Microsoft purchase of ZeniMax and Bethesda was finally approved by the SEC and European Union Commission.

The final paperwork and actual ownership takeover is currently expected to be completed by late 2021.

By law, Microsoft was obliged to seek approval from the statutory bodies on the basis of Antitrust - essentially global laws that are in place in order to supervise and prevent the formation of monopolies within a given industry. This is a common legal procedure in transactions of this nature, and was also sought by Tencent during the conglomerate's acquisition of mobile giant King in 2016.

Having received approval from both the EU Commission and the SEC, Microsoft is now expected to press forward with the $7.5 billion transaction, which is expected to see completion in late-2021. The deal gives Microsoft ownership of ZeniMax Media and its subsidiary studios and licenses, including those of video game publisher Bethesda Softworks.

Bethesda and Microsoft have previously assured video game fans that the new deal does not automatically designate all future Bethesda releases as Xbox/PC exclusives, suggesting that title exclusivity will be designated on a "case-by-case" basis. Bethesda's next release, Deathloop, will retain its initial PlayStation exclusivity despite the Microsoft purchase.

Well after weeks of stalking restock twitter feeds, I finally got an Xbox Series X. I had to get a fucking bundle but I don't care. It was so difficult. Feel like I just placed in the olympics.

Microsoft is currently rumored to be holding a video event on March 11th to discuss details regarding their recent purchase of ZeniMax & Bethesda.

According to sources speaking with VentureBeat, Microsoft is planning to discuss what this industry-shaking transaction means for Xbox going forward, with specific regard to the Xbox Game Pass service. According to VentureBeat's sources, Microsoft is currently preparing a video presentation for broadcast Thursday, March 11, in order to better explain its plans for its newly owned studios such as Bethesda Softworks.

Of course, one of the biggest concerns from a customer standpoint revolves around exclusivity deals, and whether Xbox will now hold firm to titles such as The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Wolfenstein, and others. At present it remains unclear as to whether Microsoft intends to broach this subject in the presentation, focusing more on its plans to bring the aforementioned franchises to the Game Pass service.

It is also noted that the presentation is not an E3-style "reveal" deal. This isn't going to be a showcase for new and upcoming games. The report states that this is more a matter of business, as Microsoft begins to set out its goals for its soon-to-be-acquired portfolio of new studios and blockbuster brands, boosting its inventory to some 23 development teams.

I basically had to sub to all these restock twitter feeds and this app called Hotstock. The second they go on sale, you gotta be on the site. I made sure to make profiles for all the main sites (Walmart, Target, Gamestop, Best Buy, Costco) and had address/payment info ready to go on them. It's difficult but not impossible.

Yes, there's that route also. Most the people on Ebay don't want to make anything less than like 300 profit but it's possible to get lucky on an auction. If I get an opportunity to get another (which I might now that I have this elaborate setup) I'll probably scalp it to get some of my money back on the other one. I'm already seeing the bundle I just got on Ebay for $1200.

I overpaid a wee bit, but I'm willing to do that right now, given the situation. Like Seph, mine was on its last leg as it is in the main room, and thereby used for the entire family for TV and stuff too.


I paid about ~$100 extra, but the seller included free overnight shipping + the OG purchase receipt for warranty stuff.

I paid 720 but it came with extra controller, Hitman 3, AC Valhalla, 3 months of Xbox live gold, and a 20 giftcard to gamestop. More than I wanted to pay but not a bad haul.

Good titles too. Not sure if you like the AC formula of the past couple years, but there is a SHIT ton of content. As a fellow dad, you'll fall in love with quick resume. The only exception are games that require an online component (Monster Hunter World, Division, shit like that).


Happy gaming, my dude.

The game is called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge and is a beat-em-up similar in gameplay style to the old NES and SNES beat-em-up games. At the moment, only a release for PC (Steam) has been announced although the studio stated it will also be released for consoles.

that shit looks just like more turtles in time and that is a great thing. If you told me that game came out in the mid 90's as a direct follow up just based on that footage I would totally buy it. Can not wait for this one.

* According to a report from GamesIndustry.biz, eight members of Gamestop's board of directors will be leaving the company this June. Among those leaving includes former Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime.

GameStop's fortunes did indeed improve in the short-term, thanks to the release of next-gen platforms PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, which brought a serious boost to the retailer's fourth quarter for the year 2020-2021. In the long-term, however, GameStop had a difficult year, with an overall 21% decline in sales, leading to a loss in the region of $215 million USD. The recent "GameStonks" debacle - which saw online traders purposefully drive up GameStop stock cost in order to price out opportunists - no doubt lead to further headaches for the company's accountancy.

Several more notable developers recently left Sony's Japan Studio as part of the company's current restructuring process for their Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan branch.

Thursday had the director of the Demon Souls Remake for PS5 leave while Wednesday had both the art director of the Gravity Rush series and the senior producer of Bloodbourne departing.

