Star Wars: Battlefront alpha has leaked out to torrent sites already

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 hours, 57 mins ago

With the alpha build of Star Wars: Battlefront opening up in the last few hours to a select few gamers, there are already copies of the game floating out onto torrent sites.

Someone who has already downloaded the alpha build, screenshots of the menu of Star Wars: Battlefront have leaked. This is what you're seeing above, which shows off a slick menu for the game. With Star Wars: Battlefront only just arriving in the last 24 hours, what do you think EA or DICE would have to say about it leaking so quickly?

 

This would be quite the marketing stunt for the game, as it's now going to be played by many more people than the closed off alpha build would've been exposed to.

PayPal splashes $890 million on money-transfer startup Xoom

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: 4 hours, 59 mins ago

PayPal has just announced that it is acquiring Xoom, a San Francisco-based digital money transfer startup for a huge $890 million.

Xoom has transferred over $7 billion for its 1.3 million customers, and that's just over the last 12 months. Most of this business was done over mobile devices, and between friends and family, so you can see why PayPal would be interested in acquiring a company like Xoom. PayPal wants to see Xoom expand into other markets, with Mexico, India, the Philippines, China and Brazil.

The first major iPhone 6S images leak, virtually the same design again

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 7 hours, 4 mins ago

We all know a refreshed iPhone is coming out later this year, but we have been split on rumors: is it the iPhone 7 or iPhone 6S? According to the latest leaks, we're looking at Apple unveiling the iPhone 6S later this year.

But there has been a big leak on the iPhone 6S, showing off everything - inside, outside, the style, no dual lens camera, and everything in between. We should hopefully see Apple cram in a more capable rear-facing camera that is hopefully 4K capable this time, but it's the inside of the new iPhone that has been upgraded versus the exterior, which is usually the case for the 'S' upgrades on the iPhone.

Inside of the iPhone 6S, we can see that there are new mounting points for the logic board, but the volume buttons, SIM card slot, and sleep/wake buttons on the iPhone 6S are in the same spots, so there's nothing new there.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 8 hours, 22 mins ago

The first official trailer to Steve Jobs has been released, where we get the best look at how Michael Fassbender's portrayal of the late Steve Jobs in his position at Apple from the beginning, when he was thrown out of the company, and after when he returned.

 

 

We get a tease of Seth Rogen's acting chops in the movie, which is directed by Danny Boyle, and written by Aaron Sorkin. The movie will feature many flashbacks to earlier parts of Jobs' life, where we will get the most detailed look at the legendary man himself. Will you be checking it out when it hits theaters later this year?

NVIDIA rumored to be working on the GeForce GTX 950 Ti

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 9 hours, 57 mins ago

One of the best architectures that NVIDIA has ever released has been the Maxwell architecture, powering the GeForce GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti and Titan X, but now it looks like a new mid-range video card is on the way in the form of the GeForce GTX 950 Ti.

The new GeForce GTX 950 Ti will reportedly sport the "GM206-250" GPU, with it being a cut-down version of the GTX 960 GPU, the GM206-300". The GeForce GTX 950 Ti should have a price tag of around $149 when it launches, as the GeForce GTX 960 is currently priced at $199, while the GTX 950 Ti is priced at $149.

 

We should expect NVIDIA to unveil the GeForce GTX 950 Ti in the near future.

Facebook is investing considerably into AI and VR technologies

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Wearable Computing | Posted: 11 hours, 21 mins ago

Facebook may have over a billion daily active users, but where does the company see itself in 10 years time? During a Q&A on his profile yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg talked about what his company has in store for the future.

Zuckerberg says that he thinks the ultimate communication technology will allow you to send thoughts to another person, where he elaborated: "You'll just be able to think of something and your friends will immediately be able to experience it too if you'd like". But since we're not quite there yet, Facebook is putting its effort into artificial intelligence (AI), as the company "think[s] more intelligent services will be much more useful".

 

Not only that, but Facebook sees VR as the future - after all, it did acquire Oculus VR last year - where it says VR is the "next major computing and communication platform". The social network didn't leave out its Internet.org project, with Zuckerberg adding that it's "the most basic tool people need to get the benefits of the internet," including jobs, education and communication".

AMD partners up with Hollywood on all things VR

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Wearable Computing | Posted: 12 hours, 35 mins ago

AMD has just announced a new partnership with Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in Hollywood, where it will provide Hollywood creatives with Liquid VR. This will allow Hollywood directors a better channel to work with AMD to create immersive VR experiences.

 

amd-partners-up-hollywood-things-vr_01

 

AMD's Corporate Vice President of Alliances, Roy Taylor, said that the most important part of VR isn't just about gaming. He said that the entertainment industry is investing "an order of magnitude more money and talent into VR than the game industry is". Taylor added: "Los Angeles has become the epicenter of virtual reality, not Silicon Valley. I meet a dozen new people every day in Hollywood that are interested in VR".

 

But with NVIDIA owning three quarters of the GPU market share, what can AMD do when it comes to VR? Taylor says that AMD has an advantage over its competitor, thanks to its "hardware asynchronous compute" technology, something we covered not too long ago.

Unity CEO: VR to create 'staggering orgasm of the new'

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Wearable Computing | Posted: 16 hours, 2 mins ago

Virtual reality seems to have hardware designers and software developers quite excited, even though there are plenty of skeptics. Joining the growing list of those excited about VR is Unity CEO John Riccitiello, and he recently shared thoughts about how his company is contributing.

Unity currently boasts "the best system for creating content for VR," Riccitiello said during his E3 keynote. He expanded his thoughts during a recent interview with GamesIndustry:

 

"We have the highest market share [in VR] right now, so we're already there. It's interesting that a company like Valve, which makes its own engine, is showing demos for VR, and all but one is built with Unity."

Fable Legends game director discusses DLCs with TweakTown

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming | Posted: 16 hours, 37 mins ago

Anytime I've written about Fable Legends in the past few months, it seems talk always turned to downloadable content (DLC) in free-to-play games. Lionhead Studios is going in a bit of a new direction with Fable Legends, and wanted to try to clear the air a bit regarding the controversial inclusion of DLCs in its upcoming free-to-play action role-playing game. We recently spoke with David Eckelberry, game director at Lionhead Studios, so here is what he had to say.

The addition of DLCs brings a high level uncertainty among many gamers, and some of you have already questioned it regarding Fable Legends.

 

"That's a reasonable thing to be unsure of. I'm unsure about free-to-play in some games!" David Eckelberry told TweakTown. "I believe it's up to the game developer. Some games I love are free-to-play, and I don't think it's a coincidence that first and foremost they are good games, regardless of how they get to market. It's also not a coincidence that these games seem legitimately fair: they don't let a player buy his way to victories, and the things you can purchase seem pretty fairly priced."

Microsoft boss says Xbox 'needs to do better' in European markets

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming Consoles | Posted: 18 hours, 15 mins ago

The Microsoft Xbox One is being handily outsold in Europe by the Sony PlayStation 4, with the PS4 holding 70-90 percent market share. Microsoft understands the importance in the European market, and the company is going to try to find ways to better compete against Sony.

"We need to do better in Europe. When I look globally, mainland Europe is definitely an area we want to focus on," said Phil Spencer, Xbox boss, while speaking to Edge magazine. Microsoft hopes to win over some gamers during Gamescom, a gaming-focused trade show in August that will be held in Cologne, Germany.

 

Spencer said the Xbox One "does really well" in Latin America, and is fighting Sony in the North American market.
