I really really really like this new look. It is wonderful. My hats off to everyone that made it work.

In the way of bugs the only thing I can spot is that some of the staff pictures are the old version on the home page rather than the brilliant ones done by Anni.

Also is there any reason why OX (of both green and purple varieties) aren't listed in the Gamer Network links on the bottom right?

Any chance of getting a round up of good prices for Assassins Creed: Origins? I think that will be my first purchase next week.

Yay! Delighted to have this back. I was enjoying it on my drive to work.

I am off for the next five weeks, so there's going to be another gap opening up. Sincere apologies! You raised my hopes and dashed them quite extravagantly but seriously I hope all is well.

Assassin's Creed 3 ending analysis

@vasubangera It's almost like you didn't even read to the end of the article.

Apparently the end of Liberations does make a reference to a plot point from earlier games that has seemingly been forgotten. I assume that is where the next games will go in the modern era bits.

Nintendo: 3DS XL not big enough to fit second circle pad

You can not change the controls of a handheld through a hardware revision. Just like when people were shouting about the original PSP getting a second nub with it's revisions, just let it die, IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

Nintendo 3DS XL Circle Pad Pro confirmed

@murphy1978

If the 3DSXL came with two pads then the developers would be pushing twin stick shooters out the door before the end of the year and therefore games that forced the user to either buy a 3DSXL or a CPP.

@photoboy

And without a Dualshock controller no one could enjoy the marvellous Ape Escape. Not that fair.

@Ryze

No it's not. Forza has joypad control scheme as standard. What we are talking about is developers being able to block out 3DS owners from playing their games without buying an attachment.

As an old style 3DS owner, I think this a great idea.

If the 3DS XL came with the second circle pad, then everyone with an original 3DS would be forced into buying the CCP as developers would take it as a given that everyone had two sticks.

Imagine if one of the original PSP re-designs came with a second stick, the fragmentation of it's user base would have been a night mare.

Surely Microsoft could request a take down if it was fake under the guise that it is harmful to their company and raising peoples expectations to an unreasonable level?

Eurogamer plays Wii U horror ZombiU

@porkface That's excellent, thank you.

Seems to be a change of opinion by people that have played since E3 that its actually going to be ok which fills me with some more hope.

Can't wait to read the rest.

@porkface Cheers but how about the rest of the games from this week, or the Wii U experience as a whole?

It is great to see some more Wii U footage but a written hands on of the whole experience wouldn't go a miss.

Gaikai to bring backwards compatability back to PS3

@mr2ange Then yes that would be backwards compatibility. I just struggle to see it turning out that way.

I'm pretty sure Backwards Compatibility means I can play the games I've already bought. I don't see this allowing me to do that.

@vizzini Ok. That is one thing but the conference is probably going to be about 2 hours long. That's either a lot of stuff already announced or a truck load of surprises.

Surely Sony can't have anything left for E3? The last couple of weeks have just been announcement full.

I'll be honest I do have a little bit of love for Hiroshi Matsuyama. He genuinely seems to love Naruto and making the games. He even raps (kind of) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PYGzit3qlo

Activision announces new James Bond game 007 Legends

In 2002, Eurocom pumped out James Bond 007: Nightfire (PS2, GameCube, Xbox). And Eurogamer rubbished it with a 3/10.
What???? Nightfire was amazing. A hell of a lot of fun playing that.

Sega transfers GAME-exclusive Yakuza: Dead Souls DLC to other shops

People need to stop with a number of things when it comes to these stories:

1) Suggesting EG should only have stories about what games GAME will be stocking.
2) Complaining that EG are doing these stories. (People need to know)
3) The now really tired GAME over line.

PlayStation Vita worldwide sales hit 1.2 million

mcmahonman

6 years ago

Well Wikipedia gives me the following numbers for the 3DS:

Japan - 374,764 - Launch Weekend
US - 440,000 - Launch Week
EU - 303,000 - Launch two days

Total = 1,117,764

So considering the Vita has been in Japan for 2 months already then the slight launch edge goes to Nintendo.

Really close though.
