Not really surprised Switch isn't WiiU game compatible. Its strange though that so many games are claimed to be getting ported so easily to the system. I guess its just the core CPU design thing that is tripping up the idea. And well the no disc drive likely a reason Nintendo skipped over coding it even if it was possible to emulate. 

 

1 Major third party plans to bring all its titles from PS4 over to Switch. Not sure if that's the current line up. Some type of Orange box kinda deal or just the future titles to come. :P 

 

Cryengine might even be supported on Switch as well in the future revisions of the engine. There brand manager states they would like to see it on as many platforms as possible, but no comment just yet. And well they supported WiiU and even Android with a version of it so one can only suspect it is a possibility. 

 

I expect a big unveiling in January/February/Early March for Switch details, games, and so on. Probably January as people will be rabidly awaiting for game news by then. Since there is no longer a NDA then its likely anything announced at VGX thing could include switch titles. 

 

Mark Cenry talks about how you could just do two 16 Floating operations instead of 32 or putting two 16 floating point operations into 1 32-bit operation with PS4 Pro games and get 8.4 Tflops with PS4Pro in a long talk about Pro. Technically this is possibly true, but couldn't Scorpio do the same and get 12 Tflops? Possibly. I am not that deep into GPU operations. Sony also stated it still believes in generations. So PS5 will exist apparently after claiming they would never know if one was coming earlier months ago.

Cyberpunk 2077 could have seemless multiplayer

 

CD Projekt Red’s next game supposedly has more people working on it than The Witcher 3 ever did, however little else is known about Cyberpunk 2077 beyond its tabletop roots. Geralt’s last outing set the bar high with regards to open-world exploration, and it seems the Polish studio is keen to keep this momentum going, having applied for grants via the Polish GameINN programme for various technologies, including ‘City Creation’, ‘Animation Excellence’, ‘Cinematic Feel’, and ‘Seamless Multiplayer.’

As reported and translated by GamePressure, City Creation is a “complex technology for creating a huge living city, playable in real time, which (the technology) is based on rules, AI, and automation, as well as supports innovative processes and tools for making top-notch open-world games."

Seamless Multiplayer, on the other hand, is a “complex technology for making unique multiplayer gameplay mechanics, including the ability to search out for opponents, manage game session, replicate objects, as well as support for different game modes along with a unique set of dedicated tools." Animation Excellence and Cinematic Feel are likely more self-explanatory. 

We contacted CD Projekt Red to confirm the veracity of the applications, to which the studio's Robert Malinowski replied: "We did apply, I can confirm that, yes. However, we wouldn't like to elaborate beyond what's already there."

Nascar Heat Evolution. Because. I just bought this. Why? Well I like stock car racing. And........40 player online with no cautions is going to be chaotic fun. I believe. Sadly they didn't put cautions into online. Likely due to building their code into a new engine.

 

Also Toxikk Launched. That old school shooter vibe. 

Some of the view of the free version. 

 

One more thing. 

 

Armored Core is getting a NEW game.

Watch Dogs 2 seems like a fun online experience. Not much of a co-op guy, but the other modes sound fun. 

 

Sims 4 is trying something different apparently the next expansion is City Life

 

Titanfall 2 is getting a beta/Technical test this weekend and next weekend. Just gotta download it off the PS Store/XBL Hey its free to try. Worth a shot. 

 

For Honor. Multiplayer. 

 

Titanfall 2

 

Mount & Blade 2 :Siege mode. Its pretty awesome to me.

Microsoft keeps halfing the effort in hopes for their own store to live. Steam is Dad to PC gamers. Microsoft store will never be invited back to the dinner table. It has left us out in the cold for too many years all alone. Steam adopted us. Steam cares. 

 

Lawbreakers: Vanguard Class. This is like Doom/UT + Overwatch. Looks awesome. I am addicted to what I call tension FPS games. 

 

Bioshock Collection Remastered. Releasing in Sept. Bioshock 1,2, 3. Worth a go if ya never played em.

Quake will be shown off at Quakecon. In case you guys didn't know. Sometime later this week. 

