Join gaming leaders, alongside GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming, for their 2nd Annual GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit | GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 this upcoming January 25-27, 2022. Learn more about the event. 


If you follow VentureBeat but don’t regularly check our GamesBeat site, here’s a list of the best video game stories we ran over the last seven days that you may have missed.

This week, Activision unveiled several new features in Call of Duty: Ghosts (including female soldiers in multiplayer), Nintendo dominates console sales with the Nintendo 3DS, and Microsoft announces that the Xbox One will still function without the Kinect plugged in, which is another reversal from the company’s Electronic Entertainment Expo announcement.

You’ll also found reviews for Saints Row IV, Europa Universalis IV, Divinity: Dragon Commander, and Plants vs Zombies 2.
