The Order: 1886
In what could be a first for a game, the upcoming PS4 exclusive game "The Order: 1886" is trying to be as cinematic as possible - which means 30fps and 1080p image, but with an aspect ratio of 2.4:1 like most major movies (effectively 1920x800 resolution).
This has caused an outcry from hardcore 1.78:1 1080p 60fps only fanboys which the developers have had to responded to. One upside to the seeming downscaling is that the image quality itself is expected to be stellar with 4x multi-sampling anti-aliasing - a costly feature that stresses even powerful PC hardware systems.
The results will be seen when the first gameplay trailer is released in coming weeks. [Source: Examiner]

Batman Arkham Origins
Warner Bros. Montreal has insisted that bugs with "Batman: Arkham Origins" are going to stay. Community manager Mercury released the following statement on the company's official forum:
"The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums. If we do move forward with creating a new patch, it will try to address the progression blocking bugs for players, not the minor glitches that do not prevent one from continuing to play. The issues that are not progression blockers will unfortunately no longer be addressed." [Source: Metro]
