Watch The Best Game Trailers From E3 This Year

E3 2014 had some huge moments for any avid gamer. There was a pervasive ‘sequel’ theme in the biggest announcements — existing franchises getting a reboot, or a next-gen upgrade, or some new story — but some experimental titles also caught our attention.

PS4 Update: Enhanced Video Editing, Advance Downloads Of Games

Dick Smith Is Screwing Playstation 4 Pre-Order Customers

Tell me if this sounds right to you: Dick Smith is holding 300 units of the most pre-ordered console of all time to ransom tonight. It won’t let people just walk in and buy them, nor will it sell them to people who have had theirs on order for months.

Most pieces of technology — like smartphones, TVs, and even computers — are replaced by new models every six or 12 months. Game consoles, on the other hand, are meant to last for at least five years.
