Mass Effect Geth Pulse Rifle Full Scale Replica does not just look pretty

If you are a huge fan of the Mass Effect video game franchise, then I am quite sure that you would have also amassed quite a collection of knowledge concerning the various weapons that the Mass Effect franchise has – in addition to the backstory of all the characters involved. This holiday season, would you want to be a little bit more extravagant with yourself – by picking up this $974.99 Mass Effect Geth Pulse Rifle?

The Mass Effect Geth Pulse Rifle is a full scale replica device, and it does not just sit there on your shelf looking pretty. In fact, it would tip the scales at a rather hefty 20lbs, so you might want to make sure that your hands are not too sweaty when you pick it up since dropping it is going to cause two cracks – one in your heart, and perhaps another on the replica rifle itself. Apart from that, the Mass Effect Geth Pulse Rifle will boast of LED effects for you to maximize your imagination, but I would doubt that you will be letting your 5 year old nephew play with such an expensive “toy” since it is a Limited Edition with just 500 units of this bad boy around the world. Each one of these will be unique, since they come across in hand-finished and hand-painted polystone.

Razer Seirēn Digital Microphone targets streamers

When we talk about the brand name Razer, most of the time, if not all, we would have our attention turned to the presence of a gaming peripheral that is deemed to light up your gaming sessions due to the high quality build as well as performance capabilities. However, a microphone is not exactly something that one would think of where the name Razer is concerned – however this has not stopped the introduction of the Razer Seirēn digital microphone that offers studio-grade recording quality for streamers.

In other words, one would be able to enjoy professional level recording and streaming thanks to the Razer Seirēn’s plug-and-play setup. This unique plug-and-play digital microphone has been specially designed for studio-grade recording and streaming, where it boasts of a versatile multi-pattern USB digital connection that is capable of a quartet of different recording pattern configurations alongside a trio of custom-tuned 14 mm condenser capsules. In turn, this would make the Razer Seirēn digital microphone perfect for the needs of professional musicians, streamers and YouTubers who want nothing but the very best clarity.

The plug-and-play simplicity of this microphone is a snap to use regardless of whether you are at the studio or at home. Apart from that, the Razer Seirēn would also enable content creators to switch in a jiffy between 4 different polar recording patterns (Cardioid, Stereo, Bidirectional and Omnidirectional) through the rotation of the main control knob. This would pave the way for greater versatility of use depending on recording applications. The microphone has a built-in headphone amplifier that allows for zero latency, alongside real time accurate monitoring of recordings so that users will be able to sound exactly as they intend to.

Do expect the Razer Seirēn digital microphone to retail for $179.99 where it is going for €179.99 across the pond. There will also be a couple of accessories available, namely the shock mount accessory and the pop filter accessory that will retail for $49.99 apiece.

zooti.HD offers a portable cloud gaming tablet experience

The choice of hardware when it comes to mobile gaming these days are expansive. I remember back when Nokia used to rule the featurephone market (and there were practically no regular, everyman smartphones available other than the bulky Nokia Communicator series), mobile gaming was relegated to the likes of Snake on them Symbian powered phones, or if you want something more realistic and engaging, you would have to settle for the likes of the Sony PSP or the Nintendo Game Boy Advance or Nintendo DS Lite. Having said that, the explosion of mobile devices over the years have seen mobile gaming evolve, with smartphones and tablets being the primary tools of portable entertainment. The zooti.HD tablet intends to jump aboard such a bandwagon by offering a portable cloud gaming tablet experience.

AtGames, the people who are behind the zooti.HD tablet, has launched their zooti cloud gaming service in January earlier this year at CES. This means one will be able to take advantage of the numerous retro-popular Sega Genesis Classic and Atari Flashback titles on the Google-certified Android tablet that they call the zooti.HD. It is no pushover, this tablet – make no mistake about it, since it comes across as a full featured, Android tablet that will include the full suite of Google apps, not to mention a game bundle that contains more than 85 classic Sega Genesis titles.

Apart from that, you can use the zooti.HD to seamlessly stream hot PC games right to the tablet itself. The asking price for the zooti.HD ain’t too high either – we are looking at some change being returned to you even after you have handed over a single Benjamin – talk about a value for money proposition! One can configure up to 6 different profiles to use the tablet, where each of these profiles can be customized with its own access rights, including the likes of daily time limits, content management, and other parental and safety controls. Hardware specifications of the zooti.HD include a 7” display at 1280 x 800 IPS resolution, an HDMI port, and Bluetooth support.

