Space Odyssey helps launch first 8K TV channel

Japanese broadcaster NHK said it had asked Warner Bros to scan the original film negatives in 8K for its new channel.

Super-high definition 8K pictures offer 16 times the resolution of HD TV.

As well as improved picture resolution, broadcasts can include 24 channels of audio for immersive surround sound experiences.
It is hoping to broadcast the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games using the new format.
Television manufacturers including Samsung and LG have announced 8K-capable television sets, but they are still prohibitively expensive for widespread adoption.


NHK's new channel BS8K will broadcast programmes for about 12 hours a day.
The first programme at 10:00 local time (01:00 GMT) will be an information broadcast, highlighting future shows on the channel.
The channel will also broadcast live from Italy to showcase "popular tourist attractions from Rome, as well as food, culture and history".


NHK said it had chosen to broadcast 2001: A Space Odyssey on its launch night so that viewers could enjoy a "masterpiece of film history".
Although many movies are shot on 35mm film, 2001: A Space Odyssey was shot on 70mm film, which was the highest quality available at the time.Warner Bros was able to scan the original film negatives, repair scratches and provide an 8K version of the film that captures the "power and beauty of the original".


"The many famous scenes become even more vivid, with the attention to detail of director Stanley Kubrick expressed in the exquisite images, creating the feeling of really being on a trip in space, allowing the film to be enjoyed for the first time at home," NHK said in a statement.

In March, the channel will broadcast My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn, which was also shot on 70mm film.
Japanese electronics-maker Sharp began selling its first 8K television in 2015. At launch it cost $133,000 (£104,000). Currently, a Samsung 8K television costs about $15,000 (£11,700) to buy.


Viewers will also need an 8K-capable satellite receiver. Sharp produces one that costs 250,000 yen (£1,750; $2,200). It requires four HDMI cables to get the pictures into a Sharp TV set, and another cable for sound.Since 8K televisions and receivers are not yet owned by many people, NHK intends to showcase equipment in venues around Japan.

"8K is at the moment based around watching at the time of broadcast," it said in a statement. "We plan to increase the number of chances to watch through rebroadcasts."

"Content has always been crucial for a new TV technology to take off," Joe Cox, editor-in-chief of technology news site What Hi-Fi, told the BBC.

"The launch of the world's first 8K TV channel is great news, even if it is only in Japan. But realistically, mass market adoption is still a long, long way off.

"While the likes of Amazon and Netflix have charged head first into 4K this year, the BBC is only at the trial stage, and others are still struggling to stream HD, so 8K remains a pipedream in the UK.

"But with TV brands suggesting 8K resolution screens can improve 4K and even HD pictures, expect to see plenty more 8K TVs in 2019, even if the content doesn't come so quickly."

Esports is an official medal event at the Southeast Asian Games

The Southeast Asian Games, an event taking place every two years and supervised by the International Olympic Committee and the Olympic Council of Asia, will include esports for the first time when it comes to the Philippines in 2019.

The Philippines SEA Games Organizing Committee made the announcement today, revealing that it would be partnering with Razer to support the Filipino athletes.

“Gamers are an important part of our community,” said chairman emeritus Alan Peter Cayetano. It’s the first time esports has been included in a medal event capacity. It featured in the Asian Games earlier this year, but only as a demonstration. In 2022, however, it will be added as an official medal event.

Six gold medals will be awarded across multiple platforms. Two golds will be up for grabs on console, two for PC and finally two for mobile, with qualifiers being held for individual games. These games are still up in the air. The only announced game so far is Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, a MOBA for mobiles. The final list will be out by December 15.

Notably, there are restrictions established by the International Olympic Committee, and games featured cannot promote violence or gambling. This is one of the rules that has held esports back from becoming a medal event in the Olympic Games. An esports forum was held earlier this year, resulting in the creation of the Esports Liaison Group. It’s meant to facilitate communication between the committee and esports representatives, which would be great if IOC president Thomas Bach was on-board. In an Associated Press interview in September, Bach rolled out the old “but video games are too violent” chestnut.

