PlayStation 4 Revealed Last Night!!

Hey Guys,

I stayed up to watch the Playstation 2013 meeting last night and live on stage was the revealing of the PlayStation 4!

Here are all the details you need to know.

The Specs

PlayStation still haven't shown us the box itself, but lead system architect Mark Cerny announced on that the PlayStation 4 will pack an eight-core processor with 8GB of memory, the processor uses very similar technology to PC chips, so it’ll make porting high-end Windows games over a doddle. It can pause games and boot straight into them, or switch between them, and download games can be played even while they're still downloading. Unfortunately, the new tech does mean that PS3 discs won’t run on the PS4, but Gaikai CEO Dave Perry hinted that they would run not just on the PS4, but on your phone, all courtesy of the cloud.

The Controller

The leaked images were perfect. The new controller for the PS4, the DualShock 4, packs in a touch pad in the middle, as well as a “Share” button (which lets you easily tag and upload footage from your gameplay, like a console PVR), it also includes the headphone jack.

I don't particually like the positioning of the 2 analogue sticks and the concave layout but I do like the share and touchpad features that come with it.

You’ll also be able to play PS4 games on the PS Vita using Remote Play.

Cloud Features

Sony partnered with the game streaming service Gaikai last year, and now we know what it’s for. Live on stage, Gaikai CEO Dave Perry announced that you’ll be able to log on to the PlayStation Store and instantly play any demo of any game you like, using the power of the cloud. With a tap of the Share button, you can share a live feed of your gameplay, let your friends watch you play, give you tips and even take over your controls for you if you’re stuck on a hard level. You’ll also be able to broadcast your games over the web to anyone – not just your friends – through the Ustream service.

The Games

The PlayStation 4 wouldn’t be much without games, and several have been announced for the system already. Here are some trailers and game titles for you to look forward to.

Want to Watch the Announcement Yourselves? 

What do you think of the PS4? Looking forward to it? Not impressed? What are your favourite features? And did this announcement surprise you in anyway? Please leave your opinion in the comments below

Sony Xperia Z Rooted Before Release!

Hey Guys,

I know this post is a bit short but I have been low on time and haven't posted for 2 days

Just because a device hasn’t been released, is in limited release, or isn’t in the hand of a developer doesn’t mean that developers cannot root the device. XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire has rooted a pre-release device a few times, such as when he remotely rooted the Samsung Galaxy S III. Today, we are
talking about Chainfire’s CF-Auto-Root in a roundabout way.

XDA Recognized Developer, the legendary DooMLoRD took the Nexus 4 version of CF-Auto-Root, modified it a bit, did a dance to the rooting gods, and crossed his fingers. Using TeamViewer, to remotely attempt rooting, he was successful. Thanks to Chainfire’s app and DooMLoRD’s dancing, the
Sony Xperia Z now has root.

This is amazing stuff, don't you agree? Comment below to leave your opinion.

Where to Watch the PlayStation Announcment

Hey Guys,

For those of you who are unaware how and where to watch the PlayStation announcement that will most likely be the PS4 announcement here is some information for you.

The announcement will start at 11.00pm GMT, 12.00am CET or 10.00am Sydney (21st Feb). You can watch it via the normal PlayStation website or the Streaming service, Twitch.

To watch it on a mobile device, download the Twitch app on the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store

Sony PS4 to be Unveiled Tomorrow

Hey there!
Sources suggest that the PlayStation 4 is coming this month. Sony’s teasing fans to come see the “future” at an event on 20 February, and one newspaper in the US has already confirm it’ll be the next PlayStation on show. Keep reading for a look at the teaser video.

The PS4 will still use a disk drive, so not reliant on "The Cloud", and will reportedly focus on “social gaming aspects”, suggesting you’ll be able to connect with friends better while you play. 

There is a pretty unrevealing teaser video below

PlayStation 4 controllerThere are also leaks on the new controller. It appears to have a touchpad and to feature PlayStation move features. As of yet we don't know whether it will be a touchpad similar to the back of the PS Vita or an LED screen to display game features. We will find out soon. The leaked picture is on the left
Doesn't really give much away.

What are your opinions on the new controller, or can you see any revealing details in the teaser that I have missed? Please leave a comment down below!!

Samsung Officially Sends Out Jelly Bean Update to Jelly Bean via Kies or OTA

Hello Everyone!

I was unable to post last week as I had been too busy, but here is a positive post for you to enjoy!

It's been a long time but Android 4.1.2 has finally arrived for the phone that began the whole ''half phone, half tablet'' malarky. The original  Samsung Galaxy Note. The Jelly Bean update brings a number of improvements to the first phablet, with a brand new Nature UX UI that will help it look and feel more like the sequel phone. It'll also get features such as Multi-Window, Page Buddy, Smart Rotation and the awesome Google Now.

The update will roll out in phases depending on your country or carrier and is available via Kies or OTA.

Any opinions on this article? Do you have any news suggestions? Please comment or contact me via the Facebook page, my Twitter page or the Google+ page

Don't worry, I will post about Blackberry 10 and PS4 rumours when I have time to do an in-depth post!

