Sony Taking Action Against Phony Uncharted Airsoft Gun

50°
345w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment is none too thrilled over the fact that online retailer King of Swords is selling an unofficial replica of the Beretta M92F gun featured in PlayStation 3 title Uncharted.

According to a company spokesperson, they will be taking "appropriate" measures against the Web site very soon:

The Drake's Gun is not licensed or in any way sanctioned by SCE and one we certainly do not condone.

We are investigating the source of this product and will proceed with the most appropriate action.

It's worth pointing out that this same retailer is also selling a number of unlicensed swords from the Final Fantasy series.
 

Confirmed: You actually can be dressed as Altair in MGS4

50°
346w ago - Konami have revealed that you will be able to unlock an Altair Assassin's Creed outfit for Snake in MGS4. It was seen in a video earlier this year, but was presumed to be an April Fool's joke.

To quote: Snake running around MGS4 dressed as Altair, looking for all the world like it was actually in the game... so would it surprise you to hear that it wasn't really a gag? Yeah, that's right.

It was announced at the MGS4 wrap party today that MGS4 players will indeed be able to unlock an Assassin's Creed outfit for Snake (we won't tell you how), which were it not for the silver moustache and trademark cigarette would have you thinking Altair himself had time-travelled his way into the final Metal Gear title.
 

Call of Duty 4: Fastest Airstrike Ever

50°
346w ago - Air support in 3 seconds? It's easy! See the carnage in our chaotic video, and find out how to do it yourself!

Want to call in air support in under 10 seconds? Want to level up your character in the least amount of time? You don't need to bother with lame aim bots that'll get you banned from your favorite servers. In fact, you don't even need to be that good at Call of Duty 4.

Racking up ridiculous kill streaks can be easy if you're playing under the right conditions. Head to the server "=OG= 24/7 Shipment SlaughterHouse" (their IP address is 69.3115.39:29460). This server supports up to 53 players on CoD 4's tiniest map, Shipment.




There'll be lots of incoming fire and grenades flying at you from the second you hop in, so expect to die a lot. Get out of harm's way as soon as possible and grab a sweet spot where you can crouch near cover or lie prone with a clear view of any of the map's spawn points. For a brief moment, even the clumsiest player can rack up an impressive kill streak in no time.

Is it cheesy to blast away at a spawn point with a steady stream of helpless traffic? Most definitely. But it's also a blast - especially if you're in the mood for a break from the usual rotations of maps...
 

Lair patch now available in Europe for PS3

100°
350w ago - According to reports, a 150MB Lair patch is now available to download bringing analog flight controls to the game, a targeting icon and Dual Shock 3 rumble support.

It apparently is only currently available in Europe.

To quote: It's true, we didn't like Lair but that doesn't mean that we're not excited about the analog patch (calling itself 2.10) which is up now for download, and weighs in at 150-ish MB.

Update: wow, that was fast. Cool, Lair now has 'analog flight controls' and crosshairs in the options menu. Note that this appears to just be for European versions of the game at the moment.

Update 2: this is much better. Much. Might be time to re-review the game. Note that dash and u-turn are now mapped to the d-pad, too.
 

Thin Intel Netbook to vie with MacBook Air?

50°
351w ago - During a keynote speech at the Intel Developer Forum in Shanghai, an Intel executive brandished a Netbook that looked Air-thin. Will inexpensive Linux Netbooks be a poor man's MacBook Air?

Most of the photos to date of upcoming Netbooks are ho-hum designs, engineered to be inexpensive yet practical for users such as young schoolchildren. But some upcoming designs look intriguing--and extremely thin. (See close-up photo here--PC Watch.)

"This Netbook is running Linux...As you see, this doesn't mean an ugly design. It's a really nice-looking, stylish design," said Dadi Perlmutter, executive vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobility Group, when waving a very-thin-looking Netbook (photo) at the audience during his keynote at IDF.

Consider the typical specifications for a Netbook (best exemplified by the tiny Eee PC) and it's not a stretch to design an ultraportable, ultrathin Netbook:

Power-sipping Atom processor: This chip will draw as little as 0.65 watt, much less than the Air's Core 2 Duo chip which has a TDP (Thermal Design Power, or thermal envelope) of 20 watts. This means less heat dissipation.

Solid-state drive: Netbooks (Eee PC, Intel Classmate) will typically use SSDs, not hard-disk drives--another power- and space-saving feature. (There will...
