DEAL – Kindle Fire HD 8.9 – £127 delivered

Another tablet deal, this time its for the previous generation Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch tablet. Upon UK release, this was one of the highest resolution tablets below 9 inchs, featuring an above Full HD 1920×1200 resolution, which is good even today. The screen is beautiful and ideal for LoveFilm (now Amazon Instant Video) and reading magazines. At £127 you are getting a fully supported full size tablet for 7inch tablet price. So what is the catch? Well the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is not the latest Kindle Fire, which is the HDX range. If you are a hard core gamer, then this might put you off as its 1.5GHz dual core processor isnt a match to the Nexus...

Gaming History Source – Great Retro YouTube/Dailymotion Channel

Remember the games of your youth, whether on C64, Amiga, Mega Drive or Coin-op arcade memories, well the YouTube/Dailymotion channel Gaming History Source features back to back videos of gaming classics (and obscure memories) showing comparisons between all the versions at the time. Sure to end playground feuds from 1990 about whether the Amiga version is better than the rubbish Atari ST (guess what camp I was in). I’ve included a bunch of my favourites from the time below. If this has interested you in playing some retro games, then why not grab a brand new Wireless Megadrive with 60 games! It comes with two wireless 6 button Mega Drive pads, so no screwing over your friends with a...

PlayStation 3 Controllers Compared – Dual Shock 3 vs MLG vs Gioteck SC1

With a lot of people getting the bargain priced and game rich PS3 recently, myself included, I thought I’d look at what is the best controller for you if you have come from an XBox 360 or just wanted a change from the PlayStation 3 Dual Shock?  While you will eventually get used to a controller no matter what, its nice to feel comfortable and precise, especially in sports and FPS games. With this in mind I have three different controllers on test, which are very different in styles while (at present) coming in at around the same price.  We have the official Sony PlayStation Dual Shock 3 but with ORB Analogue Thumb Grips (£1.25 Amazon UK) to make the...

AMD A10-7850K Real Gaming Benchmarks Appear

I have added to the original article on the A10-7850K the videos below, but incase you didnt see that, here are a collection of real benchmarks from people with the A10-7850K in their system. All these videos are running the fast 2133MHz RAM which is required to get the most out of the GPU. Overall impressions are more favourable than first expected! Being able to run Battlefield 4 on ultra, even if only at 720p is very impressive for a £130 APU. Likewise Skyrim on high at 1080p running at over 40fps average is mighty. It really reinforces the fact that the A10-7850K is perfect for a budget gaming PC / Steambox. The quest for 1080p on ultra at...
