Destiny set for Xbox 720, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2014

If you've heard anything about the upcoming "game changer" title set to be produced by Bungie over the next 10 years in installments with Activision, you know that it certainly wouldn't make sense for the whole series to be appearing on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In fact the first installment will be on those two consoles, but essentially everything afterward has been confirmed in legal documents to be hitting no less than the PlayStation 4, the Xbox 720, and the PC. The information that reveals said bits and pieces comes from a Call of Duty legal dispute where the contract between Activision and Bungie had to be unsealed.

Xbox 720 may be “always watching” with mandatory Kinect

One of the most terrifying prospects we've heard in the past few years surrounding a gaming console - or a computer of any type, for that matter, has been re-addressed this week with the Xbox 720. This machine has not yet been confirmed as even being in development by Microsoft as of yet, but another bag of tips has been revealed with specifications and features included with the device that may set your hair on end.

This week the Microsoft Xbox 720 specifications are flying like leaves off a tree, and today's bit of information comes from none other that former Microsoft executive Joachim Kempin.

Grand Theft Auto V for next-gen consoles: not so much

This week the developers behind Grand Theft Auto V (aka GTA5) have made it clear that the delay they're experiencing with the release of their next-generation game has nothing to do with Microsoft and Sony releasing new consoles this year. While Take-Two chief executive officer Strauss Zelnick's words didn't explicitly confirm nor deny the idea that the Xbox 720 or PlayStation 4 will exist in the very near future, the idea that GTA:V will be released on those mystical machines seems to have been clearly dashed.
