Minecraft once again coming to the Oculus Rift?

Back in March when it was announced that Facebook had purchased the Oculus Rift technology the creator of Minecraft, Notch, loaded up his personal blog and went to town against Facebook, Oculus and how Minecraft will now not be ported to the Oculus Rift.

Rumour: Assassin’s Creed Unity only at 720p on PS4

Assassin’s Creed Unity is, without a doubt, one of this year’s biggest releases. Not only is it a soft reboot for the franchise, it’s also our first taste of a true next-generation Assassin’s Creed title. But will it be running at full HD by the time PS4 players we get their hands on it?

Rumour: Xbox One getting another price cut

New generation consoles are expensive. I got one from FNB to make it hurt just a little bit less, but thanks to the two year repayment scheme, it looks like I'll have to wait a while longer before I can get Microsoft's new console. However, it might just be getting a bit easier to buy it in cash.

Gigabyte’s GTX 880 G1 releasing early October

It's been very quiet on Nvidia's GPU front for a while now. Manufacturers have been coming up with all sorts of ways to resell the 700-series chips while Nvidia tinkers away with their next big release. Maxwell is set to hit desktops later this year, and Gigabyte already have a name (and release window) for theirs.

Wild Rumour: August PlayStation Plus content leaked?

Next month, Microsoft is actually giving away some pretty decent games through its Games for Gold service – with the highlight undoubtedly being Arkane’s rather excellent Dishonored.  PlayStation Plus, meanwhile, has subjectively been getting worse and worse with each month. Will August make up for the previous few months of mediocrity?

Xbox EMEA team slashed?

You know how I told you that Microsoft was canning a bunch of people? Well, when the numbers came out, they were staggering; 18 000 people have lost their jobs. Most come from Nokia thanks to the merger, but it seems the Xbox team is also suffering.

The Last Guardian is/isn’t cancelled

Over the weekend some websites got very excited about a rumour that The Last Guardian had been cancelled by the management of Sony.

The Last Guardian pops up on Amazon

I don’t know if I’m alone with this but The Last Guardian is starting to feel a bit like Duke Nukem Forever. Full of early promise but it has now been in development for 7 full years and is already 3 years past its first official planned release date.

The Order: 1886 delayed until February?

The Order: 1886 is one of my more anticipated games. It looks stunning, and I'm a sucker for that Steam/Diesel Punk aesthetic. However, we might not be getting it when everyone was hoping.

Rumour: Xbox to drop gold requirements for media apps

If you are a current Xbox 360 or Xbox One gamer you would know that not only do you need Xbox Live Gold to play games online but that you also need it to use any media aservices such as YouTube or any of the other assorted media applications.

Rumour: EA’s South African distribution changing…again

For a long time, EA’s games in South Africa were the cheapest you’d find. Very nearly a year ago, we told you that would be changing – and that EA South Africa’s office would be shutting. Distribution of our EA games then moved on to Apex. Less than 12 months later, and it could be changing again.

Will Sony release Drive Club at E3?

Last year Sony released The Last of Us a day after E3 ended and that game took the world by storm and won many Game of the Year titles. Granted that’s more to do with the game being incredible rather than its release date but that doesn’t mean the release date was a bad idea.

Rumour: Azure servers coming to SA?

Oh, what a sad day it was when we found out that we weren't getting Titanfall in South Africa. The only country in the world where Titanfall was pulled, and it was primarily due to our poor infrastructure (among other reasons). Well, maybe it will release here after all - Azure servers are rumoured to be on the way.

Will Microsoft drop the Kinect? Absolutely not.

Microsoft recently announced that they are going to be making the biggest announcement since that meteor hit the planet a while back. This announcement is going to be made at E3 but what could it be?

Dishonored 2 E3 fact sheet paints a pretty ID Tech 5 picture

I can’t see Dishonored not getting a sequel. The game was well received, Bethesda saw the chance to craft a new money-making universe and there’s a bunch of disappointed Thief gamers right now who would embrace it with open arms. Is it coming? Well here’s some more evidence to lend credence to the first rumour.
