And breaking news-


Microsoft announces a Kinect-less XB1 will be on sale June 9th for $399.


Cue a million critics saying "it took you long enough."

That's actually really quick, considering they're a gigantic corporation.  I wonder if Sony will respond in any way.

Looks like good old fashion Microsoft desperation to me

Farcry 4 is announced for this year. Farcry 3 is my favorite game of 2013 but I'm a little worried that they're going to put it on a one year development cycle and it could end up like COD or Assassins Creed.

This amused me over at Ars Technica in the comment section of their story:

It's going to be a lot harder to listen to customers without microphones in their living rooms.

Star Citizen's first gameplay alpha will be released on the 29th next week.  You can be sure that I will be reporting back with my impressions.  So far it looks like it will be quite awesome.

Ooooh.


Dead Rising 3 is coming to PC this summer.

And with CPU requirements that my 8 month old computer can't hack. Sigh. Not my best purchase.

EA just announced that the guy of the cover of Madden 2015 will be Jay Sherman.

So, this guy?



Oooh. Richard Sherman. Nevermind. At least this means the Seahawks won't be repeating.

IGN May be talking through their hat here. https://twitter.com/RohdeScott/status/475515804067569664

Scott Rhode heads software development for Sony Worldwide, and @yosp is Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony's Worldwide Studios.  So those are pretty high up folks in Sony denying it.
