Sony settles with PS3 owners over Linux lawsuit

A long-running class-action lawsuit from PlayStation 3 owners angry over losing the ability to run Linux on the console may finally be over. When the PS3 launched in 2006, it featured support for "OtherOS," which let owners install Linux on the console's hard drive.

LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens game re-imagines the movie as a comedy

True to LEGO re-interpretive style, the next video game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is a comedic take on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The best way to make this clear is through a new take on the original teaser trailer for the film - you know the one. The one where Finn pops up in the desert to scare the pants off everyone watching. The one where you first saw BB-8 rolling. The one where you see Rey driving her popsicle speeder bike.

Mortal Kombat X suffers a fatality on Xbox 360, PS3

If you own one of two, or even both, previous gen consoles, don't expect to be treated to the brutal celebration of blood and gore that is Mortal Kombat X. On Warner Bros. Games' forums, yes, the same Warner Bros' whose PC port of Batman Akrham Knight has still to see a proper fix, the publisher made it official.

In an effort to promote his special appearance in a wrestling video game (WWE 2K16), Arnold Schwarzenegger has recreated his role as the Terminator from T2: Judgement Day.
