If you're a fan of Sony's PlayStation Communities feature, but have been left a little perturbed by the fact that Sony somehow has never integrated the functionality into one of its mobile apps: you can now relax. The company today released iOS and Android versions of an app specifically-tailored to those who participate in any PS community. There's something we should warn you about up-front: this is yet another app specific to the PlayStation 4, joining PS Messages, the simply-named "PlayStation", and a few others. It'd be amazing if Sony were to ever combine all three of these apps together, because it's not as though keeping them separate results in faster performance in each. Nonetheless,... Read more...
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.

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 after being the first to report on the news. It's no secret: No Man's Sky has one heck of a passionate... 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 see the company begin its operations on April 1st, at which point we could learn a lot more about which...
