PlayStation is skipping E3 2020, throws subtle shade at the event

With the upcoming launch of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, the console wars are back again in full swing. Depending on who you ask, one or the other is the console to beat this year. It is arguable, though, that Microsoft's gaming platform may be enjoying the lion's share of the media attention while Sony seems to be biding its time.

If you've been thinking about picking up a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV on PC, it looks like you'll have to wait.

Forget a simple paint job or even 3D printing, this mod is months' work that also represents the collaborative nature of the modding community.

Xbox One will live on after Xbox Series X launches

The beginning of a new console generation is an exciting time, but it can also be a worrying one for owners of current-generation hardware. The temptation for console makers to throw all their weight behind a new machine must be pretty strong, but thankfully, they often keep supporting old-generation hardware for a while after a new console launches. That's particularly true when the old-gen hardware was a popular seller, like the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 2.

Pokemon GO 5G aims to bring Pokemon to “the real world”

Niantic is working to leverage the oncoming new world of 5G connectivity to allow Pokemon GO to become the primary Pokemon game. The Pokemon Company and Niantic have a sort of interesting relationship at the moment, what with Niantic creating the Pokemon GO game separate from the standard development of each new generation of Pokemon.
