A sequel to Hot Wheels Unleashed will be getting released on October 19th 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch and PC. Publisher Milestone made the announcement, possibly because of the recent leak which outed the games existence.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is coming to PC in July
Sony has announced that the PS5 exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is coming to PC on July 26th. This will be the first time the series has ever been officially available on PC, so it’s a pretty big moment.
The Witcher 3 breaks 50 million copies sold
Some games just keep selling. Grand Theft Auto V is nearly a decade old at this point but it somehow continues to appear in the charts and has sold over 180 million copies, a truly mind-boggling number. It’s only surpassed by Minecraft.
Well, it seems like The Witcher 3 is also one of those rare games that just keeps going and going and going. CD Projekt RED Tweeted out that their game has now sold over 50 million copies.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is the worst reviewed game of 2023 so far
Much like the titular character himself, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum’s life has been long and tortured. Originally announced back in 2019 by, it has been delayed several times from its initially planned 2021 release. Early trailers didn’t exactly illicit an excited response from gamers which might explain why it has released today to deafening silence. Seriously, did anyone remember this was coming out? I didn’t.
The Playstation Showcase was just okay
After 600 days without a Showcase, expectations were high for Sony to show us what the next year or two is going to look like for Playstation. They’ve been fairly quiet thus far, leaving us very little to look forward to after Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Of course, hype is dangerous because it leads to dissapointment, and yet I don’t think it was unfair to be hyped for the Showcase. Many of Sony’s biggest studios haven’t released anything for a few years, so the timing was absolutely ripe for Sony to spend an hour show off exclusive after exclusive. But that isn’t what happened. Join me as I recap the Showcase and explain why I think it was underwhelming.

Bungie is making a new Marathon game for multiple platforms
Sony might own Bungie, but that doesn’t seem to be stopping Bungie from announcing its latest project for Playstation, Xbox and PC. In a rather surprising reveal during the Playstation Showcase, the legendary studio that brought us Halo and Destiny is returning to its oldest series, Marathon. This will be their first new project in a decade, so the hype is real.
10 Predictions for Today’s Playstation Showcase
Sony has been fairly quiet for a while now, and their last big Showcase was a couple of years ago. So, today’s Playstation Showcase event is their chance to knock our socks off with heaps of cool announcements, reveals and looks at everything they have coming over the next year or two.
Because it’s fun to speculate and dream about what might show up, I’ve tossed together a very quick list of 10 predictions for the show, some far more likely than others. I can’t wait to see if I get anything right, so lets just jump into it.
Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake/Remaster to be Shown Soon
The existence of a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake was first reported on by VGC back in 2021 and the news instantly got people talking. Since then various little rumours and whispers have circulated, but they’ve ramped up considerably over the past few months.
