Pinball FX2 for Xbox One delayed until August, to add support for table-transfers from Xbox 360

rsz_2pinballfx2

Zen Studios has announced that Pinball FX2 for Xbox One will be delayed from 31 July until “sometime in August” – specifically so that the Xbox One version can have support added for table-transfers from the Xbox 360 version.

Writing on its blog, Zen Studios said:

“Microsoft and Zen Studios have taken your feedback to heart, and seeing that many of you were very upset with the news that table transfers between Xbox 360 and Xbox One would not be happening, we have some good news for you! We will be able to implement table transfers on Xbox One starting from Pinball FX2’s launch. Any available table on Xbox One that was previously purchased for Xbox 360 can be imported to the new version free of charge.”

It's pretty bullshit. Won't affect me personally as I never invested on 360 but those who did really need to be compensated or have the issue fixed.

It's a bummer , an upgrade option would have been something that would have been a good trade off. Why anyone would want to play this pinball game I don't know . The Pinball Arcade is so much better. Both have been in ps4 for some time but both suffer from the same table upgrade problem. I have a number if tables on the ios version which are available only across my ios devices. I remember buying pinball arcade in my 360 too yet understandably I get nothing on ps4.
Born2beSlicker
It seems like buying tables on PS3 PBFX2 transfer to Vita and PS4. That's why it sucks.
Jackie33
I don't see why they won't transfer from the 360
Born2beSlicker
It seems to be a network/OS level problem with how the 360 and XBO data interface on Xbox Live. It's highlighted by how Microsoft don't have much cross-buy implementation with 360/XBO/W8/WP8. There doesn't seem to be a standard way to register a purchase on one console highlighted on the other one that any developer can just plug in. It's absolutely not Zen's fault. The only games that do this are CoD, BF4 and Spartan Assault. Games which Microsoft had incentive to work on a fix for.

The game has been delayed into August so they can implement cross platform purchases.
First of all, we’d like to thank you all for your feedback on our announcement of the Xbox One version of Pinball FX2. We cannot underestimate the importance of your support, insight, and yes, even criticism regarding our projects. We have a few announcements to make affecting Pinball FX2 fans and particularly the Xbox One version of the game. Microsoft and Zen Studios have taken your feedback to heart, and seeing that many of you were very upset with the news that table transfers between Xbox 360 and Xbox One would not be happening, we have some good news for you! We will be able to implement table transfers on Xbox One starting from Pinball FX2’s launch. Any available table on Xbox One that was previously purchased for Xbox 360 can be imported to the new version free of charge. However, as this process will take a bit more development time for the game, Pinball FX2 version of Xbox One will see a slight delay from its original release date this week to sometime in August. We apologize to any fans affected by this delay, but we pledge to make it up to you by incorporating this highly desired feature. Once again, we cannot thank you enough for your support through this process, as well as Microsoft’s, who took your feedback very seriously and worked with us to implement this feature. And again, we do apologize for the delay while we create the Pinball FX2 experience that our fans both want and deserve. We’re excited to bring Pinball FX2 to Xbox One owners, to have their previous purchases honored and transferred, and we can’t wait to share with you what we’ve got coming in the future. We thank you for your continued support!

It's not a problem as such, it's just a bit disappointing (and revealing) because the only thing that tipped me over into getting fibre was the Xbox One launch day realisation that shit just got BIG on the internet. I found once I got fibre in general it was no faster to download but you would hit good times and bad times . The average was just very average. Even today downloading 2.5 gigs of the UFC demo probably took around an hour. I'm not sure cause I fell asleep.

Forza Horizon 2′s next 16 new cars revealed – include 2002 Ferrari Enzo and 1988 Lamborghini Countach

rsz_forzahorizon2_carreveal_week2_1920x1080

Following last week’s reveal of the first 100 out of 200 new cars featured in Forza Horizon 2, Xbox Wire has detailed four more new cars and listed another 12.

Given the spotlight this week are the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2, the 2011 BMW Z4 sDrive35is, the 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 427, and the 2002 Ferrari Enzo Ferrari (shown below).

Welcome to how PC gamers have felt for years.

I think Rare have a hand in this somewhere, they recruited a ton of racer developers a while back so they could be doing the port or helping with next gen. From Ryan again.
We were only shown FH2 on XB1. Didn't see single 360 devkit at Playground. It's plenty "next-gen," I assure you. More in tmw's big preview
Preview tomorrow :shock:

Another one loses out on an E3 reveal. Surely they can't have enough left, can they?

