Has this Japanese job listing confirmed the existence of The Evil Within 2?

20 Mar

A sequel to 2014’s underrated The Evil Within hasn’t been officially confirmed, but this job ad may have just spilled the beans.

the_evil_within_10

If you cast your mind back a couple of years, you’ll recall Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within, a horror game that threw a big helping of action into the mix, and that got some pretty good reviews at the time.

Last year, Bethedsa said that the game sold well enough to warrant a sequel, and it looks like that may just be what we’re getting.

A job listing for Psycho Break 2 – the Japanese title for the game – was spotted and posted over on NeoGAF, calling for a translator and Q&A bug reporter.

The position runs from April 10 to October 31, suggesting that we could see a release at the end of the year.

If that is the case, keep your eyes on E3, as if this is legitimate, the sequel will most likely be announced this summer.

Are there any fans of the original game out there, waiting for another installment? Let us know what changes or improvements you’d like to see in a sequel in the comments below.

PlayStation 3 production to end soon in Japan

17 Mar

It looks like we’re nearing end-of-life for the ol’ trusty PlayStation 3.

playstation_ps3

Sony will cease manufacturing the PlayStation 3 in Japan soon.

Though the company has not made an official announcement, the store page for the 500GB model confirms that “shipments are scheduled to end soon” (via Gematsu). The 500GB model is currently the only PS3 model still in production.

This end date could be as soon as March, according to a Tweet from a Japanese retailer. When manufacturing ends in Japan, it usually means the West will soon follow.

Released in 2006, the PS3 will celebrate its 11th year on the market this November. At launch, Sony promised to support the console for ten years. The 500GB model mentioned above is the Super Slim, the console’s final revision which launched in 2012.

By comparison, Microsoft ceased manufacturing of the Xbox 360 in April last year. Maybe now is a good time to make sure your unit works, if you intend to keep it for some time.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater documentary wants $75,000 of your money

16 Mar

Pretending I’m A Superman movie needs funding; supported by Hawk, Mullen and ex-Neversoft employees.

Pretending I’m A Superman – The Tony Hawk Game Story is a new documentary hoping to go into production revealing the history of the iconic Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise.

It will include insight from Hawk, Rodney Mullen and a lot of the original team at Neversoft, and it’s being put together by Ralph D’Amato, who worked on the first eight Tony Hawk games.

D’Amato has also worked for Hawk as his new media guru, so he should know his stuff. He’s asking for $75,000 in funding for the movie, and there’s a bunch of rewards and such if you get involved over on indiegogo.

THPS_documentary

Last we heard from Hawk he was prototyping a new skating game although it sounds like it’s in very early stages.

Resident Evil Revelations is getting a digital and retail release on PS4 and Xbox One later this year

13 Mar

You can snap up Resident Evil Revelations this autumn.

Resident Evil Revelations was initially released back in 2012, and Capcom has just announced that it’ll be getting a PS4 and Xbox One release later this year.

Capcom posted the news on Twitter, saying that the game would be getting both a digital and physical release in Europe and North America this autumn.

Further details are scarce at the moment, but we’ll update you when we hear more.

Did you get a chance to play Resident Evil Revelations the first time around? Will you pick it up for the PS4 or Xbox One? Chime in below.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has you play as Star-Lord, no Hollywood cast onboard – new screens

10 Mar

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series gets new screens and details ahead of PAX East this weekend.

marvel_guardians_of_the_galaxy_telltale_1

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series has players in the role of Star-Lord, Telltale confirmed in a press release today.

The original story takes us “from Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond”, and is “set to the beat of awesome music”. Along the way, the Guardians of the Galaxy crew discover “an artifact of unspeakable power”.

“Each of them has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands,” Telltale said.

The cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty A-list for video game voice acting, although sadly none of the actors from the movie make appearances. That would cost so, so much, and for a dialogue-driven game, be very difficult to fit in with their schedules Here’s the list:

  • Star-Lord: Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series
  • Gamora: Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor)
  • Rocket: Nolan North (the Uncharted series, Pretty Little Liars, 47% of all video games)
  • Drax: Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs)
  • Groot: Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us, League of Legends)
marvel_guardians_of_the_galaxy_telltale_4 marvel_guardians_of_the_galaxy_telltale_3 marvel_guardians_of_the_galaxy_telltale_2

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will release during northern spring. Platform details are not yet available but you can count on all the usual suspects, and a disc-and-season-pass dealio will be available from the get-go. We expect Guardians of the Galaxy to kick off in April thanks to a bit of a leak.

