Another game company has fallen victim to a hacker attack, just another in a long list of security breaches the last couple of months. This time it was Sonic the Hedgehog's stomping ground -- Sega -- that was pushed around by cyberbullies, who let themselves in uninvited and helped themselves to customer data. According to an email sent to Sega Pass users and reprinted by PlayStation Lifestyle, the online bandits stole personal information pertaining to members email addresses, dates of birth, and encrypted passwords. The damage could have been worse, as Sony insists that "no personal payment information was stored by Sega as we use external payment providers, meaning your payment details were... Read more...
Android gamers have made emulators such as N64oid, Ataroid, Gearoid, Nesoid, Snesoid, Gensoid, and Gameboid popular on the Android Market. However, that seems to be past tense, at least for now, as all of those emulators, written by Yong Zhang (yongzh) have been pulled from the Market. According to Zhang, his developer account has been removed and his apps pulled without warning. Fortunately for Android users, the Android Market is not the only place to buy apps. Even without rooting, most phones can sideload, which means install from non-Android Market stores (we use the term most until AT&T completes pushing out its updates to enable the functionality on its phones). Thus, Zhang has already... Read more...
Don't look now, but iOS has a huge share when it comes to mobile gaming. The App Store has become a giant in the industry, and now even Sega is taking notice. The hardware-gone-software company has just announced Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing for iOS, a game that should become an instant hit on Apple's iPod touch and iPhone. The iOS version of the game should be immediately familiar to fans of the prior version, and here's the killer part: multiplayer support is there over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, giving users two ways to game against one another. That just sold you, didn't it? It'll be released this spring, but a price hasn't been announced. LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (28th Feb 2010) –SEGA®... Read more...
You're probably familiar with the advertising that frequently appears above public urinals in men's restrooms. Always the innovator, Japan has a new idea for that unused space: video games, where the controller is your urine stream. They are called Toylets, and currently there are four models. To be clear, these are still in development. Manneken Pis, which simply calculates the amount of urine produced. Graffiti Eraser, in which graffiti on a wall is removed with a hose, your hose we suppose. The North Wind and Her, you are the north wind, and you  try to blow a dress off a girl. The stronger the urine stream, the harder the wind blows. Milk from Nose, two sumo wrestling characters blow... Read more...
The annals of history are filled with the wreckage of gaming consoles, their darkling masoleums* lit only dimly in the candle of nostalgia. The barriers to entry are such that even being in the right place at the right time is insufficient; would-be contenders must achieve both of these prerequisites and secure the funding of a multi-million dollar corporation. Despite such difficulties, there's a new face in the PC/HDTV gaming market and an intriguing new service launching in the next few weeks. The microconsole is about the same size as an iPhone Newcomer OnLive, which launched its streaming game service this past summer, has designed what they call a microconsole (the name is apt), paired...
