Destiny's Taken King director: "That Asshat was me"

Bungie will now sell the exclusive content in Destiny: The Taken King Collector's Edition separately following complaints from fans and the media.

The problem Destiny veterans had was that they would have to buy the entire game and its expansions again just to get the three class emotes, three armour shaders, and three exotic class items with XP bonuses that were packaged in with the Collector’s Edition.

Earlier this week, The Taken King's creative director Luke Smith exacerbated matters in an interview with Eurogamer with his casual dismissal of concerns that the Collector’s Edition was a slap in the face to the game’s existing fans.

He has since apologised for his comments on the game’s blog.

“Reading my interview with Eurogamer and imagining it came from some random developer of a game I love – that random developer looks like an Asshat,” he wrote.

Future Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC to skip last-gen consoles

Future Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC won’t be available on last-gen consoles, BioWare has revealed.

As such, the company has created a Save Importer tool so those playing on PlayStation 3 can move their save files to PlayStation 4, and those on Xbox 360 can move to Xbox One.

Exports and imports to or from PC are not supported.

Watch Dogs downgrade debacle taught Ubisoft a lesson

Ubisoft says it has learned a lesson from the downgrade fiasco that clouded the launch of Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs was announced at E3 in 2012 with an impressive gameplay demo, but upon release it was clear many of the flashy graphical effects shown in the demo weren’t present in the final build.

Speaking with The Guardian at E3 last month, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the reaction from gamers had re-shaped the company’s approach to showing off pre-release games.
