Sony sent gamers into a tizzy when it released the limited edition PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition console late last year. Splashed in original PSX grey with the throwback colorful PS logo, the console was full of nostalgia. All of the 12,300 units sold out instantly and began fetching insane numbers on eBay (but have recently fallen).

E3 is set to come to a close today after a week of providing us with a look at some of the newest gaming titles and hardware advancements. We’ve already detailed what Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo are planning to have in store for gamers and today we’re going to take a look at the upcoming mobile releases.

Publisher Square Enix dropped the bomb that Tomb Raider would be making an appearance with Lara Croft Go.

Sony digital game sale: Tomb Raider DE $15, Rayman Legends $20, Batman Arkham titles from $8 ea, more

Update (6/16 4:57pm): If you spend more than $100 using your PSN Wallet on PSN from now through June 23rd, you will get $15 in free credit on your account.

Following Xbox and Nintendo, Sony has kicked off its own digital sale in celebration of E3 2015. There is a wide selection of PS4, PS3, Vita and cross-buy PSN titles available.

One standout from the lot is the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for $15 (Reg. $30). This game very rarely dips below $20 for the physical version and is 50% off its usual PSN listing. Another option is Rayman Legends on PS4 (or PS3) for $20, which rarely goes for less then $25 in physical form. You’ll also find the entire Batman Arkham series starting at $8 each, all less than the current price of the physical version.

Unless you prefer the digital copy, it always a good idea to check our daily Game/Apps roundup before purchasing as you may find some titles for less. Dragon Age Inquisition is $30 Prime shipped today on Amazon, $5 less than in the PSN sale, but rarely dips below $40 otherwise.

More E3 2015:

It has already been an eventful week at E3, with Xbox, Playstation and Nintendo showing off the latest titles and hardware advances to be expected over the next 6-8 months. Microsoft made a huge splash yesterday with new games and a killer updated controller that would make even James Bond jealous.

Regardless of which side of the console wars you’re on, or if you are undecided, the Xbox One deserves a second look. Microsoft has rebounded from a tough start to the year with some killer titles coming by Christmas and has pushed itself out in front of the PlayStation 4 as a dominant streaming media player. On top of that, the deal machine has been cranking out solid discounts on some of Microsoft’s flagship bundles. Now is the time to get on board with Xbox One if you’ve been waiting… expand full story

Update (1/04 12:50pm): Oculus has now announced that pre-orders for the 3D Rift headset will go live on its official site as of January 6th at 11AM EST.

Nearly three years after Oculus introduced us to what a VR headset in the home could look like, it has now finally unveiled the version it will be taking to retail. The consumer version of the Oculus VR headset was shown-off just a short while ago at the company’s pre-E3 2015 event, where we got more information on the hardware itself, how it will be integrated with Xbox One, and what kind of content we can expect on day one. expand full story

Update (6/3 1:35pm): You can pre-order Fallout 4 on PC over at Greenman Gaming for $46.20 using code SLICKD-EALS23-OFFGMW (Reg. $60).

It’s finally here. After over 7 years of waiting, Fallout 4 is real and you can watch the debut trailer above. A 24 hour countdown clock appeared on developer Bethesda’s site a day ago, which had some skeptics thinking we were about to get a Fallout mobile title. It’s not. This is the next main entry in the franchise and will be coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Still light on details, it looks as though Ron Perlman will return, we catch a quick glimpse of the protagonist emerging from vault 111 somewhere in Boston and the Brotherhood of Steel is still making the rounds. Beyond that we will have wait for Bethesda’s E3 showing on Sunday, June 14th, where the game will be fully revealed.

And here’s a quick shot of the game’s box art (which has since been taken down) from the Fallout 4 website:
