Morning News Wrap (12 Mar 2013)

Breakfast Wrap 06We’ve used this joke before, but we like it, so tough.  Happy Chewsday.  *fits of laughter*

On to the news rather?

Remember when they announced the PlayStation 4 ages ago?  Well, the YouTube advert linking to the Sony PlayStation Meeting has been named as the most watched commercial on YouTube for February.  Apparently, it was clicked about 26.3 million times, nearly double that of the most popular Super Bowl spot.

Apparently, this is overshadowed by the fact that the PS4 makes Goichi ‘Suda51’ Suda “horny”.  Erm.  Rather just read more here.

Michael Pachter is at it again.  He is predicting that next-generation games will cost around $10 more than current gen games.  As usually, all this speculation and guess work contradicts previous suggestions that games will top out at $60.  More on GameSpot.

Assassin’s Creed IV will feature “HBO, reality” style pirates.  Meaning they won’t be child friendly and will be devoid of cliches.  Or as lead content manager for the game Carsten Myhill told MCV, they hope to “redefine piracy in entertainment”.

A trophy in God of War: Ascension is to be changed following an internet outcry.  “Bros before Hos”, which is awarded when Kratos defeatsone of the game’s female enemies, will be patched to alter its name to “Bros before Foes”. [via Joystiq]

The leaked but unannounced Xbox LIVE Arcade game Star Wars: First Assault game listed last year sometime is – according to Kotaku sources –  “a downloadable multiplayer shooter that was originally slated for release this spring. The game supports up to 16 players—one eight-person team of rebels and one eight-person team of Stormtroopers—as they face off on Star Wars worlds like Bespin and Tatooine.”  It is also apparently the predecessor to Battlefront III.

The US PSN has a bunch of additions this week which we assume are arriving on the European version too.  Ubisoft items are on sale and Joe Danger 2 is free to PSN Plus subscribers.  You can get the details here.  On top of that, four playable demos of games will be available too – Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge,Darkstalkers: Resurrection and Fuel Overdose.

FIFA 14 is likely to expand its connected features according to the game’s lead producer David Rutter.  Fear not however, they will also continue to develop the singleplayer experience too. [via CVG]

A patch for the PC version of Tomb Raider has been released on Steam and fixes stuff, as well as making Lara’s hair look like it has just left the salon or something.

Finally, the third party Steam Box – Xi3 Piston – will arrive around Christmas 2013 with a slightly eye-watering price of $1000.  Ouch. [via Eurogamer]
