Sony will release their latest video game console, PlayStation 4, on Nov. 15. Many excited gamers have already pre-ordered the system, which was originally supposed to come bundled with Watch Dog andDriveClub. When these games’ release date was delayed, Target canceled all pre-orders on the PS4. Now, however, Target has changed its mind.

DriveClub is the second PS4 game to be delayed in less than a week, after it was announced that Watch Dogs would no longer be part of the launch lineup.

“The release date for the video games Watch DogsDriveClubThe Order: 1886, and inFamous: Second Son has been delayed. As a result, Target cancelled pre-orders for Sony Playstation 4 consoles that were going to be bundled with these titles,” Target said.

The announcement was especially confusing because neither the release of Infamous: Second Son nor The Order: 1886 has been delayed. In fact, according to Kotaku, Infamous: Second Son is not to be released until 2014 and The Order: 1886 never received an official release date. Still, it appeared that Target planned to include these games with the PS4.

“With the news that Ubisoft has delayed the release of the highly-anticipated title Watch Dogs until next year, GameStop is contacting customers who had reserved PlayStation 4 and Xbox One bundles featuring the game,” GameStop said in a statement to Polygon. “Customers can elect to keep their current bundle orders and their consoles will ship as scheduled with the game shipping separately once it is available, or customers can choose another bundle to replace their current order. Customers should also note that there may be a difference in the price if selecting another bundle and that all reserved orders will be charged upon shipment.”

The PS4 will be available in stores in North America for $399.99 on Nov. 15.

Red Dead Redemption’s long-rumoured follow-up is happening, Rockstar has confirmed in a new instalment of the studio’s ‘Asked and Asnwered’ blog.

Rockstar received the question, “All I wanna know is is there goin to be a new Red Dead game any time soon?” over Facebook.

The studio responded with, “We love Red Dead too – and are thrilled that so many of you loved John Marston’s tale and are excited for more epic Western action.”

“As we mentioned in our last set of Asked & Answereds to similar questions about the future of other game franchises like Bully and L.A. Noire, we don’t always rush to make sequels but that does not mean that we won’t get to them eventually.”

“Stay tuned for further announcements about the future of the Red Dead series.”

Back in April, NowGamer reported accounts from a ‘Rockstar Insider’ that the new Red Dead game will be called Red Dead Rebellion. Check out the details here.

Xbox 720 release date, news and rumours

While gossip surrounding Microsoft’s next Xbox console has been churning around inside the rumour mill for a good few years now, there’s no doubt that we’re getting closer to learning some cold, hard facts.

We fully expect the Xbox 720 – if it is indeed to be called that – to launch in time for Christmas 2013. If it doesn’t we’ll be absolutely flabbergasted. And with the increasing frequency of new rumours, reports and leaks, an official reveal from Microsoft cannot be too far away.

So what can we expect from the Xbox 720 when it is finally revealed by Microsoft, and when will it finally hit the shelves?

Xbox 720 specs

The next Xbox is to be as popular and last as long as the Xbox 360 – without the frankly appalling hardware failures which blighted its early days – it’s going to need some reliable and powerful components.
