Microsoft’s Xbox One console will be region-locked, a company spokesperson has reportedly confirmed with Digital Trends.
“Similar to the movie and music industry, games must meet country-specific regulatory guidelines before they are cleared for sale,” said the Microsoft representative. “We will continue to work with our partners to follow these guidelines with Xbox One.”
It’s a muddy statement made murkier by the fact that region-locking is currently almost non-existent on PS3, a console that answers to the same country-specific regulatory guidelines.
Microsoft has been approached for further comment since, but has left the topic unclarified.
"Regarding region blocking, Microsoft don't have anything further to announce at this stage. We'll have more to share later," a Microsoft spokesperson told Polygon.
We'll update as the story develops.
This is a brave move for Microsoft and will be criticized for this one. Only time will tell how it goes now though.

This story is kind of funny if you think about it, yea the guy bought these up hoping Microsoft would some day want them. The funny part is that they decided after the release to even think about getting this domain. Or did they think of the name the day before! More below.
Microsoft has filed a complaint over XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net in hopes of taking control of the domains.
According to Fusible, Microsoft's dispute is filed with the National Arbitration Forum (case number 1501205, currently listed as “pending” on the NAF database), and the company is seeking to acquire the websites from a single UK resident who owns both. The WHOIS info for both domains suggests that they were registered on December 29, 2011 by a Krasimir Hristov Ivanov who resides in London.
Microsoft previously registered a handful of domain names for rumored Xbox codenames including Xbox 8 and Xbox Fusion. It’s worth noting that Microsoft also does not appear to own the Xbox One Twitter account.

Forza 5 Cover revealed for Xbox one! This looks great and will be interesting to see this in person! Hope more of these are released in the upcoming days!
"Will the next Xbox be sold in Japan?" is a frequently asked question given the 360's enormous failure in the East. It seems that they are still working out details on this launch and are working hard to get some answers about this huge question. They should strive to have bragging rights about being available world wide right?
"I think you'll see some announcements in the not too distant future that I think might delight people," Microsoft's Phil Spencer told IGN. The corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios continued, "To me, heading up studios, it's always been a place where we fine the most creative games in the market." That said, the future of Xbox One and Japan still seems uncertain.
Japan remains "an incredibly rich content development community," Spencer said, "and something we're spending a lot of time with and thinking about -- the Japanese creators, and having them creating content on our box and having that show up to the worldwide audience." There have been some debate about if Xbox games produced in Japan would thrive and be worth seeking the market. Only time will tell and when E3 comes around we will see how interested everyone is in the games that are set to come out with this console.

Square-Enix president and CEO Mike Fischer has left the Japanese company. After nearly three years with the developer/publisher, Fischer departed for a vice president position at Amazon Japan's Digital Music and Video division.
Following the company's recent revision of its business, president Yoichi Wada stepped down in April. Fischer told Polygon he departed the company amicably.
Fischer previously worked with Microsoft, SEGA, and Namco. What could this mean for the company in the future. Only time will tell!
Housemarque has announced it's creating a spiritual successor to the Super Stardust franchise, exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
The developer, which has also created titles like Dead Nation and Outland, revealed that while the game didn't have a title as yet, it'd be available exclusively on Sony's next-gen console.
CEO Ilari Kuittinen said, "We are super excited to be working on Sony’s next-gen hardware. The platform’s performances are enabling us to do things that wouldn’t be possible otherwise and we truly believe that better technology can lead to better gameplay. The more tools and resources we have at our disposal, the better.
"Think of Super Stardust HD: at the time, PlayStation 3 gave us the opportunity to populate the game with thousands of interactive objects and implement the game’s famous ‘spherical gameplay’. Today, we can take advantage of the architecture of PlayStation 4 to create incredible visuals with direct impact on the way the new game feels."
The company has also announced its working on a second project, again exclusively for the PS4, No information was released about what the title was or any pictures on either games. More to follow soon I would imagine.

