HP launched a brand new budget friendly tablet with a 10-inch display and a nice set of specs to boot. The HP 10 Plus comes equipped with a 1920 x 1080 resolution 10-inch panel, an ARM Cortex A7 quad-core processor clocked at 1GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 5MP primary camera, 16 GB of internal storage memory and 7,700 mAh Li-ion battery. These might not be the best specs ever featured on a tablet, but they’re actually pretty decent all things considered, especially since you won’t have to pay an arm and a leg for this tablet. HP only charges $279.99 for the device and you can already purchase it either from the company’s own store or from Amazon.

The HP 10 Plus runs on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system and features a variety of useful apps such as Skype, Google Street View, Youtube, Chrome, Gmail, Google Play and many more. That being said, the tablet does have a few drawbacks and is not particularly impressive in terms of performance. The processor seems to be its biggest weakness and the battery will only last for about 6 hours or so before you need to reach for the charger. Also, you will only get 16 GB of storage straight out of the box, which isn’t exactly a lot. On the bright side, the HP 10 Plus does feature a microSD card slot, so at least you have the option of adding addition storage memory if needed.

All in all, the HP 10 Plus looks like it could offer a pretty good bang for you buck. There are certainly other good 10-inch tablets out there, but its biggest competitor will most likely be the ASUS Memo Pad FHD.

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?
