PlayStation’s Shawn Layden: ‘No Man’s Sky’ hasn’t yet achieved its ‘incredible vision’

No Man’s Sky has seen its share of controversy since its August release, with its vast, nearly limitless world receiving praise while criticism was directed at just how little there actually is to do on each planet. Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chair Shawn Layden has weighed in with his own opinions on the matter, and he suggests that the game could very well achieve developer Hello Games’ massive vision in due time.Speaking to Geoff Keighley during an episode of “Live With YouTube Gaming” (thanks to “NYstate” on ), Layden said that “a very small team had a very huge ambition” when the project began, and that updates and continued development will allow the game to inch closer to the fully fleshed-out, living universe suggested by early No Man’s Sky gameplay demonstrations.“They’re still working at it. of self-isolation.Moyes is no longer self-isolating following his meeting with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta .The West Ham manager has been quarantined for seven days after he embraced the Spaniard, who tested positive for coronavirus earlier this week. They’re still updating it. They’re trying to get close enough … or closer to what their vision was,” Layden told Keighley. “I think what we learned from that is we don’t want to stifle ambition.”Layden later added that the game industry is the only industry where “everyone has the courage to say ‘yes,’” and that developers “just don’t get all the way there” at first.Layden isn’t the first PlayStation executive to speak on this matter. Back in September, Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida said that director Sean Murray had promised more features than could be realistically delivered, and that “he didn’t have a PR person” assisting him when speaking to the press.The promise of additional features might be too little and too late for early No Man’s Sky players.

Man City, Chelsea target talks up €60m Premier League move

The highly-rated Juventus centre-back reportedly almost made the move to join Antonio Conte at Chelsea last summer and he remains a target for the Blues, while Man City are also believed to be interested.The 29-year-old was even hailed as one of City boss Pep Guardiola’s favourite players.Speaking after last season’s Bayern Munich v Juventus clash, Guardiola said: “There are moments when you are up against [Paul] Pogba, [Mario] Mandzukic, [Alvaro] Morata and [Leonardo] Bonucci – one of my all-time favourite players – and [Gianluigi] Buffon, so you can’t expect to come here and dominate for 90 minutes.”Bonucci, 29, has been speaking about Guardiola’s kind words and in an interview by So Foot he admitted the Premier League was intTierney remains alive.Sky Sports says the deal is almost complete with Arsenal simply needing to bump their offer up a tad. The Hoops want in the region of £25million for their star left-back, 22, with Tierney thought to be interested in a move to triguing.“When the best manager in the world says you’re one of his favourite players, you act like it’s nothing, but you still can’t help but have a smile on your lips,” Bonucci told So Foot (translated by ). “This praise only confirms my important progress. It’s always nice.“It fascinates me,” added the Italy icontent_imgnternational, when asked about the Premier League. “When I can, I watch English games, and not only for the quality of the players on display.“I’m hot-headed, and I love the passion that exudes from their packed stands.

I hope to honour the contract,” said Bonucci.

Nomad giving away chargers for Pebble devices after Fitbit takeover

content”content_imgitemprop=”articleBody”>Pebble smartwatch owners may be feeling left in the dust after the company announced it was shutting down following its acquisition by Fitbit. Pebble is no longer manufacturing or selling any devices and don’t expect much — if any — support for your device. But another company with a similar backstory is throwing Pebble owners a bone.Like Pebble, Nomad debuted on Kickstd deserves a longer deal at Chelsea.The striker struck in Wednesday night’s Europa League final against Arsenal as the Blues ranout 4-1 winners.Menes enthused: “(Eden) Hazard precisely, has also produced a large part for what was undoubtedly his lastarter in 2012. While it didn’t rake in millions like Pebble, it was successful enough that the company now has a portfolio of mobile and wearable accessories.Pebble’s demise has had an effect on Nomad as the company was set to release a new charger for the watch — those plans have been ruined with the acquisition, but the company is taking it in stride by .“The Pebble story was a big inspiration to companies like ours,” said Noah Dentzel, Nomad’s CEO. “Understandably, we were truly saddened to hear that Pebble recently had to cease operations in the wake of some of the challenges that we all face as growing hardware companies. It was also in 2012 that Nomad got started with our own Kickstarter project, ChargeCard. While our $160,000 is small potatoes compared to Pebble’s epic whopper of a campaign, we nonetheless got the funds we needed to get our production up and running.”Nomad was going to price the charger at $15, but anyone can grab up to two per household for free — you only have to pay for shipping.There is a key-sized cable for the original Pebble, or you can grab two adapters for the Pebble Time and Pebble 2. The adapters work with MicroUSB or USB Type-C cables, allowing you to charge your device with the USB cable you carry around.“We had originally planned to retail this product for $14.95, but decided that we’d rather offer it up Raheem Sterling take his game to a new level.Rodgers worked with Sterling at Liverpool.”What I loved about Raheem was that for a young boy he knew what he wanted to be,” Rodgers said. “I ask young players what is it that they want to achieve.

AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 480 8GB card won’t be that expensive after all

Whoops! While we’ve known from the start that the 4GB version of AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 480 card will have a suggested retail price of $199, in regard to the 8GB model. The company previously flashed a listing on the social network showing a suggested retail price of $229, but that post was presumably removed by AMD Poland once the price tag went viral.As a refresher, the two Radeon RX 480 cards will be based on AMD’s Polaris 10 XT architecture and 14-nanometer FinFET process technology. They’ll have a base clock speed of 1,266MHz and 2,304 stream processors cranking out a compute performance of up to 5.8 TFLOPs. The 150-watt cards are backed by a 256-bit memory bus interface, a memory speed of 2,000MHz, and a memory bandwidth of 256GB per second. implies that consumers won’t see custom designs when the Radeon RX 480 cards hit the market later this month. Even more, AMD reportedly “nailed it” in regard to the cards’ cooling system, as they’re quiet, look great, aa.Zidane admits they’re battling with injury absences.He said, “We must not change our mentality. We have to continue with what we’re doing, nothing is going to change because we won the Super Cup. We are good, prepared, the season is very long and wnd “perform.” No other information regarding the two AMD cards was provided.The idea behind the new Radeon RX Series is to pack better performance per watt, meaning AMD wants to reach a larger audience by offering cards that perform great but don’t break the bank. The launch is part of the company’s new “Water Drop” strategy in cranking out new graphics architectures to high volume segments. In other words, AMD wants to bring affordable, VR-capable graphics solutions to the general consumer for very little money.“The Radeon RX Series will address a substantial opportunity in PC gaming: more than 13.8 million PC gamers who spend $100-300 to upgrade their graphics cards, and 84 percent of competitive and AAA PC gamers,” the company said during Computex in early June.“With Polaris architecture-based Radeon RX Series graphics cards, AMD intends to redefine the gaming experience in its class, introducing dramatically improved performance and efficiency, support for compelling VR experiences, and incredible features never before possible at these prices.”In addition to the two RX 480 cards, AMD also has the Radeon RX 470 and Radeon RX 460 graphics chips slated for a launch in late June as well. These should be even cheaper in price, the former utilizing 4GB of GDDR5 video memory and the latter using only 2GB of GDDR5 video memory. The RX 470 is based on the Polaris 10 Pro architecture and will have a 1,206MHz clock speed, slower memory bandwidth and speed than content_imgthe RX 480, and a thermal envelope of 110 watts. The Radeon RX 460 is based on the Polaris 11 architecture and will have a thermal envelope of port says United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an admirer of the Croatia international and he identified the midfielder as a potential target back in February.The Red Devils reportedly enquired into the availability of Rakitic three weeks ago and havearound 75 watts.That all said, the price of the 4GB and 8GB Radeon RX 480 cards are actually expected to be higher than their respective $199 and $229 suggested price tags, especially in regions where supply will be limited. We shall see how much consumers will actually be required to fork out when they go retail on June 29.

Uber just got hit with a massive fine over how it classifies its drivers

It’s an issue that has been rumbling on ever since the first Uber hit the streets back in 2011: Are the men and women that operate vehicles on Uber’s platforms “employees of the company,” or are they, as an Uber executive once described them, “independent, third-party transportation providers”?Uber has always considered them as self-employed, which exempts it from having to offer the kind of labor protections and benefits enjoyed by regular company employees, saving it a huge amount of money in the process.The argument over how to classify its millions of drivers globally has just landed the company with a whopping $649 million fine in a decision that could have serious repercussions for Uber’s business and the wider gig economy.Ne target for Arsenal.Arsenal are looking to Matviyenko to shore up their leaky back four after the Ukrainian’s agent confirmed an approach from the Premier League club. New boss Mikel Arteta is keen to bring in alternative defensive options before thew Jersey’s Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DLWD), which announced the fine on Thursday, November 14, accuses Uber of misclassifying its drivers as independent contractors rather than as employees, and as a result says Uber owes $530 million for four years’ worth of unpaid employment taxes, the reported.The figure finished up at $649 million after officials added $ Cup as English outfit Liverpool bid for glory in Qatar, reports, /.The deal with Fifa will see the BBC air every match from the Club World Cup across its linear and digital channels.

It’s a cost the company doesn’t want to bear, ensuring the issue won’t be going away anytime soon.

