Mojang has confirmed that a playable version of the upcoming Kinect-enhanced Xbox 360 port of Minecraft will be playable at the first annual MineCon next month.
This might just be reason enough for me to invest in a Kinect adapter.
Once again, there’s a rumor circulating that Microsoft plans to release a new Xbox console. Develop has the details but it basically comes down to the fact that Lionhead is working on a Fable title that’s been dubbed Fable Next internally. According to the source who sparked the rumor, the new game can’t possibly run on current-gen consoles.
And there’s a reason for that: it’s a fucking awesome game.
Rocksteady essentially took everything that made Arkham Asylum good – the plot, the dialogue, the controls, and all of the awesome gadgets – and translated it to an open world.
I don’t really know what else to say. It’s as close to perfect as one could ask for. If you need me, I’ll be playing.
Two words: fuck yeah.
In a move that really isn’t too surprising, Hulu’s equity partners have decided to terminate the sale of the popular streaming video service. They released a statement this morning.
Major players like Yahoo, Microsoft, and Google had all expressed their interest in making the acquisition but after the recent Netflix debacle, it’s clear that there’s some real benefit to remaining an independent and ultimately more limber competitor.
Microsoft finalized their acquisition of Skype this morning.
According to the terms of the $8.5 billion deal, Skype CEO Tony Bates will serve as acting president of the new Skype Division of Microsoft, and will report directly to Steve Ballmer.
I don’t normally post preview videos for DLC but Horde mode in Gears of War 3 is one of my favorite things in gaming right now. I had to share this.
Later this month, Microsoft is releasing a 320GB media hard drive for the Xbox 360.
It’s priced at $129.99 and comes with a (somewhat random) bonus – a code that allows you to download a copy of LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.
The November issue of Game Informer will feature artwork from Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, the third Transformers video game from High Moon Studios and Activision.
The game, which is due out in fall of 2012, will be the first from High Moon Studios that won’t be tied to a movie. It will instead focus on the fight between the Autobots and Decepticons that led to the destruction of Cybertron. Here’s hoping it’s as good as the previous two.
