‘PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ is getting a mobile port in China

It was only about a week ago when Tencent announced that it’s bringing a localized version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to China, and earlier today, the tech giant added that it’s also porting the PC game to mobile platforms — an interesting move given that there are already several Chinese mobile clones of PUBG (even smartphone maker Xiaomi has one). While it’s hard to imagine how one could enjoy a chicken dinner on much smaller screens and sans keyboard or mouse, Tencent said together with PUBG Corp, they will ensure that this authentic mobile port of PUBG will remain faithful to its PC counterpart in terms of gameplay method, core elements and compliance with local content regulations.

Tencent didn’t say when PUBG for mobile will be ready. All we know for now is that development is making “very good progress” and that, surprise, surprise, China will get first dibs. There’s also no word on whether the port will eventually make it to other markets around the world, but it’d be silly for Tencent and PUBG Corp not to do so: with the PC version having already shipped over 21 million copies so far, its mobile port can potentially come close to that figure, depending on how good the modification is. It’ll also be interesting to see how this figure compares to that of the upcoming Xbox One version, especially given that the latter likely won’t be released in China any time soon, if ever.

Oculus Rift bundle discounted to $379 until December 20th

After permanently slashing the Rift and Touch combo price to $399/£399, Oculus is at it again. With Christmas fast approaching, the VR headset bundle is now the cheapest it's been since Black Friday, at $379/£369. (Heads up that Amazon UK is still honoring the £349 Black Friday price for now, though.) The price cut means the device is fast approaching the more affordable Windows Mixed Reality gear on the market. But, the limited time deal is only up until 11.59PM (PT) on December 20th, so you'll have to be quick. You can grab the kit online via Oculus' website and in select stores, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Newegg.

With new games and apps making it onto the Oculus Store everyday, you won't be at a loss for entertainment come Christmas. Aside from the fresh beta release of the Rift Core 2.0 VR interface, Arktika.1 brought some motion-controlled action (from the makers of the Metro series) to the device in October. A companion experience for Pixar's latest smash, Coco, also arrived around the same time. And, you'd be silly to miss out on rhythmic shooter Rez Infinite, which we found to be a transcendental VR journey.
