Confirmed: Ubisoft Working on PS4, XBox 720 Video Games

250°
278w ago - As part of Ubisoft's financial report released yesterday, company founder Yves Guillemot stated "10 percent of Ubisoft's workforce is working on developing games for the next generation of game systems that will eventually replace [the] Wii, [the] Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3."

Yes, he actually said that.

To quote: "What has helped us is we always take the new technologies right at the beginning of their availability, and we go after them faster than everyone else," he continued.

The company was one of the first to make titles exclusively for the Wii, and appear to wish to continue this with launch titles for the PS4 and whatever the next Xbox will be called.

278w ago - Q-Games Ltd. President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has confirmed on Sony's PlayStation Blog today that PixelJunk 1-4 will be named PixelJunk Shooter, as follows:

We are now proud to announce that the name of the game has been picked! It will be called PixelJunk Shooter. Andy, the artist behind the style of the game, has knocked up a stunning logo that emphasizes the liquid element really well, as you can see below!

The lucky winner, picked from a hat of about 8 other people who voted for the same name, is Mario Paquet from Canada! We chose the name because: 1) it's simple, 2) it describes the main thing you do in the game, and 3) it makes a great logo!

The other runner-up names were:

• PixelJunk Depths - Thomas Ella
• PixelJunk Atlantis - Takuhiro Hara
• PixelJunk Caves - Chi Lo
• PixelJunk Blaster - Edward Stumpfel
• PixelJunk S.O.S! - Derrick Kross

Other people voted for these names of course, but the above runners-up were picked out of a hat for each name in turn, so congratulations! T-shirts will be winging their way to you.

The most popular name suggested by a long shot was PixelJunk Elements, but we decided that it didn't capture the shooting side of the game well enough and at the...
 

XBox 360 Unannounced 'AAA' Exclusive Confirmed for E3 2009

100°
279w ago - Today we received confirmation of sorts that at least one big surprise is due for this year's E3 conference.

Microsoft's E3 strategy for media involves a run of four behind-closed-doors demos which you need to opt-in to blindly prior to the event.

The nature of what is behind these doors is kept secret you see, although in some cases you don't have to be Professor Fink to work out what they are. It's a fair bet that Halo: ODST, for example, takes up one of those slots, but what of the other three? Alan Wake maybe?

One thing is for sure, it sucks when you are trying to manage your busy E3 timetable and you don't know what you are going to see. Last year, for example, I could fit in two Microsoft demos and one of them turned out be You're in the Movies... stoked.

We got word today, however, that one of the four slots is for an unannounced new AAA exclusive. "AAA" is their word not ours, and it was all we were told. Excitement, much?

Is it a new IP, or is it a sequel? The word 'unannounced' removes the likes of Splinter Cell: Conviction, APB, Mass Effect 2, Blue Dragon 2 and the hotly rumoured Duke Nukem: Forever from the possibility list. Technically it could refer to Forza Motorsport 3 which has not been officially announced, although every man...
