Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 have been added to EA Access
20 January 2017, 5:26 pm

Earlier this month Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 received backwards compatibility on Xbox One. Now they're both available on EA Access, the 3.99 a month service exclusive to Xbox One that grants players unlimited access to various EA titles.

EA noted on Twitter that the new games are slowly rolling out, so if it doesn't show up in the vault for you yet, don't panic.

When asked about whether these titles would come to the publisher's similar program on PC, Origin Access, EA said "EA Access has been tailor made for the Xbox One console. We have nothing to announce for other platforms at this time."

Dirt Rally getting a PlayStation VR support, but it'll cost you a tenner
12 January 2017, 2:56 pm

Dirt Rally is getting a PlayStation VR mode - but it'll cost you 9.99 to download it.

The PSVR DLC pack will arrive "in the coming weeks", or as part of a new retail version of the game with the mode built in as standard.

Codemasters' new mode will let you play the entire game in VR and add a fresh Co-Driver mode to rally sections - so a second player can join in and use a controller to give instructions while looking at the TV (while your friend has the VR headset on).

HDMI 2.1 spec adds 8K/10K video, dynamic HDR and variable refresh
4 January 2017, 7:56 pm

The HDMI forum has announced the full HDMI 2.1 specification at this year's CES, revealing support for 4K, 8K and even 10K video up to 120Hz. These new higher resolution modes will require the use a new 48G cable, backwards compatible with current HDMI devices. There's also support for 'dynamic HDR', which apparently "ensures every moment of a video is displayed at its ideal values for depth, detail, brightness contrast and wider colour gamuts - on a scene-by-scene or frame a frame-by-frame basis."

However, it's the reveal of a 'Game Mode VRR' specification that is of most interest to us. It's new HDMI functionality that closely mirrors the G-Sync and FreeSync technologies available for PC monitors, described as offering a "variable refresh rate, which enables a 3D graphics processor to display the image at the moment it is rendered for more fluid and better detailed gameplay, and for reducing lag, stutter and frame-tearing". The HDMI forum says that the technology will work for both PC and game consoles.

Game Mode VRR could - in theory - see the complete elimination of screen-tear from console video gaming without the judder associated with traditional v-sync, and could also allow developers to target arbitrary frame-rates as performance targets as opposed to the standard 30fps or 60fps (though we wouldn't expect to see this occur too often as older screens will still be the main target). Although it is an HDMI 2.1 feature, the new 48G cable isn't required for today's resolutions - and in theory, this element of the protocol could be retrofitted to existing consoles paired with HDMI 2.1 screens (as we've seen in the past with PS3 3D and PS4 HDR support added to existing consoles via firmware updates). Of course, support in new screens will depend upon manufacturers fully supporting the HDMI 2.1 spec.

Let's remember GamesMaster's most infamous incident, broadcast 20 years ago
20 December 2016, 11:23 am

20 years ago, Channel 4 broadcast GamesMaster's most infamous incident.

It was dubbed the "Dave Perry Super Mario 64 incident" by fans of the 90s TV show, and it's easy to see why. It involved renowned gaming expert Dave Perry, Super Mario 64 and it certainly was an incident.

Here's what happened: during the filming of the 1996 GamesMaster Christmas special, co-commentators Perry and Kirk Ewing were tasked with competing on the Cool, Cool Mountain course of Super Mario 64. Ewing lasted 26 seconds. Perry lost control and slid off after the first bend. He was not a happy bunny.
