Last-gen versions of Mortal Kombat X have been delayed once again.
Several GameStop employees have told Kotaku that they they’ve been instructed to inform customers that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game won’t be out until spring.
GameStop has also changed the release date on its website from June 2 to December 31.
This is the second time the release date for last-gen versions of Mortal Kombat X has been pushed back. They were originally due to launch alongside new-gen and PC last month, but were delayed until winter.
The ports are being handled by High Voltage Software, which also took care of the game's PC version. It has previously worked with NeatherRealm porting 2011's Mortal Kombat to PC and Injustice: Gods Among Us to PlayStation 4 and PC.
Tower defence/shooter mash-up Iron Brigade is no longer tied to Games for Windows Live.
Double Fine has acquired the publishing rights for the title, and is updating the Steam version to include Steamworks instead.
That move allows Steam Matchmaking, and a few bugs will be fixed and a few improvements made in the process. To celebrate, it’s currently 80 percent off at NZ$3.59.
A thief in the UK has nicked a lorry filled with copies of upcoming Wii U paint shooter, Splatoon
As reported by Eurogamer, the vehicle was on its way from Nintendo's European headquarters to GAME's UK warehouse when it disappeared.
That leaves GAME with exactly zero copies of the game, and some criminal mastermind with many copies of Splatoon’s Special Edition, which contains the game's rare Squid Amiibo.
Sony acknowledges its first-party offering this year is somewhat lacking, but remains optimistic the PlayStation 4 will retain its market advantage.
As reported by Games Industry, at Sony's 2015 Investor Relations Day, president and global CEO Andrew House said his company was working hard to retain a strong third-party slate, but exclusives were harder to come by these days.
"Our first-party line-up is a little sparse this year, so I think this places even greater emphasis on getting good third-party support," he said.
A group of veteran developers whose credits include BioShock and Dead Space are seeking cash for a pretty novel game idea that involves a blind protagonist.
Perception is being billed as first-person narrative horror adventure for PC, in which a young blind woman must solve mysteries and escape a deadly presence – all without the ability to see.
Fortunately Cassie – the game’s blind heroine – possesses extraordinary hearing and so can ‘see’ using echolocation. Every sound she makes creates a visual for the player.
Crowdfunded racer Project Cars may not make it onto the Wii U after all.
UK developer Slightly Mad Studios has admitted it is struggling to get the game running well on Nintendo's console, and that it is hoping the Japanese company will announce new hardware at this year’s E3.
"At the moment we're running at about 23fps [at 720p] on the Wii U," studio boss Ian Bell said on the game's official forums.
PlayStation 4 exclusive survival horror/adventure Until Dawn will release on August 26, developer Supermassive Games has announced.
The studio also revealed a new cast member – Peter Stormare, who you might recognise from Prison Break, The Big Lebowski and Arrow.
“He gave some incredibly powerful performances in the motion capture studio and you can tell from the end result in the game that he had some fun with the character,” said Supermassive executive producer Pete Samuels.
The latest free update for Evolve adds an arena mode to the game.
The new mode places five fixed domes on each of the game’s 14 maps for a total of 70 locked-down venues, within which the hunters and monster duke it out in best-of-three battles.
After each fight, both sides are transported to the another dome on the same map for round two, and the cycle repeats.
Digital download service GOG has declined to distribute controversial shooter Hatred, the game’s developer has revealed.
"Hatred will not be available on GOG.com, even though gamers widely expected this to happen, because of GOG’s refusal to distribute the game," said Destructive Creations in a press release.
According to the studio, GOG trialled Hatred prior to its decision.
“Even as one of those intoxicated by its play, I will freely admit Bloodborne can be incredibly frustrating. It is the very definition of an acquired taste.”
