Whether you love or hate Bungie for having a friends with benefits relationship with Sony now, you can’t deny that the content arriving on that platform does look rather tempting.

Destiny’s PlayStation exclusive content is upsetting Xbox fans

I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that Destiny is a PlayStation exclusive. Sony has been pushing the game so hard in comparison to Microsoft that it’s an easy mistake to make. Not only that, but the PlayStation version of the game seem to be getting a fair share of exclusive content, and that’s upsetting quite a few people.

GTA V looks much prettier in this PS4 comparison

Sony briefly revealed that yes, Grand Theft Auto V was coming to new-gen platforms. At which point, everyone inside the Sony event lost their sh*t, something that I’d imagine was happening around the world at the exact same time. So how much prettier does the game actually look then? Here’s some video proof for those of you who want an HDier Trevor rampage.

Destiny will have plenty of PlayStation exclusives

Destiny is almost upon us, with most of you getting a taste of the upcoming Bungie game thanks to some Alpha-lovin’.

PlayStation Plus is getting overhauled

The idea behind PlayStation Plus has been shockingly simple since it debuted four years ago. Customers pay a reasonable annual fee for the service, and get ten times that value back in games being available to download for free every month. Somehow, this idea worked. And now, the service is getting an overhaul.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Review – Dad of the tentacles

Shhh shhh. Just keep quiet. Just shut up. Don’t question this. Stop thinking about why an Octopus is masquerading around as a loving family man.

They’ve sold off their VAIO PC division, TV sales are stagnant and the company is losing a bunch of cash. As is the Japanese tradition, it’s executives – including Kaz Hirai -  will now be taking a huge pay cut.

The Last of Us: Remastered is almost too big for a Blu-Ray

New generation consoles have spoilt me. I now look with disdain at the visuals that are present on current-gen platforms, turning my massive nose up at them. One game which was truly impressive last year though? The Last Of Us, which looked fantastic on PS3. An HDier version is on the way for PlayStation 4. And it can barely fit on the disc.
