Battlefield 4 release October 29th for both generation game consoles

Dice announced Tuesday May 21st, that the next generation of Battlefield 4 will be sold for multiple game consoles this coming fall season. Battlefield 4 will be available for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 users as well as X Box 360 and X box One. I think we can all agree this was a smart move and will certainly help us all out during the next generation console transitions.

Expect to see Battlefield 4 available in stores October 29th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In addition Dice will unveil Battlefield 4 at E3 this year and allow all attendees an opportunity to play the game first hand.

Dust 514 official launch 5-14-2013

Its been one of the longest beta testing sessions I think PlayStation 3 users have ever been involved in, but after a year and a half since the testing servers went live, Dust 514 has now officially launched the full version of the game. If you don’t have it, head over to the PlayStation store and download Dust 514 for free. 

For those of us that have been actively beta testing the game for a while now, the improvements made on the recent patch Uprising really pulled the game play and visual experience up to a balanced level. We saw major improvements in weapons adjustment in the range of fire on the sniper riffles, laser riffles, and rail guns. Some classes lost such as the heavy class, lost a little bit of power in order to balance the game out as a whole. The skill assessment was completely reorganized to make it easier to understand how and what items to purchase for upgrading. For a full list of the improvements from the uprising patch check out the Dust 514 forum.

Dust 514 has definitely one of the largest communities of female gamers online. On that note, I'll give a big shout out to the developers at CCP for adding the ladies mercenary suit. Its really one of the best no nonsense charter skins I have seen. They have done an incredible job at allowing the ladies to blend in while in battle eliminating any opportunity for being singled out.
If you are new the game the best way to get started is to do a little reading on the forum to get a basic grasp of the game or head over the public chat channel and look for corporations that are recruiting. Finding the right corporation with skilled players willing to help get you oriented to the game will help you better understand your drop suit, how to fit it, and upgrade weapons. The launch of Dust 514 will open up planetary battles allowing faction warfare but before you can head out into raiding or defending planets it’s a good idea to have a decent leveled up suit with some fire power behind it. Your corporation SEO should be able to lend you a hand getting you set up if not you might want to join up with another group.

Call of Duty Ghost next new game by Infinity Ward

How can the most popular first person shooter game online, Call of Duty get any better than it is?  On May 21st Infinity Ward, developers of the game series, announce the release of the public sneak peek of the new Call of Duty Ghost.  

Call of Duty Ghost will be built on the next generation game engine developed by Infinity Ward that promises to bring in new worlds, maps, game-play experiences and character development. Expect to see the official game trailer launch beginning May 21st and check out the website at Activison to get your first look at COD Ghost.

The game will be published by Activison who has done a tremendous job at marketing and supporting the Call of Dusty series. Let’s hope when the game launch of Call of Duty Ghost launches on November 5th, we will have a finished version of the game that actually works the way we are expecting it. Many game publishers including EA and Activision have been criticized in the past for pushing games to the market before they are finished and ask for a high price for an uncompleted product. There has been negative backlash from Call of Duty Black Ops series due to the games themselves not functioning properly and servers performing poorly, lets hope that Call of Duty Ghost gets it right.

Call of Duty Ghost will be launching in November just after Dice’s Battlefield 4 launches on October 25th. While this is no coincidence, the two game franchises Battlefield 4 published by EA and Call of Duty pushed by Activision are no doubt competing for the dominant market share in online FPS games. However I would hardly crown Call of Duty just yet. John Gaudiosi from Forbes, stated in his article on May 1st that, “The Call of Duty franchise does not have any real close competition.”  I think John needs a little help in getting his facts straight. Battlefield 3 earned 1.3 Billion in revenue and sold over 10 million copies while its contender Call of Duty Black Ops 2 earned a high of 1 billion in total sales. The signal clearly reads a drop in revenue for Call of Duty Franchise and a signal to market the next generation online FPS in order to contend for the crown.
