The Morning Papers

Good morning!

This is going to be a big week as Evolve and the New 3DS prepare to launch, and we've got some interesting news to kick things off. Six million players tried out the Battlefield Hardline beta -- which we reckoned was 'not much cop' -- while Microsoft has teased Xbox One screenshot functionality and Evolve will require a hefty day one patch.

There's also an interesting legal precedent as US courts hand a Las Vegas gamer a five-year stretch for inciting a 'SWATting' attack against a streamer by falsely alleging that a murder had taken place. It's a tough sentence, but a fair one in our view, since SWAT teams don't mess about and the incident could have gotten seriously dangerous. Thankfully no-one was hurt and this should send a clear message to anyone thinking of doing the same.

In Case You Missed It...
