E3 2016 Press Conference Streams: What, When, And Where To Watch

E3 isn’t nearly as central to video games as it once was, given how many splendid games are now released without big publishers or marketing budgets, but it’s still a lark innit? All those fancy video games, all in one place, all on stage singing and dancing, all in one week so dense with announcements that you’ll miss most and only discover weeks later that they even happened? Very colourful. Lots of exciting loud noises too.

So! When are the big press conferences to watch? I’ll tell you.

PlayStation 4 Remote Play Comes To PC Today

If you have a PlayStation 4, from today you can use the Remote Play feature to stream games from it to a PC. The promised support arrives with today’s system software update 3.50, and Sony have released a Remote Play application for Windows and Mac to match.

As was made abundantly clear last month, the modern age has failed us by way of flying DeLoreans, hoverboards, and self-drying, self-fitting jackets. The wonder of playing games remotely, on the other hand, is very much a reality. The Steam Link plays PC games on TVs, Xbox One games can be mirrored on Windows 10, and upcoming official PlayStation 4 Remote Play support will let folks play on their PS4 through Windows and Mac computers.

Week in Tech: Sony Vaio Tap 11, Will It Game?

As I wandered the debris-strewn wasteland of discarded smartphones that is the aftermath of the perfect storm of disposable consumerism at CES in Vegas earlier this month, my plan had been to regale you all with a twisting tale of ultra mobile technology and gaming. To talk about the iPhone and how its performance has ballooned by 40 times since introduction in 2007. And what it all means for the PC. I wrote it up and even managed to crowbar in an anecdote about the afternoon I spent lounging in the sun at the Colombo Swimming Club chatting to Arthur C. Clarke without once mentioning 2001 (true story and all that). But then I thought sod that whimsy, I’ll save it for another day. I’ve got an Intel Haswell-powered Sony Vaio Tap 11 at the moment. Will it game? Read the rest of this entry »
