E3 2013 - Microsoft has just one of only two McLaren P1 hybrid supercars at its E3 2013 booth. While the car is absolutely beautiful, it's hard to tell it apart from the version found in Forza 5. On the screen behind the vehicle, they have the in-game version of the P1. As you'll see in the video, telling the difference between the two is nearly impossible. Take a look for yourself:
The good news is that Forza 5 will give many the chance to experience the McLaren P1. While not in person, it looks good enough that you'll feel like you've seen one in person. We don't want to know how much Microsoft had to pay to get the P1 in person...

E3 2013 - Less than 18 hours ago, the gaming world was taken by storm when Sony's president Jack Tretton announced that the PlayStation 4 disk-based games can be freely given to friends and purchased on the used market. His exact words were "PlayStation 4 won't impose any new restrictions on used games" fast-forward by a little over half a day and the company seems to be taking a few steps back from that statement.
In an interview with Game Trailers, Tretton stated that while Sony's first party created games will not feature DRM, third-party games will be at the full control of their developers. This means that studios like EA, Activision, and others are fully allowed to prevent users from trading, sharing, or selling used games through one-time use activation keys.
"Well, I mean, we create the platform, we've certainly stated that our first-party games are not going to be doing that, but we welcome publishers and their business models to our platform," said Tretton. "The DRM decision is going to have to be answered by the third parties, it's not something we're going to control, or dictate, or mandate, or implement,"
E3 2013 - Oculus VR is kicking off their E3 experience with a major upgrade to the Oculus Rift, which now is able to display the virtual-reality world in full 1080p glory. The company has upgraded the virtual-reality headset not by creating a custom display but switching out the original non-HD display developer units received to an off-the-shelf 1080p HD display used in cell phones.
Early reports are stating that the new display makes a huge difference and the immersive world created actually feels like you're really there. The 1080p screen is actually split in half and each eye sees a 960x1080 portrait display.
Word is that the company was worried about how the switch from landscape to portrait mode might affect games but he said that there have been no issues reported. Additionally, the have not noticed any issues in with the existing games created by the 10,000 developers who now have Oculus Rift development kits.
