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.

PlayStation Mobile is dead

Everything has been coming up roses for the PlayStation brand over the past year, but it’s finally time for some bad news.

Sony announced on Wednesday that PlayStation Mobile will be shutting down for good before the end of the year. If you weren’t aware of PlayStation Mobile, it was Sony’s initiative to bring bite-sized games to both Android devices and the PS Vita, but it clearly never attracted a large enough audience to take off.

PS4 Suspend Mode

The PlayStation 4’s most anticipated feature is coming in the next update

The PlayStation 4’s most anticipated feature is coming in the next update

I’ve been up front about my feelings regarding Sony’s disappointing pace for PS4 updates. The Xbox One monthly update schedule is not only impressive, but it also gives gamers a reason to come back and check out new features even when game releases begin to slow down. PS4 owners, on the other hand, have to wait months for any significant updates.

There’s no sign of that changing any time soon, but Sony might be able to at least appease disappointed PS4 owners (like me) by adding a significant new feature in the next update. More →
