In the UK, PS4 sales tripled, jumping a rather impressive 204 per cent week over week. 65 per cent of those sales came courtesy of the new Pro model.

Live Streaming Gets a Lot of Love on PS4 Pro

Sharing is caring

There are many reasons to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 Pro, but if you're someone who enjoys hosting live streams, then here's another: Sony's supercharged system enables you to stream in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second – a sizeable leap from the 720p cap of the original model.

PS4 Has Plenty for Families This Christmas

All together now

It's not often you get a chance to really study how families play games. This week I got to do just that with the help of Sony. We took a PlayStation 4 and some top picks for family games into a real family with four boys. From the games we tried a bunch came out on top, but as much as the specifics of what worked and what...

PS4 Exclusive Gravity Rush 2 Has Gone Gold

But it's not releasing until next year

In a way, news that Gravity Rush 2 has gone gold so early is kind of sad. The game, which was originally due in early December, was clearly on track – but delays to the likes of Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian mean that it's been pushed back. The title will no

PS4 Slumps to Yet Another NPD Defeat in October

Mind the gap

After years of being on top, the PlayStation 4 has now slumped to its fourth NPD defeat in a row – a trend that would probably be worrying Sony if its install base wasn't growing at an accelerated rate globally. The console lost the monthly US hardware contest for October, meaning that it's been a little while since the Japanese...

Sony Preps Epic Publisher and Developer Lineup for PSX 2016

Big names

Sony's annual PlayStation Experience event was only announced a few weeks ago, but it's already on top of us like… Like… Nah, that's not fit for a family site.

Can PS4 Pro Bring Knack Back from the Brink?

Cerny not

Sony's support for the PlayStation 4 Pro can be described as "scattershot" at best. It's one of the system's biggest shortcomings right now; while games undoubtedly look and run better on the brand new box, not enough titles take advantage of it yet. This will change as we lurch into 2017 and support becomes mandatory, but right now,...
