Konami is really giving special treatment to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. They've partnered with Sony to created a special limited edition PlayStation 4 console and controller themed after the game, and they've also created a purchasable bionic arm modeled after the arm of Big Boss in the game. Today they released two new videos, one giving us another up close and personal look at the special console and bionic arm, and another showing off the special edition of the game in Japan.

Late last year Capcom unveiled Street Fighter V for PC and PlayStation 4. Unlike some timed exclusivity deals, Capcom has confirmed that PlayStation 4 will keep its console exclusivity of Street Fighter V forever, and that's due to a great relationship between Capcom and Sony. Capcom community manager Peter "The ComboFiend" Rosas recently opened up about the relationship between the two companies, stating that Sony has the right vision for fighting games and the necessary ambition to make PlayStation 4 the best platform for them. Hit the jump for his thoughts.

It was recently announced that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will feature microtransactions, and many fans aren't pleased. However, Konami says there's no cause for concern. Everything that can be purchased can also be achieved through in-game means, making microtransactions entirely optional. Rather than serving as a means of forcing players to pay for content, the microtransactions are there for struggling players. Hit the jump for more.

If you've had your fun with the Dark Knight and you're looking to play as someone else, we've got some good news! Arkham Knight's Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC will be available for those who bought the season pass on July 14th. For everyone else, it will be available a week later on July 21st for $9.

A Matter of Family is a prequel story starring Barbara Gordon as Batgirl, and Robin will also make an appearance, allowing for some fun Dual Play action. The DLC is set in a new area with new missions and sidequests to tackle. This DLC was created by Warner Bros. Montreal, the same team that made Arkham Origins.

Like The Last of Us before it, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will feature a photo mode. While not much is known right now about the mode, it will feature an improved version of the one found in The Last of Us. As the game progresses towards its spring 2016 release date, we will hopefully receive more information on what to expect from this mode.

During Naughty Dog's stream of the extended Uncharted 4: A Thief's End demo, it was confirmed that the fourth installment of the franchise will be in 30 frames per second like its predecessors. The game will be locked at 30 FPS as the team felt that it was the best solution for gameplay and overall quality, as well as to have the best looking game possible. They went on to say that a stable 30 FPS is better than a variable 60, and if they did push for 60 it would take them longer to optimize each level, pushing the release date back even further and forcing them to make compromises within the game.

Naughty Dog is still aiming for multiplayer to run at 60 FPS though, and they can't wait to show it off.

Bethesda has made an announcement on Major Nelson's blog that digital pre-orders for Fallout 4 on Xbox One can now be made on the Xbox Games Store and Xbox.com. For a limited time, codes for a free copy of Fallout 3 will also be included with some pre-orders.

During Sony's E3 2015 press conference, Guerrilla Games revealed an exciting new adventure called Horizon Zero Dawn. The trailer showed a large, beautiful overworld populated with dinosaur-styled robots and a huntress bravely taking them on with a bow. Guerrilla Games has now released a new version of that trailer featuring senior producer Mark Norris as a narrator, giving us a scene-by-scene breakdown of what's happening on screen.

Complaining on the internet prevails again! In a recent interview with EDGE Magazine, Shuhei Yoshida revealed that Sony "probably" would have cancelled The Last Guardian if it wasn't for the fans' persistence. When porting the project over to the PlayStation 4, Yoshida mentions that it was tough due to the uncertainty of the project's status.

"Tech issues aside, the game was still early in development, so we had to have a really strong desire to continue the project and rebuild on PS4. And of course we believed in the vision of Ueda-san, and Ueda-san and the core teams really wanted to see this realised, and so did I. Having so many people asking us about the game was great encouragement for us to continue the development." — Shuhei Yoshida

Electronic Arts doesn’t have the best reputation. The company has been criticized for hamfisted DRM, an overabundance of DLC, and premature launches of buggy games. Yet, it is debatably the biggest name in the video game industry. It has built franchises up to reputations that have become household names. If there’s any company that I feel represents the highs and lows of triple-A publishers, it’s Electronic Arts.

Considering EA’s reputation and position in the industry, the company’s reveal of Unravel at E3 sticks out like a little indie apple in a pile of action-packed oranges. Sandwiched between Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 (complemented with Kenny Loggins’s “Danger Zone”) and Mass Effect: Andromeda (complemented by Johnny Cash’s “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky”), a nervous man took the stage to talk about his studio’s physics-based sidescroller. The juxtaposition is almost laughable in retrospect. Unravel didn’t quite fit in with Electronic Arts’ line-up. It shouldn’t though, as it is something completely new for the publisher. Unravel represents an expansion into smaller, quieter games for Electronic Arts. That’s worth welcoming.

Not all Uncharted fans were lucky enough to go to this year's E3 and experience the full Uncharted 4: A Thief's End demo. Naughty Dog helped their fans out, though, and streamed the full demo on Twitch earlier today. Afterwards a Q&A was hosted with Co-Lead Game Designers Kurt Margenau and Anthony Newman, and they answered some major questions from fans regarding the game.

For the PlayStation 4, the arena-based, futuristic vehicle sports title Rocket League and the RPG-inspired Styx: Master of Shadows are included, as well as a PlayStation 3 exclusive supernatural game called Rain. The PS Vita, on the other hand, will have the premiering Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved. More details on this month's lineup and the accompanying trailer are available after the jump!

Back in April, Best Buy's listings told of an upcoming physical release of last year's hit indie title Shovel Knight, indicating that the once digital exclusive would hit retail shelves later this year. Yacht Club Games had since stated that their game would not see a retail release, but it appears that the eponymous Blue Burrower ultimately will be digging his way into stores later this year after all! In a recent announcement on the developer's website, Shovel Knight will release for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One come October. Read on for more details!
