Sega Says ‘Wii U’ Out Between May and August 2012

Worried you may have to wait until holiday 2012 for Nintendo’s newfangled console-tablet contraption? Don’t fret: Sega says the Wii U should be out around this time (or a few months later) next year.

In fact Sega’s using verbs like “is”—not “might,” “should,” or “could”—when talking Wii U release timetables.

Rumor: New MacBook Airs Won’t Hit Wednesday

Ready for the next round of MacBook Airs? It sounds like Apple is, namely that Cupertino’s placed orders for nearly 400,000 ultra-light laptops, due to enter mass production this month.

E3 2011: Xbox 360 Gets Live TV in ‘New’ New Xbox Experience

What’s the one thing you wish Xbox Live had in the U.S., that it doesn’t today? Yep, I said live TV, too. I haven’t actually had live TV (or frankly any sort of cable TV package) for years.