Independent developers wishing to get games on Xbox One's Xbox Live Arcade will still be unable to self-publish, it has been announced.
As it currently stands, indie devs must get a publishing deal with either Microsoft Games Studios or a third-party publisher to get their games on XBLA. The exception to this is titles that opt to release on Xbox Live Indie Games, though this has more financial drawbacks for developers than the more lucrative Arcade section.
There was some speculation following Sony's commitment to independent developers with the PS4 that Microsoft would make things easier for everyone to get games on its console, but it seems this won't be the case.
The company's general manager of Redmond Game Studios and Platforms Matt Booty told Shacknews, "We intend to continue to court developers in the ways that we have."
He did suggest this could change in the future though, adding, "I would also expect that for this new generation, that we're going to continue to explore new business models and new ways of surfacing content. But Microsoft Studios is a publisher that works with a wide range of partners, as do a lot of other people, to bring digital content to the box."
Both Sony and Nintendo allow indie devs to self-publish through PSN and eShop, respectively.
This may be some sad news for some developers. Hope they work this out in your favor.
Here is the hardware portion of the Xbox reveal! They showed the technology behind the great console that they built! Can't wait for some more video games to be announced with this Next-Gen gaming console.

Ryse, the first-person Roman combat game announced back in 2010, is now being developed exclusively for Xbox One.
A posting on the company's site doesn't reveal much, other than that it'll have "controller-based gameplay enhanced by Kinect." There's also a countdown clock promising we'll find out more in 19 days at E3.
Ryse was first teased as Codename: Kingdoms at E3 2010 before getting an official reveal a year later. Mutterings started surfacing that the game had been redesigned as a next-gen title in late 2011 based on the LinkedIn resume of a Crytek designer.
Earlier this month, we heard reports that the game had been re-worked into a next-generation game "designed to be Microsoft's new Gears of War / Halo mega launch title." Given this announcement, it seems that these may have been accurate.
Last night Microsoft announced that 15 exclusives would be coming to the Xbox One in the first year, of which eight would be new franchises. Taking this news with the announcement of Quantum Break, it seems we now know two of the new IPs.

Microsoft has announced many of the specs for the Xbox One at the company's "Xbox Reveal" event, which began at 1 p.m. EDT today. The new Xbox One features an 8-core processor, 8 GB of system memory or RAM, a 500 GB hard drive, 802.11N wi-fi, HDMI, and USB 3.0.
Microsoft said the Xbox One features 5 billion transistors and three operating systems -- one for games (Xbox One), the second is the Windows kernel, the third connects the two for quick system switching and multitasking. The system will have several power states to save energy costs. It will also be nearly silent, according to Microsoft.
The new Xbox One controller has a newly designed D-Pad as well as several other new features. The screenshot above shows two buttons replacing the Xbox Home button, one appears to be for window-switching, and the other appears to have a list view or right-click function.
Microsoft said that the Xbox One Kinect sensor will be updated, and will capture content at 1080p. The Xbox One has not been given a specific release date, but will be released later this year, Microsoft announced.

