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.

Battlefield Hardline Ultimate Edition PS4 owners can't access DLC

Battlefield Hardline Ultimate Edition PS4 owners can't access DLC

Those who purchased the Ultimate Edition of Battlefield Hardline on PS4 are unable to play the game’s first DLC pack, even though it should have been available to them last week.

The game’s Ultimate Edition included a Premium DLC pass, but for technical reasons the DLC hasn’t unlocked for Ultimate Edition owners, keeping Criminal Activity – which contains new maps and kit – out of their hands.

Criminal Activity has been available to other Premium members since June 17, and will be available to the public on June 31.

Black Ops III is coming to 360 and PS3 after all

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but it won’t be the same game.

“We know that there are still some fans that haven’t made the transition to the new console hardware, which is why we’re happy to share that we're working with developers Beenox and Mercenary Technology on Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3,” said Activision in a blog post.

Beenox is an Activision subsidiary that most recently released two Amazing Spider-Man games, while Merc Tech worked on the Vita port of Advanced Warfare, among others.
