The newest console war is really taking off now. Microsoft has shipped 5 million Xbox Ones to stores, but Sony has sold 7 million PlayStation 4s. Still, the best-selling game of March was an Xbox One exclusive, Titanfall.

Elsewhere in the gaming world, Blizzard’s popular free-to-play card game, Hearthstone, came out for the iPad, and Zynga released a mobile version of FarmVille 2.

You’ll find all of that and more in our weekly collection of GamesBeat stories.
