Sony’s UK market share of home and handheld consoles has grown from 23 percent to 40 percent over the last two years, said Gara. He also reminded the audience that the PlayStation 4 was the fastest selling console in UK history.

Rust, the survival game from the creator of Garry’s Mod, has quickly been overtaking its predecessor –– as of today, Garry Newman and Facepunch Studios have sold 750,000 copies of Rust.

Those copies were sold in a month and a half; that’s two-thirds of what Garry’s Mod sold in eight years. Rust has also been the top-seller on Steam for almost two weeks, placing just above DayZ, according to the Steam sales chart. Facepunch never expected this; it’s been a blessing and a curse.

After all the hoopla surrounding Shia LaBeouf’s plagiarism of a Daniel Clowes comic and subsequent ‘retirement,’ it seems the actor hasn’t actually retired at all. In fact, he’s signed to star opposite Bill Murray in Barry Levinson’s new movie,  Rock the Kasbah.

Zynga has reached a deal to acquire NaturalMotion, the UK-based gaming company behind Clumsy Ninja and other titles, for half a billion dollars. The announcement came this afternoon, alongside the sad news that Zynga would be laying off 15% of its work force.

The deal is interesting for a few reasons. The first is the price tag: $527 million in cash and Zynga stock. That makes this the company’s largest acquisition to date—more than twice its OMGPOP buyout. And two, it signals a change of direction for the game-maker…(…)
