Samsung game pad

With all this information flooding Samsung Galaxy S4 with its announcement yesterday at the Samsung press event unwrapped, it seems that Samsung has also given a potential spoiler of his big combined another note Samsung Galaxy 3.

With the launch S4, a host of other accessories were also announced by the manufacturer, one of which is a game official Bluetooth controller that adapts Pd have a multitude of devices Samsung smartphones, ranging from screen size 4 to 6.3 inches!

Today, we are a long shot that here, but with the Bluetooth accessory defined as a generic for all Samsung Galaxy range, it could mean that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could be? Super-sized? In the department of the screen, along the entire height of 6.3 m.

A few weeks ago some sources have claimed that the next version of the notes come in 5.9 inches? In the department of the screen, adding an additional 0.4 on the previous model, but with smartphones becoming larger (S4 Galaxy features a huge 5-inch? Screen), it is clear that Note 3 may take a bit silly to keep his reputation as the greatest.

Regarding the actual Bluetooth joystick itself, while looking like a back to top 00 is the bit of kit esq Xbox 360 has two analog sticks, two shoulder buttons and four buttons action and can be added on your smartphone to turn your Galaxy S4 (or grade 3!) in a mini console.

It is all a bit of speculation regarding the note 3, but Samsung wants to keep its Galaxy range of handsets in the extension of the other, we can see that the joystick would be something of a story on entering S4 and note 3.

Xbox 720 and PS4 could be on their way as early as next year according to EA boss John Riccitiello.

Microsoft and Sony could be set to launch new consoles as early as next year, according to EA CEO John Riccitiello.

“A major catalyst going forward, and the most important catalyst going forward is visibility on next-generation console,” Riccitiello told CNBC in a conversation about EA’s low stock.

“That NPD data, that minus 10-25 per cent that you’ve been seeing, that can and should be reversed out and some point, probably starting next year.”

Wii U will likely reinvigorate the hardware market in 2013, but whether or not Riccitiello is referring to Nintendo’s console alone remns to be seen.

New PlayStation and Xbox consoles have been rumoured for a reveal next year, ahead of a possible launch in 2014.

In a recent interview analyst Michael Pachter revealed that as recently as 2008, Riccitiello expected new consoles to launch in 2010-2011.

Author: ally keer  //  Category: Games and Players, Sony


Steam may end up offering streaming game services – but will likely wait for the cloud gaming market to prove itself first.

Valve isn’t outruling anything where cloud-gaming is concerned, it has revealed to NowGamer.

Asked at Develop if cloud-gaming was on Valve’s radar in light of Gaikai’s acquistion by Sony, Anna Sweet told us: “It’ll come down to whether customers need it, or like it. If that’s the case it’s definitely something we’d want to investigate moving forward.”

Valve has introduced numerous new tools and services recently, with Source Filmmaker in beta, Steam hitting Linux and Steam Greenlight on the way.

“I’m excited for what we’re going to learn from our customers with Greenlight,” Sweet added. “We’ve spent a lot of time doing our best to try and deliver to customers what we think they want to play, and I think we’re going to learn a lot about whether or not we were right.

“I think they’re going to teach us a bunch about what they want to see on Steam, what they want to play, and teach the developers participating in Greenlight a lot about what they’re looking for in games.”

Steam Greenlight goes live next month.

PS4 takes one step closer to reality.

The first images of what could be the PlayStation 4 has emerged, as found in the latest issue of Play magazine.

Play commissioned artist Ross Board to design the image based on Sony’s product line and history, technology trends and the likely architecture of the PlayStation 4 itself.

Play believes the PlayStation 4 will have a Blu-Ray drive, in spite of the recent Gaikai deal. The outlet also believes Sony’s next console will feature an internal power source, four USB 3.0 ports, PowerXCell and will continue to use DualShock as its primary input device.

“The next generation will arguably the last that uses physical media,” the magazine writes. “Downloads and streaming means publishers don’t have to worry about second-hand sales, while the continued success of services shows digital is the way forward. Problem? UK’s broadband infrastructure is poor.”

The latest issue of Play is available now from newsagents, iTunes, Imagine Shop and greatdigitalmags.com.

Author: ally keer  //  Category: Games and Players


Battlefield 4 is happening EA has confirmed, and beta access will be granted with a purchase of Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

Battlefield 4 is in development at DICE, EA has confirmed.

The game will be powered by Frostbite 2 and a beta will tak place in Autumn 2013 – it will be accessible if you pre-order Medal of Honor: Warfighter Limited Edition ahead of launch.

The reveal leaked on Origin earlier this week. More details on Battlefield 4 will be released at a later date, EA said.

“Though Battlefield and Medal of Honor Warfighter each offer players a completely unique experience, they are united by their underlying technology base – Frostbite. These are two of the hottest shooters, coming together to deliver a one-two punch of action, intensity and shooter entertainment,” said EA labels president Frank Gibeau.

We guess that means Battlefield 4 will launch next year too, although it seems unlikely to hit next-gen.
