Watch Dogs Ubisoft

Ubisoft Aiming To Sell Over 6 Million Copies Of 'Watch Dogs'

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot is very confident that Watch Dogs is going to sell over 6 million copies. Well, 6.3 million, to be exact.

Guillemot claims that he can set the high goal due to the massive success of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. It also doesn’t hurt that the game has had an incredibly great ad campaign, and just about every new tidbit of information has been relished by just about everyone.

Watch Dogs is being developed by Ubisoft for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC and will be released on May 27th. A Wii U version is also being developed and is set to be released at the end of the year.

'Killzone: Mercenary' Developers Working On Unknown PS4 Game

Developer Guerrilla Cambridge, who is responsible for the PlayStation Vita game Killzone: Mercenary, are apparently working on an unknown PlayStation 4 game.

This news comes from a new job listing that is looking for a Senior Environment Artist. You can find all the details from the PlayStation Jobs website right here.

Other than that, there is next to nothing known about this title. Whatever could it be?


Ubisoft Thinks PS4 & Xbox One Will Sell 30 Million By March 2015

The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One are both performing very well, as they have both outsold their predecessors by this time in their life cycles. However, Ubisoft thinks that the good numbers are going to get even better.

Speaking at a recent earnings call, Ubisoft’s CEO Yves Guillemot said that he thinks that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will have sold a combined 30 million units by March 2015.

Honestly, these numbers could be very possible. Remember, both systems haven’t really gotten into a good groove yet, so when even bigger titles are being released that you can only get on new-gen systems you better believe sales will go up.

Natural Doctrine

Western Trailer Debut For Kadokawa Games' 'Natural Doctrine'

Another JRPG is making its way to North America thanks to NIS America, and now Natural Doctrine has received its first western trailer.

The game does look very promising, as it reminds be a lot of old-school RPGs that I can’t get enough of. The game is being developed for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, though from the trailer it seems more like an early PS3 game.

Check out the Natural Doctrine debut western trailer below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVMXzGgXnLY’%5D

Naughty Dog

Naughty Dog Developing "Two Brand New Experiences"

Naughty Dog are pretty much the best developers around right now, bringing us both the Uncharted series and the fantastic The Last of Us. We know that both a remaster of The Last of Us and new entry in the Uncharted series are in development, but what we didn’t know is that they are working on two other things that are completely unrelated to those games.

Creative director Neil Druckmann spoke with EDGE and said the following about current projects:

“We’re working on this re-release, but at the same time we’re working on two other brand-new experiences.”

What these brand new experiences are is anyone’s guess, but you can bet that Naughty Dog is going to be having all eyes on them at this year’s E3.

Killzone: Shadowfall getting Intercept co-op expansion

'Killzone: Shadowfall' Getting Intercept Co-Op Expansion In June

The PlayStation 4 exclusive FPS Killzone: Shadowfall is set to receive a co-op expansion in June that is called Intercept. What Intercept does is place you and up to three of your friends on Intelligence Squad Alpha, who are a special VSA team that have been tasked with going behind enemy lines and relaying information on the Helghast military.

The news revealed in a post on PlayStation.Blog, which also goes into detail about the combat roles you will have in Intercept. You have the choice between four different roles: Assault, Marksman, Medic and Tactician. You will essentially have to take down Helghast while simultaneously protecting your uplinks from assault.

Intercept comes with four arena maps that are based on areas from the single-player campaign. Interestingly, a stand-alone version is coming later this year for those who do not have Killzone: Shadowfall but still want to try out the co-op.

Scroll down to see a complete list of what is coming out from May 12th to May 18th, 2014. Continue reading


'Hohokum' Heading For PS3, PS4 & Vita This Summer

The game that has been called the “most relaxing game of E3” is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this Summer, the developers announced.

Hohukum is kind of a difficult game to describe, as it is less about overcoming obstacles as it is just casually going with the flow. Check out the trailer below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSZ0cLRJWqk’%5D

The Elder Scrolls Online

'The Elder Scrolls Online' Delayed 6 Months For PS4 & Xbox One?

