Oh dear.

... after the NPD news, it looks like the PlayStation 4 is ploughing forward to a 2:1 (worldwide) lead.

In a month where the Xbox One had a $100 price cut and Titanfall, their biggest game of the year, was thrown in for nothing, the PS4 still comfortably - despite the continued shortage issues - outsold the Xbox One in home territory.

One has to wonder what is going on behind the scenes at Microsoft today!

Time for my nightly RDR (360) update!

I did 3 missions today! First one started with a sniping gunfight, followed by a normal gunfight through a forest hideout. Second one featured a small gunfight through that same hideout, followed by a section of fighting off attackers while riding back into town. Third one featured another sniping gunfight, followed a by a section where you had to fight off attackers while riding from one town to another.

In other news, I hunted my first few buffalo & elk, and purchased the most expensive property yet, a nice lookinh $400 log cabin.

Not sure they really need to be worried about being outsold by the fastest selling console of all time. Xbox One is selling faster than most consoles have at this stage of their life, and I doubt many expected that from a console that's weaker technically AND more expensive than it's competition.

Probably not much. This early in a consoles lifespan is not time to panic. Plus 2nd place isn't such a bad place to be in the video game business. I'm sure they want 1st place but eh Microsoft saw with the PS3 the kind of turn around a console can have as time progresses. Titanfall is a big release but I think it's just the big release of first half of the year.

I did two missions today! First one featured a huge shootout where you were manning a Gatling Gun in an armored truck, followed by a lengthy riding section, then a gunfight through the enemy's camp, ending out with the most anti-climactic confrontation ever...

Second one had me doing another cattle drive, though this time I had to fight off cattle rustlers while doing it.

Why did Microsoft hype the game in an absurdly over the top manner since the first showing at E3 last year? You could not not see it being mentioned on any website(s) in the month or two leading up to the games release date.

... if you do not think Titanfall is/was their biggest game of this year, please tell me what on Earth is?!

I'm not saying Titan Fall is a worthless game. I'm saying that itls available on Xbox 360 and PC, so they couldn't have expected it to boost Xbox One as much as people say they think it would. There was hype, but it wasn't only focused on Xbox One.

If you buy the game on Xbox 360, Xbox One, or PC, the money is still only going to EA and Microsoft. Xbox One is only 1 of 3 consoles.

I don't know what games they plan on releasing this year. We'll just have to see what comes out.

5 missions tonight! First one had me hunting some elk. Second one had me shooting crows. Third one just had me driving a wagon from one area to another (with a very generous time limit). Fourth one had me hunting wolves. Fifth one was another cattle drive with a very brief combat section.

Missions have been very easy as of late. I have a feeling this is some sort of calm before the storm (especially considering the story context of these missions). In other news, my "Honor" rank is now Hero.

Lift London's first game is a Science Fiction RPG for mobile and OC called Edens Fall.
Untitled

Here's the QA from the blog.

The Basics
Eden Falls, eh? What’s that supposed to be? A disease?
Eden Falls is a science fiction themed role-playing game, featuring deeply tactical turn-based combat and an exciting story of epic proportions. The game will be published episodically.

Who exactly are you guys anyway?
The game is being developed by Brimstone Interactive, an independent studio based in Helsinki, Finland. Our team currently consists of 5 awesome people with experience from companies such as Supercell, RedLynx, Mountain Sheep and Recoil Games.

Alright. What platforms will the game be coming out?
Our primary target is to release the game on tablets first (iOS, Android, Windows), with a HD version for PC coming out a bit later. Don’t hold us to it, though, since we’ve only been working full time on the project for a few months.

When are you planning to release Eden Falls?
We aim to release the first episode in Fall 2014 for iOS and Android tablets. The PC release schedule has not been decided yet.

What kind of an age rating can I expect? Is it going to be violent?
Eden Falls will deal with some heavy topics and is thus targeted towards a mature, adult audience. Sex, drugs and violence will all play their part through out the story.

Will the game be single-player only? What about multiplayer?
Yes. Eden Falls is designed from the ground up as a single player RPG. We have no plans to include any multiplayer functionality in the first episode at least. Future multiplayer support is possible for the later releases.

And the system requirements are?
You’ll be able to play the game on any modern tablet device. Hardware requirements for the PC version have not been estimated yet.

What about peripherals like gamepads?
Due to the nature of the game, this will be something we’ll have to look into in the future. We’ll most likely have no support for gamepads or other types of controllers for Episode 1.

How much will it cost?
We don’t know yet.

