Xbox One Console Sales Are Abysmal In Japan

about X hours ago from

Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight recently released in Japan but was outsold by a game that we think is about a ghost busting cat. Even more surprising is how terrible Microsoft’s sales of the Xbox One have been.

Gematsu recently got their hands on last week's video game sales numbers for the Japanese market. Batman: Arkham Knight has actually sold pretty well in the country, but was still beat out by Yo-kai Watch, a Pokémon-like RPG about ghosts developed by Professor Layton developers Level-5. Check out the top five games in Japan for the week of July 13.

More interestingly is a look at Japan's hardware sales. Below you can see that the PlayStation 4 is still going strong, selling over 15 thousand units in a week. By contrast, the Xbox One didn't even sell 150 units last week. Even Sony's Vita is selling better than the Xbox One.

The video below is from YouTube's CryZENx. You can watch Charmander breathe fire and run along the sprawling green fields, filled with trees and a pack of wandering deer.

about X hours ago from

The remake of the 1976 sci-fi film Logan's Run has been in production purgatory for nearly 15 years, but a new addition to the team might change that. Writer and producer Simon Kinberg has been hired on by Warner Bros. to move the film forward.

The script for Logan's Run has been worked on and redone by quite a few writers, including BioShock creator Ken Levine. Though he isn't on the project anymore, some of Levine's work could still make it into the film.

"People been asking if Kinberg working from my draft on Logan's Run," Levine tweeted, "Don't know, word is one major thing at least is surviving. Learned a lot."

Madden NFL 16 ranked Seattle Seahawks' player Marshawn Lynch as the league's best running back in the NFL, assigning him 99 in stiff arm, 98 in trucking, 91 in elusiveness, and more. Despite these lofty scores, the Seahawks thought their all-star deserved better.

QuakeCon Attendees Who Gave Blood Last Year Saved 320 Lives

about X hours ago from

American Red Cross' blood drive at last year's QuakeCon was a huge success, so much so that they reached out to Bethesda Softworks and id Software and asked if they could be a part of this year's show. During QuakeCon 2015's opening keynote today, Pete Hines, Bethesda's vice president of public relations and marketing, said that the blood donated by show attendees last year saved 320 lives.

People who donate blood at this year's show walk away with an exclusive Doom water bottle that looks like a blood bag. If you are at QuakeCon, and wish to give blood, head to the Topaz Room on Friday or Saturday between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

The Fallout Anthology Stuffs Series' Entire PC Library Into A Nuke

about X hours ago from

Bethesda announced today at QuakeCon 2015 that Fallout fans can buy an entire bundled collection of every title in the series released on PC. The physical edition of the collection also comes packaged in a cool nuclear bomb replica. At least, we think it's a replica.

The collection includes five titles: Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and all the additional content that released for those titles. The physical set even includes an empty spot reserved for the upcoming Fallout 4.

The Fallout Anthology of PC titles will be available digitally and in physical form on September 29. Act fast though, because Bethesda's Pete Hines says via Twitter that supplies of the mini-nuke edition will be limited.
