MOGA has unveiled their latest game controllers just ahead of E3. These new controllers will be the MOGA Power Series and they will be arriving with a feature called MOGA Boost technology. This is rather simple, the Boost technology will allow you to stop worrying about the battery life of your device during game play. Simply put, MOGA Boost will make sure to keep your device battery charged.
BlueStacks has announced a new feature for the GamePop game system. The GamePop console was announced a short while back and was immediately thought of as a competitor to other Android game consoles such as the OUYA and GameStick. Of course, in addition to this new feature, the GamePop already had a unique selling point in that it is a subscription based service. Anyway, this latest GamePop announcement is game related and about how it will be able to play iOS games.
NVIDIA SHIELD was more than just a gaming system. This detail was revealed early on and in fact, the SHIELD will arrive running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Given this and given things will not be buried and hidden, this means SHIELD users will be able to do just about everything they can on a regular Android smartphone or tablet. In fact, some of the experience actually looks quite nice.
back in February and means availability for those in the US. A further global rollout is expected, however that is planned for sometime later this summer. Anyway, the Wikipad 7 will arrive priced at $249 and with specs to include a 7-inch display and quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor.
BlueStacks announced the GamePop console earlier in the month and opened up pre-orders immediately. More to the point, BlueStacks were giving a console and controller for free if you signed up for a year long subscription. The subscription is priced at $6.99 per month and includes access to (at present) more than 500 games. The one catch with that offer is how you have to pay -- for the full year up front.
OUYA game console release was previously delayed until June 25th, however that doesn't seem to have stopped those who have one of the already available developer units. We know the OUYA team is friendly towards hacking and modding. In fact, they previously announced a MakerBot partnership that will allow users to create their own cases. More to the point for today though, those developers have already released a working version of CWM Recovery.
Rovio Entertainment has announced their latest venture today, Rovio Stars, which is a mobile game publishing initiative. Basically, this is Rovio shifting from simply offering their own games to putting themselves in a position to push games from others. The name, Rovio Stars seems to be a play on what they intend to do -- publish and in turn highlight games from other developers that they believe have potential.
