Sponsor Drops Former Street Fighter V Champion In Light Of Domestic Abuse Allegations

Update 11/16: Capcom has clarified to Game Informer that Seon-woo's removal from this and next year's Capcom Pro Tour "was the agreed upon by Capcom, Panda Global and Infiltration - not solely determined by Infiltration on his side."

Original Story: Lee "Infiltration" Seon-woo has been banned from competing in Capcom's Street Fighter V pro circuit, and has had his contract with sponsor Panda Global terminated, in light of a recent charge of domestic violence.

The issue first came to light in September, when an anonymous Reddit user alleged Seon-woo had been assaulting his ex-wife since September of last year, after his loss in that year's Evo tournament. They alleged Seon-woo "blamed his wife for his loss in the tournament," and had destroyed her property and attacked her. "One day she tried to call police but Infiltration snatched her phone and choked her to near death and dragged her out of the apartment but fortunately neighbor saw him beating his wife and called police," the user said.

Report: Microsoft Working On Digital-Only Xbox One System For 2019 Release

Based on a new report, Microsoft is working on an Xbox One system without a disc drive for a 2019 release. According to the report from Thurrott, the digital-only device will carry a smaller pricetag – possibly as low as $200 – in an attempt to lower the cost-of-entry to the Xbox One family of systems.

Thurrott also states that Microsoft will introduce a "disc-to-digital" program, which will allow players to trade their discs in to participating retailers in exchange for a digital version of that game.

At E3 this year, Microsoft teased its next generation of hardware, which Thurrott originally reported was codenamed "Scarlett." This disc-less Xbox One system is not a part of that family, according to this report.

Fallout 76 Players Record The First Nuke Drop And Hellish Endgame Battle

Fallout 76 Players Record The First Nuke Drop And Hellish Endgame Battle

A group of Fallout 76 players launched the first nuke of the game right at a fissure site. They triggered an event called Scorched Earth, which tasks the players to kill a level 95 scorchbeast queen in under thirty minutes. The crazy thing is, they did it, and you can watch the whole battle unfold. Just keep in mind that the video contains a lot of strong language and the audio seems to be a bit off in places.

If you want to launch your own nukes in the wasteland, be prepared for a challenge. You first have to discover a silo which will have a unique code to unlock the launch sequence. Finding the codes can be tricky, since they only drop after you defeat certain enemies in the world. After collecting the entire sequence, you can choose where on the map you want to detonate the bomb.

If you are interested in seeing a more typical vault-dweller experience, watch us play three hours of the beta here. Fallout 76 is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
