Persona 5 Director Offers More Details On The Recent Trailer

Persona 5's first substantial trailer premiered earlier this week, and producer and director Katsura Hashino offered some deeper insight into what to expect from the game.

Posting on the Japanese Persona website, Hashino pre-wrote a statement before the trailer went live and shared some of his fear about waiting to hear what the fans would have to say. You can find the full translation of Hashino's message on Siliconera, but here are a pair of the highlights:

This time, it’s about a group of high school students that are being “chased” by unexpected occurrences due to the justice they believe in. We’re writing [the story] to convey a thrilling everyday life in the shoes of these characters, that are as large as life, in this juvenile school setting.

We may feel some sort of suffocation in this world today, but as long as the world is comprised of relationships among humans, it is a person’s character, or a group’s character, that will provide the ‘power’ to destroy that ‘feeling of entrapment’.

You can check out the trailer for the game below, which is planned for release some time this year on PlayStation 3 and 4.

Microsoft Details The Xbox One February 2015 Update

Xbox Live's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has a preview of what to expect from the upcoming Xbox One February update.

Xbox One preview program members can start using the latest update immediately, though it's unclear exactly when it will be available for everyone.

You can find the full list of updates on Major Nelson's blog, but some highlights include transparent tiles to better view the new customizable backgrounds. Every game also now has its own hub which lets you compare your progress to friends more easily, see who the top players and streamers of that particular game are. You can also start a game with snapped apps like Achievements right from the beginning. You can check out the preview video below.

Our Take
None of the these updates are particularly big, or address the generally difficult to navigate user interface. Clear tiles to better view background images is a nice touch, though.

Planetside 2 Beta Coming In January, Details Available In The New Year

According to Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley, it may not be too much longer before PlayStation 4 owners can dive into Planetside 2. The massive shooter is long overdue, and was originally slated for release in early 2014.

Smedley shared the news via Twitter with a fan inquiring about the release plans. 

Planetside 2 will join Sony Online’s DC Universe Online, Warframe, Blacklight Retribution, and Loadout as a free to play offering on the PlayStation 4. For more on Planetside 2, you can check out an interview with former senior art director Trammell Isaac (now with Cliff Bleszinski’s Boss Key studio) about sharing revenues with players who create cosmetic items. You can also find out more about signing up for the beta here.

Our Take
Planetside 2’s arrival on PlayStation 4 could be a big revenue generator for Sony Online and for longtime PC players. The Player Studio items will become available for console players, meaning new eyeballs on even older cosmetic goods. If successful on console, Player Studio could herald a new wave of player entrepreneurs on console.

Halo 5: Guardians Limited Editions Announced, Few Details Beyond Price Offered

Microsoft and 343 Industries have announced three different versions of Halo 5: Guardians. In addition to the standard version that includes the game alone, there are two higher-priced editions with added digital and physical content.

The Limited Edition ($ 99.99) includes digital content to “enhance Spartan combat” and “exclusive items.” The game will come in a steelbook case instead of the regular green plastic one.

The Limited Collector’s Edition ($ 249.99) includes everything in the Limited Edition plus another, as yet unrevealed physical item. 343 Industries is designing a numbered statue that will be included in this set.

Today at 9 a.m. Pacific / 12 p.m. Eastern marks the start of the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta. Any items unlocked for the beta from watching Halo: Nightfall or playing Halo: The Master Chief Collection will carry forward to Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer when that title is released in fall 2015.

For more on the beta unlocks, check out our previous coverage. You can also read our hands-on impressions of the beta content.

 

Our Take
I’m starting to get numb to $ 249.99 collector’s editions, but this one is going to sting Halo fans. If you want it, you’ll need to pre-order it fast, because it’s likely to be in limited numbers. 

Unfortunately, right now you have absolutely no idea what you’re getting for that amount. If you have any interest whatsoever, you might want to pre-order and then cancel if you don’t like the contents. I am not at all a fan of announcements like this that carry heavy price tags and absolutely no other information.
