Microsoft has officially confirmed that Xbox One owners won't be able to take screenshots from their games until 2015. Apparently, the feature is to be incorporated with an update, which is also going to bring a variety of changes too.

As for the screenshots, well, "it's a little more technically challenging than I thought," said Xbox boss Phil Spencer. "Two weeks ago, they think they've found a good solution for screenshots. They're working on it. They know people want it. The team has a path to getting it done, and now it's just prioritising."

PS4 already has a screenshots option, just to remind you all.

Shows how little I knew about Titanfall. I swore there already was a co-op mode, I mean, it makes sense, right?

But oh how foolish I am. Titanfall is getting a co-op mode with the next update, which is expected to drop tomorrow for Xbox One and PC.

In the co-op mode, called "Frontier Defense," players will work together in teams of four to defend against waves of AI enemies.

The update also includes ranked play, which will be in a beta for the rest of the month. Ranked play lets players turn on or off a "rank chip", which tracks how well they perform in competitve matches. Ranked play will not be an exclusive map set, so players can climb the leaderboards in any match. It also includes a few new tweaks and fixes, including a sudden death feature in Capture the Flag mode, map fixes, and new Titan insignias.

I'm so happy.

I fucking hate selfies, because no matter what you do, it will always be obvious that you're taking a selfie! And that makes you really gay.

The Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel OST showed up at my door last week, and I had no idea what to expect with this one. Okay, that's not true; I was expecting your typical first-person shooter rock but was instead treated to an odd conglomeration of soothing atmospheric melodies mixed with techno. It's not as weird as Katamari Damacy's soundtrack, and it's not as instantly pleasing as the OST for Max Payne 3, but it's definitely somewhere in the middle.

Here's a snippet:

The Pre-Sequel OST is primarily an atmospheric soundtrack with the occasional catchy tune that got me to chair dance a teensy bit. Because I was not prepared for this tone of music, it took me a few playthroughs to really listen to it. My initial thoughts were that the OST was very weird and most likely isn’t enjoyable outside of the game.

I still stand by that it’s weird, but it doesn’t mean it’s not good. Katamari Damacy’s OST is beyond weird and it’s one of my favorite OSTs. Many of the tracks are rather soothing and catchy. 

Oh and I have plenty of samples within as well. Put on your headphones (or turn up your volume if you aren't at work) and check out a bit of the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel OST.

Halo: Nightfall, Ridley Scott's live-action series on Halo, will debut on Monday November 10th on Xbox Live, Xbox.com, and Twitch. Then what should happen the following day on November 11th? The Halo: The Master Chief Collection will release for Xbox One!

The entire week will be a bit of a celebration of all things Halo, dubbed as HaloFest.

The official trailer for the TV series is above, and it looks pretty slick.

A leaked Achievements list suggests that Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is on the way to the Xbox 360. Many have suggested it's to celebrate the game's ten-year anniversary this year, which is just in 4 days (October 26, 2004). 

In addition, a few forum-goers on NeoGAF have noticed that the Classics version of the game was pulled from the Xbox Live Marketplace as well as the PSN. All signs are pointing toward a remastered version for the Xbox 360 and PS3, although choosing the last gen for a remastered version is an odd choice.

Gamelock.com wants to "revolutionize" how we buy video games. They understand that people may or may not want to keep a game for various reasons, whether it's monetary or just in case they flat out don't like it. As such, whenever you purchase a game from Gamelock, you have the option to lock in a guaranteed resale price at that moment. No more taking it to a certain retailer and hoping you get more than $2. You know up front how much you will receive for your used game. The only catch is, you have to resell it within a specific time frame, with 90 days as the longest time you can lock in your resell price.

“I knew there had to be a better way and that’s why I started GameLock.com,” said Founder and CEO, Andy Altschuler in a press release. “When gamers buy a game at GameLock.com, they can lock-in a guaranteed future resale. If they choose to exercise the resale option, they simply place the game into our prepaid envelope and drop it in the mailbox. Or if they choose not to resell, they can simply keep the game, just like with a traditional purchase.”

I'm curious if Gamelock will be able to add DLC to this in the future, if that's even possible.

US District Court judge has ruled that Electronic Arts cannot be held liable for securities fraud over their confidence in the launch of Battlefield 4.

Last year, a group of investors filed suit against EA for "false and misleading assurances" that Battlefield 4 was ready for launch, which as we all know, ended up being furthest from the truth. Judge Susan Illston said that the lead plaintiffs cannot pursue fraud claims based on any statements EA made after their October 16, 2013 stock purchases. However, if the investors want to substitute in two new lead plaintiffs who bought stock after any misstatements made between October 29th and December 3rd, she would allow the switch. However, the substitution will only be allowed if those new plaintiffs purchased their stock after those dates.

She further agreed that some of the misstatements by EA were corporate confidence, or to use her words, "puffery."

"Defendant [CFO Blake] Jorgensen's Oct. 29, 2013 statement comparing 'BF4' to a World Series ace pitcher is puffery," Judge Illston wrote in her ruling. "Defendant Wilson's Oct. 29, 2013 statement explaining that EA 'worked more closely with Microsoft and Sony throughout the entire process' resulting in a 'launch slate of games that are the best transition games that I've ever seen come out of this company' is an inactionable opinion, as well as a vague statement of corporate optimism."

She also completely dismissed the investors' claims of "intentional or deliberate recklessness," as "the complaint fails to adequately allege falsity and scienter for reasons articulated by defendants."

The plaintiffs have until November 3rd to amend their complaint and substitute in new lead plaintiffs.
