Bringing together leading titles from across the industry, we hear first hand from those who have reviewed – and rated – the very latest games and products on the market.
In news this week mystery and rumour surrounded Sony released new footage of PS5 game Abandoned – but we’re still waiting for the app to update.
In tech, Samsung unveiled not one, but two foldable phones. In gaming, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s Eivor followed Lionel Messi to Paris and Sonic announced a star studded line up for the movie sequel.
In Tech, this week Samsung unveiled its latest foldable phones.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 are on their way very soon – here is TechRadar’s US editor-in-chief Matt Swider giving his first impressions.
On the Galaxy Z Fold 3 they said: “The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 lays the bait for people who normally consider themselves early adopters but held out on last year’s Fold 2.
“It has awaited upgrades like S Pen support, greater durability and water-resistance in an otherwise familiar-looking smartphone with mostly unchanged cameras.
“It’s still expensive, but starts at a slightly lower price than its predecessors, meaning those early adopters on the sidelines may finally be tempted to join the foldable phone future.”
And on the Z Flip 3, Tom Bedford from TechRadar wrote: “The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is probably the best clamshell foldable phone out there right now – not that that says much with the limited competition – though it doesn’t present any major changes to its predecessor.
“It has a sturdy design and good-looking screen, though the cameras aren’t great and the battery is fairly small.
“Some slight tweaks and a slightly lower price might win over those who were on the fence about such phones before.”
And finally, this week saw Idris Elba cast as Knuckles in the next Sonic the Hedgehog movie.
We know these lot are already coming back to reprise their roles alongside Idris but what about some of Sonic’s more obscure friends?
First up we’re casting Tilda Swinton as Cream the Rabbit, Robert Pattinson is brought in as Shadow the Hedgehog, Benedict Cucumberbatch is Black Doom and Mickey Rourke completes the list as E-102 Gamma, the robot who turns out to be a bird.
New episodes of Totally Rated will roll out every week.
