Sony's comic book adaptation nears
BBC's planned television drama, currently titled Game Changer, is about the controversy surrounding Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto series. The plot follows the long dispute between Sam Houser, Rockstar's president, and Jack Thompson, the outspoken lawyer and critic who says that video games cause real world violence. Rockstar has now...
Does anyone even watch television "live" anymore? Fair enough, sporting events are best enjoyed as they happen, but we can't remember the last time that we sat down at 19:00PM on the dot to catch the latest episode of Emmerdale – it's all about on-demand these days. It's frustrating, then, that the PlayStation 4 has been missing the...
Sony's comic book adaptation nears
You probably won't need a particularly long memory to remember Sony's press conference derailing Powers segment at a recent E3, but you may be pleased to learn that the platform holder has followed through with the project. While Microsoft has already scrapped its entire television division, the Japanese giant's...
TV, TV, TV
Microsoft may be doing its best to refocus the Xbox One’s strategy on games, but it’s still quietly got television on the brain. Speaking in an interview with Bloomberg, entertainment executive Nancy ‘Next Water Cooler Moment’ Tellem questioned Sony’s commitment to original content, boasting that the Redmond-based firm has...
While Netflix original shows are starting to become the norm, the same can't be said for the console streaming market. However, this may be changing in the near future. The first PlayStation Network exclusive series Powers is currently in production in the United States. This supernatural drama is based on the comic created by Brian...
TV, TV, TV
Sony’s proven over the past few months that it’s not stupid – and thus it’s aware of how important entertainment applications are to the future of the PlayStation 4. But while its message hasn’t focused on media capabilities anywhere near as closely as its primary competitor, that doesn’t mean that it’s overlooked
Different device, different display
Resolution has been the most popular point of video game discourse over the past few days. With the expiration of several next generation embargoes, pivotal multiplatform products such as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 have been compared and contrasted across various consoles. But with
Company on the cusp of groundbreaking deal
Microsoft may have been ridiculed for its frankly baffling emphasis on television during the Xbox One’s reveal back in May, but Sony was never going to let its competitor outright dominate the market that it’s been fighting for ever since the PlayStation 2 included a DVD player. The Wall Street...
Looks a bit woof
Jimmy Fallon’s video game week has continued with a brief look at Call of Duty: Ghosts. This is the same footage that was shown at E3, in which you get to take control of dog Riley via a remote video link. There are some pretty cool ideas on display – we especially like the way that you can bark to bring guards out into the...
Sony’s been a little cagey with regards to where you’ll actually be able to share your gameplay clips from the PlayStation 4, but system architect Mark Cerny virtually confirmed compatibility with YouTube on the Jimmy Fallon show earlier in the week. Explaining the console’s social features to the excitable host, the video...
Mark Cerny pops up on television
Late night TV host Jimmy Fallon may have struggled to get to grips with Killzone: Shadow Fall earlier in the year, but he definitely put in a much better performance with Knack overnight. As part of an ongoing video game week, Fallon invited PlayStation 4 system architect Mark Cerny onto the show to talk hardware...
Don't shoot at the air vent
It’s really cool that Jimmy Fallon is not afraid to promote video games live on his NBC show, but do people actually watch it? We ask because this episode – which features the first live televised footage of Killzone: Shadow Fall for the recently announced PlayStation 4 – predominantly revolves around two grown men...
Launching in February on ITV4
Forget about Dancing on Ice, Britain’s Got Talent, and the X-Factor – there’s a new ITV reality show in town. Sony has announced that it’s teaming up with the UK broadcaster to air a six episode television series based on its GT Academy competition. The programme will depict the plight of six Gran Turismo 5...
Brought to life
Sony’s augmented reality franchise Invizimals is unbelievably popular in parts of continental Europe. As such, it’s not exactly surprising to learn that the platform holder is launching an animated television series based on the Pokémon-inspired franchise. The first episode – produced in collaboration with Spanish animation...
