Final Fantasy 7 Remake Heading To PS4

Posted on June 15, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Square Enix showcased a teaser trailer for the long awaited Final Fantasy 7 remake at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference. The teaser trailer talks about a world falling into ruin and a group of heroes returning. If that makes this title sound like a sequel, it’s not.. the crowd literally erupted in energetic applause that is hard to describe in words. This a game that people have waited almost 20 years to be remade

When the PlayStation 3 was announced in 2005 Square Enix showed off an impressive remake the train sequence from the original game and at the time it looked fantastic.

We know that the FF7 remake will be directed by Tetsuro Nomura and will be released in 2016 but no other details are currently available.

Sony Opens It’s Conference With Proof That The Last Guardian Is Real

Posted on June 15, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Sony took the opportunity to open it’s E3 2015 press conference with a nearly 7 minute demonstration of The Last Guardian. During the gameplay demo we see the giant dog-bird creature in all of its majesty cross platforms and make new areas accessible for the game’s child protagonist. The boy pushed and pull in-game object to try and make his way around the game’s environment – luckily just as trouble started brewing the dog-bird was there ready to save the day.

Earlier this week I posted an editorial about why you shouldn’t care about The Last Guardian but I can’t help but be caught up in the hype.

The Last Guardian will be coming to PlayStation 4 sometime in 2016. Check out the trailer below.

Backwards Compatibility Coming To Xbox One

Posted on June 15, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

Xbox boss Phil Spencer announced this morning that the Xbox One will be able to play select Xbox 360 titles starting this fall.

Backwards compatibility has been a bit of a sore spot this generation, with the exception of the WiiU which offers complete compatibility with previous hardware neither the Xbox One nor PlayStation 4 have offered comprehensive solutions for gamers looking to enjoy some of their favorite classics. Sure Sony offers PlayStation Now but that service costs about $15 USD a month and unless you live in an area with reliable internet it is not a perfect solution.

Starting this Fall Xbox One owners will be able to play select Xbox 360 games via either physical disc or digital downloads. It was mentioned during the conference that over 100 games will be available at launch with more to come in 2016. Not only will Xbox one owners be able to play their favorite single player campaigns but also join friends on Xbox Live for competitive multiplayer and use Xbox One only features like Game DVR and screenshots while playing 360 games.

On stage Microsoft showed off Xbox 360’s Mass Effect running on the Xbox One. Check out a brief video of Xbox One Backwards Compatibility after the jump as well as a partial list of compatible titles.
