You Can’t Use the Word ‘Candy’ Anymore or You Get Sued (Soon)

King Capitalizes on Tradmarking the word CandyKing, the makers of the undeniably popular mobile platform game Candy Crush Saga has attempted to trademark the word ‘Candy’ in efforts to make sure its cult remains alive and breathing.

The trademark of the word ‘candy’ was filed by King.com Ltd. in February 2013 and was approved on January 15th, 2014 for publication. For the purpose of branding, the ‘candy’ trademark would restrict ‘candy’ as a title, or part of a title, in video games, electronics, accessories to everything else including but not limited to: “…bath robes, bathing caps, bathing suits…pajamas, pants, paper hats for use as clothing, sandals…“, not even Amusement Parks are safe!

ON BEHALF OF THE KING.com Ltd., Apple has begun to inform publishers regarding the use of the word “Candy” in their title.

[Rumor] Leaked WiiU 2 Spec’s Unveiled

Leaked Wii U 2 NintendoSome Leaked WiiU 2 Spec’s have been published and we’re not going to believe a single lick of this information… And if any of this is true, we’re going to go ahead and laugh at those who went out of their way to purchase the failing WiiU.  This is pretty harsh coming from us good guys who like to give everyone their chances… but this seems to be a nice kick in the crotch. It reminds me of a time when the Griffin Family purchased their HDTV only to find out on the news that their new TV is now Obsolete!

The details originate from an anonymous source which had been an acquaintance of an individual over at gameinrealm.com, then picked up by gamepur.com which is notorious for bogus news (that has gotten us in trouble before while as we steal content from a number of sources).

While Nintendo may indeed by working on new “Next-Next-Gen” consoles, we’re going to highly discredit the information we’re about to post below:

Borderlands 2 Coming to PSVita in March 2014

It looks like we’ll be seeing Borderlands 2 Coming to the PSVita in March… or sometime within the near future according to what we’d like to call “leaked marketing”.  It’s a tactic we’ve seen by numerous companies to create free hype over a product via social media.  This time, 2K Games International’s twitter page “accidentally” exposed the news in a post that was quickly deleted. (Newegg had also revealed a Vita launch which was also taken offline in December 2013)

The tweet was captured by Joystiq:Borderlands to Vita

The folks over at Gearbox Software have stated in the past that they wished to move over to the handheld console in the past and we believe this is the big push they were aiming for.

China Lifts Ban on Consoles. Guidelines Soon to Follow

China Lifts BanChina Lifts Ban… A week ago, the Chinese government lifts the ban on the sale of consoles in China. The 14-year-old ban was introduced in 2000 when the Chinese government began to fear the rise of technology and how the youth is affected by it. However, the lift is only temporary and Chinese officials did not give an estimate as to when the ban will be imposed. That is not to say that lifting the ban gives leeway to console makers as it does have a limitation; the console must be manufactured on the free trade zone in Shanghai.
