Nintendo Launches New Red and Blue DSi

Nintendo's DSi has been overshadowed by the company's 3DS, but that doesn't mean the company will leave the DSi in the dark. Nintendo's DSi was a predecessor to the company's latest handheld, the 3DS. The DSi comes with the same dual-screen design and offers both front- and rear-facing cameras. Unlike the 3DS, however, it doesn't come with glasses-less 3D support.

Earlier this year, Nintendo dropped the price of the DSi to $99 from the earlier $149. The DSi XL, which delivers the same device with larger screens, was brought down to $129.

According to Nintendo, the new red and blue DSi handhelds can be found at retailers "as early as this week." Nintendo already sells several other colors, including black, pink, and a much lighter blue.

Halo 4 First Impressions and Gameplay Footage

Halo 4 puts you back in the boots of the Master Chief from Halo 3. Along with his AI, Cortana, he’s been lost in space before they crash land near a mysterious Forerunner planet. The campaign takes place on an artificial planet called Requiem.

What Halo 4 promises is a move away from the straight-forward first-person-shooter and more focus on mystery, exploration and discovery, think more ‘Combat Evolved’ than ODST. Halo 4 is intended to be the first of a new series of Halo game, named the Reclaimer trilogy – so the story has been designed to be part of a three-game arc from the beginning – with Halo 5 planned to be more dark than this, and six being the conclusion.

All good so far. But for those expecting to be blown away by this latest Halo outing, there may be slight hints of disappointment. First off, Bungie are no longer developing the game. Now it’s 343 Industries - the team behind the latest HD remake of Halo: Combat Evolved. That being said, the Master Chief has never looked better, and the new enemies are interesting-looking, making a refreshing change from the Flood and Covenant.

Microsoft Surface Tablet Unveiled

After days of speculation and rumors, Microsoft's major announcement has just been unveiled at a press event in Los Angeles: a Surface tablet. We suspected the company might be working on its own tablet, and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed the device on stage at Milk Studios in Los Angeles today. Discussing Microsoft's history with Windows, Xbox, and Kinect, Ballmer introduced a video of the company's hardware products over the years before unveiling Windows 8's companion, the Microsoft Surface.
Microsoft's Intel-based Surface tablet will run Windows 8 Pro, with a thickness of 13.5mm, a weight of 1.9lbs, and USB 3.0 support. This particular version will also include magnesium casing and a built-in kickstand, but will ship with either 64GB or 128GB storage. Additionally, the Intel version will include additional digital ink support through a pen that magnetizes to the body of the tablet, and a 10.6-inch ClearType "Full HD" display. Both of Microsoft's Surface tablets feature optional Touch and Type keyboard covers.

Microsoft says suggested retail pricing will be announced closer to availability and is expected to be competitive with a comparable ARM tablet or Intel Ultrabook-class PC. The Windows RT PC will be available at the time of the Windows 8 general availability (expected in October), with the Windows 8 Pro model to ship about three months later. Surface will be available through Microsoft's physical retail stores in the US and through select online outlets of the Microsoft Store.

Netflix App Coming to Playstation 3's in the UK

Netflix still isn't offering a firm date for its launch in the UK, but it looks like some of the final pieces are starting to fall into place. The company's PlayStation 3 app is now hitting consoles across the pond, displaying the message you see above when it's launched. Unfortunately, that's about all we have to go on at the moment, but PS3 users can now at least rest assured that they won't have any waiting to do when Netflix does finally flip the switch -- one more shot after the break.

Price cut saves 3DS- 4 million sold in U.S. in 2011

Nintendo announced today that it sold 4 million 3DS units in the U.S. last year, helping it to edge out total sales of the regular DS family of devices, which hit 3.4 million during the period. According to Nintendo, the handset, which launched in the U.S. in March, outpaced Wii sales during its first nine months on American store shelves.

Just months ago, there was no telling how the 3DS would survive an inordinately difficult U.S. market. In July, Nintendo announced that it sold only 710,000 3DS units worldwide during the three-month period ended June 30. What's worse, just 110,000 of those units were sold in the U.S.

Nintendo announced at the time that it was cutting its 3DS price from $249.99 to $169.99 in an attempt to motivate "anyone who was on the fence about buying a 3DS" to finally dole out cash for the portable. The move worked. In August--the same month Nintendo cut the 3DS' price--sales were up a whopping 260 percent in the U.S.
