Ubisoft what are you thinking?

Posted: February 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

With the news of Rayman legends not being a Nintendo exclusive but also being delayed until Sept got me to thinking. Hey Ubisoft I understand that you want to capitalize on your game but there’s some factors you’ve overlooked. Sony is more likely to be announcing their new console PlayStation Feb. 20, and I’m sure Xbox shortly announcing theirs why would you release this finished game on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Around this time of the year these next-gen systems will be on the horizon and will draw attention from the very platform you plan to port this game over. It confusing me on how you feel you will win in this debate, plus not to mention new games out by Nintendo and other publishers. This gem will be over shadowed by these new games and then the lost of money, remember origins didn’t sale well until the price cut. So again explain to those who waited for this game to be release this month would not benefit your company and game sales. Not a smart moved reconsider this decision and get more bang for your buck now then lose it later.

Mircosoft Says NO to secondhand games?

Posted: February 7, 2013 in Xbox

Microsoft New Console code-name Durango is rumored to have a function that won’t let second-hand games to be played on that system. This feature (if implemented) will hurt companies that provide secondhand  games, Gamestop and Gamefly will be hit the hardest if this feature will be included with the new console. However, if they do go ahead with this I would hope that they provide an incomplete demo of every game that will be coming to their console.  Try it before you buy it.

Sony’s PlayStation Vita just celebrated its year anniversary and is looking to slash its sales by 3 million due to the company’s drop in their year to year sales by 15% for the system’s hardware and software. The PS Vita and PSP are one in the same in the market but the combine systems was not enough to off set the forecast for the 3 million forecast set last year. Here’s hoping the PS vitas picks up with the coming of new software in the months ahead.

With the save the date PlayStation event on Feb. 20 all the blogs and gaming sites are hoping for the unveiling of the company’s new home console PlayStation 4. However there’s been no conformation on what this event might present from Sony but the rumor mill is ablaze. Then there’s the cost off this new console the rumored specs have been floating around since the concept of the system been announced. Sony’s system is poised to be a powerful machine but at what cost to the consumer, many are hoping for a 400-450 price range. The future seems aglow for the PlayStation 4 for now and the world will be watching on Feb 20.
