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...
It's become somewhat standard procedure for smartphone makers to release two standout handsets with each new generation. They're typically separated primarily by size—different strokes for different folks—and a spattering of features. Such is the case with Sony and its new Xperia ZX and Xperia X Compact, the former touting a 5.2-inch Full HD 1080p display (1920x1080) and the latter with a 4.6-inch HD 720p (1280x720) screen. The Xperia XZ is the beefier device of the two. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage in the single SIM version and 64GB in the dual-SIM... 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...

Can't we all as PC and console gamers just get along? The answer is a resounding yes as we're seeing increased efforts from all sides in making platform-specific games playable on different systems. The latest effort is from Sony, which announced that PlayStation Now is making the jump to Windows PC, first in Europe and then North America not longer after. "This will bring a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles to Windows PC for the very first time, including entries in the Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank franchises, as well as beloved PS3 games like The Last of Us and...

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...
No Man’s Sky has only been out for two days on the Playstation 4 and comes out tomorrow on the PC. The developer has already released a few patches, but players are already exploiting the game’s lingering loopholes. Gamers have found ways to quickly obtain rare items and finish the game. One player was able to obtain five Atlas Stones, a rare game item, in around half an hour. This process should have taken at least ten times as long. What exactly is the glitch? We will not divulge all the game’s secrets, but here is the gist. When a person dies, the game lets the player reclaim their ship’s... Read more...
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...
While PC virtual reality (VR) gaming fans have the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive to play around with (priced at $600 and $800 respectively), console gamers have largely been left out of the loop. That will change on October 13th, which is when the PlayStation VR will launch in the United States for the PlayStation 4 (and likely also the PlayStation 4 Neo). Leading up to the PlayStation VR’s release, more details about the accessory are starting to leak to the internet (via a leaked PlayStation VR brochure). We’ve learned that gamers will need roughly 60 square feet of unobstructed space for the accessory... Read more...
Although Rise of the Tomb Raider started off life on the Xbox One in November, it was always intended to make its way to other platforms. It landed on the PC in January and today, we’ve learned that PlayStation 4 owners will be able to purchase the game on October 11th. The launch on the PS4 culminates with Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, which includes Rise of the Tomb Raider and new premium DLC chapters entitled “Blood Ties” and “Lara’s Nightmare.” Also on tap is co-op support for the existing “Endurance” mode and a new “Extreme Survivor” setting that not only jacks up the difficulty...
