Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwarz live stream: how to watch tonight’s boxing online from anywhere

Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwarz live stream: how to watch tonight’s boxing online from anywhere

His unique mix of boxing ability and undeniable showmanship means that any Tyson Fury fight is going to be worth watching. Tonight the Gypsy King looks to his extend his undefeated record against another blemish-free contender, the German Tom Schwarz. The showdown is all set for the MGM Grand in Las Vegas (the ideal setting!) and you can live stream Fury vs Schwarz as it happens – it’s even FREE to do so in some areas.
The 30-year-old Fury stands taller at 6ft 9in and has more wins at 27 with a draw in there, too. But even that was a controversial 12-round split draw against WBC World Champion Deontay Wilder.Whereas Schwarz has the age advantage at 25 years-old but is shorter at 6ft 6in and also has less experience with 24 fights. He’s won them all, but the list of defeated opponents is a lot less impressive than Tyson’s. So will it be a foregone conclusion, or is this another Anthony Joshua-style upset in the making?Fury has always wanted to fight in Las Vegas and this, as his debut, should make for a very excited and focused performance. Fury has said: “I really love my job at the minute, more than I have ever done before. I used to think boxing was a chore, a job to go to. I trained hard for a fight and then put a ton of weight back on. Now I enjoy what I do, keep fit even when I am not boxing. I almost live my life as a routine training camp now.”You can live stream Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwarz fight anywhere in the world using the guide below. The cost varies quite a lot over the world, with the UK hosting an expensive PPV that’s undercut massively in the US by ESPN+ and even more by German channel MDR that has the whole thing absolutely FREE!

Live stream Fury vs Schwarz from outside your country
If you’ve been looking forward to this fight and already know where to watch, your plans may be scuppered if you’re out of the country when it’s on. That’s because broadcasters geo-block their coverage if you try to watch from abroad.But there’s a clever workaround for this, which is perfectly legal (assuming the broadcaster’s Ts&Cs allow it) and it involves using a piece of software called a VPN – better that than trying to get some dodgy stream from Reddit.

At the time of writing, we can’t see any evidence that the Tyson Fury and Tom Schwarz boxing behemoth will be shown at all. As a last resort, we suppose you could try downloading a VPN service and then signing up for an option from another country. We’ll be sure to update this section if we hear anything differently.

Pokémon Sword and Shield release date, trailers, news and features

Pokémon Sword and Shield release date, trailers, news and features

After releasing some of the best games in franchise history on the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo and Game Freak are finally ready to bring the main Pokémon games to the Nintendo Switch – the first of which are called Pokémon Sword and Shield.The games will release globally on Nintendo Switch this November and will bring with them a brand-new region, features and Pokémon for trainers to swoon over.The key points Nintendo has announced so far are that the games are set in the Galar Region (basically, a Pokémon-ified version of the UK) and will include a number of new creatures including three new starting Pokémon, Scorbunny, Sobble, and Grookey. We’ll also see a new mechanic called Dynamaxing that will replace Z-Moves and Mega-Evolutions, and more intense gym battles.How does Sword and Shield stack up to Pokémon Let’s Go: Pikachu and Eevee? Those games acted as a sort of reboot of the original Red and Blue titles for the Nintendo Gameboy, and for many didn’t count as a ‘core’ Pokémon experience. Since Pokémon Sword and Shield are the first mainline Pokémon games to come to Nintendo Switch, and expectations are much, much higher.So what do we know, and what are we hoping to see when Pokémon Sword and Shield launch this year? Read on to find out.

During a special Pokémon Sword and Shield focused Nintendo Direct on June 5, Nintendo revealed that Pokémon Sword and Shield will release globally on November 15, 2019. In addition, Nintendo announced pre-orders for a double-pack edition of the games will be available soon.
Pokémon Sword and Shield: trailers
The most recent (and best) glimpse we’ve had of Pokémon Sword and Shield was during a special Nintendo Direct in June. The Nintendo Direct shed a lot of light on what new features we can expect alongside some new Pokémon pals. Check out the video below:

The first Pokémon Sword and Shield trailer didn’t give too much away, but you can see the first glimpse of the environments and art style.You also get a first look at three new starter Pokémon: the fire-rabbit Scorbunny, twig-monkey Grookey, and a sad-looking tadpole (sadpole?) called Sobble.Check the trailer out below:

The last video, released right around the time of E3 2019, highlighted some of the geographical features of the Galar Region and introduced us to raid battles – a mechanic taken from the Pokémon Go mobile game.

