Gaming News Wrap [15 Jul 2013]

Good morning and welcome to a new(s) week. A quick bit of SA news to kick off with (and which will be detailed in future articles), this past weekend was a busy one for Cape Town’s gaming community, which saw a fantastic – and impressively supported – Trenchtown Gaming Tournament, as well as the MSSA FIFA Regional. Our congratulations to…

Gaming News Wrap [12 July 2013]

Good morning and happy Friday to you all. Microsoft is pitching the Xbox One as a business tool to small businesses. The reasoning is that the Xbox One offers features (Kinect and Skype) that “could help it rival even the most modest of video conferencing and networking platforms” all for only $499. I’d happily right it off as a business expense.…

Gaming News Wrap [26 June 2013]

Welcome to the midweek, jam-packed edition of the Gaming News Wrap. You’re halfway there people. Even with an ‘adult category’ for video games in Australian, Saints Row IV has been banned. Those purple dildos must be just too much for some on the classification board. Voilition is working on cutting the offending content. It seems the Xbox One will not…

Gaming News Wrap [13 June 2013]

Good morning and welcome to it. It being gaming news in bite sized chunks. We were originally going to run this piece yesterday, and use a big headline grabber, until we realised how ridiculous Microsoft are starting to appear, and decided they didn’t need any more help. If you have no internet connection (like when you’re “on a nuclear sub”)…

Gaming News Wrap [12 June 2013]

A relatively short and sweet wrap this morning, because all the news is really hitting our E3 articles. EA and Respawn Entertainment have suggested that TitanFall may still appear on the PS3 and/or PS4. This comes amid rumours that the title’s exclusivity on the Xbox One is only valid for one year. More on Eurogamer. EA have also had their…

Gaming News Wrap [10 June 2013]

Welcome to E3 week. While we won’t be at the event in the flesh (…) we will still be trying our damnedest to bring you all the news you can use from L.A. We’ll start with everything else so long… Another analyst has waded in with a pricing prediction for the next-gen consoles. Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia reckons that Sony…

Gaming News Wrap [6 June 2013]

Good Thunder day to all of you. Let’s not waste time and get straight to the news shall we? Deus Ex: The Fall has been announced as a mobile game. Wait. Where are you all going? The “first instalment of the mobile series” will be available “this summer” and cost you $6.99/£4.99/5.99€ on mobile devices and tablets. You can expect Square…

Gaming News Wrap [5 June 2013]

Good morning. Grab your coffee and enjoy this wrap. It’s packed full of news and videos. A supposed leaked list of titles which will be announced at E3 by Microsoft has hit the internet. While – if the list proves to be true and accurate – there is plenty to be excited about, it’s pretty unlikely that this reflects the…
