If Microsoft has its "Deals with Gold," Sony has its PlayStation Summer Sale. The summer sale, which started last July 29, will last for one whole month and is said to bring a lot of savings for gamers. It seems to be a good time for gamers to start building up their game collection or catch savings on a game they have had their eye on for a long time. Up to 70 per cent discount is being given on selected games for different types of PS consoles.
According to a report in Eurogamer, the summer sale will bring down game prices "roughly in line, and sometimes under, the cheaper retailer deals." Aside from the discounts on offer, there is an extra ten per cent discount for PlayStation Plus members on top of what is on offer.
The summer sale is exclusively available on the online Sony PlayStation Store. Owners of PS4, PS3 and PS Vita consoles are encouraged to head on down to the store where they can pick and choose from a long list of games. Surprisingly, some movie titles are available as well, although most of them are older, non-box office titles. more >>
Thanks to Qualcomm's new technology called WiPower, wireless charging may soon be available for smartphones, but only for those which have metal cases. Qualcomm has until recently been known for manufacturing processors which are used on most smartphones in the market. Now, it is venturing into wireless charging.
The report said that the company has patented the new wireless charging technology which it calls WiPower. It allows wireless charging for phones that have a metal rear cover. This has not been possible, not until now, so Qualcomm is in a good spot to pioneer this new technology.
WiPower technology is said to have been designed so that it is compatible with the global wireless standard Rezence, which was established by the Alliance for Wireless Power. more >>

"Wasteland 2: Director's Cut" is finding its way to current generation consoles PS4 and Xbox One on Oct. 13, 2015. The game was originally released for PC (Microsoft Windows, OS and Linux) in October 2013 and is the official sequel of the 1988 game "Wasteland." The PC version was developed after the developer successfully raised enough funds through a campaign on crowdfunding site Kickstarter.
Plans for a "Director's Cut" of the game came out in early 2015, with both Microsoft and Sony announcing in March 2015 that the game was coming to their consoles within the year. According to an IGN report, the game will be offered as a "remastered version" of the sequel. It will be first available in the Americas on Oct. 13, and then the rest of the world on Oct. 16.
