Bad news folks, if you were hoping for Fallout 4 to be announced in the near future, prepare to be disappointed. It turns out that the website, The Survivor 2299, was revealed to be an elaborate hoax pulled off by someone of the Fallout community. However given the complexity of the hoax, such as updating it with morse code that made references to the game, we guess it can’t be helped that many bought into it. The website was launched back in November and shortly after, the Fallout 4 trademark was filed, although the trademark was soon disproved and turned out to be a fake. At that point there were many who were speculating that the website was a fake, but the constant updates gave fans hope that Bethesda might announce something after the Spike TV VGX.
The Spike TV VGX will be taking place this weekend and shortly before, Bethesda’s Pete Hines revealed that the company had nothing to announce then, although the website’s countdown to the 11th of December had some believing that we could be seeing a post-Spike TV VGX announcement. A message was left by the prankster, which reads, “Don’t hate bethesda, hate me. That’s all. I really hope you’ll get a real Fallout 4 soon, guys.” So there you have it guys, it turns out the entire thing was too good to be true after all. Will we be seeing a Fallout 4? That’s hard to say, but Bethesda has promised that they will be “making more noise” later this year, but we guess it will not be with a Fallout 4 announcement. Either way stayed tuned and we’ll keep you guys updated with any future announcements or teasers that might come our way!
Huawei, the OEM from China has recently sent out an invitation for an event that will take place this coming December 16th, and when you take into consideration that the word “Honor” has already been printed on the invite itself, one would be hard pressed to think of anything else other than the fact that this would be the event where the Huawei Honor 4 is launched. Just in case you were wondering, the Huawei Honor 4 is also known as the Huawei Glory 4 in other markets. Regardless, a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, and the Honor 4/Glory 4 will feature MediaTek’s octa-core MT65492 processor.
This celebrated processor claims to run all 8 cores simultaneously, which will be different from Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 5 chip, where the latter relies on big.LITTLE architecture which would allow a group of four cores to run at any one time. Rumored hardware specifications of the Huawei Honor 4 include a 5.5″ display at 720 x 1280 resolution, 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory, a 13MP shooter at the back and a 5MP front facing camera, with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box. Now, to wait for the really serious stuff that all of us have been looking out for – pricing and availability details which will hopefully be revealed on December 16th as well.
