Persona 4 Arena will apparently be released in Europe.
“As promised here’s an update on our current progress with Persona 4 Arena.
We have now taken delivery of the PS3 EU version of Persona 4 Arena, and we are expecting the Xbox version soon.
Once we have both, the next step will be to submit P4A to Sony and Microsoft. At this stage, we’ll be able to estimate a likely release window for you guys – and once it’s been approved by both platform holders, we’ll be able to give you a realistic street date.
We will, of course, let you know what stage we are in this process so you can have a clearer idea of when the release date is likely to be.
Again, thank you for your patience… “
So far we no nothing about a potential release date.

So, where will you be pre-ordering the game from?
The studio boss, Tom Crago, revealed this exciting news for Eurogamer. Apparently one of the IPs are their own, and the other one “based on another big franchise that will come out in 2013. It’s a big title and you will have heard of it.”
Let’s play the guessing game. Which game do you think it is?
Square Enix Europe has began streaming the English launch trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] game yesterday.
The English demo for the game is currently available for download on the Nintendo eShop. The game is now available in Europe with it to be released in North America on July 31. The game was previously launched in Japan back in March.
For once, it’s Apple‘s turn to be sued.
Zhizhen Network Technology is suing Apple over an infringement on one of its patent via Cupertino‘s voice-based assistant Siri.
Apparently the patent is of “a type of instant messaging chat bot system”, however, the Chinese equivalent was dubbed Xiaoi Bot. The patent itself was filed back Aug. 13 2004 and approved in 2006. To summarize it, Zhizhen tried to solve this patent thing outside of court, however Apple decided to be all high and haughty and not respond. Additionally, PC Mag reports that Zhizhen is aiming to get more than what Apple paid to Proview, which was a $60 million in settlement.
I must say, with Apple being sued over an iPad name dispute in China and being forced to cough up $60 million and having to pay $96 million in bond, it’s not looking overly bright for them. I don’t know though, is it normal for companies to be sued this much in a short amount of time?
Remember the whole SOPA/CISPA/ACTA thing? Well, the bill almost passed in Europe. However, democracy prevailed and ACTA was literally crushed by the European Parliament. ACTA was rejected in a 478 to 39 vote, meaning that “The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement” won’t be able to pass in its current form. However, Mashable pointed out that if it’s going to pass, it needs to be heavily edited.
“Today’s rejection does not change the fact that the European Commission has committed itself to seeking answers to the questions raised by the European public. The European Commission will continue to seek the legal opinion of the European Court of Justice on whether this agreement harms any of the fundamental rights of European citizens – including freedom of speech,” said EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht.
Regardless of what the future might hold, I must say I’m proud to be European right now.