This will be interesting to see what people say about this one. Twitter can be an interesting place to voice your opinions, and EA’s Bob Summerwill – a Senior Software Engineer and Architect – has sounded-off there with his thoughts about Nintendo’s struggling Wii U console. His comments, of course, follow EA's admission that it has no Wii U games in development.
Here is the tweets that he wrote below about the company.
EA has announced an Anniversary Edition of Madden NFL 25. Available for $99.99, the Anniversary Edition will offer offers for DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket, including “a unique code to access the 2013 regular season (17 weeks) trial of NFL Sunday Ticket on computers, tablets, and mobile devices.”
The Anniversary Edition will offer an exclusive Madden Ultimate Team pack for all 17 weeks of the regular season and will also allow fans who aren’t DirecTV subscribers to get $10 off their first month of service and a full year of NFL Sunday Ticket MAX for free. Those who already subscribe will receive access to NFL Sunday Ticket on computers and mobile devices. According to EA, the full package offers “over $400 in value.”
“We’re delighted to offer our fans this special edition to celebrate the franchise they helped build over the last 25 years,” said senior EA Sports marketing director Anthony Stevenson. “Pairing the ultimate football video game experience with the ultimate viewing experience in DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket will deliver incredible value and excitement all season long.”
The Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition will be available exclusively at Amazon, and pre-orders are available now.
Madden NFL 25 will launch on Xbox 360 on and PlayStation 3 on August 27th 2013. This is great news for all you sports fans that want to save some money on the ticket!
Some exciting new releases from Nintendo today as they try to come out with new content for their Wii! Nintendo has announced that New Super Luigi U, the extensive DLC spin-off from New Super Mario Bros. U, will be available digitally from June 20.
Additionally, the game will be getting a boxed retail release on July 26 in Europe and August 28 in North America. If you opt for the digital version, you'll need to own New Super Mario Bros. U, If you don't own the other you should grab the disk!
The new character, Nabbit, plays a little differently to the others. Whilst he won't be able to get power-ups, he also won't be able to be hurt by damage, so presumably functions as an entry level character for younger players or those unfamiliar with the game.
For those unaware, New Super Luigi U is based on New Super Mario Bros. U but changes the courses completely for the game and places the emphasis firmly on playing through as Luigi. Enjoy this will be funny to see where it goes! Remember to visit GameNTrade for all your gaming needs! We have old retro gaming consoles also!
Nintendo has announced a new Mario & Sonic: Olympic Winter Games title will be released to tie into the upcoming Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
Set in the resort town in Southern Russia, the graphics will apparently be enhanced from previous games and will include snow and ice effects. It'll also support Wii Remote Plus.
Returning events from the previous games include skiing and snowboarding, while new events like figure skating pairs and snowboard slope style will also be included. The GamePad will be integrated in some games like curling, where you'll have to draw a line to your target.
There'll also be a "green events" mode, where stages built in the worlds of Sonic and Mario will be playable, allowing you to perform dynamic moves not possible in real life. There'll also be a relay type event where you snowboard, then ski and finally bobsleigh.
No release date was announced, but with the Winter Olympics not taking place until next year, we assume it won't be out until then.

Google expects users to activate about 900 million Android devices this year, more than doubling the number activated in 2012, an executive said Wednesday.
Sundar Pichai, head of Google's Android and Chrome operations, said at the company's developers conference that users activated 400 million Android devices in 2012 and 100 million in 2011.
"The momentum has been breathtaking since then," Pichai said.
And Hugo Barra, vice president of product management, said Google Play has just passed 48 billion app installations, with 2.5 billion installations in the last month alone.
Google is hosting Google I/O, its annual developers conference, Wednesday in San Francisco. The online giant has been expected to announce a host of new products and provide more details about other recently announced technology such as Google Glass.
Google's Android software has become the most-used mobile operating system in the world. Canalys last week said Android ran about 60 percent of all smart devices -- phones, tablets, and notebooks -- shipped in the first quarter, while iOS came in second with 19 percent share. While Android still lags iOS in tablets, it's starting to pick up steam, much as it did before dominating smartphones.
Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt in April predicted that 1 billion people will be using Android smartphones within the next six to nine months. He also said there will be nearly 2 billion Android phones within a year or two. As of April, there were more than 750 million Android phones in use across 320 carriers and 160 countries, Schmidt said, and there are 1.5 million sales or activations of Android every day.
This is great news and is crazy how large thier network is growing.

