Welcome to our weekly post of featured downloadable content available for different gaming platforms sponsored by www.evopoints.co.za.Hit the jump for this week’s list of fresh downloadable games and content.
We already know that Sony has sold 2.1 million Playstation 4s, but how many can we expect to be sold in its lifetime? There are so many variables at play here, but Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House believes the PS4 will surpass the PS3 in sales.
There’s no doubting that the controllers from both the PlayStation family and Xbox family have changed over the years, more so the Xbox family however did you ever notice that the spacing and size of the PlayStation buttons hasn’t changed in twenty years?
Gran Turismo 6 is out today, ahead of the date I had personally expected it to be released. It’s not yet 2097. Still, it’s out today. Is it the best racing simulation available on consoles, or has that microtransaction nonsense ruined the game?
Remember when Activision decided to take three 99c mobile games, put them on console and charge you $40 for it? Yes, they actually had the gall to repackage Angry Birds for consoles, add in some arm waving and charge way more for it than logic and sense dictate. They recently did it again, with Angry Birds Star Wars. It looks like they’ll be doing it one more time.
This year’s Call of Duty is the first in quite some time to not be heaped with lavish critical praise which suggests to some that the series is running out of steam. Many have bemoaned the copy and paste nature of the annualised games for years, but despite that Call of Duty has had an undeniable quality or some sort of spark – which critics feel is lacking a bit with Ghosts. Doesn’t matter to Activision though.
Pretty much every racing game these days has microtransactions of some sort, and Gran Turismo is joining that racket with their own form of unlocking cars early on instead of earning them. But sweet Le Mans, those prices are ludicrously insane.
Earlier his week saw the release of the China Rising DLC for Battlefield 4, which as excited some players – but left many others feeling cold. the reason? The game they bought last month still isn’t working properly, regardless of the platform. As a result, DICE has now put expansions for the game on the backburner, to get the game that they’ve already released working properly.
The latest issue of Game Informer has dropped, and thanks to the magic of it being PRINT, it had plenty of details on the upcoming star-based trooping game Destiny from Bungie. Do you want to know more?
So after the absolutely disgusting debacle that was Ashes Cricket 2013 it looks like us cricket fans are going to be saved by the great Australian cricketer, Don Bradman.
I love Steam, and my backlog over there is extensive. However, I still believe that we need to support retailers or eventually we will be completely dependent on digital distribution. Over at Kalahari, they're running a massive sale with some prices rivalling that of Steam.
We’ve posted a few articles this year stating that Sony are going to be showing more adverts on the PlayStation 4 UI and generally we get shot down for implying that. Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news, even though I love being right, but PlayStation are getting into selling advertising in a big way.
YouTube channel “LiveUnknownHacks” and user “Funmw2” has leaked four videos of what appears to be the upcoming content creator for the PS3 version of GTA 5. these are apparently the same people who leaked the audio detailing races and casinos in the Beach Bum DLC.
The description of the above video states that this is an old version of the content creator that’s been in game files since Rockstar used it in the online gameplay trailer. In update 1.06, apparently the file size for the creator has changed, but hasn’t been tested yet.
“Hi , I'm Funmw2 ( who leaked Audio Files about New DLC Like Casino ) .
First The Content Creator is already in game files .
but this version of content creator is old ( when rockstar was using it in GTA Online Gameplay video )
in update 1.06 , the creator file size has been changed .
i will try the new version of creator .
maybe it have Mission Creator , because this version Only Races/Deathmatches”
The videos are short, the longest being five minutes in length. The first video shows placing weapon spawns in a parking lot. The second shorter video below briefly shows placing the lobby camera and spawn points. A prompt from the game states that maps cannot be underground or inside a building.
The third video shows how maps can be edited from ground level in order to fine tune things. You can also walk around your map to get a feel for where you want things placed. A prompt from the game states that missions must be tested before they can be published. A good 30 or so weapon spawns are placed before the game complains about there being too many. I can imagine some stricter limitations on objects like cars and structures.
The final and longest video shows placing vehicles and props and changing the global radio station. It also shows creating a land race. The sea and air races are locked until you publish your first land race. Setting up the type of race, available vehicles, stunt jump markers ,mission markers and checkpoints are all shown.
Some interesting stuff shown here indeed. It is unknown whether there are further limitations such as size and placement for maps. For now, this serves as a sign of things to come. Bring on user created content!
If you’ve been playing Battlefield 4 since release and are getting a bit tired of the standard maps, then rejoice! New maps are coming today via the China Rising DLC. If you subscribe to Battlefield 4 Premium, that is.
I keep remembering old school consoles. You know, the ones you were able to just plug in and start playing as soon as you took them out of the box? I know, I know, they didn't have nearly the same functionality that our new consoles have, but for some people who couldn't download their day one patch from the PlayStation Network, it's hard to even know what the functionality is.
