Sony continues to lean heavily on the strength of its game and network services division. The unit, which houses PlayStation consoles, first-party software, and PlayStation Network operations was responsible for 58 percent of the company’s operating income in the first fiscal quarter of FY17.
Sales for the division increased 14.5 percent during the period, as software sales climbed. The company also says it is realizing cost reductions related to production of PlayStation 4 consoles aiding the operating income growth.
PlayStation Network revenues made up 46 percent of segment sales. This is up 38 percent year-over-year.
The company has revised downward its expectations for the year, as foreign exchange rates are having an impact on revenue. The Yen continues to climb, which is having an impact on the income statement.
Company-wide revenues dipped 10.8 percent to $15.7 billion. Net income remained in the black, but dropped precipitously year-over-year by 74.3 percent to $205 million.
Sony has announced plans for a new console. Details are still fuzzy around the PlayStation Neo, but we understand that it will support existing PlayStation 4 software.
Our TakeIt’s too early to suggest what kind of impact the Neo announcement will have on PlayStation 4 sales. The news was only confirmed during the final month of the quarter and we don’t have a month-to-month breakdown of retail traffic.
Given that Sony is touting the success of Uncharted 4 in its earnings report, it’s conceivable that a significant portion of console sales were tied to its early May release. We’ll have a better sense of Neo announcement impact in the next quarter.
Hearthstone's next single-player adventure explores the nostalgia-laden fan-favorite raid dungeon, Karazhan. Starting on August 11, players can begin to explore the first wing of the adventure, with new wings opening over the course of a month, similar to how other adventure content has been rolled out for Blizzard's digital card game.
One Night in Karazhan features 45 new cards and includes characters and settings that players will recall from the now-ancient 10-person raid instance, such as the Opera event and the enchanted chessboard.
Players will be able to take on heroic mode for a card back after unlocking all the cool new cards, which will also be added to Arena as each wing opens.
Players will be able to take on a prologue mission in Karazhan for free, which rewards two new cards. Single wings of the dungeon will be available for 700 gold (in-game currency) or $6.99 each to unlock, or players can opt to purchase the entire bundle for $19.99.
Check out some of the new cards below!

If you encounter this strange Pokémon Go server error, run.
Thanks to Nukazooka for putting together this amusing video about the perils of Pokémon Go. Be sure to check out our man on the street video of the game as well as our breakdown on the epic search to find Ditto.
Those who helped fund the making of this Banjo Kazooie spiritual successor can get their hands on an early version of the game.
Playtonic successfully Kickstarted Yooka-Laylee last year, and those who helped back the project will be able to check in on the game and see how it's coming along thanks to the release of Toybox, a "spoiler-free sandbox" that allows players to experiment with the game’s basic moves, play with custom-built props, and interact with a brand new NPC character. Those who are getting the code should have received it today, so check your email.
See Yooka-Laylee in action in the game's recent E3 trailer.
Our TakeThis is a neat mode for those who want to see how Yooka-Laylee is coming along, but I'm more interested in playing the game when Playtonic has a polished level they feel good about.
Fantasy Flight is no stranger to adapting popular video game franchises to the tabletop. Starcraft, Gears of War, and XCOM have all made the transition with success. Id Software’s Doom is the latest to get the board game treatment.
Doom pits a group of up to four players in control of marines against another player taking on the role of Hell’s forces. The Invader player will get to summon forces through portals around the modular, tile-based map.
Each of the six included missions has different objectives and special rules. Items and weapons are handled with cards, and each round of play is based on initiative draws that dictate when marines can move and attack and when the forces of Hell press in. Death is a certainty, but the marines can only respawn a set number of times before losing the mission.
Doom appears to build on Fantasy Flight’s experience with asymmetric games like Descent and Star Wars: Imperial Assault. It also seems to build on themes similar to the Gears of War tabletop game but instead of enemies that function on an “AI” system, a player takes control here.
Doom will be in stores during holiday 2016. For more, check out the full rundown on Fantasy Flight's website.
On August 3 Titan Comics will be releasing the first in its Dishonored series of comic books.
Written by Gordon Rennie (Doctor Who, 2000 AD), and illustrated Andrea Olimpieri and Marcelo Maiolo, the series was first announced in May priced at $3.99 and is split into four parts. The remaining three volumes will be released through to October, and in November will be collected into a graphic novel.
