Destiny set for Xbox 720, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2014

If you've heard anything about the upcoming "game changer" title set to be produced by Bungie over the next 10 years in installments with Activision, you know that it certainly wouldn't make sense for the whole series to be appearing on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In fact the first installment will be on those two consoles, but essentially everything afterward has been confirmed in legal documents to be hitting no less than the PlayStation 4, the Xbox 720, and the PC.

Qualcomm Halo: Inside the tech of the world’s largest wireless car charging trial

Wireless charging has made headlines in recent weeks, but a new Qualcomm Halo trial kicking off in the UK is targeting the devices that live in your garage rather than in your pocket. Just as Google's Nexus 4 and Nokia's Lumia 920 each support wireless charging, rejuicing via simple desk pads rather than the fumble of slotting in a microUSB cable, so chip and wireless specialist Qualcomm sees the future of electric and hybrid urban mobility being wire-free. There's a big difference, though, between a fifty buck charging plate for your phone and a way of cutting the cord for electric vehicles and potentially opening up the road as a dynamic power highway.

John Carmack says PS4, Xbox 720 nothing to be excited about

Game development expert John Carmack believes that the next generation of video game consoles won't be anything to write home about. Carmack said in a recent interview that he was admittedly optimistic about the increased rendering power of an Xbox 720 or PS4, but beyond that he has no grand vision of what to expect. We may be hitting the point of diminishing returns.
