One of the best games revealed at last years E3 was Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs; a sandbox style game about hacking giving you the ability to turn off lights, tap into cell phones and change signal light colors with the push of a button. Kotaku got photos of a poster that states ‘Available Holiday 2013′ and also ‘Available on all Home Consoles.’ Wii U? Ouya? Steam’s Mystery Console? Guess we’ll find out closer [...]

A few weeks back Sony told us that we would “see the future” of Playstation at its New York City event next week, but if this photo is cracked up to all its meant to be, then it looks like the future (or at least part of it) may have leaked a little earlier. Catch the details after the break.

If you’re upset that the apparently brilliant PSP RPG Final Fantasy Type-0 has still not been localised for our Western shores, you’re not alone. In fact not only are you not alone, but you’re in some fairly talented (and impatient) company as a group of fans have given up waiting for Square-Enix to pull their finger out and has started to translate the game to English by themselves in earnest. [...]

In a letter to Kotaku, Valve announced their plans to expand beyond just games and offer non-game software through their Steam service.

Just because The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is going to run on dated hardware doesn’t mean it’s not going to be gorgeous. Inspired by French Impressionism, the forest looks and feels like an interactive painting. I especially like the way the smoke effect was handled.

It seems Capcom is able to do everything wrong, no matter how hard they try to justify it. Whether it’s cancelling Mega Man Legends 3, releasing expansions and balance packs as disc based products or the recent Street Fighter X Tekken debacle, Capcom can’t seem to catch a break. News recently surfaced that Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS will run gamers a full $50 price tag. It’s the game [...]

As I’m sure you’re aware, all Gawker sites (Gawker, Lifehacker, Gizmodo, Jezebel, io9, Jalopnik, Kotaku, Deadspin, and Fleshbot) have been compromised. That means there’s roughly 1.2 million usernames and passwords floating around on the internet. Basically, if you have an account on any of those sites, you’ve likely been compromised (don’t worry, Facebook Connectors — you’re safe). There’s an easy way to tell if you’ve been affected.

That certainly didn’t take long. A mere two weeks ago, head honcho Keiji Infaune told Kotaku he wanted to retire from his job and take things easy. And now he’s quit! Inafune has been with Capcom for 23 years, creating such hits as the Mega Man series and helping to create franchises like Dead Rising, Lost Planet and Onimusha. His full title at Capcom used to be Head of R&D [...]