UPDATE: To clarify, the Playground Games is developing solely for the Xbox One version, using Forza Motorsport 5's graphics engine as a baseline. The Xbox 360 version is being handled separately by Sumo Digital.

A decent arcade racer is so badly needed on the xbox after Need for Speed Rivals turned out so poor. My prayers are definitely answered with this announcement

4 page article up on IGN, The amount of detail the lighting system will have sounds incredible. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/06/03/a ... er=&page=1 Gameplay teaser this Friday (with I guess the proper reveal Monday). This is going to be amazing.
“We’ve taken the view that, if there isn’t a barrier in the real-world, if there isn’t a wall, there shouldn’t be one in our game,” says Fulton. “We want the player to be able to drive wherever he can in the real world.” “So that means that not only is the world of Forza Horizon 2 bigger than the one in Horizon, it also has three times more driveable area; a three-times bigger play space. Which means that you’re no longer constrained to the road. You can take the road, or you can hoon off it, through a fence. Through a vineyard. Through a deep forest or up a hill. Suddenly we’re really realising that sense of freedom that people feel is so important to Horizon.”
“We have far more content than we’ve ever had before,” says Fulton. “More than 700 events across the world, contributing to, I think a conservative 100 percent completion time of well over 100 hours. We have absolutely packed this game with racing, with non-racing, with discovery, and the ability to just point your car in any direction and just explore. So that’s freedom.”
“One of the few things they could do was plot a group GPS route to the other side of the world and they would start racing each other to that point. Rather than sticking to the road they would try to drive it as the crow flies, barrelling across fields and through the forest. “I lost count of the number of people who came running to my desk over the next few days saying, ‘You’ve gotta include this in the game.’ And that’s how the cross country event was born.”
The other change to the second-to-second racing is the Skills system. It was a fun yet ultimately quite peripheral part of the original Forza Horizon, and Fulton agrees. But that’s changing with a little help from PGR. “I think no game since the PGR series has put style on the same pedestal as winning,” says Fulton. “It’s as important with Forza Horizon 2 to drive with style as it is to win and we’ve put the Skills system front-and-centre in everything you do.”
patrick_bateman
I loved Horizon. Although its no where near the best arcade racer on 360. This would have to be something really special for me to go and buy an XB1. Could always pick it up on 360 mind you

Day 2 of horizon news. http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/06/04/f ... rst?page=1 Music
“We want a soundtrack you can explore in the same way you can explore our world. To that end we’ve doubled the number of radio stations in the game. We’ve doubled the amount of music that we’re going to be shipping with the game on disc. Playground Games has once again enlisted the aid of BBC radio DJ Rob da Bank, founder of two major UK music festivals and a well-known proponent of new music. “He’s curating the three main radio stations within the game,” explains Fulton. “There’s a cool dance electronic station, there’s a station which is much more indie rock, or alt rock depending on which side of the Atlantic you hail from, and then there’s a station which is all about really just living up to the world and the summer vibes that you have in Horizon; it’s all summery, dance-y pop which was really popular in the original Horizon.”
Res and frame rate
The discourse around resolution and framerate continues to make headlines as developers optimise their games as they see fit. Fulton and the team at Playground are firmly of the belief the next-generation is about light rather than resolution, but he did confirm Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One would display at 1080p and, like the original Forza Horizon, a locked 30 frames-per-second. Dropped or torn frames have traditionally been a common bugbear with many console games that target approximately 30 frames-per-second. However, with the original Forza Horizon Playground found it was able to avert these issues entirely. The team adopted a zero-tolerance approach to frame drops (regardless of what level of rendering was required on screen the frame rate was never permitted to dip) and as such the game was rigidly locked at 30 frames-per-second. Most importantly, the locked frame rate (as opposed to a fluctuating one) resulted in a smooth and consistent racing experience. Playground has approached Horizon 2 similarly.
Showcase events
Unsurprisingly, Showcase Events are back with a vengeance in Forza Horizon 2. “We had a list this long,” smiles Fulton, stretching one arm towards the floor. “That’s a great brainstorm to be in at the start of a project.” “For us, making them and then playing them, that was one of the most fun parts of Horizon. We’ve really plussed them up. We’ve just taken what was really fun about racing a plane and said, ‘What if it was five planes, spewing colours out the back, like an aerial stunt team?’ Another example will have you racing a steam train across the countryside. “You’ll be in a classic rally car for that one,” says Fulton. “That’s just coming together right now, actually.”
:D

I don't like the way they say display at 1080p, every game displays at 1080p on Xbox One, as they did on Xbox 360 if you had your Xbox 360 set to 1080p output, it's native res that matters.

