    Sony Announces PlayStation Vita, Revolutionary Portable Entertainment Device

    Considering the PSP was PS2-level in terms of hardware... what does this mean fro the PSV? I think this PSV will greatly overshadow the 3DS... its a true next gen piece of hardware.

    Q4 PC Graphics Shipments in a Slump, Competitors Eat into Intel's Lead

    nothing is 'forced'; the reason why a lot of systems use intel IGPs is becuase its simply just cheaper to supply. You get what you pay for and I don't see how intel is in the wrong here... shifting customers away from its own products is not doing business. Mind you, the fact that you can do...

    this is not surprising at all. Here in sydney, there are chains like MSY and IJK and I constantly see a stream of people walking out with asrock boards every time I visit them. They used to just fill the niches between upgrades and do it for a low price instead of trying to shuffle people...
