Please bear with us as we upgrade and evolve beyond our earliest expectations and begin dropping our 2015 videos later down the line. What you see in the interim is an opportunity for experimental video output, and this post will wrap up today’s substantial news that caught my attention.

Patriots Win The Super Bowl

– Madden 15 by EA Games Makes Bold Prediction:

Electronic Arts in association with EA Sports released a new statement today to the press saying that the New England Patriots have won the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks in a video game simulation traditionally done by EA Sports as a sort of litmus test for the game engine’s accuracy to real sporting variables. Only time will tell if this rings true in real life.

Here’s an excerpt from the Official Press Release with more information:

“The prediction sees New England’s offense overcoming the Seahawks’ defense to pull out a 28-24 victory. Tom Brady was named MVP of the game thanks to his 335 yard, 4-touchdown performance, his third such honor.

The Madden NFL 15 Super Bowl Prediction is created by simulating the Super Bowl Matchup with updated rosters on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the official game console of the NFL. Fans can get more exclusive EA SPORTS content from Super Bowl week by following Madden NFLon Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat (easports) and using the hashtag #UltimateSB.”

PlayStation TV (AKA Vita TV) Discounted to $60

The PlayStation TV, PSTV, VitaTV, or whatever you want to call Sony’s micro-console / streaming device capable of providing PS Now, PS One Classic, PS Vita, and in-home streamed PS4 content (console required), all under the guise of also being another “Netflix machine” for consumers to gobble up has now gone on discount. Best Buy offered the sale first, both online and in-store for a device that debuted at $99 and steeply fell to $79 during the holiday season.

Now we see the device dropped to just $59 to which users have responded by spreading the news. It remains to be seen how many will actually buy though. Amazon has matched this price, now listing the PlayStation TV for $59.99 as well. The bundle which comes with a controller is now available for $99.00 even.

As Sony struggles to generate interest in the Vita library, many own Vita handhelds and are extremely pleased with their gaming experiences on the device. PSTV getting into more homes is a good sign that if Sony would have offered a more desirable price from the jump, such as Nintendo is attempting to do with the Nintendo New 3DS XL, then more people would have bit. We can probably expect to see a Vita price drop soon after this recent happening comes to pass.

Virtual Reality Gaming PC Architecture is Here

SLI 3.0 is coming out and it’s called VR SLI because it’s for VR Gear such as Oculus Rift. Instead of using multiple GPUs to render a single image, each graphics card renders for a separate eye. Beyond that, if the user has a Quad VR SLI set up then a sick immerse experience is guaranteed.

The GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 themselves even already  include revolutionary new technologies that make Maxwell GPUs the best choice for smooth, responsive, nausea-free Virtual Reality Gaming Experiences according to NVIDA.

Last Day For FREE GTA Game w/ GTA V PC Pre-Order

Pre-Order GTA V on Steam for Windows PC and you’ll get GTA San Andreas for free. This will run you $59.99 but you’ll have access day one to the game everybody’s been waiting for on Steam. Modding communities are already in place to rock the tarnish off of this game’s excessively big open world engine and hopefully GTA Online will be able to really flourish with the great online community of PC Gaming.

Starbound Gets Huge Update

If you’ve never heard of Starbound for PC, it’s a crazy good indie title that reminds most people of Terraria except with space exploration, many different planets, resource management, and more. Today they’ve announced access is available as cheap as $11.24 for a limited time as a huge update has hit the game with new quests, items, ships, monsters, a new playable race, new missions, and more. We’ve been working on a Preview for this title as its passed through countless Beta tests, server wipes, and that Preview is still forthcoming – but if you have a spare twelve dollars in your lint pocket and need to escape to another reality truly based on interesting 2D Gameplay then Check It Out HERE On Steam.
