203w ago - A video is available below showcasing Razer's upcoming XBox 360 and Sixense controllers along with a headset from CES 2010.
To quote: "The XBOX 360 controller, which was prototyped for the show, brought a whole slew of features. Their hyper responsive buttons employ a switch rather than the standard membrane. What does this mean? Its freaking easy to click, and has nice audible feedback.
It has a lit edge, rubberized grip and is a pretty comfortable shape. On the top of the controller are two new shoulder buttons that are programmable via two sliders on the controller back.
These two buttons can mimic the functions of any face button, including analog clicks. Speaking of the analog sticks, each has an independent tension dial to allow you to get the "just right" feel on either stick. Its MSRP is slated at $49.99 and will be available in the near future.
The XBOX 360 headset was a nice piece of work as well. It features a wired base station that doubles as a charger and 5.1 surround support. When the system is powered off, the base station allows audio pass through so there will be no need to switching your receiver around.
For tournament play, the headsets cab ne daisy chained together to provide a private voice chat network. The headset was also a prototype...
220w ago - Just one day after Famitsu scans revealed a PS3 release of Star Ocean: The Last Hope for Japan, Square Enix announced a North American release of Star Ocean: The Last Hope International.
Since the Japanese game will include the English voice acting from the American release of the Xbox 360 version, localization time for this title is nil, there will be only five days between the Feburary 4 release in Japan and the February 9 North American release date!
It's an achievement made possible by... the game having already been released a year ago.
In addition to English and Japanese voices, this version includes French, Italian, German, and Spanish language options. And, perhaps most importantly for new players, the "running on a PS3" option.
To quote: "The fans begged for dual audio, and Square Enix deliver three times that - packing a whopping six languages into the Star Ocean: The Last Hope for PS3.
When the game is released simultaneously in the West and Japan on February 9th 2009 they'll be able to select from English, French, German, Italian, Spanish or even the game's mother tongue of Japanese for gameplay."
