Not one to be outdone, Microsoft finally gave us some substantial details on Surface today (including information on pre-orders), and Samsung was right there to put its line up of new Windows 8 PCs and tablets up for pre-order as well.

Microsoft: PEGI 18 games can’t be sold on Windows 8 Marketplace

Microsoft: PEGI 18 games can’t be sold on Windows 8 Marketplace

Here's something that's causing a bit of controversy with the gamers of the world: apparently, Microsoft isn't interested in allowing PEGI 18-rated games on the Windows 8 App Store. In Microsoft's list of Windows 8 Marketplace certification requirements, the company says, "Apps with a rating over PEGI 16, ESRB MATURE, or that contain content that would warrant such a rating, are not allowed." This is part of the requirement that Windows Marketplace apps must be "appropriate for a global audience."

Dishonored dev wasn’t pressured by Bethesda to add multiplayer

Dishonored dev wasn’t pressured by Bethesda to add multiplayer

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you likely know that Arkane's new game Dishonored launched yesterday. It launched to critical acclaim too, despite the fact that it's missing one key element that seems to be present in most modern games: multiplayer. Publishers, much to the chagrin of single player fans, are notorious for requiring multiplayer in the games they release these days, but in a new interview with Kotaku, Dishonored director Harvey Smith says that Bethesda never pressured Arkane to include a multiplayer mode.

Welcome to Thursday evening everyone - just one more work day to go and then we'll have arrived at the weekend. Today we received a pair of invites from Microsoft - one for a Windows 8 launch event happening on October 25, and another for a Windows Phone 8 event happening on October 29.

We were also told today that HP will be hiring more than 50 developers to work on Open webOS, which is definitely something to get excited about.

Bethesda’s Pete Hines doesn’t think we need new consoles yet

Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines has been in the news a lot lately. With the current unrest over the lack Dawnguard on PS3, Hines has been tasked with fending off angry gamers on Twitter, and most of what we know about Bethesda's current struggle has come from him. Today he's in the news again, but this time its completely unrelated to Dawnguard's development woes. Instead, Hines tells MCV that he's in no rush for the next generation to arrive, as there's still plenty left to do with current generation machines.

Dawnguard PS3 development woes have Sony giving Bethesda a helping hand

It isn't exactly a secret by now that Bethesda is having some major issues with the PS3 version of Skyrim: Dawnguard. PS3 players are being left out in the cold thanks to a number of technical problems Bethesda is facing with the console, and the studio said a few weeks back that it may not be able to release the DLC if it can't figure out a fix for these issues. At the time, Bethesda said that it had been working closely with Sony to solve the issue, a statement that SCEA VP of publisher relations Adam Boyes echoed when recently speaking to Kotaku.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: September 4, 2012

We're getting ready to end a Tuesday that has produced some rather big news, so let's jump right into it, shall we? By far the biggest story of the day had to do with upcoming the Apple event. Apple started sending out invitations for the event today, using a picture that gives away what to expect at the event (spoiler alert: the iPhone 5 is coming). With an iPhone 5 reveal essentially confirmed, analysts are predicting success for the new handset, saying that it could potentially sell 10 million units this quarter. Not bad, provided the device actually hits those marks.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 31, 2012

We've officially entered the final hours of August, and in typical SlashGear fashion, we're sending thing off with a bang. Today's IFA adventures didn't produce as much news as the two days before it, but we still have plenty of hands-on posts for you to check out, just like yesterday. We got to check out a couple of Dell's upcoming products today, spending some hands-on time with the Dell XPS Duo 12 and the more traditional Dell XPS 10. Dell wasn't the only one showing off new computers and a tablets today though, as we also have a hands-on with HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4, SpectreXT and ENVY x2, along with a hands-on post for the new Toshiba Satellite U920t.

Dawnguard PS3 may not see release as problems persist

Dawnguard PS3 may not see release as problems persist

PS3 owners have been waiting, some more patiently than others, for their version of Dawnguard to arrive. Skyrim's first DLC has been available on PC for a while now and Xbox 360 for even longer, but Bethesda delayed the PS3 version earlier this month because it wasn't satisfied with the expansion's performance. Unfortunately, it looks like those problems with Dawnguard on PS3 aren't going away, and in a new statement, Bethesda seems to hint that the PS3 might miss out on a release entirely as a result.
