PLaystation 4 slim with headset UPDATE: Best Buy Pulls Bait and Switch on PS4 Slim Buyers

Best Buy just pulled a bait and switch on their customers trying to purchase a PS4 Slim, and they don’t appear to be happy.

Best Buy just pulled some shady tactics when it comes to people pre-ordering the upcoming redesigned Playstation 4, known as the Playstation 4 Slim. The PS4 Slim hits store shelves on September 15th, which is just a few days away. Stores around the country have been promoting the Uncharted 4: A Theives End PS4 Bundle since the PS4 Slim was officially unveiled by Sony not too long ago and their PlayStation Meeting on September 7th. The bundle features a 500GB PS4, with a disc copy of Uncharted 4, for the new price of the PS4 at $299.

A lot of places like Amazon have been taking pre-orders for the new console, and Best Buy put up a listing for a pretty stellar deal for people looking to jump in on this new version of the PS4. Also at the PlayStation meeting Sony unveiled a brand new headset known as the Platinum Wireless Headset.  It features virtual 7.1 surround sound and it’s compatible not only with the PlayStation 4 but any 3.5 millimeter devices as well as Bluetooth devices.

The crazy part of this deal from Best Buy was that it included the Platinum Wireless Headset  in the PlayStation 4 Uncharted 4 bundle at absolutely no additional cost, it came with the price tag of only $299.

Xbox One Games With Gold Titles Can be Played Offline

Xbox One Day One Shot Xbox One Games With Gold Titles Can be Played Offline

Contrary to some rumors, Xbox One Games with Gold titles can be played if you take your console offline.

There was a story earlier today that claimed that when Microsoft introduced Games with Gold for Xbox One, that titles that were downloaded would not be available to play once the console went off line. Well after Microsoft started the roll out of Halo: Spartan Assault and Max and The Curse of Brotherhood for Games with Gold on Xbox One, I downloaded the two titles, killed my Internet connection and fired up the game. No issues at all. I am not sure why or how that rumor got started, but I can confirm it is 100% false.

Keep in mind, this does not mean you can let your Xbox Gold Subscription expire and keep the games. You will still need a valid Xbox Gold membership to keep playing any game that is offered in the Games with Gold promotion on Xbox One. Xbox 360 Games with Gold will be keeping the old format which allows users to keep their downloaded games if their Xbox Gold Membership expires.

Tumblestone Coming to Steam This Fall

Tumblestone is the next addicting title from creator of The Bridge, Ty Talor.

The creator of the award winning title The Bridge, Ty Taylor, is bringing his next title Tumblestone to Steam this fall. Tumblestone is a very different title compared to The Bridge, which focused on rotating the world to solve puzzles. This time around, Taylor is going for a casual arcade experience with addicting gameplay focused on competitive multiplayer battles. At first glance of the screenshots, it may just look like another match 3 stack em style puzzle title, but that is not the vision the creators have in mind. Tumblestone looks to be a game that will have friends yelling at each other over close battles that will go down to the last second, while throwing blocks to their right causing panic sweaty palms  Check out the trailer to see the game in action.

Doom 4 Beta image Bethesda Confirms New Doom Coming. Beta Coming.

Remember all of the rumors that Bethesda and ID Software were working on a new Doom game? Well it seemed that Doom 4, or whatever the game ends up being called, is finally going to be unveiled sometime soon.

Wolfenstein: The New Order will be hitting store shelves on May 20th, and if you purchase the title new with a pre order, you will get access to what is simply known at this time as The Doom Beta. Nothing further has been unveiled about Doom or Doom 4, But obviously development is very far along if they are going to be having a beta sometime in the near future. Hopefully the beta will make 2014. I have reached out to Bethesda and asked when gamers can expect to hear more about this new Doom title, but have yet to hear back.

Persona Related Announcement Coming This Sunday

p4 all out attack 300x225 Persona Related Announcement Coming This Sunday

ATLUS sure does love teasers, huh? The teaser site has been around for about a month, counting down to November 24th 2013. The site as is is nothing much: A few white boxes on a red background along with the reveal date and several cities in Japan. Curiously, if you click on the boxes an image of Teddie from Persona 4 will pop up with a few different expressions. On top of that, it looks as though there is a link that leads to a livestream for the reveal on Nico Nico. What could the countdown be leading to? My hopes, along with the rest of Persona fans across the globe, is Persona 5. Rumors have pointed out that it could be a direct sequel/continuation of Persona 4, a console version of Persona 4: The Golden, or even a concert tour. Whatever it is, I can “bearly” wait for Sunday to get here.
