    The 31st Golden Joystick Awards have opened up ballots. Are you ready to vote for your favorite games of the year?:

    This year the categories have been moved around to incorporate 15 different awards ranging from Best Online Game to Best Newcomer. Of course, every developer is after the coveted Game of the Year trophy, though. 18 games have made the final list of GOTY contenders ranging in genre and style.

    Due to the awards being given out on October 26th (live on YouTube), only games released between August 25th, 2012 and September 2013 are included. While that means Grand Theft Auto 5 gets a spot, Call of Duty: Ghosts and several other of this year’s holiday blockbusters don’t.

    The Xbox-ONE controller it's over the CPU.

    I had to post this. It’s PAX they showed some BF4 gameplay and guess what? everything got messed up. They were using a PC with a Xbox ONE controller and in one time the game Crashed….showing Windows 8 screen.

    To quote:

    Not surprising news, DICE and Microsoft promised the players to test their Xbox One games on actual Xbox One platform at PAX Prime but again after E3′ s disappointment the players surprised at PAX that they are playing battlefield 4 on PC with the E3 build of the game.

    BlindSpider11 has wrote his “review” at Reddit:

    -Running on PC’s with Xbox One controllers.

    -Seems to be the E3 build. Battlefield 3 style death animation, “Battlefield 4 at E3″ banner upon death, etc.

    -Resolution was set to 1920X1080

    And the funny thing, The game was crashed during playing and exit to a windows 8 desktop, And when you died it showed the BF4 @ E3 ad. So it’s the E3 PC demo with an Xbone controller hooked up.

    This screens explain some points by “NeoGaf“:

    Game Crashed. Windows 8 in the background.

    Here’s what Paul Show has done to his PS3. His website is currently down, but below is the summary of his project by hackaday.com.

    Here’s the scenario: You’ve got the rage to play som CoD (we’re more GTA fans but whatever) but the monitor you’re going to play on has no speakers. You can get a crystal clear image using HDMI, but getting sound is a different matter. What’s the fix? Crack open your PS3 and solder on some audio connectors.

    [Paul] knew there is a special cable that breaks out analog audio. Like original Xbox hacking of ages past, there is now plenty of information online about the internals of these machines. He grabbed a copy of the A/V pinout and found the analog audio pins. After soldering on this pair of RCA cables he cut savaged a hole in the case and put the console back together. The machine he’s working with is a salvaged unit with no Blu-ray drive — he links to his past posts on the repair process. You may be thinking what good is it without an optical drive? Remember, this is the beginning of the Internet age… everything is downloadable.

    Way to start EA with Madden 25 anniversary edition. Users are experiencing some random freezing when they try to play online. EA states that maybe has some connection with a recent title update but the majority of this freezing issues is when the game try to connect to EA servers…(lol).
    They are currently working on a fix, that will be released “as soon as possible” (hope not 2 months from here).

    Meanwhile you can insult or praise them if you want over their twitter account or their official board.

    EA is working on a fix to resolve the freezing issues experienced by some Madden NFL 25 players.

    Multiple players have reported problems with the game persistently locking up over on EA’s official forums, with some suggesting that the issue may lie with a recent title update.

    According to their reports, the majority of lock-ups appear to occur when the game attempts to connect to EA’s servers, but users are also reporting issues when attempting to play a match in any one of the game’s modes.

    Both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game appear to be affected.

    “We are aware that some players are experiencing intermittent freezing issues while playing Madden NFL 25,” read an update on EA’s help centre in response to the reports.

    “Our team is investigating the cause and is working on a resolution so that we can get everyone back into the game. Thank you for your patience, and for supporting EA Sports!”

    EA’s twitter account added that it hopes to resolve the issue “as soon as possible”.

    Madden 25 launched on Tuesday in North America and is due to release tomorrow in the UK. An Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version is also expected to be available in November.

    Deep Silver has announced a release date for Metro: Last Light‘s Tower Pack DLC.

    Priced at $4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99, it’s due for release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 3 (September 4 on PS3 outside of America). An official description of the challenge based game mode follows the screenshots:

     

    Players have to fight their way up through a heavily guarded tower, a virtual combat simulator. Each level is increasingly difficult - packed with hordes of enemies, mutants and other deadly threats. The best players in this combat simulator will need to master Metro’s unique, hand-made weaponry and deep combat mechanics in order to reach the top of the global leaderboards.

    Tower Pack is the second of four planned Metro Last Light DLC packs, which can be pre-purchased at a discounted rate as part of the Metro: Last Light season pass. Details on the final two DLC packs follow:

    • The ‘Developer Pack’ boasts a fully stocked Shooting Gallery, the AI Arena and Metro Museum… And a bonus solo mission - The Spiders’ Nest - offers some new tools for dealing with an infestation of the skittering Spider mutants
    • Lastly the ‘Chronicles Pack’ will feature three original single player missions that cast the player as four of the game’s standout characters - Pavel, Khan & Ulman, and Anna - and explore their side-stories away from Artyom’s adventure

    In our Metro: Last Light review we said 4A’s sequel is “gruelling, but worth the effort” and “a refreshing change from more traditional first-person shooters”.

