We had that wonderful debate last week about the size of games. While the saying goes that it's not the size that counts but how you use it, we all know that size sort of does matter.

At some embargoed events, they will actually take away people's phones to ensure that they don't record what transpires. Someone obviously forgot to do that at a Final Fantasy XV demo session, leading to this leaked video.

I may be a completely rubbish driver in the real world, but when it comes to video games, I’m even more dangerous and unskilled…Wait, that doesn’t sound right. Anyway, if I’m going to be crashing constantly in a racing game, you can be damn well sure that I’ll want to do so with a vehicle that comes with a price tag that makes the Nkandla not-a-compound look like small change in comparison. And Forza Horizon 2 has plenty of those cars available.

EA is known for doing some pretty despicable things over the years. Season Passes, shoe-horned micro-transactions,  Origin and more - like trying to market Dungeon Keeper as a “free to play” game.
