Ghostbusters Game In The Works? Maybe…

Whether it be a mod of Gears of War, a dedicated fan, or a pitch for a game that never came to be, these videos on YouTube have us wanting more… and remind me that I should go back and watch the original Ghostbusters again. Chances are we’ll never see this game on a console, but we can dream, can’t we?

The videos on YouTube feature some Gears-style 3rd-person gameplay, some very nicely lit driving movies and what look like tests of the Bill Murray character model. Be sure to click the jump for the rest of the videos!

Gear Live Gallery: Microsoft Zune Dissected

So we have been playing around with a couple of Zune’s here at Gear Live HQ for a little bit, and decided that we would give you all a peek at the innards of Microsoft’s soon-to-launch digital media player. Jump on over to our Zune Dissection Gallery to get a glimpse of each and every piece that is inside the device that you will all be wanting come November 14.

Epic’s Sweeney Talks PS3 Development, User Content At Tokyo Game Show

UT 2007At the Tokyo Game Show, Epic Games’ Tim Sweeney discussed multi-core development, PS3’s Cell chip, and the possibility of user generated content on the Playstation 3, according to a report from Gamasutra.

Sweeney indicated that multi-threaded development takes “about twice the effort and development cost.” Speaking specifically about Cell, he claimed that development “required about 5 times as much cost and development time.” It seems like Sweeney accepts the fact that for CPU power to grow, they are going to have to go to a multi-core model, but the increased development costs are disconcerting.

Sweeney also mentioned that he was interested in bringing user-created content to the PS3. Sweeney’s comments indicated that Sony might be more favorable to providing user content on the PS3 Online platform than Microsoft. While it isn’t a lock that user mods and levels will be accessible to Playstation 3 Unreal Tournament 2007 gamers, this does seem to be a possibility at this point.

The Laser Sighted Slingshot

Posted by Sparky Categories: Misc. Tech

Laser SlingshotAs excessive as you need it to be: The laser sighted sling shot by Precision Shots. The laser slingshot supposedly improves aim and accuracy while increasing the power at which your projectile is flung at your victim

target. With a $49.99 price tag ($69.99 for the big version) you have to be pretty serious about your Dennis the Menace antics to fork out for this bad boy. I guess this proves the theory that any gadget or gizmo can be improved with the addition of lasers these days.
