Naughty Dog has come a long way since its early days of terrible games like Way of the Warrior. They’re now a gaming industry powerhouse, responsible for some of Playstation’s most beloved mascots such as Crash Bandicoot and recent experiences such as The Last of Us.
This month they celebrate their 30th anniversary, so to commemorate, Sony released this special reflective video.
As the NFL preseason rolls on and Madden NFL 15’s release draws closer, EA Sports unleashes an ad which proves to be one of the week’s best highlights (especially in what will end up being one of the gloomiest weeks of the year).
Comedy ‘it’ guy Kevin Hart links up with James Franco’s younger brother for what proves to be an incredible must-see video.
The cover has been revealed. The release date is known. As usual, one of the last anticipated gems that everyone wants to know about is the soundtrack. This year’s playlist, which was curated by Pharrell Williams, doesn’t disappoint. In fact, as somebody who has heard every NBA 2K soundtrack since they started adding licensed music, this might be one of the best.

Gotta give props for them re-adding “Planet Rock,” which was last heard in NBA 2K7. That brings back tons of memories; 2K7 was the first game I got with my new Xbox 360 at the time, and I had a blast hearing the song on the main menu every time I was about to dominate online with my DWade/Shaq led Heat.
Overall, the playlist looks like it will be quite memorable.
Nerdgasm on deck. Despite earlier leaks in the day, Tekken 7 has now been “officially” revealed with more info coming soon at Comic-Con San Diego later this month.
"The Final Battle" is kinda saddening. Then again, Namco pulled the same thing with early Soul Calibur IV trailers, making it seem as though it would be the last game.
All in all, fighting game players have Mortal Kombat X and now this to look forward to presumably in 2015.
Your hype for The Phantom Pain should be through the roof after watching this gameplay footage. This 30-minute clip was done behind closed doors, and Konami today has unleashed it on the public.
A definitive release date still isn’t known but it will be available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Pre-orders are available.
The folks over at Digital Foundry have become a go-to spot on the net for comparisons of games across different platforms, highlighting key differences and determining which version is better. So with that, it should be no surprise that this video is close to 1 million views already.
When the next-gen GTA V trailer dropped last week, people were quick to break it down and determine if it truly was an improved game visually. So with this, DF takes parts of the trailer and matches it up with footage from the PS3 version. The results are actually pretty surprising.
Better lighting, more people and cars on the streets, more wildlife and elements in previously barren spots, and overall just a better looking game.
Rockstar might be trying to make a pretty good case for people to buy the game again if they’re on next-gen consoles now. It drops later this year in the Fall and pre-orders are now available.
In other GTA V news, the “I’m Not a Hipster” update dropped today.
Scoop that the next time you’re on your PS3/Xbox 360.
At long last, Rockstar has answered fan demand by teasing last year’s mega release GTA V on the new consoles, as well as the long awaited PC release. The cool thing of course is that your GTA Online progress carries over. This is just one more reason for folks to get onboard and ditch their last gen console.
Yesterday was a big day, with tons of new games and gameplay footage seen via Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony’s conferences at E3.
