Electronic Arts is working on its very in-game help assistant. The system doesn’t sound as sophisticated as Sony’s PlayStation AI Assistant but it should do the trick. We have been following these stories for a few weeks now, ever since we first reported on PlayStation Assistant. Sony is working on an AI system for in-game help and now it looks like EA is interested in something similar as well.  The company filed a new patent on November 28, 2019, at the United States Patent and Trademarks Office for an “Adaptive Gaming Tutorial System.” EA’s system, which is presumably a launch feature for next-generation consoles, will provide contextual in-game help to the players. Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a tutorial system that can aid a user in performing various game commands in response to different game states in a virtual game environment. As the user plays the game, various game…

Xbox Scarlett is the next-generation console that Microsoft is working on. When Xbox One came out it was supposed to support VR and the same was the case with Xbox One X but that never happened. Phil Spencer has now confirmed that Xbox Scarlett will not support VR as there is little demand for it. It made sense for the PS4 because so many units were already sold and all people had to do was get an additional headset which was not very expensive compared to other VR headsets on the market. Here is what Phil Spencer had to say regarding Xbox Scarlett not getting VR support: I have some issues with VR — it’s isolating and I think of games as a communal, kind of together experience. We’re responding to what our customers are asking for and… nobody’s asking for VR. The vast majority of our customers know if…

In recent weeks we found out publishers are pushing their games further into 2020. One of the leading publishers to delays a number of games are Ubisoft. The company delays a handful of games from 2019 to 2020, and early 2020 to mid-to-late 2022. Moreover, it’s a bit curious how publishers aren’t talking at all about their upcoming, in development projects. One theory is that publishers are holding back their games in preparation for Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5. It makes sense as we are at the end of the console cycle, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are at the end of their road. This theory appears to be popular among all Xbox Insiders who shared their views in the latest issue of Xbox Magazine. Xbox’s Chris Burke fears we’ll see more delays next Spring. These delays I fear are something we’ll see more of next spring, because I find…

X019 London showed off plenty of new games and we also got updates regarding titles that have already been announced. We got to see plenty of cool trailers during X019 and we have now got an idea regarding what the next generation of console especially Xbox Scarlett is going to offer. We know that the Xbox Scarlett is going to be able to deliver up to 4K image quality and up to 120 FPS. That is some serious performance. X019 Insights You Might Have Missed The following are some of the games that we got to see that gave us an insight regarding the performance of the Xbox Scarlett: Everwild This is a new IP from Rare and it is a very beautiful one. While there is not much that we know about the game right now, the trailer was shown off at X019 and it gives us an idea…

One of the very first games confirmed for PS5 is Bluepoint Games’ unannounced title. There are multiple reports and speculations about what this game is, from it being a Demon’s Soul Remastered to a brand new IP, a lot is being said. And while we can’t confirm what this game is, the information we have today at least confirms that it is probably not a PS5 exclusive title. Hence, it will possibly release on Xbox Scarlett as well. There are multiple job listings on the official Bluepoint Games website that suggest Xbox Scarlett will get the remastered game as well, if, they are talking about the same game that is. According to the job listings, Bluepoint Games is working on a remastered title for the “most advanced home consoles.” The person for the job will be responsible for integrating “next-gen material techniques,” and creating “high-quality next-generation effects models inspired by…

Microsoft’s next-generation gaming console, Xbox Scarlett, is releasing during the Holiday Season of 2020. With its release, we will step into a new era of video game development. The sheer power under the hood and architecture used to create Xbox Scarlett means developers can do so much more with future titles. Speaking with Xbox Magazine, Marketing Head Aaron Greenberg stressed on what developers can do. For one thing, with next-generation games, developers can create “bigger worlds.” You give all that (CPU. SSD, GPU), and more memory, and more power and everything to developers and they create bigger worlds. They can use all of those technical capabilities to come up with things that we haven’t even thought of. So that’s always exciting too, what people do with the tech and how they think about maximizing that. SO that’s the part we’ll have to wait and find out!” Greenberg confirmed that Microsoft…

Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg is happy with what they have achieved with Xbox One X. And the same team that created the “most powerful console” is now working on Xbox Scarlett. With Xbox One X we saw great GPU gains, hardware was able to output 4K but often games were bottlenecked by the limited CPU power under the hood. Things will work differently with Xbox Scarlett, according to Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg during his interview with Xbox Magazine. I think for a lot of gamers, they want a really powerful console. They want a high-end system that delivers the best performance available. We feel really good about what we’ve done with the Xbox One X, and the same team that built that is off building Project Scarlett. What Microsoft did with Xbox One X’s is push 6 teraflops (TFLOPS), 40 customized compute units @ 1,172MHz. But the console’s 2.3GHz x86 AMD…

Avalanche Studios is known for its open-world games and most notably for its Just Cause Franchise. The studio has posted a job listing, hinting that Avalanche New York is working on Just Cause 5 with seamless multiplayer. According to the listing, Avalanche New York is looking for a “Build Engineer” to build and manage “a large and complex code base for diverse platforms as well as enormous amounts of data. The efficiency of the processes involved in doing so can be the differencing factor between a blockbuster success and a failure.” The job listing doesn’t reveal the game for which the studio is hiring for. But given that, Just Cause is the studio’s most popular franchise, what better way to welcome the next-generation of consoles than releasing Just Cause 5, that’ll probably melt those consoles with its physics systems. Our New York Studio is currently working on an undisclosed project…

With Nvidia introducing real-time Ray Tracing with its RTX GPUs, more and more devs are including this feature to the PC version of their games. This eventually led to Sony and Microsoft confirming real-time ray tracing support for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett. However, next-gen consoles have a very different implementation of it. This is according to a Gizmodo insider, who recently reported a leak regarding next-gen consoles. Reportedly, both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett feature different techniques to implement real-time ray tracing. It seems like the source did reveal what techniques will be used but Gizmodo refrained from sharing them. Both PS5 and Xbox Scarlett will use AMD Navi based GPUs. Considering that, it’s understandable that next-gen consoles will use different techniques to implement ray tracing compared to Nvidia RTX GPUs. However, that isn’t the only thing the report has revealed. Reportedly, PS5 and Xbox Scarlett will see the…

A remaster or enhanced version of Red Dead Redemption 2 or the original game has been rumored for the Xbox Scarlett and PS5. It seems that Rockstar knows that people are excited about it and the developers have started teasing what the future holds for the franchise. Rockstar has in no way confirmed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be coming to Xbox Scarlett but in Rockstar fashion, it has been teased. We know that Red Dead Redemption 2 is going to be playable on Xbox Scarlett one way or another due to backward compatibility. But we do not know if it will take advantage of the new hardware. Rob Nelson, co-studio head at Rockstar North, was asked how long the servers of the online game would be up and what would happen when Xbox Scarlett takes over. The following is what he had to say regarding the matter: We…
