On Wednesday afternoon in Berlin, Sony took the stage at IFA 2015 to unveil a new lineup of consumer electronics stretching across multiple product categories. Although the smartphone stole the spotlight, there were a few other highlights as well, so we’ve decided to collect the three announcements that stuck out to us and round them up below.
I’ve never aspired to design games.
I love to play games, write about games and talk about games, but I also know that I lack the skills necessary to build one myself. I’m in awe of the studios that do manage to ship a complete, working product, even if it doesn’t turn out exactly as they originally intended, because I know the insane amount of time and resources that are dedicated to game production.
For all of these reasons (and probably a few more), I’ve never been able to fully invest myself into a game that relies on me to provide user-generated content.
Super Mario Maker is the first.
Every once in a while, we’ll discuss the ongoing battle between Google Maps and Apple’s Maps app, but there’s an alternatively that many of you probably prefer. Waze is one of the best GPS apps on the market, and on Tuesday, it added a few familiar voices to its rolling selection of celebrity guests. More →
Not many people would argue that Netflix offers the most comprehensive content lineup of any streaming service on the Internet, but the ubiquitous provider isn’t perfect.

One of the most highly anticipated releases of the holiday season is getting a beta.

Have you ever seen something you couldn’t rationalize? Something so ridiculous, you couldn’t comprehend the fact that it was real? That’s how 9 News Perth anchor Karl Stefanovic felt after watching a 15-foot-long shark emerge from the depths of the ocean in one of the most terrifying videos he’d ever seen. More →
The list of PlayStation 4 exclusives for the remainder of 2015 is worryingly slim, but gamers will be pleased to know that the elusive Uncharted 4 finally has a release date. Sony announced on Monday that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will launch on March 18th, 2016, along with a variety of limited edition packages. More →
Ever since the iPhone launched, critics have been talking about the end of the game console era. Although their assertions were overblown, they weren’t entirely wrong — the iPhone has become the most popular gaming device in the world. Now, the latest report regarding the Apple TV indicates Apple might finally be making a move on the living room as well. More →
Microsoft has been the king of aggressive bundles this console generation. Gamers have had countless opportunities to pick up an Xbox One and get a newly released game for free, but the latest bundle brings something new to the table.
If you were paying attention during E3 2015, you might remember Microsoft announcing the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. With this new bundle, not only will you get the Elite Controller, you’ll also get a matte-finished Xbox One console with a new 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive, giving you a slight performance edge over everyone who bought the first 1TB bundle.

I haven’t stopped thinking about Final Fantasy XV ever since I played through the demo earlier this year. It has some kinks to work out, but development appears to be progressing as fast as we could hope from a Final Fantasy title.
