    Massive Layoffs Hit IO Interactive

    IO Interactive is a developer best known for the Hitman series, although they have produced a handful of other games in their career as well. Fans of the Kane & Lynch series, for example, should also be familiar with IO's work. In a statement made from the company to Develop, we're now learning that parent company Square Enix laid off almost half of the staff at IO. Previously, they had been working on multiple franchises alongside the next Hitman game, but now they are to focus all their attention on Hitman. Some of those laid off from cancelled projects will be relocated within the company to other positions. Here is the official statement that Square Enix shared: "The studio will focus resolutely on the future vision for the Hitman franchise and is in pre-production on a new triple-A Hitman project. However we have taken the difficult decision to cancel other studio projects and initiatives at IO and reduce the workforce in this studio, which will impact almost half of the employees currently at IO, as we make internal adjustments to face the challenges of today“s market. For those affected, we are extremely grateful for the hard work which they have contributed, and where it“s possible and appropriate to relocate staff to open positions at other studios within the group, we will try to do so. We are also reaching out to other companies for outplacement opportunities. We sincerely wish them well in their future careers." Hopefully those laid off from IO Interactive shall see their positions reinstated in other areas of the company or find jobs with other developers soon.
  2. This week is looking to be one of the biggest weeks in recent history for PSN, as a slew of older hits are slated to arrive tomorrow; the biggest of which are Bayonetta and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Bayonetta is one of Platinum Games' most unique action games in recent years while Vice City is a hit, open-world, action game from Rockstar that originally debuted on the PS2 and is considered to be the best entry in the GTA series by many Playstation fans. In addition, Call of Duty: Black Ops II makes its debut on the store alongside the second, third, and fourth Hitman games; Zone of the Enders HD Collection; and a few others, including Let's Fish! Hooked On for the PS Vita. You can check out the full list of games below. PSN Releases for January 29, 2013 PS3 Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Bayonetta Hitman: Blood Money Hitman: Contracts Hitman 2: Silent Assassin Zone of the Enders HD Collection Air Conflicts: Secret Wars Playstation Move Heavy Fire: Shattered Spear PS Vita Let's Fish! Hooked On PS2 Classics Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Demos Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PS3 and Vita) -------------- Source: Playstation Blog Will you be buying any of these games? Let us know!
  3. Although it had already been rumored for a while, today everything pretty much became solidified for the reality of a Hitman HD collection. The game cropped up on Amazon and even had its Achievement listings sent out to Xbox360Achievements (PS3 Trophies were discovered earlier). This is probably the best time as any for this set to come out as Hitman: Absolution recently launched. Hitman Trilogy HD will include the following three games: Hitman: Contracts, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, and Hitman: Blood Money. This collection only misses Hitman: Codename 47, which was the first game in the series. Funnily enough, the Hitman Triple Pack which hit PS2s also was free of that game, although certainly not in HD. The likely reason for continuously omitting the first game is that it was a PC exclusive. This collection will be available for both 360 and PS3. The price is set at $40 on the listing, which is on par with other HD collections. Then there is the possible date of January 29th. It seems pretty close considering Square Enix has not announced anything officially, but then again, it could be a simple placeholder.
  4. While the masses of the United States were busy elbowing each other in the throats for a chance to save ten dollars on games like Dishonored, Assassin's Creed 3 and Call of Duty, the sensational Croatian Playstation Store was having a Black Friday sale of it's own. The reason it wasn't really advertised was because the Croatian PSN staff weren't actually aware of this sale themselves. Nope, this sale was entirely on accident. Accidents do happen, but they don't usually save people so much money. How much money did people save? Well let's take a look. The brand spanking new release of Hitman: Absolution and Sleeping Dogs costs just around $80 on the United States Playstation Store. The Croatian store had the price set at 80KN. While that might sound like an equally large number, it roughly translates to $13 American. A considerably not big number. What followed next was less than handled well. People saw the huge change in price and immediately started scooping up as many accounts as they could to sell later on the PSN black market. The Croatian Sony reacted by removing the ability to purchase PSN funds in an attempt to stop people from buying so many copies while they fixed the problem. Yeah, not exactly the best way to handle such a serious mistake. But now everything is back to normal and you totally missed out. Hurray for errors!
  5. With the troubles that recently swarmed around cloud gaming service OnLive, it didn't seem like we would be seeing a new one so soon. However, it looks like Square Enix is ready to take on the streaming world alongside company Hapti.co to launch the service CoreOnline. CoreOnline is for PC gamers and lets you play games through your browser. There are only a couple games available now but they can be played in fullscreen and apparently in HD. The site supports Chrome, FireFox, and Internet Explorer, although before playing anything you must install the Square Enix Secure Launcher. Once that's done then you have a little more to deal with. You see, one of the biggest features of CoreOnline is that the library of games is free to play. Well, they're free as long as you can stand to watch some ads. When starting up a game you're granted 10 minutes of play but after that must select an ad to watch. Once that's done you can return to play for a while until it's time for another ad. Watching a tiny commercial grants you fewer minutes, while watching longer ones will award a fair bit more time. One unfortunate thing about the timer though is that it will count down even if you're in a loading screen. On the other hand, if you navigate away from the screen it will pause the game and not have the timer ticking away until you return. What if you don't want to have to be taken out of the game every so often? It's possible to buy access to specific levels or even the entire game. For example, one level in Hitman: Blood Money is 49 cents. So far there are only three games available and they are Hitman: Blood Money, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and Mini Ninjas. Their next additions are set to be Gyromancer and Tomb Raider Underworld. Would you play games with commercial breaks in between?
