Sad day for gamers and fans.
Microsoft shuts down Lionhead Studios today. The former UK studio was created by Peter Molyneux in 1996 and created series such as Black & White and Fable.
The next game, Fable Legends, was planned to be released for the XBOX One and PC. The game was supposed to feature five players, four being heroes and one being a villain.
With the shutting down of Lionhead, it seems that Denmark-based studio, Press Play will close its doors as well, along with a planned XBOX One game called Project Knoxville.
We wish both studio employees best of luck in the future.
If you are one of many people who are still rocking Sony’s handheld, the Playstation Portable (PSP), mad props and respect to you.
However, it’s probably time for an upgrade.
Sony announced yesterday that on March 31st, it will shut down it’s Playstation Store services for the PSP. Here’s the official press release from Sony’s support website.
“On March 31, 2016, the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®Portable (PSP®) system in the SCEA region will be closed. PSP system users will be able to purchase PSP content from the web-based PlayStation Store at store.playstation.com, and also access past purchases from the Download list on their PSP system. Users will continue to have the ability to make in-game purchases from their PSP system.
Select PSP games are also available for purchase on the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®Vita system users.”
Hopefully all PSP titles will be available for the Vita? Only time will tell.
Electronic Arts has shut down its developer studio, Maxis. Founded by Will Wright and Jeff Braun, the company has been responsible for creating the Simcity and Sims series for 29 years.
We wish the Maxis team a farewell and good luck in the future.
