Killer7 Is Now Suddenly Available On Steam

 Although we knew Killer7 was coming to Steam right around now, we weren't sure when, exactly, that would be. Turns out, it's today.

As we mentioned in our recent New Gameplay Today of the game, the PC version is an up-res of the original that includes mouse and keyboard support for $20. You can also nab the game, its soundtrack (which is good if you like creepy ambient noises and club music alike), and digital artbook, for $30. You can grab it for a reduced price until November 22, however.

To see why at least one Game Informer editor thinks it's the greatest game of all time, watch our entire Super Replay of the game, including a guest appearance by director Suda 51.

Sponsor Drops Top Street Fighter V Competitor In Light Of Domestic Abuse Allegations

Lee "Infiltration" Seon-woo has been banned from competing in Capcom's Street Fighter V pro circuit, and has had his contract with sponsor Panda Global terminated, in light of a recent charge of domestic violence.

The issue first came to light in September, when an anonymous Reddit user alleged Seon-woo had been assaulting his ex-wife since September of last year, after his loss in that year's Evo tournament. They alleged Seon-woo "blamed his wife for his loss in the tournament," and had destroyed her property and attacked her. "One day she tried to call police but Infiltration snatched her phone and choked her to near death and dragged her out of the apartment but fortunately neighbor saw him beating his wife and called police," the user said.

In the wake of the allegations, Panda Global began investigating Seon-woo, while according to the sponsor, Seon-woo "voluntarily withdrew from competing, streaming, and social media," during the investigation, including an exhibition at this year's Tokyo Game Show scheduled for that weekend. "[Seon-woo] maintains that the accusations against him are false and he is innocent of assault," the company said.

Sony Interactive Entertainment Is Not Attending E3 In 2019

Sony Interactive Entertainment Is Not Attending E3 In 2019

The history of the Electronic Entertainment Expo is as long as it is circuitous. The annual event has traditionally brought the entire gaming industry together as developers and publishers fight for attention both on and off the show floor through announcements, trailers, and pomp and circumstance. The displays of grandeur have ebbed and flowed over the course of E3's soon-to-be 25-year history, with different companies occasionally reconsidering the extent of their involvement in the show. Now one of its biggest players, Sony, has decided that PlayStation will not be attending E3 in 2019.

“As the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for inventive opportunities to engage the community," the company told Game Informer in a statement. "PlayStation fans mean the world to us and we always want to innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to delight gamers. As a result, we have decided not to participate in E3 in 2019. We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can’t wait to share our plans with you.”

When asked if Sony would push its event off-site, similar to how Electronic Arts provides a show adjacent to E3, PlayStation senior vice president of communications Jennifer Clark elaborated further saying, "We will not activate or hold a press conference around E3."

Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aimé Says There Are Currently No Plans For An N64 Classic

In a recent interview with Kotaku to advertise Nintendo’s upcoming holiday lineup, Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aimé said that there are currently no plans for an N64 Classic.

“We were clear when we did the first two Classic series that, for us, these were limited time opportunities that were a way for us as a business to bridge from the conclusion of Wii U as a hardware system to the launch of Nintendo Switch,” he said. “That was the very strategic reason we launched the NES Classic system.”

When asked if it was a possibility, the CEO said “I would not ever rule something out, but what I can tell you is certainly that’s not in our planning horizon.”

Special Editions With Early Access Selling Well, Say Publishers And Retailers

Special Editions With Early Access Selling Well, Say Publishers And Retailers

You've likely noticed the recent trend of high-budget games from big publishers getting special editions that include getting access to a game a few days early. Well, if the publishers and the stores that help promote those editions are any indication, you can expect that trend to stick around, as those editions seem to be doing quite well.

GamesIndustry.biz reports that both publishers and retailers say the early access perk has proved quite popular among buyers. UK and Spanish game retailer GAME, which often partners with game publishers to get exclusivity on early editions on some of their games, tells GamesIndustry.biz that it's been a strong incentive for people to spend extra on certain games. "I don't think it's something that we want to see to widespread, because it creates uncertainty in terms of release dates," GAME CEO Martyn Gibbs. "But the trials that we have done, and the ones that we've launched so far this year, have worked really well."

Several games this year have offered early access with their special editions, including Forza Horizon 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Battlefield V, all of which involve paying extra.
