Square Enix has announced a new time for its E3 media briefing, which was originally scheduled to take place at 9am PT on June 16.
The Japanese publisher has opted to delay the media briefing by one hour, a move that is undoubtedly in response to Nintendo's recent announcement that its Digital Event would be held at the very same time.

A British cat has claimed the Guiness World Record for having the loudest purr for a domestic cat.
At 67.8 decibels (dB), Merlin the cat's purr is about as loud as a shower or an air conditioner. For comparison, the Herald Express claims 100 dB is about as loud as a high-revving motorcycle.
Merlin's record just barely edged out the previous world record holder Smoky, whose purr is recorded at 67.68 dB.

This morning, we learned that Larian Studios is bringing Divinity: Original Sin to consoles this year. Super exciting...except that if you only play console games you might not know what Divinity: Original Sin is, or why, if you're an RPG fan, you should be very, very excited about it. So we've decided to repost this awesome developer commentary we did with the developers when they came by our office last year before their game came out. Hopefully, that answers some of your questions, but if you want to know more, read our Divinity: Original Sin review.
Candy Crush Saga is coming to Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system.
Don't worry – King's insanely popular Match-3 game isn't replacing desktop classics like Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Hearts.
The game will be automatically installed for users who download or upgrade to Windows 10 during "periods of time following the game launch," according to Xbox Wire. It includes cross-play functionality for Windows Phone, iOS, and Android versions of Candy Crush Saga.
Microsoft says more King games are coming to Windows 10 as well.
No release date is set for Microsoft's OS yet, but we do have details on the seven versions of Windows 10.
The developer of mobile game sensation Candy Crush Saga saw a fall in shares as low as 14 percent following the report of "softer" revenue expectations in the current financial quarter.
Their expectations are lower than is normal for King, with an expected earnings of $490 mil to $520 mil. Despite the drop in earnings, they remain positive and expect to see a surge when Candy Crush Saga releases on Windows 10 and new games launch in the second half of 2015.
Candy Crush first released as a Facebook game in 2012, then later was made available on mobile devices. It has been so successful that the founders were declared more rich than the creators of Grand Theft Auto.
The new Mortal Kombat X patch has rolled out on PlayStation 4, bringing with it a ton of gameplay tweaks, character-specific adjustments, and a Klassic Reptile costume.
Last month, Ed Boon promised free Mortal Kombat X skins with each DLC patch and so far the game's kept it up.
The Klassic Reptile skin introduced in this most recent patch doesn't make a return to the character's human-like form, but the green costume is at least familiar.
Check out the image below.
In the new movie Spy, Allison Janney's CIA director tells her top agent, played by Jason Statham, that a Face-Off Machine doesn't exist. Well, that's about to change, because 20th Century Fox has snagged the domain for FaceOffMachine.com, where you can now download a 3D file of Statham's face and -- if you have access to a 3D printer -- literally print out a new face! (Click either one the images below to get started.)
Star Wars: Lords of the Sith follows Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine as they assault the Twi’lek homeworld of Ryloth, where a violent rebellion is ready and waiting for their arrival. It’s a strong Star Wars story, and it’s full of truly excellent, memorable moments -- and, surprisingly, not all of them have to do with the titular Sith lords.
Cham Syndulla, the Twi’lek leader we last saw in Season 1 of The Clone Wars, and father of Star Wars: Rebels' Hera Syndulla, takes center stage as the leader of the Free Ryloth Movement. He and his growing rebellion have some spectacular scenes.
The Mindy Project is officially the latest canceled TV series to be saved by a streaming service, as Hulu have announced they have picked up the series. Hulu revealed that they have ordered Season 4 of the Mindy Kaling comedy, comprised of 26 episodes in total.
FOX cancelled The Mindy Project a few weeks ago, but news broke simultaneously that Hulu was in talks to pick up the series, where episodes of the first three seasons have been heavily viewed.
Said creator and star Mindy Kaling, in a statement, "I am thrilled The Mindy Project has found a new home on Hulu, where so many of our fans are already watching the show. It's such an exciting place to be."
Rock Band 4 developer Harmonix has revealed to IGN the first six songs confirmed to be included with the upcoming new-gen music-game sequel, due this fall. The songs are:
DC Comics is doing another month of Bombshell variant covers this August, taking villains and heroes and re-imagining them in the style of WWII-ear pin-up posters. They've all featured women so far, so that's why we're jazzed to show you the Bombshell variant for Green Lantern Hal Jordan, along with ones featuring Harley Quinn, Cheetah, and the Ravager.
Note: Full spoilers for The Vampire Diaries season finale follow.
Well there you have it. After six seasons, Nina Dobrev exited The Vampire Diaries on Thursday night with a season finale that was completely devoted to Elena Gilbert's story, with a few extra twists and turns in between. "I'm Thinking of You All the While" picked up from the harrowing moments last week when, at Jo and Alaric's wedding Kai returned from 1903 to kill his sister and everyone else from his former coven who was at the wedding. Trying to inflict as much pain on Bonnie as possible for banishing him in the first place, he also put a "sleeping spell" on Elena that linked her life with Bonnie's. So long as the witch was alive, a now-human Elena would remain asleep. Of course Kai solidified the magical bond by killing himself (only to be resurrected as a vampire-witch thanks to Lily's blood). Meanwhile, the entire Gemini Coven kicked the bucket in return.
