Bungie doesn’t love Sony fans more

Last week more than a few Xbox fans invaded the official Bungie forums to express their anger over Destiny’s exclusive DLC. Content which would only be available on Sony’s platforms. At least for the next year or so.

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.

Sony has invested “significantly” in Project Morpheus

Man, forget about four-player co-op! VR is the fad that I’m into right now. I got my chest rumbled like I was a cast member in The Wolf Of Wall Street with the KOR-FX Haptic Feedback vest earlier this year, and then I immersed things up a bit more with Sony’s Project Morpheus. It’s a pretty nifty device. And the amount of cash that Sony has invested into it will shock you…if you damage the cable coverings and get water on the device.

Why does The Last of Us remastered exist?

I’ve come to realise that I’m a selfish jerk. Being a PlayStation 3 owner who’s already played The Last of Us, I’ve been one of the many moaning about the game being re-released as a remastered version. I want new games, not rehashes of stuff I’ve already played. But The Last of Us Remastered isn't for me; it’s for the scores of brand new PlayStation owners and converted fans.

Even Sony is impressed with the current direction of the Xbox One

If I had to give an award to the best E3 press conference this year, I’d give it to Microsoft. Now while some people may not have dug all the games that were shown, that isn’t exactly the point I’m making here. What Microsoft did, was create a show that was just pure games. And that’s impressive. So impressive actually, that even Sony had some praise for their rivals.

Naughty Dog dream about The Last of Us in 60fps

The Last of Us is an overrated experience. This is one of the first things I was told after joining the team last week, and my protests were just as quickly shot down. No matter, because that won’t stop Sony from releasing one of the best PS3 titles again for the PS4. The real question is, will it run at 60fps?

PlayStation’s TV advertising budget blitzes Xbox

I cancelled my satellite subscription a few months back so I couldn’t even tell you if we've had a lot of local video game advertising on TV - but apparently it is still a massive thing over the US of A.

Resogun Heroes DLC is now live!

Six months after I bought a PlayStation 4, and I’m still playing Resogun. It’s a game which just may be one of the very best launche titles ever. And it’s getting a DLC upgrade right about now.

Is Sony giving up on the Vita?

Sony’s newest handheld, the PortStation Vita as I affectionately call it, is becoming a perfect home for indie games and smaller titles. It launched with games like the excellent Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a very nearly PS3-quality title, in the palm of your hands. Later on, Killzone: Mercenary for the handheld still stands as one of the best games in the series. Don’t expect much more of that sort of first party goodness from Sony though.

PlayStation Vita Pets review – Heavy petting

The virtual pet scene hasn’t been that big as of late. You’re able to find a plethora of games in this genre for your smartphone, but most lack the finesse to really hold your attention. PlayStation Vita Pets attempts to do what games such as Nintendogs on the Nintendo handheld systems has done for the genre by harnessing the power and unique capabilities of the Vita to provide gamers of all ages with a much meatier pet simulator.

E3 2014 – Heads on with Project Morpheus

It seems that you can’t walk anywhere these days without some twonk in a VR getup running into you and gouging your eye out with a PS Move controller by accident, but I digress. The Oculus Rift has been hogging all the headlines as of late, but there’s a new challenger on the virtually real field. Project Morpheus is its name, and it’s a fancy piece of tech.

E3 2014 – Hands on with The Order 1886

It's a great year for new IPs. Thanks to some new hardware arriving, the time is ripe to build new franchises and gameplay experiences. One such game is The Order 1886, a fusion of action and narrative. It just might be the prettiest game in the PS4. But it does, unfortunately, feel rather..mediocre in other departments.

Sony confident in Destiny as a PS4 seller

Sony’s European boss Jim Ryan believes that the game that’ll most convince people to buy a PlayStation 4 is not a first party title, but rather Activision and Bungie’s Destiny. Speaking with CVG, Ryan said that there are many games that’ll help sell the PS4 coming this year, but the definitive one has to be bungie’s open-world shooter.

E3 2014 – The Sony press conference in pictures

With three down, there was just one last press conference to go. Sony has always had the longest show, as well as the most delicious food for bloggers, journalists and enthusiasts who attend their event. Wait, I was here for the games, right?

Who “won” and who “lost” E3?

The press conferences are over. You’ve read all the information, watched all the trailers and made jokes about the matriarchal parents of people who favour different systems to you.  In the largely imaginary battle for gamers’ hearts and minds, who stands as the victor?
