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.
PlayStation Plus subscribers rejoice: the latest batch of free games for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita were just announced. May’s collection consists of some of the best indie games from the past few years, which means you won’t need to clear a bunch of gigabytes on your PS4’s hard drive in order to download them all.

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.
Sony on Monday unveiled its next flagship Android smartphone, the Xperia Z4 that appeared in a plethora of rumors so far. Unfortunately, the company has only announced the handset for its home market, meaning that Android fans from countries other than Japan won’t be able to really purchase it yet. However, Sony has planned a flagship announcement for international markets for late May, according to Russian publication Hi-Tech.mail.ru. More →
Another month, another batch of free games from Sony. Once you finally work your way through Bloodborne (providing you ever actually reach the end), you’re going to want to download some great free games in order to wind down. Just make sure that PS Plus subscription is still active.
After months of waiting, the most anticipated feature is finally coming to the PS4. On Thursday, system update 2.50 will finally go live, bringing Suspend/Resume functionality to the PS4. This will allow users to put their consoles into Rest Mode without shutting down any active applications. More →
Sony confirmed last week that the long-awaited Suspend/Resume feature would be a part of the upcoming 2.50 firmware update for the PS4. The update will also include accessibility options, trophy improvements, Dailymotion uploading and the ability to record and stream at 60 frames per second, but no release date was provided. More →
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.

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 →
