Playstation Boss Sees 'limited Potential' For Handheld Gaming

PlayStation Boss Sees 'Limited Potential' For Handheld Gaming

Ever wonder what happened to Sony's PS Vita console? Back in 2015, it was reported that gamers probably shouldn't expect to see a successor anytime soon, and last year there were also rumors that the console could be discontinued in North America. If you're still holding out on the hope that Sony will have a new console soon, you'll be disappointed to learn that it really doesn't seem like it will happen.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Sony's PlayStation boss Andrew House has stated that he sees "limited global potential" when it comes to handheld gaming consoles, at least as far as this day and age are concerned where smartphones are more than capable of being powerful gaming devices.

Super Mario Run Gets A Temporary Price Cut And New Levels

Super Mario Run Gets A Temporary Price Cut And New Levels

If there was one main criticism that many gamers had when Super Mario Run was launched was its price tag. Sure, the game was free up to a certain extent, but gamers who wanted more content and features would have to fork out $10 for everything, which as far as mobile games are concerned is pricey.

However the good news is that if you've been holding out on purchasing the game, Nintendo has announced that from the 29th of September until the 12th of October, Super Mario Run will be discounted and have its price slashed by 50%, meaning that the game will only cost you $5 if you were to purchase it within that particular time period. After that we expect the price to go back to normal levels.

Panasonic To Start Mass Production Of Intelligent Electronic Rear-view Mirrors

Panasonic to Start Mass Production of Intelligent Electronic Rear-view Mirrors Jointly Developed with Ficosa - Fareastgizmos
Panasonic will start mass-production of electronic rear-view mirrors this month -the first product jointly developed with Ficosa International S.A. The electronic rear-view mirror integrating Ficosa’s mirror technology and Panasonic’s camera and liquid crystal display technologies have been adopted by Toyota as genuine parts. Using a wide-angle lens camera, the electronic rear-view mirror shows a wider rearward area at a longer distance (horizontal direction) behind the vehicle and improves visibility of hard-to-see areas diagonally behind the vehicle, compared to conventional rear-view mirrors.


By installing the camera inside on the rear window, the electronic rear-view mirror reduces rear blind spots. Unlike conventional rear-view mirrors, this rear-view mirror provides a rearward view, fed by the camera, unobstructed by rear-seat passengers or objects present in the vehicle.
The camera with high-sensitivity obtains clear images during nighttime driving or when driving through a tunnel. The camera switches to the nighttime mode in conjunction with the headlight switch and reduces headlight glare seen when using conventional rear-view mirrors.

Mitsubishi Electric Field Testing Worlds First Autonomous Driving System Using Clas

Mitsubishi Electric Field Testing World's First Autonomous Driving System Using CLAS from Quasi-Zenith Satellite System - FareastgizmosMitsubishi Electric announced today that it began field testing the world’s first autonomous driving technology on highways to use a centimeter-level augmentation service (CLAS) broadcast from the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) on September 19. CLAS is a positioning-augmentation service for high-precision positioning, distributed free of charge in Japan from the QZSS, which operates under the auspices of the Cabinet Office. CLAS is scheduled to begin operating in April 2018 and is currently in the final stages of verification. It is expected to be used for practical applications such as safe-driving assistance and automated driving.

CLAS improves precision by using positioning-augmentation data from a network of continuously operating reference stations (CORS) administrated by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan. The data is broadcast via the QZSS to high-precision positioning receivers installed in automobiles that can detect locations with centimeter-level accuracy. Driving tests will be conducted to verify the possibility of infrastructural driving, utilizing CLAS signals and high-precision 3D maps combined with Mitsubishi Electric’s intelligent driving technology, including sensing technologies such as millimeter-wave radar and cameras.
