part 1

1967/1972 - Magnavox Odyssey - the world's first home video game console. The Odyssey was designed by Ralph Baer, who began around 1966 and had a working prototype (Brown Box) finished by 1968. It is also designed to support an add-on peripheral, the first-ever commercial video "light gun" called the "Shooting Gallery". This detected light from the TV screen, though pointing the gun at a nearby light bulb also registered as a "hit". :p

PSP Go!!!

Before, sliding screens are for mobile phones, now Sony's PSP Go presents us with well... a slide screen handheld game device. Smaller and lighter and suppose to be better. It's got 3.8 inch screen, 43% lighter than PSP3000 and with 16gb flash memory!



So you have seen previews of RUSE, and Avatar (see previous blog if not) and amazed by the controllers...
Now, I suggest that you watch this pLUFFY controller!
Ok! Ok! I know it kinda dumb to compare it to Ubisoft's controller. It just kinda reminds me of the time in my life when I was addicted to playing Monster Rancher.
Also, come on guys! Let's make love not war. Spend some time caressing, be tender, be sweet, let's play hide and seek and be naughty, ok forget that one...
I really do not know why this lady named this controller pluff but I think it sounds like that when you drop it on the floor... I wonder how Pluff would look on the screen if he is dropped... hmmm...

Avatar - Ubisoft - Ruse all asking for your heart

AVATAR (James Cameron) Trailer

Avatar is set during the 22nd century on a small moon called Pandora, which orbits a gas giant, and is inhabited by the tribal Na'vi, ten foot blue humanoids that are peaceful unless attacked. Humans cannot breathe Pandoran air, so they genetically engineer human/Na'vi hybrids known as Avatars that can be controlled via a mental link. A paralyzed Marine named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) volunteers to exist as an Avatar on Pandora, falling in love with a Na'vi princess and becoming caught up in the conflict between her people and the human military that is consuming their world (Wikipedia)

*James Cameron chose Ubisoft (which appears to be working on a motion-sensing controller, a surface-type computer project and the first major 3d stereoscopic) to create an RPG of this film... and I think he has every reason why!
Take a look at the video below and be amazed!

Developed by Eugen Systems, R.U.S.E is set to refresh the strategy genre, introducing deception techniques that will let you bluff your enemy to lead your nation's army to victory. Camouflage your troops, lure your opponent with decoy units, sabotage his logistics: strategy has never been so intuitive and deep.

R.U.S.E features cutting edge graphics and effects, the incredible IRISZOOM Engine, immersive combat and a simplified interface that allows you to determine your nation’s strategy to defeat your enemies.

R.U.S.E is scheduled for release on PC, XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3. (
