Fortune's fool

The console wars may be awash with warriors angrily biting their thumbs, but the word star-cross'd springs to mind when observing the latest social media fad.

Hey, who remembers DUST 514? The massively multiplayer online PlayStation 3 shooter was meant to be a pretty big deal back before it launched in 2013, but the free-to-play title never really found its wings. The game ties into popular PC release EVE Online, with its ground battles having an impact on the intergalactic adventure with which is...

Almost Every EA Game Is Discounted In New European PSN Sale

Star Wars Battlefront, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and more

While it's nice that Europe's getting its own wave of PlayStation Store discounts starting today, it's a shame that it doesn't hold a candle to North America's latest sale, which boasts a very impressive amount of slashed software. Nevertheless, the Old World's deals certainly aren't...

Opinion: Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Firewatch's Paltry Five Trophies Prove That the System Needs Fixing

Platinum problems

Let's get one thing straight: Trophies are the least important thing when it comes to appraising a game. We'd recommend an amazing title even if it had no pots, because the act of actually playing a release is more important than the system-wide meta-game that surrounds it. Having said that, Trophies are an essential part of the...

Hideo Kojima's Getting Poetic Over His PlayStation Tour

"I will continue creating cutting-edge games"

We're going to get mutilated by Metal Gear fans, but we've always found the writing in the series to be convoluted and heavy-handed.

Is PlayStation Right to Switch Focus to the West?

Emigrating overseas

The humble beginnings of PlayStation are well documented: Ken Kutaragi believed that Sony should get into the console business so strongly that he began developing the firm's first format behind his employer's back. The board didn't back him, but CEO Norio Ohga saw the potential – and he sent the famously hot-headed engineer...

Finally, We Can Compare PS4 and Xbox One Sales

Sony's way out in the lead

Microsoft stopped reporting Xbox One hardware sales recently, suggesting that its Monthly Active Users metric is more important than its flagship format's install base.

Company tries to trademark YouTube term

Sony, why?! The early success of the PlayStation 4 can be assigned to the feel-good factor that the Japanese giant built around the format: the gamer-centric marketing, the agreeable policies, the Jack Tretton smackdown – so why the heck is the company jeapordising that by trying to trademark the popular...
