The FIFA 12 demo is good. So good, in fact, that it’s likely to mean that the combined FIFA 12 review you’re about to see splattered across the internet will report nothing short of a physics revolution. Lee Hall has the story.

Bright Side of News is rumouring that Nintendo is planning on using Nvidia’s Tegra tech to power the next DS – which is apparently due in late 2010.
As Engadget points out, “The primary source on this comes from Bright Side of News (which doesn’t have a big track record to judge by), who claims the debut is planned for late 2010 and conjectures that the device could either use the upcoming 40nm 2nd-gen Tegra tech, or the existing, tried-and-true 65nm chip.”

This Forbes piece, authored by journalist Chris Morris, argues that Google may be considering becoming a games publisher.
In a nuthshell:
While most videogame makers rely heavily on brick and mortar retailers to drive sales (something Google isn’t currently set up for), digital delivery is a rapidly growing industry. Valve Software has seen success with its Steam delivery system. And Electronic Arts (nasdaq: ERTS – news – people ) has been pushing its online store more heavily in recent months. The money’s not as good, but the growth potential is significant. And Google has the bankroll to wait for the growth to come.
“Given all the employees they have and the company’s policy of encouraging side projects, I would be very surprised if there wasn’t somebody in Google who’s not approaching [gaming] as an opportunity,” [Colin] Sebastian says. “Of course, there are a number of hurdles that have to be cleared before it reaches the outside world.”
