  1. Microsoft has released PC drivers for the Xbox One controller today, the announcement came from Xbox Live's Major Nelson. Gamers can now use their Xbox One controller to play games and use apps on their PC by downloading the required drivers(available on Major Nelson's site). Major Nelson also stated that they are planning to release the drivers in a Windows update in the near future but gamers can get early access to it today. A micro USB cable will be required as it does not support a wireless connection at the moment. Games that currently support the Xbox 360 controller will be compatible with the Xbox One controller. Now on to the conspiracy. In the announcement of the Xbox One controller PC drivers on Major Nelson's site there is a picture that shows the Xbox One controller that is connected to a Surface Pro to demonstrate the new functionality of the feature and it has the Halo 2's main title screen on it. See below. Now this could be solely for demonstration purposes to show of the new feature but with the cavalcade of rumors and "hints" over the past number of months many might take this as another nudge towards Halo 2 anniversary being in the works. So Is it? It does seem suspicious that they are using Halo 2 in that image and not an image of one of their recent products such as Halo: Spartan Assault considering it is the latest Halo game out right now and the fact that it is available to play on PC and Windows devices. Is this another nod towards a Halo 2 anniversary or is it just an innocent act? Anyway I'll leave it for you to decide, leave your thoughts on this news below. Source: majornelson.com
  2. Microsoft has opened the way for independent developers to use the ID@Xbox program to potentially become a registered XBOX One developer. This type of program is similar to Bugie's Aerospace project that launched back in 2011. The difference here is the ability to produce games directly for a console, given you have a proven record of shipping games for console, PC, phone or tablet use. Here is the story as it originally appeared in eurogamer.net. Microsoft unveils Xbox One indie developer self-publishing program By Wesley Yin-Poole Microsoft has unveiled its Xbox One indie developer self-publishing program. Microsoft said it met with more than 50 developers to learn what they wanted from a self-publishing program, and ID@Xbox, as it's known, is the result. Under the new rules, each registered developer will receive two development kits at no cost, and developers will have access to the full power of the console, cloud services, Kinect and the Xbox Live toolset, which includes Xbox SmartGlass, multiplayer, Achievements and Gamerscore, among other things. Applications to the ID@Xbox Program will be accepted from 20th August at www.xbox.com/id. If a developer is accepted, it will become a registered Xbox One developer. Microsoft said this status will be granted "with priority" to independent game developers "who have a proven track record of shipping games on console, PC, mobile or tablet", suggesting Microsoft has stopped short of creating a true open platform in the vein of the App Store. Crucially, there are no application fees, and as with Xbox 360, there are no fees for certification or title updates. Developers will also benefit from a global support team, headed up by ID@Xbox director Chris Charla. Charla's brief is to maintain personal communication with developers. Community managers will provide quick responses to submissions, and a number of events are planned to explain how the process will work. A chief concern among indie devs is how their games will be discovered by gamers who use the Xbox One. Microsoft said all games are located together on the Xbox One Store, and "rich search scenarios" using voice through Kinect will enable easy discoverability. Trending will showcase what friends and the community are playing, Recommendations will bring forward new games based on what you like to play, Spotlight showcases Editor Picks and, with the Xbox One's Game DVR and Upload feature, new games will be found as gamers capture and share videos. Developers will also be able to create special events out of Achievements and Challenges. The initial phase of the program will begin this autumn, but longer term Microsoft plans to enable any Xbox One console to be used as a development kit for self-publishing purposes. "This means that any hobbyist with a great game idea can make it come to life on Xbox One," Microsoft said. "We know Xbox fans will fall in love with the quality and diversity of games on our platform," Marc Whitten, Xbox Chief Product Officer, said. "We are committed to ID@Xbox and are fully invested in helping independent developers succeed on Xbox One." Microsoft EMEA boss Phil Harrison added: "I am really looking forward to the diversity and creativity of games that will come to Xbox One through the ID@Xbox program. We've worked with the community of developers to craft a platform that helps creators self-publish on Xbox One - irrespective of their size or location." One indie developer already convinced by Microsoft's new initiative is SpyParty creator Chris Hecker: "I'm really excited that Microsoft has listened to feedback from developers and created this program," he said. "As an independent developer, I want SpyParty to be available to as many players as possible, and it feels like Microsoft is interested in not only removing roadblocks for indies to get their games on Xbox One, but they're also genuinely interested in finding ways to bring new and innovative indie games to their platform to help games reach their potential as an art and entertainment form."
