PS4, Xbox One, Switch Games News: July 4 Updates, Announcements, Trailers and More (Pic: Daily Star)
Video Games news is constant and never slows down, not for a single day. Whether you own a PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch owner it's hard to keep up.
Even for us, people who are actively entrenched in gaming news 24/7, it's hard to keep on top of everything.
So, a week or two back we tried something different with a daily blog that attempted to keep up with all the latest breaking news and announcements.
At the time we told you that we hoped to bring you more news to the site, not less, whilst also shining a light on some news for smaller, niche titles alongside other bits we simply couldn't find time to cover alongside everything else we do (hey, we did say there's a lot!).
We were happy with what we achieved from that test day, so we're giving it another go today.
The content we include might be closer to press releases than our usual gaming input and pub talk patter.
However, as we say (hopefully) it means getting more news to you.
We'll keep updating the page with all the news we can, but to kick off the day, here's three bite sized pieces of news from Wednesday, July 3rd you may have missed, but should certainly not overlook.
Enjoy the news – Daily Star's Gaming Team
