Far Cry 4 on PS4 gets exclusive ability to invite people to multiplayer that dont even own the game.

That would excite me.
BioWare confirmed development of another Mass Effect game. No idea if it is going to be a sequel though

Big news for me is that GTA V is finally coming to PC in the fall (also coming to PS4 and XBONE)

Specifically for me, I can't sit that close to the PC monitor for long periods of time like I can sitting on my couch with a controller.

Blah blah hook up a PC to your TV and have a keyboard/mouse on a tray in front of you as you sit on the couch...

But I'm not a "hardcore FPS" gamer anyway.

The Witcher 3 is looking pretty awesome. Arkham Knight also looks sweet (although I am not crazy about the "tank" batmobile gameplay they showed).

I thought Sony's presser was pretty good. Excited for Uncharted, Destiny, and Metal Gear. Playstation Now sounds awesome (if it works). I like that they've continued the indie focus from last year.

Kinda glad I didn't go to the Sony E3 Experience in the theater last night. The giveaways weren't all that exciting from what I was told: Sony/PS Lanyard, $5 PSN voucher, Beta code for Battlefield (didn't everyone on PS4 get that?), and Alpha access to Destiny (only thing that would have interested me).
