PlayStation vs. Xbox: Who won E3 2016?

Every year, Sony and Microsoft attempt to top one another at E3. Every year, the gaming public inevitably begins arguing about who “won” the show, despite the fact that this is an inherently ridiculous exercise. E3 is the biggest marketing push in the industry — if you tuned in for both press conferences, they both won.

But as ridiculous as it may be, it’s still incredibly fun to pick a winner so that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Feel free to disagree wholeheartedly.

The 9 most exciting announcements from Sony’s E3 2016 event

When Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4K wouldn’t be present at E3 2016, it was hard to imagine how the company’s press conference would compete with that of Microsoft, which featured not one, but two new hardware announcements. As it turns out, if you pack enough incredible looking games into your event, fans stop worrying about whether or not they’ll be able to play them in 4K.

We’re still a few days away from the first E3 2016 press conferences, but Ubisoft decided to get a head start with a world premiere live stream for Watch Dogs 2 on Wednesday. Thanks to a leaked advertisement, we already know that the open world sequel will take place in San Francisco and will launch this November, but there’s still plenty for Ubisoft to reveal on the stream today.

‘Watch Dogs 2’ release date, setting confirmed in leaked advertisement

We always knew that a sequel to Watch Dogs was inevitable, but on Monday, Ubisoft finally made it official with the release of a short teaser trailer. Along with the trailer, the studio also announced that it would host a Watch Dogs 2 world premiere event on June 8th at 12PM ET on WatchDogs.com, but didn’t share any further details about the game or when it would launch.

Unfortunately, an advertisement appearing on IGN Tuesday morning spoiled the surprise, revealing the game’s release date and new setting.

Ghost Recon Wildlands New Trailer

‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ trailer shows off the game’s massive open world

‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ trailer shows off the game’s massive open world

Much like the characters featured in the game itself, Ghost Recon Wildlands has been surprisingly hard to find over the past several months. After being unveiled at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference last year, Wildlands immediately went into hiding, with nary a screenshot or a trailer to be found.

In fact, I’d nearly forgotten the game even existed. Until today. More →

PS4 Sales 2016

Things aren’t looking good for the Xbox One as PS4 sales top 40 million

Things aren’t looking good for the Xbox One as PS4 sales top 40 million

This console generation is unlike any that has come before it. Last cycle’s Xbox 360 from Microsoft and PlayStation 3 from Sony were neck and neck throughout the years, and lifetime sales ended up within a couple million units of each other by all counts. Then you had the Nintendo Wii, which blew them both away and topped 100 million units. But this time around it’s a completely different story. Nintendo’s Wii U is a complete disaster that’s already on its way out, and PS4 sales have nearly doubled Xbox One sales thanks in large part to a price gap and huge PR missteps early on.

Now, Sony has announced new sales numbers for its popular PlayStation 4 console and things aren’t looking good at all for Microsoft. More →

Uncharted 4 Review

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review: Blurring the lines between game and film

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review: Blurring the lines between game and film

This isn’t how I wanted to begin this review, but I think it’s important to get it out of the way as quickly as possible: the Uncharted series has never done much for me.

I’ve been in awe of the visuals and appreciated the storytelling chops of the writers, but the action on screen was so often at odds with the plot that I could never really find a foothold into the world that Naughty Dog had created.

Although it has its fair share of contradictions as well, Uncharted 4 is the first game in the series that has really hooked me, and now I’m finally starting to see what I imagine everyone else saw when Uncharted hit the PS3 in 2007.

Will Sony Make a PS5

Sony executive hints that there might never be a PlayStation 5

Sony executive hints that there might never be a PlayStation 5

We’re only a few years into the latest generation of gaming consoles, but that hasn’t stopped gamers from speculating about future hardware. Even as the PS4 and Xbox One continue to fly off store shelves, analysts and consumers alike have begun to assume that these could be the last standalone home consoles.

Adding fuel to the fire, one Sony executive seemed to imply to a developer not only that the PlayStation 5 wasn’t in production, but that there might not be a PS5 at all.
