    Show Notes

    Hardware Asylum January Custom Case Giveaway
    October 2013 Ninjalane.com officially transitioned to Hardwareasylum.com and to help draw attention to the switch Dennis custom painted a total of three computer cases and gave them away.  The tradition continues and this time Dennis has prepared two custom high-end cases and will give them away sometime early in 2015.

    The custom casemods include a first generation Cooler Master HAF Stacker with 750w PSU and a Silverstone Raven 4.  Both cases have been custom painted in the traditional automotive pearl orange and look pretty good. 

    Look for contest details in January including how to enter and what you’ll need to do to win.  Good luck everyone!

    Console Gaming Trends
    Darren gets really exited around the holidays and likes to talk about gaming trends, holiday sales and what he plans to play during the new year.  This segment starts with Darren recapping the Black Friday sales numbers that claim that the Microsoft Xbox One outsold the Sony PlayStation 4 almost 2:1.  Or course the devil is in the details and the numbers are more even than you would think.

    Of course since PC gaming is also big around the holiday season why not bring PC games to the living room with the help of a new Windows Console (SteamMachine) from Cyberpower PC called the Syber Gaming Vapor.  Dennis did a full review of the Vapor A and finds the form factor and build to be a good match for Home Theater Gaming.
