Freakin' Friday! 3DS Test Run by Jimmy Fallon

Amidst the hoopla surrounding the release of the 3DS, many critics are quick to shut it down on its usability or difficulty to play, but Jimmy Fallon was filled with glee when he got the opportunity to play with it last week. (But come to think of it, he is always gleeful.)

In its second week out, the portable game system sold 50,710 units, breaking the record of the PSP as the fastest selling. No doubt many of those were from people that can't resist shooting the faces of their closest buds.

Sony Takes New Stride in Gaming

Sony is working on a new technology for video gaming that allows players to see a different image depending on where they are in the room. With 3D 'Killzone 3,' the gamers will not be able to view what each competitor is doing. The tech is a form of split screen and will not be available to the public for quite a while, but may be eventually incorporated in their TVs in the future.

Where has James Cameron been of late, you ask? He has been busily at work on "Sanctum," a new 3D movie that he is producing. The plot concerns some cave divers who find themselves trapped. The supposedly fact-based film is scheduled for a limited trailer showing this month and a debut February 4, so polish up those ugly glasses.
