Razer Chimaera Headset Bumps Xbox and PC Games in 5.1 Surround Sound, Sans Wires
16 The less cords the better, I say, and if your Xbox controller is already wireless why deal with a headset that keeps you tethered to it? That's like one of those chains that goes from your lip piercing to your nipple piercing. Anywho, Razer's new Chimaera headset, which works with both the Xbox 360 and PC, pumps out Dolby 5.1 surround sound and wi
GAEMS Xbox 360 traveling case gets sleek redesign, still won't help you spell correctly
The last rendition we saw of the GAEMS console-carrying case looked more like a giant lunch box than a solution to your portable gaming needs. If you're still interested in bringing your Xbox 360 on the road, the company has redesigned the case and it now supports the fat and slim versions of the 360 and even the PS3-skinny. What's new in this compact carrying case is the fact there's actually ro
Videogame hardware and software sales declining, time to roll out some new consoles?
There was a time when you couldn't go three years without having to shell out $300 for the latest and greatest videogame console, something with mind-blowing graphics and slight refreshes of the games you'd already bought twice before. Those days are past, with the Xbox 360 over five years old and the PlayStation 3 four, yet neither having any replacements in the wings. Perhaps this is partly why
Developer gets Kinect working on Android, rains on Microsoft's WP7 parade
2 Windows Phone 7 is getting a lot of extensions this year and, while we wouldn't say Kinect interoperability is anywhere near as important as third-party multitasking, it could be fun. Still, we haven't seen proper Kinect interop, the sort that would see you controlling WP7 games with a Kinect -- the sort that is apparently possible on Android. YouTuber HirotakaSter has managed to hook a Kinect up

Adam West could read your Facebook status, live.The idea of “sitting around the campfire” persists into the modern age.

Circboard brings fast typing to console controllers
4 Entering any kind of text using a console gamepad is an exercise in frustration. Certain games have offered innovative solutions, like Beyond Good and Evil's infinitely spiraling letters, but none quite as simple as Circboard. It basically splits the keyboard into bunches, with the left analog stick on an Xbox 360 controller selecting a group of letters and then the right stick or buttons grabbin

Luxury game controller is hand assembled in Paris, overkill everywhere else
Feeling ostentatious, are we? This luxury game controller (yes, you read that right) is hand assembled in a Parisian workshop and features a lacquered oak wood joystick, ostrich leather covering, and electronics courtesy of Sanwa. We have no idea how much this will cost (and we're quite frankly afraid to ask) although we should know when this becomes available on the 18th of this month. Compatibl
Android Honeycomb / Motorola Xoom hands-ons: widgets, Grocery IQ, and Monster Madness
Fully-functional Xooms with complete (or seemingly complete) builds of Honeycomb are out in force here at Google's event in Mountain View today, and a bunch of partners are hanging out to demonstrate the tablet apps they've been working on. We checked out both Monster Madness -- a game that's been on Xbox 360 and PS3 for some time -- and Grocery IQ, both of which obviously bring very different ex
Microsoft’s Kinnect Helped Power It To A Record Quarter, Indicating A New Era For Both MSFT & Personal Computing

Xbox 360 mandatory update restores boot to disc, detains Call of Duty pirates for a tad
The story of the Trojan Horse must be a favorite among video game console manufacturers, because software updates these days often come with more than bargained for -- today, Microsoft issued a mandatory Xbox 360 update, reportedly for a single bugfix, but which seems to have coincidentally halted scores of pirates and hackers from playing Call of Duty: Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 on the conso
