As far as we know, the kind of laziness which prevents you from visiting the nearest Blockbuster Video is a worldwide phenomenon.

Probably the coolest iPhone-related product to come out of the festivities at CES so far this week is the AR.Drone, created by a company called Parrot.

Sony Online Entertainment released a video blog from CES 2009 specifically about the game, with SOE President John Smedley and Cre...

When Sony rattled off at last week's CES that 17 million PlayStation Network accounts had been registered, we were at once both impressed and skeptical. That number happens to match Xbox Live's data that was released days prior, despite its one-year lead and more aggressive push in the field. The D...

Koei's Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce is only two months away. At CES, the company projected its new Strikeforce trailer for the masses to see. Now, you can see it too. This trailer showcases the high-flying action of the button masher. It's predictably Dynasty Warriors, but that's not such a bad t...

The author burnt out several synapses levitating the ball for this photo. Mattel had a booth at CES pimping out things like U.B. Funkeys, a Barbie nail design automatic applicator contraption, and Mindflex, a game that claims to harness the untapped power of your brain's beta waves. These are waves...

With Justin back from CES we can present this slightly belated wrap-up of all last week's events, including the Consumer Electronics Show and the 1UPocolypse that's still producing shockwaves. On that note, thanks to Dan Diemer for his 1UP tribute, which you can find at the end of the show. It's n...
