PlayStation 4 Sales Reach Impressive New Milestone

Apr 28, 2016 - 1:50 PM - by garyopa
PSN Store alone makes more Money then all of Nintendo combined!

Sony’s yearly financial report reveals the latest sales numbers for the PlayStation 4, as well as the revenue the company has earned from the PlayStation Network.

Over 20 years ago, the PlayStation One with its Crash Bandicoot was King of the Video Gaming Consoles, and Sony was proud and followed it up with amazing PlayStation Two and its DVD Player, but sadly there was dark era in Sony's gaming history with its third adventure into the field, and everyone back then was predicting it was GAME OVER for the PlayStation era, but suddenly out of nowhere, with not many exclusive games, and tiny launch list, and the big bad Microsoft to fight at the same time for holiday sales with their new Xbox One and its all powerful almighty Cloud and Xbox Live network, came the around the corner the PlayStation 4 like a bullet train in Japan with nothing stopping it on its tracks, and now with Sony's report we see how well indeed the PS4 has been doing in overall sales.

Near the end of the previous gaming generation, many analysts predicted that the eighth gen would be the end of dedicated video gaming consoles. However, Sony has revealed very impressive sales numbers for the PlayStation 4, with the console surpassing 40 million units sold worldwide - putting to rest the notion that console gaming is dead.

Sony was able to bring the PlayStation 4 above the 40 million units sold threshold by selling 17.7 million consoles over the last fiscal year. To put into perspective how impressive those numbers are, the Wii U has sold 12 million over its lifetime, and analyst reports put the Xbox One at about 18 million units sold. Basically, the PlayStation 4 sold more in one year than the Wii U has sold in its lifetime, and sold enough in one year to match the Xbox One's lifetime sales.

That's not to say that the Xbox One is doing poor in sales - it's just that the PS4 is doing exceptionally well. In fact, the console's sales are accelerating, with its momentum expected to continue in the coming years. This should come as no surprise, as the PS4's library is starting to include rather impressive exclusive titles, such as the recently released Ratchet & Clank reboot, and the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

Besides strong hardware sales, Sony also reported impressive numbers for its PlayStation Network revenue. In the past fiscal year, PlayStation Network revenue increased to ¥529,000,000, which was more revenue than Nintendo pulled in for its entire business in the same time period. It's safe to say that Sony is crushing the competition in the eighth generation so far, and the PS4's market dominance could at least partially be to blame for the possibility that the Wii U could be discontinued in 2018.

Indeed, Sony is on a roll, and there are no signs that its momentum will slow down anytime soon. The rumored PlayStation 4.5 could boost hardware sales even further, and if the virtual reality movement catches on, the PlayStation VR headset could become the dominant hardware for VR thanks to the PS4's popularity. If these hardware gambles by Sony pay off, the company could further cement the PS4's legacy as the best-selling eighth generation gaming system.

And that's not to mention the various exclusive games that the PS4 has on the horizon. While past years have been rough for the PS4 in terms of exclusives, 2016 is looking bright for the console. We've already mentioned games like Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted 4, but Sony has other titles in the pipeline as well, including: Horizon: Zero Dawn, Dreams from the LittleBigPlanet studio, and much more. Barring some unforeseen killer app from the competition, it's safe to say the PS4 has already won the eighth generation hardware sales race.
But will it all keep working out for Sony, now analysts are predicting with the upcoming PS4K NEO launch this Nov. 2016 and the costly PlayStation VR and the still short list of new exclusive games, that the bubble will burst and tons of unhappy and upset customers will dump their PS4 instead of buying a PS4K NEO, and will infact grab an Xbox One console this 'Xmas for $199, and that Microsoft will not have to do anything to gain new customers, not even release any new upgraded hardware, just sit back and watch Sony burn out and crash and just walk on slowly by them on the next-gen battlefield that is still upon us with NX firing on us in March 2017.

Party Hard Will Have You...

Apr 26, 2016 - 4:29 PM - by garyopa
Disposing of Party-Goers on Consoles (PS4 & XB1) Today...

