Amazon Fire TV: It's not a Gaming Console

117d ago ... Wanted to put this out there since I'm seeing more than a few submissions that seem to label Amazon's latest streaming device as a gaming console. Now, while the device does allow one to play games, it is not what we would categorize as a gaming console. Its primary goal, much like a PC, a smart phone, or a tablet, is not to play games. Sure, you can game on it, but that's not enough to be...

Final Fantasy VII Remake, Turn-Based, Action or Both?

154d ago ... Final Fantasy VII Remake have probability to retain is original Turn-Based gameplay and be similar to Final Fantasy IV (3D remake) & Bravely Default. That could bring Square Enix lots of profits, since they could port it to many platform such as 3DS, Vita, PS4. Not to forget Android & IOS. Final Fantasy IV (3D remake) is available on Android & IOS and have been selling very well. Some wou...

Candy Crush Crushing Your Android

315d ago ... We've been getting some complaints that while users are browsing on their mobiles the play store opens and prompts them for a download of Candy Crush Saga. We took this problem to our advertising partner because we thought it likely there was a problem with one of the ads being run on N4G. The conclusion is that this is not a problem caused by N4G, NewsBoiler or the ads currently running...

In-flight Entertainment Gets Its Game On

334d ago ... The quality of games available in-flight has traditionally been extremely limited. In a market dominated by early-release Hollywood films and the latest TV shows, in-flight gaming has so far failed to take off. Until now. Games specialist GUE Tech, and in-flight entertainment provider IFE Services, are responding to the estimated $76bn industry by pioneering in-flight gaming on commercial fl...

Are next-gen systems going to give shift to a more demanding PC gaming or mobile gaming market?

351d ago ... With next-generation systems like Xbox one and PS4 around the corner questions are arising in every form and manner. As a neutral fan boy myself who plays on all platforms I can’t help to think about how much more affordable and graphically efficient Pc’s will be then consoles in just over 3 years not that they aren't already. I also know that in the end it really comes down to software of choi...

Thoughts on the Next-Gen and the Industry (Technical article from a Soft Developer)

512d ago ... The "next-gen" is coming, in fact it is "technically" already here with the WiiU. After going through countless of posts in N4G and other sites, reading so many comments I decided to write quick blog post as objective as possible. First my general background: I am currently working as a Software Developer with specialisation into data encryption algorithms, mainly Java and pseudo-parallel pr...

XBL on iOS: Christmas Gift or Sour Eggnog?

582d ago ... Xbox live is a decent service, some would say it’s the best, some wouldn’t but, fees aside, it’s pretty good for gamers. Having access to XBL was one of, if not the ONLY reason to buy a Windows 8 phone/tablet over Android or iOS, that I can think of right now. So it comes as a shock that MS has decided to share the love with other platforms. One could argue that this move will be a boost for...

Where is the GTA 3 HD Collection Rockstar?

637d ago ... HD Collections and games being HD'ed have become a big thing at the end of this cycle. Game companies seem to be trying to capitalise on a little to no work ratio, where they can appease a number of fans. Which as a fan, like me, would gladly pay. Right this second I am eagerly awaiting the release of Okami HD on PSN. I longed to play that game at launch on PS2 but due to similar circumstanc...

Sony's Ad Patent

793d ago ... A patent by Sony (seen here: http://www.google.com/patents?id=lDb9AQAAEBAJ&pg=PA1&dq=sony+entertainment&hl=en&sa=X&ei=mLS-T8TGIqqI6AHM__GqCg&ved=0CEYQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=sony%20entertainment&f=false ) has been found that shows that gameplay could be interrupted for an ad. Now on the face of it this idea sounds incredibly annoying. However, I am going to show that this feature is not only...

Is the rise of smartphone and tablet gaming actually good for console gaming?

1087d ago ... I have been thinking slightly differently to most of the doom and gloomers out there. While most are thinking that I-phone/pad and android gaming will spell the end of console gaming, I think the reality is very different. The way I see it is that they will actually help console and PC gaming. How? By getting rid of all the devs and publishers who are only interested in making a quick buck o...

I was right! NGP-PSP2

1277d ago ... This is a blog purely showing off I was right on quite a lot of the points I made with my blog on the PSP2's supposed features. http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/raendom/516210 I said it could possibly include Android, I said it wouldn't use TEGRA, I said it would focus on the hardcore market, I said it'd have console-esque power, I said they'd be going with their own Android-Store; I pretty m...
