As we’ve discussed countless times over the course of this console generation, the PlayStation 4 is the clear winner in terms of international sales. Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s stumbles and appealed to a larger audience than it ever had it the past. At last count, Sony had sold over 25 million units… but Microsoft still hasn’t grown concerned. More →
Amazon doesn’t just have one deal of the day, it also has a bonus deal each day… and today’s bonus deal is most certainly a good one. You can grab a truly solid pair of headphones for a great price in the bonus deal. We are talking about the Sony MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones, and they are up for grabs at 50% off the full retail price with free Prime shipping. More →
Every month for the past several years, Sony has released a selection of free PS3 games for PlayStation Plus subscribers. PS Vita and PS4 games were added to the list after the launch of those consoles, and now Sony is mixing it up once again by allowing PS4 owners to vote for one of the games they’ll receive for free beginning next month.

When Microsoft announced backward compatibility for the Xbox One at E3 2015, I began to see the first signs of the tide shifting in Microsoft’s favor. After flubbing the reveal of its new-gen console, Microsoft has been doing everything in its power to restore the faith of its fans, from bringing in Phil Spencer as Xbox head to launching an endless stream of affordable bundles.
Despite the fact that we’ve seen a few big releases over the past couple of months, the summer video game lull is still in full effect. We still have over a month until September arrives and the schedule begins to pick up, but in the meantime, there are plenty of free games to download on the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. More →
When Prime Day kicked off last week, I think it took a few hours for the harsh reality of the situation to sink in. Amazon hyped up a sale that would eclipse Black Friday, and instead what we got was a clearance sale of junk that must have been sitting in the back of a warehouse somewhere. It really stunk, but thankfully, now that Prime Day is over, the worthwhile deals have returned. More →
Every time I get my eyes on the latest VR project, it further strengthens my resolve that virtual reality is more than another fad. When the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus launch next year, the landscape of gaming is going to begin to change, and it’s concepts like The London Heist that are going to lead the way. More →
The release of a remastered Uncharted collection for the PlayStation 4 was basically inevitable. It’s one of the tentpole franchises of the PlayStation brand, and all three titles received rave reviews at launch.
What I’m saying is that Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection was a no-brainer, but thankfully, the teams at Naughty Dog and Bluepoint Games appear to be handling the project with the care and attention it deserves. More →
With E3 2015 in the rearview mirror, the fall video game release season can’t come soon enough. Of course, fall is still months away, so we have to find something to entertain ourselves in the meantime. Thankfully, on Tuesday, Sony unveiled its latest PlayStation Store PLAY summer lineup, featuring four games that will keep PS4 owners occupied for at least the next month. More →
After putting diehard fans into cardiac arrest during its E3 2015 press conference, Sony couldn’t possibly surprise anyone with its Instant Game Collection for July 2015. But even with expectations at an all time high, the company seems to have delivered a pretty solid offering, highlighted by a game that I haven’t stopped talking about since May.
With all the exciting news coming out of Los Angeles during E3 last week, you might be one of the many gamers who decided it was finally time to rush out and buy a PlayStation 4. But now that’s you’ve spent a few hundred dollars on the console, what are you supposed to play? It might be a good idea to start in the Free-to-Play section of the PlayStation Store, which got a huge boost this week. More →
Microsoft had a heck of an E3 this year. From the first announcement to the last demonstration, the company’s E3 press conference was a fan-favorite in 2015. And the company’s Minecraft demo on HoloLens was absolutely mind-blowing. It was a much-needed win for Microsoft, which has been lagging behind Sony since their current-generation video game consoles first launched ahead of the holidays in 2013.
The first announcement Microsoft made during its E3 event was Xbox One backwards compatibility, which will allow Xbox One owners to play many of their old Xbox 360 games on their new consoles. PS4 owners have been wondering whether or not the same feature would be added to the PlayStation 4, and now they finally have their answer. More →
