You can now upload jaw-dropping 60FPS videos to YouTube

There has been a heated debate regarding frame rate in video games for quite some time, but it came to a head with the release of the PS4 and Xbox One. When it became clear that 1080p 60FPS wasn’t going to be possible for every current-gen game, gamers were disappointed, but now developers have one more incentive to crank up the visuals on their upcoming releases. This week, YouTube implemented a new feature which allows 60 frame per second video uploads. More →

The biggest reason Android fans should be happy Lenovo bought Motorola

If you were worried that Motorola changing hands after its recent $2.9 billion acquisition by Lenovo would affect its products in any meaningful way: don’t be. Motorola has managed to avoid much of the bloatware and the unwanted features that have pervaded phones from other vendors, and it’s going to stay that way. That’s the message Motorola CEO Rick Osterloh wanted to convey in a recent blog post on the Motorola blog. More →

Hands on with the new Super Smash Bros. for Wii U’s 8-player mode

Earlier this week, Nintendo invited me to its New York office to go hands-on with the final build of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. I’d had the opportunity to play the console version of the new Smash Bros. twice before, but this was the first time I was able to see all of the new modes and features, including 8-Player Smash, Smash Tour and the Amiibo NFC figures.

This is the latest prototype of Google’s incredible Project Ara modular phone

There are few projects in the smartphone industry with as much potential as Google’s modular smartphone, Project Ara. Just last week, Google announced a dedicated store for the phone where developers will be able to sell their modules directly to consumers without having to go through any third-party retailers. It’ll be at least a few months before you can start hot-swapping the modules yourself, but the folks at Phonebloks got a chance to check out the latest prototype at NK Labs, and there’s video evidence to prove it.

OnePlus can’t do anything right these days, completely flubs preorders for the One

After months of anticipation, OnePlus finally opened preorders for its CyanogenMod smartphone for a single hour on October 27th. At least, that was the plan. Shortly after OnePlus One preorders opened, the site’s servers began to cave under the increased traffic. Many users couldn’t log in or complete their orders, so the preorder event was extended to three hours. Still, as the company notes, this “left far too many users frustrated, disappointed and order-less.” More →

Returning players will receive exclusive GTA V content for PS4, Xbox One and PC

The rerelease of Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most anticipated video game launches of the new generation, but Rockstar is aware that many of the customers who already bought the game once are going to need a few incentives to consider double-dipping. The graphical overhaul and expanded multiplayer options might be enough for some, but Rockstar is sweetening the deal with exclusive content as well. More →

Before everyone finally got their hands on the iPhone 6 Plus, it wasn’t uncommon to hear concerns about its size. iPhone users that hadn’t been acquainted with a phablet pictured something along the lines of a phone just marginally smaller than the iPad mini, which, of course, was more than a slight exaggeration.

On Tuesday, Sony is finally going to roll out the first substantial update for the PS4. We’ve written repeatedly about the disappointing pace of system updates since launch, but firmware 2.0 should be enough to tide PS4 owners over until after the holiday season.
