For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles.

  • Invitations Being Sent to Beta Test PlayStation Now

    Invitations Being Sent to Beta Test PlayStation Now

    Some users who signed up for information on PlayStation Now have begun to receive invitations to beta test the service. PlayStation Now is Sony's upcoming streaming service that will let PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Vita owners stream a wide variety of current and past PlayStation titles to their devices.

    It seems as though that at this present time the beta testing is only for those with PlayStation 3 consoles.

    The studio is wisely tapping into what could become another Lego monster or bigger as Minecraft has just passed over 100M users and has been downloaded to 14.3M PCs. From a marketing standpoint, the property cuts across all demos in terms of popularity. The game is very much like the world we saw in The Lego Movie as master builders constructed what they needed as they needed. Depending on how they develop the property, they could see Lego-like
