Geek Links of the Week

The next campaign to protect the internet will likely be focused on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Its intellectual property agreement is going to tighten up intellectual property laws to US levels. [Open Media]

Polygon created another controversy over the content of a game that the reviewer felt compelled to focus on over every other aspect of a game. The problem is that many reviewers are using reviews as makeshift opinion columns and are harming consumers and developers by standing on their soapbox. [DualShockers]

Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One is going to take up 45 GB on the Blu-Ray disc and require an additional 20 GB update download on release day. Yes, that’s a 65 GB game collection. Hope you weren’t planning to download this game. [Xbox Wire]

The PlayStation TV hit North America this week. It’s not exactly going over too well. [Gizmodo]
