Just last week we reported on a cool project by Erik Roystan Ross in which he recreated the first level of Super Mario 64 using the Unity engine. As we noted in our post, Ross had no plans to recreate the game in its entirety and was more about showing off the power of the Unity engine, but it looks like regardless of Ross’s intentions, Nintendo isn’t too pleased about it.
The company has recently sent Ross a takedown request claiming that the project infringed upon Nintendo’s intellectual property. The company claims that the game “allows users to play, an electronic game that makes unauthorized use of copyright-protected features of Nintendo’s Super Mario 64 video game.” Read full post →Super Mario 64 HD Fan Project Hit With Legal Takedown Request
The largest handset that we’ve ever seen from Sony is probably the Sony Xperia Z Ultra which was launched in 2013 with a screen size of 6.44-inches, which is actually pretty damn huge for a smartphone. That being said it looks like Sony could be thinking about releasing a slightly smaller handset, according to a recent report from DigiTimes.
The report claims that Sony’s ODMs have begun to develop a 6-inch smartphone for the company and despite its large screen, it seems that it might not necessarily be a high-end device. Apparently this is still part of Sony’s strategy to focus more on mid-range models and upwards rather than focusing on entry-mid level smartphones. With its 6-inch display and its rumored mid-range status, chances are we could be looking at a successor to the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra, but that’s just speculation on our part.
