Grand Theft Auto V is set to release on PS4 and Xbox One November 18 and on January 27 on PC, with a host of changes and improvements in tow.
The news comes after weeks of speculation and proves that a recent leak by a retailer was completely correct. But while it’s exciting to hear that we’ll finally be able to jump back into Los Santos before too long, what’s even more impressive is the improvements Rockstar is saying we’ll be able to see.
Yesterday a group of game enthusiasts uncovered that Dota 2 Workshop Tools is actually a soft launch for Source Engine 2. A Reddit user did a great job of delving deeper into the Workshop Tools’ and found out some interesting points that indicate presence of Source 2 files. But that is not all.
On further investigation, it was revealed that the engine might be coming to Xbox One. As revealed by a NeoGaf user, the files had references to Xbox dashboard and dedicated servers. The code below the post states the following: “(Only used when hosting xbox games). Send clients updates at the same time. This saves CPU because the server will encode and calc deltas on less frames,” and “Dedicated Server for Xbox. Not using STEAM.”
On further investigation of the comments, we see statements for APIs that are being used to test connectivity between Xbox One and Steam. Debug messages such as this, “Failed to connect to xboxsystem,” are a clear giveaway.
It is important to note that all of this information should be taken with a massive grain of salt but what we can assume is that there might be an application under works that might allow users to stream Steam games to Xbox One or it might simply mean Dota 2 is coming to the console.

Capcom is set to remaster the original Resident Evil yet again for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A ground-up overhaul that sports 1080p visuals on the new consoles, the game will be available via digital platforms in early 2015.
The new version of the game offers more detailed characters and backgrounds plus remastered 5.1 surround sound effects. It can be played using the original 4:3 display ratio or 16:9 widescreen, and includes both the classic control scheme or an alternative, modern scheme where the character follows the direction of the analogue stick. These can be switched between at any point during play.
“Originally released in 1996, Resident Evil was then “remade” in 2002 from the ground up with new visuals, gameplay elements, environments and story details whilst retaining the survival horror atmosphere the series had become synonymous for,” notes the release.
“Both fans of the franchise who want a trip down memory lane and those who are yet to experience the game that coined the term survival horror for the gaming world will appreciate this definitive re-visit of that iconic 2002 Resident Evil title.”

Već dugo se priča kako je Microsoft spreman da izbaci neke starije Halo igre za PC (Halo 3 se čak pojavljivao u Steam registyju) a izgleda kako će stvari biti bolje nego što smo se nadali!
Naime, španski Amazon u pretprodaju je stavio Halo: Master Chief Collection i to u verziji za Xbox One i PC! Naravno, moguće je da je u pitanju samo greška (koja je međuvremenu ispravljena) ili da MS zaista planira Windows verziju, ali uz određeno kašnjenje u odnosu na onu za Xbox One. Naravno, Halo 5 i dalje ostaje Xbox One ekskluziva i to nema šanse da se promeni dugi niz godina.
Amazon je u poslednje vreme pogodio da Mortal Kombat 9 i GTA V izlaze za PC pa nije tako nemoguće da su u pravu i ovog puta.
