The Razer Switchblade may be the most impressive device to come out of CES 2011. There, I said it. Razer announced the development of an innovative "concept design" that would bring PC gaming to a portable form. It's powered by an Intel Atom processor and uses touch-screens rather than the traditional mouse and keyboard. It's still in developmental stages but the fact that this is being worked on at all is worth noting, even if we don't know when or if it will get mass produced.

CES means one thing to us here at G4: New and exciting controllers, and Razer's just-revealed 360 controllers are as new and exciting as it gets. They're putting out two controllers: The Razer Onza 360 Tournament editions controller pictured above, and a Standard edition.
Onza Tournament Edition offers adjustable resistance analog sticks, and the ability to twist the analog sticks in one direction to make them more resistant for steadier control, or twist in the opposite direction for quicker, fluid movements.

I admit it; I'm nerding out over Nyko's just announced gun peripherals for the PlayStation Move.
Above is the Power Shot for Move, an "ergonomic tactical rifle attachment" that features "removable and rotating Navigation Controller dock allows the player to hold the Power Shot in various configurations, making it ideal for left and right handed gamers." According to Nyko, the "tactile trigger replicates the Motion Controller button for smooth firing and the aiming sight increases the player's accuracy. The Power Shot also features an extendable stock, allowing for utmost stability and precision during intense action games." It's out on March.

Torchlight will be part of the Xbox Live Arcade House Party pack, where a big game per week will be dropping, beginning on February 16. The first title will be Konami's side-scroller Hard Corps Uprising, and after that, Beyond Good & Evil, Full House Poker, Bejeweled Blitz Live and Torchlight will be released, one per week. Sadly, the exact dates on the games isn't known yet, but when we hear, we'll let you know.
Torchlight and Live are a perfect fit, and I can't wait to dive into some chaotic, elves-and-spells action when this lands!
Sony left us gamers a bit out in the cold at the CES 2011 Keynote, hyping their new 3D products but skimping on any game details. They mentioned Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5, and showed us the "already seen round the world" trailer for Uncharted 3, but other than a passing mention at a "Play Memories" photo app that can handle 3D photos and a Music Unlimited feature coming to Qriocity on the PlayStation, there was no gaming information at all. Heck, they didn't even tease Little Big Planet 2 or DC Universe Online, both of which come out this month.
While the show hasn't even started yet, and this was really a platform for product launching, we're surprised that there wasn't any more hype for Sony's "It Does Everything" machine. With the Move just released recently, we thought we heard more about that, for sure, and where was the rumored/leaked PlayStation Phone or the PSP 2 that we keep hearing rumblings about? At any rate, a terrifically gamer-centric Sony Keynote unfolded in the fantasy realm of our heads using pure 3D and Sony's own "Make. Believe." slogan. Read on to find out what we wish Sony would have announced at CES 2011.
