  1. Late last week, Sony kicked off its ‘Games Under $20’ sale offering a large number of PlayStation 4 games for less than twenty bucks. The sale will be live for two weeks, meaning you have until early February to get your favorite title before its price goes back to normal. Though there are some unknown games in the sale, Sony has also included many popular titles, including Batman: Arkham Knight, Battlefield V, several Call of Duty games, and more. Quite a few games under this new sale are priced at less than ten bucks, such as Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Batman: The Enemy Within Season Pass, the “Awakening” and “Salvation” Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLCs, Mad Max, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Rayman Legends, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and more. Other notable titles that are priced above the $10 threshold but below $20 include notable offerings like South Park: The Stick of Truth, Injustice 2: Legendary Edition, Grand Theft Auto V, Dishonored 2, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, The Evil Within 2, XCOM 2 Deluxe, and Warhammer 40000: Inquisitor – Martyr. Though the deals may not be quite at the same level as Sony’s big holiday sale, they’re an excellent way to save quite a bit on the games you already planned to purchase. Some of these titles still retail for high prices, such as Accel World vs. Sword Art Online, which is ordinarily priced at $59.99 USD but is currently priced at $14.99 USD. Another title with the same original and reduced pricing is Black Clover: Quartet Knights. These are all digital game downloads, of course, meaning you’ll need to directly download them from the PlayStation Store rather than by using a disc. The games can be directly purchased within the PS Store using the PlayStation 4 console, but customers can also sign into their account on desktop and purchase the games that way. The full sales list is available here. source
  2. Sony secures short names for potential future PlayStations. Sony Interactive Entertainment has filed trademarks for “PS6,” PS7,” “PS8,” “PS9,” and “PS10” in Japan, likely as security for future PlayStation platforms. This sort of trademark security is a regular occurrence for Sony. Here is a history of “PS” trademarks in Japan: “PS” (trademarked in 2000, released in 1994) “PS2” (trademarked in 1999, released in 2000) “PS3” (trademarked in 2005, released in 2006) “PS4” (trademarked in 2006, released in 2013) “PS5” (trademarked in 2006, released in 2020) In related news, Bandai Namco trademarked “Supo-kyun!” in both logo and text forms, as well as “Men’s☆Party.” Sega Games trademarked “Meikodayo” and “Kaitodayo,” which are the full-body Nendoroid versions of Vocaloid characters Meiko and Kaito Thanks, @piercesword.

  3. Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo online services being investigated by UK government Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are all being investigated by the UK government's Competition and Markets Authority watchdog, to establish, among other things, whether the auto-renewal terms of Xbox Live, PlayStation Plus, and Nintendo Switch Online are "unfair". Based on the CMA's initial announcement, it's a fairly broad investigation, and will seek to answer a number of questions. The watchdog says it's written to Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony to "help better understand their practices" when it comes to their online gaming services. Specifically, the CMA says it's looking to ascertain whether the companies' contracts are unfair ("do the companies' terms give them wide discretion to change the quality of the deal, for example, by reducing the number of games included or increasing the price?"), how easy it is to cancel or secure a refund ("are there any factors that make it difficult for people to cancel their contract or get their money back?"), and whether the auto-renewal process is fair. On this latter point, the CMA says it's curious to know whether customers are "clearly told that their membership will be rolled over, [if they're] regularly reminded that they are on a roll-over contract before further payments are taken, and [if] auto-renewal [is] set as the default option". The watchdog stresses that no verdict has yet been reached on whether Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft have "broken consumer protection law", but it could take "enforcement action" if it decides the companies' practices are misleading or unfair. According to the CMA, the investigation is part of a "Citizens Advice 'super-complaint'", which previously looked at issues around loyalty penalty. The watchdog says that it's seeking the views of players with current or expired memberships to Switch Online, PlayStation Plus, and Xbox Live Gold, and there's an email address for those with something to say.

