We have been hearing a lot about how well the Xbox One line has been selling, most recently with Microsoft bragging about four consecutive monthly sales victories over the PlayStation 4. Is interesting in the PS4 dwindling? Pshaw! Lest anyone thing the PS4 is old news, Sony today announced that its cumulative sales of its PS4 and recently introduced PlayStation 4 Pro just surpassed 50 million units. The last official update we heard from Sony was back at the end of May when it announced that PS4 sales had topped 40 million units worldwide. That achievement made the PS4 the fastest selling PlayStation... Read more...
There is a word for games that have been in development for more than a decade and delayed across platforms. It's called vaporware, or at least that's the usually the case. But in remarkable defiance of the odds, the really long awaited adventure The Last Guardian has finally emerged for the PlayStation 4, putting an end to a decade of patience. The Last Guardian is a followup Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, a pair of classics released to the PlayStation 2 forever ago. Ideas for the title were being kicked around in 2005, followed by active development in 2007. The plan was to finish the game in... Read more...

It has been a long and agonizing wait getting to this point, but the first batch of mods for Fallout 4, Bethesda's hit title that was voted Game of the Year for 2015 at the 19th annual DICE Awards, has arrived for the PlayStation 4 console. Not to be taken for granted, this day almost never arrived, as Sony initially refused to approve mods as Bethesda wanted to implement them. "Sony has informed us they not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition," Bethesda stated a in September. "Like you, we are disappointed... Read more...
Early reports suggest Sony's upgraded PlayStation console, the PlayStation 4 Pro, is off to a fast start and is even helping to boost regular PS4 sales since launching before the weekend. However, there are also reports by many users that the new consoles don't seem to want to play nice with some 4K HDTV models with little rhyme or reason as to why. The problem at hand is that in some situations the PS4 Pro displays a blank screen instead of brilliant 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) visuals when connected to certain TV models. What makes the issue especially perplexing is that it is being reported... Read more...
A teardown analysis of the original PlayStation 4 console released in 2013 showed that Sony wasn't afraid to bare all its consoles naked bits. The company even posted its own teardown video, which owners of the console could use as a guide when attempting repairs or upgrading the storage drive. Well, good news for anyone who purchased a PlayStation 4 Pro (or plan to), Sony made it equally easy to tear into. As it did with the original PS4 console, Sony again posted its own official teardown video of the PS4 Pro featuring Keiichi Aoki, director of mechanical design, disassembling the new system...

Sony today released the newest version of its PlayStation 4 console, the PlayStation 4 Pro, essentially a supercharged version of the original with faster hardware to support 4K gameplay and High Dynamic Range (HDR) visuals. The PS4 Pro isn't a new generation console, it's basically a hardware upgrade with support for all of your original PS4 content, and Sony has made it easy to transfer all your data to the PS4 Pro. Here's how.First a little housekeeping is in order. You need to make sure that both your original PS4 and your new PS4 Pro are running the latest system software from Sony. This should...

We are now just a week away before the retail launch of the PlayStation Pro, a beefier version of the original PlayStation 4 console with burlier hardware and support for 4K video output and High Dynamic Range (HDR). As we get closer to launch, the question on everyone's mind is how many games will support the PS4 Pro's new capabilities out of the gate. The answer is more than 30. That figure comes straight from Sony. And by the end of the year, Sony said there will be more than 45 titles optimized for the PS4 Pro. In both cases, some of the games will need an update to support the PS4 Pro's new... Read more...
Mark Cerny, lead system architect of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro, recently made a curious comment about rendering games in 4K Ultra HD. What he said is that by his estimation, it would take at least eight teraflops of computing muscle to render content natively in 4K. On the surface he sounds like he is disparaging the PS4 Pro, but he's really throwing shade and Microsoft and its Project Scorpio. Here's the thing about the PS4 Pro—it kicks out 4.2 teraflops of computing power, a massive increase from the original PS4's 1.84 teraflops. That is only about half of what Cerny reckons is...

Sony has a new ad for its not-yet-released PlayStation 4 Pro console, though it is not what you might expect. The trippy ad-spot goes into full retro mode with hat tips to 1980s culture, an odd time period to promote a new PS4 console considering the original PlayStation didn't debut until halfway through the 1990s. Nevertheless, it is an amusing and nostalgic flashback to a bygone era in gaming. The grainy ad plays like a VHS tape, for those of you old enough to remember the defunct media. Saturated colors and grainy video highlight the "super-charged PlayStation 4 Pro console system" with its... Read more...
PlayStation 4 players wishing for a controller that is shaped and design more like an Xbox One Elite gamepad are in luck. Sony announced two officially licensed pro controllers coming to the SIEE region for the PS4 this year, the Razer Raiju and Nacon Revolution, both of which sport a similar overall shape to an Xbox One controller but with familiar PS4 buttons. "To give our competitive and pro players more choice, we invited Razer and Nacon to use their knowledge and expertise in developing eSports peripherals to design two unique pro controllers for PS4," Sony stated in a blog post. "Through... Read more...
ASUS has a new gaming monitor, the VG245H, and unlike most other monitors out there, this one isn't solely aimed at PC gamers. In truth, you could say that about any monitor with an HDMI port, though in this case, ASUS is clearly marketing the VG245H as an option for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners first and PC players second. Heck, even gamers getting their kicks through a set-top box are welcome to join. Therein lies the big pitch from ASUS, The VG245H has a pair of low input lag HDMI ports, so ASUS reckons you can connect a media player to one and a game console to another, "ASUS VG245H features...

Sony's now an official contender in the VR gaming space with its PlayStation VR, which as the name implies is a VR headset designed for the PlayStation 4 console. Naturally, the teardown specialists at iFixIt wasted no time getting their nimble fingered mitts on one for a complete deconstruction. That's to be expected, but what we didn't expect was the level of praise they showered on Sony and its headset. "The verdict: Sony just won the war. Regardless of resolution and actual games, this thing is really well-constructed, cheap, pretty accessible, and has the entire PlayStation marketplace backing... Read more...
For the most part, Sony's chosen to focus on the broader picture for its PlayStation 4 Pro console and is more than happy to discuss all the things it supports, such as 4K output and High Dynamic Range content. But turn the talk to detailed hardware specifications and Sony quickly clams up. Well, usually. In a rare moment of reveal, Sony told a Japanese-language blog that the PS4 Pro will feature a SATA 3.0 interface.That revelation came by way of a correction. Initially, Sony Interactive Entertainment vice president Masayasu Ito told 4Gamer that the PS4 Pro wouldn't support the faster SATA interface... Read more...
