According to Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, sales of Borderlands 2 have passed 12 million. Pitchford guest-starred on a recent podcast with Microsoft's Larry Hryb, aka Marjor Nelson, and revealed this figure, which he said was brought up during a recent earnings call. The popular game, which was recently re-released as part of the Handsome Jack Collection, is the most successful game in the history of publisher 2K Games. Gearbox will be looking to top it when they release the next Borderlands game on current gen consoles.

The weekly software and hardware sales for Japan are in, and it's all good news for Sony. PlayStation 4, which initially had very disappointing sales in Japan, continues its streak at number one this week and in impressive fashion. Sales of Sony's latest console jumped from 33,826 to 46,395 thanks to new releases like Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Battlefield Hardline, and Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Thus far most games available on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 sell better on the last gen console in Japan, but Hardline actually performed better on the newer console, which is a good sign for Sony.

LEGO The Hobbit released last year and followed the story from the first two Hobbit films. Warner Bros. originally planned on releasing downloadable content to cover the final film, but it has since cancelled those plans. "There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy," the publisher confirmed in a statement to GameSpot. The game's story will now remain unfinished as it ends on a cliffhanger, but Warner Bros. believes that "The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film."

Sony has announced that they will be shutting down all online servers for MLB 14: The Show, only one year after its release last April.

Online services will be completely cut off on June 18th, for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita versions of the game.

MLB 15: The Show will be releasing on March 31st, just over a week from now, so fans of the series won't have to wait long at all to get back online.

One problem that many online services suffer from is the occasional outage. The PlayStation Network has been victim to many attacks and service outages over the past couple of years. Since these situations happen frequently, many users often take to the Internet to find out if service issues are on their end or if the PSN is actually down.

This spawned a number of fan-created sites that monitor the status of the PSN, but now Sony has decided to launch an official one. More after the jump!

Are you dying for a load of new games to play on your PlayStation? Well you’re in luck, because Sony is having a massive sale, offering tons of games for under one dollar each!

The list of games on sale ranges from classic PlayStation titles, such as Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, to indie titles released last year, such as Cloudberry Kingdom. Each game is being sold for as low as $0.80 and as high as $0.99. But you better act fast because the sale ends on March 23rd at 9:00 A.M. Pacific Time.

Telltale Games is known for creating games that mainly focus on storytelling with a "choose your own story" kind of approach. Last year, the studio concluded The Walking Dead: Season Two, and many people are hungry for more. At last week's SXSW Festival, Telltale's director of PR, Job J. Stauffer, spoke at a panel and gave The Walking Dead fans a vague, but promising, bit of information.

PlayStation Vita, Sony's handheld gaming system/PlayStation 4 companion device, is currently available on the cheap. Normally $199.99, right now you can score one on Amazon for $169.99. Sony's first-party support of Vita has been lackluster recently, but there's a few gems on the system, along with a vast library of indie games and the ability to use Remote Play with PlayStation 4.

Gravity Rush is easily one of the most beloved exclusives on the PlayStation Vita. With its cel shaded graphics and its innovative, cool gameplay, it's one of the finest games you can get on the handheld.

It looks like you might not need a Vita to experience the game now. Thanks to a keen NeoGAF user, it was discovered that the Korean Game Ratings Board has listed Gravity Rush Remaster as an upcoming title on the PlayStation 4.

Since Gravity Rush just might make its way to the PlayStation 4, does this mean its long awaited sequel will also be ported to the next-gen console? Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has been a hot topic in the gaming community with its recent release on March 10th. The 2D, top-down action game sequel was developed by Dennaton Games and published by Devolver Digital. Dennaton Games has previously stated that it has no desire to make Hotline Miami 3, but a new discovery in Wrong Number has people questioning whether that is actually the case.

The weekly sales figures are in for hardware and software in Japan, and PlayStation 4 is continuing its stay at the top. Yakuza 0 launched at number one on PlayStation 3 and number two on PlayStation 4, selling a combined 236,000 units. This helped PlayStation 4 keep the momentum it received from Dragon Quest Heroes. Mario Kart 10 also made its Japanese debut this week with a rather modest 50,000 sales, putting it at number five for the week. The party game proved not to be a system seller, as Wii U sales actually declined this week. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below!

Sony's monthly list of top-selling games on the North American PlayStation Store has been released, and the results are pretty interesting. Coming in at the top spot for the month of February is Techland's Dying Light  —  a zombie survival-horror game in the same vein as the Dead Island series. Make the jump to view the full list of top-sellers on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. 

The popular LEGO video game franchise has tackled superheroes, wizards, and just about everything in between, and this summer it's going prehistoric! LEGO Jurassic World, a video game adaption of all four Jurassic Park movies, is coming to 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Vita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC in June. We got a brief teaser trailer last month, but the full dino-filled, action-packed trailer launched today. You can check it out by clicking below!

The weekly hardware and software sales for Japan are in courtesy of Media Create, and Square Enix's latest game continues to be a big hit. After selling just shy of 600,000 at its debut, Dragon Quest Heroes has sold another 100,000 units this week to take the number one and three spots for software. The PlayStation 3 version continues to be more popular (beating out Etrian Mystery Dungeon for the top spot this week), but the PlayStation 4 version has sold over 300,000 units itself.

PlayStation 4 sales slumped from last week, but its 33,753 units sold this week made it the top seller spot for an individual piece of hardware. Combined sales of all New Nintendo 3DS and regular 3DS models just barely eclipsed that for highest-selling platform of the week. Elsewhere, Vita sales took a hit this week, but Sony's handheld still took third place. Wii U saw a slight bump in sales, but still only managed to sell just over 7,000 units. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

The PlayStation Vita has rarely had good sales. Everywhere outside of Japan, the handheld can't come close to standing a chance against the Nintendo 3DS. With so many Japanese games coming out this year for the Vita, it's no surprise that it sells well over there. Their demographic is taken care of, but in English speaking countries, the demographic has gotten the wrong end of the stick.
