Hi and welcome to a new weekly thread from myself and James (JSG). We're here to bring you the biggest news of the week in the world of gaming and technology, as well as offer information on upcoming releases and other useful information (all in the hope of breathing a bit of life into the gaming and technology aspect of The Lounge). happy.gif

Every Thursday evening we'll be alternating, bringing you bitesize chunks of what's making the headlines during that week, with links for further reading at your own leisure!

PS. There will be a banner made for future editions! laugh.gif


Sony Hack Saga To Be Made Into Movie

The team behind Emmy-winning Netflix documentary 'The Square' are gearing up to create a new film based on the Sony Pictures email hacking saga that hit Hollywood late last year. Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer's documentary focuses on cyber attacks and aggression, demonstrating alternative theories to who was responsible for one of the biggest hacks in corporate history. This has long been associated with North Korea, with the country's outrage over the James Franco/Seth Rogen film 'The Interview' seen as the main reason behind the hack.

Microsoft Windows 10 Free Upgrade

Anyone who has a Windows PC or laptop will have noticed a shiny new icon in their system tray over the last few days. For anyone who is running Windows 7 or newer has the opportunity to download and install the latest Windows operating system for free. Windows 10 uses the best of Windows 8/8.1, whilst, due to customer feedback, bringing back some of the much used criteria from Windows Vista and 7 that had originally been disposed of.

New Mid-Range Phone From Sony

Canada is welcoming the release of the new Sony Xperia M4 Aqua, successor to the current M2 model. Sporting a 5" HD display, 13 mega-pixel back camera, 5 mega-pixel front camera and a battery that Sony say will give two days of life, the stylish phone is sure to attract people looking for a fairly cheap phone with lots of features. Like Sony's high-end models the phone is also waterproof, giving a nod to it's name.

One game in particular that will have its first full reveal is Bethesda's 'Fallout 4'. Other games that should be making an appearance include 'Rise of the Tomb Raider' and 'Assassin's Creed Syndicate'.

Apple Watch In-Store Availability

It was announced today that the Apple Watch will be available in store in pricesely two weeks, as the company was finalising the remaining pre-orders that had been placed.
