Creators Update Bringing Better Broadcasting, Audio Improvments, And Tournaments To Windows 10 Gaming

The Creators Update, which adds a number of new features to Windows 10, is coming this spring, and with it come a few goodies for Windows gaming.

Game broadcasting is getting a big improvement with the inclusion of Beam. Beam is popular interactive live streaming software, and it will be integrated directly into Windows 10 gaming. A quick key press will bring up a bar, which has a number of buttons built-in, like 'start broadcast,' which will alert your followers you are streaming. It will also place a small window on screen showing your stream and your chat window.

Custom tournaments are also coming to Windows 10. Players will be able to pick games, set tournament types and styles, set the time the tournament will be taking place, and send out invites all from one window. It will also track all the affiliated stats of the tournament for you. Where applicable, Xbox One players and Windows 10 players will be able to participate in tournaments together. Microsoft used Killer Instinct as an example on stage at its Windows 10 Event.

Nintendo Reports Sales Decline

Nintendo has reported a 33-percent net sales decline for the period of April 1 through September 30 of this year (compared to the same period in 2015) due to a general lack of software for the Wii U.

As a result of the console's decline – sales during the period were roughly half of the 1.1 million units sold worldwide for the same period in 2015 – and the lack of games sales for it, interest in Amiibo figures also declined ("reduced to 3.8 million units for figure-type and 1.7 million units for card-type").

As per usual, however, the handheld department fared better. The 3DS sold 2.7 million units worldwide, an improvement on last year.

Report: Uncharted Movie Back On Track, Lands A Director

You can never count Nathan Drake out. After last month's reports of the forever-in-development Uncharted film being delayed indefinitely, Deadline is reporting that the project is back on track with Shawn Levy signing on as director.

Levy has directed a number of comedies in the past, including the Night at the Museum trilogy and the Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson buddy flick, The Internship. His recent credits include directing two episodes of Stranger Things (with more slated for season 2), and producing the upcoming sci-fi drama, Arrival.

September's indefinite delay was rumored to be so that the film's script writer, Joe Carnahan, could direct the movie as well, but Deadline is reporting that Carnahan is instead focusing on Bad Boys For Life, which he was previously committed to. Deadline says the movie is now on the fast track, though we still don't have an ETA on when the film will be released, or who will be playing the series' all-important roles.
