321w ago - StreamMyGame.com announced today that its software now enables 2D applications as such as Microsoft Office as well as 3D games to be used remotely on low spec Windows notebooks, Linux devices and the PlayStation 3.

StreamMyGame.com offers its members the flexibility to use their 2D applications installed on a main PC on any other PC or Linux device in their home or home office. The application does not need to be installed on the remote PC/device.

UT3 Mods: No headway for 360, Sony to see improvements

50°
321w ago - Our prognosis for mods on the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament 3: not so good. In an interview with Joystiq, Epic Games' VP Mark Rein told us that there's no progress with Microsoft on making UT3 mods work with Xbox Live.

One would think Microsoft would be more open to community content given the recent Xbox Live Community announcement, but Rein noted that the system is different. Rein said the Xbox 360 version has no set release date.

Conversely, Rein did acknowledge the current PS3 mod system is less than stellar and told us to expect improvements coming soon.

We'll have more from our interviews with Mark Rein, CEO Tim Sweeney, and Cliffy B later this week.
 

Sony-Backed Blu-ray Wins: Will Sony's PS3 Follow Suit?

50°
321w ago - After the victory of Blu-ray format over HD DVD (Toshiba announced yesterday that they would halt production of HD DVD players and recorders, and would stop shipping to retailers by the end of March), will the PLAYSTATION 3 follow suit?

Is it possible that, although the PLAYSTATION 3 has started more slowly than the other consoles, that it will pick up momentum, and ultimately win the console wars?

After the fall of HD DVD, backed by Microsoft, and the lack of DVD support in the Wii (and no high definition support, either), it's understandable that consumers will want the most affordable player for the next generation of video (Blu-ray). Because of the fact that the PLAYSTATION 3 console is cheaper than the vast majority of current Blu-ray players, and that the PLAYSTATION 3 will continue to fall in price in comparison, it is the most viable option for those wishing to watch movies in high definition.

Not only is the PLAYSTATION 3 now one of the cheapest players on the market for the only next generation video format, it also has a stockpile of highly anticipated games coming out for it in 2008. Games like Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Killzone 2 are games that will push the PLAYSTATION 3 over the edge, and give it a year as good as or better than Xbox...
