Xbox Hardware Sales Are Down - console
(hx) 02:12 PM EST - Jan,28 2015 - Post a comment
IGN is reporting that Xbox hardware sales are down for the quarter closing out 2014. On the positive side Microsoft says mobile device sales are doing well and the company still managed to generate a net income of $5.86 billion.
Microsoft announced $26.5 billion in revenue for quarter closing out 2014, with Xbox sales down, but mobile device sales for units like the Surface Pro and Lumia phones doing well.

Net income in general is down from last year's report of $6.55 billion, however, this time at $5.86 billion.

Part of this drop, according to Microsoft, is related to $243 million worth of restructuring and integration costs partially due to the company's acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone business.

Ubisoft is Revoking Far Cry 4 CD-Keys - briefly
(hx) 02:01 AM EST - Jan,28 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
Buying CD-keys from third-party re-sellers (IE: anywhere other than Steam/uPlay/Origin or a retail store) always comes with an inherent risk, just as buying anything on eBay. However, once you've paid for the key, had your game client accept it, and are able to boot up the game, you wouldn't really expect for it to be suddenly taken away. Well, if you bought a copy of Far Cry 4 from a re-seller such as G2A or Kinguin (#1, #2), that may be exactly what is about to happen. Ubisoft has released an official statement to Game Informer confirming earlier forum reports of users having their games removed from their libraries. "We regularly deactivate keys that were fraudulently obtained and resold," said the representative, adding "In this case, we are currently investigating the origin of the fraud and will update customers when we have more information to share. In the meantime customers should contact the vendor from whom they purchased their key." G2A, one of the other re-sellers involved in this situation, released the following statement via Facebook:
OFFICIAL STATEMENT ABOUT THE UBISOFT SITUATION

As some of you may already know, steps have been taken to remove games purchased indirectly from a publisher, via main marketplaces in the web. G2A.COM is not in any case responsible for any of these procedures. However, we are well aware of this process and will do everything possible to compensate for that.

For users who have made transactions without G2A Shield, we will check if the corresponding merchant was responsible for the withdrawal of the code. If so, these users will get a compensation. Any user who used G2A Shield affected by the current process will get either a new code for the game or the money back. G2A.COM will make every possible exertion to prevent this kind of procedures in the future and exclude merchants responsible for such incidents from the marketplace.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Lady Hammerlock - briefly
(hx) 11:20 AM EST - Jan,27 2015 - Post a comment
If you've been playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and are eagerly awaiting the next playable character from Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, then fear not, your wait is almost over. The developer announced during this weekend's PAX South convention that the next playable character, Lady Aurelia the Baroness, will be available to download tomorrow, January 27. Better known as Lady Hammerlock, Aurelia is the sister to everyone's favorite adventurer, Sir Hammerlock:
Aurelia is the heir of the Hammerlock family fortune, but when she's not riding her hoverbike through the endless hallways of her orbital turbomansion, she's out hunting the latest and greatest game in the galaxy. If these expeditions should put her in conflict with her younger brother Alistair – aka Sir Hammerlock – all the better. The only thing more fun than shooting a rare animal Alistair intended to study is the look of abject horror and surprise on his face once Aurelia wears its carcass like a jaunty scarf. bR>
Normally, Lady Hammerlock would never be seen within a light year of Pandora, but she's grown bored as her turbomansion grows cold, while her lust for violence grows hot. She's headed to Elpis with nothing more than an expensive gun, an experimental Cryo diadem, and a powerful belief that shooting angry things in the face is a good deal of fun.
The Lady Hammerlock Pack is part of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’s Season Pass, but it can also be purchased separately for $9.9

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt includes 16 free DLC packs - briefly
(hx) 01:34 AM EST - Jan,27 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
Developer CD Projekt Red has announced that all players will receive 16 free DLC packs following the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in February of 2015. The first bit of DLC is said to contain two pieces of content - the Temerian Armor Set and a Beard and Hairstyle Set for Gerald - and will release on February 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A new bundle of DLC will launch every week following the game’s release free of charge.
We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn't have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character, or an extra sword, or armour.

Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialize with a steep price tag attached. Haven't we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game?

As CD PROJEKT RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently. Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform. You don't have to pre-order, you don't have to buy any special edition to get them - if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they’re yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.
In addition, journalists from all over the world had a chance to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt during global hands-on events for the very first time. This resulted in a delicate smattering of hands-on previews that can be found on Shacknews, Kotaku, Metro News, NZGamer.com, ComingSoon.net, The Escapist, Flickering Myth, GameSpot, Only Single Player, Paste, PCWorld, .



The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases February 24 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. To pre-order The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on GOG.com with tons of bonus content simply go here.
