CVG learns two new versions of the Xbox 360 controller are doing the developer rounds
Speaking this afternoon to CVG, Konami's PES producer Shingo 'Seabass' Takatsuka has revealed he's currently in possession of two new Xbox 360 controllers and is playing around with them at the PES HQ.
Microsoft sent Seabass the two controllers to allow him to test re-mapped button configurations for PES, the best footy game in town, presumably to make the game as playable on an Xbox 360 pad as it is on the PS2.
It's no secret that the best pad to play Pro Evolution Soccer on is Sony's classic Dual Shock.
This also ties in nicely to previous reports that Microsoft has a unique FPS pad in testing for Xbox 360 too.
Normally, the end of the year is a slow time for game releases. Everyone who’s anyone has already launched during the holiday season, and the stragglers don’t seem to get much attention. Then again, all those folks that picked up new consoles for Christmas need something to play, so maybe there’s some cleverness in a last-week release.
Who knows? Either way, these games are coming out just before the clock rolls over to 2013.
Gameinformer writes: "The survival-horror genre has been through a lot over the years. Like a would-be victim of a crazed murderer, the genre has experience some life-changing events and barely managed to survive. From Resident Evil's shift towards action to Silent Hill's descent into mediocrity, the genre has had trouble recently with being, well... horrifying."
"It's no secret that Hamsterfist loves Zombies. Zombie movies, zombie books and zombie games, I can't get enough. But how much is too much of a good thing? Well if the product is good, there is no such thing as too much. However there is gluttony of Zombie games heading towards the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and I doubt very much all will be good. Here is a small sample of upcoming zombie games, divided in two different groups. Those that might not be good or even end up getting made and those that are going to be blockbusters or have at least some excitement behind them."