Pokémon Sword and Shield news and features
Pokémon Ball PlusWe didn’t hear much about Pokémon Sword and Shield during Nintendo Direct at E3 2019, but it was teased that the Pokémon Ball Plus can be used to take your in-game Pokémon for “a stroll”. However, the ball cannot be used as a controller.In addition, it was teased that “good things” will happen if you build up a strong connection to one Pokémon in particular.Release date revealedNintendo held a special Pokémon Sword and Shield focused Nintendo Direct on June 5 that revealed both games will release globally on November 15, 2019.Max Raid BattlesMuch like Pokémon Go, Sword and Shield has a feature which allows trainers to team up with up to three others online to take on more powerful Pokémon.LegendariesPokémon Sword and Shield’s wolf-like Legendary Pokémon are Zacian (sword) and Zamazenta (shield).Dynamax ModeThis new mode allows trainers to make their Pokémon giant and super-powered. This mode can only be activated once during a battle and lasts three turns before a Pokémon reverts to normal size.
Image credit: NintendoMore new PokémonAlongside the starter Pokémon, Nintendo has also revealed a few more new Pokémon joining Sword and Shield: Wooloo (sheep Pokémon), Gossifleur (a fancy lady Pokémon that evolves into Eldegoss), Drednaw (who resembles a snapping turtle) and Corviknight (a raven and glorified taxi service for the Galar region).Wild AreaGalar features a Wild Area where trainers can explore, battle and capture Pokémon. Which Pokémon appear depends on the environment and weather.StadiumsTrainers will battle Pokémon leaders in Stadiums rather than the usual gyms. These stadiums are huge and packed with a cheering audience. New charactersNintendo revealed your new rival is Hop, whose older brother is the Pokémon champion of Galar. Meanwhile Professor Magnolia and her assistant Sonia will act as your guides.
Image credit: NintendoTrainer outfit customization will be a featureWhile it’s not a brand new feature, trainer outfit customization has been popular with Pokémon players since it was introduced in X and Y. And it’s a feature which a recent Uniqlo competition has confirmed will be in Pokémon Sword and Shield. In a collaboration with The Pokémon Company, the clothing brand asked fans to design a top which would then be sold in stores. Now that the winning entry has been chosen (a design featuring Magikarp and Gyrados) it’s been revealed that the top will also be wearable in Pokémon Sword and Shield as a trainer outfit.Just how many more outfit options there’ll be in the games isn’t known yet, but we’re hoping to catch a glimpse of some more if Nintendo shows us some new Sword and Shield footage during its E3 conference this year. 
Made for handheldWhile the Pokémon Let’s Go games were developed with TV mode in mind, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has stated that Pokémon Sword and Shield will “emphasize the fun of playing Nintendo Switch in handheld mode.” Furukawa made the comments during Nintendo’s March 2019 Financial Results Briefing (via Nintendo Life).
Image credit: NintendoA whole new worldWe know the game is set in a brand new region of Galar, rather than a rehash of Kanto or a previously visited territory. Galar seems to be loosely inspired by England’s cities and countryside, with rolling hills and brickwork cities to explore.The trailer also showed glimpses of jewel-encrusted mines and what might even be a football stadium (see the kit below), though we’re waiting to see whether competing in a Pokémon-themed Football World Cup will be possible for players.Brand new PokémonYup, this is a new generation of Pokémon, meaning you’ll be seeing a lot of new faces – as well as a lot of old ones. The trailer gave us a mix of familiar Pokémon like Pikachu and Hoothoot along the new starters, and we’re hoping Game Freak manage to keep the new designs interesting (no ice cream or candelabra Pokémon, please.)Modern to the coreSword and Shield look to retain the look and 3D animation style of the Pokeémon Let’s Go games that launched on Nintendo Switch last year.Pokémon games haven’t been flat 2D games in years, and has increasingly been moving towards full-size avatars and 3D environments. Some may miss the old-school pixel charm of the earlier games – and find the 3D creature models a bit bland – but for better or worse this is what we’re getting.
Pokémon Stars what?What still confuses us is that we’ve been waiting for the long-rumored Pokémon Stars game for over two years now, Eurogamer. published a report in late 2016 that said multiple sources had confirmed a new version of Pokémon Sun and Moon was being developed for the Switch under the code named Pokémon Stars. While it never materialized, ‘Stars’ could well have been a code-name for what eventually became the Let’s Go games, or could still prove a Switch port for the Sun and Moon games.
We wonder where Pokémon Switch will land on our picks of the best Pokémon games

Final Fantasy 8 is getting remastered and released sometime in 2019

Final Fantasy 8 is getting remastered and released sometime in 2019

While Square Enix’s E3 2019 presentation had the gorgeous Final Fantasy 7 Remake on center-stage, another of its seminal PS1 games was not far behind: Final Fantasy 8 is indeed getting remastered.Before you get your hopes up, that’s remastered, not remade, so don’t expect the same incredible upgrade we’ve seen in the FF7 Remake. On the plus side, Final Fantasy 8 Remastered will take far less time to come out – it’s due sometime in 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.Expectations tempered? Watch the trailer below:

Okay, let’s dive in.
 Guys, Gals, and Guardian Forces 
A quick refresher: Final Fantasy 8 stars Squall Leonhart, a loner training to become a SeeD mercenary as the world tips to war. He’s joined by a motley but spirited crew of other young fighters to unravel the mystery of the tyrannical Sorceress(es), recruit godly Guardian Forces to aid your cause, and dominate strangers at the card game Triple Triad. There’s also a romance and lots of emotions, but focus: the card game is great.If this doesn’t jog your memory, or you haven’t played in a minute, that remastered trailer footage might not look updated at all. Thankfully, Twitter users are to the rescue: 
Sure, some of the geometry is still flat. You can’t have everything. But the facial textures are rounded and much cleaner, with filled-out character models below them (as seen in the Tweet below).
We’ll see how the game looks when more footage is revealed, which we’ll probably get closer to its release date – whenever that is. Even if it’s less glamorous than the completely remade Final Fantasy 7, at least Final Fantasy 8 fans will get to play their revival this year.E3 2019 is the biggest gaming event of the year. TechRadar is reporting live from LA, telling you all about the biggest announcements of the week, from epic game trailers to shocking release date reveals. Follow our expert analysis of the keynotes and what we see on the E3 show floor. 

E3 2019: schedule, press conferences, games list, and leaks

E3 2019: schedule, press conferences, games list, and leaks

E3 2019’s series of press conferences is halfway over, and that means we have half  of the news, game trailers, and even some beta and hardware announcements.Sunday’s big E3 highlight has been the Microsoft press conference, where we got a better idea of the next Xbox One, the Xbox Project Scarlett. It has powerful specs, a late 2020 release date window, and its first launch game, Halo Infinite.But nothing topped the E3 celebrity cameo from Keanu Reeves, who found his way into Cyberpunk 2077, as seen in the new extended E3 2019 trailer. The game has a release date, too: April 16, 2020. It’s shaping up to be the best Xbox One games at E3 2019 (and good news, it’s also coming to PS4 and the PC).We’re updating this page in real-time because there’s a lot more E3 news coming in the next few days, and our E3 2019 games list grows after each press conference. Bethesda had the latest E3 press conference, and we saw Doom Eternal, Deathloop, Ghostwire: Tokyo and vast improvements to Fallout 76. Some Final Fantasy 7 Remake news snuck in at the same time: it’s coming out March 3, 2020.  E3 2019 leaks allowed us to see games before anyone was supposed to as well, like Watch Dogs 3: Legion and Elden Ring from George R.R. Martin and From Software. More E3 surprises are expected: Square Enix’s ambitious Avengers game and Nintendo game to announced at its Nintendo Direct live stream Tuesday.E3 2019 is the biggest gaming event of the year, no matter how much it changes or which companies show up (we’re still running a best PS4 games at E3 2019, even if Sony isn’t actually here). Here’s what we’ve thought was newsworthy at E3 so far.

