As predicted, Vivendi is looking to buy more shares in Ubisoft. Definitely going for a takeover.

Yves Guillemot met with Canadian officials to gather support and to look around for some investors.

I didn't catch it in the Direct, but did they say if Sun/Moon are (or are not) coming out for the 3DS? They didn't ambiguously leave the possibility of it coming out on NX or something out there did they?

Vivendi owned both Activision and Blizzard (and Sierra) and ended up selling their shares after they got a new CEO. Now they have a new CEO who wants to buy every Frnch media company ever, apparently.

Yeah, it's 3DS. People are pissed about it because it "won't be as good", but it's goddamn Pokemon, not a technical showpiece.

Don't really care to see a WWI battlefield. Would rather they follow COD's lead and go futuristic. Maybe a sequel to 2142, which is an underappreciated entry in the series.

Today's News:
1) SALES & FREEBIES:
2) According to reports, Vivendi Entertainment has ramped up efforts at a hostile ownership takeover of both Ubisoft and Gameloft to the point Ubisoft has become deeply worried. At the moment, Vivendi currently owns more stock than Ubisoft's founders (15% vs 9%), Ubisoft rejected two recent offers for Gameloft (highest being $663 million), and Ubisoft is scrambling to find new investors to fight off the attempts.
http://www.destructoid.com/ubisoft-p...r-345520.phtml

3) Newest Nintendo NX rumors includes the controller featuring advanced feedback support, console architecture is very close to the PS4 and Xbox One while dev kits allow almost zero work needed for porting games, and is heavily influenced by mobile gaming for social media support.
http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/...le-unexpected/

4) Sony announced they are discontinuing support for the Playstation TV after a little over two years on the market in Japan and a little over a year in the West.

Yep.

How's Playstation Now doing? Did that ever pick up steam? They should just change that over to a year subscription thing or a small add-on fee for PS+ users.

Think they've recently added a lot of games for it but probably like a lot of things with the Playstation name tact on, not doing that well either or else they would have boasted about its success a lot by now.

Think it also lost a lot of luster once Microsoft started their own backwards compatibility-like program for the Xbox One and it being free.

Depending how this unfolds, I may just go back to PC gaming and stay there forever.

Or get one of the good consoles.

PC gaming is in a strange limbo at the moment where requirements are all over the place. Compatibility seems to be having a bad time in the last year too.

Your usage of "good" is subjective. Nothing wrong with the One and I would still, to this day, take it over the PS4 because I couldn't care less if all games are 1080p 60fps and w/e the hell else everyone raves about.

I use it for much more than gaming and it serves very well as a single box with multiple, great usage. More reliable network and better offerings IMO.

It didn't occur to me you already had a One for some reason (my stupidity). I don't think it's an entirely terrible console, I just think it's a dropped ball in a series of dropped balls by MS. The stuff moving to PC as Xbox 'apps' is messy and it's clear they don't want to be in the console business any more but they're married to it.

At first I was all for PS4 when Xbox made their now famous E3 show. Then they backpedaled on some things and won me over.... but it was literally down to the moment I was standing in the store.

I don't regret the decision, but the future as they spelled it out (at least on the Surface) sounds awful.

Think Microsoft had been hinting about wanting to merge PC gaming and console gaming going all the way back with the original Xbox. Could have happened way sooner had they not bungled their "Games for Windows" service multiple times.

To a smaller degree, both Nintendo and Sony have hinted or been trying to merge things together like console and handheld gaming (Nintendo) or expand into more areas (Sony).

The Xbox was Microsoft making a move into the living room. The One was them trying to double down on the TV aspect of it, but it was far too late to the dance when most TVs have built in features, and you can get stuff like Chromecasts for next to nothing.

I don't think this is them merging PC and Console, I think this is them retreating. The fight for the living room is lost, for the foreseeable future.

Today's News:
1) For those waiting for a pre-launch or Day One review of The Division, Ubisoft stated it won't happen since no review codes are being sent until the game goes live. Official reason given was related to the always online nature of the game.

2) SALES & FREEBIES:
3) EA announced Mass Effect: Andromeda will not arrive this year and instead is currently planned for an early 2017 release.
http://www.destructoid.com/mass-effe...6-345957.phtml

4) EA also announced they will not be investing in Virtual Reality gaming until combined headsets sales starts to reach the 50 million range due to high costs they are estimating for game development ($50-$100 million range).
http://www.destructoid.com/ps4-and-x...o-345942.phtml

That hurts with Andromeda not getting out this year.

Back end of the year is looking pretty bleak for games right now.

To be fair, I assume most people who like good games will have their hands full with Yakuza 0.

Honestly, there's so many good games coming out throughout the year that are ones to sink stupid amounts of hours into that it'll balance out. Persona 5 and FFXV (unless there's more delays to laugh at) in one year? E3 hasn't happened yet and publishers must also have taken notice at just how good the lack of dragging out marketing was for Fallout 4.

Last Guardian is this year too. So pumped if that gets dated at E3.

So basically the One is becoming a media center PC with a more 'shuttle' like form factor instead of a traditional desktop.

Didn't PCs do that in like......06?

This news really irks me. I got the One close to launch unfortunately so I overpaid and got stuck with a pointless kinect. Oh well, I dealt with that. Now you're telling me you will be releasing more hardware updates ala PC....does this mean games will come with differing settings now or will i have to update my One to play newer games? The reason I buy consoles is because I don't have to update them for long periods and still get all the new games....and now these dicks are taking that from me. Shenanigans. Fucking Shenanigans. Tom foolery even.

Red face

It's happening, Phil Spencer actually said:

Quote:
You'll actually see us come out with new hardware capability during a generation allowing the same games to run backward and forward compatible
There's going to be a redesign at some point in this generation.

Quote:
Look at what is going on in the PC/Phones (specifically mentions 2 years for phones) ecosystem in terms of visuals and screen technology improving over time as an idea of an iterative console. Making a cheaper and smaller console overtime is "important" but wants to make sure taking your games with you and games improving is important.

Makes a point that backwards/forwards compatibility is incredibly important. Phil says Microsoft wants that to be a driving force for the platform.
Basically, your current XBox One will run games throughout the generation, but the re-design might run them at a higher detail. He's talked a lot about backwards/forwards compatibility so I don't see a point where they fuck over the people that actually supported them since the console has pretty much bombed so far everywhere other than the US and UK.

Can't see it ever being a case of you picking settings either. Betting the game will pick the settings based on the console it's booted on.

Wait - what's wrong with this idea? Is it saying we're gonna have to get new SKUs often or are they saying there will be more variations that play the same games as varying fidelity?

If it's the latter then I don't see an issue unless the distinction will be tantamount to CoD Blops III current vs last gen versions. If we're talking some difference in resolution and such than that's already a choice I made getting an Xbone over a PS4 or PC.

I just wanna get a sense of what's to fear because my only worry is not being able to play what I want with my buds.
