Virtual Reality is certainly becoming a pretty interesting sector of the video gaming industry to watch. There are plenty of companies doing the whole Virtual Reality thing with headsets of their own. This really stems from the Oculus Rift doing so well before being sold to Facebook. Archos is planning on getting into the Virtual Reality scene with a headset as well which will be available this November.

Since the inception of OUYA, the upcoming Android-based gaming console that will also be open source, the slated release time frame for the console to hit store shelves has been around March 2013. Even yesterday when we were reporting on the fact that OUYA would come out of the box with Jelly Bean (Android 4.2) as its initial OS version, we still only knew that it would become available around March 2013. However, it could be coming sooner than that, a lot sooner in fact.
A new Kickstarter campaign has been launched for a new product that was inevitably heading our way at some point, especially after the success of the OUYA Android-powered game console. This new product, called the MG, is being developed by PlayMG and is being touted as the first dedicated handheld gaming device powered by Android.
There are plenty of these look-a-like or hybrid devices out there and the newest one making the rounds today is called the Droid X360. Basically this is a device that looks really similar to the PS Vita, without the rear touch pad, but also happens to be running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
Well that certainly didn’t take long with the insane amount of people trying to find every little tidbit of information regarding the two new products that are going to be announced right now during the Google I/O 2012 Day 1 Keynote session (which you can watch live here), those two items being the Nexus Tablet and Nexus Q.
