When it comes to the likes of gaming monitors, you know for sure that folks like AOC has got your back – after all, it is not as though they do not have gaming monitors that catered to your high end whims and fancies in the past, right? This time around, here we are with word that their latest range of AOC FreeSync gaming monitors are arriving in the US – which means it might just be time to upgrade – if you would want to pick it up, of course.
The two models that have been made available to the masses would be the 24” and 27” FreeSync gaming monitors (otherwise known as G2460PF and G2770PF, respectively) which will do away with tearing, stuttering and input lag. In other words, both of the monitors will be able to enable gamers to enjoy clear, detailed imagery with Full HD resolution – not to mention sharper action sequences thanks to an ultra-fast 1ms response time and impressive 144Hz refresh rate. These will work in tandem to get rid of blurring and ghosting, and in competitive games that are played at a level where the tightest of margins separate the winner and the loser, this could eventually end up being the difference between victory and defeat.
Good thing AOC has decided that both of the G2460PF and G2770PF gaming monitors will not prove to be a burden to the gaming community where its pricing is concerned – they can be picked up for $269 and $359, respectively. Serious gamers will find the displays capable of delivering an extra smooth playing experience with FreeSync that seamlessly synchronizes the monitor and GPU refresh rates. Your eyeballs will be treated to a 144Hz frame rate, which is double the frame rate of other monitors, and it shows off your enemy’s movement in ultra-smooth motion. With a pixel response time of 1 ms, it translates to speed sans the smear for an enhanced gaming experience.
Other shared hardware specifications include four-way adjustable stands (tilt, height, swivel, and orientation), VESA mounting provisions and a Kensington Security Lock, in addition to a built-in active and passive USB 2.0 hub that delivers easy-access ports for convenient connection of USB devices. It is also multimedia-ready with HDMI Input so that gamers can hook up to connect a secondary device on their monitor with up to 60 Hz.

Gamers can be a very spoiled lot, which is why they would demand for nothing but the very best where hardware is concerned. After all, when the last round is played and you still lose despite giving your all and having nothing but the best in class peripherals, that is when you heave a sigh of relief and claim that you have a really throbbing migraine – which meant you would have been undefeated if you were on a roll. Typical gamer ego talking here, but if you so happen to be in the market for a gaming keyboard that has pedigree, then the Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum TKL Mechanical Gaming Keyboard does sound as though it is worth checking out.
This ultra-light keyboard will boast of Logitech’s exclusive Romer-G mechanical switches, where it comes with 25 percent faster actuation compared to standard mechanical keyboards. The Romer-G mechanical switches will also come with an actuation point of 1.5 mm, allowing them to have a distinct advantage in receiving commands more quickly, so that you end up with an edge in competitive games where every single millisecond matters. There will also be improved durability at 70 million keystrokes, which is up to 40% longer compared to the rest on the market, allowing you to play with confidence.
Since it comes with a collection of vital keys where gaming is concerned, the Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum is easy to tote around, be it to LAN events or a friend’s house, as it fits into smaller gaming spaces without missing a beat. There will be no number pad or macro keys to get in the way, and the additional space will let you make wide motions with your mouse. Apart from that, its compact design ensures that your hands will come closer together for improved comfort.
The Logitech G410 Atlas Spectrum is tipped to arrive Stateside as well as across the pond from early this month, where it will feature a recommended retail price of $129.99 and €149, depending on which side of the Atlantic you live on.

It was in the middle of this year when we brought you word that MSI Computer Corp. has refreshed their range of notebooks with new Intel processors underneath the hood, and we are pleased as punch that this particular move or train of thought did not stop there and then, but in fact, it has continued. This time around, MSI has announced that its latest notebooks will come armed with Intel’s 6th Generation Core i7 processors, otherwise known as Skylake.
For starters, the brand new MSI GT72 Dominator Pro will be able to deliver extreme desktop gaming performance with unlocked and overclocked 6th Gen Intel Core i7 K processors that are paired with the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 desktop graphics.

Gamers can be a very spoiled bunch. After all, they tend to have this particularly irritating blind spot, which would involve blaming everything and everyone else around them whenever they have an off day in terms of performance as opposed to seeing where their own abilities, or rather, the lack of it, has let them down. Hence, you see hard core gamers investing plenty of time as well as hard earned cash where hardware is concerned, often seeking out the latest and greatest device to give them a perceived edge in the fierce competition with the others. Gaming mice happen to be a hardware segment that is well visited, and this time around, we have the Mad Catz R.A.T. PROs Tournament Grade Gaming Mouse that has just been announced.
