  • Sony Keeping Hold of Stock so Consoles are Available at Launch

    It seems Sony has run into another stock problem. Again. However this time it's not all that bad because instead of it being a real lack of stock, Sony are stopping pre-orders so that they have a decent amount of consoles available for customers who may want to buy it in-store or online after launch day.

    Sony wants to be able to keep stock available throughout the holiday season and they believe that holding back stock now will help them to ensure that there are PS4's on the shelves every day.

    "We want to make sure people can buy a PS4 on November 15 and through the holidays," SCE America's Jack Tretton said. "So, we're holding back some inventory to make sure people will be able to buy one.

    "We can pre-sell every unit we can manufacture, and the good news is that production yields have been phenomenal. We're going to work very hard to make sure that every consumer that wants one gets one."

    Hopefully this won't make much a difference to most gamers- it's likely those serious about getting a PS4 on launch day already have one pre-ordered, and those that don't now have a guaranteed chance of picking one up in store when they are ready to.

    This plan has only been talked about in North America, and currently there isn't any information as to whether the same deal will happen in other regions.

  • Next-Gen Titles Given Release Dates

    Not sure whether to order yourself a copy of FIFA 14, Madden 25 or Battlefield 4 for the current generation consoles or next generation? Luckily there isn't going to be much of a difference between qualities of each version for all three of these games so you won't be missing out on anything if you do get it for current gen, but if you plan on buying it for next gen, you'll have to wait longer, and this is because the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 won't be available till after the release of FIFA 14, Madden 25 and Battlefield 4 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    You won't have to wait that long if you're wanting to play either of these games on the next generation though, and COO of EA, Peter Moore, has said in a blog post that FIFA 14, Madden 25 and Battlefield 4 will make it to both the Xbox One and PS4 before launch date.

    That means you'll be able to bag yourself these three games within November, however the specific date will depend on where you are living, what console you buy, and what launch date either Sony or Microsoft has planned for your region.

    To clarify, Peter said "I'm happy to confirm today the street dates for these three titles on next-generation consoles: Nov. 19 (North America)/Nov. 21 (Europe) for Xbox One and Nov. 12 (North America)/Nov. 29 (Europe) for PlayStation 4."

  • Grand Theft Auto V Cheats Found

    Grand Theft Auto V has only just come out and players are already delving deep into the games roots to find out about any cheat codes that may be lying around. And unsurprisingly, cheat codes have been found.

    Cheat codes have always been around since the origins of the Grand Theft Auto series and they have been here to stay all the way throughout so it makes sense that Grand Theft Auto V is no exception.

    In GTA V, the cheats sound like a whole lot of fun, so whether you've got the game just to mess around, or you plan on having some fun after completing the game, make sure to check back to this post because there'll be down waiting for you.

    GTA V uses the traditional method of using cheats instead of the phone system that was used in GTA IV, so you'll have to activate cheat codes by tapping buttons in-game. Here are five of the best cheats available in-game for both Xbox 360 and PS3.

    PS3 Run Faster- TRIANGLE, LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, L2, L1, SQUARE

    Xbox 360 Run Faster- Y, LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, LT, LB, X

    PS3 Explosive Melee Attacks- RIGHT, LEFT, X, TRIANGLE, R1, CIRCLE, CIRCLE, CIRCLE, L2

    Xbox 360 Explosive Melee Attacks- RIGHT, LEFT, A, Y, RB, B, B, B, LT

  • GTA V Leaks Spread through the Internet

    Despite Rockstar pleading to the public to not leak their game, even they didn't doubt that the game would probably get leaked and torrented before release. And the result of leaked copies of the game selling before the release is filled with clips and footage of the game all over the internet on websites like Youtube, Facebook, Reddit and Instagram.

    Rockstar are trying their hardest to remove the footage, but because there are so many different people uploading footage, it's going to be pretty difficult.

    It's become a trend to see popular games leak before their release date. For example, people were playing Halo 4 on the Xbox 360 at least a week before it actually came out. Microsoft responded to this harshly by banning any accounts that showed online play history of the game before the release date.

    Rockstar doesn't have the manpower or backing by either Microsoft or Sony to do this so it's likely leaks will lead up to the game's release. The cause of this is mainly due to game retailer employees selling off copies before the release date, and once millions of copies have been sent out, there really isn't much you can do to stop it.

  • GAME Opening 300 Stores for FIFA 14 Midnight Release

    If you're in the UK and want to get your hands on FIFA 14 as quickly as possible you may want to visit one of 300 stores this September that will be opening their doors at midnight for a midnight release for FIFA 14.

    Stores will open usually around 11:45 to 12 PM, however current stores that will be participating have not yet been announced.

    If you want to get your hands on the game before release to see if you like what you see before buying it, you'll also be able to download the new demo that was recently released on September 10th. This demo is available for PC, Xbox 360 and PC.

    On top of this, whilst Europe is set for a September 27th release, if you're in North America you will be able to get the game on an earlier September 24th release date, and you’ll have to wait for the release of the next gen consoles to get FIFA 14 as a launch title for either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox 360.

    FIFA 14 will include a wide range of new features such as a new career mode that allows you to better manage and train your players, along with a new global transfer network.

  • GTA V Already 'Feels Next Gen' According to Rockstar

    The possibility of a next gen release for Grand Theft Auto V has been on the minds of many, and as both the release for the next GTA and the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One draw closer, it's only natural to be curious about what may happen to the series upon hitting the next generation.

