  1. Japan is getting yet another custom PlayStation 4. Sony has announced a special "Metal Slime" console for Japan, which is being released to mark the launch of Dragon Quest Heroes, an upcoming hack-and-slash action role-playing game in the style of Dynasty Warriors. The smiling slime blob featured on the PS4 itself is a removable USB cover, not a permanent fixture, Joystiqreports. Sony has not said when the Metal Slime PS4 will be available in Japan (Dragon Quest Heroes itself is launching sometime in 2015) or what it will cost. It's also unclear if the special system will ever makes its way to the United States or Europe. Sony announced the new PS4 model during a special press conference yesterday. This event also provided confirmation that Persona 5 is coming to PS4, a launch date for Bloodborne in Japan, and news that the PS4 and PlayStation Vita are finally getting theme support. Capcom's Resident Evil: Revelations 2 was alsoofficially confirmed during the show. The Metal Slime PS4 is not the first custom console revealed for Japan. Following the massive success of Disney's Frozen, Sony announced a limited-edition system based on the movie with laser-engravings of the movie's heroes, Elsa and Anna. The only PS4 available in the United States and Europe right now is the standard black model. However, this will change next week when Sony launches a $450 white console with Bungie's new shooter, Destiny. http://www.gamespot.com/articles/metal-slime-ps4-coming-to-japan/1100-6422054/
  2. Are you having trouble deciding whether to get Destiny on a PlayStation or Xbox system? Sony is trying its best to ensure you choose the former, today releasing a video walkthrough for the multiplayer map that is (temporarily) exclusive to the PS3 and PS4 versions. Described as a "mid-sized" map that works well for both smaller 3v3 matches and full 6v6 matches, the Exodus Blue map is set around the wreckage of the titular Exodus Blue ship. It's playable in the Crucible--the fancy term for competitive multiplayer in Destiny--and supports five modes: Skirmish, Control, Salvage, Clash, and Rumble. The video provides our best look yet at the full map, which is arguably the most substantial of thePlayStation-exclusive content, provided you're interested in competitive multiplayer. Along with the map, buyers of the PS3 or PS4 versions will also get additional armor and weapons; you can see an overview of all of this in another recent video that Sony released. This content will be exclusive to PS3 and PS4 until at least fall 2015, when it may also be released on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Destiny launches on September 9 on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. This exclusive content aside, the games are otherwise largely the same, and Bungie says it loves all of its fans--regardless of platform--equally. http://www.gamespot.com/articles/playstation-exclusive-destiny-map-video-helps-you-/1100-6422078/
  3. Slightly Mad Studios' next-generation racer, Project Cars, will launch on Friday, November 21 in the UK. The release date was announced via the British retail chain GAME on its Twitter feed, though international dates were not specified. By convention, it would suggest that Project Cars' release date across North America would fall on Tuesday, November 18, but publisher Namco Bandai has not confirmed this and was unavailable for comment at the time of going to press. Project Cars features highly detailed vehicles with a focus on racing simulation, much like the Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo series. It will ship first on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with the PC and Wii U versions delayed until an unspecified date in 2015. The PC version will also carry Oculus Rift support, making it one of the first racing games to support virtual reality. http://www.gamespot.com/articles/project-cars-uk-release-date-set-for-november-21/1100-6422076/
  4. The acclaimed JRPG Shin Megami Tensei 4 has been delayed in Europe by one month, a representative for the game's developer Atlus has announced. Though the 3DS title first shipped in Japan back in May 2013, localisation work meant the North America release was delayed to July. Now some fourteen months later, Atlus says the medieval themed RPG will not arrive in Europe until "late October". John Hardin, a representative for Atlus in the US, wrote on Twitter that the extended delay was due to unforeseen complications. "We encountered a few last-minute issues specific to the EU version, and we have to fix them," he explained. "Given the current timelines for production, it looks like SMTIV won’t be out in EU until late October." Hardin says the team at Atlus feels "awful" for delaying the game further, but hoped that fans could remain patient. "No one likes delays. Our fans in Europe have been waiting for SMTIV for a very long time, and it pains us to have to move the release date back even further," he wrote. "I have talked to a few of you on Twitter, I've seen the angry posts on Reddit, NeoGAF, Facebook, etc, and wanted to be as direct as I could. We truly feel awful having to say 'wait a little longer' for a game you've been so zealously patient for, but there is no other recourse. We're doing everything we can to get the game out in Europe as fast as we can, so please bear with us." http://www.gamespot.com/articles/further-delay-for-shin-megami-tensei-4-in-europe/1100-6422071/
  5. Nintendo will maintain its policy of region-locking hardware with the New Nintendo 3DS handheld, the company has confirmed to GameSpot. It means that games released across Japan, Europe, and North America will only be playable in those territories, effectively eliminating the opportunity to import games without importing foreign hardware, too. In contrast to Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo has a long history of region-locking its hardware, implementing the restriction to both the Wii U and 3DS systems. Despite hope that this policy would change, on Wednesday a representative for Nintendo told GameSpot that the New Nintendo 3DS, and New 3DS XL, will both be region-locked. In July last year, a petition imploring Nintendo to change this policy was endorsed by tens of thousands of consumers. At the time of going to press, the petition has close to 32,000 signatories. The New 3DS and 3DS XL will launch across North America and Europe next yearThe petition's author argues: "This practice is restrictive to customers, including those who enjoy playing foreign games not available domestically, speak foreign