Expect Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series news this weekend, as there’ll be a panel at PAX East. It will also be one show at SXSW the week after, with a live Crowd Play session.

You can grab No Man’s Sky for the low price of £14 through the PS Plus Double Discount sale

9 Mar

PlayStation Plus subscribers in Europe can take advantage of double discounts on the PlayStation Store for the next couple of weeks. See a game on sale you like? Then add it to your cart and enjoy the savings.

the_witcher_3

Take The Witcher 3 for example: it is currently on sale for £19.99 with an extra 20% off if you are a PS Plus member. But, since double discounts are in play, Plus members will see an extra 20% taken off when the game is added to the cart – making it an extra 40% off in total. So, you’re getting one of the best games ever (in my opinion) for a super cheap £11.99.

And, if you want to finally give No Man’s Sky a go, especially now the Path Finder update is live with planetary vehicles, base sharing, and PS4 Pro support, Plus members can get for £13.99.

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Digital Deluxe edition which comes with Modern Warfare is 36% off with doubel discount. So, instead of paying the current sale price of £77.89, as a Plus member you will pay £49.85.

Below, you will find the full list of games available for double discount courtesy of the EU PS Blog. The sale ends on March 22.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s Vietnam expansion is currently free on Xbox Live

1 Mar

The one and only expansion for the much-loved Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is currently available for free on Xbox.

battlefield_bad_company_2

Bad Company 2, an Xbox 360/PS3/PC title which is now part of EA Access and is backwards compatible on Xbox One, only ever received the one expansion pack. Now, you can pick it up for free if you’re on Xbox. What’s more, if you’re not a member of EA Access, the full game is currently discounted down to $10.

The game is also discounted on PS3 and PC, but the DLC isn’t free on either.

I’m not sure how active the multiplayer is for the Xbox version of Bad Company 2, but if you’ve got EA Access now would be a great time to try it out. Now, how about Bad Company 3, DICE?

Persona 5’s new Velvet Room trailer is a great reminder of Persona’s weird heart

21 Feb

Persona 5‘s English language release is fast approaching, and this new trailer reminds us of what we’ve got to look forward to.

This latest trailer returns us to Persona’s Velvet Room, a dream space where you can sort through your captured personas and fuse them together to create more powerful beings.

Our old friend Igor is back, now rendered in slightly terrifying 3D, although his assistants Caroline and Justine are new. This time the room is rendered more like a prison that the game’s protagonist is captured in. Persona fusion is now depicted through lovingly-rendered executions, which is the kind of weird fun we’ve come to expect from the Persona series.

There’s a lot going on in Persona 5. The script will be one and a half times the size of Persona 5’s script, and that game went on forever.

It’s been a long, long wait for Persona fans, but P5 will finally release on April 4 for PS4 and PS3.

The PlayStation Critic’s Choice sale discounts last year’s best games

21 Feb

The PlayStation Store has a sale on some of the previous year’s strongest titles. Think of it as being like the Oscars, except you’re the only winner.

playstation_store_wide_header_1

The Critic’s Choice sale, which is currently live on the US store (but not yet here in Australia, it seems), cuts the prices of a whole heap of games. Few of these price cuts are super dramatic, but you can still save big on some great titles (I’m inclined to grab Darkest Dungeon at that price).

A few pre-2016 titles pop up in here as well, including Diablo 3, Life is Strange, and most of the games in the PS3 sale.

GTA 5: The Cold & The Dead is our new favourite Rockstar Editor movie

21 Feb

See Los Santos re-imagined as a brutal wasteland.

The Cold & The Dead is a new machinima project from AbsolutePab, the guy behind some of our favourite Rockstar Editor movies to date; Los Santos Vice and The Discriminating Visitor of Los Santos.

Episode 1, Aftermath, is a longer take than previous flicks, using GTA 5 on PC, the Rockstar Editor and numerous mods to create a brooding and brutal post-apocalyptic story – the opposite of Los Santos’ often sickly dayglo pop-culture overdose.

“The Cold & The Dead gives me the opportunity to work with an apocalyptic environment but also the freedom to move back and forth through time,” says Pab.

“I always thought an alternative to the consumerism of GTAV would have made an interesting DLC for story mode.”

Check out the full movie above and it goes without saying you should subscribe to Pabs’ channel on YouTube for future updates.

