  • Nintendo Switch Availability May Be Limited

    nintendo switch availability 2017Because of the popularity surrounding the Nintendo Switch, getting hold of a console on launch day may prove to be a little difficult. Currently, most Nintendo Switch consoles are being picked up via pre-orders, so if you're interested in picking up the console too, it's advisable to do this as well.

    Alternatively, if you're planning to pick up a Nintendo Switch on launch day, you may be better off heading to the midnight launch. GameStop merchandising director Bub Puzon has mentioned that "We will have a limited supply of the Nintendo Switch systems on launch day for walk-in customers. Our teams made this happen. I would strongly suggest customers plan on attending one of our midnight launch events for a shot at securing one of these extra units. They will go fast!"

    As you can imagine, this ethos is likely to be replicated with most other retailers and online stores.

    The Nintendo Switch is set to release on March 3 - so far there is a total of 39 different games that have been confirmed for the platform. To begin with, however, just six titles will be available at launch. The six launch titles are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, Super Bomberman R, Just Dance 2017, Skylanders Imaginators and I Am Setsuna. All six games will retail for between $40-$60, while the Switch itself will be on sale for $300.

    A number of other games are set to release throughout the remainder of 2017, with Super Mario Odyssey landing during the 2017 Holiday period.

  • Nintendo Switch Release Date Revealed

    nintendo switch release dateAfter a big unveiling event, details about the Nintendo Switch have been revealed to the world. We now know when the Nintendo Switch will release, the first party games it will include at launch and the price tag of the console and some of its accessories.

    First things first; the release date. Nintendo has confirmed that the Nintendo Switch will get a release on March 3rd, 2017. The console will be made available globally from this date, so if you're interested in picking up a console make sure to have your calendars marked.

    If you'd rather pre-order the Nintendo Switch, you can do so from a local retailer. For example, GameStop is currently accepting pre-orders for the Switch in the United States. The price tag for the Switch sits at $299.99 in the United States and $399.99 in Canada. The Nintendo Switch can be purchased for 279.99 pounds in the UK.

    While extra accessories will be available, the day one unit will feature a left and right Joy-Con controller, wrist straps for each Joy-Con, a Joy-Con grip, a dock for the Nintendo Switch, an HDMI cable and an AC adapter for charging and playing at home.

    To begin with, there will be two different color variants - while the console color will remain the same, one option will include gray controllers whilst the other will include metallic blue and red controllers.

    With the PS4 starting at $299 and the Xbox One starting at $249, Nintendo clearly aims to make the Switch a direct competitor, despite the console offering a more portable experience

  • Official Red Xbox One Controller Coming

    red-xbox-one-controllerIn an interesting move to stand out from the crowd, Xbox has announced a bright and colorful red Xbox One controller.

    The new all-red controller is expected to hit the online Xbox store from January 11. By all-red, we really mean it by the way. Everything from the accents on the buttons to the chassis and bumper buttons is red. The only hint of non-red is seen on the Xbox symbol, which remains white.

    The new controller will be on sale for $64.99, and GameStop will also stock it, both online and in-store.

    This isn't the first time Xbox has attempted to offer their customers new personalization options. In the past, they released the Xbox Design Lab, which allowed players to pick out their own colors for each part of an Xbox One controller.

    Despite the selection of colors, the Xbox One Design Lab still can't trump our own Custom Controller Creator - we add a greater range of colors for selection, and also have a variety of decals and fancier graphics available for the main chassis. And let's not get started on the variety of features and mods that can make our controllers even more elite than the Elite controller itself.

    We like where you're going Xbox, but you've still got a lot of catching up to do in the custom controller game.

    Why not take a look at our custom controller creator to see how it compares to the Xbox Design lab? We'll be surprised if you disagree.

  • For Honor Collector's Edition Announced

    for-honor-collectors-editionA For Honor Collector's Edition is going available for sale - the news has been announced after a listing for the collector's edition was found on GameStop's online store.

