Republic of Gamers (ROG) releases the ultimate 27-inch WQHD gaming monitor with exclusive gaming features, design touches, and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology
ASUS today at CES announced a new monitor that's 27 inches of 2560x1440 and 120Hz goodness, plus it comes with the new NVIDIA G-Sync technology built in. This is now the ultimate PC gaming monitor, but it comes with a premium price too... $800
This sounds great, but I would like to see a 24 inch version as 27 is just a tad too big for my desk, especially with multiple monitors. Of course, I'd like to see it come down in price too, but I'm sure that will happen with time.
The full release:
Las Vegas, USA (6th January, 2014) — ASUS today announced the ROG Swift PG278Q 27-inch gaming monitor. The Swift PG278Q features a WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution, fast 120+ Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and a full range of ergonomic adjustments. It also features ASUS GamePlus and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technologies that are designed to deliver the ultimate gaming experience.
Experience Immersive Gaming and Outstanding Visuals
Say goodbye to motion blur and lag with 120+ Hz refresh rate and 1ms response times for a competitive advantage in all your games, thanks to smoother gameplay and on-screen responsiveness. The ROG Swift PG278Q also features GamePlus, an exclusive ASUS feature.
GamePlus is an OSD overlay that enables crosshair and timer functions to be displayed on the monitor. Gamers can select from four different crosshair types to suit the gaming environment, while the timer function allows players to track elapsed time in real-time strategy games. These tools allow gamers to practice and improve their gaming skills.
The ROG Swift PG278Q provides an array of options that include DisplayPort 1.2 for native WQHD output, dual USB 3.0 ports, VESA wall mount capability and a versatile stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment for an ideal viewing position while playing the latest game titles.
The smart cable management feature rids your desktop of tangled wires, while the super narrow 6mm bezel ensures the ROG Swift PG278Q is an ideal choice for seamless multi-display gaming setups. Another nod to gamers and improving the user experience is a 5-way joystick that allows the user to easily navigate the OSD and make quick monitor adjustments.
The World’s First and Fastest WQHD Monitor powered by NVIDIA G-SYNC™
The ROG Swift PG278Q is also the world’s first WQHD monitor powered by NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology. NVIDIA® G-SYNC™, a breakthrough in display technology, synchronizes the display’s refresh rates to the GPU. The ROG Swift PG278Q eliminates screen tearing, minimizes stutter and input lag to deliver the smoothest gaming experience possible. With G-SYNC™ technology objects look sharper and more vibrant, while gameplay is more fluid and responsive.

PC in April, Next-Gen in June.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be hitting your PC on April 4, 2014. It is tentatively slated to come to a PS4/XB1 near you in June 2014.
Bethesda recently released a video about character progression which looked pretty cool. The game is currently in beta, but Jimmys can't talk about that.
Here's another trailer that shows... well, I'm not sure what honestly, but it's got the release dates at the end and that's all I cared about. Enjoy.

A weird split in release dates is about to complicate the tournament scene. What is this shit, Capcom?
EVO 2014 will be played July 11-13 in Las Vegas. Allegedly to feature Ultra Street Fighter IV as one of the top games... well Capcom is cutting it close saying now that USF4 will be available as a DLC upgrade to AE2012 only in early June and if you want the full-on disk version you're gonna have to wait until August. (Also, if you're on PC, you have to wait too).
"Right now, we are hard at work to bring the game to all of our fans as soon as possible, and want to ensure there is enough time that players can practice to compete at Evolution 2014. As such, the digital upgrade will be available in early June for $14.99 (€14.99) on PS3 and Xbox 360. Following shortly after in August, is the digital upgrade for PC at $14.99 (€14.99), as well as the PS3 and Xbox360 full digital bundle and retail versions, which include all previously-released costumes for $39.99 (€39.99). Since our PC fans have to wait longer for the content, we have a special deal where they can get the full digital bundle including all of the previously-released costumes for only $29.99 (€29.99), also in August."
Well this is some bullshit. Now we need the DLC on each of our stations or just tell everybody "Sorry, wait until August when the disk version comes out". Putting the DLC on every station is a pain in the ass and was the reason the full retail version featuring all the costumes on a disk got such big applause when announced. Now MR Wizard is going to have to install DLC on every box before EVO, not to mention the game not releasing until only a few weeks before EVO? Is this shit going to fly? Why can't they just print the disks? What's the hold up? Get Ono-san off of that stupid "Deep Down" PS4 bullshit and get him back over here to fix this mess!
