  1. Today Amazon unveiled their first foray into the console games business - Amazon Fire TV. In actuality, it's less a game console and more a media device with gaming capabilities built in, but it does feature a quad-core processor and a dedicated GPU similar to ones found in smartphones. It also runs on Android, has 2GB of RAM, dual-band WiFi, its own remote control, and will also have other services such as Hulu Plus in addition to its own Amazon Prime content. Major developers such as Ubisoft, Take-Two, Double Fine, Disney, and more have all signed on to develop games for the device, and around 1,000 games are expected by next month. Also, the average price for games is said to be around $2. Amazon Game Studios also expects to produce their own original games, as indicated previously by their purchase of developer Double Helix a couple of months ago. In the meantime, an original game called Sev was shown off to demonstrate the kind of content that will be coming to Fire TV. Fire TV is out today and priced at $99. You can check out a trailer for Sev below. Source: Engadget Are you interested in Amazon's Fire TV device?
  2. ...and boy is it ugly. Kinda reminds me of the old OnLive controller. I dunno guys, do you think this will actually take off?
  3. Now this is a bit sudden. Apparently reports have surfaced that Amazon has acquired Double Helix Games as one of their own internal developers. The developer had most recently released the revamped Killer Instinct on Microsoft's Xbox One and is readying their next title for Capcom, Strider, for release later this month. News about the acquisition surfaced when Tech Crunch was sent an invite to a recruiting event for Amazon and Double Helix. Amazon confirmed the acquisition to the site by saying “Amazon has acquired Double Helix as part of our ongoing commitment to build innovate games for customers.” It's unknown what exactly Double Helix will be working on from now on, but it seems likely that they'll be developing for Amazon's own Kindle Fire tablets at the very least.

  4. Not sure why, and not sure how long it lasts, but Arkham Origins Blackgate is $20 for a download code for the Vita version. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00GGUSZVY/ref=nosim/cheapassgam08-20 It's only the Vita download, physical copies are still $35 for Vita and I think $30 for 3DS. Anyway, if $20 is your "eh, I'll try it" point for this game, there it is.
  5. Usually pre-order bonuses for video games range from Limited Editions to DLC weapons and costumes, but I think SEGA has broke new ground in their pre-order bonus for the Wii U version of Sonic: Lost World coming out the 29th of this month. If you pre-order the title, you get a download code for... twenty-five extra lives. It's certainly a different type of pre-order than the norm, but one has to wonder if you really need those extra lives. Oh, and don't forget that pre-ordering the game from any retailer will ensure you get the Deadly Six Bonus Edition, so the lives are an extra incentive to buy from Amazon. What do you think of this interesting pre-order bonus?

