    Here's what the latest Xbox Live service alert does say: "Thanks for your patience during this time. We'll provide an update for you as soon as we can." And here's what it doesn't, but should, say: "Brethren! There has been a Great Disturbance in the Farce, but our Mighty Creator-Engineers have taken up their Pistons of Ineffability, and will shortly wreak a terrible vengeance on the instigators of this offence." Sigh, QA representatives just don't seem to put their hearts into things these days. The alert may stop you doing one or ...

    Jamie Fristrom launched Sixty Second Shooter Prime on Xbox One last month, selling it for $5 a pop. Prime is the latest version of Sixty Second Shooter, his game that first launched on the Chrome Web Store and later on PS4 and Vita. To bring Sixty Second Shooter Prime to Xbox One, Fristrom had to spend $5,143 on equipment, permissions and insurance. Fristrom breaks down the costs in a blog post: Microsoft provides Xbox One dev kits to early adopters of the ID@Xbox program, so those were free, but Fristrom ...

    According to a new tweet from the official Watch Dogs Twitter account, Camden, New Jersey was the most crime-ridden US city in 2012. That's not at all true, but it's apparently a solid enough fiction for a DLC tease. "Our data indicates surveillance has become more prominent in high-crime areas," the account states before linking to the above infographic. First, let's debunk that core claim. Depending on how you categorize crime, the dubious honor of highest US crime rates in 2012 would go to either Detroit or St. Louis. ...

    The Destiny beta was a beast, with Activision announcing today that 4,638,937 players participated in the early access stress test of the game launching September 9. "Hosting a beta at this scale is an incredible feat, so we're thrilled to see the phenomenal response. But the beta is just a taste of what's to come," said Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg. "This is the biggest beta of this console generation by a wide margin and the largest console beta ever for a new video game IP to date. ...

    A new trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition doesn't offer new info on the game's combat, but it's encouraging to see BioWare focus on the level of strategy offered by its real-time-with-pausing system. As you probably already know, BioWare's upcoming RPG is now due on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 18. What you may not know is there's also a delay to Dragon Age Keep, the tool that will let you set up story choices from previous Dragon Ages to carry over in Inquisition. As explained on the BioWare blog ...

    Question: When is a video game remake not a remake? Answer: When it adds enough new ideas and tweaks existing content so that the resulting product is neither a re-hash nor a re-imagining. When it doesn't stop at HD textures and smoother character models, and instead opts for new gameplay, expanded objectives and modern conveniences.When is a remake not a remake?

EA plans to add to this selection of games over time, and according to a Game Informer tweet, the publisher has "no plans" to remove content in the future ...

    Respawn has released the full patch notes for the next Titanfall update, which should materialise on Xbox One before 31st July - the release date for the game's next DLC pack, Frontier's Edge. The update adds support for the Black Market and purchaseable Burn Cards plus new Daily Challenges and a message for when a friendly flag carrier is riding your Titan. It'll also move Campaign Multiplayer in amongst the other multiplayer modes, where it will rotate continually through the maps - this should make it a bit easier ...

    Ubisoft takes players to a grittier side of the Trials universe today in "Riders of the Rustlands," the first of six planned Season Pass DLC packs planned for Trials Fusion. Riders of the Rustlands takes place in a wasteland outside of the squeaky-clean cityscapes featured Trials Fusion's core content, challenging riders with level layouts made up of makeshift metal platforms and rusty abandoned structures. The pack introduces six new Classic Trials tracks, two Supercross levels, one Skill Game, and one FMX track, along ...

    "Huzzah! An MMO PC-port confirmed for Xbox One!" I hear you exclaim. Indeed; though approach with caution, brave traveller, as the news comes with a number of caveats. First, it has thus far only been confirmed for Xbox One's Chinese market as a launch title for the region on 23rd September. Actually, that's kind of the only caveat until we hear more. The news was confirmed by publisher Perfect World, via the biggest Chinese console forum, A9VG. The company is also inviting a small group of Chinese gamers to join an ...

    In theory, betas exist so that developers can test out all of a game's core features prior to a final round of iteration and tweaking. In practice, the emphasis seems often to be on putting servers through their paces, rather than making alterations to things like level design, combat mechanics and so forth. Just how much can Bungie reasonably change, then, at this stage in Destiny's production schedule? Well, there appears at least to be scope to fiddle around with voice chat. "We've seen the feedback, and there's quite a bit of ...

Notice their cast-iron imperviousness to whimsy, to anything save the coldest and most calculating of commercial sentiments. It's like staring at the Superbowl licensing down one side of a Predator drone, just before it puts a missile through your patio. All these are Gold exclusive as ever.

    Bandai Namco confirmed it's bringing Shadow Warrior to PS4 and Xbox One in Europe on September 26. Majesco's not yet announced a US date beyond "late September," but GameStop's listing of September 23 tallies with the typical three-day gap between regions. Described as a "bold re-imagining" of 3D Realms' 1997 shooter, the new Shadow Warrior hit PC around the same time last year. It retained a few Lo Wang jokes but toned down the stereotyping, delivering a more modern mix of first-person shooting ...

    Before the newest, shiniest consoles launched late last year, it was the Xbox One that was touted as the complete multimedia machine. It's slightly ironic, then, that Sony's beaten Microsoft to the punch in adding Blu-ray 3D support to the PlayStation 4. Last week, we heard the feature was being added in software version 1.75, and today that update's begun rolling out to PS4s. There are still a few things, like DLNA support, the PS4 needs to usurp other A/V gear in your entertainment center, but on the matter of Blu-ray ...

    I'm not sure I could pick a favourite between Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Drax and Star-Lord, but at least with the new Guardians of the Glaaxy skin pack for Minecraft, I won't have to. Lookit how adorable their little cuboid faces are. Marvel editor Ben Morse tweeted the news a few days ago, along with an image of the main character skins. There's not mention of when exactly the skins would be released, but the film opens this Friday, so I'd imagine it wouldn't be too long after that. Is it insufferably nerdy to say that the fact Rocket ...

    Space, as Douglas Adams once wrote, is "vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big", and so by logical extension is Destiny, Bungie's latest interplanetary adventure. You might think otherwise, admittedly, if you limit your investigation to this Reddit thread, which reveals that there will be "only" one explorable area per planet. Posting on NeoGAF, the developer's Eric "Urk" Osborne reassured beta players that the full game is packed with things to see and do. "Destiny's pretty big," he wrote. "It's the biggest game we've ever made ...

    Watch Dogs continues to rise above the summer drought, notching its sixth week in total as the British No. 1. Again, there's not one new release in the UK top 40, so it's not shocking to see the country's games market drop another three percent in revenue this week. The Last of Us: Remastered should reinvigorate the market, but until then we're staving off the tumbleweeds with more music below the break. This week, we're honoring Watch Dogs' achievement with a 1969 rock track that featured memorably in British gangster ...
