EA Announces EA Access for Xbox One - briefly
(hx) 04:03 PM EDT - Jul,29 2014 - Post a comment
EA and Microsoft are partnering up for something called EA Access. This is a new subscription based program that will give Xbox One owners unlimited access to a handful of EA titles for one price. An EA Access subscription unlocks "The Vault", which is a collection of "EA's biggest games on Xbox One." These games include FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4. How much will this run you? $4.99 (USD) per month or you can buy an annual subscription for $29.99.
EA Access is a totally new way for you to play more of the games you love, for less. Here's a rundown of the additional benefits EA Access members will get:

Awesome Value -Besides the great games in The Vault, EA Access members will save 10% on purchases of EA digital content for Xbox One offered through the Xbox Games Store. From full digital-download titles like the upcoming Dragon Age Inquisition or NHL 15, to additional membership services such as Battlefield 4 Premium or even FIFA Ultimate Team points, it’s all 10% off for members.

Play First - Membership in EA Access lets you experience trials of new EA games up to five days before the release date. It starts with Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA LIVE 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition, but more are on the way. If you decide to buy the game, your progress will carry over so you can pick up right where you left off.
Interestingly, EA hasn't revealed any sort of EA Access plan for any other platform, including the PC with Origin.

    - Several fixes to improve NAT type error messages.
    - Fix for PCs with multiple network interfaces.
    - Fixed an issue at the Poker Table in which the button appeared corrupted after being pulled from the surveillance camera when Aiden is dealing the cards.
    - Fixed weapon wheel issue that prevent shotgun selection with mouse.

Despite EA's good will in offering a free copy of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection to everyone, it seems as though the nasty DRM known as SecuROM is included in the install. Reclaim Your Game has discovered the presence of the dreaded copy protection system, SecuROM, after digging through the files for the game. They say that they have found no issues as a result of it being included and also note that it is entirely possible it is simply left over from the original release of the game. However, if you don't want SecuROM on your system no matter what, Reclaim Your Game offers up some instructions on how to fully remove it from your system after uninstalling The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection.

Crytek addresses financial troubles - briefly
(hx) 02:32 PM EDT - Jul,28 2014 - Post a comment
Crytek, whose financial health recently has been the subject of rumors of unpaid workers and the departures of key developers, has issued a statement broadly asserting the company is on solid financial footing following a turbulent change in corporate focus. However, they added that they will begin shifting their focus towards self-published free-to-play games, a move that was foreshadowed by last month's rumored cancellation of four prototypes, including a sequel to Ryse: Son of Rome.

Crytek is currently working on Homefront: The Revolution in conjunction with Deep Silver, as well as free-to-play shooter, Warface. The studio's American branch recently announced Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age at E3.

  • Verizon To Throttle 4G LTE Users With Unlimited Plans - If you have an unlimited plan with Verizon, I've got bad news for you. Verizon Wireless plans to use its Network Optimization policy later this year in order to manage its heaviest users. The change in policy applies only to subscribers with an unlimited LTE monthly data plan, who were previously grandfathered in and essentially unrestricted in their use of mobile data. According to Verizon this change only applies to the top 5% of users, who typically consume more than 4.7GB of data per month. Rather than use straight throttling, Verizon will prioritize the traffic of subscribers who pay for tiered data plans (2GB per month, 4GB per month, etc.) The prioritization scheme will be put to work in high-traffic areas when cell sites become congested. The change goes into effect October 1. Verizon has applied similar network management techniques to its 3G customers since 2011.
