Watch Dogs is Almost Here: Final Bits of Speculation

May 26, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Watch Dogs screenshot 4

As of tomorrow, we’ll have no further need to speculate about Watch Dogs. It will have launched for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, with only the Wii U version left unseen. In these final hours, let’s discuss a few final topics.

Aside from this unusual little promotion Ubisoft Tweeted last night, most of our new information on Watch Dogs comes from leaks and early copies. For example, one Reddit user held a Q&A session and claims the story alone lasts about 10-11 hours and is “satisfying and definitely worth playing,” but that you should “try all of the little side things” to get the most enjoyment out of it.

If you’re mostly interested in seeing the world you’ll be exploring, PlayStation Access has uploaded an overview of the entire map.

Remember, any details given out about Watch Dogs are technically still rumors, but we’ve only got a short time before we’ll get to see everything for ourselves.

If you’d to see things a little early, though, the same Youtube user who shared 25 minutes of Murdered: Soul Suspect has started a Watch Dogs playthrough. Take a look and tell us what you think!

The Last of Us: Remastered Could Release on June 20

April 15, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

The Last of Us Remastered

Of all the gaming news over the past few weeks, the announcement of The Last of Us: Remastered might have caused the biggest stir. Excitement, controversy, and more surrounds this title, and everyone has an opinion on whether this is a must-buy or one to pass.

Well, for those of you thinking about playing Naughty Dog’s remastered survival title on the PS4, you’d probably like to know when it’s coming out. There hasn’t been an official release date announcement, but earlier today, GameFly listed it for June 20. (The listing has since been altered to give a generic placeholder date.)

Last of Us gamefly

Target still lists it for June 20.

With just two listings and no official word, this is still very much a rumor. If it’s true, though, we’ll probably find out soon. We’ll keep you updated.

Watch Dogs Will Launch on May 27

March 9, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


Ever since it was first revealed, fans have been waiting for a definitive release date of Watch Dogs, Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world game. Now, at last, we have one.

PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC users will be able to pick up Watch Dogs on May 27. Wii U users will have to wait a little longer, as that version of the game has been delayed. It’s been a long time since Watch Dogs was announced, but Ubisoft’s Geoffroy Sardin believes the finished product is well worth the time it took to develop.

In honor of the release date, Ubisoft released a new story trailer.

The trailer triggered a new controversy amongst fans, as the trailer footage doesn’t show graphics on par with those shown in E3 trailers. Ubisoft’s PR and Event Manager, Tessa Vilyn, has claimed the graphics haven’t been downgraded.

Head Creative Director Jonathan Morin has since come out and said Watch Dogs on the PS4 will match the PS4 graphics seen at E3 2013.

Don’t forget, Watch Dogs has 60 minutes of exclusive content for PS3 and PS4 players. Additionally, players in Europe will be able to buy a PS3 Watch Dogs bundle and a PS4 Watch Dogs bundle. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear more details, along with any news about the bundles coming to other regions.

Are you looking forward to Watch Dogs?

Driveclub Release Date Leaked?

March 4, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


Fans have been wondering for quite a while now just when the delayed PS4 racing game Driveclub will be released. Now, a user at PSNation claims to have the answer.

This user posted a screenshot of Twitter, in which the Driveclub Twitter page has posted “Mark your calendars 9.4.14 #DRIVECLUB,” and claims that the Tweet has since vanished.

It could be a legitimate leak, posted by mistake, but on the other hand, it could be a faked image. If we assume for a minute it is true, however, than the long wait for Driveclub will end on September 4… or April 9, depending on which formatting convention was used for the date. On the other hand, the Tweet doesn’t actually say the game will be released on that day. It could be a new trailer, an announcement, or any number of things.

The image is a little strange. We find it hard to believe that something so significant could be posted and only be favorited and retweeted once on Twitter. On the other hand, someone has to be the first to see it, and it could be the user who took the screenshot. Then again, both the original tweet and its retweet are nowhere to be found.