  4. PlayStation 2 repair services close in Japan The PlayStation 2 is the best-selling console of all time Sony has ended its repair service for the PlayStation 2, more than 18 years after it first went on sale. The console was first released in Japan in March 2000 and remains the best-selling games console ever produced. Manufacturing of the device ended in 2012, six years after the follow-up PS3 console had been released. Sony said it was no longer able to offer repairs because it was running out of replacement parts for the ageing console. In a statement, the company thanked customers for their "continued patronage". Gamers seeking repairs will now have to try their luck with unofficial services. More than 150 million PlayStation 2 consoles have been sold. The latest model, the PS4, has sold about 80 million units. Rival console-maker Microsoft no longer reports sales figures for its Xbox One console. But the consultancy IHS Markit estimates more than 40 million have been sold. Source
  5. PlayStation fans hoping for the next generation of console will have to wait quite a bit longer for a new installment in the console series. President of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Tsuyoshi Kodera has stated that the next PlayStation is three years off, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Playstation 4 was released in 2013, meaning there will be an eight-year-long span between the two consoles. The reason behind this extended development period is, primarily, predicated on the company's desire to shift its focus from hardware to online services. "We're no longer in a time when you can think just about the console or just about the network like they're two different things," Kodera said during a press event. Broadening the functionality of the Playstation does seem to be a likely possibility. Kodera also mentioned that the new generation of Playstation won't be limited to a single, stationary, device. Kodera also made mention of Sony's continued expansion of Playstation Plus, Sony's online distribution platform for the Playstation 4. Plus offers a variety of products and subscriptions to its users, which reached roughly 34 million as of March. The added focus on user mobility and online subscription services will likely mean the next Playstation console will be widely different from its previous generations. With the rise of digital distribution platforms like Steam, mobile gaming, and the portability of the Nintendo Switch the habits of gamers today vary widely from the way console developers traditionally viewed the market. Kodera seems confident in Playstation's future, and claimed the delay of its next console will let the company "prepare [for] the next step, to crouch down so that we can jump higher in the future."

  6. If you’re having problems accessing the PlayStation Network, then here’s some good news: it’s not just you. The bad news, of course, is that Sony is experiencing some problems with PSN connectivity at the moment, and these issues seem to be affecting aspects that are most important to gamers. To make matters worse, we’re not sure how long it’s going to take before these issues are resolved. A quick glance over at Sony’s PSN service status page shows us that Gaming and Social services are currently experiencing issues. Other PSN services, such as the PlayStation Store, account management, and PlayStation Now, are all up and running, which is encouraging. Still, you’ll need those Gaming and Social services to be able to play games online, so if you’re logging on to do some gaming, don’t be surprised if some (or all) won’t let you connect. These problems are present on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but like all problems of this nature, there’s no certainty that you’ll actually encounter them if you try to take a game online. For now, the status page doesn’t actually tell us much of anything, only that PlayStation engineers are on the case and working to fix the problem. “You may have some difficulty launching games, applications, or online features,” the message reads. “Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience.” Things unfortunately don’t get any clearer once we jump over to the Ask PlayStation Twitter account, which says much the same thing about the problems. From here we simply have to play the waiting game, as it could be any amount of time before service is restored. That will be little comfort to those who are waiting to sign into the PlayStation Network, but there’s not much else to be done at the moment. In any case, we’ll keep an ear to the ground to listen for any updates on these issues. Once Sony has fixed the problems, we’ll update this post, so stay tuned for that. source
  7. The PlayStation Vita TV has been on sale in Japan and Asia since last year, but Sony will be bringing it to North America and Europe under the name PlayStation TV. The gadget has the PS Vita hardware inside and can play Vita, PlayStation Portable and PS One games using the bundled DualShock 3 controller. It can also stream a game running on a PlayStation 4 in a different room thanks to its Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity. The PlayStation TV will also support PlayStation Now as soon as the service is available in Europe. Now is a streaming service that lets you play PlayStation 3 games by streaming them from Sony services. The mini console will cost $99 in the US and Canada and €99 in Europe. It comes with one DualShock 3 controller (but supports DS4 if you have them too), 8GB a memory card and an HDMI cable. Source
  8. It’s been a few months since Sony’s game streaming service, PlayStation Now, was announced at CES 2014 and suddenly sparked very strong opinions — on all sides of the spectrum — regarding game streaming. The service, which streams PS3 and PS2 back catalog games from the cloud to compatible devices, has been in closed beta since the end of January, and is projected to release sometime this summer. It seems that release is still on track, as Sony has revealed the TVs that will be compatible with PlayStation Now, and a list of launch games has been leaked. As the games industry has been evolving over the years, a major focal point has been delivery. Thanks to Valve’s Steam — as well as smaller, easily downloadable games on the PSN and Xbox Live — many gamers have grown to accept and prefer a digital copy of a game rather than a physical box they can display on a shelf. However, during that same industry evolution, games grew exponentially in size. PC games like Starcraft II and BioShock Infinite require 20GB of install space each, while dual-layer Blu-ray discs can hold up to 50GB of data. The PS4′s Killzone Shadow Fall clocks in at an enormous 38.5GB of data. When game data is that hefty, downloading and installing it — and having it clog up precious storage space — becomes a nuisance. Game streaming is the solution, and Sony’s PlayStation Now is leading the charge. It’s even getting rid of the need for a game console, only requiring a compatible display. Now, Sony has revealed the first TVs compatible with its upcoming game streaming service. Sony announced nine new TVs (shoved into three different product lines) that are PS Now-compatible, and — surprise — they’re all 4K televisions. The prices on the televisions range from $2,100 to a whopping $25,000, with display size dictating that price; the smallest of the sets is 49 inches, while the largest measures in at a whopping 85 inches. Each 4K set is compatible with PlayStation Now, but you’ll need a DualShock 3 controller in order to take advantage of the service. Considering you don’t need to buy a PS3, that’s not a bad deal if you’re already in the market for a brand new 4K TV. (Read: No, TV makers, 4K and UHD are not the same thing.) Along with the 4K TV reveal, a list of supposed PS Now launch games has been floating around the web. We’ve seen The Last of Us running on PS Now (seen above), but according to DualShockers, a participant in the PS Now closed beta compiled a list of games currently on the service and sent it in. The list hits every part of the console gaming spectrum, from Shadow of the Colossus and Payday: The Heist, to Guacamelee! and Disgaea 4, covering the PS3, PS2, and maybe the PSP as well. The anonymous beta user also reports that all games but one — WipeOut HD – currently take less than 50 seconds to load, and many of the games load well under the 40 second mark. The size of video games grows faster than the speed of the internet (until, at least, Google Fiber becomes widely available), so there’s no telling if PlayStation Now will be able to not only consistently load games at an acceptable pace, but also keep them free of lag. Reports from show floors such as CES have stated that lag was unnoticeable, but a very limited scenario is easy to control. We’ll find out if PlayStation Now can deliver lag-free game streaming this summer, but even if it takes Sony a year after its launch to nail the latency, game streaming continues to look like the future delivery method of video games.

