Playstation 2 is a popular gaming console. If you are lucky, the gaming console won`t trouble you for 2-3 years. But sometimes, you will boot up your system and you will find an error message that reads: `Read Error`.

Sometimes, after the error message, you are able to play some DVD movies but you can never load some others, or you can play the PS1 games and not the silver coloured games of PS2. Such issues may not indicate serious errors and you can fix them with some minor adjustments with your Playatation 2. However, when the issues look too big for you to handle, a few simple techniques can help you overcome these problems. Take a look at most of the common technical issues that your playstation2 gadget may be faced with.

Dirty and scratched disc:

Problematic discs are always main reason why you get `Disc Read Error` message on your Playstation 2 gaming console. The PS2`s laser bounces off the disc instead of reading the information if it finds dirt or scratch on the disc. While inserting the disc into your PS2, make sure that the disc is free of dirt or scratches. Bottled water and disc-washing detergent can be used to clean them up and then rinse them off. The scratches are repairable. If cleansing the discs doesn`t work, you can use a wax-based furniture polish to fill in the scratches or you can select the option of buying a commercial disc-repair kit to get that done.

Cleaning the laser:

Sometimes, the dirt on the laser can lead to the error messages. You can get access the laser by opening the Playstation 2 case. Remove the disc tray after unscrewing all the screw and clean the laser-emitter. You can use cotton swans dipped in lens cleansing fluid o do this. After reassembling the case, turn the Playstation 2 on to test it by inserting the disc.

Laser ajustment:

Re-aligning the laser is another process if you fail to fix the error after cleaning the laser. Open the Playstation 2 case and you will find the laser wheel which is a hite plastic wheel with notches all around the rim. Adjust the wheel of the laser to its lowest level.

Sometimes the discs work best in upright position. So try to place the system in vertical position putting it on the base.

There are some other complicated errors that are not easy to fix unless you are taking your PS2 to the authorized dealer. Of course there are some other problems that you can fix if you follow the PS2 repair guide. It will provide you with all the details about fixing the gaming console along with the photographs of the system, tool lists and simple and sit by bit instructions about what you need to do. However, if your PS2 is under warranty, you should think of cracking the seal to fix the error.

While repairing your PS2 you will have to open some of the parts such as the, disc tray and work with some delicate parts of the system. So you must be careful about not bending or breaking any of the internal parts as you are taking the device apart. However, remember that you are performing the action at your own risk. If you are not comfortable with any of the work, you better visit any authorized dealer. Don`t forget to unplug the console before opening the system.

The continuous developments in gaming technology are giving new makeover to gaming consoles. So it is better to follow the instruction given in the guides.

Nintendo-Wii, the seventh generation video game systems, was launched by Nintendo in September 2006. The Wii video system pronounced `we` gather people of all ages and experience, together to play. The evocative name coupled with classic features, Nintendo Wii, has caused lot of ripples in the video game industry and it targets to broader section of people than occupied by Sony`s PlayStation 3 and Microsoft`s Xbox360. As of December 31st, 2007, 20.13 million of Nintendo Wii has been sold.

The current package includes the following: Wii console, remote with strap, one Nunchuk, AC adaptor, composite A/V cable, console stand, sensor bar and stand, two AA batteries and sports game.

The most extraordinary feature of this gaming console is the wireless controller, the Wii Remote and the WiiConnect 24. Measuring 1.7 x 6.2 x 8.5 inches (44 x 157 x 215.4 mm), and weighing only 2.6 lbs (1.2 kg), Nintendo wii comes as the smallest home gaming console and lightest among the three major players of the seventh generation gaming consoles.

The Wii has a powerful 512 MB internal flash memory, two number USB 2.0 ports and a slot provided for SD memory expansion. The SD card can be used for a variety of purpose, for example, as a back up for saved game data and downloaded virtual console games, for uploading photos, for creating customized music in the game, etc.

The heart of the system`s technology is a processing chip developed along with IBM and graphics chip from ATI. The processor chip is named as `Broadway` and the graphics chip is named as `Hollywood`. It uses a single, self loading media bay that plays both Nintendo Gamecube discs as well as 12 centimeter optical discs required for the new system.

