Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Sales Are Peachy With Over 1 Million Sold In Japan

Nintendo has announced that the first week of Super Smash Bros. 3DS sales have been, well, smashing. The publisher says that over 1 million copies of the handheld version have been sold in Japan.
This number represents sales to consumers, including digital copies of the game. Super Smash Bros. 3DS won’t reach our shores for another couple of weeks. 
The title arrives on October 3, with an early demo available with code now and a public trial opening up on September 19.

Destiny’s Vault of Glass Raid Opens At 2 A.M. Pacific Tonight

If you’re a night owl on the west coast or an early bird on the east, you can plan to jump into Destiny’s first raid as soon as it opens. We hope you’re ready though, because even though you can access it at lower than level 26, you probably shouldn’t.
The Vault of Glass raid opens at 2 a.m. Pacific tonight (September 16, 2014). Bungie has reassured fans that the opportunity will be open long-term. It’s not a timed event.
However, the six-person excursion is lengthy and will only save your progress for a week. So, if you haven’t yet hit level 20 and earned enough “light” gear to attempt the raid, don’t fret.

NBA 2K15 wonders "What if?" in MyTeam trailer

2K Sports recently offered a new trailer and details for NBA 2K15's MyTeam mode. Similar to EA Sports' various Ultimate Team modes, MyTeam has players building a squad of basketballers from across the sport's history, improving their team gradually over time.

One of the ways they'll be able to build their team this year is through a real-time auction house, seen in a few of the game's screens provided by 2K. Players will also have a challenge mode to put their team through its paces in several "What if?" fantasy scenarios. 2K Sports plans to add both multiplayer and weekly challenges to MyTeam throughout the year as well as user-created content. NBA 2K15 will launch October 7 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.


Play Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire 3DS Demo, Transfer Some Data to the Full Games


The new Super Smash Bros. is not the only Nintendo game that 3DS owners will soon have the opportunity to play ahead of release. Nintendo today announced a "special" demo version of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire that will let fans transfer some content into the full game, although it's being very coy with the details.

According to Nintendo, the demo will contain "gameplay that players won't experience anywhere else." It didn't elaborate on exactly what it means by that, but did tease that a "familiar" Pokemon that can now Mega Evolve can be obtained while playing the demo. Once the full game is out, this Mega-Evolved Pokemon--along with unspecified items you'll obtain while playing the demo--can be transferred to your copy of Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. Details for doing so will be revealed "soon."

There's no word yet on when the demo will be released, but you will need a special code in order to download it. Again, Nintendo isn't saying how you'll get one right now; that information is also coming sometime "soon."

In addition to the new trailer you can watch below, Nintendo today announced a raft of details regarding Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which are 3DS remakes of the Game Boy Advance Ruby and Sapphire games. This includes Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Global Link support for the remakes, as well as the fact that Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza will be available.

It also revealed the new abilities that Primal forms of Groudon and Kyogre (Ruby and Sapphire's respective Legendary Pokemon) will gain when undergoing Primal Reversion. As explained by Nintendo:

Primal Groudon gains the Desolate Land Ability, which changes the weather condition to extremely harsh sunlight. Opponents cannot change the weather condition during extremely harsh sunlight, meaning moves like Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail, and Water-type attacks will fizzle out. Abilities like Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will also fail to activate. Groudon can unleash a move unique to it alone, Precipice Blades, a powerful attack that can hit multiple opponents with an upward surge of sharp rocks.

Primal Kyogre's exclusive Ability is Primordial Sea, which changes the weather condition to an oppressive heavy rain. As with extremely harsh sunlight, opponents cannot change the weather condition during heavy rain. The Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail to activate, and Fire-type attacks become ineffective as well. Kyogre has its own move that only it can use, Origin Pulse, an attack that can slam multiple opponents with water massed into ballistic orbs.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire launch in North America on November 21.

Oculus Rift Consumer Version Release Date Could Be 'Summer 2015'


The long-awaited consumer version of Oculus Rift could begin to ship by summer 2015, according to alleged sources speaking to two separate publications.

Both TechRadar and VRFocus claim that a market-ready Oculus Rift will launch in a "strictly limited" public beta half way into 2015.

Though specs and release date plans for the consumer version of Oculus Rift (known as CV1) are not public, a limited supply of the latest prototype (known as DK2) is available to developers and hobbyists.

Oculus VR, the company formed by creator Palmer Luckey, has urged gamers to hold out for CV1 and resist the developer version.

That long wait for the consumer version could end as soon as April 2015, with a strictly limited test supply, although both TechRadar and VRFocus suggest that "summer 2015" (which runs from late June to August) could be the more realistic target for general release.

Oculus exec Nate Mitchell recently claimed that the consumer version of Oculus Rift will be priced somewhere between $200 and $400.

Palmer Luckey has also previously stated the consumer version would be a significant improvement on the DK2's 1080p display, with a 90Hz refresh rate.

Oculus VR has declined to comment.
