Google sets the table for an October 29th Android Event

Google Event Oct 29

The rumor of the Google Nexus event on October 29th is all but confirmed. The search giant has sent out invitations to the press for the event being held in New York City. The invite details are limited to time, date, and place but there's some additional written text in the search field. Could it mean an open API for Google Now?

With a high degree of certainty, the event will centered around the LG Nexus 4. However, there might be additional hardware announcements, like the one that appeared on the photo sharing site, Picasa, of the Sony Nexus X smartphone, and possibly a revamped Nexus Q. Perhaps some chatter of Google TV; we doubt it though. Could Google be planning to release yet another version of Android? Key Lime Pie anyone? The event will be live streamed on Youtube.

Mysterious images of Sony Nexus X smartphone pop up in Piscasa

Sony Nexus X

Rumor has it that Google may release two new Nexus devices: one made by LG, and the other by Sony. Two photos have popped up on the Piscasa photo sharing site, and they seemingly reveal an angled image of a device with Sony and Google branding on the back. This could be a hoax, but from a competitive perspective, two Nexus devices are better than one. The idea could propel the Nexus brand from a niche market to the mainstream; much like what Samsung did with the Galaxy line. Also, the image details shows that it was taken with a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We caught a  screenshot of it before the author decided to remove that piece of important detail. More images after the break.

Sony announces an even smaller and lighter PS3 Slim

Posted by Jason Diaz Categories: Hardware, PlayStation 3, Sony

PS3 Slim 2

Seems like Sony is obsessed with slim, and really, who isn't nowadays? Accordingly, Sony's new iteration of the PS3 is about to lose even more weight compared to the previous PS3 Slim model. Yes, you read that right. This is Sony's second attempt at trimming the fat from its current generation home game console. Why is Sony doing this for a stationary device? No clue. Perhaps, it's for those who like the flexibility of taking their console to different rooms throughout the house. The new PS3 Slim boasts a 25% smaller footprint and is supposedly 50% lighter than the current slim model. Moreover, there are two storage capacities and it comes in white and black. These newer models will ditch the slide-in disc drive and will instead use a slide-out tray. Consoles are expected to go on sale in the fall: A 250GB model will go on sale September 25th for $269, which will include Uncharted 3. The 500GB model will include Assassins Creed 3, which will be available October 30th for $299.

Perfect, just in time for a PS4…JK.

Posted by John Ball Categories: Action, E3, PlayStation 3, Sony, Trailers

God of War Ascension

The God of War series is a long-running franchise with tons of fans, most of whom have assumed that the series was over with God of War III killing off the main character, Kratos. But then there is God of War: Ascension, a game only recently announced by Sony.

The game continues to follow the story of Kratos, a rage driven war machine bent on killing the gods. God of War: Ascension is said to take place before the first game, serving as a prequel to the series. Sony held a conference showing off something never before seen in the God of War series--multiplayer. In this interview after the conference we learn that a player can customize their character and align themselves with a god to earn their favor. It will be interesting to see what else God of War: Ascension has for us, E3 is almost here.
