Nintendo rejected Skylanders exclusivity

Nintendo rejected Skylanders exclusivity

Before the Skylanders series became a sales juggernaut for Activision, the publisher was looking into a partner. Given the kid-friendly nature of the game, they initially went to Nintendo, which could have made the toy-game hybrid a Nintendo-exclusive. Of course, that didn't work out.

PlayStation 4 adds game pre-loading with 1.70 update

The upcoming 1.70 update for PlayStation 4 adds a crucial feature that PC gamers have had for a long time: the ability to pre-load. As with Steam, once a digital game is pre-ordered via the PlayStation Store, it will start to download onto the console. That doesn’t mean you’ll be able to play the game right away. Instead, you’ll be able to play it once the game is “unlocked” on release day.

Video editing app for PS4 revealed: Share Factory

PS4 firmware update 1.70 is coming soon. And, as promised, one of the big new features it introduces is SHAREfactory (henceforth referred to as “Share Factory” like normal people), a video editing app. Right now, video editing is bare-bones, letting you simply trim off the beginning and end of clips. However, Share Factory will let you combine clips while adding filters, transitions, text, and stickers. You can even add audio and video commentary, and go picture-and-picture with the PlayStation Camera as well.

Shacknews recently had an opportunity to try out some of WildStar's massive 40v40 Warplot matches, but unless you see the chaos for yourself, it can be hard to grasp the full scope of this PvP mode. Carbine Studios is looking to help spread more information about Warplots with a brand new trailer that helpfully explains the game mode as, "Your favorite food... wrapped in a six-pack of beer... wrapped inside another six-pack of beer." Well-said, indeed.
