Microsoft Removes Japanese Batman: Arkham Knight’s Page While The Crew JP Beta Is Also PS4 Exclusive

by Giuseppe Nelva This morning Warner Bros. announced that Batman: Arkham Knight will be a PS4 exclusive in Japan, but didn’t mention if said exclusivity would be permanent or temporary. Apparently, it’s a rather permanent affair, as Microsoft was forced to remove its official page dedicated to the game, which still scheduled the Xbox One version for 2015 for a few hours after the announcement. You can see it above for the posterity. Now it simply leads to a broken link. But that’s not all: Ubisoft Japan also opened today the registrations for the Japanese beta of The Crew, and the publisher announced that the testing will be done exclusively on PS4 as well. For the moment the game itself […]

Sound issue reported on Kinectless Xbox Ones

by ‘Anders’ It seems like many new Xbox One owners are reporting a specific issue, since the console has launched in Tier 2 countries a few days ago. The problem occurs on Kinectless consoles, and it consists of a loud buzzing or rattling sound when the console is idle (for example, when it is in the dashboard). Of course it is difficult to say how widespread the problem is, but is seems like quite a few are experiencing it, based on the 500+ posts in the Xbox Support forums on this problem. Other forums, including NeoGAF, report this issue as well. On Twitter, the hashtag #xboxnoise has been launched in order to draw attention to the problem. It is unclear […]

The new iPhone 6 Plus “will play games in higher resolution than next gen consoles”

by Marco Bessey Editor in Chief of TouchArcade, Eli Hodapp tweets during the unveiling of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that the latter “will play games in higher resolution than next generation consoles.” The truth is, it really will. But can the iPhone 6 Plus also deliver the processing firepower to run triple A titles? Theoretically, yes it can. While all the hype over the iPhone 6 and iOS8 is sizzling in Cupertino at the moment, let’s step back a bit and revisit WWDC. During that event, Apple senior vice president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi introduced “iOS 8 Metal” which is meant to provide “near bare to the metal access to the power of A8.” What does […]

Destiny Gets Day One Patch to Version 1.02; Weighs Almost 300 MB on PS4

by Giuseppe Nelva If you have the disc version of Destiny, or have completed its preload, you’re gonna have some more downloading to do, as Bungie released a day one (actually, day minus-two) patch that updates the game to version 1.02. At the moment the changelog of the patch is not available, so we don’t know what it fixes or improves, but considering the online nature of the game we can expect more down the line. The patch weighs 296 Mb on PS4, and no, if you’re wondering, it doesn’t allow access to the game. We’re going to have to wait a bit more for that. http://www.gamersoutpost.net/
