Sony sells 70 million PS3s; 15 million PS Move controllers worldwide

Daniel Perez | Fri, Nov 16 2012 11:57 AM CST

Microsoft is celebrating its Xbox Live 10-year anniversary this month as it was officially launched back in November 15, 2002, but Sony has hijacked their party, popped their festive balloons and punched every celebratory cake in sight with its news of updated sales figures for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Move controller.

Sony has announced today its PlayStation 3 has reached a total of 70 million units sold worldwide since its debut back in November of 2006, one year after the Xbox 360 was made available. Even with a one-year head start, Sony has caught up with Microsoft's Xbox 360 as they reached their 70 million units sold worldwide mark just last month. Seeing how Microsoft has always struggled selling its Xbox 360 in Japan, I'm sure Sony's dominance of the region helped reach today's goal.

GTA V's second official trailer is here - shows how vast the game is

Anthony Garreffa | Wed, Nov 14 2012 10:30 PM CST

The second trailer to Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V is here, and boy what a trailer. It shows off that the super-huge open-world game is set to be just as large as they've stated it to be - with the game world bigger than Red Dead Redemption, GTA IV and San Andreas, combined.

The second official trailer shows more of the characters off, the game world, some of the environments, vehicles (planes included) and more. It doesn't look, from this trailer at least, that the game is going to be more of the same, but on a much, much bigger scale. This isn't bad, but I'd love to see Rockstar push the GTA game into a completely new direction.

We already know there's going to be three protagonists in GTA V, where you can switch in and out of these characters at any time - the camera zooms up into the sky, locates the character of choice, and zooms back in giving you control of the next protagonist. Very cool. The trailer looks like it's using either a higher resolution than the consoles it is going to be released on (Xbox 360, PS3) or they've used the render res (most likely just under 720p) and slapped on some AA. Hopefully it looks that good, and runs that well, when it's released.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted demo now available on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network

Daniel Perez | Wed, Nov 14 2012 10:00 AM CST

Before Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 took over my gaming time, I was playing Need for Speed: Most Wanted on a very regular basis. Its driving mechanics felt a tad heavy compared to previous Criterion titles, but after spending several hours with the game, I became used to it and enjoyed my time with it before first-person shooters took dominance over all games.

PC version of Black Ops 2 ships with Mass Effect 2 instead [UPDATE]

Daniel Perez | Tue, Nov 13 2012 8:49 AM CST

Update: BioWare has announced they will be giving PC players affected by this mishap a very special gift.

If you were one of the millions of Call of Duty fans who attended midnight launch events last night to pick up your copy of Black Ops 2 as soon as it was legal to do so, then you're probably sound asleep as you played the game to hell until the sun came up. But a small minority seem to be having issues with their newly acquired game, specifically the PC version.

GTA V will be bigger than GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption and San Andreas combined

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Nov 12 2012 10:26 PM CST

Any Grand Theft Auto fan knows that with each successive game, the game world itself gets much bigger. Well, it looks like Grand Theft Auto V is set to be the biggest of them all. The digital edition of Game Informer's December Issue is out, and it includes a mammoth amount of information on the game.

There will be not one, but three protagonists in GTA V, which can be switched between at nearly any time during the game. There's no confirmation on whether there'll be cooperative play, but with three players to choose from, I don't see how it can't feature the wicked ability for co-op.

Randomized events make a return, as well as some of the characters from GTA IV. The biggest thing with this feature in Game Informer is that they unleashed the news that the game world is going to be bigger than Red Dead Redemption, San Andreas and GTA IV... combined.

Source Engine 2 is being worked on, Valve are just "waiting for a game to roll it out with"

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Nov 12 2012 1:35 AM CST

We kinda knew this was in the works, and I think we're going to see Half-Life 3 rolled out with it. But, during a visit from 4chan.org's /v/ board for his birthday, Valve boss Gabe Newell received some presents from some randoms from the Internet.

He had to pay $2.50 to unlock a real-life Mann Co. crate that included a TF2 Soldier hat inside, and he hung around to talk to fans of his, and his games, that came from all across the United States. The first question asked, and paraphrased from the above video, "Is Valve working on a new Source engine?"

Newell replied with "We've been working on new engine stuff for a while", adding "we've just been waiting for a game to roll it out with". Someone then follows that question up with "is it more than just an extension to Source? Like, is it an entirely new engine?" Newell, the hero that he is, replies with "yeah."
