Attendees at Gamescon in Cologne, Germany were treated to a close-up look at the new Acer Predator G6 today. The gaming desktop brings new hardware to Acer’s Predator G series, including an Intel Core i7-6700K processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card.

At long last, the new PlayStation 3 is a reality. At a press event today in Germany, Sony announced that it would be shipping a slimmer, sexier PS3 console at the beginning of next month, and while it wouldn't gain any functionality from the 80GB PS3 that we've come to know and love, it wouldn't lose anything either.
