Here’s why PS4 and PS3 fans should be very excited right now

Summer can be a rough time of year for gamers. The slow release schedule coupled with the beginning of a new console generation has made this summer especially difficult, but things are finally going to start picking back up in August, as evidenced by a rather strong lineup of games for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

The mysterious case of the vanishing PS Vitas

If you’ve waited until now to try to get your hands on Sony’s latest portable console, you might be out of luck. Polygon has noted that even though the PS Vita was recently re-released with a slimmer frame and improved battery life, the Borderlands 2 bundle is currently out of stock at every major online retailer, including Target, Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop. The listing on Target even states that the bundle is “not sold in stores.” Amazon is no longer selling the bundle directly either — you’d have to go through a reseller to buy one from the online marketplace.

Sony PS4 PS Vita Sales

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

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.

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.

Sony E3 2014 Press Conference

We’ll be live from Sony’s E3 press conference today at 9:00PM!

We’ll be live from Sony’s E3 press conference today at 9:00PM!

Closing out the day, Sony is going to do everything in its power to retain the huge lead its been given early in this new console generation. With a $100 price advantage over the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 quickly established itself as the console to own in late 2013, which carried over into the new year supported by the PS4′s slightly more powerful hardware and an arguably better lineup of exclusives. Now that Microsoft has ditched Kinect to reach the $399 price tag, added its own offering of free monthly titles and fixed many of the software issues that plagued the Xbox One at launch, there’s only one weapon Sony has left in its arsenal: a lineup of great games. With The Order: 1886 delayed to 2014, what’s going to be the PS4 exclusive to watch for this fall? We should find out later today. More →

Soul Sacrifice Delta Review

Review: Soul Sacrifice Delta for PS Vita

Review: Soul Sacrifice Delta for PS Vita

Soul Sacrifice Delta is not a sequel to the PS Vita exclusive title that preceded it, but more like a director’s cut. All of the original content is intact with a few substantial additions which make this a tempting offer for fans of the original. If you never got around to playing the first release of Soul Sacrifice, you should think twice before discounting this as another Monster Hunter rip-off. More →

Review: Borderlands 2 for PS Vita

There aren’t many games that I’ve returned to after I’ve finished them. Borderlands 2 was one of those games. After storming through the campaign on my own when the game first released in 2012, I returned to the world of Pandora late last year to begin anew with a cooperative partner. Even with the plot still fresh in my mind, the limitless array of weaponry and the markedly different character classes give each play through new life. More →

Review: God of War Collection for PS Vita

God of War has been repackaged more than once in the nine years since its original release, but for good reason: it’s one of the best action franchises to ever hit Sony’s home console. The first port of the PlayStation 2 classic to reach retail was God of War Collection on the PlayStation 3, a compilation of the first two titles in the series on one disc. A third and fourth full console title and two well-received portable releases later, Sony has decided to revisit the original God of War Collection, bringing God of War I and God of War II to the PS Vita for the first time. But how do the classics hold up nearly a decade later? More →

Video: Here are your free PS4, PS3 and Vita games for April

Sony has announced the April Instant Game Collection lineup for PlayStation Plus subscribers on the PlayStation Blog.

Mercenary Kings pays homage to the 2D shooters of old with challenging enemies and customizable weaponry. More →

Strong iOS game sales could spell doom for the PS Vita and Wii U

The most recent Fiksu data indicates that the iOS app market is still chugging along nicely in America. The launch of the new iPhones triggered the usual fluctuations in September that we get just before new iPhone launches: First a decline in download volumes in the week before the launch, then a 25% spike in downloads as new phone owners go on an app binge.
