  • Microsoft Doesn't Plan on Releasing an Xbox One Without Kinect

    Although the Launch Edition of the Xbox One comes bundled with the Kinect 2.0, there wasn't an official confirmation whether the Xbox One would be released without the Kinect 2.0 or not within the future.

    Microsoft has recently replied to concerns about the topic to state that "We have no plans to introduce an Xbox One without Kinect. We believe in Kinect and the value it brings to both games and entertainment, and believe $499 is a great value for what consumers receive with their Xbox One."

    Rumors started to spread that Microsoft were going to release a console without the  Kinect 2.0 as a Microsoft representative stated that the Xbox One does not need the Kinect 2.0 to run. Since then it seems that Microsoft has called this out as a typo and Microsoft has since backtracked to the previous announcement that the Kinect 2.0 is needed to allow the Xbox One to work.

    Because of the added costs of the Kinect 2.0, the Xbox One costs more than the PlayStation 4 does which does not come bundled with the PlayStation Eye.

    Personally I think it is a little unfair to force customers to buy the Kinect, especially when it is a piece of equipment that some people may feel they do not need at all. I still think the Kinect is a bit of a gimmick and have yet to see a real handy use for the gesture based gadget.

  • GRID 2 DLC Incoming

    Codemasters has announced a few upcoming DLC packs for GRID 2 including a DLC pack that adds the Demolition Derby mode previously seen in the first GRID game.

    According to Codemasters, the developers of GRID 2 plan on releasing a free community patch that adds multiple changes on the game that reflect players feedback since the release of the game. The free patch will include the demolition derby mode, along with some other changes and will hit GRID 2 this August.

    Some of the changes make differences to the custom playlist, hardcore playlist and an update to the level cap, increasing the highest level from 30 to a huge 99. A lot more changes will be made to the game in this free update including a few tweaks to the racing system and an overhaul to the anti cheat system.

    Community manager Ben Walke also went on to discuss two new DLC track packs.

    "These packs will each contain a new circuit, some cars and also include new achievements and trophies for you to obtain. We'll have all the info a bit closer to their release and we think you'll like them."

    Although the two DLC packs do cost money, it's nice to see GRID 2 have a patch that adds content that doesn't cost anything on top of the original cost of the game.

  • New Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Gameplay Shows off Open World

    If you weren't satisfied enough with the first 8 minute game play video, Ashraf Ismail, director of the Assassins' Creed series has narrated another game play video. This 14 minute video goes into some of the game play dynamics found within the open world of Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag, and shows a little about the story of Edward Kenway, the protagonist you'll be playing as in Black Flag.

    The video starts off by showing the viewer a contract mission that the player has accepted and how the player navigates the world map and in-game to find the contract victim. The video also shows the player traversing the open world a little and shows a bit more of the ship game mechanics.

    We already saw the 8 minute game play video delve into the ship game play, but this 13 minute game play video helps to showcase the integration between the ship game play and the rest of the world, and I am quite impressed at just how seamless the whole situation feels.

    Personally I can't wait to give Assassins' Creed 4: Black Flag a try upon its release on October 29th.

    Will you be getting Assassins Creed 4 on this generation or will you wait to play the game on either the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4?

  • World Rally Championship 4 Announced for Current Gen Consoles

    Despite being moved over to a new publisher, the developers of the World Rally Championship series don't expect to stop developing any time soon. In fact, Bigben, the new publisher for the series, has recently revealed that World Rally Championship 4 will be making it's way to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and PS Vita this October.

    World Rally Championship will include all of the rallies included in this years FIA World Rally Championship calendar, on top of all the leading teams and drivers.

    The 4th game in the series will be improved upon in many other ways as well, including a brand new high graphical redesign with bran new real life in-game sounds for the vehicles and the environments they drive on.

    World Rally Championship 4 will also include a brand new career mode that will allow the player to play as a rally driver in the 2013 championship, and according to Bigben, "Realism and immersion are two of the most important pillars of the development, with impressive 3D environments and an HDR system that will grant the best in-game performance."

    The game will also include a multiplayer online mode that will allow players to compete against each other. No mention has been made about a next-gen release so it looks like WRC4 will be for this generation only.

  • New God of War Announcement Soon?

    So although we may not be hearing news of a new God of War next gen game just yet, Sony Santa Monica has shown a teaser of something new for the God of War franchise. Sony Santa Monica took to Twitter to post an Instagram teaser video of something that looked like a new addition to God of War: Ascension.

    The link has now been removed for some reason, but the video did show some footage of God of War that hinted at some kind of 'arena mode.'

    Sony Santa Monica followed with another Instagram teaser video, but once again the video has been removed.

    If I could make an educated guess, I'd say the new teaser will be released within the next month and will be a new DLC add-on to God of War: Ascension that will add some kind of combat based multiplayer battle arena. I could be wrong, but that is certainly what the videos seemed to show.

    For now we'll just have to wait to see just exactly what will happen, but a new God of War game reveal is certainly off the 2013 radar for now at least, but I don't doubt that there will be a new God of War game for the PlayStation 4 at some point in the future.