It's time to play the best Party Stopping Simulator around. After very party-worthy success on Steam/PC, Party Hard is just about to hit consoles... , Today!

Well are you ready, did you stay up all night last night partying hard, and waiting for the download to complete on your console, well if you did, then you are true gamer, if not you are well sorry ass excuse for a loser, but if so still time is not too late to get into the flow, and grab the best party game ever release so far for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, as today its 'PARTY HARD' time!

It's time to play the best Party Stopping Simulator around. After very party-worthy success on Steam/PC, Party Hard is just about to hit consoles... tomorrow!

So you might as well spend all night partying and playing! But don't be too loud, or someone might come over to... dispose of you! Note that I don't have too many codes, so there are bound to be some folks who are disappointed.


tinyBuild's Alex Nichiporchik tells you a bit more about the game:

What is Party Hard?

Putting it simply, it's a stealth strategy game where you have to kill everyone at a series of parties. It starts off with our protagonist being sick of next-door neighbors having loud parties at 3am, and goes through a series of party massacres around the US.

I really love movies like Zodiac, and we decided to tell the story from a detective's perspective.

You follow the crimes through his eyes, and figure out what is actually going on. Take the story with a grain of salt, because we do have dancing killer bears in sunglasses. And giant alien butts that shoot rainbows.

Core Mechanics!

I'll talk a little bit about the core mechanics in Party Hard. Obviously you can use your knife to backstab everyone, but there's much more to it.

  • Traps

Each level has different traps that can be activated. From simple things like exploding fire extinguishers to burning down the house
  • Picking up bodies & stashing them

An unexpectedly popular mechanic is picking up dead bodies and hiding them. Some players love to keep it clean!
  • Visibility zones

NPCs see through windows and are aware of their surroundings. It's important to keep your stabbing duties out of people's sight.
  • Suspicion meter

Odds are if I catch you surrounded by 3 bodies, my suspicion of you will grow. Don't get caught next to bodies. Also if you've been around too many odd events, people will get in on you and try to call the cops. You have no sprint button, that's on purpose - so you have to think strategically.
  • Shortcuts

Shortcuts are a way to escape from the cops (they get tired, don't ask) but can't be abused much. It's a way to get around the map quicker, and you can't use them more than a few times.
  • Special Agents, Feds, SWAT Teams

Aside from cops, you will see different teams arrive on the scene. They can be as simple as a SWAT team killing everyone in sight, or a team of special agents that go out of their way to find you on the map.
  • Ambulance

Someone has to pick those bodies up! That's the job of the ambulance.
  • Crowd behavior

You really shouldn't attack a large crowd in the open. They understand their power of numbers, and will kick your ass, call the cops, and get you arrested.
  • Conga lines, yup, really

One of the earliest ideas we had was a way to form a conga line at a party, and stab everyone in it. We even did a Party Hard-music-fueled Conga Line at PAX South 2016, going around Devolver's booth.
  • Random overall events

There are a ton of overarching events that can happen and change the whole level. What if someone turns into a zombie? What if

Sony's PlayStation Neo won't have exclusive games

Apr 21, 2016 - 11:51 PM - by garyopa
Shares PS4 library, but upscales games to 4K images if the game is released after this October 2016.

Sony's new PS4 Neo will share the PS4's games library, so the existing 45 Million Console owners don't have to worry about getting left behind when the new console lands at the end of November 2016.

Well the world is going crazy, for the first time in 'console generation' history, a new model is being released that is like a stepping-stone better model then the previous one, instead of waiting the normal 7 to 10 years for new console, another version of PlayStation 4 is coming in less then 4 years from the first model, with just a bit better graphics and horsepower, which is upsetting the millions and millions of current PS4 console owners that thought their $400+ investment would be safe for a few more years.

Instead of moving on to the PlayStation 5, reports indicate that Sony will change the console cycle with a mid-cycle PS4 upgrade called the PlayStation Neo. The PS4 Neo won't be replacing existing PS4s, and will instead co-exist with the console and share a unified library of games that can be traded back and forth.

