Further Tomb Raider action from Square Enix, this time the video focuses on how to beat people up in a lady-like fashion.
This is rather interesting, could the love-in between Activision’s Call Of Duty and the Xbox be over? Battlefield 4 was recently shown to a rather indiscreet crowd from Gamestop which Frank Gibeau confirmed to be true and went on to reveal Battlefield 4 will be released on Next Gen consoles.
So far, so predictable, but in January EA told investors to expect to see some Battlefield 4 stuff “in the next 90 days” and keen mathematicians will note that 90 days from January is April, the month in which we expect the next Xbox to be revealed.
I’m not sure the Internet can retain cohesian if the Xbox 720 is revealed with Battlefield 4 as its lead third party FPS rather than Call Of Duty.
Whilst ShopTo seem to think PS4 games will cost a tenner more, the Americans are sticking to the $60 price point, at least that’s according to Jack Tretton. He told CNBC that the PS4 “will offer games with prices ranging from $0.99 to the more traditional $60 range.”
Cole will not be returning for inFAMOUS: Second Son, MichaelM, a QA Manager from Sucker Punch’s official community forums said “Cole MacGrath’s legacy from the first two inFAMOUS titles ultimately concluded following the final events of inFAMOUS 2 and he will not be returning.”
New lead character Delsin “will have smoke powers in Second Son but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. He’s capable of so much more than you saw in the announce trailer.”
Anybody who has completed inFAMOUS 2 will know (and I’m going to be very vague here to avoid spoilers) of a teaser indicating that the story may not be over so perhaps Cole may make an appearance in the game.
“Watch Dogs is all about hyperconnectivity. To me, that has to mean all the time and anywhere. So yes, other people are out there all the time, when you don’t expect it. Whether you’re playing single-player or multi player it’s happening,” said Watch Dogs creative director Jonathan Morin.
What no one realised is that that PS4 demo had some of the ‘hyperconnectivty’ in it. At the end of the video a security camera is being hacked and that was another player, “There’s more detail to come on that,” confirmed Jonathon.
The box art for the game has also been revealed, it’s over there on the right.
The makers of Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit , Arkedo, have decided to shut up shop. “It has been decided to disband the team when there still was enough money to get good conditions for everyone, rather than replace permanent positions with interns and a bad atmosphere,” wrote co-founder Aurelien Regard.
The studio has finished two further titles which will be released before the doors finally close.
More closures with 1Up.com, Gamespy.com and UGO.com to be wound up by Ziff Davis who recently acquired the IGN network of sites. The company is selling off its sports website and “IGN’s role going forward will be to broadcast and cover a variety of eSports events.”
And Finally, the rather delightful prospect of the original creator of Sim City, Will Wright, interviewing Ocean Quigley the Creative Director of the new SimCity.
