According to Joystiq, six Dutch gamers set a new Guinness World Record after playing 'Red Dead Redemption' last weekend for 50 hours straight.

PlayStation 3 Gets 3-D Blu-ray and YouTube Support in September

Last month, Sony released the first 3-D games for its Playstation 3 console. Now, according to Joystiq, a firmware update to be released in September will allow the PS3 to play 3-D Blu-ray movies. It should be stated, though, that for now the only 3-D Blu-ray title on the market is the kids' film 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,' and gamers probably won't be snatching those up. But, as more...

Hidden Gems of E3, From Shadow Lands to Wolf Cubs

Assaulted by a major sensory overload, we felt like we saw so much (and missed even more) at this year's E3. With everyone justly excited about 'Zelda' and 'Halo: Reach', a couple lesser hyped titles caught our eye as we perused the aisles. Here's a list of some hidden gems we unearthed, hopefully giving you a leg up on gameplay, before one of these might go on to win Game of the Year....

Essential Sci-Fi Raygun Blasts onto PS3 Peripheral Scene

It's nearly impossible to exaggerate the supreme and unequivocal command that Nintendo holds over the ridiculous, abysmal and periodically awesome add-on market. The company's dominance began decades ago with 'Duck Hunt,' the Power Glove and the Roll & Rocker, and the Wii's motion controllers have only bolstered Nintendo's preeminent peripheral standing. Now that both Sony and Microsoft...

Sony PlayStation Move Gets Priced and September Release

But better than the short wait time is the perfectly reasonable...

Gamers Beware! PlayStation Catastrophe Still Plaguing PS3s

What's Going On? Share The geek meltdown that began last night continues unabated this evening as Sony plods through its PlayStation quagmire, largely due to 2010 being mislabeled as a leap year. The ordeal started when clocks rolled over to March 1st and older (non-PS3 Slim) PlayStation owners began experiencing a myriad of bizarre and unfixable problems, including blocked access to the...

Sony to PS3 Owners: Don't Turn on Your Console

You might have seen our earlier report that, thanks to 2010 being mislabeled as a leap year in the code of some PlayStation 3s, some gamers were experiencing crashes and errors, and were unable to access the PlayStation Network. Well, things just got a lot more interesting -- and scary. The word, direct from Sony, is that owners of non-slim model PS3s should refrain from turning on their consoles...

43-Year-Old Woman Charged With Seducing Teen via PlayStation

Ever wonder what 'The Graduate' would look like if Todd Solondz took a crack at remaking it? We sure have, and we think we found our answer in Oklahoma.