    The collector's edition is currently on GameStop for a price of $219.99. Whilst this is an expensive price tag, especially for new IP, the collector's edition does include quite a lot of content. The $219.99 version of For Honor has been nicknamed the Apollyon Collector's Edition so make sure to search for that if you're interested in learning more.

    Firstly, the Apollyon Collector's Edition includes the gold version of the For Honor game. (essentially the base game with included season pass).

    The Collector's Edition also includes a 14 inch statue of Apollyon. The description on the GameStop listing for the statue reads as follows: "Standing at over a foot tall, this highly-detailed statue features an accurate reproduction of Apollyon, For Honor's main Warlord."

    A lithograph (basically a re-print) of Apollyon has also been included in the Collector's Edition. Interestingly, the description for the Apollyon lithograph includes a description which reads, "The Warlord of the Blackstone Legion seeks to bring war to her enemies in this exclusive Limited Edition Lithograph."

    On top of the statue and the artwork, a note has been included with the package, which, according to the store listing, will reveal more information about Apollyon.

    Obviously the biggest selling point for the Collector's Edition is the 14 inch statue, but the added lithograph and note are nice to see, too.

  • Huge Xbox One Spring Sale Begins

    xbox one spring salesA giant Spring sale has just gone live for the Xbox and it includes deals for movies, games, TV and season passes for both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.

    There may be different deals depending on your region, but there are major sales going in the United Kingdom and the United States right now.

    On top of the great digital sales, which will be held throughout the week, there is a brand new special trade-in offer that will allow Xbox 360 owners to trade in their console with a 250GB hard drive for a $125 off coupon for an Xbox One at Gamestop.

    Pool Nation FX has also gone live as a free Games with Gold title on the Xbox One, along with Child of Light and Rayman Legends. Over on the Xbox 360 Gears of War Judgement and Terraria are available for free this month. Usually only three games are available each month through the Games with Gold program but this month five games are up for grabs as a way of celebrating the Xbox's most recent success.

    In other news, Microsoft posted a new video to their Xbox Youtube channel that shows off launch events for Gears of War 3 that were held across the world. It was a bit odd for Microsoft to upload a video like that now, and many are assuming that a brand new Gears of War remaster may be coming. Could this latest video be some sort of hint towards a new Xbox One Gears of War game?

  • New Updates Made to Keep Battlefield 4 Going Strong

    battlefield 4 2015Even though Battlefield Hardline is just around the corner, Dice do not want players to feel the need to jump ship every time there is a new Battlefield game at your local Gamestop. In fact, new details reveal Dice's plan to keep Battlefield 4 going strong throughout 2015, and perhaps even further than that.

    Dice already announced that additional content was planned for Battlefield 4 passed the pre-planned DLC packs, and this week we've received more information about what this new content will include.

    The most expensive thing to come out of the new update is that Battlefield 4 players will be treated to two new expansions, hopefully planned for this year. To make things better, most, if not all of the new content pushed out this year should be available for no charge, even for those that have not spent a penny past the original cost of the game.

    Part of the reason why the new content may be free might come down to a new initiative that Dice will be opening up to their community soon. Using the community test environment, Dice will work alongside players to create, edit and fine tune a Battlefield 4 map that will be completely community-driven.

    The first new update for 2015 will launch in March, with a few changes to player collision and the squad obliteration mode. It sounds as if EA's tight grip on Battlefield 4 may now have died out, and that's giving Dice a big chance to show the world they still care about their community. I can't wait to see what comes out of 2015.

  • GameStop COD Advanced Warfare Pre-orders Come With DLC for Previous COD Titles

    Advanced Warfare Preorder bonusesGameStop is hosting a brand new promotion that rewards gamers for pre-ordering the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare from their retail stores or their online website. If you choose to pre-order the new Call of Duty title through GameStop, you will be given a new personalization DLC pack that can be downloaded for both Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty Ghosts as soon as your pre-order goes through.

