September 6, 2013

Sony are rumored to be working on a VR headset that will allow for a new level of immersion on PS4.

It is said that they will show it in two weeks at the Tokyo Game Show.

VR headsets is something that I am very interested in. I hope Sony does release one for the PS4.

Microsoft working on smart watch

April 17, 2013

Not only Samung and Apple are working on a smart watch, but now Microsoft are too. It seems without a doubt that this very well could be the next big gadget category and it’s only natural that the three giants want to gather as a large market share as possible as quickly as possible.

Are you interested in a smart watch? With GPS, heart rate monitor, mp3, etc? Basically a “smartphone light” that syncs with your smartphone and whatnot. I think it has limited potential, but it’ll be interesting to see. I’d use it with fitness in mind.

Some interesting concepts for what Microsoft could do with their smart watch.

New Xbox “Durango” rumors

April 11, 2013

New rumors are coming in for the next generation Xbox console like there’s no tomorrow and that can only mean one thing: an official announcement isn’t too far away. End of April or mid-May is what people are saying.

But let’s focus on the information, the most recent one, that has been coming out.

  • Durango will be priced at $499
  • Will not require a constant online connection
  • Will not block used games
  • Will have a special HDMI-slot for TVRs, DVRs, and cable boxes to replace them with all-new Xbox UI for TV surfing. (It aims to become the ultimate multi-media tool)
  • 500 GB hard drive
  • Will be cheaper with “Xbox LIVE Gold subscription” feature
  • Kinect will feature support for multiple people, improved readings etc

This all sounds pretty good in my eyes. The only thing I am afraid of is that it might be noticably weaker than the PS4. And that bothers me, otherwise I must say it sounds like Microsoft know what they are doing. But as usual, all we can do is wait until the official announcement comes out.

 

First picture of the Galaxy SIV?

March 11, 2013

Here’s a picture of what is claimed to be the first leaked of the Galaxy SIV smartphone from Samsung.

This phone is officially slated to be revealed in only three days, so it’s only natural that rumors are coming like crazy now.

It looks very simple and elegant in my eyes, but once again, it’s RUMORS.

iWatch this year?

March 4, 2013

It is heavily rumored that Apple will be launching a product called iWatch this year.

What’s iWatch? Well Timmy, I am glad you asked. It’s something called a smartwatch. Some of the features are said to be:

  • Running fully on iOS just like the iPhone and iPad.
  • Ability to make calls.
  • Connectivity with your iPhone/iPad.
  • Check map cordinates.
  • Heart rate monitor, pedometer, etc etc and likely a heavy focus on “health” such as jogging, powerwalking etc.

What are your thoughts on potentially having an iWatch? Will you buy it? I myself am not that convinced but it might be a cool thing to have if you jog. And since spring is coming up I usually tend to start jogging and it’d be nice to get a pedometer, heart rate monitor and whatnot all-in-one synched to my iOS life.

Mock-up of what a possible iWatch might look like. Not bad.

What Galaxy S4 Must Have

February 28, 2013

I’ve been a loyal iPhone user since I got my first one. Already with their first 2G model I considered them to be years ahead of competition and had the most epic phone. But times change, and I’m not blind.

It’s no secret that Apple’s main rivals Samsung are catching up. Some would say surpassing already in certain areas. And that saddens me. Why are Apple slacking off?

Either way this leaves an opening. I’m very interested in what Samsung’s next killer phone will have and I have an open mind regarding switching from my iPhone. But there are certain requirements for it to happen.

  • Indestructible screen like the rumors say. Waterproof like the Sony Xperia does would be sweet as well.
  • An equivalent iMessage app built in with free text messaging and MMS. An improved one would be even better.
  • Quality case, all android phones right now feel like plastic toys compared to the iPhone. I don’t like it.
  • Something that wow:s me.

And that’s pretty much it. I didn’t include the obvious things such as 4G, NFC, and forth on as the S3 already had that. Also faster, longer battery etc. but that’s given. So it won’t be be an easy task to lure me over from Apple as only iMessage by itself is an insanely strong seller. And add to that the quality feel of the phone and the beautiful app designs.

The blue Galaxy S3 was very beautiful. I hope they keep that color for the S4, but make it less plastic and more quality-like.

Galaxy S4 on March 14

February 25, 2013

Samsung has today confirmed that they indeed will be showing their next flagship smartphone Galaxy S4 on March 14.

Rumors also say the phone will be available only two weeks later for purchase.

I’m actually looking forward to this rent to see if all the awesome rumors are true. Amongst them is the promise of an unbreakable screen. How wicked is that? How will Apple counter?

I really hope that this is how the new Galaxy S4 will look like. And if all the rumors are true, I see myself possibly switching from Apple, to Samsung.

New Xbox announcement on April 26

February 25, 2013

As predicted, Microsoft will be revealing their next Xbox gaming console in April.

After the PlayStation 4 announcement, the pressure is now on Microsoft and every day that goes by is another potentially lost pre-order.

It was originally estimated that try would wait until E3 in June to reveal it, but after sony’s fast announcement things have changed.

I have insanely high expectations and the console needs to have very impressive online features and hardware in order to keep me as a customer for a third generation in a row.

More PlayStation 4 rumors

February 18, 2013

We are only two days away from the official unveiling of the PlayStation 4 and the rumors are flying in like crazy.

I mentioned the streaming rumor, and now we have a price rumor.

It is said Sony will retail the PlayStation 4 for a very promising £300 which is likely to become $349.99 and 349.99€ respectively.

Should this price be accurate I must admit the console will be insanely competitive and I can’t imagine what Microsoft will have to do to impress me.

PlayStation 4 controller leak real

February 17, 2013

The leak that showed a rumored Playstation 4 controller has been confirmed by reliable sources to be authentic. However, the source also said that the controller at hand was a prototype version, meaning that the final version will differ slightly in terms of polish and whatnot.

Also rumored for the PS4 is the capability to stream games directly, this has lead to theories such as renting games or buying a subscription membership and getting access to tons of titles etc.

See for yourselves!

How the PS4 controller will look like.
