5) OUYA will come to more devices

OUYA CEO Julie Uhrman announced earlier this week that the storefront, called Discover, will be available to several Android devices. The decision to open it up to more devices than the console itself is inspired by Amazon’s Kindle setup, where you have the Kindle devices, but you can access the books from almost any smart device.

They will put certain hardware requirements on Discover to ensure the customer can play all games offered.

4) Archie is back

The popular 1940’s American Classic comic Archie will be back sometime next year. This is thanks to the star and creator of Girls, Lena Dunham, who has been approved to write a new four-part story about Archie Andrews.
Dunham has been a long-time fan of the series and was sent a box full of Archie comics by the publishers for her research. Within a week she had read them all and pitched a story to the publishers, who approved it right away.

Dunham’s Archie stories will be released sometime in 2015.

3) Power Suit available soon

Italian robotics company Percro has engineered the first publicly available and cost efficient robotic power suit, or exo skeleton. The Full Body Extender makes the wearer capable of lifting up to 110 pounds in each hand with the arm fully extended and is designed to help in disaster zones. By tracking the wearer’s movements in real time, the suit is capable of functioning just like your own arms.

2) Sin City is back

Popular neo-noir thriller Sin City will get a sequel. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For was announced last week. It will star, among others, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Clive Owen as well as having a reappearance of Mickey Rourke as Marv.
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will come to the big screens in late August this year.

1) U2 album and tour delayed

Irish rockers U2 had their latest release, No Line on the Horizon, in 2009, so their latest work has been much anticipated. Many thought it would be released late last fall, others that it was coming this spring. Front man Bono has finally given a rough estimate of when it will be released; Summer of 2015.
The reasons for all delays have been the band’s attention to details. They do not wish to release it, or even name it, until they are 100% satisfied with the result.
Together with the release, there will be a world tour.
