Harry Monogenis for Destructoid:
Beatshapers and Tribute Games have announced that Wizorb will be made into a PlayStation Minis title and launch on the PSP, PS3 and PlayStation Vita sometime “in June” with a $3.99 price tag.
The Vita version is sold. I tried this game out as an Xbox Live Indie, but couldn’t bring myself to purchase it (a common trait to all XBIG games for me).
It’s a great fit for a handheld.
You can’t count on a publisher to be original or inventive when it comes to our entertainment, but they always seem brilliantly innovative when it comes to selling us more crap. Sony is today’s bright little star, having patented a way to inject commercial breaks into your play sessions.
Sigh. As if the Dashboard ads on Xbox Live—a service I pay to use—weren’t enough.
Television networks are having a busy month trying to stamp out new TV-watching technology, including telling a court that skipping a commercial while watching a recorded show is illegal. Yesterday, Fox, NBC, and CBS all sued Dish Network over its digital video recorder with automatic commercial-skipping. The same networks, plus ABC, Univision, and PBS, are gearing up for a May 30 hearing in their cases against Aereo, a New York startup bringing local broadcast TV to the Internet. EFF and Public Knowledge filed an amicus brief supporting Aereo this week.
What’s next? Putting a camera on my TV to make sure I don’t leave the room while the commercials are on?
The celebration of this was yesterday, but I couldn’t not post it.
For those who don’t follow hockey, or who didn’t follow hockey about two decades ago, or who find themselves wondering why the one Toronto fan in the office has spent all week wearing a black armband and irrationally berating anyone who has nice hair, this Sunday marks the anniversary of one of the most notorious missed calls in hockey. It’s been 19 years since the night Kerry Fraser didn’t call Wayne Gretzky’s high-stick.
Detroit fans have plenty of hate still hanging around for the guy, too. Every time I see him as an analyst on TV I got a little reflexively grumpy.
