  • PS4 Will Have a Massive Over Xbox One By 2019

    Not including the few months of holiday’s season where the Xbox one price dropped once again, PlayStation 4 has sold better so far this generation.

    A recent report from GamesIndustry.biz citing a Strategy report that Sony will be the “unquestioned leader” over the first five years of this current generation of gaming.

    The firm’s connected Home devices report that the PS4 "is on path to reproduce the success of the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii." They predict that Sony will enjoy a worldwide installed user base of 80 million by 2019. Further notes states that the PS4’s first-year sale is very close to the uber-dominant PS2, PS4 selling 18.5 million and PS2 selling 20.1 million whereas the PS3 sold only 10.6 million during its first year.

    On the other hand Xbox One has sold 12.4 million on its first year out selling the Xbox 360 which sold 10.4 million, which faced similar challenges to the PS3. The lowest sale going to the Wii U which sold a low 5.9 million but is "staging a modest comeback" thanks to first-party software.

    Eric Smith the senior strategy Analytics stated:

    "Despite reports to the contrary, the game console market is not dead. Core gamers have moved faster to this current generation than in any previous generation. The main difference in this generation is that casual gamers who bought a Wii are remaining largely on the side lines as free-to-play casual games and midcore games on tablets and smartphones have captured this segment of consumers."

  • Ubisoft: Problems with Assassin’s Creed Unity Made Them Stronger

    Every cloud has a silver lining, even the blackest ones.

    Ubisoft is making another addition to the Assassins creed entry for 2015 and it’ll use the same engine that powered Unity.

    Unity as many know had major issues when it first launched, which CEO of Ubisoft Yves Guillemot explained:

    When you [build a new engine and tools], it's painful for all the group, and everything has to be recalibrated. And with [Unity], a few things were not perfect when the game was launched."

    Guillemot also added "steps are sometimes painful" but they will allow the team to improve the overall quality of the product. Yves was very confident that these problems were lessons learned last year, and that they will be able to take the once-revered series.

    He said "At launch, the game had suffered from frame rate issues and bugs which have had a strong resonance among the community. We are blessed to have such passionate and committed fans, and we will always strive to earn their trust and support. We took that situation very seriously, and our teams have been working relentlessly since launch and have provided constant and direct progress updates to our fans."

    The rumor is that the next arc will be taking place during Victoria London, and here’s hoping that it will be an awesome game.

     

  • Destiny: Top 10 Weapons Used by Players according to Bungie

    Loot is what drives Destiny. With complaints regarding the repetitive and limited content, what keeps players coming back for long gaming sessions is the loot; the exotics and the legendaries we want our friends to be jealous of.

    Regardless of the difference in classes the game is solely a first person shooter with all or at least most emphasis being placed on weapons. Considering that, it was I guess natural of Bungie to show off what guns are favorite amongst the gamers.

    Bungie’s chief resident researcher aka Dr. Bunson Honeydew wrote, "Weapon use in Destiny is pretty diverse and follows a very fat 'long tail' distribution. The guns on these lists are indeed awesome but a lot of players are finding that other, more obscure weapons better fit their tactical needs or their personal play styles."

    So following is a list of the top 10 weapons being used by players in Destiny’s PVE.

    1. Vision of Confluence
    2. Khvostov 7G-02
    3. Cydonia-AR3
    4. The Stranger's Rifle
    5. Marshal-A
    6. Suros Regime
    7. Marshal-A1
    8. Atheon's Epilogue
    9. Shingen-E
    10. Galahad-E

    The next set are the top 10 weapons being used by players in the PVE section of Destiny called the Crucible:

    1. SUROS Regime
    2. Vex Mythoclast
    3. Thorn
    4. Atheon's epilogue
    5. Shingen-E
    6. Cydonia-AR3
    7. The Last Word
    8. Galahad-E
    9. Up For Anything
    10. The Stranger's Rifle

    There you have it guys. Did your favorite make the cut? If not do let us know which combo is your favorite for causing having in both Destiny’s PVE and PVP modes.

  • Resident Evil Remake Dated, Priced

    Capcom has announced that a Resident Evil Remake will release on January 20, 2015. The publishers are now calling it the "definitive version" of the first game that started an acclaimed game franchise.

    The price as revealed will be $20 for all platforms, which include both current and previous generation of consoles - PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and also the PC. For the people who haven’t been paying attention to gaming new or have forgotten this is indeed the remake of the HD re-iteration of the 2002’s Resident Evil REmake that was released on the GameCube.

