Guitar Hero is reborn in this brand new revamped version, releasing later this year on the Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One. You truly are the rockstar in this game, playing live to a real responsive crowd with your bandmates who won’t be too happy if you mess up! With an entirely new button layout too, even old Guitar Hero veterans can challenge themselves and test their might in this all new version that focuses on broad music genres. I wasn’t interested at all in this game until I saw this trailer– their concept is pretty awesome, and the Creative Director has a magnificent beard.
Disney Infinity 3.0 hasn’t even been announced yet but character names and images have appeared online. Apparently coming from Chinese retailer Taobao, they were posted to Infinity Inquirer but has since been taken down at the request of Disney Interactive, but not before someone could snatch the images!
Characters revealed were classic Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Mulan, Olaf from Frozen, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron, and five characters from the upcoming Pixar movie Inside Out. It’s also likely that Disney Infinity 3.0 will feature Star Wars figures given the release of the new film this Christmas. Even if you’re not a fan of the game, the figures make for pretty cool collectibles. I’d love to get my hands on Chewie and Han Solo figures!

Adventures of Pip is a puzzle platformer indie game created by TicToc Games, that was born through Kickstarter after raising just under $66,000 in pledges to it. It follows Pip, an unlikely hero, a single pixel who absorbs the pixels of his defeated enemies to evolve, and switch between three different forms.
Help Pip make his way through five different 32-bit worlds to rescue the Princess and defeat the evil Queen DeRezzia. It will be released on Steam and Wii U first on May 14th, followed by PS4 and Xbox One shortly after. Will you be purchasing Adventures of Pip when it comes out?
When darkness covers the kingdom, an unlikely hero will evolve and devolve to save the day in this epic 2D side-scrolling adventure.
Lewis Ward, an industry analyst with research firm IDC, said that a year ago he would have said that their wasn’t much of a future for the Wii U, but he now feels that the console has a fighting chance against the PlayStation 4 and Wii U. Ward says that the Wii U will never be the top selling console, but it can remain competitive.
“I don’t blame Nintendo for going back to the well. If you go back to the Wii, there were some Mario games released in the first couple years that were still selling significant volumes at the end of the Wii’s life cycle.”
“I don’t think there’s any opportunity for the Wii U to come back and be the top-selling” console, Ward said. But is it at least competitive against the Xbox and PlayStation? “If you asked me a year ago, I would have said no shot, but I do think that you see signs of hope.”
We’ve just heard that Tantalus, the developer tasked with porting over Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex, to the Wii U is bringing another AAA title to the Wii U, but we’ve also learned that they are porting across a Wii U title to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. It’s anyones guess as to what that title could be, but a safe bet would possibly be ZombiU. This is pure speculation and it could be another title entirely, though I’m not sure which one.
Thanks, Don Billbo
It was bound to happen sooner or later and the signs were there, but the Xbox One has now outsold the Wii U worldwide. The Xbox One has reportedly sold 7.61 million units worldwide and the Wii U has sold 7.45 million units. The Xbox One launched in November 2013 while the Wii U launched back in November 2012. Interestingly the Xbox One has been outselling the PlayStation 4 in the UK during the past three weeks according to MCV.