    Amazon Opens Indie Game Store

    PC gamers have come to love Steam as the ultimate place to go for digital gaming deals and indie titles. However, Amazon has also made itself well known over the years with its own excellent deals on both physical and digital games. More recently, many of their sales have rivaled Steam and it seems Amazon is more than willing to tread into that territory. Today they opened up an Indie Games section. Here's what Amazon says about it: "The Amazon Indie Games Store helps independent game developers reach more customers, and helps customers learn about more creative games and the people and processes behind building those games." What might make this a new favorite site for indie game fans? For one, Amazon is also going to dole out weekly deals here. Indie game bundles also happen to have 100% of their proceeds go to the developers. Along with that indie-friendly image, Amazon also has an Indie Spotlight which is going to focus on different independent developers regularly. Finally, through July 17th, they are celebrating the new section by giving away free indie games with purchase of others. What's on sale for the page's opening? There are apparently 200 games on sale such as Bastion, Don't Starve, Hotline Miami, Super Meat Boy, and pretty much everything else you might expect. Many of these downloads come with Steam keys.
  7. The Xbox One has surprisingly shot all the way up to the most wanted item on the Amazon UK store after being added to Amazon's list of upcoming releases. It beats out The Last of Us, which is ranked as the second most anticipated release, and flies past the Playstation 4 with it's position as seventh most wanted item in the store. Perhaps its just a first day surge of people getting ready to preorder it, but it must be making someone in the Microsoft offices smile after the flood of bad press the upcoming console has received as of late. You can view the Amazon store page at the link below. Xbox One Is Number One?
  8. So, in what I'm assuming is an effort to beat Steam's summer sale to the punch, Amazon is having a big sale on PC digital downloads: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ref=hy-bill-dvg-1&ie=UTF8&docId=1000716161 Some good deals on some good titles here people, so check 'em out! (found on CAG, as usual)
  9. This obviously won't last for very long, but Amazon is technically paying their own customers to buy Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale from them. How exactly did this happen? Well its all thanks to Sony's cross buy promotion and a poorly timed sale. Here are the details. As you all know, every brand new copy of Playstation All-Stars comes with a free Vita version of the game. The PS3 version of the game itself is currently on sale at Amazon for $30. While that would normally just be an okay deal, you have to factor in their current promotion where if you trade $20 worth of games into Amazon, you get an extra $20. How much does Playstation All-Stars trade in for? $22. So if you were to act now, you could buy Playstation All-Stars for $30, trade it in for $40, and then keep the Vita version of the game for yourself. You're essentially getting paid ten dollars to own the Vita version of the game. But again, this is only going to go on for so long before Amazon realizes that stacking sales and promotions like this is a bad idea. So if you're going to stick it to Amazon, you better do it quick. You can view the sale page below. Playstation All-Stars Amazon trade in promotion EDIT: Surprise surprise. Amazon has cut the trade in value in half. So no more free games and money for you.

The GOTY includes Dead Island Maingame Bloodbath Arena DLC Ryder White DLC Blueprint "The Ripper" Weapon Get ready for your return to Dead Island, a paradise to die for!
  11. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007IFMEYK?t=slicinc-20&tag=slicinc-20&ascsubtag=xpMropedEeKb1MKe19bShwz9E1_U7DV3_YVM_0_0 Key Game Features Two Classic Games In One Release - The two classic PS2 games Zone of the Enders, and its sequel Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner are included Dramatic Japanese Mecha Action and Storytelling - Lose yourself in dramatic Japanese mecha robot action combat, set against an enthralling sci-fi off-world storyline Diverse Weapons - In addition to mecha units' hand-to-hand abilities, players will utilize both swords and projectile weapons during combat New Game Opening Animations - In addition to the animations found within the original games, The Zone of the Enders HD Collection includes new opening animations for both games An Advanced Look at Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Players enjoy an advanced look at Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance through the demo included Next lowest price they said was at best buy for $30.
  12. Also is on amazon but you will need orders to be over $25 for free shipping unless you have prime. http://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-assassins-creed-ezio-trilogy-for-ps3?utm_campaign=1029&utm_medium=afl&utm_source=GPN&tsToken=US_AFF_0_1029_1327_0&sid=ECmFeJZEEeKJn058Rx4W9Qz9E1_iS2V3_0_0_0&c=all&p=96 http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Creed-Ezio-Trilogy-Playstation-3/dp/B009GZX49Y?t=slickdeals&tag=slickdeals&ascsubtag=TXSp2pZEEeK_n5IUqMwukQz9E1_iS2V3_0_0_0
  13. The launch of Sim City this week has been nothing but tumultuous for the most part, with the main reason being that many people are not able to connect to the servers in order to play. The popular simulation game requires users to maintain an "always-on" connection to EA's servers in order to play it due in part to the DRM. It would seem that Amazon has had more than its share of complaints from customers who purchased the game through their website but have been experiencing server errors and generally cannot play the game at the moment, so the online retail giant has restricted the ability to purchase Sim City as a download until further notice. Amazon also made a statement that they are "actively working with EA to resolve the issues" but they don't know when the issue will be fixed. Anyone experiencing trouble playing Sim City is encouraged to go to the game's help center on EA's website.