Ubisoft talks about winning over the Wii Audience on NX. Talking about how NX will win casuals over. Kinda scary to see those words. Surprise titles from Ubisoft. I am thinking NOOO in my head. As I speculate 1000 gimmicks Nintendo could have come up with that Ubisoft is supporting now. 

 

Ubisoft's new patch. Siege. Looks cool.

Digital Foundry has an in-depth article about the Nvidia Tegra chip that's powering the NX, too.

 

We'll have to get DeadFire in to tell us exactly what the Dragonball Z power level of this thing might be, but I'm thinking it's pretty safe to say that PS4/XB1 power is off the menu. I guess we just have to hope it's more powerful than the Wii U, though even that might be a bit much to ask for. It's the console/handheld hybrid that Iwata specifically said it wasn't going to be but we all kind of thought it would be anyway. At least we know it's going to play Zelda.

Tegra X1/Maxwell which is claimed to be in the dev kits could be at 1 Tflop depending on the mode used. If 16FP then 1 Tflop if 32FP then its 512 or so Gigaflops. 2nd one is probably most likely. It would still outrank WiiU if it used 32FP. Tegra X1 Chips aimed are aimed at 1 Tflop. Which if ya compare it to some rumors its possibly true. WiiU runs at 380 Gigaflops or so it is said to be its max potential. So this is at least twice as powerful and slightly below XB1's base model's 1.2 Tflops. To be a portable device its pretty impressive. If they had the time to put the newer gen Tegra chip in the system it would touch a little higher. NVIDIA is said to be revealing its Pascal based Tegra chip in August. Its rumored Nintendo is to reveal NX in September. Although some details of hints of the new Tegra chips from the Drive PX2 design that was shown off eariler for Self driving cars built by NVIDIA with the new Tegra chips suggest it could feature 6 cores and 4 Tflops per SoC. As PX2 has 2 New Tegra SoCs together with 8 Tflops and with 12 CPU cores. I doubt that the new wave of NVIDIA Tegra is in NX. Then again if you consider its possibly half that on 32FP instructions it could be possible seeing 2 Tflop Tegra. Although Its most likely the Tegra X1 design of a modified form with 512 Gigaflops up to 1 Tflops potential. Still its massive power for a portable. Nearly every game engine was tested for it when NVIDIA showed it off. 

 

All of the rumors could technically be true. Depends on if its true that NX is just a portable on the go + home device. Or if say Nintendo has a second piece of hardware and NX Portable is just the evolution of Portable devices for now with some kinda new Home console later. NX line-up could feature a revised Home console too. You know how Microsoft has Scorpio, and Sony has Neo. Nintendo could have another box under wraps too. Lets keep that in the rumor box until they say anything though. Don't wanna get anyone's hopes up too high. Seems like an On the go thing would just suit the Portable crowd to me. 

 

I am betting NX Portable has at least a couple of Cell Phone features. It wouldn't surprise me to see a mobile USB mini like charging port that works with cell phone chargers. 

 

NX does actually have quite a list of supporters and potential developers. 

 

There were some rumors that NX would have a portable launch early 2017 and a home console launch at the end of 2017. No one knows what is in the mind of Nintendo though. If there is a full scale console to go along side this portable system. It was said to have a docking station to load games up to the TV. Perhaps both the Docking station and the portable load off graphics together for a higher resolution. All of it is still hypothetical until Nintendo says this is what we have. They did patent something dealing with being a supplemental computing device. So some sort of hardware that works with existing hardware to improve game quality. Maybe NX Portable games dock to the Home console and get a 1080p upgrade. Similar to PSNeo/XBScorpio with 2 SDK development maybe Nintendo is doing that with its portable games where they all can be using both. An idea I suppose. Not quite sure their direction with it. Nintendo never talks specs so the hardware must be dissected at some point.

Microsoft Lol Scorpio has 6Tflops and its only helping 4k Tvs? Lies. Next year they will change thier story. All of thier exclusive games will have godly graphics at E3. New message It will look better on Scorpio. Who buys new Tv for games? I buy monitors.  Scorpio is 5 times more GPU grunt than Xbone. 

 

There is word that Sony pulled Red Dead trailer due to the Orlando thing. Hmm._.