Will there be a demo of the game?
A demo version for the PC is a possibility, yes. This is yet again one of those things we’ll just have to see about later on.

Development
What stage of development are you in at the moment?
We are currently in the prototype phase of development. To be more specific, we are working on the core components of the game, such as basic combat and enemy AI, turn-based logic, action points and such. Much of our time has gone into programming our very own level editor and tools, which will be used to make the actual game.

What game engine are you using?
We’re using the wonderful Unity game engine, since it gives us cutting edge, industry standard features without compromising flexibility.

Will I be able to mod the game?
We’re putting a lot of effort into building a comprehensive toolset for us to use and have planned to release said tools to the players at some later point. We’d rather take the time to make them user friendly first, instead of releasing a set of cryptic pieces of code no one will understand. As usual, we’ll let you know once the situation develops.

Where are the screenshots and gameplay videos?
At the very moment, nowhere. Let’s just say that the gameplay stuff we have now is better left unseen. We’ll be uploading some sweet concept art and such, once the time is right. Watch this space.

It will probably come to the one since the system will be able to play and be cross buy with windows/Phone apps soon.

Some concept art as well.

I had that same moment with my PS2 the other day. Decided I wanted to play some Rachet and Clank and I had to look where the square button was at one point. All I could think was 'that's weird'.

I just looked up The Shining Empire. It looks really good. I love the open endedness of it. I think I might do a "kill every living thing playthrough, why? Because I'm a psychopath? :)" lol. I'll have to get it on PC though, unless I grab a 360 by then, but that's looking less likely to be soon as a lot things of mine keep breaking, to the point where I'm wondering "What next?"

More news on the Xbox TV stuff
Untitled

Confirmed shows

“Halo” television series

The “Halo” television series is a groundbreaking original series based on the award-winning “Halo” franchise. Award-winning filmmaker, director and producer Steven Spielberg will executive produce the live-action TV series, created in partnership with 343 Industries and Amblin Television.

“Every Street United”

“Every Street United” is an unscripted series of eight, thirty-minute episodes and a one-hour finale, featuring legendary soccer players Thierry Henry and Edgar Davids, focused on the global search for soccer’s most gifted and undiscovered street stars scouted across eight countries (United States, England, Argentina, Spain, Brazil, the Netherlands, Ghana and South Korea). The series culminates this July in a 4v4 street game finale in the shadow of the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro.

Each episode will feature unique and incisive narratives about the grassroots street stars and the communities that shaped them. Industry veteran and eight-time Emmy-Award winning producer, director, writer and editor Jonathan Hock (“Streetball,” “30 for 30: The Best That Never Was”) is directing the series. Emmy-Award winning producer Mike Tollin and Mandalay Sports Media are executive producing. Professional soccer luminaries, Henry and Davids, will serve as coaches for the 4v4 street game in Rio. “Every Street United” will premiere in June 2014. All episodes will be available through Xbox Video for Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows 8 (PC and Surface) and Windows Phone 8.

Bonnaroo

Xbox owners around the globe can experience the magic of the 13th annual Bonnaroo music and arts festival with a live concert destination on Xbox Live Friday, June 13 through Sunday, June 15, 2014, brought to viewers in partnership with Superfly Presents. With the Bonnaroo app, fans can enjoy live music like never before, with a virtual experience featuring the best performances, multiple stages, biggest artists and amazing SuperJams, and explore this year’s lineup to see the best of Bonnaroo’s past with exclusive performances. Fans can also join the conversation with fellow virtual-Bonnaroovians and get connected to their friends and the festival. Xbox is the exclusive broadcasting partner for Bonnaroo and the only location to get all of the interactive features.

“Signal to Noise”/“Atari: Game Over”

Xbox is creating a new six film documentary series, “Signal to Noise,” (working title) with two-time Academy Award winning producer Simon Chinn (“Searching for Sugar Man” and “Man on Wire”) and Emmy winning producer Jonathan Chinn (FX’s “30 Days” and PBS’s “American High”), through their multi-platform media company, Lightbox. The series will expose little known stories of how modern technology has radically altered the way we interact with our world.

The first installment, “Atari: Game Over” (working title), explores the fabled Atari mystery, dubbed “The Great Video Game Burial of 1983.” As the legend goes, the Atari Corporation, faced with overwhelmingly negative response to the E.T. video game, disposed of millions of unsold game cartridges by burying them in the small town of Alamogordo, New Mexico. Fuel Entertainment took an interest in the legend, and in December 2013, with help from local garbage contractor Joe Lewandowski, acquired the exclusive rights to excavate the Alamogordo landfill. Fuel Entertainment then brought the opportunity to Xbox Entertainment Studios. The team will head to the landfill in question to determine if the story is true, interviewing a cast of characters related to the game and its mystery along the way. “Atari: Game Over” is directed by writer/director Zak Penn (“X-Men 2,” “Avengers,” and “Incident at Loch Ness”). It will air exclusively on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in 2014.

