Sony DVR creates H.264 files compatible with the Sony PSP
The Sony RDR-AX75 video recorder can store MPEG-4 videos (H.264 encoding) no its 250GB hard drive and burn them to Dual-Layers DVDs, but what really sets it apart is that these videos can be copied via the integrated Memory Stick Duo slot into a card, then replayed “as is” on the Sony PSP portable console. It’s a nice initiative from Sony, one that competitors did not see coming. Note that the Firmware 2.0 is required to use these video files.[Via akihabaranews]Filed in Gaming >Photo-Video..…

Forget the tamagotchi, the Nintendogs are available on Amazon

Forget the tamagotchi, the Nintendogs are available on Amazon
It’s even better than the tamagotchis of the future, and it’s probably cuter. Nintendogs is a video-game for the Nintendo DS portable console in which the player has to train, play and even socialize their virtual dogs. The game uses the wireless capabilities of the console and it is also possible to set the (virtual) dog to bark when it sees another “Nintendog” within the wireless range.$28.95 on Amazon.Filed in Gaming..…

Bluetooth Gamepad – The Chainpus BGP-100

Bluetooth Gamepad – The Chainpus BGP-100
In its weird collapse state, the Chainpus BGP-100 Bluetooth gamepad doesn’t look like it amounts to much. Unfolded, its grotesque features might even put some people off gaming. Its flippers rotate together and click at full extension, although I question the wisdom of having a gamepad that’s Transformer-like in nature. Traditionalists will definitely balk at this offering, as they will not mind sacrificing a wee bit of portability for some beauty.One of the major advantages of its form factor w…

Quantaray Aluminium Carrying Case

Quantaray Aluminium Carrying Case
Now that you have your precious PSP Console, a few among you will seek to get a good case to protect it. I stumbled on the Quantaray Aluminium case while surfing and I have to say that it’s pretty good for the cost: $29.“So why would you carry it (the PSP) in a piece of crap case designed by companies who make carrying cases for toys? You shouldn’t of course, but that’s what all of the PSP-branded cases out there are… The case I found is nothing short of perfection: the Quantaray Small Aluminium…

Pokemon Casewraps for Nintendo Consoles
The Xbox might have Hello Kitty, but what about this GameCube with Pokemon all over it?“Casewraps, saw this market need and filled it with glittering color. And Pokemon. They snatched the licensing rights to the little creatures that would make good roadkill dumplings, and created a whole line of Pokemon wrappable prints. Now you can take your dull Nintendo DS, your uneventful GBA SP, or your gay purple Gamecube, and wrap it with the face of your favorite Pokemon character. Grab your system, wra…
