  • Sony ups loss forecast to $2 billion following smartphone struggles
    Bald Bouncer
    Sony is now forecasting a 230 billion yen ($2.15 billion) loss for the fiscal year ending in March 2015, a revision nearly five times more than the company previously projected. The Japanese electronics giant was expecting a 50 billion yen loss, but today it announced it's downgrading the value of its mobiles business by 180 billion yen ($1.68 billion) following an internal review. Sony began the review in July after cutting forecast smartphone sales by 14 percent following a sluggish opening quarter....

The trial is for European players only, as invites are granted at SCEE's discretion....

    Bald Bouncer
    PlayStation Plus members are getting the service's edition of Driveclub on top of next month's regular number of games, according to Sony Europe.

  • '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.
