Camp Pokemon app goes mobile for iPhone and iPad

Camp Pokemon app goes mobile for iPhone and iPad

The new Camp Pokemon app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch isn’t the full Pokemon experience. It’ll do an amazing job of bringing you back to the glory days of Pokemon Snap, if that’s your brand of Poke-entertainment, but it’s not quite the full Poke-experience. It does show, on the other hand, how far The Pokemon Company International has gotten from their hard-bar ban on releasing any apps outside the Nintendo ecosphere. It shows that some day we might very well get the real deal.

Instead of releasing the game when everyone is buying massive amounts of gifts for their gift-giving friends, children, and associates, this game will be delayed. No longer a November 18th, 2014 release, Project CARS will be released on the 17th of March, 2015. While Slightly Mad Studios suggests it's not only because of the holiday season schedules of other major studios that they've moved, that certainly is part of it.

PlayStation 4 trumped Xbox One in September sales

PlayStation 4 trumped Xbox One in September sales

In the latest console war, Sony has frequently trumped Microsoft with more PlayStation 4 sales than Xbox One sales. We've seen that reflected many times, such as at the year's beginning when the PS4 was deemed the bestselling console in the US in January. According to NPD, that reign is holding steady, and despite anticipation otherwise, the PlayStation 4 outsold the Xbox One last month. This was despite Microsoft dangling a free game in gamers' faces last month, which many believed would boost the Xbox One's sales numbers.

Archos VR Glasses jump into the virtual reality fray

The tips have proven to be true and French manufacturer Archos has indeed unveiled its next device obsession. While many OEMs are still struggling to join the smartwatch train, Archos perhaps decide that it's more fun to play, quite literally, in a virtual market. Virtual reality, that is.
