  • News Sony: Reclaiming Japanese Gamers Is a Focus for Us

    The PS4 is showing some "upward swing," says Yoshida

    Numbers don't lie: the demand for video games and video game consoles in Japan has dropped significantly over the past few years. But while much of the market is turning its attention to the mobile industry, Sony is trying to breathe life into the PlayStation 4 with new games. That's what...

  • News 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...

  • News The New PlayStation 4's Already Out in Japan

    Fast movers

    Sony's a fast worker, isn't it? The revised PlayStation 4 – which is a teensy bit lighter and a little less power hungry – was only announced a couple of days ago, but it's already on sale in Japan right now. The ever eagle-eyed DualShockers spotted various product lis

  • News 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...

  • News Lighter, Eco-Friendly PS4 Hardware Launches This Month

    1TB model arrives in Europe on 15th July

    E3 2015 is over, but the announcements aren't slowing. Sony confirmed earlier today that it will be releasing a new iteration of the PlayStation 4 in Japan later this month, which will eventually be rolled out globally at an undisclosed time. The revision is an upgrade of the original model, weighing 10 per...

  • E3 2015 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 The Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 Is Particularly Pretty

    Slick in silver

    Some of the official custom PlayStation 4 consoles have been pretty bad if you ask this author, but the Batman: Arkham Knight one bucks that trend. Sony's deployed an unboxing for the brand new bundle, and while it's a little overproduced, it should sell you on the system if you've been sitting indecisively on the fence. We've...

  • News Sony's Readying a 1TB PlayStation 4 Model

    Room to breathe

    Well, here's one of your E3 announcements outed early. The always eagle-eyed editors over at DualShockers have uncovered certification documents for two updated PlayStation 4 models – and one of the

  • News 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...

  • News The Gods Will Look Favourably Upon This God of War III PS4 Bundle

    Olympus awaits

    Sony's love affair with PlayStation 4 bundles knows no bounds, as a God of War III Remastered set has popped up on Amazon France. According to the listing – which is legit, as far as we can tell – the 500GB system and game will sell for €429.99 (~$486). That price conversion looks pretty steep – but, er, that's Europe for...

  • News 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...

  • News Your PS Vita Is More Powerful Than Ever Before

    Sony unlocks extra memory

    PlayStation Vita firmware update v3.50 seemed like a bit of a non-event for Sony's handheld format, removing more features than it added. However, as part of a presentation at the Unite Tokyo 2015 event – as spotted and translated by NeoGAF member Parakeetman – the platform holder revealed that the new patch enables...

  • News Will the PS4 Get a Price Cut Any Time Soon?

    Probably not just yet

    As we know, the PlayStation 4 is selling extraordinarily well – but things are even more positive for Sony behind closed doors. Last year, the platform holder noted that it had designed its next-gen device to be much more price competitive than the PlayStation 3, and it sounds like it’s feeling the fruits of that labour...
