In 1989, Capcom, much to the delight of gamers young & old, released the critically acclaimed Disney DuckTales. Many viewed this game as one of the best games, ever, on the NES. The game sold so well it was later ported over to the Gameboy. Sales combined between both platforms were over the 2 million mark.

Thus, fans were overjoyed when at PAX East 2013, Capcom announced that they would be releasing a DuckTales: Remastered in the summer of 2013. WayForward Technologies has been working on this title since 2011. Ducktales: Remastered has already launched for PC, PS3 and WiiU but the Xbox 360 version will not be released till September 11, 2013.

Kuno Interactive announced via Twitter this week that they’ll be releasing Defense Technica on XBLA and PSN on October 9th. Steam users can download the game on October 10th.

Who are Kuno Interactive? They are a new developer from Seoul South Korea and on their site it mentions that they either are working on or have released such games as Moro Moro Train and Mutant Defense; both titles are for the PSN. A quick search of the internet did not yield any results for either game.

With the release of the Xbox One being mere months away, Microsoft is increasingly releasing more news about their next gen console. Last Friday was no different, as Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer, posted news on the Xbox Wire site about sharing digital games and Xbox Gold.

In Whitten’s article, he explained that essentially any digital game that is download is now tied to the gamertag and/or the Xbox One it was purchased on. What this means is that if a household has at least one Xbox Gold account, all other gamertags can play that same digital game. The Xbox Gold account does not need to be signed in.

Also, if a gamer goes to his/her friend’s house, they can sign into that friend’s Xbox One with the purchasing Xbox Gold credentials and the game will become available for them to play. No more traveling around with a USB stick that contains pre-loaded games.
