News Bites – 30th of June 2016
– Microsoft has announced their Games with Gold titles for the month of July. Starting tomorrow Xbox gamers will be able to grab The Banner Saga 2 on Xbox One and Rainbow Six: Las Vegas 2 on the Xbox 360. At the mid-point of the month indie title, Tumblestone will hit the X1 and Tron: Evolution on the 360. Don’t forget, as always the Xbox 360 titles are also playable on the Xbox One.
– Not to be outdone Sony has also announced their monthly free titles from the PS Plus program. On the PS4 gamers will get Saints Row: Gat out of Hell and Furi. PS3 players will get Fat Princess and Call to Juarez: Bound in Blood. Finally, those still playing their PS Vita will get access to Prince of Persia: Revelations and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines. Not a bad month from both companies really.
– Super Mutant Alien Assault, the addictive little shooter from Cybernate and Suprise Attack is getting a console release. The game will be hitting consoles on July 12. We thought it was a blast and it should feel right at home on the PS4 and Xbox One.
– With the upcoming Federal election about to take place, The Greens (lead by long time Video Game Industry champion Scott Ludlum) have announced that they will be taking a 158 million dollar package designed to boost the games industry in Australia to the election. This package could do wonders for the local industry so let’s hope that the Greens win enough seats to push this promise through.
