Every little piece of information we learn about video games can't be classified as a story in itself. While we'd love to talk more about everything, the fact is that resources don't permit us to discuss titles beyond ones we feel will resonate with our readers. Keeping that in mind, the stories still deserve attention so we've invented the daily briefing to get you up to speed.
The BioShock movie has been cancelled a few days before the start of filming.
Ghost Recon Wildlands
Today, in collaboration with Amazon Prime Video and social video platform Twitch, Ubisoft debuted the live-action promotional video Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel on the Ubisoft Twitch channel. Now available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, War Within the Cartel is promotional live-action content that introduces the Santa Blanca cartel and their plans to turn Bolivia into a narco-state.

Today Microsoft announced a $50 price cut on all Xbox One and Xbox One S systems, bringing the price of the console down to $250 to start. This is a temporary price cut good until February 25. Sony has a similar promotion so I imagine it's to counter that.
Our score: /10
