Capcom removes Ultra Street Fighter 4 from tournament, blames Sony for bugs

Following the recent news that the release of Ultra Street Fighter IV for the PlayStation 4 has a large number of bugs and glitches, the game's developer Capcom has said that it will be pulled from the official Street Fighter tournaments, taking place this summer. Among the problems with USF4 reported, including audio issues and animation problems, the most damaging has been input lag, or delays between button presses and in-game movements/actions. As Street Fighter is built on some of the most precise timing mechanisms, lag of this sort would be devastating during a tournament.

Ultra Street Fighter IV has a problematic PS4 launch

These days, games developers seem to have two options: delay a games release date until bugs have finally been fixed, or rush ahead with the release of a glitchy game. In Street Fighter, the timing of complex button-thrashing attacks can make the difference between landing a special attack and getting dropkicked to the curb. Ultra Street Fighter IV (USF4) has just been released for PS4, but fans are experiencing bugs ranging from display lag, to smeared visuals.

Retro Freak can play old console games if you have cartridges

Retro Freak can play old console games if you have cartridges

There is no shortage of devices and software that will let you relive your youth's gaming days by letting you play that generation's console titles. But this retro console, appropriately named Retro Freak, is admittedly and curiously different. It makes a boast no other custom-made console has so far been able to make. It claims to be able to play any and all old console games, from Famicom all up to the more recent Game Boy Advance. That, however, seems only possible if you actually have the game cartridge at hand.

NVIDIA SHIELD, “Pro” version appears, disappears from Amazon

It might be nigh time for NVIDIA's take on an Android TV gaming rig for your living room to come to market. That is, if the "accidentally" outing of the NVIDIA SHIELD is any indication. Amazon's product listings showed, and then swiftly removed, the NVIDIA SHIELD as well as an unannounced SHIELD Pro model, hinting that we're close to seeing one or both in the retail flesh soon. If that soon will be before May ends, it could give Android TV a serious boost before Google I/O 2015 kicks off.

Microsoft ban of Gears of War leakers doesn’t brick console

Leaks in whatever industry, be it mobile or gaming, isn't a new thing, but most of the time, these "sources" are able to get away scot-free. However, rare and unfortunate is it for those who have been caught red-handed and have been punished for being too eager to share things covered by NDAs. Microsoft has apparently taken such action against testers of an unannounced but also leaked Xbox One remake of Gears of War. But what would normally be a non-event has been blown into a full scale drama involving claims of bricked Xbox One consoles.
