Dropbox has announced some changes in its cloud storage goodness, where it won't stop Dropbox for Business users from combining their personal Dropbox accounts on the same device.
From now on, Dropbox will allow personal and business users to combine their cloud storage content, but it will still allow business IT departments to keep business as business, keeping users out of their personal storage. You can now link your Dropbox accounts together if that's what you're after, where you'll see two accounts on mobile devices as separate folders: Business and Personal.
Blizzard's on-going issues with Diablo III are a big talking point amongst avid fans of the game, and the tech/gaming worlds in general because of its lack of offline mode. But now there's an interview between Rock Paper Shotgun and Lead Designer, Kevin Martens, who has some interesting things to say:
I don't think people necessarily remember how mad they were that they had an offline mode and online mode in Diablo II. People will be like, 'I wasn't mad!' But I was there at the time, and then I studied this for a living. It sucks when your friend or brother is online and he wants to join this game, but you realize you're an offline character and he's an online character, and there's no way to transfer over because offline characters can be hacked and hex-edited to hell and back, right?
This looks to be the reasoning behind the developer not pushing offline mode into Diablo III, but I'm sure they could find a way. What do you think? Are you a Diablo III player who wishes there was an offline mode? Let us know in the comments.
When you visualize the next-gen consoles in your head, you don't think about a huge size discrepancy between them. But, there is, and it's big. You can see the difference in the pictures below.
The Xbox One is quite a bit bigger than the PS4, but why? The PS4 is the faster console overall, so what is Microsoft's excuse for the Xbox One being so big? Maybe it's cooling system is superior to that of the PlayStation 4, maybe.
If you're rocking a Nexus 4 smartphone, or Nexus 7 tablet (in either the 2012 or 2013 edition) then you'll be happy to know that Google is pushing out Android 4.4 KitKat factory images.
This is great, because some of the Nexus 7 versions aren't receiving their over-the-air (OTA) updates, but now any Nexus 4 or Nexus 7 owner can download it and apply them. I've been using Android 4.4 KitKat on my Nexus 5 for the last few days, and I'm coming to really enjoy the changes that Google has pushed onto the platform.
The next-gen consoles are really taking up our lives right now, with South Park jumping on board in its latest episode. The episode uses a Game of Thrones-style battle, where they beat other customers to great Black Friday deals.
The kids obviously want the next-gen consoles, so the PS4 vs. Xbox One battle begins. Better yet, the kids are all wearing the outfits that they'll be wearing in South Park: The Stick of Truth, with the episode taking the time to take a stab at the fact that the game was delayed - a nice touch. The episode ends on a cliffhanger, which is great as Black Friday is getting closer and closer, and so is the Xbox One.
I've just watched the episode, and it really pushes the differences between the consoles, with the kids arguing the points between the Xbox One and PS4. Cartman even says "let these Sony f**** wallow in their limited voice control functionality". Some classic Cartman right there!
Microsoft launched their Games With Gold program which gives you two free games a month on the Xbox Live Marketplace back in June and were originally going to do it for just a limited time. They have announced they will be continuing the Games With Gold and that it will be coming to the Xbox One as well. They will be giving out more details later in 2014.
Microsoft's Larry Hryb sent a tweet out saying: Access to free games each month is coming for Xbox Live Gold members on #XboxOne - Details coming later in 2014
Guys and girls, this is what happens when you shoot Sony's next generation PlayStation 4 console with a high-powered rifle. It explodes, in a beautiful fashion, in slow motion to make it look even better.
Rated RR took to shooting his PS4, which might sadden people who don't have their console yet. Maybe he should've shot the defective ones going around, because I'm guessing this unit worked - and while it's beautiful to see, it does pull at some heartstrings.
The PlayStation 4 has just launched, and just as I'm wondering why there's no system-seller, the Japanese giant goes and teases a new Uncharted game for the PS4.
There's absolutely nothing known about the game, other than Naughty Dog is back developing. But, we could expect a new Uncharted game that doesn't feature Nathan Drake, which would be a disappointment - unless it's done right, and it could revolutionize the franchise, hopefully. We should expect more in the coming months, hopefully some gameplay is shown off on the next generation hardware!
Eric Lempel vice president of Sony Network Entertainment gives you a tour of the PlayStation 4 user interface. He shows off the new and improved "What's New" screen and a lot of the other new features. You'll notice the PS4 is pretty quick going through menus and how social and interactive the experience can be. For example sharing to Facebook and being able to stream your game-play for your friends to watch. The new friends list can also show you your friend's actual Facebook photo and real name, and it's an option you can turn off.
The PlayStation 4 is just hours away!
Bugbear Entertainment's Next Car Game is currently on Kickstarter, where it needs $350,000 in funds to get made. Currently, at the time of writing, it is sitting at only $70,111 - so get over there and pledge some of that cash!
Now, to tease the world, the developer has unleashed some in-game footage, with some awesome destruction shown off. Check out the video above, and tell me you're not impressed with that. This is pre-alpha footage, and that destruction would be some awesome fun in a multiplayer game with friends. Hopefully Bugbear can hit the $350,000 required, as it is one game that could be some amazing fun with friends.