Today in London, Nokia announced the Lumia 925, the latest in the Finnish company's line of high-end Windows Phone handsets. Unlike its predecessors, the Lumia 925 utilizes a metal frame — which cuts down the device's weight and thickness — while polycarbonate covers the rear with Gorilla Glass protecting the display.
As usual, Nokia has put a lot of thought into smartphone photography. The new Lumia 925 is equipped with a 8.7-megapixel PureView camera with Optical Image Stabilization and Carl Zeiss optics, and has one more lens than the similarly equipped Lumia 920 and the recently announced Lumia 928. The purpose of the extra lens is to improve picture quality in bright conditions, which should work quite nicely alongside the great low-light performance already present with Nokia's PureView-branded cameras. Interestingly, the Lumia 925 uses a dual-LED flash setup instead of the company's Xenon flash configuration revealed as part of the Lumia 928.
The company has also included its new Smart Camera software that takes a burst of 10 photos in quick succession. Once the images have been processed, users can choose between Best Shot to create a composite image from the collection, Action Shot to display a sequence of shots in a single image, or Motion Focus, which allows the focal point of an image to be altered after the photo is taken.

It's time to forget 4G and LTE: Samsung says that the future cell network we should all be drooling over is the intensely fast 5G network, which Engadget reports can pull down a jaw-dropping 1Gbps.
The prototype demonstration, which was initially covered in YonHapNews, utilized 64 antenna elements to transmit using a 28 Gigahertz waveband. In plain English, that means that the cluster of antennas were able to create a real-time stream of data.
So when can we expect to feel the future? Samsung hopes to roll out the service in 2020, but there's no specifics on where 5G will be showing up.
It will be the fastest thing around and will mean that your phone network will be close to what you can get at your home! It will be great to see when this comes around.
Microsoft has begun building the structure on its Redmond, Washington campus that will house its next-generation Xbox reveal next week.
As seen in photos from Xbox Live’s Major Nelson and Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business chief of staff Aaron Greenberg on Twitter, construction is already underway on a temporary building for the event, which Greenberg refers to as “the house that Xbox built.”
The Xbox Reveal event is set to take place on the campus at 10:00 a.m. Pacific on May 21st, and you’ll be able to watch it live on IGN. Our preshow will begin at 9am, and we’ll be joined by a very special guest: Fable creator and former Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux.
What do you want to see from the Xbox reveal? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to stay up to date with all the latest rumors in our Xbox 720 wiki.
We're just a few short days away from Google's keynote presentation at its annual developers conference, Google I/O, but that hasn't stopped one potential announcement from leaking early. Android Police has uncovered a leaked document that details Google's forthcoming Google Play Games software, a gaming platform comparable to iOS' Game Center and Xbox Live, providing multiplayer matchmaking, leaderboards, achievements, in-game chat tools, and cloud game saving services. The report aligns with prior reports, including mentions of the service in Google's MyGlass app last month.
While the company has yet to confirm or deny the rumors, Google Play Games would give Android-based gaming a long overdue leg up. Until now, the onus has been on game developers and publishers to build multiplayer and cloud saving tools of their own, fragmenting gaming experiences for players and costly for smaller games companies.
Android boss Sundar Pichai has tempered expectations for his presentation this week at Google I/O, telling Wired that the company will focus primarily on new tools for developers instead of new hardware and software platforms. Last year, Google introduced the Nexus 7 and Nexus Q, as well as the latest version of Android, 4.1 Jellybean.
Google I/O is set to begin this Wednesday, May 15th, at 9am PST. Be sure to stay tuned to IGN for all of the news from the event.
This is exciting news! It will be nice to see where they go with this Thanks guys!
Executive producer Casey Hudson teases it would be "cool to do something completely unrelated to the larger storyline."
BioWare has offered a new tease concerning possible spin-offs to the Mass Effect series. Executive producer Casey Hudson, who is leading development on the next Mass Effect, told OXM it would be "cool" for an upcoming game to tell an entirely new story, separate from the main arc.
"There's so much that could be told in the Mass Effect universe," Hudson said. "It'd be cool to do something completely unrelated to the larger storyline, like a story about a private investigator on the Citadel. Or maybe something detailing Garrus' time in C-Sec."
BioWare announced the next Mass Effect game last September. It will not feature Commander Shepard, as his story came to a close in last year's Mass Effect 3. The untitled game will run on the Frostbite 3 engine and according to Hudson, will be "fresh and new."
In addition to a new Mass Effect, BioWare is building an all-new IP and continues to work with Legendary Pictures on an upcoming Mass Effect film.
I figured I would pass on this great deal to you! They have Hitman Absolution for $4.99 for the standard and $8.99 for Pro. This is an amazing deal for this great game, if you are a fan of the Hitman series you will love this game. This is the first time that I have seen a deal this cheap on the game, it is worth getting if you haven't got to play it yet!

