As we’ve discussed countless times over the course of this console generation, the PlayStation 4 is the clear winner in terms of international sales. Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s stumbles and appealed to a larger audience than it ever had it the past. At last count, Sony had sold over 25 million units… but Microsoft still hasn’t grown concerned. More →
I’ve gone back and forth on the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive adventure horror game Until Dawn, but after spending a few hours with a preview code last month, I think I’m more excited than I am skeptical for the retail release. It’s a pitch perfect teen horror story, chock full of all the tropes you’d expect from a summer movie, but it’s genuinely scary as well. More →
Every month for the past several years, Sony has released a selection of free PS3 games for PlayStation Plus subscribers. PS Vita and PS4 games were added to the list after the launch of those consoles, and now Sony is mixing it up once again by allowing PS4 owners to vote for one of the games they’ll receive for free beginning next month.

When Microsoft announced backward compatibility for the Xbox One at E3 2015, I began to see the first signs of the tide shifting in Microsoft’s favor. After flubbing the reveal of its new-gen console, Microsoft has been doing everything in its power to restore the faith of its fans, from bringing in Phil Spencer as Xbox head to launching an endless stream of affordable bundles.
Despite the fact that we’ve seen a few big releases over the past couple of months, the summer video game lull is still in full effect. We still have over a month until September arrives and the schedule begins to pick up, but in the meantime, there are plenty of free games to download on the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. More →
The release of a remastered Uncharted collection for the PlayStation 4 was basically inevitable. It’s one of the tentpole franchises of the PlayStation brand, and all three titles received rave reviews at launch.
What I’m saying is that Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection was a no-brainer, but thankfully, the teams at Naughty Dog and Bluepoint Games appear to be handling the project with the care and attention it deserves. More →
With E3 2015 in the rearview mirror, the fall video game release season can’t come soon enough. Of course, fall is still months away, so we have to find something to entertain ourselves in the meantime. Thankfully, on Tuesday, Sony unveiled its latest PlayStation Store PLAY summer lineup, featuring four games that will keep PS4 owners occupied for at least the next month. More →
I don’t often have the time to review smaller downloadable games on the site, but I had to make an exception for Rocket League. I first got my hands on Rocket League during a closed beta earlier this year. Within minutes, I was completely captivated.
For a week straight, I’d hop online after work every night with my friend and play a dozen or so matches against other players. It was the first time in a long time that I couldn’t help but play just one more round. And then one more. And then another. But even after spending an embarrassing number of hours on the beta, I still hadn’t gotten enough. More →
It might not have been the most surprising trailer at E3 2015, but the stage demo for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End certainly knew how to get our adrenaline pumping. There were firefights and daring escapes and car crashes, but the trailer was abruptly cut off just moments before Nathan Drake slammed into the side of a bridge.
After putting diehard fans into cardiac arrest during its E3 2015 press conference, Sony couldn’t possibly surprise anyone with its Instant Game Collection for July 2015. But even with expectations at an all time high, the company seems to have delivered a pretty solid offering, highlighted by a game that I haven’t stopped talking about since May.
With all the exciting news coming out of Los Angeles during E3 last week, you might be one of the many gamers who decided it was finally time to rush out and buy a PlayStation 4. But now that’s you’ve spent a few hundred dollars on the console, what are you supposed to play? It might be a good idea to start in the Free-to-Play section of the PlayStation Store, which got a huge boost this week. More →
Just as quickly as it arrived, E3 2015 has packed its bags and ditched the Los Angeles Convention Center once again, leaving in its wake enough excitement to fill up a calendar year. Microsoft held the most consistently entertaining conference I’ve ever attended, Sony tried to make all of our dreams come true and Nintendo wound up apologizing for its lineup.
But none of that matters — I know that there’s only one thing you care about: Who won E3?
