PS4 May be Cheaper than the PS3, Interview with Michael Denny Suggests

Image
Edge Online has interviewed Sony Worldwide Studios’ vice president Michael Denny and he has hinted that the PS4 may be cheaper than the PS3.

When asked questions related to the price of the PS4 he had this to say:

" we listen and learn and take the judgement from every console launch we ever have ... We want a system that can reach as broad a gaming audience as possible but whilst being a system that’s deep, connected, rich and immersive "

When asked directly if the PS4 will launch at a more competitive price point he had this to say:

" There’s plenty of time, we’ve got lots of information yet to give out on PlayStation 4. The initial announcement phase that we’re in now is just to explain the vision to everybody. Part of that vision is we have created a console absolutely focused on gamers – and we want that to be gamers in the broadest sense as well. I think to some extent I can ask you to draw your own conclusions. "


Gamers in the broadest sense suggests that th…

Battlefield 4 Developer Calls Motion Controls a 'Gimmick'

Image
Speaking with Edge Online executive producer at DICE, Patrick Bach has said that despite the fact people were throwing money at them to include motion controls in BF4 but there are no plans to include them in the game.

"We are not interested in things that don't make the game better," Bach said. "There are a lot of gimmicks — people throwing money at us — ‘can you implement support for this quirky control thing'. No, it doesn't make the game better."

He says the studio is open to innovations but only if it adds value to the player.

"We are extremely open to innovation, but if it’s a gimmick, there’s no point unless it adds value to the player. Touch screens used to be a gimmick, because no-one could get it to work until iPhone came out and used it right. It adds to the experience, and now everyone is doing it. To us it’s the same with motion control and perceptual gaming in general; if it adds, great. If it’s a gimmick, ignore it.”

This probably i…

Ubisoft Talks about Next Gen

Image
In an interview with IGN Ubisoft has talked about the next generation of gaming.

They highlighted that the next generation of gaming will be about connected experiences, something Sony has focused on with the PS4's features such as assisting a friend in game.

“As far as being creative and showing what our studios can do, I think Ubisoft is well-positioned. We can’t wait,” Mallat told IGN. “For us, next-gen will definitely be connected experiences, but also social experiences, more immersive, and more interactive. First, we should start seeing that in a while. This cycle has been a long one. We really wanted the new consoles to come along. We’re happy to see that, based on what we saw from Sony last month. We definitely share the same visions. In terms of opportunities, I would say that there is a great momentum on everything that revolves already around the consumer’s way of spending his entertainment time. This is good news for us. Of course, every transition, every new machine,…

Criterion Moving Away From Racing Games

In multiple tweets, Criterion chief Alex Ward has said that the studio will not be making the next Burnout or Need for Speed games.


Here is what I want folks to know. Some folks are eternally disappointed. Nothing I can do about that. So many tweets asking for new Burnout
— Alex Ward (@AlexanderJWard) April 15, 2013
Equally many tweets asking for a new NFS game from us. Also Road Rash. Whilst I love all of those games, I am personally not doing any.
— Alex Ward (@AlexanderJWard) April 15, 2013
After over a decade of making racing games it's time to make something new. It is early days thus I have nothing to "announce" or talk about
— Alex Ward (@AlexanderJWard) April 15, 2013
I am proud of all of the Burnout games. When it feels right we will make another one. We are creative people.
— Alex Ward (@AlexanderJWard) April 15, 2013

Burnout is still one of the classic games on the PS3 and holds up to modern racers, 5 years after it's release.
