China Flag

 

Just last month, it was reported that Microsoft was the first foreign company to release a video game system in China in 14-years. Now it looks like the console’s rival, the PlayStation 4, is set to make a impact in the world’s largest country.

 

The business site Bloomberg is reporting that Sony plans on shipping the PS4 sometime this December in China, thanks to a filing that was discovered on a official Chinese government website. Bloomberg also expects Sony is shipping 200,000 systems annually to the communist nation. A spokesperson from Sony did confirm the filing to the country’s government, but suggested the production amount is different.

Xbox One Dashboard Themes In Development

Xbox OS

 

For whatever reason, the ability to customize or theme a system’s dashboard has been a desired feature among gamers. The last generation of consoles had this simple feature, but for whatever reason, these new system’s didn’t. However, that’s been changing. Nintendo had an update for the 3Ds to allow themes, as well as Sony’s Vita. Sony also announced themes were coming to the PlayStation 4. That put Microsoft as the only company not implementing some sort of customizations with their game OS. Though it seems like they’re already underway fixing that.

 

Newly Xbox boss Phil Spencer has heard the concerns, and confirmed that themes, along with backgrounds are on the way for the Xbox One, thanks to his interview on the Inner Circle Podcast

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Pushed Back

Hotline_Miami_2_logo

 

One of my favorite games of 2012 was the indie-title Hotline Miami. It featured intense, fast, overhead gameplay mechanics, which was mixed in with 16-bit graphics, and a top-notch soundtrack. So, it’s no secret that I’ve been anticipating the sequel for a while now. But unfortunately I’m going to be forced to wait a little longer then I expect.

 

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number won’t be available to purchase until late 2014 or sometime in early 2015, which would mean it’s been pushed back by a few months. According to the official Twitter account for the game, the sequel isn’t quite polished enough, so some tweaks are needed.

GTA V PS4 Screen

 

Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 is gonna be huge. A I don’t mean from a sales standpoint. A user from a GTA V forum, captured a screenshot that shows the space required on the HDD in order to play the remastered version of the open-world game on the PS4. A a mandatory 50GB install is the necessary space needed.

 

If this is indeed correct, and I’m sure it is, than that gives this version of GTA V the new title belt as “the biggest install for a video game to date.” The previous champion will be Wolfenstein: The New Order, which was released a few months ago, with a 47GB install.

NBA 2K15 Face Scan Feature Is Terrifying

NBA 2K15 face scan

One of the cooler additions to NBA 2K15 is its feature to allow gamers to scan their face into the game… when it works. While the technology is nothing new in the video game world (I remember 2003′s Tony Hawk’s Underground doing it), it’s still a neat concept. And with the advances in hardware, I expect great results… and we do have that in NBA 2K15… when it again, works.

 

An imgur has appeared online, which has a series of images from how terrifying some of the user faces can be. Be forewarned, you’ll be disturbed and we take no responsibility if you fall into a deep depression.

2K-Logo

Last year, 2K Sports announced they were halting development on their MLB 2K series.

We have decided not to renew our MLB 2K series for 2014,” read a statement from a company earlier in the year. “We are very proud of the achievements made by the MLB 2K team and look forward to their contributions to our future titles.”

Many outlets, rightfully so, took it as if the company was abandoning baseball altogether. We’ve might have spoken too soon.

Super Mario Bros. Hoodie for $99

Stylinonline has a Super Mario hoodie that you’re either going to love or hate. The back of the hoodie sweatshirt, as you can tell, is the start screen of the old original Nintendo game Super Mario Bros..The front of the hoodie is a little bit more subtle — it has a small clipping of the title screen, along with the tiny embedded controller patch, and lastly the box cover art on the left chest of the jersey

The designer of this geek hoodie is Torrel, who only produced a limited supply of 1000, with each sleeve having authenticity sewn, including what number the sweatshirt is.

The price of the hoodie is rather expensive, and will set you back about $100, but it is available to purchase right now.

This hoodie is definitely cool, but I’m not entirely sure I could wear it everywhere. I think it would be mostly for gaming gatherings like conventions, but I’m not sure if I would wear it on a night in the town. It’s not that I’m against showing off my geekyness, it’s just the sweatshirt is a little too vibrate, and while wearing it, I think I would be giving off the impression that I want to be recognized everywhere I go.

After the break, check out more images of the hoodie.
