PERSONA 5 TO COME WITH A SWEET DUALSHOCK SKIN

Here’s a nice surprise; Persona 5 will come packaged with a sweet DualShock 4 skin when it’s released. The video above showcases how to apply the skin, so be sure to give the 5 minute video a watch. Persona 5 is set to release on the PS4 on April 4th.

Pretty nifty stuff if you ask me. I wish more companies would do this… Maybe they will start a trend.

Nioh Sales Update; Game Moves Over 1 Million!

1 million copies have already been sold for the newly released PS4 exclusive, Nioh. The game has received a ton of praise in the way of reviews and the title looks to be setting the retail shelves on fire. I have yet to play the game, but that won’t stop me. Nioh has also been kind of hard to find at retail so if you see a copy, make sure you pick one up. As a thank you to players, a special suit of armor will be released with the next patch. Take a look at the armor below!

E3 2017 Open to The Public

It has been announced that this year’s big E3 show will be open to the public. An allotment of 15,000 tickets will be made available for anyone to buy on February 13th. The tickets are priced at $250, but an early bird discount that begins on February 13th means that they will only cost $150 for the time being. There will be consumer passes, media passes, and industry passes. The tickets give attendees access to the show floor, panel discussions, and other events. Sounds pretty nifty (and pricey) to us.

E3 2017 takes place from June 13-15th. What do you guys think?
