Nintendo America have just recently unveiled their brand new Nintendo 3DS console. The latest platform comes in two different, limited edition Super Mario Bros. themed colors.
Customers wanting to add this to their collection can pick up either the black or white system at this year's Black Friday event. The console will be available for purchase via the Nintendo website for $99.99 USD.
Only months ago Microsoft Australia unveiled the Xbox Onesie free with every purchase of the Xbox One S. Well now that comfy lounge-wear can be applied to gaming avatars.
The black and white onesies can be featured for both genders thanks to Larry Hryb otherwise known as Major Nelson announcing the news on Twitter. After working with the Xbox Live team, the crew designed and released the same outfit for avatars.
The best cinema experience I've ever had was seeing Interstellar in IMAX, thanks to Christopher Nolan shooting the movie in 70mm - so the news that Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow shooting Star Wars: Episode 9 in 65mm has me beyond excited, and I'm not even a Star Wars fan.
Shooting movies in 65mm provides an IMAX level of quality and resolution, so the final product is a crisper look when played through projectors and on massive TVs. The grain from 35mm was present in J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens, but that won't be the case in Episode 9 - as 65mm will result in hyper-realistic detail.
Chief Marketing Officer and President of Kodak's Consumer and Film Division, Steve Overman, said that as more directors are taking advantages from the technology available, better and higher quality films are being made. There are large advantages to using traditional film over digital, with Interstellar from Christopher Nolan and his upcoming work on Dunkirk to impress thanks to Nolan's love of film.
Overman explains: "The creative and aesthetic distinctiveness of 65mm film is still well beyond the capability of digital capture. So when discerning filmmakers want to a create work of memorable grandeur and lasting visual quality, they know that only real film delivers".
Sony has a faster PS4 on the market with its just-released PlayStation 4 Pro, but the new console is running The Last of Us Remastered at close to 4K 60FPS. Naughty Dog says that The Last of Us Remastered runs at 3200x1800 at close to 60FPS, with Digital Foundry reporting it drops by around 2-5FPS in some areas.
Digital Foundry has been all over the PS4 Pro and the games running on the Polaris-powered console, where they reported: "Probably the most surprising example of this is The Last of Us Remastered, a Naughty Dog production. The team has a reputation not just as one of the most cutting-edge developers in the industry, but also for their superb optimisation skills".
They continued: "Generally speaking, The Last of Us has been an absolute joy to revisit on PS4 Pro. You get a 3200×1800 resolution in 60fps mode, rising to native 4K at 30fps. It's also one of the best HDR titles we've tried. So if you have a 4K display, losing 2-5fps in performance in the 60fps mode doesn't feel like a bad trade as such, but the point is that you cannot opt for enhanced performance instead".
The site also tested the PS4 version of The Last of Us Remastered, where they found that the it ran at a "locked 60FPS, while the Pro may drop frames".
Rocket League is massive on the PC, with it being one of the best-selling games on Steam since it was released, and now we know just how popular it has been for de veloper Psyonix.
During an interview with NoClip, VP of Psyonix, Jeremy Dunham, said that the PC is responsible for 50% of Rocket League sales. The game has been, and is still uber popular - even with massive games surrounding it like League of Legends, Overwatch, and CS:GO. Do you play Rocket League?
Sony's beefier PS4 Pro seems to be helping ridiculously good looking games like Battlefield 1, with some early reports from PS4 Pro owners that have said that playing Battlefield 1 on their 1080p TV.
Reddit user Cerraent said they were "immediatly blown away by the sharpness from the intro/tutorial. While the campaign had a distracting aliasing on trees and foliage on my regular PS4, everything was extremely crisp and the texture detail was amazing (mud, gravel and so on)".
Cerraent continued, adding: "I also had the feeling that it gave an competitive advantage in multiplayer. Even my wife, who normally does not care for the technical side of games, mentioned that the game looks more crips/fluid than the last time she's seen me playing it. Sadly I have to ship my Pro in today, due to loud coil whine while under load. I would have taken screenshots otherwise".
It wasn't just Reddit either, with NeoGAF user Baked Tanooki saying that the improved FPS in Conquest mode with 64 players, saying: "Seems like Battlefield 1 was already patched. Framerate feels much smoother now, when playing with 64 players. It doesn't look like absolutely locked 60fps, but it's much much better". They continued: "The resolution bug seems to be gone, as I haven't experienced it a single time on my pro. It looks like it stays on 1080p all the time, instead of the dynamic resolution. Looks cleaner and easier on the eyes".
NVIDIA beat analyst expectations with their recent earnings expectations, smashing the market with VR, consumer graphics cards, cloud services, driverless cars, deep learning, and more. This led NVIDIA to post its largest sales growth in six years, quite the result - and 24 hours later, NVIDIA stock is up by a huge 29.7% to $87.92 - a record high for the company.
Looking back at NVIDIA's stock market performance for the last 12 months, we can see that the build up after the May reveal of the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 just didn't stop - NVIDIA stock was sitting at around $35 per share at the time of the GTX 10 series unveiling, to $41 per share on May 13 - and it didn't stop there. But the massive increase overnight of 29% is a massive deal, and I'm sure NVIDIA is popping champagne bottles open everywhere.
The 5-year graph is very interesting, as you can see that NVIDIA has been killing it throughout 2016 - at an unstoppable rate, too.
