Basically for all the Technology Enthusiasts out there.
Whatever is you topic of interest, ranging from PCS to Gaming and Consoles and any form of hardware or any news on upcoming products.
Last year we had some pretty exciting and interesting developments in the gaming industry. In early '04 the GPU wars continued with the unveiling of a new generation between ATI and NVIDIA’s new line of cards. Later in the year the battle of handhelds were contended by two giants in the industry, Sony and Nintendo with the PSP and DS. The PSP eventually will most likely come out on top but Nintendo had a different vision for its handheld with the idea of going back to traditional gaming. While this is a very good idea in my opinion, many consumers will be attracted to the graphics which are similar to the PS2. As only the DS has been released in the US there is a limited basis for a complete comparison. Nintendo already has a strong library of games for its DS which will be its most valuable asset in its fight against Sony who has already replaced them as the home console synonymous with the word "console" itself.
This big fight carded for this year is probably on a larger scale than any of last year’s.
Microsoft will go up against Sony this year as both are planning to release their new line of consoles all equipped with next generation technology. Gaming on the home console will be taken to new heights as Bill Gates has said that the new Xbox 2 (Xenon is the rumored name) is all part of Microsoft’s vision for a digital lifestyle and will support media integration and PC connectivity. From the little information that has been gathered, the PS3 (most likely it will be given a new name) looks as it will be superior to the Xbox but nothing is for certain! The next series of graphics chips from NVIDIA, following on from the current 6-series, will include the custom chip that is being licensed to Sony for the PS3, while ATI has also developed a new specially designed GPU for the Xenon console. It looks as if the PS3 will be released sooner than the Xenon although it may take up to 18 months before either is released. Either way it looks like it will be a very interesting year to see how each company roll out their new consoles.
