It appears 2 million copies is not enough for EA. They’re after more and they’re willing to sacrifice the style of one of their more unique IP’s for the chance to up the sales of the sequel. It’s a controversial opinion and even though I loved the original, I think the design was all the original game had, it looked gorgeous and the audio and the soundtrack were fantastic, it was however marred by it’s length and preordained corridor like levels, something I find rather humorous since the whole game see’s you fighting for the freedom of expression. I should get out more.
An image on Amazon’s website has apparently shown what will be included in the box of the Playstation 4. Spy camera not included.
Its been up in the air the last few days since Microsoft announced they would be selling their Xbox One headset separately, but Microsoft has now definitively said that old headsets will not work on the Xbox One in a statement to Game Informer.
Head past the jump for Microsoft’s statement.
Previously, developers publishing their software on the Xbox 360 were required to pay a fee to submit their games to microsoft’s certification process, but it has now been confirmed by multiple developers that Microsoft has dropped this fee entirely, in favour of creating a more open platform for indie devs and the like to publish their content on.
With so much pressure on Microsoft’s indie support with the upcoming Xbox One, when compared to the PS4′s huge indie library and claims of a much more open, and easy to develop for platform, it’s no surprise that Microsoft felt the need to make some changes.
Good to see that Microsoft are sticking with their new policy of doing the exact opposite of all their old policies then.
So next gen we’re going to have to pay to play online, the waters have stilled since the public feigned anger over Sony’s decision at e3. Was anybody actually pissed at this decision? I’ve read so many bitchy, whiny comments online “I’ve spent £60 to play online this year” and “How dare they begin to charge!” Like they have any idea what it costs to keep a service like Xbox Live or PSN running.
