Doom, Fallout and more will come to other consoles on "case by case basis."
I don't like consolidation like this, but Microsoft has been a pretty good steward of their game studios. It seems they just want to buy studios to make sure they can have a library of games for Game Pass, but they're not trying to control them completely. I'm wary of this deal but not too worried.
Now that Microsoft has acquired a bevy of new development studios including Bethesda, here are some prospective games that we're excited to see.
Prey is one of my favorite games! I can't believe I didn't think about it when I heard about this deal. If this deal means we get a Prey 2, I'll be ecstatic.
iOS maker says it's worried Epic could insert another "trojan horse" if allowed.
This case is a mess. I'm not a fan of Epic, but the industry, and society in general, will be in a bad place if Apple wins. If users only have one choice of vendor to purchase from, they represent a market. And Apple controls that market 100%.
Today, we are launching a pilot program to give developers a way to promote their add-ons on addons.mozilla.org (AMO). This pilot program, which will run ...
Not a huge fan of this. Taking money to evaluate extensions means people or teams with less resources aren't going to be able to reach as many people as before. And putting a caution label on extensions that Mozilla hasn't approved is just as bad. So even when smaller teams get their extension in front of people, Mozilla is going to warn them off. Extensions are the biggest thing Mozilla has going for them in the browser space. Narrowing their usefulness is just going to annoy large parts of their remaining userbase.
Jack Wallen has a big idea to help Linux succeed with hardware manufacturers and software companies: Flagship Linux.
Can't say that I'm a fan of this idea. I think a Flagship Linux would just overshadow all other distributions (see Chrome vs other web browsers, Mastodon vs other fediverse servers). Nothing is stopping OEMs and developers from picking a distro and specializing in it. That's what Dell did with the XPS laptops. They chose Ubuntu, Pine went with Manjaro for the PineBooks, System76 ships with their own PopOS. Then a non-technical user gets to choose which one they prefer, instead of being stuck to Flagship Linux.
