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 →

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 →

If we learned anything at E3 this year, it’s that 2015 is going to be packed with some of the biggest releases of the decade.

PSGamer has put together a list of 40 PS4 exclusives that are still expected to release in 2014, more than enough to keep many gamers occupied until next year. 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 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 →

E3 Day One Report: Every game I played on the first day

My goal this year at E3 was to get hands-on time with as many games as I possibly could. Between booth tours, meetings and running around the show floor, I’m well on my way to exceeding my own expectations, so I figured I would keep a log of every game I played each day at E3.

It looks like Sony just won E3

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.
