GameStop Creates Digital Distribution Executive Position -- A Sign Of Things To Come?

GameStop wasted no time in making good on its September promise to start selling a line of branded, Android-powered tablet, as that's exactly what the retailer is now doing. As an initial test run, 200 GameStop retail locations in the U.S. are now hawking the first run of these devices, according to The Wall Street Journal (via Gamasutra).

The branded tablets come from Asus, Acer and Samsung and are priced to compete with the prices you'd see on the same devices in competing stores. The ones GameStop is selling come pre-loaded with seven games, however, including the mobile versions of Electronic Arts' Dead Space and Madden NFL, as well as the retailer's Kongregate Arcade app.

Xperia Play

You know how you got used to saying "Sony Ericsson" when discussing mobile phones? Well get un-used to it, pronto. Sony has purchased Telefon AB L.M. Ericsson of Sweden, because Sony would like to boost the company's strategy to connect its mobile-gadget offerings with an online network of music, videos and games. In other words, compete with Samsung, Apple and and everyone else by merging your TV, your phone, and your game system.

What did this sure-to-be successful venture cost Sony? One and a half billion (with a "B") dollars.

How well Sony can compete with the iPhone will depend on the products it releases, obviously, and one of the products Sony seems very keen on is the Xperia Play, an Android-based handset that takes full advantage of Sony's PlayStation brand. Plus, you can play Minecraft on it, which is almost enough to get me to switch phones.

NVIDIA Announces New 3D Vision Glasses and Monitors

It's PC Gaming week here at G4, so, PC gamers, I urge you to check out the 3D glasses above. They're new from NVIDIA's 3D Vision line, and they will project your mind into another dimension.

NVIDIA 3D Vision 2, the next generation of NVIDIA’s award-winning 3D technology, features newly-redesigned, gamer-inspired glasses, but it also introduces NVIDIA 3D LightBoost technology, a display technology that is meant to dramatically improves the 3D experience by "delivering images that are up to twice as bright and colors that are far richer than those provided by other 3D display technologies." Should this actually work as advertised, we're talking about conquering one of the main drawbacks of 3D -- the fact that it's usually too dark.