Director Wants Series of Independence Day Films
Speaking at the LA Times Hero Complex Film Festival, and reported by /Film – Emmerich revealed that he and co-writer Dean Devlin were creating a large mythology for the tentatively titled ID Forever - Parts One and Two.
“That’s what we talked about a lot,” he explained. “The mythology of why did the aliens come in the first place, what is the bigger story of this whole thing. And we talked a lot about swarm intelligence. And [the humans] are individual intelligence. Even though we kill each other and have wars against each other, we have something special. We have this domino human spirit to believe in good and overcoming enemies.
“It’s a little bit about that, and when you get a bigger mythology going, I think you have the chance to do not only one or to or three, but you can create a series, and that’s what we want to do.”
Emmerich also confirmed that there would be a place for star Jeff Goldblum in their proposed sequels.
The full piece is over at /Film, while the L.A. Times also have their own report. And for our previous report on the status of the sequels, check out the video below.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Gunmen opened fire as dozens of people marched in a Mother's Day second-line parade in New Orleans on Sunday, wounding at least 12 people, police said.
Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas told reporters that a 10-year-old girl grazed by a bullet was among those wounded in the shooting around 2 p.m. She was in good condition. He said three or four people were in surgery but their conditions weren't known. No deaths were reported.Serpas said that the procession had been accompanied by officers, who saw two or three suspects run from the scene in the city's 7th Ward.
The Times-Picayune reports there were about 200 people at the event when gunfire erupted.
Nobody has been arrested. It's unclear what sparked the gunfire.
Second-line parades are loose processions in which people dance down the street, often following behind a brass band. They can be impromptu or planned and are sometimes described as moving block parties.A social club called The Original Big 7 organized Sunday's event.
Please keep these families in your thoughts as more information comes in about this tragedy.

