    Two Michael Jordan-Designed AJ1s Are Being Raffled Off For Charity

    19.05.02 / 362 view

    Out of every sneaker designed for Michael Jordan, the Air Jordan 1 may be the most ubiquitous. Boasting a versatile shape and appeal for both on- and off-court styling, the sneaker has remained one of the most popular Jordan Brand silhouettes since its inception. Never has Michael Jordan put his own spin on the style, however, which changes with a pair of extremely limited charitable silhouettes debuting for charity.

    Offered as part of a raffle benefitting the Charlotte Hornets Foundation, two monochrome Air Jordan 1s were designed by Jordan himself, offered in an exclusive edition of 300 total pairs. Offered in black or white, the premium shoes both sport white rubber midsoles, with tonal quilted uppers emphasizing the grain leather that also informs the Swoosh and ankle guard.

    While the black sneaker is one shade, the white model offers contrasting black accents on the ankle and shaft to break-up the otherwise all-white shoe. An All-Star-shaped hangtag graces each shoe, with a honeycomb pattern and silhouetted player adding visual flair. Stylized branding on the tongue tag completes the exclusive sneaker.

    Scope out the sneakers and place a bid on the Charlotte Hornets Foundation’s site before the bidding ends on May 23. Check out the promotional clips below.

    Elsewhere, Travis Scott‘s highly-anticipated Air Jordan 1 received complete release information.

    애플이 무선충전, “시리야” 기능을 추가한 에어팟 2세대를 선보인 데 이어, 올해 안으로 3세대 모델 2가지를 출시할 가능성이 제기됐다.

    먼저 여러 외신들의 보도를 종합해보면, 3세대에는 노이즈 캔슬링 기능이 탑재될 전망이다. 이 기능은 2세대에 적용될 것으로 알려졌지만 결과적으로 제외된 바 있다. ‘애플 소식통’으로 불리는 TF 인터내셔널증권의 애널리스트 밍치궈는 애플이 올해 2개의 새 에어팟을 출시할 것이라고 밝혔다. 이는 2019년 4분기에 출시될 예정으로, 이 중 하나는 디자인과 설계에 변화가 있어 이전보다 높은 가격대로 책정될 것이라고 예측했다. 또 다른 모델에는 배터리 개선과 같은 간단한 업데이트가 적용될 것이라고 말했다. 그는 디자인, 기능 등 새 에어팟으로 만나볼 수 있는 기능에 대해서 세부적으로 밝히지는 않았다.

    19.05.02 / 269 view

    With Avengers: Endgame‘s recent box-office smashing arrival, Marvel Studios‘ decade long run of 22 films has finally come to its epic conclusion.

    While July’s Spider-Man: Far From Home has been confirmed to finish off Phase Three, many fans have begun panicking about when they can expect the next Marvel hit to appear. Although the big players over at Marvel Studios have decided to remain quite mum about what’s to come until after Far From Home debuts, we’ve gathered up information on what projects you can look forward to from the franchise including its Disney+ shows.

    Numerous projects for Marvel‘s Phase Four are currently in development such as sequels to the Guardians Of The Galaxy, Doctor Strange and Black Panther along with a Black Widowspin-off. No release date has been officially announced or dated by Marvel Studios for any of these films, but it looks as though the first movie of Phase Four will drop on May 1, 2020. The fourth chapter will also take on a different feel than its predecessors, considering new heroes are set to make their debut including The Eternals, Shang-Chi, Kate Bishop and the potential rise of the Young Avengers with the premiere of Disney’s streaming service.

    Capcom has finally announced Devil May Cry 5, the long awaited sequel to Devil May Cry 4, which was released over 10 years ago.

    Devil May Cry 5 is a true follow-up to Devil May Cry 4, bringing back the original characters and storylines from the 2010 title (instead of the spin-off/reboot DmC: Devil May Cry that was released back in 2013). Longtime series director Hideaki Itsuno is returning to helm the new title as well. Both Nero and Dante — the demon hunting family who have featured as the protagonists of earlier games in the series — will be featured in Devil May Cry 5 as well.

    Devil May Cry 5 is set to release for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in spring 2019.

    Correction: Nero and Dante are apparently uncle and nephew, not twins, as this article originally stated. Virgil, who is Dante’s twin brother, does not appear in the trailer.

  • Sony Is in Talks to Release a PlayStation Classic Console Packed With Retro Titles

    Sony Is in Talks to Release a PlayStation Classic Console Packed With Retro Titles

    18.05.30 / 257 view

    Sony appears willing to rip a page from Nintendo’s playbook, as the company internally discusses a potential PlayStation Classic release. Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO John Kodera spoke earlier with Mantan Web (translated by ComicBook), paying reverence to Nintendo and its strategy of rereleasing both its SNES Classic and NES Classic consoles to much success. With that said, the team at Sony continue to mull over the possibility of unveiling a Play Station 1 packed with retro titles.

    It is important to note that Sony’s road to delivering its nostalgic system could be littered with roadblocks, relying much more heavily on third-party support when compared to its industry rivals. For instance, a large portion of early PS1 games were, or eventually became, third-party assets, which could very well slow down the process of the gaming system reaching the consumer market.

    When asked to comment on the potential move, Kodera had the following to say:

    “Our company is always digging up past assets.”

    “I think there are various ways to do (a classic console). There have been discussions happening (within the company) on what kind of ways are there.”

    Speaking of old-school consoles, Nintendo filed a trademark application for its N64 Classic system.
