Watch_Dogs, Bayonetta 2 sales and more

Written by on    

The Co-op Podcast returns for it’s 92nd edition and we continue to discuss the latest news in gaming.

Grand Theft Auto fans were treated to some interesting news this week. Rockstar spilled the beans on the next-gen versions of Grand Theft Auto V possibly having a first-person view mode of both on foot, and also in cars, with more detailed interiors. How much of a difference will this make to the overall Grand Theft Auto experience?

We also discussed the poor sales that Bayonetta 2 has experienced over in Japan. Is this a sign of how it will perform in North America? Does this mean that the game may go multi-platform in the future?

Watch Dogs is also back on the agenda after Ubisoft announced through the official Watch Dogs twitter account that the Wii U version of the game will not have the Bad Blood DLC. Why are Ubisoft making this move?



Also discussed this week:

– October Games With Gold will include Chariot, Super Time Force, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Darksiders 2. Is this Microsoft’s best promotion yet?

– Xbox One launching in China next week with 10 games. How will the Xbox One perform in this particular market?

– A new study from researchers at Villanova and Rutgers shows that violent games have no telling effects on the real-world behaviour of people who play them. Is this news to everyone? Or is it just good old-fashioned common sense?

– GameStop looking to allow gamers to buy and sell used DLC. GameStop Executive Vice President Mike Hogan mentioned that the video gamer retailer is looking into being able to allow users to buy used DLC, such as digital games and add-ons.

– PlayStation TV plays select content from PlayStation systems past and present, including:
PlayStation Vita – PS TV plays select titles from PS Vita, which can either be downloaded to the device or inserted directly into the system using a PS Vita card.
• PlayStation Classics – Download classic games from PS One and PlayStation Portable, like Wipe
