Microsoft Ditch Xbox One 24 Hour Check in, Trade Limitations

Microsoft have had a lot of frank feedback over the last few weeks, and it seems they've decided to act on it. They've announced this evening that they're ditching almost everything that was previously announced for the Xbox One, good and bad. While the 24 hour check in and trade limitations are no longer going to be a part of the system, they're also getting rid of the family sharing, digital selling and trading.

PS4 Online Blocked for Countries Without a Store

PlayStation Plus isn't available everywhere, and neither is the PlayStation Store, and although Sony has made every effort to roll features out to every country interested, it's not always possible. Up until recently, this has been a minor inconvenience, a barrier that blocks some people from taking advantage of free games, digital purchases and cloud saves. What about for the PS4 though? It's today been confirmed that unless you have access to a PlayStation Store in your region, you won't be able to play online on Sony's next-gen console.

Fable 3 is free on Xbox Market

To kick off their new program for Xbox Live Gold members, Fable 3 is currently free to download in the Xbox Live marketplace.

PS+ Content For July (And August?)

Sony have announced the content that will be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers in July. It's a great mix of some top games, things that are definitely going to help you prepare for a few big upcoming titles. Although you'll need to enjoy shooters to really get the most out of this month, the inclusion of Battlefield 3, Payday: The Heist and Saints Row the Third is sure to be enough to justify this month's pay. That's an awful lot for an awful little.

XCOM for iOS releases 6/20 for $19.99

Well, that didn't take long. After announcing an iOS version of their award-winning strategy title earlier this spring, Firaxis Games wasted no time optimizing XCOM: Enemy Unknown for the touch screen: on Monday they announced the game would hit the App Store this Thursday for $19.99. That's right, the full XCOM experience (save for DLC, though Firaxis could always release this later as an in-app purchase) will launch for $10-20 cheaper than most retailers currently sell the console/PC version.

Being Black in Animal Crossing is Hard Work

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is largely a game about leaving an impression. Whether you're creating your town in the sometimes dull single player or if you're visiting friends to see how they've built up their world, you can do so with a personality and charm that you yourself have created. In many ways, you can be whatever you want to be in New Leaf, unless you want to be black. Then your only option is to tan, tan, tan.

The Last of Us Rocks its First Weekend

The Last of Us has had a great first weekend, proving beyond a doubt that Sony's latest has at least hit home with its biggest fans. Although no specific sales data has been released, it did make it to the top of the all-format charts (knocking GRID 2 from its high point) and is thought to be the highest grossing new IP since L.A. Noire, which released in 2011. It's also the first Sony published game to reach the top spot since Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

No DLC Planned for Super Mario 3D World

Nintendo has been pushing New Super Luigi U in several of their Nintendo Directs and with good reason. Although it's more akin to a new game than a piece of DLC, they've basically done what people have been asking for since DLC became a thing: they're building an expansion where they could have simply added an extra character or a few new levels. How that will work out for them is yet to be seen, but it seems even Nintendo will be holding out on seeing the results before further venturing into the world of downloadable content.