    Nice initiative ;) . Now you can pay if you live in the US or UK with your mobile.

    What is BOKU?:

    BOKU carrier-billing (charge to mobile phone bill) provides a secure and easy-to-use payment method. Carrier-billing enables unbanked[4] consumers who may have a mobile phone, but no credit card or traditional bank account, to make purchases online.
    The majority of transactions processed through BOKU carrier-billing are for digital and virtual goods and services, including social and free-to-play games, virtual goods, social networks and other online experiences. BOKU focuses on making the mobile phone number a viable payment option not only for virtual goods, but for digital goods (i.e. MP3′s, eBooks, movies, etc.) and physical goods.

     To quote:

    Sony has just added a carrier billing option for PlayStation Store purchases on its PS3 console through a partnership with Boku.

    PS3 owners will now be able to add money to their Sony Entertainment Network accounts for purchasing games, add-ons, themes, movies, TV shows, and Sony Music Unlimited subscriptions. Sony and Boku added support for mobile top-ups for the PlayStation in the UK in July.

    To utilize carrier billing, US customers select the “mobile” payment option on either the PS3′s PlayStation Store or the Sony Entertainment Network website. After inputting their mobile number, customers will receive a text message requesting confirmation for the charge.

    A High price and 15-month gap between Xbox 360 to blame, Say’s Sony UK MD.

     

    PlayStation 3 “didn’t do quite as well as it should have” in the UK, Fergal Gara has told VideoGamer.com, explaining that the high price and 15-month gap between the launch of PS3 and Xbox 360 may have impacted the console’s chances of success.

    Asked during Gamescom whether he thought Sony could reclaim market share in the UK with the arrival of PlayStation 4, Gara said, “If it was all about day one then the answer would probably be yes.

    “The truth is it’s a long game. Let’s not forget that PS3 launched a long time after Xbox 360 and didn’t do quite as well as it should have done. But from being so far behind on timing and on pricing it’s delivered quite respectably despite all of that.”

    PS3 launched in the UK on March 23, 2007 for £425, four months after its initial Japanese launch and fifteen months after the Xbox 360 arrived in the UK.

    PlayStation 3 hardware and software has been consistently outsold by the Xbox 360 equivalent in the UK. However, it was reported by MCV earlier this month that PS3 hardware had been outselling Xbox 360 over the course of the summer – largely down to the launch of The Last of Us.

    Nevertheless, Gara seems confident that PS4 will go some way to boosting Sony’s slice of the UK market.

    “We’re very conscious that it’s a long game,” he continues, “we’re very satisfied that we’re doing very, very well right now, but we’re also not getting carried away with ourselves, not getting in any way over-excited. It is a several year project. It doesn’t start and finish on November 29. That’s an important date but it is the start date.”

    PlayStation 4 launches in the UK on November 29. The console has already reached over 1 million pre-orders.

    Nintendo has abolished hinges and autostereoscopic 3D displays to create a new handheld console called the 2DS.

    Keen to kick smartphones and tablets off the mobile gaming throne, Ninty has revealed a portable games device that doesn’t sport a clamshell casing and looks a bit like a fondleslab.

     It does feature all the usual DS controls, including a stylus, and, bizarrely perhaps, two separate displays: one 3.5 inches, the other 3.0 inches, as per the original 3DS.

    It is, said Nintendo, a “handheld portal to a world of amazing games and features”. You can say that of any Android or iOS device, of course, and (just about) Windows ones too.

    Conveniently for buyers and sellers of kid-friendly games software, the 2DS runs 3DS and DS titles, of which there are a good 2,000. Well “almost all” of them, according to Nintendo – it’s the ones that require accessories that plug into the Game Boy Advance slots on the previous DS machines’ that won’t run on the new device.

    The 2DS will come in two colour schemes: black-and-blue and red-and-white. Both come with a 4GB SD card. The console is set to go on sale on 12 October. No word yet on UK pricing, but it’ll be $130 in the US, so expect to pay around £100 here. You can pick up the clamshell DSi – conveniently stow in nippers’ luggage – for little more than that.

    Still, it’s cheaper than an iPad or iPhone, so expect Nintendo to shift a fair few this Christmas. But will it reverse the decline of the dedicated mobile games console? Undoubtedly not.

    To quote:

    No big changes, the average user needless to upgrade. Alter some one. Triangle break mode support to CFW 4.46, DEX 4.46 not supported, has little significance.