So take this news with a pinch of salt. We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything official.

Japanese Market Interested in PS4, Not so Much in Xbox One

February 20, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


We’re just two days away from the launch of the PlayStation 4 in Japan. With the high sales numbers Sony has seen for the console already, we’ve been wondering just how much of an impact the Japanese release will have. Well, if the data from Google Trends is any indication, it should give sales quite a boost.

Google Trends shows that a lot of people in Japan are searching for information on the PS4. Now, these searches won’t necessarily correspond to sales, as the poorly-selling Wii U has also seen a lot of searches, but at least the interest is there. That’s more than we can say for the Xbox One, which far fewer people in Japan have searched for.

The PS4 is very popular, but there aren’t a lot of strong Japanese titles available for it yet. How do you think it will fare when it releases in Japan on February 22? Let us know in the comments below.

Watch Dogs Releasing Between April and June, Wii U Delayed

February 10, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


After a lot of rumors, we finally have official word on when Watch Dogs will be released, even if it’s not a concrete date yet. Ubisoft announced that it will come out for the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC sometime between April and June.

The Wii U version, however, will be released later. According to Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, the delay will ensure the development team’s resources are used as effectively as possible.

We’re glad to have a release window for Watch Dogs on most systems, but the delay of the Wii U version has sparked a lot of rumors that it will actually be cancelled. We hope that isn’t the case—the Wii U has enough troubles without losing one of its big-name games.

Driveclub’s Delay: Sony Believes it is the Right Decision

February 1, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


Driveclub was originally announced as one of the PS4’s launch titles, so many fans (including everyone here at!) were dismayed when it was delayed until 2014. We still don’t have an official release date for the game, but Sony’s Fergal Gara believes the delay was definitely the right decision.

“It was quite ambitious and didn’t get there in the timeline hoped,” said Gara. “That’s not great, but it’s far better to bring it out at the standard.”

Driveclub, with its extensive social features, promises to be an excellent title for racing game fans. Although a definite release date would be nice, we understand Gara’s decision. Many games have been damaged when they were rushed and released before they were ready. We would rather have to wait a little longer for Driveclub than receive a substandard, half-finished product.

Rumor: Watch Dogs coming March 2014

January 15, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


The latest issue of the Official Xbox Magazine has Watch Dogs slated for a march release, something that was not known/confirmed at least until now.

Click here to be taken to a screengrab of the relevant page from the magazine, which clearly says “releases March”. What it also means is that Watch Dogs is going to be competing against a slew of other massive next-generation titles currently scheduled to arrive in March. This includes much-anticipated games such as as TitanFall, Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes, Dark Souls 2, Blazblue, South Park the stick of Truth, Yaiba, Final Fantasy X, Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls, and Infamous Second Son.

We’ve also been hearing further internet chatter of an exact dates within March for the launch of Watch Dogs… apparently it will be Mach 18 for the United States and March 21 for Europe. We’re hopeful that Ubisoft will be in a position to confirm these rumored dates ASAP, and will be sure to let you know right here. And when it does release, we’ll have all the cheats for it right here too – on Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U!

Playstation 4 now launched in 48 countries

December 15, 2013 by Staff - Leave a comment


Sony’s Playstation 4 is now available in a total of 48 different countries with the release of the console in the following 15 markets: Czech Republic, Greece, Slovakia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, South Africa, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

We know for sure that the console sold out in South Africa within 24 hours of its launch there, and that supplies of the console in the remaining countries are extremely scarce (just as they remain everywhere else the PS4 has launched).

Sony has said that the PS4 will be available in even more countries before the end of this year and that more will follow in 2014, so if your country doesn’t have the console yet, don’t despair. And if you can’t stand the wait, given it is region free (along with the games) then you can always try and grab one from Amazon (when they come back in stock). Just remember that your Blu-Ray region might different to that of the US, which is region 1.
