News: Sony Reduces the Price of Major PS4 Releases on NA PlayStation Store

Sony Reduces the Price of Major PS4 Releases on NA PlayStation Store

Greatest hits?

Sony's dropped the price of four major PlayStation 4 first-party releases on the PlayStation Store to $19.99, perhaps indicating that the MSRP of the must own games has changed. The discounts – to Bloodborne, DriveClub, The Last of Us Remastered, and Until Dawn – don't appear to be fuelled by some kind of promotion, so unless...

Watch Sony's E3 2016 Streams for PS4 Prizes

Avatars, themes, and more

Sony's announced its streaming schedule for E3 2016, and it's upping the ante yet again. For those who never seem to realise that the platform holder does its own Nintendo Treehouse-esque broadcasts annually, it's confirmed that it will be streaming from the PlayStation booth all week, as part of the PlayStation Live Cast...

This Modded Uncharted 4 PS4 Is Pretty Amazing

Golden

It's incredible how creative some people are when it comes to constructing modified consoles, and this Uncharted 4: A Thief's End-themed system is yet another example of that. Made by Romanian gamer Vulpe Adrian Andrei, the system employs a shirt similar to the one worn by protagonist Nathan Drake as well as leather bounding and pistole...

Japan Votes for PlayStation's Most Memorable Games

Long in the memory

Famitsu, the famous Japanese gaming magazine, is celebrating its 30th anniversary – and it's asked readers to vote for their most memorable games per console as a consequence.

Talking Point: Will Sony Announce PS4K at E3 2016?

Will Sony Announce PS4K at E3 2016?

Neo or never?

Sony doesn't really announce hardware at E3. There are exceptions: the PlayStation Move was hastily wheeled out a few years ago in reaction to the Kinect, while the ill-fated but kinda awesome PSPgo was also confirmed during one Los Angeles show. But most of its big system reveals tend to occur elsewhere: the PlayStation 4 was...

News: Swiss Retailer Lists Crash Bandicoot for PS4

Swiss Retailer Lists Crash Bandicoot for PS4

But it proves nothing

An early E3 2016 leak or a retailer responding to rumours? This could be a case of both, in all honesty. While there's real reason to believe that something is going on with the Crash Bandicoot brand, the fact that Swiss retailer Alcom has listed a new entry for the PlayStation 4 is not evidence of anything at all – the...

PS Vita Passes 5 Million Units Milestone in Japan

Celebrate good times

It may have struggled globally, but the PlayStation Vita is still pretty darn relevant in Japan, with the handheld passing the five million units milestone in the region today. The news comes courtesy of the latest Media Create report, which signalled that the portable sold 14,956 units during the period spanning 23rd May to...

Talking Point: Was Sony's E3 2015 Presser Really the Greatest Ever?

Was Sony's E3 2015 Presser Really the Greatest Ever?

Magic moments

Thinking back on it, E3 2015 was a bit of a blur. We were outrageously sceptical ahead of PlayStation's press conference, and if you go back and read our predictions, that's abundantly clear to see. We'd heard on the grapevine that Sony was going to use its media briefing to focus primarily on strategic partnerships with third-party...

Talking Point: Should Sony Leverage PS4's Japanese Game Lineup at E3 2016?

Should Sony Leverage PS4's Japanese Game Lineup at E3 2016?

East wars

E3 is a weird thing. The annual Los Angeles-based convention is attended solely by press and retail, is anticipated mostly by enthusiasts, but is by far the most "mainstream" of all of the gaming shows. Think about it: if Gamescom is eccentric European cuisine, then E3 is a hamburger and fries; if the Tokyo Game Show is Katanagatari ,...
