With such a big release as Destiny, you might be wondering how developer Bungie intends to handle the inevitable pressure on their servers when Xbox One players across the globe attempt to download the digital version of the game. They have come up with an ingenious solution to combat any server overload on the release date, so that everyone can get playing as soon as possible.

Find out how after the jump!

Today brings a mixed bag of news for those anticipating Capcom's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Deep Down. A new gameplay video was released today showcasing gameplay and 1080p graphics (if that's what tickles your fancy), but yet another delay was announced. The game's beta (only slated for Japan so far) was originally planned to hit this Summer, but has been pushed back several times. Capcom announced today that the beta won't hit until sometime next year. It looks like it could be a long wait for Deep Down, but until then you can check out the new gameplay footage by clicking below!

The Media Create hardware and software number for this week in Japan are in, and (big shocker) Yokai Watch 2 is still dominating the charts, taking number one for the seventh consecutive week. The Last of Us Remastered and Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition hit Japan this week, but their sales combined are still below Yokai Watch 2. At this rate, it's unlikely that any new games will be able to unseat Yokai Watch 2 (which should sell even more when it is localized next year) until Super Smash Bros. for 3DS comes out. You can check out a breakdown of this week's numbers by clicking below.

In a somewhat puzzling move, Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed Unity has been delayed...to the same release date as Assassin's Creed Rogue. Originally planned to launch on October 28, Ubisoft announced today that the game has been delayed to November 11, which (barring further delays) is the same day that Assassin's Creed Rogue comes out. Ubisoft blamed the delay on the fact that the game is a current gen exclusive, and the workload for such an undertaking was greater than anticipated.

It appears we may finally have a release date for Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The last gen version of the game has been out for almost a full year now, and lots of release dates have been rumored, but now a more credible source has stepped forward. European video game retailer GAME tweeted earlier today teasing a "provisional release date" for the open world game on current gen consoles, then an hour later stated that the release date was November 1, 2014. Now, when is that PC version coming?

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare looks to mix things up a bit for a fresher experience, including some new multiplayer features. We got a good look at the game's multiplayer during Gamescom, but an official new "Supply Drops" trailer has been released if you're still craving some more Advanced Warfare action. Check it out after the jump!

Destiny launches in less than two weeks now, and will likely be one of the hottest games of the year. This is especially true for Sony, as there will be a special PlayStation 4 Destiny bundle, and both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 will receive exclusive (reportedly a timed exclusive for one year) content for the game. A new trailer has been released which showcases the exclusive goodies, and you can check it out by clicking below!

Dead Island 2 is headed to current gen consoles next year, but first Deep Silver is giving last gen owners a treat in the form of Escape Dead Island. This zombie killing adventure is set in between the first and second games, and has just received a release date of November 18, 2014 in a new trailer. You can check out the trailer by clicking below!

PlayStation Network had maintenance scheduled for Monday, but after the DDoS attack that took the whole network down, it was postponed until today. Sony has announced that PSN account services, PlayStation Home, and PlayStation Store services will be offline from 4:00 PM today until 5:00 AM tomorrow in BST (10:00 AM to 11:00 PM EST today), for a total of 13 hours of downtime. However, during this time you can still play games online if you've "successfully signed in to your account on a device before the maintenance on a PlayStation 4 or within the past 5 days on any other PlayStation device."

Capcom is showing Sony and Mega Man X some love. X4 and X5, both originally PlayStation games, are headed to PlayStation Network. These classic will be available at home on PlayStation 3 and on the go with Vita next month. X4 launches on September 2, and X5 follows a week later on September 9. Prices have not yet been announced. It may be a while before we see the Blue Bomber return for a new game, but you can enjoy some old favorites (you can even play as Zero right from the start in X5!) while you wait.
