Tom Clancy has died at the age of 66. Clancy’s publisher, Putnam, confirmed his passing last night, October 1st in a hospital in Baltimore.
The Author of countless books, many of which adapted into films, also prominently endorsed the long running Tom Clancy’s… series of video games published by Ubisoft.
Us at the DLB-Network would like to send our deepest condolences to Clancy’s family. We look forward to Ubisoft and many of Tom’s other partners continuing his unequaled legacy, across various industries.

The Nintendo Wii U will receive a price drop in September, the price will be dropped $50 in the United states. We have no word on other countries but we expect Europe and other regions to follow in the near future.
With this $50 price drop the Wii U Deluxe edition will now be priced at $299, the price drop will become available in america on September 20th, let’s hope this improves the Wii U sales and the devices starts arriving in households this christmas.

Okay, first of all I would like to apologize for the guest speaker himself! Unfortunately, due to unforeseen events (which I’m sure you can understand we’re out of my control), Tony Mott couldn’t make the lecture, he was replaced by the next best thing:
The Features Editor, Jason Killingsworth.
With the bad news out the way (although that’s a little disrespectful!), both questions got answered, so lets dig in.
Following price cuts in recent weeks from UK grocery store ASDA (parent: Walmart) and Shop.To, Amazon has followed suit cutting the Wii U’s price by £50; which is about $75. The console now sells below the £200 price mark.
For those who aren’t strong with the exchange rates, £200 in the UK is the US’ killer $300 mark.
But is this a sign for things to come for the rest of the world? It’s well documented Nintendo’s 8th generation console is struggling.

In this video, DLB and his guest, Kyle “US_ARMY”, discuss what they think will happen next… next generation, even if consoles will even exist after next-generation, will the console companies move to service companies like OnLive? See what the guys think in their latest video.
In the latest Nintendo Direct video, Iwata has a lot of interesting information regarding the future of Wii U, including many updates and future plans for the console along with the announcements of several games too, and much more. This is definitely a good watch, check it out.
