Dota 2 International prize pool up over $8 million

Ten bucks gets you the Dota 2 Compendium, which guy who actually knows about Dota 2 Patrick Hancock says is better than last year's. A portion of the purchase also goes towards raising The International tournament prize pool. Last year, the prize pool was $2,874,381. Right now it's $8,304,958. The stretch goals only go up to $10 million. Crazy!

Arma 3 sales cross 1 million

We're always talking about DayZ sales -- now over 2 million -- but the game that made DayZ possible, Arma, is quietly doing well in its own right for developer Bohemia. Arma 3 has just crossed one million sold. Bohemia boss Marek Spanel announced the milestone on Twitter and provided a visual roadmap for the next two years of Arma 3. It includes a major expansion and helicopter and marksmen DLC.

Nvidia's Titan Z costs more than the last car I bought

Nvidia is preparing to launch the previously announced GeForce GTX Titan Z. It costs three grand. Roughly $.50 for each of its 5,760 CUDA cores or $250 for each gig of its 12GB GDDR5 VRAM. This is not a product for normal human consumption, of course, unless you are a lunatic or think your four door sedan could use a jet engine.

Take-Two 'in growth mode,' CEO open to buying more studios

If you hear some hootin' and hollerin', and maybe spot a party hat or two, that's just Capcom celebrating its decent fiscal year. Not everybody actually makes money anymore, so don't rain on its parade. Capcom's good year was...
