NVIDIA’s Android-based handheld gaming console Shield has received a massive update that brings with it several important new features. The first one is the update to Android 4.3 from the 4.2 on the previous build. Android 4.3, as you may know, brings things such as Bluetooth Smart support, improved text input and OpenGL ES 3.0, among other things (although Tegra 4 in the Shield doesn’t actually support OpenGL ES 3.0).

Playstation 4 Launch Preview

Earlier in the year I picked Playstation 4 as my most likely system for the “next-gen”, before it was even unveiled.  Now here we are, just 2 weeks away from the Playstation 4 Launch.  My pre-order has been in since June but now I’ve got to start figuring out the games I want to buy and the ones I may want to just rent.  I like trying out the system exclusives, so i can really see what experiences I can only get on that specific system.  There are also games currently available on the Wii U/PS3/360 that I think I’m looking forward to experiencing on the Playstation 4 to see how far the gap is between generations.  Target is supposed to be having a Buy 2 Get 1 Free Sale on games the week of the PS4 Launch, and that might change some of these “rentals” into a “purchase”