The magical Wii remote has some striking features. The accelerometers located inside the controller and infrared detector to sense the position in 3D space can measure movements at all speeds and all directions. In a driving game it serves as your steering wheel. In Tennis game, you can use this as your racket to swing away and there are many more examples. The controller has expansion port for use with accessories as well it has force feedback `Rumble` features. The Wii Remote also has a small speaker at the center, allowing players to hear sounds programmed directly into the controller.

If you prefer the feel of a traditional controller, you can connect an adapter which is available and easily fits over the Wii`s remote.

The Wii console is backward compatible with Nintendo Gamecube software. The console can communicate with internet even when there is no power. It can also communicate with Nintendo DS wirelessly without any accessories.

The WiiConnect 24 allows download to players via the Internet. The downloadable items may include weapons, new level costumes, etc. WiiConnect 24 while keeps Wii on all day long, uses minimal energy. However players can deactivate this at any time.

Wii`s operating system interface is divided into a number of smaller channels, designed similar to the television channels. The channels are graphically displayed in a grid and can be easily navigated using Wii Remote. A short list of the available channels is as follows: forecast channel, photo channel, news channel, virtual console channel(s), Wii Shop Channel, internet channel, Wii message board, everybody votes channel and disc channel.

While playing offline, a maximum of four controllers can be used in Wii. Rather than focusing only on a costly technology, Nintendo is looking forward to put an emphasis on gameplay and innovation with Wii and company`s intention is to reach out to everybody including amateurs.

Last month, at an MIT Northern California event, we discussed what specific applications might take computer-based brain training to a new level, and highlighted the potential to test and improve Driving Skills.

Assessing and improving driving skills would be a top candidate, given both the well-defined nature of the need and the appearance of programs with growing evidence (both scientific and real-world) behind.

Along these lines, the New York Times just published an article, titled “Are You a Good Driver? Here’s How to Find Out”. A few quotes:

– “COULD a video game make you a better driver? More important, could computer software prevent teenagers from making fatal mistakes or even weed out older drivers whose debilities make them crash-prone?”

– “There are already programs like AAA’s Roadwise Review (about $15), which is intended to help older people evaluate their driving.”

– “There are other programs that will test mental agility and then use subsequent computer training sessions to improve a driver’s skills. One such program is an online application called DriveFit ($89), which was developed by CogniFit, an Israeli company specializing in cognitive training software. DriveFit uses visual and memory tests to measure 12 driving-related cognitive abilities.”

A question we often get when talking with insurance companies, “So, can we really train drivers to act smarter behind the wheel”? Well, it depends of what “smarter” means (we are not aware of brain training programs to make drivers avoid alcohol, or sleep-inducing medicaments, before driving), but there is growing evidence that specific cognitive skills that are important for driving can, indeed, be trained, resulting in better driving outcomes.

A key research reference: the published studies by Dr. Karlene Ball and Dr. Jerri Edwards. We had the fortune to interview Dr. Edwards recently, and this is what she had to say when I asked her to explain the results of their 2003 Human Factors paper (Roenker, D., Cissell, G., Ball, K., Wadley, V., & Edwards, J. (2003). Speed of processing and driving simulator training result in improved driving performance. Human Factors, 45: 218-233):

– “Our goal was to train what is called the “useful field of view.” The useful field of view is a measure of processing speed and visual attention that is critical for driving performance, and one of the areas that declines with age. It has previously been shown that this skill can be improved with training, so we wanted to see what effect it would have on the driving performance of older adults, and whether the training would be more or less effective than a traditional driving simulation course.

– For the study, we divided forty-eight adults over fifty-five years old into two intervention groups of twenty-four people each. Each group received twenty hours of training. One group was exposed to a traditional driving simulator, where they learned specific driving behaviours. The other one went through the cognitive training program.

– Both groups’ driving performance improved right after their respective programs, but most benefits of the driving simulator disappeared by month eighteen.

– The speed-of-processing intervention helped participants not only improve “useful field of view,” the skill that was directly trained, but it also transferred into real-life driving, and the results were sustained after 18 months. And, by the way, the evaluation was as real as one can imagine: a 14-mile open road evaluation.

– Faster speed-of-processing seemed to enable adults to react better to unexpected events that require a fast response and to reduce by 40% the number of dangerous manoeuvres on real roads (defined as those that required the training instructor to intervene during the evaluation).”

Note: the program used in that study, called Visual Awareness, was recently acquired by Posit Science Corporation.