ASUS Released 7-inch MeMO Pad Last Month.

7-Inch tablets seem to be coming out all the time. After the Nexus, all of the tablet manufacturers have been jumping on the small, more convenient tablet trend.

Next Gen Xbox Specs Leaked

Hey Guys,

VGLeaks are reporting an exclusive claim that they have the information behind the GPU that will be in the next gen Xbox, codenamed Durango. People are classifying this as a huge rumor, so keep that in mind. Until Microsoft releases any official information, we know nothing, but for those who are interested, keep reading.

"The following table describes expected performance of the Durango GPU. Bear in mind that the table is based only on hardware specifications, not on actual hardware running actual code. For many reasons, theoretical peak performance can be difficult or impossible to achieve with real-world processing loads," the 
report states. Take a look at the table below:

Xbox GPU


Durango has no video memory (VRAM) in the traditional sense, but the GPU does contain 32 MB of fast embedded SRAM (ESRAM). ESRAM on Durango is free from many of the restrictions that affect EDRAM on Xbox 360. Durango supports the following scenarios:
  • Texturing from ESRAM
  • Rendering to surfaces in main RAM
  • Read back from render targets without performing a resolve (in certain cases)

The difference in throughput between ESRAM and main RAM is moderate: 102.4 GB/sec versus 68 GB/sec. The advantages of ESRAM are lower latency and lack of contention from other memory clients—for instance the CPU, I/O, and display output. Low latency is particularly important for sustaining peak performance of the color blocks (CBs) and depth blocks (DBs).
I have no idea what any of the above means.

For information on what all of this jargon means click here as I know nothing about the topic.

iPad Mini 2 News.

Hey Guys,

It's midnight at the time of writing and I promised to post at least once a day but I was busy with revision. But even thought yesterday is over, I am still going to post this as if it was yesterday because I am hardcore! So excuse me if this iss a bit shit.

It is believed that the iPad Mini 2, Apple’s sequel to the 7.9inch iPad is to arrive in the coming months. The roumor also stated that it will feature a Retina display (Already gone through the stupid name thing) when it was released but didn’t say what exactly that include. But according to a new report from investment news service BrightWire, alleged sources from within Apple’s foreign supply chain say the iPad Mini 2 will feature a 7.9-inch Retina Display with an identical resolution to the full-size iPad 4 with Retina display.

The resolution on the alleged iPad Mini 2 is said to measure 2048 x 1536 pixels, 324 pixels per inch(Nexus 7 has 216) To compare, the iPad 3 and 4 both have display densities of 264 ppi, while the iPhone 5 has a similar density of 326 ppi.

This rumor sounds like a very realistic piece of news considering how Apple gave the screen resolution of the iPad 2 to the original iPad Mini.

I have a feeling it will be

The iPad Mini 2 isn't really that new or innovative, despite what the future video ad may say. It is literally another iPad Mini but most likely thinner and will a better display. I feel Apple should be changing the product a little more then that.

What are your thoughts on a second iPad Mini? Pleae leave a comment below with your opinion

Apple iPad 4 128GB Revealed

Hey Guys,

iPad release info as promised!
Apple has just announced an iPad 4 with Retina display (If you don't know, the retina is the thing in your eye that allows you to see, therefore everything is retina display, stupid name) model with  128GB storage.

The larger sized iPad follows rumours that Apple was getting ready to introduce a new model. The new iPad 4 128GB is now the iOS device with the largest amount of storage. Previous iPad models have only offered up to 64GB storage. To be honest, Micro SD support would be much more useful as it would give you more choice on how much data you have and you can transfer it to other devices.

The iPad 4 will be available in october and will cost £639 for the iPad 4 128GB WiFi model, or £739 for the WiFi with Cellular model, which allows internet access away from hotspots.

Here is a TechRadar Review!

I think it would be silly for the new iPhone's and iPod's to have this much storage space. It really does seem unnecessary  but this is coming from a guy with a 120GB micro SD card, so it really depends on the Apple fans.

It would be good to know what your opinion is on massive memory iPad's, do you think it's necessary and worth the cost? And do we really need that much memory on smaller devices such as iPhone's and iPod's? I would be great if I could see some comments that I could reply to. BYE!!!!

Sony to appeals PSN hack fine

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe says it will appeal a decision by UK authorities to fine the console manufacturer £250,000 for what has been judged to be a "serious breach" of the Data Protection Act. The Information Commissioner's Office says that its investigation has concluded that the attack "could have been prevented if the software had been up-to-date." The ICO recognises Sony was the victim of “a focused and determined criminal attack,” that “there is no evidence that encrypted payment card details were accessed,” and that “personal data is unlikely to have been used for fraudulent purposes” following the attack on the PlayStation Network."

Although SD support would do the job just fine!

Microsoft to shut down Windows Live Messenger (MSN) for good on March 15

Microsoft has announced the switch-off date for its age old and iconic Windows Live Messenger service, with all users having to switch to Skype by March 15 if they wish to continue exchanging instant messages with their pals. I feel as if this has been a long time coming as I haven't used Messenger for about 4 years now. It's practically nothing to anyone anymore.
