Max Payne 3 Announced For Next Winter 73

tordavis writes with news that Rockstar Games has announced Max Payne 3 is in the works for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. It's currently planned for this coming winter. Quoting the news release: "'We're starting a new chapter of Max's life with this game,' said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. 'This is Max as we've never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation.' Since leaving the NYPD and New York itself behind, Max has drifted from bad to worse. Double-crossed and a long way from home, Max is now trapped in a city full of violence and bloodshed, using his weapons and instincts in a desperate search for the truth and a way out."

Submission + - SPAM: NVIDIA and Microsoft Collaborate On Ion SFF PCs

MojoKid writes: "NVIDIA recently announced that Microsoft has validated NVIDIA ION with certified Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) drivers for Windows Vista Home Premium. Additionaly, NVIDIA is working with Microsoft, PC manufacturers, software developers, and Windows eco-system partners to bring ION-based PCs to market by summer of 2009. NVIDIA's ION platform is currently a development reference design that incorporates NVIDIA GeForce 9400 motherboard chipset technology with 16 integrated graphics cores, along with Intel Atom processors, affording the Atom platform significantly more multimedia processing capability including full offload of HD video processing. Small form-factor PCs, HTPC and netbooks products built on Ion technology could offer ground-breaking performance and capabilities that Intel's ultra low power Atom processor doesn't traditionally cater to in it's current implementations."