VALLEY SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have arrested the 12-year-old brother of an 8-year-old girl who was mysteriously stabbed at her home in a rural Northern California community last month.
The boy, who was not identified, will be charged with homicide, Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz told reporters Saturday night.
The April 27 attack on Leila Fowler shook the tightknit Valley Springs community of about 7,400 people and set off a massive manhunt.The boy had told police he found his sister's body and encountered an intruder in the home while their parents were at a Little League game. He described the man as being tall with long gray hair.
Police have said there was no sign of a burglary or robbery at the house.
Investigators did a door-to-door sweep of homes, storage sheds and horse stables scattered across the oak-studded hills foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Divers also searched two nearby reservoirs in search of clues.
As part of the investigation, authorities seized several knives from the home Leila shared with her father, stepmother and siblings to determine if one could have inflicted the fatal wounds. A neighbor who told detectives she saw a man flee the Fowler home later recanted the story and was discredited by police.
Leila's brother was taken into custody at 5:10 p.m. Saturday and police hastily called a news conference to announce the arrest.
"Citizens of Calaveras County, you can sleep a little better tonight," Kuntz said.
Authorities spent over 2,000 hours on the investigation "to provide Leila Fowler's family answers to her death," the sheriff said.Kuntz said the investigation was ongoing. He declined to provide further details.
Several days after the killing, hundreds of people gathered at Jenny Lind Elementary School where Leila was a popular 3rd grader. Her mother, Krystal Walters, tearfully thanked the crowd for the support."I just want to thank the entire community and all of our family and friends for all the overwhelming amount of support you've given our family," Walters said at the time. "It will never be forgotten. Thank you."
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this tragedy who lost so much. Take one day at a time.
Farrah Abraham got into a fight at LAX on Saturday after American Airlines wouldn’t let her go through security without checking an over-sized bag.
The Teen Mom turned adult film star showed up with a large duffel back to bring on her flight, but was told by airline personnel that she needed to check it before she could go through security. That wasn’t a problem for Farrah, who agreed to check the bag, but the tone of the woman who told her struck the Teen Mom the wrong way.
When they showed up, Farrah Abraham tried to explain the LAX fight, but they reportedly didn’t want to hear it and told her to shape up.
It is the latest bizarre incident to hit the news for the reality television star, but may not even by the strangest thing she’s done in the last two days.
Abraham, who last week released a sex tape, told a radio station on Friday that she plans on showing her daughter Sophia the sex tape when the girl becomes a teenager.
“When she’s around 13, 14, gets on her period, kind of wants a boyfriend age. I think then that’s the year to really be like ‘Look Soph, I have this tape,” Abraham said in an interview with King Mac Radio.
Abraham said she doesn’t want to be the type of mother who hides things from her child, and wants to keep an open line of communication with Sophia. Farrah said she has a baby box for her daughter that has every episode of Teen Mom … and the sex tape, too.
She even defended showing strong sexual content to someone so young: “Well you know, kids who are like, 5, when I went back into a public elementary school were talking about sexual things and cussing. So I think we all know that you just need to handle sexual conversations when your child is talking about it. And, so that’s how I will evaluate it.”
After the airport situation was cleared up, Farrah Abraham seemed bitter about the LAX fight still, tweeting, “I thought American Airlines was good apparently they need better customer service, never flying with them again:) #CallThePolice.”
This just goes to show you that the world is judging teen moms and the examples that they set for thier children. She should not be suprised when she gets called out like this. I will happen again and again. Especially with the choices that she made recently.

“Oh and there is an AMAZING big title coming to Vita. I can’t tell you anything about it, except that you are gonna be hooked for hours,” one of his Tweets reads. A clarification later notes that gamers will be hooked “for hours a day” and that it’s “not indie.”
You can see both of Ahmad’s Tweets below.
What he is reffering to would be hard to say at this point. Ahmad’s LinkedIn account notes that he “signed” a slew of indie games for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, including Thomas Was Alone, Hotline Miami, Velocity Ultra, Lone Survivor and “many dozens more.” He also signed “over 30 titles” for PlayStation Mobile, worked with PlayStation Minis and PlayStation Move, and more since he joined Sony.
Ahmad’s pedigree with Sony is independent development, so his claim of this Vita game not being “indie” is surprising. Many people might say that he is talking about Minecraft. Hopefully we will get some more clarification about this.

In the months immediately following Emergence Day, the COG managed to capture some Locust Berserkers. Thinking that a ship at sea would be safe from an underground enemy, the COG decided to transport their prize to a secure research facility via the CNV Pomeroy. Little did they know that the Locust had waterborne beasts from the underground rivers of the Hollow, or that the Locust soldiers would use them so relentlessly to rescue the captured Berserkers. The Pomeroy was corralled into a narrow channel and forced ashore, where the Locust sent a mass of troops to assault and overwhelm the beached vessel.

Well you can forget about seeing the new 300 this August. Warner Bros announced today that it shifted the sequal starring Eva Green and Sullivan Stapleton to March 7th 2014. "Moving 300 Rise of an empire to March 7th continues in the tradition of the frist 300, and kicks off the spring movie-going season in epic style" The film is on track to become all that audiences have come to expect from the franchise," said Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution.
If you remember the detail and visual effects put into the last movie you could probably see why this could be delayed. Simply because it is not ready yet and will likely take more time to produce. This is amazing movie and we can't wait to see what they have in store for us this time.
In other new Warner Bros has also they also shifted the sci-fi action film :"All you need is Kill" is set to June 6th 2014. with select international markets predating the domestic release. This all starts the weekend of May, 30th 2014. The earlier international release was chosen not to interfere with the world cup.
"We have tremendous confidence in All You Need Is Kill and view it as a perfect tent pole for the summer frame, with its combination of great cast, compelling story and tremendous action," said Fellman.
Directed By Doug Liman, All You Need is Kill is based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Starringg Emily Blunt and Bill Paxton. Both Movies will distributed in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX.

