Sony is making some awesome announcements at E3. Meanwhile Lytro is rumored to be making yet another camera, and the LG G3 is not as horrible with battery life as we thought.
The PS Vita TV concept was great when it was launched in Japan, last year. It’s the same console, but adapted to work without the mobile factor. It would simply connect to a DualShock controller and a TV, to give you the PS Vita experience.
We didn’t know if we would ever see it coming to the USA, but Sony has announced today at E3 that it will be coming to the USA and the UK. There is one main difference, though: it will be named PlayStation TV around this part of the world. What makes it even more enticing is the price, which is surprisingly accessible.
This console will only cost $99, which will only include the console. You will also be able to buy the bundle for $139, which will include a DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, an HDMI cable and a copy of the Lego Movie game. Of course, you can play over 1,000 games (though not all games are available) and it will come with full PS4 and PlayStation Now streaming.
Opinion: I believe video game streaming is the future of gaming, and Sony has been a huge supporter in this movement. PlayStation Now streaming was the only reason why I wanted to get a PS Vita, and this console only makes the purchase more exciting.
We have always wondered if Lytro’s technology would ever make it to mobile devices. Well, it turns out it all may work the other way around. New rumors suggest Lytro is trying to bring Android to one of its upcoming devices.
We don’t know much about said device, but @evleaks swears it will be released during the next quarter. We may be hearing more about this relatively soon!
Opinion: We have to wonder just how this Lytro Android device would work. I can assume it will be more camera than Android device, so I assume it won’t have phone capabilities. It would be interesting to see how Android will handle the software side of things, though. Through the camera app? Another app?
When the LG G3 and its stunning QHD display were announced, one of the biggest worries was regarding battery life. Surely, pushing that 5.5-inch screen and all its pixels would take a hit on battery life, right?
LG’s battery technology was said to help immensely, and it seems LG is keeping its promises. In its latest battery tests, PhoneArena has discovered the LG G3 does beat every single other competitor. The device survives for 8 hours and 50 minutes through their custom test, in which they run a web script designed to replicate real-life usage.
Opinion: We can definitely say these test is a little harsh on devices. It states the LG G2 can survive for 6 hours and 48 minutes. I used to own this device and can attest to the fact I was able to make it last up to two days.
