Can the Wii U Survive it's Second E3?

Nintendo has been struggling.  Financially, they've had a pretty hard time of things, but with E3 coming - they really need to get their game in shape.  They need several things in order to make the Wii U successful and after the way they've dropped hardware specs, they need it really bad.  One thing that will make or break the platform is 3rd Party Support.  Without some great exclusive titles, the Wii U could fail - and so could Nintendo.  Oh yeah, and the 3DS needs a bit of help too.  IGN has more details.

What it needs now is strong, sustainable and unique support from third parties. Resident Evil Revelations should just be the beginning of this kind of content, not the sole example. Furthermore, Nintendo needs to attract third parties outside of Japan. The support from companies like Konami, Square and Capcom has truly been remarkable, but Nintendo also needs the type of content that can only come from EA, Activision and Rockstar.

ASUS Transformer Pad 300

TechReport has a look at the latest Tablet to come from ASUS and they put the Transformer Pad 300 up against some competition and find out just how usable this Android 4.0 tablet is.  This comes equipped with Tegra 3 power, and is under $400 making it a great alternative to the iPad - and many other tablets out there.

One of the nicest things about the old Transformer is its industrial design, which is attractive without remotely resembling an Apple rip-off. The Transformer Pad 300 offers a fresh look that's similarly unique and yet completely different.

Chip-Faced with Intel

Moving along today we've got a few Intel CPU reviews to post including one Core i5-3570K CPU at HiTechLegion that comes multiplier unlocked (hence the "K" moniker) and offers some pretty decent performance for the price.

If you want something with a little more punch, the Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge CPU at FutureLooks has a bit more power and is also factory unlocked for your LGA1155 platform.  If you don't believe them, TechPowerUp has the same chip on their bench as well.

The biggest changes can be found in the graphics core. It adds support for DirectX 11, which puts it on the map to play the latest games. Intel has increased the number of execution units from 12 to 16, which by itself will give a nice performance boost. We also see support for less common APIs like OpenCL 1.1 and OpenGL 3.1.

Big GPU Monday + GTX 690

As we keep on pounding through the news bucket, we've got a big pile of graphics cards to get through.  In the mix are are few NVIDIA GTX 690 cards that launched last week.  I'm sure you'll find something you'd enjoy spending money on.

Elder Scrolls Goes Online

It's puzzled me as to why Elder Scrolls hasn't capitalized on the monthly subscription service that we've all come to hate about online gaming (but millions of users pay anyway).  It seems that it is coming and if you are a fan of the Elder Scrolls, you'll want to check out the trailer below.

Samsung Galaxay SIII Announced

In the announcement many Android (and/or Samsung) fans have been waiting for, Samsung has announced the Galaxy SII Smartphone.

The Galaxy SIII will be sporting a Quad-Core 1.4 GHz processor, 4.8 Inch super AMOLED screen, and will come in 16, 32, or 64GB models. There are also a bunch of other features like improved front and rear cameras, upgraded voice recognition (S-Voice), as well as the phone will include NFC communication capabilities. This time around you will get the choice of either dark blue or white for color choices.

As or right now it kinda appears that this will be the biggest competitor to the upcoming iPhone 5. Samsung however will have a decent head start in sales so it will be  very interesting to see how this all plays out in the upcoming months.

Here is a list of a couple site that were lucky enough to get some hands on time with the S3 at the launch event:
