Nintendo Direct Reveals Four New Ways to Play Pikmin 3, Release Date Announced

Wii U owners may have been a little disappointed that they’d have to wait for Pikmin 3’s launch later this year, but delaying its release may have been a great choice for Nintendo to make.  As revealed by Satoru Iwata, Pikmin 3 will now have multiple control variations to suit almost everyone’s way to play, among the new features found within the gameplay itself.

The rental market just got a whole lot more interesting

Xbox One To Charge Fees for 2nd Installs, No Backwards Compatibility

As details are being revealed from the unveiling of the Xbox One, it appears Microsoft is going to be changing what it means to "own a game."  The changes could have a drastic affect on the used and rental market for games while also making it easier for co-op gamers in a single household. How are they going to do that? Every game for the Xbox One will be installed to the hard drive, and if you want to install a game to another Xbox Live Account you'll need to pay a fee. Perhaps this is the end to having to buy multiple copies of games to play co-op in one house?

Next generation console focuses on entertainment rather than games.

Microsoft Unveils the Xbox One

Microsoft has officially unveiled their next generation console which will launch later this year. It's called the Xbox One  - bucking the trend of sequential numbering or the rumored Xbox 720, Xbox Infinity, and everything else. The one hour presentation focused on the console itself and the entertainment, architecture and partnerships around it. Perhaps we are seeing the end of the term "videogame console" as there wasn't a single game to be found until 32 minutes into the presentation.

Developers discuss how a controller changes the game

Diablo 3 Console Port Designed Around Controller Interaction

While there is quite a bit of buzz in the air today for Microsoft's big reveal of the next Xbox, Sony is working on putting out as much information as possible to get folks excited for the PlayStation 4. This includes discussion of the console port of the popular action-RPG, Diablo 3, which recently celebrated a year anniversary since it first saw release on the PC. A console port of the game seemed highly unlikely at first, despite the great deal of speculation, but along with the announcement of the PS4 came the bit of news that had thousands across the internet shouting "I KNEW IT!" This was immediately followed by a thousand more cynical statements of, "psh, it'll never work. PC MASTER RACE!"
