Although Bungie's Destiny has had exceptional sales numbers and pulled in huge profits, it has also seen its fair share of complaints. One key component of the game that was seen as particularly lackluster by many players and reviewers was the story. In an interview with Eurogamer prefaced by the opening statement "Destiny's story failed," Bungie president Harold Ryan talked about the upcoming expansion, The Dark Below, promising that it offers "a very different approach to telling a new story to players than the thematically-driven story from the original launch of the game." Check out the full statement below!

The Dark Below, the first expansion for Bungie-developed sci-fi shooter Destiny, is set to launch on December 9, but other currently unavailable content has already been discovered in the game. In the past many companies have shipped games with fully fleshed out extras hidden away to be unlocked later as "downloadable content" for a price, and this practice of charging for on-disk DLC typically does not sit well with gamers. In a recent interview Bungie president Harold Ryan explained that this is not the case with Destiny. Hit the jump to check it out!

Ubisoft has just released their financial report for the past quarter (and they're doing quite well), revealing a number of sales figures and projections. Notably, Watch Dogs has sold (this likely mean shipped to retailers, not necessarily sold through to customers) 9 million copies, and Ubisoft eventually expects it to eclipse 10 million. The upcoming Far Cry 4 is expected to sell at least 6 million copies, and Ubisoft is confident that these two games along with the Assassin's Creed franchise will help them reach an operating income of €150 million for the year. 

Results for the first half of Capcom's fiscal year have recently been reported, and the numbers are down quite a bit since last year. Within this time period the company managed to rake in a whopping $239.6 million in revenue. Unfortunately, no matter how big that number seems, it is actually down 51.3% compared to 2013. Their profits were also down 39.9% at $26.8 million.

If you've followed any news at all about Assassin's Creed Unity, you know it takes place during the French Revolution. However, it looks like there will be more to it. Dubbed "Time Anomaly," the latest trailer shows what appears to be a glitch in the Animus turning Paris from the 18th century into Paris during World War II! We're not sure how big of a role this time-jumping feature will play in the game, but it's certainly a twist. Check it out by clicking below!

The current generation of video game consoles has been here for around a year now, and it would be nice to look back and see where we stand now. Technically, the current eighth generation of video game consoles began when the Wii U came peeking around the corner in 2012, but only when the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One jumped on the stage did many gamers believe the next generation had arrived. All the current consoles had a somewhat boring start, at least with the launch line-up. There weren't many original ideas, and many games that came out for the systems (at least the Xbox One and Playstation 4) were games that were also coming out for their last-gen versions.

While Xbox fans on the West Coast will be receiving multiple hardware bundles this holiday season – Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Sunset Overdrive bundles have all been announced — Japan will be receiving a very special Halo: The Master Chief Collection bundle.

Upcoming zombie apocalypse game Dying Light is now going to be strictly on current-gen consoles. According to a recent Facebook post, Dying Light is heavily dependent on a "next-gen feel" in its true form, and as such, cutting the game's release the title on last-gen consoles was necessary. Many people feel that the decision to cancel the Xbox 360 and PlayStation versions is actually a positive thing, as this should create a better experience overall.

Dying Light is scheduled for a January 2015 release. What do you think? Is this disappointing, or is it a worthy sacrifice?

EA Access is doing much better than expected, according to Electronic Arts during its recent financial conference call. The subscription-based gaming service has been taken up by many Xbox One gamers, giving them access to games such as Fifa and Madden.

Much of the service's success appears to be coming from the fact that users interested in upcoming titles and who pre-order them through EA Access will be able to download special limited versions of the games before they go on general release (rather like demo versions).

Last year, Microsoft partnered with Pizza Hut to provide an app for Xbox 360 through which consumers could order pizza. Rumor has it that a similar deal could be in the works for Xbox One, only this time, with Domino's. According to the report, simply saying "Domino's, feed me" through the Kinect will bring up the app, which features a pizza builder and a tracking system to monitor your delivery status. This is currently a rumor, though Microsoft is expected to announce the partnership next month.
