News Roundup October 1st

Everyone's favorite bear-wrestling, red spandex wearing fighter is returning in Street Fighter V.  Zangief bring his signature lariats and pile-drivers which have never looked better.  See him in action above.

Remember the news of the somewhat silly pre-order incentive for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided?  After receiving mostly negative feedback, Square Enix has decided to shut down the pre-order program.  Everyone who goes ahead with a pre-order will receive the extra content that was originally in the incentive program.  That does not include the game arriving four days earlier, however.  Given the negative feedback, let's hope it will be awhile before another company tries a similar campaign.

GOG.com has added a few classic FPS titles to its ever expanding library.  Wolfenstein 3D (+ Spear of Destiny), Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Quake II, and Quake III Gold have just arrived at the GOG store.  Bundles of the two Wolfenstein and Quake games will save you 33 percent of their normal price.

The white Xbox One returns!  Microsoft has revealed not one but two new bundles for today.  The first being the Gears of War Ultimate Edition bundle that features the white Xbox One mentioned above.  The bundle comes with a 500 GB hard drive and Gears of War Ultimate Edition for $349.  This bundle will be coming in November exclusively at Walmart.  The next bundle features a Kinect and three games that should make good use of the peripheral.  Those three games are Kinect Sports Rivals, Dance Central Spotlight, and Zoo Tycoon.  This bundle will cost $499 and will be available later this month.

The 45,000 square foot, 2,150 capacity theater in Times Square has been rebranded the Playstation Theater.  This is more or less just putting a name on the theater, but it certainly is a big promotional piece for Sony in New York.  

Trackmania Turbo has fallen out of its 2015 release date and into early next year, Ubisoft reported today.  The additional time will be spent enhancing the game's campaign and interface.
