Universal Sony have announced that Arnold Schwarzenegger's Sabotage will be released on Blu-Ray on July 31 in Australia. This is great news for Arnie fans such as myself as the film was not released theatrically in this country, and several others, following a poor American Box Office. Directed by David Ayer, the acclaimed Director of End of Watch, Sabotage follows DEA agent Breacher Wharton (Schwarzenegger) who leads an elite task force on a daring high-stakes raid on a heavily-armed drug safe house owned by the world's deadliest drug cartels. The raid seems to have gone seamlessly, and the team think their work is done, until $10 million in cash disappears and everything turns deadly. Keep your eyes open for a giveaway on Futuregamez in the coming weeks!

Over the last day or so you may have read about a 10GB Day One patch for Sniper Elite 3. It has been confirmed however that this massive patch is for the XBox One version, not the PS4 version with that patch coming in much smaller - although the developers at Rebellion have not specified excactly how big. The game is due out at the end of the week.
One of the best PS4 titles so far is the Housemarque's gorgeous shooter Resogun. While the game is getting a Heroes Expansion Pack next week the game has just been patched to include a local co-op mode as well as a ship editor. Unfortunately the Leaderboards will now be reset, however those with current High Scores need not get angry as they will be added to a Hall of Fame Leaderboard.

One of the surprises at the E3 show was that a Destiny alpha was going to launch this weekend - we've had a look at the game and can say, wow, this is a very polished, very fun game which has risen significantly in our "must have" list for the year. Detailed environments, fast-paced FPS action with little lag in the multiplayer made it a fun experience. We'll be playing more over the coming days so will update our preview soon, but for now, I'm getting back to it!

Sony have announced that Hohokum the very unique looking game from Honeyslug will be released on all platforms (PS4/PS3/PSVita) on August 13, 2014. It's a pretty vibrant looking game so we're keen to check it out. Expect to see more at the E3 Show next week but for now, enjoy a new Game Design trailer.
Sony and developers Cleaversoft have announced a new game for PS4 and PSVita called EarthNight. Due out on PS4 first, and PSVita in 2015 the "Runner" styled game looks absolutely gorgeous so check out the trailer below...
That's not all the announcements with Sony confirming the indie game Night in the Woods will be hitting the PS4. No release date yet, but it looks, well, different..
We are all well aware that despite Microsoft's initial promises that XBox One would always require and ship with the Kinect camera, that they were pretty much lies. So much so that a Kinect-less XBox One will soon be available without the camera. Now that the camera is removed this has freed up some of the GPU power to be dedicated back to games - with reports today suggesting up to 10% more power will be available for developers. We can't see this closing the gap to PS4's superior visual performance, but it may reduce it.
Media Molecule, the creator of LittleBigPlanet has confirmed they will not be showing a new title off at this years E3 Show. Those hoping for another Sackboy adventure, possibly on PS4 - we're crying with you!

So, if you like fighting games then listen up. Moral Kombat X has been announced and while details are scarce, the trailer below should wet your appetite.
