Activision reveals 12M still play Black Ops 2 on last-gen consoles

Yesterday we talked about some of the limitations people will see when playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on older consoles. The two most notable things are that the campaign has been completely removed, and the FPS will have to switch between 30 and 60 during the multiplayer modes. This leaves some people wondering why Activision would spend the time and resources into putting out a stripped-down version of the game for older consoles. As it turns out, they've got a very good answer.

Minecraft: Story Mode hits PS4, Xbox One on October 13

Good news for fans of either Minecraft or the excellent narrative titles from developer Telltale Games, as the latter's Minecraft: Story Mode is now confirmed to see release on Tuesday, October 13th.

Telltale Games changes that, adding a detailed storyline to the universe across five episodes, much like how the developer released the critically acclaimed Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us games.

Mortal Kombat X suffers a fatality on Xbox 360, PS3
