Nintendo Cuts Wii Price to $129.99 USD Before Wii U Launch
Christo [PCD] , Tuesday 16 October 2012 - 09:45:29 //

The new $129.99 USD bundle will be available through much of the U.S. starting October 28

Nintendo will be releasing a whole new Wii bundle in time for the holiday season, and it will only cost $129.99 USD.

The new bundle will feature a black Wii console along with matching black Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk controllers. It will also include both "Wii Sports" and Wii Sports Resort" games on one disc. The sports games include a variety of options like bowling, tennis, baseball, basketball, etc.

"Nearly six years after it launched, people are still attracted to the pure, inclusive fun of the Wii console," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "A new suggested retail price and the inclusion of two great games make it an easy choice for families looking for a great value this holiday season."

The new $129.99 USD bundle will be available through much of the U.S. starting October 28.

The price slash comes nearly a month before Nintendo plans to release its new Wii U console, which is due out in the U.S. November 18. There will be a basic model for $299.99 and a premium model for $349.99. The new system offers features like 2GB of memory, 1080p graphics and a new Wii U GamePad controller.

Logitech Announces Illuminated Keyboard K810
Christo [PCD] , Tuesday 16 October 2012 - 09:42:20 //

Logitech is close to releasing a new illuminated keyboard that will allow you to connect multiple devices to it.

The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 is an upcoming addition to the PC accessory company's keyboard lineup. It allows consumers to connect their smartphone, tablet or PC to it all at one time, and switch between each device with the push of a button.

What's better is that it's compatible with Windows, iOS and Android devices. It's even set up for Windows 8, which will be released on October 26. For instance, consumers can use the keyboard's Windows 8 Start key to make their way back to the Start screen, or the App Switching function helps switch between applications much easier.

The Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 is thin and USB rechargeable, meaning consumers can use the keyboard even when it's charging via the USB cable. It also has an On/Off switch, a battery indicator light and auto-adjusting illumination. According to Logitech, the keyboard has proximity detection that turns on the lighting when a user's hands are aproaching it, and it dims/brightens depending on the amount of light in the room.

Logitech also designed the Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 with real brushed aluminum so that it would match any modern PC, tablet or smartphone.

"It's increasingly common for people to use more than one device over the course of the day, and we saw an opportunity to help ease the transition among screens with the Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard," said Mike Culver, vice president of brand development for consumer computing platforms at Logitech. "Using Logitech's heritage of high quality and reliability, this keyboard combines the funtionality and design people expect with simultaneous multi-device pairing, which they will appreciate."

The Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 will be released in the U.S. in October and Europe in November for $99.99 USD.

Quick Note: Corsair Announces New Force Series GS SSDs
Christo [PCD] , Wednesday 11 July 2012 - 14:18:06 //

New SSDs offer speed and storage capacity

Corsair has gone official with a new line of SSDs sporting toggle NAND and SandForce SF-2200 controllers. The Force Series GS SSDs promise fast overall performance and will ship in capacities of 180 GB and up.

Corsair claims that the random write speeds are up to 90,000 IOPS. The Force Series GS SSDs use SATA 6Gb/s connectivity and support TRIM to help maintain that performance over time. The SSDs are also optimized for low power consumption to help extend battery life when used in mobile devices.

The GS series uses a 2.5-inch form factor and ships with a 3.5-inch adapter for use in desktop computers.

Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Prices Revealed: $39.99 Download, $69.99 via Disc
Christo [PCD] , Wednesday 11 July 2012 - 14:17:12 //

Any version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7 will be eligible for inexpensive upgrade

Say what you will about its touch reforms, and extreme user interface makeover, but Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) is at least moving aggressively to give its customers a favorable price point.

To counter Apple, Inc.'s (AAPL) $19.99 USD Mountain Lion licensing, Microsoft is offering Windows 8 "Pro" for only $39.99 USD via download. A DVD version will be available for $69.99 USD (that's one expensive disc). Clearly Microsoft is trying to funnel customers to its online process, which it hopes will lead to a more pain-free and automated installation.

Comments Microsoft:

We believe that your upgrade experience in Windows 8 will be a breeze by offering a faster experience, a single upgrade path, and compatibility from prior versions of Windows. We’ve continued to listen to our customers and have expanded the ability to download to over 100 countries and 37 languages. We have simplified the Windows upgrade experience with the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant which supports you during your upgrade with everything from selecting your language to pausing your download to built-in compatibility checks - it’s seamless. And if you’re an enthusiast you will have the flexibility to download and control how you upgrade.

Somewhat strangely Microsoft is offering customers who purchase the download the option to purchase a backup DVD for $15. In other words you can order the download and get a DVD via the backup option for $54.99 USD, or pay $15 USD extra to buy it in store.

It seems a bit counterintuitive, to say the least.

Of course if you want to snag a download or disc install be sure to first check that your hardware is capable of running Windows 8. To test that you can grab Microsoft's Release Preview of Windows 8 from here, which comes with a test-phase build of the upgrade assitant.

Windows Team engineer Brandon LeBlanc writes Microsoft is continuing to "drive toward the RTM milestone."

Microsoft Store Officially Posts $99 Xbox 360 Offer
Christo [PCD] , Friday 11 May 2012 - 10:05:08 //

There will be an early termination fee of $250 that decreases after 3 months

The Microsoft Store officially posted an offer for a $99 Xbox 360/Kinect bundle on its website.

Last week, rumors circulated that Microsoft was planning on selling a 4GB Xbox 360 bundle with a Kinect sensor and two-year Xbox Live Gold service subscription. The only catch was that there'd be a $14.99 monthly service fee for the service, but gamers would receive the regular online gameplay features of an Xbox Live Gold subscription along with extra content from cable providers.

The total cost of the two-year bundle is $459, which is a bit of an increase from the current $418 4GB Xbox 360 and Kinect bundle with two years of Xbox Live Gold.

The Microsoft Store online published a redeemable coupon for the $99 bundle today, where offer code 885370366266 can be brought to a local Microsoft store in exchange for the latest deal.

Last week's report also noted that there may be an early termination fee (ETF), but the amount had not been specified at the time. Microsoft has now confirmed that there will, in fact, be an ETF that is set based on the number of months passed after the start of the two-year subscription. If the service is terminated within the first three months, the ETF will be $250. At the fourth month, the ETF is $240. From there, the ETF decreases by $12 each month until it hits $0 at 24 months.
