A quick summary appears to be:

  • Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for PC
  • CliffyB working on a FPS - Project Bluestreak
  • DayZ/Ion
  • AMD talking about 300-series cards and Project Quantum
  • Star Citizen dev talking about motion capture
  • Davide Braben (Elite) new game Planet Coaster
  • Heart of Thorns expansion for Guild Wars
  • Whispers of Oblivion, a three mission prologue for Starcraft 2
  • Hello Games talking about No Man's Sky for PC

You missed the Hearthstone type card game in the Elder Scrolls lore mate. Elder Scrolls legends I think it was called.

Hmm, wonder how Sony are going to respond to Microsoft bringing backwards compatibility to the Xbox One? I'm a bit disappointed in the Gears remaster I was expecting them to be doing a collection, which i feel would have sold better than just the first game by itself.

How will they respond?

A whole load of games plus Morpheus. :smashin:

I don't think they need to respond to BC directly.

Your looking at it from the wrong angle , a P'S angle and its not for us . this is for 360 gamers that have not bothered yet with current gen and are happy with their 360s and their games. This is designed to get those left to crossover to the xbone and is a pretty good move on MS part to get 360 gamers not to consider a PS4 like a lot have done so far this gen.

But and a big but would be is this a little late to lay on the table as it would of trully been a game changer at launch.

I'm not looking at it from any angle lol. I couldn't give two monkeys about backwards compatibility on either console :).

I was just responding to BluWarfareHD09's comment :)
