    GamesRadar are reporting that Spike Lee is writing / directing the story mode for NBA 2K16.

    They also had this to say, which may mean something to Beltster (being our resident basketball guy).

    "In addition to this rather exciting story mode, the game will feature three separate cover athletes this year - Stephen Curry, James Harden, Anthony Davis - and it'll be available on September 29 across the world. In fact, if you pre-order the game (and you're based in the UK, AND you do so through as-yet-unannounced retailers) you'll get to play the game early on September 25, with all kinds of pre-order goodies too. Cover athletes will be randomly distributed to buyers but... don't worry if you get a copy with Anthony Davis' terrifying mono-brow peeping at you, instead of James Harden's magnificent, lustrous beard. Each copy will have an additional sleeve inside the box, featuring the other two stars. So the choice is yours!"

    Pre-order of the new Steam har4dware is available now. Might get this, maybe. Even if it just means I have a way of paying shitty console ports more easily!

    Are you getting the machine itself, or the link to stream Steam to the TV? Because $500 for one of the machines seems a bit steep, especially if they do the typical thing and instead of accounting for exchange rate, they just put them on sale in the UK at £500 like Sony and Microsoft did.

    If it ends up being £500 here then no, but if it's about 300-350 I'd seriously consider it.

    I guess it depends what the hard drive is like on them as well. The one thing I really dislike about my Xbox One is that the internal Hard Drive is already full so I've had to shell out on a 2tb external to carry on downloading games.

    If consoles do truly want to get rid of physical discs, then that SteamBox is gonna need one hell of an internal HD to keep people happy.

    Depends how quickly they turn into a cloud based solution as well. At least with these chances are expansion is going to be easier, could be they work with NAS in which case you'd have your steam library sat on your network and could play the games from there. the box then literally becomes the player, like any media player is these days talking to a media server/NAS for movies etc.

    If you haven't played it yet and own a PS4, the remastered version of Sleeping Dogs (which includes all of the DLC content) is on sale for £9.49.

    Nightmare in North Point was great and Zodiac Tournament is basically Enter the Dragon.

    I played it, but remaster + expansions make it worth the price. Thanks for the heads up DC.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider has been given a confirmed release on Steam and the PS4, with the latter being Christmas 2016 due to XBox having a 12mth console exclusivity deal.
