The Last Of Us Movie Officially Announced, Sam Raimi To Produce

San Diego Comic-Con is known for bringing a lot of popular mediums together into one, with gaming making a bigger presence at the event in recent years. With The Last of Us Remastered set to release next week, a final trailer was shown for the game, which was followed by a major bombshell of the official announcement of a movie for The Last of Us, complete with the reveal of the producer and the lead target they want to play Ellie.

Sam Raimi, best known for his work on The Evil Dead series and first Spider-Man trilogy is attached as the producer of the project, which seems like a great fit. Granted his movies have always had an element of camp that likely will not be seen here. In addition, it was revealed who their lead target to play Ellie is in the movie, Maisie Williams. Williams is best known for playing the sassy and strong-willed Arya on Game of Thrones. Sounds like about the same kind of character right?

No information was given on who they were targeting for Joel, but Bruce Campbell was involved with the panel as well, hinting at a possible cameo or another role besides Joel. NeoGAF had some fantastic suggestions for the role of Joel, including Hugh Jackman and Josh Brolin. Who would you like in that role if given the choice?

During the Last of Us panel, Neil Druckmann mentioned the use of the game’s voice actors in the movie in some capacity.

“In an ideal world, Ashley Johnson would be 14. But there’s some way to get those actors into the film.”
It would be quite cool to see some cameos in the movie by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, but hopefully they are done well. It appears along with Assassin’s Creed, we are finally getting respectable directors and casts associated with video game movies, so hopefully this is a good sign for the quality of them once they eventually release.

First Look: Spigen Thin Fit / A for iPhone 6 (4.7”)

How confident is Spigen in the size, shape, and dimensions of Apple’s as-yet-unannounced iPhone 6 / iPhone Air? Enough to debut Thin Fit and Thin Fit A ($15), new form-fitting shells made to protect the sides and backs of Apple’s next-generation 4.7”-screened iPhone. The basic Thin Fit versions come in clear and opaque versions, including one non-slip black version, slightly pearlescent white, and light blue. Each has holes for the side-mounted controls and rear camera, plus complete coverage gaps for the iPhone’s top, bottom, and front. Thin Fit A adds a circular cut-out for the Apple logo, albeit with clear protection to keep the logo from being scratched; it comes in flat black and gunmetal versions. As the photos show, each case’s rounded sides, noticeably greater height, and slightly larger width suggest that the next iPhone’s 4.7” screen will be markedly larger than the 4” iPhone 5/5c/5s displays. They’ll be available for purchase in late September.

New PS4 special editions announced

The differences between the standard PlayStation 4 and a “The Last of Us Special Edition” console are few. You’ll get a stand to hold the device up sideways better, you’ll get a black controller (just like the standard set), and you’ll get The Last of Us Remastered in the box.

The Destiny PlayStation 4 special edition brings a slightly different situation to bare. Here you’ll get the Destiny game and a snow white controller. The PS4 Destiny console also has a large DESTINY branding on the side in light gray, the same color as the PlayStation logo.

Nexus 8 tablet prototype spotted entering India

This information comes from an Indian website that tracks imports to the country, but unfortunately the Nexus 8 listing doesn’t give us an idea about which company is making it.

That’s because the prototypes come from the United States, so probably from Google itself and not from the device maker’s country. And the manufacturer’s name doesn’t accompany the Nexus 8 branding in the description of the listing, which is something that rarely happens.

The estimated price as stated here is 329 GBP (32,968 INR).

Google Unveils Android L With New ‘Material Design’, Android Auto, Android TV

Google today unveiled Android L, its upcoming mobile operating system that brings more than 5,000 new APIs and a new design approach called ‘Material Design’.

Check out the video for more details…

The company also announced improvements to Android and Chrome that make it easier to move between devices.

Android Wear and Android Auto

Android Wear extends Android and its ecosystem of apps to your wrist. You get the information you need, quickly at a glance—just like you’re used to doing with your watch. Just say “Ok Google” to ask questions or to get stuff done. Get alerted when it’s time to leave for dinner. Call a cab to take you there. See the traffic on the way. Text a friend once you’re seated. It’s all right there, on your wrist, easy to see, right when you want it. Google announced that two Android wearables, the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live, are available to order today on Google Play, and the Moto 360 from Motorola will be available in the coming months.

Android Auto was showed to developers today. Just connect your Android phone to a car with Android Auto, and you’ll have what you need at your fingertips such as turn-by-turn navigation from Google Maps, your curated playlists and radio stations through Play Music, simple-to-use voice search, and reminders from Google Now. This is accessible through your car’s controls, and more importantly, is far safer than fumbling around with your phone. You’ll start to see Android Auto in cars later this year.

Chromecast and Android TV

The Chromecast dongle is getting an update to make it even more powerful, and convenient to use, with new features like the ability to allow others to cast to your TV without needing to be on the same WiFi network, a customizable homescreen with personal photos or beautiful art, and casting exactly what is on your Android phone or tablet screen directly to the TV.

In addition to Chromecast, Android TV was announced today. Android TV brings Android apps and games to your living room. It’s baked directly into your TV-watching experience, through a set-top box or as part of your TV. You can use voice search to find a live TV show, a good flick from Google Play, or a music video on YouTube. You can also play Android games reimagined for TV and gamepads are supported. Android TV, like Chromecast, supports Google Cast technology. It will ship with products from various consumer electronics companies later this year.

Android One

Google is working with partners on a comprehensive solution—which includes hardware reference platforms—to address the mobile computing needs of those in emerging markets. Android One will provide smartphones that are high quality, affordable and come with reasonable data plans. The company’s partners will launch an initial range of sub-$100 Android One smartphones starting in India this Fall, with more countries to follow.