The trick is that every PS4 game will have to support the PS4 Neo's new features, including 1080p to 4K upscaling functionality as well as increased frame-rate performance. The way it'll work is that every PlayStation 4 game released after October 2016 will have two versions: a "Base Mode" for play on the regular PS4, and a "Neo Mode".

Neo Mode allows developers to leverage the console's upgraded hardware to push 1080p 60FPS and upscale to 4K. All in-game content will be the same across PS4 Neo and PS4. All existing PS4 games will be compatible and playable on the PS4 Neo. Existing PS4's will only play games in Base Mode.

In order to ensure smooth 4K upscaling, Sony has set a strict minimum native rendering resolution of 1920 x 1080 for all games that support Neo Mode. It's been suggested that existing PS4 games could be patched to support Neo Mode to harness the PlayStation 4K's hardware, possibly raising native resolution and improve frame rates on current games. Sony is keen on creating an environment where current PlayStation 4 owners aren't left behind, and making the shift to PS4 Neo an optional choice.

All existing PS4 peripherals will be compatible with the Neo, including DualShock 4 controllers (which will remain the base controller), PS Camera, and the PlayStation VR. Thanks to the Neo's onboard GPU upgrade--which resembles a derivative of AMD's next-generation 14nm Polaris10 Ellesmere chip--PlayStation VR will be supported by default without the need of the extra processing unit.

Developers can't add-in exclusive features in Neo Mode, nor can they offer incentives to play upgraded PS4K versions of games. Furthermore, games in Neo Mode must match the exact native frame rate found in the original PS4 version, which could be a big headache for developers. As a result of all of the new requirements, devs aren't too happy about the PS4 Neo, and BioWare's co-founder says that the PS4K is a "gigantic pain in the ass".

Despite the enhanced hardware, the PlayStation Neo will act just like a regular PS4. It will connect to the same PlayStation Network, play all existing PS4 games, and be compatible with all PS4 peripherals. Users can transfer their saved data between PS4 and PS4 Neo, as well as their PS Plus games library and PSN account.
So what do you think, are you going to be one of 45 million PS4 users upset when the PS4/NEO launches in the last week of November 2016 for the low price of $399 (I have confirmed this with multiple sources), and the other confirmed news is that the older useless PS4 console will be discounted at first to $249 before NEO lands, and then to $199 once NEO hits the stores, and finally games that go gold in the month of October must be patched to support NEO, but games before that its up to the publisher, and sadly I have confirmed that Naughty Dog will NOT be patching their new Uncharted 4 game as its already gone GOLD before NEO, and the team is fully focused on the new Last of Us 2, which will most likely be NEO compatible.

The Technomancer: Sci-Fi RPG Unleashes its Gameplay Trailer

Apr 21, 2016 - 2:56 PM - by garyopa
Spiders is one of the most underrated studios out there, I'd say

Bound By Flame and Mars: War Logs were both really solid titles, and the team has always punched above its weight: this is a rather small team, developing highly ambitious games.

So one of the best upcoming Sci-Fi RPG's is almost ready for launch, and as such we got for you another teaser trailer, that really dives deep into the storyline and all that wonderful stuff that will make this game so special to play and enjoy on your PS4 and XB1 consoles.

The Technomancer, the sci-fi roleplaying game set on Mars, now has a new Gameplay Trailer that introduces you to the universe and delves into the heart of the deep RPG experience.

You play as an apprentice Technomancer, Zachariah, who represents one of the powerful corporations warring for the most precious resource on the red planet: water. The Technomancers are formidable warriors, harnessing destructive electrical powers that are channeled through their implants. Your adventure will take you on a journey across Mars, where each decision you make bears consequences.

The Technomancer is a roleplaying game at heart and it starts from the character creation screen, where you will customize your appearance and make your first character development decisions. During the 40 hours of quests, you'll earn precious experience points, that will let you further develop your character through 4 skill trees tied to 3 different combat stances and your technomancer powers. These will help you face the many dangers of Mars: other human survivors and mutants, as well as the numerous hybrid creatures bioengineered by the first human settlers.

You will also learn talents that will be useful during the exploration phases. Along your journey you'll recruit many companions each with their own story, behaviour, moral code, special quests and talents, that assist you in combat as well as exploration.

