I know, right? Where did that come from? That'd be an incredible get for Microsoft, but I guess I don't understand how any of this works because I don't see how it'd be good news for EA. I'd think EA's value and profitability would only go down if all their games suddenly had to be Microsoft-exclusive rather than being multiplatform, right? Surely their shareholders wouldn't be happy about that. Unless Microsoft buys them and still allows them to make multiplatform games, I suppose, but then that can't be right.

 

EDIT - EA has delayed Anthem to 2019, but they don't want you to call it a delay

EDIT - So if it wasn't yet obvious that the Switch is a smash hit for Nintendo, today we have confirmation that, in less than a year, the Switch has outsold the Wii U's entire lifetime sales. Super Mario Odyssey has also sold over 9 million copies in a little over two months since launch.

Speaking of delays, did anyone actually think RDR2 was gonna make it for a springtime release?

 

Hope you didn't bet on that since it's actually coming on October 26th.

 

Also new screens yo

At least it's still this year, I suppose (until the next delay hits). October is Spring in the cool people hemisphere down here, anyway :P

 

EDIT - The new PS4 system update has added in a system-wide supersampling toggle for the PS4 Pro:

Before this there were a few Pro-enhanced games that would lock users out of their 4K/higher resolution display modes if the PS4 was connected to a 1080p screen, for no real reason. Now you can toggle this setting on and have the system downsample a 1440p image (or whatever it is) to your 1080p TV, giving you a nice extra bit of anti-aliasing.

 

And you can now download a benchmarking tool for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV PC port.

 

EDIT - Here's an interesting new thing called The Peterson Case, a horror game set in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947:

 

 

It starts with the player walking down a long hallway towards a woman in a fancy dress with her back turned, and I was very impressed that she didn't turn around and scream with a big horrible giant mouth that opened too far when he reached her.

 

EDIT - This Kingdom Hearts 3 business looks like a pretty neat thing to play. Not, like, understand the story of, but certainly play :P
