  • Sony Getting Sued for Misleading 1080P Claims

    sony sued killzoneRemember when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were leading up to be released? A lot of talk in the industry revolved around screen resolution for launch titles, and fan boys fought over resolutions and frame rates like it actually mattered.

    Unfortunately, both Microsoft and Sony weren't 100% honest about the frame rates and resolutions the launch games were going to offer, and it looks as if that little bit of bending the truth has landed Sony in a bit of trouble.

    According to reports, one individual has just sued Sony for a total of $5 million after declaring that one of the PlayStation 4's launch titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall would support a native 1080P resolution.

    Truthfully, the 1080P resolution in Killzone Shadow Fall isn't native at all. Whilst the single player did prove to be native 1080P, the multiplayer had a stretched resolution; the screen did display 1080 pixels high, but it only showed 960 pixels wide - the display was then stretched width ways to fit the right dimensions to match full HD.

    Whilst it's true that Killzone Shadow Fall isn't being constantly played at native 1080P, it seems like a bit of an odd thing for someone to sue for. Unfortunately, it's all very real for Sony, and it shows that not being honest when marketing new games is not something to take lightly.

    So far, nothing is definite, but if the lawsuit against Sony can prove that Sony falsely advertised Killzone's resolution and benefited off of doing so, Sony may have to cough up $5.4 million.

  • Battlefield Hardline Delayed to 2015

    hardline delay 2015Despite releasing a new Battlefield title every year for the past few years, Visceral Games and EA have made the collective decision to push back the release of Battlefield Hardline, breaking the current annualization of the franchise and offering the developers more time to iron out any kinks with the game in it's current state.

    The reason behind the delay is primarily down to a range of new inspiration that has led Visceral Games back to the drawing board, thanks to the community's input from the recent Battlefield Hardline multiplayer beta.

    Visceral Games recently made a blog post on the EA Battlefield website to address the sudden launch date change, and details of that post can be read below.

    1. Multiplayer Innovation: Coming out of our E3 beta, internal focus tests, and work with our community, we have received a lot of great Multiplayer thinking. We're going to be adding some new feature ideas direct from the community that will evolve the cops and criminals fantasy into a truly unique Battlefield Multiplayer experience.
    2. Single Player Story Depth: In order to ensure our Single Player experience delivers on player expectations, we're spending more time polishing our core features, as well as adding a few new ones that will support a deeper "crime revenge" story experience.
    3. Stability: This has been a focus for our team since day one and we're going to be using the extra time to continue to optimize the game for a stable launch. We have learned a lot from Battlefield 4, are continuing to learn from our Community Test Environment and will learn more from another Hardline beta. More time allows us to surface issues that the team can attempt to fix prior to launch.

    Although Battlefield Hardline has been delayed our controller creation hasn't! Check out today what Evil Controllers has available for custom controller design! Get your very own controller today.

  • FIFA 15 Gameplay Trailer Released

    fifa 15 emotions trailerA brand new gameplay trailer has just been released for the upcoming EA Sports title, FIFA 15. Showcasing new crowds, player interactions and unique behaviour both for players and crowds, the trailer points out the 'emotion and intensity' the franchise has started to pick up on.

    Whilst the new changes to crowd and player emotions isn't exactly a huge gameplay feature, it's nice to see just how far the franchise has come in terms of capturing the spirit that many fans and players experience on the real pitch.

    Unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi will make it to the front cover box art for FIFA 15, for many regions across the globe.

    Despite showing some great advancements in crowd and player behaviour in the latest trailer for FIFA 15, EA have also stated that not all platforms will offer the same experience, which is most likely due to both hardware limitations and console exclusivity deals.

    For example, only Xbox consoles will receive FIFA 15 Ultimate Legends, which will most likely be a life time exclusive for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    FIFA 15 has been scheduled for launch later this year on September 29th, for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 & 3, Wii, 3DS, Vita and the PC.

    It will be interesting to see how each version differs from one another, especially when considering the game has been set to launch on the Wii, 3DS and the PS Vita. Surprisingly, the Wii U has been left out of the picture.

  • Want To Plank On Your Enemies In Killzone: Shadow Fall? Pay $2 and You Can!

    killzone fart packNo, I'm not kidding - Guerrilla Games have just released a brand new DLC pack that will allow players to fart on their fallen enemies. The new "Fun & Games Spotlight Pack" for Killzone Shadowfall was recently released for the PlayStation 4, and it comes with a wide range of benefits.

