Pachter: West, Zampella have no chance of getting Modern Warfare rights

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2238 days, 11 hours, 12 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 8:11:30 AM GMT
In addition to being the official economic soothsayer of the gaming industry, Michael Pachter knows a thing or two about legal affairs. Actually, he has a pair of law degrees, so odds are good that he knows more than two things. Regardless, he recently sounded off to IndustryGamers about former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella's chances of gaining ownership of the Modern Warfare brand form Activision through legal action. His opinion? They've got "no prayer." (more)

Retailers shoot down 3DS returns due to headaches story

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2238 days, 11 hours, 12 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 8:10:49 AM GMT
A report in tabloid The Sun of the 3DS making headaches in "thousands" of users is just plain untrue according to Nintendo, HMV and GAME, the three entities the paper mentions. Nintendo said returns are "well below" other hardware launches and GAME says less than five people have complained that the portable made them ill. In fact, you can't even return something in the UK because it made you sick (more)

Rockstar's Dan Houser on transmedia and building L.A. Noire

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2238 days, 11 hours, 13 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 8:09:57 AM GMT
The Hollywood Reported chatted with Rockstar's Dan Houser at the Tribeca Film Festival (where L.A. Noire is being shown off as an "interactive screening") and he said that, despite all of the attempts at solid transmedia properties recently, "no one has done it very successfully yet." The issue, in his opinion, is that companies are all too often going for money rather than what's right for the medium. "Too often, however," he said, "the aim appears to be to cash-in on the success of a particular game, b... (more)

Smedley: Free Realms on track to 100 million players

Wednesday, April 06, 2011 8:09:20 AM GMT
What's up, World of Warcraft? You think you're so big and bad with your 12-million-strong-and-then-some player base? You won't be quite so intimidating if Sony Online Entertainment head John Smedley's vision for Free Realms comes to fruition. In a recent interview with GamesIndustry, Smedley said, "I think it could take five or six years - that should give you some idea [of the time frame we're looking at]. But I don't see any reason why it can't go to 100 million [players], because there are so many kid... (more)

Sony hasn’t earned itself a lot of fans in its crusade against George Hotz, the hacker who managed to jailbreak the PS3. However, it seems the negative reactions to Sony’s behavior have reached fever pitch, as the company this week found itself to be the latest target of Anonymous and a more aggressive Anonymous splinter group (more)

Richard Branson launches Virgin Oceanic to explore the ocean's depths

Wednesday, April 06, 2011 7:43:21 AM GMT
Sir Richard Branson may have already branded his Necker Nymph aero submarine with the "Virgin Oceanic" moniker, but he's now finally taken things to the next logical (and ambitious) step. He's just announced a new, full-fledged venture of the same name, which promises to do to nothing short of dive to the deepest part of each of the Earth's five oceans -- all within the next two years, no less.

Kinect hack turns tourists into 3D souvenirs (video)

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 2238 days, 11 hours, 40 minutes ago
Wednesday, April 06, 2011 7:42:51 AM GMT
As souvenirs go, a miniature replica of yourself -- striking a pose of your choosing on Barcelona's La Rambla street -- is a far sight more original than a bullfights-and-senoritas snow globe. This past January, the hilariously titled BlablabLAB enlisted three Kinects and a RepRap machine to snap passersby and render them into personalized tchotchkes, in a project called Be Your Own Souvenir. Subjects stood atop a small platform, mimicking the human statues on La Rambla, as the Kinects captured their lik... (more)

When Square Enix restarted the Final Fantasy XI and XIV servers after the Tohoku earthquake, it offered free play through the month of April. However, Square Enix has actually been offering Final Fantasy XIV play for free since launch -- its free trial period kept being extended and has never stopped. It was extended indefinitely when Square Enix restructured the team and announced plans to overhaul the game (more)

New Super Mario Bros. Wii arcade medal game primed for Japan

Monday, April 04, 2011 7:32:29 AM GMT
Before cursing the heavens, realize that the Capcom-developed New Super Mario Bros. Wii arcade machine isn't what you think it is. The Mario Bros. cabinet is actually a "medal game" -- in other words, it's a series of Mario-related mini-games (slot machines and the like) that can earn players more medals (i.e. tokens). According to Siliconera, players that reach Bowser in the up-to-four-player game have a shot at winning a jackpot. (more)

Forza 4 pitch video pulled by Microsoft

If you must suffer an unforeseen failure in confidentiality on any day of the year, what better day than April 1st? It's the one time when the internet can muster some skepticism, even while presented with purportedly leaked footage of a high-profile sequel. Doubt over the authenticity of an "internal" pitch video of Forza Motorsport 4 might have obscured the news, had Microsoft not pulled it from Youtube. (more)

It took just ten days for Angry Birds Rio -- the movie tie-in spinoff of Angry Birds -- to land on over 10 million mobile phones. An ambiguous tweet from Angry Birds dev Rovio announced the news, stating, "10 in 10 ... Angry Birds Rio breaking all records. A massive thanks to all our fans!!!" Mobile-Ent.biz clarified the tweet's meaning moments later, asking if the "10 in 10" was referring to 10 million downloads in the first 10 days. (more)

IE9 is Most Energy Efficient Browser, So Says MS

Monday, April 04, 2011 7:28:46 AM GMT
We all know the benefits of having an energy efficient system. Lower energy requirements mean bills, a smaller carbon footprint, and the immediate benefit of longer battery life. While the first concern of power management is to have energy efficient hardware, there's always the question of what software does with the hardware. Microsoft posted a blog article on its MSDN highlighting how much it feels that Internet Explorer 9 is the winner when it comes to keeping power draw to a minimum. (more)

Word on the street is that we’ll have to wait until 2015 to see the new Xbox 720 -- and the PS4? That’s not exactly set for a holiday release, either. However, it seems Epic is hoping its DirectX11 Unreal Engine demo will make console manufacturers want to pick up the pace. (more)
