PS4 owners can expect to see Black Ops 3 add ons first...dare we say maybe some exclusive content?

Hideo Kojima says sianara to MGS

upload.jpeg

So the final MGS from the legandary Kojima is upon us. It seems that Kojima may have saved the best for last judging by the 9.5 rating across the board. We at WhatGear are extemely excited about the 50+ hours of gameplay...but we are hoping that 40 of then aren't cut scenes. Hey I got a question exactly how many Solid Snakes are there!

So while Konami retain the rights to MGS. Yes it's still true this is game over for Kojima and MGS. We still might be likely to see Metal Gear apps... most likely freemiums. Kojima will have no involvement. 

 

 

PS4 Vs Xbone 3/1 in Sony's favour

PS4 Vs Xbone 3/1 in Sony's favour

According to its latest sales figures, Sony’s consoles outsold Microsoft’s consoles three-to-one in the quarter ending June 30. During its quarterly earnings call yesterday, Sony said that it had sold a combined total of 3.5 million units of the PS4 C$479.99 at Amazon and PS3, compared to Microsoft’s quarterly figure of just 1.1 million Xbox One $369.00 at Groupon and Xbox 360 consoles. Neither Sony or Microsoft opted to break down these numbers into per-console sales figures, but using previous announcements as a baseline it’s probably around 70-30 in favor of the PS4 and Xbox One.

In short, this means Sony sold around 2.5 million PS4s last quarter, compared to about 800,000 Xbox Ones. This equates to some very unfavorable total global sales figures for the Xbox One, which we’ll discuss below.

Earlier in the week, Sony surprised everyone by announcing that it had actually made a profit [PDF] during the April-June quarter. This is mostly due to restructuring and selling off assets — Sony has spun off its TV business into a separate subsidiary, sold its PC business, and sold its shares in Square Enix — but strong sales of the PS4 definitely helped matters along. While Sony gave us a combined total of 3.5 million PS4s and PS3s sold during the quarter, the last exact PS4 sales figure (7 million) was way back in April. By our estimations, the PS4 is probably sitting at around 9 million consoles sold globally.

Sony Exec Defends PS4 Games Line-up for 2015 -2016

Sony Exec Defends PS4 Games Line-up for 2015 -2016

 

2015 seems to be an interesting year for both Sony and Microsoft. Microsoft has an amazing line up games later this year which includes the likes of Forza Motorsport 5, Halo 5 Guardians and many more. On the other hand, there does not seem to be many AAA exclusives for the PlayStation 4. Granted the console has a number of games in development, but as it stands right now there is nothing major coming out for the console soon.

PS4 Slim...?

Sony is reportedly planning to release a slim version of the PlayStation 4 (PS4) by Oct. 4. 

At least that's the word according to the latest rumors circulating online.

Earlier this year, numerous reports appearing online suggested that if a slim version of PS4 was to be released this year, Sony would most likely announce news of it at this year's E3.

However E3 2015 came and went without Sony issuing any new word about a possible slim version of their PS4 console.

New reports now are saying that Sony held off on their news regarding the new PS4 in lieu of making that announcement this October, according to Crossmap.

People have been expecting Sony to announce a slim version of the PlayStation 4 for a while now, especially since the company has traditionally released a slim model for their previous consoles.

If a slim version of the PS4 is indeed to be announced, many are expecting that it would come with 1 TB of available space, although the rumors have stopped short of naming any other possible upgrades or changes that could be made to the console.

In related news, Sony is currently looking for PS4 owners who will be willing to try out their new software update before it is officially launched, according to the PlayStation Blog.

To be more specific, the people who will be trying out the new update will be testing its features and be giving feedback based on their experiences with it.

There are a few requirements that Sony is looking for in potential software testers and those include owning a PS4, having access to a master account and a decent enough Internet connection.

Potential software testers will also need to sign up at the official PlayStation website to be in the running to be selected for the said trial.

PlayStation Vita Prototype System Showcased By New Video

PlayStation Vita Prototype System Showcased By New Video

The PlayStation Vita console is far from being the more successful PlayStation console released by Sony, mostly due to the very low support by big developers and publishers. With Sony itself defining the system as a legacy system, at least in the West, it seems like the console won’t be receiving any big release from Western developers. Still, the console is a very good handheld, with more than a few good high profile games as well as several indie games having been released since its launch in all regions

PS4 Risen 3 Titans

PS4 Risen 3 Titans

When Risen 3: Titan Lords first released onto PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PC last year, it wasn’treviewed all that highly. The RPG had a clunky combat system, frame-rate issues, and poor graphics, making it not quite worth your money. However, while Risen 3: Titan Lords – Enhanced Edition on PS4 still deals with many of the same issues, it actually manages to look gorgeous on the current-gen system.

Things Are Moving Fast

Risen 3 follows the story of a nameless hero who is the son of the famous Captain Steelbeard, a pirate leader. Soon after the game begins, the hero dies, but is brought back to life a few weeks later. It’s revealed that he needs to find his soul, as it has been trapped in the Underworld. This leads the player on a quest to get the hero’s soul back by obtaining help from a variety of different magic users on a number of different islands. It’s a not bad story, but the pacing seems a bit too fast, almost as if the developer wanted to skip past certain, and important, parts of the story to get right into the gameplay. 

Unfortunately, the gameplay isn’t all that much better. The world of Risen 3 is massive, allowing players to spend hours upon hours exploring a variety of different landscapes and fighting a myriad of different creatures and enemies. Since it is an open-world game, Risen 3 gives players the freedom to explore the game world at their leisure, working on a large number of side-quests and looking for treasure as they do so. It sounds pretty good, and it would be, too, if it wasn’t for the horrible animations and the clunky combat.

Actually, the animations are so bad, that they seem like they could have been taken straight out of a 10-year old PC game, or maybe something even older. The main characters seems to have no weight when he walks, and it looks like he glides across the ground instead of actually placing his feet down. This is only made more clear when attempting to “climb” a vertical wall. I found that by simply walking straight into the faces of cliffs or the trunks of trees, my character would sort of float up them, instead of staying on the ground like he should have done. This makes any sort of movement in the game both look and feel unnatural.
