Well folks, it appears Capcom have suffered a double whammy of school boy errors today, what – with the leak of their Street Fighter V trailer, and the major blow (or a baku hadoken in this case) that the game is going to be an exclusive to the PS4 and PCNeoGAF user Unlucky Kate reported that a YouTube clip – since been taken down by Capcom – revealed the new title and the exclusivity rights.

Kingdom Hearts

Tai Yasue, co-director and game designer of Kingdom Hearts III, revealed in an interview with Kotaku that the Marvel and Star Wars properties (characters and worlds) are being considered to be included in the long-awaited video game sequel. The first game in the series was released back in 2002, and many thought it sounded like a conceptually bad idea mixing together unrelated properties such as Disney and Final Fantasy properties. However, it turned out to be a huge success, warranting a sequel in 2005 and also several spin-offs and remakes. It wasn’t until E3 2013 that the third game was confirmed to be in development, and test footage was shown at E3 2014. (more…)

So in lieu of actually trying to save it, they’ve decided to let it die mercifully, but even on its deathbed, G4 and its handlers are still a magnet for controversy. (more…)

They have hired Mark Boal, who has written scripts for The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, with the latter bagging him an Oscar. Previously Sony had the writer of the National Treasure movies, so it’s a step in the right direction and who knows, maybe this might actually be good, if they can find a leading protagonist who is willing to sign on the dotted line  (Chris Pratt was offered the role but he turned it down).
