Street Fighter V File Size Revealed


Pure Playstation is reporting that Street Fighter V on PS4 will only be a 6.4GB download, which is a relief to PS4 gamers running low on HDD space.

Compared to other major 3rd party games, that is tiny. Even DKC Tropical Freeze is bigger than that on Wii U, so I commend Sony and Capcom for keeping the file size small. Street Fighter V launches on February 16th on PS4 and PC.

Big Red Button CEO says the Studio Almost Closed Down After Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric


Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric on Wii U was a bad game, I think we can all agree upon that. The CEO of Big Red Button, Bob Rafei, discussed the game a bit now that the stench of the ill-fated Sonic game has calmed down.

“Unfortunately, the reception to Rise of Lyric was not as strong as we would have hoped. This industry really is punishing if you don’t have a product that performs well. We nearly closed the studio.”

“The goal of the Sonic Boom brand was to make Sonic a bit more [well rounded] and to increase the other characters’ personalities,” Rafei says. He explains SEGA and Big Red Button came together as different entities to “really define what the Sonic brand was about” and to create a “consistent vision” for how the character would interact with a strong supporting cast. This is something he is proud of.

You can check out my review of Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric here. I disliked the game so much I sold it on Amazon after I was done playing it, which I usually don’t do with the games I purchase.

Nintendo NX Rumors 24

Nintendo NX – New Dev Kit Info & NDA Updates (Rumor) | SuperMetaldave64


A verified PlayStation 4 developer has revealed new information about the Nintendo NX to SuperMetaldave64. Check out the video on the topic below, along with the written information over on NintenGen.

  • Nintendo has key partners they are working with that already have Dev Kits (Second & Third party) 
  • The Development Studio he works for is currently working on a graphically demanding PlayStation 4 game that they would like to have the opportunity to port to the NX. 
  • The Studio does not have Dev Kit’s themselves yet and have not been informed of the specs, however the graphical performance of the NX is of great interest to them due the their current project. 
  • The Developer and Studio he works for has been informed of the date/time frame they are allowed to start ordering NX dev kits, but they are under a strict NDA not to reveal this time frame until Nintendo has officially revealed the NX to the public. 
  • The Developer did say that Nintendo is screening early Dev Kit access before the public developer date to order, but the process is extremely complex with a lot of paperwork to complete by both sides before having the chance of being approved. Most likely the paperwork has a lot to do with a multifaceted NDA for early access. 
  • When NDA’s on the NX are less binding and when his studio gets the NX Dev Kit soon or in the future, he will inform me of more details on what the Dev Kit is like (specs etc) if he is able. 
  • NX is most likely to be released this year at the end of 2016 based on the time-frame he was given (NDA) of when dev kits are planning on being distributed to developers besides the key partners to Nintendo that already have them. However, he said that ultimately as with any company it’s up to Nintendo to follow through and release the NX during this time frame.