The story takes place 12 years after the events in the first Dishonored game, and before the beginning of Dishonored 2. It follows Corvo Attano's returns to Dunwall in search of an apprentice, but he is soon drawn into a supernatural conspiracy threatening the city.
The first issue will have four covers to collect, including three art covers by artists Fabio Listrani,
Andrea Olimpieri, and Charles Bae, and a game cover which you can see below. If you can't wait until next week, you can see the first four pages of the comic here.
DICE is about to unify your Battlefield experience on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This summer, the studio is implementing a new user interface that will allow you to launch any of the three games available on current-generation consoles.
Battlefield 4 is getting attention first, with additional new features. Soon, you’ll be able to squad up before matches. The new user interface will also include a recommendation engine that suggests maps and modes for you and your team.
These features will also be in place when Battlefield 1 launches on October 21. After that, they’ll roll out to Hardline.
Once implemented, you’ll be able to take your party to any one of the Battlefield games you own from the same menu. You’ll be able to go from cops-and-robbers to contemporary China or back to the trenches of World War 1.
The new UI is in beta right now with a limited test audience. That pool will grow over time, and DICE will be sharing information on how you’ll be able to participate in the future.
For more on Battlefield 1, check out our coverage from E3.

Doom's double XP weekend runs until August 1. For our verdict on all the game has to offer, check out our review.
Update 2: Activision tells us that one of the issues has now been repaired. If you're playing on Xbox One, achievements should unlock properly.
We are still waiting for responses to our other questions about performance and DLC. We'll update as we learn more.
Update 1: While we're still waiting to hear from Activision related to our requests, Marvel Games has chimed in about the situation. Creative director Bill Rosemann took to Twitter to let fans know the company hears them.
#UltimateAlliance fans, we hear you & are sharing your concerns w/ our friends at @Activision! Please stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/lxBEwtkrle

#UltimateAlliance fans, we hear you & are sharing your concerns w/ our friends at @Activision! Please stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/lxBEwtkrle
We'll continue to monitor this story and update as more information emerges.
The pair of Marvel Ultimate Alliance games from last generation, while not without flaws, are great expressions of the comics. That’s why fans are so disappointed with Activision’s troubled ports to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The games cost $40 each or $60 in a bundle. Unfortunately, there are no noticeable improvements beyond slightly retouched graphics and improved resolution and, in the case of the PC editions, there are major control and visual issues.
That system reportedly doesn’t recognize controller inputs properly and can’t be easily mapped to keyboard and mouse. Additionally, the PC version is missing visual options that were present a decade ago in the originals.
The Xbox One versions, which are out today, are missing achievements entirely. The DLC for Ultimate Alliance 2 is intact, but the Xbox 360 exclusive characters released for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 are nowhere to be found in any of the new versions.
Making the situation worse, the Xbox One version’s description claims you can play as Hulk. This is outright false without the DLC as he was sold in a bundle with Cyclops, Nightcrawler, and Hawkeye after launch.
This description can't even be attributed to a cut-and-paste of the Xbox 360 Games on Demand version. That edition does include the DLC, so if it were a transpositional error, it would least be explained. Here is that synopsis straight from the Xbox 360 product page:
The Games on Demand version supports English and Italian. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance lets players create their ultimate team from the largest superhero alliance ever as they engage in an epic quest to determine the fate of the Marvel universe.
Players can control their own completely unique team by selecting from the largest roster of legendary superheroes ever assembled in one game. Through the epic campaign, the heroes will battle, team-up, and interact with over 140 characters from the Marvel universe and ultimately confront notorious villains.
The Steam reviews are filled with frustration. Even many of the (currently) 14 positive comments express reservations.
I recommend this game, but do so with a heavy heart. I’ll undoubtedly get great value, personally, but am very disappointed in the lack of content that SHOULD have been released, and for the price I payed. If I could give it a more medium judgement, I would. That said, the game is just as great as I remembered. - Knolin
This port most definitely has some control issues. The first half hour of owning this game was spent messing with and tweaking the custon kbm controls. It is a sin that you cannot change any aspect of using a controller and that half of the inputs don't work anyway. But if you can look past all of those problems and put on a nice pair of rose tinted nostalgia glasses, this game is great. - Jacksmash
Sooo yeah, the game looks great still, holds up well. I am giving it the thumbs up becuase there will be a lot of fun to be had....eventually. As most others have said already, the controls are waaaaaaay screwed up. This will be a fun game once/if they fix the controls. i.e. L/R triggers dont do anything, L/R bumpers act as L/R Triggers, when it prompts you to hit the A button its mapped to the X button, the D pad does not select other party members to play as it should etc etc etc. - JohnDStafford
The negative user reviews are far more damning. Many users have requested refunds because the controls simply do not work.