"We cannot have in the Olympic program a game which is promoting violence or discrimination," he said. "So-called killer games. They, from our point of view, are contradictory to the Olympic values and cannot therefore be accepted."

Bach was an Olympic fencer, a sport that celebrates stabbing people with swords.

The 2019 Southeast Asian Games will start on November 30, 2019.

How to watch The Game Awards 2018 and what game reveals to expect

The Game Awards went through a couple television iterations before settling into its latest routine: a December livestream hosted by producer Geoff Keighley, with awards (voted on by a mixture of public and press) handed out to developers in between trailer reveals.
Some big games have been debuted on The Game Awards in the past, including No Man's Sky. The unsustainable buzz that game generated might not be considered a high point, but it certainly gave the show a reputation for interesting surprises. Last year we got a teaser for From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice before the name had been announced, and this year we're told to expect over 10 new games to be shown. Here's how and when to watch the show, and what we think we'll see:


When is The Game Awards 2018?

The Game Awards will be broadcast from Los Angeles on Thursday, December 6, 2018 at 5:30 pm PST.
If you're one of the many people in the world who doesn't live on North America's Pacific coast, here's a breakdown of when that might be for you:


Thursday
Pacific: 5:30 pm | Mountain: 6:30 pm | Central: 7:30 pm | Eastern: 8:30 pm | Argentina: 10:30 pm | Brazil: 11:30 pm


Friday
London (GMT): 1:30 am | Paris (CET): 2:30 am | Moscow: 4:30 am | China: 9:30 am | Japan: 10:30 am | Brisbane (AEST): 11:30 am | Sydney (AEDT): 12:30 pm


How do I watch The Game Awards?

The Game Awards 2018 will be livestreamed in 4K on YouTube, as well as on Twitch, Mixer, and Steam. You can also view it via your Xbox or PlayStation, if you've got one of those hooked up to your TV.

What are The Game Awards 2018 nominees?

There are 30 categories this year, which range from Game of the Year to Best Content Creator. You can view a complete list of nominees and cast your votes for the winners here.

Before public voting began, the nominees were selected by a 69-member jury of publications, of which PC Gamer is one. (If we had our way, all that Red Dead Redemption 2 and God of War nonsense would be stricken from the ballot, but we suppose that's why we're not the only outlet that gets to vote.)

What Game Awards 2018 reveals are rumored?

The big rumor right now is that a new Alien game, probably titled Alien: Blackout, will be revealed at The Game Awards. A 20th Century Fox trademark suggests as much, and the marketing for the show is suspiciously Alien-like, specifically the 'Worlds Will Change' tagline. There are also these photos of Hideo Kojima to consider.

Speaking of Kojima, expect more on Death Stranding, too. Kojima is a member of the show's advisory board and friend of Keighley, and it's basically tradition now that he'll show up with new footage—though, sadly, it's looking doubtful right now that Death Stranding will see a PC release, at least initially.

Keighley specifically said that "more than 10 new games" (emphasis ours) will be revealed, and as Death Stranding doesn't count toward that number, we can expect the Alien game plus nine more new games, and apparently even more than that, which is a bigger lineup of reveals than usual.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is likely to make a cameo, though that's not of much concern to us. Other big publishers who might be spending some advertising money include EA, Activision, Tencent, Warner Bros, Ubisoft, and Microsoft. Valve pitches in on the advisory board, too, but doesn't typically go in for big marketing opportunities like this one, preferring to announce projects on its own or at lower-key events like GDC.

Obsidian got the speculation ball rolling with an odd tweet asking if anyone was "getting those ads on obsidian.net???" Going to the site (which of course everyone immediately did) brings up an old-timey-looking pop-up saying, "Stay tuned for a special message from Auntie Cleo's," which will be delivered "live December 6th at the Game Awards!"

Clicking the "skip" button leads to a second pop-up with a similar visual theme and images of skim crème, energizing ointment, what appears to be a carton of bread, and something called "anthrocill," although that may not be the complete word. (The jar of energizing ointment is leaning in front of the label a bit.) There's also a spot of scratchy music that plays when the second pop-up appears, repeating Auntie Cleo's "better than nature" mantra.

