We're all in agreement that Sony's E3 2015 press conference was the company's best, at least in recent years, right? The golden trifecta of The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Shenmue III absolutely brought the house down, and it's a feat that we're not sure the Japanese giant will ever be able to top. Interestingly, however, it...
In news that will elate Giant Bomb fans, ex-Sony executive Adam Boyes has joined Iron Galaxy as its CEO, replacing founder Dave Lang, who will continue to have a very active role in the studio's business development. Iron Galaxy, for those who don't know, is perhaps best known for Killer Instinct on the Xbox One and Windows 10 – but it...

Adam Boyes has one of the most recognisable faces at PlayStation – but the Vice President of Developer and Publisher Relations is moving on. The suit – perhaps best known for announcing Final Fantasy VII Remake and Shenmue III at last year's E3, as well as featuring in
For the lucky
In theory, Secret Santa is a great idea. Everyone in an office or school gets assigned one random person, and they’re responsible for purchasing said individual a gift. The problem is that when there are already established relationships at play, phallic objects are usually the order of the day. Involve a stranger, though, and things...
All part of being the best place to play
Sony wants you to feel special for selecting the PlayStation 4 over the handful of other systems on the market.

Microsoft’s holding a gun to the heads of indie developers, forcing them to deploy their wares on the Xbox One at the same time as other systems or forget releasing them on the format at all. This means that smaller studios without the bandwidth to produce multiple versions of their titles at once may be forced to launch on...
Not literally, we hope
Sony can’t tell you about all of the upcoming PlayStation 4 games just yet, so it's teasing them instead. SCEA executive Adam Boyes has thrown some fresh fuel into the hype train’s overworked engine, telling the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast that he “lost his mind” over an upcoming next generation title...

Exclusivity has been a staple of the console business since its inception, but as part of a candid keynote at the IndieCade conference in Los Angeles this week, Sony’s vice president of publisher and developer relations Adam Boyes admitted that the practice isn’t always productive for platform holders or...
