Will PlayStation Backward Compatibility Happen?

Will PlayStation Backward Compatibility Happen?

Although Sony must have thought they’d stole the show with an excellent press conference at E3 back in June, Microsoft’s announcement of the Backward Compatibility service for Xbox One threw a pretty massive spanner in the works. Perhaps the biggest grumble gamers have about this generation of consoles, is the lack of access to games bought in the previous generation. It used to be a given that machines would be […]

Grand Theft Auto V Climbs to 54 Million Copies Sold

Grand Theft Auto V Climbs to 54 Million Copies Sold

Grand Theft Auto V may have come with a hefty price tag, but the developers likely guessed that the name alone would help cover the costs.  The way things are looking, that guess was spot-on; with releases on four separate consoles and a PC port, the game’s sales have just as much weight as the brand.  As it stands, the number of copies sold sits somewhere around 54 million. It’s […]

Back in 2011, Capcom officially declared the long-awaited Mega Man Legends 3 cancelled, which didn’t exactly go over well with the fans.  But Keiji Inafune, one of the franchise’s biggest names, swept in two years later to fill a Blue Bomber-shaped hole in everyone’s lives with Mighty No. 9 — and tried to fill the hole even more with Red Ash.  The former met its funding goals within two days; the […]

Halo “Infection” Mode Rumored to be Coming to Halo MCC

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has had mixed success with it’s Halo fan-base. Yes, while we were excited to see a remastered Halo 2, the multiplayer was a let down…for the time being. After receiving numerous updates, it seems to be running well (and with Halo 5 around the corner, we really can’t do much fretting). However, the question remains as to why this  game-type didn’t come out when Halo: MCC was released, and with Halo […]
