    Bald Bouncer
    Sony has just announced its latest PlayStation 4 update will arrive tomorrow. The headline item of the "Yukimura" update is Suspend/Resume. It's something that Sony has been promising since before the PS4 even launched, and means you'll be able jump straight from rest mode into a paused game. Sure, it took 16 months, but better late than never.

    Yukimura also adds the ability to back-up and restore your system to a USB drive and expands the console's social media...

    Bald Bouncer

    Yes, developers are still rehashing popular last-generation games in an attempt to pad out a thin current-gen catalog -- meet God of War III Remastered, a PlayStation 4 overhaul of the classic deity-slaying PS3 title. Sony Santa Monica isn't being too specific about what's new, but it's promising prettier, "silky smooth" 1080p brawling (here's hoping that means 60 frames per second) and a new photo mode that lets you capture vicious kills or scenic vistas. The PS4 refresh...

  • Sony attempts to 'redefine television' with launch of PlayStation Vue
    Bald Bouncer

    With 20 million-plus PlayStation 4 consoles sold to date and over 80 million PlayStation 3s in homes worldwide, Sony has plenty of reason to make Vue, its TV-streaming service, a cornerstone of the platform. The subscription-based service, which officially launches today in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, is more than just a Sling TV clone, too. Vue offers not only a mixture of live and on-demand content from cable networks like Discovery Communications (e.g., TLC, OWN, Animal...

  • 'Select' PS Vita apps hit the US PlayStation Store: Netflix, LiveTweet & more (video)

    Did you just brave the lines of a midnight launch party and snag yourself a PS Vita in the US? Good news ye early adopters, Sony's PlayStation.Blog.US has just announced that select free apps will be available as part of today's PlayStation Store update. Currently, you'll find Netflix, LiveTweet and Flickr, but there's still nary of trace of Facebook or Foursquare among the bunch (nor any official word on release dates for that matter). We gave each app a download and quick spin prior to them being officially listed without much in the way of hiccups -- however, Netflix does take its sweet time to start-up. Disappointingly, Vita's 20MB cap on 3G data is totally in effect on Netflix, as switching to our cellular connection denied us any access to the service. We're giving the apps some extended use to bring you our initial impressions shortly, but for now, you'll find more info at the source link below.

    Update: We've added a brief video hands-on just past the break to let you grab a taste of each app before downloading them for yourself.
