Nexus 9 detailed for Android Lollipop release

Apple event predictions: 3D Apple, iPad Air, Mini, Yosemite

Several new bits and pieces are being tipped towards release this week as Apple’s next big event takes place tomorrow, the 16th of October. We’ll be there with bells on - and information releases as fast as you can read them.

Nexus 9 incoming: Nexus 5, 7, 10 leave Play store

This morning it’s become clear that Google means to move some inventory in a very short time. As they’ve done in the past immediately preceding the release of a new product, they’ve taken out the Buy button from several of their main products - Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 - to make way for the next wave. What that’ll mean for you is a new Nexus 9, at least, and perhaps a new Nexus 6 to go along with it. The release of these devices to the play store will likely occur this afternoon.

Halo: Spartan Strike releasing cross-platform

The next Halo title will be a spiritual successor to Halo: Spartan Assault, but this time it’ll be coming with a single release schedule. In this case, it means you’ll be able to purchase it once, on one platform, and you’ll own it on the rest. You’ll be able to save the same in one location and pick up in another. This game will be released on Windows 8, Windows Phone, and through Steam (still on Windows) this December - very soon, that is.

Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire compatible with X and Y

There are a few mixed messages out there today about how compatible Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby will be with Pokemon X and Y. As it turns out, there WILL be SOME compatibility between the lot, but not a massive amount. Neither Primal evolutions nor Mega evolutions will be available in X or Y.
