postheadericon UK charity opens gaming visitor center / gaming gadget incubator for the disabled

Disabled gamers currently form a small, but growing portion of the gaming community, and the folks from the UK’s SpecialEffect video games charity are seeking to get a lot more of them gaming. SpecialEffect — with an assist from UK Prime Minister David Cameron — just opened a Video Games Visitor Centre to give those with disabilities a place to experience cutting-edge gaming tech designed for the disabled, like eye-controllers, in its GamesRoom. The Centre also has a GamesLab where “games and hardware are tested for accessibility” so game devs can adjust their wares to get even more people dishing out pwnage than ever before — bring it on!

postheadericon Katamari Hack rolls across your favorite websites, leaving swath of HTML5 destruction in its wake

Google Chrome may have come out of Pwn2Own unscathed, but you can rip through any website it (or another HTML5-compliant browser) displays — just pull out your handy Katamari Damacy ball and wreak havok on the page. Na NAaaa, na na na na na na na, na na na na na naaaa…

Alternatively, paste the following Javascript into a bookmark, and then click it when you’re tiring of a page.

javascript:var i,s,ss=[‘http://kathack.com/js/kh.js’,’http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js’];
for(i=0;i!=ss.length;i++){s=document.createElement(‘script’);s.src=ss[i];document.body.appendChild(s);}void(0);

postheadericon PlayStation Suite coming to Tegra 2 devices

NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone app, freshly launched this month, has become the source for a nifty little bit of Sony-related news: the PS Suite that is currently slated to deliver PlayStation One games to the Xperia Play is coming to Tegra 2 devices. Of course, if you’re keeping up with your Sony tablet exclusives, you’d already know that the company’s expected to unveil a Tegra 2 slate this year, so don’t go assuming that your Xoom will necessarily get the PlayStation Certified badge. On a separate note, we’re also hearing this expansion of supported hardware will be followed up with the eventual addition of PlayStation 2 games to the Suite. Those are clearly not on the immediate horizon and we suspect Sony might be waiting for quad-core mobile chips — such as the one within its upcoming NGP — to hit the market before rolling the last-gen console’s wares out to pockets and messenger bags across the world.

[Thanks, Onno]

Update: Upon further investigation, we’ve been unable to confirm the claim about PS2 games being on Sony’s PS Suite roadmap. Android and Me reports it to have come from NVIDIA, but the original Tegra Zone post makes no reference to PS2 games. We’ve updated the post to reflect this.
