Gearbox Software has revealed an update on the Borderlands movie as well as announcing plans to make a Duke Nukem movie. Alright here we go, another video game adaptation (or two) coming our way hoping to break the mold and make the ultimate video game movie that isn't complete and utter trash. There have been a few that have tried to ditched the trash reputation, which was namely started by the first few Resident Evil movies and Super Mario Bros., which was actually considered worse than trash. I guess Mortal Kombat could make that list and if that's the case, we have to throw The Wizard in there too.
Borderlands was announced over a year ago, but news has been relatively quiet since the initial announcement and many have wondered if the movie was going to happen at all. Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford spoke to Geoff Keighley via YouTube »
It’s going on 14 months now since we last caught wind of Lionsgate’s planned Borderlands movie, but according to Randy Pitchford, the adaptation continues to simmer in pre-production with Aaron Berg (G.I. Joe, Section 6) and the team still in the process of developing scripts.
Chatting to Geoff Keighley on YouTube Live at E3 (via Gamezone), the Gearbox CEO also confirmed that Lionsgate’s big-screen adaptation will be rooted in the Borderlands universe – an irreverent, zany space western that is arguably one of the more rich universes in gaming – while still featuring a self-contained story that isn’t beholden to the franchise’s canon.
It’s still early, early days, as evidenced by Pitchford’s hesitancy to divulge anything too specific. Nevertheless, a live-action Borderlands movie is on the way, and with the runaway success of R-rated comic book movies (see: Deadpool, Logan), there is perhaps no better »

Though Sony’s E3 presser wrapped up a little earlier than anticipated, the Japanese giant arguably saved the best for last: Marvel’s Spider-Man, the upcoming PS4 exclusive from Insomniac Games (Sunset Overdrive, Resistance).
Featuring an original story told across a bustling open-world setting, the game’s Creative Director Bryan Intihar has asked fans to look forward to a unique universe – one that’s not based on any of the movies or a comic series but was still created alongside Marvel.
Intihar was interview by Geoff Keighley on YouTube Live yesterday evening (via PlayStation LifeStyle), where the developer took the opportunity to clarify that, yes, Marvel’s Spider-Man will drop you in the middle of New York City without an invisible wall in sight – in a manner of speaking, of course.
As soon as you load up the game, you can go everywhere, right? It’s open. We’re not hiding parts of city… »

Microsoft's 2017 E3 press conference is mere hours away and already some information is starting to leak about Xbox Project Scorpio, the centerpiece of today's presentation.
Game Awards host Geoff Keighley took to Twitter and claimed "with confidence" that the price of Project Scorpio, or whatever the final name ends up being, will be $499.
That price falls on the high end of analyst estimates predicting between $399 and $499. The favored price from analysts was $399 so if $499 holds true then it's 25 percent higher.
Keighley also confirmed that 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray support will be included with Project Scorpio, though stopped short of saying whether Dolby Vision Hdr would also be supported. Newly added Dolby Atmos support for Xbox One S may signal that Dolby Vision support will be present out-of-the-box.
We'll learn more about Xbox Project Scorpio, including a release and first-look at the console, during Microsoft's E3 presser this afternoon at 5 pm Est / 2pm Est. »
One of the most surprising games of E3 2016, Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, will not be on stage this year when Sony presents their wares. Read Kojima's tweet below and see if you can decipher it. Plus, find out when you can see the man, himself, live and in person at E3!
When we began on the long, winding road to E3 2017, one of the games we were most excited to get an update on was Hideo Kojima's first game since Konami, Death Stranding. Alas, we aren't so lucky this year as Kojima has tweeted out that his team has decided to forego E3 2017 in favor of spending that time developing. That didn't mean Kojima, himself, wouldn't still be in attendance, though.
Apologies to our fans, Death Stranding will not be @ E3 as we are fully focused on development. Pls see me with @geoffkeighley on 6/14! pic.twitter.com/w »

For the third year in a row, YouTube plans deliver live streaming coverage of E3, the annual conference at which video game developers and publishers will tease upcoming projects. In 2017, YouTube’s E3 coverage will double in size. As first reported by Variety, the video site plans to offer two days of live streaming content rather than just one.
YouTube’s E3 coverage will begin at 1 Pm Pt on June 11th, will run into the evening, and will resume the next day at noon Pt. In total, the plan is to bring 17 hours of live programming to viewers, including look-ins at major presentations, analysis from studio host Geoff Keighley (pictured above) and his colleagues, segments that will incorporate the stream’s audience, and appearances from top YouTube gamers like AngryJoe, Ali-a, iJustine, MatPat, Nadeshot, and Vikkstar.
YouTube’s first E3 live stream, back in 2015, helped the video site promote its then-new YouTube Gaming hub. »
