Pink lights, beanies and the city of rock ‘n roll. Damn, I cannot wait for Infamous: Second Son. Which is why I should hurry up and do a new order for the game after my last one got cancelled for '”abuse”. Infamous: Second Son will most likely be a lengthy game. And once the end credits roll, there’ll be more content on the way.
In what I can only see as a bad sign for PlayStation it has been announced that Jack Tretton will be stepping down as President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America at the end of the month.
I don’t handle horror games well. The reason for that might be because of some solid scare design, some well managed use of knowing when to to do a jump-scare or the fact that I’m an absolute coward. So you can bet your clean pants that a game such as SOMA is going to have me assuming the foetal position when it arrives.
It was just before the launch of the console in its native Japan that we told you Sony had sold through over 4 million black boxes. We’ve been waiting to see how much that number would change after the console’s release in its home market. The answer is : lots.
Wow, I have a dirty mind. Once I read the "bound" part of the title, everything else they said about the game with its "deep customization" and "massive monsters" just got all jumbled up in my brain. Hmm, I wonder if that's actually making it more appealing.
Here’s an odd one. A gamer has contacted VG247 about a bug in PlayStation Plus’ trail system . According to said tipster, he’s been able to extend his free 14 day trail indefinitely, and now has PlayStation Plus until 2035 – all without spending a cent.
Sony announced that they are selling their whole PC division. The Vaio brand and business will be sold off to Japan Industrial Partners. 250 to 300 employees will be following, but 5,000 others will lose their jobs.
With the new generation of consoles out now, it’s a safe bet to assume that the prices of the older ones are set to drop soon. They’d be a great purchase for somebody – say a PC gamer - who’s always wanted some of the exclusive games, or people new to the world of videogames. When are they going to get cheaper?
It wasn’t all great hardware and games that arrived with the PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 generation of gaming. There were a few misfires along the way, such as Sony trying so hard to get some of that Wii pie that their Move controller was just one step away from being known as the Sony Pii. But their next bit of potential hardware looks far more original.
Microsoft finally figured out what gamers wanted this month by giving away Sleeping Dogs for free as part of their Games with Gold offering and don’t forget the latest Tomb Raider is also going to be free starting tomorrow.
The new generation of consoles is currently well underway with the Wii U out for ages, the PlayStation 4 available just about everywhere (sorry, Japan), and the Xbox One still only officially available in its 13 launch territories. While fanboys from all sides are still fighting about which is better, the companies involved seem to be above all of that. Microsoft admires, and has congratulated both Sony and Nintendo.
News of Sony’s financial woes aren’t new with the previous supreme leader of electronics having been in financial straits for a few years now but according to some new research the company may be in more trouble than we originally thought.
One of the most distinctive features of the newest generation of gaming consoles is the ability to easily share gameplay footage on social media. I have to admit that while I initially thought that such a feature would be gimmicky and seldom used, I became a convert once I found myself in a Battlefield 4 server on my PS4 and a fighter jet kamikaze’d itself into my face – I couldn’t keep that moment to myself, now, could I?
Unfortunately, all is not well with the sharing function as of late, and we can certainly add this to the list of launch bugs on the PlayStation 4.
I'm still ridiculously jealous of Geoff and Darryn and all the rest of you who have PS4s. I also still want an Xbox One, although I'm seriously wondering when it will ever make it to our shores. PS4 is getting a head start in plenty of countries - their latest announcement is for India. But will naan of the people be able to afford it?
The Last Guardian was meant to be the shining light on the PlayStation 3 after it was announced at E3 in 2009. However 4 years and countless technical issues later we still haven’t seen hide or hair of the once exciting prospect.
