The release of Pokémon GO may just be the software hint that Nintendo may perhaps be releasing an Augmented Reality console capable of being played also as mobile device. Total speculation on our part but Nintendo has been known to go in completely new areas for gaming. Augmented Reality may not be a stretch for a Nintendo console.
With the advent of console upgrades upon us Microsoft surely sent a clear message that they intend to make upgrading your game console an experience you will want. Lost in the conversation of whether or not the announced Project Scorpio is a good or bad thing is the fact that Sony’s announced.
So September 2017 will be the month we finally get to play the developer team mash up of Armature and Comcept one being responsible for story/universe and the other core development. What we’ve seen from this game is very complete single player experience which has not really been a great expansive area for Xbox platforms. With Recore it looks very deep, and original in game play which oddly enough comes across as evolving a story, and world as you go. That’s a very exciting thing that now will exist on the Xbox One in Recore.
The emergence of both the PS4 and Xbox One as equivalents to mid-tier PC gaming rigs, as well PC like architectures has offered both platforms the ability to embrace aspects of PC gaming that really are cool. Since the launch of the PS4 there have been several free-to-play titles like “Warframe”, “Blacklight Retribution”, “DC Universe Online” and others. Games that are generally aimed at a PC audience that do not ask for money upfront, but rather instead offer in game microtransactions which ask players to purchase items that make their gaming experience better. This could be in the form of upgraded armor, weapons, vehicles, or rare items. In some cases both platforms have the ability to allow wannabe developers who create mods for PC games to have those mods migrate over to their console counterpart. Obviously it’s up to how developer create Free-to-play games that make them that or Pay-to-play games. The great thing is that there are many examples of games using this business model that really push gaming forward & deserve a place at our console tables.
With just 6 days left till E3 2016 everyone and everything is on deck for Sony to have a big conference. Especially with all the rumors swirling around an upgraded Playstation 4 set to premiere alongside the Playstation VR. We also have games to look forward to such as game-play footage of “The Last Guardian” a game ten years in the making. There should be more games that will showcase what Sony has planned as last years presentation mainly talked about games that would not be out in 2016, so we should be getting updates to them as well.
Aloy is an outcast, being protected, and kept in the dark from questions about the world. The reveal story trailer for Playstation 4’s Horizon Zero Dawn shows even more gorgeous destinations that gamers will explore, and vanglorious machine beasts that we will encounter in the game. Except it won’t be this fall, as the game will now be delayed until February 28, 2017.
The launch Xbox One is not the same one that the same as the proposed one that Microsoft spoke about in the Spring of 2013. In fact the Xbox One had one of the best launches of any console in gaming history. So why do fake journalists, and agenda gaming writers continue to say that the Xbox One had a bad launch? What Microsoft’s Xbox One has suffered from is agenda politics in the gaming press, and propaganda. This is about the Xbox One launch that never happened.
Microsoft has been doing a pretty good job with their gaming program for Games With Gold. Not every month is stellar, but for the most part gamers are getting exposed to titles that they normally would have not been for whatever reason. Since price is not a barrier, and nothing is better than free. Let’s see what June 2016 holds for Xbox gamers.
Microsoft has yet to really show off what cloud technology can do, and with Crackdown 3 supposedly wowing people behind closed doors. The Xbox One is poised to be a truly powerful baseline console even in the face of Xbox One Scorpio landing as a mid-tier console platform that can play VR games. There may be other novel tech ideas Microsoft maybe experimenting with in line with Windows 10. Essentially making Xbox Scorpio the premium answer for power hungry gamers looking to get a stable console, but not totally become PC gamers. Even for the PC Microsoft now has a console strategy that wholly invites exclusive gaming in a big way. If developers take advantage of what’s on the table, this gives them leverage in the gaming space we may not have seen from afar.

Yesterday Microsoft sent a seismic shift to the collective gaming universe when they announced that Quantum Break the once console exclusive to the Xbox One would emerge on the PC day & date of it’s release.

So far the 7th generation of the console gaming sector has gotten off to an interesting start. It’s one that exists in a place where expectations have been exceeded, once mighty publishers are once again on top, and clarity versus truth fight in a vacuum outside of what should be known. Microsoft, and Sony consoles […]
