PS4 Sales 2016

Things aren’t looking good for the Xbox One as PS4 sales top 40 million

This console generation is unlike any that has come before it. Last cycle’s Xbox 360 from Microsoft and PlayStation 3 from Sony were neck and neck throughout the years, and lifetime sales ended up within a couple million units of each other by all counts. Then you had the Nintendo Wii, which blew them both away and topped 100 million units. But this time around it’s a completely different story. Nintendo’s Wii U is a complete disaster that’s already on its way out, and PS4 sales have nearly doubled Xbox One sales thanks in large part to a price gap and huge PR missteps early on.

Now, Sony has announced new sales numbers for its popular PlayStation 4 console and things aren’t looking good at all for Microsoft. More →

Uncharted 4 Review

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review: Blurring the lines between game and film

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review: Blurring the lines between game and film

This isn’t how I wanted to begin this review, but I think it’s important to get it out of the way as quickly as possible: the Uncharted series has never done much for me.

I’ve been in awe of the visuals and appreciated the storytelling chops of the writers, but the action on screen was so often at odds with the plot that I could never really find a foothold into the world that Naughty Dog had created.

Although it has its fair share of contradictions as well, Uncharted 4 is the first game in the series that has really hooked me, and now I’m finally starting to see what I imagine everyone else saw when Uncharted hit the PS3 in 2007.

Sony executive hints that there might never be a PlayStation 5

We’re only a few years into the latest generation of gaming consoles, but that hasn’t stopped gamers from speculating about future hardware. Even as the PS4 and Xbox One continue to fly off store shelves, analysts and consumers alike have begun to assume that these could be the last standalone home consoles.

Adding fuel to the fire, one Sony executive seemed to imply to a developer not only that the PlayStation 5 wasn’t in production, but that there might not be a PS5 at all.

5 games that convinced me PlayStation VR is going to be a hit this fall

The dawn of VR gaming came and went without a great deal of fanfare. Sure, every technology blog on the internet is excitedly declaring virtual reality to be the next big thing, but the average consumer (or even the average gamer) simply doesn’t have the hardware to run a game in VR.

That’s where PlayStation VR is going to break boundaries this fall.
