GTA 5 Beta Scam; No Pre-release Beta for the Game

Oct 20, 2014 - 2:45 PM - by dgstorm

While it's sometimes fun to be a blackhat in games, it's easy to forget there are still bad guys in the real world too. That makes it easier to fall for the latest phishing scam. Supposedly there is a new scam floating around that starts off with an invite to be a beta tester for the pre-release of GTA5 on the Xbox One and PS4. The game has already been out for quite some time on the Xbox 360 and PS3, and the new version for the next-gen consoles will not have a pre-release. If you receive an email inviting you to one, don't respond, because it is likely a phishing scam designed to get you to enter in personal information.

Rockstar had this to say,

"Please note: There is no pre-release 'Beta' test for Grand Theft Auto V. If you see ads or solicitations to join a beta program, beware as this is likely some type of online phishing scam."

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is Gold; Now Available for Pre-order & Pre-download

Oct 17, 2014 - 12:30 PM - by dgstorm

Halo: The Master Chief Collection went gold just this morning. For folks who are unfamiliar with that term, it means the "gold master" (usually not literally gold) disk was created for the final shipping build of the game. This is the original disk which will be used to create all the copies which will go into retail boxes.

On top of that, the game is now available for pre-order and pre-download. Here's a quote with more of the details,

Thirteen years ago, Xbox made gaming history with the release of Halo: Combat Evolved. Then, ten years ago, Halo 2 changed the face of gaming forever. To date, more than 60 million copies of Halo games have been sold worldwide, driving over 6 billion hours of gameplay by fans connected to Xbox Live.

Now, on November 11, the seminal first-person shooter saga gets the deluxe Xbox One treatment with the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Celebrating three generations of the franchise and giving both new and longtime Halo fans the chance to experience all of the action on one consoles, this will kick off a new era in the Halo universe.

Starting today, you can pre-order and pre-download The Master Chief Collection on Xbox Live. Let’s take a closer look at what this $59.99 package gets you.

The Entire Master Chief Saga – Halo: The Master Chief Collection includes all of the critically acclaimed adventures of the Master Chief, from the original Halo: Combat Evolved: Anniversary, to Halo 2: Anniversary, and on to Halo 3 and Halo 4. You can even play a selection of the most treasured campaign levels across all four games using curated playlists – and once you’ve finished the fight, you can dive into the online fray on over 100 multiplayer maps, including six completely remastered favorites from Halo 2.

Halo 2: Anniversary – In commemoration of Halo 2’s 10th anniversary, it’s received the special edition treatment in the form of dazzling HD graphics, all-new audio, smooth 60 fps gameplay, and nearly a full hour of brand-new cinematics. In addition to being able to find new terminals and flip on new skulls for some added challenge, you can instantly switch between the remastered Halo 2: Anniversary visuals and sound and the classic Halo 2 graphics and audio.

Halo: Nightfall – The inaugural installment of the episodic series from Executive Producer Ridley Scott and Scott Free Production will debut day-and-date with The Master Chief Collection – and you’ll be one of the first to see it. Giving players a look into the backstory of Agent Locke, who plays a key role in the events of Halo 5: Guardians, the five episodes of “Halo: Nightfall” will help to usher in a new era in the Halo universe.

Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta – Jump into the long-awaited Halo 5 multiplayer maps before anyone else, during an exclusive three-week beta period that runs from December 29, 2014 through January 18, 2015. By taking part in the event,

Next Xbox One Update to Include New Snap and Friends Features

Oct 16, 2014 - 6:45 AM - by Maura

Microsoft says that it is “excited” about new features that are about to be rolled out for Xbox One, according to Xbox Wire.

The new features are the result of fan feedback, and are designed to make it easier for you to connect with your friends when using the console. In particular, the new Snap and Friends functions have been updated with this in mind.

As far as Snap updates are concerned, Microsoft has updated the Xbox One Snap Center with quick access functionality to such apps as Friends, Messages, Game DVR, clock and battery indicator. It will also now be easier to close and open new Snap apps when you are playing a game.

