I want to give a 100% disclaimer on this one. I am not part of this mailing list. Many of the sites I have called out have banned me in their comments over similar issues in this article. So here is the breakdown from Breitbart:
“Several prominent gaming journalists across America are part of a secret mailing list on which they discuss what to cover, what to ignore, and what approach their coverage should take to breaking news, Breitbart can reveal.”
Read the full article over at Breitbart, then come back to PE to discuss. And its funny too, I just got done saying I don’t like Polygon’s Ben Kuchera. Oh, and this reminds me of something RazorFist said…..”a lie agreed upon”
That is what is said according to Shigeru Miyamoto from Nintendo. With his recent interview from EDGE Magazine, the legend has come out and spoke that the industry has become this fickle with where things are going now as well as saying that he hopes that Nintendo will be aggressive in innovating with newer ideas in both hardware and software. My two-cents about this is up for you to hear! Enjoy!
With my massive 2TB HDD and 60mps internet connection finally here, season 2 of PE Plays is finally underway! The first game will be SteamWorld Dig for the Wii U.

The PlayStation brand has been very profitable with the PS4’s sales, however, that is not covering the massive losses occurring in other sectors of Sony’s business. According to the gaming site KitGuru, Sony is quadrupling their forecast lost for the financial year ending on March 31st, 2015. Sony’s financial issues have been well documented, but it seems like things are going to get worse.
During Sony’s last financial meeting on March 31st, 2014, Sony reported a loss of over £750 million and stated they projected losing another £285 million for the current financial year. But now, that forecast has risen dramatically. Sony is now forecasting a loss £1.04 billion between now and the 31st of March 2015. More details can be found on KitGuru.
