Projectors: The Future of Big Time Gaming

50°
307w ago - Gamers, if you have never had the experience of playing video games on a projector screen, you are missing out. Up until just a few days ago I was untrained in such picture perfection as well.

But after borrowing a projector from a friend at church to use for the Super Bowl, I could not help but hook up the Xbox as well. Using a VGA cable hooked to a Dell DLP projector that is a few years old has made Left 4 Dead an insane game to play.

That is without the over the Internet multiplayer ability.... but relax, I was playing co-op with a buddy. Just imagine split screening on an image that is probably 4 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide, it aint a bad deal by any means.

Searching Dell's Web site, I cannot find the projector that I have been using to give you the specific stats. This makes me think that it is a few years old and that the ones for sale today would actually be higher quality for the same price. With all of the options of projectors what should be done for superior gaming experiences?

First and foremost, go for a DLP projector. They offer superior image quality in terms of both picture quality and contrast ratio. You will pay for it up front though, with most DLP projectors costing a lot more than their counterparts. DLP micromirrorsThis arises from the fact...
 

Apple's Next iPhone Upgrade Will Rule at Handheld Gaming

50°
308w ago - The next upgrade to Apple's iPhone will have a strong focus on gaming, analysts and developers agree.

That's because the gaming market is an increasingly juicy segment of the mobile multimedia space – and it's one that Apple's phenomenally successful iPhone is well-positioned to dominate.

"The iPhone and iPod Touch are becoming a major new handheld gaming platform, and if you look at the App Store and look at what's doing well, that's reflecting," said Bart Decrem, CEO of Tapulous, developer of the popular Tap Tap Revenge iPhone game. "I would look forward to improvements in the device as a gaming platform both for the phone and iPod Touch."

Apple made clear its plans to seize the gaming market in November 2008 when Apple marketing executive Greg Joswiak called the iPhone and iPod Touch "the future of gameplay," posing a serious threat to dedicated gaming consoles such as the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP.

The reasons? A few things: The quick, electronic distribution method of games and apps via the iPhone's App Store; the accelerometer and multitouch display, which are introducing new approaches to gameplay; and the iPhone's lighter, more portable form factor compared to its rivals.
