The DualShock 4 wireless controller has been kicking around for a while now, so it was only a matter of time before PlayStation did something to give it a little marketing boost. And what's the easiest way to do that? New colors, of course. Joining the already extensive color lineup are four new schemes: Berry Blue, Sunset Orange, Blue Camo and Copper. They'll be available across retailers in the US and Canada from September, at $65 USD / $75 CAD each. Take a look at the new colors below.
When 11-11: Memories Retold was announced, it promised a war drama rife with the "emotional" human experience. Now, Bandai Namco, Wallace & Gromit's Aardman Animation Studios and DigixArt have released the first trailer for the narrative adventure. It introduces you to the two main characters from opposing sides during WW1 and shows you the game's 3D painterly style and beautiful color palette. One of the main characters is a German soldier named Kurt voiced by Sebastian Koch (Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies) who joined the war to find his son who's missing in action. The other is Harry, a Canadian photographer played by Elijah Wood, who'll show you the harsh realities of war through his lens.
14 months after HTC and Intel first showed off their wireless VR prototype, the two are finally ready to ship the product. According to HTC's announcement today, the Intel WiGig-based Vive Wireless Adapter is priced at $299.99 and works with both Vive and Vive Pro, though the latter requires an additional $60 for a "compatibility pack" -- it includes a connection cable, foam padding and an attachment device. For those who have been longing for this upgrade, they can pre-order it at Amazon, Best Buy, Microsoft, NewEgg and HTC's very own Vive.com starting from September 5th. This will be followed by the official launch on the 24th.
Back in April, Resogun and Super Stardust HD developer Housemarque teased a mysterious multiplayer project called Stormdivers. The reveal, though, showed little beyond a forest locale, some man-made structures and the promise of "hard flying and heavy hitting gameplay." If you've been waiting for more information, good news -- the indie developer has released a new trailer today showing off the game's battle royale-inspired combat. It reveals a host of weapons, including machetes, assault weapons and rocket launchers, as well as futuristic jetpacks, portable shields, and some fantastical powers including invisibility and lightning-fast dashes.
Wireless gaming mice are anathema to esports pros for a reason -- when you're that skilled, even a modest amount of lag can throw you off. Logitech is betting that it can fulfill their dreams, though. It's launching a wireless version of its G Pro mouse that was designed for (and with the help of) competitive gamers. It draws on both Logitech's increasingly familiar Lightspeed tech for near-zero lag and supports PowerPlay wireless charging, but it also touts the company's high-precision 16,000DPI sensor and a 2.8oz weight that makes it easier to flick around in the heat of a tournament.
Steam TV is online again after Valve briefly pushed it live last week. The platform is currently streaming a live broadcast of The International 2018, Valve's Dota 2 esports tournament. While the website still doesn't have a lot of features to offer, you'll be able to see the chat room even if you don't log into your Steam account. You'll have to use your log-in credentials if you want to participate in the chat or to watch the game with friends, but if you're fine watching alone and keeping your thoughts to yourself, all you need to do is go to the website. Take note that the video refused to load for us on Chrome or Safari and only worked on Firefox.