Owl Car Cam brings 24-hour outside and inside monitoring to your vehicle

CloseIf you’ve ever noticed an unexplained dent or ding on your car, the Owl Car Cam may be able to help you track down the culprit. This new always-connected camera that monitors your vehicle from both the inside and out, can notify you of any safety event, such as a break-in or crash.Using LTE connectivity, the Owl Car Cam can instantly remotely send video of events to the Owl Cam app on your phone. Although the camera is always recording, it only retains and uploads video that is triggered by a safety event or through a voice-activated feature that allows you to capture and tag memorable moments, like a meteor streaking across the sky or an in-car sing-along during a road trip. You can also set the camera to rectie made 28 Premier League appearances last season as the Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League.The Republic of Ireland international, 26, has two years left on his contract after joining from Middlesbrough in January 2018.The former Covenord live continuously, if you wish. Videos are stored locally — up to 24 hours of footage — which is then recorded over when it hits the limit. With LTE service, you can connect to the camera to see a live view or play back recorded footage. LTE service is not required to use the camera, but you lose some functionality.The Owl Car Cam also has several interesting features to guard against break-ins. Since the camera is paired to your phone, it knows when an authorized driver is approaching your car. If someone attempts to break into it, two LED floodlights are activated and you’re immediately notified via the app. You’ll be able to watch a live-feed of inside the vehicle and use a built-in intercom to let the intruder know that you’ve contacted authorities.Because the camera is continuously capturing more to the story than a single-lens dashcam, it could help you prove your case during an insurance claim. And if you’re pulled over, Owl says the camera keeps “everyone on their best behavior and to make sure you have what you need to tell your side of the story.”When developing the Owl Car Cam, CEO Andy Hodge, who previously led development teams at Apple (iPod), Microsoft (HoloLens), and Dropcam, told Digital Trends that user privacy was a key concern. As such, the camera features an interesting privacy feature that restricts video access to the associated driver. For example, if you share a vehicle with your significant other, you will only be able to access video recorded when you’re behind the wheel.As for specs, the device uses two 4-megapixel, 120-degree cameras, one on either side — a 1440p camera on the front (outside), and a lower-resolution 720p camera on the back (inside). The idea here is that it’s more important to get a higher quality image of what happens outside the car. However, resolution dumbs down to 480p when you’re in 24-hour live-recording mode. Video frame rate is 30 frames per second, but it uses the HEVC codec; newer iPhones running the latest version of iOS will support this codec, but you might have issues with playback on older phones or computers.The display is a small 2.4-inch, touch-capable LCD. In addition to various sensors to detect movement, the Owl Car Cam has GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, as well as the aforementioned LTE radio. The device is lightweight and fits in your palm. It has a mono speaker, but it captures audio in stereo. The whole thingcontent_img runs on a 2.4GHz, 8-core processor with 3GB of onboard memory.Limited compatibilityThere are some limitations to the Owl Car Cam. You’ll need to make sure your vehicle has an OBD port under the steering column, since this port is useChelsea have agreed a loan extension for Nathan with Atletico Mineiro.The loan has been extended for another six months, according to UOL.The 23-year-old’s original loan expired on June 30.Nathan has also spent time on loan at Vitesse and Belenenses.d to power the device. If your car was manufactured after 1996, you’ll likely be in the clear.More limiting, however, is the Owl Car Cam’s compatibility with smartphones. Currently the camera only works with running iOS 11 or higher. When we talked with Hodge earlier this month, he mentioned that the company hopes to have an available in the future, but did not provide an estimate for its release.First impressionsWe had an opportunity to see the Owl Car Cam in action earlier this month and were impressed. We spent about an hour with the camera on a busy New York City street and were able to witness it automatically capture several different events. Both the camera and app worked perfectly and the video quality was excellent. In many ways it’s similar to a camera you would use to monitor your home.While the Owl Car Cam is primarily meant to act as a security device, or evidence to prove you’re not at fault during an accident or traffic violation, we like the social sharing abilities. The Owl Car Cam allows you to capture and tag any short event in the vehicle with your voice; this event is then transferred to the Owl Cam app where you can easily share it on any social media platform. There is a fun aspect to this camera: With its inside and outside recording, you can not only capture the outdoor scenery during a drive, but also the reaction from the people inside the car. We think the Owl Car Cam could benefit drivers for car-hailing services like Uber and Lyft.However, since the camera doesn’t record what happens behind the car, you can’t capture situations like a fender bender caused by a car hitting yours from behind, whether you’re on the road or parked. With so many accidents occurring at the rear, obviously, a dashcam like this is limited in capturing those events.Pricing and availabilityCurrently you can only purchase the Owl Car Cam on the . During our interview with Hodge, he mentioned the company would like to offer the product in major retailers later in the year. The Owl Car Cam currently sells for $349, bundled with a year of LTE service and video hosting. The company plans to sell the camera later in the year as a standalone device for $299; monthly service will be available for $10. The LTE service includes 60 minutes of live view or 60 video alerts. Owl has not said what would happen if you go over the limit — whether it just stops recording, records over older footage, or charge a fee for extra storage — but this could be another limiting issue for some users.

A battery-powered Audi Q3 could help democratize premium EVs

A battery-powered version of the next-generation Q3 crossover could be part of Audi’s electric vehicle offensive, according to a recent report. The model would compete in a segment that’s expected to grow significantly in the coming years, and insiders suggest it would be relatively cost-efficient to design.The next Q3 will shift to the Volkswagen Group’s modular MQB platform when it’s introduced either late next year or in early 2018. The new architecture will allow it to shed weight while making it compatible with the group’s latest powertrain components. British magazine .If the rumors are accurate, the first electric Q3 will use a compact electric motor that receives electricity from a 35.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack mounted under the rear seats. It will be faster than the e-Golf — which hits 60 mph from a stop in 9.6 seconds — and it will be capable of driving for over 124 miles on a single charge. An 80-percent charge will be available in less than an hour thanks to a standard quick charger.Like the e-Golf, the Q3 e-tron will be markedly more expensive than its gasoline-burning counterpart.
