Microsoft has announced that a total of 1.1 million consoles were shipped in quarter two of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015. This means that 1.1 million combined Xbox 360 and Xbox One units were shipped to retailers from April 1 until June 1. It is unclear how many units were sold through to customers. This number seems pretty low considering it's the total shipments of two consoles over a three month period, but we don't yet have the full sales data on PlayStation 4 and Wii U during the same time period for comparison.

We know that the Kinect-free Xbox One model that launched just after quarter two has boosted sales, and June was a stronger month for Xbox One than May, so it's likely that the quarter three numbers will be substantially improved.

GameStop teased that they will have a "big announcement for a big game tomorrow" on their Facebook page earlier today alongside a pixelated image of something relating to the game.

The image appears to be hinting at an Assassin's Creed announcement tomorrow, possibly for the last-gen title in development (rumored to be Assassin's Creed: Comet). The image clearly appears to be an assassin, and there seems to be way too much red in the hood area of the costume for the announcement to be something related to Assassin's Creed: Unity.

What do you guys think the announcement will be? Head inside to take a look at the full image.

Much like his predecessor, Mega Man, Mighty No. 9 star Beck has the ability to steal the weapons of bosses he defeats in battle, morphing between different weapon styles. This ability is shown off in the latest Mighty No. 9 footage from developer Comcept. In addition, Call (Beck's partner and a playable character) is given a brief look as well. It's still a long time until Mighty No. 9 launches next April, but game creator Keiji Inafune is doing a good job of easing the wait and keeping us hooked with all these updates and work-in-progress video clips. You can catch the latest one by clicking below.

Russia Today recently ran a story on the tragedy of children being used as soldiers. Former child soldier Emmanuel Jal was interviewed on the topic, and various images and video clips of child soldiers played at the background. In what is likely a mix-up (similar to a Danish news channel mistaking an Assassin's Creed screenshot for an actual photo of Damascus, Syria), a screenshot from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is included in the background images. The game features child soldiers as part of its controversial plot, and FOX Engine seeks to achieve photorealism, so it's understandable that a mistake could have been made. The article for the interview has been updated since its publishing, and it now specifies that an image was taken from The Phantom Pain for the interview.

Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is on a quest to revitalize the survival-horror genre with The Evil Within. The terrifying shooter recently received a new, earlier release date, so you can get your hands on it on October 14. However, you don't have to wait that long to get a good look at the game. We've got sixteen minutes of intense, all-new gameplay footage starting from Chapter Four. You can catch all the horror-filled action after the jump.

Get ready for mayhem, because two of Disney's most mischievous (and most popular) characters are coming to Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition expands upon the original Disney Infinity premise by adding characters from the Marvel Universe, alongside many other Disney favorites absent in the original game, in addition to a plot uniquely its own. The most recent trailer for Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition shows off Tinker Bell, from Peter Pan and her own Tinker Bell spinoffs, and Stitch, the beloved alien monster from the Lilo and Stitch series.

Head inside to see the two characters in action, and to spot dozens of easter eggs from Gravity Falls and other Disney worlds not present in the original game.

Earlier this year, Metal Gear fans got just a tiny taste of the Metal Gear Solid V experience with Ground Zeroes. The short game served as the prologue to The Phantom Pain, and together the two stories make up Metal Gear Solid V. Series creator Hideo Kojima discussed these controversial stories in a recent interview, highlighting their relevance to current world events and the US military. 

The interview ended with The Guardian stating that The Phantom Pain is due to release on March 17, 2015. If that's accurate, this is the first we've heard of it, and it was likely not yet meant to be revealed. The article has since been edited to say it will launch in "early 2015," but screenshots prove that the March 17 date was originally specified. This release date would put it almost exactly one year after the launch of Ground Zeroes.

Fans of the survival-horror genre can't wait to get their hands on The Evil Within, and that wait just got a little shorter. Developed by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within was originally slated to launch on October 21, but it has been announced at QuakeCon 14 that the dark and twisted shooter will now release a week earlier on October 14. You can pick up The Evil Within on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, or PC. 

Thanks to sources like Media Create and Famitsu, we can see what the top-selling video games are in Japan each week. Now that June is in the books, 2014 is officially over halfway over. So, what games dominated Japan in the first six months? We've got the list for you after the jump!

In addition to charting the top-selling software in the US for the month of June, NPD has also crunched the hardware numbers. PlayStation 4 continues its strong run in the US, taking the top spot for the sixth consecutive month. Xbox One finished in second place, with Microsoft reporting that their numbers have doubled since offering the Kinect-free model. 3DS sales were down from June of last year, but still good enough for third place. Wii U sales, boosted by Mario Kart 8, were up a whopping 233% over last year. Hit the jump for a closer look at the sales data from June.