Steel yourself and your companions with better armor pieces and weapons, and further improve your equipment with the crafting system. All along your journey, you'll create a unique hero (or anti-hero) and story that reflects the choices, friends and enemies you made.

Embark on a big journey on Mars with the sci-fi RPG The Technomancer, available June 21 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

About the Game

Spiders studio is back with The Technomancer, a sci-fi RPG for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC set on Mars during the War of Water, where an aspiring Technomancer faces a myriad of questions as his future grows threatened by the secrets of his past.

Technomancers are "mage-warriors", who harness, thanks to an innate talent, destructive electrical-based powers, amplified by their cybernetic implants. Both respected and feared by all, they are fearsome warriors trained from a young age to fight. You are one of them, about to finally pass your initiation rite to become a fully-fledged Technomancer.

An RPG, The Technomancer will offer players action-oriented combat gameplay along four different skill trees, focusing on 3 different fi ghting styles and the destructive electric-focused powers of the Technomancers. But all situations aren't necessarily to be dealt with brute strength, with dynamic conversation dialogue playing a deep role in quests, changing the story depending on the decisions you make. Craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and for the companions you'll recruit along your adventure, nurturing relationships with them.

On the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet, you must undertake a quest that takes you through forgotten paradises, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars' dusty embrace.

Faced with the cruelty of Mars' iron-fi st enforcers and alien wild-life, can you survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer?

Key Features

  • An adventure set on the sands and terraformed tropics of a post-apocalyptic Red Planet
  • 3 combat styles and character customization
  • Unleash powerful Technomancy magic on your foes
  • In-depth crafting that changes the appearance of weapons and armour

King of Fighters 14’s Newest Character Fights Mai Shiranui

Apr 16, 2016 - 1:06 AM - by garyopa
An all new character joins the roster in KOF14, which is being released as an PS4 Exclusive Game!

SNK Playmore, the developers of King of Fighters XIV has revealed an all new character in a newly released trailer for the PlayStation, which is exclusive for the PS4 and will be released this year.

Good news for all those that have been craving for a new beat-them-up old-school fighter game, as King of Fighters is making its big comeback to the console world with their upcoming new release and best of all its going to be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 console, and even more good news has a brand-new character for you to enjoy as you battle your way thru the various world famous stages.

The new character is Banderas Hattori, who appears to have a crush on Mai Shiranui, who will be returning to the series in the latest game. Mai is of course the game's most well-recognized character. The two do battle as he attempts to give her some sweet talk and charm her into training him as a fighter. She's not really interested in doing that.

The previous game in the series came out for the PC, so there's a good chance this one will, too, but SNK Playmore has yet to make any announcements regarding a possible port, so it's a PS4 exclusive-for now.

Like Street Fighter V, KOF14 features 3D models who do battle across a 2D plane. It's the first title in the series to feature 3D graphics, with all previous titles offering sprite-based graphics.

Despite the game's graphical change, it will continue to offer the "3-on-3 Team Battle" game system that made the series a hit over the years.

The new title will offer a returning cast of old characters as well as some new ones like the guy in the video above.
So what do you think about the upcoming KOF14 game, are you glad its coming back to consoles, but are you upset its PS4 only?

PlayStation 4 outsells Xbox One in March

Apr 14, 2016 - 7:52 PM - by garyopa
PS4 has outsold the competition for 13 of the last 15 months.

PlayStation 4 console was yet again the #1 top-selling video gaming console in United States retailers last month, according to data from industry-tracking firm The NPD Group which follows all sales.

Sony yet again is still the King of The Hill in the new generation of video gaming consoles with their PlayStation 4 system, as it seems they have yet again won sales in the North America marketplace for the month of March, with the latest data supplied by The NPD Group.

PlayStation 4 was the top-selling new gaming console at United States retailers last month, according to data from industry-tracking firm The NPD Group that Sony Interactive Entertainment provided to GamesBeat. PS4 has outsold the competition for 13 of the last 15 months. The Xbox One came out on top in April and October in 2015, and it continues to sell well - but Sony has all of the momentum. Nintendo's Wii U, meanwhile, is likely on the way out as the company shifts to mobile gaming and its new codenamed NX dedicated hardware to try to find new revenues in the $99.3 billion gaming business.

