In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura explained why the recently announced Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth By Sleep: A Fragmentory Passage is a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
In the interview, Nomura revealed that, because Kingdom Hearts 0,2 is being developed using Kingdom Hearts III technology, it can only be developed for PlayStation 4–instead of being developed on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
GameStop, the world’s largest video game retailer, has revealed, during its recent earnings report conference call, that its moving away from “digital bundles.”
Instead, the retailer will feature only “physical bundles,” which will include games physically in the packaging.
This new strategy went into effect last month with the release of Madden NFL 16 in which the retailer worked with Sony, Microsoft, and Electronic Arts to make sure a physical copy of the game was featured within every bundle sold.
During the conference call, GameStop COO Tony Bartel stated that, if Microsoft and Sony want to continue with digital bundles, the retailer will turn to “third-party physical bundles.”
Mojang CWO Owen Hill said that Minecraft: Story Mode, a Telltale episodic game based in the Minecraft universe, is “pretty funny.”

Yesterday, at Minecon in London, developers Mojang and Telltale Games detailed Minecraft: Story Mode.
