Flamengo and Corinthians Sign PES 2016 Exclusivity Deal

gamrFeed - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 16:30

Most major football teams sign deals with Electronic Arts to appear exclusively in the FIFA franchise.

However, two major Brazilian teams have opted to sign a deal with Konami instead. As a result, both Flamengo and Corinthians will appear exclusively in Pro Evolution Soccer 2016.

This decision follows on from Electronic Arts failing to reach an agreement with the Brazilian league.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 3460, and PC this September.

Thanks Mirror.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition to Include All 4 Gears Games

gamrFeed - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 14:47

Microsoft has announced that if you purchase Gears of War: Ultimate Edition (or receive the game as part of the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition bundle) then you'll be given access to all four Xbox 360 Gears of War titles on Xbox One.

The three additional Gears of War titles are not included on the disc and haven't received the remaster treatment like the original title, rather they will be made available to download via Xbox Live thanks to them receiving backwards compatibility from August 25 through December 31, 2015.

If you already own any of those titles for the Xbox 360 then you'll also be able to play them on your Xbox One without having to purchase Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition releases on the Xbox One in August. The game is also set to release on PC some time thereafter, although no firm release date has been announced for this version.

Nomura: No Plans for a PS4 Port of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5/2.5 ReMIX

gamrFeed - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 13:14

If you were holding out hope that Square Enix would port Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5/2.5 ReMIX to the PlayStation 4 then prepare for some disappointing news.

In an interview with Ruliweb, series director Tetsuya Nomura confirmed that there are currently no plans for a port. Nomura was quoted saying the following:

"Recently, we also received a significant increase in requests for the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix to be released on the PS4. Unfortunately, we don't have any plans for that."
