PS4 Slim Release Date Rumor

Sony’s answer to the Xbox One S expected to launch in September

Sony’s answer to the Xbox One S expected to launch in September

One of the biggest surprises of E3 2016 was the lack of new hardware on display. Although Microsoft used its press conference to unveil both the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio, Nintendo and Sony decided to save their hardware announcements for a later date. There’s no telling how long we’ll have to wait to see the NX, but it sounds like we might only be a few months out from a PS4 Slim.

PlayStation VR Future of Virtual Reality

If VR is going to have a future, PlayStation VR can’t fail

By on June 30, 2016 at 12:14 PM.

If VR is going to have a future, PlayStation VR can’t fail

It has been a very, very long time since a peripheral has shaken up the game industry. EyeToy was a bust, Kinect died a slow, excruciating death and there’s a pretty good chance you’d completely forgotten about the GBA e-Reader.

All of those hardware add-ons failed (or are in the process of failing), but it never really mattered. They took a risk; it didn’t pan out; we all moved on.

With all of that failure in the rearview mirror, PlayStation VR has a mighty tough row to hoe, but if VR really is the future of gaming, it simply can’t fail.

You can play PlayStation VR at these retailers starting tomorrow

Although Sony didn’t have any new consoles to announce at E3 2016, there was one piece of hardware that stole the spotlight during the company’s press conference: the PlayStation VR. Launching this fall, the PlayStation VR will be the first consumer VR headset that doesn’t require a beastly PC, and later this week, you’ll be able to try the headset for yourself at select retailers.

PlayStation vs. Xbox E3 2016

PlayStation vs. Xbox: Who won E3 2016?

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.

Sony E3 2016 Best Reveals

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

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 →
