Morning News Wrap (13 Feb 2013)

Morning.  It’s been a while hasn’t it?  24 hours to be exact since we force fed you tiny bits of gaming news and watched you be the envy of your friends.  Let’s do it again shall we? Microsoft has opened a new LA-based studio called Xbox Entertainment Studios, which is headed by Nancy Tellem, president of entertainment and digital media at…

Morning News Wrap (12 Feb 2013)

It was a late Monday night around the zombies crib.  The kind of late that no amount of bacon and braaaaaiiiiiiinnnnnssss will fix.  So we’ll jump straight in to the news and hope for the best. Next-gen rumours are the best way to rattle the cobwebs clear.  A Kotaku source (alias ‘SuperDaE’) claims to have  direct access to Durango development kits and says…

Morning News Wrap (8 Feb 2013)

Wow.  Made it.  Friday.  We’ll stop reminding you of what day it is now.  Enjoy your Friday morning news… The latest insider report doing the rounds regarding the next-Xbox comes via The Verge.  According to this source, the console will carry a big focus on “greatly improved” speech recognition.  The (let’s call it) Xbox 720 will support wake on voice, natural language controls, and speech-to-text.…

Good morning sport’s fans.  If you’re a South African sport’s fan, you’re probably thinking: “what’s so good about it?”  Well, Bafana Bafana may have lost in the AFCON Cup, but the Proteas are looking good in the cricket, and the SA Team in Battlefield 3’s PS3 World Nations Tournament beat the reigning champs France on Saturday.  Not bad considering they’re…

Morning News Wrap (29 Jan 2013)

Yes!  It’s the 29th day of the year 2013…  Can it just be the end of the year already please?  Or maybe just the weekend even?  Please?  We promise to stop eating human braaaaaiiiiiiinnnnssss for a week if we get our wish.  No?  Fine.  News then. China is apparently considering lifting a 12-year game console ban that prevents the manufacture, sale and import…

Morning News Wrap (28 Jan 2013)

Everyone have a good weekend?  Everyone raring to get the week started with an enthusiastic adrenaline rush of excitement?  Neither are we.  Maybe a little gaming news will help kick start the day a little. At the moment it doesn’t appear that a day will go by without THQ being mentioned in the news.  Odd, considering they essentially don’t exist anymore.…

Morning News Wrap (25 Jan 2013)

An Apple a day keeps the doctor away they say.  Won’t keep the zombies at bay.  So keep that in mind next time you want to eat healthy. Apple (not the fruit referred to above) has seen its shared tumble, despite record results.  The iPhone maker reported record results for its first quarter, but posted its slowest profit growth since…