“Humans”

“Humans” is a bold new drama co-produced with UK broadcaster Channel 4. Award-winning UK production company Kudos (“The Hour,” “Utopia,” “Broadchurch”) will produce the hour-long, eight-episode series, which will share a premiere broadcast window on the Xbox platform and Channel 4 in the UK in 2015.

Executive produced by Jane Featherstone (“Life on Mars,” “Broadchurch”) and Derek Wax (“The Hour,” “Sex Traffic”), and written by British writing team Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“Spooks,” “Spooks: The Greater Good”), “Humans” is an English-language adaptation of Sveriges Television and Matador Film’s acclaimed Swedish series, “Real Humans.” “Humans” is set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant eerily similar to its live counterpart. In the hope of transforming the way they live, one strained suburban family purchases a refurbished synth only to discover that sharing life with a machine has far-reaching and chilling consequences. Casting for “Humans” will begin in May 2014, and production will commence later this summer.

“Halo” digital feature

343 Industries and Scott Free Productions are creating a "Halo" digital feature to be released later this year. The project will be executive produced by Ridley Scott and Scott Free TV President, David Zucker. Sergio Mimica-Gezzan ("Battlestar Galactica," "Pillars of the Earth," "Heroes") will direct.

Projects in development

“Deadlands”

Xbox Entertainment Studios has committed to a script based on the successful pen-and-paper role playing game created by Shane Lacy Hensley. “Deadlands” is a genre-bending alternative history of the Weird West, filled with undead gunfighters, card-slinging sorcerers, mad scientists, secret societies, and fearsome abominations.

“Extraordinary Believers”

Xbox Entertainment Studios is developing an innovative, hybrid stop-motion show dubbed “Extraordinary Believers” (working title) with Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, creators of the Emmy-Award winning “Robot Chicken,” the longest running stop-motion show on television. The executive producers on the project are Seth Green, Matt Senreich, and creators/writers/executive producers are Eric Towner and John Harvatine IV.

“Fearless”

“Fearless,” (working title) is an unscripted series currently in pilot production starring Paul de Gelder, an Australian Navy bomb clearance diver and shark attack survivor who takes on an adrenaline-fueled quest to aid individuals who risk their lives to make the world a better place. “Fearless” will be produced by Australia’s International Emmy-Award winning production company, Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder (CJZ).

“Gun Machine”

Xbox Entertainment Studios acquired the rights to “Gun Machine,” a hardboiled detective thriller based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Warren Ellis. Ellis will executive produce with Brett Conrad (“The Killing,” “Sons of Anarchy,” Netflix’s upcoming “Marco Polo”) who has signed on to write the pilot script about a detective tracking a serial killer who is tied to a mysterious collection of guns used in infamous New York murders.

Untitled JASH Comedy/Variety Half Hour

In this unique comedy format developed by Xbox Entertainment Studios with JASH (a comedy collective founded by Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric and Reggie Watts), the biggest names in comedy will showcase the people that make them laugh. Each week, a different comedian will host/curate a show featuring new and unsung talent, in various video formats. Sarah Silverman will host the pilot episode and Daniel Kellison (“Late Night/Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Crank Yankers”) will executive produce. The series has a pilot commitment and will begin shooting in June.

“Winterworld”

Xbox Entertainment Studios and IDW Entertainment are co-developing a limited event live-action series based on Chuck Dixon and artist Jorge Zaffino’s seminal graphic novel series “Winterworld,” in which our world has been encased in ice from pole-to-pole. The surviving humans have formed tribes that war, enslave and trade with one another in an effort to survive the infinite winter. Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, and Rick Jacobs and Dave Alpert from Circle of Confusion (“Walking Dead”) will executive produce.

I think MS is going to strike back at Sony at E3 in a big way this year. It kind of has to and Sony, like its fanboys seems complacent. Could be wrong of course, but MS has deep pockets and I'm sure it's been throwing around some money so I'm looking forward to seeing what is going to come of that. If a $400 Xbox One bundle without Kinect is announced, I'm going to start saving.

They'll probably announce some interesting titles that they will ignore at launch so that they can focus on more games where you get less content for a shooter.
