IFA 2015 is almost upon us. It's looking to be pretty interesting this year, if we do say so ourselves. With Microsoft on hand as well as a bunch of its OEM partners, we're pretty confident the Windows 10 product ecosystem is about to grow some more.
There are few weeks of the year that can flood a news feed quite like IFA, and the front page is only half the story. For every surprise out of Berlin, including the 'behind-the-scenes' stuff, here's where to follow our team.
The last of the year's big trade shows is almost upon us as we pack our bags and head to Berlin, Germany for IFA 2015.
IFA is more like CES in the sense that it's a full-on consumer electronics show, where something like MWC is focused on mobile. That means that besides smartphones and tablets you'll find laptops and connected smart-devices nestled between the halls filled with toasters and washing machines.
In particular, IFA often has a large contingence of PCs. Perhaps not on the scale that you'd find at Computex, but nevertheless abundant. There's no Lumia event scheduled as was initially rumored, but Microsoft is an exhibitor this year and will be presenting an OEM partner focused keynote.
So, what are we expecting to see, hoping for or just taking a wild stab in the dark at? Here's our full show preview.
Every week, new games are released for the Xbox One. Whether they are indie titles or AAA titles, we want to make sure they're on your radar. So get your wallet ready and clear some space on your hard drive. Let's take a look at what's coming out this week for Xbox One.
In July, Microsoft announced that unlocked versions of its 10.8-inch Surface 3 tablet with LTE hardware would be available "through Microsoft stores, authorized resellers and partner retailers in late August." Now the company has confirmed a slight delay in its release and that it willl be coming out on September 19 in the US.
In November 2014, the popular language learning app Duolingo finally added support for the Windows Phone platform for the first time. It seems as if Duolingo is happy with the response as it has recently updated its app to support Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile as well.
Developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher 2K Games are allowing any Xbox One or PC owner to play the full version of Evolve for free starting on Sept. 4 at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time (3:01 a.m. Eastern time). The sci-fi 4v1 first-person shooter was released earlier this year.
The annual IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany is just a few days away, and Microsoft will not only be exhibiting at the show this year, but it will also host a press event on Friday, September 4 that will be livestreamed starting at 3 p.m. local time (9 a.m. Eastern time and 6 a.m. Pacific time).
Microsoft is rumored to launch two flagship Windows 10 Mobile smartphones later in 2015: the Lumia 950 XL (codenamed Cityman and the Lumia 950 (codenamed Talkman). A recent report claims that both devices could support Qualcomm's Quick Charge technology that has allowed other smartphones to charge their batteries up much faster than normal.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is finally here, and for better or worse, it could be the final Metal Gear Solid ever made.
Controversy marred the build-up to MGSV's launch. Long-time director Hideo Kojima has reportedly been ousted by Konami, following internal conflicts. Similar reports say that Konami are treating staff at Kojima Productions with an unfairness, pending dismissal once the game ships. Konami have been scrubbing all mention of Hideo's name from the game's marketing materials, right after cancelling a high-profile Silent Hill reboot helmed by Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro. What a mess.
Going into this review, I had to wonder if the reported drama at Kojima Productions would have an impact on MGSV's quality. At this early stage, it's hard to claim that it has. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is damn good, but I do have concerns.
Square Enix is getting closer to taking fans of the Deus Ex games series on another adventure. The publisher revealed today that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be released on February 23, 2016, for the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 platforms.
