Razer Turret Keyboard Page Shows Mouse And Keyboard Support For Gears 5, Gears Tactics Heading To Xbox One

As part of its slew of announcements at CES this week, Razer fully unveiled its Turret keyboard, which it's working on with Microsoft to bring PC-like controls to the console. In promoting the games you'll be able to sue the keyboard with, Razer also confirmed Gears 5 will be compatible with the setup.

We already knew a number of titles that would be getting mouse and keyboard support as part of the initiative, but Razer's listing most adds Gears 5 and Sea of Thieves to the mix, among others. It also seems to reveal that Gears Tactics, which was previously announced as only coming to Windows 10, will be headed to Xbox One as well (with mouse of keyboard support, of course). We've reached to Microsoft to confirm whether this is the case.

Gears 5 is scheduled to release sometime in 2019

Resident Evil 2 '1-Shot' Demo Lets You Play The Game For Only 30 Minutes

Resident Evil 2 '1-Shot' Demo Lets You Play The Game For Only 30 Minutes

Capcom has announced a demo for Resident Evil 2 is coming this Friday, but you're not going to want to screw around in this one.

The "1-Shot Demo" for Resident Evil 2, which hits on PS4, Xbox One, and PC January 11 and expires January 31, has you playing as Leon "as he arrives at Raccoon City Police Station in the ultimate worst first day on the job." You have 30 minutes mow down a few zombies, solve a few puzzles, and get out of the station.

Here's the catch: Once that timer expires, you can't play the demo anymore. If you die during the demo you're free to restart, but that timer carries over between tries. If you beat the demo, you're free to run through it again until the timer expires. But ostensibly, those 30 minutes are all you have.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Makes Its Way To Switch This Spring

Capcom's hack & slash RPG Dragon's Dogma has won over many fans over the years thanks to its great combat and pawn systems. Those who have not acquainted themselves with the game have a brand new reason to: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is coming to Switch.

It's unclear if this version of the game boasts the improvements of the recently released remaster for PS4 and Xbox One. The Switch version will be out on April 23. You can watch a trailer right here:

Tropico 6 Delayed Into March

Tropico 6 Delayed Into March

You can't build your own sim-empire overnight, and the same applies to making a game like Tropico 6. Today publisher Kalypso Media announced that it is giving developer Limbic more time to incorporate fan feedback into areas such as multiplayer as it moves to a new release date of March 29.

"Over the holidays," reads a blog post from Simon Hellwig, owner and managing director of Kalypso, "I have played Tropico 6 for many hours and really liked what I saw. But, in my humble opinion, it is not enough to like a game – I want to love it! And Tropico 6 is good, but not very good [emphasis Hellwig's], or outstanding. Yet."

Hellwig says the dev team is currently addressing community feedback from the beta, and specifically says that Limbic is also working on improving the game's pathfinding, multiplayer, the overall game economy, and the simulation of the individual Tropicans.

Nintendo President Thinks Company Could Move Beyond Consoles

Nintendo President Thinks Company Could Move Beyond Consoles

It's been a weird decade for Nintendo. After the massive success of the Wii and DS, the Japanese giant saw themselves crouched in a defensive position, admitting they overcharged for the Nintendo 3DS and having to cut the price dramatically. The Wii U shook confidence both in and within the company, becoming one of Nintendo's biggest failures in their long history. Now the Switch is on fire, but Nintendo's new president Shuntaro Furukawa isn't quick to forget how the company's fortunes were just recently tied to flagging consoles.

In an interview with Japanese newspaper Nikkei translated by NintendoEverything, Furukawa posited the idea home consoles are not the end-all, be-all for Nintendo anymore.

"We aren't really fixated on our consoles," Furukawa told Nikkei. "At the moment we're offering the uniquely developed Nintendo Switch and its software – and that's what we're basing how we deliver the 'Nintendo experience' on. That being said, technology changes. We’ll continue to think flexibly about how to deliver that experience as time goes on."

Dead Or Alive 6 Delayed Two Weeks

Dead Or Alive 6 Delayed Two Weeks

Koei Tecmo has announced via Twitter that Dead or Alive 6, Team Ninja's upcoming fighting game, will see a two-week delay to "further balance and polish" the game. The original date for the title was February 15, but now players won't get a chance until March 1.

It seems unlikely, though not completely impossible, that the game is being delayed two weeks simply for polishing and balance. Team Ninja might want to put their best foot forward with the game's release and fix an issue that popped up late in development. It does seem more likely that Koei Tecmo wants to get the game out of the hellish two-week period in mid-February where the shelves will be stacked with competition.

PlayStation 4 Within Reach Of 100 Million Sales, Over 5 Million Sold This Holiday

PlayStation 4 Within Reach Of 100 Million Sales, Over 5 Million Sold This Holiday

Sony has announced that the PlayStation 4, including all its slim and Pro variations, has crossed the 90 million sold threshold. The system has now sold 91.6 million PS4s worldwide, of which 5 million were sold just in the last few months of 2018. For those doing math, that means that around 18 million PS4s were sold last year.

This makes 2018 one of the strongest calendar years for the PS4 ever, second to 2017 by about two million units. Four a system's fifth full year, the platform is showing incredible health in the market, likely driven by exclusive games like God of War and Spider-Man. While not exclusive, Red Dead Redemption II and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 also probably played a large part in PS4 fervor this year.

Speaking of the webslinger, Sony specifically calls out Spider-Man's sales as strong, stating that the game has sold 9 million units worldwide since release. For comparison, it took God of War from April to around September to hit that same number, so Spider-Man is tracking slightly ahead.
