Minecraft hits the Nintendo Switch
Minecraft is coming to Nintendo’s recently launched Switch handheld gaming system. It is first rolling out on the Nintendo eShop in North America, before following in Europe, Japan and Africa.
Nintendo Switch Edition comes with fun features of other console versions of Minecraft, including multiplayer mini games, Battle and Tumble. But of course, being for the versatile Switch, this version lets you play with friends in a variety of ways: get together online for some eight-player action, eight-player local play (if everyone has a Switch) or squeeze four of you onto a couch to play split-screen in front of the TV on a lone console. Some other blighted family member hogging the TV? Flip out the Switch’s kickstand and play in tabletop mode. That supports four-player split-screen, too, with players wielding either Joy-Cons or the Pro Controller.
LG Q7 smartphone
The recently announced LG Q7 smartphone offers premium features typically found in more expensive flagship smartphones, but at a more affordable price.
It builds on the previous models’ foundation, with even more high-end features like portrait mode, DTS:X Virtual Surround Sound, water and dust resistance and a fingerprint sensor on the back for added security as well as upgraded 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM which is also expandable.
The LG Q7 also features a 2.5D Arc Glass design with rounded-edges that makes the device comfortable to hold and operate with one hand. Its smart rear key fingerprint sensor is located below the camera lens to allow users to unlock the phone easily and it also doubles as the camera shutter button or to take screenshots and control the notification bar.
The LG Q7 will be available for R5 999 on pre-paid and from R349 on contract from Vodacom and Cell C.
