Gaming News General

This thread is for posting games industry news in a neutral context.

If you have any news that you don't think is thread worthy, and don't want it tagged with a silly life/death of gaming connotation, post it here. It can be anything: game annoucements, game people, game places, game companies, game videos, etc.

This doesn't bar you from making a dedicated thread for said news. If it's a minor story or something maybe only you are interested in, though, it is probably better not to clutter up the forum with threads.

Sources are important. Always post them.

TL;DR - Neutral game news posting thread

I guess that means he'll still be around, but with more direction from Iwata?

Re: Gaming News General

Square Enix has reported their final results for the fiscal year ended 3/31/2013.

Investors slides
Press release

In short, a 13.7 billion yen net income loss, attributed mostly to missed sales targets in USA and Europe.

Judging from the material, their plan going forward seems to be increased focus on mobile software (surprise surprise oh noes) and a retargeting of investment resources for efficiency (i.e. not sitting on developing projects for years) as mentioned in their profit revision forecast earlier this year.

Ubisoft has released their financial results for fiscal year ending 2013. Generally positive for them.

Investors slides

Some tidbits...

Brand sales for this generation of consoles (Wii/ps3/360)

Industry best selling titles for 2012

Ubisoft expects very positive growth in the upcoming new console cycle.

Re: Gaming News General

Budget mismanagement and astoundingly unrealistic sales targets are more the reason for Square Enix's current financial troubles.

Re: Gaming News General

SE's major western issue is that JRPGs aren't nearly as big as they once were. While the JRPG market has shrunk their budgets for such games has inflated.

Maybe the mobile market is what's best for them so long as they stop attempting to sell $20 games on the Android/iOS market.

@Steven: I hope Nintendo doesn't. While I like both companies I don't think Nintendo would be a good influence on Atlus. I would prefer it fall into the hands of someone more laissez-faire.

Fair enough, I just want to make sure the games continue to show up on the 3DS.

Re: Gaming News General

Massive Fire at SK Hynix Facility in Wuxi, China | techPowerUp

Huge fire at a NAND flash memory and DRAM factory.




"With the latest estimates placing Hynix somewhere around 30% of the world’s DRAM production – for Hynix to lose half its capacity in seconds is about as serious as it gets in the technology market."

Pretty bad. There will be a huge chain reaction of supply issues, leading to price increases on almost everything memory related.

This is similar to the Thailand flooding of hard drive factories a few years ago. If you're in the market for PC parts, buy them NOW (SSDs, RAM, and graphics cards in particular), before price increases take effect, if they haven't already.

I wonder if this will make the PS4 and XB1 rise in price at all. Internal storage is a pretty core component of XB1, if I understand correctly.

Re: Gaming News General

Regarding the PS4/X1, we don't know where they're sourcing the parts from. If they are from Hynix then the parts' costs would almost certainly be locked under a contract, giving them priority on parts deliveries, at the expense of everyone else.

In the worst case scenario, there simply aren't enough memory chips to go around, at that point it simply becomes "Too bad" for everyone involved. Memory chips aren't grown from the ground, it takes 4-6 weeks for the complete process, and cutting edge fab plants are hella expensive, billions of USD.

UPDATE 1-Hynix says fire did not cripple China chip-making plant | Reuters

Looks like the fire missed the clean room. Definitely not a worst case scenario here.

"After an initial assessment, the world's No. 2 maker of dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips said it found no "material" damage to fabrication gear in its clean room at the plant, which produces around 12 to 15 percent of global computer memory chips."

All in one room. Yikes. I'd say they (and everyone else buying parts) are very lucky.

Re: Gaming News General

Sega Sammy Holdings Inc. has purchased Index Corporation.

Official Press Release

Quote:
Index has achieved an excellent track record in the design and development of content for mobile phones. On the development of home video game software, the company owns a number of prominent IPs, namely the “ATLUS” brand titles of “Megami Tensei” series, “Persona” series and “Etrian Odyssey” series among others.

...
The Company believes that transfer of Index’s operations to SEGA will create synergies, on the grounds that the deal will enable the Company to (1) gain access to prominent IPs in the home video game software, through which the Company can expect to achieve steady flows of revenue; (2) expect further facilitation of revenue growth for the PC Online Game Business and Content Business for Smart Devices operated by SEGA and SEGA Networks Co., Ltd. by exploiting acquired prominent IPs and (3) maximize the value of acquired IPs by effectively deploying them in the Pachislot and Pachinko Machines segment, Amusement Machine Sales and Amusement Center Operations segments.
Seahawk's initial impression:
( Click to show/hide )

Pack it up and go home. Atlus properties are done outside of JP.