    Along with being able to perform farts at will, players who purchase and download the Fun & Games Spotlight Pack for Killzone Shadowfall will also be able to perform other 'comedy actions' such as planking and strange humiliating moves that should help bring the rage out in your enemies.

    The new actions have been called spotlight moves, and they can all be accessed by purchasing the $2 Fun & Games Spotlight DLC pack.

    I've noticed a lot of gamers and critics seem to be a bit disappointed with the whole idea, but personally I see nothing wrong with it. Players do not have to spend a penny on these Spotlight moves, and unlike other DLC content out there, purchasing the Spotlight pack doesn't offer players any real gameplay benefits over other players.

    The Spotlight pack simply serves as a way for fans to support their devs even further whilst having a little fun doing so. If you do buy the Fun & Games Spotlight pack, just please make sure to use it with caution. We're not responsible for any angry hate mail you may receive for farting on or intimidating your opponents.

  • New Killzone Shadowfall 1.30 Patch Rolled Out

    killzone shadowfall patchA new patch for has just rolled out for Killzone Shadowfall on consoles this week, and it includes a bunch of changes to Guerrilla Game's PlayStation 4 exclusive title. The new 1.30 patch for Killzone Shadowfall adds a range of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks, as well as adding support for the new upcoming multiplayer maps.

    One bug fix in patch 1.30 which I think a lot of players will be relieved to hear about is the spawn camera issue. This problem forced players to spawn in the opposite direction to the way the spawn camera was facing.

    Guerrilla Games have also made it easier for players to understand what weapons players are able to unlock in Killzone Shadowfall patch 1.30, and players will also see much smoother game flow at the end of a round.

    Killzone Shadowfall has failed to receive as large of a player base as games like Call of Duty or Halo, but despite this Guerrilla Games are putting in a lot of effort to provide players with an optimum online experience, new free content patches, and regular new DLC packs to keep things interesting for players.

    The latest DLC pack for Killzone Shadowfall is Intercept, and it will bring a brand new co-op game mode to multiplayer that rewards players with well coordinated teamwork and communication. Intercept released on June 24th for Killzone Shadowfall and can be picked up for $9.99. For season pass holders, the Intercept DLC can be downloaded for free.

  • Battlefield 4's Next DLC, Dragon's Teeth, will Release July 15

    BF4 Dragons Teeth July 15Despite us being a third of the way through July already, EA have still not officially given us the details on the release date for Battlefield 4's next DLC pack, Dragon's Teeth.

    However, a slip up on the EA Origin twitter account revealed what may be the planned date for the Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth DLC. The tweet read, "Save 20% on #BF4 Premium right now, then jump into #DragonsTeeth on July 15th."

    The tweet that mentioned the July 15th date for Dragon's Teeth was removed quickly, and soon replaced with the same message, with "Save 20% on #BF4 Premium right now, then jump into #DragonsTeeth 2 weeks early."

    We can gather three things from this information; firstly, someone working the Origin twitter account made a slip-up and is probably getting shouted at for it, secondly Battlefield Premium owners will be getting Dragon's Teeth on July 15th, and regular users will be able to purchase the Dragon's Teeth DLC two weeks later, which will be July 29th.

    If you purchased the $39.99 season pass, you should be in the clear for receiving the Dragon's Teeth DLC pack for free on July 15th, however as this date isn't official yet, there is a small chance the next DLC pack for Battlefield 4 may be pushed back a little.

    Either way, it's likely Dragon's Teeth for Battlefield 4 will be out this July, at least for any Battlefield 4 Premium members.

  • PS4 Slim Planned; Release Probably Far Off

    PS4 slimBack when the PlayStation 3 was first released, many believed that Sony were never going to catch up to the amount of units the Xbox 360 was selling. However, with the help of a new slimline variant of the PS3 with larger storage space and a cheaper price point, Sony managed to claw it's way to a position that put it neck and neck with Microsoft's Xbox 360.

    This time round, Sony have gained the clear sales advantage over Microsoft and the Xbox One, but just like before, anything could happen to give the losing console the chance to wing it into first place.

