Here's the first trailer for the movie Steven Spielberg made with the Coen brothers

It’s been three years since Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln hit theaters, and today we’re getting our first look at his new film Bridge of Spies. If that title doesn’t sound familiar right away, that’s because until recently it didn’t really exist; the movie had largely been known just as the Untitled Cold War Thriller until getting its proper name in March. It’s based on the story of James Donovan, an attorney that was brought in to negotiate the release of downed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers at the height of the Cold War.

While the film pairs up Spielberg with Tom Hanks once again, it’s another creative collaboration that really stands out here. Joel and Ethan Coen, who have been writing and directing their own singular films like No…

New Witcher 3 PS4 and PC Patch Out Now, Xbox One Coming Later

Gamers looking to sink some time into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt this weekend were given some good news today, as CD Projekt Red is now rolling out the game’s next patch. This update should fix the XP bug, increase the size of the hard-to-read menu text, and make various other changes and improvements.

According to online reports, the patch is rolling out now on PlayStation 4 and PC. It remains to be seen when the Xbox One version of the patch will arrive.

CD Projekt Red has yet to officially announce the availability of the new patch, which is 1.05 on PC and 1.04 on consoles, so we don’t have the final patch notes just yet. Those should be available soon.

Preliminary patch notes, which might not resemble the final changelog, are available here. When the final patch notes come in, we’ll update this post accordingly.

In other recent Witcher 3 news, Sony has confirmed that the open-world RPG was the top-selling PS4 title on the PlayStation Network in May.

Don't buy a Steam Machine

The lines are blurring between gaming PCs and traditional consoles. Valve’s Steam Machines, gaming PCs designed to express the best of both worlds, are ostensibly the prototype for this awesome future, and they’re now available for preorder. Too bad they’re not something you should buy — yet.

Project Cars Sells 1 Million Copies

Need for Speed Shift developer Slightly Mad’s new racing game Project Cars is off to a hot start.

Publisher Bandai Namco on Friday announced that the game, released in early May, has reached more than 1 million units sold across the world.

“To now stand here having reached over a million players in such a short time really justifies the work both the team and the community have done over the years and solidifies Project Cars’ future as the multi-platform racing experience of choice for fans around the world,” Slightly Mad studio head Ian Bell said. “And we’ll be talking more about that future very, very soon.”

Project Cars is currently available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. A Wii U version of the game is also in development, but it may never be released on that platform. Instead, Slightly Mad recently said it is looking at Nintendo’s new console, codenamed NX, as a potential platform for it.

Microsoft's Skype for Web beta now open to everyone in the US and UK

Microsoft is opening up access to its Skype for Web beta to everyone in the United States and UK today, making it easier to connect to the audio and video calling service. You won’t be able to receive calls this way without being logged into Skype’s website, but if you’re someone who uses the smartphone apps more frequently than their desktop counterparts, this could prove a convenient option. Skype for Web works across Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. (And you can expect full Microsoft Edge support when Windows 10 launches on July 29th. You’ll need to install a plugin before you’re able to make calls, which could prove a hassle on public computers, but it’s still faster than setting up a whole desktop app. Microsoft says…

Witcher 3 the Best-Selling PS4 Game on PSN in May, More Top-Sellers Revealed

Sony on Friday released PlayStation Network sales charts for May, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Destiny DLC racing to the top for PlayStation 4 games and DLC.

For PlayStation 3, the Mass Effect Trilogy took the top spot, which isn’t terribly surprising when you consider the game was on sale in May for under $5.

Meanwhile, the top-selling PlayStation Vita game was Freedom Wars, another game that was heavily discounted during the month.

In terms of DLC, Destiny’s House of Wolves expansion, which was released May 19, was the top-selling add-on across PS4 and PS3. Again, not such a big surprise, considering Sony has been treating Destiny like a first-party game.

Another standout is The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, which was the top-selling PlayStation Classic title for May. The hard-to-find Mega Man game was previously selling for as much as $300 on eBay, though Capcom did everyone a favor and released it last month on PSN for $6.

Check out the PSN top-selling charts for May below. These lists are for North America. For Europe’s top-selling games, head here.

Tennis greats Andy Samberg and Kit Harington will face off in HBO's 7 Days in Hell

McEnroe versus Borg. Nadal versus Federer. These are some of the greatest tennis matches of all time. But what if Andy Samberg were to take on Jon Snow, the Bastard of Winterfell, for seven days straight? HBO is exploring that ridiculous possibility in its new mockumentary 7 Days in Hell. Samberg and Harington play Aaron Williams and Charles Poole, respectively, two tennis legends locked in what might be the greatest fake tennis match the world has never actually seen. 7 Days in Hell premieres on July 11th.
