PlayStation & XBox Games Turn Kids Into Scientists & Engineers

250°
277w ago - PlayStation and Xbox games help children become the scientists and engineers of the future, a professor claims.

To quote: Children who spend hours every day on their Playstation or Xbox video consoles are improving their brains, according to new research.

A study of 12 year-olds found they boosted crucial visual-spatial skills in which a child learns by thinking in pictures and images.

Psychologist Professor Linda Jackson, who led the study, said: "And these are the areas where we want to see improvements in our children's academic performance."

The findings are likely to surprise supporters of tougher regulation of computer games - some of which have been blamed for influencing violent crime among children.

The three-year study is part of a larger project exploring the effects of technology on children's academic performance and their social life, psychological well-being and moral reasoning.

Rsearchers asked how often the children used cell phones and played video games, both online and offline, and measured the children's grades, visual-spatial skills and performance in maths and reading tests.

As expected girls used cell phones more frequently than boys - who played video games far more frequently than did the females.

Q-Games Unveils PixelJunk Eden Encore Details for PlayStation 3

100°
278w ago - President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert of Q-Games Ltd. revealed more details of PixelJunk Eden Encore for PlayStation 3 today, as follows:

This is Dylan from [Register or Login to view links], the company behind PixelJunk, and this is all about Eden Encore.

First things first, what have we added? Well, basically we have added five whole new stages, each one choc-a-bloc full of ideas and gimmicks. We also designed five brand new backgrounds for them (each background for a garden is programmed uniquely just for that garden's style - just in case you hadn't noticed that in the original), and [Register or Login to view links] went away and created five brilliant new tracks of music to match it all up.

To make things a little easier we are going to retro-patch the original Eden to have a new feature we created for Encore. This is the three-seed smart-bomb power your Grimp now has. Simply put, if you jump into three full seeds in a row, all the "Prowlers" on the screen explode into a big cloud of pollen. Everyone who boots up their original Eden in a few weeks will be patched and get this feature, so look out for that!

Thinking up new stages for Eden was hard work. We put a lot of stuff into the original game, especially the gardens onwards from garden...
