Wii U tablet controller's built-in mic will NOT be usable for in-game voice chat and Nintendo will not be making a headset for it, so Wii U owners will have to shell out $40 for a third-party headset if they want to make use of voice chat in online games.

Also, the Pro Controller will not have a headset port, so if you want to use it to play your online shooters, you'll need to sit the tablet next to you or on your lap or something with the headset plugged into it.

Well there is also WiiU Chat. I assume WiiU Chat will be universal with keyboard built into the gamepad touch screen interface for typing. No details yet other than confirmation that its marked on the boxes for WiiU.

They could also go wireless with their headset. I assume that is what they are aiming at with WiiU headsets. Unless they are playing more than 10 hours a day. Depending on the headset some last up to 10 hours with charge. Maybe more or less I don't know. Which honestly should be enough for anyone. Possibly Nintendo is doing this to keep the verbal abuse down on online networks.

Don't know if you guys have seen the new Bioshock trailer. Looks awesome.

Also they are giving you a free puzzled based flash game if you pre-order Bioshock Infinite. That unlocks in-game content. Check it out!

Ok guys. I found a few big things in past 24 hours. :P

1. Sony Buys GaiKai. So the rumors were true afterall. PS3/PS4/Vita/PC potential cross platform service. Could you imagine playing Platnetside 2 on PC then on PSVita on the go, PS3 at a friends house, or PS4 in your living room. All connected to the same game servers. Now its actually possible. When the bandwidth wagon catches up to it.

2. Rome: Total War II Officially announced for 2013!! Sounds and looks awesome.

3. Vivendi to step down from controlling Activision/Blizzard. Selling its 61% of shares in the company. If not in bulk will be shredded among the masses. So its a very random chance of who could buy them.

#374281 E3 2012 IS OVER, BACK TO THE OTHER THREAD

Posted by DeadFire87 on 04 June 2012 - 08:45 AM

So far this E3 I am getting a glimpse of next gen social interaction. Well apparently every console will have an app for you to log into to connect with each brand on any mobile device. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo have all confirmed this today! Likely with different varying levels of interaction, but still its a push I see from all three.

If they're releasing this game on PS3 with a hardware bundle, my guess is they won't announce the PS4. Why advertise a new package when you've got a new console coming out?

Man, these playtesters suck at this game.

Yup. My bet is 100% on them waiting on Microsoft to duke it out at the same E3 show with new consoles.

Has anyone else noticed that other than info on WoW and TOR updates, there's been pretty much nothing that's PC exclusive this year? You can feel it in the air- PC gaming has drawn its last breath.

SOE has 3-4 new MMOs.

Epic has full Unreal Engine 4 presentation on the 7th.

Watch Dogs, Star Wars 1313, and other multiplatform titles are clearly being shown off on PC format.

Am I the only one who wasn't actually there and won't be? Seriously, this is like reading a Twitter feed.

Watchdogs better be for 360 too; no way my laptop can handle such glory.

Apparently Watch Dogs will be for PC, PS3, X360 or well PS3/X360 might just be placeholder for next gen counter parts. I am hoping that Nintendo reveals that Watch Dogs is coming to WiiU as well at their conference. That demo is definitely running on PC hardware. If there is a PS3/X360 version I don't expect the same level of detail in the game. I am hoping Nintendo has many cards coming to the table tomorrow. I personally expect Medal of Honor, NFS, CoD, Watch Dogs, and many other high profile game properties to be announced for it.

Ubisoft is running E3 this year it seems. Its amazing. Sadly I am missing PS4. I had high hopes for it, but suspected early on that Microsoft and Sony wouldn't reveal unless they were side by side.

I don't know if you guys caught any of the EA conference today, but I have an addiction to bashing police in Need for Speed. There is also Dead Space 3, TOR Free to Play up to Level 15, Medal of Honor Modern Warfighter MP, Crysis 3, BF 3 Premium shown. Oh yeah as well as Simcity.

Check out the new open world Need for Speed Most Wanted by Criterion teaser. Can they make a game like BO: Paradise for Need for Speed work? :P

Some Actual gameplay as well. Now this looks like a Next gen NFS title. Totally awesome. I personally love it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=BaGE_ExVdw0

I love some FPS. This time made entirely by Danger Close. So no DICE doing the MP. So it should be a nice change up.

If you guys have not seen Star Wars 1313. Its a shame. Its like a super HD Uncharted version of Star Wars. Bounty Hunter + Uncharted formula = badass game. The graphics literally look like its from a Star Wars film.

Sony buys Gaikai or inks a major cloud gaming deal?

Basically if this becomes true. Sony phones, PS Vita, PS3, PS4. Will all be capable of playing PS4 or grander quality game titles anywhere in the world. I wonder if this is Sony's solution to not having full power of Unreal Engine 4 on PS4 maybe? I have heard rumor that Epic doesn't believe next gen consoles will push the full power of Unreal Engine 4.

