NEWS!

EA’s Xbox One sub plan
scott knows the skinny on this. Also, this is what sony says:”We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,” a Sony rep told Game Informer. “PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200 percent since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price. We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer.”
brian thinks Sony is going to become the Nintendo of the late 80s.

Upcoming documentary tells the story behind Atari games buried in landfill. I think IceWarm summed it up best on Twitter: “This game sucks…bury it!” Roll credits.

Dear Cott, Rian and Icole

About a month ago I finally bit the bullet and bought myself an Nintendo 3DS XL, wich I love btw. It shows the company is still a big player on the handheld market.

Now, my question for you. Could you give me your top 5 Nintendo 3ds games?
So I know what’s good. I trust your judgement on these things. Thanks.

Oh hey Nicole, give my best to Don Cheeto.

Cheers,
Mario
