Kotaku reports that Microsoft and Samsung have teamed up to immerse your gaming experience into a whole room. Using the next gen kenect, projections will illuminate your room after it has been scanned for size and furniture. This explaines earlier leaked documents which showed "hologram-like" technology for the supposed next gen console from Microsoft.

And instead of those annoying red arrows that show up when you are being hit or shot at, maybe it can flash the wall red on that side of the TV you're being damaged from. I never really found the arrows useful because now days the whole screen flashes red, and I panic trying to find what's hitting me, I don't have time to look at the red arrow blended in with the red kool-aid vision I'm beating hit with.

 

This could also be useful to set some neat ambient environmental effects. You could definitely set up some epic scenery with rain, and have the projections portray lightning effects. Perhaps tree off screen can rustle their leaves in the wind. The applications for horror games have a lot of potential... things can be crawling on your walls, they can slightly blur the off screen to keep you paranoid... or just flash things temporarily to catch you off guard.

Hell yeah, that all sounds awesome. The damn red hit indicators always annoy me. Half the time when I see one to the side, I rotate to that side just to see the hit marker rotate a bit with me and not give me any real indication where I'm being hit from. -_-

      I haven't been following Xbox products and I was surprised to see this one. I thought it was the new upgraded Xbox.. it is but it isn't. It's basically the Xbox One Slim. Its 40% smaller, larger hard drive, 4k bluray player and HDR video. Theres still another upgraded Xbox coming out in the near future that should allow 4k gameplay. This slim version is what I envisioned the initial Xbox One would have been. But instead they released that mandatory camera system with it and refused to make bluray movies play on the system unless you download an app. Probably because sony owns bluray tech. The Xbox One S came out just yesterday and now I'm wondering how much longer it'll be before we see a PS4 slim and if it'll have extra features.

      How did everyone luck out with black friday deals? Amazon matched most of the sales I was keeping my eye on. I ended up getting a new PS4 controller for $40 (my current one has taken some heavy BF4 damage to the left thumbstick), Walking Dead Season 2 PS4 for $19.99 and Shadow of Mordor PS4 for $25. I'd have bought Wolfenstein The New Order also for $25, but I need to save some cash and with how often I play games (and the two games I just bought), by the time I go to play it I could get it cheaper used.
       
      I also need to hit the pet store later to buy some new dog beds for 50% off.

      The new weapons and gear seem cool. I wish the game would emphasize more on the plot and new locations. I was hoping to see a new world shown in this trailer, but it doesn't. Instead it looks like they added some more missions to the earth and the moon and added 1 strike and a raid that I'll probably never complete. But at least there is all new raid gear for the hard core players. I'll definitely play this when it comes out to see how the new story missions are but I wish they would add match making to the raids and weekly missions tho to make the game a bit more enjoyable.

      Now that the full game is out, I figure we can retire the old Beta topic. I started playing Destiny yesterday for less than an hour and my initial impressions is that the game definitely feels more polished from the beta. It feels more fluid, the graphics look a bit crisper, the foot prints your character makes in the sand are more accurate with each foot step. Right when the game starts, walk to some sand and stare at your feet while you walk. All the little things look great, dust on your HUD, a cracked RDS on that old salvaged rifle you initially find. Overall I'm rather impressed and I'm also quite pleased that I already got a sniper rifle as my first secondary weapon. Any pre-order bonuses you might be due are all located at the postmaster in the tower. You get 3 ghost casing, 2 gamestop sparrows and 1 ship. Grab them all, equip them on your main character and throw the extras into your storage for your other characters to use later on.
       
      I uploaded some screenshots of the bonuses to see what they look like. I must say tho, I've already seen better looking ships other players acquired in the beta. The ghost casing and sparrow look decent. But the sparrows I saw in the beta had quick strafing abilities while this one only has the quick break. So my guess is that these bonuses are all pretty much first tier kind of unlocks and we'll all have something better within a couple weeks.
       
        *edit*   I got an email from Bungie telling me I have another emblem waiting for me and to speak to Tess to receive it. I also forgot to mention that the postmaster had that Destiny Beta stress test emblem for me. But there was only 1 of those. I have not tried making an extra character yet to see if I get more duplicates of any of the pre-order items or if the initial duplicates were specifically given to the first character on the account.
