It’s also enticed importan game publishers to become partners and before you knew it, another major console player was born. Details inside.

Throughout the past month, the console’s seen many updates, including support for four controllers, XMB support, partnerships with publishers such as Square-Enix, Namco Bandai just to name a few. The firm’s first exclusive game will be Human Element, the new IP from former Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling.

    interested to see what they end up doing with this!
    theres so much that could be done with it so its really exciting cant wait for it to release!
    it just had one of its best points, being able to play mobile games on a controller wiped out though.
    pretty cool, works with the S3 too!
