Well, the rumors just keep on flying in the video game world. It is now rumored that several new consoles will be revealed at this years E3. These include: The XBox 720, PS4, and the 3DS Lite. Now, the 720 and the PS4 have had rumors flying around for the past couple of years, but the 3DS Lite is news to me(there could have been rumors going around and I haven’t been paying attention, so sue me for having a day job). Anyway, if these new systems are in fact revealed this summer than the next couple of years are gonna be pretty exciting in the gaming world. We know for a fact that the Wii U will be released soon and Sony and Microsoft both have a lot of hype concerning their new consoles, especially with the XBox 720. The newest rumor to surface about the 720 is that it might feature a DVR device. Well, with the new app additions and the eventual semi TV service that will become available through XBox Live, having a DVR system would be a great idea. But wait, that’s not all!! Along with a rumored DVR the 720 is also rumored to support the also rumored Kinect 2 hardware. Now the Kinect 2′s sensor is rumored to be so advanced that it will even be able to read the users lips. Now if you ask me, that’s pretty fucking scary. Well, there you have it. Rumors rumors everywhere but not a fact to be found….yet? Next week will be the Consumer Electronics Showcase(or CES) event. Which is where the 720 was rumored to be revealed a couple of months ago if you don’t remember. So maybe there will be some news that could help shed some light on all these rumors running around. Til next time. Peace!!
Whats up everybody?!? Well this is the first blog post I have ever done before in my life so if I screw this up please forgive me. First of all, thanks for coming to the site and checking us out. Secondly, if you are reading this then you are as much of a video game nerd as I am and want to re read all of things that were announced at E3 just a few weeks ago! Alright, here we go. Most importantly, Microsoft and 343 Industries announced not one, but two Halo games that are set to come out within the next year!! The first will be Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, which is basically a remake of the original Halo game and is set to come out on the 10 year anniversary of it’s release date!! So in other words, there’s going to be a Halo game coming out this November!! There’s not going to be anything special about this title accept that the graphics will be updated to HD quality. The gameplay and audio tracks will be kept the same as the original title. What’s pretty cool is that 343 Industries will allow players to actually see the difference in graphics between the original game and the remake. At any point during the game, the player can just press a button on the controller and the game will go from the HD game to the original with little to no load time. Now, the second Halo title announced is Halo 4!! There has been speculation about a possible fourth installment in the story of Master Chief since the ending of Halo 3. Now we know for sure, Halo 4 is in fact coming to us. It’s set to be released around Christmas time of 2012. So basically, Halo 4 will bring about the end of the world, haha! Anyway, Halo 4 will pick up where the after credits cut scene in Halo 3 left us. Early buzz is that the story will show WHO Master Chief is and that we will get an idea of who the man under the helmet is. Could this lead to actually seeing Master Chief’s face?? Who knows? It is expected that this next game will be a start to another trilogy but we will have to wait and see. Aside from the two Halo announcements Microsoft’s E3 panel was really Kinect heavy, which isn’t a bad thing, but with the exception of the two Halo games and a Gears of War 3 gameplay demo(which Gears 3 is really looking good) Microsoft seems to be focusing a lot on the Kinect this year, which makes sense because it’s still a relatively new product. Nintendo went off an announced a new system all together at E3. They announced the Nintendo Wii U. Now, it’s kinda difficult to explain what all it can do, so I’m gonna just post the trailer for it along with teaser trailers for the two Halo games and the Gears 3 trailer. That’s about all I have to say right now guys!! See ya’ll later!!
