Contest: Win a Titan One cross-compatibility gaming device! photo
Contest: Win a Titan One cross-compatibility gaming device!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Winners will be announced soon.]

Our friends at ConsoleTuner have given us five of their new Titan One cross-compatibility devices to hand out to the Destructoid community!

These things are incredibly awesome. Compatible with the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, they are the ultimate solution for the problem of not being able to use your favorite controller on every console. And because of the ability to swap button layouts, gamers can use this to adjust their controllers to their personal tastes (something especially important to you southpaw gamers). Plus, there's the GamePack feature: with a GamePack loaded, you get all the cool features that modded controllers can provide, without having to modify your controller and void your warranty.

For a chance to win one of these cool devices for yourself, just leave a comment below! Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Friday at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone with a US shipping address.

Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). Try us out!

The Last of Us Remastered PS4 bundle spotted

No official announcement out of Sony, but it seems there's a PlayStation 4 bundle featuring The Last of Us Remastered on the way. Amazon France lists the package for release on July 30, 2014. This upgraded version of The Last of Us may not be an all-new game, but it's a meaningful exclusive for PlayStation. More than enough to warrant a bundle, in other words.

The three Oculus Rift games at E3 are all amazing photo
The three Oculus Rift games at E3 are all amazing
by Brett Makedonski

I've had a chance to check out quite a few games on Oculus Rift. From Japanese indie projects at BitSummit to the latest build of EVE Valkyrie, I've gotten a good look at the progress of developing virtual reality games from both large and tiny teams. Having seen the evolution of the technology, it's easy to recognize that it's getting significantly better, and, it's all happening very quickly.

Meeting with Oculus VR at E3, I had the opportunity to demo three titles I hadn't seen yet -- Superhot, Lucky's Tale, and Alien: Isolation. All were vastly different from one another, but each was damn impressive.
