Irrational Games’ sudden and confusing exit from triple-A development was the most shocking story of the week, but GamesBeat had plenty of other news, previews, reviews, and more to offer.

For instance, Rock Band developer Harmonix announced that it’s making a music-based shooter, we reviewed the new Donkey Kong Country game, and the PlayStation 4 sold more than 5.3 million units worldwide. You can find all of that and more in this week’s roundup.
