    The staff at Controller Creator was anxiously listening to the Xbox One reveal today, and we were very impressed with the new controller and console!

    We are so excited that we have already begun creating a game plan to create incredible Xbox One shells and Xbox One mods!

    What else was announced at the reveal? Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to be released on the new console in addition to the title’s Xbox 360 and PS3 release. EA Sports also fully demoed their Ignite engine, which utilizes Microsoft’s new hardware for their sports title as well as for more Battlefield.

  • Watch Dogs Looks to Bring the Sandbox to the Next Generation

    watchdogs

    Ubisoft is looking to get a jump into the next generation of gaming with their highly anticipated title Watch Dogs. Watch Dogs is an open play style game that has the look of a Rockstar styled Sandbox game. This new open world game takes complete advantage of the next generation consoles abilities. Watch Dogs takes place in the not too distant future in a city that looks a lot like Chicago. From what we have seen so far the game revolves around the character Aiden Pearce who is a vigilante and is involved in what has been described as information warfare.

    The story of Watch Dogs puts the player in a world where all information is connected and data and access is a currency that has a value that is worth killing and dying for. In the city that the player free roams there is a new super computer system that basically has access and can control every piece of technology within the city limits. This super computer, “CtOS" (Central Operating System), has information on all persons and activities that are happening at any given moment. The player, Aiden Pearce, is a super-efficient hacker that will learn how to access more and more of the CtOC to pursue his vigilante purposes. Aiden is supposedly to use the CtOS to bring his own form of justice to the streets. He can listen in on calls, intercept video feeds, intercept text messages, and even control vehicles to get the job done. Aiden is not only a hacker but he apparently is a bit of a ninja as well based on the actions and fight scenes that have been made available. The way the character moves is fluid and very parkour while he also appears to have all the training necessary to use some pretty heavy grade tactical equipment.

    The overall look of Watch Dogs seems like one of the assassins from Ubisoft's other games have somehow made their way into the world of GTA. The Game looks exciting and the potential for open ended action in a huge detailed city is always a plus. The concept behind using an all connected CtOS to gather information to bring vigilante justice to the dark streets is epic. How you utilize Aiden’s hacking abilities can determine if you come in guns blazing or keep to the shadows. Watch Dogs has created a lot of interest out on the net and we can’t wait to see how the next generation systems will show off this possible classic.

  • EA Will Keep the Star Wars Games Coming

    EA and Disney have decided to put their heads together to keep the Star Wars series as a relevant platform for game productions in the years to come. EA and Disney signed, "a new multi-year exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish globally new games based on Star Wars characters and story lines." EA stands to take hold of one of the most popular story platforms available through this move. Games have been produced based on the Star Wars universe for almost as long as we have been playing video games as a whole and it seems only right to keep the heritage alive.

    After the agreement was signed EA now looks forward to “develop and publish new Star Wars titles for a core gaming audience, spanning all interactive platforms and the most popular game genres, while Disney will retain certain rights to develop new titles within the mobile, social, tablet and online game categories." It also appears that EA is wasting no time to get things moving because they went on to reveal that EA already has 3 major development houses already working on the next group of games. The production and development teams that were named as “already at work” are Mass Effect developer BioWare, Dead Space developer Visceral, and Battlefield developer DICE.  Based on these development groups’ track records we can expect some serious titles with the name Star Wars attached to them in the future.

    EA Labels president Frank Gibeau spoke and related the excitement level that this agreement has introduced for EA. Gibeau stated, “Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe,” Gibeau said. “Three of our top studios will fulfill that dream, crafting epic adventures for Star Wars fans. DICE and Visceral will produce new games, joining the BioWare team which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise. The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay.” We can look forward to the new Star Wars games from EA to utilize the new Frostbite 3 development engine. By throwing their newest and best at the task EA is proving their commitment to the Star Wars endeavor. With this amazing Frostbite engine already being set as the ground work for development we will be sure to see some stunning graphics, crisp gameplay, and great environments in the new titles.  This is all great news for those who are fans of the Star Wars universe and we can expect, through this collaboration between Disney and EA, A bright future of Star Wars games.

