When it was revealed months ago, the PlayStation 4's actual hardware design was nowhere to be found. They showed us the new controller and several new games, but we never actually saw the console itself. Well, wait no longer, because to the left is depicted the console's official design, revealed today at Sony's E3 2013 press conference. Take a look!

As the slew of news comes out of the Sony E3 press conference, a new special PlayStation 3 bundle has been announced. The bundle costs $300.00 USD, comes with a copy of Grand Theft Auto V, the console itself, and a unique headset with a GTAV artistic theme.

This is one of many PlayStation 3 bundles that have come out over the years, although it seems like a safe bet that this is most likely to be the last, considering the impending release of the PlayStation 4.

Stay tuned as we update with further information.

Sony has announced new titles coming to Vita, ranging from HD versions of older games to portable ports of new games to new parts of current games.

The PlayStation Vita will be receiving Final Fantasy X-1 and Final Fantasy X-2, as well as the God of War HD Collection, which includes the first two entries of the series. Dead Nation and Flower are also coming to the system.

In addition, the next episode of Telltale's critically acclaimed series The Walking Dead will also come to Vita. 400 Days Later is the next chapter of the episodic experience, so stay tuned for more information on that.

The PlayStation Vita is starting to get the software it needs. Hopefully we'll see the system pick up sales soon.

In the wake of a massive E3 conference, Electronic Arts has confirmed that the newest FIFA will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Wii.

That's it. Did you expect another letter? It's just the Wii. There is no U at the end.

FIFA 14 launches on September 24th in North America and worldwide on September 27th. You can see the details on the game unveiled at E3 right here.

Update: We have the video of the reveal now!

Ubisoft, at their E3 press conference today, announced a new television/video game hybrid: Rabbids Invasion. Partnered with Nickelodeon, this game is supposed to be like playing a television show. Microsoft is at the forefront of this new experiment, with a focus being on the Xbox One experience of the game, although it will be available for other devices as well.

The goal is to bring the living room to life, especially for children watching and wanting to take part in the action. As part of this new experience, viewers can dance, solve puzzles, and participate in numerous other ways to move the story forward. This is definitely a neat concept and it will be interesting to see how well it is implemented.

Update: Both trailers are available now! Take a look!

Assassin's Creed showed up at E3 again this year! It has become an annual tradition to show a CG trailer for the latest Assassin's Creed, and that is not broken for Black Flag. The new CG trailer shows our latest Assassin adventuring on the deep blue sea, kicking ass and taking names.

We also got a second trailer, completely made from in-game footage. The bits and pieces are cut to look cinematic, but it is impressive to see what Black Flag is capable of.

It was stated that Black Flag was to be the "most ambitious open world game ever made." We'll see if they can follow through on that ambition.

Check back later for both trailers.

Update: We now have the reveal trailer!

Ubisoft announced a new racing game headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in early 2014. Entitled The Crew, it promises to elevate the genre to new heights through a combination of advanced world building not typically seen in racing games and abundant new social features.

The game features a robust "world map" based on the entire United States, much larger than what is considered "doable" on current generation platforms (think Forza Horizon but significantly bigger). Cooperative play sees a major boost in importance, in which players can instantly drop in and out of each other's games and form teams to take down a criminal organization - leading to massive car chase sequences.

In addition, The Crew gives players the ability to completely customize every aspect of their car - from performance-based parts like engines and brakes to cosmetic touches. This customization feature is accessible from tablets and smartphone devices.

Stay tuned for further updates and footage when it hits the net.

Update: We have the trailer for both games now!

Ubisoft has announced Trials Frontier and Trials Fusion, coming to mobile devices and consoles respectively. Trials Fusion will be making its way to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PC. Both versions can interact with each other in some way. Not much else is known about the titles, except that you can end up very high in the air. I'm not gonna try that at home.

What do you think about the reveal? Do you find it interesting? Share.

Update: the trailer has been added!

A trailer for Just Dance 2014 was shown at Ubisoft's E3 Press Conference. The game, which was leaked on the Xbox Live Marketplace prior to the event, will include a six-player dancing mode, an "On-Stage" mode, a DJ-mode that allows you to modify the music mid-dance, and a Wii U-specific feature known as Party Master, which features the use of the Gamepad.

The game will be available for all platforms, both current-gen and next-gen, this coming October.

"It's all about stealing from your neighbor and protecting your pile of loot" -- Ubisoft E3 2013 Press Conference

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is all about, as you might have guessed, loot and stealing, and it's opening up for a closed beta soon. According to the Ubisoft speaker, you can check out the game's website for that. The trailer shown for the game featured loads of laughs, mostly coming from the slapstick antics of the featured knight.

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot will be releasing on PC at a later date.

Update: the trailer is now inside!

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the sixth entry in the Splinter Cell series, and it's coming awfully soon. The game releases in late August of this year!

To give the game a final E3 push, Ubisoft has unveiled a brand new trailer. This new look at the adventure focuses on story elements dealing with the Blacklist terrorist group. We also get a look at the return of Spies vs. Mercenaries multiplayer mode.

We'll have the trailer posted as soon as it's available!

Update: We have the trailer inside!

At Ubisoft's E3 press conference today, Rocksmith 2014 Edition was announced. Rocksmith is an instrument-playing game where real instruments are used to play, unlike games such as Guitar Hero. A major difference between this edition and the previous Rocksmith is the all-new "Session Mode" which promises increased game play experiences.

Rocksmith 2014 Edition is set to be released in October and is said by Ubisoft to be the "fastest way to learn guitar." I guess we will have to see come October.

"We've created a house of cards, remove just one and everything falls apart" -- Teaser Trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division

In development by Massive Entertainment, Tom Clancy's The Division is set in a near-future where we no longer understand how to control our own economic system due to its intense complexity. A pandemic is also on the rise, and the United States government is set to deploy Directive 51, a plan to hopefully save mankind.

Tom Clancy's The Division will feature some tablet functionality, and will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Game play-wise, it's a third-person MMO shooter set in an open world based on New York City. Based on the game play footage shown, we can conclude that there will be a cover aspect to the shooting, as well as some RPG elements. Aesthetically, the game is in the common dark-realism style similar to that of many modern shooters.

Check out both the game play and teaser trailers for Tom Clancy's The Division after the jump!

Ubisoft finally decided to advertise South Park: The Stick of Truth during E3 with a new trailer! The trailer shows off what I can guess is going to be the game's "dragon shout" mechanics known as farts. The only one shown is called "the Nagasaki".

So, on top of turn based Mario RPG style combat, class changing, and -- from what I have read -- different paths to take throughout the game, we have powerful fart moves. Any thoughts? Wish more was shown? I'm still excited for the game, but I personally wish there was more shown. The game will be released "this holiday season...or some holiday season, hopefully kinda soon," as Cartman puts it.

Apple has released a trailer for iOS 7, boasting of the new system's easy multitasking capabilities, sleek look and feel, and new way to easily send photos to those standing close to you.

Announced back in April, Apple has officially released the commercial for the new generation of iPhone interfaces. Whether you are scrolling through songs, photos, contacts, or the world wide web, iOS 7 offers a transparent covering and side scroll options to easily access everything on the phone.
