• Halo 5: Guardians Announced For Xbox One

    Halo 5: Guardians Announced For Xbox One

    Well ever since we got that sand filled teaser at E3 last year, we knew it was only a matter of time until a new Halo landed on Xbox One. 13 years since the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved, next fall will see the launch of Halo 5: Guardians. 343 Industries says that the game will use a brand new engine and will incorporate the lessons they learned from Halo 4, which we referred to as the most accomplished game in the series in our review two years ago. As they did with Halo 4, we hope 343 are taking advantage of the rich mythology of the Halo universe for the Xbox One. We’ll have more information on Halo 5: Guardians as it develops and you can read the full statement from 343 Industries after the jump.

    People are going to compete in ‘Call of Duty’ at the X Games

    The world’s best Call of Duty players will soon square off at ESPN’s X Games. For the first time ever, ESPN and Major League Gaming have teamed up to produce the MLG X Games Invitational, a three-day contest that will take place starting June 6th at X Games Austin. MLG says it’s rounded up eight of the premier CoD teams, and they’ll all be racking up kills to earn medals — the same ones going to world-class athletes competing in events like skateboarding, BMX, and Moto X.

    The MLG Invitational will be showcased in a big way with its own tent and a dedicated tournament area. If you can’t make it in person, the competition will also be streamed at MLG.tv, through MLG’s mobile apps, and also via MLG’s Xbox 360 app. But if you are attending…

  • Sony Enter The VR Arena With Project Morpheus

    Sony Enter The VR Arena With Project Morpheus

    In case you hadn’t heard, Sony is attempting to give the still nascent Oculus Rift a run for its money when it comes to Virtual Reality gaming. Announced at GDC this week, “Project Morpheus” is a visor-style, head-mounted display that works with the Playstation Camera to provide a virtual reality gaming experience on the PS4. The headset uses inertial sensors to provide head tracking and can be used with a Playstation Move to represent weapons or other physical objects in the game. Morpheus is still very much in the development stage, and at this point Sony is only saying that they are looking at a future commercial launch. However, with the development popularity of the Oculus Rift and rumours of Microsoft’s own VR solution, this may be the direction that this generation of gaming is heading.

    Google Drive Drastically Undercuts Competitors for Online Storage

    Google has done something rather radical in slashing its online storage service’s pricing, dropping the price of Google Drive to $9.99 per month for 1TB. Users have always received 15GB free, but now you can jump to 100GB for $1.99 a month (down from $4.99) and get a whopping 1TB for $9.99 a month (down from $49.99). This move undercuts Dropbox’s popular service by a LOT, given that 100GB of Dropbox storage will run you $9.99 a month.

     
  • Apple TV Update Brings Bluetooth AirPlay Features

    Apple TV Update Brings Bluetooth AirPlay Features

    It’s always fun to fall upon new features after a product is released or updated–especially when that product is as near and dear to our hearts as Apple TV is. Following the 6.1 update last this week, a new report is out that Apple has enabled AirPlay device discovery over Bluetooth; this means that in addition to bonjour, iOS 7.1 devices will also look for AirPlay sources via Bluetooth when it scans. We’re hoping for some more substantial Apple TV news next quarter–but for now, we’ll settle for some increased Apple TV functionality.
