Xbox One defeats PS4 in online Black Friday sales

By: Emma Tucker | More News: Gaming | Posted: 14 mins ago

Black Friday had come and gone with Cyber Monday completed as well. So after all the hectic craziness of shopping for great deals over the Thanksgiving weekend, Microsoft once again defeated Sony in console sales online.

According to Adobe's annual market-tracking data for the United States, the Xbox One was recorded as the fifth best-selling electronics brand online during the Black Friday event. As all other items and products ahead of the Xbox One where not gaming consoles, it meant that Microsoft once again took the number one spot for sales over Sony's PlayStation 4.

 

For now it seems that Microsoft have the upper hand when it comes to sales, though for how ever long they maintain this position is yet to be seen.

Mass Effect: Andromeda to support 21:9 UltraWide on PC

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 hour, 20 mins ago

In addition to building Mass Effect: Andromeda completely from scratch in DICE's next-gen Frostbite 3 engine, BioWare now confirms that it plans to support 21:9 UltraWide resolution on PCs when the game launches in 2017.

 

 

BioWare is going lengths to ensure Mass Effect: Andromeda taps the full potential of PC platforms. The developers have not only confirmed the next-gen Mass Effect won't be locked to 30FPS on PC, but now BioWare producer Mike Gamble says the game should natively support 21:9 UltraWide aspect ratio monitors--something that's usually missing in major PC releases these days.

 

Flynn also confirmed that ME: Andromeda would have full gamepad support on PC, and that the game has HDR support, but this is likely referring to the PS4 Pro and not PC monitors. The game is also fully optimized for 4K on both PC and Sony's new PlayStation Pro console--although the latter will be upscaled 4K at locked to 30FPS, and will also have super-sampled graphics on 1080p HDTVs. PC, of course, will run at native 4K--provided you have a beefy enough graphics card.

Aquaman is being directed by James Wan, who has directed Furious 7, Saw, The Conjuring, Death Sentence and more. Aquaman was teased briefly in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year, with Jason Momoa reprising his role in Justice League next year.

 

Wan has teased Aquaman: "I kind of don't want to give too much away but know this: The spirit that I'm going for is like a classic sort of swashbuckling action adventure, sort of high seas adventure story. It's ultimately a quest story in the spirit of Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Romancing the Stone".

Crackdown 3 runs at 4K on Xbox Scorpio, arrives in 2017

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 hours, 20 mins ago

Crackdown was one of the most addictive gaming experiences on the original Xbox, but it looks like Crackdown 3 might be an awesome experience on the upcoming Xbox Scorpio console.

 

crackdown-runs-4k-xbox-scorpio-arrives-2017_01

 

Microsoft Studios art director Dave Johnson has confirmed Crackdown 3 for holiday 2017 "or earlier" during an interview with Extra Life, adding that Crackdown 3 will support 4K on the Xbox Scorpio. Microsoft has already confirmed first-party games will all run at native 4K resolution on Project Scorpio. The game was originally slated for launch in 2016, but Microsoft delayed it into 2017 for a few different reasons.

 

Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg said that Crackdown 3 wouldn't launch in 2016 because Microsoft's holiday lineup was already chock full of games, with Microsoft Studios boss Shannon Loftis adding that Crackdown 3 was delayed because the team wanted to spend more time on the campaign.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 6 hours, 44 mins ago

Old school gamers will remember the effect that MechWarrior had back in the 90s, but did you know there hasn't been a single-player game in the MechWarrior universe since 2002's MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries?

 

 

Piranha Games has been working on MechWarrior Online, and have now just announced MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries - a single-player game that will have gamers aiming for a successful career as a private robot that serves on "behalf of the houses of the Inner Sphere", reports Engadget.

Universal's 'The Mummy' returns in first teaser trailer

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 8 hours, 58 mins ago

It's been eight years since the release of Universal's 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor', so we all know what that means... reboot! Today, the upcoming film released its first teaser trailer, which sees Tom Cruise face off against Sofia Boutella's female baddie.

 

 

Unlike the action adventure franchise starring Brendan Fraser that kicked off back in 1999, this 'Mummy' is being built from the ground up to launch a cinematic universe of the studio's classic horror icons including The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man, and vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing. Naturally, there's more than a little expectation riding on its undead shoulders, but with a solid cast and writer-turned-director Alex Kurtzman behind the camera, we could be in for something quite interesting indeed.

 

'The Mummy' is set to scare cinemagoers in 2D and IMAX cinemas worldwide from June 9, 2017.

Social media ad spending will hit $50 billion by 2019

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Social Networking | Posted: 9 hours, 13 mins ago

We all know social media is enjoyed and used on a daily (and minute-by-minute) basis by billions of people across the world, but by 2019 - social media advertising budgets will balloon out to a massive $50 billion according to French advertising Publicis Group Publicity Zenith (Zenith Optimedia).

 

social-media-ad-spending-hit-50-billion-2019_07

 

On Monday, the group predicted that by 2020, global social media advertising spending will reach $50 billion, exceeding newspaper advertising. Power Communications is estimating by 2019 that global social media spending will account for 20% of total internet advertising - or $50 billion, just 1% lower than newspaper advertiser spending.

 

By 2020, social media spending will easily exceed newspaper ads - and most likely, even before then at the rate we're seeing. Online vide advertising is also growing, where by 2019 it's expected to reach $35.4 billion, higher than radio ads, but lower than TV advertising.

Enter our giant 'BFG' Blu-ray giveaway thanks to Disney!

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Contests & Giveaways | Posted: 12 hours, 6 mins ago

To celebrate this week's release of 'The BFG' on Blu-ray and DVD, we have 5 Blu-rays to give away thanks to our friends at Disney Home Entertainment.

 

enter-giant-bfg-blu-ray-giveaway-thanks-disney_01

 

The world is more giant than you can imagine. The talents of three of the world's greatest storytellers - Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg - finally unite to bring Dahl's beloved classic "The BFG" to life. Directed by Spielberg, Disney's 'The BFG' tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing over 7 metres tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.

 

To go into the running to win a prize, simply correctly answer the following question:
