One of the harder press conferences to get into in person at CES is the Samsung one. There's always a ridiculous line that you have to wait in, sometimes for over an hour, just to make sure you get a seat. While that is what we have to do, even with our invite, you can chill at home or work and watch it right here live.
You'll have to excuse us this morning, the weather here is Las Vegas has made the traffic a bit more terrible than it usually is and so we have been a bit late getting to the press conferences this morning. We barely made it in time for the LG one, and then ran to the Huawei conference as well. You can join in on watching the event with us, albeit using the live stream, but you're there with us in spirit.
Good news for those of you wanting to grab an Oculus Rift headset the moment they become available. Pre-orders will be going live this week, or more specifically, in a couple of days. Snagging one of these headsets will also net you a few freebies that will come with it including two games: Eve: Valkyrie and Lucky's Tale.
Each year at CES we get to sit down with our friends at Mad Catz to check out their newest offerings for the mobile gaming world. Last year it was the L.Y.N.X series of controllers, which are rather cool indeed. This year they will have those available as well as some new mobile goodies in the form of controllers specifically designed for Samsung smartphones and tablets.
This year Nvidia is holding their press conference tonight at 6PM PST, and you can watch it live in numerous places including right here. Last year's press conference and overall show for Nvidia focused a lot on the automotive industry and Nvidia products for it. So what's in store for this year?
LG has debuted two new Android smartphones at CES this morning in a new series of devices dubbed the 'K Series'. The company states that these new smartphones will feature many of the features their premium devices come with, but at a lower, more affordable price than their top tier phones. The first two devices in this new series are the K10 and the K7, both of which will be shown off during CES 2016.
With Christmas and New Years over for 2015, and being a few days into a fresh new year, this can only mean one thing and that is its time for CES 2016. Like always we will be there, checking out all the latest and greatest in regards to Android, whether it be a bunch of new devices, new peripherals, or whatever else you can think of. There's always something good for Android gamers at CES.
It's time for another DroidGamers Deals, and this time it is a double listing with a ScreenStick Joystick for mobile gaming, and a new Unity 5 Game Development bundle on sale. These bundles for game development have been quite good so far and this one is pretty solid as well.
The closer it gets to Christmas, the less time people have to buy all the presents they need to get in time before the big day arrives. This is especially true for myself as I always seem to get behind on buying everyone's presents until the last minute. If you are looking for a good deal on Amazon's Fire TV Gaming Edition, whatever the reason may be for getting one, there is one going on right now.
While there might be a bit of a debate as to whether or not this Android device can be considered a phablet, mainly because its screen size is 5.5" and it really depends on your definition of a phablet. Either way, if you're looking for a large screen Android device for a super low price, Amazon has exactly that right now for sale.
Chromecast, the dongle that allows apps to project content on to TVs, is getting more attention from Google. According to the Google developer's blog, the company just announced the release of the "Google Cast Remote Display plugin for Unity". What it does is make games based on the Unity engine take advantage of Chromecast's screen casting ability.
