Next generation gaming consoles: What can we expect?

Would you believe it? The time has come to talk about next-generation consoles again. The PS4 and Xbox One have been in service for almost eight years and it’s time for a new phase of gaming machines. While Microsoft and Sony have been rather tight-lipped about their upcoming consoles, the recent E3 press conference in Los Angeles has brought us some exciting announcements.

Don’t buy that eBay Cyberpunk 2077 jacket – patience will pay off

There's no question that Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the biggest games at E3 2019. From the reveal that Keanu Reeves will be in the game (and the appearance of Reeves himself as a hype man) to the announcement of its release date at long last, Cyberpunk 2077 definitely dominated headlines and discussion throughout the week. Now, unfortunately, it seems that some people are looking to cash in on all that hype.

Square Enix plans subscription service – if it can find the game code

Square Enix plans subscription service – if it can find the game code

In the era of modern gaming, often what's old is new again. Publishers that have been around for decades like to port older games to modern platforms, and Square Enix is certainly no exception. Over the past few years, the company has been porting a number of its classic RPGs to smartphones and current-generation consoles, but it wants to go even further.

Tesla cars are getting “Fallout Shelter”, Netflix and YouTube

Tesla cars are getting “Fallout Shelter”, Netflix and YouTube

Sitting in your Tesla and not actually moving might seem like an odd way to pass the time, but the addition of Fallout Shelter along with a host of other time-wasting dashboard distractions could end up more fun than even Ludicrous Mode. Tesla CEO Elon Musk made an E3 2019 appearance this week to talk about new games and apps coming to the touchscreens of the EV-maker's cars.

Here’s how Atari VCS will run PC games

Here’s how Atari VCS will run PC games

As far as the Atari VCS is concerned, the biggest news to come out of E3 2019 was the launch of pre-orders for the machine. The console is still quite some time off - it isn't anticipated to begin shipping until sometime in March 2020 - but today, perhaps to tempt out some pre-orders from those who may be on the fence, Atari dished some more details on the console.

Xbox Game Pass on Nintendo Switch? Don’t get your hopes up

Xbox Game Pass on Nintendo Switch? Don’t get your hopes up

Xbox Game Pass is a pretty great service if you've got an Xbox One, and just recently we saw it expand to PC as well. That jump to PC and Microsoft's cross-platform ambitions have left people wondering if the company will try to bring Xbox Game Pass to even more platforms. The Nintendo Switch specifically has been the subject of some recent Game Pass rumors, but Xbox chief Phil Spencer unfortunately poured some cold water on those reports during an interview at E3 2019.

Pokemon boss justifies Sword and Shield Pokedex limitations

Pokemon boss justifies Sword and Shield Pokedex limitations

Pokemon Sword and Shield's appearance at E3 2019 was somewhat marred by the reveal that the Pokemon you'll be able to use will be limited by the Galar region's Pokedex. Essentially, if you have a Pokemon that doesn't appear in the Galar Pokedex, you won't be able to transfer it over to Sword and Shield. As you might imagine, the internet's reaction to this news was pretty negative.

Final Fantasy VII remake will probably be on PlayStation 5 too

Final Fantasy VII remake will probably be on PlayStation 5 too

Now that Sony and Microsoft have both talked about their next consoles to some degree, it's clear that the next generation is nearly upon us. That little fact begs the question of what's going to happen with the games that are launching on current hardware right before these new consoles release. Will those games make the jump to the new consoles as well? In the case of Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII remake at least, it sounds like there's a pretty good chance of that happening.

Konami TurboGrafx-16 Mini is the latest entry to the retro console race

Konami TurboGrafx-16 Mini is the latest entry to the retro console race

Nintendo, Sony, Sega, SNK, and even Atari have all put out their attempts at reviving old, beloved consoles and making them new. While Atari's VCS is a full-sized modern version of its iconic entertainment system, the rest have opted to shrink their revivals down in both size and the games they can play. Konami, who is probably better known for making games than any actual console, is jumping on the latter bandwagon with the TurboGrafx-16 Mini, a console that few might actually remember.

The Witcher 3, of all games, is coming to Switch this year

The Witcher 3, of all games, is coming to Switch this year

Given the Switch's less powerful hardware in comparison to its Xbox and PlayStation-branded competitors, there are some modern games that we wouldn't expect to receive Switch ports. For a lot of people, The Witcher 3 probably tops that list since it's such a graphics-intensive game. As it turns out, CD Projekt Red is bringing the game to Nintendo's hybrid platform anyway, despite its relatively underpowered hardware.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next two DLC characters revealed

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next two DLC characters revealed

As promised, E3 2019 brought the reveal of the next two DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo led its E3 Direct with news of the first one, which is the Hero from the Dragon Quest series. Though people who hate playing against sword characters will probably roll their eyes, adding Hero to Ultimate definitely makes sense given the impending launch of Dragon Quest XI on Switch.