Sony PlayStation 4 celebrates the 20th birthday of the PlayStation

The Sony PlayStation certainly has a colorful history, taking into consideration that Sony more or less “stumbled” into the console market by accident – or at least the circumstances surrounding the company actually led to the release of the PlayStation that subsequently took the world by storm, so much so that its sequels, the PS2, PS3, and now, PS4 have gone on to grow from strength to strength, always presenting the best possible technology at the time of its release. I still remember how the Sony PlayStation delivered Final Fantasy VII – across multiple discs, to boot, and never mind the long load times, it was worth every single second. With 20 years passing by since the launch of the original PlayStation, where it was first introduced to Japan on December 3rd, 1994, Sony has decided to celebrate two decades of the PlayStation in existence by introducing the special 20th Anniversary Edition PS4.

As you can more or less tell by its name already, the 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 will come in the classic PlayStation shade of grey – and the same applies to the controller, too. It will definitely help you roll back the years and think of all the great moments that you have spent with the PlayStation all those years ago, although the 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 will sport cutting edge technology that has made it such a best seller across multiple markets today where consoles are concerned.

If you happen to live in the US and would like to place a preorder for the 20th Anniversary Edition PS4, then you might want to hurry up since it will be available in very limited supply. Preorders will kick off this Saturday, December 6th. As for the pricing details, we do not know of it just yet, but I suppose all will be revealed later this morning.

When it comes to gaming, there are many different options that one is able to choose from, and while some folks prefer the reliability of a console, where you are more or less guaranteed to be able to play any game that is released on that particular console, others prefer the flexibility of a gaming PC that would let you tweak its performance capabilities accordingly. Dell’s Alienware brand has released a fair number of high end gaming products in the past, but this time around, they intend to deliver a true next-gen gaming experience by offering the best of both worlds – both in the console and PC gaming departments, of course.

With the Alienware Alpha, one will be able to enjoy more than 600 Steam controller-supported games right smack in the middle of into your living room. The Alienware Alpha is deemed to be the first PC gaming console in the world that delivers the ease of a console, and yet offers the freedom of a complete PC. Expect the Alienware Alpha to pack the most recent technologies from Intel and NVIDIA, coming in a form factor that is only a fraction of the size of the existing “next-generation” consoles. The Alienware Alpha boasts of a striking design that is undeniably Alienware, and yet it does not look as though it is out of place when placed under your TV.

While you can have it run on Windows 8.1, the Alienware Alpha will boot straight into the Alpha-UI, which happens to be an exclusive user interface that offers streamlined controller-based navigation, which means that there is no need for any kind of mouse or keyboard.

NVIDIA GRID On-Demand Gaming Service Announced

The NVIDIA GRID on-demand gaming service has just been introduced, where it intends to push forward the idea that gaming gratification should be fulfilled in an instant. Out in North America on November 18th, as well as making its way across the pond to Europe in December, while the rest of Asia will have to wait until next year, GRID happens to be free on the SHIELD tablet as well SHIELD portable all the way through June 30, 2015.

GRID would be able to make gaming gratification immediate, but it did take NVIDIA a decade to come up with the technology required in order to get the streaming service up and running, where it streams GeForce GTX-quality graphics to SHIELD devices. Some of the technologies found in GRID happen to be super-low-latency from controller streaming to graphics and all the way to game streaming. Apart from that, there is also virtualization to take into consideration in order for gamers to share the Geforce cloud gaming supercomputer.

After that, there is the hard work of having to place up to thousands of GRID GPUs into data centers that are located all over the world. This is a gargantuan effort by any means, where we would end up with having up to 20 petaflops of graphics processing compute power placed right into the cloud, making it more or less on par with that of the fastest supercomputer in the U.S.

As for the gaming titles made available, you will be spoilt for choice – there are triple A titles including Batman: Arkham City and Borderlands 2, in addition to classics that will roll back the years, such as Brutal Legend and Psychonauts. There will be 20 great games on GRID at launch that are worth more than $400, with the plan to introduce additional games with each passing week. Can your patience hold out until November 18th?