Games buggy as all hell. Avoid until fixed, refund has been requested. - TacoMouth
Ten years since it was released and no one thought to play-test the thing when they brought it back to life?? This is absolutely shameful, first time in many years of using Steam that I'm going to have to look into a refund.. controller support is a joke. For a 10-year-old but still full price game, this should at least work. - UsedMoose
I'll agree with everyone else here: this game is a bug-ridden disaster. I can't believe that any company, even Activision, could release a game in this sorry state. And it's not even a new effing game!! Ten years ago, I loved this game. Now, I'm embarrassed to even admit that. Activision, you should be ashamed. - UltraLoser
We’ve reached out to Activision to get clarity on the DLC issue for Marvel Ultimate Alliance. We’ve also asked about plans for repairing the broken PC versions. We’ll update should we receive a response.
Our TakeI don’t have a philosophical problem with remasters and current-gen ports. But Activision doesn’t seem to be putting any resources behind them. The Prototype updates weren’t great. Deadpool saw little polish or care. Now Ultimate Alliance, which could very well be a revived series, has been given the short shrift.
I can only hope that Marvel isn’t using sales of these travesties to gauge interest for another entry. I am confident that were these ports done with care, there would be an enormous market. Instead, they were kicked out the door broken and unloved.
The Call of the Beastmen DLC is out now for Total War: Warhammer. Even if you don't buy the game's first campaign pack, giving the titular Beastmen a story campaign and more, the game has some new stuff in store for you.
The Amber Wizard is available for everybody, whether you buy the campaign DLC or not, and the hero can call in manticores for battle. Also available for the game is Update 2, which includes an A.I.-controlled opposition race, four new custom and multiplayer battle maps, an unlockable lord for those custom/MP battles, and much more. Click on the second link below for expanded details.

Our TakeI'm curious if making some of the free content related to the paid DLC will lead more players to eventually purchase the paid content.
It’s the one-year anniversary of Minecraft on Windows 10, and the Mojang team is celebrating. Today marks the release of a new Villains skin pack and a roller coaster map, but a bigger update is on the way soon.
Minecraft is coming to Oculus Rift at long last in the next few weeks. We’ve known the game would support the Rift since Oculus Connect 2 in September 2015. It launched on Gear VR in April.
Those that own the more fully featured, PC-powered headset won’t need to pay for the update when it arrives. It’ll be delivered entirely free.
Later, Minecraft on Windows 10 will support simple modifications of creature behavior via editing simple text JSON files. We saw the feature in action at E3 with amusing results, including speedy creepers, exploding chickens, and aggressive sheep.
Minecraft on Windows 10 is still in beta, and receiving regular updates. For more recent additions, check out our previous coverage.

Capcom is backloading its fiscal year 2017 releases, pushing major games into the holiday and beyond. The company reports a significant sales dip and net loss for the first quarter of its fiscal year.
Revenues dropped 25 percent to ¥10.9 billion ($103.7 million). Combined with a foreign exchange loss of ¥1.3 billion ($12.7 million), Capcom reported a net loss of ¥1.4 billion ($13.4 million) for the quarter.
Capcom says that its sales dip was due largely to releasing only “minor titles” during the period. The company points to Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice (released in Japan on June 6) as performing as expected. The company also released the critically panned Umbrella Chronicles during the quarter.
The company has a few titles on the horizon, including the long awaited Resident Evil 7. Revealed at E3, the game will be out in January. Capcom is also re-releasing Resident Evil 4 in August.
The Dead Rising series will have a big year, too. Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will see release on current-gen consoles. Dead Rising 1 will also be making its way to PC for the first time. Dead Rising 4 is due out later this year for Xbox One and PC.
