Eidos plans more Hitman titles, and working on new Tomb Raider

Eidos announced plans to acquire Hitman developer IO Interactive late last week and plans to launch the next Hitman title in late autumn in the US. The publisher also commented on a new Tomb Raider game, telling gamesindustry.biz that "the fundamental technology is already complete and the character is up and running in the environment with new moves and new control systems."

With Crystal Dynamics taking the helm, Eidos is hoping to resuscitate the Tomb Raider series, which has been beaten to death with uninspiring sequels and equally lackluster movies. The poor performance of Lara Croft: Angel of Darkness led to Core Design losing the license, as well as the departure of studio head Jeremy Heath-Smith from the company and Eidos' board.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