We’ve grabbed a few screenshots below to highlight some of the cinematography in The Cold & The Dead.

Metal Gear Solid movie may go the “Deadpool or Logan route,” says Kong: Skull Island director

21 Feb

Jordan Vogt-Roberts aims to make the type of movie “a Metal Gear megafan would be proud of.”

metal_gear_solid_5_the_phantom_pain

Fans worried a Metal Gear Solid movie may be as poor as other games-to-film adaptations should take comfort in the words and passion of director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Vogt-Roberts, who’s finishing up work on Kong: Skull Island, reckons he’s going to fight to make a real Metal Gear Solid movie.

“That is a property that I will fight tooth and nail to make sure is done properly because it’s so easy to screw it up and so easy for a studio to try and make it into G.I. Joe or try and make it into Mission: Impossible or try and make it into something that it’s not,” said Vogt-Roberts, to Collider.

“Unlike a comic book that’s had 40 writers or 100 writers over the course of a decade or two decades or whatever, for decades now Metal Gear Solid has essentially had one voice”

Highlighting the Metal Gear franchises’ ability to both play it straight and comedic, and swing from violence to cuddling dogs within minutes, Vogt-Roberts said he could work with any budget, indie or blockbuster, and that it might be a stripped back affair similar to recent acclaimed superhero movies.

“I want to make the version of the movie that is most true to what it needs to be, so if that is a Deadpool or Logan route where you go with a smaller budget and you’re able to make it R, great. If you need to blow it out more and really get that bigger budget and go PG-13, I think it could exist in both avenues.”

“There are hyper-violent parts to Metal Gear but I would not necessarily call the hyper-violent part the core element of it versus like the tone and the voice and the philosophies that the characters exhibit,” he added.

“Those characters sort of are these walking philosophies, so I think nailing that part is far more important necessarily than thinking about the rating at this point, because right now we’re just trying to get the best version of it.”

Vogt-Roberts has met with Kojima, and understands the Metal Gear series is ultimately based on the work of one man rather than a franchise that has grown with the input of multiple creatives.

“It is such a genius, idiosyncratic work and being able to spend time with [Hideo] Kojima recently has been like a dream,” he said.

“Unlike a comic book that’s had 40 writers or 100 writers over the course of a decade or two decades or whatever, for decades now Metal Gear Solid has essentially had one voice,” he said.

At this stage the Metal Gear Solid movie isn’t deep in development, with Vogt-Roberts only joining in 2014. The director is currently working with producers to get the feel of the game right so it doesn’t alienate fans, and he doesn’t seem bothered by the long history of ropey video game movies, either.

“It’s not even about being a video game movie, Metal Gear is an important story, an important set of characters. So it just needs to be approached right now from how we nail that.

“Right now I’m just working with incredible producers and trying to make a version that you or a Metal Gear megafan would be proud of and where people would be comfortable with that version to say, ‘I know this is different, I know this is not exactly the way a normal movie might go, but this is very Metal Gear’ and that is what will make random Joe Schmoe in Nebraska who has no idea what Metal Gear is, that is what will make them fall in love with this franchise and with Solid Snake and these people.”

Watch the full video above and breathe a sigh of relief that at this stage your beloved Metal Gear seems to be in pretty good hands.

Spend $100 on the PlayStation Store in North America, get $15 back

20 Feb

Sony wants to help you afford all those great games released so far this year.

psn

Sony has announced a nice promotion for those looking to pick up a few digital games through the PlayStation Store in the next few days. The offer is only available on the North American store.

If you spend $100 or more on anything on the store, you’ll receive a $15 cashback as a PSN Wallet voucher. Here’s the catch: all purchases have to come out of your PSN Wallet balance, not through your credit card or other means.

This means you’ll have to pre-charge your wallet either through your card, or by getting codes at retail. The promotion applies to purchases made between February 21 and February 28. The event kicks off at 12:01am PT, 3:01am PT on February 21. You’ll have until midnight PT, 3am ET on February 28 to take advantage.

As for the $15 voucher code, Sony said it will be set on or before March 14 either through email or as a direct message. Codes must be redeemed before midnight PT, 3am ET on March 31.

Keep in mind that you can use this on pre-orders and items on sale, but do note that you won’t get more than a single voucher – so spending $300 still only gets you $15 back.

Also, update 1.3 for consoles is “just around the corner,” according to the studio with the mobile version releasing afterward.

