  • Microsoft Pushing for More Xbox One Game Discounts

    xbox one discounts christmasThe months leading up to the Holiday season are always pretty hectic, but for major tech manufacturers like Microsoft, things get incredibly crazy. With the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 currently fighting for the top spot, Microsoft had a lot to do to manage to get an upper hand on Sony's new console.

    One way Xbox managed to do this was by pushing for more deals and better bargains, and over the black Friday weekend, Microsoft managed to rake in a huge amount of sales thanks to their discounts around the globe, and this actually helped them to secure the most sold console units for that month.

    It isn't going to stop at black Friday either - Microsoft have learned that good deals make sales, and in tune with this they have regularly been putting up discounts on their consoles, and most recently, their first party titles, and some selected third party games as well.

    Firstly, digital copies of both Destiny and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare have been put up for just $19.99, half of their standard retail price. Secondly, the above games can also be purchased as a physical copy for $29.99.

    Halo The Master Chief Collection has been dropped to $45, and both Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive now have digital copies going for $35. These discounts are not quite like the bargains available for both Destiny and Call of Duty, but still very generous nonetheless.

  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster In the Works

    final fantasy x HD ps4When it comes to any news about Final Fantasy, there are often a lot of mixed feelings. Whilst there are certain games in the franchise that many gamers have come to despite, there are also timeless classics that everybody adores, and one such game is going to be getting a new HD treatment in anticipation for a PlayStation 4 launch.

    The game in question is Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD, and whilst this game has already had an HD remaster for the PS Vita and the PlayStation 3, it will be the first time this game has been ported over to the newest Sony console.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will be launched for the PlayStation 4 and it will be made available both from the PlayStation network and from within select brick and mortar retail stores early next year.

    It is expected that the new HD remaster won't have many improvements over the previously released PS3 and PS Vita versions, although there may be some unexpected surprises. We will have to wait for the launch to see what Square Enix have planned for the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X/X-2.

    Whilst many PS4 owners have been happy about the announcement of this particular remaster, Square Enix also announced that they have plans to bring Final Fantasy VII to the PlayStation 4 as well, and as expected, not so many players were happy about this one.

    Many players have stated that they would much prefer to see a remake of Final Fantasy VI instead of VII - what are your thoughts on this?

  • GTA V Heists DLC Finally Revealed ... Hopefully

    GTA V Heists DLCI can't be sure whether this is a practical joke by Rockstar, or someone at their office decided to start April fools a whole four months early, but according to reports, Rockstar are gearing up to release their patch notes for a new update this month, and the exciting part is that they will contain the long awaited GTA Online heist missions.

    Rockstar did of course mentioned fairly recently that the first update to come after the release of the new console ports would include the new GTA heists, but after waiting so long, it's almost quite hard to believe.

    However, in the new patch notes for an update planned for December 23rd, it looks as if heists will be making their way to GTA Online, alongside other game changes. Unfortunately, this information only comes from a 'tipster' from within the development team, so we can't promise that any of this information is true or not.

    Interestingly, Rockstar has tried to cover up any spread information of the new update leaks, so we won't be posting the full details, however a quick patch summary can be read below.

    Heist (Planning Board) layout update for both High-End apartment interiors. This will be available across all platforms.

    Brand new 'Heist' selection menu featuring it's own Social Club-based leaderboard and misc options showing the list of un-completed Heist missions). This will be available across all platforms.

    34 Texture Modifications to 4 different locations, this is in favour of added effect during Heist missions. This will be available across all platforms but the texture detail is improved on current-generation.

    6 Heist missions in 4 unique locations.

    5 Cops and Crooks missions in 4 unique locations.

    Improved anti-cheat methods. Some code for this is included in the DLC, but is not associated with the Heist feature itself.

    Three brand new vehicles. The names of these vehicles are still identified by their Dev tag and are not yet finalized but the approximate vehicle class is; Sports Classic and Sports.

    Brand new Apartment - CCTV function with two AI-characters in your apartment running them. This feature is available for current-generation only.

    Three Heist-themed clothing items - these items are still identified by their Dev tag but are the following types; Special Outfit (available from the counter).
    Two Cops and Crooks-themed masks. These mask items are available in current-generation only.

    BZ Gas will now be purchasable from Ammu-Nation but can only be used in Heist missions - you are responsible for stocking-up on these and if you run out, your team mates will need to complete that objective for you.

    5 new hairstyles - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    2 new contact lenses - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    Additional matchmaking for Heist missions between Crews - this is a feature implemented in 1.17 but will be activated in 1.19/1.05.

