    Thief Announced for Xbox 360 and PS3

    Previously a next-gen and PC exclusive, Eidos Montreal announced today that its hotly anticipated stealth reboot Thief will also ship for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 day-and-date with the next-gen versions. A release date for the stealthy game hasn't been announced beyond '2014', though.

     

    Like virtually everyone else, Thief impressed us at E3. Like Eidos Montreal's previous game Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Thief seems to smartly streamline and modernize the franchise without losing the heart and soul that made it such a huge hit to begin with.

    Has PS4’s Release Date Been Accidentally Revealed?

    Has PS4’s Release Date Been Accidentally Revealed?

    Update: Sony has responded to our request for comment. "No further announcements/comments to make at this time. PlayStation 4 is launching this holiday season."

     

    The original story is below.

     

    At Sony’s 2013 E3 press conference, the company finally showed off what the PlayStation 4 looks like, and it even revealed the price of the unit. But mum was the word on when consumers could expect to pick up the console, other than confirming that it would indeed be available in 2013.

     

    Well, it looks like we may have a release date, at least for parts of Europe.

     

    NeoGAF member Cyborg posted the picture below from a Media Markt store in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It pinpoints the release date for the console as November 13, 2013. Others in the thread point to European online outlets that also have the date pegged for November 13, 2013.

    Xbox One policy reversal a "win/win" for consumers, says GameFly

    Rental company executive says original proposal would have been "detrimental" to various business systems.

    Microsoft's decision to reverse its Xbox One used game policy is a "win/win" for consumers, GameFly cofounder Sean Spector told Joystiq in a new interview.

    "I always felt good about the future of GameFly, but I feel better today," Spector said. "Today is a win/win for consumers, as well as GameFly. I think choice is always important and now consumers have more choice. And I give [Microsoft] credit for listening to their consumers."

     

    Spector went on to say that Microsoft's previous plan "would have been detrimental to lots of people's [business] systems" and not just GameFly's.

     

    Microsoft's former policy stood to negatively impact GameFly's business, as it stated that Xbox One games could only be shared once, and only to someone a player has been friends with on Xbox Live for 30 days.

     

    GameFly is not the only company to applaud Microsoft's policy reversal. GameStop, which makes a significant portion of its revenue from secondhand sales, said the move was "great news" for gamers.

     

    GameStop shares have since surged.

    Retailer's stock value up more than 5 percent in early trading after Microsoft's policy reversal for Xbox One.

    GameStop shares surged today after Microsoft announced a new Xbox One policy that lifts all limitations on used games for the platform.

    At press time, GameStop shares are up 5.32 percent (+2.39) to $40.57.

     

    Microsoft's new terms state players are free to trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc-based games in the same way that they can today on Xbox 360.

     

    The new policy is a boon for GameStop, which makes a significant portion of its revenue from secondhand sales.

     

    GameStop praised Microsoft's policy reversal yesterday, saying the move was "great news" for gamers and is a testament to Microsoft's understanding of importance of used game market.

     

    Microsoft's former policy was less-than-encouraging for GameStop, stating that Xbox One games could only be shared once, and only to someone a player has been friends with on Xbox Live for 30 days.

     

    In addition, whether or not secondhand Xbox One games would be allowed at all was in the hands of individual publishers like Activision or Electronic Arts.
