in favor of blu-ray.
Since the PS3 has had all kinds of problems gaining market share, Sony is going to try and hit the Wii where it hurts (the wallet) with a new PS2. The new white console will ship with Singstar and microphones, as an attempt to hone in on the Wii's family-style gameplay attraction. Add tot hat, the whole thing is only $150. Good luck, Sony.
Do you play
TF2 on the 360? Probably not. The lag has been so bad that most players have given up. Well, fortunately, the patch released last week seems to have fixed the problem. Here's the rundown of the patch:
Improved game performance Reduced bandwidth usage Server search results based on conditions Better game rankings Storage issue on large hard drives
Here's the story so far:
1 - Rockstar wanted a poster removed from a show floor advertising the
Simpsons level Grand Theft Scratchy.
The level was renamed to Mob Rules to appease Rockstar
Simpsons developers have lashed out at their new friends at Rockstar saying, "The people who make Grand Theft Auto spazzed out like little babies."
We here at PLuGHiTz Technologies hope that the next step will be a whiny rap song from either side. Boys, BRING IT ON!
We've said many times that the PS3 is an amazing console, they just haven't really done much of anything to make it something we want to buy. Well, it is time for that to change, or so it seems. They have recently brought out the $399 console, bringing it more in line with the 360, especially since you get
5 free blu-ray movies for buying the console.
Now, we've entered November, an essential month for gaming, and the PS3 has a pretty incredible lineup. Check out the link for all the games coming this month!
As part of a lawsuit filed in California, of course, Sprint Nextel will start allowing their stores to unlock handsets to be used on other compatible services (such as Verizon Wireless and Alltel). Also, they will unlock other phones for use on the Sprint CDMA network.
Two things to remember here:
This ruling will not affect Nextel handsets, since Nextel is the only AMPS network still running in the US. When moving a handset, especially a CDMA handset, from one network to another, features do not work. Text, pictures, video, internet, etc are all unique to the carrier, so the only likely feature that will work on an unlocked handset is voice.
