Now, the video is back up again, right around Avengers: Infinity War's theatrical release. If you pre-order Insomniac's PS4 exclusive, you'll gain early access to the...

    According to a recent Japanese stream, a substantial balance patch will soon be released for Dragon Ball FighterZ.

    A new system software update is now available for your PlayStation 4, and it's one with a bit of an odd name -- 5.53-01.

What's strange is that, normally, new updates simply increase the version number by .01. Also, we...
