The Tegra Zone is set to get one more amazing game next month, with the minimalist strategy game Auralux coming down the pipe. Auralux, which promises to have "every feature and more from the renowned PC game," combines the minimalist, otherworldly environment/music of Osmos with the real-time galactic strategy of Galcon for what looks to be a stunning experience.

Describing itself as "an abstract, essentialized, and simplified real-time strategy game," Auralux gives players individual units, each of which can only carry out one type of command.

Sony Releases Beta ICS ROM For Unlockable Xperia Play Models

In a time when many users are wondering if an Android 4.0 update will ever come to their devices, it was a pleasant surprise that Sony was open enough to release a beta version of ICS for some of their devices - the Xperia Arc S, Neo V, and Ray. But they didn't stop there, as they have, "upon request," released a beta ICS ROM for the Xperia Play (or as you may know it, the PlayStation Phone).

Amazon Appstore Updated To v2.3 - The 20MB 3G/4G Download Limit Finally Goes Up To 50MB, Blocking Notifications Actually Works, And More

The Amazon Appstore Android app was just updated to version 2.3, which finally raised the maximum application size that can be downloaded over a mobile connection from 20MB to 50MB - something we've been asking the company nonstop for over a year. I understand why they set the default to 20MB, but enforcing a max, especially on 4G (Sprint has unlimited 4G, for example) didn't make sense. After all, it's my data, I should be the one to decide how to use it.

Details About The Upcoming LG Optimus Elite Leak - It's The Lowest Of The Low End... But Has NFC

Images and details about the upcoming LG Optimus Elite for Sprint and its prepaid subsidiary Virgin Mobile have made their way to the internet, and the only thing I can say about it is this is one confused device, and it couldn't be further from 'elite'.

While this device may not look half bad, under the hood it's the most underwhelming thing that we've seen in many months - save for one unexpected feature on a device like this.

Hulu Plus Update Finally Brings Tablet-Optimized UI To Select Devices

If you're at all into TV, you've heard of Hulu. Chances are, you're watching something on Hulu right now on your PC, phone, XBOX360, Wii, Roku, PS3, iPad, 3DS, or any of the other supported devices. The list is pretty long, but until today it had one glaring omission - Android tablets. Sure, some tablets, like the Kindle Fire, HTC Flyer, or the Vizio VTAB, were already supported, but they were running Gingerbread and didn't have a proper tablet UI.

For Developers: Android Developer Console Can Now Be Shared Between Multiple Team Members

Android developer console, which Android devs use to publish and manage applications, now supports multiple users without having to share a single account (and, more importantly, its password).

This may not be a big deal to one-person teams, but for larger companies it's pure gold. The addition of these user accounts also carries the benefit of fine-grained controls over permissions. Currently the only togglable permission is access to financial reports, but the Android team promised to roll out more in the future.

If you're waiting for the One S to hit T-Mobile, a new piece of information just hit the scene that may be of interest to you. This particular piece of information clearly shows the release date for the device: April 22.

You know the drill with this sort of thing, though: this is just a rumor and it could change at a moments notice. With that said, this leak appears to be pretty official, so it looks like T-Mo is pretty dang close to getting its first HTC device with ICS (if the Amaze or Sensation updates don't roll out first, that is).
