iBuypower auctioning ‘Ultimate’ gaming PC for Japan Relief

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: PC / Laptop, Video Games

Want to win a super-powerful desktop and help out those in Japan affected by the recent earthquakes and tsunamis? Boutique system vendor iBuypower, in collaboration with a number of major component manufacturers, is making that possible by auctioning off a top-tier gaming desktop, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Red Cross's Japan relief efforts.

The centerpiece of the system, and by far its most unusual component, is the Zalman GS1200, a full-tower case loaded with features ranging from plentiful fans to hot-swappable hard drives, tool-free installation, and more. The auction system is being built in the only GS1200 case in the United States.

Also present in the system will be two Zotac GeForce GTX 570 video cards in a Scalable Link Interface (SLI) configuration for top-speed video and 6GB of Kingston HyperX T1 RAM. IBuypower will construct and ship the computer, which will also come with lifetime tech support, a warranty covering three years labor and one year parts, and a selection of other "premiums," including t-shirts, backpacks, and other accessories.

Is this the Playstation Phone, or a new platform altogether?

Posted by Patrick Lambert Categories: Handhelds, Rumors

Playstation phone z-system

Earlier this week Engadget came out with some exclusive pictures and various facts about what everyone is now calling the Sony Playstation Phone.However, there are many details that indicate that this can't be a so called "PSP Phone". Some of those details, like the fact that it's running Android, came out right at the front. Since the PSP isn't running on Android, that means each game would need to be converted or ported over, which seems unlikely.

Another such detail came out today, and that is the platform that this new phone seems to be using, something called "Z-System". There isn't much known about it yet, but several people have pointed to the label in one of the leaked shots, and it does seem to indicate that this is Sony's attempt at starting a new platform. Whether it will be successful is a matter of debate, but it's obvious that Sony is struggling with the mobile Playstation brand, as the PSP and PSP Go haven't exactly been runaway hits. Maybe a phone that runs ports of Playstation Portable titles on an Android device running the Z-System layer is just the kick in the pants that they need?

More than half of Facebook users log on to play games

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: Social Media

Wondering why your friends are taking forever to respond to your IMs or wall posts? Chances are they are probably too busy playing Facebook games.

According to a new statistic from AllFaceBook.com, a whopping 53% of Facebook users play games while on Facebook. That’s about 290 million people playing Farmville, Mob Wars, etc. 56 million of these people play FB games daily. To put this in perspective, that’s more people than the entire population of England. This means that you can talk openly about your FB games exploits and more than half the time will be able to spark up a convo based around social network gaming. Interest fact for the guys as well, as 69% of those FB gamers are women. We predict pick up lines to sway drastically into the “So, how many crops do you harvest, girl?” category.

Check out the stats after the jump.

Bleeding Edge TV 362: Playing Catan on Microsoft Surface

We’ve been fans of Catan since we first played it, interestingly enough, on the as an Xbox Live Arcade download. Since then, we’ve enjoyed many hours of the strategic masterpiece both online and in social settings. Recently, we paid a visit to Seattle’s Vectorform, a developer for the Microsoft Surface platform. They gave us a look at their take on Settlers of Catan using the Surface tabletop, and even included a few very cool and interesting real-world peripherals. We quickly realized how interesting Surface can make tabletop gaming. Check out the video above to see what me mean.