E3 stands for the Electronic Entertainment Expo, and while that hasn’t changed from year to year, the press conference schedule has gotten shuffled. So we’ll explain it quickly.The official E3 2019 dates are Tuesday, June 11 to Thursday, June 13. However, that’s just for the portion of the show held inside the Los Angeles Convention Center. You know, the massive show floor where game demos happen.E3 press conferences happen in the proceeding days, and this year it started with EA Play on Saturday, June 8 at the Hollywood Palladium. EA’s full day event offered deep dive trailers into EA’s biggest titles. Sunday belonged to Microsoft and Bethesda, while Monday is being reserved for the PC Gaming Show, Square Enix and Ubisoft E3 press conferences. Nintendo has its video presentation Tuesday, right before the E3 show floor opens.
EA E3 press conference timeIt’s over, but we have the EA Play re-cap. It started on Saturday, June 8 at 9:15am PT for fans with tickets at the Hollywood Palladium.What happened?EA didn’t come with surprises, but dedicated about 30 minutes to each previously announced game, providing ample time for game walkthroughs, not just simple trailers and sizzle reels. We actually got to learn about new modes and gameplay mechanics. It was meaningful.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order: gameplay, release date, trailers and newsApex Legends Season 2: Battle CryBattlefield 5 Chapter 4: Defying the Odds – here’s everything new comingFIFA 20: release date, news, Volta modes and everything else there is to knowMadden NFL 20 release date, trailers and gameplay changesThe Sims 4: Island Living expansionStar Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was the highlight from Respawn Entertainment looking a bit like Uncharted with a lightsaber and The Force powers (that’s not a bad thing). There was no Titanfall 3, from the developer, but we did see Apex Legends Season 2: Battle Cry get a start date of July 2.EA Sports gave us deep looks into both FIFA 20 and Madden 20, while Battlefield 5 Chapter 4 and The Sims 4: Island Living expanded their respective (and very different) universes.What wasn’t at EA’s E3 2019?We didn’t get many surprises – BioWare’s Dragon Age 4 has been an E3 no-show, even though it did get a teaser trailer at last year’s The Game Awards. Likewise, we didn’t see anything from PopCap (famous for Plants vs Zombies) and Ghost Games, the new stakeholders of the Need for Speed franchise. And, like we mentioned, Titanfall 3 was a no show, which is no surprise – Respawn is working on two other big games already being shown at E3.
Project Scarlett is official. (Image credit: Microsoft)Microsoft E3 press conference timeMicrosoft started its press conference on Sunday at 1 pm PST, 4 pm EST and 9 pm BST, but it’s one you have to know about, so here’s the E3 re-cap.What happened?A lot. Microsoft had the biggest E3 press conference from the start, and then out walks Keanu Reeves – yes, that Keanu Reeves. He’s starring in Cyberpunk 2077 from developer CD Projekt Red, and while it’s a multi-platform game coming to the PC and PS4, too, Microsoft’s keynote had release date news first: it launches April 16, 2020.We got the first Xbox Project Scarlett console specs, even if we didn’t get to see the hardware or box it comes in. The release window is end of 2020, so there’s another E3 to tease the form factor. We did, however, get an Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, which we plan to go hands-on on the show floor.
Xbox Project Scarlett is the next-gen Xbox Two you’ve been waiting forElden Ring from George R.R. Martin could be the Dark Souls Game of Thrones fans dream ofLego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will collect all nine movies into one family-friendly gameKeanu Reeves will channel his inner ‘Neo’ for Cyberpunk 2077Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 coming November 4Xbox Game Pass for PC is now available as a betaBlair Witch is back at E3 as a videogame – and it actually looks goodOther Microsoft surprises include the revival of the Blair Witch horror franchise in game form and the acquisition of developer Double Fine Games in the run up to its latest Psychonauts 2 trailer. Elden Ring, from George R.R. Martin and Dark Souls’ From Software, was the biggest non-surprise (it leaked ahead of time).Finally, Microsoft ended the show with an extended teaser of Halo Infinite, or Halo 6, which will be exclusive to the company’s forthcoming Project Scarlett console.Microsoft is the only one of the big three console makers that’s definitely at E3 2019 in full capacity – meaning they held a live press conference and a have booth presence at E3.What wasn’t at E3 2019 for Microsoft?
We got information on Microsoft’s next Xbox console, but early rumors talked up two different versions of the console, one with a disc drive and one disc-less, like a more powerful version of the disc-less Xbox One S that came out in May.Microsoft’s Fable franchise hasn’t had a game since 2017, and we still have no official word on the rumored Fable IV game. Also, when Dragon Age 4 from BioWare didn’t show up at EA’s E3 press conference, we were kind up hoping it was because Microsoft wanted to save it for its showcase. That just wasn’t the case.
 Doom Eternal (Image Credit: Bethesda)Bethesda E3 2019 press conference timeIt’s wrapped up, but it happened on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 5:30pm PTWhat happened?No, Elder Scrolls VI or Starfield didn’t show up, something Bethesda told us ahead of time and fans in the audience refused to believe. Hopes dashed, right? Instead, they got some great news about existing games like Fallout 76 battle royal mode, Elder Scrolls Blades expanding on mobile with an update tonight and coming to Nintendo Switch later this year, and two brand new IP, Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop – those two really stuck out.
Deathloop seems like warped-world BioShock with a Groundhog Day twistNintendo Switch is getting The Elder Scrolls: Blades, and it’s going to be freeDoom Eternal was the only game we got hands-on time with at the end of the show, but we expect to see Wolfenstein: Youngblood (announced to release on July 26) and maybe, hopefully Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot (the VR game set for 2019) on the E3 show floor.There’s more Bethesda E3 news still: The Elder Scrolls Online, The Elder Scrolls: Legends, and Rage 2 are getting major content updates, Commander Keen is back and more colorful than ever, this time coming to iOS and Android.What wasn’t at E3 2019 for Bethesda?Like we said, The Elder Scrolls VI wasn’t here, and neither was Starfield – though you can expect Starfield before ES6, according to Bethesda’s release schedule. Bethesda Game Studios executive producer Todd Howard did mention the games by name on stage, but no extra details. Not this year at E3 – maybe next year.
PC Gaming Show (Image Credit: PC Gamer)PC gaming Show press conference timeMonday, June 10, 2019 at 10am PT (1pm ET, 5pm UK)  What we expect
If you’re a PC gamer, you won’t want to miss the PC Gaming Show, which will make its fifth consecutive return to the convention. We’re not sure what to expect from the two-hour event, but if it’s anything like previous years it will feature a number of indie games that wouldn’t usually get time up on the big stage alongside hardware announcements.For folks at home, the event will be available to stream on twitch.tv/pcgamer, or on Facebook or YouTube or, if you’re in town, it’s open to the public with an RSVP at The Mayan Theater.  At last year’s event we got the chance to see a number of new indie games like Neo Cab and Maneater, as well as some heavy-hitting titles like Stormlands from Insomniac and Warframe: The Sacrifice from Digital Extremes. We’re expecting some similar big announcements from this year’s show.  The gaming world might be gearing up for a possible reveal of the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Two at E3 2019, but there’s a lot in store for desktop gamers, too. 
Final Fantasy VII (Image Credit: Square Enix)Square Enix press conference time: The Square Enix’s E3 2019 conference will be held on Monday, June 10, at 6pm PT and 9pm ET or Tuesday, June 11 at 2am BST and 11am AEST.What we expect
After the long-awaited release of Kingdom Hearts 3 in early January, Square Enix has been fairly quiet. But that looks like that’s going to change at E3.Thanks to a tweet posted to the Marvel’s Avengers twitter in late May, we know we’re going to see Crystal Dynamic’s game at the show, as well as Final Fantasy VII Remake which recently had a key spot during Sony’s last State of Play event. We know now that it’ll come out on March 3, 2020.We also know that Square Enix is currently working on Dragon Quest Builders 2 on Nintendo Switch, as it was announced during a Nintendo Direct earlier this year, as well as Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition.Outside of those games, it’s likely we’ll hear more about the next episode in Life is Strange 2, as well as DLC for Kingdom Hearts III. Square Enix might also use the time during its press event to talk about Just Cause 4 and Oninaki. ‘But is it too early to hear something about Final Fantasy 16?’ Yes. Yes, it is.  