Also a New Anthem Trailer to Premiere

Bioware teases secret Dragon Age stuff ahead of Games Awards


Bioware General Manager Casey Hudson has teased a Dragon Age announcement which could come in December. In a blog post on Bioware's official website, Hudson said that the development team have been working on some secret Dragon Age stuff.

We've known that a new Dragon Age game is in works for quite some time. Bioware boss Casey Hudson revealed the information earlier this year saying that the developer is listening to Dragon Age and Mass Effect fans and they have something in the works which will please the fans of both franchises.

Hudson mentioned "secret Dragon Age stuff" again in November update post on Bioware's official blog. Most of the time he talked about Anthem but at the very end, he drops a small Dragon Age tease saying that more info will come in December.

"You know we’re also working on some secret Dragon Age stuff. Dragon Age is an incredibly important franchise in our studio, and we’re excited to continue its legacy. Look for more on this in the coming month (though I won’t tell you where to look…)," Hudson said.

The last part is pretty interesting as Hudson didn't want to reveal where the info will be released. It's possible that one of the places for new Dragon Age game announcement will be The Games Awards show which is set for next week.

All of this is speculation of course but Bioware will be one of the developers on TGA as they plan to talk more about the upcoming MMO Anthem. It would be the right time and place for Bioware to announce their next RPG and everything seems to be pointing in that direction.

Bioware shared some details about Dragon Age earlier this year saying that the focus will be set on story and characters and it will follow EA's live service model. For us, this means a lack of content on launch but according to Hudson, live service will simply allow the game to grow over time.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries launches in September 2019


MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will launch Sept. 10, 2019, Piranha Games announced at MechCon 2018 on Saturday. The studio rolled out a new trailer and some snazzy new screenshots to accompany the announcement.

The video touts the game’s combat and gameplay, construction and maintenance of the mechs, and destructible landscapes where they shall throw down and blow your ass away in September. At last year’s MechCon, Piranha said MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries would launch with four-player co-operative multiplayer and full mod support.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries will be set during the Third and Fourth Succession Wars in the series’ canon. Players will be faced with decisions to make on which mercenary contracts to accept, where in the galaxy they should concentrate their efforts, and how to manage resources to upgrade and repair their units.

Mercenaries, originally due sometime this year, was delayed into 2019 back in June. Piranha Games said at the time the delay was necessary “so that we can deliver the best single-player MechWarrior experience to date.” MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries is the first single-player, first-person action game created in the BattleTech universe since since 2002’s MechWarrior 4: Vengeance.

Fallout 76 Patch Notes For December 4th

The next big patch for Bethesda's multiplayer RPG Fallout 76 is coming soon, and now developer Bethesda has posted the full patch notes for the December 4 update.

As announced previously, this patch will increase the maximum stash storage to 600 pounds, and it could expand further down the road, Bethesda said. The update also introduces stability improvements to the Fallout 76 client and servers, which in turn should lead to a better experience overall.

In terms of balance changes, the Fallout 76 patch makes bosses drop 2-4 items per boss (depending on difficulty and level), while weapon damage has been increased by 20 percent "across the board," so it sounds like you'll feel more powerful right away with this update.

As for bug fixes, on console Bethesda has fixed an issue that could lead to an infinite loading screen when players signed out of their console while playing the game. And on Xbox One specifically, the patch addresses a crash scenario for a specific situation related to team invites. There are UI, Survival, and Perk changes, too, included in this update. You can see the full patch notes here, as posted by Bethesda on their website.

Fallout 76 launched in mid-November, and while it might not have been a hit with critics, the game quickly reached "millions" of players. The game is underperforming GameStop's expectations, but that doesn't necessarily mean the game is doing badly.

The December 4 update for Fallout 76 won't be the last, as Bethesda is planning another one for December 11, while the developer overall plans to support the game for years to come.

Mildly hyped about Dragon Age stuff, but not too optimistic after Inquisition. I feel they haven't been able to recreate the charm of Origins with any of the later games.
