Round Up: Your Ultimate Guide to All of E3 2015's Biggest News, Trailers, and Announcements

Your Ultimate Guide to All of E3 2015's Biggest News, Trailers, and Announcements

What a week that was

Can you believe it? E3 2015 just about done after almost a solid week of hectic coverage. For us, it's time for a break, but for you, the next couple of weeks are going to seem decidedly drab in comparison - perhaps even boring. Still, this year's Los Angeles-based expo proved to be well worth the fuss, granting us five big...

E3 2015: What's Going on with Gravity Rush 2?

What's Going on with Gravity Rush 2?

Come, come, kitty, kitty

Gravity Rush is one of this author's favourite new franchises of the past five years. Kat's inaugural outing on the PlayStation Vita may not have been perfect, but it had enough personality and gameplay nuance to make it a property worth investing in. It's a shame, then, that following the announcement of a sequel a few...

E3 2015: Sony's Done Making Big Games for PS Vita

Sony's Done Making Big Games for PS Vita

And that was the end of that

Sony may be unsure whether the PlayStation Vita is a legacy device, but the platform holder has ruled out the development of any future blockbusters for the format regardless. Speaking with IGN, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida said that the organisation will not be making any more AAA first-party games...

Razor sharp

Enhanced port Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment, and all-new PlayStation 4 and Vita title Sword Art Online: Lost Song have both sliced their way into E3 2015 with two fresh trailers.

In the mood for some actual games following this week's E3 2015 goodness? Of course you darn well are.

For example, you'll be able to get Alien...

E3 2015: World of Final Fantasy Brings Square Enix's Beloved Universe to PS4, Vita

World of Final Fantasy Brings Square Enix's Beloved Universe to PS4, Vita

What a world

A surprise announcement at Sony's E3 press conference - and not just because it's coming to Vita - Square Enix is developing a turn-based role-playing game known as World of Final Fantasy. The title, which is incredibly cute, celebrates the, er, world of Final Fantasy. The release's debut trailer is a short one, but we're certainly...

UK Sales Charts: The Elder Scrolls Online Explores the Summit

Back on its throne

Despite a troubled PC launch, the console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has wandered to the top of the UK sales charts. Surprisingly, the game actually sold best on the Xbox One, despite recent role-playing releases like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt faring stronger on Sony's format. It's not clear at the time...

10th June 2015 (Europe)

Sorry for the delay

Oh, right – the European PlayStation Store update. Yeah, embarrassingly we forgot to post this yesterday, but it's been a darn busy week. These kinds of things are better late than never, though, right? Well, that's certainly what we hope. PS4 Games: The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited £54.99/€69.99/AU$99.95 LEGO...

Here's a Quick Look at Custom Characters in Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3

Slash it your way

Upcoming handheld hack and slasher Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 lets you create your own character, or indeed, characters, and then throw them onto the field of battle to rage way against legendary Japanese generals.

News: Japanese Sales Charts: The Witcher 3 Holds Its Ground as PS4 Sinks Deeper

Japanese Sales Charts: The Witcher 3 Holds Its Ground as PS4 Sinks Deeper

Sigh

We're going to be honest here: we really can't pad this article out with any kind of flair. Once again, the Japanese charts make for some reasonably depressing reading, as the PlayStation 4's sales continue to drop. Last week, Sony's latest sold just 11,763 units, and only three PS4 titles made it into the top 20. You can compare the prior...

Mike Bithell's Volume Slips onto PS4, Vita from 18th August

Say it loud

It's always hard to get heard during E3 season, but we suppose if your game's called Volume, you should have zero excuses. Mike Bithell has announced that his aforementioned Metal Gear Solid-inspired stealth title is set to slip onto the PlayStation 4 and Vita from 18th August. There's a new trailer embedded below which sets the game up...

9th June 2015 (North America)

Final fantasy

E3 insanity awaits in less than a week's time, but you're probably going to need something to keep you occupied, right? Good thing the North American PlayStation Store update is here to keep you flush with new software. The big highlight is obviously The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, but there are a couple of new...

Out This Week: The Elder Scrolls Online, LEGO Jurassic World, Payday 2 PS4

The Elder Scrolls Online, LEGO Jurassic World, Payday 2 PS4

Time fillers

T'was the week before E3 and all around the web, nary a video game publisher dared raise its nervous head. A nice introductory ditty that may be, but there are a couple of new games to look forward to this week. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited's the big one, but LEGO Jurassic World and Payday 2: Crimewave Edition are worth...
