LeEco's Le Max 2 was announced more than a year ago, and we are still waiting for its successor. According to sources, the company will announce the Le Max 3 soon, but the exact date hasn't been revealed yet.

However, the first leaks are already out there, and now, the latest one gives us the best look at the phone so far.

 

The photos show a design similar to the one of the LeEco Max 2, but with one huge difference - the Le Max 3 will feature a dual rear camera setup. According to the leak, the fingerprint sensor will remain on the back of the phone.

Elder Scrolls 6 will happen, but not in full development

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2017 7:26 pm

E3 2016 - Bethesda will indeed make The Elder Scrolls VI, and the team already has an idea of what they want to do. But the technology isn't here yet, so the studio is working on three new "big and crazy projects" in total, but two of these games will come before Elder Scrolls VI.

A bit ago PC Gamer published an article that made it seem Bethesda Game Studios may not actually make The Elder Scrolls VI. I thought I'd clear things up for people and highlight what Bethesda's Pete Hines said at E3 2017 and match them up with what Todd Howard said last year.

 

To re-iterate, yes, Bethesda is making The Elder Scrolls VI, but the game isn't currently in active development. Bethesda Game Studios is currently making three "big and crazy projects" that will be "totally unique and totally different" than anything else the studio has done before. One of these projects is Elder Scrolls VI, but the game isn't in active development like the other two games. The projects will also be massive Skyrim-sized juggernauts that span multiple years of development and overlap with one another to make something fresh and interesting.

Bethesda is all in on Xbox One X support

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2017 6:31 pm

E3 2017 - Bethesda plans to support Microsoft's new Xbox One X by updating their core games to leverage the new console's high-end hardware.

 

 

New and existing Bethesda Softworks games will be updated with enhancements to tap Xbox One X's robust hardware upgrades, Bethesda exec Pete Hines confirmed. Expect to see all of Bethesda's new titles like Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, The Evil Within II, and Dishonored 2's new Death of the Outsider DLC get some sort of optimization upgrades including 4K with beefier frame rates and other enhancements. These upgrades will also come to Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition too.

 

"We're looking for all of our studios to add a level of support for Xbox One X. We Tweeted out last night that we're working right now to get Skyrim SE and Fallout 4 supported on the X," Hines said in a recent interview with Geoff Keighely. "We're working right now to get both of those titles supported with higher resolution, True 4K, higher frame rates, etc. The games will take advantage of the hardware and Microsoft's been grateful and Phil Spencer came out last year to tell us what they're doing and walk us through a tech demo to let all of our guys get up to speed on what Xbox One X is capable of doing and how we want to embrace it and incorporate it into our games."

Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer gameplay footage released

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2017 5:29 pm

Some of the first multiplayer gameplay footage from Call of Duty: WWII is here, and boy - does it look like trash. The video is courtesy of YouTuber 'jackfrags', with the gameplay captured on the PS4 version of the game.

 

 

First off, it looks alright for a PS4 game - but nothing compared to the Frostbite-powered Battlefield 1 or deliciously beautiful Star Wars Battlefront II. Second, the gameplay looks like recycled garbage from the last few oh-so-meh Call of Duty games. There are multiple game modes in COD: WWII, with War, Domination, and TDM - and a new female character that you can play as well.

 

Activision needs to retire the Call of Duty franchise before it launches with a truly next-gen engine and some game changing new features, because in its current form, it's only a cash cow for the company with pre-hype in the months before launch far exceeding the online chatter for the game post-launch.

Monster Hunter World with online co-op announced

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2017 4:27 pm

E3 2017 - Capcom is bringing one of its most popular franchises to the cross-platform world of online gaming.

 

 

Capcom has announced Monster Hunter World, a huge online RPG experience on PS4, Xbox One and PC that will unify the East and West with online cross-play. Monster Hunter World features "living, breathing ecosystem" that up to four players can explore together via a newly designed drop-in, drop-out online multiplayer system. And one of the biggest surprises is that Monster Hunter World won't release on Nintendo hardware.

 

Monster Hunter coming to Xbox and PC in the West is a big deal; the console has missed Xbox and PC platforms in the West since its debut, and this kind of cross-platform integration is something that Capcom highlighted in its recent financial earnings call. The publisher promises to revive dormant IP and bring existing key IP to all platforms in an effort to earn more revenues across the globe--and based on the reception from Monster Hunter World, it seems like they've succeeded with this game alone.

By: Lana Jelic | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Jun 14, 2017 2:37 pm

Lately, we've heard more and more rumors about Apple's upcoming flagship. While we still don't actually know whether or not Apple will call their new phone the iPhone 7S or iPhone 8, the latest reports claim that it might not be a matter of 'or' but 'and.'

A new leak has appeared showing the upcoming device's front and back panels. According to the report, the first image shows the panels of the iPhone 8, which should feature an almost bezel-less AMOLED display. The rear dual camera is placed vertically on the back of the phone, as previously rumored.

 

The leaked image also show that there is no fingerprint scanner on the iPhone8's panels, meaning it is possible that the fingerprint sensor will go under the screen, as rumored.

NVIDIA will be giving away a free copy of Destiny 2 to people who purchase a GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti, which is a big deal after the original Destiny was a console exclusive.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2017 5:12 am

Rocket League is one of the most played games on the market right now, winning over 150 'Game of the Year' awards since its release, and after rumors of the game hitting the Nintendo Switch, it has been confirmed.

 

 

Rocket League will be released on the Switch before the end of the year, and better yet it'll have cross-network play between the Steam and Xbox One versions of the game. I'm going to stop right here and congratulate the team at Psyonix and Microsoft for allowing cross network play for Rocket League, this is a huge achievement on its own and will only spur the Rocket League community and gamers alike.
