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 →
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 →

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.
Sony will soon unveil everything there is to know about Project Morpheus’ launch, but the first details regarding gaming on the PS4 virtual reality headset have already been shared with some members of the media – and they paint a glorious future for VR gaming. A new piece in Wired tells the story of Sony’s secret weapon for VR: one of its partners is already working on first-person shooter games that would be played with a special gun accessory that nobody else has, and which will fix critical issues with such games, at least when VR is involved.

Starting on Tuesday, owners of select Samsung smart TVs will be able to stream PS3 games without a video game console, although a DualShock 4 controller is required to play. More →
If you’ve owned a PlayStation 4 since launch day, there’s a decent chance you’ve hit a wall when it comes to internal storage. 500GB might sound like a lot, but when the average triple-A game can take up 30-40GB, space vanishes quickly. Sony has made it possible for users to manually replace their hard drives, but if that sounds like too much of a hassle, it might be worth waiting on an official 1TB model. More →
If you’ve been holding out for a PlayStation 4 price drop, you might be in luck. On Wednesday, WholesomeGamer was tipped off that Sony’s official retail loyalty site, intended to reward verified video game retail employees, is currently running a promotion which gives members the chance to win a PS4, PS Vita and other prizes.
Within the rules of the promotion, Sony lists the ARV (average retail value) of each prize, but here’s the catch: the prices listed don’t match up with the current MSRP of the PS4 or the Vita. More →