Our TakeIt’s too early to tell where Capcom’s year is headed. Monster Hunter Generations sales from the western release have yet to be reported. Dead Rising has typically performed well, and the company has done right by its remasters. Resident Evil 4 is the update people are waiting for, so it’s likely to sell well. As for Resident Evil 7, we still don’t know quite what to make of it, but we’re curious.
Last year, Nordic Games gave Darksiders II’s Death another shot at life in a “Deathinitive edition.” This year, the publisher gives us another oddly named update.
Darksiders “Warmastered” Edition will be out later this year for current-generation consoles and PC. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will support 60 frames per second. The Wii U edition sports 30 frames per second, with the PC version pushing 4K resolution if you have the hardware to power it. All three consoles will offer native 1080p support.
Nordic Games acquired Vigil’s Darksiders franchise from THQ’s bankruptcy. The series has laid dormant since 2012, when Darksiders II was released, with fans cautiously hopeful we’d see the final two planned installments.
The Darksiders series takes place after the end of the world. In the first title, the Horseman War is accused of bringing about the apocalypse prematurely. He must fight to clear his name.
Artist Joe Madureira, whose style defines the two existing Darksiders games, has moved on to a new studio. Airship Syndicate successfully raised funds on Kickstarter for Battle Chasers: Nightwar (also being published by Nordic Games).
Vigil Games has since disbanded, with a number of members back together at Gunfire Games. That studio is responsible for the excellent Oculus Rift title Chronos and, in fact, the Darksiders II Deathinitive edition. KAIKO, which worked on the Deathinitive Edition and The Legend of Kay Anniversary will be handling the ports.
Darksiders "Warmastered" Edition will be out on October 25 for $19.99 on consoles and $14.99 on PC.
Note: Additional details added.
[Source: Nordic Games]
Our TakeDarksiders was a fresh take on the classic Zelda formula. With compelling art, a clever story, and engaging gameplay, it won a loyal following. The sequel improved on much of the first game’s foundation, but Darksiders is absolutely worth your time if you’ve not played it.
Two Kirby games form two different platforms are heading to the Wii U's Virtual Console tomorrow.
Kirby's Epic Yarn came out in 2010 for the Wii and was one of the first Nintendo games to adopt a yarn aesthetic. Kirby Mass Attack released for the DS in 2011 and tasked players with controlling a large group of Kirbys (Kirbies?) using the stylus.
Both games will be available on Wii U tomorrow. Epic Yarn will be $19.99 and Mass Attack will be $9.99.
[Source: Nintendo, (1)]
Our TakeI never had a chance to play Mass Attack, but I've always felt Epic Yarn is too simple. I love its art style, but remember it being a chore to complete as I rarely felt challenged. I love its art style, though.

In a new video for Titanfall 2, lead designer Jon Shiring discussed how the game's server hosting will be on multiple clouds and "bare metal" servers in order to support Titanfall 2's predictably larger launch.
The original Titanfall used Microsoft's Azure cloud for 100% of its
multiplayer. Its successor will use a combination of that same cloud from Microsoft, as well as Google's cloud and Amazon's cloud. On top of that ,Titanfall 2 will also be run on "bare metal boxes," which are physical servers in data centers across the world that will be rented for certain amounts of time.
Respawn has partnered with gaming service company Multiplay in order to build this brand-new server method, which will attempt to synchronize a variety of different hosting services in order to provide seamless online gameplay for the player. In a blog post about the server change, Shriing stated "...it's an entirely new system that no game has used before, and Respawn felt strongly that we should work with Multiplay to build this new service to meet our needs."
In order to test out this new service, Repawn and Multiplay are hosting a multiplayer tech test before Titanfall 2's October 28 launch. New matchmaking systems will be tested, including a feature called "networks" that will "...change the way you party up and play matches with friends" according to another blog post regarding the tech test.
Respawn is asking for as many players as they can get to playtest their multiplayer on this unique server hosting network in order to find as many bugs as possible before launch. The multiplayer tech test doesn't have a start date yet, but if you wish to test out Titanfall 2 before release then you can sign up for emails from EA here in order to get the news first and start as soon as possible.
Our TakeIt's interesting to see a new approach to server networks that split up the load between both cloud and physical servers. If using Microsoft's, Google's, and Amazon's clouds simultaneously backfires in some unpredictable way, they will have the bare metal servers to keep them somewhat afloat during Titanfall 2's (presumably busy) launch.
