Date: Thu, 27. February 2014 17:09:00
Game publisher Bethesda announced the next-gen resolutions for its new game, Wolfenstein: The New Order recently, and it's a little different than what you might expect. Speaking to Gamingbolt, the company confirmed that both the Xbox One and PS4 versions will run at 1080p and 60 fps.

Review: Razer Edge Pro tablet?insane performance that's completely impractical

Date: Thu, 28. March 2013 11:00:00
PC gaming is poised to break free from the desktop?it just needs a device that delivers fast frame rates and lush graphics in an affordable, portable package. Enter the Razer Edge Pro, a Windows 8 tablet built expressly for playing PC games on the go. The hardware even comes with an optional controller accessory that turns the tablet into a handheld game console.  But Razer's pitch goes way beyond gaming. The company is marketing the Edge Pro as a multi-purpose machine that can replace your laptop, desktop, tablet, and, yes, even your Xbox, PS3 and Wii. After using the premier version of Razer's new tablet as my primary device for a week, I think it comes close to delivering on its multi-disciplinary promise?if you're willing to make some compromises. In terms of raw processing performance, sure, the tablet can do everything. First, the good news: It works. Thanks to a Core i7 processor and discrete Nvidia graphics, the tablet is powerful enough to run Far Cry 3 and Dishonored at decent frame rates. And thanks to Windows 8 Pro, it can run legacy desktop applications, including essential gaming utilities like Steam, uPlay and the launchers for World of Warcraft and Guild Wars 2. The Edge Pro also easily chews through productivity applications, handling the processor-intensive Photoshop with aplomb. The bad news: Whether you?re playing games, watching movies, editing images, or writing tablet reviews, the Edge Pro requires significant compromises. In terms of raw processing performance, sure, the tablet can do everything. But in terms of ergonomics, convenience, display quality and price, the tablet falls short of more specialized, cheaper devices. We reviewed the highest spec'ed version of the Edge Pro, and at $1450, it proved to be a luxury product for hardcore PC gamers only.

App Market Shift Could Benefit EA And Activision

Date: Thu, 15. August 2013 15:01:00
The recent share price gains of Electronic Arts and Activision are partly due to investor anticipation for new consoles from Sony and Microsoft. But part of the surge may be due the changing dynamics in the mobile app market. Over the past year, app consumers have started shifting from casual, simple games towards mid-core games that incorporate a long narrative arc into game structure. Apps like "Tiny Wings" and "Subway Surfer" used to define the mobile app market - you play the game in 30-90 second increments and you never really get anywhere. The coin count may increase, but the player returns to square one each time the play session is over.

How PlayStation Move shaped the PS4

Date: Fri, 11. April 2014 02:30:00
The PlayStation Move has been called a lot of bad names. It's the PlayStation peripheral that's least used by game devs, least purchased by console owners, and least spoken of by Sony itself. Some of that sentiment's been turning lately, ever since Sony showed off Project Morpheus a few weeks ago and demonstrated what an impact something like Move has on virtual reality immersion (the controller works for both PS3 and PS4).