AMD stated in 2015 expect a 5x increase on next gen chips to be produced by 2018. Polaris is 2x its decent alot of NX rumors could line up with it. Vega, and Navi coming 2017, 2018. I expect HBM2 in Next gen. HBM2 is coming  this year. Will be cheap enough in 2018. Maybe HBM3? AMD has Next gen memory  slated for 2018. Not sure what that is myself.  AMD is said to be testing GDDR5X with its 400 series GPUs. They come later this year.

 

PS4K is a PS5 prototype. Not meant to be leaked. Its nowhere near final. Specs could get much higher.

Anyway, what I came here to talk about was this new article that Destructoid has posted, entitled... *deep breath*...

 

RUMOUR: NINTENDO FUNDING BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL SEQUEL

 

 


 

Nintendo, if you do this, if you make this happen, I will take back every nasty thing I've ever said about you. I will stop complaining about Metroid Federation Force. I'll stop bringing up Reggie's Samus pin. I'll pretend the Wii U has a snappy OS. I'll stop asking for a Captain Toad Platinum game (no I won't).

 

Nintendo. Nintendo, I'm ready. I'm ready for this. You have my sword, and by sword I mean money in exchange for an NX on day one. Let's do this.

It is actually a possibility, but if true it would also lead one to believe Ubisoft has other lofty games coming to NX as well. Assassin's Creed did skip this year. Wonder why? Well an extra platform maybe? Rumor flood is slowing beginning. Including speak of Final Fantasy XV, and FF7 Remake coming to NX rumor. 

 

There is also rumor of Activision already signing up to develop for NX with Skylanders, Call of Duty Bloodline, Destiny 2 already lined up. Which is a plus for Nintendo. 

 

Its not a rumor that EA is actually meeting with Nintendo throughout March. So... they likely have them on board as well. 

 

They are aiming pretty big it seems for publisher support. Alot of rumors point to a new handheld/mobile device in 2016 and home console in 2017. That can link up and uses the same new OS. Other little rumors as well. Nintendo actually will be at E3 this year with a conference too. As far as power goes its very tight lipped. Some rumors hint of lower specs matching XB1 and others hint at higher specs than PS4. Nintendo never tells hardware so it has to be dissected when it launches later on.

Regarding Windows 10 store. I say noone should buy any game from it. Its the same idea as Games for Windows Live. They are trying to force it upon gamers. NOONE wanted it. Microsoft thinks it can become Apple overnight with its PC business and well. Its just not happening. Its entire Windows store and ideas in the past 5 years have been aiming at competing with ipad, iphone, imac, and so on. While Microsoft has the people behind its platform supporting Windows because well its the ONLY thing out there supported by 99% of apps and things. They have never tried to appeal to their PC gaming consumers. They just tie them into things. Which is alot of the reason why they don't get consumer support in the PC gaming realm. Steam owns the PC market and we all know it. Windows 10 store is a minority, just like Linux, and OSX gaming. All have decent growing populations, but its a no brainer that Steam holds a heavy chunk of the market. What Microsoft is doing now could create a big OS split in the market over time. Valve saw that and created SteamOS. Meh but its just their way I suppose. I suspect Windows won't be the only major OS in the future either way. 

 

As far as PC hardware goes if ya haven't heard it already. AMD wants to be on top again. AMD is aiming for a 40% increase in performance or more with AMD's Zen CPUs and APUs. Which is more than a little impressive. It would put them in the gaming CPU category again. They also have 8 core Zen APUs with competitive GPUs to come. This article sums it up nicely. They also list 16 or 32 core Zen stuff, but I expect that is server side. Its really interesting to me. 

 

Valve changed Nuke, and a new operation for those Counter-strike folks. 

 

Epics MOBA thing. I personally don't get the whole co-op beat down AI craze. I like competition.

Game controller battery charging in 1 minute for 8 hours of play. I assume this comes along with 2015's newly discovered Solid State battery technology, but I could be wrong. Either way its pretty awesome. 

 

FPS multiplayer action + Zombies. Looks better than some other attempts..., but its not here yet so I hold judgement.
