Motorola Xoom and Nintendo 3DS are Redefining Technology

The Nintendo 3DS was released this weekend and is available both in-store and online at P.C. Richard & Son! Here’s why we love this device:

Nintendo 3DS

Play portable games for the first time in 3D without glasses and immerse yourself on a whole new plane. The level of 3D you experience (or playing the traditional 2D) is entirely customizable via a slider on the right-hand side of the top screen.

In addition to the familiar + Control Pad and button controls found on previous Nintendo hand-helds, Nintendo 3DS now also includes a Circle Pad, which provides a full 360 degrees of direction, giving it the freedom and precision needed to play games in 3D worlds. A built-in motion sensor … Read more...

5 Easy Games for Platinum PlayStation Trophies

For me, a big draw of purchasing a PlayStation title is for the trophies. Trophies are PlayStation’s achievement system to show off how much you’ve completed in a game.

Obviously, some platinum trophies are more difficult to get than others. Here are 5 smooth-sailing platinum trophies you can earn:

1. Burnout Paradise

This is an enjoyable game to get platinum in and will take anywhere from 20-30 hours of total play time. Make sure you have the EyeToy, since you’ll need it for the “Send … Read more...
