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...
Microsoft is feeling pretty good about its gaming console business, and with good reason. The company announced today that the Xbox One has outsold the PlayStation 4 for the fourth consecutive month in the United States according to The NPD Group. Microsoft has never had such a lengthy string of victories over the PlayStation 4 since both consoles debuted three years ago. When we reported on the Xbox One’s third consecutive sales victory last month, we reckoned that sales of the newly launched PlayStation 4 Slim would reverse the losing streak for Sony. However, Microsoft has still been able to... 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...

At long last, Bethesda is bringing mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition to PlayStation 4 players after working out an arrangement with Sony. That was the plan all along, of course, with Bethesda originally intending to bring modding to the PS4 back in June. But then Sony set up a roadblock by refusing to approve mods as Bethesda wanted to implement them. "Sony has informed us they will 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 month ago. "Like you, we are disappointed by... Read more...
The wait for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is down to about a month, though in the meantime, the game's retail packaging for the PlayStation 4 gives us something interesting to talk about. Apparently the game, which comes with a digital code to download a remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, will consume 130GB of storage space if installing the entire kit-and-caboodle. A picture of the box art shows the storage requirement, which is for both titles combined. It's not entirely clear how much space each individual takes up (we'll do some math in a moment), just that the two combined... Read more...
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)....

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.

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...
