Sony Takes New Stride in Gaming

multisonyscreen.jpg

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.

Playing Video Games Eases Stress

The next time your mom/mate complains that you play video games too much, you can claim that it is easing your stress. A survey conducted by East Carolina University and underwritten by PopCap Games arranged for 59 humans suffering for depression to play the games Bejeweled 2, Peggle or Bookworm Adventures for a set amount of time per day for a full month. The result was that those who played managed to reduce their stress by 57%.

Sony Looks to Eventual PS Android Smartphones

sony_playstation_suite_android.jpg

Although we are not prone to rumors, this one from Sony Computer Entertainment's President CEO Kazuo Hirai seems promising. They are thinking of partnering again with Google TV. (The Sony Bravia NSX-40GT1 has already included Google TV with mostly uninspiring results.)

The move means not only support for their Playstation Suite (another reason to keep playing) but a future that will include "PlayStation Certified" Android phones that can play in PS quality. The company will keep an eye on the PSS before leaping to the phone idea, but we see this idea as a keeper.

Set for release March 27, you can preorder now for one in basic black or aqua blue.

Walmart Black Week

Wallyworld is pushing itself to the max this week. They plan on opening at midnight Black Friday. While they say that this is to keep shoppers out of the cold, we know they are after those shoppers who consider the day a sport and line up a couple of days early. Nonetheless, the electronics will not be available until 5:00 a.m. Since the store offers plenty of online deals, you can still stay out of the cold.
