Acer Predator Triton 700: How much and where to buy

Published

on

While it’s been a while since its announcement, the Predator Triton 700 is finally rolling out globally — the latest lucky country being the Philippines.

The original starting price of the Triton 700 is set at US$ 2,999, but like all international products, pricing varies depending on your region.

For the Philippines, there’ll be two models available for the gaming laptop, which differ primarily in memory, storage, and graphics configurations.

For PhP 134,999, you get this setup: Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, and GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. It also comes with a Predator Cestus 500 mouse and PhP 3,000 worth of Steam credits.

If you feel like spending more, the PhP 229,999 variant comes with more RAM at 32GB, more storage at 1TB using an additional SSD, and a much faster GTX 1080 8GB. The Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor remains the same, but you get NVIDIA’s G-Sync for the 15.6-inch 1080p display. There are also Predator Galea 500 headphones, a Predator Cestus 500 mouse, and PhP 5,000 worth of Steam credits awaiting interested buyers.

That last model is the one we recently reviewed, and it’s a heck of a beast on top of the equally monstrous price.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is getting a PC port

Coming later this fall

Published

on

After the first one got a much-awaited port, it was only a matter of time before a second webslinger pops up on PC. Enjoying a much shorter lead time than the first game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is officially getting a PC port later this year.

Earlier this year, Sony released the official port for the first game, Marvel’s Spider-Man, featuring Peter Parker as the titular superhero. At the time, Insomniac and Nixxes Software (the studio behind the port) only had perfunctory plans to bring Miles Morales along for the PC ride.

In practically no time at all, Sony has announced the official coming of the second game through its own teaser trailer. Though the trailer does not end with a release date, it will launch sometime in the fall of this year.

In terms of ports, Sony has found massive success in bringing its formerly exclusive games to more markets. Now, PC players can finally get access to critically acclaimed title from consoles. In Spider-Man’s case, various modders have already created a thriving community for the first game. One such segment involves replacing Peter’s model with other characters like Stan Lee.

Will Miles Morales get the same hype and fanfare? Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales continues the story started by Peter Parker. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Miles sets off on his own adventure with electrifying powers.

If you can’t wait for the PC port, the game is still available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Cyberpunk 2077 soars to 1M daily players after Edgerunners

The RPG gets a major milestone

Published

Cyberpunk Edgerunners

Following the release of its much-anticipated Edgerunners update and Netflix anime, Cyberpunk 2077 has reached a major milestone.

CD Projekt Red’s single-player, open-world sci-fi RPG has reached one million daily players (new and returning) ever since the patch was made available earlier in the month.

The Netflix anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners also debuted last September 13, further elevating the game’s popularity to new heights, so much so that is has become a Steam top seller yet again.

This achievement makes up for the game’s disastrous release in late 2020, when technical issues, particularly bugs, hounded its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.

Enhanced for Next-Gen consoles

The Edgerunners update enhanced the game for Next-Gen consoles. It also gave players an opportunity to access in-game goodies inspired by the anime series such as new wardrobe and fresh weapons, as well as a host of new features and content to dig into.

Set in the futuristic Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 revolves around its protagonist V, a mercenary outlaw who needs to secure a one-of-a-kind implant — the Relic — which is the key to immortality.

In exploring the vast city controlled by corporations and highlighted by gang wars, players must customize their character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle to overcome every obstacle they encounter.
