Midlife Gamer Prediction League – August 2014

July 30th, 2014 by

Prediction League 200-200A break from games conferences, a break from game releases (in the main) and a series of “me too” announcements in system updates. These last few weeks awaiting the Plus and Gold announcements seems to have taken forever.

After what feels much longer than four weeks both Microsoft and Sony return with their latest installment of “freebies”.

Somebody in Microsoft seems to have had a lightbulb moment when it comes to deciding which titles to select for the promotion this month as we return to two titles for the Xbox One and a much loved title for the 360 to be complimented by a little bit of an unknown title (the unknowns are what have given me personally more enjoyment over the last 12 months)

Xbox One – Crimson Dragon & Strike Suit Zero

Xbox 360 – Motocross Madnesss & Dishonored

Sony promised an “eclectic” mix of titles for the August installment of Plus and they have certainly delivered that with their selections. A quick browse at the internet however and it seems like we have a few “because the internet” moments with their choices. I will call it now and say that, because of a little bit of a backlash on these titles coupled with the fact that Sony have promised that a large number of PlayStation 4 titles launch titles will be included in the summer sale, we will see a launch title being one of the PlayStation 4 titles next month.

PlayStation 4 – Road Not Taken & Fez
PlayStation 3 – Crysis 3 & Proteus
PlayStation Vita – Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7 & Metrico

Head over to the Midlife Gamer Forum and place your predictions for the next games to be announced and maybe you will feature in the Midlife Gamer Prediction League. With a prize for the winner (currently 12 months Gold Subscription donated by Microsoft and some extra prizes donated by us) you would be mad not to take part. Alternatively why not leave your predictions in the comments of this article. To aid you in your predictions, Community Manager Adamski has created a graph detailing the time frames that  have been utilised thus far.

With the league updated this is an opportunity to announce that if someone predicts a title for a particular format in PlayStation Plus they will get the points for that title on other formats IF, and only IF, the title is cross buy. For example if someone predicted Sly Cooper for the Vita, although it was announced as a PS3 game, it is cross buy so that person would get the full 5 points. As you can see we at Midlife Gamer are still pretty bad at predicting what is coming next in these programmes so why not get involved so and join in over at the Midlife Gamer Forum and place your predictions you never know you may just catch us up.
