Microsoft Now Owns Tech That Powers Some Of The Biggest PS4 Games

Havok the physics engine behind Uncharted 4 and Horizon Zero Dawn has been acquired by Microsoft. Is it a problem for Sony? I don’t think so, as Microsoft has announced in a statement that they will continue to license the technology out to anyone and everyone that wants to use it. This is a positive move for the engine, as Microsoft does suggest that it hopes that the acquisition will further strengthen its cloud-based computing services, which they are starting to see the fruits of from a gaming persuasion in Crackdown 3. Havok has been used in many games, such as Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Just Cause, Medal of Honor, Portal and many more. And in the coming future if Microsoft does want to license the technology then it is highly unlikely that they would deny Sony, as rival c...

What Happens To Your Games If You Die

We all have migrated from owning discs of games to owning digital copies in our digital libraries. It could be Steam, Origins, Uplay, PlayStation Network or Xbox Live. Some of us might have an account that’s not worth much but there are also people who’ve spent more than a thousand dollars in just games. So what happens in the unfortunate event that you die? Ever wondered what happens to your digital library? Well, a user on the Steam Community asked if they passed away and pass on their steam account in their will, would it be done. Well, there’s an answer to that and the answer is yes. If you do state it in your will, Steam will not block the change of ownership. Here’s the statement from one of the steam moderators: Well, that’s good news for Steam users bu...

The Top 7 Most Disappointing Announcements At E3 2017

We covered the top showings at E3 2017 and now we’re covering the disappointments from E3. This is all based on my personal opinion, which will differ from yours so please, don’t come at me with your pitchforks. Nintendo Metroid Prime 4 Nintendo had a pretty great conference, probably the best conference this year so choosing a disappointing announcement was kinda hard. This was extreme nitpicking but they announced Metroid Prime 4 with what was essentially a gif of the title of the game. It hyped everyone up for sure but then we have nothing else, no images or screenshots or alpha footage or anything. Sony Monsters of the Deep Okay, what? No seriously, why even announce this? A Final Fantasy Fishing game for the VR because apparently, people’s fantasy is to fish. Microso...

Sony blocking Cross-Play for Profit?

With recent announcements that Minecraft will allow cross-play between all the platforms and Rocket League for the Switch also announcing that it’ll feature cross-play, Sony has made a strange decision and have blocked cross-play on their platforms. The reasoning behind this decision is very weak and quite frankly, not a smart one but what do we “players” know. In an interview with Eurogamer, PlayStation global sales and marketing head Jim Ryan had this to say, “We’ve got to be mindful of our responsibility to our install base”, he says. “Minecraft – the demographic playing that, you know as well as I do, it’s all ages but it’s also very young. We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation...

Microsoft’s Xbox One X To Trump PS4 Pro?

When the Xbox One was announced originally, people were skeptical if it was more powerful than the PS4. Turns out it was not as powerful as the PS4 which led to a lot of criticism towards Microsoft and Xbox. Then came the PS4 Pro and people bashed Microsoft even more. Sony even upped their exclusives’ game in the meantime which led to the rise of PlayStation’s popularity which left people wondering if Microsoft would step up their game and if so then how? We heard rumours about Project Scorpio for a long time, every couple of months we would get new information but nothing substantial about it. Then they revealed that Scorpio would run games at 4k and people were skeptical but still intrigued by the idea of it. Now, we finally have it officially announced, with the specs and ga...

Windows 10 To Get A “Game Mode”?

Microsoft might have some big plans for gaming on Windows 10. As cited by Ubergizmo, Twitter user @h0x0d found a new “gamemode.dll” in the latest developer build of Windows 10. This Dll apparently allows users to adjust CPU and GPU resources in order to allocated more power for running games instead of background applications. [email protected] 14997 has a new dll “gamemode.dll”, so it looks like Game Mode is a thing — WalkingCat (@h0x0d) 28 December 2016 Essentially, it allows your PC to act like a console, freeing up most of the processing power solely for gaming purposes. This move is also indicative of the fact that Microsoft continues to take gaming on Windows 10 more and more seriously, offering features like Xbox Play Anywhere, which allows you to run selective games o...