  3. Creative Assembly's new horror game, Alien: Isolation on Next Gen has had a confirmed release date. Aliens: Colonial Marines was met with huge fire on it's launch, and likely tarnished the Alien reputation to the point of no return, but Alien: Isolation hopes to fix that with what fans of the original know and love, alone in the dark, with an alien in the shadows around you. Fans will be able to experience that feeling on October 7th, 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and other next and old generation platforms, as well as PC. The release date was confirmed during a panel at this year's EGX Rezzed, a UK gaming event. The news came in first at GameSpot.com after the event was held. View attachment: Alien-Isolation-screen.jpg The game is being developed by Creative Assembly, the team behind Total War: Rome 2, which does have some fans scared. It is being published by Sega, who owns the license now, as the also published Colonial Marines. With this information, do you have hope for CA's survival thriller in space, or do you think it will be just another Amnesia clone with nothing new to the table? Comment below and let me know!
  4. Microsoft's Xbox chief Marc Whitten posted on xbox.com that a digital sharing system will be coming to Xbox One called "Home Gold". Not long after E3 Microsoft reversed a lot of their policies after a high amount of negative feed back from their fan base one of the features they removed was family sharing, a feature that allowed an Xbox One user to access games from their friends library if they chose to share it with them. Well Microsoft seems to be bringing this feature or a similar feature to the Xbox One which will allow users to access a friends game library from their account. Slashgear article. Home Gold was hinted at earlier this year at E3, and now we have the full details. Although called Home Gold, the feature isn’t necessarily limited to one’s physical home, but instead is applicable to those who are using the Xbox One with the Live Gold subscriber. At the subscriber’s home, the Xbox One console can be setup to enable Live Gold features to other residents regardless of whether the subscriber is logged in to his or her account. Elsewhere, the subscriber can log into their account on a different console (such as at a friend’s house) and extend those same Live Gold features to the other users. Benefits of this include multi-player gaming and access to the entertainment apps. For the gamer’s primary (home) Xbox One, Home Gold is extended to an unlimited number of gamers. Elsewhere, those using the console will have access to the Gold features while the subscriber is logged in. Home Gold aside, Microsoft also detailed the sharing of digital games, which is available amongst the users in one’s home. A single library can harbor games purchased by multiple users, and those users can then log in and play one of those games, even if the original buyer isn’t logged into his or her account. Buying a game on a different Xbox One while signed in will result in the game being made available on the gamer’s own console, and a gamer’s digital downloads can be played on a friend’s console by signing in. The statement also specifies that most of the digital games don’t require the gamer to be connected to the Internet, but that the “experience” is better if one is. IGN video.
  5. Today, 2K & Gearbox announced... Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for both Xbox One, and PS4. It contains a remastered Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and Borderlands 2. Here's some of the features of the game: Now supports 4 Player Co-op on the same console (compared to the original 2 max) Saves from the previous-gen Pre-Sequel, or 2 carry over to the PS4/Xbox One version. You cannot cross saves from a PS3 to an Xbox One, and so on. All DLC from both the Pre-Sequel, and 2 will be in the Handsome Collection In addition a limited edition (which there are only 5,000 units) dubbed the Claptrap-in-a-box Edition will release simultaneously with the regular edition at a price of 400$. Here's what it contains: Remote controlled Claptrap (that can speak with iconic voice samples, and I believe stands 2.5 feet tall), that is controlled using an iOS, and Android app for Phone or Tablet: ClaptrApp. The Claptrap also has a camera in it's eye that can be streamed to the app The Handsome Jack Collection, including all the DLC 12 Vault Hunter lithographs: all the Vault Hunters from the games in the Handsome Collection. Collectible steel case for the games with custom artwork Limited Edition & Game screenshots, and Announcement Trailer: Both the Standard, and Limited Editions of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection are now available for pre-order.

