When "Battlefield 4" launches consoles and the PC next month, the DICE-developed shooter will include seven multiplayer modes which have been slowly (almost tortuously) teased out over the last two months. The usual capture and hold and deathmatch-style modes are returning as well as updated objective modes for the the FPS.

With the exception of "Killer Instinct," the next generation is looking a little thin on the fighting game front. However, a Brazilian classification authority listing for "Injustice: Gods Among Us" indicates that a Game of the Year Edition of the Netherrealm-developed fighter will be headed to the Xbox One and PS4 as well as to the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U.

Deep-Down-capcom

The PS4-exclusive "Deep Down" gets stranger and stranger. Capcom first debuted the enigmatic RPG at February's PS4 unveiling, later revealing that the "Dark Souls" competitor was set, in part, in 2094 New York. Now we've learned that "Deep Down" will also be "Free to Play" when it comes to the PS4.

vitatv

Many eyebrows were raised when Sony introduced Vita TV last week. The idea of device that played Vita games on a TV, much like a console, seemed a bit weird at first.

But add in the fact that one could also play PSP, PSone, plus PSN games (don't forget its ability to support the PS4 via Remote Play), as well as stream media, all for just a $99 price point, and you basically have something that goes head to head against the Ouya and Apple TV (and in many ways outshines them both).

Which is why news that it wasn't coming to America was such a big blow to many. Something that took Sony completely off guard.

xbox-one

Those who plan on owning both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, yet have no idea how they'll fit amongst existing hardware (virtually everything connects via HDMI these days, yet most displays only sport a small handful of ports), were all excited by a revelation made during Microsoft's Tokyo Game Show presentation.

MS stated that the Xbox One's HDMI pass-through would support pretty much any kind of device that sends out a video/audio feed via HDMI. Including the PS4.

"The team is still there in SCE Japan Studio, [Fumito] Ueda-san is still there," Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida told Game Informer recently when asked about the status of the long-delayed "The Last Guadian." But don't hold your breath on it: "[We] are still waiting for the time to reintroduce it."

ps4system

In addition to revealing how upcoming PS3 games will be upgraded to their PS4 equivalents, Sony has also addressed how one will be able to play older games on the brand new system as well.

Many assumed that the Gaikai streaming tech that they bought in 2012 would help make it happen, but no official announcement had been made. Until now that is, courtesy of Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida at a TGS roundtable the other day.

Unfortunately, other than the thumbs up that was delivered by IGN, there's not a whole lot to chew on. Though we at least know that a selection of games will be available at launch, which will grow over time.

ps3tops4

Last month we mentioned that Sony themselves will allow their customers to upgrade certain PS3 titles to their PS4 cousins, but we didn't know how. Well, now we do. And as hoped, not only is the upgrade fee nice and cheap, you also get to hold onto the original discs.

Arguably the greatest virtue of the "Battlefield" series of games is the full-scale mayhem of the multiplayer, allowing the open maps of each title to become a collision of ordinance, out of control vehicles, and destruction.

Here's hoping EA and developer DICE can up the ante on this front with the upcoming "Battlefield 4," whose updated multiplayer is detailed in the game's latest trailer.
