We are a mere 5 days away from the true start of the next generation of video game consoles and the release of Sony’s PlayStation 4. We are all very excited here for its release. That said there’s TONS of news to catch up on so lets take a look at The Week In Gaming!

The News:

  • Peggle 2 is coming to the XboxOne in December. It is a timed exclusive for the system.
  • Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, the prologue to The Phantom Pain, will be releasing next spring for PS4, XboxOne, PS3, and 360. For PS4 & XB1 it is currently scheduled to only be a downloadable game with a $29.99 price tag, for PS3 & 360 it will be sold both on a disc for $29.99 or digitally for $19.99
  • Need For Speed Rivals has had its release date moved up to November 15th to be available with the launch of the PS4.
  • SpikeTV will be hosting a PS4 launch event on their channel on November 14th starting at 11 P.M. Rumors have it that something big for the PS4 is set to be announced during this broadcast but as of right now there are no leads on to what that may be. We will keep you posted during the week if any news comes out about this before Thursday.
  • Sony has announced MLB The Show 14 will release on PS3, PS4 and Vita next spring (likely early March). This isn’t really unexpected but something interesting did come out of the teaser image that game along with the announcement, Sony has a small little bit of text on it claiming that The Show will be the only baseball-simulation game available on next-gen consoles. 2K’s Major League Baseball 2K series has been lagging behind The Show in all the critical reviews for the last few years and was rumored to have been killed before last season but made a seemingly last-minute comeback. We will see if 2K makes any announcements about their MLB offerings in the coming months.
  • Unity will be free for all indie developers that are registered for the ID@Xbox when it launches next year. Microsoft hasn’t had the best reputation with the indie community over the last few years so this is a good step in the right direction for them.

The Story So Far. . .
  • One-Quest was founded many millennia ago in a galaxy know as "n00b," by a foundation of Nerds. n00b was a small galaxy ruled by an evil empire, known as the "Hipstars." One-Quest formed with the sole purpose of removing the Hipstar empire from power, and restoring balance to all Nerds...
