The Daily Hotness: One hundred billion dollars!

11:59 PM on 05.24.2013 // Abel Girmay

Check out everything Destructoid did today

In a recent interview with OXM, Microsoft made the bold statement that they expect all next-gen systems to sell a total of one billion units, which is why they must focus so much on the non-game related functionally of the Xbox One. The genius! So apparently Microsoft has figured out that if their next console does this many of things, and people want that many of things, then they will sell about a billion of their Xbox One things. Because reason and math.

This all makes sense the less you think about it.

Today, more whispers hit the rumor mill, as its seems Microsoft will be demanding a cut of used games sales from retailers. Wii U sales also enjoyed a nice little bump following the Xbox One announcement, and Ashley Burch is the defender of all things mousey in this week's HAWP. Brett stands in defense of Microsoft's reveal, Chris has a few thoughts on platform fandom, and the minds behind Euro Truck Simulator are back to their mundane-into-magic tricks again with Chemical Spillage Simulation.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Why is every Quickpost now spaced out like poems with random amounts of stanzas that never ever rhyme?

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

Just tried Fallout 4 on my PC Via my Cousins steam account and nope, it does not run for me very well. Buying the PS4 version it is!

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.

Being a video game-focused website, it's not often I get to gush about Godzilla. So have a link to one of my favorite tracks in the entire series:

Fallout 4 really does bring back memories. Specifically, memories of finding unlikely loot on a animal's corpse. I'm just grateful that Bloatfly didn't know how to use that 15 pound flamethrower it was apparently carrying in its bum bag.

I no longer require seasoning for my Thanksgiving dinner because between the Lightning post here and Undertale beating Fallout 3 in the "best game" vote on GameFAQs, I have all the salt I need. (Image) [img][/img]

Thanks for that Mother 4 article yesterday I've been listening to nothing but GBA-era soundtracks, truly my golden years of gaming.

If you stop to think about it, Thanksgiving is basically #Darksiders2: The Holiday.
