Destiny now has a Trial, Demo appetizer

Destiny now has a Trial, Demo appetizer

Online shooter Destiny might be one of the hottest games this year, but not everyone is prepared just yet to take the plunge. A plunge that will cost them $60, provided they already have the compatible consoles to begin with.

And they can even save their progress and reclaim it if and when they decide to buy the game after all.

This week Chevrolet has revealed the Chaparral 2X VGT concept car, a vehicle designed specifically for the Vision Gran Turismo project. This vehicle was developed exclusively for fans of the PlayStation racing game Gran Turismo 6, and is indeed a fully working vehicle.

In recent times some Grand Theft Auto V gamers on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have had trouble transferring over Online characters -- if they hadn't played since 2013, that is.

Rockstar Games had responded to the concerns, saying that it was looking into the issue and would have more to say later on. That spawned a series of new updates today, ultimately leading to the now-available patch for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles specifically.

Darkside Ollie hits market for the evil robot lover in you

Earlier this year we had a peek at the Sphero Ollie, a two-wheeled remote-control robot from the same folks that made the original spherical Sphero device. Now the two-wheeled beast has been given a slight reboot in an all-black design called Darkside Ollie. This unit will cost you just a bit more than the original Ollie, and not just because it comes in a limited-edition color scheme. This unit has a whole lot more in the box as well - Prime Hubs and Flux Hubs and Turbo Tires, oh my!
