Oh Look, It's a Nintendo PlayStation Console

You what

Fridays are usually pretty quiet when it comes to games journalism, probably because everyone just wants to start the weekend early and, actually, you know, play some video games for once. Apparently, though, a poster over on ASSEMbler didn't get the memo, as they've revealed the existence of an actual Nintendo PlayStation console that...

News: PlayStation Vita Passes 4 Million Units in Japan

PlayStation Vita Passes 4 Million Units in Japan

Small consolation

There's been very little cause for PlayStation Vita owners to celebrate of late, but Sony's diminutive device has just hit a major milestone in Japan, crossing the 4,000,000 unit threshold. This number takes into account both handheld and PlayStation TV sales, but seeing as they're both built upon the same hardware, we reckon...

The Lighter PS4 Also Has a Few Other Changes

Buttons, bulbs, and more

A revised PlayStation 4 is set to launch later this month in Japan, which seems designed to bring production costs down. In addition to being a little lighter and a teensy bit less power hungry, the device also comes with a few other minor alterations – including mechanical buttons, which means that you'll no longer...

E3 2015: Almost Half PS4 Owners Never Had a PS3

Almost Half PS4 Owners Never Had a PS3

Changing minds

At this point, we can probably all accept that the PlayStation 3 had problems. It was ultimately a great console, don't get us wrong – but Sony really misfired with the architecture and price, prompting it to lose ground against a very aggressive Xbox 360. With the PlayStation 4, however, the Japanese giant's got back to its...

News: Sony: PlayStation Vita Is a Legacy Platform

Sony: PlayStation Vita Is a Legacy Platform

Gulp

It's perhaps an indictment of the current state of the PlayStation Vita in the Western world that we haven't really found the need to write an update on the device for some time. While there was hope of the format's fortunes turning around 18 or so months ago, the platform's fate has remained unchanged for a while now. And while it continues...

PS4 Sales Pass 2 Million Units in the UK

Celebrate good times

Sales of the PlayStation 4 have now surpassed a staggering two million units in the UK, according to a report published by MCV. The console hit the one million units milestone in the region shortly before the holiday rush last year, which means that it's effectively doubled its tally in record time. In fact, the system's selling...

This Bloodborne PS4 Is Sadly Not for Sale

But it should be

There are so many personalised PlayStation 4s available in Japan that it's hard to keep count, but this Bloodborne console is a real museum piece. Sony was flaunting the one-of-a-kind system in Japan earlier today, where it held a special event for From Software's forthcoming foray. The game's now gone gold, by the way...

Metal Gear Solid V Will Get Its Own Themed PlayStation 4, and It's a Beauty

Now in bionic arm red

Well, aside from editor Sammy Barker, who was reportedly sick in his mouth at the sight of it, we reckon that this themed PlayStation 4 is one of the best designs out there. Coinciding with the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Asian territories can look forward to a multicoloured console which comes bundled with...

These Hyperdimension Neptunia VII PS4s Are an Otaku's Dream

Noire way

There are no shortage of custom PlayStation 4 bundles in Japan, but that's not stopping Sony from preparing another trio of personalised platforms in order to tie in to the forthcoming Hyperdimension Neptunia VII. Due out on 23rd April in the Land of the Rising Sun, the Purple, Noire, and Goddess options will cost ¥41,980 ($352) apiece,...