  6. New images have appeared of Halo 3: ODST's 1080p remake and the Relic HD remaster in Halo 2: Anniversary! Halo 3: ODST and Relic are fast on our heels, with a Spring 2015 release, and 343i has decided to tease our taste buds yet again after the Halo 5 tease with new images of both compensations. On HaloWaypoint.com, in a blog post, the wonderful Dan Ayoub released a few teaser images in which we see what is being working on. They confirmed that for Relic, community playtesters are working hard to iron out the kinks to make it akin to it's famed Halo 2 predecessor. The images show the true fine detail of Halo 3: ODST not apparent on Xbox 360, the new version is much brighter compared to the standard version. They show an action shot on Relic where a Blue Spartan with a Beam Rifle oversees a Warthog explosion, confirming that the Assault Rifle is on the map (as of yet). They also show a Forge World styled overview, which we see below. View attachment: halo-the-master-chief-collection-relic-establishing-comparison-remastere...-5bcb1516191748f3ac131b35dc6018a4.jpg View attachment: halo-the-master-chief-collection-odst-plaza-57e9952a83574ef8b87f5d19df5150ee.jpg I'm really excited for the future of other content being remastered for a paid fee, I'd love to see more Halo 2 maps added to the roster, imagine Headlong with the new graphics! ODST as a fully retouched game would've been amazing, seeing real rain drip off your VISR and such, but this is great too! What's your thoughts on the new photos? Let me know down below! Thanks a ton!
  7. A brand new entry into the Deus Ex series, Mankind Divided, has been revealed over on NeoGaf! I must admit, Square Enix was seeming a bit dry as of late, but this news looks to have flipped that on it's head. Someone on NeoGaf.com revealed screenshots and a gameplay description of a new Deus Ex game called Mankind Divided. The game will center around Adam Jensen, the protagonist of the previous game Human Revolution. The plot details are light, but it is known that since Human Revolution, augmented and ordinary people have been separated into social castes, and this leads to conflict. As in the past, putting in more effort will reward more payout as your actions affect the course of the game, so going stealth is likely the best option. The AI has been heavily improved to make open combat a bit trickier as the new system's tactics will give players a run for their money. A host of old abilities have been improved, including some new blade/crossbow tricks, and a shield that Adam can utilize. There will be no transfer from your previous game, so as far as story goes, most decisions likely won't matter. The game will release on an unknown date as of yet for Xbox One, PS4, and the PC, no last generation launch due to the game's prowess. View attachment: xaFXddA.jpg I'm a huge Deus Ex fan, so I'm really excited to see where Mankind Divided goes! What do you guys think of this info, are you a fan too? Let me know down below! Thanks for reading.

