  • NEWS: This weekend, Xbox will be offering their Xbox LIVE Gold subscription for free, until Sunday 2 December. Anyone with an Xbox 360 will be able to jump in and use the service, although only until the weekend is over. Probably a good time to get stuck into Halo 4, then!
  • NEWS: Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo, has apologised for the massive update which Wii U users are obligated to download upon turning on the console in an interview with IGN. He feels bad about it, but then so does everyone who’s waiting hours to actually get to play something on their new console.
  • VIDEO: ‘Most Awesome Idea Ever Conceived’ award winner, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney is now out in Japan and has a launch trailer to celebrate.