  • DICE Working Hard on Star Wars: Battlefront

    Fans were a little disappointed when Lucasarts officially closed down and Disney took control of Lucusfilms. Many gamers expected that this meant there were not going to be any more Star Wars themed games, but DICE shocked us all at E3 with a small 20 second teaser revealing Star Wars: Battlefront, a game that has long been wanted by many gamers and Star Wars fans alike.

    EA games label president Frank Gibeau has talked a little about DICE's progress on the game at EA's FY14 Q1 earnings call and stated that "The DICE team is well into development on that product already, so we feel very bullish about our shooter rotation over the next several years."

    Gibeau also went on to saying that Battlefront 3 will have a third-person component to it, hinting that the third game in the series will offer both third-person and first-person just like the previous games.

    A release window hasn't been given on the game, but we can definitely expect to hear more about it soon, and I would guess the game would arrive late 2014 or early 2015.

  • Xbox One Will Offer Unlimited Cloud Storage to Xbox Live Gold Members

    One thing that Microsoft won't seem to drop when it comes to the Xbox One is the phrase "the power of the cloud." I've personally seen time and time again an Xbox One representative praise this power but apart from Forza Motorsport 5, we haven't really seen any reason to believe that there really is any power within the cloud, at least as far as the Xbox One is concerned.

    I do hope that this changes in the future, and Microsoft will hopefully reveal more uses for their cloud capabilities as the Xbox One grows.

    One such use has been revealed, and it will allow Xbox One owners to store an unlimited amount of data on their Xbox One straight to the cloud.

    This is a similar feature already seen on the Xbox 360, however, Xbox Live gold members will be given unlimited storage as a benefit of being a paying Xbox subscriber instead of just 512mb. Microsoft has stated that -

    "Xbox Live offers Xbox One unlimited storage space in the cloud for all Xbox Live Gold members to store numerous types of Xbox Live content, including your profile, games, Achievements and entertainment. This content is stored and saved in the cloud so you can automatically access it anywhere, anytime, no matter where you are."

    The statement did include the word 'games' so it'll be interesting to see if we'll be capable of installing full games to the cloud or not.

  • Soulcaliber II HD Online Announced for 2013 Release

    Namco Bandai have taken to this year's San Diego Comic-con to announce the release of their new HD remake for Soulcaliber II.

    A trailer has been shown to highlight the differences between the original game that was released for Xbox, PlayStation 2 and Gamecube, and the new HD remake that will be making it's way to Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year.

    The new Soulcaliber II HD Online will have a brand new online multiplayer system allowing players to battle with others online, and will have a newly remastered graphical update to better suit today's hardware.

    The trailer has shown footage of Hehachi from Tekken, a guest character in the original game, however footage of Link from Zelda and Todd Mcfarlane's Spawn was not in the footage, giving many the assumption that these two characters won't be making an appearance in Soulcaliber II HD Online.

    A lot of angry Wii U owners have vented their frustration online, stating that there should be a Wii U version that includes Link as a playable character.

    It's unlikely Namco Bandai will bring out a Wii U version, however the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will be launched this Fall, 2013.

  • New Dead Rising 3 Could be a Huge Open World

    If you've watched the E3 trailer for Dead Rising 3, you'll know that there is a lot to be excited about. For me, it would be one of the only games i'd want an Xbox One at launch for. The first two Dead Rising games were fun but the areas you roamed became a little dull after spending 10 odd hours within them.

    It's good to know that Dead Rising 3 will have an open world that is capable of accommodating both the spaces within Dead Rising 1 and Dead Rising 2 combined. This also didn't account for the extra 'room to spare' on top of the space capable of accommodating the first two games Josh Bridge has talked about at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

    Executive Produced of the series, Bridge also went on to discuss a few other things about Dead Rising 3 such as "an unmatched level of weapon and character customization, and immersive Xbox SmartGlass and Kinect integration, Dead Rising 3 delivers a heart-pounding experience unlike any other as players fight for survival in a massive, open world teeming with thousands of undead."

  • New Borderlands 2 DLC and Level Cap Increase

    If you're still playing through all of the extra content Gearbox has released for Borderlands 2, we're just giving you a quick nudge to let you know that you won't be close to completing it any time soon. Why? Because Gearbox has just announced another DLC content update and level cap increase.

    The new update will add the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 which will cost $5 and will allow players to level their characters to level 72. This new pack will also add a new fighting zone that will pit you off against waves of enemies you wouldn't usually see fighting alongside each other.

    On top of this, a new mission will be released in time for Halloween called Headhunter Pack: T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest. This mission will follow the story of T.K. Baha, a character first seen in Borderlands 1 and will end with a boss fight against Jacquest O' Lantern. Players will be able to unlock new customization options throughout the mission.

    Gearbox has also released some new heads for Borderlands 2 that fit in with Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, and it's clear to see that Gearbox has filled this game with 100s of hours of gameplay past the original hours of playtime first available at the launch of the game.

    If you're a fan of the robust weapon options in Borderlands 2, you will want to check up on our Controller Creator that gets updated on a weekly basis.
