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.

Fallout 4 may still be real, set in Boston

It hasn’t been a fun couple of weeks for Fallout fans. With the Spike VGX awards coming up, many thought that Bethesda would be showing off a PS4 and Xbox One version of Fallout 4, something bolstered by a mysterious website. That turned out to be a hoax. But Fallout 4 may still be alive, and it could be set somewhere wicked awesome.

Rumor: Xbox One reaching delayed regions Q3 2014 – SA 2015?

Remember when Microsoft was also going to launch the Xbox One in countries such as Russia, Scandinavia and the Benelux area? Well, it appears that they may be waiting even longer for the console - but what does that mean for us?

Apparently the PS4 won’t overheat

We’ve heard previous rumours about the PlayStation 4 possible suffering from overheating and while all these rumours have been unsubstantiated the guys over at Dualshockers decided it was a good idea to approach a developer and ask them about the rumours.

Did a retailer just leak The Last of Us 2?

A popular Swedish retailer may have let the proverbial cat out of the bag by putting up a page to accept pre-orders for The Last of Us 2 by Naughty Dog.

Is Call of Duty: Ghosts only 4 hours long?

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches tomorrow… yes we are one day away from entering a new era in Call of Duty and obviously that means the rumour mill is going insane. The latest rumour this morning is that the Call of Duty: Ghosts single player campaign is only 4 hours long.
