POST A COMMENTNintendos 3 DS gets You Tube App but not 3 D video support By Charles Gantt More News Gaming Consoles Posted 8 hours 49 mins ago Nintendo 3 DS users have been asking for a You Tube app since its release and today You Tube has officially arrived on the handheld gaming console. At the moment the app is only available in North America and Europe and it is unclear when Nintendo will expand to other regions. The app allows You Tube Videos to play on the 3 DS top screen while the lower screen shows related content. Playback is controlled via button on the device including the L and R shoulder buttons. Unfortunately Nintendo chose not to include any support for 3 D video playback which limits the content available on You Tube by some but not significantly enough to matter. It was an interesting choice though as the 3 DS is know for its 3 D capabilities.

A newly released report from Info Scout is suggesting that Microsoft took home the majority of console sales during Black Friday. The retail analytic firm gathered data from about 83 000 shopping receipts and the figures state that the 499 Xbox One topped sales at both Walmart and Target. In fact Microsoft garnered both the top and second spots with the Xbox One capping 31 percent of the Black Friday market share. The Xbox 360 managed to hold onto 30 percent which means Microsoft held 61 percent of console sales on Friday. The report lost Sony as holding a mere 30 percent of sales with the PS3 and PS4 capping 15 percent each.
Nintendo managed to grab a measly 7 percent with the Wii U accounting for 6 percent while the Wii walked away with barely 1 percent. What does this mean for the PS4 Since it has been released for a several weeks now I think that many of its big sales numbers are over and Microsoft led sales due to the close proximity of its Xbox One launch combined with massive discounts on Xbox 360 units.

As the comet approached perihelion it seemed to take a quite sharp turn into the sun and hours passed without any sign of the ball of ice and rock. Shortly after many had declared ISON dead a glimmer of hope appeared in the form of a bright v shaped cloud of dust that was heading away from the sun.
Many though that a fraction of ISON may have survived and that just a rocky nucleus was all that was left. If true ISON could have flared back up to naked eye visibility once it was far enough away from the sun to not be out shown by the suns glare. Unfortunately what we though was a solid intact nucleus turned out to be fragments of the comet that were rapidly disintegrating and new images have shown that the bright dust trail left by ISONs remains have began to fade into obscurity. As of today the official word appears to be that ISON has met its fate and was mostly vaporized upon its entry into the Suns coronasphere. Continue reading Comet ISON is no more new images show that it has fizzled out (full post)POST A COMMENTSteam saw more than 7 million concurrent users online yesterday By Charles Gantt More News Gaming Posted 16 hours 47 mins ago Microsoft Nintendo and Sony would like you to believe that PC Gaming is dead and the only way to have a good experience with next gen games is to purchase a console but new figures in from over the weekend proves that PC gaming is here to stay.
