The extensive console exclusivity period Microsoft enjoyed with Minecaft on Xbox 360 is coming to a close, as the first-person world-building game digs in on PlayStation 3 tomorrow. Like its 360 brethren, Minecraft on PS3 is limited by the console’s minuscule RAM — the procedurally-generated worlds you’ll explore are just a wee bit smaller than what’s possible on a computer.
Of course, PlayStation 3 isn’t the last stop for the Minecraft train: Vita, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions are all expected at some point in 2014. It’s unclear whether the PlayStation version of Minecraft will experience the same flood of add-on, PlayStation-specific content as DLC post-launch, but developer Mojang says that, “would be cool!” We can’t help but agree. As far as price is concerned, Mojang and Sony aren’t saying; we’re gonna take a wild guess that it’ll be about the same as on 360, where it’s $20.
Thanks to Engadget.com for this awesome insight.
Square Enix has confirmed that its well into development and currently working on a Tomb Raider sequel for the next generation of consoles.
In an open letter, the company’s Western CEO Phil Rogers confirmed that a sequel has been in development for some time.
“I am also excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel – something you may have heard about recently,”
It was also said that a sequel was pretty much guaranteed considering the game’s success. It also confirmed at Comic-Con this year that Dark Horse comics were producing a series set after the conclusion of the first game and designed to lead into the eventual follow-up.
Still, it’s good to know for certain that the game is in development, that it’s making good progress, and that it’ll be on next-gen consoles everywhere. Be sure to let us know what you’d like to see in a sequel in the comments.
Naughty Dog says The Last of Us DLC Announcement is here and will be revealed in August.
Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann & game director Bruce Straley did Reddit AMA to answer questions regarding The Last of Us and the future.
Fans asked the team about the first upcoming single player DLC, ending and the next game.
When asked about the DLC for The Last Of Us, Neil Druckmann replied:
“News is on the way about the first DLC drop. Should hear about it this month.”
Probably the announcement will be at PAX in August.
Also asked whether there will be more story content from the universe that Ellie and Joel live in centering around the two characters, to that he said:
“It’s possible. We’re playing with some ideas, but no direction has been set yet for the next game.”
In the end, Ben Atkins asks a question which is on everyone’s mind, He
asked … “Was the ending of The Last Of Us controversial?”, to that Druckmann replied:
“Initially, yeah [it was controversial]. [The] ending we ultimately went with didn’t sit well with some members of the team. Once it was more fleshed out, it became an easier sell.
We went through about 3 or 4 ideas before finding the ending that worked best for the story we wanted to tell.”
Naughty Dog will release three DLC packs for game, including two multiplayer pack and one single player.
