Sony Will Apparently Reveal The Launch Titles For PS5 ‘Soon’

‘Soon’ is a word not many gamers like to hear. What is soon anyway? A week? A month?

Xbox Launches Monthly Event For 2020 To Compensate For E3’s Cancellation

Of course, with the whole COVID-19 outbreak, it was absolutely the right call, unfortunate though it may have been. Of course, E3 was a big chance for Microsoft to showcase all the new Xbox related goodies, so in the absence of that opportunity, they’ve settled on digital events, similar to Nintendo Direct videos. They’re calling this video series Xbox 20/20. These monthly videos will lead up to the holidays, when the Xbox Series X is to release.

A Saints Row 3 Remaster has been Announced

In fact, the much-beloved open-world crime and comedy adventure Saints Row 3 is getting a remaster for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
