Watch the PS4 Slim being powered on for the first time

Over the weekend, we saw the first leaked images of the upcoming “PS4 Slim” — a slimmer PlayStation 4 console that is expected to be unveiled alongside the PS4 Neo at Sony’s PlayStation Meeting in New York next month.

The leak was about as convincing as they come, but in case you were still skeptical about the console’s legitimacy, a new video all but proves it.

This is our first look at one of the two brand new PS4 consoles launching next month

Sony has scheduled a media event for September 7th where the company is expected to unveil an upgraded version of the PlayStation 4 – sadly for Sony, the tech world will focus on a different company that day.

No Man's Sky Infinite Item Exploit

‘No Man’s Sky’ exploit breaks the game’s economy, lets players farm rare items

‘No Man’s Sky’ exploit breaks the game’s economy, lets players farm rare items

One of the first things you’re going to want to do when you start playing No Man’s Sky is upgrade to a new ship. As you’d expect, buying a brand new spaceship isn’t cheap, so you’re going to have to save up units (the in-game currency) before you can make an extravagant purchase. Normally, this would take hours of resource gathering and trading on the galactic market, but some clever players have found an exploit that allows them to duplicate the game’s most valuable items.

No Man's Sky Review Pt. 1

‘No Man’s Sky’ early impressions: Surprisingly familiar and completely alien all at once

‘No Man’s Sky’ early impressions: Surprisingly familiar and completely alien all at once

There’s never been a game like No Man’s Sky before, and there might never be a game like it again. But it’s important to remember that, despite all of the hype and expectations, No Man’s Sky is still just that: a game.

It’s not the future of entertainment, it’s not the culmination of decades of game development and it’s not going to change your life. It’s a game. But it’s also different than any other game before it — subtly so in some ways, drastically so in others.

Although I’ve only spent around 8-10 hours with the game (half pre-patch, half post-patch), I’m going to do my best to explain what exactly No Man’s Sky is, and why it’s such a hard game to classify or define.

No Man's Sky Day One Patch

‘No Man’s Sky’ is receiving the most significant day one patch of all time

‘No Man’s Sky’ is receiving the most significant day one patch of all time

Over the weekend, I, like several other impatient gamers, got my hands on a copy of No Man’s Sky. In spite of my best judgment, I had to know what the game looked like before developer Hello Games had a chance to release the day one patch, which they repeatedly insisted would noticeably change the game.

I had my doubts, but after reading the patch notes for Update 1.03, I can assure you that this is the most significant day one patch ever released.

Four videos that will show you everything you need to know about ‘No Man’s Sky’

For many gamers, No Man’s Sky is not only the most exciting release of August, but one of the most anticipated releases of the entire console generation so far.

Originally unveiled at the VGX awards in 2013, No Man’s Sky is an ambitious space game set in a universe made up of over 18 quintillion planets, all of which you can visit and explore. And these aren’t the game worlds you’re used to either — these are actual planet-sized planets, some the size of Earth itself.

PS4 Slim Release Date Rumor

Sony’s answer to the Xbox One S expected to launch in September

By on June 30, 2016 at 6:30 PM.

Sony’s answer to the Xbox One S expected to launch in September

One of the biggest surprises of E3 2016 was the lack of new hardware on display. Although Microsoft used its press conference to unveil both the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio, Nintendo and Sony decided to save their hardware announcements for a later date. There’s no telling how long we’ll have to wait to see the NX, but it sounds like we might only be a few months out from a PS4 Slim.

PlayStation VR Future of Virtual Reality

If VR is going to have a future, PlayStation VR can’t fail

By on June 30, 2016 at 12:14 PM.

If VR is going to have a future, PlayStation VR can’t fail

It has been a very, very long time since a peripheral has shaken up the game industry. EyeToy was a bust, Kinect died a slow, excruciating death and there’s a pretty good chance you’d completely forgotten about the GBA e-Reader.

All of those hardware add-ons failed (or are in the process of failing), but it never really mattered. They took a risk; it didn’t pan out; we all moved on.

With all of that failure in the rearview mirror, PlayStation VR has a mighty tough row to hoe, but if VR really is the future of gaming, it simply can’t fail.

You can play PlayStation VR at these retailers starting tomorrow

Although Sony didn’t have any new consoles to announce at E3 2016, there was one piece of hardware that stole the spotlight during the company’s press conference: the PlayStation VR. Launching this fall, the PlayStation VR will be the first consumer VR headset that doesn’t require a beastly PC, and later this week, you’ll be able to try the headset for yourself at select retailers.

PlayStation vs. Xbox E3 2016

PlayStation vs. Xbox: Who won E3 2016?

PlayStation vs. Xbox: Who won E3 2016?

Every year, Sony and Microsoft attempt to top one another at E3. Every year, the gaming public inevitably begins arguing about who “won” the show, despite the fact that this is an inherently ridiculous exercise. E3 is the biggest marketing push in the industry — if you tuned in for both press conferences, they both won.

But as ridiculous as it may be, it’s still incredibly fun to pick a winner so that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Feel free to disagree wholeheartedly.

Sony E3 2016 Best Reveals

The 9 most exciting announcements from Sony’s E3 2016 event

When Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4K wouldn’t be present at E3 2016, it was hard to imagine how the company’s press conference would compete with that of Microsoft, which featured not one, but two new hardware announcements. As it turns out, if you pack enough incredible looking games into your event, fans stop worrying about whether or not they’ll be able to play them in 4K.
