The gaming industry has been pretty quiet this week with not much going on. SIP, however, has had a lot going on this week. We’ve had new milestone, a new team member, a contest winner and more.
You may now be up-to-date.
Bungie / 343 / Halo
|The official release date for Destiny has been announced. Bungie’s Destiny will be launching on September 9th, 2014. The beta for Destiny, first on PlayStation 3 and 4 consoles, will be launching in the summer of 2014. This clearly shows that both the game and beta have been delayed from Spring, but a polished and delayed game is better than an extremely buggy game at the original deadline.|
Other Gaming News

|Microsoft’s program to attract Indie developers to the Xbox One, ID@Xbox, has revealed some of the studios that have signed up to self-publish their games. Some of them you may recognize like Slightly Mad Studios with their work on the Need for Speed: Shift series, Double Fine which made several Xbox arcade games and Brütal Legend. Surprisingly, Crytek is included in the list. With their experience making games like Crysis, Far Cry, and the more recent Ryse: Son of Rome, we can expect big things from them. While ID@Xbox is still getting into shape the Indie side of Xbox One looks like it will be just fine for the future.|
