PS4 owners will be able to download NBA 2K16 and Gone Home: Console Edition for free, PS3 owners can grab Echochrome and Siren: Blood Curse (Episodes 1-12), and PS Vita owners will get access to God of War: Chains of Olympus and Little Deviants.

Sony recently announced that they will be livestreaming their E3 event in theaters across the US and Canada. The tickets for the event are now available, but you'll have to be quick as they are being given out on a first-come first-serve basis. The tickets are free while supplies last, with 80% of theater capacities being given to ticket holders and the other 20% to those already on the waiting list.

The PlayStation E3 Experience runs from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM PT on June 14th with an exclusive 30 minute post-show hosted by Geoff Keighley.

Last year, Sony broadcasted their E3 press conference in select movie theaters throughout the United States and Canada, giving PlayStation fans across both countries a chance to get together and celebrate their excitement for the company's upcoming games. This year, Sony is bringing the excitement of their E3 press conference back to theaters as the "PlayStation E3 Experience 2016," and they're adding Latin America viewing locations as well.

It's going to be a long wait for season two of the popular anime Attack on Titan, but fans still have a good reason to be excited. Koei Tecmo has released a beautifully-styled, action-packed video game adaptation of Attack on Titan in Japan, and it's coming to North America and Europe in August. Koei Tecmo brought an English build of the upcoming game to MCM Comic Con in London, and four minutes of off-screen footage (showing off an early level with Eren as the main character) has been uploaded to YouTube.

World of Final Fantasy was revealed at E3 2015 as a cutesy RPG where some fan-favorite Final Fantasy characters were represented in a chibi style. Square Enix has just released a bunch of new screenshots for the game, showing off new enemies, heroes, and mirages. Head inside to check them out!

It's been a long time since the Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter officially opened, and after multiple delays we finally have a release date of June 21st. Developer Comcept recently sent out the final platform survey, giving backers the chance to reserve the game on the platform of their choice. The deadline for filling out the survey has come and gone, but Comcept decided to extend it until June 1st, 11:59 PM Pacific Time, as over 13,000 backers (myself included) still haven't designated their preferred platform. Any backers who have not chosen their preferred platform by the deadline will be given a Steam key and DRM-free PC download by default.

Kickstarter project Mighty No. 9 generated an incredible amount of hype (and funding) three years ago, but a long wait made longer by multiple delays (when the base game was said to be complete over a year ago) has left a bad taste in the mouth of fans and backers. Unfortunately, faith in the game waned even further when publisher Deep Silver released a new trailer full of cheesy dialogue, bad jokes, and unconvincing explosions.

It looks like potential customers aren't the only ones disappointed with the new trailer, as Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu has taken to Twitter to criticize it. Inti Creates co-developed the game with Comcept (director Keiji Inafune's team), but Deep Silver is publishing, and that apparently includes handling the trailers. After watching the trailer, Aizu tweeted out that it was "crappy" and "unforgivable," specifically calling out Deep Silver. Hopefully this means that the trailer isn't representative of the spirit of the actual game.

The popular RPG series Dragon Quest turns 30 years old today, and publisher Square Enix is in celebration mode! As part of the festivities, they have announced that Dragon Quest Builders is coming to North America and Europe. The top-selling spin-off game blends the world and RPG elements of Dragon Quest with block-building mechanics that will make Minecraft fans feel right at home. You'll be able to buy it on PlayStation 4 (in stores) and Vita (digital only) this October. In the meantime, Square Enix has released a new trailer to accompany the localization announcement, and you can check it out by clicking below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was one of the biggest movies in the world last year, and soon it will be the latest in the lineup of popular LEGO video games. Releasing on June 28th, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens lends the constructive fun of LEGOs to the iconic characters and settings of Star Wars, and it will even include new story information that wasn't in the movie! Warner Bros. recently kicked off a new series of character vignettes with a video that starred Poe Dameron, and today they're back with a new video that focuses on Stormtrooper-turned-rebel Finn. You can check it out by clicking below!

It's been a long time in the making with multiple delays along the way, but Mighty No. 9 finally has a (hopefully) concrete release date of July 21st. Developed by Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept, Mighty No. 9 aims to be a worthy spiritual successor to the Blue Bomber's series. Ahead of its release next month, publisher Deep Silver has released a new "Masterclass" trailer that focuses on the game's dash mechanics, combos, and upgrade system.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a pretty disappointing week overall. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End retained the top spot for the week (despite selling only just over 20,000 units), and no new titles were able to break 10,000 sales. DOOM debuted at number seven with just over 6,000 sales, and Battleborn came in eleventh place with just over 5,000.

Hardware sales were equally disappointing this week, as nearly every console sold less than the previous week. In fact, there wasn't a single console that managed to sell 20,000 units this week. PlayStation 4 retained its spot atop the charts with 18,430 units sold for the week. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below.

Popular Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has released its latest batch of review scores, and there were two big performers this week. As always, Famitsu had four different editors review each game, assigning them a 1-10 score for a highest possible score of 40 points. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End from Sony and Dragon Quest Heroes II from Square Enix were this week's top performers, pulling in three 10/10 review scores and one 9/10 review score each, giving them both a near-perfect score of 39/40. You can check out the full list of Famitsu scores from the week by clicking below.

For the last decade, NIS America published games that were made by Atlus in Europe. However, the two companies ended their relationship with each other in late April, leaving many people in Europe wondering if they would be able to play upcoming Atlus titles. Recently, SEGA Senior Vice President of commercial publishing John Clark stated that the company would be "very interested" in publishing future games from Atlus. Hit the jump for more details!

After the PlayStation Network was hacked at the beginning of the year, Sony has been running regular maintenance work on the service. The company has announced that the Network will be taken offline again on Wednesday next week (May 25th). The maintenance will last for two hours from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM PST, but you'll still be able to sign into your account and play games. However, you won't be able to access the PlayStation Store, Account Management, or PlayStation Video.

Back in February we learned that blockbuster film Star Wars: The Force Awakens is getting its own LEGO game. The upcoming game (which launches on June 28th) will allow players to experience the action and story of the movie in a way only the LEGO games can, while also expanding on the story with new scenes that weren't in the film. Warner Bros. kicked off a new series of character vignettes today with a trailer focusing on hotshot pilot Poe Dameron. You can check it out by clicking below!