The Elder Scrolls Online released for the PC back in the beginning of April and was met with exceptionally mixed reviews. However, the console versions of the game have yet to be released, and although they were originally planned for a June release the developers have recently confirmed that that is no longer possible.

Now, developer Bethesda is claiming that an even bigger delay is coming. According to the FAQ page they are claiming that they all came to an agreement that the game needs around 6 more months of development time to get some extra polish and make this game commercially ready.

Here’s where it gets interesting, though – Very quickly after that message was posted it was deleted and the developers began banning those where were posting images or text related to this message.

So, what’s the deal? Who knows, but whatever the case may be it looks like the developers really have no clue how much longer it will take to get these console versions of the game commercially ready, and due to the mixed reception that the PC version received they are probably going to be taking their time to fix some of the glaring complaints.

Omega Quintet

New PlayStation 4 JRPG 'Omega Quintet' Revealed

Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has revealed that a new RPG is coming to the PlayStation 4 and it is called Omega Quintet. The game is being developed by Compile Heart that will indeed be a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

The developers are calling the game a fantasy idol RPG that has a firm release date of of September 18th in Japan. If you’re wondering what the hell that means, they claim the story follows idols who are about to meet a mysterious creature that goes by the name of “Beep”. This “Beep” has the power to destroy peoples minds and the entire world. Sounds good!

Below is an image showing the announcement of the gamin in Famitsu, which gives you a pretty good idea about what kind of genre this game falls into. I’m predicting the cheesy and zany genre with a few dark turns thrown in for good measure.

Omega Quintet

Omega Quintet does not have an official release date for North America, though I’m sure something will be announced by or at E3.

Sony Announces A Dozen Indie Games Coming To PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4 continues to boast about how impressive its indie game devotion is, and today they have strengthened that by revealing a dozen more games that will be coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

The following are descriptions and video taken from the PlayStation.Blog regarding each individual title that will be making its way to a new Sony console.

Apotheon (PS4)

“Jumping, rolling, and parcouring, untouchable all around the map while showering your foes with exploding arrows. Shooting the chain off a hanging lamp and sending the burning oil to ignite whoever’s unfortunate enough to be standing below. Shield bashing your opponent in the face because he got inside your speartip range with his axe, sending him reeling across the room, then chucking the aforementioned spear into his chest and watching him cartwheel down a flight of stairs in a fountain of artfully-styled gore. It’s all very satisfying, in a classical way.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOvwpj0pw9A’%5D

Axiom Verge (PS4 & PS Vita)

“Axiom Verge is a retro-styled 2D “metroidvania” action-adventure, inspired by such classics as Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando, Blaster Master, and, of course, Metroid. But it also gives you power over glitches like those found in classic games, allowing you to scramble enemies, corrupt environments, and enter hidden areas.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6U04mprotZU’%5D

Chasm (PS4)

“In Chasm, players take up the role of Daltyn, a young soldier sent to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a mining crew in the remote mountain town of Karthas. Upon arrival you learn the town has been cut off from the outside world by supernatural forces. Now trapped, you are left with no option but to explore the mines below the town and uncover the source of the disturbances. Only by gaining new special abilities, evading dangerous traps, and defeating hordes of deadly enemies can you hope to save Karthas — and possibly the world!” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEJMG8DjkiQ’%5D

Drifter (PS4 & PS Vita)

“Drifter is an open-world, sandbox, space trading game with a procedurally-generated galaxy 100,000 light years across, made up of tens of thousands of star systems to explore and features an original soundtrack by composer Danny Baranowsky. In the game you take on the role of a spaceship captain attempting to eke out a living among the stars by trading goods between star systems, hunting pirates for bounties, mining asteroids for valuable ore, or even becoming a pirate yourself.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGYrY9McncA’%5D

Escape Goat 2 (PS4)

“The theme of Escape Goat 2 is transformation. As you manipulate hidden machinery, walls move around and blocks settle into new places. Things look different when you’re done with the room (especially if you employ your mighty horns to their best use). And you have a remarkable companion to help you on your journey…” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX7Ogs_FD20′%5D

