Sony letting PlayStation Plus members vote on which “free games” the service will add
This is pretty dope news, though not without its understandable caveats. Sony is going to let PS+ members vote on which games they get for free, at regular intervals throughout the year. However — it won’t be monthly. Double However, it will be from a list curated by Sony. Obviously.
Sony Exec: PlayStation 4 has 70% to 90% of Europe’s console market
Sony doing serious fucking work in the European console market!
Nintendo dropping new ‘3DS XL’ next month
I’ve been circling the purchase of a Nintendo 3DS for a while now. Haven’t been able to bring myself to launch the money-missiles from my wallet-banks, but maybe next month will be the time. The Company Mario Built is dropping a new one, and it’s supposed to be like, way nice or something.
‘Saints Row’ creative director peacing out for Valve
Saints Row is losing its creative director. Irreverent, offensive, Smartest Dumb Game In The Room. Saints Row is like me in video game form. And I imagine a lot of the game’s vibe is due to Jaros, the aforementioned director.
‘Grand Theft Auto 5’ hitting XB1 & PS4 on Nov 18. PC, uh, next year
Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the releases I’m anticipating most this Fall for Gen8 consoles. Such is the state of the console generation at this point. Remasters and third-party titles not exclusive to this generation. But let me stop myself, lest I complain too much. Because I am very excited for this title, which I never got to play last year.

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ dropping June 2, 2015. Holy Bat-Delay
We all knew that Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed until next year. But then came the rumor that it was going to drop in January. Which okay sure is 2015, but it ain’t the end of the world. Well, guess the fuck what. That rumor is as true as Justice and Everlasting Peace. A fucking pipe dream. Bat-Guy: Arkham Night ain’t dropping until the middle of next year.
Microsoft all like, “Wanna buy Xbox Entertainment Studios”?
Last month, Microsoft killed Xbox Entertainment Studios. This month, it seems like they’re trying to pawn the dead-not-dead original programming company off onto an
sucker interested party. So far, that sucker interested party seems to be Warner Bros.
Well Then: The next ‘Tomb Raider’ is an Xbox Exclusive~
Rise of the Tomb Raider is only going to be rolling up on Xbox consoles, and man I can only imagine the staggering amount of cash Microsoft threw around to procure this exclusive. And I wonder if this is a timed exclusive, or an outright? None the less. This is one of those times that I’m glad I’m a materialistic, completionist, Day 1 whore.
‘World of Warcraft’ players dropped by nearly 1 Milli in three months
Why! Just today I woke up and was contemplating whether or not I was going to buy Warlords of Dra..Draenor (?). I mean — I also contemplated whether or not I wanted to masturbate before I drank my first energy drink, so it isn’t like it was some in-depth shit. But anyways, it appears that World of Warcraft is understandably shedding players as the game continues to age. But like me, will these folk return for the new expansion? Are they just pooped? Are they playing Wildstar?
PlayStation whuppin’ continues, outsells Xbox 3:1 in Q1 2014
Now fucking listen! I own both the DelayStation 4 (LOL I HATE MYSELF FOR PUNS) and the XBONE (I STILL HATE MYSELF), so I have no real vested interest in the console wars. Actually, maybe I want really healthy competition so both companies push themselves. That said — and I don’t know why — I do enjoy watching Sony continuing to roll Microsoft by their fucking ears. (And for those of you who want to point this out, I realize Sony doesn’t differentiate between PS3 and PS4 sales.)
