Will Ninja Theory’s Hellblade Make A Profit?

Ninja Theory’s Hellblade will need to sell only 300,000 units to recoup its development budget. After releasing a string of AAA console titles to varying levels of commercial success, the UK-based studio is attempting to establish what it describes as a “third way” of making games – one that falls somewhere between what we have traditionally called AAA and Indie. Smaller scale, lower cost, with no sacrifices made in terms of creative risks and quality of execution. “We’re...

BlackEnergy Malware Wreaking Havoc On Industrial Control Systems

Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT) has warned that industrial control systems (ICS) in the US have been compromised by the BlackEnergy malware for at least two years.

It uses a malicious decoy document to hide its activities, making it easier for the hackers to mount follow-up attacks. US-CERT said the malware campaign is sophisticated and “ongoing”, and attackers taking...

In a celestial surprise, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has identified a cloud of methane ice high in the stratosphere of Saturn’s huge moon Titan. “The idea that methane clouds could form this high on Titan is completely new,” study lead author Carrie Anderson, a Cassini participating scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, said in a statement. “Nobody considered that possible before.” Anderson and her colleagues spotted the methane...

Is nVidia’s Tegra K1 Being Shunned?

Nvidia Tegra TK1 is being shunned by major phone designers as if it were suffering from ebola, our industry sources have confirmed. It looks like that 2013 is the year of Qualcomm and that every significant design win has Qualcomm processor inside. Mediatek is trying the Tegra TK1with the entry level phones but they still have to prove themselves in the mainstream and high end phones that the European or USA phone market craves. They could get there in time, but didn’t manage it in 2013. Tegra...

How Far Should Video Games Go With Violence?

Video game violence has been in the spotlight for over two decades now. When Senator Joe Lieberman chaired a subcommittee in 1993 after seeing the violence in Mortal Kombat, the mainstream media started paying close attention. And just five months later, the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) was born and assigned Mortal Kombat an “M” for Mature rating. This was undoubtedly a good thing. In the years following, the board continued to tweak its ratings and in combination with retail...

New Procedure Developed To Discover Einstein’s Gravity Waves

Gravitational waves, invisible ripples in the fabric of space and time, might be detected by looking for the brightening of stars, researchers say. These mysterious ripples were first proposed by Albert Einstein as part of his theory of general relativity. The waves’ size depends on the mass of the objects creating them. “Gravitational waves are emitted by accelerating masses,” said lead study author Barry McKernan, an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History in...
