NYT: New Apple TV will rival Xbox One and PS4, but with a big twist

A revamped Apple TV device is going to be one of the new products Apple unveils on stage during its enormous media event on Wednesday. While many believe the major hardware revision and software revision are mostly related to Apple’s plans for taking over the living room, with a cable-like streaming subscription of its own, a new report says Apple is making a play for winning the living room when it comes to gaming.

The new Apple TV will have the more advanced hardware to take on traditional consoles including Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but Apple might be eying a particular subset of the gaming community. More →

Sorry, PS4 Owners… Sony Says No Backward Compatibility for You

Sorry, PS4 Owners… Sony Says No Backward Compatibility for You

Microsoft had a heck of an E3 this year. From the first announcement to the last demonstration, the company’s E3 press conference was a fan-favorite in 2015. And the company’s Minecraft demo on HoloLens was absolutely mind-blowing. It was a much-needed win for Microsoft, which has been lagging behind Sony since their current-generation video game consoles first launched ahead of the holidays in 2013.

The first announcement Microsoft made during its E3 event was Xbox One backwards compatibility, which will allow Xbox One owners to play many of their old Xbox 360 games on their new consoles. PS4 owners have been wondering whether or not the same feature would be added to the PlayStation 4, and now they finally have their answer. More →

Yet another way our smartphones are hurting us

More and more studies are looking into the potentially hazardous side effects of screen use on youngsters, from young children — who shouldn’t be given a tablet or smartphone for distraction purposes — to teenagers, who might develop certain sleeping disorders from too much smartphone, tablet, TV or console access.

A new study published in the BMJ Open journal now reveals that scientists have found out that the more hours teenagers spend looking at a device during the day, the less they sleep, and the longer it takes them to fall asleep. More →

It looks like Sony just won E3

The annual E3 conference isn’t really a competition… but if it were, Sony would have just won. Microsoft and Sony each pulled out all the stops on Monday at E3 2014 and did their best to prove that this new console generation will be the best in history. Each company did a tremendous job, showing off exciting exclusive titles and revealing hotly anticipated non-exclusive games as well. Gamers in both camps will have plenty to be excited about in 2014 and 2015 but according to one industry watcher, E3 2014 painted the same picture we’ve seen since the PS4 and Xbox One were first unveiled: Sony is winning.

Why Microsoft dumped the Xbox One’s Kinect requirement, in the company’s own words

Sony is still winning the PlayStation 4 vs Xbox One sales battle according to market research firm NPD Group, which says that the PS4 has outsold Microsoft’s new console in April for the fourth month in a row.
