Square Enix to Announce New RPG in December, It Isn't a Remake

gamrFeed - Tue, 11/25/2014 - 21:24

Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda has revealed the publisher will have a big announcement in December. The company will announce a new RPG for consoles and it isn't a remake, according to an interview with Famitsu and translated by Gematsu.

"Actually, right now, we’re working on a new RPG specifically for consoles and it isn’t a remake," sad Matsuda. "We’ll start talking about it more in December and go from there."

"Just so we’re clear, we also still have a lot of titles in the pipeline for not just consoles, but also smartphones and PCs, and this includes games that our overseas studios are working on," Matsuda continued. "I can’t talk about what platform those other titles are going to be on yet, whether they’ll be on console or mobile, but I believe we should have a wide variety of games to announce after the new year arrives."

"These are projects that began after I assumed the role of president at Square Enix. We’re going to have a lot to show for both Japan and overseas markets."

There are three major gaming events in December where the game could be announced. The events are Sony's PlayStation Experience, Jump Festa and The Game Awards.

Sony Settles on Misleading PlayStation Vita Ads, Early Adopters Get Partial Refund

gamrFeed - Tue, 11/25/2014 - 20:34

Sony Computer Entertainment America was charged with false advertising about the 'game changing' feature of the PlayStation Vita when the handheld first launched in 2011. Sony has now agreed on a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission.

Sony will no longer be allowed to create misleading advertisement in the future. Also people who purchased a PlayStation Vita before June 1, 2012 in the US will either get a $25 refund or a $50 voucher on select games and/or services.

"As we enter the year's biggest shopping period, companies need to be reminded that if they make product promises to consumers -- as Sony did with the "game changing" features of its PS Vita -- they must deliver on those pledges," said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "The FTC will not hesitate to act on behalf of consumers when companies or advertisers make false product claims."

When the PlayStation Vita first launched advertisements claimed the handheld would enable consumers to play their PlayStation 3 games using 'remote play.' The ads also stated that users would be able to play a game on the PlayStation 3 and then continue on the go with the Vita. The Federal Trade Commission claimed this was misleading.

1.04 Patch For Ultra Street Fighter IV Arriving After Capcom Cup

Just Push Start - Tue, 11/25/2014 - 19:49

ultra one oh four

Capcom’s support for Ultra Street Fighter IV is extending well beyond the title’s initial launch. With the upcoming 1.04 update, Ultra will be getting a number of features that were teased prior to launch but never made it into the retail release in August.

Edition Select was a popular addition to Ultra Street Fighter IV when it was released, allowing players on a local setup to take their favorite character balance into a mano-e-mano battle. Now, with 1.04, players will be able to take Vanilla Sagat or AE Yun online in unranked matches. Also, Omega Mode will be added to the editions available if you really want to see some crazy stuff. Parries? Fireballs shot from your feet? Throwing literal salt? All of these will be available the moment version 1.04 hits Ultra.

Updated character trials will also be added to Ultra Street Fighter IV. All of the characters added with both Arcade Edition and Ultra were missing trials which will be added next month. Some character trials that were broken with the move changes in Ultra will also be fixed, allowing those trials to be finishable once more.

Capcom has not given an exact date other than 1.04 will be available after Capcom Cup. The Capcom Cup finals will take place on December 13th in San Francisco, CA.
