BlackBerry gets its game on at BBW

One of the things BlackBerry has never really had going for it, is a deep games catalog. Now, that isn’t about to change in one fell swoop, but things are about to get a lot better at BlackBerry World 2012. RIM’s head of gaming, Anders Jeppsson, took to twitter to let the world know about the impressive pile of titles heading to the PlayBook and BlackBerry 10. The biggest names are certainly Jetpack Joyride, from Halfbrick (the studio behind Fruit Ninja), and Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. Other games in the pipeline include Galaxy on Fire 2 and Star Marine, while Tomb Raider fans can get down with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light starting today. Keep an ear out for more to hit during this week’s BBW.

LG plans to launch a ‘thinking smartphone’

Friday, April 6th, 2012

LG has yet to find the same success in the smartphone market that Samsung, HTC and Motorola have seen, but the company’s managing director Kwon Bong-suk told a Korean news website that LG will soon introduce a game-changing “thinking smartphone.” The executive confidently stated that the next mobile innovation doesn’t necessarily have to come from Apple, saying that LG can identify with the “universal value” that all consumers seek. Unlike its competitors, LG will refrain from adding more features and entertainment options to its devices, instead looking to build a product that will be responsive to a user’s particular needs. Bong-suk also noted the importance of the low-end market and said the company is interested in releasing a smartphone for $100. Despite the low price, Bong-suk says LG won’t compromise on the quality of the user experience. The director concluded by saying that “preparations for the development of the thinking smartphone are underway.”

No, it’s not the noise of an air-raid siren. It’s Panasonic’s bold return to the smartphone game. Eluga admittedly isn’t the most attractive of appellations, but in the flesh it’s drop dead gorgeous. It’ll arrive as the P-04D in Japan on NTT DoCoMo on the 29th of this month, while Panasonic’s European site now teases that it’ll arrive in that continent in April. Oh, and if anyone gives you stick about the name, just remind ‘em that its meatier older brother will be along shortly.

EverQuest turns 13, blows out the subscription candles (video)

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

EverQuest? More like Ever-cost — until now that is. The popular subscription-based game has dropped the need for recurring charges as the franchise marks its thirteenth year on the scene. If you’re still set on forking out that $14.99 for full access, you can, but there’s now a one-time $5 silver membership as well as the totally free option. Of course, it’s free as in beer, with parts of the game restricted (only four character races and classes etc) meaning it mightn’t be long before you’re opening up the wallet again. But, if this doesn’t turn you off, saving up for another classic just got a lot easier.

Gunze’s new touchscreen tech knows who’s touching it

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012
Gunze

Touchscreens can’t differentiate between you, your friend or your cat. Truth is, they’re actually amazingly simple pieces of technology without much in the way of brains. A new type of display shown off at the International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference in Tokyo last week does imbue the panels with at least enough smarts to tell people apart. Gunze Ltd pairs a special capacitive screen with electrodes, which a user touches with one hand while interacting with a game or app. The immediate use would be for table-top arcade games, which would differentiate between up to four different players based on what particular circuit they complete when touching the screen. We wouldn’t be shocked if a version of the tech started showing up in multi-player video poker machines and bar games relatively soon.