Keynote time: N/ASorry guys, unfortunately Sony is skipping the E3 festivities this year and has said that it will instead find another venue to showcase the games and hardware coming down the pipeline.  That said, we won’t rule out another State of Play event, like the one Sony held back in March.If that doesn’t happen, well, we’ll just have to wait to hear more about The Last of Us Part II, Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima.
Beyond Good & Evil 2 (Image Credit: Ubisoft)Keynote time: Monday, June 10, 2019 at 1pm PT (4pm ET, 9pm UK) What we expect
Ubisoft will definitely be back at this year’s E3. The developer-slash-publishing house has a lot on its plate for early 2019 including Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 as well as Trials Rising, both of which came out in the February-March window, but hasn’t said what’s coming later this year.The game we know the most about from Ubisoft that would likely be at this year’s show is Skull and Bones, the ship-focused combat game that looks to carry the torch from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Ubisoft has yet to give us a solid release date for the game, but it’s likely that’s the sort of thing it’s saving for an E3 2019 keynote. It’s also likely we’ll hear more about Beyond Good and Evil 2 and potentially get our first look at the gameplay at Ubisoft’s keynote… but that could just be wishful thinking on our part.Beyond those two games, we’ve heard rumors that Ubisoft will announce three to four new AAA titles in between March 2019 and March 2020, but we can only speculate what’s to come. The only franchise that’s definitely not going to be there is a mainline Assassin’s Creed game as Ubisoft has said that it will be skipping a release in 2019. 
Animal Crossing (Image Credit: Nintendo)Nintendo Video DirectTuesday, June 11, 2019 at 9am PT (12pm ET)What we expect
While Sony won’t be at this year’s event, Nintendo most certainly will – first digitally in a Nintendo Direct that usually airs Tuesday morning and then physically when its massive booth takes over West Hall. In terms of what games Nintendo is going to bring with it this year, the company says we’ll hear more about Pokemon Sword and Shield, as that’s due out by the end of 2019, plus the Link’s Awakening Remake and Mario Maker 2.We’re hoping we’ll also hear more about Animal Crossing on Nintendo Switch, which was announced in 2018 and given a 2019 launch window, but there’s no guarantee from Nintendo that we’ll catch Tom Nook at this year’s show. Beyond those core games, we know Nintendo is developing Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Fire Emblem Three Houses, the latter of which should be available in August unless it’s delayed. Nintendo could also use the time to show off its next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character pack. Either way, we’ll find out more on June 11 at 9am PT.