The Mad Catz R.A.T. PROs happens to be a Windows 10 compatible gaming mouse that will clearly target competitive gamers, where it will boast of a lightweight profile and come with a slew of customization options along the way. You should be able to see it enter tournament play in due time if more and more gamers were to adopt it as their gaming device of choice, and it is tipped to ship in time for the holiday season – which is a good thing, of course. In fact, the R.A.T. PROs boasts of a striking visual design that takes its inspiration from the critically acclaimed R.A.T. PROX. Apart from that, tournament level gamers happen to have had their fair share of input into the creation of the R.A.T. PROs, where key features and components essential for competitive play have been thrown into the mix.
For starters, you get a high-performance 5000 DPI Pixart PMW3310 infrared optical sensor that powers this lightweight mouse, where it tips the scales at a mere 77 grams, allowing it to glide effortlessly atop PTFE feet. Not only that, other customizable features will include on-board memory with up to three custom profiles, allowing it to be the ideal mouse for eSports tournaments. There is also Mad Catz’ free auto-profile software which will automatically switch to the gamers’ preferred profile upon detection of their chosen game, now how about that for being smart? Any takers?
Back in April last year, we were introduced to the Amazon Fire TV, which did not really take off in a big way which Amazon would have liked, but it would be folly to say that it was a complete disaster, either. So, what is it about the Amazon Fire TV that requires a second look? The folks over at Amazon apparently thought so, which was why they decided to work on the Amazon Fire TV Gaming Edition. The Amazon Fire TV Gaming Edition is definitely something new, as it merges the spanking new Amazon Fire TV, in addition to that of a new game controller, a 32GB microSD memory card, and a pair included games – namely Shovel Knight and Disney’s Ducktales, and all of that will be going for $139.99 a pop.
It is nice to see that the new Amazon Fire TV Game Controller will boast of an all-new ergonomic design, a headphone jack, and voice search, where you will be able to take advantage of it as part of the Gaming Edition, or opt to take it as an accessory for Fire TV which can be added on later. Just how much better is the new Fire TV compared to its predecessor? Well, Amazon claims that it boasts of 75% additional processing power, double the GPU performance, in addition to a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes of up to 128GB, delivering incredible value and powerful performance for gamers.
In addition, the Amazon Fire TV will come with more games than any other streaming media player in the market, where some of the new and popular games will include Minecraft Story Mode, Pac Man 256, Disney’s Ducktales, and Shovel Knight.
As for the Amazon Fire TV Game Controller, it will run on a set of AA batteries, offering up to 90 hours of performance before a replacement is required – assuming you do not hook up a pair of headphones to it, of course, as doing so would result in a lower battery life but a more intimate gaming experience. Any takers for the new Amazon Fire TV Gaming Edition?
Some of us do not mind living out ordinary lives, where there is not much value placed on the flashy and expensive items. After all, relationships and friendships have a higher value in such eyes, as opposed to having premium products all the time. However, when it comes to a topic like gaming, dedicated gamers will tell you how they love having nothing but the very best, and the Xbox One Elite Bundle steps right up to the plate in order to fulfill such lofty expectations. After all, why pick up a regular Xbox One when you can settle for the Xbox One Elite Bundle, right?
With the Xbox One Elite Bundle, you will be able to play like a pro, where storage for your games – Xbox 360 titles included, will be doubled, thanks to the 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive. Of course, you will also be able to get to the action 20% faster from energy-save mode, in order for you to spend more time gaming rather than waiting.
Apart from that, your hands will definitely appreciate the kind of pro-level precision in which the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller sports, as it boasts of an arsenal of swappable components, Hair Trigger Locks, and limitless customization, all within the confines of an easy-to-use app. There is a wide range of thumbsticks, D-pads, and paddles to choose from for a tailored feel that provides game-changing accuracy and speed. The asking price of $499 Xbox One Elite Bundle certainly does not put it beyond the reach of many, and with the holiday season just looming up upon us, how about taking the necessary steps to secure one for yourself – or perhaps the whole family? Each purchase will also come with an Xbox Elite Wireless Controller carrying case, a 14-Day Xbox Live Gold Trial, a HDMI Cable and a power supply.
