If you?ve loved the Left 4 Dead series, then there?s a good chance that you?re itching for Left 4 Dead 3, hoping for not only stellar graphics but an equally, if not more, addictive gameplay. Well the good news is that Left 4 Dead 3 will happen, but as to when that will be is a complete mystery. This was confirmed by Valve?s Chet Faliszek in an interview with Eurogamer who quoted him as saying, ?A 3? You know, some time down the road [?] Like anything, I would say that to all of our games. So that’s not a promise of when or where.? In case it wasn?t obvious enough, it means that while Left 4 Dead 3 will be happening, it could be years before it will be officially announced. Faliszek also expressed interest in the possibility of a player-controlled ?AI Director? which is basically the AI system in which determines where and when zombies spawn. Granted no specifics were mentioned, but we guess the fact that Left 4 Dead 3 is in the cards should appease many gamers.By Ubergizmo.

Sony has teased us by announcing characters for their upcoming brawler, the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Prior to that, the only ?confirmation? of the full roster list was only available via the rumors but the good news is that the full list has been officially revealed. There will be a total of 20 characters that players will be able to choose from which hopefully will be varied enough to satisfy the majority of gamers. We?re pretty sure that some gamers might be bummed that their favorite character from their favorite game did not make the cut, and not to speculate, but who knows what the future holds, right? In any case the full list of characters is available after the break. So, who?s excited? (more…)By Ubergizmo.

With the release of the iPhone 5 and iOS 6, we?re sure that there are many iOS users out there who are itching to have their devices jailbroken. Unfortunately if that describes your current situation, you might be in for a wait. This was revealed by none other than pod2g during the JailbreakCon 2012 where he stated that there is no working untethered jailbreak available for iOS 6 yet. In case some of you guys came across a photo of a jailbroken iPhone 5 (pictured above), that is apparently what is known as a ?failbreak? and is actually a version available only to developers which means that it is by no means suitable for regular folks like you and me. No word on when an untethered jailbreak will be available for iOS 6 or the iPhone 5, although it has been suggested that we could be waiting for months, so until then for those who want a jailbroken iOS device, you will need to downgrade back to iOS 5.1.1.By Ubergizmo.

We?re sure that many of us have stood in front of an airport luggage conveyor belt after an extremely long flight, we?re tired, our body is sore and we just want to get into the cab and go home (or to a hotel). Sometimes we luck out and our baggage is among the first to start rolling out, but sometimes we?re not so lucky and we end up waiting for 15 minutes. Granted the waiting is not so much an issue but when you see how slow those conveyor belts move, well it?s akin to watching paint dry. The folks in Japan at the Daifuku company are hoping to change that with a new conveyor belt system that they claim has the ability to travel 600 meters per minute!
Not only is this proposed system faster than the ones employed at airports, but they also come with RFID tags which allows the system to scan the bags and decide where they should go. Each bag is placed upon a tray of its own with an RFID tag, which at the same time serves another purpose which is prevent bags from ending up on top of each other. This will hopefully put an end in situations where baggage comes out of the belt on top of each other, possibly damaging items within the bag at the same time. No word on when airports around the world plan on switching to Daifuku?s system, but hopefully it won?t be too long. In the meantime you can check out the system in action in the video above.By Ubergizmo.

While some might have more pure and noble reasons for jailbreaking an iOS device or rooting an Android one, it?s safe to assume that many people do it for the free apps. By jailbreaking/rooting your device, you will have to ability to downloaded pirated apps instead of having to pay for it, and that?s generally the perception people have when you tell them that you jailbroke or rooted your device, even though you might have just done it for customizability and still pay for apps. That being said, Cydia is an app store alternative for jailbroken iOS devices and it has been revealed that during JailbreakCon 2012, Jay ?saurik? Freeman, it seems that Cydia developers were paid a pretty impressive sum of $8 million in 2011.
Granted this pales in comparison to Apple?s iTunes App Store, it just goes to show that not all jailbreakers or rooters are pirates! For those unfamiliar, the Cydia store is an app store alternative to the official iTunes App Store. It provides jailbroken iOS users access to apps (free and paid) that might not necessarily meet Apple?s strict guidelines either due to content being inappropriate, or having features that can only be taken advantage of on a jailbroke device.By Ubergizmo.

