Impulse Gear has unveiled at the show a game called Farpoint and a controller that may be more important than the game called the PS VR Aim.

Death Stranding is Hideo Kojima’s new eerie game

Death Stranding is Hideo Kojima’s new eerie game

Kojima-san is indeed back in the gaming industry with the formal announcement of his upcoming title, his first since parting ways with Konami last year. Now heading his own studio, named after himself of course, the game designer who brought the world the Metal Gear series is seemingly trying his hand at something different with "Death Stranding". Given the rather eerie and ominous visuals and soundtrack, this could perhaps be the Silent Hills that the game designer was aiming for.

Detroit: Become Human wants players to be co-writers

Detroit: Become Human wants players to be co-writers

Back at the Paris Games Week in October, Sony showed off one rather vague new title called Detroit: Become Human. Back then, it was described simply about human-like androids who, unsurprisingly, desire to become more human. At E3 2016, Sony gave a bit more flesh to game, also introducing a new character in the process. Yes, it will still be about robots trying to be more human, but how that story ends, as well as the events that will take place, will totally depend on you.

New God of War, Last Guardian, Horizon Zero Dawn shown off at E3

New God of War, Last Guardian, Horizon Zero Dawn shown off at E3

What's the best way to kick off a gaming press event? Aside from an orchestra and a rockin' beatboxing, throat singing lady? Why with Kratos all grown up, of course. And alive, to boot. That is exactly how Sony opened its PlayStation E3 event at the Shrine Auditorium. Setting the mood for the rest of the show, the yet to be titled new God of War installment seemingly brings the violence and god killing to a completely different setting, from the plains and shores of Greece to the mountains and forest of Viking territory.

The time is right for Xbox One and PS4 cross-play

The time is right for Xbox One and PS4 cross-play

Not long after Microsoft and Sony released their latest consoles, South Park did three episodes centered around the consoles (and they were a great parody on Game of Thrones, to boot). The episodes touched on a problem that gamers have faced since online gaming took off during the previous console generation. Namely, the decision of which popular console to choose.

Xperia X camera reported bitten by overheating bug

Xperia X camera reported bitten by overheating bug

If you thought Sony's Xperia smartphones were hot, it probably to think literally about that as well. Sony's smartphones are somewhat notorious for being warmer to the touch than others, overheating at worst. But we thought we've seen the last of those issues after the fiasco that was the Xperia Z4, or Xperia Z3+ elsewhere. Sadly, it seems Sony is unable to fully rid itself of the curse, as the latest Xperia X is reported to have the same overheating issues with the camera as well.

Sony Xperia Z5 Android 6.0.1 update brings back STAMINA mode

Sony Xperia Z5 Android 6.0.1 update brings back STAMINA mode

It isn't unusual for OEMs to implement features not found in stock Android exactly because they want to offer an experience that plain Android just can't. Eventually, Android does catch up, adding those features and causing OEM chanegs to be redundant. Sometimes, however, Android's official version doesn't exactly replace sometimes more useful alternatives. That was apparently the case when Sony removed STAMINA mode from its devices running Android Marshmallow in favor of Android's new Doze feature. After no small amount of complaints, the latest update brings it back for the Xperia Z5 family.

Today, Sony has announced the good news that it will be bringing all four Sony Xperia X models to the US, with pre-orders starting today for the Xperia X, and a retail launch scheduled for June 26.