This is amazing. Battlefield 3 PC edition quality and player count on PS Vita is now possible if true. Well Crysis 5 Extreme edition on CryEngine 4 would also be possible on PS Vita if true or even PS3.

http://www.mcvuk.com...ntrunner/097009

Gaikai hasn't confirmed anything yet, but they have send out invites to many parties to come to E3 to get a show. So some type of deal with Gaikai has been reached. I don't know if it involves Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo, but there have been lots of rumors aimed at Sony in the past couple of days. Here are some of Gaikai's words.

Now this morning Gaikai has sent out invitations to journalists for what it is heralding as a game-changing announcement.
“Gaikai has some major announcements in store for E3 that have the potential to change the future of video games, game consoles and how we play,” it reads.


What do you guys think?

All I get out of Nintendo conference so far is orchestra music!


#300940 NES Gen 6 reveal! or Wii 2 as some speculate

Posted by DeadFire87 on 14 April 2011 - 09:17 AM

What's most exciting about the Wii successor however is its all-new controller, which industry sources have indicated is not simply an upgraded Wii Remote, and will even feature a built-in HD screen.


Apparently will have some sort of new controller with a screen built into it. What? Sounds odd. Hey that is Nintendo though.

Intriguing, to be sure, but I'm skeptical of nintendo at this point. I seriously doubt that the system will be more powerful than the ps3 and 360, because nintendo has never seemed to be concerned about their console's power. Heck, the wii was their most successful system, and it basically skipped a generation. Why would they mess with success? Well, the logical response would be that the wii would not be replaced. The wii would continue being produced as the casual toy it was meant to be, while this system would support the hardcore gamer. So Nintendo, a company already fairly poor in regards to maintaining decent release schedules, would have to divide their resources between the wii, the hd console, and the recently released 3ds? I don't think that will happen, and if it does, it won't end well.

Of course, this is all just speculation. I honestly don't see this console being announced so soon, but who knows? Anything is possible. Honestly, I was so disappointed with my wii that I find it hard to trust nintendo anymore. It had few games I truly enjoyed, and the lack of Pikmin 3 still hurts.

I agree. I say Nintendo and Microsoft are going to follow Sony this time around. Keep the old system for another 5 years. As well as the new system. I don't think it will end badly. I think added HD power will influence some developers to make some solid first party titles. So it won't just be mostly Nintendo doing it.


#271628 Resident Evil + Left 4 Dead?

Posted by DeadFire87 on 05 November 2010 - 09:51 PM

Slant Six has a new game and publisher with a major franchise. I wonder what it could be?

SOCOM developer Slant Six Games is allegedly full steam ahead on a new Resident Evil game subtitled Racoon City, and appears to be team-based.

At least that's what a leaked document suggests. Slant Six reveal they've got a "world class franchise" they're working on, while Capcom says 'no comment'.


"Capcom does not respond to rumors and/or speculation," said buzzkill Capcom.

"Everyone here at Slant is very excited as we begin development on an amazing new project. The title is unannounced so far but we are very pleased to be working with our new publishing partner on a world class franchise! blabbed party-going Slant Six.


Several Slant Six current and former employees list an unannounced "multiplayer action game" for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on their LinkedIn profiles.

In March of this year, Slant Six solicited work for a "Japanese translator/interpreter."


All the clues point to yes. I hope if so its done right. Apparently for X360/PS3 as well. PC might get a port of it at some point. As Capcom likes to put them last, but they have put more effort into PC ports and games as of late than in the past. I am still happy to hear of this game. No other franchise has so many different things that could work so well together in a L4D type of setup. Think about the RE universe for a minute. Rapid dogs, birds, leaches, snakes, spiders, sharks, zombie hordes, leachmonster, Nemesis, Frog things, lickers, and I am certain some other things I have left out since RE 4 and 5. Like Giant Troll, Lake Monster, and others that I don't know of from RE 5. I hope its true. I believe its something along those lines anyway. Could be a strong new IP if this game comes out right. :wub:

Even if its all just a Rumor. There are a few facts. Japanese translator/interpreter is true. Multiplayer Action game for PS3/X360 is true. Slant Six + New publisher is true. Slant Six + Globally known named franchise is true.

Multiplatform (PC, PS3, X360) + Mac added if likely for the Mac platform.
Multiplatform (PS3, X360)
Smackdown Vs. Raw 2011 (PS3, X360, Wii, PS2, PSP, DS) :unsure:

PC Games
Playstation 3
Xbox 360
Wii
Enjoy the big old list. I striked out a few things I see that have their own topics, and threw up some of my feelings for some games. :)

Source Engine 2? Portal 2? :wub: Portal 2 Gameplay Graphics defiantly look like something little stronger than Source Engine 1. About 15 minutes. :shock: Source Engine 2 also could explain why PS3 is mentioned as a platform. New engine likely built to run on X360 and PS3. As well as PC/Mac of course. You can't deny the new graphics in these gameplay clips don't suggest Source Engine 2. The foliage alone should give it away.
