Leaked promo reveals a sweet new Xbox One feature you won’t see on the PS4

by Jacob Siegal Game demos had a minor resurgence during the last generation. A quick search on either the PlayStation Store or the Xbox Marketplace brings up hundreds of results for demos of PS3 and Xbox 360 games, but the same can’t be said for PS4 and Xbox One. We haven’t heard much from either console maker regarding the future of game demos, but one Reddit user might have uncovered Microsoft’s plans. Based on the image above, it looks like Microsoft is planning to implement a program called “Free Play Day with Gold” at some point in the near future. The tag appears below Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, a game which just recently got the Games with Gold treatment […]

Robin Williams’ Genie to be immortalized in World of Warcraft

by Danielle Riendeau Wowhead.com, a World of Warcraft database site, found an NPC called “Robin ,” in the data for the upcoming WOW expansion Warlords of Draenor. The NPC is associated with a 3D model that looks an awful lot like “Genie,” the chatty genie that Williams voiced in Disney’s popular animated film, Aladdin. The model appears to be a djinn. There are two other Robin NPCs, also coming in with patch 6.01. The character’s presence appears to confirm the story last week that the beloved actor (who died on Aug. 11) would be immortalized in the game. Genie is one of Williams’ most well-known performances, and Aladdin one of Disney’s highest grossing films of the 1990s. WOW super fan […]

Tom Clancy’s The Division GamesCom Xbox One Demo Jaw Dropping, DX12 A Big Deal Especially For Next-Gen GPUs/CPUs

by Sehran Shaikh Ubisoft showcased Tom Clancy’s The Division at GamesCom 2014 but not to the general public. It was a behind-closed doors demonstration on Xbox One. How exactly was the demo? We finally have an impression and it is coming from an insider source—Justin Robey, Senior Producer on Sunset Overdrive, Ryse: Son of Rome and Scalebound. Justin Robey via Twitter stated: “Saw The Division running on Xbox One. Jaw dropping gorgeous. Steam and environments were unreal. Gameplay also looked to be solid. Sold!” He further clarified Tom Clancy’s: The Division demo was indeed running on Xbox One and it went from dashboard to in-game, and he is not circulating fake or made-up information: “Not messing with you at all.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 leaked

by ‘Brian’ Images discovered on the official Xbox website have revealed the existence of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. First, the Xbox website hosts the Revelations 2 box art above. There’s also a single screenshot located on the same “download.xbox” domain. The box art indicates that Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will be on the Xbox 360, but it’ll likely end up on the PlayStation 3 and PC as well. PS4 and Xbox One versions would not be at all surprising either. http://www.gamersoutpost.net/

Uncharted 4′s Nathan Drake Looks Different, Now Looks a Lot Like a Certain Actor

by Gaf Hussain With each iteration of Uncharted, Nathan Drake appears to looks slightly different. He originally was compared with Nathan Fillion, leading to rumors (or more like hopes) that the Firefly actor would eventually play the treasure hunter and adventurer Nathan Drake in a movie. However, in Uncharted 4, Nathan Drake looks like a different person yet again, and he looks more like a famous Hollywood actor. Could Naughty Dog have done the same thing they did with The Last of Us and accidentally create a main character that looks like a real life actor? Or are they doing this intentionally so when a film is announced, they already have an actor who slots right in? We couldn’t help […]

The lead developer on the Xbox 360 xenia project, (who wished to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) has recently made some promising comments about emulating the seventh generation console from Microsoft. Per him “Author here. Yeah, the readme is meant to scare off people. Even with it I still get people on IRC or email asking me if they can play game X or where they can get a copy. The note about no downloads is for all those who download 360 emulators from shady YouTube links and such – there’s a surprising number of fakes packed with malware and viruses floating […]
