Molyneux: HoloLens Is More Exciting Than VR, But What's the Killer App?

Fable creator Peter Molyneux thinks that Microsoft's recently announced HoloLens augmented reality is potentially more interesting than Oculus Rift and virtual reality, but that it faces many of the same challenges.

"I think [HoloLens], for me, more exciting than even VR but it shares a similar problem as VR does and that is: what is the application going to be?" Molyneux told Gamesindustry.biz in an interview. "This is the problem with VR - the applications that we think are going to be great on it quite often are exhausting or very challenging. My hope is that their concept video doesn't over promise what the technology can deliver."

Back in June 2014, President of worldwide studios at Oculus VR Jason Rubin described the challenges Oculus Rift faces similarly. "I believe VR's Angry Birds is going to take a few years to find," he said. "But there's plenty of fun (and success) to be had along the way."

Keep in mind that Molyneux's comments are also based on an early versions of HoloLens' tech that he tested over two years ago.

On Wednesday during a Windows 10 event, Microsoft officially announced a future-focused augmented reality platform called "Windows Holographic." Its overall aim is to blend your digital life with the real world.

For more on HoloLens, which Microsoft says is different than the Oculus Rift and Sony's Morpheus, read our coverage of the reveal announcement.

Tomb Rider 3D - Exclusive Review

I don't think they got enough credit for the name: "Tomb Rider 3D". I mean it's a brilliant IP theft and I love the "3D" bit at the end!

Really like the concept, but they need to COD-it up a bit. Much faster carts, explosions, waterfalls, real crocodiles, Kevin Spacey as Ramses and as much autoaim they can get away with, while still empowering the rider.

1,800 Minecraft Passwords Compromised by Phishing, Not Hacking, Mojang Says

Earlier this week, German publication Heise reported that 1,800 Minecraft accounts were compromised and leaked online, but Minecraft developer Mojang explained that it wasn't hacked.

Writing on the company's official website, Mojang's Owen hill explained that the compromised accounts were fooled into giving up their information with a phishing scam. Basically, some "bad people," as Hill said, pretended to be Mojang in order to give up their private details.

"No-one has gained access to the Mojang mainframe," Hill said. "Even if they did, we store your passwords in a super encrypted format. Honestly, you don't need to panic."

Hill added that Mojang already emailed everyone who's affected and reset their passwords, so if you didn't get an email you probably don't need to worry. However, if you want to be extra careful, you can change your password at minecraft.net/resetpassword, and address any other support issues at help.mojang.com.

Halo: Master Chief Collection Update Coming in Next Few Days, Update Notes Released

Written By Kom Limpulnam on Minggu, 18 Januari 2015 | 23.01

Halo: The Master Chief Collection's next update will be available within the next few days, potentially a little later than initially planned, 343 Industries has announced.

343 Industries said that the content update is undergoing further testing, but for now it has released detailed notes on what the update will include. As it previously said, the update will focus on UI, matchmaking, game-specific multiplayer and campaign, controls, and stability.

"We continue to work on additional content updates that will include added improvements for matchmaking, parties, and other top community items," 343 Industries said.

Below are the content update notes as written by 343 Industries.

MATCHMAKING:

  • Improved matchmaking search success rates.
  • Made an update to reduce instances of "Awaiting Privileges" matchmaking errors.
  • Made an update to ensure player counts more reliably match the expected numbers for each playlist.
  • Fixed an issue where player would sometimes appear to be searching in an incorrect "FIND GAME" screen.
  • Added countdown sound effect to the voting timer.

GENERAL MULTIPLAYER:

  • Made several improvements to party joining through the in-game Roster.
  • Made an update to ensure that the mute icon is visible while in Matchmaking.
  • Fixed an issue in Halo 4 where players could equip the same weapon as their primary and secondary weapons.

GENERAL CAMPAIGNS:

  • Made several improvements to stat tracking for Halo: CE, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.
  • Made changes to Halo 3 and Halo 4 scoring to ensure that players are not penalized for destroying empty vehicles.

GENERAL MENU:

  • Lowered the music volume level in multiplayer menus.
  • Fixed an issue where friend emblems in roster would show up as default when exiting a game session.
  • Made updates to UI and menus to improve multiplayer status messaging, such as when a player joins your lobby.

CONTROL LAYOUTS:

  • Made an update to the Halo 2 Anniversary "Legacy" Stick Layout.

STABILITY:

  • Made stability improvements across multiple titles for campaign and multiplayer.

The Master Chief Collection launched in November, and immediately faced a number of networking issues that made the game near-unplayable for some. 343 has worked consistently since then to fix the game's online woes, which have now been largely eradicated. In a bid to make it up to fans, Microsoft is giving Master Chief Collection owners a free copy of Halo 3: ODST and more.

Sony Closing All Its Stores in Canada

Sony is shutting down all its stores in Canada, the company has announced.