    If the Xbox One manages to get a price drop and a selection of strong console exclusives, sales for the console could easily start to catch up with that of the PlayStation 4, and if that happens, Sony are reportedly prepared to drop out a new PlayStation 4 slim variant, which like the PS3 slim, will most likely come with a slim line frame, a cheaper price point and a larger hard drive.

    It's likely a 'slim' version of the PlayStation 4 will release at some stage, but it also makes sense that a release will only kick in when sales start to slow down, and Xbox One sales start to pick up.

    Right now, the PlayStation 4 is drastically beating the Xbox One in terms of units sold, and this huge difference in sales numbers isn't likely to change any time soon. Perhaps we'll see a PS4 slim in a few years.

  • Gran Turismo 7 2014 Release unlikely

    gran turismo 7 2014Development for the first PS4-based Gran Turismo game is well under way, but it's unlikely the title will ever be released this year. A seventh Gran Turismo title was bound to happen, we've just entered a new generation of consoles, and Sony's front runner racing title needs to show it's face on the PlayStation 4 at some point or another, but so far it's looking more likely that Gran Turismo 7 will release some time in 2015.

    According to Kazunori Yamauchi, the next Gran Turismo title will not be a prologue like many previously expected it to be, and it will be as much of a fully featured game as any other Gran Turismo title has been thus far.

    Whilst a lot of work went on the sounds in Gran Turismo 6, the seventh title in the series will be a true milestone for the franchise, as a lot of work will be put into the overall gameplay mechanics, and Yamauchi explained that players should expect a lot of major game changes in GT 7.

    Gran Turismo 7 should also adopt the huge catalogue of cars already available on GT 6, however some of the cars may end up making it into the premium car catalogue.

    Gran Turismo has always been an amazing racing franchise, but with competitors like Drive Club and The Crew being released shortly, will GT 7 be able to live up to it's expectations? Hopefully, we'll find out soon enough.

  • Space Hulk: DeathWing Set to Be Warhammer 40K FPS Game

    space hulk deathwingGame developer Streum on Studio have just announced a brand new title with Games Workshops' Warhammer 40K universe, and from it's first reveal, things are looking pretty interesting. It’s certainly not the first time a Space Hulk game was announced, but it may be the first time a lot of people start to get truly excited. We've already seen many Warhammer adaptations, but none have quite been as action packed as we could have hoped.

    Warhammer Space Marine 40K was probably the first title that shared the potential a set of well-developed Warhammer games could have on the industry, so this new announcement by Streum on Studio for a brand new Warhammer game is very good to hear.

    The new Warhammer game has been named Space Hulk: DeathWing, and unlike other adaptations of the well known Warhammer board game, DeathWing will be an action packed first person shooter experience, and it is headed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

    In Space Hulk, players take control of a group of heavily armored Space Marines who adventure onto a space hulk, a word used to describe a huge collection of wrecked ships, asteroids and other space debris. These space hulks are usually crawling with Tyranid, a race of devouring space aliens.

    It sounds like a pretty good premise for a game, and hopefully we'll hear more about DeathWing leading up to it's planned 2015 release date.

  • PS4 GTA V will Gain Some Kind of Console Exclusive

    GTA V PS4 exclusiveIt seems a lot of developers are currently very happy to team up with Sony to offer various PlayStation 4 exclusives, including Bungie, the creators of Destiny, and now it even looks like Rockstar may be doing the same.

    Whilst the details are unclear, PlayStation's North American marketing vice president, John Koller. revealed to Kotaku that there would be some sort of PlayStation 4 exclusive GTA V content or 'perk' that no other platform would receive. When asked by Kotaku about PS4 exclusive content, Koller replied with "I don't think we announced anything publicly on that, but there will be." This is a pretty detail-void response, but it does tell us that something will be different about the PS4 GTA V experience.

    As far as Koller is concerned, Grand Theft Auto has also been a PlayStation based franchise, and Sony's relationship with Rockstar has always been strong. Whether or not we'll see some kind of content in-game exclusive to the PlayStation 4 is unclear at this point, but Koller is certainly suggesting that the PS4 version of GTA V will have something completely exclusive.

    Perhaps the only difference will be to do with graphical performance, or maybe PS4 players will receive an extra car for online play. Right now, we'll just have to wait it out till we hear more about the topic. Luckily, it shouldn't be too long before we hear more about Rockstar's 'exclusive' PS4 content, as Grand Theft Auto V is set for release this fall for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    We'll keep you updated as more information comes in about this.
