Temp scar

No one deserves to be singled out for their appearance, and Ubisoft clearly believes passionately in that sentiment.

Sony has delayed PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne by a month, presumably to avoid a showdown with fellow first-party title The Order: 1886 in February.

Assassin’s Creed Unity isn’t exactly sneaking onto the North American PlayStation Store this week – more crashing into it like a cannon ball.

PS4 Messages Significantly Improved with Firmware Update 2.02

Inbox enhancements

One of the quieter improvements implemented as part of PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00 was to the Friends List, which previously would take eons to load.
