Apple is releasing two new phones this fall; they are releasing the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5C is the lower end model and it is replacing the iPhone 5. It uses a plastic casing and comes in multiple colors. The iPhone 5C comes in five different colors; they are white, pink, yellow, blue, and green. I think it’s really cool that Apple is letting you choose between several different colors. This is something that they should have considered a few years ago. I really like how the blue model looks. The iPhone 5C is coming out on September 20, 2013. There is a 16gb version for $99 and a 32gb version for $199. What color iPhone do you think looks the best?
Microsoft revealed that the Xbox One will come out on November 22, 2013. It comes out seven days after the PS4 comes out. I don’t think this puts Microsoft at a disadvantage. The Xbox One is a really powerful system. It has an 8-core x86 processor, 8GB of ram, a 500GB hard drive and a blue ray player. It is also said to be an all around media player with a variety of applications such as Skype. Some of the games that are coming out on the Xbox One include Forza 5, Titanfall, Halo, Call of Duty Ghosts, Deadrising 3 and Destiny. The PS4 and Xbox One are both very powerful systems. However, they lack a strong lineup of exclusives; it will be interesting to see how both consoles do in the long run. Are you going to pick up an Xbox One on day one?

This week Nintendo Announced a new Nintendo DS system and they announced a Wii U price cut. The new Nintendo DS is called the Nintendo 2DS and it is coming out on October 12, 2013. The system is going to cost $129.99. It is supposed to be for the younger audience because it doesn’t have 3d capabilities. However, it can still play all the Nintendo 3DS games. It also has a new design; the new Nintendo 2DS is a slab that doesn’t open or close. I don’t care for the design at all. It looks really uncomfortable to hold and it doesn’t seem very portable. The original Nintendo DS was a lot more portable, you could close it up and put it in your pocket. What do you think of the new Nintendo 2DS?
The Wii U is also getting a significant price cut. The Wii U Deluxe model is getting a fifty dollar price cut. On September 20, 2013 the Wii U Deluxe model will cost $299.99. This is a step in the right direction for Nintendo and the Wii U. I think the Wii U is a great console, however the lack of games and the high price have been a struggle. Nintendo also announced the Wind Waker HD bundle. It will retail at $299.99 and it will include the new Wind Waker game. Will you be picking up a Wii U this fall? If I didn’t already have one I might consider purchasing this bundle.
