Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Gets 101 Trailer

gamrFeed - Thu, 04/28/2016 - 19:07

Square Enix has released the 101 trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

You can view it below:

"In Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, you become Adam Jensen, a counterterrorism agent working for an Interpol unit known as Task Force 29. On the surface, Jensen’s goal is to hunt down terrorists in a world that’s spinning out of control, where mechanically augmented humans live a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society. But what he’s really after are the Illuminati: the men and women who are always pulling the strings. 

"His investigation will take you around the world, with the decisions you make and the actions you take playing a crucial role in determining the game’s outcome. Choose between combat, stealth, social, and hacking approaches to achieve your objectives. Be mindful though, as there will be a meaningful consequence to every action and choice you make."

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided launches worldwide on August 23rd for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Sony: 17.7M PS4s Shipped in Latest Fiscal Year, Lifetime Shipments at 40M

gamrFeed - Thu, 04/28/2016 - 17:43

Sony has released its earnings report for the last fiscal year, which ended March 31st.

Sony shipped 17.7 million PlayStation 4 consoles over the year. That is an increase over the previous year where 14.8 million units were shipped. That would put lifetime shipment figures at 40 million units. 

Sony's Game & Network Services division revenue increased 11.8 percent to $13.7 billion. This was due to the improved PlayStation 4 sales, as well as an increase in Network revenue from $3.2 billion to $4.9 billion.  The division reported an operating profit of $785 million, an 84 percent increase year-over-year. 

Sony as a whole reported $71.7 billion in revenue and $2.7 billion in pre-tax profits.

Sony did not provide a forecast for the 2016 fiscal year, due to the impact of the Kumamoto earthquakes.
