It appears the production increase is only for the Japanese market, at least at this point.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for PC gets official local co-op

If you're a Resident Evil fan, you might have been swept up in that hoopla surrounding the disingenuous implications that Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for PC offered offline co-op, then the follow up quiet correction made later on that no, sorry, there's not actually going to be a local co-op for PC.

Twitter adds phone number requirement for Tor users

Twitter adds phone number requirement for Tor users

Twitter has made it a personal mission to stomp the trolls and abusive users that are giving its service a bad name (and causing some legitimate users to jump ship). The anonymous corner of the Internet offers a much-needed service for many, but it is likewise often abused by trolls who use it so that they're harder to trace. Tor is one such tool, and now Twitter is requiring those who are using it to verify their phone number straight away when making a new account, a requirement that isn't in place for those who aren't using Tor.
