Sony detailed the first major update for the PlayStation 4 on Wednesday, introducing the SHAREfactory video editor and the ability to pre-download games that haven’t hit the PlayStation Store yet. Despite its unending success in the marketplace, the PlayStation 4 has fallen behind the Xbox One recently in terms of additional features. Microsoft began patching Xbox One almost immediately after launch, adding an enhanced Twitch application, improving the party system and updating the UI. More →

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. One of the most requested console conversions of the generation, The Last of Us retains its spot as one of the ten highest rated PS3 games on Metacritic, garnering near universal praise when it released last year.

The Xbox One’s graphics performance is expected to significantly improve once Microsoft releases new DirectX 12 drivers.

Rumors of next-gen and PC releases for the best-selling Grand Theft Auto V have been floating around since long before the game even launched, but after months of silence from Rockstar, most of us had given up hope for an announcement anytime soon. It’s not much to go on, but considering how long it’s been since the gossip died down, we figured this potential leak was worth covering. TECH-NICK, manager of German retailer Saturn.de, said in a tweet that the release of GTA V for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is expected in June. He clarified in another tweet that the release information is only a rumor. Hopefully we’ll hear more at E3, which also happens to take place in June.

Winning the heart, minds and wallets of gamers around the world is the easy part. Winning over Dr. Sheldon Cooper, on the other hand, is the ultimate challenge for the new console generation.

We’re now well past the initial launch phase of the next-generation video game console “war” that began last November when Sony and Microsoft each launched their new console offerings. Sales of both systems exploded out of the gate, but the PlayStation 4 soon pulled ahead and now the Xbox One trails by an increasing margin. At last count, Sony sold more than 6 million units through the beginning of March, while Microsoft’s last official sales figure was 3 million Xbox One units sold in 2013. Now, according to the latest sales estimates, Sony’s PS4 may in fact be widening its lead over the Xbox One. More →

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.

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.
