How the PS4 took a lead over the Xbox One before it even existed

One of the keys to the early success of the PlayStation 4 was its release date. When Sony took the stage in February last year to reveal the PS4, everyone was a bit taken aback, Sony included. Speaking at the Develop Conference in Brighton, SCEI President Andrew House admitted that although Sony wasn’t prepared to show off the new console at the time, the company knew that it wanted to be the first on the scene.

Here’s everything you need to know about Dragon Age: Inquisition

Some of the most exciting games we saw at E3 won’t see the light of day until 2015 at the earliest, but Dragon Age: Inquisition, the first new generation title from BioWare, is coming at the beginning October and there’s still a great deal we don’t know. That’s why BioWare took to Raptr for an lengthy Q&A session with fans of the series, answering dozens of questions about the game’s story, mechanics, romantic interests and returning characters.

Here’s how Android TV could compete with PS4, Xbox One

Android gaming consoles haven’t had any success to speak of thus far, from the swift decline of the Ouya to the overlooked debuts of M.O.J.O. and GameStick, but Android TV might be the first platform capable of bringing Google Play Games to the television. More →

PS4 TV Ad Spending

Yet another way that the PS4 is wiping the floor with the competition

Yet another way that the PS4 is wiping the floor with the competition

The PlayStation 4 took an early lead last fall, partially because of Microsoft’s PR stumbles and partially because of a promising lineup of exclusives scheduled to release in the following months, but Sony isn’t giving Microsoft a chance to catch up. The Wall Street Journal shares the latest data from research firm iSpot, which shows that Sony has spent nearly $60 million on TV advertisements for the PS4 since the beginning of 2014. More →

The PS4’s surprising summer sales weakness

The PS4’s surprising summer sales weakness

The strong early sales performances of the Xbox One and PS4 consoles have caused some jubilation. The PS4 is clearly leading the Xbox One in sales volume at this point, but both consoles can be claimed to have beaten expectations at least marginally. One sign of this strength can be found in the share prices of Electronic Arts and Activision, which have jumped giddily since the new consoles hit stores.

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 →

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 →

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.
