While many of us were far from happy about Microsoft's "acquisition" of Rise of the Tomb Raider, some took it further than others. That's the problem with having such ready access to people via the internet: it's not difficult to hunt them down and attack them when something they're involved with becomes controversial, even if the person being attacked had nothing to do with the decision. That's what happened yesterday with Tomb Raider and Rhianna Pratchett.
This morning various outlets reported on a Game.co.uk-exclusive version of the Master Chief Collection. It comes complete with a statue of the titular hero and cost somewhere in the region of £170. Just a few hours after those stories hit the web, Game have sold out of copies. If you were interested in receiving the statue alongside your limited edition version of the remaster collection, you'd better start searching eBay instead.
Thinking of buying a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One this year? If you happen to be living in the UK, there's a good chance that you're going to get ripped off. It's almost certain that you'll end up paying upwards of £57 more than you would if you bought the console in the United States, and that's before you add tax.
Well, it wasn't hard to see this one coming. Square Enix, after announcing that they'll be bringing Final Fantasy Type-0 westward via the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, have decided to shut down the fan translation of the original game that has been going on for some time and was incredibly near completion. The question isn't why they've done it, but how on earth Square Enix didn't contact them six months ago when the official project began.
After the fanbase-splitting ending to Mass Effect 3, a survey concerning the future of the franchise was always going to bring out people who wanted their opinions heard. While it's hard to envy the guy that has to go through it all over the coming months, one thing is certain: there have been an awful lot of responses.
Early this morning, Bandai Namco and Epic Games announced that Tekken 7 was in development for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Epic games?! That's right, the next Tekken game is being built in Unreal 4, and is said to be using everything that engine offers in order to make a visually stunning, quick-paced fighting title.
2k Games have announced Battleborn, which is described as a next-gen hero-shooter that will be available on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. From Gearbox, the creators of Borderlands, the CGI reveal trailer showed no gameplay, but focused on five different characters all presumably playable that aide each other in battle from an onslaught of seemingly endless enemies.

There are plenty of games that deserve to come to PS4, and chief among them are The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto V. So it's no surprise that those are the titles Sony chose to highlight at their E3 conference earlier this year, but even then, there have been a couple of titles that would be expected to be cross-gen, but which haven't had a mention... until now.
World of Warcraft has "always" been coming to consoles. Since the early days of the 360, somebody knew somebody who knew somebody who had an anonymous source that claimed Blizzard were hard at work on bringing the game to console. This time is slightly different, in that retailer Newegg has published a page with a unique serial number offering Xbox Live gametime for World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor.
