Watch The New Trailer For Pixar's The Good Dinosaur

A new trailer for Pixar's next film, The Good Dinosaur, is online for your viewing pleasure. It's hard to make out the story from this brief look at the film, but it looks like another magical journey of friendship from one of the best movie studios out there.

The Good Dinosaur is directed by Peter Sohn, written by Enrico Casarosa and Bob Peterson, and stars Raymond Ochoa as Arlo. It hits theaters on November 25. Here's hoping Pixar continues the trend of releasing two films each year. They rarely disappoint.

Report: 2K Sports Might Be Bringing Back College Basketball

Report: 2K Sports Might Be Bringing Back College Basketball

Today, ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell stated on his Twitter that 2K Sports has obtained the licenses for at least 10 college basketball teams and will have some sort of college basketball offering for players.

Recently, speculation occurred that 2K Sports had something in the works after Operation Sports was able to confirm licensing for a set of teams using the The Collegiate Licensing Company's database (which handles most licensing for NCAA products). Unfortunately, after the report gained some traction, 2K no longer appears using the search for any of the teams it was previously listed under (Arizona, Arizona State, Connecticut, Georgetown, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan, Texas, UCLA, Villanova and Wisconsin.)  However, a recent leaked achievement list for NBA 2K16 also pointed to some involvement with college teams.

2K has indeed gotten the licenses to at least 10 college teams & will have college basketball.

Industry Analysts Don't Expect Miyamoto To Succeed Iwata

Industry Analysts Don't Expect Miyamoto To Succeed Iwata

The gaming industry lost one of its beloved figured unexpectedly over a week ago. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata's death sent waves through the gaming community, with people reminiscing his passion for games and kind spirit. In these sad times, it's tough to think of anything else, but Nintendo will need to pick a successor eventually. Who has the best shot, though?

Some people speculated almost immediately that designer and general manager Shigeru Miyamoto's would take the mantle. Miyamoto is one of the most visible faces of the company, but industry analysts aren't convinced he'll be the one assuming the position. 

GamesIndustry.biz recently asked several analysts who they think Iwata's successor will be; unsurprisingly, most think it will be an internal candidate, but are doubtful it will be Miyamoto. It seems as though hardware manager Genyo Takeda is a front runner in the speculation.

PSA: If You're Having Problems Downloading Journey On PS4, A Fix Is On The Way

Journey is out for PlayStation 4 today, and if you own the PlayStation 3 version, you will get the PlayStation 4 version for free, but it's not working right now.

Attempting to download the game, myself, I was greeted with the image below which said I couldn't buy it because I already owned it, but it offered no download link either on the PlayStation Store web browser, or on my PlayStation 4.

Well, that's confusing. I'm trying to download Journey on PlayStation 4. pic.twitter.com/QEhUytJssi

Hot Toys Is Unveiling An 18-Foot Millennium Falcon This Weekend

From July 24 through 28, attendees of this year's Ani-Com and Games Hong Kong expo have the chance to see a replica Millennium Falcon toy created by Hot Toys that measures 18 feet in length and 12 feet in width. This Falcon is a part of Hot Toys' 1/6 scale series of figures and vehicles.

Hot toys had previously announced it was making a 1/6 scale version of the Millennium Falcon's cockpit (see image below). The cockpit is expected to hit retail shelves at some point in the near future, but no word has been given on whether or not the 18-foot Falcon will be available for purchase. 

PS4 Getting Officially Licensed Media Remote

PS4 Getting Officially Licensed Media Remote

If you spend time streaming movies and other media on your PlayStation 4, you may have come to the conclusion that the console's Dualshock 4 isn't the optimal way to navigate menus. With that in mind, peripheral maker PDP is stepping up with an officially licensed media remote.

The remote is priced at $30, and is pegged for an October release. In addition to controlling the PS4's media functionality, the device will also control supported televisions, receivers, and cable boxes. The device boasts a 6-month battery life, which certainly beats the alternative.

It may not be a game-changing piece of technology, but it's bound to be a welcome addition in homes where the PS4 is the central entertainment hub. There's something to be said for the simplicity of a standard remote, particularly in how it doesn't have trigger buttons or analog sticks that are easily jostled by less-aware family members.

about X hours ago from

It's not uncommon to see major releases bundled in with consoles to help bolster sales, but the latest Xbox One bundle brings more than your average bundle. In addition to packing in a digital copy of the newest version of EA Sports' popular football franchise, the newly announced Xbox One Madden NFL 16 bundle includes a year subscription of EA Access.

EA Access, which is valued at $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year, grants you access to the EA Vault, which includes unlimited access to full versions of games such as Battlefield 4, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, and Titanfall. In addition, the Vault will be adding Game Informer's 2014 Game of the Year, Dragon Age: Inquisition, later this summer. EA Access subscribers also get limited early access to games from Electronic Arts (including Star Wars Battlefront later this year), as well as a 10% discount on all digital purchases of EA games on Xbox One.

The bundle also features a 1 TB internal hard drive, the highest amount of storage currently available for Xbox One. The bundle hits on August 18 for $399, with Madden NFL 16 activating on August 25. However, with the included EA Access membership, those who pick up this bundle will be able to begin checking out Madden NFL 16 on August 20.
