Here’s how you can play Destiny on PS4 and Xbox One before everyone else

Some lucky gamers got a sneak peek of Destiny, Bungie’s new massively multiplayer shooter during a short First Look Alpha test earlier this month, but the beta test will bring in a much larger crowd. Unlike the alpha, the Destiny beta will be available on every current and last-gen console, including the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. PlayStation owners will get in first on July 17th, but Xbox gamers will be able to join before the end of the month. More →

Xbox One Vs. Ps4

Sony execs were ‘dancing in the aisles’ watching Microsoft’s Xbox One blunders

Sony execs were ‘dancing in the aisles’ watching Microsoft’s Xbox One blunders

It’s been said before but it bears repeating: Microsoft inexplicably shot itself in the foot in creative and amazing ways when it unveiled the Xbox One last year. Whether it was telling gamers who didn’t want to check in online once a day to buy an Xbox 360 or being completely unable to coherently explain its reasons for putting new restrictions on used games, Microsoft spent 2013′s E3 making one unforced error after another. To the company’s credit, it has backtracked off some of its most controversial decisions but that may not have been enough to fully reverse the damage that Microsoft did to itself last year. More →

PS4 Important Missing Features

Two important missing PS4 features are still ‘not ready yet’

Two important missing PS4 features are still ‘not ready yet’

Console launches, much like elected officials, never quite live up to their promises. When Sony and Microsoft spoke of all the revolutionary features that would be present on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, we knew we should remain cautiously optimistic until they were actually sitting in our living rooms. As expected, a few of those features weren’t finished in time for launch, but at least for the PS4, Sony says they aren’t dead yet. More →

Sony PS4 Stock Shortages

The PS4 may be too popular for its own good

The PS4 may be too popular for its own good

It’s hard to imagine Sony would have much to complain about given that the PlayStation 4 is continually toppling its competition from Nintendo and Microsoft month after month, but stock shortages, which were heavily reported around the console’s launch, have apparently endured throughout 2014. Speaking with TrustedReviews, Sony admitted that the PS4 is just now beginning to close in on a full production run. More →

Here are all 40 PS4 exclusives scheduled to release in 2014

If we learned anything at E3 this year, it’s that 2015 is going to be packed with some of the biggest releases of the decade.

PSGamer has put together a list of 40 PS4 exclusives that are still expected to release in 2014, more than enough to keep many gamers occupied until next year. More →

My 5 most anticipated games of 2015 after E3 this year

2015 is going to be the year that all the potential of next-gen finally comes to fruition. With an extensive amount of development behind them, both major developers and indie studios alike will have the experience necessary to start taking advantage of the power within the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. We can see glimmers of what this generation will be in some recent releases such as Watch Dogs and Titanfall, but we’ve only scratched the surface. In 2015, we’ll have arrived.

PS4 is best-selling console again in May as game sales swell 52%

As the previous console generation stretched into its eighth year, game sales had nearly slowed to a halt. It took the release of the PS4 and Xbox One to begin the recovery process, but May 2014 represents the first period in six months that software sales haven’t seen a decline. In fact, total video game sales were up 52% from May 2013, owing to both a 95% growth in hardware sales and the release of Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8. More →

Sony PS4 PS Vita Sales

For the first time in years, Sony is selling more game consoles than anyone else

For the first time in years, Sony is selling more game consoles than anyone else

It looks like 2014 is primed to be the year of the PlayStation. The Wall Street Journal reports that, for the first time in years, Sony has taken the lead with combined home console and portable hardware sales worldwide. After conceding to Nintendo last year by just 200,000 units, the popularity of the PlayStation 4 and continued adoption of the PS Vita have given Sony a comfortable lead at 18.7 million combined sales, 2.4 million over Nintendo and 7.2 million over Microsoft.

E3 Preview: Bloodborne is the faster, prettier sibling of Demon’s Souls

No matter how much you want it to be, Bloodborne is not a sequel to Demon’s Souls. Call it a spiritual successor if you want, but Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director of From Software, has been constantly telling the small group of press assembled to see Bloodborne in action for the first time that this is not another Souls game. Bloodborne is a different beast entirely. More →

E3 Day Two: I tried Sony’s virtual reality headset and it’s absolutely amazing

The first day of E3, as you can read in my Day One Report, was relatively tame. In between my meetings with Microsoft, I had plenty of time to explore the show floor, take some pictures for the inevitable E3 gallery and eat lunch at a reasonable hour. On the second day, that was not the case. More →

The Order 1886 E3 Preview

E3 Preview: ‘The Order: 1886′ brings cinematic warfare to the PS4

E3 Preview: ‘The Order: 1886′ brings cinematic warfare to the PS4

In many ways, The Order: 1886 is just another third-person, cover-based shooter. As a member of the eponymous Order, you’ll be equipped with the requisite weapons and equipment you need to take on the rebel forces and the half-breed monsters that have overrun 19th century London. Where this game differentiates itself from other games in the genre is its visual flare — The Order: 1886 looks like a film, and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. More →
