  • Don Mattrick takes over as CEO of Zynga, Minecraft update 1.6 FINALLY gets released, Battlefield

  • 3 goes free for PlayStation Plus members, and more! Hey guys, Jess here! And this is

  • the Curse Weekly Roundup.

  • FIrst up, earlier this week Zynga founder Mark Pincus stepped down as CEO in favor of

  • Microsoft's Don Mattrick. Apparently Mattrick was the only person Zynga had considered for

  • the position, and the company hopes that his prior success with Xbox revolutionizing the

  • console game market will be able to improve Zynga's current situation.

  • Next, Mojang has FINALLY released Minecraft update 1.6, aka the horse update. We've been

  • expecting this for MONTHS, with no word on a release date until now. However apparently

  • Minecraft now requires use of Mojang's new launcher - it's in sort of a beta right now,

  • so there might be bugs - but at least there are horses! As well as donkeys, mules, horse

  • armor, leashes for wolves, dogs, and other animals, and a ton of other changes, check

  • out minecraftforum.net for a listing of all the changes!

  • Moving on, Playstation kicked off their Summer Blast 2013 sale, as well as an update to the

  • PS Store. As part of this, Battlefield 3 is free to download for PS Plus members, which

  • is of course a great savings off its normal price of $39.99. THere are also tons of other

  • free games this month for PS Plus subscribers, so we'll post a link to the official playstation

  • blog in the video description so you can read all about that. So...how many of you are gonna

  • subscribe to PlayStation Plus just to pick up free games?

  • And finally, Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One WILL be able to scan QR codes!

  • What started as an image macro turned into the real thing - someone on reddit posted

  • a picture of the kinect, saying "if you're going to require this thing, then at least

  • give us this option to enter our 15 codes that come with new games!" alongside a picture

  • of a QR code. Xbox's corporate VP Marc Whitten responded on TWitter saying "to my reddit

  • friends - yup, this works!" So, another example of Microsoft actually listening ot fans, I

  • guess.

  • That's all for this week - but be sure to subscribe if you haven't already, and give

  • this video a thumbs up for more gaming news! Thanks for watching, enjoy the game.