Legendary Digital Studios announced it is partnering with both Square Enix and dj2 Entertainment to adapt Life Is Strange into a live-action digital series. It is being co-produced by Dmitri Johnson and Dan
Jevons, who both recently produced the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog film coming from Sony.
Senior vice president of development at Legendary, Greg Sielgel, announced the project today via press release, saying the game "lends itself perfectly
to live-action imaginings." Square Enix's VP of brand and
European marketing, Jon Brooke, shared excitement for the project, saying the publisher is excited to "realize a new version of [game locations] Arcadia Bay and Blackwell Academy." The three companies – Square Enix, dj2, and Legendary – are currently meeting with potential writers for the series. No director has been announced.
It was recently announced that Life Is Strange's first episode will be free indefinitely. We recently noted Life Is Strange's soundtrack in our feature looking the best uses of licensed songs in video games.
The annual celebration of id Software's franchises and PC gaming, QuakeCon, is coming to Dallas, Texas next week. This year, QuakeCon is partnering with a number of charities in hopes to give back to the community. Acting as North America's largest LAN party, the festival starts on August 4 and runs through August 7. id Software and Bethesda Softworks promise to reveal more details about some of their upcoming games at the event as well as hosting competitive tournaments. The national and local charities that will be present at QuakeCon include the American Red Cross, 1Up On Cancer, Dallas Pets Alive, and Extra Life.American Red Cross will be hosting a blood drive on-site, that participants can register for online ahead of the event. Donors will receive a limited edition Bethesda T-shirt based on the design from this year's E3 presentation, seen below.
Dallas Pets Alive will also have a presence at QuakeCon, accepting donations and bringing pets that visitors can adopt. The local charity will be holding raffles all weekend long for signed merchandise and a custom Vault-Tech themed Xbox One system.
Extra Life and 1UP On Cancer are both gaming-based fundraising groups that will be present and raising awareness and money during the weekend. The full schedule of panels and events for QuakeCon 2016 was recently revealed, which you can see here.
Update: 2K has informed us that while Charles Barkley is indeed included in the 1992 Dream Team deal, he will not be appearing in any other historic teams he's played on.
Original Story: NBA 2K17 is not only getting the 2016 Men's USA Basketball team, but also the famed 1992 USA Dream Team featuring Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Magic Johnson.
As part of the deal, USA basketball and famed Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski will also be in the game, and is featured in a new tutorial mode. A bigger plus for players is that fact that the Dream Team is the full roster – including Charles Barkley.
To get Sir Charles and the rest of the Dream Team – as well as a USA Basketball MyPlayer jersey – you have to pre-order the title.
Further details such as the length of the partnership and the modes involved were not announced.
[Source: 2K Sports]
Our TakeWith the inclusion of Barkley, we wonder if this paves the way for his historic Suns and 76ers teams to be in the game as well.
Pokémon Go player Ra1nDr0pz has laid claim to being the first player in the world to hit the game's level 40 cap. Up until now the feat has seemed impossible, given how slow leveling is.
And, as it turns out, the accomplishment very well might be out of reach right now. Ra1nDr0pz, who goes by the name Problemz on Reddit, posted an image of his achievement on the forum (which you can see below), but later revealed he cheated and used a bot to max out his character level. He's asked Niantic to delete his account, and said he didn't partake in any gym battles, saying "I dont want to take anyone of the fun out of this game.
If you do PVP (no matter which game) play legit or don't play."
If this level 40 claim is true, Problemz says players need to farm five million experience points to move from level 39 to 40. Progression from level zero to 40 requires players earn 20 million XP. This mirrors data mined information we reported on over the weekend.
Using the bot, Problemz says he was earning 280,000 XP an hour, on average. He used a total of 131 Lucky Eggs to double the XP during the leveling process.
Problemz refuses to sell the account, despite numerous people asking if they could purchase it from him. He also won't reveal any details about the bot he used. The images above and below are from Problemz account, and show just how big his Pokémon got at the end of his play time.
Our TakeGiven how greatly the XP increases for each level in Pokémon Go, Niantic
clearly envisions players sticking with this game for years. Will it have the content to back it up? That's the big question on everyone's mind, and the radio silence on updates from Ninantic at this point are worrying, although the trailer makes it look like we will at least get trading and some form of a raid in the future.
