  • Saints Row IV release date has slipped in AU, falling back to September 12 from its initial August release. This doesn’t bode well for the series as sandbox rival GTAV is just five days later.
  • Xbone exclusive Killer Insitinct will be a free to download title complete with one free character, namely Jago. The rest will cost $5 each or can be bought in packs for $20. Microsoft are adamant that the reboot is not a “cash-in” but “a real front line game that people fall in love with.”
