343 Industries Developer Moves to EA Visceral

It has become known via Twitter announcement earlier today that the lead project director from Halo 4 Scott Warner is leaving 343 Industries to continue his career with EA Visceral. This is good news for EA Visceral because Warner has quite a resume working with previous game development companies such as Pandemic Studios and  Black Isle Studios. The most well known recent product released from EA Visceral was Dead Space 3 which was released earlier in the year with good reviews despite failing to meet projected sales by EA. The big upcoming project from Visceral is a new Star Wars game that is in no way connected to the DICE studios revival of the Star Wars Battlefront series that is under development for the new generation of consoles running on the Frostbite 3 engine. Hopefully Mr. Warner finds his move to EA Visceral to be easy and that he continues his illustrious career in producing excellent games that we can enjoy in the coming months and years.

A few weeks ago Sony released a statement telling gamers that the PS4 is capable of being turned on remotely when users use the Playstation app to purchase games. Upon purchasing the game the PS4 will turn on remotely and begin your download in order to allow the gamer to play their new purchase when they arrive home. This news was released by Sony President Shuhei Yoshida via Twitter. In addition to this news Sony also confirmed the upcoming consoles ability to support cross platform party chat between the PS4 and the Playstation Vita which is also exciting. Hope that you guys are as excited as I am for all the new features that we will gain access to upon the release of the new generation of consoles. Until then keep on gaming, winning, and having fun!