languages, serve in the military, or otherwise travel or live abroad." Incidentally, on Wednesday the game developer Atlus announced that the European release for Shin Megami Tensei 4 has been delayed to "late October." The game shipped in Japan in May 2013, and was available across North America two months later. Last year, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata defended the region-locking policies. "From some people's perspective, it might seem like a kind of restriction. However, we hope people can appreciate the fact that we're selling our products worldwide," Iwata said at the time. "There are many different regions around the world, and each region has its own cultural acceptance and legal restrictions, as well as different age ratings. There are always things that we're required to do in each different region, which may go counter to the idea that players around the world want the freedom to play whatever they want." Two new shoulder buttons add to the several new features included in the New 3DSThe New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL will launch later this year in Japan, with a European release penciled in for 2015. Nintendo of America has not yet confirmed a North American release. It comes with various hardware improvements, such as a small C-Stick next to its face buttons, which effectively works as a second analog stick. Also featured are two new shoulder buttons--ZL and ZR--along with what Nintendo is calling "Super-Stable 3D," which will broaden the viewing field of the stereoscopic 3D. Upgraded hardware will allow the system to run faster, while the in-built NFC technology will enable the use of Nintendo's "amiibo" figurines. http://www.gamespot.com/articles/new-nintendo-3ds-will-be-region-locked/1100-6422079/
  6. Xbox Live Gold members will be able to play Forza Motorsport 5 for free this weekend, starting from 12:01am PDT this Thursday September 4 until midnight on Sunday September 7. According to the Xbox blog, this will be the entire game - not a demo. Players can earn Forza 5 achievements and raise their gamerscore during the free week, which will remain on the player's profile even after the free week concludes. Throughout the weekend, players can compete in a special multiclass endurance race event, Grand Tour of Prague, to earn a new title and badge. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/09/03/forza-5-is-free-on-xbox-one-this-weekend
  7. nce staggered between the regions of North America and Europe, The Evil Within will now be releasing in both simultaneously. This is according to Bethesda's blog, which announced that The Evil Within's official release date in Europe, South Africa, India, and the Middle East has been moved to October 14 instead of the originally-planned October 18. The horror game will be available at retail for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC, and will also release digitally on Xbox Live, Steam, and PlayStation Network. Bethesda also confirms that the release dates for Australia on October 16, New Zealand on October 17, and Japan on October 23 remain the same. This is not the first time that The Evil Within's release date has been moved around. Initially scheduled to release in August, the game was delayed until late October and later moved up a week in various regions The brainchild of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within is a psychological survival horror game that looks to recapture the same terror seen in Mikami's classics. IGN's initial impressions of the game weren't all too positive, although later opinions have been fairly mixed. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/09/03/the-evil-within-european-release-date-moved-to-october-14
  8. Sony has announced its new Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact smartphones, both of which will be the first phones to support PS4 Remote Play. Both models can connect to your PlayStation 4 console in order to enable you to play games without using your TV screen, though it's very much designed to be used elsewhere in the home rather than out and about. If you want to play a game, the new GCM10 Game Control Mount must be used to connect your DualShock 4 to the device and you'll then be able to play through home Wi-Fi. Alternatively, no controller is needed if you just want to remotely watch friends' gameplay, talk to them, or purchase and download new titles. As for the phones themselves, the Xperia Z3 measures in at 5.2" and comes in white, black, copper and silver green, while its more compact brother is 4.6" and comes in orange, green, white or black. Both are highly waterproof and dust-tight and come with a fully integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2.5 GHz quad-core CPU with 4G LTE modem. Sony claims the battery life is such that you should be able to go two days without a charge, or push it further if you use the new "Stamina" mode to turn off background functions when they're not in use. Both models include a 20.7MP camera with 1/2.3” Exmor RS for mobile image sensor to boost photo and video detail, along with a 25mm G Lens and ISO 12800 sensitivity to support photos in a range of situations, including those with low light. Video clips can be recorded in 4K resolution, too. Finally, the mobile also bring together Sony’s Triluminos Display for mobile with Live Colour LED, X-Reality for mobile in a bid to foster intuitive contrast adjustment. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/09/03/ps4-remote-play-hitting-new-sony-xperia-z3-smartphones
  9. Lenovo announced two new gaming machines: the Y70 Touch and the Erazer X315. Designed with HD gaming in mind, the Y70 includes a Core i7 processor and Nvidia GTX graphics. With a 17 inch display, the Y70 is Lenovo's largest touchscreen laptop. As you might expect, the 17 inch screen makes it heavier than most laptops, coming in somewhere under 7.35 pounds. But according to Lenovo, the Y70 is lighter and thinner than most laptops in its class because of the included external optical disc drive. Users can expect up to five hours of battery life. The Erazer X315 claims to be Lenovo's gaming desktop for PC gamers on a budget. It features AMD R9 graphics and quad-core processing. It has up to 12GB of memory, four USB 3.0 ports, and an always-on USB charging port. The Y70 will be available in October starting at $1,299 (USD), and the Erazer X315 will be available in November starting at $599 (USD). http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/09/03/lenovo-announces-new-gaming-laptop-and-desktop
