PlayStation exec Jim Ryan had some unsettling words for indie games on the PlayStation platform. Ryan saying that "It was just good to talk about in 2013/2014. It is less relevant now. We have VR to talk about now, for example". What does that really mean? Is there some truth into what Ryan is saying? Has Sony and PlayStation moved away from indies to take bigger risks with bigger games, is that truly a bad thing? Lastly where is the future of indies on PlayStations platforms. Poli Games host, Joseph, attempts to find those answers.

it seems that Atari, is considering reentering the modern console market after more then 25 years. People are really excited for this console. But, Poli Games host Joseph, explains that with the monopoly and stranglehold that PlayStation and Microsoft have on the gaming industry, mixed with how expensive it is to create games, it might be best for Atari to sit this one out. Big and better companies have tried and fail. maybe we should hold are breath on an Atari console.
It's been a bad week for Sony, in terms of PR. With the announcement of cross play on Minecraft and Rocket League, from Microsoft and Nintendo. Sony, has decided against the idea for the protection of its user base. Poli games host, Joseph talks about how the the Utopian idea of cross play, and the very real outcomes of it, if it was a reality why Sony's reluctance on the idea isn't problematic or anti consumer, but rather not in their interests as a company, that's just fine.

All the Major conferences from EA, Microsoft, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Sony, and Nintendo are over so you know what that means? Articles from ever which direction will start coming out declaring how company A won over company B and how company C just doesnt get it. Instead of enjy the conferences for what they are, or celebrating games, we as gamers draw lines in the sand declaring our company beat your company. Instead of enjoying games in general. Who's the real winners? The publications making these articles and heres why.
The conferences are over and all the games are here! Poli Games host, Joseph talks about what games caught his eye at E3. The only rules are the games on the list must at least have an expected release window. So no Spiderman or Anthem here. Only Holiday 2017 or Early 2018 games, to make things interesting.
Nintendo save E3 from being a bore this year. Who would of thought that the held the surprises needed that so many other conferences lacked. Poli Games host Joseph, talks about what made the conference something really special. Will this be the thing the help Nintendo build up the hype for the Switch.

Unpopular opinion, though the Playstation conference was good, why is it that Poli Games host Joseph, feels slightly disappointing? It seems like previous Playstation E3 events have spoiled us as gamers. It seems Sony spoiled the chance at making the last pitch for the Playstation 4 Pro or the Xbox One X. Seems like this years E3 has been a bit on the safe side, and expected Sony to take that risk.
This maybe an unpopular opinion, but Ubisoft conferences the past few years have been a bit too much. To the point went they showed some great games, but had so much cheesey acts, that no one took them seriously. This E3 they dial back the cringe to deliver something more personal and special. From games like Mario and Rabbids Battle Kingdom, The Crew 2, Far Cry 5, Skulls and Bones, and lastly, to Beyond Good and Evil. Developers got on stage rather then some local talent to talk about the one thing we're all here for, games.
Bethesda's conference might not have been the best conference at this year's E3. Predictable announcements of Evil Within 2, and Wolfenstein 2. But, there was something that make this conference great, that took away the mechanical and corporate feeling, that was the EA Play event. Here's what the industry can learn from the Bethesda conference.

It seems Microsoft and Sony both have some controversial comments, when it comes to backwards compatibility. Microsoft is having a back and forth with gaming sites like, Artechnica for release information that states only 1.5% of Xbox One gamers play their old 360 games. At the same time Sony seems to be taking some flack for the lack of the backwards compatible feature. But, they're all missing the point when it comes to this issue. It all comes down to consumer freedom.
We are in the final days before Microsoft reveals it's plan and roadmap for the Xbox brand. That plan circles around the Xbox Scorpio and its power. Microsoft for over a year has boasted it's power. Now at E3 Microsoft needs to talk about on price, and focus on why one needs to upgrade or pick up this console. That price will overall dictate the success or lack of success the Scorpio will have if the price is right. What price is the best price for the Xbox Scorpio?
Pokemon Direct is out, and it has come with mix feelings, many Pokemon gamers and Nintendo gamers alike hope and some even expected a new Pokemon game reminiscent of the ones on 3ds for the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately that wasn't the case, and with E3 approaching so soon and people expecting a big show, can Nintendo deliver? Do we as gamers put Nintendo on a pedestal when it comes to announcements? Are we as gamers expecting to much? Poli Games host Joseph, talks about what he expects from Nintendo's E3, and how we as gamers have to come in to their show with level heads.
Playstation exec over in Europe Jim Ryan, doesn't think Backwards Compatibility is all that its cracked up to be. That its a feature everyone wants till they actually have it. But, is that right? What is the real reason as to why the PS4 lack of backwards compatibility? Because, its more then just a cell processor thats in the way of gamers playing their old PS3 collection.
E3 is upon here, which companies like EA, Ubisoft, Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo are going to show off their latest games and hardware.
