Rumor: The Last Of Us Remastered PS4 Bundle Coming Soon?

amazon france the last of us remastered ps4 bundle 300x133 Rumor: The Last Of Us Remastered PS4 Bundle Coming Soon?

If you haven’t yet picked up The Last Of Us on PlayStation 3 and don’t own a PlayStation 4 either, it looks like you might be able to get them both together, at least in Europe. Amazon France has a listing posted for a bundle featuring a black 500 GB PlayStation 4 console along with a copy of The Last of Us Remastered with a price of €429.99 scheduled for release on July 30th. A PS4 by itself is listed at €394.90, a difference of €35.09. The game itself is listed for €49.90. So if you bought both separately, you’d be paying €444.80. Thus if this bundle is indeed real, you’ll be able to save yourself €14.81 by purchasing it instead of the individual items themselves.

GameZone reports that according to a recent listing on the Microsoft Store, Batman: Arkham Knight may be releasing on February 24, 2015. This information has since been removed from the Microsoft listing, so either it was incorrect or it was posted before it was supposed to be. The only confirmed date for the game thus far is 2015.

Rumor: Crytek Close To Going Bankrupt?

crytek logo Rumor: Crytek Close To Going Bankrupt?

German magazine GameStar recently reported that Crytek was experiencing financial difficulties and placed some of the blame for this on the development of Ryse: Son of Rome, an exclusive launch title for Microsoft’s Xbox One calling it a “disaster.” They also reported that offers are being made to Crytek staff members to join other companies.

Crytek is denying the existence of any such problems. They said the following in a statement to Eurogamer:

“Regardless of what some media are reporting, mostly based on a recent article published by GameStar, the information in those reports and in the GameStar article itself are rumors which Crytek deny.

We continue to focus on the development and publishing of our upcoming titles Homefront: The Revolution, Hunt: Horrors of the Gilded Age, Arena of Fate, and Warface, as well as providing ongoing support for our CryEngine and its licensees.

We have received a lot of positive feedback during and after E3 from both gaming press and gamers, and would like to thank our loyal employees, fans and business partners for their continuous support.”

Eurogamer also reports that a source told them prior to E3 that some staff at Crytek Sofia had not been paid for the past two months. They also received similar reports from Crytek UK.

GameStar mentioned that World of Tanks developer Wargaming may make a purchase offer for Crytek and Eurogamer mentions that there may have been investment from a Chinese source that was put on hold.

Rumor: The Legend of Zelda Wii U To Have Multiplayer Features?

In a recent interview with Game Informer, Zelda series Producer & Director Eiji Aonuma teased that next entry in the franchise may possibly have multiplayer features. In regards to a question from GI if Zelda U would have multiplayer, Aonuma-san said:

“The two-player functionality of Hyrule Warriors is actually something that has traditionally been done in the Dynasty Warriors series, but they’ve changed because of the hardware and the second screen on your GamePad. Instead of having a splitscreen on the television, you have one-player playing on the television and one on the GamePad. When I was talking back about making Zelda more than just a single-player experience? That’s something you will see in the future, maybe next year.”

So while it’s not confirmed that Zelda U will have multiplayer, it’s not denied either. The Zelda series has previously seen brief flirtations with multiplayer with 2002′s The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Four Swords on GBA and 2004′s The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures on GameCube as well as limited multiplayer with the Tingle Tuner functionality in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks also had multiplayer modes, but neither were part of the main quest. Thus far true multiplayer in the main story mode has not been added to the main games in the series (unless you count the Four Swords games as part of the main series [some would consider them spin-offs]). Perhaps that will change with Zelda U?

It appears that a new 2DS color may be coming soon. It has since been removed from the site, but earlier on the Tomodachi Life website, the above image was featured which had a previously unannounced 2DS color option shown, a green & white one. Nintendo has since edited the image to remove the green & white 2DS, leaving only the black 3DS.
