One of the more anticipated Virtual Reality headsets heading our way is the HTC Vive. Following the example that Oculus Rift has done, HTC has announced when pre-orders will be going live, but haven’t announced what the price will be for said pre-orders.
If Monday is Day 0, with badge pick-up and CES Unveiled, then Tuesday was Day 1, otherwise known as Press Day. This is where we run around trying to get to all the press conferences we can to check out the new products companies are pushing out this year or working on for a general future release.
Sony’s press conference this year at CES 2016 is probably going to focus a lot on the company’s upcoming Virtual Reality headset, the Playstation VR. As for mobile related goodness, there is a possibility we could see a new Android device announced. I’m personally going to say that instead of a new Android device, we will probably hear more about additional second screen technology being developed for Sony’s Android devices.
One of the harder press conferences to get into in person at CES is the Samsung one. There’s always a ridiculous line that you have to wait in, sometimes for over an hour, just to make sure you get a seat. While that is what we have to do, even with our invite, you can chill at home or work and watch it right here live.
Each year at CES we get to sit down with our friends at Mad Catz to check out their newest offerings for the mobile gaming world. Last year it was the L.Y.N.X series of controllers, which are rather cool indeed. This year they will have those available as well as some new mobile goodies in the form of controllers specifically designed for Samsung smartphones and tablets.
This year Nvidia is holding their press conference tonight at 6PM PST, and you can watch it live in numerous places including right here. Last year’s press conference and overall show for Nvidia focused a lot on the automotive industry and Nvidia products for it. So what’s in store for this year?
LG has debuted two new Android smartphones at CES this morning in a new series of devices dubbed the ‘K Series’. The company states that these new smartphones will feature many of the features their premium devices come with, but at a lower, more affordable price than their top tier phones. The first two devices in this new series are the K10 and the K7, both of which will be shown off during CES 2016.
With Christmas and New Years over for 2015, and being a few days into a fresh new year, this can only mean one thing and that is its time for CES 2016. Like always we will be there, checking out all the latest and greatest in regards to Android, whether it be a bunch of new devices, new peripherals, or whatever else you can think of. There’s always something good for Android gamers at CES.
Vuzix has announced today that their iWear VR headset has won eight different International CES 2016 Innovation awards including two “Best Of” awards, one for gaming and one for Virtual Reality. With all the news lately revolving around other headsets like the Gear VR and Oculus Rift, it is always interesting to see other headsets out there holding their own.
One thing CES is usually good for is getting a sneak peek or two and unreleased games that will soon be coming to Android. At Qualcomm’s booth they had plenty of games being shown on their development tablets to showcase their new Snapdragon 810 and Adreno 430 chipset team. However all of them were games already released except for one that happened to show its demo reel right before we left. The game we are talking about is Gates of Osiris by Fenix Fire.
