Video Game News: PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch Latest Updates – June 21

There’s loads of video game news every single day. Whether you’re 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 we’re going to try something different with a daily blog that tries to keep up.

Sometimes we might get a bit knackered and lag behind, but the hope is that we can bring you more news to the site, not less.

Likewise, we’re hoping that this will allow us to shine a light on some news for smaller or more niche titles that we otherwise don’t get too all that often.

That’s our sell. Today’s something of a test run, a beta if you will. Thankfully we’re not charging you early access for this, but let us know in the comments what you thin and if there’s anything else you’d like to see day-to-day.

Enjoy the news – Daily Star’s Gaming Team