Devolver Digital E3 press conference time The video landed on Sunday night Pacific time.What happened… or didn’t happen?Devolver Digital always has a weird and bloody E3 presentation, and this year was no different. It’s a parody-filled direct video (not an actual press conference) that could be described as the exact opposite of a Nintendo Direct. It’s kind of refreshing and always strange, care of their fictional CEO Nina Struthers.This year’s announcement? They’re selling bootleg versions of their own games at 1% off. This includes Hotline Milwaukee (really, Hotline Miami) and Catsylvania (really Gato Roboto). 

Google E3 press conference timeTechnically not a keynote, but the first Stadia Connect aired on June 6 at 9 am PDTWhat happenedWhile it’s not technically part of E3 as it doesn’t have a partnership with the ESA, Google has shown that it wants to be part of the big show by leading the week’s events with a Google Stadia announcement.In a 25-minute presentation held on June 6, Google Stadia boss (and former Microsoft VP) Phil Harrison gave us our first tangible details about the new streaming service coming later this year. The TL;DW? Stadia will cost $9.99 per month and will allow you unlimited game-streaming in 4K HDR at 60fps. You can play on your TV with a Chromecast Ultra, or your laptop or desktop in a Chrome browser. You’ll also be able to game on your smartphone… as long as you own a Google Pixel device. Want to know more about Google’s ambitious venture into video games?

Asus to launch the Zenfone 6 as ‘6z’ in India on June 19

Asus to launch the Zenfone 6 as ‘6z’ in India on June 19

Asus India has been teasing the launch of their much-awaited affordable flagship ZenFone 6 in the country from quite a while but the recent controversy around the name ‘Zen’ has been causing legal restrain on its arrival.While Asus and its e-commerce partner Flipkart have been prepping to create a hype for the new device, the Delhi High Court restrained the company from selling and advertising their mobile products under the Zen, Zenfone or any other similar branding. To stop further delay in the launch, the company has found a new workaround that doesn’t abide the order – launching the Zenfone 6 with a new name called Asus 6z. As planned, the launch will take place on June 19 but the phone will be called Asus 6z. Flipkart and Asus, both have officially revealed the new name and the launch date of the phone, but there are no details about the availability and price of the same. Since the issue was only raised on the name, it’s very likely that we won’t get to see any change in the specifications and design of the phone. The phone has a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.The Asus 6z will also have a motorised rotating camera module with a 48MP primary shooter with f/1.79 aperture accompanied by a 13MP secondary ultra-wide-angle camera. The phone is expected to be priced around the same as the OnePlus 7 as it’s the only direct competitor that it has in the market right now. 
Delhi High Court prohibits Asus from selling phones under ZenFone brand from July 23 in India

George R.R. Martin’s next project is a FromSoftware game, report confirms

George R.R. Martin’s next project is a FromSoftware game, report confirms

The rumors of a team-up between George R.R. Martin and FromSoftware have been in the air for a little while, and now a massive leak on Bandai Namco’s website just before E3 2019 has shown off details of the upcoming project called Elden Ring, as spotted by Gematsu.The details mention that the game will come for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, which suggests a launch timeline in the near term before the arrival of a new generation of consoles. It will be a fantasy action-RPG set in a world from Dark Souls’ creator  Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin, the author behind the series A song of Ice and Fire and the Game of Thrones television series that spawned from it.Beyond these details, there’s little else revealed, but the game description mentions that “danger and discover lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date.”

The previous rumors had suggested the game we now know to be named Elden Ring will be officially announced Sunday at Microsoft’s E3 2019 presentation. So, we may find out more Sunday at 1 pm PST, 4 pm EST and 9 pm BST.The team up between FromSoftware and George R.R. Martin likely makes a lot of sense to fans of the Dark Souls and A Song of Ice and Fire series. Both have a level of unforgiving brutality to them, and that’s what makes them so compelling to many.In FromSoftware’s games, you are faced with sure death frequently. And in George R.R. Martin’s stories, no character is safe, even the most beloved. While the Dark Souls series, Bloodbourne, and the newer Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice games have taken place in bleak worlds, the collaboration with George R.R. Martin could spell a more vibrant, colorful world. And, given that it will be FromSoftware’s largest game yet, it’s likely to be a substantial open world Stay tuned to all our reporting on E3 2019 to find out all the latest on Elden Ring and other major titles.Via Kotaku
Here’s everything we expect to see from Xbox at E3 2019