    A new phone contact named 'Jeff' will be available, offering a chance to resurrect a killed-off Crew member during your Heist operation. The voice of this contact or any other options associated are still unknown at this point.

    Last-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.

    Current-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission and have the ability to print those out in your Apartment and store in your documents, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.
    All players will have the ability to use their Heist planning board in order to select a location, chosen online-Crew members and their role and the length of time before the Heist request expires from their 'Email' app on their phone.

    4 new audio files, relating to the Heist missions. These are identified as an alarm bell, the sound of a vault opening, sirens and a background track.

  • Destiny's DLC The Dark Below Breaks Weekly’s and Heroics

    Destiny DLC The Dark BelowEver since the release of Destiny, Bungie have been filling the game with variations on different challenges each week. These weekly challenges are something that often keep players coming back for more, and these, alongside other timed challenges such as the heroic missions are the core of end-game gameplay.

    Unfortunately, the new Destiny DLC, the Dark Below, has caused some trouble with the way weekly's and heroics work, and many Destiny players have sparked outrage in the Destiny community.

    Currently, because of the way the Dark Below works, often the weekly missions and heroics are selected for the new DLC areas, which prevents any non-paying members from getting their hands on their weekly challenges.

    The only solution for players at this point in time is to purchase the $19.99 DLC, and without doing so weekly's will remain locked out for those players. Honestly, I don't see Bungie doing this purposely, and I'm sure it will be addressed shortly. Still, I do think it is a little unfair for those players that have supported the game since day one.

    I do hope that Bungie either add non-DLC weekly's and heroics to the game, or remove the DLC ones completely, because otherwise the new DLC is essentially locking out content from the game that was originally intended to be part of the original package.

    Many players have already expressed their criticism for Destiny's lack of content, so I can't see any of this going down too well across the internet. Do you think this is as big of a deal as some are making it out to be?

  • PS4 Anniversary Console Comes and Goes in the Blink of an Eye

    ps4 anniversary consoleIf you have been keeping your eyes on the newly announced PlayStation 4 anniversary console, then you will know that the product is pretty hard to come by. Whilst at first we thought that the console would go up for sale just like any other standard variant of the PS4, it seems that this is not the case.

    In fact, many gamers have complained at the difficulty of trying to grab one of the new anniversary PlayStation 4's. Whilst there are odd deals such as PlayStation stores giving away PS4s for just £19.99 in London, the console itself cannot be officially purchased online from any retail store, and whilst Sony did put up an unannounced purchase page for the anniversary PlayStation 4, within minutes that page came crashing down, and it seems as if all copies have now been sold.

    Let's admit it, the new PS4 anniversary console, does look really nice, and I'm sure a lot of gamers want to get a hold of it, as it's nostalgic design is a piece of many people's childhood.

    Sony have been pretty quiet about their plans for the PS4 console, but I do hope that it becomes more widely available, even if it is just for a short period of time.

    I already have a standard black PS4 console, but I wouldn't mind picking up the anniversary version if I could ever get my hands on one. Would you do the same?

  • Uncharted 4 Looks Incredible on PS4

    uncharted 4So a new gameplay trailer of Uncharted 4 was just released, and the internet has been taken aback by how amazing the game currently looks. Personally, I'm not all that surprised at the quality of the fourth Uncharted installment, and I'll tell you why.

    Every time Naughty Dog have released a new game, their attention to detail has always been on point - they managed to release the Last of Us on the PS3 and make it look incredible, and every Uncharted release has always been miles ahead of every other game released in it's time in terms of graphical integrity.

    This time round, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End certainly looks like the best game the PlayStation 4 will have to offer, and everything from the sweat on Drake's back, to the pores in his face are textured by hand, and it's just phenomenal how Naughty Dog continue to amaze with the quality of their games.

    Something that really got me interested about the latest gameplay video was the amazing combat - it seems every fight was action packed and filled with tense struggles, especially when Drake was not equipped with a weapon, but his assailant was.

    I honestly think Uncharted 4 will be the best PlayStation 4 game for a long while, and there isn't really much coming anytime soon that will have the story, graphics and love that Naughty Dog have poured into A Thief's End. What are your thoughts on the game? Feel free to let us know your own opinions.

  • Next Assassins' Creed May Be Set in Victorian Age London

    assassins creed victoryUbisoft made a big mistake with AC: Unity - the game was tacky, not prepared properly, and fell apart on many people's consoles. Of course, when it came to story and actual gameplay content, Unity was actually pretty impressive, and this is why I'm quite excited to hear about rumors for Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed game.

    There are two reasons why I am excited, the next Assassin's Creed game couldn't possibly be launched in a state anywhere near as bad as Unity was, unless Ubisoft are purposely trying to murder the franchise.

