Is Nintendo Making A Mistaking With The NX?

Nintendo has confirmed that its next-gen console, the Nintendo NX, will launch in March 2017. Causing many to screw up their Christmas lists, the company told shareholders during its earnings call on Tuesday: “For our dedicated video game platform business, Nintendo is currently developing a gaming platform codenamed ‘NX’ with a brand-new concept. NX will be launched in March 2017 globally.” Probably also causing some to cancel a trip to Los Angeles, Nintendo said that the...

Who Is To Blame For The Oculus Rift Delay?

Software giant Microsoft has moved to deny a daft internet rumor that it was responsible for the ongoing Oculus Rift supply issues. Oculus Rift customers were kept in the dark about the delays following the 28 March release date. Oculus confirmed that a component shortage was to blame for the long delays in supplying its VR headset to those who had pre-ordered.  Then a rumour started that the mysterious “missing component” was actually the Xbox One control pad. The rumour got a fair...

Is Rockstar Getting Sued Over GTA?

Former Rockstar North studio head Leslie Benzies is suing the company for $150 million alleging “numerous deceptions” from Take-Two, Rockstar, and Sam and Dan Houser. Christopher Bakes, a partner with the Locke Lord law firm representing Benzies, issued a statement regarding the suit today, saying Rockstar’s official story of how he left the Grand Theft Auto studio was a lie. In September of 2014, Benzies went on sabbatical from Rockstar North. This January, the studio released...

South Side Chicago-Gets A Video Game

When was the last time you played as a black character in a game who wasn’t either a) the sidekick to a strapping white dude or b) a stereotypical gang member? We Are Chicago, from Indie studio Culture Shock, offers something different: a realistic representation of the life of a person of color in Chicago’s South Side neighborhoods. “It was interesting to think about how you make a game about something that’s actually happened, a true story, and still give the player agency,”...

Will Quantum Break Be A Blast For Microsoft?

Will Quantum Break Be A Blast For Microsoft?

In an age of viral media and ubiquitous social networks, it’s rare to encounter a major AAA release surrounded by so much uncertainty. Quantum Break has likely been in full development since 2012, when Remedy Entertainment launched Alan Wake: American Nightmare, and it has been a shining beacon in the Xbox One’s line-up since Microsoft unveiled the console a year later. Was Microsoft bankrolling an exclusive answer to Uncharted’s slick, story-driven adventure? Was its furtive marriage...

Is The Call Of Duty Game Headed To Space?

The next installment of first-person shoot-and-crouch game Call of Duty will take place in space, according to reports, and will not be a direct sequel to Ghosts. Reports from as far and wide as Eurogamer and Shinobi have this as a pretty sure thing, and we do not consider it an unbelievable proposition. There have been a few Call of Duty games so far and they have all been terrestrial. The canon has strayed into the near future, but has not yet gone the extra mile into the far future. Going into...

Is nVidia Going Linux To Support Gamers?

The dark satanic rumor mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn claiming that Nvidia is working on its own Linux OS for gamers. A slide has tipped up showing a screen capture of an installer screen for this operating system supposedly going by the “NLINUX” codename at NVIDIA. Not much to go on, but it does appear that Nvidia is looking at creating a distribution for gamers similar to that operated by Valve. It is hard to see what Nvidia would get out of it. Nvidia also has its SHIELD...

Is Nintendo Getting Back In Virtual Reality?

The dark satanic rumor mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn which claims that the outfit which nearly killed off VR gaming with its “Virtual Boy” wants to get back into the industry. More than 20 years ago Nintendo came up with its $179.95 Virtual Boy it was marketed as the first “portable” video game console capable of displaying “true 3D graphics.” It failed because it was too pricey, was not really portable and made users sick. It was pulled within a year and was...

Is This The Year For Nintendo’s NX?

Last year, it was loose lips in the supply chain for console manufacture, now it’s seemingly loose lips within Nintendo’s own marketing department, but there’s a common thread to every leak or rumour that spreads about the platform holder these days – they all point to a late 2016 launch for the company’s next console platform, codenamed NX. The numbers Nintendo was said to be targeting for NX that were floated around from sources at overseas parts suppliers checked...

Will Xbox-As-A-Service Work?

Software giant Microsoft is planning to get its Xbox business back in gear by making it follow the same sort of business model which worked for it on Microsoft office. CEO Satya Nadella said that Microsoft has shifted its focus away from trying to strong-arm competitors out of the market, and towards a future of providing apps and services on the iPhones, Android phones, and Macs. For example Microsoft Office is already on a subscription-based service available via the Internet. With the Office 365...

Will Nintendo Get Into Virtual Reality Gaming?

Nintendo’s earnings report and briefing earlier this week were a bit of a damp squib for anyone hoping for more information on the company’s future plans; on NX and on smartphone games alike, the company remained utterly silent. We found out that you’ll be able to pre-register for the Miitomo smartphone app on the 17th of February, with the app itself to launch in March, but you’d have to be a truly ardent follower of Nintendo’s fortunes for that to create more than...

Nintendo Keeps Drop Year Over Year

Nintendo’s finances took a dip in the company’s third quarter report for FY 2015 – sales stayed relatively stable with just 3.9 per cent shrinkage to 427.7 billion Yen ($3.5bn), but profits dropped by 32 per cent year-on-year to 40.5 billion Yen ($336m).

Top seller was Child friendly Wii U shooter Splatoon, shifting over four million...

Is Capcom Finally Getting Into eSports?

On February 16, Street Fighter V will launch on PlayStation 4 and PC. It will not be launching to Xbox One thanks to an exclusivity deal signed with Sony. And as Capcom director of brand marketing and eSports Matt Dahlgren told GamesIndustry.biz recently, there are a few reasons for that. Dahlgren called the deal “the largest strategic partnership that fighting games have ever seen,” and said it addressed several problems the publisher has had surrounding its fighting games for years. “Basically...
