From Daily Tech

The GTX 580 is the most powerful single-GPU card solution, according to early testing. It delivers approximately a 10 percent bump from the GTX 480, but costs about 20 percent more. 
Higher retail prices mean that you spend about 20 percent more to get a 10 percent performance boost

Today NVIDIA officially launched the GTX 580, the first card in its Geforce 500 Series.  Like AMD's Radeon 6000 series, the Geforce 500 series isn't a major architecture design and is still produced on the same 40 nm process by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Ltd.

Want a live tutorial on how to hack an Xbox by the guy who actually wrote the book on it?

If so, you should plan to attend what likely will be the nation's first federal jury trial of a defendant accused of jailbreaking Xbox 360s—installing mod chips that allow the console to run pirated or home-brew games and applications.

Broken people, loaded guns: Ars reviews Medal of Honor

From ARS Technica

Medal of Honor is a love letter to the armed forces. It's a look at Tier 1 operatives, super-soldiers that the game elevates to near-godlike status. These are people who can go anywhere and kill anyone, who are monstrously capable at their job, and whose job it is to enact foreign policy through gun sights. The game takes place in Afghanistan, with no attempt to obscure the nationalities of the various brown people you'll be killing. There's no room for a humanized or complex enemy here; your opponents just chatter away in an alien tongue—until you get close enough to use your knife. God bless us, everyone?

From C/Net News

The first-person shooter genre will morph into more than just a run-and-gun experience, according Guerrilla Games senior producer Steven Ter Heide.

Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Heide said he sees the first-person shooter genre "becoming broader." Instead of simply allowing gamers to work their way through missions through the same basic gameplay, he sees the market segment becoming more of an "action" genre in which the titles borrow concepts from other parts of the game industry to deliver more full-featured play.

The latest content for Left 4 Dead 2 has launched on the Xbox 360. Called "The Sacrifice," the levels show what happened before "The Passing," and is played from the point of view of the Left 4 Dead survivors. On the Xbox 360, it's also 560 Microsoft points, or $7. On the PC it's free, but Valve didn't think that was enough of a hint about their feelings for Microsoft's DLC policies.
