PS4 is best-selling console again in May as game sales swell 52%

As the previous console generation stretched into its eighth year, game sales had nearly slowed to a halt. It took the release of the PS4 and Xbox One to begin the recovery process, but May 2014 represents the first period in six months that software sales haven’t seen a decline. In fact, total video game sales were up 52% from May 2013, owing to both a 95% growth in hardware sales and the release of Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8. More →

For the first time in years, Sony is selling more game consoles than anyone else

It looks like 2014 is primed to be the year of the PlayStation. The Wall Street Journal reports that, for the first time in years, Sony has taken the lead with combined home console and portable hardware sales worldwide. After conceding to Nintendo last year by just 200,000 units, the popularity of the PlayStation 4 and continued adoption of the PS Vita have given Sony a comfortable lead at 18.7 million combined sales, 2.4 million over Nintendo and 7.2 million over Microsoft.

E3 Preview: Bloodborne is the faster, prettier sibling of Demon’s Souls

E3 Preview: Bloodborne is the faster, prettier sibling of Demon’s Souls

No matter how much you want it to be, Bloodborne is not a sequel to Demon’s Souls. Call it a spiritual successor if you want, but Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director of From Software, has been constantly telling the small group of press assembled to see Bloodborne in action for the first time that this is not another Souls game. Bloodborne is a different beast entirely. More →

E3 Day Two: I tried Sony’s virtual reality headset and it’s absolutely amazing

The first day of E3, as you can read in my Day One Report, was relatively tame. In between my meetings with Microsoft, I had plenty of time to explore the show floor, take some pictures for the inevitable E3 gallery and eat lunch at a reasonable hour. On the second day, that was not the case. More →

The Order 1886 E3 Preview

E3 Preview: ‘The Order: 1886′ brings cinematic warfare to the PS4

E3 Preview: ‘The Order: 1886′ brings cinematic warfare to the PS4

In many ways, The Order: 1886 is just another third-person, cover-based shooter. As a member of the eponymous Order, you’ll be equipped with the requisite weapons and equipment you need to take on the rebel forces and the half-breed monsters that have overrun 19th century London. Where this game differentiates itself from other games in the genre is its visual flare — The Order: 1886 looks like a film, and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. More →

Surgeon Simulator PS4 Announced

This PS4 game might make even hardcore gamers squeamish

This PS4 game might make even hardcore gamers squeamish

Gamers are pretty desensitized to blood and guts — after all, you can only blow off so many zombie heads or impale so many bandits before you just aren’t squeamish anymore. However, it’s one thing to have blood and random goo splatter everywhere, but it’s quite another to see actual organs taken out of people’s bodies and examined up close. Enter Surgeon Simulator, the game that lets you tear open a very unlucky patient and completely obliterate his vital organs with drills, hammers and other implements of destruction. More →

It looks like Sony just won E3

The annual E3 conference isn’t really a competition… but if it were, Sony would have just won. Microsoft and Sony each pulled out all the stops on Monday at E3 2014 and did their best to prove that this new console generation will be the best in history. Each company did a tremendous job, showing off exciting exclusive titles and revealing hotly anticipated non-exclusive games as well. Gamers in both camps will have plenty to be excited about in 2014 and 2015 but according to one industry watcher, E3 2014 painted the same picture we’ve seen since the PS4 and Xbox One were first unveiled: Sony is winning.

Live coverage: Sony’s huge PlayStation press conference from E3 2014

It might not have been what we expected, but Sony is coming into E3 2014 as the console maker to beat. With more exclusives, better specs and a less imposing price tag, the PS4 won the first battle of the new generation. Now, Sony might have taken an early lead, but with all the recent changes over at the Xbox camp, the most popular video game console of the generation needs to keep getting better to stay on top.