In short, more likely than not, I’d reply YES to the question used to open the New York Times article. A well-designed video game CAN make one a better driver.

Of course, this is an emerging field, and much more research needs to be done before applications become mainstream, but the field certainly deserves more attention, research dollars, and engagement by insurance companies to design and conduct real-world trials.

Allstate: what about spending just a fraction of your scary ad campaign ad campaign budget in exploring additional potential solutions?

The concept of xbox 360 was conceived by Microsoft in early 2003 and conceptualized in co-operation with IBM, ATI and SIS. This is a second video game console and the system allows the players to download Arcade games, demos, trailers, TV shows and movies.

The system was launched in Nov 2005 in three major regions – Europe, Japan and USA. The demand was stupendous and was sold out completely within a short span of its release. The gaming console competes with Sony Playstation 3 and Nintendo`s WII as part of seventh generation video game console.

There are three versions of Xbox 360: Arcade, Premium and Elite. Each version is backed by its own set of features, accessories and technology like wireless controller, re-chargable battery case, snazzy face plates incase the standard plain surface becomes too boring. Generally all three include hybrid, composite and component cable, a detachable 20GB hard disc drive which comes with game demos, video clips, and a free Live Arcade game.

Initially it started with the code name Xenon motherboard and subsequently re-engineered to Zephyr.The latest upgradation is a Falcon motherboard with an improved GPU heat sink. Right now the production unit is working on the next hardware refresh – GPU + CPU on the same BGA package.

The Xbox live arcade is a service that offers much more than simply downloading video games! The console actually throws up new original games, such as Assault Heroes other than the previous ones like MS Pac-Man.The Xbox video market place is an exclusive video store which can be assessed through the console. It allows the users to view HD TV Shows and Movies.The system also supports audio playback where the users may play back their own music with an interactive visual synthesizer. Pictures and slideshows can also be displayed with various transition effects by this system. These features make the Xbox a favorite of adults too along with the kids!

It is also interesting to note in this context that for a new game designer it is highly recommended that you download XNA Game Studio Express; it is an exclusive game which has been designed for easy creation of games for both Xbox 360 and windows. For developing Xbox 360 game you have to subscribe to the Creators Club apart from having Xbox 360 which has a hard drive.

In UK, the gaming console has been enabled to display BT vision, video content.The lastest video game Burnout 3 is available and till date Halo 3 is Xbox`s latest best selling game.

Xbox 360 was launched to capture the market before the arrival of Sony Playstation 3. This premature market entry had left some flaws in the hardware system undetected thereby earning itself negative publicity. However, newer designs have been introduced, and Microsoft has installed new heat sink to reduce overheating which ensures that the game console unit will last many years. Technically speaking, keeping the gaming system cool may lead to a longer lifespan of the gadget. Along with this, Microsoft has also extended the warranty period to three years in the Xbox gaming console.

So Cataclysm finally came out, I’d been waiting for over a year on the cataclysm release date to finally get here. Me and a friend decided to go to a midnight release party at gamestop. The party was pretty gay but we didnt mind because we just wanted to get in and out to go play cataclysm. We did the digital download so the game would be ready to play, but I like to have a hard copy of Blizzard games for keepsakes.

My friend had purchased Dugi’s ebook. It’s a WoW Cataclysm guide. I’m not a fan normally of leveling guide ebook’s but I was so impressed with this. I play to win, point blank. Alot of players say they are playing for fun blah,blah,blah. But I like to win. I’m a very competitive person. I’m also the kind of guy that wouldnt normally buy a game guide. But when dealing with a game that is this competitive and this time consuming a guide like this can literally save days of my time. There are 5100 quests covered. The new cataclysm talents are there with a description. He goes over and covers each in detail. There are 5 different leveling guides in it, I was really impressed at how much effort he put into this. It saved me hours and hours of time. PvP, heirlooms, and all the new instances are completely covered. Their are video tutorials for everything.

There is even in game addons that give you step by step instructions. For example, you choose the quest your wanting to do the addon completely guides you there. I got from level 80-85 in four days doing this shit.  It explains templates for each class talent combination. Explaining in detail the changes that were made with the implementation of cataclysm. Daily quest guides. The ingame addons are amazing. So in conclusion this ebook was definitely worth my $30. It saved me days of needless wandering and I value my time.
