Early on in the current generation of consoles, Microsoft hasn't been particularly aggressive in their third-party strategy. Many third-party "exclusives" turned out to be only timed exclusives (Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, and Rise of the Tomb Raider), and Microsoft's partnership with Call of Duty for early DLC has switched over to Sony. It looks like this is a trend we can expect to continue throughout the generation, as Xbox boss Phil Spencer has revealed that Microsoft is investing more in their first-party IP and won't be paying out for third-party content very frequently.

Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 was a huge hit on Kickstarter, and nearly two years later the game is finally set to launch in September. Or...it was. Unfortunately, it appears that is no longer the case. Some retail listings have been popping up lately suggesting that Mighty No. 9 won't launch until 2016, and Game Informer has confirmed that these listings are accurate.

Developer Keiji Inafune announced that development of Mighty No. 9 was completed in January, and platform selection emails were sent out a month ago, but it appears that we still have a long wait for the game. Game Informer suggests (via input from parent company GameStop) that the generic 2016 placeholder indicates that the listings came directly from either Comcept or publisher Deep Silver, but neither company is available for comment at this time, so we're not sure why the delay is happening. We'll keep you up to date as we learn more.

Originally announced for Xbox One at E3 this year by Rare, Rare Replay provides a collection of 30 games from their past 30 years of releases. Notable games in the collection include the Banjo-Kazooie series, both Viva Piñata games, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and many others. However, in a recent Twitch stream by a part of the Rare team, they suggested something that could potentially make many fans very happy. Head inside to learn more!

Bethesda's marketing executive, Pete Hines, has said that the development of Fallout 4 is "basically done." This means that no last-minute requests from fans can be added before the game's release on November 10th, 2015, according to Hines.

Wii U launched with a survival-horror game from Ubisoft called ZombiU, but the game wasn't profitable and plans for a sequel were scrapped. We've been hearing rumblings that ZombiU would resurface on other platforms, and today we have confirmation. Re-titled simply as Zombi, Ubisoft's terrifying game is set to launch digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 18th. It will feature updated visuals from the original, but we're not sure how the gameplay will be reworked to make up for the lack of a GamePad. You can check out the first trailer for Zombi by clicking below!

Earlier this month, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept unveiled Red Ash: The Indelible Legend. Inafune had incredible success using Kickstarter for Mighty No. 9, but things haven't been going so well with his latest game. With just four days left to go, Kickstarter funding is only slightly above half of the goal, but the Mega Man Legends-inspired adventure isn't being cancelled.

The Red Ash team has announced that they've struck a deal with Chinese digital entertainment company Fuze. Fuze will be funding the prologue chapter, The KalKanon Incident, but Comcept will be allowed to retain rights to the IP. Funds from Kickstarter (if the goal is met and the funds can be kept by Comcept) will go towards additional content and future stretch goals. Are you happy with this outcome?

Rise of the Tomb Raider got quite a lot of buzz at E3 this year, but only Xbox One owners will be able to play the game come this holiday season. The game launches on PC early next year and will reach the PlayStation 4 by the holiday season in 2016, but plenty of fans have expressed disappointment over waiting to play the game on their hardware of choice.

Square Enix has come forward and stated it wasn't easy to let down other players. Head inside for the quote.

CR Projekt Red recently revealed the final free DLC for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would be a New Game+ mode of the game.

CD Projekt Red has offered a glimpse at the new mode. Head inside for more.

Randy Pitchford, the CEO of Gearbox Software, continues to stay in the hot seat regarding Aliens: Colonial Marines. After numerous references to the game's controversy in speeches – including one in which he called some gamers "sadists" – and a statement released to IGN, Pitchford has been interviewed by Eurogamer. The results continue Pitchford's technique of running in circles. However, this time the denials are far more blunt and almost laughable at times.

Bethesda has said that they cannot make any more Fallout 4: Pip-Boy Edition Pip-Boy units, despite repeated manufacturing runs. The manufacturers responsible for creating the units, which can incorporate a smartphone, simply cannot fit any more production runs into their schedules, meaning that if you haven't already secured one of the bundles, you won't be able to acquire a Pip-Boy.

When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launched this May, CD Projekt Red promised consumers that a whopping total of sixteen free DLC items would be made available in the following weeks. Previous content releases have contained extra quests, armor sets, and alternate costumes for some of the game's characters. Now, as the final piece of free DLC, CD Projekt Red is going to be giving The Witcher 3 a New Game Plus mode! However, don't get too excited just yet, as this content won't be ready for release this week.

BioWare knows the wait for Mass Effect: Andromeda is painful for fans to endure, so they ease the torment with occasional glimpses at development. They've now released a video in which the game's lead level designer, Colin Campbell, describes "a day in the life" of a developer at the studio.

Furthermore, series producer Michael Gamble has shared an image comparing in-game engine footage of Andromeda with a CG cutscene from Mass Effect 3. You can view both the video and the image inside.

The release of Windows 10 is just around the corner, and one of the announced features of the new operating system is the ability to stream games from an Xbox One to a device running Windows 10. Recently, a fan on Twitter asked Microsoft's Phil Spencer whether or not streaming in the opposite manner — from a Windows 10 device to Xbox One — would also be possible. Spencer replied that while he liked the idea, there were no plans for this at the moment. He added that this concept would, of course, require keyboard and mouse functionality on Xbox One and stated that support for that input method will be coming to the platform before long.
