Naughty Dog's "Uncharted 4" still has no exact release date but the developers have set the release to be sometime in 2015 exclusively for the Playstation 4. The last time gamers heard about the title was from the Electronic Entertainment Expo earlier this year where devs unveiled a full in-engine trailer featuring Nathan Drake, the game's protagonist.
The trailer showed Nathan Drake waking up in a river bank in the jungle with a pistol in hand. Sully's voiceover runs in the backround and the video ended with Nathan venturing forth deep into the jungle while the camera panned to reveal cages with skeletons hanging from the trees.
"Uncharted 4" has the sub-title "Thief's End" and hints at the possibility that the title will be last in the series. There are rumors that the game will be running on 1080p at 60fps. There are also reports that Naughty Dog would be revealing new footage of the game at the Playstation Experience Event on December at Las Vegas. more >>
The successor to Google's Nexus 7 tablet, the Nexus 9, is soon to make its public release soon with pre-orders going on as early as last week. This time, the tablet has been made by HTC and even though it's made by a different manufacturer, it certainly follows Google's design aesthetic to the letter with its rounded off edges and minimalistic back covering.
Naturally, the Nexus 9 is bigger than its predecessor, the Nexus 7. Though it looks smaller than the Nexus 10, it certainly looks more refined than the 10-inch tablet. The back cover of the tablet is made of smooth plastic with an embedded Nexus lettering at the center. It comes in three colors, white, black, and gold.
One of the most noticable features of the tablet is that it comes with Google's latest Android software, the Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Nexus 9 tablet is one of the two devices to sport the new mobile OS, with the other being the Nexus 6 smartphone. more >>
Smartwatches are slowly gaining a foothold in the market as other manufacturers aside from Samsung are starting to put out a wrist watch line of their own. Apple has the Apple Watch, Motorola has the Moto 360, Microsoft has the Microsoft Band, and LG has the G Watch R.
While the G Watch R is still not available in the U.S., wireless carrier AT&T has confirmed that it will be one of the first major carriers to sell LG's smartwatch. There's no announcement of when the watch will be available yet but it will most likely be soon, before Christmas at the very least.
The G Watch R would probably cost more than $230 as the watch is already available in the UK at £299.99 LG's own smartwatch would be the second wrist device to feature a round-face type design, following close on Motorola's Moto 360 design. However, unlike the Moto 360's minimalist design, the G Watch R has taken on the look of big sports watches, much like Casio's G Shock watch line. more >>
Square Enix's next Final Fantasy title, "Final Fantasy XV" still has no release date but it is definitely going to be released for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. As the numbering dictates, it is the fifteenth main title in the series and is set in a different style and atmosphere than other Final Fantasy games.
The game started development before its announcement in May 2006 where it was initially revealed under the title "Final Fantasy Versus XIII." It's long development time and lack of updates had birthed rumors concerning its possible cancellation. Eventually it was renamed and switched from the Playstation 3 to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Only recently, the direction was switched from Tetsuya Nomura – who designed characters and contributed to the game's concept and story – to Hajime Tabata, who co-directed the game before. Nomura had been given the responsibility of directing another of Square Enix's game "Kingdom Hearts 3." more >>
The Apple Watch is still months away from release and there's already the issue of battery life plaguing it. Apple CEO Tim Cook had admitted that the company's first smartwatch would likely be needing charging daily, much like how the mechanical watches of old needed winding daily.
People anticipating the Cupertino smartwatch had expected the battery life to last at least a day but that would not be probably possible.
"We think people are going to use it so much you will end up charging it daily," said Cook during a live conference. more >>
