The Catch-Up: March 13th, 2014 – Take-Two Trademarks ‘Hangar 13’

You can watch 3 minutes of Final Fantasy X HD today, then play the other 40 hours next week.

General News

  • Don’t get too excited yet, but Take-Two has trademarked ‘Hangar 13’ in the US for use with “computer and video game programs and software” and” downloadable computer and video game programs and software.” As pointed out by Gematsu, there was a piece of DLC for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified called Hangar 6 R&D, but they note there wasn’t a trademark filed for it. We’ll just have to wait and see if this is something new, or maybe something for The Bureau. [Source 1, 2]
  • Just a couple days after releasing, there’s already been nearly 3 million deaths from PS3 owners of Dark Souls 2 (who are connected to the internet) and over 1.3 million deaths for Xbox 360 owners of the game. [Via, Source]
  • Because “the transition to next-generation console gaming continues to impact our financial performance,” Majesco has reported a Q1 2014 net revenue of $21.9 million, down from $23.5 million during the same period in 2013. CEO Jesse Sutton added, “We will build our 2014 release slate with a judicious use of resources and, even though we anticipate a loss for the full fiscal year, we are confident that we have the resources necessary to fund our operations and invest for future growth.” [Via, Source]

  • Staying with The Stick of Truth, Obsidian revealed that a patch for the PS3 version of the game is “in test currently at [Ubisoft] and will go to Sony after approved. No ETA yet unfortunately though.” [Twitter]
  • To go along with update 1.3 for The Playroom on PS4, you can now download the Ninja Bots DLC free from the PlayStation Store. [Source]

  • Housemarque recently said, “We’ll have some really exciting news for Resogun soon enough. Can’t wait to talk about them more.” Since they promised DLC for the game in the past, I think it’s safe to assume it will be DLC. [Twitter]
