Sony announces today that the PS4 has sold over 5.3 million units worldwide. This is good to hear, as the system has seen a pretty heavy issue with being out of stock.

Irrational Games is restructuring itself, resulting in some massive layoffs. Announced by Ken Levine, co-founder of the developer, the studio will be moving in a different direction, focusing on smaller, more narrative driven experiences. In order to achieve this goal, the studio will be letting go of almost everyone there, except for a small few, officially shutting down Irrational Games as we know it. My wishes go out to all whom lost employment. Best of luck.
