Guitar Hero 5 – Coming Soon!

Guitar Hero 5

Yes! This is real news – a few organisations are reporting that Guitar Hero 5 is due to be released this fall to try and increase its target audience with a whole range of new features (not much news yet on what these are) but there seems to be general focus around so-called ‘social play’. Some examples of new features are the ability to ‘jump’ in and out of songs, change the level of difficulty whenever you want during a song and adding more multiplayer game types such as a scenario where the weakest player in each song is eliminated, leaving just the best.

I like the idea of being able to change the difficulty mid-song.

Iomega Media Xporter Drive – USB Drive compatible with Xbox and PlayStation

Iomega is still around (was recently acquired by EMC) and are producing new products such as the Media Xporter Drive. It is essentially a USB 2.0 portable hard drive that is compatible not only with Windows and Mac PCs, but also with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

This is geared for those homes with those consoles but no media center, media streamer or PC attached to their AV centers. The Media Xporter Drive comes with software that can help you convert your multimedia content for perfect display on your game console. It supports formats such as QuickTime, AVI, VOB, JPG, MP3 and more.

Of course, the Media Xporter Drive is at heart still a hard drive, so feel free to use it just like that too!
