With the launch of Xbox One X, we have ushered in a new era of console gaming in which a console can run games at native 4K. While PS4 Pro is a powerful console, but it is not powerful enough to compete with Xbox One X and that is why we will discuss the things we want in the upcoming Sony PlayStation 5. Sony Interactive Entertainment has noted that it intends to continue with console business for a foreseeable future and is already considering the direction for PS5. “Our game subsidiary is discussing which direction to take — how to use a big platform like the PlayStation going forward. Generally speaking, I don’t think it is a good idea to drop consoles entirely since we seek to offer the platform worldwide.” PlayStation 5 – Things We Want While Sony Interactive Entertainment has been very vague about the next iteration of PlayStation but, there have been many hints throughout the last year about the next PlayStation and here is out Wishlist … [Read more...] about Sony PlayStation 5 Release Date And Everything We Want To See (Analyst Speculation And Wishlist)
November was a big month for new video game releases, but which sold the best? The NPD Group today released its report covering game sales in the US, revealing that the perennial powerhouse franchise, Call of Duty, was No. 1 again with Call of Duty: WWII. Rounding out the top five were Star Wars: Battlefront II, Assassin's Creed: Origins, NBA 2K18, and Madden NFL 18.After just one month, Call of Duty: WWII is now the best-selling game of 2017 and the top-seller for the rolling 12-month period ended November 2017. The game drove the most revenue for any Call of Duty since the massively successful Call of Duty: Black Ops II in 2012. This kind of success was expected, given that Activision already said Call of Duty: WWII sales doubled that of the underperforming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at launch.Also of note is that the controversy surrounding Star Wars: Battlefront II didn't keep people away, or at least not enough to push the game further down the chart. It was never going to … [Read more...] about Top 20 Best-Selling Games In The US For November 2017
Four days from today, Nintendo's latest console will go on sale. A little over four years since the launch of Wii U, a little over four months since Nintendo announced Switch, and to many, the system seems like a breath of fresh air — a game console Transformer full of potential with a steady stream of software to back it up. To some, though, the system seems incomplete. From early reports of controllers that don't properly sync to a limited launch lineup, a lack of non-game apps like Netflix, a missing Virtual Console library and lingering questions about the online service, there's a simplicity to Switch's launch that recalls the '90s — Zelda is Mario 64, and if you don't want that or a few other games, you might not need the system right away. In time, Nintendo will address those issues. Yet more than most consoles, Switch remains a bit of a mystery at launch. Are motion controls going to be a big part of it? What type of player will Switch developers cater to? And will … [Read more...] about What the game industry thinks of Nintendo’s Switch
