It looks like we finally escaped the post E3 doldrums! First up this week, Rainbow Six Siege is getting an awesome sounding cowboy mode that runs through July 16th and you can get free gear just by logging in! Because of a new deal with the Epic Store, Shenmue 3 backers won’t be getting a Steam key for a year post launch (but you can always switch to the PS4 if you want). If you bought a new video card in the last month or two you are not going to be happy with today’s surprise launch from Nvidia. Setup your Twitch Prime and link your Rockstar account to get free Red Dead 2 Online and GTA Online rewards. EA Access if finally coming to Playstation on July 24th. Finally, it appears that gamers are really into Farming Simulator 2019. Like, really, really into Farming Simulator 2019.

How do you feel about companies using customer feedback to improve their products in media / gaming industry?
