Before wrapping up its Gather Round event, Apple revealed its new entry-level iPhone X model,
the iPhone XR. It features a 6.1-inch LCD screen in lieu of OLED,
however it still retains an edge-to-edge display that Apple has dubbed Liquid Retina.
It will use a new aerospace-grade aluminum and glass casing rather than the stainless steel edges found on other X models.
The iPhone XR will also feature a new haptic touch feature for pressing on the home screen to instantly launch the camera or flashlight.
It possesses a 12MP with OIS wide-angle camera and the same photo capturing technologies as
iPhone Xs and Xs Max, as it running on the same A12 bionic chip. Additionally,
the Photos app can edit picture depth like its beefier counterparts, while housing an improved battery that provides an hour and
a half more life than the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus.
The iPhone XR comes in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT)RED.
It will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB starting at $740 USD.
The XR can be preordered starting October 19, while arriving at stores on October 26....

Capcom has finally announced Devil May Cry 5, the long awaited sequel to Devil May Cry 4, which was released over 10 years ago.
Devil May Cry 5 is a true follow-up to Devil May Cry 4, bringing back the original characters and storylines from the 2010 title (instead of the spin-off/reboot DmC: Devil May Cry that was released back in 2013). Longtime series director Hideaki Itsuno is returning to helm the new title as well. Both Nero and Dante — the demon hunting family who have featured as the protagonists of earlier games in the series — will be featured in Devil May Cry 5 as well.
Devil May Cry 5 is set to release for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in spring 2019.
Correction: Nero and Dante are apparently uncle and nephew, not twins, as this article originally stated. Virgil, who is Dante’s twin brother, does not appear in the trailer.

Sony appears willing to rip a page from Nintendo’s playbook, as the company internally discusses a potential PlayStation Classic release. Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO John Kodera spoke earlier with Mantan Web (translated by ComicBook), paying reverence to Nintendo and its strategy of rereleasing both its SNES Classic and NES Classic consoles to much success. With that said, the team at Sony continue to mull over the possibility of unveiling a Play Station 1 packed with retro titles.
It is important to note that Sony’s road to delivering its nostalgic system could be littered with roadblocks, relying much more heavily on third-party support when compared to its industry rivals. For instance, a large portion of early PS1 games were, or eventually became, third-party assets, which could very well slow down the process of the gaming system reaching the consumer market.
When asked to comment on the potential move, Kodera had the following to say:
“Our company is always digging up past assets.”
“I think there are various ways to do (a classic console). There have been discussions happening (within the company) on what kind of ways are there.”
Speaking of old-school consoles, Nintendo filed a trademark application for its N64 Classic system....