  9. Hi guys! I usually read all of your comments and opinions but this is the first time that I post something! :) I saw in a couple of websites a new giveaway hosted by PHP Nuke and I thought you want to participate, too. The prize is awesome, PlayStation 4 + Metal Gear Solid V, and it looks real. However, they dont ask you for buying something or anything like that, you just have to follow then in the social networks and that´s it!

  10. Backward compatibility is a big deal in the gaming world, and when Sony announced its PS4 console, much of the talk was about the lack of any ability to play those back catalogues of games that everyone had spent the last few years accumulating. Sony has since sought to rectify that by announcing PlayStation Now, the game streaming service that will see PS3 games streamed over the Internet, but there is no local support being added to consoles. While this is all well and good for PS3 titles, what about those classic PS2 and PlayStation games that enthusiasts love so much? If the original Tomb Raider is your bag, then being able to play Lara’s first outing on your PS4 is something you’d enjoy, and it seems Sony is getting ready to accommodate just that. A source inside Sony’s streaming service team has said that while PS3 games will only be streamable via PlayStation Now, older PlayStation and PS2 games will actually be able to run locally using hardware emulation, something Sony hasn’t done since the early PS3 days. Software emulation via PSN has since been the order of the day for Sony’s PlayStation brand, but the idea of hardware support returning to the brand will please hardcore gamers. Part of that hardware emulation is Sony’s aim to try and get enhanced HD visuals into the mix. Many of the past generations’ biggest hits have had HD remixes over the years, and improved HD support across the board for PlayStation and PS2 titles would most definitely be a welcome addition. While hardware support is great news though, we can’t help but be much more interested in PlayStation Now. From a purely technical standpoint, streaming HD games over the Internet without having the video and input lag that plagued startups like Onlive is no mean feat, though with Sony’s clout and tactical business purchases of late, we wouldn’t put it past them. Early indications have been roundly positive, so we may not need hardware support after all! But it would’ve been great that such things were cleared up at the announcement of the PS4 itself. After all, adding bits and pieces after the launch somewhat lays most of the excitement to rest. What are your thoughts? Source
  11. Sony promised at E3 "More than 140 games coming this year on PlayStation 4". Here, We are publishing a list and information of 70 games releasing this year on Playstation 4. http://www.gamerzelite.net/index.php/game-news/item/521-full-list-of-ps4-games-releasing-in-year-2014
  12. Good news for PlayStation 4 early adopters as Sony is releasing a new patch later on today. While this is a minor update it’s supposed to address some of the stability issues that users have been reporting so it’s, no doubt, a very welcome update. Eric Lempel, VP of Sony Network Entertainment, explained on the PlayStation Blog that this update brings stability improvements as well as a few UI refinements which now clearly indicates when a user downloads a game and a game patch at the same time. Depending on your geographic region, your PS4 may download the update automatically even when in standby mode so it’s going to be ready for installation when you boot up your console. If you’re not in North America you might have to manually check for the update. PS4 users will surely welcome this news and here’s hoping Sony keeps this up and addresses all the bugs that have crept up since the launch of the console a few days ago. source
  13. As the Sony PlayStation 4 launches in the USA, gamers across the country will be digging into what the new console has to offer. Amongst the features is Facebook integration that allows you to find friends to play with and against, and share video clips, screenshots and live streams of your gaming exploits to your timeline. Facebook tells us that it worked closely with Sony to develop the integration, and in case you’re not one of the lucky ones to get your hands on the new console, here’s the workflow for sharing your in-game experiences to the social network.