    Simply put this is a remake of a remake of a classic. In addition to this Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will hit consoles and PC somewhere in 2015, and a recent report has hinted at Resident Evil 7. So I guess the Resident Evil franchise is really trying to make a strong comeback. I for one hope for its best because despite doing poorly at certain points, this franchise is still one my favorites.

    It has finally been confirmed. Ubisoft just announced that Far Cry 4 will be available on 18th November in North America and 20th November in Europe for PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

    As far as we know, the story will be taking place in a fictional region in Himalaya named Kryat, "a breathtaking, perilous and wild region of the Himalayas, struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king."

    Like all the other games in the series the players will be provided with a range of guns and vehicles to experience and it is believed that hunting will make a return. Dan Hay, executive producer, had this to say:

    "Following the success of Far Cry 3, we wanted to take the franchise to the next level and create a game that will surprise players and exceed fans' expectations. Given the unique setting, we feel Far Cry 4 will stand out as a top first-person shooter and we're eager to reveal more about the game in the coming months."

    As is the trend, the pre-order bonus decided. Players who pre-order the game will receive “free upgrade to the Limited Edition which includes Hurk’s Redemption, a series of three action-packed single-player missions featuring the popular character Hurk from Far Cry 3’s DLC. The Limited Edition also includes Hurk’s signature harpoon gun called ‘The Impaler’.”

  • Destiny Close to Release: Lead Designer Talks Changes

    destiny

    A lot has changed since Destiny was conceived. Initially a deal between Bungie and Activision (part of the lawsuit between Jason West and Vince Zampella) stated that Destiny would be an Xbox timed exclusive.

    Now Destiny will be released simultaneously on PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on the 9th of September 2014. Not only that, seems that Destiny will be now supporting the PlayStation family more as the beta for the game will first launch on the PlayStation and there are also news of exclusive content and DLC.

    Lars Bakken, design lead, answered in a recent interview the changes that happened to Destiny over time and what the vision of the team is for this game.

    Jones laid out what these core pillars of the game are. It's one thing to say these are the things we care about, these are the things that should never change, it's more than a disc in your drive, it's a place you want to go and be in and spend time in, those things are so important. It's taking the embodiment of those things and creating them into a game that still fits within those pillars but is awesome in its own right.

    What have we been doing? We've been trying to fit within those pillars but still make this amazing experience and do things no-one's done before, and try to innovate in ways that people will play it and go, wow, 'I didn't even realise it was going to be awesome to be in a public space and start shooting this thing and get into trouble and realize a dude could come and help me out.'

    "That happened to me over the weekend. I helped out a dude who was lower level. We've been playing from our home PS4s and it was just an amazing experience. I talked to that guy the next day and he was like, 'I couldn't believe when you showed up because I was totally going to lose this public event, and you showed up and kicked the crap out of this Fallen Captain that was about to kill me.'

    Those kinds of experience just happen randomly. You can't control that stuff. That's one of the cooler experiences that happens in Destiny. It's been hard, yeah. Hitting that promise of activities for every mood, which we've hit on multiple times. You've heard us say that so many times, but it's true at this point.

    If I'm feeling in the mood to shoot other Guardians in the face, I have that option. If I just want to upgrade my current full-auto rifle because I love it, and I look at it and I'm like, 'I can't wait to get to node three on this thing,' I go and do a patrol, and I hang out in the Cosmodrome or hang out on the moon and I just freeroam, do whatever I want to do and take jobs from the city and just shoot aliens in the face for hours and have a good time doing it.

    It's been executing on those things and making them into what we would consider a Bungie quality game and not compromising on that.”

    Work on Destiny started back in 2009 and was conceived by Jason Jones and supported by Activision’s millions of dollars. When it comes out in September 2014, the game will have been in development for over 5 years. This game is the most expensive game in creation till date, with a reported 500 million dollars being put behind it. It is also expected to have a 10 year life cycle this game is something to be excited for to say the least.

  • Titanfall leads software sales still PS4 outsells Xbox One

    PS4-vs-Xbox-One

    Things are not looking all too well for Microsoft. Granted that this indeed is a marathon and not a race, the gap Sony is creating seems hard to catch up to.

    Titanfall obtained the top spot in March software sales. There was little doubt that the sales for this game would be high, but they destroyed any doubts pitted against them. Needless to say Microsoft had put their hopes on Titanfall to increase sales of Xbox One. At the very least I guess they expected to outsell the PS4 in March upon Titanfall’s release.

