Thought we should have a thread for all the announcements and news from this years consumer electronics show.

To start - MS has announced they will release Lode Runner for XBLA

One thing you won't hear about at CES 2008: RPG already in production for Xbox 360 successor. I love 4 year console life-cycles. I'm praying EGM is full of shiat on that one.

Texas Instruments is working on 3-D (the kind you wear glasses to watch) DLP TV chips.

Guess I'm the only person paying attention to CES.

Alienware demos it's 16:5 curved monitor.

That's pretty neato, but it would force a set viewing distance from the monitor. Any deviation from the recommended distance would result in distortion, I would think.

If 3-D eventually takes off the way Mr. Cameron thinks it will- that Texas Inst. news sounds cool.
