Republic of Gamers (ROG) releases the ultimate 27-inch WQHD gaming monitor with exclusive gaming features, design touches, and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology

ASUS today at CES announced a new monitor that's 27 inches of 2560x1440 and 120Hz goodness, plus it comes with the new NVIDIA G-Sync technology built in. This is now the ultimate PC gaming monitor, but it comes with a premium price too... $800

Looks good...

ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

This sounds great, but I would like to see a 24 inch version as 27 is just a tad too big for my desk, especially with multiple monitors. Of course, I'd like to see it come down in price too, but I'm sure that will happen with time.

The full release:

Las Vegas, USA (6th January, 2014) — ASUS today announced the ROG Swift PG278Q 27-inch gaming monitor. The Swift PG278Q features a WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, fast 120+ Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and a full range of ergonomic adjustments. It also features ASUS GamePlus and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technologies that are designed to deliver the ultimate gaming experience.

Experience Immersive Gaming and Outstanding Visuals

Say goodbye to motion blur and lag with 120+ Hz refresh rate and 1ms response times for a competitive advantage in all your games, thanks to smoother gameplay and on-screen responsiveness.  The ROG Swift PG278Q also features GamePlus, an exclusive ASUS feature.

GamePlus is an OSD overlay that enables crosshair and timer functions to be displayed on the monitor. Gamers can select from four different crosshair types to suit the gaming environment, while the timer function allows players to track elapsed time in real-time strategy games. These tools allow gamers to practice and improve their gaming skills.

The ROG Swift PG278Q provides an array of options that include DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output, dual USB 3.0 ports, VESA wall mount capability and a versatile stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment for an ideal viewing position while playing the latest game titles.

The smart cable management feature rids your desktop of tangled wires, while the super narrow 6mm bezel ensures the ROG Swift PG278Q is an ideal choice for seamless multi-display gaming setups. Another nod to gamers and improving the user experience is a 5-way joystick that allows the user to easily navigate the OSD and make quick monitor adjustments.

The World’s First and Fastest WQHD Monitor powered by NVIDIA G-SYNC™

The ROG Swift PG278Q is also the world’s first WQHD monitor powered by NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology. NVIDIA® G-SYNC™, a breakthrough in display technology, synchronizes the display’s refresh rates to the GPU. The ROG Swift PG278Q eliminates screen tearing, minimizes stutter and input lag to deliver the smoothest gaming experience possible. With G-SYNC™ technology objects look sharper and more vibrant, while gameplay is more fluid and responsive.

DiveKick coming this spring to PS3, Vita, and PC

By: BatRastered Jan 22, 2013 | 47 Views | 2 Comments

The game that won our Jimmy Gem milk carton award, finally releases some news. It's coming out this spring for the PS3, PS Vita, and PC. No word on XBox or pricing.

Here's the full press release.

DIVEKICK TO DEBUT IN SPRING 2013
Iron Galaxy Studios announces plans to release the one true fighting game on numerous platforms

CHICAGO – January 22, 2013 –Iron Galaxy Studios is teaming up with One True Game Studios to release Divekick, a unique fighting game available in spring 2013 for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system and PC.

Initially developed as a parody of fighting games by Adam Heart, the Editor-in-Chief of Shoryuken.com, Divekick gained notoriety in the community for its surprising depth and lack of a control stick. Divekick’s two-button controls and precise timing soon made it a staple in competitions. Shortly after its debut to long lines at Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 8 in May 2012, Heart wanted to bring the game to a wider audience and launched a Kickstarter campaign in June 2012 to finish its PC release. The campaign reached its funding goal in less than one month.

After seeing the success of Divekick’s Kickstarter campaign and the excitement generated at fighting game tournaments, Iron Galaxy fell in love with the game and offered their assistance and development expertise (Street Fighter III: Online Edition, Marvel Vs. Capcom: Origins, Darkstalkers Resurrection) to bring Divekick to a broader audience and help realize its full potential. The fully-funded Kickstarter was cancelled, and the new collaboration has resulted in the game being equipped with GGPO-powered online support, a fully-fledged single-player campaign, and many other features.

“Once I played Divekick, I knew I had to steal it from its creator and reap the benefits for myself,” said Dave Lang, President of Iron Galaxy Studios.  ”I look forward to seeing Divekick Cyber Athletes on cereal boxes in the near future.”

One True Games Studios is led by fighting game experts including Adam “Keits” Heart. “Divekick is good at two things: teaching some of the basics of fighting game to players of any skill, and ending friendships. I partnered with Iron Galaxy because I know they love these things as much as I do.  They also gave me large burlap sacks filled with cash, which certainly didn’t hurt,” said Heart. ”This game was made by the community, for the community, to completely tear apart the community.”

Iron Galaxy began as a small team of industry veterans working out of their basements in 2008, and has grown into a fifty person technology powerhouse with studios in Chicago and Orlando. With multiple titles shipped across all current console, PC, and mobile hardware, our clients and partners rely on Iron Galaxy’s expertise and track record to execute their most trusted brands.