Would you Move to Mars?
The opportunity to travel to Mars is certainly a once in a lifetime offer. More so if you're accepted to the Mars One project: the journey is a one-way ticket, requiring you to spend the rest of your life on the Red Planet. But the prospect of permanent colonization millions of miles from earth isn't thwarting the hopeful, reports Time. Almost 80,000 people have applied for the chance in just two weeks.
The ambitious Mars One project plans to establish a human colony on the surface of Mars by 2023. The group began taking applications through its site recently, and expects to receive half a million entrants by the time the application window closes in August. Mars One doesn't require hopeful astronauts to have specialized skills to make a video and apply.
"I love thrills," says one U.S. applicant named Katie. "I've been working at an amusement park for a few years. So, that's pretty much one of my favorite things."
But unlike an amusement park ride, there's no stepping out of the attraction and returning to normal life. According to Mars One, the colony will live in six pod-like structures, building greenhouses to sustain life on a crushingly inhospitable planet.
"Because our astronauts are likely to spend the rest of their lives on Mars it follows that they will probably pass away there as well," reads the Mars One site. "When that day comes there will be a memorial service and cremation ceremony, just like customs on Earth dictate."
The group needs to raise $6 billion to put four people on Mars; definitely a significant hurtle. Mars One is seeking funding through a number of channels, including donations, merchandise, and plans to create a reality show documenting the seven-year training of the astronauts. As of April 29, the project has raised $84,121.

Possible Dead Space Movie?
John Carpenter, the man responsible for such horror benchmarks as The Thing, Halloween and Escape From New York, has expressed his admiration for EA's Dead Space franchise, and even suggested he'd love to bring the series to the big screen.
In an interview with Game Informer (via Videogamer), the 65-year-old director compared the games to the Alien franchise, but with a couple of important differences that would help it appeal to modern audiences.
"You know it's great," he explained. "The first game was more - I guess it was like Alien - but not quite. It was a little different than that.
"I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something's on board. It's just great stuff.
"I would love to make Dead Space [into a film], I'll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made."
Carpenter's long been a vocal supporter of video games as an art form, even going so far as to help direct and narrate aspects of F.E.A.R. 3. Despite this, he's perfectly aware that game/movie tie-ins can often go awry, and even referenced the recent Aliens: Colonial Marines debacle as one that suckered him in.
"It's all about money," he said. "It's not that something is being mistreated, it's just another marketing issue.
"They're trying to get you to buy the game, which I stupidly did," he concluded.
The future of the Dead Space series is a little murky at the moment; rumours started earlier this year that pre-production on Dead Space 4 at Visceral Montreal had been nixed following poor sales of the third game, though EA refuted this.
Do you think this would be a great movie? Would you watch it? More to come as this unfolds.

World Of Warcraft Loss
Activision has confirmed that World of Warcraft has lost 1.3 million subscribers, pushing it down to eight million overall. According to Activision, the lost subscribers were “mainly from the East, but in the West as well.” Despite the decline, World of Warcraft remains "the #1 subscription-based MMORPG in the world."
The news comes as part of Activision Blizzard's first quarter earnings report, which saw the publisher post $456 million in profit on $1.32 billion in revenue for the three-month period ended March 31.
World of Warcraft had as many as 10 million at the time of Mist of Pandaria’s release, and had more than 12 million at its peak in 2010.
Activision noted that the decline raises concerns, "as do continued challenges in the global economy. For these reasons, we remain cautious. However, our focused and disciplined approach to our business has served us well in the past, and through continued investment and careful management of our costs, we expect to continue delivering shareholder value over the long term as we have for the last 20 years.”
