6w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman detailed some of the game-changing additions to XCOM: Enemy Within below today.
To quote: XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of 2012′s gaming triumphs; an obsessively playable sci-fi epic that injected new life into the turn-based tactics genre.
As the commander of the counter-extraterrestrial agency XCOM, you faced impossible choices on both a macro and micro level. Send aid to China and risk upsetting Africa? Send a trooper into harm's way to save a high-level comrade, or eat the loss and regroup from a stronger defensive position? XCOM is at its best when the stakes are highest.
With XCOM: Enemy Within, legendary developer Firaxis is expanding on the foundation of the original with tons of new maps, new equipment, new aliens, a mechanized soldier class, and new genemods that can transform your troopers into superhuman killing machines. We caught up with Lead Designer Ananda Gupta to get the inside scoop, and we sent him some of your questions.
BVAidan: Is this a new game or an add on? I'm new to the series and don't know much about XCOM.
Ananda Gupta: It's an expansion to last year's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and on PS3 you'll be able to get all of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, all the DLC that was released for that game, and...

24w ago - At this year's E3 Expo a company called Exeo Entertainment announced news of what they call the Extreme Gamer XG 10 Disc Changer for streaming video games on PS3, XBox 360 and the Nintendo Wii consoles.
Below are some additional details, to quote: "Physical media might lend itself well to the used games market (well, usually), but it does have a distinct disadvantage over digital purchases: you still have to get up and change that disc.
It's a minor annoyance, but apparently enough of one to spark the creation of the Exeo Entertainment Extreme Gamer XG 10, an Xbox 360 / PlayStation 3 compatible game jukebox with room for ten retail titles. Unlike other Xbox 360 disc changers, however, this one won't void your warranty.
According to Exeo Entertainment, the Extreme Gamer pipes disc data to the console through USB or ethernet ports. The operation sounds a little fishy, but Exeo Entertainment assured us the device is on the up and up - console makers allow it to function because the data is processed on the console itself.
It's a neat trick, but it does seem a little late, considering the stars of this year's E3. The company told us it's aware of this, and is already planning to build a next-gen...
