Ubisoft Wasn’t to Re-Connect with PC gamers

ubisoft-logo

Ubisoft has just recently updated  their Uplay Store catalogue which now features  third-party Publishers, The plan next for them is to compete in the digital market of gaming, publishers understand that in order to be successful in the Pc gaming community they need to improve its perception PC gamers have of them.

Uplay director, Stephanie Perotti has said Uplay and all its partners are committed to the PC community saying “We are always seeking to improve. We took a lot of that feedback on board. With every game on PC we are improving. Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed III on PC were very high quality.”

I’m not surprised by this move of Ubisoft with nex-Gen consoles basically becoming mini Pc machines, publishers won’t have the constraints that now gen consoles have when porting PC games to console, this may lead to actually something big down the road, maybe online multiplayer?

It’s still good to see and know Ubisoft is not jumping the nex-gen console ban wagon as of yet, and still have the Pc gaming community in mind.

PlayStation 4 Is Officially Announced Along With Future Game Releases At Sony’s PlayStation Event

Yesterday Sony Entertainment gave us the scope on the PlayStation 4, Lead architect Mark Cerny presented and went of the specs of the Nex-Gen console staying the goal is to “free developers form technological barriers.” With a history of 30 years in the gaming industry Mark Cerny has seen it all.

In the beginning of the event Cerny got into detail of what’s really inside the console, the Ps4 will use the X86 CPU with 8GB memory and a local hard drive; it will also use the APU technology and GDDR5 memory that is found in high end graphics cards.

One of main focal points Cerny and the rest of the developers that spoke put a lot of emphasis on Simple, Immediate, Social, Integrated and personalized as words to describe the Ps4. The first major thing announced was that the console has a secondary chip for uploading and downloading in the background as you play, Example if you’re playing a game and you want to record it all you have to do is press a button on the controller and it will record that very second, that same chip also lets you play Digital games as it’s being downloaded.

Sony’s Ps vita will be compatible with the Ps4, letting the gamer switch between the two without starting your game over, somewhat like the Wii U controller. The social aspect of ps4 looks to be impressive as well players can now tune in to fellow gamers and watches them playing through there game, players can even ask there spectators for help, going as far as giving the spectator the ability to take control of the game. All which Sony’s Anderw House said will create “Experiences that surpass gamer’s wildest expectations.”

From there capabilities of the Ps4 graphical prowess were shown in demo reels of real time graphic engines like the Unreal engine 4, square enix luminous engine, and Capcom’s impressive Panta Rhei engine, also shown was the improvements of the Move and motion stick and how it could be used in the Ps4, with games allowing the player to create things in full scale 3D.

The final hour of the Event was basically dedicated to the games that are going to be released when the Ps4 hits. Games like Sucker Punches Infamous: Second Son and Bungie’s Destiny didn’t have actually in game footage, but developers Guerrilla Games Killzone: Shadow Fall and Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs had on hand real time game demos live.

In the end Sony’s PlayStation Event was what I expected it to be and that is the official announcement of the PS4. From top-tier exclusives from its best studios to multiplatform experiences from respected publishers and developers in the industry, the Ps4 looks to start off with a bang.

Here are the gameplay footage of the new Killzone and a brand new Watch Dogs game footage.

Take-Two Interactive Has Officially Taken Over The WWE Game Franchise!

Take-Two interactive has purchase the publishing rights for the WWE game franchise this is a big move for 2k Sports, by acquiring such a well-known franchise they have place themselves as one of the stronger if not the strongest sports video gaming company as of late. The WWE games has a huge following which started back when WWF WrestleMania 2000 was released for the N64, for those of you who are new to wrestling games and its we are talking about roughly around 12 years of consistent wrestling game releases, so you can imagine the following it has establish during the years .

wwe_default

Take-Two/2k Sports is at the helm of future WWE games

So when THQ stated they would be closing shop, fans immediately wanted to know 2 things.

#1. Will one of the bigger companies like Activison, Ubisoft ,EA try to make a move on the rights.

#2. Will they keep the same developers?

Both questions were answered when Take-Two announced that they would be purchasing the rights and keeping Yuke’s as the development team. Keeping Yuke’s is the real gem to this, they have been the developers of all the WWE games so bringing them along was a must. This move wasn’t surprising to me 2k is known for making the best financial decision for themselves, and they know starting from scratch with another development team would hurt the series’ momentum and cost them in sells.

WWE 13 was widely well-received and to not build on that success would be a bad move. But like I said Take-Two/2k Sports are aware of this and I assume will not interfere with the games future development too much and with 2k’s track record it’s safe to say the license is in good hands.

The WWE gaming fan base is a demanding bunch and expect a lot of new features and changes every year, so quality of the first WWE game 2k puts its name on is going to be critical.

Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez). The only way to stop the criminal outfit is to outmatch them at street level, so Hobbs asks Dom to assemble his elite team in London. Payment?
