Vuzix iWear: Next-gen for Gamers, Portable Cinema Screen

50°
344w ago - Although a bit pricey (Virtual 44" Screen is $249.95, Virtual 62" Screen is $349.95, "PC Only" is $399.95), would this be the next-gen for extreme gamers?

From the Web site: Vuzix iWear is a stunningly impressive range of face-furniture that allows you to watch whatever you like whenever you like, in the privacy of your own... erm, head.

Simply slip on these lightweight cyber-shades and prepare to be totally blown away by a fully immersive audiovisual assault. That's right, we said audiovisual because these slimline shades even boast integrated (but removable) earphones.

No Split-Screen Multiplayer for GTA4

400°
348w ago - There's been a lot of inquiries made lately about Grand Theft Auto 4, PlayStation 3's multiplayer mode, and what types of games it will support. Among the hot topics are whether or not split-screen action will be available.

The answer? Don't bet on it.

Stephen Totilo of the MTV Multiplayer blog has posted recently that the feature just isn't there. He says he learned of this from Rockstar Games itself as he played a Devkit version of the game via a local network in the developer's New York City office.

The blogger points out that limitations in hardware is a probable reason for the feature being omitted. He reasons that the sheer size of Liberty City being rendered split-screen may be a bit too much even with the hardware of the Xbox 360 and the PS3. He also points out that the feature seems less essential in an age when most people who'll be playing GTA 4 can easily have multiplayer action online.

Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games will launch GTA 4 come April 29th. The game has already gone gold and is touted as this year's biggest software entertainment release.
 

Motorstorm 2 to be Four Player Split Screen Island Getaway

50°
356w ago - Darren Waters of the BBC has confirmed that Motorstorm 2 will feature a four player split screen option, thus fixing one of the key missing features in the first game.

Waters goes on to mention the game is months away from completion, but the engine looks superb and the graphics as you'd expect were very impressive.

To quote: Here's what I was shown:

Motorstorm 2 is due out in time for Christmas and moves the action away from the desert locale of the original. Gamers will be able to race around a lush island environment, full of interactive vegetation.

The game will feature four-player split-screen action, righting one of the obvious failings of the first game.

The title is some months away from completion but the game's engine looked rock solid and the graphics were as impressive as one would expect from one of the best-looking racing franchises.