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts Announced

    CoD-ghosts-moddedcontrollers

     

    Activision has announced and confirmed that the next edition to the Call of Duty franchise will be called Call of Duty: Ghosts. Activision has also stated that their new game will be revealed on May 21st at the world wide Xbox Reveal event. Currently there are few hard facts about the new game. Activision has, however, posted a grandiose teaser trailer on the Call of Duty website that depicts varying ancient warrior classes while talking about the importance of wearing masks. The teaser is a real time commercial and gives nothing away in terms of the game itself. The new Call of Duty had been expected to have been called call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 but we all know that there has been a divergence between the 2 titles and stories. Activision states, Call of Duty: Ghosts is meant to be the COD game for "the next generation."

    The executive producer of Infinity Ward, Mark Rubin, stated "We saw the console transition as the perfect opportunity to start a new chapter for Call of Duty. So we're building a new sub-brand, a new engine, and a lot of new ideas and experiences for our players. We can't wait to share them with our community." Sharing with the community is exactly what Activision did not do with their teaser. Activision has also been put on record stating that the game will feature, “a riveting all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting and cast of characters, all powered by a new, next generation Call of Duty engine that redefines the series for the next generation.”

    The only thing that we can really take away from the trailer is that Simon “Ghost” Riley from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will play some type of role. There seem to be two camps of thought concerning Riley. There are those who feel that since it essentially his face on the box that we can expect him to play a major role, possibly the main character. The other group of thought is that Riley will not play a major role and that his identity is being used to set a concept for another elite group of warriors.

    It has also been rumored that the setting for Call of Duty: ghost will be in the future similar to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. If this is the case then we can expect that the weapons will be based on current technology but the story itself will be based on a fictional projection of current events. What we do know about this anticipated title is that it will be on full display May 21st and will hit the shelves on November 5th. For a look at the teaser trailer please visit the Call of Duty: Ghosts website.

  • Next Xbox

    Rumors and stories have been flying around cyberspace about the new Microsoft Xbox. These rumors vary from the actual system pictures to its very name itself. This is understandable because as the E3 approaches and the Holidays loom we can’t help but wonder what this next generation of gaming consoles will have in store.

    Custom-Xbox360-controller.jpg

    We know at this point that Microsoft will be releasing the Xbox 720 for this coming holiday season and we also know that Microsoft’s main competitor Sony will be releasing the PS4 in at least one territory at the same time. We can expect the traditional console war to be in full effect. There will be a special “launch Event” for the new Xbox on May 21st that will answer the questions that have been poised thus far.  There was hope that some information would have been released at this year’s GDC but Microsoft remained tight lipped. Microsoft has flopped back and forth with their expected release times and has decided on a “launch Event” to avoid presenting their product during the circus week of E3.

    Rumors suggest that the new Xbox will have a similar architecture as to the PS4. It has however been stated that the Xbox will have a significantly less powerful graphics processor than the PS4 which supports the idea that the New Xbox will be less about games this time around and more about everything else. Knowing this, it is also interesting that the new Xbox will also have the next generation of the Kinect. Microsoft has also patented some type of 3d projection technology they have named 'Fortaleza.' Fortaleza, by description seems to be a technology that will project aspects of gameplay into the environment around the player for a more immersive experience.  As far as the standard input device goes, the 360 controllers are now a classic and we can expect that Microsoft won’t try to fix what isn’t broken and keep the design the same.

    The last rumor that needs to be addressed is this ridiculous idea of an “always on” Xbox. It has been suggested that Microsoft will make the new Xbox inoperable without an internet connection. Why? The answer is GREED. It has been suggested that Microsoft intends to use this “always on” scheme to attempt to kill the used games industry. As gamers if we purchase a title we should be able to sell or trade it at our leisure.  This type of brazen consumer manipulation will not fly as the internet has been set ablaze with the outrage that this rumor has sparked. As a long time Xbox gamer myself I have to say that I am personally disappointed that a rumor like this has even surfaced. I will also state that if this rumor turns to fact at any point in the near future that I will be moving my tent to the Sony camp. As just 1 of many I can predict that if Microsoft is not extremely careful in how this area is handled they have the potential to deliver a stillborn console.
