  • Bethesda Gave Fallout 76 Canvas Bags to Influencers, But Not to Paying Customers

    Two days ago, we reported on the story that Bethesda pulled a bait-and-switch when it came to delivering a canvas bag to fans that spent $200 for Fallout 76's Power Armor Edition. As you recall, they were instead given a nylon bag and not the canvas bag that is still being advertised at retailers like Amazon and GameStop.

    Yesterday, we reported on how Bethesda's compensation was meager, at best. They offered up $5 of in-game currency that can be used to maybe buy a door and some plants.

    And now today comes word that Bethesda provided influencers with a canvas bag ahead of Fallout 76's launch. Sure, it's not the canvas bag that is still...

  • Fallout 76's $200 Edition Promised Canvas Bag is a Real Stinker

    Fallout 76's $200 Edition Promised Canvas Bag is a Real Stinker

    The $200 Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76 promised to include a "Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag" in addition to some other neat gear like a wearable Power Armor helmet, map, and more. The problem is that consumers that spent the $200 for this Power Armor Edition ended up getting little more than a trash bag instead of the fancy canvas one they were promised.

    What fans actually received for their monetary show of support was a cheap nylon bag. This is, obviously, not the one that was advertised....

    Advertising Standards Investigating No Man's Sky for False Advertising

    The UK watchdog group known as the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) have revealed that they are launching an investigation into No Man's Sky. The group has confirmed that they are launching an investigation after receiving "several complaints" about false advertising.

    Interestingly, Valve is also involved in this due to the content of No Man's Sky as it appears on their Steam Store listing. A posting on Reddit details some of what the ASA is taking a look at.
    In the ASA response, they say that both Hello Games and Valve have a joint responsibility, and so both organisations have now been contacted by the ASA and have been told to respond to the following issues which the ASA picked out as the primary issues (compiled

    Sony to Give Early Vita Customers a Small Refund Over Deceptive Ads

    The FTC and Sony have come to a settlement over claims that Sony has not delivered on at least one of its promises during the early days of PlayStation Vita advertising. According to the early ads, Sony claimed that consumers could keep playing their PlayStation 3 titles on their Vita with "Cross Platform Gaming." Sony claimed that you could play a game on the PS3, pause it, and then pick up where you left off on your Vita. Well, you couldn't really do that except with some games that were designed with that functionality in mind. Even more, there are claims that Sony's promise of this Cross Platform Gaming led some to purchase the more expensive 3G version of the Vita in order to play the...

    Sony is Being Sued Over Killzone: Shadow Fall's Graphics

    Sony is being hit with a lawsuit for "deceptive marketing" of Killzone: Shadow Fall because the game's multiplayer mode isn't a "true" 1080p resolution. Douglas Ladore from California, filed the suit in the Northern District California court. He says that Sony advertised that the game runs at a native 1080p resolution but it "used a technological shortcut that was supposed to provide 'subjectively similar' results." See, what Killzone does for the multiplayer component is render each frame at 960 by 1080 resolution with a "temporal upscale." On the next frame, the lines that were "blank" in the previous frame are rendered, also at 960 by 1080. So it's still technically rendering at 1920x1080, just not all in the same frame. The lawsuit says that Sony falsely advertised...
