Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's CEO Jim Ryan has stated that the company has 30 games currently in development for the PlayStation 4. In addition, 20 of them will be released within the first year of the new console's launch, and among those, 12 of them are entirely new franchises.
Registrations to participate in the Project Spark beta are officially open. The sandbox style title was revealed at E3, and combines user generated content with a fairly novel approach to programming, allowing players to create and share entirely new games using the software. It's a concept that's a bit difficult to explain with text, so if you're scratching your head at that premise, check out a video intro to the game below.
Ellen Page has a bone to pick with Naughty Dog. The developer’s game The Last of Us has a character with a name and image strikingly similar to Page’s, and Page let her feelings be known in a recent Reddit "Ask Me Anything" (AMA).
With the race between the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One being fairly even since Microsoft reversed some of their planned features it seems the outcome of the race will come down to the core of any console, games.
Another batch of Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC has been confirmed, and it's something of a tie-in to the recent film, Man of Steel. The new content will include a Man of Steel inspired skin for Superman, priced at $.99, and a new character, General Zod. Injustice's Zod appears to be much more inspired by the comics (kneel before Zod and all), and certainly doesn't resemble MoS's version at all. Both additions will be arriving next month, in the meantime, you can watch a gameplay trailer for Zod below.
Amazon has listed the Xbox One for a November 27th Release. This date would seem like a smart choice since it is the day before Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend. However, there may be some other reasons why this might not be the best decision on Microsoft's part.
Namco Bandai Games America has confirmed, to the video game website Gematsu, that Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z will be coming to North America. It will receive a retail release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, while the PlayStation Vita will receive a digital version only.

KMM, the company that now holds the rights to Whore of the Orient, has just been granted $200,000 by the Australian government. The title has been on the verge of cancellation for quite a while now, with the closure of the original developer Team Bondi after L.A. Noire, and Warner Bros. backing out of a potential publishing deal.
The very concept of Peggle 2 is awesome enough, but Popcap went ahead and gave that surprise E3 announcement just a bit more... pizazz. Although to be honest, I was in the audience, and this is pretty much what it looked like to me.
