  • 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.

  • Street Fighter 5 Revealed as PS4 Exclusive

    Street Fighter 5Out of nowhere, Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter 5 is in the works, but the most surprising bit of news from Capcom's announcement was it's decision to make Street Fighter 5 an exclusive for the PlayStation 4.

    The Street Fighter franchise has always been available on both Xbox and PlayStation, so it is odd to see Capcom suddenly move over to PlayStation 4 only. The only thing we can think of is Sony have managed to offer Capcom a payout they couldn't turn down, and as a result the game has been given PS4 exclusivity.

    Interestingly, Street Fighter 5 will also be made available for the PC, but it's console exclusivity remains on the PlayStation 4.

    A full gameplay reveal trailer for Street Fighter 5 was released by Capcom, but it has since been set to private - perhaps the development company and publisher isn't quite ready to reveal the game to the world just yet.

    Either way, we can expect to see some real gameplay of Street Fighter 5 fairly shortly, and perhaps in a year or two, we’ll also see the game land on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    Are you frustrated that Street Fighter 5 has been made exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and the PC, or is it something you could live with? Personally, we think this kind of deal will only fuel more third part exclusivity deals in the future, further pushing away from the boundaries of console parity.

  • Lizard Squad Set For Ruining A Happy Xbox Christmas

    Lizard SquadIf you weren't accustomed to the name already, Lizard Squad is the title given to a group of online hackers that have spent their time bringing down online services for big corporations, and in the past they have managed to attack Sony, League of Legends and many other companies, typically related to the video game industry.

    They have now set their sights on an even bigger challenge, and it is actually quite scary, considering the damage they have done in the past. Lizard Squad took to Twitter earlier this month to announce that the plan to bring down Xbox Live on December 25th, and they hope to keep it down forever.

    The tweet stated, "This is not a threat, but a promise. On Christmas we will tap in to Microsoft and shut down Xbox Live, forever!"

    Obviously, Microsoft are taking the issue very seriously, and I'm sure they will do their best to ensure server performance is as good as possible leading up to Christmas. Microsoft did issue a warning that increased traffic may cause Xbox Live servers to be a little slower than normal on Christmas day, but other than this, no mention has been given about the potential loss of service from Lizard Squad.

    Honestly, I don't think Microsoft has too much to worry about, and there's no way Lizard Squad would be able to bring down their servers forever, if at all. We'll just have to wait for Christmas day to see exactly what happens.

  • The Crew will Release with No Game-Breaking Bugs, Before Reviews

    the crew launch bugsAfter the controversy behind Assassins' Creed Unity, it's no surprise that many gamers are starting to worry about any games released by Ubisoft at this point, and it seems to have scared many people away from buying into the Crew, a new upcoming new gen racing game.

    Whilst the Crew has been in development for a long time and has even been pushed back so that Ubisoft can polish the quality of it, many people are still worried about any bugs that may be preset at launch.

    Ubisoft on the other hand seem pretty confident that there is nothing to worry about, and they have even mentioned that the Crew will be launched without any game-breaking bugs. This seems to be majorly down to the open beta stages of the Crew, something that Assassin's Creed Unity did not have.

    "For The Crew, we've reaped the benefits of a long term beta program, designed specifically to push our infrastructure as far as possible in real world situations, with thousands of players from all over the world playing the game at the same time."

    Interestingly, Ubisoft will not be giving any early copies of the Crew out to reviewers, so we will have no inside feedback about the game until after it has launched. This will mean that players will not have any critic reviews to go on when making a purchasing decision, so those that are worried about the quality of the game may want to wait a couple of days before diving in.

  • Halo 5 Multiplayer - 15 Minutes of Gameplay Released

    halo 5 multiplayer gameplayAlthough the Master Chief Collection has been filled with issues at launch, the new Halo 5: Guardians is still being worked on by 343 Industries, and they are getting ever closer to releasing the game.

    Whilst for most of the development process 343 have been pretty quiet about Halo 5, we have seen an influx of new content recently, and just this week 343 released yet another gameplay video, showcasing the new multiplayer in action.

    This time round, the gameplay lasts for 15 minutes and it shows off two full games of slayer. The first map is played on Empire, a map we have already seen in previous videos, whilst the second map is Crossfire, one that some of you may not have yet seen.

    As always, Halo 5 is looking pretty good in this latest gameplay video, and the great lighting can be seen in full effect. One thing that is clear is that 343 have attempted to put a lot more emphasis into the power weapons in Halo 5, and a typical game of slayer will revolve more around weapon spawns in the map.

    Messages will even be announced when a team picks up a weapon such as a sniper rifle or a rocket launcher, and the start message mentions "picking up power weapons" is part of the Slayer game rules.

    If you are a longtime Halo fan, I think you'll like what you see. You can check out the video here.