OnePlus 7 Pro starts receiving OxygenOS 9.5.7 update with a ton of camera improvements

OnePlus 7 Pro starts receiving OxygenOS 9.5.7 update with a ton of camera improvements

Launched just weeks back, OnePlus 7 Pro is now receiving a major update which improves the camera performance of the phone by a lot. The OxygenOS 9.5.7 update is rolling out to users in batches and should hit your phones soon.At the time of launch, OnePlus had promised to release a camera update that was also provided to DxOMark for their lab tests. Subsequently, OnePlus 7 Pro was awarded a score of 111 which puts it just below Huawei’s P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10, while it ties with the Honor 20 Pro. However, as we noted in our review of the OnePlus 7 Pro, the cameras definitely increase its versatility but aren’t groundbreaking.The new 9.5.7 build brings several improvements to the camera performance including fixes to contrast, colours, white balance, autofocus, saturation, noise and Nightscape mode. In addition, the update also optimizes gestures, fixes ambient display issues, brings improved audio quality and touch sensitivity.Some users were also reporting about issues with the display such as phantom touchscreen taps and unresponsive areas on the screen.

While Playstation 4 Pro bundles are constantly shifting from store to store, we’ve listed and ranked the best current options from the major retailers below so you don’t have to do the sniffing and scratching yourself. Remember that the value of a bundle will ultimately come down to whether or not you were going to purchase the included game (or games) anyway and while some bundles are obviously better priced than others, you should check to see if that saving is worthwhile.

What is the PS4 Pro?
Although the PS4 Pro isn’t a ‘next-gen’ console necessarily, it is an upgrade of the PS4 and features the coveted 4K and HDR options that we’re hearing so much about. The new machine will allow game developers to include 4K options in their games, so expect the like of Uncharted 4, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Days Gone, Horizon: Zero Dawn and more to look even better on a 4K TV.HDR, or High Dynamic Range is the other buzzword to be excited about as the PS4 Pro will allow for extra detail to be seen on a range of games and also a wider range of colours not usually displayed by traditional HD TVs.
Will my old PS4 games work on PS4 Pro?
Yes. While not every game will be patched to take advantage of the new 4K/HDR capabilities, all of your old games will still work. Not only that, but the default upscaling (if you have a 4K TV) will likely see some improvements to the visuals and the boosted console power may give a slight nudge to the frame rates for some smoother play.
What else can I watch in 4K/HDR on PS4 Pro?
With services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video adopting 4K and HDR, with an ever-growing library entering the services, the PS4 Pro will be excellent as a streaming and media hub for your home theatre. There’s also a lot of free 4K content on the YouTube app, and Stan has plenty of 4K although no HDR-compatible content yet.
Does the PS4 Pro support 4K Blu-rays?
No. The Xbox One S does support them though, so this was a bit of a surprise from Sony. So if you’re specifically after a 4K Blu-ray player then head over to the competition, but as many viewers are crossing over to streaming services for their digital viewing, this may prove a wise move from Sony in the long run.
Do I need a 4K TV to run a PS4 Pro?
You don’t NEED a 4K TV, no. The PS4 Pro will still run as per normal on a regular 1080p TV, although you won’t get the benefits of upscaling or HDR though. There’s a chance you may see a frame-rate boost or a slim amount of extra detail, but we wouldn’t expect a massive leap.If your mind is on a 4K TV, then you should probably go with a Pro rather than a Slim as it’ll future proof you for a while and, realistically, the price jump is worth the longevity. Be sure to look out for a TV that supports HDR too, in order to take full advantage of the PS4 Pro’s capabilities.
Will PlayStation VR be better on the PS4 Pro?
Maybe. Early reports seem to suggest it will as the PlayStation VR frame-rate is better on PS4 Pro and the resolution gets a bit of a bump too. You don’t need a PS4 Pro to use PlayStation VR but this increase in specs may contribute a little to the immersion.
Does the PS4 Pro have optical audio support?
Yes! Although the optical audio output has been removed from the PS4 Slim, PS4 Pro owners  will still be able to use optical connections for their soundbars and sound systems.
What are the best games on PS4 Pro?
After scrounging through our back catalogue of PS4 games that have received a Pro update patch, we’ve come up with a feature packed with the games that look the best and have a noticeable difference. Take a look at our extensive list – The best PS4 Pro games.

