The countdown has begun for the virtual reality market's big retail debut, with giant players like Oculus and HTC/Valve, revving up their respective engines. But unlike VR headsets like the Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, or LG 360 VR, an Oculus Rift or an HTC Vive isn't just some accessory you buy and put on your head and hope that things magically work. You'll need to make sure that your PC is ready in the first place. And to help with that, Valve has released a SteamVR Performance Test app ahead of the start of the Vive's pre-order period.

NexDock wants to turn smartphones, tablets into laptops

Smartphones and tablets these days, especially the high-end ones, are almost capable of doing anything our computers can, save for a few quirks of the OS and apps they run. But their real limitation isn't exactly the software but the form they come in. Smartphones are great to use on one hand but are terrible with larger content and input. Tablets have a bigger screen space but keyboard input leaves a lot to be desired. Accessories that address these do exist, but in separate pieces. Enter NexDock, practically a portable display attached to a keyboard masquerading and acting as a laptop, with your smartphone or tablet as the brain.

VAIO, Fujitsu, Toshiba PC triumvirate might happen in March

Partly thanks to the rise of smartphones and tablets, the once lucrative PC market has been losing its luster for almost half a decade now. These are desperate times for many PC makers, which call for desperate measures. Three Japanese companies have been reported to be close to showing their desperation, by joining forces to tackle the common foe of declining PC sales.

Square Enix to bring diorama-esque Hitman Go to PC, PS4, Vita

For gamers, the Hitman franchise has always been about stealthily killing your adversaries and targets. Usually, these types of games took on a real-time first person perspective to add to the atmosphere of an anxiety and excitement. But in early 2014, Square Enix turned what was then its newest Hitman title on its head and slapped it on what is best described as a pretty board game. Perhaps riding on the fanfare surrounding the upcoming Hitman title, the game publisher will be taking Hitman GO from mobile to your PC and favorite console or handheld.

Need for Speed for PC trailer teases March 15 release

As promised, Need for Speed is arriving this spring — March 15, to be precise — a launch that had been delayed in September 2015. Though having to wait longer is always disappointing, the postponement was for a good reason: the extra time was needed to give PC gamers unlocked frame rates, something fans had been heavily requesting.

Maru OS tries to bring Continuum to Android with a twist

Microsoft's Continuum has most likely sparked the imagination of many a developer. To be fair, it's not alone or even original. Ubuntu showed off its Convergence idea long before Windows 10 even hit the scene, a dream that has started to become reality with the bq M10 tablet. Now a hitherto unknown group of developers have revealed what they call Maru OS, which brings a touch of Convergence/Continuum to Android. The difference is that you actually have two operating systems on the same device.
