Finally, a break from my final exams. I'm going to use the free time to study but first, a little blog post. Let's see what's been happening over the last month. It's been quite alot being chugged out by Apple, Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony. So don't be suprised if I leave somethings out.
Microsoft xBox360 Slim Announced! This new xbox360 packs 250 GB of storage as well built-in WiFi Adapter. No need to buy an extra adapter for Wifi anymore. The 360 Slim is $299.00 US.
- iPhone OS 4.0 (Now iOS4) will be pushed out for download for iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 2G and iPod Touch 3G on Monday. iPad version will follow in the fall. This new update packs 100s of new features including Multi-tasking and Folder-Support. However, for those who can't wait, the Gold Master Beta Build is out for Paid Developers. Please remember, iOS4 requires iTunes 9.2 to function.
- iTunes 9.2 released for Windows and Mac! - People may be like, why post this, its just iTunes. This isn't any iTunes Update, it provides various improvements and bugfixes, support for iOS4 and Folder support. However, there's a catch for jailbreakers. If you try running Spirit on a device with iTunes 9.2 installed, it will send your device into a boot-loop. However, other tools like redsn0w and PwnageTool are fine.
- iPhone4 annouced! This new iPhone packs a 1GHz Processor, 512MB RAM and a new look. It also has new features such as HD Video Recording, Two Cameras (front and back) Face-time, 5 MP Camera and more.
- iOS4 Gold Master Jailbroken! - This only goes for iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G, redsn0w 0.9.5 has support to jailbreak your device on iOS4.0 as well as enable multi-tasking as these devices do not support that feature. Beware, Unlockers stay away from iOS4.0! If you wish to preserve your unlock, iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) can use PwnageTool (Mac Only) to safely go to 4.0.
- Nintendo 3DS revealed! No suprise here as rumours of Nintendo making a new NDS with 3D Technology have been circulating for a long time. Rumours even have it that, this new DS will be more powerful than the Wii...
- Many old games being remade for 3DS (in 3D!!!) Games such as DJ Hero, Street Fighter IV and as far back as StarFox 64 are being made for the 3DS. The full line-up can be found in this post.
- Kid Icarus for 3DS. It's been a while since the last Kid Icarus game, finally, Pit is back boasting improved graphics.
- Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Wii, this is an all new Zelda. Which seems to be carrying new features and graphics.
- Ubisoft reveals Michael Jackson game for Wii and DS. This seems a bit interesting. Uses the Microphone to sing along I guess.
- Sony has annouced the PS3 Move which I believe brings Motion to the PS3.
