Just in time for Call of Duty

While many have been eager to suggest that Sony won’t compete with the Xbox One’s temporary price drop in the United States, we noted in a recent feature that it’s been frequently adjusting the cost of the PlayStation 4 in the UK to keep its nose in front. Indeed, while the system hasn’t ever received any...

Grind and punishment

Easily one of the PlayStation Vita's most anticipated titles, Freedom Wars plops you into a dystopian future that's full of typically stylish teens and giant mechanical beasts, and tasks you with whittling down a one million year sentence of service to your not-so-lovely community.

Sony's Still Bleeding Money, But PS4's in Beast Mode

Marathon sprint

The reason behind Microsoft’s temporary Xbox One price drop is looking clearer by the minute: Sony has now shipped 13.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide – and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. The company added 3.3 million units to the system’s total tally in the quarter spanning July to September, boosting game...

Slick PS4 Shooter Resogun Will Save the Last Humans on Vita

System seller

Housemarque’s throwback arcade shooter Resogun is so good that we’d quite like to have a playable version augmented into our eyelids, but seeing as that’s not physically possible, we’ll settle for a PlayStation Vita version instead. Fortunately, it sounds like the Finnish indie is working on just that, assuming that comments...

Have No Fear, The Order: 1886's Gameplay Demo Is 'Ancient'

Wipe away that dust

It may have been somewhat obvious, but that gameplay demo of The Order: 1886 that we see pop up every time Sony wants to show off the game is "ancient", according to Ready at Dawn CTO Andrea Pessino.

Wait, Did Sony Just Accidentally Reveal the Uncharted Collection for PS4?

Not-so hidden relic

At this point, it’s probably fairly safe to assume that there will be an Uncharted Collection on the PlayStation 4. Sony has said that it doesn’t want to flood the market with re-releases, but does want to provide people that didn’t own a PlayStation 3 with an opportunity to play some of the previous generation’s best...

Are There Any Secret Features in PS4 Firmware Update 2.00?

Yes, there are

Sony doesn’t tend to understand the concept of patch notes. While it will always detail the major changes included as part of a numbered firmware update, it frequently throws in hidden extras. This has been the case since the early days of the PlayStation 3, and just because it’s got a fancy new piece of hardware on the market, it...

How Does Sony Solve a Problem Like Xbox One Price Cuts?

Pricing predicament

Microsoft resembles a certain other green giant right now: you wouldn’t like it when it’s angry. While the Xbox One has been doing reasonably well over the past year, it’s been outpaced heavily by the PlayStation 4 around the globe – and that’s put the American company on the back foot. It’s not immensely surprising...
