Which product do you need in your life?

In this Project Fiona preview, I was among the first people ever to get their hands on a new gaming form factor. At CES 2012, I got to play around with a working prototype for a new kind of gaming computer. Razer is calling it "Project Fiona," and it's a hybrid tablet and gaming PC.

As you can see from the video, Fiona looks like the unholy offspring of an iPad and a console. It has your by-now-standard touch screen, and all the tablet-y goodness that that implies, but also offers game controllers attached to the sides. You grip the handles of the device and employ the dual analog sticks and buttons, but the whole thing is portable, so you can play games on the bus. When I say "games," I don't mean Cut the Rope and Angry Birds. Unlike most existing tablets, Fiona is meant to play AAA PC games, right out of the box, that usually only show up on desktops or laptops. But there's oh so much more...including a Project Fiona photo gallery that you must see.

At CES 2012, gaming peripheral company Razer unveiled their PC gaming tablet prototype, currently titled Project Fiona. Project Fiona isn't a full on console, nor is it a device that's just for simple mobile games. Fiona is a tablet that comes with an Intel Core i7 processor, a highly sensitive multi-touch screen, ultra-precise accelerometers, and it's capable of running "current-generation PC games". Currently the device doesn't have a price tag but Razer said it will cost under $1,000 when it launches in Q4 2012.

Razer Announces The Naga Hex Gaming Mouse Designed For MOBA Gamers

Gaming peripheral company Razer have announced their new gaming mouse, The Razer Naga Hex. The Naga Hex is designed to bring your MOBA, action-RPG and hack and slash gaming skills to the next level. Inspired by the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse which sports a 12-button thumb grid on the side, the Hex features six large thumb buttons, "optimized for the user interfaces found in action-RPG and MOBA games."

“I love RPG and MOBA games.  And I believe that having the right abilities available is the difference between slaying enemies and winning, or dying a miserable death and having your character wiped in hardcore mode,” said Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, President, Razer USA. “That’s why we designed the Razer Naga Hex – we believe that the six mechanical thumb buttons are going to help gamers stay ahead of the competition with the best ergonomic control.”

If you're not familiar with what a MOBA game is, think League of Legends or Dota 2. With the Hex, you'll be able to perfect your champion's moves on the fly and become a force to be reckoned with.

LG Electronics and Gaikai Inc. have announced a strategic partnership that will help bring cloud gaming to LG Cinema 3D TVs starting with the 2012 LG products. If you're not familiar with Gaikai, they're an awesome technology company that lets gamers play new games instantly on any web browser, mobile or internet-connected device. There are no games to download or install and you can just click and play their offerings instantly.

“Thanks to the Internet, you can watch the latest movies and listen to the latest music practically anywhere,” said David Perry the CEO of Gaikai, “but until today, to play the biggest blockbuster video games, every household has had to buy and set up expensive video game console hardware. That’s all about to change and pioneers in the space can build direct digital relationships with their end consumers.”

This means that consumers will be able to use their Smart TV sign-in and instantly and seamlessly play a broad range of games. According to Gaikai, when video games can be accessed as easily as movies and music are currently, gaming will become the #1 form of entertainment in the world.

Netflix CEO Says Likelihood Of Nintendo Support Is

Sony have announced that a Netflix app will be coming to the PlayStation Vita handheld console. The announcement didn't come with too many details, but according to the company they're trying to get the Netflix app ready for when the Vita launches on February 22.  It's a pretty smart decision, as the PlayStation Vita is equipped with a gorgeous 5-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 960×544, at around 220ppi, and movies will probably look great on it. What's still up in the air is though whether or not the Netflix app will be limited to WiFi or if it will be supported over 3G, but considering the high price of the Vita data plans it will be interesting to see which route they take.

The Most Awkward Job At CES 2010 (Of Course, It Involves 3D)

Welcome to our 2011 Holiday Buyer's Guide for 3D Gaming. This gaming trend has gained momentum in the past year thanks to the backing of key players in the video game industry. Sony is committed to supporting 3D in all of its new first-party PS3 games, Nintendo released a handheld dedicated to the new dimension and Microsoft even stepped up with a pair of Xbox 360 3D exclusive titles. On the PC side, Nvidia gave us a brighter 3D outlook by releasing the 3D Vision 2 glasses, which aren’t half as dark as the original lenses. So, although consumers have been slow to adopt this technology, the fact that 3D is being built into TV sets, computer monitors and handhelds means that 3D gaming will creep into our lives whether we’re ready or not. Knowing that, if you’re adamant on being an early adopter who owns all of the coolest tech toys, impress your friends this season by adding these 3D gadgets and games to your 2011 holiday wish list.

Razer Blade: The Ultimate Gaming Laptop?

Razer's Blade laptop is the peripheral maker's upcoming first entry into the gaming device space, a $2,800 beast of a portable PC with more than enough power to play any new game you might want to sit down with. Unfortunately for Razer, a pair of prototype units were stolen from its R&D offices earlier this month. 

The company came forward with the news earlier this week in the hopes of getting its fan community to help track down the missing units and the test data they carry. Police are investigating as well, of course, but there aren't yet any suspects. Razer told Kotaku that the theft shouldn't impact the Blade release plans at all; assuming that's true, you can expect to see the laptop arrive sometime before the end of this year.
