Gaming News Round-up: 17th January

News? You want it, we’ve got it!

Here at GameSpew, we’re trying something a little different. Rather than doing separate news articles for a small selection of the headlines, releases and tidbits that we get press releases for every day, we’ve thought: why not just put all the news together? It’s easier to find; it’s unfiltered – we’re not just picking out what we find interesting; and it’s all on one page.

Let us know what you think in the comments below. But here are all the headlines so far today, 17th January. The latest updates will appear at the top of the list.
