This ‘sexy’ PS4 commercial is actually so offensive that Sony had to pull it

Sony has published a new PlayStation 4 ad on its European PlayStation channel, but pulled it rather fast (technically, the ad is listed as private) after realizing the commercial can be perceived as quite offensive to a certain group of gamers. The ad — which is still available on YouTube, as it has been quickly reposted by others — features an attractive female doctor who seems to suggest the viewer has been “furiously masturbating,” as Business Insider puts it.

You can now play Destiny for free, and save your progress for when you purchase it

Destiny has been a big success so far, at least when it comes to overall sales, but that doesn’t mean Bungie is happy with the number of copies it has sold to date. The company is now letting curious players who aren’t sure whether they should spend $60 on Destiny try the game free of charge. Even more interesting, the free trial includes the option for gamers to save their progress and continue the game from where they left off as soon as they purchase the full game. More →

Some crafty customers tricked Walmart into selling the PS4 for $90 – here’s how

“We’re committed to providing low prices every day, on everything,” Walmart says on its website. “So if you find a current lower online price from an online retailer on an identical, in-stock product, tell us and we’ll match it.”

LittleBigPlanet 3 review: Small worlds after all

As much as I want to love every entry, I always seem to run into things that drive me up the wall to the point that I never stick around long enough to see all the incredible inventions that players have published online.

One year later: The state of PS4 and Xbox One

A year ago this month, we were introduced to the next generation of game consoles: the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Despite the lack of game releases, most of us were just relieved that new consoles had finally hit the market. We’d spent nearly a decade waiting for this moment and it was finally here.

But as with any new gadget, the luster began to fade and both Sony and Microsoft had to prove that these investments of several hundred dollars were worth our time and money. One year later, we’re checking in to see how they’ve done. More →

These are the most ridiculous Assassin’s Creed Unity glitches

Earlier this week, Ubisoft released the first Assassin’s Creed game exclusive to the new-generation consoles.