    "In March 2014, Sony's PS4 led hardware sales for the third month in a row," said Liam Callahan, a video game analyst with NPD Group. Microsoft has announced that it has sold 311,000 units in the US in March, and that in total 5 million Xbox One have been sold to date. But this number only represents Xbox Ones sold to retailers worldwide, and not the number of Xbox Ones purchased by consumers. Even though Sony lead the sales, they did not reveal the number of PS4’s sold in March alone.

    Why this is bad news for Microsoft is pretty self-explanatory. Microsoft had bundled Titanfall with the Xbox One in the use at a price point of $499.99, same price just the consoles are sold at normally. In the UK, retailers had also cut the price of the Xbox One unofficially by 30 pounds in March. This was followed up by the price cut on the Titanfall bundle which was priced at 350 pounds, around 80 pounds less than the retail price of the console alone.  The fact that this couldn’t push the console is definitely disconcerting.

    Titanfall is still selling well, second highest selling game on the Xbox One, and is currently holding the top spot in March’s software sales followed by the PS4 exclusive Infamous: Second Son. Despite the difference in numbers being sold, both consoles are doing amazing compared to their predecessors.

    As Callahan reported, "PS4 and Xbox One continue to see success with cumulative sales of the two consoles through the first five months currently totaling more than double that of their predecessors, the PS3 and Xbox 360."

  • TitanFall: Expedition DLC Detailed

    titanfall_63392

    So the first batch of DLC is being released for Titanfall. The reveal came at PAX East just a few days back. The DLC is called Expedition and will be released in May 2014. The DLC will include 3 new maps to the Frontier: Runoff, Swamplands and Wargames. This is what was posted about the DLC on Titanfall’s official website.

    In the wake of the Battle of Demeter, IMC Expeditionary Forces travel deep into Frontier space to recover from their recent defeat. On an uncharted world, the IMC begin construction of a new fleet operations base, using newly acquired water collection and filtration plants to support the new base. When drainage operations reveal ancient ruins and artifacts of an unknown origin in a nearby swamp, Spyglass activates an archaeological team to investigate the site. To maintain battle readiness at the new base, IMC Pilots use simulation pods to train for anticipated Militia raids, based on lessons learned in Angel City and IMC Airbase Sierra.

    Titanfall Expedition is the first of three new content packs with each pack available for $9.99. For fans looking to get all three content packs while saving a few bucks, the Titanfall Season Pass is the way to go. Available for a one-time price of $24.99*, the Titanfall Season Pass is available for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC and delivers all three content packs as soon as they become available.

  • Watch Dogs Official Release Date + Ubisoft Denies Downgrading Game’s Visuals

    watch_dogs_wallpapers_hd (3)

    Watch Dogs is easily one of the most anticipated games of this year, despite its delay. So many gamers were disappointed because of the delay but Ubisoft did it for the right reason. According to them the game was not ready yet. Considering the whole Battlefield 4 debacle, Ubisoft definitely made the right choice.

    Well at least we have some good news. A trailer was published on Eurogamer which revealed that Watch Dogs will be released on May 27th 2014. However in classic fashion the trailer was pulled down. But Ubisoft has come out and confirmed that May 27th is actually the official release date. So the game was delayed a total of 6 months from its original release date (November 2013).

    But it seems that a new issue now plagues Watch Dogs. There seems to a footage out that compares the gameplay vidoes shown when the game was revealed vs what is supposed to be “actual” gameplay video. What the video suggests is that the game is going to look worse than what was shown.

    Ubisoft has fortunately come forward and denied the allegations that they had to tone down the visuals of the game to finish it within the short period of time. Tess Vilyn, Ubisoft Benelux PR and events manager, addressed these allegations via a series of Twitter updates such as this:

    "Of course it is not downgraded at all. It's a true next-gen game for sure...for sure.."

    This controversy began this GIF was posted to NeoGAF forums, which shows a massively visually downgraded police chase segment from Watch Dogs. So much so that it actually seems impossible. Tess Vilyn stands by what he said about the game, and for our sake I hope what he says is all true:

    "Believe me the game is not downgraded. That would just be a bit ridiculous. I saw the game it looks incredible. It looks what a next gen should look like."

    Watch Dogs will release 27th May for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Not much longer before this matter is settled once and for all.
