Battleborn for PS4, Xbox One Unveiled by Borderlands Devs

Battleborn

Gearbox Software, developers of the revered Borderlands games, are working on a new title called Battleborn for PS4 and Xbox One. Battleborn has been dubbed a "hero-shooter" by the dev team, as it combines fast-paced first-person shooting with cooperative combat by a variety of diverse heroes. Set in a distant future, Battleborn tells a story of players whose only hope for the last star in a dying universe is a new breed of warriors who must put aside their differences to drive back an unstoppable menace. The basic premise sounds cliche, but … [Read more...]

Xbox One Games List for 2014: Exclusives and Others

Halo Master Chief Collection for Xbox One

The Xbox One games list has been panned by thousands of critics as being too short, especially where Xbox One exclusives are concerned. Frankly the PS4 hasn't fared much better, though you wouldn't know it by the latest PS4 sales results (7 million and counting). A quick look at the Xbox One games list for 2014 shows things might be turning around for Microsoft, though. The Xbox One vs. PS4 argument isn't anywhere near subsiding, with EA being the latest company to say the 2014 holiday is poised to be a "great fight." Part of the reason it's … [Read more...]

Far Cry 4 PS3 and PS4 Exclusive Keys to Kyrat Mode

Far Cry 4

Multiplayer gaming is often easier on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, but a Far Cry 4 PS3 and PS4 exclusive Keys to Kyrat multiplayer "mode" may throw that assumption aside. Keys to Kyrat, which is the only Far Cry 4 PS3 and PS4 exclusive content, allows any PlayStation owner to invite a few of their PSN friends to tackle the open-world game together. What's so special about a multiplayer game invitation? The fact that the invitation from a Far Cry 4 owner will let even people who don't own the game participate in the fun. (FYI, you can pre-order Far … [Read more...]

PlayStation Now Streaming PS3 Games Come to Sony TVs Monday

Sony PS3 PlayStation 3

With the PlayStation Now beta just now rolling-out to PS3 and PS4 owners, Sony's also throwing a bone to consumers who haven't paid for one of the company's shiny game consoles. Starting next week (in July), PlayStation Now streaming PS3 games will begin to appear on Sony Bravia TVs. It's interesting for several reasons that Sony's making select Bravia TVs get PlayStation Now streaming PS3 games. Perhaps the most interesting reason is that Sony's not even one year removed from the launch of its PlayStation 4 console. Presumably the company … [Read more...]

Tomb Raider

Microsoft this week added two new games to the Xbox One June Deals With Gold program, with Tomb Raider and Strider getting discounts until June 23. These two Xbox One Deals with Gold specials reflect a 50% discount from their normal retail price. The week after E3 always risks being a letdown of sorts for gamers, but that doesn't seem to be the case this year. Tomb Raider is a particularly good game, so to see it for 50% off is a nice gesture. Microsoft's Deals with Gold program is not to be confused with the Games with Gold program. The … [Read more...]
