Next-Gen Tomb Raider “well into development”

blank The next Tomb Raider game (Tomb Raider 2 presumably, although it seems a little late in the day for that) is already "well into development" and will be available for next-generation consoles.

blank Watch Dogs is a game that you'll want to have connected at all times, Ubisoft has revealed.

Microsoft Clarify Family Sharing, Wasn’t Only Demos

blank There was a post made on PasteBin by an apparent Microsoft employee, a post that said that Family Sharing was just a glorified way of sharing demos. This would have not only been annoying to those who liked the sound of the feature, but it would have meant that Microsoft were flat out lying about something they were advertising.