    Ouya Coming to Non-Dev Backers Soon

    At the very end of the year, certain Ouya backers began receviing their system. The highly-successful Kickstarter project had a great deal of tiers and included some which shipped consoles out sooner than others. Those more expensive developer-intended tiers helped many get their hands on the device early which has allowed for game development before standard release. If you backed the system for cheaper then you are part of the standard crowd. This massive group of customers now have only a month to wait for their own Ouya. The systems are set to ship out on March 28th. Although it may have been hard waiting three months for a system, every Kickstarter participant is still getting it before launch. Ouya has an official launch month of June, after all. If you were unable to get in on the campaign while it was live, there are still many ways to secure yourself a system. First, the official website is still taking pre-orders. Consoles are also available officially through Amazon. Those who just want to walk into a store and grab and Ouya will have that option too as it will be available in BestBuy, GameStop, and Target.
  15. For all of those poor PC souls being left to defend themselves in the dark by Rockstar and their total lack of any PC support for Grand Theft Auto V, this might come as some good news. A PC port of the highly anticipated title has appeared for pre-order on the French Amazon website. Of course, you shouldn't get your hopes up just yet. These sorts of listings could always be the result of an error, but at the same time we've seen so many actual leaks coming from different foreign Amazon websites that its hard to tell anymore. I wouldn't hold my breath, but its worth keeping an eye on. You can view the pre-order page yourself at the link.

    GTA V PC

  17. The sequel to the samurai romancing visual novel, Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom, will be ready for PSPs and Vitas starting February 19th! Except Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi isn't a visual novel, but a hack-and-slash game. Yup, you'll get to play as six of the samurai you know and love from the original game as you battle enemies and furies. Warriors of the Shinsengumi also contains two storylines – one where you“re able to relive the events of Demon of the Fleeting Blossom and one that takes place in an alternate universe where things happen quite differently. All retail copies of Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi will also come with a 16-page full-color character guide. Neat! But that's not all! If you pre-order from Amazon, you'll get your hands on a rather fetching bandana that features all of the playable samurai warriors of Warriors of the Shinsengumi. Will you be pre-ordering Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi for the really cool bandana?
  18. With the end of September, Amazon unveiled a new bundled version of the Xbox 360 available exclusively through their site. While there are already 360s in the wild for lower price ($99 with contract), Amazon's proposition still looks appealing. The Xbox 360 Entertainment Bundle attempts to bridge the gap between people who want a system for games and media, not just one or the other. What do you get with the Entertainment Bundle? The system itself is the 4GB 360 which goes for $200 these days. Also included is a 3 month trial subscription to Xbox Live Gold and three XBLA games. In an attempt to cater to the TV/movie crowd a remote and $10 credit toward Amazon Instant Video are also included. All this combined costs $230. It's not the most stunning deal in the world, but may entice those who still don't have the system. Some may be wondering what three XBLA games are eligible. There are specific titles shown (Lode Runner, Snoopy Flying Ace, R-Type Dimensions), but they are not specifically chosen to be in every bundle. However, in order to purchase games they must have agreed to let themselves be used in promotions. So, there's little way of knowing exactly what XBLA games will work until you're ready to redeem some. Beyond that, this deal lasts until the end of the year. After that it seems Amazon will be done offering this bundle, or replace it with something else. Is this bundle appealing? What would make it better?
  19. Looks like Aksys will be giving a super awesome pre-order bonus for Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, the sequel to the highly-praised 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors! Like the original 999 pre-order bonus, the one for Zero Escape will also be a wearable wrist watch modeled after the bracelet featured in the game. The Zero Escape wrist watch pre-order bonus is available in three colors: red, blue, and green. This offer is Amazon-exclusive and applies to both the 3DS and Vita versions of the game. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward will be released in North America on October 23rd. Be prepared! Will you be pre-ordering Zero Escape for 3DS or Vita?
  20. http://www.12gaugecomics.com/title/index/id/51 I saw this on CAG. Basically, Amazon Studios is considering turning this comic book into a film and they are looking for fan input. Just read the comic, then put in the survey address and fill it out. As of now they are giving away a $5 gift code for doing so, but I'm not sure how long that'll last. It worked for me so it doesn't hurt to give it a try.
  21. We now know the release date and pricing for the Wii U console itself, but how much will its games cost? Amazon and GameStop have begun taking pre-orders for various Wii U games already at a $60 price tag. Now, some people might be skeptical about that, especially with the $100 placeholder price tag Amazon and GameStop had previously. However, according to a confirmation from a Nintendo representative, it looks like $60 will be the most common MSRP for Wii U games. The representative makes an important note that it's a "baseline price ... specific games could be more or less." Looks like Nintendo fans will have to start getting used to paying the same prices for games that 360 and PS3 owners pay! Is $60 a good price for Wii U games? Or do you think Nintendo should have stayed at $50 and below?

