Kontrol Freek's Speed Freek and FPS Freek [Product Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The FPS Freek can help you improve your accuracy, but will throw off your timing for fast-paced combat. The Speed Freek doesn't seem to offer any improvement what-so-ever.

The Pros: 

The FPS Freek will definitely help you with tweaking your accuracy, and on the PS3 it improves the feel of the rather small controller.

The Cons: 

On the Xbox the FPS Freek pushes just beyond the comfort zone, and provides a reduced reaction time. The Speed Freek feels awkward, and doesn't seem to offer any benefits to game-play what-so-ever.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been feeding my need for action with a heavy portion of FPS and Driving games. During that period I opted to try out a couple interesting little products from the fine people over at Kontrol Freek. Those two being: the stick-extending FPS Freek, and the half-pipe-inspired Speed Freek. Each accessory is dedicated to specific needs for specific game types, but does adding $14.99 worth of plastic to your Xbox/PS3 controller make a world of difference?

[Product Review] Able Planet True Fidelity NC300B headphones

Overall Feeling: 

The Able Planet True Fidelity NC300B headphones may not have a snazzy name or feature but that doesn’t mean they don’t sound good. The True Fidelity headphones deliver some sharp audio that sounds terrific while listening to music and playing games. With a reasonable price point the NC300B’s are definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for some new headphones.

The Pros: 

They’re really comfortable. The sound quality is really staggering while playing a game and the headphones maintain a nice level of quality while listening to a layered musical track. It may not matter but the packaging is sleek and it’s an added plus that a travel case is provided.

The Cons: 

Some may be annoyed that a battery (which is included in the package) is required to power the headphones. The size, while small and not uber large, may still put some off since they’re not miniscule ear buds.

When it comes to purchasing a good pair of headphones things can become a bit confusing. Unless you’re an audiophile or know exactly what you’re looking for down to precise details nabbing a good pair of headphones can be a bit difficult this day and age. After all aside from the popular brand names like Sony and Bose there are new fangled “celeb” headphones from the likes of music legend Dr.

[Product Review] Are the Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition night vision goggles worth the money? Find out!

Overall Feeling: 

Arguably the best special edition bonus ever created to this date. It's a little pricey for everyone to budget but those who didn't even blink at the price tag won't be upset with their purchase.

The Pros: 

Looks and feels like a pro set of goggles.

Plenty of options for customization with color, intensity, and fit.

Includes a bust of “Soap” MacTavish to display the goggles

Great addition for any collector of gaming items.

The Cons: 

No real depth perception. It's hard to walk around

Would not want to use these for any activities (i.e. Paintballing is a no go...sorry guys)

Is the PSP Go worth picking up?

Overall Feeling: 

The PSP Go is a slick system that works really well when it comes to form factor and design but is held back by a wallet punching price tag. If you're an existing PSP owner it's almost pointless to pick up the Go unless you're ready to abandon your old PSP. Just like the PS3 we're going to have a situation where people won't be picking up the PSP Go because of a price tag that is just ridiculous.

The Pros: 

Sleek design that despite the smaller size feels incredibly good when it's in your hands. The screen is as sharp as ever and doesn't feel too small. And finally the PSP is a system that you can easily take with you since the size of the PSP Go makes it extremely easy and comfortable to put in pockets or bags.

The Cons: 

The price tag. Seriously, the thing is a deal breaker and will surely prevent many from picking the console up. The lack of any new features or key improvements make the PSP Go a console that doesn't have that immediate "I need to get this now" factor.

When it comes to console redesigns Sony really doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of love. A lot of people hated the look of the PS3 Slim despite liking its new slimmer form factor but when it came to the PSP Go almost everyone seemed to trash it.  Now is this a case of people not understanding what Sony is trying to achieve with the PSP Go or are they justified in their disdain for the new addition to the PSP family?

PlayStation 3 Slim review

Overall Feeling: 

The PS3 Slim may not be completely slim as it still has heft to it but the design as a whole works really well. Design wise it's almost a throwback to the PS2 and the new design definitely helps the console to be more accessible instead of it being a giant monolith that people associated with as "the console that costs too much."

The Pros: 

Matte finish comes across really nice; the new Eject and Power buttons are small changes but add a small sense of depth to the design. SpiderMan font is gone.

The Cons: 

Some people will hate the matte finish; logo could've used more of a pop. It would've been nice if it wasn't as wide.

The story of the PlayStation 3 Slim has been an interesting one.  When production photos leaked online in late May reactions to the console was quite mixed.
