PlayStation 4 with a bonus $100 gift card as Slim nears

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 1 hour, 33 mins ago

With the leaked PS4 Slim details slamming news headlines, it's only inevitable retailers will begin offering deals on the old PS4 to clear their stock. The first deal making waves so far is Dell.

Dude, you're gettin' a PS4. Dell Home might be thought of more of a PC retailer, but Dell does carry a fair amount of console video games and accessories. Right now at Dell, they are selling a PlayStation 4 Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 bundle with a bonus $100 eGift Card tacked onto it. Since the price is the same $350 as every other retailer online, you're effectively getting the PS4 for only $250. That makes it the best deal of the Summer for a PlayStation 4.

 

Dell isn't exactly showcasing this deal on their site. In order to even see the Gift Card bonus you'll need to add the system to the shopping cart, but once at checkout the $100 Gift Card will be automatically added to your cart.

 

The Gift Card is not a physical item, and in fact arrives via email. After purchase expect about 10 - 20 days for the eGift Card to arrive. It'll be good for anything sold at Dell, be it more PS4 video games or PC parts. Note that the promotional card has a lifespan of 90 days, so you'll be able to use it near the upcoming holiday season cycle too.

 

This effective price of $250 for a PS4 bundle marks one of the best PS4 deals to date. Currently the cheapest price online for a PlayStation 4 from a reputable retailer is at Groupon, who is selling refurbished units for $299.99. While you are saving $50 up front at Groupon, the $100 extra to spend (and a copy of Black Ops 3) feels like by far a much better deal.

Samsung begins shipping its Dolby Atmos soundbars

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Audio, Sound & Speakers | Posted: 14 hours, 53 mins ago

Samsung teased its new Dolby Atmos capable soundbars earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, but now the company is shipping both of its new soundbars in the US.

 

samsung-begins-shipping-dolby-atmos-soundbars_11

 

The new HW-K850 and HW-K950 are shipping right now, with prices of $999 and $1499, respectively. The higher-end HW-K950 is the better of the two, including the soundbar, two satellite speakers, and a subwoofer. The entire set is wireless, which makes setting it up so much easier. Both the soundbar and the two speakers project sound upwards, so the overhead sound effects sound amazing with Dolby Atmos.

PCIe 4.0 won't deliver 300W over the PCIe slot after all

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Motherboards | Posted: 16 hours, 51 mins ago

One of the biggest stories of the week was the tease of the PCIe 4.0 specification, which was said to deliver up to 300W over the PCIe port. It sounded impossible, but we thought the information was legit, considering it came from Tom's Hardware. The information wasn't accurate, with PCI-SIG coming out and confirming the real news: PCIe 4.0 won't deliver 300W over the PCIe 4.0 slot... damn.

 

pcie-4-deliver-300w-over-slot_10

 

The updated post on Tom's Hardware said: "Update, 8/24/16, 2:06pm PT:PCI-SIG reached out to tell us that the power increase for PCI Express 4.0 will come from secondary connectors and not from the slot directly. They confirmed that we were initially told incorrect information. We have redacted a short passage from our original article that stated what were originally told, which is that the slot would provide at least 300W, and added clarification:"

 

  • PCIe 3.0 max power capabilities: 75W from CEM + 225W from supplemental power connectors = 300W total
  • PCIe 4.0 max power capabilities: TBD

Ubisoft focuses on fixing The Division, delays DLC

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 18 hours, 36 mins ago

Ubisoft had expected to push out The Division's upcoming 'Last Stand' DLC later this year, but the company has had a change of heart - and a change of plan, by delaying Last Stand until "early 2017", while it fixes on "improving the core gameplay experience". Is this a new Ubisoft? What the hell is happening?!

In a post on The Division's official website, the team said that the upcoming v1.4 patch arriving in October would be filled with bug fixes, game balancing adjustments, and other improvements. Ubisoft was also expected to release The Division's next expansion dubbed Survival with the v1.4 patch, but the company has decided against that and will instead release them separately.

 

The Division's third expansion 'Last Stand' has been pushed back from late 2016 to early 2017, with Ubisoft explaining: "With Update 1.4 in the works, it has become clear with your feedback and our own observations that our priority should now be on improving the core gameplay experience. This new schedule will not only enable us to strengthen the core experience before adding new content, but also continuously improve it by allowing for more production time to ensure the quality of future updates as well".

Huawei unveils its new high-end Honor 8 smartphone

By: Anthony Garreffa, Lana Jelić | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 21 hours, 4 mins ago

IFA 2016 - Huawei, the third biggest mobile phone manufacturer, launched a new phone today in Stockholm, Sweden. Honor 8 is the top of the line Honor series phone, tho we can't say it's a flagship cause that title still belongs to Huawei P9.

However, with the dual camera system, the Honor 8 is quite similar to P9. Our source from Huawei tells us they wanted to make a cheaper phone with all of the P9 characteristics and one difference - they fixed all the problems the P9 has. This is where Honor 8 comes in. At first glance, the Honor 8 looks and feels like a premium phone. Its glass back gives it a fancier look and you get to choose between four colors - white, black, gold and dark blue.

The Honor 8 has a 5.2-inch full HD display and two 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras, but you won't see the Leica logo which is the case with the P9. Inside, we have Huawei's own Kirin 950 octo-core processor, 4GB of RAM and a 3,000 mAh battery. For comparison, the P9 has the same battery capacity, 3GB of RAM and a faster Kirin 955 processor.

HTC Vive preferred by more VR developers than the Rift

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Virtual & Augmented Reality | Posted: 21 hours, 45 mins ago

VR developers prefer the HTC Vive over the Oculus Rift, according to an industry report from UBM Games Network, where 49% of VR developers are making content for the Vive, compared to 43% working on the Oculus Rift.

 

htc-vive-preferred-more-vr-developers-rift_36

 

The report details that the next wave of games being developed for VR have 35% of developers building for the Vive, while just 23% are working on games for the Rift. The report doesn't state why more developers are making VR content for the Vive, but it could do with the Vive being a room-scale experience, versus the Rift being a seated-only VR experience (before the Touch controllers arrive).