The console gaming industry represents about a third of that $99.3 billion total, and Sony is well positioned to take advantage of that in terms of both hardware and software sales.

Here's the full statement from Sony Interactive Entertainment:

"Thank you to our fans and partners for making PlayStation 4 the top-selling console and software sales leader for the month of March, as well as the number-one console for fans of The Division, according to NPD. We are truly humbled by the success and look forward to delivering more amazing gaming experiences throughout 2016, including the launch of PlayStation VR this October."
These console sales come with a cloud of uncertainty. March is when people first started hearing rumors of an alleged "PlayStation 4K" with improved processing and video-output capabilities. Microsoft has also mentioned the possibility for something along those lines. Refreshed consoles that sell for $400 from each company make a lot of sense, but these rumors could also scare consumers away from making any big purchasing decisions now.
Of course now, the problem with E3 just around the corner, and all these rumors of the Nintendo NX and PS4K and possible XB1.5, sales might slow down, but then they always do during the summer months, so it might be time for yet another round of price-cuts!

Shadwen emerges from the shadows in May!

Apr 14, 2016 - 1:04 PM - by garyopa
New trailer; PC and PlayStation 4® the initial platforms

Game developer Frozenbyte is happy to announce a May release date for its upcoming stealth-action game Shadwen. A new trailer showcases the game and its physics-based world and the emotional story.

We been posting news about the new stealth-action game from Frozenbyte and now finally we get word from the Finnish developers that they have picked a launch date in May and the game will be released on both PlayStation 4 consoles and PC's at the same time, and have released alot with this PR, a new teaser trailer for all their loyal fans to enjoy that been waiting for this game for a long time, since it was first announced soon after the initial launch of the PlayStation 4 console.

Shadwen will launch at a spectacularly low launch discount price of $14.55 on PC, following a "demo event" campaign where gamers from all over the world were able to play a sneak-peek beta demo and lower the price by doing so. The starting price was $35 but over 20.000 downloads, 3.5 million points, and over 100.000 killed guards dropped the price to $14.55 (with a launch discount applied).

The initial launch platforms are PC and PlayStation 4®. The final launch price of the game will vary slightly based on platforms and stores and their pricing policies. On PC it will be $14.55 or less in the most prominent stores.

About Shadwen

Shadwen is a stealth-action game where the only rule is to remain unseen. Stay hidden - or the ruthless guards will kill you on sight!

Shadwen, an assassin on a quest to kill the king, has a chance encounter with an orphaned girl, Lily. She follows Shadwen on her dangerous journey, but when the ruthless guards get too close, Shadwen must take action right in front of Lily's eyes.

Will Shadwen risk the girl's budding trust by resorting to violence, or try and find another way while keeping her real purpose concealed?

To kill or not to kill - that is the question.


  • MOVE FREELY - Sneak and explore around the dark and gritty medieval province and use the environment to your advantage - use your rope to grapple onto rooftops, silently drop from ceilings, or veil yourself in the shadows.
  • STAY HIDDEN - Pick your assassinations carefully. Avoid being seen, heard or getting caught indirectly. Suspicious sights and noises will alert the guards - use it to your benefit!
  • TIME IS AN ACCOMPLICE - Time stands still when you are not moving Shadwen, allowing you to stop at any point mid-motion. Rewind time to manipulate your past and present actions!
  • USE PHYSICS - Use physics and a freely attachable rope to drag and topple objects. Make deaths look accidental; let gravity do the grave work.
  • CREATE TRAPS AND HAZARDS - Set up traps and hazards to lure guards towards their untimely demise; discover new ways to eliminate or distract your foes by crafting items into deadly surprises, including poison traps, spike devices, decoy toys and more.
  • TWO CHARACTERS - Embrace the darkness with Shadwen and her abilities to protect Lily and create a safe passage for her.
So what do you think, are you going to be enjoy'ing this new game when it launches in May, or is it not your thing and if so why not?
