Ubisoft Announces eBook Based On Watch Dogs Called //n/DARK Clouds - Book inspired by game

Just Push Start - 5 hours 17 min ago
Ubisoft has announced an eBook inspired by Watch Dogs called Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds. The weirdly named book is being written by John Shirley and the book’s storyline takes place after the game ends. This is the first eBook Ubisoft has produced. Here’s what author John Shirley had to say on the project: “Working on Watch Dogs was enormously interesting to me because its world offers the convergence of cyberpunk and the edgy tech reality of our times; it all plays out with action and energy against the inner city backdrop that I thrive in” said John Shirley. “With hack tech in one hand and gun in the other, Aiden Pearce is a believable fusion of hacker and action hero who deliberately slips between the cracks of society to relentlessly pursue his agenda. The novel introduces Mick Wolfe, an ex-military, who get caught in a dangerous game in Chicago’s hyper connected and violent underground. Working with Thomas Geffroyd and Kevin Shortt at Ubisoft to develop the book was a rocking experience – Ubisoft is right out there on the frontier of videogame development. I couldn’’t ask for more inspiration”. Watch_Dogs //n/Dark Clouds will be available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish at the game’s release on May 27, 2014. It will be available in two digital formats: an upgraded e-book version with interactive elements including videos and image and a classic e-book.

Pokémon Center: Sechs neue Event-Pokémon mit Mega-Steinen

Heute wurden sechs neue Event-Pokémon angekündigt, die in allen japanischen Pokémon Centern in Tokio, Osaka, Nagoya, Yokohama, Fukuoka, Sapporo und Tohoku zwischen Mai und Juni verteilt werden. Anlass für die Verteilung ist eine Turnierserie namens „ポケモンセンターバトル チャンピオン決定戦“ (Pokémon Center Battle Champion Ketteisen), die in verschiedenen Alterklassen und mit verschiedenen Kampfregeln zwischen Mai und Juli stattfinden wird.

Verteilt werden folgende Pokémon: Garados, Scherox, Kangama, Gengar, Despotar und Flunkifer.

gamrFeed - 10 hours 58 min ago

Microsoft has announced that shipments for the Xbox One has topped five million units worldwide. This announcement comes one day after Sony announced the PlayStation 4 has hit seven million units sold.

Microsoft has also stated that the Xbox One sold 311,000 units in March in the US, according to NPD. Titanfall was the bestselling game, but Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Respawn have not provided exact figures.

"The new generation is off to a strong start, with global Xbox One sales outpacing Xbox 360 by more than 60 percent at the same point in time, a true testament to your love of console gaming," said Xbox corporate vice president Yusuf Mehdi. "Even more important to us is how much fun you are having on Xbox One. It's amazing that Xbox One fans are spending an average of five hours per day on Xbox One and collectively have totaled more than one billion hours of time spent in games and apps on the console."

"We're also thrilled to see your use and enjoyment of the latest features and apps we have released as part of our regular system updates. In particular, we broke new usage records with the number of unique Twitch broadcasters in the first week of availability," Mehdi continued. "Of course, we're just getting started with this generation and the months ahead will bring several announcements we think you'll love.

"The team will continue to deliver regular improvements and new features based on your feedback through frequent system updates," added Mehdi. "Many more games are on the way with titles like Sunset Overdrive and Project Spark, many new games coming to Xbox One through the ID@Xbox program, and many more entertainment experiences. We can't wait to share more games with you in June at E3."
