Shenmue 3 is a game that was 14 years in the marking, and thanks to a record-setting Kickstarter campaign (the game raised $2 million in just 9 hours), we’ve seen that fans of the popular game series are still willing to show their support for creator Yu Suzuki. When the Kickstarter campaign was first initiated, gamers were only able to pledge their support for a digital copy of the game at a cost of $29. However, Suzuki has something up his sleeve for extremely dedicated fans of the series: This is one of the most requested items on the list, and we are very happy to be able to include the Shenmue...

Microsoft made quite the impression at this year's E3. The company unveiled a fancy (and expensive) new Xbox One controller that you can customize to your liking, and even more appealing, Microsoft announced that it's adding native support for hundreds of Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. Even so, gamers in Japan were largely underwhelmed by it all, as they collectively purchased just 100 Xbox One consoles two weeks ago. That's not a typo, folks. Media Create, a Japanese-language website that tracks video game software and hardware sales in Japan, pegged the Xbox One's sales at... Read more...
Earlier this month, the 1TB PlayStation 4 gained FCC certification, leading many to speculate that Sony would announce the capacious gaming console at E3 2015. While Microsoft delivered its 1TB Xbox One, a kickass Elite wireless gaming controller, Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 PCs, and native backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games, Sony’s E3 presser was pretty much a snoozefest with nary a mention of the 1TB PS4. That changes today with the announcement of the PlayStation 4 Ultimate Player 1TB Edition (say that three times fast) via Sony’s European PlayStation Blog. The console goes... Read more...
A good sign that you've managed to pull off something impressive is when even your arch nemesis is surprised at your accomplishment. That's how it went when Microsoft made the shocking announcement at E3 that Xbox One will be able to natively play Xbox 360 titles later this year. When apprised of the news, rival Sony could only offer props to Microsoft's engineering feat."It was surprising," admitted Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. "I didn't think it was possible. There must be lots of engineering effort. They talked about 100 games, but what kind of games will be included. Is... Read more...
If you’re an ardent PC racing fiend, chances are that you either own or have heard of Logitech’s G27. The G27 replaced its predecessor, the G25, way back in 2010. The G27 has been a popular gaming peripheral (it supports the PC, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3) that not only includes a steering wheel and three pedals (accelerator, brake, clutch), but also a six-speed “H” pattern gearbox. But five years is a long time in the PC gaming industry and a replacement for the G27 has been long overdue. Thankfully, Logitech has a two-pronged approach for its successor. Logitech is introducing the G29 Driving... Read more...
If you were bummed that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed until 2016, Sony has a bit of a consolation prize for Nathan Drake fans. Sony today took to its PlayStation Blog to announced that the original trilogy for the PlayStation 3 — Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception — are being rereleased as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for the PlayStation 4. Since series creator Naughty Dog has its hands tied trying to finish up A Thief’s End, it turned to none other than the pros at Bluepoint Games to remaster the all three games to... Read more...
Yesterday, we brought you the momentous news that Bethesda had a new Fallout game in the works, and that a 10AM EST announcement Wednesday morning would seal the deal. Well, we haven’t quite crept up on 10AM yet, but the news surrounding Fallout 4 is coming in at a furious pace. We have official confirmation that Fallout 4 will not only be available on the PC, but also the two premier console platforms: Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4. As has been rumored for quite some time, the game is set in a Boston, with “Scollay Square” shown prominently in the screenshot below. We have also... Read more...
It appears as though Sony is getting ready to launch a pair of revised PlayStation 4 consoles, one of which will come with twice the amount of storage of current PS4 consoles. A filing with the Federal Communications Commission spills the beans on Sony's plans, though outside of the storage bump and some weight discrepancies, details are pretty sparse.There are two models listed in the certification documents on the FCC's website -- one is listed as CUH-1215A and the other is CUH-1215B. There's also a testing kit listed in the same document,, with model number DUH-T1200AA.The only difference we... Read more...
As short as the new Need for Speed trailer is, it tells you everything you need to know about the franchise reboot. In just 34 seconds, your blood will be pounding and you’ll be ready to open your wallet. Alas, the latest Need for Speed is being developed and won’t be out until closer to the end of the year. EA just dropped this teaser to whet our appetites, and it’s working. Speedhunters.com released the Need For Speed trailer, which is fitting – the car culture website was originally created to promote the franchise. It has since gathered its own following of car enthusiasts and routinely reports... Read more...
It doesn't happen very often, so you'll have to excuse Microsoft if it savors the moment after its Xbox One console outsold rival Sony and its PlayStation 4 system last month, according to data collected by NPD Group. The Xbox One was the best selling game console in the U.S. in April, a month in which overall hardware sales decreased by 4 percent. Microsoft needed a win. Since launch, the PS4 has been pretty consistent in outselling the Xbox One, which no doubt played a role in Microsoft's decision to sell the standalone console without a second generation Kinect motion control sensor. Microsoft... Read more...
Considering the long gaps that sit in between console upgrade cycles, it's a bit early to declare any winners or losers among the latest generation of gaming systems. However, we can make predictions based on early trends, and if you ask Ed Fries, the man who was in charge of the team that created the original Xbox, he'll tell you that Sony's PlayStation 4 is likely to keep its lead over Microsoft's Xbox One. It won't be a landslide victory, though Fries sees the PS4 winning "by a nose" if things continue the way they have been. After jumping out to an early sales lead, the PS4 at last count had...

Sony today said it's readying an update for the PlayStation 4 that it plans to start rolling out tomorrow (Thursday). Codenamed "Yukimura," the system software update to version 2.50 will "bring an onslaught" of features to the PS4 console, several of which are the result of user requests and others that "might surprise you." One of the bigger feature additions is the ability to suspend and resume nearly all PS4 games. If something comes up and you need to scoot, just press the PS button to suspend a title. The new feature will allow you to quickly switch from Rest Mode to powered-up so you can... Read more...
It looks as though PlayStation 4 gamers will have to wait at least another year before getting to spend some hands-on time with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, the PS4 exclusive that was initially slated to debut sometime this year. Neil Druckmann, creative director of the game's development studio Naughty Dog, announced in a Sony blog post today that it's delaying the title until Spring 2016. Druckmann said that as more of the game and story line came together, it became increasingly clear that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a more ambitious project than Naughty Dog originally envisioned. As such,... Read more...
Chinese gamers that have been anticipating the arrival of Sony’s PlayStation 4 console will only have to wait just a little bit longer. Sony officially announced today that the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita will be available on Friday, March 20. Sony had originally settled on a January 11 launch date for its consoles, but was stymied by Chinese government. "The government asked us for final adjustments, which will take some time, so we decided to delay the launch date," said Sony spokeswoman Kaede Bun in early January. With things now firmly back on track, Chinese customers can expect to pay... Read more...
