PlayStation vs. Xbox: Who won E3 2016?

PlayStation vs. Xbox: Who won E3 2016?

By on June 15, 2016 at 12:59 PM.

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 Xbox One is cheaper than ever, but you still shouldn’t buy it

If you haven’t bought a Xbox One yet, there’s really no point in doing so right now. Sure, it’s cheaper than it ever was – and practically a steal at $279, or $20 in savings compared to the previous discount. But you’d be better off waiting until August and pay $399 for the Xbox One S instead. More →

‘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.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst Review

‘Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’ review: edge of tomorrow

‘Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’ review: edge of tomorrow

By on June 6, 2016 at 12:06 PM.

Mirror’s Edge was basically a racing game.

Although it featured many elements of platformers and first-person shooters, the primary way that you interacted with the environment was by running, jumping, sliding and rolling through it at high speeds.

It wasn’t perfect, but it offered an experience unlike any other, which is why the prequel, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, has become one of the most highly anticipated games of the generation. So does it live up to the hype?

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 →
