The release date for the official Iron Man 3 game is quickly approaching. The game will launch next week on April 25, but in the meantime, Gameloft has been teasing us with various teaser trailers of the game, and today they released another one that shows off some of the various Iron Man suits you can strap on, as well as other in-app purchases.
Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour was first released back in December for iOS and Android, but Windows Phone 8 ended up getting the shaft. However, Gameloft has announced that the game is now available on Windows Phone 8, allowing users of Microsoft's new platform to play one of the most intense mobile first-person shooter games out there.
Windows Phone devices may not have caught up to the popularity of iOS and Android just yet, but developers aren't ignoring the platform by any means. Case in point: Gameloft just released its newest racing game, Asphalt 7: Heat, into the Windows Phone Store, where Windows Phone 8 users can play the game on their Microsoft-driven device.
Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. Today a purported case for the iPad 5 surfaced, and it has more than a little in common with the rear case for the iPad mini. We saw a leaked image of a white Nexus 4, while we also heard that Google is planning a Nexus 4 and 7 refresh for the spring that includes white devices. Speaking of the Nexus 4, the sought after device became available on the Google Play Store once again today, after weeks of being sold out.
One of the lesser-seen concepts that appeared earlier this year down deep in the Audi stand at CES 2013 was this magical bit of conceptual madness: the Swarm tail-light. This light recalls (as the title of this post implies) the fantastical visions of the brightly-lit future of the Speed Racer movie from the Wachowski tag team of excellence back a few years ago - complete with wild color combinations. What we're not sure of at the moment is if this greatness will inspire better driving or more distracted crash-ready action.
Yesterday, mobile gamers were disappointed to see that Gameloft's new title, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour had been pulled from the Google Play Store just a few hours after launch. This came on top of a slight delay that saw the game pushed back past its original December 6 release date, so fans were already pretty annoyed by the time the game was pulled. At the time, Gameloft said some users were having issues downloading the game and that it had decided to stop offering it until these problems were worked out.
Welcome to Friday evening everyone - the weekend is beginning for most of us, but before we dive in, let's recap the news from the day. Late this afternoon, we found out that Gameloft's full line up of games for 2013 had leaked, which is exciting to say the least. Unfortunately, all is not well in the gaming world, as BioShock Infinite has been pushed back yet again. This time it's been delayed into March, which means the wait for it has gotten longer by a month. We learned today that Best Buy will have to pay out $27 million to TechFoward for stolen trade secrets, which is not good for a company that has been struggling lately.
Right on the money, both Rockstar and Gameloft have released their respective games to the mobile market. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour are now available for purchasing and downloading in the iTunes App Store. While Modern Combat 4 is planned to be released on Android "shortly after" today, Vice City was actually planned to have a simultaneous launch. However, the Android version seems to be MIA for the time being.
Both Apple's iTunes App Store and Google's Play store for Android collectively have over 1.4 million apps to choose from, and surprisingly, more than 50% of the revenue made by these stores in the United States goes to just 25 app developers, according to analytics firm Canalys, which performed a daily survey over a 20-day period in November.
