So, some people on the internet thought it would be a great idea to, bash someone who posted an article about a possible delay to No Man’s Sky at Kotaku, thinking that it was not true, not clever of course.
If there’s more details, then I might cover more of this story. Stay tuned.
Over the last weekend, major news outlets and reporters/insiders have been outing big news regarding the future of Xbox, specifically a major update to the Xbox One (More powerful, 6 TFLOPS, VR – Xbox One Slim) and Xbox Platform experience (Xbox TV), including the Xbox UI for Windows 10 (Comparable to Steam’s Big Picture mode).
However, one noticeable and interesting addition to all of this news is the addition of VR support, which is rumored to be compatible with Oculus Rift, which Oculus announced last year to be the primary controller from the Xbox One as a deal with Microsoft, which is not surprising seeing the workaround Microsoft is doing to pushing VR onto Windows 10.
E3’s website has added Xbox VR to its own section of companies participating of showcasing games for that category alone, it is unknown how many companies will participate, but one source says that a well-known European company is working on Xbox VR experience game with a long-running and established IP.
Microsoft is highly expected to reveal new games, and the major update for Xbox as we mentioned in the article at their E3 conference for this year, on June 13th at 9:30PM PST (Los Angeles) on Twitch and Xbox.com.

The upcoming PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 versions of the indie hit SteamWorld Heist got pushed back a week from its original launch date (which was May 31st). The developers at Image Form stated why the game was pushed back.
“The reasons for the delay are related to publishing, localisation and quality assurance. We basically encountered a few scattered problems with the PlayStation versions that we have to fix before releasing the game. The extra week will hopefully give us enough time to fix these issues.
We’re working closely together with the fantastic people over at Sony to get the game out as fast as possible. Thanks for being patient with us!”
Hopefully working with Sony will allow the game to release at the new target date of June 7th and 8th. We will be reviewing the game in the future so stay tuned for more information on this title. In the mean time, you can find more information on the title through it’s website.
The game is currently out on the Nintendo 3DS E-Shop.

Grand Turismo Sport is a major title releasing this fall on the PlayStation 4 and aims to be a graphically intensive racer for Sony’s platform. The game will not have a dynamic time nor dynamic weather cycle in the game.
Head developer Kazunori Yamauchi commented on the reasoning for this with the following statement: “We opted to not have the transitions in the race this time in order to raise the frame-rate and the quality of the image during the race. So the user will be able to set that before they enter the race. So you’ll still be able to have night races, morning, races at dawn, dusk, and so on.”
Considering GT6 suffered from frame rate issues on the PlayStation 3, the focus on stable performance is a noble goal to focus upon.
