If we draw an almost totally arbitrary line in the sand and call it “500 pixels per inch,” then smartphones now stand proudly on one side of it, while tablets still languish on the other. Japan Display is gently nudging the market forward, however, with the 4K 12-inch tablet panel we saw last year (which offered 365 ppi) and now with a 4K 10-inch prototype that delivers a much higher pixel density of 438 ppi. That’s good news for Chuck Yeagers who reckon they can spot the difference, but Japan Display is promising something even more important: It claims its 4K (3,840 x 2,160) screens have just the same appetite for energy as the regular 2,560 x 1,600 panels found in manytablets today. That means 4K slates could arrive at no cost to battery life, relative to current technology, leaving us with just the pesky financial and computational overheads to deal with instead.
One of the world’s best RPGs could finally be playable on modern machines: the ESRB has just ratedSuikoden II for PlayStation 3. P
ESRB ratings are often the precursor to a re-release on Sony’s digital PlayStation Network, where you can buy a number of classic PS1 and PS2 games to be played on PS3, PSP, and Vita. Earlier this month, an ESRB rating for Persona 4 inadvertently revealed that Atlus would be re-releasing that classic PS2 game for PSN.
Suikoden II, released by Konami for the PlayStation back in 1999, is the second in the series and generally considered to be one of the greatest role-playing games ever made.
Though Konami released the first Suikodenon the PlayStation Network a few years ago, we’ve never seen Suikoden II, and the game’s rarity has led to some insane price spikes on eBay and the like. PlayingSuikoden II legally today can be quite the challenge, which is why fans have spent years begging Konami for a re-release. Looks like that day is finally here. Maybe. Hopefully.P
We’ve reached out to Konami to see what’s up. More as we hear it.P
Assassin’s Creed Unity will allegedly feature a four-player narrative co-op mode, The Escapist reports.
