PS4 1TB Hard Drive Model

A new and improved PS4 with 1TB of storage is in the works

A new and improved PS4 with 1TB of storage is in the works

If you’ve owned a PlayStation 4 since launch day, there’s a decent chance you’ve hit a wall when it comes to internal storage. 500GB might sound like a lot, but when the average triple-A game can take up 30-40GB, space vanishes quickly. Sony has made it possible for users to manually replace their hard drives, but if that sounds like too much of a hassle, it might be worth waiting on an official 1TB model.

Leaked document suggests a PS4 price drop is coming later this year

If you’ve been holding out for a PlayStation 4 price drop, you might be in luck. On Wednesday, WholesomeGamer was tipped off that Sony’s official retail loyalty site, intended to reward verified video game retail employees, is currently running a promotion which gives members the chance to win a PS4, PS Vita and other prizes.

Within the rules of the promotion, Sony lists the ARV (average retail value) of each prize, but here’s the catch: the prices listed don’t match up with the current MSRP of the PS4 or the Vita. More →

Xbox One vs. PS4

Xbox One takes a surprising lead over the PS4 in April

Xbox One takes a surprising lead over the PS4 in April

Ever since temporarily losing its grasp on the top spot over the holidays, the PlayStation 4 has been the console to beat in 2015. With a few huge exclusive releases early in the year, such as The Order: 1886Bloodborne and MLB 15: The Show, it looked like Sony was going to run away with the first half of 2015… which is why the NPD results from April are especially shocking.

Sony’s favorite smartphone: The iPhone 6

Sony’s favorite smartphone: The iPhone 6

Sony’s mobile business is struggling, to say the least. In the United States, Sony smartphones are essentially non starters at this point. Even abroad, the company’s phones are struggling to compete against higher profile devices from the likes of Samsung. The company’s smartphone unit lost billions in 2014, and rumors suggest the company is considering an exit from the smartphone business so it can focus on more profitable units.

While its own smartphones are causing nothing but headaches at Sony right now, there is one smartphone that Sony absolutely adores: Apple’s iPhone 6. More →

MLB 15 The Show Review

MLB 15 The Show review: Infield fly

MLB 15 The Show review: Infield fly

When I elected to review MLB 14 The Show last year, I thought I might be in over my head. I hadn’t played any of the recent entries in the series and I didn’t think I would fare especially well within the game, regardless of how well put together it was. Thankfully, my worries were misplaced, and I found myself immersed in a sports game for the first time in years.

I was hoping to have a similar experience with MLB 15 The Show, but after spending hours with San Diego Studio’s sequel, I have begun to see through the veneer of the improved visuals and have found a game that feels more like a step backwards than a home run.