In addition to the previously detailed Black Market feature, which will allow players to buy and sell Burn Cards for in-game currency (“Credits” – earned from playing the game, rather than bought with real-world money), Game Update Five will also add Daily Challenges.

Very interesting. A netflix style subscription system for one of the two biggest publishers in the business.
Born2beSlicker
I'm not sure how I feel about this. I guess if you're invested in EA franchises, it's good. However, why would you buy new games when you could just wait for it to go in the vault?
hallben
BXB - EA Launching Subscription Based System on Xbox One I will be interested to see how EA position this, it seems like a very odd move for them. I suspect vault games will always be the yearly instalments and you will have to wait a year to access them. At $5 a month and with a 10% saving on purchases it seems like a good deal. A little too good for EA. I suppose they are betting on the fact at that price most people will just do it, people who wouldn't normally buy the game. It is a much lower Annual sub price that I would have guessed. If we get t for £30 or even £25 I would probably do it.

There will be some complicated and arsehole way that EA always win.

The Play First element is cool as well. Get a game five days before it comes out, play for at least 2 hours, then decide if you want to buy it and if you do, the save carries over.

Following EA’s announcement of the company’s new subscription program, Access, we were curious about it being tied only to Xbox One. We reached out to Sony for clarification, and it seems like PlayStation 4 owners shouldn’t hold their breath for the program. “We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,” a Sony representative told us via email. “PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price. We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer.”
http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/arch ... gamer.aspx At least give the gamers the choice.

Was talking to one of the guys at work about this. He thinks it's an interesting idea with good pricing, but is worried about the "slippery slope" - what if Activision & Ubisoft etc. follow suit? What if certain things get restricted to subscribers? Etc.

We all know that publishers want an all digital future where instead of owning games, we own licenses/subscriptions, so they get a constant revenue stream. This is absolutely just the tip of the iceberg,

Following EA’s announcement of the company’s new subscription program, Access, we were curious about it being tied only to Xbox One. We reached out to Sony for clarification, and it seems like PlayStation 4 owners shouldn’t hold their breath for the program. “We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,” a Sony representative told us via email. “PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price. We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer.”
http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/arch ... gamer.aspx At least give the gamers the choice.
I know nothing of the details about the business side if things but I applaud Sony for not just opening their legs. It all comes down to a horrible mistrust of EA. I know Sony are a business but my perception is they are fair and value my custom, they have proven that to me already. EA are the exact opposite, I'm all for businesses making money but EA are a class act when it came to ringing out the towl. Where's the catch? Online only in ea games for the sub fee? Maybe one day.

I paid £20. I'll make that back selling my BF4 disc and hopefully they won't be too stingy adding more titles to the vault. As long as it's affordable I'm all for this kind of thing.

I've done the same, 12 months all paid up. The disc to digital transition was a lot easier than I expected, took the battlefield blu ray out and I didn't have to press any purchase buttons or go to the access app, the game just ran off the HDD straight away. I don't think it'll be long before that shit NBA game appears and Need for speed.

There's one reason Sony didn't go for this and that's because they want to offer a service of their own (Playstation now or whatever it's called) At £20 for a year I'm willing to take the chance on this even though I already own 2 of the games. Whatever anyone's thoughts on EA this is tremendous value for money
Born2beSlicker
I think I might do a month payment, pummel BF4 and cancel. Then see how the service evolves and see if it interests me. Most EA games don't do much for me, I'm not a sports guy and Mass Effect/Dragon Age/Dead Space don't tickle my balls in the way they do for everybody else. I'm a hollow husk of a man. :(

[ There's one reason Sony didn't go for this and that's because they want to offer a service of their own (Playstation now or whatever it's called)
PS Now (the streaming service in beta) certainly "does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect" ;) PS+ may be very good, but PS Now currently has an awful pricing structure. Still, as it's a beta Sony will hopefully fix its horrendous pricing.

