8Bitdo has announced a new accessory for the red-hot gaming console that nobody can seem to get their hands on this holiday: the Nintendo NES Classic Edition. The company is marketing its NES30 Classic Edition Set, which adds wireless controller support to the retro console via Bluetooth. The set comes with a Bluetooth adapter that plugs directly into the console, and includes the NES30, which is a wireless replica of the original NES controller. The NES30 is capable of providing you 30 hours of wireless gaming, which should be more than enough to handle your hardcore Super Mario Bros. gaming sessions.... Read more...
Call of Duty might not be the biggest name in eSports, but its popularity is nonetheless huge and it has the potential to become even bigger. Will Infinite Warfare help that? It's really hard to say at this point, but Sony and Infinity Ward seem very keen on pushing it as hard as they can. At PlayStation Experience, which takes place on December 3rd and 4th, eight teams will compete in an invitational using Infinite Warfare. Those teams include Splyce, Team Elevate, Rise Nation, Faze Clan, Luminosity Gaming, Orbit, Renegades, and Evil Geniuses. And as you'd expect, if you can't watch the action... Read more...
Back in the day the Sony was supposed to create a CD-ROM add-on for the Super Nintendo. The collaboration fell through and the Nintendo Playstation was relegated to the trashcan of video game history. Ben Heck recently conducted an extensive investigation of the Nintendo Playstation and recently showed viewers exactly what was inside the cancelled console. Where did someone find this video game “missing link”? Terry Diebold was a maintenance man for Advanta Corporation from 2000 to 2009. The owner of the corporation was Olaf Olafsson, the former CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.  It was... Read more...
It’s been widely reported that Sony will release a more powerful variant of the PlayStation 4 console, dubbed PS4 Neo, later this year. Sony has done nothing to combat the rumors of the console as more evidence of its existence have proliferated throughout the blogosphere. Today, Sony chief executive Andrew House confirmed the development of the PS4 Neo in an interview with the Financial Times. House corroborated details that we’ve all been hearing for months, specifically that the console will have a beefier processor and graphics controller along with support for 4K gaming resolutions. As... Read more...
The world of PlayStation gaming is ready to enter a new chapter. On Friday, Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment were dissolved to create a new company: Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE). SIE, which is headquartered in San Mateo, California, is placing a huge emphasis on the PlayStation brand and the future of gaming. Some may see this as little more than changing the name of the company — even SIE acknowledges that “probably not a whole lot” will change at first — and perhaps some exec shuffling. However, this new transformation will allow SIE to “more quickly to meet... Read more...
One thing that can be said about Sony is that it doesn't give up without a fight. We witnessed the rise and fall of the admittedly very cool Xperia Play smartphone, which acted as both a phone and portable gaming device. Then came the company's PlayStation Mobile gaming network, which was shuttered last summer. However, is attempting to get its foot in the door once again with a new company called ForwardWorks Corporation. ForwardWorks will be 100 percent focused on mobile gaming using PlayStation IP, and while details are rather thin at the moment, we're going to... Read more...
If you were having trouble connecting to the PlayStation Network yesterday, you might have the hacking group Lizard Squad to thank. An hour after the group's founder posted to Twitter that "itz bouta rain packets", Sony's "Ask PlayStation" account tweeted that it was investigating connectivity issues. Lizard Squad either delivered on its promise, or is trying to reap the benefits of a major coincidence. Video games are always a hot item on big shopping days like Black Friday, so it can be expected that networks like PSN are going to get hammered simply due to the fact that so many people are trying...

Well, we’re guessing that this isn’t the response that indie developer Twisted was expecting. Earlier this week, Twisted announced that it was releasing its own native app for Windows that provides remote play capabilities for PlayStation 4 games. Twisted confirmed that the app would cost $10 as it “sadly [is] the only way to support my living costs.” Unfortunately for Twisted, it appears that Sony isn’t about to let a third-party developer profit from an app that it could easily offer for free. Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, took to Twitter to let PlayStation... Read more...
Thanks to the New Xbox One Experience update, Xbox One users not only get a Windows 10-esque user interface, but they also get Xbox 360 backwards compatibility along with Xbox One to Windows 10 game streaming. Given all of these fresh goodies that Microsoft is providing to gamers, it’s understandable that some PlayStation 4 fans might feel a bit neglected by Sony. However, it appears that at least one developer is looking to give PlayStation 4 gamers some functionality that Sony has yet to provide: PlayStation 4 to PC game streaming. Developer Twister has announced its plans to release its Remote... Read more...
It's not often that we get to talk about Sony's microconsole, the PlayStation TV. In fact, you shouldn't feel bad if you forgot it even existed; since its release outside of Japan last summer, it really hasn't garnered much follow-up coverage. It's too bad, too, because technically, it's a very cool device, especially with its unique ability to play PS Vita titles. Well, if you do happen to own a PlayStation TV and want to have a bit of hacking fun, we have a project for you. Because some PS Vita titles require touch support in certain areas (or entirely), Sony has a blacklist to prevent such games... Read more...
Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of Sony's original PlayStation console launch in North America. To celebrate the occasion the company has discounted more than 100 titles for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PSP, and PS Classics. These aren't small time savings, either. Markdowns are as high as 70 percent on some titles, while PlayStation Plus members can save up to 80 percent -- not too shabby! Included among the discounted games are Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Edition (PS4) for $34.79, down from $59.99, Call of Dudy: Advanced Warfare - Digital Pro Edition (PS4) for $68.99,...

Pictures of a hybrid game console consisting of a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) outfitted with a CD-ROM peripheral built by Sony are making the rounds on the web, but before we get into that, let's backtrack a few decades and discuss the system that everyone assumed didn't exist. Grab the plutonium and set the DeLorean for 1988.That's when Sony and Nintendo collaborated on a CD-ROM drive for the SNES. Their goal was to release a combined game console called the PlayStation that could play both SNES cartridges and SNES CD-ROMs. Three years later, Sony announced the system at the Consumer...

Microsoft reduced the price of its Xbox One console (and its bundles) by $50 during the holiday shopping season and saw a huge uptick in sales. The fun faded on Saturday, January 3 when Microsoft’s special pricing ended. However, the price cut was even to allow the Xbox One to surpass the PlayStation 4 in sales for the months of November and December (November was the first time that the Xbox One outpaced the PlayStation 4 in 2014). Microsoft smells blood in the water, so it’s going for another round of price cuts. Starting tomorrow, January 16, the price of the Xbox One will once again fall to... Read more...
Both Sony and Microsoft have been reportedly hacked today, with numerous disruptions to both Xbox Live and Sony's PlayStation Network. both services have been partially or totally offline all day, with Microsoft's official Twitter campaign chiming in to note that the service had been disrupted and that the company was working to bring it back online -- but didn't have an ETA on when that would happen. A group called Lizard Squad is currently claiming responsibility for the attack on Twitter, which likely involves spamming both networks with huge amounts of data to jam servers and make it impossible...
