The last global hardware selling charts just came out, and the Playstation Vita does not seem to be performing well.
The Nintendo 3DS is stable at 51.1M, followed by Sony’s PS4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One. The Wii U is further away from his rivals, standing at 9.2M copies sold. What really strikes though is the fact that the PS Vita is nowhere to be seen in the charts, leading fans to speculate if the portable console is doing well at all.
Sony has yet to release any official statements, but it was pointed out already by multiple fans that the lack of sales may or may not be directly correlated to the lack of exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh games for the system.
During a lengthy interview for Official Xbox Magazine UK, head of Microsoft’s Xbox division Phil Spencer has been repeatedly asked about the future of the Kinect peripheral in relation to the Xbox One, to no avail.
Here are a few bits from the interview (which can be fully viewed on the Official Xbox Magazine website):
“I was personally surprised to see that the Master Chief Collection was not gonna feature kinect controls in any forms, but in the end I enjoyed the game nevertheless.”
“Controls what now?”
“What’s a ‘Kinect’?”
“I’m talking about Microsoft’s motion-tracking device for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.”
“I’m afraid I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.”
Microsoft later released an official statement that reported “Kinect never happened, guys“.
While the highly acclaimed tv show Breaking Bad has ended back in 2013, there is no doubt it left more than a good impact on all its fans – and most importantly, it left them hungry for more of the crazy adventures of Walter White and Gus Fring.
Many fans of the show will not be surprised to know that Microsoft has been somewhat of a partner thorough the show – something that culminated with a Jesse Pinkman Xbox One commercial that has turned Xbox One on all over american’s living rooms.
Well – better late than never, as a Microsoft spokesperson today has hinted about a Breaking Bad game already in the works, and very likely it will turn out to be an Xbox One exclusive. It is also rumored to have started production as a GTA: San Andreas remake.
