AMD involved with PS4

"Forbes said that its Read’s job to make sure AMD doesn’t screw up its slate of new products-which includes a hush-hush effort to put its graphics chips in Sony’s still-unannounced new game console. This means that a Playstation 4 could be coming soon, and Sony has dropped NVIDIA’s chips from its console."

Unreal 4 Engine requires 10 times the power

"During a presentation at the DICE 2012 summit, Epic’s Tim Sweeney claims that the new Unreal 4 Engine requires 2.5 teraflops of power for what Epic believes the next generation of graphics running on its engine will look like. To put that into perspective, the current Xbox 360 only yields about .25 teraflops of power. This is clearly not enough to power the future of gaming with the current Xbox 360 console. Of course, you could maybe network 10 Xbox 360s together to get enough power."

Mass murderer was games addict

"Confessed right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik has told police that he was “addicted to computer games,” spending thousands of hours online before he bombed Norway’s government headquarters and gunned down Labour Party summer campers. Newspaper Aftenposten reported that coppers have found logs indicating that Breivik spent even more time on computer games than he’d admitted. He told coppers that he spent around 8,700 hours playing the games between 2006 and 2010. Police found that between November 2010 and April 2011, Breivik spent 500 hours playing “World of Warcraft” alone."

DICE to hire anti-cheat administrator

"After hearing the complaints of the Battlefield community for years, DICE has finally decided to take a new approach to address the cheating that continues to be rampant within the PC Battlefield community. This new tact involves the hiring of what DICE is calling an “anti-cheat administrator” that will work for DICE and whose sole job will be to curb, if not eliminate, cheating in Battlefield titles.

Hackers ban Battlefield 3 players to highlight anti-cheating flaws

"Hackers have banned some players of the popular Battlefield 3 game to send a message to developers at Electronic Arts (EA) that its anti-cheating software is flawed. A junior member of the Artificial Aiming game hacking website revealed that he and his anonymous hacking group are “framing” players to make the controversial PunkBuster software believe they were cheating in game. The group took responsibility for a previous attack in 2011 and said it has already banned more than 150 Battlefield 3 players to show how easy it is for PunkBuster to wrongly block a player."

How the next Xbox could stop you from playing used games

"A recent Kotaku post cites "one reliable industry source" to suggest that the still-unannounced successor to Microsoft's Xbox 360 will somehow prevent used games from being played on the system. The idea remains an unconfirmed rumor, of course, but it's something that members of the game industry have floated repeatedly in the past. It's also a move that would likely find hefty support from publishers looking for a way to stop what they see as erosion of their profits thanks to used games (the reality is a bit more complicated than that, but we won't rehash that old argument here).

Xbox 360 Controller Mod Dispenses Hot Pockets

"Eating while gaming isn't exactly the easiest thing to do, unless you are playing a game with nauseatingly long cutscenes. You may find yourself getting food all over the place or getting killed the second you decide to set that controller down and take a bite of food. Luckily for anybody who can't seem to find the chance to take a break and eat, master tinkerer Ben Heck made the startling discovery that the top of the Xbox 360 controller seems to contour perfectly to a Hot Pocket."
