The Witcher 3 Probably Won't be 1080p on Consoles - interview
(hx) 04:25 PM EDT - Aug,21 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
In an interview with CD Projekt RED's Visual Effect Artist, Jose Teixeira, it was revealed that the console versions of The Witcher 3 probably won't hit that coveted 1080p mark.
Ideally, we're pushing for 30 frames per second. The resolution, honestly, it depends; we're working on it, we're trying to get it as high as possible. If we can make it at 1080P, sure, but I don't know if it's going to make it. To be honest, I really don't know. Probably not. But for sure, we need it to run at a smooth frame rate, so at least 30 FPS.

We're doing optimization right now and I have to say, it's actually running quite well. To be honest, we were expecting a lot worse. When we first started playing on PS4 and XB1, we expected the game not to work at all, because it was so heavy, so we were expeciting it to crash, but it's actually running. It's not quite there yet, but it's running. So I think that with a little more optimization, I think we'll get it running really well.

Nine new tracks have been added, consisting of single player tracks, along with one Supercross track, one Skill Game, and one FMX track.

500GB Xbox 360 hard drive coming soon - console
(hx) 06:04 PM EDT - Aug,20 2014 - Post a comment
Microsoft has revealed a new accessory for the Xbox 360 -- the 500GB Hard Drive. Yep, that's 360, not "One," as the prior generation is getting the upgrade here. It'll cost $110 for the privilege, although no release date outside of "soon" was given. I don't know how many of you are still aiming to upgrade your 360, but you might be able to sell your old HDD and nab this one on the cheap at some point.
TOXIKK Will Let You Host Matches For Free - briefly
(hx) 03:22 PM EDT - Aug,20 2014 - Post a comment / read (3)
Reakktor Studios has announced that all those who purchase its upcoming PC exclusive classic arena FPS, TOXIKK, will be able to host matches via the game's Clan Admin Privileges. Originally, this feature was planned as a purchasable extra feature but after a backlash from the community, the team decided to offer it for free to everyone who owns the game.
Sticking to our "NO BULLSHIT" policy, Clan Admin Privileges (CAP) are no longer planned as a purchasable extra feature.

Instead, the CAP feature package (being able to host dedicated server(s), host online and LAN-games, and access to the game's Clan Admin Tools) will be available to everyone, with EVERY copy of Toxikk purchased!

The whole CAP package comes at no additional cost for pre-order customers (i.e. the price will stay at $15 per every individually purchased Steam key). Also, all other pre-order packages will remain at their established price.

Once the game is made available via Steam, we will raise the price per purchased copy (i.e. per Steam Key) to something around $20, but for every customer who pre-orders before that date through our store, the original price of $15 per key remains.
TOXIKK is exclusively designed for PC and scheduled to launch via Early Access in Q4/2014.
