Valve has tacitly acknowledged that some unethical practices and unclear communication by developers using its Steam Early Access service have burned unsuspecting customers.
Early Access was envisioned as a way to invite customers into the development process, fund the final stages of development, and crowdsource feedback. While Early Access has many success stories, some projects inevitably fall over or never materialise, leaving gamers dissatisfied and feeling they're out of pocket.
Overnight, Valve issued an updated set of rules and guidelines to Early Access developers that are designed to better protect the interests of customers.

The cinematic intro for upcoming Destiny expansion The Dark Below has been posted on YouTube.
The cinematic was posted by YouTube user Mr Jester6598, who couldn’t explain the clip’s origin.
“I cannot explain how to get access to this video on the game as it was due to an error that I was able to see this,” reads the video’s description.
“Grand Theft Auto V for new-gen consoles is by far the most rigorous and sweeping cross-generational update we’ve seen – and at this point in the lifecycles of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, we're unlikely to see such a move again.”
