The Kuro range of plasmas offered such detail, such contrast and such deep, dark black levels that they could reduce a 33-year-old single man to tears of pure joy in less than ten seconds. But despite the Kuro plasmas offering picture quality that was objectively years ahead of their rivals, nobody bought them, because they could snap up inferior (but still decent) TVs from the likes of Samsung and LG at a fraction of the cost. So eventually Pioneer cut its losses and stopped making TVs altogether. It was a sad day for those 33-year-old men. It was a sad day for us all.</p> <p>Well, now the Pioneer name is coming back to TVs. Dixons has announced that it’ll be selling full HD Pioneer-branded models in 40, 46 and 50in sizes in Scandinavia from December.</p> <p>But before you get excited, consider a couple of things: these TVs aren’t Kuros. In fact they aren’t even plasmas – they’re LCDs. Pioneer sold its plasma business and patents to Panasonic years ago, and this partnership with Dixon is almost certainly a marketing exercise from the retailer rather than a reason to celebrate. Should they launch in SG, we’ll be looking carefully at the new Pioneer sets to see if they deserve the name on the front.

And when you can tear yourself away from gaming, the Vita TV streams movies too. It’s also available bundled with a DualShock 3 controller for S$219.</p> <p dir="ltr">The PS Vita Slim will be available in time for Christmas shopping on 14 November 2013, while Vita TV fans will have to practice patience for a while longer as the mini console will only be available on 16 January 2014.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.superadrianme.com/2013/11/12/new-ps-vita-slim-tv-singapore/" target="_blank">SUPERADRIANME</a>]</p> <p><em>Additional reporting by Elissa Loi</em></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="690" height="690" alt="" src="/sites/stuff.tv/files/GODEATER-2.jpg" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Russia says: squat for your subway ticket </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Russia has found a novel way to promote the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics: making subway train passengers exercise to earn a free subway ticket. The Moscow metro has installed a ‘squat booth’ (our name, not theirs) in one station that tasks commuters with performing 30 squats in two minutes. If they succeed, they’re rewarded with a single-journey ticket (normal value: about 60p).</p> <p>It’s all part of the Russian Olympic Committee’s campaign to bring ‘Olympic values’ to everyday life in the country ahead of next February’s events. Other examples popping up in Russian cities include pedal-powered smartphone chargers and transforming buses’ hanging straps into activity-tracking bands.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://news.discovery.com/human/health/muscovites-do-squats-for-free-metro-ride-131109.htm" target="_blank">Discovery</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/pioneer/fully-charged-pioneer-back-tv-biz-and-how-squat-your-way-russian-subway-tickets/news#comments Pioneer PS Vita PS Vita TV Mon, 11 Nov 2013 22:25:21 +0000 Elissa Loi 1429035 at http://www.stuff.tv PS Vita TV could stream PS3 games http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ps-vita-tv/ps-vita-tv-could-stream-ps3-games/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sony&#039;s tiny console could &quot;technically&quot; support cloud streaming of PS3 titles via Gaikai </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony PS Vita TV" alt="Sony PS Vita TV" src="/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/PS-Vita-TV.jpg" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Sony's pint-sized <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ps-vita/sony-launches-new-ps-vita-and-playstation-vita-tv-console/news" target="_blank">PlayStation Vita TV</a> could stream PS3 games from the cloud, as well as streaming PS4 titles direct from Sony's next-gen console.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/stephen-graves" title="View user profile.">Stephen Graves</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ps-vita-tv/ps-vita-tv-could-stream-ps3-games/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/ps-vita-tv/ps-vita-tv-could-stream-ps3-games/news#comments Games consoles PS Vita TV Sony Thu, 12 Sep 2013 11:40:59 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1426592 at http://www.stuff.tv
