Overwatch, the upcoming team based shooter from Blizzard Entertainment will in fact be coming to Playstation 4 and Xbox One, in addition to the PC. Blizzard confirmed the arrival to console today, with a version titled Overwatch: Origins Edition appearing in a pre-order promotion on Battle.net. Its currently slated to arrive next spring.
It’s not clear on what this Origins Edition title means. The console announcement was somewhat leaked by GameStop yesterday, so it looks like Blizzard have had to reveal the title early ahead of BlizzCon 2015, which kicks off today, Friday November 6. GameStop had posted that they were now accepting pre-orders for a console version of the shooter. It was listed at $60. Gaming outlets Kotaku and IGN followed up with local GameStop stores, who confirmed that the retailer was accepting pre-orders for the title. The name was listed internally as Overwatch: Origin Edition which at the time had not been confirmed by Blizzard. »

French developer Amplitude Studios have officially unlocked the all new Australium update – due to the stretch goals being hit – this update will be featuring new official Team Fortress 2 content and is available for all gamers who have purchased Dungeon of the Endless.
The Australium update picks up after a brutal gravel war, where four mercenaries from two competing companies are prospecting for the rare element Australium. With hard work and a little luck they’ll convert their battle-honed skills into cold hard earned cash, thanks to the extensive loads of Australium rumored to exist on Auriga.

Blizzard Entertainment has unwittingly found itself in the midst of an IP dispute after its trademark application for Overwatch, the studio’s recently announced objective-based shooter, was suspended courtesy of a smartphone app of the same name that had been submitted two months prior.
As a result, this “conflict of likelihood” may force Blizzard’s hand into changing the name of Overwatch in order to comply with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. First unearthed by NeoGaf, the documents reveal that the authority has withheld Blizzard’s application for the team-based shooter until further notice and as of the time of writing, the company is yet to respond to Innovis Labs, Inc’s claim. All things considered, it’s safe to assume that Blizzard will opt to change the branding of the game so as to avoid any legal action.
Overwatch was initially revealed during the company’s annual BlizzCon event in November, »

At least one online community managed to thrive while the Playstation Network and Xbox Live struggled over the holiday period – Steam set a record for the number of concurrent users, thanks to its Steam holiday sale.
Valve’s digital store broke a massive 8.4 million mark on January 1st. Yet, according to Steam’s Game and Player Statistics Page, it reached even greater heights at 11am on January 2nd, with 8,500,245 concurrent users. That’s certainly a record-breaker then, as it is up from 8,020,700 concurrent users back in June 2014.
Steam’s annual sale is likely what kept people coming back to the digital store over the holidays, as it continually introduced new discounts every 12 hours. In September, Valve announced that Steam had more than 100 million active accounts, which is up from 75 million announced in January 2013.
Steam’s most popular game is Dota 2, with a peak of 879,827 players. It is followed up by »
