Announcements

  • Marty O’Donnell announced he was fired by Bungie’s Board of Directors (via Twitter)
  • 7 million PlayStation 4 units have been sold through April 6th (via PS.Blog)
  • Final Hours of Titanfall sheds light on Respawn’s early troubles with the title (via NeoGAF)
  • Sony sells all of its Square Enix stock (via Siliconera)

I’ve always enjoyed Marty’s efforts with the Halo games and I’m looking forward to his work on Bungie’s next title, Destiny. It would probably make the most sense for him to end up at 343 Industries but I hope that isn’t the case. I want him to take his talents to other studios and other franchises. How about a shot at the next Mass Effect game? Or just branch off to something completely different like a cyberpunk themed game from the likes of CD Projekt RED?

I’ve seen these “Final Hours…” interactive stories pop up over the years but I never gave them the time of day. I don’t know why either because I appreciate Geoff Keighley’s in depth work and I love interactive written works.

7 million units is nothing to scoff at and I hope Sony continued success. I just wish there were a few more big titles for me to sink my teeth into. (I realize I haven’t played inFamous: Second Son but still.)
