CD Projekt released the PS4 Pro update for The Witcher 3 this morning, according to various user reports online. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Although the announcement talks of "improved stability", that just might be referring to the improved resolution.

Under its code name Spartan, Microsoft Edge was first released to the public as part of a Windows 10 Technical Preview build in March 2015, and it was given its official name in late April 2015.

They will be available in three colours and have a new design. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. That's not to say that it won't be a heck of a phone, it just isn't the flagship of the two and that's OK. It's good to see that Google opted for the fastest processor among Android devices (but not the fastest mobile processor on the planet). Going by the aesthetics, the Pixel 2 XL is going to be a hard sell against the high-end Galaxy line-up.

Although they will connect wirelessly, the company's Pixel Buds will come with a short cord so you can drape them around your neck.

Google Assistant is also built in, much like Siri in the Apple HomePad and Alexa in Amazon's Echo speakers . However, it may be possible some features will be curtailed to achieve this. Something both Apple and Google are focusing on this year is AR. Must to Google and HTC's chagrin, an apparent shipping issue has left the handset with the Snapdragon 835 - it's still a premium chip, but it's the same one virtually every flagship has offered in the past year.
