Odd timing too, as all this happens in the wake of Sony’s super-powered PSP2 announcement, now called Next Generation Portable (NGP), and it’s plan to bring PlayStation content to Android phones and other devices.

Biggest Year In Gaming History Will Be 2011, Massive Game Release Schedule Unveiled

by Ernice Gilbert on January 5th, 2011, under Hot, Microsoft, News, Nintendo, Sony

You know what? I’ll call it: 2011 will usher gaming into new realms. From 3D gaming, the Kinect revolution, which, by the way, technology developer PrimeSense is taking to PCs. We have the PSP2, the 3DS and probably the WiiHD or Wii2 coming all this year. That’s on the hardware side of things alone.

As for software, 2011 trumps all the years before it like a bulldozer ridding a piece of land of its grass. This year alone we’ll have Killzone 3, Gears of War 3, another Call of Duty, not to mention Black Ops DLC. Bulletstorm, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, inFamous 2, Dead Space 2, Mass Effect 2 and so on.

Thankfully, GameInformer’s forged up a massive list featuring a release schedule for all platforms this year, including the DS and PSP. Apparently, according to the author, Far Cry 3 will be released in August of this year. Don’t know where he got that from so we’ll have to wait to hear more.

Either ways, hit the link, I think you’ll get to understand better why gaming’s all the buzz this year, and why it’ll leave many a gamer broke. Dead broke.

by Ernice Gilbert on October 7th, 2010, under Epic Games, Hot, News, Nintendo

Although the iPhone can, Nintendo’s 3DS is not up to par with the Unreal Engine’s minimum specifications, and Epic Games has no plans of building one specifically for the handheld.

Still, it’s just an assumption, since neither Rein, or anyone else at Epic for that matter, has received a 3DS, so for now, they can’t tell for sure.

The 3DS is not only a revolutionary piece of hardware, it’s also extremely powerful. The visuals displayed on the screen’s extremely beautiful face-to-handheld — even more so in 3D.

Konami’s revealed that the “revival” of the PS2 blockbuster, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, will see its 3D release on Nintendo’s handheld in Japan next spring.
