Japan gets new translucent PS3 controllers

Hey, the PS4 is almost out, so how about some new PS3 controllers? Yay? Yes? No? When you consider backwards compatibility and the upcoming PS Vita TV, PS3 controllers are still relevant. Sony says that a new "Crystal" translucent DualShock 3 controller will come to Japan on December 19th, priced at 5,500 yen. This is a limited release product, they say.

Review: Razer Ouroboros wired/wireless gaming mouse
by Dale North

I've been playing PC games with Razer's Ouroboros wired/wireless ambidextrous gaming mouse for a bit now, trying out everything from MMOs to FPS to casual games. This is one really nice mouse, but it had better be for its asking price of $149.99.

Impressions: Digging into Hyperkin's Pixel Art Controller

Xbox One to ship without headsets

It's been nearly a week since Microsoft announced its decision to scrap their DRM policy -- a decision met with some mixed, albeit mostly-positive reactions. In light of this, many gamers are now prepared to give the Xbox One a second chance, while others may find the $499 price tag a bit too steep. For that price, you'd feel it safe to assume Microsoft would toss in a headset. You'd be wrong.

Mega Man's robo-dog Rush, now in tissue box form

Amidst Capcom's schemes to appease us with Mega Man-themed paraphernalia in the absence of an actual game announcement, I've more or less remained as reserved as could be. When Mega Man Xbox Avatars appeared, I kept my mouth ...
