Plus a well-known Japanese producer gets caught in a MAJOR scandal, Microsoft closes a bunch of studios; Sony caves into pressure regarding Helldivers 2  and then pulls a Goofy and "f**king does it again" while wanting to censor *checks notes* an artbook on a limited edition version of game; & more AX announcements.
