Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

No word on if it's a timed exclusive.

The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain an exclusive to that launcher. This release will mark the first time that the game was available...
 

Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

The original plan from Red Candle Games was to remove the game from...
 

Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...
 

Nintendo Lite Announced - $200 Handheld Device Coming in September

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019. It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...

  • Xbox One Also Sells One Million Units in 24 Hours

    Xbox One Also Sells One Million Units in 24 Hours

    Microsoft is calling it "the biggest launch in Xbox history." Just as the PlayStation 4 did, the Xbox One has also sold one million units in a 24-hour period.

    Microsoft claims that so far 3.6 million miles have been driven in Forza 5 and over 60 million zombies have been killed in Dead Rising 3. The key difference to note here is that the Xbox One launched in 13 countries yesterday in order to reach one million units sold. The PlayStation 4 was launched in only North America (United States and Canada) so far. It's also interesting to note that the PS4 is still backordered to the tune of 2.3 mill...

  • PlayStation 4 and Vita Ultimate Edition Bundle Coming this December

    PlayStation 4 and Vita Ultimate Edition Bundle Coming this December

    It looks like an "Ultimate Edition" bundle that includes the PlayStation 4 and the PS Vita may be coming this December. David Scammell, Editor at VideoGamer.com snapped this photo of an upcoming ad that features the bundle deal.


    The catch here is that the bundle deal may only be for European markets. Yeah, bummer. So far, Sony has not yet announced or confirmed anything yet for any region, so keep those fingers crossed that this makes its way to other regions....

  • Report: Microsoft is Readying a New Version of Xbox One for 2014

    Report: Microsoft is Readying a New Version of Xbox One for 2014

    This probably isn't true at all, but DigiTimes reports that Microsoft is already readying a new version of the Xbox One. Even more is that it may be released in early 2014.
    While Microsoft will launch the Xbox One on November 22, it is preparing to introduce a new version of the Xbox One in the first quarter of 2014, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers who say they have been asked to begin shipments of the new model in that quarter.
    Shipments of Xbox One from the manufacturing side began at one million units a month in the third quarter and monthly shipments have been increasing in the fourth

  • Microsoft Has No Clear Solution for Xbox One Disc Drive Issue

    Microsoft Has No Clear Solution for Xbox One Disc Drive Issue

    The PlayStation 4 had its fair share of hardware issues (perhaps largely attributed to disgruntled Foxxcon employees) and now so does the Xbox One. The Xbox One seems to suffer mainly from a disc drive failure and unfortunately for those affected users, Microsoft has no clear solution.

    We know that with a hardware launch of this magnitude customers will have questions and we have many avenues for customers to get the answers they need and get back in the game as soon as possible. Rest assured we plan to take care of our customers. Any customer who believes they are experiencing an issue with their Xbox One should reach out to us. There are many avenues ava

  • Double XP Event Planned for Battlefield 4 to Apologize for Server Issues - November 28 to December 5

    DICE's General Manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson, announced today that there will be a special double XP event starting on November 28 for Battlefield 4. The reason for the special event is due to the recent server issues that Battlelog had thanks to a lengthy DDoS attack and for various PlayStation 4 crashing issues.

    In addition, any player that logs into the game on December 5 will get the M1911 pistol scope. This item was previously only available to those that worked at DICE.
    At DICE, we are committed to you, the fans, and view the game as a live service. I am extremely proud of the people at DICE and everyone

  • Microsoft Severs All Ties with Apparent Jerk KSI

    Microsoft Severs All Ties with Apparent Jerk KSI

    I don't know who KSI is, but from what the Internet tells me, he's quite the misogynistic douchebag that sexually harassed female event goers at Eurogamer Expo 2012. He's been banned from all Eurogamer events as a result. He was oddly chosen as one of the performers scheduled for the Xbox One launch event in London. Afterwards, he filed a YouTube copyright claim against a journalist that questioned Microsoft's decision to hire a huge douchebag for their event. A "copyright safe" version of the video can be found below. Microsoft was apparently unaware of KSI's "exploits" when they hired him for the event. Needless to say, most anybod...
