Rumor: God Of War 4 Coming?

Oh I really hope this is for God of War 4!

Posted on the Playstation facebook page, the image above teases a reveal on April 19, by the looks of the image and the popular consensus about the image is it could be a reveal for a new God of War.

The colours of the picture do strike a resemblance to those used for previous God of War ad campaigns and vengeance is Kratos’ thing, so it seems like a pretty safe bet right? I hope so.

Rumor: iPhone 5 To Launch in October?

According to a report on MacRumors, the iPhone 5 may be released this October. The report states that a newspaper, Maeil Business Newspaper, contacted the Apple supplier Foxconn and was told by the HR manager that Apple has just placed an order for an October launch.

“According to a recently published article, the paper asked the head of human resources at Foxconn’s Taiyuan factory about the iPhone 5 release date. The human resources head apparently told the paper, “We just got the order. It [the release] will be around October.”

Take this with a grain of salt as there is rumors everywhere as to the launch of the next iPhone. Don’t believe anything until you have an iPhone 5 in your hand.

Rumor: Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Info Leak?

The internet is a wonderful thing for rumors, they can take hold without even a shred of truth to them. This seems to be one such rumor, said to be “found” on the internet, this information seems just legit enough to hold some water. We know that Activision is going to push out another Call of Duty this year, they always do, so lets look at the info that has supposedly been leaked.

Game Modes

  • – Escort
  • – Will be a new game mode
  • – Similar to Search and Destroy however a live player must be escorted to one of three areas (or two depending on the map) without being killed.
  • – The match will have rounds, consisting of one life only.
  • – Drop Zone and Kill Confirmed will return
  • – Team Defender and Infected will not return

Read the rest after the break.

Rumor: Playstation 4 Details Emerge?

PS4?

According to a post on Kotaku, an inside source claims to have information on the next Playstation, apparently codenamed Orbis, the next-gen console is said to be releasing in 2013. According to the source the console will run on an AMD x64 CPU and an AMD Southern Islands GPU.

Another big feature rumored is that the console will not be backwards compatible with the Playstation 3, nor will it support used games, having games registered to a PSN account and therefore not being able to trade in or sell at a later date as they no longer work on someone elses console.

Interesting rumors I must say, though I’m not sure about the used games thing, doesn’t seem like something that would go down to well with retail games companies.

Army of Four Coming??

It seems as though Twitter has outted yet another game accidently. Actor Joe Flanigan, as some may remember as Shepherd from Stargate Atlantis posted the following on his Twitter account earlier today.

“Just signed on to do the new AO4 video game for Electronic Arts. Some splinter from Battlefield.  Finally, my kids think I am cool again”

Now we know that Army of Two is completely different to Battlefield and it would seem Joe realised that after making his Tweet stating:

“Actually, showing how distinctively uncool I am, I think I have those games mixed up.  Thankgod my kids don’t read twitter”

Take it as you will, but with GDC just around the corner I wouldn’t be surprised if this game pops up.

Valve to launch console/PC codenamed “Steambox”

Rumors have been circulating that Valve, developers of the Half-Life series as i’m sure you are already aware, are currently developing a gaming platform of their own codenamed “Steambox”.

Now as far fetched as this may seem, it might not be such a bad idea, Alienware has already come out with its X51 console sized PC and with Valve’s access to the library of games available on Steam, the platform could very well be a success.

Why not just use a PC with Steam installed you might ask? Well that is not a bad question, well I personally think that the Steambox, if real, is a shot at taking some of the console community and using them to reinvigorate the ailing PC gaming community. A PC in the shape and size of a console, with console controls running high end PC games and having PC upgradeability? Doesn’t sound half bad to me.

With GDC just around the corner, I guess only time will tell on this one.
