Square Enix announced today that current "Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn" players will be able to migrate their PlayStation 3 accounts to the up-coming PlayStation 4 free of charge.
The first and only cable network to cater exclusively towards video gamers, G4, has had a very rocky existence. The final nail in the coffin was the announcement that it would be completely rebranded as the Esquire Channel.
The change in focus was what motivated the channel to cancel the two shows that represented its original mission statement: Attack of the Show and X-Play. Plenty of behind the scenes people were also let go in the process.
But guess what; turns out, G4 is not going anywhere. Instead, the Esquire Network will take over the Style Network.
While many will partake in the next round of console offerings, which are just around the corner, there are many more who will be sticking with what they have now for the foreseeable future. But then one must ask: for how long will Sony and Microsoft remain interested in the PS3 and Xbox 360?
It's a valid question, especially for the latter user base. There are still many original Xbox owners who recall the time MS dropped them like a hot potato when the 360 became their new thing.
It's MewTwo vs. a prehistoric creature in the feature-length "Pokémon the Movie Genesect and the Legend Awakened," making its debut next month on Cartoon Network, along with a preview of the new series, "Pokémon the Series: XY."
In an interview with Empire, Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser says a big screen version of "GTA" is unlikely (but he could imagine it as a TV series).
Gamers have spoken and they clearly believe in Keiji Inafune's dream project. And the success of the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter has proven that the hordes of disgruntled Mega Man fans are indeed putting their money where their mouth is.
A little over a week since its debut, it has easily surpassed the initial goal of $900,000. In fact, as of this writing, it's the original desired amount plus a cool million on top, at $1,900,396.
