PlayerScale, a cross-platform game infrastructure startup that provides tools for games played by 150 million users on platforms such as iOS and Android, announced the acquisition on its site today. And — unlike recent Yahoo acquisitions like Astrid – CEO Jesper Jensen said the company would continue to operate as it has, supporting over 2,600 developers and 4,000 games.
Their sudden push into mobile gaming is rather intriguing. I think we’ll see a lot more games related acquisitions by Yaho
Both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 have very similar hardware, with the PS4 having a slight edge in terms of raw power, and the Xbox having the edge in power consumption.

Yes, their next-generation consoles both offer high-fidelity games, and they can both play music and movies. But the rest is rather different.The Wall Street JournalIan Sherr
Sam Lake, Creative Director takes to Youtube to talk a little about the future of Remedy and Alan Wake. Sadly it sounds like Alan Wake didn’t sell enough copies to merit a true sequel, but it was received well enough for Microsoft to throw a pile of money their way for a new IP (Quantum Break).
I loved Alan Wake. It was probably one of my favorite games to come out of this generation of titles. And even though I’m disappointed it will be quite some time before I get to play a new game of the
Not a big surprise. I could see them mimicking Steam Greenlight to get more the popular indie titles on the service though.

We have no idea what the videogame landscape will look like seven years from now, just as we had no idea in 2005 how foundationally streaming and smartphones would change everything. The very concept of any physical media box may well be obsolete within a decade. But even if this is the last true console we ever see, one thing is for sure: Gaming isn’t just games anymore.

Most people I know that own an Xbox 360 use it to watch Netflix. Most of the people I know that own a Playstation 3 use it primarily as a Blue-Ray player. Sure, they bought games too, but they really dont play them. Attempting to call the Xbox One an entertainment system that just so happens to play games, is a brilliant move by Microsoft.
