Customize your PS4 and PS Vita with themes in the next major updates

The success of the PlayStation 4 in the international market has been well-documented, but that doesn’t mean Sony’s latest home console is without its own unique flaws. In our review last fall, we noted that the app stream on the dashboard was going to become problematic as the PS4’s library began to expand, yet Sony still hasn’t found a way to address the issue in any of its recent updates. In the meantime, the company plans to distract us with dashboard themes. More →

Don’t worry, GTA V is still coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC this fall

One of the most anticipated next-gen titles of the holiday season is already out… but just not on the platforms we want it. Rockstar Games announced at E3 2014 that Grand Theft Auto V would be making the transition to the PS4, Xbox One and PC this fall, but three months later, we haven’t heard or seen any new signs of the highly anticipated port. Rumors began to spread that GTA V might be delayed, but Rockstar wants to ensure fans that the game is still on track. More →

PS4 and Xbox One are fighting back against mobile and PC gaming

Over the last several years, there has been a paradigm shift in the gaming industry. Consoles, unchallenged for years as the PC market faded, slowly started to lose ground as smartphones and tablets became competent gaming platforms. Suddenly, everyone was playing games on their mobiles devices, from casual fans to hardcore gamers. Things got even more contentious when Steam hit the scene, bringing triple-A and indie developers alike back to the PC in droves. More →

Infamous First Light Review

Infamous: First Light review: Highlighting the heroine

Infamous: First Light review: Highlighting the heroine

Despite being one of the standout console exclusives of 2014, Infamous: Second Son had one egregious flaw — we never got to know any of the secondary characters. Some of the best moments of the Infamous series revolve around the interactions between the protagonist and his companions, but Sucker Punch failed to flesh out the colorful cast in Second Son. Infamous: First Light is how they’re going to fill in the blanks. More →

Sony has confirmed that a massive DDoS attack took down its popular online gaming network this past weekend, leaving millions of gamers out in the cold as they tried to connect to the service. Two different entities, a hacker group called “Lizard Squad” and a lone hacker named “Fame,” both claimed responsibility for the PlayStation Network attack, but an investigation is ongoing.

CounterSpy Review

CounterSpy review: Your mission, should you choose to accept it

CounterSpy review: Your mission, should you choose to accept it

I’ve never been particularly good at stealth games. Either I don’t have the patience or I’m just not savvy enough to pick up on important cues from the bad guys, but my experiences have been repeatedly soured by my lack of skill. Fortunately, CounterSpy is a very different kind of stealth game, but all of the best aspects from the genre have been carried over. It’s a thoughtful, fast-paced game with impeccable style and enough collectables to keep you coming back for more even after you’ve saved the world once or twice. More →

Sony exec admits he doesn’t understand why the PS4 is so popular

It’s safe to say that even Sony is surprised by how popular the PlayStation 4 has been. In an interview with Eurogamer, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida says that while the company is obviously pleased with how many consoles it’s sold so far, it’s a little apprehensive about it because it really has no idea why it’s this popular.

We have plenty of great games to look forward to this fall, from console exclusives like Sunset Overdrive and Driveclub to huge third-party releases in the Call of Duty, Battlefield and Assassin’s Creed franchises, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about 2015. And one 2015 release that quickly shot to the top of our most anticipated list after E3 this year was The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. More →
