In case there was ever any doubt about the fact that hallucinogenics are still prevalent in content creation, Hatoful Boyfriend comes to the rescue. Oh, wait - Hatoful Boyfriend isn't the result of a trip to crazy town on qualudes - it's a Japanese game. Of course that doesn't necessarily explain the mind-numbingly cuckoo story line and game objective. What is the objective exactly, you ask? To be frank, we're not quite sure but it sure is out there. It's plainly obvious in fact, that it's way out there. Japan has never had a dearth of romance sims, or what's in effect digital romance novels,... Read more...
Games publisher Ubisoft raked in significantly more revenue than anticipated during its fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2015. According to the company's financial report, sales came to €96,6 million (around $107.9 million in U.S. currency), as opposed to its previous forecast of €80 million (around $89.4 million). The bulk of those sales came from PlayStation 4 gamers. Ubisoft broke down its sales by platform. Sony's PS4 topped the list by accounting for 27 percent of all game sales, more than double the Xbox One at 11 percent. It was also more than double of any other game console, as both... Read more...
Shenmue 3 is a game that was 14 years in the marking, and thanks to a record-setting Kickstarter campaign (the game raised $2 million in just 9 hours), we’ve seen that fans of the popular game series are still willing to show their support for creator Yu Suzuki. When the Kickstarter campaign was first initiated, gamers were only able to pledge their support for a digital copy of the game at a cost of $29. However, Suzuki has something up his sleeve for extremely dedicated fans of the series: This is one of the most requested items on the list, and we are very happy to be able to include the Shenmue...

Microsoft made quite the impression at this year's E3. The company unveiled a fancy (and expensive) new Xbox One controller that you can customize to your liking, and even more appealing, Microsoft announced that it's adding native support for hundreds of Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. Even so, gamers in Japan were largely underwhelmed by it all, as they collectively purchased just 100 Xbox One consoles two weeks ago. That's not a typo, folks. Media Create, a Japanese-language website that tracks video game software and hardware sales in Japan, pegged the Xbox One's sales at... Read more...
Earlier this month, the 1TB PlayStation 4 gained FCC certification, leading many to speculate that Sony would announce the capacious gaming console at E3 2015. While Microsoft delivered its 1TB Xbox One, a kickass Elite wireless gaming controller, Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 PCs, and native backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games, Sony’s E3 presser was pretty much a snoozefest with nary a mention of the 1TB PS4. That changes today with the announcement of the PlayStation 4 Ultimate Player 1TB Edition (say that three times fast) via Sony’s European PlayStation Blog. The console goes... Read more...
A good sign that you've managed to pull off something impressive is when even your arch nemesis is surprised at your accomplishment. That's how it went when Microsoft made the shocking announcement at E3 that Xbox One will be able to natively play Xbox 360 titles later this year. When apprised of the news, rival Sony could only offer props to Microsoft's engineering feat."It was surprising," admitted Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. "I didn't think it was possible. There must be lots of engineering effort. They talked about 100 games, but what kind of games will be included. Is... Read more...
If you were bummed that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been delayed until 2016, Sony has a bit of a consolation prize for Nathan Drake fans. Sony today took to its PlayStation Blog to announced that the original trilogy for the PlayStation 3 — Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception — are being rereleased as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for the PlayStation 4. Since series creator Naughty Dog has its hands tied trying to finish up A Thief’s End, it turned to none other than the pros at Bluepoint Games to remaster the all three games to... Read more...
It appears as though Sony is getting ready to launch a pair of revised PlayStation 4 consoles, one of which will come with twice the amount of storage of current PS4 consoles. A filing with the Federal Communications Commission spills the beans on Sony's plans, though outside of the storage bump and some weight discrepancies, details are pretty sparse.There are two models listed in the certification documents on the FCC's website -- one is listed as CUH-1215A and the other is CUH-1215B. There's also a testing kit listed in the same document,, with model number DUH-T1200AA.The only difference we... Read more...
It doesn't happen very often, so you'll have to excuse Microsoft if it savors the moment after its Xbox One console outsold rival Sony and its PlayStation 4 system last month, according to data collected by NPD Group. The Xbox One was the best selling game console in the U.S. in April, a month in which overall hardware sales decreased by 4 percent. Microsoft needed a win. Since launch, the PS4 has been pretty consistent in outselling the Xbox One, which no doubt played a role in Microsoft's decision to sell the standalone console without a second generation Kinect motion control sensor. Microsoft... Read more...
Considering the long gaps that sit in between console upgrade cycles, it's a bit early to declare any winners or losers among the latest generation of gaming systems. However, we can make predictions based on early trends, and if you ask Ed Fries, the man who was in charge of the team that created the original Xbox, he'll tell you that Sony's PlayStation 4 is likely to keep its lead over Microsoft's Xbox One. It won't be a landslide victory, though Fries sees the PS4 winning "by a nose" if things continue the way they have been. After jumping out to an early sales lead, the PS4 at last count had...

Sony today said it's readying an update for the PlayStation 4 that it plans to start rolling out tomorrow (Thursday). Codenamed "Yukimura," the system software update to version 2.50 will "bring an onslaught" of features to the PS4 console, several of which are the result of user requests and others that "might surprise you." One of the bigger feature additions is the ability to suspend and resume nearly all PS4 games. If something comes up and you need to scoot, just press the PS button to suspend a title. The new feature will allow you to quickly switch from Rest Mode to powered-up so you can... Read more...
It looks as though PlayStation 4 gamers will have to wait at least another year before getting to spend some hands-on time with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, the PS4 exclusive that was initially slated to debut sometime this year. Neil Druckmann, creative director of the game's development studio Naughty Dog, announced in a Sony blog post today that it's delaying the title until Spring 2016. Druckmann said that as more of the game and story line came together, it became increasingly clear that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is a more ambitious project than Naughty Dog originally envisioned. As such,... Read more...
Chinese gamers that have been anticipating the arrival of Sony’s PlayStation 4 console will only have to wait just a little bit longer. Sony officially announced today that the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita will be available on Friday, March 20. Sony had originally settled on a January 11 launch date for its consoles, but was stymied by Chinese government. "The government asked us for final adjustments, which will take some time, so we decided to delay the launch date," said Sony spokeswoman Kaede Bun in early January. With things now firmly back on track, Chinese customers can expect to pay... Read more...
Comcast is one of only two companies (EA being the other) to be voted by readers of The Consumerist as the "Worst Company in America" on multiple occasions. It's fair to say the cable giant has an ongoing image problem, and Comcast isn't helping itself any by continuing to tick off subscribers, this time by preventing them from accessing HBO Go on their PlayStation 4 consoles. Much to the initial delight of PS4 owners, the HBO Go app arrived on the console on Tuesday. All a user has to do is authenticate the service through a cable or satellite... Read more...
