Sony announces Wireless Stereo Headset for the PlayStation 3, supports 7.1 surround sound for games

by 313 comments

So far there was no way to connect a stereo headset directly directly to the PS3. Even if you pair a Bluetooth stereo headset the PS3 would only transmit voice during a multiplayer game but not the game sound. You would then have to rely on accessories such as the Astro MixAmp that connected to the PS3 through the optical audio out and then you can connect your headphones to the device. But not anymore. Sony has announced their own Wireless Stereo Headset for the PS3.

But don’t let the ‘Stereo’ moniker fool you. The headset actually supports 7.1 channel digital surround sound for a more immersive gaming experience. Read more »

Angry Birds launch speed math may surprise you

by 11 comments

As a regular Angry Birds player, the question that comes to my mind repeatedly is “What on Earth is the purpose of the green and white birds?!”. However, Rhett Allain of has completely different things on his mind. Instead of pondering on something along this line, he has decided to find out whether the launch speed of the birds in the game is constant or on the contrary, it depends on the angle you shoot the bird. You see, in real life, the bird would fly faster if you shoot it straight on rather than up in the sky.

And so he set out to find the answer, with graphs and calculations and other horrifying stuff they use to torture kids in school. Read more »
