Researchers from the University of Rochester found that people that played action video games had sharper visions than those that did not play on a game console. Those gamers that took visual acuity test had better abilities at seeing objects in a clutter space compared to non-gamers. The study was first published in Psychological Science.

"Action video game play changes the way our brains process visual information," said Daphne Bavelier who is a professor of brain and cognitive sciences at the University of Rochester. "After just 30 hours of training, people who normally don't play video games showed a substantial increase in the spatial resolution of their vision, meaning they could see small, closely packed letters more clearly."

Nintendo has announced that they will be teaming up with Fox Interactive Media’s GameSpy so that Wii gamers will be able to play online against other gamers. At the time of this writing, there currently is no titles shipped that support the online multiplayer gaming experience. Nintendo said they will be releasing games that will support the Internet play function throughout the year.

The way that the Wii online game play will work is that you can choose the skill level that you are at and match with other players with that skill level, or you can choose from a friends list. You can also play with others by meeting up at the game leader boards for a little competitive game play.

Before I wrote this article I was sitting on my porch, enjoying the afternoon sun while playing Me and My Katmari on my Ipod. Now I love downloading Ipod games but until recently I didn’t even know you could download games onto your Ipod until my friend John showed me how.

It’s quite easy to download Ipod games. Most sites provide the converter you need in order to put the Ipod software downloads onto your Ipod.

Once you’ve downloaded the games of your choice, you can play them directly on your Ipod Mini, Ipod Nano or video Ipod.

There are so many different games you can download to your Ipod; sports, action, strategy, puzzles, driving, adventure, simulations and role-playing. Some of the most popular games at the moment are action games such as Persuit Force, Daxter and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. Popular shooter games include Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Essentials. A popular arcade/puzzle game is Me and My Katmari. Two popular fighting games are Fight Night: Round 3 and Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai.
