First 20 Minutes of inFAMOUS: Second Son Gameplay Leaked

Although inFAMOUS: Second Son isn't due out until March 21, 2014, apparently there are copies of the game already floating around, and some have even taking to sharing the first 20 minutes of the game. Click the link if you want to get spoiled.

Second Son is turning out be a huge seller for the PlayStation, even out-pacing the numbers set by last year's The Last of Us pre-orders, as has been reported in the gaming media.

Additionally, there's also confirmation that there'll be two digital versions of Second Son available on the PS Store from midnight on release day, the standalone title and Infamous Second Son Legacy Edition. The Legacy Edition will include the first Second Son DLC pack, entitled Cole's Legacy.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Delayed Until February, 2015 says CD Projekt Red

Those expecting to play the highly-anticipated The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have to wait just a bit longer. Originally scheduled for a Fall, 2014 release, the developers CD Projekt Red have decided to push the release date back to February of next year. In an open letter to consumers, the studio says that while they could release the game this Fall as originally scheduled, they'd rather take the additional few months to refine the game, solidifying the quality that they sought to originally achieve, and what they believe the gamers deserve.

Here's the full open letter:

Ever since we started working on the third installment in The Witcher franchise, it has been our aim to produce a title that would take our 11 years of experience in creating RPGS and distill them into a quintessence, into a game that would effectively crown those years. At the same time, we have wanted The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, develop the genre as a whole. Ultimately, you, the players, must get an unforgettable adventure to experience in a vast, open world – and that’s most important. We’ve created a story that flows naturally, cinematically, rendered it in amazing sound and visuals, while preserving full freedom of choice – all for you. We knew this to be an ambitious plan, but believed we could achieve it by bringing together our team with its creative energies and current gaming platforms with their technical capabilities. A project this vast and complex would inevitably require special care in its final stages, manual fine-tuning of many details, thorough testing time and again.

We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game’s final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015.

Dear gamers - we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We’re sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment.

Dear shareholders – we are aware of the responsibility that rests with us and thank you for the trust you have granted us thus far. We firmly believe that quality – more than any other factor – determines a game’s success, and that the decision we have made is thus equally valid in business terms.

Dark Souls II Initial Review Scores Are In

Costume Quest 2 Confirmed

The original Costume Quest had a simple premise: It's Halloween and you're going trick-or-treating. The problem is, goblins have entered your dimension with the sole purpose of stealing candy. During their siege, they manage to kidnap your sister.You must band together with your neighbors, collecting candy and new more powerful costumes if you're to save her.

The formula must have worked, seeing as Costume Quest was voted the best PSN game of 2010. After receiving a rather short DLC expansion, the series had been seemingly forgotten. Now developer Double Fine has announced that Costume Quest 2 is in full production. If all goes as planned, the sequel will be ready in time for a Halloween launch with new costumes, locations and character. The game will release on PC and consoles this October.

Server Rentals Coming to Battlefield 4

It looks like EA has rental servers in the works for console versions of Battlefield 4, or at least for the latest gen of consoles. Unfortunately, no solid details have been released other than what Battlelog Forums Community Manager, EA_Stiv, posted in response to a question posted by a forum member over on Battlelog.

Indeed, it is coming. I'm afraid we don't have any information on this quite yet, but it is coming soon! Keep your eyes peeled on the Control Room and Battlefield blog, as those are most likely where you'll see it announced first.
Currently, only the PC version of Battlefield 4 has rental servers available to gamers. I can assume that these servers work in much the same way rental servers worked for the previous iteration of the Battlefield franchise. Renting a server allows you to take control of things, such as dictating "server settings such as private or public, map and mode rotations. Users can choose ranked or unranked servers. Unranked servers do not track player stats, unlike ranked servers, and are less expensive than the ranked option."
