Onrush launches on the 5th of June, new trailer released

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 hours, 29 mins ago

Codemasters have taken to their Onrush Twitter page to say that "there's a stampede coming" for players, which could be in reference to the new trailer that was also just released.



Racing games are not necessarily my cup of tea but that doesn't mean I won't be recognizing a potential rivalry between releases. Burnout Paradise remaster is heading to gamers on March 16th this year, and now we have more recent news that Onrush a Codemasters creation will be debuting on June 5th.


It could be assumed that Burnout might be taking the cake on this one but don't discourage Onrush just as of yet. Onrush might just slot itself very well into the arcade racer genre, the game appears to feature a "Rush" meter which would suggest that once tricks are performed the meter grows granting boost or other perks. It might not be Grand Turismo racing or even Forza, but if you are a gamer that wants to smash into your opponents on the road and be rewarded for it Onrush might just be for you.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 29 mins ago

EA has confirmed they're working on Burnout Paradise Remastered, which will be released on both consoles and the PC and will include nearly all of the DLC from Burnout Paradise.



Burnout Paradise Remastered will be running at up to 4K on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, with EA warning in the trailer for the remastered arcade driving game that "native 4K resolution not available on all platforms", because consoles, I guess. EA has said that the game will run "natively" at 1080p on the PS4 and Xbox One, all at 60FPS. EA has said that Burnout Paradise Remastered won't include the Time Savers Pack, an add-on that unlocked every vehicle in the game.


As for the game itself, it will hit consoles first in digital and retail form on March 16 while PC gamers will have to wait a little while longer, as it'll launch on EA's digital service, Origin. EA hasn't confirmed whether or not Burnout Paradise Remastered will be released on the Nintendo Switch, but EA Access subscribers will get access to it early on March 9, something that is good for 10 hours of play time.

Tesla hackers mine cryptocurrency, access private data

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Cryptocurrency & Mining | Posted: 12 hours, 23 mins ago

It seems that cryptocurrency jacking is the new thing, with Tesla Motors now hit not just once but twice - the first of which with cryptojacking, and then an exposure to data theft.




The electric car maker was hit by hackers recently, something security researchers at cloud security firm RedLock revealed. RedLock said that the unprotected Kubernetes console that Tesla owns saw hackers getting into their systems, and mining cryptocurrency.


Kubernetes is something Google designed, and is used to deploy and manage containerized apps in the enterprise market. Tesla was vulnerable to the hit, as the console was unsecured in their AWS (Amazon Web Services) environment. Varun Badhwar, CEO and co-founder of RedLock said: "We weren't the first to get to it. Clearly, someone else had launched instances that were already mining cryptocurrency in this particular Tesla environment".


Thanks to Tesla not being totally secure, hackers broke into their systems and mined cryptocurrency, but making sure that their CPU usage wasn't at 100% in order to alert system administrators. RedLock explained: "the hackers had most likely configured the mining software to keep the [CPU] usage low to evade detection".

Fortnite and Diablo 3 rumored for the Nintendo Switch

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 13 hours, 26 mins ago

One of the biggest games on the market right now is Epic Games' free-to-play hit Fortnite, and one of the most beloved franchises might not have struck all of the chords in gamers' hearts, but Diablo 3 is still massive.




Now we have rumors floating around that Fortnite and Diablo 3 will be released on the Nintendo Switch, which would be huge. The insider said: "Diablo 3 is in development for the Nintendo Switch and should be out early 2019. They are wanting to implement Local play with multiple switches".


The insider in question is Marcus Sellars, who also tweeted that Fortnite is headed to the Nintendo Switch sometime in August or September. Sellars added: "Wouldn't say fact as it's not confirmed by the developer but yeah it's happening".


Epic Games Worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard said last month that he wanted to see Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch, so maybe we are going to see it very soon. It only makes sense to have one of Epic Games' most successful games on one of Nintendo's most successful consoles of all time.

Samsung unveils massive 30TB SSD, largest capacity SSD ever

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Storage | Posted: 14 hours, 55 mins ago

Samsung has just announced its next generation SSD, something it's calling the PM1643, and it has propelled the South Korean giant to new storage records with up to 30TB on tap.




Samsung's new PM1643 boasts a huge 30.72TB of SSD storage, with the company pushing the new SSD for next-generation storage systems for the government, health and education markets, and others. The new 30TB SSD has enough space to hold thousands of movies and countless files.


The new 30TB SSD is twice the capacity of Samsung's current 15.36TB SSD that it unveiled in 2016 which boasted speeds of 2100MB/sec for reads and 1700MB/sec writes. Samsung combined layers of flash memory into "super-sense" 1TB packages in order to double the SSD storage beast to 30TB.


Samsung started manufacturing the new 30TB SSD last month, with plans to unveil a larger family of drives with lower capacities later this year, with no pricing revealed just yet.
