Sony previews the biggest PS4 update yet

As we’ve discussed repeatedly over the past several months, the PlayStation 4 has been lagging behind the Xbox One in a major way when it comes to software updates. Microsoft’s monthly updates have given Xbox One owners a lot to look forward to while PS4 owners wait patiently for Sony catch up. It’s taken a bit longer than I would have liked, but the PlayStation team plans to take care of all the PS4’s issues in one fell swoop with system software 2.00. More →

Driveclub review: Club seats

For such a young console generation, Driveclub has a surprisingly checked past. After several delays and some unfortunate disruption at Evolution Studios, Driveclub is finally coming to the PlayStation 4, 11 months after its original release date. It’s hard to say whether or not it benefitted from the added development time, but all in all, the team has put together something that is sure to satisfy the restless PS4 owners who can’t wait to get back behind the wheel.

Destiny review: Lonely planets

Destiny is one of the most high-concept releases to ever reach home consoles.

But that’s the reality we live in. More →
