The Future Of Table Soccer May Lie In Robotics

While most foosball game enthusiast have a hard time believing that a robot foosballer could ever beat a human foosballer, there are a couple of projects in universities that have built a few that can do just that. Rice University in Houston Texas and the University of Adelaide have both built robots that have never been beaten by a human. In all fairness; however, the robots, which are actually robotic foosball tables, have never played a professional level foosball player. There were several projects like this at various schools, like the University of Freiburg in Germany. Human Defense Was Lacking A youtube.com video illustrated a robotic table foosball wonder at work against a human opponent and the machine scored several times. It was fascinating to watch how smoothly the machine passed the ball around and the lightning speed with which it shot the goals.

Foosball 2012 coming to PS3, PS Vita to feature cross-platform play

Jakub Miyska, CEO of Grip Games, has released a video complimenting the cross-platform play for the upcoming PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita title Foosball 2012.

Buying the game for either version grants the other version for free, so the game only has to be purchased one time in order to play it on both consoles. This policy will also apply to any downloadable content as well, so each piece of DLC will only have to be purchased once and will be accessible on both consoles. Foosball 2012 will also feature an automatically-syncing save system. When the game saves, it will upload to the game servers, which will also piggyback multiplayer statistics and trophies with it, and be accessible automatically on the other console. So, players don't need to play through the same things to get the trophies for both versions. Now, the true pinnacle of cross-platform play: players on the PS3 can play against players on the PS Vita online. It's great to see a development company truly integrating all of the functionality that the relationship between the PS3 and
