We finally have a price for the long-awaited PlayStation VR. At GDC yesterday, Sony announced that the unit will be $399.
Hey guys. This just in. It’s the future.
In case you didn’t know, GDC is going on this week (that’s Game Developers Conference 2014, if you’re not familiar), and Sony has chosen that venue to introduce us to Project Morpheus.
When it comes to making video game’s people would often turn towards Unreal, or CryTek for their highly coveted game engines. However that will be changing starting today after the announcement of Unity 5 at this years GDC.
Today, the ancients of the majestic pacific northwest (Bungie) wrapped up their GDC panel today giving guests attending a glimpse into the art, character development and design of Destiny, from early concept art to images, animation and character models.
Their impressive Character Development video showcases models from the Vex, the evil time traveling robots, the terrifying four armed Fallen warriors, to the large Cabal and even the undead looking monsters known as the Hive. The video also gives us a glimpse of the Guardians that, we, the players will get to control. The classes we know of right now are the Hunter, the Warlock and Titan.
The Titan as we know is the [...]

When new technology is announced there’s a bit of resistance to it but that’s hardly the case for Nintendo it seems. We spoke about Autodesk’s Gameware technology earlier today on the site here, and apparently from whatever Nintendo saw during Autodesk’s conference, that was enough to convince them to enter into a landmark license agreement with Autodesk. Allowing Nintendo to use the software for all future Wii U games.
Under the terms of agreement, Autodesk, Inc. has granted Nintendo the right to provide licensed Wii U game developers with three Gameware products: Autodesk Scaleform middleware for user interface development, Autodesk Kynapse middleware for artificial [...]
The digital distribution of games is constantly evolving. In just over a half a decade it has gone from being a flimsy second-option to becoming a prime delivery medium. However, a digital retailer is – and has always been – reliant on the speed of a consumer’s Internet connection. A slow download is a slow download, no matter how intuitive or economical a service is. And that’s where Approxy steps in.
At GDC 2012, the company unveiled a potentially revolutionary piece of techonology called Cloudpaging which aims to drastically improve the download experience for HD gaming content. The tech works by dividing up a downloadable game into small fragments [...]
Square Enix will be present at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco this year featuring hands-on demos of three of their most anticipated titles: Sleeping Dogs, Heroes of Ruin and Quantum Conundrum.
Sleeping Dogs, which was originally being developed as True Crime: Hong Kong, is an open world crime drama. According to the official site the game features “…an intuitive and imaginative combat system, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to take on whole gangs with bone-crunching kicks and combos, vicious counters and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns using improvised weapons from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator [...]
I am sure if you have played the Crysis 2 Demo on PlayStation Network or have been reading articles on N4G and other sites, you have seen or heard complaints about the troubled visuals. Well, last night I emailed Crytek about the visual complaint from gamers. The question I had originally asked was:
“Was the PS3 demo an earlier build of the game, and if not, does the team plan on sending out an update to fix some issues with the game?”
I received an email this morning from Steve Hahnel on behalf of EA and Crytek. The statement I received was this:
“This demo is for evaluation purposes only and is not necessarily representative of the final [...]
3DVIA is a brand of Dassault Systemes that was founded to extend their high-end 3D graphics capabilities to new markets including consumers. The company’s stated goal is to democratize the use of 3D technology and establish it as the new media for consumer and professional users. At GDC 2011, 3DVIA showed off their games and technology. Some of you may have already played their game on Facebook. They are the people who made Billions, Save Them All. If you have not played that game and you have a Facebook account, I highly recommend playing it. This is definitely the most impressive Facebook game I have seen. It does require you to download and install 3DVIAplayer, so [...]
In March of 2007, Earth Defense Force 2017, was released on Xbox 360. The game wasn’t very stunning visually, the levels were uninspired, and the frame-rate was definitely a problem. Even with that said, the game was still a fun experience. At GDC 2011, D3 Publisher showed off Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, and this time it’s coming to both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Earth Defense Force is a cooperative arcade shooter with thousands of giant bugs and robots. With over 300 weapons, 4 upgradeable armor types and an entirely destructible city of New Detroit, you and your friends will have a lot of fun. Now with 3 players campaign mode and [...]

Well, the video below can describe NeuroSky better then I ever could have. At GDC 2011, I had the opportunity to use the NeuroSky headset, and I was very impressed. The headset is comfortable and easy to use. They said there is no need to install a program to run it, that the game will already allow for it to work. Just plug and play. I used it for several games created by NeuroSky. It uses your attention and meditation levels to control games. For instance, there is a game where you focus on a barrel to blow it up. The higher the attention level the faster it will blow. They also seek to increase ones education with it. There are math games that will show your wave levels and speed [...]
This is just some of the goodness that came out of GDC 2011. Insomniac is back at it again, this game looks great. As you can see and hear, they have made many improvements on the franchise. Some of which are:
– Play as Joe Capelli, the last sentinel, confirmed. – Game begins in Haven, Oklahoma, Joe Capelli’s home town. You must defend against the chimera in the town to allow the citizens and your family to escape. – New enemies, Long-Legs, Brawler, Terra Forma (new Chimeran machine). – Starts off four years after Resistance 2. – No health regeneration, the game is all about survival, so you will have to look for health. – Return to [...]
Remember in 2007 when Michael Pachter said that Mass Effect AND Gears of war would go to the PS3. GUESS WHAT! MASS EFFECT WENT TO THE PS3… but you already knew that. What you may not know is that Epic President Mike Capps said while speaking at GDC that, “We would love to ship Gears of War on the PlayStation 3, but Microsoft has really compelling reasons to partner with Microsoft.”
Xbox 360 fans can breathe a little easier knowing that Gears of War will remain an Xbox 360 exclusive for the time being, but Capps was clear that Epic does own the Gears of War IP and they would like to bring the trilogy to the PlayStation 3 to get Resistance and Killzone players into [...]
