Daily Video Game News for Monday, July 3rd 2017

Hello and welcome to Daily Video Game News (working title)! This is a segment that will be posted every Monday through Friday and will go over all of the important gaming news topics each day. The best part, if there happens to be a breaking story that goes live over the weekend, then I will make sure that news gets posted here for you all as well!

Each post will contain the news stories within video and text form (depending on your viewing preference). Please note that this is the very first post and therefore things will need to be worked on as this progresses day by day. If you have any suggested then please leave a comment within this post or on the YouTube video.

Next up is the astounding success that is Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Crash has officially become the best selling console exclusive in the UK within the year 2017, beating out Horizon Zero Dawn. Congratulations to all those involved in the creation of such a fan loved package. I am excited to give the games a shot myself.
