AMD is not just fighting a battle with Nvidia in graphics, but also excess inventory

AMD just capped off its most profitable year since 2011, and that has investors excited about the company's future.

Quantic Dream wants to makes games for all platforms

Detroit: Become Human studio Quantic Dream announced its partnership with publisher Netease yesterday, using an android, Chloe, from its last game to spill the beans. It’s an odd, highfalutin video with a fictional character trying to get gamers excited about the Chinese publisher’s investment by calling it the start of a new story “full of hope, dreams and passion”. It was almost a shame that I couldn’t write about it, Quantic Dream being a PlayStation developer, but then it announced it was going multi-platform.
