Nintendo ships 5.7 million amiibo, most of them of Link

Amiibo are dead, long live amiibo! Despite what rumors would have us believe, amiibo figurines are apparently selling well. At its investor briefing, Nintendo painted a rosy picture of its Skylanders-like toys, detailing where the figurines made the most money and which among the lot is actually the most popular. And if you thought it was your friendly, Italian plumber, better think again. Well, actually he is, but only in one very small part of the world and the amiibo market.

Turned 18? Now you can turn your PSN sub account into a master

Even gamers grow older. There comes a time when a young gamer reaches a certain legal number of years where he or she can get access to content previously unavailable to them, legally or otherwise. When that coming of age does arrive, Sony will now let them easily gradate from a PSN Sub Account to a Master Account as easily as flicking a switch.

Saints Row franchise gets hot: the spoiler interview

This month we had the opportunity to have a chat with Jim Boone, Senior Producer for Deep Silver Volition, about the Saints Row game franchise. With both Saints Row: Gat out of Hell and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected out now, it was time we found out what was going on with this double-release, and where Saints Row was headed next.
