iMac 2020

While all eyes are on the 5G-enabled iPhone 12 lineup set to debut later this year, Apple has some other big announcements set to debut, as well. This includes a revamped iMac that is currently in the works, which will reportedly be a substantial refresh that should catch the eye of those looking to take the plunge.

This information comes from the ever-reliable Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who recently did a Q&A on Periscope with his followers about Apple’s product roadmap. The new iMac will reportedly feature a 23-inch display with a lower price tag , with the increase in display size likely coming from reducing the thickness of the bezels on the current 21.5-inch iMac.

There are many other things that were noted in this Periscope Q&A, which we’ll summarize via the following bullet points:

  • 14-inch MacBook Pro will feature changes like increased screen size and scissor-switch keys
  • There’s a big push to save the HomePod following lackluster sales, which will reportedly be done with a smaller, cheaper model with improved Siri support
  • An improved Apple TV
  • 16-inch MacBook Pro slated to launch around October or November
  • AirPower is NOT dead! The company is still hard at work at making this device possible, though no information on when this may happen was shared.
  • This year’s Apple Watch Series 6 will support sleep tracking
  • AirTags coming later this year, lets you attach them to everyday items to easily find them via Bluetooth
  • High-end over-ear Apple headphones coming this fall
  • Apple’s vehicle development division still focused on self-driving technology, though nothing to announce yet
  • Under-screen fingerprint technology is in the works, but will not be featured in iPhones this year

While this needs to be taken with a grain of salt considering that it isn’t coming directly from Apple, considering the source it’s very likely that most of this will end up panning out. As always, we’ll bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