The Friends Snap App and Messages Snap App have also now been optimised for Snap. In Snap, users will now be able to access their friends list without leaving the game they’re playing, check their friends list, send them messages, invite, or join.

In Messages, you will be able to open, read, and respond to messages in Snap mode, and you’ll also be able to view messages in a threaded conversation view.

Elsewhere, the Achievements App has been updated so that you will be able to share achievements that you’ve unlocked with captions, as well as view friends that have unlocked achievements. The achievements Snap landing page has also been updated to show achievements on games that have been played recently when you are not currently playing a game.

In the new Friends section, you’ll be able to instantly view what your friends are up to, including the most popular games that they’re playing, and a Gamerscore leaderboard.

Also included in the major update are new SmartGlass features, including being able to see a list of your top games in your profile, and lots of TV and video improvements, including a new live MiniGuide.

Microsoft Announces New Assassin’s Creed Xbox One Bundles With Two Free Games

Oct 16, 2014 - 5:38 AM - by Maura

Following on from the news this week that Xbox One outsold PS4 in September in the US, thanks mainly to the free game giveaway with Xbox One bundles, Microsoft has announced, via Xbox Wire, two new Assassin’s Creed bundles.

The newly announced bundles both feature the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity game, as well as 2013’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. One bundle will include just the two games, and will retail for $399, and the other will include Kinect as well as the two AC games, plus Dance Central Spotlight, and will cost $499.

The bundles will be available worldwide on Sunday, November 2, and on Tuesday, November 4 in EMEA territories, and will include a digital download code from Assassin’s Creed Unity, ready to pre-download and then play on November 11, when the game is released. They will feature special edition Assassin’s Creed Unity packaging.

“This holiday we’re focused on offering fans the best games, with unprecedented choice and value,” said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president, Microsoft. “We’ve lined up an incredible set of bundles to support the launch of some of the most anticipated game launches of the year, including Assassin’s Creed Unity, Sunset Overdrive, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Combined with our award-winning games line-up this holiday, it’s an incredible time to play on Xbox One. Over the next two months, we look forward to celebrating with fans every week as we launch new games, new bundles, and a few surprises for Xbox One.”

Xbox One Outsold PS4 in September

Oct 14, 2014 - 9:02 AM - by Maura

GamesBeat has great news for Microsoft today, reporting on new figures from Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, who estimates that in September, Microsoft sold 325,000 new Xbox One consoles at US retailers, beating Sony’s 250,000 PS4 consoles sold.

These figures are particularly noteworthy when you take into consideration the fact that PS4 has been solidly outselling Xbox One every month except one since it was launched.

It’s also worth noting that Bungie released Destiny in September, which was very much marketed as a PS4 game, despite being on Xbox One as well, so you could be forgiven for thinking that would have helped PS4 beat Xbox One as usual this month, but that's apparently not the case.

And while these figures are still not official, and we won’t know the actual figures until Thursday, Pachter says that if they do hold up, they can be explained simply by the fact that Microsoft gave away a free game with every Xbox One during this time period.

“From Sept. 7 through 13, Microsoft offered a free game with the purchase of a new Xbox One at participating retailers,” Pachter told GamesBeat. “I kind of think that free Destiny [on Xbox One] was better than paying for Destiny on PS4.”

Bungie Says That 3.2 Million of us Are Playing Destiny Every Day

Oct 13, 2014 - 2:41 PM - by Maura

One month since Destiny was released, Bungie has revealed some interesting stats about the game, such as the fact that around 3.2 million people are playing Destiny every day, with an average playing time of 3 hours.

MCVUK reports that the stats also show that the average Destiny player has played the game 20.9 times in total, or 1.8 times a day.

Bungie also stated that in the past three weeks, more people have played Destiny online than have played Halo 3 and Halo: Reach combined in the same timeframe.
“We thank you for playing. And, we thank you for the passion and enthusiasm that has made the Destiny community so strong already. It's been amazing to watch your Guardians become legends,” said Bungie. “Your reactions and your opinions have helped us to make Destiny better over this past month.
“Pioneering something new is never easy. When we see the raw numbers, it’s easy for us to say that the destination was worth the journey. Stay tuned for the next evolution of our shared adventure.”
