The weekly hardware and software sales data from Japan is in, courtesy of Media Create, and CD Projekt Red's latest game is a hit. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt opened at number one in Japan with 67,385 sales. This was essentially the only highlight of the week in the Japanese market, as no other new game was able to top 10,000 sales, and older titles like Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate cracked the top twenty in the absence of strong-selling new software. Hardware sales were underwhelming as well, with no platform breaking 20,000 sales for the week. Click below for the full breakdown.

Last year Sony decided to broadcast its E3 presentation in select movie theaters across the US. Tickets sold out almost immediately, and the event was a huge success. As such, Sony is bringing that strategy back and expanding it. Sony will once again broadcast their E3 presentation, but this time there will be at least one viewing location in every state (including Alaska and Hawaii), as well as three cities in Canada.

Attendees of the event will receiving PlayStation prizes, and following the press conference there will be an exclusive 30 minute post-show hosted by Geoff Keighley. You'll be able to order tickets here on May 27th at 9:00 am Pacific. Click below to check out the announcement trailer!

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers for Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it's been a disappointing week in Japan. The PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy X | X-2 HD Remaster took the top software spot, but with only 15,913 units sold, and only two other games managed to break 10,000 sales for the week.

Hardware sales were disappointing as well, as every single dedicated game device saw declined sales from the previous week, and no platform managed to break 20,000 sales for the week. It looks like the Japanese market is in desperate need of some new games! Click below to check out the numbers for the week.

Five companies traditionally hold press conferences in the days leading up to E3, but this year Bethesda and Square Enix are joining this year as well to make the total seven. Sony has just officially announced the date and time for their press conference with the image seen to the left. Oddly enough, the announcement image repeatedly includes the number "2" along with the four PlayStation button symbols.

If you want to catch all the big PlayStation news next year, you'll want to tune into Gamnesia on Monday, June 15 at 6:00 pm Pacific. We'll be streaming the event live and reporting on all the news as it breaks.

LEGO Jurassic World releases on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and PC on June 12th. This is great timing on the part of Warner Bros., as Jurassic World releases in theaters the same day.

The weekly Japanese software and hardware sales numbers are in from Japan, and it's been a slow week. No new titles managed to crack the top twenty, and some older games (like Mario Kart 7 and Animal Crossing: New Leaf) have climbed back up to fill the empty spaces. In all, nineteen out of the top twenty best-selling games this week were Nintendo, with the one exception being Minecraft on PlayStation Vita. New Nintendo 3DS LL and PlayStation 3 saw slightly improved sales this week, but sales of every other piece of hardware declined across the board. Hit the jump for the breakdown!

The weekly hardware and software sales figures from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a solid week for Nintendo. Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition took the number one spot, selling nearly 180,000 units and providing a slight boost to 3DS sales. Dragon Quest X: Legend of the Ancient Dragon Online and Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U took the next two spots, boosting Wii U sales from 7,210 last week to 22,898 this week. Vita also got a slight boost this week from a handful of titles. Hit the jump for the full breakdown!

The Misadventures of Tron Bonne had a limited run when it released for the PlayStation in 2000; the release of the PlayStation 2 sent the game into the console's shadow. The game still became a cult classic, though, and was well received by fans and critics, but few have gotten to play it. Due to its limited run, getting a copy before now would cost you a few hundred on eBay. Capcom decided to change that, and now you can find The Misadventures of Tron Bonne on PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PSP, and PS TV for only $5.99. That's a much better deal than $300. If you are already eager to buy the game, you can grab it here.

Many people were captivated by the world of Epic Mickey, a game in which you explore a world of forgotten Disney cartoons while taking on the role of Mickey Mouse, who looks like he’s jumped straight out of his debut cartoon, Steamboat Willie. The game was often criticized for its poor camera controls but was highly praised for its use of forgotten creations from Disney.

Warren Spector, director of the title, has said that he once expressed interest in creating a movie adaptation for the series. However, Disney turned him down. Read more after the jump!

Atlus is spinning off the characters of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 into a new rhythm game for the PlayStation Vita, titled Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

Head inside to watch the latest trailer, featuring the young, Junes Department Store-obsessed Nanako Dojima. Persona 4: Dancing All Night releases on June 25 in Japan and elsewhere later this year.

This spiritual successor to Mega Man will be available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, 3DS, Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux. While you wait, you can check out a new batch of screenshots released today by Comcept and publisher Deep Silver by clicking below!

While Minecraft is an addicting game that is enjoyed by many, it was not representative of the game's entire playerbase. The only option players were able to pick was a blue-shirted avatar named Steve. Because of this, Mojang has added a female avatar named Alex. Alex has slightly thinner arms, a ponytail, and red hair.

In addition to the new female avatar, PlayStation owners can also download The Simpsons skin pack. The skin pack includes the entire Simpsons family as well as Principal Seymour Skinner, Dewy Largo, and Groundskeeper Willie. Both the female avatar and The Simpsons skin pack are now available to download.

Sony has reported their number for fiscal 2014 (April 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015) and there are some mixed results. The year saw strong numbers for PlayStation 4, but Sony's other divisions struggled. As a result, the company reported a loss of ¥126 billion, or over $1 billion. However, the Game and Network Services division was profitable by ¥48.1 billion, or about $404 million. Video game (software and hardware) sales were up 33% over the previous year, and Sony noted the Game and Network Services division as a major factor in increased sales for the company as a whole.