Sony confirmed the news to the CBC News, saying that it will close all its stores in the next six to eight weeks, and that it will redirect all of its business through its national network of Sony retailers, its online stores, and the "Sony-trained Telesales team," which handle sales by phone.

"Our network of Sony authorized retailers offer a full range of Sony products and will be supported by our in-store Merchandisers and Product Trainers on an ongoing basis in order to ensure that our past customers have continued access to knowledgeable Sales consultants who can support their ongoing Sony electronics needs," the company said in a statement.

Sony announced the news on the same day that Target announced its shutting down all its stores in Canada as well, two years and more than $1 billion after it first opened in the country. Target said it was "unable to find a realistic scenario that would get Target Canada to profitability until at least 2021."

The PlayStation 4 was the most sold console of 2014 in the US and globally, selling 18.5 million units in the 14 months since its launch, but Sony has had issues with its other divisions. In February 2014 it announced that it's selling off its VAIO PC brand and restructuring its TV business.

Microsoft Clarifies YouTube, Twitch Game Content Usage Rules

Microsoft has revised and clarified its recently updated Game Content Usage Rules, which tells people how they may use Microsoft's games to create content, specifically YouTube videos and Twitch streams.

The revision addresses some players' concerns regarding the Usage Rules portion, which was originally worded in such a way that made them think they can't use Microsoft game titles to describe their own videos.

"The policy has always been about enabling creators to use our game content, and we recognize it only works if their content can be found," Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb said on his blog. "The key here is for people to use game titles for discovery and not misrepresent Microsoft's role in the content's creation."

Microsoft said that it heard players feedback, and provided the clarification with this revised clause. The short version is that it doesn't want anyone to think something was made by Microsoft when it wasn't:

"In addition, your Items may not use the name of the Microsoft Game in their title to give the impression that Microsoft is the source of the Item, or authorized or endorsed the Item. Items that make referential use of our titles are fine, for example, 'Let's Play Forza Motorsport 5' or 'Tips and Strategies for Halo 5.' Using the Game title to tag your Item on social media is fine. We also don't object to 'Red vs. Blue' or 'Operation Chastity'. But we may object to 'Halo: Covenant Strike,' for example, if it could be confused as something Microsoft produced or licensed, or if it could be mistaken as an official part of the Game. We just want to make sure consumers don't get confused."

"Rest assured, we have not seen rampant abuse of this and we're not actively seeking violations on YouTube and Twitch," Hyrb said. "We love that you're passionate about our games and we want you to create great works."

You can find the full Game Content Usage Rules on Microsoft's website.

Kung Lao Returns to Mortal Kombat X

Written By Kom Limpulnam on Minggu, 04 Januari 2015 | 23.00

The blade hat wielding Shaolin monk Kung Lao will be a playable fighter in Mortal Kombat X, Developer NetherRealm has revealed.

The news comes via the cover story of Games Master magazine in the UK and Pelaaja in Finland. Like all characters in Mortal Kombat X, Kung Lao will have three unique combat style variations which give him access to different moves best suited for different play styles. Buzz Saw is best for an aggressive style and projectile attacks, Tempest is best for a defensive style and maintaining control of the stage, and Hat Trick lets Kung Lao toss his hat, make it hover in place, and call it back at any time.

NetherRealm also revealed the new Factions mode, which will let each player choose one out of five factions to join when fighting online. Each faction is affiliated with different characters in the game, and winning matches and other challenges will contribute "war points" to your faction.

Along with series incumbents Scorpion and Sub-Zero, a host of other new characters have been announced for the game, such as Quan Chi, D'Vorah, Ferra/Torr, Cassie Cage and Kotal Kahn. Familiar faces, such as Raiden and Kano, are also returning to the series. Former boss Goro will be a playable character for those who pre-order.

Xbox One Devs Can Now Use More of the Console's CPU

Xbox One developers can now use more of the console's CPU power, according to a recent report on its latest software development kit (SDK) from Eurogamer's Digital Foundry.

The latest update gives developers access to a seventh core (out of a total of eight) on Xbox One's CPU. Microsoft can now allow developers to use more of Xbox One's CPU as it continues to use less of the CPU itself for background operations related to Kinect's infrared and voice detection capabilities.

If developers want to use the seventh CPU core, they have to give up voice detection along with other Kinect functionality. However, even if they do, a user can still choose to use system-level voice commands, which will automatically use as much as 50 percent of that seventh core, causing problems for the developer. According to Digital Foundry, the leaked SDK also indicated that Microsoft intends to address this issue in future updates.

The only reason we know about these changes is because a hacking group called H4LT recently leaked the latest version of Xbox One's SDK. It's been suggested that the leaked SDK will allow developers to start creating homebrew applications or pirate games for Xbox One, but encryption technologies and server-side authentication mean that the SDK mostly a curiosity, at least for now.
