Battlefield Hardline Delayed by EA to allow more time to polish Battlefield Hardline, or were EA scared off by COD and Destiny’s Pre-order numbers? It seems likely that EA got cold feet realising that 3 shooters in the market so close together and with the relative strength of the competition EA weren’t going to see big sales numbers.

The Death of F2P Free to Play in today’s opinion video I discuss the repercussions of Google removing Free2Play games that have IAP’s and the impact this is going to have across the eco-systems. Google has said it won’t list games with IAP’s as Free2Play, Apple on the other hand is defending it’s systems as having ample parental controls. Let me know in the comments what you think!
Destiny Beta Review PlayStation 4 I’ve spent the weekend playing Destiny non-stop and I have to say it’s near perfection. Delivering a knock out blow of FPS action, Co-op Gameplay and PVP game mechanics that blends nicely with the over arching narrative. Destiny delivers something really next-gen and it does it with style and ambition rarely seen in a shooter today.
Xbox One Doomed to Third Place? With the latest Xbox One sales numbers now out and Sony once again claiming the Top spot we ask the question, Is Microsoft doomed to Third Place in the console war behind Nintendo? Microsoft’s exclusive release slate for the next year looks weak with many of the console shipping games not due to 2015. With Sony so strong and Nintendo due to launch Fusion around 2016 with more power than the PS4 on paper, could this spell third place for Microsoft this cycle?
Doom has ID Tech 6 Game Engine well this is good news, Doom will make use of a new engine, ID Tech 6 will power Doom with an all new engine that looks certain to impress. No word if Carmack was involved in it’s creation before he left and no word is MegaTextures will feature (lets hope not)

YouTubers Paid to Review this is an issue we have talked about on Androidizen before but it’s worth going over the facts again.
Windows 9 Start Menu with Tiles Leaks looks like Microsoft is getting closer to Windows 9’s final form or at least how the Start Menu will return in Windows 9. I’ve spoken to my contacts at Microsoft that says the Screenshot aligns perfectly with their knowledge of the situation at Microsoft, although they haven’t seen the most up-to date build. They say if it’s a fake it’s bang on for the current design thinking at Microsoft. Take that as you will, but this does appear to be the real deal.
Xbox Division Not For Sale say Microsoft It’s official Microsoft is not putting Xbox up for sale to a new owner. We didn’t really expect them to but news they were talking to Amazon and others about a price at least makes it sound like they went through the motions of understanding Xbox’s value to the company. “We are fortunate to have Xbox in our family to go after this opportunity with unique and bold innovation,” Nadella wrote. “Microsoft will continue to vigorously innovate and delight gamers with Xbox. Xbox is one of the most-revered consumer brands, with a growing online community and service, and a raving fan base.”

Voyager Air 2 from Corsair, in today’s review we take a first look at the Voyager Air 2 a 1TB portable Hard Drive with built in Wifi and a Battery. The Voyager Air 2 makes easy access to your files on the go a snap with Direct connect or Wifi Pass through and if you need more speed use the USB3 with any compatible computer for blazing fast transfers. The inclusion of DLNA support is a real plus allowing your media recivers and bridges to pull content from the Voyager Air 2 with little buffering. Voyager Air 2 also includes an Android and iOS app to allow you to browse the device and access advanced settings like DLNA. Another unexpected feature is the DropBox and Google Drive support that makes the Voyager Air 2 one of the most connectable portable storage systems we have ever seen. “Voyager Air 2 is the wireless drive that’s optimized for mobility. It lets you enjoy all your videos, music, and photos wherever you go, freed from the storage limitations of your tablet and smartphone. It’s a great choice if you want the powerful storage and streaming features of the Voyager Air but you don’t need a wired connection to your home network.”
