Kobo is extending its oncoming tablet release by including options with a higher storage capacity. The Kobo Arc was originally set to be released with an 8GB and 16GB model, but has decided to instead release three versions with memory sizes of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The sudden capacity change could be a response to the Amazon Kindle Fire HD having a maximum of 32GB.
Microsoft's mystery touch device is actually a competitor to Apple's Magic Mouse. Both a leak and a store listing point to the Arc Touch Mouse having its namesake touch surface instead of traditional clicks. It was originally the result of a research project into a multi-touch mouse whose details were published just as Apple was shipping its own device.
THQ chief executive officer Brian Farrell may have given more credence to previous reports that the new PlayStation 3 motion controller device will be named the Playstation Arc. In a call with investors, Farrell referred to the new controller as the Playstation Arc repeatedly, in both his prepared remarks and during the Q&A session that followed.
An earlier report about Sony calling its PS3 Motion Controller the Arc has received more confirmation thanks to a recent report. This evidence is courtesy of a new domain registered by Sony, PlayStationArc.com. The device, due for a fall release date, will be a wand-like controller that will track free-air movement to interact with video games and is rumored to ship with every PS3 system alongside a traditional DualShock game pad.
Sony will reportedly call its motion controller Arc, according to a Tuesday VG247 report. The source of this information wishes to remain anonymous and makes the previous believed name for the system obsolete. Earlier, the system was believed to be called Gem, which was apparently an older internal codename as revealed by EA CEO John Riccittiello and now admitted by Sony.