"After 24 years at Sony and 18 of those in Japan, yesterday was my last day at [Sony Japan Studio]," said Moore in an emotional goodbye on Twitter. "I will miss the great creative spirit and camaraderie of the studio that was a huge part of my life. Time to seek out new and exciting opportunities!!"

Shinsuke Saito announced his departure from SIE Japan in a very succinct message on Twitter earlier this morning. Saito is an artist, animator, and character designer, responsible for the creation of popular protagonists such as Kat from the world-bending 2012 Gravity Rush. Saito was also art director for 2017 sequel Gravity Rush 2.

Also leaving SIE Japan is Kentaro Motomura, who has had the prestige and good fortune to be involved with the development of titles such as Bloodborne, Wild Arms, Dark Cloud, and Everybody's Golf. While Motomura did not note any specific plans, he intends on continuing in the field of game development.

Has music from the one and only Nobuo Uematsu.


Guess they built actual dioramas for the world. Fucking cool and I hope it comes to other platforms. The ability to curve spells with touch screen controls is fucking neat.

The ESA announced that this year's digital E3 event will take place from June 12-15.

In regards to the Big 3, both Nintendo and Microsoft have committed to holding an online press conference for the event while Sony's status is currently unknown.

The ESA is also currently planning for the return of crowds and in-person booths for next year's E3.

Games and Koch Media, and more to come." So there's a few of the usual "press conference" suspects, minus Bethesda. Also note that Sony is again not present on this early list. Gulp!

There's a few takeaways from this seemingly innocuous confirmation, too. The ESA reconfirms that the show will be "available to everyone for free," which is great news as a potential last-minute decision prevented a disaster of paywalling. And there's another thing to note from the ESA's statement this morning, too.

According to a report from Bloomberg, Naughty Dog is currently working on a remake of The Last of Us 1 for the PS5.

It was also reported that this is part of a new strategy by Sony to mainly focus on just developing and releasing "blockbuster" status games from their studios for the PS5.

This new strategy reportedly has led to a lot of grumbling and complaints behind the scenes since it means a lot less focus and approval for smaller and diverse projects.

One internal division has already disbanded and Sony Bend studio recently saw a wave of departures over this issue.

Quote:
According to a report from Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, Naughty Dog is at work on a PS5 remake of its miserable 2013 third-person adventure The Last of Us.

The supposed project is referenced by Bloomberg as part of a larger report on PlayStation's growing focus on blockbuster video games, noting the designers, artists, and other developers within the PlayStation family who are growing uncomfortable with the corporation's aggressive push toward mega-budget mega-sellers over all other projects.

This unrest has reportedly led to the disbandment of a Sony development division known as the "Visual Art Service Group." This San Diego team - who have been working on many PlayStation releases in recent years - had been tasked with developing The Last of Us remake for Sony's PS5 hardware, before Sony bosses handed off the project to original TLOU developer Naughty Dog. Bloomberg cites eight former members of the Visual Arts Service Group - who felt mismanaged, ignored, and undervalued - as its source. Neither Sony nor the group's founder wished to comment on the matter.

Bloomberg's report goes on to suggest that Sony Bend - the studio behind open-world survival title Days Gone - recently had its proposal for Days Gone 2 turned down. Following this, several members of the team were sectioned off to work alongside Naughty Dog on the Uncharted franchise. This action led to some of Sony Bend's lead developers stepping away from the studio, concerned that Bend would soon be absorbed into Naughty Dog in its entirety.

Amazon cancels it's Lord of the Rings MMORPG that was in the works.

They were working with China's Leyou Technologies Holdings. But, they were bought out by Tencent Holdings back in December.

Since then, Amazon and Tencent were unable to come to terms.

Square Enix is currently debunking rumors of them being in recent talks with other companies regarding them potentially being sold off to a new owner.

The source of the rumor is from a recent report from Bloomberg that stated several companies have shown interest in purchasing Square Enix.

"Bloomberg has reported today that there is interest from several buyers to acquire Square Enix," addressed the Final Fantasy publisher. "However, this report is not based on any announcement by Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. We do not consider selling off the company or any part of its businesses, nor have we received any offer from any third party to acquire the company or any part of its businesses."

As reported by Kantan Games' Dr. Serkan Toto, the publishing of Bloomberg's story would see Square Enix Japan's stock rise significantly, hitting an almost 14% increase by Japan's midday trading period. But it seems, at least according to Square itself, that it's still business-as-usual for the legendary RPG developer.

Following the online backlash over Sony's announcement of them shutting down the PS3, PS Vita, and PSP stores on the Playstation Store this summer, the company recently announced they have changed their minds and the PS3 and Vita stores will remain on the Playstatiion Store for the "foreseeable future."

Big backlash because Ps3 and PS4 would become bricks on digital content purchased when the CMOS battery died.

Not just digital games. All games. Once the CMOS dies, and if the console can't connect to the network at least once after replacing the battery in order to update, it can't play disc based games either.