For starters, Halo Reach is being remade on the Xbox One in 1080p 60fps detail, with Campaign and Multiplayer being ported over, no Firefight or Forge, unfortunately.

Pre-ordering the game from select retailers will unlock a code for a secondary beta, releasing this September, to give us a final taste of Halo 5. It will not be restricted to the Arena Multiplayer and will run gamemodes like Free-For-All and Turf, a brand new version of BTB. Not much else is known about what content is coming, but 343i has teased more is on the way later. What's your opinion on this news guys? Let me know down below! Super excited myself!

  14. Today, Bethesda and Zenimax announced that The Elder Scrolls Online will be coming to consoles free of charge with the new Tamriel Unlimited Edition! If you don't remember, I did an article about a week back stating how Bethesda was hinting at the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online being Free-To-Play, turns out, I was right. Today Bethesda announced over at PlayStation's YouTube.com (no word on the Xbox version yet) that the game will be launching this June 9th, earlier than expected, with the ability to play without a subscription fee. If you're wondering how much that saves you, consider the fact that the game costed $15 a month on top of your regular Xbox Live/PSN fee. As well, it has been decked out with a new white box art compared to the old standard version. Word on whether the PC version will be experiencing the free-to-play update is unknown, but likely, and same goes for the Xbox version, though both are nearly confirmed. Pre-orders for the Tamriel Unlimited Edition have not been updated yet, though I'll link them if they go up soon. I'm quite pleased that Bethesda is doing this, though I can understand why PC players might feel that they've been used as scapegoats and beta testers for an unfinished and fee-ridden game. So if you feel that way, it's understandable, I won't argue, still great for console players though. What are your thoughts, will you be picking ESO up now? Let me know below, and thanks for reading! By the way I wanna thank Yang Xiao Long for linking this to me! This post has been promoted to an article
  15. I was playing matchmaking and I noticed once that someone had a Arctic Battle Rifle Skin in Halo 4 and in Halo 3 matchmaking everyone on my team, at least had a Flaming Red Helmet. Is this a hack, or can you get this legitimately?
  16. The newest entry in the Gears of War franchise from Black Tusk may return to the series's darker and more morbid roots according to Phil Spencer and Black Tusk. Details on the newest title in the Gears of War franchise on Xbox One are incredibly scant, and now we have a small bit of detail to add to that nothingness! IGN.com reports that Phil Spencer is in talks with the new studio behind Gears of War to return the franchise to it's dark roots in the first three games as compared to Judgment. Phil said on the subject how he adored the franchise's, “epic scale, the settings that I was in, the massive destruction moments. It was more what I would call soulful and maybe even a little dark.” This could possibly mean that grittier and dirty moments like the point blank executions in Gears of War or the unique gameplay sections (like fighting the Corpser in Gears of War 1, or riding the large human vehicles in Gears of War 2) may return. On top of this, Phil expressed how he understood the complaints with Judgment, but focused on the future of the franchise for the next decade. He also confirmed the game would not be a reboot, making way for a sequel, prequel, or spin-off to Marcus Fenix's stories. So far though, no details like a release date, plot, game title, or characters have been revealed, and it's likely we won't see much too soon.

Sorry I've been gone folks, I'm trying. Peace out!

  19. This is actually new to me as I have just stumbled upon some news about this Xbox One feature after it has been known for a couple of months, it's called Xbox One upload studio. Xbox One upload studio is a tool that allows users to edit, theme and share videos they have recorded from their video games and present them on their own channel for other gamers to see. Each users channel will most likely be attached to and accessible from that users own Xbox One profile. If you had an amazing, funny or weird moment while playing a game you could record it and upload it to your channel for the Xbox community to see. Quoted from news.xbox.com "At EVO 2013, one fan went undefeated for hours in “Killer Instinct” until at long last the best player on the “Killer Instinct” development team was able to defeat them. Using Game DVR, they were able to record the best parts of the highly competitive set of three matches. With Upload Studio, they were able to quickly turn it into a stylized video clip that could be shown off locally, like during a panel at Comic-Con, or broadcast through Xbox Live for the world to see." "If you want to share gameplay footage immediately without editing it, Xbox One also supports that. Simply say “Xbox record” at any time and the console will record what happens next for you to send to your friends or upload to the Internet." Here is a video from IGN with Xbox's Creative Director Matt White giving a brief walkthrough on how it works.
  20. Microsoft and Ubisoft have teamed up to create an awesome Xbox One bundle releasing this fall! So if you've been looking for a great deal on an Xbox One and want two awesome games inside, I've got the perfect new bundle for all your needs. IGN.com reported on the new Assassin's Creed bundle for Xbox One, which will include two hit AC games. Assassin's Creed Unity and (strangely enough) Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag will be included in the package. Just for your information, both games will be downloadable codes rather than physical copies. Alongside the two games is your typical Xbox One with your usual controller and headset package. There will be two versions of this bundle, one for $400 without the kinect sensor, and for $500 with the sensor and Dance Central Spotlight included. The bundle will release on November 2nd, 2014 but Unity won't be playable until it's street date release on the 11th.

