The Biggest Video Game News Stories of 2013 (So Far)

Next gen, new gen, and the fight for the future of your living room.

At E3 in June Sony and Microsoft squared off again in the continuation of the newly manufactured console wars. 

The Xbox One received a good dose of Internet hate after announcing, and then very quickly redacting, policies that would not let users share or lend games. Sony had a PR buffet on Microsoft’s ill announcement and trolled the hell out of their sharing policy while it lasted. Sony’s own PlayStation 4 showed off some great titles and a long list of exclusives. It's still way too soon to see which console will end up 'winning' the holiday season. 

And while not a console at all, the Oculus Rift has us all rubbing our hands and rocking back and forth in a fugue state at the prospect of playing all of our old favorites again  in an enhanced virtual reality state. For those who haven’t watched hours of people cat-pawing at empty space, and navigating acid-trip inspired universes, the Oculus Rift  is something that we would love to see supported by any of the major consoles.