Dual OLED screens and 5G, oh my! LG’s V50 ThinQ lands in Australia next week

Dual OLED screens and 5G, oh my! LG’s V50 ThinQ lands in Australia next week

Revealed at MWC 2019 back in February, LG’s most advanced flagship phone to date, the LG V50 ThinQ, will be available to purchase in Australia from Tuesday June 11, 2019.Boasting the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset (7nm) and an X50 5G modem, the V50 ThinQ also sports an Adreno 640 GPU, 128GB of onboard storage (a microSD slot allows for up to 2TB  of additional space), IP68 water and dust resistance and a 6.4-inch QHD+ (1,440 x 3,120) OLED display.Audio purists will also be pleased to hear that the V50 ThinQ once again supports 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC and DTS:X 3D surround sound, and the increasingly rare 3.5mm headphone jack is also back.In terms of its photographic capabilities, the LG V50 ThinQ features a triple-lens (16MP super wide + 12MP standard + 12MP telephoto) setup on its rear, and a dual-lens (8MP standard + 5MP wide) front-facing camera for selfies and group-shots.
5G: everything you need to know5G: everything you need to take advantage5 things 5G will do that you didn’t expectA different kind of foldable
Along with being LG’s first 5G handset (we witnessed a speed test that saw the device reach download speeds of 1.258Gbps and upload speeds of 70.4Mbps), the V50 ThinQ’s biggest selling point comes in the form of a snap-on folio case that sports an additional 6.2-inch FHD+ (2,160 x 1,080) OLED screen, allowing for powerful dual-screen multitasking. The secondary display communicates with the V50 via three small contact pads on the phone’s rear, which align with three pins within the case.We got our hands on the device at its Australian launch in Sydney and were suitably impressed with how simple it was to launch independent apps on each display and switch between the two screens.In order to test this functionality, we used the top display to watch movie trailers on YouTube while browsing the Google Play Store, checking tweets and sending messages to friends from the bottom display.We were also able to expand the device’s keyboard to full-screen, making the V50 ThinQ resemble an adorably-tiny laptop. It’s worth noting that this functionality is only available with LG’s built-in keyboard, and won’t work with Google’s Gboard or other third-party keyboard apps.
Later, we launched LG’s new virtual gamepad on the bottom display and used it to be play Sonic the Hedgehog and Lineage II: Revolution without our hands getting in the way of the action.In our experience, controlling the LGs V50 ThinQ across two screens quickly became second nature. That said, the phone felt quite hefty and thick with the second screen attached. Thankfully, detaching the second screen is as simple as taking a phone out of its protective case.LG’s V50 ThinQ will be available from Telstra at the outright price of $1,728 – quite reasonable for a flagship 5G phone that boasts top-of-the-line specs and a second OLED display in the box. Of course, Telstra will also be offering the device on 24-month plans starting at $114 per month for 3GB of data – which, just for what it’s worth, you could burn through in less than 3 seconds on a 5G connection – and ranging all the way up to $199 per month for unlimited data.
Telstra secures the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and LG V50 ThinQ as 5G exclusives

Joshua vs Ruiz Jr live stream: how to watch tonight’s big fight from anywhere

Joshua vs Ruiz Jr live stream: how to watch tonight’s big fight from anywhere

Fight night has arrived, and the unified heavyweight champion of the world is at Madison Square Garden. The UK’s Anthony Joshua is putting his belts on the line against Mexican Andy Ruiz Jr in New York City tonight. And you’re in the right place to see all the boxing with a Joshua vs Ruiz Jr live stream – no matter where in the world you are.
The undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Anthony Joshua, will be stepping into the ring for the first time since September last year. They say that it’s the boxing fight Anthony Joshua can’t win either way. Beating Andy Ruiz Jr too early, and it looks like a no-contest. Go all the way and AJ looks weak. Lose and…well, that’s just unthinkable. But this is in no way an insignificant fight, with Joshua making his US debut – and at Madison Square Garden, no less. His IBF, WBA Super, WBO and IBO world heavyweight titles are on the line 
He was due to fight Jarrell Miller but that fight fell through after Miller failed the drugs tests. That’s how Ruiz Jr now has the chance to step up in class to take on the champion. But it’s thought this fight will be in the hands of the champ as a setup to a fight between him and Deontay Wilder. He’ll have to take care of business at Madison Square Garden on Saturday first, though.Joshua has so far had 22 fights which he won every one of with 21 KOs. But Ruiz has had 33 fights, won 32 and also got 21 KOs. So, on paper, Ruiz Jr could be a real threat. You won’t want to miss it – read on to see how to get that Joshua vs Ruiz Jr live stream.

How to watch the Joshua vs Ruiz Jr fight from outside your country
If you want to watch the boxing outside of your country you may find that the content is geo-restricted. That could mean that, despite having access when on home turf, you are blocked while away. Fret not, that can be rectified with the use of a clever piece of software called a VPN – better that than hunting for some dodgy, illegal stream on Reddit.