  21. On the Xbox One's first day in China, September 29th, the system reportedly sold a whopping 100,000 consoles! The Xbox One, despite it's rough start in 2013, seems to be picking itself up off the ground and running boldly. According to GameInformer.com, the console has apparently sold 100,000 units in China on it's first day. We unfortunately can't put these numbers in comparison with the Xbox 360 or even the PlayStation 4 or 3 as this is the first console to release in China after a twelve year ban. PlayStation plans to launch the PS4 in China in December, so we can come back then and compare day one sales. So far though, the Xbox One is the leading (and only) console in China. Despite this, the PS4 is still kicking ahead as far as we known in total sales. Even though we now have day one numbers in China alone, current sales numbers have not been released, though before the holiday begins I'm sure Microsoft will update us on sales numbers, as the last we heard in total sales was 5 million shipped.

Thank you very much for reading!
  22. I'm not late, it doesn't count! We have your usual three articles today, tried to spice it up by making them a bit more diverse this time around. So sit down, get your popcorn, and prepare for- What? I need to leave the premises? Why? I don't work here anymore? That's insane! You're getting the swat dogs, okay I'm out! Before we start the link in the article below does contain coarse language, viewer discretion is advised. View attachment: WNW 71914.JPG Ashley Johnson (Ellie, The Last of Us) Responds to Ubisoft Female Assassin Controversy Ubisoft has been under heavy fire from Gaming Press, Gamers, and men and women alike in the gaming media for their decision to not include a playable female Assassin. Ashley Johnson, best known as Ellie from The Last of Us, is one of those women, as she has fired at Ubisoft according to Polygon.com. Leaving out Ashley's choice words likely too mature to be fully stated here, she is completely against the decision, saying, "It's 2014! How many video games do you have to make to realize maybe have an option to have a female be in there?" Her co-star in the game, Troy Baker, has made a much less volatile statement, cautioning the idea of forced inclusion of females. Ubisoft has tried to quell the massive response of angered gamers, but even their wide array of efforts have done little to stop people. Ubisoft is composed of a diverse library of employees, men, women, foreigners, and for the most part anything in between. They were also under similar fire for controversy over the Far Cry 4 cover art showcasing a lighter skinned man holding down a darker skinned man. View attachment: ellie-and-joel-the-last-of-us_121708.jpg What's your take on this ridiculous controversy? Debate below! Sony announces two new PS4 bundles in Japan: Custom Destiny Bundle and The Last of Us Bundle PlayStation 4 bundles have been popping up in massive degrees lately, between the Driveclub bundle announced and the recent questionable Frozen bundle, Japan has a wide variety of different PlayStation 4s to choose from, and now we can add two more to that list. IGN.com states that Sony has announced a Destiny bundle with a custom console, and a The Last of Us Remastered bundle with a custom TLOU: R themed PS4. The Destiny bundle is the same as it is here in United States, save for the Destiny logo imprinted unto the console. The Last of Us Remastered bundle includes the game, the PlayStation 4 with the two main characters on the cover, and the DualShock 4, all in their signature black. Destiny is slightly different sporting the Sony logo on it's bottom right corner as well, as it is a PS4 exclusive in Japan. The bundles will likely be the same price as your typical game/console bundle.

Xbox One Summer Update Features Mobile Purchases, 3D Blu-Ray Compatibility, and More The Xbox One has received quite a few helpful updates following it's launch about a year ago, including a helpful video editor.