Ironclad Tactics (PS4)

“Ironclad Tactics is a fast-paced, card-based tactics game set in the American Civil War… with robots! Although it’s reminiscent of the tactics games and collectible card games that we’re all familiar with, we’ve done a few things that make the game stand out.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yT2h7bhgNY’%5D

Jamestown Plus (PS4)

“We want Jamestown Plus to be the definitive, be-all, end-all, director’s cut, remastered, extended edition of the game. When the three of us sat down to make a co-op shoot-em-up back in 2009, it was always our hope that one day we would bring it to console. This Summer, that dream finally becomes a reality.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXuuFezbSiI’%5D

Nidhogg (PS4)

“We have the most fun playing Nidhogg in front of our TV with friends. Sharing a TV and controllers is way more comfortable than crowding around someone’s desk and sharing a keyboard. Exclusive to the PS4 version, the built-in tournament mode now indicates your fencer’s color on DualShock 4′s light bar… how cool is that?!” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPD0Ya4YWDU’%5D

Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition (PS4)

“Skulls of the Shogun is a mash-up of turn-based strategy and fighting-game flare, scientifically engineered for lightning-quick rounds, thoughtful strategic play, and a frequently inappropriate sense of humor with its tongue planted firmly in cheek. And whether you’re into single or multiplayer, Skulls has you covered.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DsDUsovH3A’%5D

Source (PS4)

“A great Metroidvania is an experience where you go off on an amazing adventure. You may not know where you’re going, or who your friends are, but you have a purpose and a way of defending yourself. This is what we’re setting out to do with Source, except with a new kind of character set in an alternate dimension, inspired by life as we know it.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5dPY3UAtOE’%5D

Spelunky (PS4)

“We’re once again teaming up with BlitWorks, who did a great job on bringing the game to PS3 and PS Vita. For PS4, we want to do even more — like bump up the graphics to 1080p, let players upload replays to the leaderboards, add more social features to the Daily Challenge, and otherwise take advantage of the PS4′s unique hardware.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BavpUeuQsts’%5D

Starwhal: Just the Tip (PS4)

“Starwhal is a vehicle for that sort of experience we all cherished with our friends where the mood oscillates between giddy laughter and serious competition. Starwhal is superficially silly and narratively vacant, but somehow something so much deeper when you get a group of people wrangling space mammals in mortal combat. It’s easy to understand what’s going on, the rules are simple, but the whole thing is just weird enough that it throws everyone on to the same bizarre, but level, playing field.” [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJiJi7IwQEk’%5D

Lords of the Fallen

New 'Lords Of The Fallen' Challenge Trailer Brings The Pain

Namco Bandai has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming action RPG Lords of the Fallen, which showcases a lot of trial-and-error. Basically, if you keep running into an arena with a giant beast and die over and over again, eventually you will be successful. You know, that’s how life works.

Lords of the Fallen is developed by Deck13 and CI Games and is set to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this Fall. Check out the Challenge trailer below.[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-J1InbFO8s’%5D

Condemn (OR) Condone:

It may have a bit of a Dark Souls vibe going, but that is a very good thing in my book. My only issue is some of the animation and graphics look a bit dated here and there. Otherwise, this looks like it could be another challenging and fun-as-hell RPG.

PlayStation 4 Has Now Sold Over 6 Million Units

Thanks to the recent launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan, Sony has announced another major milestone for their new system. The PlayStation 4 has now sold over 6 million units, with nearly 400,000 of those sales coming from the recent Japanese launch.

What’s most incredible about these numbers is that they absolutely trump the 5 million that Sony was aiming for by the end of March. Nearly 14 million games have been sold for the system and about half of the users have signed up for PlayStation Plus.

Condemn OR Condone:

There is just no stopping the PlayStation 4. With sales now soaring over the 6 million mark, it looks like Sony will be closer to 7 million then their estimated 5 million. This is a huge success no matter how you slice it!
