E3 2009: Persona 5 Coming to Next-Gen Consoles?

50°
285w ago - Fans of Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei Persona series have been anxiously awaiting a next-gen update to the cult favorite series.

That wait might not be too much longer, to quote:

Today, Atlus told our E3 reporting team that Persona 5 "probably won't be on the PlayStation 2," and will likely be making the jump to the PlayStation 3 and/or Xbox 360.

It's much too soon to talk about release schedules, but just the notion that the game is in development is good enough for me.

The PlayStation 2 versions of the series were highly enjoyable, and if Atlus gives the same love and attention to this next entry, you can be sure they'll have another critical darling on their hands.
 

Last-Gen: The Top 10 SEGA Dreamcast Games Unveiled

250°
293w ago - The SEGA Dreamcast, a system that many would say was way ahead of its time and a system many would argue was taken from us far too young.

Before it was cool to participate in online gaming on a console, Dreamcast had it. Before it was cool to speak to your games, Dreamcast had a microphone.

Because of a grand list of shenanigans on everyone's part, the Dreamcast crumbled due to the unstoppable juggernaut that was the PS2. Love it or hate it, Sega' s last hurrah was an innovative system with its share of great games.

The following is a top ten list to crown the 10 best Dreamcast games of all time:

10. Marvel vs. Capcom 2
9. Skies of Arcadia
8. Power Stone
7. Jet Grind Radio
6. Sonic Adventure
5. Shenmue
4. Sonic Adventure 2
3. Soul Caliber
2. Crazy Taxi
1. Resident Evil: Code Veronica

GDC 2009: Next-Gen XBox Confirmed by Developer

500°
295w ago - Exciting news for gamers - Microsoft is deep in the development process for the successor to the Xbox 360 games console, it's been revealed.

To quote: One of the first credible reports on the topic, Blizzard's Rob Pardo has confirmed that his company has taken part in talks with Microsoft about the next-next-gen console.

That Microsoft will launch another console at sometime in the future isn't exactly rocket science, but this news suggests the company plans to replace its current 4-year-old system soon.

Speaking at a lunch at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Pardo did not provide hardware details - only that Blizzard is "actively in discussions with Microsoft" about the new gaming hardware.

Blizzard is the publisher behind the World of Warcraft games, and Pardo reported that he suggested to Microsoft that the next model should have improved input devices that would allow real-time strategy games (and the like) to be better ported to consoles.
 

Resident Evil 5 for PS3: Next-Gen Graphics, Last-Gen Game Play

500°
300w ago - By now, many of you have played the Resident Evil 5 Demo. It's apparent to most the demo has outstanding graphics; truly next generation graphics (current gen).

It's hard not to think why Capcom would deliver on outstanding graphics, but deliver a horrendous game play. Sure this was acceptable last generation for various reasons. Take a look at what I mean.

When Resident Evil first came out you could not run and shoot at the same time but back then the game play was forgiving because the monsters were slow and you can literally run around them. Just seeing Resident Evil was so amazing that you just wanted to play it and get out of Raccoon city.

Everyone is talking about how Resident Evil is not supposed to be a Run-And-Gun; Capcom is trying to keep it original. If Capcom was truly trying to keep it original, what's up with RE4&5? Why the major change with the camera and why the change of zombies?

If Capcom was trying to keep it original, they never would of change anything. They are trying to bring new people to the series, and by this, they will need a serious overhaul. They succeeded in graphics, unfortunately, only graphics and not game play.

It's 2009 and certain things in game play these days are not as forgivable. What I'm trying to point out is that...
 

New Gaming PCs, Next-gen XBox and PlayStation 4 All Doomed?

100°
303w ago - Rahul Sood - onetime CPC columnist, founder of VoodooPC and now big cheese at HP - has been busy recently, presiding over lots of positive coverage of his most recent project, HP's small-and-sleek gaming PC, the [Register or Login to view links], while also finding time to write a series of lengthy and doom-laden blog posts.

Well, their titles were doom-laden, at any rate: both the gaming PC and games consoles as we know them, are doomed. Both posts are confidently argued, and the reasoning behind both is similar: for Rahul, it's a question of costs vs benefits.

On the gaming PC side of things, the number of people willing to pay thousands and thousands of dollars/pounds for ludicrously powerful gaming machines is getting ever smaller, tempted into causing their own extinction by ever more expensive, power-hungry multi-GPU systems.

On the console side of things, Rahul reasons, it's not the customer but the companies - well, Microsoft and Sony - that can't afford to create any more machines along the lines of the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Their business model is to sell the console itself at a loss, and make a profit on the add-ons, games and licensing agreements.

I certainly think he's right about the PS3; all the sales data points to it...
