    "We have hundreds of beautifully crafted shooter games but not a single well designed erotic video game," says project founder.

    Hotly-anticipated VR headset Oculus Rift will be getting an erotic adventure game. The title, Wicked Paradise, is being developed by a team of "seasoned" developers who have reportedly worked on Rage, Call of Duty, Lost Planet, Madden, and PlanetSide 2.

    "We are all very excited about the future of digital entertainment and are using our years of experience creating the highest quality video games to create an erotic virtual reality adventure game that will blow your socks off," reads the game's official site, which also states that Wicked Paradise is due for release in 2014.

     

    "Imagine playing Leisure Suit Larry but instead of watching a screen, you are inside the game," reads the Wicked Paradise site. "Imagine the world and its inhabitants look highly realistic. Imagine walking into a bar in Wicked Paradise, noticing a beautiful lady, talking to her, and seducing her. Imagine playing your cards right and having passionate wild sex with her."

     

    In an interview with Road to VR, the game's founder Jeroen Van den Bosch said "I was always fascinated by the fact that we have hundreds of beautifully crafted shooter games but not a single well designed erotic video game. Sure there have been some attempts in the past, but they all have been ridiculously bad. There is nothing sexy about unrealistic models that move like rusty robots with faulty servos. If you want to genuinely create an erotic atmosphere in a videogame you need to convincingly cross the uncanny valley."

     

    Elsewhere in the interview, den Bosch points to the kind of titillation seen in BioWare's Mass Effect as inspiration for Wicked Paradise. "Also, story and setting is everything. The non-explicit sex scenes in Mass Effect are much more erotic than current available explicit adult video games. This is because you care about the characters in Mass Effect. A player will never feel very attracted to a virtual character if he or she doesn�t care. I believe that virtual reality is the perfect medium for an erotic video game because you can make the player feel really connected to your computer characters."

     

    "When the Oculus Rift Kickstarter happened, I realized the opportunity has come to put my plan in motion, so I did. I moved to Irvine, founded a company, secured financing, and started developing the world�s first erotic virtual reality experience."

     

    Yesterday Oculus VR announced it had received $16m in venture capital funding to "accelerate" the headset's release as a consumer product.

    Sony on why it won't hinder PS4 used games -- Flexibility creates value

    GameSpot
    By GameSpot,

    PlayStation boss Jack Tretton says ability to freely resell games creates value in the initial purchase; PS4 won't require online check-in because many countries don't have stable broadband access.

    The PlayStation 4 is a consumer-focused machine, and that's why it will not limit used games or require users connect to the Internet once a day, according to executive Jack Tretton.

    ps4-e3_screen001.jpg

     

    "We're most concerned about the consumer. And we really appeal to consumers on a worldwide basis," Tretton told Bloomberg TV. "And I think in the United States, we realize there's a high degree of broadband adoption, but we're in a lot of countries where people don't have the ability to connect on a daily basis and we want to appeal to consumers worldwide."

     

    Speaking about used games, Tretton said the ability to freely share titles with friends or resell them to retailers creates value for the initial purchase. If this flexibility were to be taken away, consumers would be less likely to buy games, he argued.

     

    "The other thing as it relates to the ownership of the game, if people pay a lot of money for that, they equate the value with the flexibility they have in that," Tretton said. "To do with it as they choose; to give it to their friends, sell it to their friends, trade it in to another retailer; that creates value in the initial purchase that they make."

     

    Competitor Microsoft has adopted a policy for the Xbox One that requires users to "check in" with a broadband connection once a day. In addition, though the system will allow used games, decisions will ultimately be left up to individual publishers.

     

    Also in the interview, Tretton spoke about the PS4's design. He called it "beautiful" and "very, very sexy."

     

    "People looked at it, and their jaw just dropped," he said.

     

    Regarding the PS4's $400 price point, a full $100 below Microsoft's $500 Xbox One, Tretton said Sony hit the sweet spot with balancing technological power and a consumer-friendly price point.

