Rugby Challenge 2 - Is it able to compete with Pro Evolution or FIFA?

Rugby Vs Soccer 

I know Rugby and Soccer (football) are like apples and oranges and it would be unfair to compare them too much. But with rugby becoming more popular now than ever, could this finally be the time a rugby video game challenges the soccer game spotlight?

Extreme sports communities take to the SunnyCam Sunglasses

Spy-Cam Sunglasses have been embraced with open arms by the extreme snowboarding and motorcycling world!

During the late 2000s the search for accessible ways to capture the perspectives of extreme sports practitioners has been a gruelling trial and error process. The problem usually revolves around the compromise between physical accessibility and picture quality, just when a camera seemed light enough to not disrupt the sportsman's efforts, the video quality was severely jeopardised.

What classic horror film would make the best video game?

... According to the social media democracy

After asking our followers what classic horror would make the best video game and compiling the Twitter and Facebook votes, the result was surprisingly one sided.

Just under 80% of the votes went to Stanley Kubrik's "The Shining"

If you are anything like us this result maybe pretty surprising (unless you're like 80% of our voters of course) I mean how would the game work? What perspective would you be playing from? What would the objectives be? 

One of our twitter voters made this suggestion.  

@Nellybonjelly  - "The Shining" from Jack Nicholson's POV. He starts off fighting ghosts then when he's possessed he chaises his family.

One of our facebook voters suggested this.

"You can play as each character (The dads character when he's good) like an ensemble piece. You can even have a section where you are the kid in his toy go-cart thing. You can even be the caretaker as well. Each level represents a different section of the movie."

It is impressive that a film made in 1980 would still be seen in such high regards by a whole new generation. Although, there were overwhelming amounts of people that liked the idea of playing from Jack Nicholson's perspective, which may say something pretty sinister about our young generation ... or am I just getting old?

Hidden Spy-Cam Gadget sales increase by 30%

At Hitari we like to delve into the gadget world as much as we can and one thing you really can't escape from when it comes to Gadget Tech is the extreme advances in "spycam" technology.

We sell a few products that fall into the "hidden/spycam" category, more for their geeky gadget appeal than security purposes (or the more deviant motivations that we wont mention).

Also the fact general Spy-Cam sales have increased by 30% from June 2012 to May 2013, makes it even more appealing to sell them.
