It might not have been the most surprising trailer at E3 2015, but the stage demo for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End certainly knew how to get our adrenaline pumping. There were firefights and daring escapes and car crashes, but the trailer was abruptly cut off just moments before Nathan Drake slammed into the side of a bridge.
After putting diehard fans into cardiac arrest during its E3 2015 press conference, Sony couldn’t possibly surprise anyone with its Instant Game Collection for July 2015. But even with expectations at an all time high, the company seems to have delivered a pretty solid offering, highlighted by a game that I haven’t stopped talking about since May.
With all the exciting news coming out of Los Angeles during E3 last week, you might be one of the many gamers who decided it was finally time to rush out and buy a PlayStation 4. But now that’s you’ve spent a few hundred dollars on the console, what are you supposed to play? It might be a good idea to start in the Free-to-Play section of the PlayStation Store, which got a huge boost this week. More →
Just as quickly as it arrived, E3 2015 has packed its bags and ditched the Los Angeles Convention Center once again, leaving in its wake enough excitement to fill up a calendar year. Microsoft held the most consistently entertaining conference I’ve ever attended, Sony tried to make all of our dreams come true and Nintendo wound up apologizing for its lineup.
But none of that matters — I know that there’s only one thing you care about: Who won E3?
Microsoft had a heck of an E3 this year. From the first announcement to the last demonstration, the company’s E3 press conference was a fan-favorite in 2015. And the company’s Minecraft demo on HoloLens was absolutely mind-blowing. It was a much-needed win for Microsoft, which has been lagging behind Sony since their current-generation video game consoles first launched ahead of the holidays in 2013.
The first announcement Microsoft made during its E3 event was Xbox One backwards compatibility, which will allow Xbox One owners to play many of their old Xbox 360 games on their new consoles. PS4 owners have been wondering whether or not the same feature would be added to the PlayStation 4, and now they finally have their answer. More →
Now that we’ve all come to terms with the fact that The Last Guardian exists, it’s time to figure out what exactly the game is. We know it’s being made by the same team that brought us Shadow of the Colossus and Ico, we know that it stars a young boy and an unrecognizable creature and we know it’s coming to the PS4 in 2016.
I’m here to tell you what else I learned behind closed doors.
Microsoft had some amazing announcements at E3 2015 on Monday, including hot new games coming to the Xbox One, but that doesn’t mean Sony wasn’t ready to step up to the plate. The company’s partners are also going to give PlayStation 4 owners some awesome new titles in the coming months, and below you can see all the new PS4 trailers that Sony showed on stage during the keynote.

Press day at the annual E3 video game conference is behind us and the show itself has officially begun. Day -1 was action packed, to say the least, and there were several big events we covered live. Among them were the two biggest ones of the year: Microsoft and Sony.
Microsoft’s event still has gamers buzzing, and the star of the show was definitely a mind-blowing preview of Minecraft for the HoloLens. Could Sony possibly top that awesome demo? No… but Sony company had plenty of big announcements of its own in store for us during last night’s press conference — here are the five most important ones. More →
We’re in the home stretch of E3 2015 press conferences now. After watching Microsoft, EA and Ubisoft unveil enough games to tide us over until 2017, it’s time for Sony to push us over the edge. This will be the last conference of the night, so you know the PlayStation team has to have some incredible reveals in store to keep us awake after a long day of gaming nirvana.
Many of the PlayStation brand’s most iconic mascots have fallen by the wayside over the past few years. Crash, Jak, Daxter, Sly, Spyro — they may not be dead, but they certainly aren’t as prevalent as they were a decade ago. But amid the rubble, one furry hero and his robot pal have beaten the odds: Ratchet & Clank will return in 2016. More →
Although the show floor won’t open until next Tuesday at noon, the E3 2015 festivities officially kick off in less than a week with the revival of the Nintendo World Championships and Bethesda’s first ever press conference on Sunday, June 14th. In order to prepare for the biggest gaming event of the year, we’ve decided to round up the 10 games that have us most excited about the latter half of 2015 and beyond. More →