Re-Logic also described Terraria as a franchise with “so much life left in it,” in the post, and said it “cannot wait to share those plans in the months and years to come.”

Resident Evil 7 was the best-selling game of January 2017, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, other heavy-hitters play musical chairs

17 Feb

The NPD group has released hardware and software figures for January 2017 and it should come as no surprise that PlayStation 4 and Resident Evil 7 topped the respective sectors.

January 2017 NPD at a glance

Resident Evil 7 tops software charts

PS4 was best-selling console

PC software spend declined 12% year-over-year

All categories – accessories, hardware, software – down 4% year-over-year

Compare month-on-month: December 2016

Compare year-over-year: January 2016

While hardware sales declined, software was up 14% to $313 million. NPD attributed the increase to Resident Evil 7’s release, especially when comparing the year-over-year (yoy) release slates.

It’s also worth noting Resident Evil 7 was only on the market for five days when the NPD reporting period ended.

“With only five days in the market, Resident Evil 7 was the best-selling game in January,” said NPD analyst Sam Naji. “The last time Capcom had the best-selling game of the month (in dollar sales) was in March 2009 with Resident Evil 5.”

First-person shooters Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1 were still two of the best-selling games for the month, and neither title has fallen off the chart since release in fall 2016.

Overwatch also returned after dropping off the NPD software list in October.

The rise in sales could possibly be attributed to various discount offers or the Overwatch Year of the Rooster event; however, that’s just conjecture on our part as NPD didn’t elaborate on why Overwatch was once again charting. It was, however, one of the best-selling games of 2016 per NPD’s yearly report in January.

Action titles Grand Theft Auto 5 and Watch Dogs 2 also remained on the chart, while sports titles Madden NFL 17 and FIFA 17 remained popular with US consumers as well.

PC software came in at $16 million, a 12% decline yoy from $18 million.

NPD Software Top Ten January 2017

You’ll notice not much changed on the chart since December 2016, as the heavy hitters played musical chairs and that’s about it.

The biggest changes were the entry of new releases Resident Evil 7 and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue – the second best-selling PS4 title for the month.

Pokemon Sun and Moon and Final Fantasy 15 fell off the chart, and again, Overwatch reentered it.

The full NPD software chart is below, but keep in mind not all digital stores report sales data. Some publishers who sell through the PlayStation and Xbox Stores report data, but others do not. For example: Microsoft, Sony and Blizzard (Battle.net) do not report first-party sales.

  1. Resident Evil 7 (PS4, Xbox One)
  2. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
  3. Grand Theft Auto 5 (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
  4. Battlefield 1 (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
  5. NBA 2K17 (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
  6. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (PS4)
  7. Madden NFL 17 (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
  8. Watch Dogs 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
  9. Overwatch (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
  10. FIFA 17 (PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

This month, NPD also started reporting catalog sales of titles from the first six months of availability – starting with month seven (thanks, MCV). The winning publisher in the category for January 2017 was Take-Two and it was also the top publisher for 2016. NPD attributed this to continued sales of GTA 5.

NPD Hardware January 2017

Last week, the initial NPD report had PS4 topping hardware followed by Xbox One – which according to Microsoft enjoyed year-over-year (yoy) growth compared to January 2016.

PS4 sold the most units, with Xbox One coming in second place, and Nintendo’s Nintendo Classic Mini: NES in third.

“The PlayStation 4 was the best-selling hardware (in units sold) during January 2017,” said NPD analyst Sam Naji. “And for the fourth consecutive month, PlayStation 4 Slim System 500GB Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Bundle was the top-selling PS4 sku in terms of units sold.”

For the month of January 2017, hardware totaled $127 million, a decline of 19% yoy compared to $157 million in 2016.

Accessories declined 17% yoy to $155, with toys-to-life skus (ex: Skylanders, amiibo, Lego Dimensions) showing the biggest decline.

Total spent in the US on accessories, hardware and software for the month January hit $611 million. While that’s indeed as large figure, it’s 4% less compared to $637 million spent in 2016.

NPD said the lower figure was due to a decline in hardware sales and general lack of growth.

All of PS Now games saves stored in the cloud are still accessible on both PS4 and PC.

Sony said if customer wish to discontinue their subscription, be sure to disable auto-renewal in the account settings so the subscription ends by April 1 on the 2016 Sony Bravia TVs, and August 15 for the other devices.

The notice was posted for both North American and European customers.
