Most gamers can agree that Microsoft’s Xbox One used and lending game policy is more confusing than it should be. Since the start of E3, Sony has seen a golden opportunity to take jabs at Microsoft’s unclear stance on the subjects.
Nothing rings truer than the hilarious video Sony released on youtube regarding how to lend PlayStation 4 games to their friends.
Up top is a parody video that was uploaded onto by YongYea, which shows how “easy” it is to lend games to your friends on the Xbox one.
Everything seems fine until the original Xbox One owner would like his game back. Sadly, this video on some level, this video is correct.
Remedy took the stage to promote their new title, which is an exclusive to Xbox One, called Quantum Break.
The demo they were showing was a portion of the game that was using in-game graphics engine. The game follows some sort of cop/government worker who has the ability to freeze time. And by judging by the demo, the visuals are stunning.
Sunset Overdrive is the first Insomniac title ever to grave a Microsoft System. The game looks like an over the top online sandbox game, where some kind of alien race has taken over the planet, and the main characters use ridiculous parkour to save the earth.
Microsoft has announced a brand new Xbox 360 redesign, which strongly resembles the Xbox One’s very boxy look. In addition to the new look, the company has confirmed that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get two free games a month, much like the PlayStation Plus.
The two games that will be available starting on August 1 will be Assassin Creed IIand Halo 3. Other games included were Grand Theft Auto IV, and new unannounced titles World of Tanks and Max: Curse of the Brotherhood.
Last month, the gaming world watched the Xbox One being unveiled. One of the big moments everyone was excited about was the tease that Activision had promised for their newest Call of Duty: Game: Call of Duty: Ghosts. Because the title is scheduled to launch around the day of the next-generation systems, the company was keen on showing off the visuals.
The display was — for many — a disappointment.
On the eve of E3, Activision decided to have a 30 minute presentation for Call of Duty: Ghosts. And many were hoping that this was going to be the day for the publisher to blow us away with new gameplay and visuals. (more…)
By now you’ve heard the streets of Steelport are somehow going to be more insane then the previous Saints Row games.
The developer, Volition, built a demo for PAX East attendees which featured aliens, superpowers, a Dubstep gun and more. Up top is that very demo that was shown at the convention.
While the action looks chaotic, and at times ridiculously fun, I’m not entirely sure this fourth installment will hold my attention for very long. Volition clearly wanted to step up the pandemonium atmosphere that they built on from the third version of the series, but it also looks like they neglected creating a lot of fresh things, including the map.
Saints Row IV will be out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on August 20.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is undoubtedly the biggest annual event for video games. It’s where all the game publishers and hardware manufacturers unveil their new products of the future. So this next piece of news is a little bit of a shocker, and while it makes sense, the report came out of left field.
Nintendo, who’s been at the convention since the beginning, has decided to change it up a little bit when it comes to their E3 strategy. The Japanese-based company has determined that the press conference that happens before the show floor opens, isn’t the best way to market their products. So instead, they’re going to replace that with other smaller events throughout the year, along with their Nintendo Direct feeds. (more…)
The next-generation Xbox will be unveiled on May 21 at the Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington, according to invites sent to the press today.
“A New Generation Revealed” which the invite is entitled, confirms Don Mattrick, President of Interactive Entertainment Business of Microsoft, along with the Xbox Team, will present “a special unveiling.” Which can only be one thing, a brand-new system. (more…)
Two great minds from both the video-game and film industry will take the stage together during D.I.C.E.. It is a convention in Las Vegas that is produced by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, that brings together some of the best people in the “interactive entertainment industry.”
On February 6th, Gabe Newell, cofounder of the gaming studio Valve Corporation (Half-Life, Left 4 Dead) will have a discussion in front of a live audience with film director and writer J.J. Abrams. (more…)