    The second reason is because, according to some rumors, the new Assassin's Creed game will be set in Victorian age London. We've seen plenty of revolutions in the Assassin's Creed universe now, but taking things back to the Victorian age will open up some interesting possibilities.

    If the next AC game is set in Victorian age London, we can expect dark London streets and plenty of opportunity for great assassinations thanks to the great buildings found within London at the time.

    According to other rumors, the next game in the Assassin's Creed franchise will be named Victory, which would fit in perfectly with the Victorian theme.

    Would you like to see the next AC game in Victorian London, or would you prefer the game to be set elsewhere? Personally, we think there is a lot of potential for this kind of setting, but Ubisoft seem to be pretty good at capturing any historical setting or time zone.

  • Titanfall Attends PlayStation Conference

    titanfall 2 ps4]If we go back a year to the release of Titanfall, you may remember all of the frustration over the Titanfall Xbox One exclusivity deal. Because of the huge amount of hype behind the game, Respawn Entertainment managed to sell quite a few Xbox's for Microsoft, but despite this, rumors kept spreading that Titanfall 2, a game that is definitely in the works, will not be an Xbox exclusive, despite the status of it's predecessor.

    Of course, at the time there was no proof that Titanfall 2 would be available for any console other than those owned by Microsoft, but shortly after Respawn did mention that they would not have to be locked down to Microsoft's system with their next games. This instantly made many people believe that Titanfall 2 was headed for cross-platform, and there wasn't much to deny it.

    To further cement the rumors that Respawn Entertainment will be ending their exclusivity deal for Titanfall, recently the Respawn developers were spotted at the PlayStation conference, an event that was held to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the console line.

    It would be odd to think that a third party Xbox exclusive development studio had reason to be at the conference unless they were in talks with Sony to bring Titanfall 2 to the PlayStation 4.

    Personally, I think Titanfall 2 will come to the PS4, but I doubt the game will be made exclusive to Sony's system, despite certain rumors. I think that the Titanfall franchise will remain cross-platform going forward, and any attempts to make it exclusive by either side of the console war will most likely be ridiculed by the gaming community.

  • Red Dead Redemption Sequel Planned for PS4 and Xbox One

    red dead redemption sequelHurrah! Rockstar Games have finally opened up their doors to reveal their plans for their next upcoming game, and it will be Red Dead Redemption 2. We have been expecting a sequel for Red Dead for a while now, but Rockstar have been pretty quiet about it.

    However, recent rumors suggest that Rockstar Games are working hard to release Red Dead Redemption 2. The game will be available for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, and it will take the best elements from the original game and bring it into a new story.

    Whilst Rockstar have not responded to the recent rumors, an insider has suggested that the new Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released at some point in 2015, and it will take a focus on co-op play.

    Whilst the original Red Dead Redemption did have some multiplayer elements, this was solely a different experience to the main game, so it will be interesting to see where the co-operative parts of Red Dead Redemption 2 will come in.

    Whether Rockstar will make it so that the game gives players more story content for co-operative players, or they choose to make it entirely a co-operative experience, we do not know, but we are very excited to see what will come from Red Dead Redemption 2.

    Hopefully we will hear more about the game in the near future. If the game is set for a release at some point in 2015, we are bound to get an official reveal fairly soon.

  • Sony Pays Homage to Crash Bandicoot in Odd Tweet

    Crash BandicootDespite being a very popular franchise for the original two PlayStation consoles, Sony has failed to mention anything about the future of Crash Bandicoot for a very long time. No news of development on new Crash Bandicoot games has been revealed by Sony, and many fans have presumed that the franchise is now dead.

    Whatever the truth may be, we don't know - all we can do is speculate. One rumor is that Crash Bandicoot has some trademark problems, and Sony doesn't actually own all of the rights to the game, which basically means they cannot get away with releasing a new Crash Bandicoot, even if they wanted to.

    Others suggest that development for Crash Bandicoot has simply been dropped by Sony following the last few games that did not sell very well on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    Either way, Sony has recently posted an image on their Twitter that pays homage to the franchise, and many gamers have jumped to the conclusion that Sony might just be planning a Crash Bandicoot comeback, and the Tweet, which is the first time Sony has publically mentioned Crash in a long time, is a small teaser for what is to come.

    Whether that is true or not, I cannot say, but I'm sure many PS4 owners out there would be incredibly excited to get their hands on a new Crash Bandicoot game. However, with the large amount of PlayStation exclusives currently lined up for release, it may be a while before a new Crash Bandicoot pops up on Sony's radar.
