Welcome to Gamer's Source, a daily news segment with the top five news stories in gaming today. As always, there are opinions and speculation, so feel free to share your own in the comments. Without further ado...
The Xbox One will recieve a price cut in the U.K. Dropping to 400 Euros, the price is still 50 Euros more expensive than the PS4, but a great price cut for the U.K. crowd is much needed as they are paying roughly $50 more than we here in the US. This is great news for Microsoft fans, as they also announced a Titanfall bundle available now.
So Austin Wintory, the composer behind the soundtrack to Journey, composed the entire soundtrack on a $50 keyboard. Speaking with Destructoid, the musician talked about using his keyboard from childhood to compose the Grammy nominated soundtrack. If you have never played Journey or heard the soundtrack, go look it up right now because it is amazing.
The indie darling Papers, Please may see life on Sony's handheld. Creator Lucas Pope spoke with VG247 about his desire to bring the game to the PS Vita, but he can't decide how to do it. As of now, he is the only individual to touch the source code of the game, and though he would like to keep it that way, he is also looking into a developer to port it over. This is good news for PS Vita fans who have yet to play the PC version of the game. Hopefully we get to hear some more news soon.
Despite rumors that have recently been circulating the internet, Assassin's Creed V will not be set in feudal Japan. Ubisoft executive Jade Raymond spoke to Adweek, stating that it will be featured in her favorite time period, but offered no more insight than that. Seeing how annual the franchise has become, I'm sure we will hear about the next iteration soon enough.
