PS4 has outsold the Xbox One nearly 2 to 1

PS4 has outsold the Xbox One nearly 2 to 1

In the great Console Wars, there are really only two names that matter. Nintendo has always been an outlier, as they target different audiences, and rarely support the same games as the other two. Unfortunately, in this round, Microsoft has declined to decline releasing official sales numbers for the Xbox One, so it makes it harder to judge how each side is faring, in comparison to the other.

Mario Maker glitch allowed players to modify levels before playing

Mario Maker glitch allowed players to modify levels before playing

Earlier this week, Nintendo took down the servers for Mario Maker. This of course meant that you couldn't play any online courses, or upload any new ones of your own. Nintendo didn't provide any explanation, except for calling it “emergency maintenance” and later saying “adjustments have been made for a more pleasant gaming experience.” However, the real reason for it was a pretty big one.

Xbox Windows 10 Beta app gets Avatar store, compact mode

It's been quite a while since Microsoft has talked about its Xbox app for Windows 10. In fact, this would be the first news this year for the beta version of the app since October. The Xbox devs definitely weren't slacking off and they are starting 2016 with quite a handful of new features focused both on socializing and being productive.

Square Enix teases Final Fantasy IX for mobile

Square Enix teases Final Fantasy IX for mobile

At the start of the year, Square Enix made a rather surprising reveal. That Final Fantasy IX would be coming to PCs is perhaps expected. That it would also be coming to mobile, both iOS and especially Android, was, perhaps the publisher's late Christmas gift (or early, depending on when it actually arrives) to fans. While still thin on launch details, Square Enix is now giving fans yet another appetizer, showing FF IX "in action" action on a mobile device, in a preview delivered over an almost two-hour long news style presentation.

Peter Molyneux is not actually retiring, Godus remains

Peter Molyneux is not actually retiring, Godus remains

In what was either a momentary hacking or a brilliant use of PR, Peter Molyneux seemed to have been retiring for about 20 minutes this afternoon. In the moments after Molyneux's Twitter confirmed that he'd be taking the game Godus down from Steam AND he'd be retiring from the game industry, major news sources aplenty jumped on the opportunity to report. Not 13 minutes later, Molyneux appeared to have regained control over his Twitter account, suggesting he'd been hacked.

GOG launches early-access program

GOG launches early-access program

Early-access games are essentially games that aren't finished yet, that you can pay money to play anyway. This helps the developer out by giving them additional funding during the development phase, and it also allows them to get feedback from people who are essentially testing out the game for them. While some people do take advantage of this concept, plenty of games have been made successful through this means. Unfortunately Steam has been the only place to realistically sell early access to a game.
