Unity4Life's Games|Shadow is a simple-to-install and use device that transforms your BlackBerry into a remote control for your PlayStation 3. Basically, you plug in a dongle and go to town with your CrackBerry and your PS3.

The Games|Shadow will be out in April and it retails for around $40, so you might be saying, "Doesn't a PS3 remote control only cost like 20 bucks?" And the answer is, yeah. It does. But the Shadow controller has a couple advantages over a standard remote. First, it uses your BlackBerry, so there's no need for another remote to clutter up your coffee table. Secondly, it allows you to type with the BlackBerry's keyboard. That's pretty rad, eh?

According to the demo video below, the device gives you "all the great buttons," including pause, which is my all-time favorite!

I'll admit it... based off of the date (2007) and the amount of views (8.5M) this might be pretty old, and many of you may have already seen it... I hadn't so its getting posted right here, right now.

This kid is an AMAZING drummer, his foot work on the double bass pedals is outstanding. And its all to Super Mario.  EPIC WIN.

According to reports, there could be a significant loss in Sony's future. Instead of the predicted $2.2 billion profit for its 2008 fiscal year (which ends on March 31st, 2009), Sony could post a loss of $1.1 billion.

The report comes from the Nikkei Business Daily which was picked up by Reuters. This possible profit loss could make the planned restructuring get completed earlier than March 2010 -- which would cut 4% of Sony's workforce or 9000 jobs.

This would be Sony's first posted loss in 14 years and only its second publically reported loss ever. Ouch.

Are you all about Twitter, but tired of tweets about what your lame-ass friends had for breakfast this morning? Instead, how about following the ins-and-outs and daily minutia of your favorite video game companies? I assure you, it's a lot more interesting to read what someone is up to if they're actually doing something interesting.

To save you the scouring and keyword searching you'd need in order to add all these twitter users, Sam "QforQ" Houston has compiled a full list of industry specific Twitter accounts. Oh, and while you're adding feeds, why not add TheFeed's Twitter feed? "It's rad," as the kids say. And add Attack of the Show's feed, too.

See, I told you that I was going to write a story about the Yankees after posting Sony's disgusting Red Sox announcement. The New York Yankees have announced a partnership with Sony Electronics that will outfit the new Yankee Stadium with all sorts of Sony goods, including PlayStation 3s. According to MLB.com:

"Plans are for the new Yankee Stadium to have a Sony HD broadcast control room; more than 550 flat-panel BRAVIA and professional LCD HD television sets in the luxury suites, lounges, concourses, restaurants and administrative offices; plus Sony HD branding elements featured prominently throughout the stadium. In addition, Sony PlayStation 3 entertainment systems and VAIO notebook computers will be available to fans in select locations throughout the Stadium." 

I can't wait to drop by the new Yankee Stadium when I visit my parents this summer. Sure, I'll miss the old place, but I just know the new park will be awesome and ridiculous. I bet The Red Sox have a similar deal with Vizio or Westinghouse. *snicker*

Razer's New Gadgets At CES 2009

Posted January 8, 2009 - By kijibe

Gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer has unleashed a pair of goods for your fragging pleasure at CES 2009. The company touts that the Razer Mamba and the Razer Carcharias are for those who think "wireless lag time, high quality audio and increased precision can mean the difference between winning and losing."

Aimed at competitive players, the Mamba is an ergonomic mouse that comes with dual mode wired and wireless play, but *cough* it ain't cheap -- priced at $129.99 -- it really should guarantee that you'd win more than lose.

The Carcharias headset has a noise filtering microphone that comes with an inline remote for volume adjustment. The sound quality should make coordinating raids crystal clear. This isn't cheap either. It will cost you $79.99.

Are any of you guys psyched for these products? Think the Mamba will give you an edge in first-person shooters? Will the Carcharias make your MMO communication better?

I'm sitting in line for Sir Howard Stringer's keynote address at CES 2009 and I haven't had any coffee yet. Hopefully they'll let us filter in shortly, but for now I'll have to sit. Sir Howard Stringer is the Chairman and CEO of Sony and is, in fact, the cream of the crop. I won't sugar coat this, he'll probably have some announcements brewing for us. We were promised as much at Sony's press conference last night.

Also, he's British! That's kind of cool. I bet he prefers tea. Man, I really need a cup (or three) of coffee.

8:21 AM PT - Attendees are still filing into the room, but I'm already in my awesome seat. I think I punched Kaz Hirai to get up this close. I'm having some 3G card difficulties so if this live blog stops being updated just be patient. I swear the CEA uses an anti-internet field in this room. Last year I had great WiFi access for Bill Gates' final keynote until I got into this ballroom. Then it just died. It's a conspiracy against live blogging.

They are playing a bunch of hip-hop & R&B. I almost went an entire hour without hearing Lil Wayne somewhere, but Sony ruined that.

Ok, we're starting and they are showing a trailer for that new Mall Cop movie. I want popcorn now.

Mad Catz's CES Product Extravaganza

Mad Catz has announced some new toys at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

First, you now have even more choices when it comes to plugging up your ears when you need free hands and you gotta talk to mom on your drive home.

Mad Catz has released its AirDrives FIT Interactive Earphones and AirDrives FIT Interactive Earphones for iPhone.

It uses a patent pendidng InAir Technology which allows you to listen to the tunes but still be aware when someone is creeping up behind you. There are no frames in their earphones. Instead there's a wire loop that fits around the ears that's adjustable. Great for when you have your Blublockers or bike helmet on.

The AirDrives FIT earphones also has an integrated microphone that let's your pause your music to take those important calls, too.

They're priced at $59.99 -- yeah, a bit steep just for a pair of darn earphones, but let's see if the sonic quality makes it worth the price.

See video of Sony's entire press conference here!

Here we go folks, Time for Sony's Press Conference, which brings me to the Las Vegas Convention Center for the first time at CES 2009. The floor is still being setup, but Sony's got their booth alive and kicking complete with food and an open bar. Snazzy.

We're about 10 minutes from starting and they just tricked me by opening up their booth making about 40 new rows of chairs in front of me. I thought I was in the 7th row... Excuse me while I move closer.

4:15 PM PT - Ok, that's better. Now I'm in the real 6th row and a pair of 3D glasses was waiting on my new seat. Sony is showing off some new 3D HDTV technology that I'm guessing will be demoed for us live, on stage. It's taking longer to fill the seats than Sony expected, but the DJ is spinning some bitchin' house music so we're ready to get this party started up in here (up in here). It remains to be seen if we'll lose our minds and go all out.

4:30 PM PT - One drink down and we're ready to go. Rick Clancy is appearing to us on the Jeopardy stage via TV to welcome us to the press conference. Jeopardy will tape 11 shows from CES.  Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune were the first syndicated game shows to be broadcast in HD. That's Sony Pictures Television, but Rick's got more for us as Sony is an "entertainment powerhouse."

Talk about product placement -- this takes it to a whole other level.

SanDisk's 2GB SD cards are now branded with the Rock Band 2 logo.

If you're into that sort of thing, this card will let you hold 2GB of pretty much anything you want, game saves, music or otherwise. Nevermind that any SD card works in your Wii, but SanDisk is promoting this card specifically for the Wii.

Do you guys care to buy game-branded memory-cards?
