Framerate is bad on the PS3...



Take a look at this neat comparison video between the XBOX 360 and PS3 versions of ZoE HD Collection, so you can decide before if you are planning to buy it!

Konami's Zone of the Enders HD Collection will be released on both the XBOX 360 and PS3 this week in the US.

The port was handled by High Voltage Software (of 'Conduit' for Wii fame), and overall it looks like they didn't do a great job.

First, you should keep in mind that it runs slower than the original PS2 games on both consoles. But, if you are to planning to buy the Collection anyway, take a look at this neat X360 vs PS3 Gameplay Analysis video.

It looks like the PS3 version has the worst framerate:

Because of the loud music.



Microsoft's Surface tablet launched at a midnight event in China this weekend, but it looks like a couple were extremely unhappy with the loud party...

According to Chinese site 'Sina', Microsoft held big launch events in China for its new Surface tablet.

One of them took place at midnight in Beijing this Friday, and might have caused too much noise and affected surrounding neighbors.

Well, the loud music pissed off a grandma, as it was apparently keeping her grandchildren awake —a problem since the next day was a schoolday. So, she went up onto the stage to demand the show to be stopped, but she was quickly pulled away by security guards.

Wii U owners and PC gamers will be out of luck this time around!

Originally rumors the next GTA V will be 'next-gen' but now it is clearly being aimed at the current-gen, no plans for Wii U, and no idea if PC version will be in the works.

Promotional artwork for Grand Theft Auto V has found its way online and it clearly states which platforms the highly anticipated game will be appearing on.

We still need to wait a bit for an official release date from Rockstar but we have at least a timetable for this great game.

Grand Theft Auto V will be coming this Spring 2013 to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

So we can expect more info from Rockstar in November!