    Wii U's Nintendo TVii Detailed

    What on Earth is Nintendo TVii, and why is it written that way? Well, the second question is easy to answer by simply saying it's Nintendo being Nintendo. Now, what is it all about? This "third pillar" of the Wii U system was discussed at length during today's Wii U preview event so here's what you need to know. Nintendo TVii is a new initiative that will run on the GamePad. It is meant to be a new way to interface with you television media and watching habits. When booted up, the application lists a few basic buttons: TV, movies, sports, and search. For TV, you will be able to see all the upcoming listings for shows (for the sources available to you). From this, you will be able to click buttons that allow you to "tune in" to the station where the show is on, or queue it up to be recorded or played from a DVR device (only Tivo was mentioned). Apparently "moments" and descriptions of live shows will also be vieweable. This means that brief summations of what's happening and screenshots for an episode will be stored. It's not known what shows will get this feature, as certainly not everything could. This is all basically remote control functionality, not streaming TV. For movies, it was announced that you'll be able to interface it with your existing Netflix, Hulu Plus, or Amazon Instant Video accounts. When looking up movies you will be able to quickly check out reviews and information from IMDB, as well as watch trailers on the GamePad itself. Again, it will only show items from sources that you actually are subscribed to. Once you're ready to watch something then all you need to do is select it and start watching on your TV. With the sports button you gain access to a whole lot of information. The main screen shows off the current scores for games. Your favorite teams will show up as the first scores too, so you don't even have to search. Once a game is on you'll be able to use the GamePad to pull up all kinds of statistics on the current game and players. Sports also have the same feature of TV shows where moments will be recorded if you want to catch up on a play you missed. To help make the best of Nintendo TVii, players signed in with their personal Miis will have all information tailored to them. Shows and movies will be recommended based off their set preferences. If you don't want to be profiled, you can choose a setting to not log in when using TVii. If you're into social networking, you can also set up your Twitter and Facebook accounts to update statuses while checking out shows and movies. Finally, all of the features of this application are free to use. Does Nintendo TVii seem appealing or is it a glorified remote control?
  23. Do you recall Amazon's push into the tablet market? The Kindle Fire is an interesting device but as far as gaming goes it is certainly not the ideal market at the moment. In an attempt to make gaming on the device more interesting for users, which would then mean more profits for developers, Amazon today introduced GameCircle. What's this GameCircle thingamajig about? It introduces the ability for developers to integrate achievements, leaderboards, and game syncing with their titles. The first two aren't revelations but it is surprising that they weren't already a part of the service. Sync will connect to a player's Amazon account so they can play wherever they left off in a game across multiple devices. This synced data (leaderboard stats, achievements, and saves) is stored in Amazon's massive cloud. Although GameCircle's announcement is meant to stir up interest in developers, it's also of benefit to Kindle Fire gamers. Here's a video detailing what the new service has to offer: Would you play mobile games more if they had achievements and leaderboards?
  24. So yeah, Amazon has Star Wars: The Old Republic along with World of Warcraft: Cataclysm for $19.99 each....though for some reason Catacylsm's price has increased to $20.99. No clue why really! Anyway, if you've been holding out on getting either of these, you may want to act now as those prices are pretty cheap and this only lasts for today (or so I heard). Just wanted to share this with you guys, as I know SWTOR is pretty popular and at a regular price of $60 that's a great sale.
