    dead or alive 5 last round - CopyIt looks like everybody is jumping on the 'port-your-games-to-the-new-gen' band wagon, including Team Ninja, who have confirmed that they plan to bring Dead or Alive 5: Last Round to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, despite it being a game that released two years ago.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will come with a range of improvements, including graphical changes, and most likely a frame rate and resolution increase for the PS4 and the Xbox One.

    Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round will release for the PS3 and Xbox 360 too, however only a digital version will be available for last gen consoles, whilst both a physical and a digital version will be available for the Xbox One and PS4.

    Whilst there is no concrete release date for Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round, Team Ninja have mentioned that it will make it's way to the world in Spring 2015 for all four Sony and Microsoft consoles currently in the spotlight.

    DOA 5: Last Round will include characters that didn't make it into the original release, including Ryu Hayabusa, perhaps one of the most popular characters in the entire franchise. In summary, the full character lineup for Last Round will include Ayane, Bass, Bayman, Brad Wong, Kokoro Hayabusa, Hayate, Kasumi, Rig, Momiji, Leon, Lisa, Tina, Jann Lee, Hitomi, Leifang, Christie, Eliot, Leon, Gen Fu, Zack, Helena, Marie Rose, Phase 4, Nyotengu as well as Sarah Bryant, Akira, Pai and Jacky from the Virtua Fighter series.

  • Minecraft for PS4 Has Gone Live

    minecraft ps4 - CopyAt long last, the PlayStation 4 port for Minecraft has finally been put up for sale after months of development, planning and delayed releases. 4JStudios, the development team responsible for the port, have been working on the PS4 and Xbox One ports before the consoles were even available to the public. However, Minecraft can now be picked up from the PSN store for $19.99.

    If PS3 owners already have a copy of Minecraft on their PlayStation 3, they can 'upgrade' to the new PS4 version of Minecraft for just $4.99. Unfortunately, the promotion is not available for those that have purchased the physical copy of Minecraft for the PlayStation 3 in the past, however going forward all PS3 physical copies of Minecraft will now have pre-packaged codes that will players a $14.99 discount on the PS4 version of the game.

    Minecraft has been planned for the Xbox One as well, however due to a few issues the release has been slightly delayed. The Xbox One version of Minecraft will be released this Friday, and the same $19.99 full price and $4.99 upgrade price will be available on the Xbox One too.

    For those unaware, the new generation ports for Minecraft have a bunch of new features not supported in either the PS3 or Xbox 360 version, including worlds that are 36 times larger than the last-gen versions, better render distance and improved graphics.

    If you're an avid Minecraft fan and enjoy playing the game on your console, the $4.99 upgrade price should be something you may want to consider, as the extra world space will definitely come in handy.

  • Listing for Mass Effect on the PS4 Appears on Amazon

    mass effect ps4I don't know how it happens, but once again somebody has made a mistake on Amazon and has accidentally posted up a product listing that really shouldn't be there. Recently, a product listing for Mass Effect for the PlayStation 4 was found on Amazon, however after it was shared across the web, it was shortly removed from the website, confirming that it shouldn't have really been there in the first place.

    Whether or not it was an accident, or a smartly placed marketing attempt by BioWare, it's clear that something Mass Effect related might just be coming to the PlayStation 4 soon. The description for the Mass Effect product listing on Amazon wasn't filled with much details, so we have been left to speculate.

    It's very unlikely the listing was relating to the new Mass Effect game as there is still a lot of work that needs to be done before the game is ready for promotion. Instead, I personally think the listing could be suggesting a new PS4 port for the original Mass Effect game.

    If i'm correct, then perhaps we could expect a full port of the entire original trilogy to next gen consoles. If we get an HD remake on top of that too, I'd be most impressed, but that may be pushing it a little bit.

    Oddly, the game only mentioned a PlayStation 4 release for the product listing, but this could simply be because the listing was not fully completed before it was put online. The release date for the listing was December 31st 2014, which sounds like a rough placeholder date. Hopefully we'll hear something from BioWare about this.

  • 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.
