Sony Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0: review

Sony Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0: review

Apr 4, 2014

Buying a new headset for your console can be a fraught experience. There are so many different configurations to consider. From stereo and virtual surround sound to Dolby 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound, as well as whether you want to go with a wired or wireless setup. Not to mention all the different makes at prices ranging from £20 to £200+. It can be a...

Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse: review

Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse: review

Dec 6, 2013

Wireless gaming mice definitely have a bit of a stigma to them. I would know, I’ve been perpetuating it for years. I was happy to say that they lag seconds behind wired mice, they’re prone to interruption by phone signals and that they melt the fillings in your teeth with prolonged use. Of course it was all rampant speculation; I’d never want to attach a...

Gioteck GC-2 controller reviewed and…approved?

Gioteck GC-2 controller reviewed and…approved?

Feb 11, 2013

Cheaper than the official option? Check – by ten quid, or thereabouts. Wireless? Check. Sturdy? Check. Rumble? Check. Acknowledges the 21st century by including a built-in rechargeable battery?

This used to be a cheap, wonky, but perfectly serviceable office-style chair that swivelled...

One is specifically for the Xbox 360, whilst the other works with computers, the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Let’s look at the 360 only device first, the EX-03. The EX-03 is a wired headset for...

Giotek AC-1 and DF-1 Xbox 360 Controller Charging Docks

Jun 18, 2012

Controllers and gaming go together like toast and Marmite, Cameron and Clegg, and Pinky and Perky (some might argue that those last two examples are in fact repetition). We spend more time in contact with our controllers than with the actual consoles we covet so much. Yet these controllers are not always treated well by us. They run out of power in the middle of...