    The personalization pack offers a host of new Advanced Warfare themed cosmetic apparel, including a new weapon camo, a player patch, player card, a new reticle and a player background.

    None of this content provides any bonus to gameplay, and simply serves as an additional pack of personalization items, just as the name of the pack suggests. So far, it seems the only way to get ahold of this pack is by pre-ordering through GameStop.

    No other pre-order bonuses have been announced at this point, but it wouldn't be surprising if some kind of bonus for Advanced Warfare was announced at some point before it's release date.

    Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is the first COD title fully developed by Sledgehammer games, and it will be released in November this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A separate development studio is working on a previous gen port for PS3 and Xbox 360. The new futuristic approach could help to refresh the series, but the same basic Call of Duty multiplayer experience is bound to make it into Advanced Warfare.

  • Ogre and Stryder Titans Revealed by Titanfall Developers

    At the VGX awards this weekend, the developers behind the next gen FPS shooter, Titanfall, revealed two new Titans that will be operable within the game.

    Before this point, only one Titan, the Atlas was known by the public, but we now know of three total mechs that players will be able to control.

    The first one has been called the Ogre and, as the name suggests it will be a much, heavier, bulkier and more resistant version of the Atlas. The Ogre titan will have greater armor than any other titan, but at the cost of movement speed. To use this titan, players will have to unlock it first.

    The next titan revealed at the VGX awards was the Stryder, and it takes on a roll that is the polar opposite of the Ogre titan. This means that the Stryder will have considerably less armor than it's counterparts, but it will be relatively faster, allowing players to traverse the map quicker and dodge incoming attacks from other foot soldiers or other titans on the enemy team.

    Of course, the first Titan, the Atlas, will have a mid-range armor and speed rating. It will be interesting to see how well balanced all three of these titans will be in the average game of Titanfall. Hopefully we'll be able to find out upon the game's release next year on March 11th for North America and March 13th for Europe and Australia.New Titans Titanfall VGX

  • GTA V Now Available Digitally on Xbox LIVE

    After Grand Theft Auto V's amazingly successful launch, Microsoft have finally made a digital version of the game available for download on the Xbox Game's Store.

    Like many of the full games available on the Xbox Games Store, the digital version of Grand Theft Auto V will go for $59.99 in the United States, and possibly around £50 in the UK. You will also need a total of 7.63GB free space to download the game onto your hard drive.

    Whilst Microsoft have only just stepped up and released a digital copy of the game on their console's game marketplace, it has been available on the PlayStation Network since the game's launch.

    Many players have complained that the PlayStation 3 digital version has had problems with textures popping in and out, texture clipping issues, and other strange and unexplainable glitches such as parts of the game spawning late or not spawning at all.

    According to reports from officials, this is due to the hard drive not being able to stream data at the speed the game requires to run smoothly.

    This is the same issue why Rockstar have warned players not to install the "play" disc onto their Xbox 360. Because of the problems that the digital version has had on the PS3, it wouldn't be surprising if similar problems occur on the digital Xbox 360 version as well.

    We'd advise just popping out and buying the physical version to avoid problems and save a few pennies at the same time.

  • InFamous: Second Son Releases February 2014

    Despite being a game that we've had our eyes on for a while now, InFamous Second Son has only just scored a release date within the PS4 launch window.

    The PlayStation 4 exclusive title will be available to purchase in February 2014, much sooner than it's GameStop April 1st placeholder date.

    Previously the game was said to release within the PS4 launch window, and it has only just fit into this category. While a February 2014 release date seems quite far away, it means Suckerpunch, the developers behind the game, will be able to work on and improve any issues the game may have. Hopefully the game will release and be as enjoyable as previous media has made it out to be.

    Second Son is a series of open world third person shooter/action games and InFamous follows in the series as a sequel to Infamous 2, with story events happening 7 years after the events placed within the second game.

    Thanks to the PlayStation 4, InFamous: Second Son will be the best in the series yet and will use technology such as the PlayStation 4 controller's touch pad to make the game feel more smooth and immersive.
