Sony’s answer to the threat of gamers jumping ship to the PC

Sony’s Decision to release a souped up PS4 code-named the PS4 NEO is a result of the Japanese electronic giant’s fears of potentially losing customers to the high end PC as Sony would rather understandably have gamer’s within their own Ecosystem. PC gamer’s routinely enjoy higher frame-rates and higher, more detailed resolutions in contrast to their console counterparts it is believed so it is understandable why Sony would feel the need to release a mid-cycle update to exist along the current and already graphically capable PS4.

The PS4 Neo’s better graphics should likely help persuade current gamer’s from jumping ship although like I said, the PS4 is perfect capable given the likes of Uncharted 4 and with what was shown at E3 2016.with games like the new God of war and Horizon zero dawn in the pipeline, it’s a bit surprising although not unheard of why Sony would even think about going this route just like Microsoft has apparently with its new mid cycle refresh of the XBOX code-named Scorpio. Now I wonder, even though I stick to consoles even though I own a reasonably capable PC,I just don’t see why other gamer’s can do the same thing, I mean that’s what gaming is all about right? The more the merrier.

Halo 6 likely to come on Windows 10

There is some good news for Halo fans and PC community, Halo 6 will most likely be coming to Windows 10. The name for the next Halo hasn’t been decided or revealed so let’s just call it Halo 6 for now.

What’s interesting to note is that Halo 5’s Forge level creation tool is coming to PC for free but PC players won’t be getting Halo 5 which is a little disappointing.

Microsoft has definitely decided to spread the Xbox One love on to the PC, at this year’s press conference at E3 Microsoft announced many big titles coming to Xbox One which will also be released for the PC, tittles include Gears of War 4 and Forza 3.

It’s good to know that Microsoft is focusing on cross platform gameplay and providing gaming titles for PC players on the Windows 10 where one would have had to buy an Xbox One to play now both Xbox and PC players can play together hopefully sometime in the near future.

This could result in Xbox One titles which were exclusive to the console to head on over to the PC as well, making them Xbox One and PC exclusives but there is still a possibility to keeping a few titles as exclusive for the Xbox like Sony has exclusives of its own.

Having Halo 6 releasing on the PC as well is still speculation so far, but while talking to PCgamer the head of Xbox Phil Spencer has mentioned that all future Forza games will be coming to Windows and indicating that there is nothing stopping the next Halo to come on the PC as well. The idea of cross platform gameplay by Microsoft can bring more game titles to the PC and can lead to more popularity on behalf of the Xbox One.

Days Gone PS4 Exclusive, New Details revealed

New Details have been revealed on the forthcoming PS4 Exclusive by Bend Studios, Days Gone by namely the dynamic night and day lifecycle which includes wildfire plus the emergent gameplay and weapon crafting system.

According to the developers, all the zombies are being rendered in real-time on the fly and is not intended to be a shortcut or a trick of smoke and mirrors as many objects are being rendered on the fly which gives this game an even more impressive outlook as far as tech is concerned which brings me to my own opinion and many I’m sure who were impressed with the gameplay demo at E3 2016.

days-gone-1

Days Gone brings a sense of Dread and do or die gameplay reminiscent of movies such as World War Z. There also appears to be a weapon crafting system where players get to synthesize the tools they are given to get them out of sticky situations meaning a whole hoard of zombies.

days-gone-2

An impressive showing to say the least which makes quickly makes it one of the more exciting titles heading out of E3. Can’t wait for more details to be known about Days Gone as I’m sure we shall know more in the coming months

Kojima Returns with disturbing New Game Death Stranding

After a falling out with long time partners and developers Konami, the legendary creator of the Metal Gear Solid franchise Hideo Kojima is back with a teaser of his new game Death Stranding starring The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus.

Hideo Kojima is known as an icon in the gaming industry and his departure from Konami came under mysterious circumstances and later went on the create his own studio named Kojima productions which is now partnered with Sony. As Kojima walked up to the stage at this years E3 stating that he’s “back” that’s something fans didn’t expect.

Death Standing Norman Reedus

The Teaser trailer for his latest venture Death Stranding stars Norman Reedus better known for his role as Daryl in The Walking Dead, it was previously seen that Reedus was Kojima’s choice of protagonist for his project Silent Hill which was cancelled.

The trailer from Death Stranding takes on a more mysterious type of story line unlike previous Kojima projects such as the technology driven Metal Gear Solid. The trailer reveals Reedus being apparently washed ashore on a beach covered in what looks like oil, the creepy factor begins when the viewer notices a baby with headphones attached to it’s belly button only to have the baby disappear a few moments later.

The hand prints emerging on Reedus gives us insight that indeed this could be a horry/thriller game and may have some aspects from the cancelled Silent Hill game.

Kojima’s return was well acknowledge at E3 and fans cannot wait what Death Stranding may intale for gamers which seems to be an exclusive title for the PlayStation 4, one things for sure our creepy expectations meter is really high at this point.
