A new patent submitted by Nintendo details an interesting concept: feedback through the stylus. In effect the stylus would provide rumble feedback of various degrees based on actions taking place on screen. Since rumors have been surfacing that Nintendo is getting ready to unveil the next iteration of the Nintendo DS there could actually be some truth to this. The picture below should give you an idea of how the system would work.

Sony: PSP to See ‘Big, Big Titles’ This Year

The PSP hasn't exactly been the most steady platform in the industry, especially with the outright miserable launch the PSPgo experienced. Industry Gamers recently spoke with SCEA Senior Vice President of Publisher Relations, Rob Dyer, about the current state of the PSP and what Sony is planning to do about it. Dyer explains how piracy has really hurt the PSP but says that they are addressing it. He also promises that "big" games will be coming to the platform this year.

"I think we had a great lineup last year. The biggest problem that plagued PSP was piracy; we have not been able to slow that down," said Dyer. "We think we have some answers going forward, but we're not ready to talk about that publicly at this point. So we're working on fixing that, because that's been a big problem. Publishers, when they put out good games, are not getting the same sales results that they got a few years back. So piracy's been a big issue and we're working on that very diligently to bring about some solutions.

"That said, we still have a very robust lineup this year from third parties on the PSP, starting with Metal Gear Peace Walker," he continued. "I won't go through the whole lineup because I want our third-party partners to make those announcements, but there are some big, big titles coming out this year and you'll see those announcements at GDC, DPS (Destination PlayStation) or E3. We're into the sixth year now on the platform, and that's a long time for a handheld. I think given where we're at right now, we're doing very, very well. But yes, the business has had problems and I think it all stems, candidly, from the piracy."

Street Fighter IV Coming to iPhone

It may sound crazy, but it's happening. Capcom announced today that it plans on bringing Street Fighter IV to the iPhone next month, but it's not your run-of-the-mill port. The company says it has meticulously devised controls that work seamlessly on the device.

Graphically, it's pretty much a watered down version of the console version, but that comes with the territory. Still, it looks good and retains the classic art style.

Ken and Ryu are the only confirmed characters so far, but Capcom says it will be adding both classic and new characters into the game. It will also have Bluetooth multiplayer built in.

PopCap Expects iPad to ‘Change Gaming’

Although some seem skeptical of Apple's new tablet PC, the iPad, indie developer PopCap Games remains optimistic. Although they believe it will be a couple years before it has a major impact, they expect it "will change gaming."

"This is my opinion and I think it's going to be phenomenally successful," said PopCap co-founder John Vechey in an interview with Eurogamer. "I really do. It's very simple; it's not like it has a magical set of features, just a great package.

"I think it will change gaming," he added. "Here's this new device that gets to more people with a really great e-commerce model attached to it. It's really easy to buy on the iPhone -- that's part of what makes it successful.

"The iPad would be perfect for real-time strategy. You can't have this really immersive gaming experience but it may actually be more fun than a lot of different game experiences you can get with a PC or console."
