Steam is holding a Warner Bros Games weekend; but more importantly, it is also the first weekend sale for the platform in RM.

Those with access to the PlayStation Network should log in and take a look at the Capcom catalogue. Prices have been discounted by up to 75% on some titles, ranging from the popular Street Fighter series to the horror based Resident Evil franchise.

A interesting piece of malware has been discovered to be infesting Twitch chatrooms.

A new free-to-play version of Counter-Strike will be entering an open beta phase later this month.

Sony will allow Xperia Z3 users to stream gameplay from their PlayStation 4 right to the mobile device. Which is a method of integrating the second screen concept into gaming in a way that actually makes sense. Users will still have to be on the same WiFi network as their PS4, but it does prevent people from fighting over the TV.