  14. We are now less than 48 hours from the launch of the PlayStation 4, and excitement levels are quickly approaching fever pitch. But while it’s easy to get a little bit carried away amid the hype, we’re still learning of potentially significant tidbits pertaining Sony’s fourth-gen gaming machine. Since the preceding PlayStation 3 featured a Blu-ray player from the get-go, it was a given that the PS4 would also support Blu-ray playback, even before the announcement. But now, it has been revealed that there will be no 3D Blu-ray support, meaning those with 3D panels at home will need to find a separate, compliant player if they want to kick back and enjoy their favorite three-dimensional flicks. This is, to the hardcore gamer, by the by, and with many prospective PS4 owners having preordered on the basis of the console’s game-playing credentials, it really isn’t that significant. However, with the Xbox One offering 3D Blu-ray support and Microsoft really seeming to push the wider entertainment appeal of its third-gen offering, this revelation may prompt some to reconsider the PlayStation 4. What’s even more baffling is that, in actual fact, the PlayStation 3 does support 3D Blu-ray, but as has been spotted in the PS4 User Guide by the folks of The Sixth Axis, its forthcoming successor does not follow suit. Support for traditional Blu-rays, as well as DVDs, is present from the first release date, and support for CD playback will arrive with a later software update. But with consumers moving away from CDs as a form of listening to music and onto digital services, the lack of initial support is unlikely to have any major effect, whereas the lack of 3D Blu-ray playback might. With that said, it’s a fair point to make that 3D Blu-ray hasn’t really taken off in the way that Sony and others might have hoped, and as a major vendor of television sets, it is as well placed as any to gauge whether implementing this feature into the PlayStation 4 is a worthwhile venture.

  15. Sony has put up an official video on its PlayStation channel on YouTube, unboxing the PlayStation 4 and showing the world what they’ll get in the box once it hits the shelves come this Friday. The official PlayStation Twitter account recently posted a direct link to the unboxing video accompanied the #GreatnessAwaits hashtag. Sony has stepped away from what seems to be the widely accepted and standard YouTube product unboxing practice. Rather than drop the PlayStation 4 onto a computer table and rip away at the packaging until the hardware pops into view, the company has instead opted for a no-expense-spared production that looks like it could have been pulled straight out of Hollywood’s latest art heist thriller. A dimly lit room with a gorgeous purple glow emanating from the ceiling. Rows of floor-to-ceiling servers offering additional light into the room. Adrenaline rising music playing over the top to ramp up anticipation. A rectangle shaped product box taking precedent in the room lit by what appears to be a vertical glow from the heavens. This release from Sony has all of the aforementioned video goodies as well as an unboxing engineer wearing a pair of pretty awesome gloves to just add a little bit of extra polish and drama to the unboxing. when we eventually dive into what’s included in the packaging we find that the PlayStation 4 ships with a limited time Network Voucher, a quick startup guide manual, a single DualShock 4 controller as well as a single HDMI cable and that all-so-important AC power cord. As previously reported, Sony is also providing users with a mono headset as part of the PlayStation 4 bundle in an attempt to get more gamers using audio communication during online multiplayer games. A single USB cable is also provided to charge the new DualShock 4 wireless controller. Finally, after all of the peripherals have been unboxed, the 500GB PS4 system is whipped out of the packaging and held up to the heavenly glow. It’s clear from this video that we are going to actually have to wait until the console is out in the wild to get an in-depth look, as the official video only shows a very brief glimpse of the hardware itself. However, we shouldn’t have to wait much longer for that to happen. Source: RedmondPie
