We’ve moved…

Hi everyone, thanks for being patient. We’re happy to say the wait is finally over. Our top secret project (yes, it was the fully-blown website) is now live, and available at So come in, have a look, put your feet up and get stuck in to the region’s best-selling technology magazine. Still a few bugs, but we’re sure you’ll help us iron those out. Now click this link, and we’ll see you on the otherside.


2K Games to release Dubai-based First Person Shooter?


Our frag-happy pals at MEGamers posted a link to a mysterious new video of an FPS depicting Dubai as a sandy post-apocalyptic wasteland, complete with cameos of Emirates Towers, the Burj Al Arab and the Burj Dubai.

We’ve contacted our sources at 2K Games (who are allegedly publishing the game) for an official response, but as yet have received no word.

In the meantime head over to MEGamers to check out the video and wonder along with us what the PR implications for our fair city will be.

Trustmaster gamepads get the Ferrari treatment

F1 Wireless Gamepad Ferrari F60 Limited Edition-2960719-product1

Keeping the ‘people who go mad over Ferraris, but will never hope to afford one’ consumer bracket happy, Trustmaster has just released a set of wireless gamepads. Branded with your favourite supercar (and sponsors!), the PC and PS3 compatible pads pack a unique metalic design and an individual numbered ID plate. Each costs around US$50. Not quite the same as owning your own supercar, but it’s kinda the same… Right? Wrong.

Xbox 360 Elite price drop

ELITE Console

Microsoft’s not about to let Sony have all the price-dropping fun, and its brought the Xbox 360 Elite down to US$315. That puts the 120GB console within spitting distance of Sony’s newest PlayStation, the Slim (at US$355). Both have similar spec, but the Slim’s diminished size and Blu-ray player are mighty tempting. What do you think?

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is official


Pretty big news from MMORPG kings Blizzard today, they’ve announced the third expansion to the ludicrously popular World of Warcraft. It’s to be named Cataclysm and will feature two new playable races (the cursed worgen for the Alliance, and goblins for the Horde), increased level cap (to lvl85) and classic zones will be totally remade. More information and full press release, after the jump.

Razer Naga looks the part


To be called a ‘gaming peripheral’ keyboards and mice need to offer precision spec, and look the part too. Luckily for Razer and its insane design team, the Naga is spot on. Big mouse and logo? Check. Extra buttons? Check. LEDs that give everything a blue hue? Check. And it even packs a whopping 5,600dpi laser sensor with over 500cm per second max tracking speed. If you need to improve your game, or think it’s cheaper than buying a blue lamp for your desktop, it’s available now for US$80.

Sony PSP to get digital reader (and comics)


Apart from that big little anouncement about the PS3 slim yesterday, Sony pulled something else out of the bag that we weren’t expecting. The PSP is getting a digital reader. The service is available for both the PSP-3000 and PSP Go, giving users access to a whole host of media. It’s due to launch in December with digital comics (Marvel is a big partner). We’re looking forward to giving this a go, but what do you think? Does the PSP’s diminutive screen have what it takes?
