Remember when people thought console gaming was dead? Smart phones meant that people were playing casual games and far too many articles came out talking about the end of days. It was during this period that Sony still developed the PS4 - they knew it offered a different experience and hoped that people would want it. I guess it paid off.

The Sony Vita is something of a forgotten handheld. With tens of owners and a rather small library of games, it has become a bit of a joke in the industry. However, Sony is still committed to the device.

Destiny is one of the biggest releases we've seen in a while. All the flurry of attention is reminding me of the hype surrounding GTA V last year. This time around, there is a special relationship with one particular console, and Sony isn't shy to brag about Destiny.

The Oculus Rift is still unbearably far away from launch. Oculus has started shipping their second development kit to excited developers and impatient gamers globally, but the one that's actually meant for people like us still has no release date. It does, however, have an estimated price point. Oh look, my wallet is already running away.

While the Wii U may be performing poorly, it still brought some neat ideas to gaming. Remember that feature of playing the game on your GamePad elsewhere in the house? Sony offer something similar thanks to PS4 Remote Play, allowing gamers to use their Vita for the same purpose. Sony have recently announced a new range of Z3 tablets at IFA in Berlin. That range will be PS4 Remote Play compatible.

When I first saw DriveClub, the game looked…ok. After all, it wasn’t the only racing game on the block, and the original release date of 2013 Q4 didn’t exactly grab me by the spanners. The game got delayed beyond that date however, and I found myself not exactly giving the racer any love. But since then, DriveClub has begun to look rather exciting. Visually, it’s a massive improvement, a potential Gran Turismo killer. And that extra wait was quite possibly worth it.

The PS4 is a real indie machine, when you start factoring out some of its AAA titles. That's in no way a bad thing, especially since some quality titles that were once exclusives are now making their way to Sony's platform. Dust: An Elysian Tale is the next game to make the jump.

I was one of those foolish people who actually went out and bought PlayStation move when it was released. I now have a PlayStation Eye and two electric lollipop dildos sitting gathering dust in my cupboard. Of all the major accessories released last gen, that has to be the most unloved – by consumers and publishers alike. Sony’s convinced they’ll make a come back.

Sony has sold a ridiculous number of PS4s, crossing the ten million mark as announced at Gamescom. This success goes way beyond their initial predictions or expectations and I'm sure Microsoft is hoping to replicate this with the Xbox One once they launch in the new territories this September. So how did Sony do it?

Layoffs are a sad reality of the gaming industry. When a project wraps up there are sometimes too many developers under a roof for a studio to support while thy figure out what to do next. This happens nearly every day, and yesterday Sucker Punch was the studio letting people go.

The Last Guardian is practically an urban legend – everybody knows about it, but no one has actually seen it. Where is the mythical game that got people so hyped up 5 years ago?

This year’s Gamescom won’t be remembered for surprise reveals or gigantic game showings. Instead it’ll be remembered for the PR storm surrounding Microsoft and Rise of the Tomb Raider. A lot of people are claiming that Microsoft is now trying to buy exclusives, something Sony says they’ll never do. Except, they already do buy some exclusives. Sort of.

I genuinely don’t get certain hackers. There’s a  difference between uncovering hidden information, and being a spiteful little bastard who makes life hell for everybody. And that level of douchebaggery is something that the Xbox, PlayStation and Electronic Sports League have just experienced.