Colonel Red
This sounds like a good deal at first, but I don't like where it's leading. Sony seem to want to protect the value of PS+, which can only be diminished by a competing service like this. Hence, they turned this down when EA approached them. It seems unlikely that we'll see any EA sales on Xbox One's Deals With Gold program now that EA have their own service to promote. Extrapolate that across other publishers who might do a similar thing (Ubisoft, Activision), and you're left with a poorer experience for the consumer. I would rather support cross-publisher services than encourage services like this which will ultimately harm consumers, in my opinion.
hallben
Pretty publishers, pretty per picture and sledding? WTF are you on?!

PS Now has absolutely nothing like what Ea a are offering. Completely different products with completely different structures and approach. Lots of guys here are the kinds that jump on season passes and all that other bullshit so I'm not surprised you all think this is a great idea :lol: .......EA will somehow make you regret it. Like it or not.
Tezcatlipoca
Although they're completely different products, I think that Sony's comment regarding "value" means that it's fair to mention PS Now, given that PS Now (with its current beta pricing) most certainly does not offer "value".
Harry
Who knows what pricing they will stick to in the end. Personally I think if you want to play ps3 games then keep your ps3. The overheads for Sony on this must be astonishing. I actually think it's a bad business idea. You could spend 50 hours idle on a title screen costing Sony money in electricity ,resources and bandwidth.
Born2beSlicker
You care more about Sony's electric bill than adding value to the consumer with the product they bought? Even if there are features I'd never use, I wouldn't be against those features existing. Also there's the fact that space/power plugs in entertainment centres are limited, so not everybody will have the ability to keep multiple consoles hooked up. There's also the people who trade/sell so they can upgrade.
Harry
At some point everyone will not give a shit about the old boring ps3 though. Same thing happened last gen which forced even Microsoft to add limited backward compatibility. People moan then eventually let go. I think PS now is an interesting service which will melt the planet and cost Sony a whole bunch of money they could have spent elsewhere on first party titles or infrastructure investments for their awfully slow web site. I just see it as a waste but at the same time I'm interested to give it a go as there are many older games I'd like to play. It would be ironic if PS3 users used it to play PS4 games .
sono
All about the Vault for me, when they decide to release dates and or which content and how fast we will get it will depend on if I take the plunge at the moment $25 for early demo's doesn't cut it and the 4 games they offer at the moment: I've completed Battlefield on the Xbox 360. Fifa 14 PS4. Madden 25 on the PS3 it's the worst Madden ever made. Peggle 2 no thanks.

The Walking Dead: Season Three confirmed by Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman

clementine

Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con that Telltale’s The Walking Dead, its acclaimed episodic game series based upon Kirkman’s comic, will return for a third season.

Amid the Ruins, the penultimate episode of Season Two, was released last week.

Is there still no news of a date for Xbox One version of season 2 (or season 1 again for that matter).

Anyone played episode 4 yet? It's in my backlog, along with the final 2 episodes of The Wolf Among Us :( Season 3 of TWD was confirmed at Comic-Con. The Walking Dead: Season Three confirmed by Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman

Danger Moss
Finally, somebody else has played it. What you think? I thought it was as good an episode as they've done. :)
Tezcatlipoca
If you tell the truth about the walkie talkie does it prevent Kenny from getting beaten?
No. He gets his ass handed to him of regardless of Clem's response.
Tezcatlipoca
I played ep 3 on Friday. - Helped Sarah. - Told Bonnie about Luke. - Lied about the walkie talkie (started saying I found it before Kenny took the blame). - Watched Kenny kill Carver. - Chopped off Sarita's arm. If you tell the truth about the walkie talkie does it prevent Kenny from getting beaten?
Danger Moss
Nobody else played this yet? Played it again last night. It's as good an episode as they've produced so far.
Danger Moss
Holy fuck! What an episode. My choices. Massive spoilers obviously. Helped Sarah with her chores. Didn't tell Bonnie about Luke. Didn't admit to stealing the walkie talkie. Watched Kenny kill Carver. Chopped off Sarita's arm. Awesome stuff. Nice to see a few of the 400 days characters featuring. Edit. Seems the achievements aren't registering when you pop them. Due to MS not having updated them yet. Seem to remember this happening with a couple episodes last season. You'll either have to wait before you play or re download your profile and replay the episode once it's updated to get them.

