It's always interesting to hear what the bigwigs behind major game consoles have to say about the future of gaming on their platforms. That's especially true now that both Sony and Microsoft have announced or released mid-cycle upgrades with faster hardware. In that respect, it appears that consoles are becoming more like PCs, but is that the future of consoles? Don't count on it, says Sony boss Andrew House. Sony has begun taking pre-orders for its forthcoming PlayStation 4 Pro, essentially a beefed version of the PS4 that can deliver faster frame rates and better visuals (4K streaming and HDR)....

We’ve got some bad news to deliver for PlayStation 4 gamers out there (and no, we’re not talking about the lack of 4K Blu-ray disc support on the PlayStation 4 Pro). While PC gamers were blessed with Fallout 4 mods and the Creation Kit back in late April, Bethesda made it clear that the PlayStation 4 would receive support in June. That time has come and go, and we now know why. Bethesda announced today that it has suspended its plans to offer mod support on the PlayStation 4 for Fallout 4 and Skyrim. To put it bluntly, Sony was the primary reason for this decision — it was not due to any hardware... Read more...
Sony unveiled a pair of updated PlayStation 4 consoles on Wednesday, one that's a slimmer, lighter version of the current model, and the more exciting PS4 Pro with upgraded internals capable of 4K resolution gaming and movie watching. Cool stuff, though Microsoft was quick to remind the Internet community that its Xbox One S can do something the PS4 Pro can't—play 4K Blu-ray discs. Microsoft posted a picture of its Xbox One S console to Twitter accompanied by a several highlights. 4K streaming and Blu-ray? Check. HDR gaming? Check. Sames goes for being 40 percent smaller, and it costs $299, a Benjamin... Read more...
Sony formally confirmed its more powerful PlayStation “Neo” console earlier this summer, and today it officially announced its range-topping console and presented it to gamers. We never expected the Neo name to make it production, and we were correct: the console is simply called the PlayStation 4 Pro. So what does the “Pro” moniker bring if you decide to upgrade from your current PlayStation 4 console? Well, for starters, the PlayStation 4 Pro has a 30 percent faster processor and the onboard GPU is twice as powerful (as we reported back in July). The console also comes standard with a 1TB hard...

Sony is holding a big hardware event tomorrow in New York City, and two major releases are set to make their debuts. Sony has already confirmed one of them: the higher-performing PlayStation 4 Neo. However, there’s a second console that the company has been incredibly tight-lipped about: the PlayStation 4 Slim. Despite the fact that Sony hasn’t acknowledged the existence of the PlayStation 4 Slim, the console has shown up in multiple occasions on video and has been unboxed for all to see. And now we’re actually seeing a teardown of the console, just before its official debut. The twenty-minute... Read more...
Well, this is a bit of a bummer. Polyphony had originally planned for Gran Turismo Sport to drift onto the PlayStation 4 in mid-November, but has now decided to delay the title to sometime in 2017. Polyphony pointed to high expectations, both from eager fans itching to get behind the virtual wheel and its own development team, as why it's delaying what it considers its foremost competitive gaming title. Polyphony's putting a lot of effort into GT Sport. The developer said it's one of its most ambitious undertakings to date as it employs the latest technologies, things like physics-based rendering...

It looks like it's going to be a very busy holiday season for Sony, as it's rumored to be launching not one, but two updated PlayStation 4 consoles next month. We reported just earlier about a "Slim" model PS4 that's supposed to come alongside the faster-performing Neo, and now we have some pictures (and even a video) to help add some substance. Over at the forum NeoGAF, a slew of pictures have been posted of a "real" Slim console. While we used quotes there, it does for all intents and purposes appear to be a legitimate unit, complete with packaging. For the most part, the Slim model shares the... Read more...
Surprise, surprise—Sony is getting ready to launch not one, but two new iterations of its popular PlayStation 4 console. One will be a slim version of the standard PS4 and the other will be the PlayStation 4 Neo, a more muscular build with faster and upgraded hardware to tackle gaming and movie playback on 4K Ultra HD resolution displays.We already knew the PS4 Neo was eventually headed to store shelves, as Sony confirmed the more powerful 4K-capable console earlier this summer. Not long after, Sony President Shuhei Yoshida made it clear that the PS4 Neo wouldn't upset or signal the end of the... Read more...
Sony is getting ready to give beta testers for the PlayStation 4 a sneak peak of its upcoming 4.00 system firmware update, otherwise known by its codename Shingen. It will roll out soon to anyone signed up to Sony's public beta program and bring with it a refreshed user interface with new tools for organization, updating the Quick Menu, and a whole lot more. Some of the UI changes will be noticeable right away, such as new system backgrounds and a revised What's New tab. Other changes are more subtle and include things like updated popup notifications and redesigned system icons. When you mash... Read more...
Microsoft has had its time to shine in the spotlight with the release of its 40 percent smaller Xbox One S, and next month will be Sony’s time to capture the attention of both the press and gamers. According to VICE Gaming, the upcoming PlayStation 4 refresh will be unveiled on September 7th. The console, which we have been dubbing PlayStation 4 Neo or PS4 Neo, is a more powerful successor to the PlayStation 4. Sony first confirmed the existence of the PS4 Neo back in early June, with Sony chief executive Andrew House stating, “It is intended to sit alongside and complement the standard PS4. We...

Even if the action-adventure survival game No Man's Sky isn't your kind of game, it's hard to argue that the title has lead to one of the most interesting development cycles we've seen in recent years. It's a game that half a year ago went under most people's radar, but today? It can't stay out of the news, and for a myriad of reasons. This past May, the game's developer, Hello Games, had to deliver the unfortunate news that the game would be delayed until this month, which is news that didn't go down well with many of the game's legion of fans. One journalist even received death threats... Read more...
There are a slew of reasons fans of fighting games should look forward to EVO each year, but this year, there are two special ones. For starters, this year's event marks the 20th of its kind, and it also marks the first time Street Fighter V is featured at the event. As the SF series has been such a hallmark of EVO over the years, it's easy to understand why a brand-new release in the franchise creates such a fevered buzz. The fact that Street Fighter V was a cause of a lot of excitement at EVO is interesting simply thanks to the fact that the game didn't have the smoothest launch. Some would argue... Read more...
It's been quite the two months for the No Man's Sky developer team. A couple of months ago, we reported that the game would be suffering yet another delay; news that didn't sit well with everyone who has been waiting 'forever' for the game. Weeks later, Hello Games settled an absurd dispute with Sky TV, allowing the company to continue using the No Man's Sky name it has promoted for the past five years. Now comes some great news: No Man's Sky has reached gold status, and as you might be able to tell from the shot above, the development team could not be happier. After all it's been through, that...
