The Last of Us, one of the PS3′s best games, is coming to PS4

Naughty Dog announced on Thursday that the critically acclaimed action-adventure game The Last of Us will be coming to the PlayStation 4 this summer.

Before the PlayStation 4 even hit stores, fans of the game were already clamoring for a next-gen conversion, but developer Naughty Dog remained silent on the matter until this week. More →

Sony won’t jump on the Android Wear bandwagon just yet [updated]

Sony, which has been making Android-based smartwatches before other OEMs showed interest in launching such products of their own, said it won’t leave its own platform for Android Wear in the future. “We’ve already invested time and resources on this platform, and we will continue in that direction,” Sony Mobile U.S. chief Ravi Nookala told CNET in an interview.

Insider claims PS1 and PS2 games will be coming to the PS4 in 1080p

It’s been a few months since we last heard any news regarding PlayStation and PlayStation 2 game emulation on the PS4, but according to an inside source, the software is well on its way to release. Ahsan Rasheed, a game industry tipster with some clout, has revealed through a series of tweets that Sony is working to bring local support for PS1 and PS2 games to the PS4 with native 1080p rendering for select titles. This goes hand in hand with a report from January which also claimed that classic game emulation would be coming to the PS4, separate from PlayStation Now game streaming.

PS4 Hardware Sales Double

PS4 sales reportedly double as Infamous: Second Son launches

By on March 24, 2014 at 4:48 PM.

PS4 sales reportedly double as Infamous: Second Son launches

After Titanfall gave the Xbox One the boost it needed two weeks ago, Sony has come back swinging with Infamous: Second Son. MCV reports that PS4 hardware sales in the U.K. have increased by 106% since the game’s release, an even bigger surge than Titanfall gave the Xbox One during its launch week. Infamous also debuted at number one on the U.K. game charts, pushing Titanfall to third place behind Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. We haven’t seen the official numbers for either Titanfall or Infamous quite yet, but these reports are giving us the impression that the battle of the exclusives is going to be fairly close. Game releases are going to slow down again in April, but expect a huge summer as Sony and Microsoft prepare for a very important E3. Check out our review for Infamous: Second Son if you haven’t already.

Sony pulls a Netflix, will offer exclusive TV shows for PS4

Sony has some pretty big ambitions for the PlayStation 4 that go well beyond gaming. The Wall Street Journal reports that Sony plans to release several TV shows that will be shown exclusively though PlayStation 4 consoles, starting with a supernatural detective show called “Powers” that will be produced by the company’s own Sony Pictures Television studio. The Journal says that Sony’s plans to offer its own exclusive content will be separate from its planned pay TV service for the PS4 that will deliver channels that have traditionally been delivered by cable and satellite TV companies.

Sony PS4 Supply And Demand

Sony says there won’t be enough PS4s to go around until summer

Sony says there won’t be enough PS4s to go around until summer

If there’s any downside to the massive demand for the PlayStation 4, it’s that some consumers still haven’t had a chance to buy the new console. According to Sony, this trend will likely continue until the “early summer months,” when supply will finally meet demand, reports The Wall Street Journal. Anxious gamers will finally get a chance to pick up a PS4 without having to resort to expensive bundles or long trips to a retailer with the console in stock. With the launch of Infamous: Second Son just hours away, demand for the console is likely to be as high as ever. We’ll keep an eye out to see if retailers struggle to keep up over the weekend.

Infamous: Second Son Review

Review: ‘Infamous: Second Son’

Review: ‘Infamous: Second Son’

Infamous: Second Son made me want to move to Seattle. The brilliant, yet occasionally frustrating thing about a new generation of consoles is how distracting the visuals can be. The Seattle of Infamous: Second Son is vibrant, gorgeous and impeccably detailed, enough to lure you away from the task at hand to poke around and see just how much effort was put into the creation of this world. When you’re finally ready to get back on track, you’re going to find yourself immersed in the best single-player campaign of any game on the PlayStation 4. But is that enough? More →

Sony unveils Project Morpheus, its virtual reality headset for the PS4

The rumors were true: Sony really has developed a virtual reality headset and it unveiled it at the Game Developers Conference on Tuesday.