I'm holding out until it's all done or a next gen version is out.

Just me then? This episode is a fair bit longer than the last one. Pretty slow paced just kinda fleshing out some of the new characters and setting things up for the rest of the season. Still some incredibly tense moments though. My choices. Huge spoilers obviously. Took the blame for Sarah's photo. Sat with Kenny. Told Walter the truth. Convinced Walter to forgive Nick. Left to find Kenny.

I play these games with my partner who isn't into many games, so it was a blow to the enjoyment as she's not used to this kind of thing. I'll need to replay to that point and hope it saves, so we can continue. Oh and episode 2 is next month.

Fucking god damn it. Playing this just now and got to the point where Clem fights a zombie in the shed. I died and the reload screen glitched so I went back to the main menu....and my save is gone. Back to the start. The game kept saying I saved and everything but it's all gone. :x
That happened to me too. Bloody annoying but it didn't take me long to get back to that point again

Ep 1 done. Tried to save Christa Didn't give water to the dying man Killed the dog Ran to Nick instead of Pete (well, Pete looked like he'd been bitten anyway...) Very good. Had what seem to be the usual issues for a Telltale game (slowdown, freezing, etc.) but not as bad as with The Wolf Among Us.

err i dont think it cloud saves. Well everytime ive redownloaded it its not...
I'm talking about backups not cloud saves. if I had restored my backup the backup should have contained the saves as they'd be part of the app data. Doesn't matter anyway though.

The very fact they're already working on next gen projects and the nature of developing these types of games makes me think a next gen version may never come. Fuck waiting anyway.

Holding out for this is going to be so so hard. Next gen versions have to be in the works, all the games telltale announced at VGX were next gen and they all use the same engine, so it can't be far off right?
Danger Moss
Done. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! :clap: As usual it doesn't give you it easy. It punches you in the gut almost straight away then continues to do so. Loads of tough choices. Playing as Clem is awesome. :D Almost no technical issues apart from a slight dip in frame rate on one occasion. This has been given a noticeable graphical improvement from season 1. I'm guessing the budget is considerable higher this time round. Episode 2 can't come quick enough! Here's what I did. MASSIVE SEASON 2 EPISODE 1 SPOILERS! Tried to save Christa. Killed the dog. Accepted Nick's apology. Gave water to dying man. Saved Nick.

theadmusker
I've not yet done the bonus episode, but I've completed the main game. My favourite episode was number two, as it was the most hard hitting for me, whilst still being fresh. Other thoughts: Carley being murdered was a kicker. I would have tried to get with her. Being bitten devastated me. I'm shocked that I am in the minority by getting Clem to walk away at the end. I'm also surprised that I am in a massive minority by having killed both St John brothers. Kenny was (is?) a massive cunt and I hated him. Larry was a twat also. That homeless guy was frickin' cool. I liked Molly as well. If I (Clem?) ever see Vernon again, I'm going to kill that cunt.
Born2beSlicker
I wonder if the game saves cross over between seasons.
Born2beSlicker
In a recent chat with Red Bull UK, Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors said the team is currently looking into different ways to carry save data from the first season over to the second season, which Telltale is already working on. "Right now we are just starting to form the concept for season two," Connors said in the interview. "This all remains to be seen, but we are definitely figuring out how to carry the saves over."

I just finished episode two and they chopped off Mark's fucking legs!!!!!! This game certainly has its flaws, but it is so good. My heart was racing at certain points. Still, I'm surprised that only 17% of us killed both St John brothers. You can't keep pieces of shit like that around.

I have a BT home hub, it works beautifully and with the exception of Max COB last night the downloads are super quick on Xbox One for me.

it took me about 10 minutes to download the UFC demo, your connection is so not setup optimally for all the devices you use Harry, doesn't help that BT's Homehub is fucking shite.
Tezcatlipoca
For everything else, Fibre is fucking awesome. But when it comes to the Xbox, Microsoft seems to be the bottleneck and not my connection.
Harry
It's not a problem as such, it's just a bit disappointing (and revealing) because the only thing that tipped me over into getting fibre was the Xbox One launch day realisation that shit just got BIG on the internet. I found once I got fibre in general it was no faster to download but you would hit good times and bad times . The average was just very average. Even today downloading 2.5 gigs of the UFC demo probably took around an hour. I'm not sure cause I fell asleep.