The other day we reported that thanks to a leaked O2 brochure, the specs of the upcoming HTC One X+ was leaked. Well it looks like the folks at Pocket-Lint have managed to get their hands on what appears to photos of the device itself and based on what we?re looking at, well it seems that the rumors were right on the money when they said that the phone will greatly resemble the HTC One X, albeit with its specs tweaked slightly, although the logo of Beats Audio on the One X+ is different from older HTC phones.
As for its specs and in case you might have forgotten, the HTC One X+ is rumored to sport a 4.7? display, a 1.7GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra-3 processor under the hood with 1GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, an 8MP rear-facing camera, Beats Audio integration, free 25GB of cloud storage via Dropbox and will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board. Still no word on when it will be available but we?ll be keeping our eyes peeled nonetheless.By Ubergizmo.

Last week we reported that Texas Instruments was looking to leave the mobile sector, instead choosing to focus on other markets such as the automotive, industrial, enterprise just to name a few. Well the good news is that the report wasn?t entirely correct. As it turns out Texas Instruments isn?t leaving the mobile market. This was clarified to the folks at GSM Arena by a Texas Instruments media relations manager, who revealed that instead of leaving the market, the company will be expanding its reach. In fact the company also stated that they will be continuing the developing of its OMAP chipsets, some of which can be found on devices like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Amazon?s Kindle Fire tablet.
They are also working on the fifth generation of OMAP chipsets, the OMAP 5 which will be based on the Cortex-A15 cores. Texas Instruments expects that commercial devices powered by their OMAP 5 chipsets will be available in early 2013. In any case this is probably good news to users and developers and we will be looking forward to seeing which devices in 2013 will feature Texas Instruments? OMAP 5 chipset.By Ubergizmo.

While devices are released around the world, they aren?t always released stateside but given that we?re such gadget lovers, we can?t help but be curious as to what sort of toys our friends in other countries might be getting. Well it seems that such a device has popped up in none other than Pyongyang, the capital of North Area. It was spotted during a trade fair where approved electronics were put on display. Unfortunately the details of the device remains somewhat of a mystery, although the folks at Android Central are speculating that it sports a 10? display with what appears to be Android on board. However a box in the background revealed the word ?Samijyo?, which happens to be another North Korean tablet that was introduced in June earlier this year. However given that it?s Android and taking North Korea?s strict internet access into consideration, we?d have to guess it will be an extremely modified version of Android that will not feature any of Google?s core services. If you have any idea of what sort of specs this tablet could feature, let us know in the comments below!By Ubergizmo.

So we know that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be launched on the four major US carriers along with US Cellular, but we guess there are those out there who have been eagerly keeping track of the ?phablet? and well, you?re in luck as it seems that the different variations of the device have stopped by the FCC. Sprint?s and US Celluar?s versions of the handset were not spotted, but for those who were planning to get it on AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon?s network, model numbers SGH-i317, SGH-T889 and the SCH-i605 will be the ones you?ll want to keep an eye out for. The official launch for US will be taking place on the 24th of October in New York although availability still remains a mystery. We expect that availability will vary from carrier to carrier, hopefully not by much, but either way if the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is a device you?ve been eyeing, be sure to check back with us later for more updates.By Ubergizmo.

It wasn?t too long ago that the Samsung Galaxy Camera was officially announced, revealing Samsung?s plans for an Android-based camera. Given that it will be powered by Android, we expect that some of its features will require an internet connection of some kind, whether it via WiFi or 3G/4G networks. Well if you were wondering from which carrier you might be able to pick up the Galaxy Camera, thanks to an FCC filing it looks like AT&T will be the carrier you?ll want to visit. The FCC filing has revealed two devices ? the EK-GC100 and the EK-KC100, both of which feature HSPA-based 3G radios on the 850MHz and 1900MHz bands, which is basically the same bands used by AT&T and some Canadian carriers. There was no mention of 4G, although Samsung did state that there will be 3G and 4G versions, so perhaps we might see them pop up later. At this point in time it is unclear as to whether AT&T will be the only carrier offering the Galaxy Camera, but stay tuned for more updates! Until then, who?s planning on getting the Galaxy Camera, or are you perfectly happy with the camera on your Android-based device as it is?By Ubergizmo.
