With the release of the Series 3, Apple released a set of new Nylon/Velcro Sport Loops which are the most comfortable Apple Watch bands released to date. Unfortunately, these new Sport Loops are only bundled in with the Cellular Apple watch so that means if you get a normal Series 3, Series 2, or Series 1 you will have to shell out a little over $50 for one band which is insane.

I’d been waiting for a fake/copy to pop up on Amazon and it finally did! It’s called the Qifit New Nylon Sport Loop with Hook and Loop Fastener and it comes in all of Apple’s original colors which I couldn’t believe so I purchased a pink and a black one to see how close they come to Apple’s version. Basically, it’s the exact same thing but for $16. The colors are exactly the same but more importantly, the way the velcro is laid out and how the band feels is also exactly the same! This is the first band I’ve bought on Amazon that actually looks like an Apple product without branding.

If you have been wanting a sport loop then you can confidently buy these knowing you are getting the same thing as Apple but without the hefty price tag. It’s ideal for working out and sleeping but I bought mine mainly for sleeping since it makes the watch so much more comfortable than any other band. You can get one here on Amazon. Just as a tip, the black one is like the one I am wearing in the picture and isn’t completely black (just how Apple’s is), I believe dark olive is more of a darker gray/black.
Along with the PS Vita TV, Sony also announced a new PS Vita handheld console which will come is six colors (white, pale blue, lime green, prink, grey and black). The device will also sport a built in 1GB memory card and one hour longer of battery life. The screen will now be a five inch LCD as opposed to the OLED screen in the current model, we’ll see how that works out. Sony also decided to get rid of their proprietary charging port and instead put a Micro-USB charging port. Notably, the device is 20 percent lighter and 15 percent thinner than the current model and, according to Sony, has improved ergonomics.
The new Vita will be out on October 10th in Japan for $190 US Dollars ($10 cheaper than the current model, which was recently reduced to $200), no word yet on when it is coming to the states but I am guessing sometime next year since Japan won’t get the PS4 until the 22nd of February. Check out the video below of the new PS Vita…
RockstarGames has posted video demonstrating Grand Theft Auto Online. Players will get Grand Theft Auto Online free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V. GTAO will launch on October 1st, just a few weeks after the release of Grand Theft Auto 5. Check out the video below.
Grand Theft Auto 5 will be launching on September 17th for Xbox 360 and PS3, there’s no word yet on whether or not it will come to PC, Xbox One, or PS4. There are tons of things to do in the open world and a number of different ways to approach heists. I’ve never been a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series but this game sure does look promising. For now, enjoy the video below of some Grand Theft Auto 5 gameplay.
At today’s Sony Playstation Conference they announced the PlayStation 4 along with a new DualShock controller. The DualShock 4 was the only hardware shown today by Sony and has the same general design as its predecessors. The controller’s most noticeable design change is the touchpad in the middle but it also sports a share button, headphone jack, and a light bar which will be used to identify players by color coding and the PlayStation camera will be able to track it for more advanced motion controls.
PlayStation has uploaded a teaser of an important event happening next month in New York City. The event could be about anything but most likely this is where the PlayStation 4 will be announced and shown off. Save the date and check out the teaser below!
Last night at Sony’s E3 Press Conference Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed III Liberation which is a new chapter in the Assassin’s Creed saga and was designed exclusively for the PlayStationVita.

For those that have been waiting for a white PS Vita, Sony is launching a special bundle alongside the game featuring a brand-new “crystal white” PS Vita which includes a 4GB SD card and the new game. Check out the reveal trailer after the break.
I’ve spent over 2 weeks with the Playstation Vita and finally felt it was time for a review. I had a great time with the PS Vita and it pretty much met my expectations. Some Vita apps are pretty much useless but gaming was really amazing. Will you be getting the Vita? Check out our full video review of the Vita after the break.
If your new PS Vita has stopped responding or wont turn on then you might have the “Blue Light of Death”. Luckily there is a fix but before doing this make sure your PS Vita didn’t just run out of battery.
First thing your going to want to do is hold down your power button for about 30 seconds until you see the following screen:
-First, try restarting your PS Vita system and that should (most of the time) fix your problem.
-If that did not change anything then try Rebuilding the Database, this normally fixes a lot of problems.
-If that still did not work then you could try updating but I doubt that would work. As a last resort you could wipe your PS Vita by restoring it which would wipe your systems memory but it’s much better than formatting your memory card since you would loose all game saves and downloads.
-If nothing worked by now then…you are doomed. You should try getting an exchange from where you purchased it or sell it on Ebay. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
