New Zelda game leaked? Zelda Universe [UPDATE]


With the Electronic Entertainment Expo  (E3) show just around the corner, and Nintendo poised to announce a new console to replace the Wii, is it possible we might see a more online focus from the big N?  The latest hint is a mention of a new Legend of Zelda title known as Zelda Universe.

Could it be a Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) game from Nintendo?  Maybe, given the expected direction of its next home entertainment console will be with increased online capabilities.

Either way, fans of the hallowed Zelda series of games will be happy to announce that some online sleuths have uncovered what is likely to be the next game.

The ratings board in the US has just posted a new game title Zelda Universe with an E-for-Everyone rating. 

Chances are, this title will form part of Nintendo's E3 announcement in early June.  We already know that this presentation will include a new hardware reveal in the form of Project Café, the successor to the highly popular Wii console.


[UPDATE] Turns there should have been more speculative of this news.  Further sleuthing has revealed the ESRB rating was dated 2001 and was in reference to the Nintendo official Zelda website.   Still the hope is that Nintendo look to expand its online presence with the replacement console.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
