Gearbox Has Revealed It’s Next Game, And It Is Not Borderlands!

battleborn-title

Today we finally get to see what Gearbox has been working for on the Ps4, Xbox One, and PC, or what we are now starting to call “current gen” . Not Many details have been given in regards to Battleborn yet, aside from this very interesting looking trailer they have released below.

At E3 this year Gearbox released the next Borderlands for last generation systems (PS3, Xbox360) but had nothing to reveal for current gen. So now we have found out what they were working on. Gearbox is calling Battleborn “A next-gen hero-shooter”. We don’t really know what that means, but we will be keeping an eye on this title, as we have had an absolute blast with the previous Borderlands games, so a new IP from Gearbox gets us very excited!

Take a look at the reveal trailer below.


No release date has been given yet for Battleborn, but we know it will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Let us know in the comments below what you think of this new IP from Gearbox.

Gamestop Still Has 2.3 Million Customers Waiting On PS4

Gamestop store

Gamestop announced today, that they have sold out of their initial allotment of Playstation 4’s, and that they are currently sitting on a backlog of 2.3 Million orders waiting to be filled. Gamestop executives said that the initial sales of the PS4 have outsold sales of the PS3 by more then 80% during the same period.

This is looking like fantastic news for Sony, as they already announced that they have sold 1 Million Playstation 4’s in the first 24 hours after release. Now, it appears that the initial hunger from consumers for the console will continue through the Holiday’s, and that will make trying to find a PS4 likely very difficult.

PS4 To Run Call of Duty: Ghosts In Native 1080p, Xbox One To Be Upscaled From 720p Says Infinity Ward

codg2

Today Via Twitter, Mark Rubin from Infinity Ward, the Studio Behind Call of Duty: Ghosts, has cleared the air about resolutions on the two next gen consoles. According to Rubin, the PS4 will run native 1080p and the Xbox One will be native 720p upscaled to 1080p.

Hey, been on the road last couple weeks so haven’t had a chance to update, but wanted to confirm that for Xbox One we’re 1080p upscaled from 720p. And, we’re native 1080p on PS4.  We optimized each console to hit 60 FPS and the game looks great on both. Still on the road, but glad to see the great reception to Extinction.  Can’t wait for next week’s launch.

So there we have it, finally an answer to all the questions that have been swirling around in the media these last few weeks.

Sony reveals PS4 to be $399 at launch.

Header

After much media speculation, Sony revealed tonight, during their press conference at E3, that the PS4 will launch this holiday season for $399. That puts it a solid 100$ less then the Xbox One. So between the price, and the total lack of any used game restrictions, Sony looks to be aiming for a price sensitive sweet spot, and dare I say, they are hitting it. Start, these console wars have!

Sony anounces used games strategy.

sony-ps4-logo

Today, in a shocking E3 reveal, Sony announced its used game policy and created a video to show you how exactly this will work.

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, It will work the exact same way it works now. No online checks, no needing to call home every 24 hours, your disk based games work exactly as they do right now. If you want to trade in your games, trade away my fellow gamers.  They also stated that unless you’re playing a MMO (Massively Online Game) you will not need to be connected to the Internet. So, for those of you out there who don’t have your consoles connected online, breathe easy my friends, Sony has you covered.

Nintendo, what they need to do to get back on track.

nintendo-logo

Ok, lets get something straight right now. This is not another doom and gloom post about how Nintendo won’t be around in a few years. This is a post to remind people and maybe even Nintendo about what they seem to be forgetting. I thought I would write my opening post here at Geekoholics by saying they are not nearly as far off mark as everyone is claiming. But I understand that they have somehow gotten a little off course since the Wii U.

I think the first issue that Nintendo has with the Wii U is the name. Instead of the Wii 2 or something completely different they chose the Wii U. I feel that this doesn’t do enough to send a message to people that this is in fact a new console and not just another Wii. Even in the original E3 press conference no one was sure if this was a new controller for the Wii or if in fact it was a new console. I feel that if they do want to get people buying the Wii U they need to do a better job of educating people that this is in fact a whole new HD Wii 2!

The Second issue that Nintendo needs to address is the games. Now I think this is a twofold issue at the moment. Firstly, they need to get some good games on the way from their own first party studios. We want a new 3rd person Mario game in HD!  We want a new more grown up Zelda in HD! People buy Nintendo consoles for the great first party Nintendo games, but we don’t just want rehashes, we want something new from Nintendo that pushes the new hardware, something that we haven’t seen for a while. Maybe a new Starfox in HD? Or what about a new Fire Emblem in HD on your TV, that is not a 3DS port?  Or what about a new third person Donkey Kong? These are the kinds of games that they need to be developing.
Secondly, They have to get third party developers excited and developing for their system. We are already hearing about too many games that are bypassing the Wii U. Without that support the Wii U will always struggle. For whatever reason Nintendo seems to be scaring away developers instead of embracing them and helping them to develop for their system. Third Party Support is key here.
Thirdly, I think it is very important to land some 3rd party exclusives that make sense for that system. As great as i think it was getting Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive, it really is not the kind of game that they should be aiming for as a Wii U Exclusive. They did great with the Lego City Undercover, they need more of these kinds of creative games that work to the strength of their system. They need to start working with 3rd party developers to get unique content for their system instead of just the quick hash of current gen games. Without these no one is going to feel the need to buy a Wii U. Give me a reason to buy your console over the other guys!

The Third issue that for whatever reason seems to scare Nintendo is online. They need to get their online strategy figured out and fast. They have so much potential with so many great games, and backlogs and yet they have far and away THE WORST online out of all the current gen consoles. What happens when the PS4 or Xbox 720 come out and change the rules even further then they already are in regards to online? Nintendo needs to stop being so terrified of the Internet and embrace it like everyone else has. The next gen is ONLINE! They need to realize this and make changes to address it. They need a unified account structure for all 3DS, Wii and Wii U under one account, not linked to the actual consoles.

Lastly, as much as it pains me to say this, they need a price drop. Not even because i think the Wii U is overpriced, but they need people talking about it again. I think so many people can smell it in the air that they are not buying because even though Nintendo says they won’t do one, they feel that they are going to soon, some people just need that little nudge. If they price dropped and get some good content out/on the way, i know they would start selling again.

I think Nintendo isn’t that far off track, but if they don’t start implementing some of these, they are going to veer off a course that will be very hard to recover from.