    When Rockstar was asked whether Grand Theft Auto Five would make it to either the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 no definitive answer was given, except that Phil Hooker, Rockstar North's technical director, believes that Rockstar 'already feels next generation.'

    In an interview with IGN Phil has said that "When we started we knew the scope of GTA 5 was huge and incredibly ambitious. Fortunately from completing GTA 4 we had a team that was already very familiar with the hardware."

    "Every aspect of the game had to be better, richer in gameplay and more fluid and knowing we were launching on the same platforms meant we could focus on extracting the most out of those consoles and making the game as fantastic as possible.

    "In the end we surpassed our own expectations and during development I think everyone working on the game has been astounded by improvements to the graphics, or new mechanics, or AI, or mission scope along the way.

    "Hopefully the gamers will see all of these improvements at once in one go, compared to GTA IV this definitely feels 'next generation' to us."

    This interview didn't really give much information towards what Rockstar's plans are with GTA V after launch, but it seems Rockstar are happy to go with the flow and as Rockstar's producer Leslie Benzies said, they are focusing on getting the current version out before seeing what happens in the future.

  • For $10 you can swap your Current Gen Games to Next Gen through Microsoft Store, Amazon or Best Buy

    The transition to a new generation of consoles isn't exactly the most convenient thing in the world. Firstly you have to fork out money for the new console, and then you have to invest in new controllers, new games and new peripherals. On top of this, this time round we won't be able to play Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One so if you want to play games like Battlefield 4, COD Ghosts or FIFA 14 on the new generation console, you'll have to go out and buy the Xbox One version.

    Luckily, Microsoft is making the transition a lot easier and a lot less tight on your wallets. You will be able to 'trade in' your current gen copy of games and in return receive a next gen version. For example, if you have purchased COD Ghosts for the Xbox 360 but want to play it with your buddies when they get it on Xbox One, you'll be able to drastically reduce the cost of the Xbox One version by trading in the Xbox 360 version.

    In fact, you'll only have to fork out another $10 to receive a copy of the game on Xbox One.

    Unfortunately this deal seems to only be available on Amazon, the Microsoft Store and Best Buy and will probably be exclusive to the US. Currently there doesn't seem to be any similar deal for PlayStation either.

  • Microsoft Compromises on No More FIFA 14 Bundles

    It's been recent news that FIFA 14 will only be bundled with pre-ordered Xbox One day one edition consoles. The Day one edition consoles have already sold out, meaning any more pre-orders will not include FIFA 14, despite Microsoft previously announcing 'every' pre-ordered Xbox One console will receive a free game.

    This leads us to think that there isn't really a FIFA 14 for everyone and although the big M settled a deal with EA, it seems that there was only a limited amount of free FIFA 14 day one bundles available.

    Because Microsoft were unclear about this at the time of announcing the deal they have offered a compromise to those who didn't get the chance to pre-order the day one edition console due to 'unprecedented demand.'

    Microsoft has decided to offer a free copy of Forza 5 to those who pre-order the console now that the FIFA 14 free copies have run dry.

    This scheme seems very confusing, and what's stranger is that the FIFA 14 deal is only available to those in Europe and there isn't an American offer similar to this. The new Forza 5 deal is also only available for the UK.

  • Microsoft Aims for Day One Xbox One Consoles to be Available in-store

    Microsoft Studios Vice President Phil Spencer seems to be keen on making sure the availability of the Xbox One is a whole lot better than it was for the 360 on its launch date. The most important part of this, at least in Phil Spencer's eyes is that it should be easy for those who didn't think to pre-order to be able to go in-store and buy a readily available Xbox One on launch day.

    "Availability should feel a lot better than it did for 360. If people want to pick up more controllers and games, they'll be there. We feel really good about our pre-order number, and we're managing it through allocation rather than demand." Phil Spencer said in an interview to Game Informer "Pre-Order isn't the business. It's way more important to me what happens when people walk in the store. The business is selling consoles."

    This is good news amid fears that even the so-far less popular choice for gamers could be out of stock on launch day, and hopefully we'll see not only Xbox One's in-store but PlayStation 4's, controllers, games and a wide range of day one peripherals for players to purchase and use on the day the console is out.

    "You want people to be able to walk in the store and buy one on day one, so you're trying to manage the inventory that isn't pre-sold. It's not a yield problem, it's us trying to manage the hardware side," Phil said "I want parents who don't think about pre-ordering electronics to be able to walk in and have a chance to find a box. There might be a line, but I don't want it to be that if you didn't pre-order in September, you can't get one. That doesn't feel like a great consumer experience."

  • PlayStation 4 Amazon Pre-orders delivering on launch day, Sony ramping up production

    If you were worried about Sony running out of PlayStation 4's due to production issues before, you now don't need to worry.

    Firstly, Sony are pushing hard to produce as many PlayStation 4's as needed, and that high demand should hopefully be met with enough consoles spare for the shelves on launch day. A leaked image has shown boxes upon boxes of PlayStation 4's leaving a manufacturing warehouse so the PS4 is definitely now in mass production.

    Another good piece of news for those that haven't pre-ordered yet is that you still have a chance to pre-order and receive a console on launch day. Amazon are ensuring that any pre-orders for the PlayStation 4 console, even if they are just being pre-ordered now, will get the pre-orderer their console on launch day.

    However, if you do want to pre-order from Amazon and haven't yet, you will need to pre-order a bundled version that costs $459. This is the same bundle as the standard launch edition except that it includes an extra controller.
