Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition hits 4 million sales

For Mojang, Minecraft is the gift that keeps on giving. Perhaps it would better to call it the cash cow that keeps producing that sweet, sweet money, but whatever you want to call it, it's safe to say that it's one of the most popular indie games ever created. That's evidenced in the latest sales numbers for the Xbox 360 edition: 4 million sales less than 5 months after release. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a success.

Black Ops II Zombies mode debuts in new video

Black Ops II Zombies mode debuts in new video

One of the biggest talking points about the original Black Ops was Zombies mode. When Activision and Treyarch announced Call of Duty: Black Ops II, footage from the game's Zombies mode was surprisingly absent, but that all changed today. After teasing the mode last week, Activision has released a new trailer for Zombies, and a new write-up from Polygon gives us an idea of what we can expect to find when we delve into Zombies mode once more.

Cube World gets awesome multiplayer trailer

Cube World gets awesome multiplayer trailer

There are a lot of Minecraft clones running around out there, and at first glance, you might be tempted to label Cube World as one of them. The colorful voxel environments are surely reminiscent of Minecraft, but judging from the game's new multiplayer trailer below, that's where the similarities end. Instead of a focus on building, Cube World puts the focus on exploration, combat, and collecting loot, and if that doesn't get you excited, then frankly we don't know what will.

Valve imposes $100 submission fee to stop Steam Greenlight spammers

Valve imposes $100 submission fee to stop Steam Greenlight spammers

Steam's new Greenlight feature launched last week, quickly attracting all sorts of games for the community to vote on for potential inclusion in Steam's catalog. There's just one problem with that: since there weren't any kind of submission requirements in place when Greenlight launched, the door was opened for all sorts of spammers to put fake and offensive games up on the Greenlight page. These submissions ranged from sex games and 9/11 games to fake listings for titles like Half-Life 3 and Minecraft, and after a while, wading through all of that spam to find legitimate games became a chore.

Ubisoft abandons always-on DRM in PC titles

Ubisoft has made a rather huge announcement, saying that it will no longer implement its much-hated always-on DRM in its PC games. Ubisoft's worldwide director for online games Stephanie Perotti announced the big news in a particularly hard-hitting interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, saying that the company has been listening to feedback from players and has decided to ditch the controversial form of digital rights management. Hopefully this decision sticks, because while always-on DRM may make investors happy, it certainly has the opposite effect on paying customers.
