At E3 2016, Microsoft announced the "Xbox Play Anywhere" program, which allows Xbox Live users to play digital games on their Xbox One and Windows 10 devices while sharing save data between systems in cloud storage. During Sony's recent investor meeting, President of Sony Interactive Entertainment Andrew House was asked if this new strategy from Microsoft was perceived as a threat, since it might draw more players to Xbox systems, and if Sony had any plans to respond to it.

House confirmed the company does not see the new program as a threat, explaining that what Microsoft does with their platform doesn't have an effect on Sony's decisions. Unlike their rival, Sony believes the best thing to do is to create a unified experience on one system for players to enjoy.

Sony recently announced that it will be removing support for the Ustream broadcasting platform on its PlayStation 4 consoles this coming August. In addition, the Live From Playstation application will no longer allow players to view Ustream streams anymore either. No reason was given for why Ustream support is being removed, however some have speculated that this platform is just not nearly as popular as Twitch or YouTube streaming. Fortunately, streamers on those platforms as well as DailyMotion will be unaffected by this change.

It has been a little over a year since the announcement and successful funding of Shenmue III on Kickstarter, and a lot has happened since then. In celebration of that last year, Suzuki-san has decided to release a video that thanks the fans for their continued support and discusses the project a little bit more. In it, Suzuki states that Shenmue III has really gotten off the ground in the past six months, and "battle and facial expressions are coming together."

Additionally, according to the latest update, the surveys have not been sent out yet and will be announced in a future Kickstarter update. The survey "will confirm all of your reward details (platform choice, T-shirt size, etc.) and shipping information." Hopefully they release more gameplay footage in a future update as well!

It's been nearly three years since Grand Theft Auto V came out, and players are still finding new things in it. Last year, gamers found a golden peyote plant that could transform the finder into a Sasquatch known as Bigfoot. This turned out to be the tip of an even weirder mystery hidden in the game's code, and this week someone finally figured it out.

After over 4 million dollars, several delays, and growing contempt from its backers, Keiji Inafune's Mighty No. 9 finally launched last week on most promised platforms. The conceived spiritual successor to Capcom's Mega Man series was released to high criticism from reviewers for its boorish level design, subpar visuals, and an overall lack of proper polish, among other woes.

Backers who pledged for rewards at $60 and above have taken some inkling of comfort with the promised exclusive DLC: the "Golden Hero" costume and the "MegaXel" bonus transformation. As it turns out, unfortunately, Comcept has gone back on their word, with the two backer-exclusive bonuses that were locked behind expensive paywalls on Kickstarter now launching as public DLC in August.

Capcom's Street Fighter V launched with sixteen playable characters, and since then more have been released as DLC, and even more are on the way. Capcom will continue to support the fighting game with new characters over time, but not everyone made the cut. In addition to certain characters from past games being excluded, Capcom was also working on a handful of new characters that were eventually either scrapped or re-imagined as someone else. In a recent blog post, Capcom gave us an inside look at some artwork and story for some of these cancelled characters, including Gen's Disciple, a Prototype Shadaloo Soldier, and more.

Yesterday, the website for 2K Games briefly listed the highly-anticipated BioShock: The Collection, adding fuel to a fire that's been burning for nearly a year. Today, however, 2K Games has officially revealed BioShock: The Collection. The console versions contain all single-player content released for the three BioShock games (sorry, fans of BioShock 2's multiplayer), while the PC version will leave out BioShock Infinite because it "already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings." It also includes a never-before-seen director's commentary video from Ken Levine and Shawn Robertson, entitled "Imagining BioShock". BioShock: The Collection also will run in 1080p and 60fps across all platforms.

BioShock: The Collection will sell for $59.99 upon launch. You'll be able to return to Rapture and Columbia on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this September 13th for North America, September 15th for Australia, and September 16th everywhere else.

The Game Critics Awards is an association made up of forty online video game publications that band together annually to give awards to the best games shown off at E3 every year. This year, the Game Critics Awards are dividing their awards into 16 different categories, such as "Best Console Game," "Best Independent Game," and "Best RPG," with around four to five nominees for one award in each category. A few days ago, the association revealed this year's nominees for the awards. This breakdown shows that Battlefield 1 has the largest amount of nominations, as the game received a nomination in five separate categories (including Game of the Show). Battlefield was closely followed by Dishonored 2 and Horizon Zero Dawn, which received four nominations apiece.

Earlier this week, Sony held an Investors meeting, discussing the current numbers as well as future plans and financial targets. Sony announced that they sold 40 million PlayStation 4 units, maintaining "the fastest penetration in PlayStation history." Additionally, Sony revealed that PlayStation Plus has reached 20.8 million subscribers. Sony also detailed their plans for the future, stating that PlayStation Vue, PlayStation VR, and their partnership with Kojima Productions are each an "investment for the future." Sony hopes that the PlayStation VR will expand into other forms of entertainment such as sports and concerts.

Uncharted 4 may have brought Nathan Drake's story to a close, but that doesn't mean that Naughty Dog is done with the series just yet. They've pledged to develop several packs of DLC for the game, and the first of them—a pack offering a number of new options in multiplayer—just dropped today. Featuring new maps, weapons, powers, skins, and more, the "Lost Treasures" pack sure looks ready to spice up matches against your friends and online rivals!

Sony released a trailer going through the features present in this DLC pack, and you can check it out after the jump!

Remasters are nothing new in this console generation, and for almost a year now we've been seeing signs that the much-lauded BioShock games would be the next series getting re-released. This morning saw another piece of evidence added to the fire, but this time it was far more official and all but confirms the remaster's existence. For a short time today the website of series publisher 2K Games played host to a section for BioShock The Collection, the previously-rumored title for the remasters, and the same box art that was leaked earlier this year was soon after discovered on their servers.

No official announcement has yet been made, and the site has since reverted to its prior, BioShock-less version. Nevertheless, you can check out an image of the leak for yourself after the jump!

Mods are a major part of most Bethesda games, and they've started bringing official mod support to console versions of some of their latest and greatest games. Fallout 4 is one of the first to get this privilege, and fans have been able to modify the game as they wish for nearly a month on Xbox One. However, Sony players are not so lucky. Mods were supposed to come to the PlayStation 4 version of Fallout 4 "soon," preceded by a beta, but this morning Bethesda announced that the beta was being delayed.
