E3 Microsoft Conference – ION announced

Announced as coming first to PC and Xbox One via the just announced Game Preview Program, ION; from the creator of “DayZ”, and inspired by the cult favourite “Space Station 13” looks incredible already!

ION is an emergent narrative massively-multiplayer online game in which players will build, live in and inevitably die in huge floating galactic constructions as humanity takes its first steps colonizing the universe.

Technology from Improbable allows ION to have a massive interconnected universe with fully simulated environments such as power grids, air pressure and heat; all to help stave off the unending vacuum of space.

E3 Microsoft Conference – Xbox Elite wireless controller

Microsoft have just announced the Xbox Elite Wireless controller. Think an Xbox Pro gaming pad from the likes of MLG and SCUF, but officially made by the team at Microsoft. From the brief glimpse we saw, the controller comes with custom flipper triggers underneath it, rapid-fire and hair-trigger locks, precision thumbsticks and fully customisable buttons.

This is a serious piece of kit for serious gamers.
