Battlefield HardlineBattlefield: Hardline has been delayed and will be released in 2015, while Dragon Age: Inquisition has been pushed back from October 9 to November 21.

DICE Vice President an General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson explained the reasons for Battlefield: Hardline‘s delay in a blog post, citing feedback from the recent beta: “This feedback…spurred us to start thinking about other possibilities and ways we could push Hardline innovation further and make the game even better. The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing. However, there was only one problem. We would need more time. Time that we didn’t have if we decided to move forward with launching in just a couple of months.” Continue reading »

Nintendo E3 Iwata punchAs the final major press conference of the show, Nintendo certainly had some hard acts to follow. Then again, given the increasingly bizarre (yet watchable) videos Nintendo has put out recently, you would think it has got a few things up their sleeves.

Published by Donald on June 10, 2014 Woooo!! Part Twoooo!! Sony’s E3 2014 Press Conference

Sony E3 Tim SchaferTwo years ago, Sony’s press conference was full of Woooo Boys, the kind of people that whooped and hollered at the drop of a microphone, hat or otherwise. It was also a different environment compared to today. Back then, Microsoft had the mild advantage and the PS4 was merely the dreams of fanboys and Sony execs. Back then, the Woooo Boys were a nuisance.

The Woooo Boys were back for this year’s conference, and sure they were still insufferable, but this time they accompanied a cocksure Sony, a company clearly in the lead. Continue reading »

Published by Matt on June 10, 2014 Blood on the Dancefloor: Ubisoft’s E3 2014 Press Conference

UbisoftFrom the opening minutes of Ubisoft’s press conference, we were greeted with a blood drenched, expletive-heavy ceremony from long-time publisher Ubisoft.

Published by Jamie on June 10, 2014 2015 Concept Video: EA’s E3 2014 Press Conference

EA Mirrors EdgeWith not a lot to show but plenty of announcements, EA certainly had one of the more different feeling E3 press conferences in quite a while. While it wasn’t the two hour announcement extravaganza that was Microsoft’s presser, what was shown was notable.

Right from the get go, EA CEO Andrew Wilson explained that the games shown today would be shown in one of two ways. The games EA would be showing in depth (as well as showing near-final footage of) are the games that’ll be released in 2014. For the games 0f 2015 and beyond, they would be shown in dev diary form, complete with incredibly rough tech concepts, prototypes and concept art. Continue reading »
