  • Sony Will Cut PS4 Price To $249 and PS4 Pro Price To $349 This Holiday Claim
    Bald Bouncer
    Although Sony has had a great 2017 so far, the PS4 has no major AAA exclusive games penned for release this Q4, except Gran Turismo Sport. In a way, Gran Turismo Sport has a huge responsibility of pushing the PS4 sales further for all the important Holiday season. Things become even more challenging if one puts Forza Motorsport 7 into the equation.


    So the PS4 may not be getting as many Holiday exclusives as the Nintendo Switch or even the Xbox One this Holiday- but against the...

    Marvel vs Capcom Infinite may have had all of its thunder stolen by the infinitely superior seeming Injustice 2 and the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z, but there are undoubtedly long time fans of the series who are still waiting on the fourth entry in the series. Those fans should be pretty happy at the new footage for the game that was shared today.

  • PS4 Games Are Now Playable On PlayStation Now
    Bald Bouncer
    If you want to play PS4 games, but not on a PS4, you now can- sorta. As announced earlier this year, PS4 games have now been made available on Sony’s PS Now streaming service. This means that you can play PS4 games in the PS Now catalog on devices which support PS Now, including your PC.


    Of course, remember, these games are not actually going to be playable natively- they are being streamed, meaning you need to have an appropriate internet connection, and that there will be issues...

    Bald Bouncer
    With servers stabilizing this week for Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, players of the new Stormblood expansion have quite a bit to look forward to. Patch 4.01’s notes are now available and they indicate a new raid.


    Omega: Deltascape will see eight players teaming up over a 90 minute time limit for the raid, though you’ll need to be a Discible of War or have a magic level of 70 with item levels at 295 or higher. Rewards for completing the four areas of the raid will be tokens...

  • Spider-Man PS4 Details Revealed: Peter Parker Builds His Own Suit
    Bald Bouncer
    Spider-Man on the PS4 is one of the most anticipated games on the system- and Insomniac Games is keeping players in the loop about the game by persistently sharing information on it on Twitter. Some of the new information we got recently demonstrates that Spider-Man PS4 will adhere more closely to the comics than anything else.


    For instance, we now learn that Peter Parker has been Spider-Man for eight years, and that he builds his own suit and tech. We learn that his temperament...

  • We Learned So Much From The PSN Hack, Says Sony America Chief

    The PSN hack is one of the largest scandals in cyber history, and one of the lowest points in Sony’s tenure as a platform holder. For almost a month, the PSN network was taken down by hackers, and over 70 million users had their information compromised. In and of itself, that was terrible- but Sony’s poor communication at the time exacerbated matters further.

    Shawn Layden, who is the current head of PlayStation in America, was at the time Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of PlayStation Network Entertainment. Speaking to Polygon about the hack, Layden was frank, stating that it was a ‘baptism by fire’, and that Sony ended up learning a lot from the incident.

    “If it had to happen to us, I’m glad it happened then. We’ve learned so much from that experience,” he said. “We were in as good a position as we could be at the time with what was, at the time, state of the art. But we did get hit and we have taken our capabilities in that area to the highest degree possible. So no one is complacent or, or ignorant about the dangers and the challenges that are out there but I think we are in a much better place today. We have had our baptism by fire.”

    While the PSN has a whole lot of issues still, these are relatively minor compared to the sheer scope of how bad the network outage and security flaws were at the time- and I am glad Sony learned from the experience to make PSN better, relative to what it used to be, at least.
