</div> </div> <p>Rockstar has revealed that the remastered edition of Grand Theft Auto 5 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will allow players to swap to a first-person view, providing a more personal shooting/fighting/crashing experience.</p> <p>Rockstar&#39;s animation director Rob Nelson tells IGN that a host of new changes have been implemented to accommodate the new perspective, including an optional first-person cover system, more traditional FPS controls and thousands of new animations.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div

Bale (<em>The Dark Knight</em> trilogy) would play iconic Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in Sony&rsquo;s upcoming biopic (not to be confused with the wretched Ashton Kutcher one).

A project this high in profile (Danny Boyle is set to direct) seems likely to still be made, but it&rsquo;s already been through at least a couple of planned leads, including Leonardo DiCaprio before he also dropped out.

angles, among other perceived advantages. However, the market shrunk significantly when Panasonic pulled out last year, and now Samsung has announced its own plans to leave the plasma party.</p> <p>Samsung will cease producing plasma panels by 30 November this year, &ldquo;due to changes in market demands,&rdquo; according to a statement. The company hadn&rsquo;t released any new plasma TV models in 2014, and last year&rsquo;s entries&mdash;like the PS51F5500&mdash;look to be the last to hail from the Korean manufacturer. Like its competitors, Samsung plans to pursue more 4K televisions, along with curved displays.</p> <p>LG remains the lone major holdout, and CNET cites a report from <a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/yonhap-news-agency/140701/samsung-sdi-discontinue-plasma-display-production-amid-low-d">Yonhap News Agency</a> yesterday claiming that the company is also moving towards ceasing plasma screen production, having already converted one production line to making solar batteries instead.

The FTC wants Amazon to do the same, but the online mega-retailer isn&rsquo;t having any of it.</p> <p>Amazon believes it is doing enough to prevent children from making unintended in-app purchases&mdash;and/or is responding well enough to complaints to avoid additional regulation&mdash;and will not accept similar settlement terms as Apple. In a letter to the FTC dated on 1 July, Amazon lawyer Andrew DeVore says that &ldquo;leaves us no choice but to defend our approach in court.&rdquo;</p> <p>Of course, Amazon is only weeks out from releasing the Fire Phone, so perhaps the company isn&rsquo;t willing to admit wrongdoing or oversight to diminish that launch. A court battle would cost significant time and money, but surely Amazon can afford both to put this one off into the distance.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.theverge.com/2014/7/2/5864737/amazon-refuses-to-settle-with-ftc-in-app-purchases">The Verge</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/amazon-kindle-phone/review">Amazon Fire Phone preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Amazon Fire Phone" alt="Amazon Fire Phone" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/firephone-opener.jpg?1404465574" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Dungeon Keeper’s “free” advertising ruled misleading </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>When Electronic Arts tried to reboot the classic Dungeon Keeper as a mobile game earlier this year, the publisher ran into many unhappy players who found the different-feeling game to be severely limited by its freemium model.

Carbon had a hand in everything from the original Kinect sensor to the Xbox 360 controller, along with various computer peripherals.</p> <p>The firm has been working on various projects with Oculus for the better part of a year now, so Oculus must have really liked what it was seeing. Perhaps Carbon will be tasked with developing an official Oculus Rift controller&mdash;particularly needed since most developer demos given as of now are using Xbox or PlayStation controllers anyway.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.oculusvr.com/blog/oculus-agrees-to-acquire-carbon-design-team/">Oculus VR</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/oculus/oculus-founder-tells-stuff-were-going-sell-rift-cost-price/news">Oculus VR founder tells Stuff: We&rsquo;re going to sell Rift at cost price</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Xbox 360 controller" alt="Xbox 360 controller" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/xbox360-controller.jpg?1403773346" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> See Grand Theft Auto V running in first-person via mod </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>For all the work that Rockstar Games puts into its open world settings for the Grand Theft Auto series, it&rsquo;s a shame that we can&rsquo;t view the action from the perspective of the characters.

The Stratus XL looks incredibly similar to the Xbox One controller, but assuming it functions as well as its predecessor (without its cramping issues), this could be the best iPad and iPhone controller to date.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.steelseries.com">SteelSeries</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/steelseries/ces-2014/steelseries-outs-ios-games-controller-help-rack-those-high-scores/news">SteelSeries outs iOS games controller to help rack up those high scores</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="675" title="SteelSeries Sentry" alt="SteelSeries Sentry" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/steelseries-sentry.jpg?1402451177" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/facebook/fully-charged-grand-theft-auto-5-ps4-xb1-and-pc-facebook-s-accidental-slingshot-launch-and-#comments Console games Facebook Grand Theft Auto 5 iOS games Steelseries Tue, 10 Jun 2014 06:30:00 +0000 Andrew Hayward 1438847 at http://www.stuff.tv Fully Charged: Bigger iPhone 6 screen “is happening”, GTA 5 all but confirmed for PC, and PS Plus getting best games yet http://www.stuff.tv/grand-theft-auto-5/fully-charged-bigger-iphone-6-screen-happening-gta-5-all-confirmed-pc-and-ps-plus <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Get your RDA of gadget news right here with our daily morning round-up </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="910" height="683" title="Bigger iPhone 6 screen “is happening”" alt="Bigger iPhone 6 screen “is happening”" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/iphone-6-render_0.jpg?1390526680" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> iPhone 6 getting 4.8in screen, says analyst </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Now, we&rsquo;re too smart to trust anything financial analysts have to say about future Apple devices (if they were right, we&rsquo;d all be watching Apple-branded TVs in our living rooms right this second), but it&rsquo;s our duty to report this claim from the Cowen Group&rsquo;s Timothy Arcuri.

Thankfully there are ways to avoid its cold, calculating gaze (beyond the obvious-yet-drastic “wear a mask at all times” or “delete your Facebook profile”), such as Simone C. Niquille’s REALFACE Glamoflage t-shirts.</p> <p>As part of her thesis, the graphic design graduate student created a series of shirts covered in distorted celebrity faces. While they’re not guaranteed to stop the wearer’s fizzog being spotted by facial recognition algorithms, the shirts have a good chance of confusing the systems. Niquille, who sells the shirts for around £40 apiece, says they work more effectively if they fit the wearer tightly.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://realface.s-c-n.biz/">Realface</a> via <a href="http://www.wired.com/design/2013/10/thwart-facebooks-creepy-auto-tagging-with-these-bizarre-t-shirts/">Wired</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung Galaxy J leaked </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Samsung, it seems, is poised to launch yet another Galaxy device. According to photos obtained by blog RBMen, the Samsung Galaxy J will be launched soon on Japan’s NTT DoCoMo network. The J looks set to be a more powerful version of the Galaxy S4, equipped with 3GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 800 processor (just like you’d find in the larger Galaxy Note 3). There’s no indication, as yet, that the J will be launching outside of Japan, but we’ll keep an eye out for more info.

You might have heard of potatoes being used as batteries in school science labs – but how about a nice glass of Merlot being used to run a computer? That was exactly the case at the Intel developer forum last week, when Chipzilla anthropologist Dr Genevieve Bell demonstrated a CPU running off a glass of red wine. The beverage’s acetic acid reacts with two electrodes to produce a tiny amount of electricity – tiny, but enough for a low-power processor. In a few year’s time, it may be possible to run actual computers off this kind of improvised battery.

It’s estimated that around 100,000 people have downloaded the gun design for printing already (the US government has since forced Wilson to remove the blueprints), but if you want to see the original parts for yourself, get thee to the V&amp;A.
