Starhawk, il seguito di Warhawk di cui si è vociferato da diverso tempo, è stato ufficialmente annunciato nella giornata di venerdì.
Dopo qualche immagine, LightBox Interactive ha finalmente rilasciato un trailer che mostra diverse scene in-game commentate dal presidente della software house Dylan Jobe.
Le novità sembrano essere molte, a partire da un update grafico di tutto rispetto, proseguendo per diverse differenze anche nel gameplay che potete vedere nel video a seguire.
Here’s the first footage from PES2012, Konami’s latest attempt to wrestle back the top spot in the world of football games.And it looks…well, sadly, at this early stage as stilted and wooden as the last few versions. Fans of the series or hardcore football fans will still want to check out the clip, though, especially since it’s narrated by Pro Evo boss Shingo “Seabass” Takatsuka.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is coming Nov. 8, 2011, Kotakuhas learned, delivering with it mammoth battles that engulf a dozen cities around the world including New York, Paris and London.
Multiple sources have shared details of the game’s story, art, sounds and game modes with Kotaku, noting that the game will reshape the landscape of the Call of Duty franchise, bringing an impressive number of eclectic settings, deep multiplayer gaming and a story that ties up nearly all loose ends from previous titles, including the final moments of key figures in the series’ history.
While we haven’t seen the game in action ourselves, we’ve gone to great lengths to nail down as much as possible the veracity of our sources. We believe that the imagery and chief details are accurate. That doesn’t mean things can’t change before release, but this appears to be a full run down of where Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software is on Modern Warfare 3 as they add the final polishing touches.
Nokia’s Ovi Store, Ovi Maps, and Ovi everything else will soon be getting a name change. The Finnish company has announced that it’s “evolving” its software brand identity by renaming its service offerings to Nokia services, starting with new devices in July and August. This transition is expected to last into 2012 and was pretty much inevitable in the wake of Nokia’s hookup with Microsoft earlier this year. Part of that agreement was for Nokia software, Maps in particular, to be made available in other Windows Phone devices and across Microsoft’s range of services, so it makes sense for Nokia to literally put its name on its wares. Nothing structural will be changing about software roadmaps or plans up in Finland, this will be just a new nameplate atop the same strategy as outlined previously.
Tutti gli amanti della velocità non potranno di certo farsi sfuggire Speedhunters, nuovo DLC sviluppato da EA per il simulatore di guida Shift 2: Unleashed, titolo che sin dalla sua prima uscita ha saputo riscuotere un ottimo successo di vendite.

- Miyatomi Drag Strip
- Miyatomi Mile
- Aguera Drag Strip
- Agueda Aerodrome

If you’ve somehow not heard of the ThinkPad X1 yet, you join us at a good time. The well leaked laptop has shown up at an X Series comparison site, put together by Lenovo itself, where yet more specs have been made known. The 13.3-inch display is dubbed a SuperBright HD inifinity panel, which to you and us simply means it’s built using IPS technology. There’s also an integrated fingerprint reader, a buttonless touchpad, USB 3.0 connectivity, and a promised 10-hour battery life with a slice battery. Weighing in at 1.36kg (3lbs) and measuring about 16mm (0.625 inches) in thickness, it’s described as Lenovo’s thinnest ThinkPad yet. Last time we heard, we were told to expect it on May 17th, guess those webmasters are getting the show started a little early. One more glamor shot of the X1 can be found after the break.
Is there anything you don’t know about Google’s blowout I/O 2011 developer conference? If you’ve read our recap of happenings over in San Francisco this week, you should be well on your way to becoming the most knowledgeable Google geek in your local data cluster, but if you’re looking for all the key info in a more digestible format like, say, video, Google’s taking care of you as well. Both of the company’s I/O keynotes have been posted to YouTube, where they can be consumed in up to 720p resolution, and we’ve done our bit too by embedding them for you after the break. So what are you waiting for, your Googlification awaits!
We’re just getting into the swing of spring, flowers blooming and skeeters biting, but already it’s been a great year for Samsung — if we ignore the whole lawsuit thing. Just a few weeks ago the company delivered to us our highest scoring Android phone yet, the Galaxy S II and, while that handset has not appeared on American shores, we were graced with the Droid Charge, which offers LTE speed, strong battery life, and an on-contract price that slightly exceeds its design.
Not so with the company’s latest assault on American carriers. It’s the Infuse 4G, it’s $199 on-contract, and it has a decidedly high-end feel. It even looks a little like the S II — if you squint. This is its own phone, though, a giant 4.5-inch screen setting it apart from its predecessors, and a giant battery inside giving it plenty of life. But is it really as good as it looks?