The rest is here:
Xbox One Elite Bundle lets you play like a pro
When it comes to tablets, most of the time we would think of tablets as being productive add-on devices to our notebook or desktop. As for gaming, sure, you will be able to enjoy a little bit of Angry Birds here and there, as well as some of the more engaging RPGs that are there, but to see a tablet as a serious gaming device? You’re kidding me, right? Acer wants to introduce a paradigm shift with what they deem to be the first dedicated gaming tablet in the world, the Acer Predator 8.
The Acer Predator 8 is no pushover when it comes to processing muscle, but rather, you can more or less call it a beast instead. After all, game play will come to life thanks to the Predator Quadio, which happens to be a combination of a quartet of front-facing speakers and virtual surround sound, whereas tactile feedback will be delivered through Predator TacSense. I suppose this goes to show just how important having great audio to accompany fantastic visuals are.
As for your eyeballs, they will not be left out, but rather, treated to exceptionally realistic visuals thanks to the 8” Full HD display (1920 x 1200) that boasts of Predator ColorBlast technology. As for processing muscle, you can rely on the Intel Atom x7 processor that runs underneath the hood, while Android 5.1 Lollipop remains as the mobile operating system of choice, accompanied by 2
We want to be as close to our gaming worlds as possible, so it makes sense that we’re striving to make exceedingly real virtual reality experiences. We’ve already got things like the Occulus, Omni, wireless controllers that act as weapons and much more. However, the more we put on, the harder it is to make the experience seem real. There have been innovations to expand your visual field in your living room, but they only do so much as you’re not really moving with the environment.
If you like geeky accessories that are also functional, then the Talon from Titanium Falcon will be a hot new item to keep your eye on. We’ve seen a gaming ring before, but as it is with all tech items, the newest one is generally trying to outdo the older version of itself. This is less than 3.8mm thick and won’t cost more than $100, but its aim is to be as multi-platform as possible.
Rather than forcing you to get an expensive piece of hardware that you don’t already have, this will work with any smart device. This means your phone, tablet, smart TV, smart watch, PC, Mac, or VR headset. Your hand gestures will control aspects of games or applications, making it a more seamless experience. It uses Bluetooth low energy, a 32-bite CPU, two action buttons, 9-axis motion control sensor, a gyroscope, and a compass. While we won’t know precisely how useful this is until it has hit the shelves as it is going to be a crowdfunding campaign first, it looks pretty promising at the moment.

I am quite sure that many of us, even if we are not Star Wars fans, would know that Star Wars Episode VII is set to this the silver screens at the end of this year right before Christmas, and by all indicators and means, it will be a massive box office hit – the question is, how much will it gross at the end of the day, and where will it rank on 2015’s top 10 highest grossing movies list? With that, you can be sure that Star Wars fans, too, might be on the lookout for a new PS4 – either they do not yet own one, or feel that it is time for a fresh change of air. Hence, it is rather interesting to note that there will be not one, but two Star Wars bundles that will be made available this coming November 17th, and pre-orders for both bundles are set to kick off soon.
First and foremost, the Limited Edition Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Bundle will come with a custom 500GB limited edition PS4 system (CUH-1200 series) and DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller that has been specially inspired by Darth Vader himself. This fully customized PS4 will boast of an image of Darth Vader, as well as a repeated Star Wars logo across the top of the system. The Darth Vader edition DUALSHOCK 4 was inspired by Darth Vader’s chest panel and features the repeated Star Wars logo on its touchpad.
Those who pick up this particular bundle will also find the Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe Edition, in addition to a digital voucher to download a quartet of classic Star Wars titles, namely Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter and Star Wars Bounty Hunter. These four titles will be playable for the very first time on the PS4 platform, and to celebrate such an occasion, they will sport enhanced graphics and Trophy support.
That is not all though, and in order to celebrate the launch of Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, there will also be a Limited Edition Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars PS4 Bundle that is available exclusively at Wal-mart on November 17th, too. This package sports the Darth Vader-inspired 500GB PS4 system (CUH-1200 series) and DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller, accompanied by the Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars Edition PlayStation Exclusive Hardware Bundle Kit. Such a kit will include a physical copy of Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, the Disney Infinity Base, the Rise Against the Empire Play Set Pack (featuring Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa figures, as well the Rise Against the Empire Play Set piece), and the Boba Fett figure, exclusive to PlayStation through this holiday season. You will also find a similar digital voucher for the four classic Star Wars games mentioned earlier on. Looks like the Force is pretty strong this holiday season!
