If you were just dying to try on a pair of fancy electronic glasses, Google has just made it easier for you to do so. The tech giant finally made its sought after Google Glass wearable device widely available and they didn’t even make a big deal about it. The Explorer Edition of the smartglasses come in black, red, white, blue and grey colors and will cost you no less than $1500. Google Glass is now available on the Google Play Store, but only in the US and a few other countries for the time being. However, the company says that they’re working on bringing the device to more countries as well in the near future.

This is definitely not surprising as there are many benefits to selling a product worldwide. But it’s hard to say how many people will be able to afford Google Glass seeing as how Google doesn’t seem too keen on lowering the price any time soon. On the bright side, the company is including a free pair of frames or shades with any Google Glass purchase. Moreover, the folks over at Mountain View have also improved their sales pitch in an effort to convince customers that the smartglasses are worth buying. “Glass is smart eyewear that lets you live lighter, and stay in the here and now,” Google said.

Be that as it may, one can not overlook the fact that this is a pretty expensive product and still not very appealing from a design standpoint. While the price might not change any time soon, the design will, according to several media outlets. Google is said to be working on a new version of Google Glass, which looks much more similar to a pair of regular glasses. This upcoming variant will feature an internally mounted display and thick frames that can house all the hardware. Nothing is official at this point, but Google Glass will likely undergo a number of changes in order to appeal to more customers and we might end up seeing these changes sooner rather than later.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
