Report: AT&T Looking To Sell Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

AT&T is shopping Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the gaming division of WarnerMedia, to several video game publishers according to a report from CNBC. The gaming unit of Warner could fetch a price of $4 billion for whatever company ends up purchasing it, with potential interested parties including Take-Two Interactive, Electronic Arts, and Activision Blizzard.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is comprised of developers such as NetherRealm Studios (Mortal Kombat, Injustice), Rocksteady Studios (Batman: Arkham), Monolith Productions (Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War), TT Games (Lego franchise), Avalanche Software (Disney Infinity), and several WB studios around North America. The gaming unit also works with licenses such as Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Cars. According to the report, since many of the licenses under the gaming unit, such as Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, are intellectual properties owned by Warner, the deal might feature some sort of commercial-licensing agreement where AT&T would receive part of the revenue from these IPs. 

Replay – Demon's Souls

Replay – Demon's Souls

Demon's Souls is a brutally challenging PlayStation 3 game developed by From Software. Released in 2009, director Hidetaka Miyazaki took a huge risk with this game, which favored player discovery over clear communication of what should be done next, or even how to hurt an enemy. That freedom was embraced by the player base, and the formula From Software established became the foundation for an entire genre of games.

In this episode of Replay, we take a look back at this classic game, and also discuss it's future, as it will soon be re-released on PlayStation 5. Join Alex Stadnik, Dan Tack (Game Informer's "Souls" expert, and me for an hour-long dive into the opening moments of this game.

Update: Insomniac Comments On Spider-Man: Miles Morales PlayStation 5 Expansion Status

Spider-Man: Miles Morales developer Insomniac has sent out a tweet further muddying the question of what the PlayStation 5 game is or isn't.

The developer adds the game is a "standalone" title, not just a DLC expansion to the 2018 Spider-Man title. However, Insomniac's comments don't necessarily refute or completely clear up executive vice president Simon Rutter's earlier comment.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is the next adventure in the Marvel's Spider-Man universe. We will reveal more about this standalone game at a future date. #MilesMoralesPS5 pic.twitter.com/GOTAvNhUaF

Arcade1Up Announces Ms. Pac-Man Cabinet And More

For years, Arcade1Up has brought classic arcade games to the home with a series of 3/4 scale machine that often include multiple games. This week, the company announced its next round of cabinets, which includes iconic games such as Ms. Pac-Man, Marvel vs. Capcom, and Big Buck Hunter. Here's the full breakdown. 

The first new cabinet is Ms. Pac-Man. While this cabinet only features the one title, it is a big one, and according to Arcade1Up, this is the first time Ms. Pac-Man cabinets have been made for home use.

The second cabinet is themed after Capcom's Marvel fighting games and includes two games: Marvel vs. Capcom and X-Men vs. Street Fighter. Unfortunately, we don't know when Arcade1Up plans to release this machine. 

Control Coming To The Next-Gen Home Consoles

Control Coming To The Next-Gen Home Consoles

Control was our Game of the Year for 2019, and developer Remedy has announced that it is bringing the game to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at some point in the future.

Given how both systems can run current-gen titles with graphical upgrades (no word specifically if Control is backwards compatible on the PS5 in particular, but we'd be surprised if it wasn't), it'll be interesting to see if the new consoles can make the game truly attractive enough for a second purchase. Of course, the better load times is one possible reason. Perhaps Remedy will also include Control's Foundation expansion as another.

We're glad to be able to share that @ControlRemedy will be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. More details coming at a later date. #PlayStation5 #XboxSeriesX

Bugsnax Features Living Food In A Whimsical World

Young Horses showed off its latest game during Sony's PlayStation 5 livestream, and it doesn't look like the studio is getting any less weirder. The Octodad creators' latest project is Bugsnax, a bright and cheery-looking game about living strawberries, doughnuts, and other tasty treats.

Sure, sure, we know that a lot of the things we eat are (or were) living. Bugsnax takes things a bit further. For instance, the strawberry we see in the beginning of the trailer sprouts eyes and little legs, and then scurries around. In the clip, we also spy a bunch of other foodstuffs running amok.

As far as what the game is, well, your guess is as good as ours right now. Bugsnax is coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 this holiday season. We'll let you know when we learn more, including whether it's coming to other platforms.
