SmartGlass vs. WiiU: The battle of the second screen

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Today is third day of E3 2012 and the past two days have revealed some exciting innovation in the world of video games. Not only have we seen some amazing game releases that I couldn’t be more excited for *cough* Watch Dogs *cough* Dishonored *cough* but, we have seen a big focus on casual gaming and second screen technology from both Nintendo, with their WiiU, and Microsoft’s SmartGlass but, what are they and,  more importantly,  which is better?


The PSP Vita Has Emerged

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

The long-awaited sequel to the PlaySation Portable was announced by Sony during their E3 Expo press conference.  Showing off a 5-inch multi-touch organic light emitting diode (OLED) as the front display and a unique multi-touch pad on the rear. There are two analog sticks to enable a wider range of game genres. Combine that with the front touch screen and the rear touch pad, PS Vita offers new gameplay, enabling entirely new experiences.

Sony also announced a partnership with AT&T, which  will serve as the exclusive service provider for PS Vita in the United States. You will also be able to connect online via Wi-Fi capabilities and coordinate connections between the Vita and a PS3.  There is no specific release date as of now, but you can be sure these will fly off the shelves once they hit stores.
