We Hope Street Fighter V's Story Mode Is as Good as Its Trailer

Rise up

Street Fighter V's finally getting some dedicated single player content tomorrow in the form of a free downloadable story mode, and judging from its official trailer, it actually looks pretty good.

PlayStation 4 mod support for Fallout 4 has fallen foul of another setback today as Bethesda has revealed that the incoming mods beta on Sony's console has been delayed.

The PlayStation 4 is suffering from a real software drought in Japan right now, but Sony's latest console just refuses to budge from the top of the hardware charts.
