    Steam may allow game sharing - Report

    By GameSpot,

    Recent client beta suggests update that will allow users to lend titles to other people on their friend list.




    A few lines of code in the latest Steam client beta suggests that Steam users may be able to share their games with other users on their friends list.



    If the reports are confirmed, PC users will be able to share their Steam games.



    According to a post from Neogaf by user "Grief.exe", the discovered lines of code suggest that users may eventually be able to loan out games in their library and take them back at any time. The relevant code of text from the client are as follows:


    "SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicense_Title" "Shared game library"

    "SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_OwnerText" "Just so you know, your games are currently in use by %borrower%. Playing now will send %borrower% a notice that it's time to quit."

    "SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_BorrowerText" "This shared game is currently unavailable. Please try again later or buy this game for your own library."


    There is currently no word on how Valve will handle this among third-party publishers. For more news on Steam, check out GameSpot's recent coverage.

    Square Enix: PC version of Final Fantasy XV "undecided"

    By GameSpot,

    Chief technology officer Yoshihisa Hashimoto says that FFXV will need a high-powered PC to run; PS Vita cross-play options and smartphone/tablet apps up for consideration.




    The latest issue of Famitsu (via Final Fantasy Network) says that publisher Square Enix is still undecided on whether to release a PC version of Final Fantasy XV.



    If PC gamers ask loud enough, Square Enix may port FFXV for the platform.



    According to Square Enix's chief technology officer Yoshihisa Hashimoto, if a PC version were to be released, it would require an expensive machine to run. Hashimoto said that the company was waiting to gauge audience demand before making a decision on a PC version.


    Hashimoto added that FFXV is being developed in a PC environment and that platforms that support DirectX 11 will be likely candidates for the game, hence the next-generation leap to the PS4 and Xbox One.


    Square Enix is also considering using the PlayStation Vita for cross-platform functions for FFXV. Smartphones and tablets are also on the table for various FFXV-related features and apps.


    Final Fantasy XV was announced at Sony's E3 press conference last week. The game was originally called Final Fantasy Versus XIII. For more information, check out GameSpot's coverage on the title.

    Nintendo's new Steel Diver game to be free-to-play

    By GameSpot,

    New version of submarine simulation title to be multiplayer-focused; no platform confirmed.




    Nintendo's first venture into the free-to-play gaming realm will be a new Steel Diver title.



    Who likes some hot submarine action on their F2P games?



    According to an IGN report, Nintendo senior managing director Shigeru Miyamoto said that the new game based on the side-scrolling submarine-piloting title will be focused on multiplayer. "We're exploring [the game's design] from a perspective where we can take that from a multiplayer standpoint - it's going to have this four-player battle mode that I think is going to be very interesting."


    Nintendo has not confirmed a platform and release date for the new Steel Diver at this point in time, though CEO Satoru Iwata said last week during E3 that the game would be out this fiscal year (which ends in March 2014). For more information on the first Steel Diver game, head to GameSpot's previous coverage on the title.
