    The War Z renamed Infestation: Survivor Stories

    By GameSpot,

    Controversial zombie survival MMO changes name after after "months" of trying to resolve trademark issue.




    Controversial zombie game The War Z has changed its name to Infestation: Survival Stories.



    In a release, OP Productions said the name change was due in part to helping fans differentiate the game from "similarly titled brands."


    It is possible this is referencing Day Z, another zombie survival game from Dean Hall and Bohemia Interactive.


    "OP Productions initially filed The War Z trademark early last year, but soon found out from the United States Patent and Trademark Office that the name was comparable to another property," the company said in a statement.


    "After months of trying to resolve the issue, OP Productions decided the best option to avoid confusion among players was to rename the game," the statement went on. "Current players will not experience any change or interruption with the exception of the change in name and game logo."


    The game launched on Steam in December and was pulled just a day after release, after users reported numerous issues. Valve called its decision to originally publish the game a "mistake." The game was reinstated on Steam in late February.


    Its forums and databases were hacked in April, though no payment information was compromised.

    By GameSpot,

    New portable launching June 27 for $300; company believes new price makes device a "home run."




    The upcoming portable gaming device Nvidia Shield will launch June 27 for $300, the company announced today. Previously, the portable was slated to release for $350.



    "We've heard from thousands of gamers that if the price was $299, we'd have a home run," project manager Jason Paul said in a statement. "So we're changing the price of Shield to $299."


    Those who already preordered a Nvidia Shield will be charged the new, lower price when the product ships.


    "We want to get Shield into the hands of as many gamers as possible," Paul added.


    It will will be available through Nvidia's website, as well as at Newegg, GameStop, Micro Center, and Canada Computers.


    By comparison, the Nintendo 3DS sells for $200, while the PlayStation Vita begins at $250.


    The Nvidia Shield gives gamers access to an array of gaming avenues, including Nvidia TegraZone, Google Play, and Steam. The system runs on the Tegra 4 processor and boasts 16GB of memory, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a mini-HDMI output, a microSD storage slot, and a headphone jack.


    The device also features a five-inch, 720p multi-touch display. For more on the Nvidia Shield, check out GameSpot's preview of the device from the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year.

    Microsoft ditching Xbox One family sharing plan

    By GameSpot,

    "We won't be delivering that," Xbox boss Marc Whitten says after yesterday's policy reversal.




    Microsoft's previously announced Xbox One family sharing plan is no longer in the works, chief product officer Marc Whitten told sister site CNET in a new interview.



    "We won't be delivering that," Whitten said.


    The plan was short-lived, having been announced just two weeks ago on June 6. It was to allow players to share their games library with up to ten family members on any Xbox One.


    Xbox boss Don Mattrick alluded to the program's cancellation yesterday during his blog post concerning the Xbox One policy reversal.


    "These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc," Mattrick said. "Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray."

    GameStop applauds Xbox One used game policy reversal

    By GameSpot,

    Retailer says new policy "great news" for gamers and is a testament to Microsoft's understanding of importance of used game market.




    Retailer GameStop, which makes a significant portion of its revenue from secondhand sales, has applauded Microsoft for reversing its controversial used game policy today.



    "GameStop welcomes today's announcement from Microsoft about changes in functionality for its next-generation console, the Xbox One," the company said in a statement.


    "This is great news for gamers and we applaud Microsoft for understanding consumers and the importance of the preowned market."


    Under the terms of Microsoft's previous policy, Xbox One games could only be shared once, and only to someone a player has been friends with on Xbox Live for 30 days.


    In addition, whether or not secondhand Xbox One games would be allowed at all was in the hands of individual publishers like Activision or Electronic Arts.


    Microsoft did away with that policy today, saying gamers will be able to trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc-based games in the same way that they can today on Xbox 360.


    "There will be no limitations to using and sharing games; it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360," Microsoft said today.
