/// EA: Tablets Could Be More Powerful Than Consoles By 2018!
Speaking at the 2015 Technology, Internet & Media Conference, EA CFO Blake Jorgensen said that he thinks tablets will be a bigger part of the company’s business, and that it could rival console specs in a few years’ time.
What gets us the most excited is the power, the computing power, of mobile devices and the speed at which that’s growing…What that might mean is that a tablet, three or four years from now, has more power than what a typical console has. And that will open up a whole new set of people to console-style games that are much more immersive, much deeper, much more character-driven than simply a static mobile game that you might play for a small burst of time while you’re waiting for the bus.

Much more portable than it is today. And that for us is a huge opportunity. [Source]

/// Eurogamer has Dropped Review Scores!
Starting today with our review of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, Eurogamer is making the biggest change we’ve ever made to the way we review games. From now on, we will no longer be scoring games out of ten. In place of scores, we’ll have one-line summaries for every review, and a new recommendation system whereby some, but not all games will be considered Recommended, Essential or Avoid. As a result of these changes, we will no longer be listed on the review-aggregation site Metacritic. We are also changing (or firming up) other areas of our reviews policy, with the intention of ensuring that we always review the same experience that you get when you buy a game. This means that we will only review from final retail versions and online games will be reviewed after they’ve launched. So, why are we doing this? How does it work? What does it mean? Read on to find out. [READ MORE]