     

    "The goal is always to reach the most consumer-friendly price point so you can drive volume as quickly as possible," Tretton said. "But you walk that line between wanting to deliver the ultimate technological experience at a reasonable price and we think we hit a really nice chord at $399 with PlayStation 4."

    A leaked promotional poster suggests that the next DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be titled Vengeance.

    If the images obtained by Call of Duty Online prove true, Vengeance would be the third map pack for Black Ops II, following Revolution in January and Uprising in April. Four map packs are planned for the game in total.

     

    The artwork shows four new adversarial maps--Cove, Rush, Uplink, and Detour--alongside Zombies map Buried. The map pack also contains the Ray Gun Mark II for use in Zombies.

     

    All Call of Duty map packs are timed exclusives for Xbox, with PlayStation and PC releases traditionally being made available about a month after Microsoft platforms.

    The next Call of Duty title, Call of Duty: Ghosts, is being developed by Infinity Ward and will be released for current and next-gen platforms later in 2013.

    Fable III free for Xbox Live Gold members

    By GameSpot,

    All paying members can download free copy of Lionhead's 2010 RPG as part of new "Games With Gold" promotion.

    Adventure role-playing game Fable III is now available on Xbox Live as a free download as a special lead-in to Microsoft's new Games With Gold promotion.

    dog_fableii_01_56902_embed.jpg

     

    The Fable III freebie offer ends June 30.

     

    As announced during Microsoft's E3 briefing last week, the Games With Gold promotion will begin in earnest on July 1. The Fable III offer is an unrelated bonus, Microsoft said.

     

    As part of the Games With Gold promotion, Microsoft will offer up two free Xbox 360 games per month, available beginning on the 1st and the 16th day of every month.

     

    The first two games after Fable III will be Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3, though it's not clear which will release first. Once downloaded, players can keep these titles "no matter what," Microsoft said.

     

    Microsoft's future ambitions may revolve around the Xbox One, but the company does not plan to abandon the Xbox 360 anytime soon. Xbox boss Phil Spencer said last month that he believes the platform will "be very vibrant for many years."

     

    A redesigned Xbox 360 model was announced during Microsoft's E3 briefing last week and is available now.

    Sony prices first-party PlayStation 4 titles at $59.99

    By GameSpot,

    Sony's PlayStation 4 games will be sold for the same price as current-generation titles.

    Sony has confirmed that the pricing for its first-party PlayStation 4 titles will be $59.99 in North America, the same price point as PlayStation 3-era titles.

     

    ps4_hardware_sony_4_34776_embed.jpg

     

    Speaking to Shacknews, a Sony representative said "we have announced the pricing for our first-party lineup of PS4 launch and launch window games. All four titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall, DriveClub, Knack, and inFamous: Second Son are all $59.99." Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton previously said in February that PS4 titles would range from 99 cents to $60.

     

    Microsoft recently confirmed that first-party Xbox One titles would also be sold for $59.99.

     

    Third-party publishers--such as Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Activision--have yet to formally price their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles.

     

    During its E3 2013 press conference last week, Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 4 would launch later in 2013 for $399/€399/£349. The Xbox One, meanwhile, will launch in November for $499/€499/£425.

    State of Decay shifts over 500,000 copies

    By GameSpot,

    Microsoft hails open-world zombie survival game as "the fastest selling original game" on Xbox Live Arcade.

    Open-world zombie survival title State of Decay has sold over 500,000 copies on Xbox Live Arcade since its release two weeks ago, Microsoft has said.

     

    state_of_decay_78621_embed.jpg

     

    Microsoft adds that State of Decay has become "the fastest selling original game" on XBLA.

     

    Jeff Strain, founder of developer Undead Labs, added that the PC version of State of Decay will be coming to Steam and that the game will be getting its own sandbox mode. "I can tell you we're working on a sandbox mode designed to be a pure survival simulation," he said.

     

    "Beyond that," added Strain, "all I can say is we pay very close attention to what fans of the game are asking for, and their needs will largely guide our development priorities, so stay tuned."

     

    After a broken update previously caused problems, Seattle-based Undead Labs is currently working on State of Decay's second title update, which should shortly be sent off to Microsoft for certification.
