What is old is new again, so soon after this game comes out, its soundtrack will be released on Vinyl for all to enjoy!

The Last Guardian has been in production for so long that you could be forgiven for thinking it was announced back when vinyl records were still new.


Sorry, your PlayStation 4 console will need an new add-on soon, called an 'Record Player' that allows usage of Vinyl records, yeah those things before Blu-Ray, before DVD, before CD, before Cassette, before 8-Track, you know a real disc which you carefully place the needle onto at the edge, then turned it on and sat back and listened to amazing sound come out, and that is the key point of why the makers behind The Last Guardian have decided to release their SoundTrack for the game on Vinyl so you could enjoy the music correctly, and listen to pure analog sounds recorded from the live music they used in the game, not a bunch...

PS4_BluRay_LawSuit.jpg
We have seen in the past multiple LawSuits over the PS3, but this is one of the very first regarding the PS4 faults!

A class action lawsuit filed by a California man says Sony should own up to a defect in its PlayStation 4 by repairing it at no cost to the consumer.


For the first time basically in the history of the Sony PlayStation 4 console, someone has filled an Class-Action LawSuit against Sony claiming they know for a fact that their disc eject system on their PS4's are faulty, causing headaches for consumers, with stuck discs, and sudden ejecting of discs while playing, so Dominic Moschitti has decided to fight Sony in the court room and force them to fix all their PS4's for FREE, and refunding those that have already had Sony fix their PS4 console for this problem in the past.

PS_HOME.jpg
PlayStation Home from the PS3 Era, makes a return amazing thanks to indie-developer for the PS4 Console!

While PlayStation Home shut its doors in March of last year, that hasn’t stopped a pretty blatant copy of the game to release on PlayStation 4.


Sony might not have been able to make a go of the HOME setup on their earlier PlayStation 3 console, but it does not stop an indie-game-developer from recreating their attempt and turning it into a playable game on the newer PlayStation 4 console for all to enjoy!

Watch_Dogs_2.jpg
Real-Life Hacktivists from San Francisco and DefCon, helped to design the new missions in the Watch_Dogs sequel.

Thomas Geffroyd spent about 20 years preparing to be the hacker advisor inside Ubisoft for the Watch_Dogs 2 game. Well, not really. But that’s how long he has been close to the hacker community, which provides the central characters and backdrop for the sequel about hacking smart cities.


The first Watch_Dogs was set in Chicago and it was very popular game, and also unique in its gameplay on how it used 'hacking' to control the missions and gameplay, and its sequel will of course be similar, just set in San Francisco where alot of the original hacktivists started, and as such Ubisoft recruited some long-time ones to help design their new game and make the missions better.

PS4_PRO_CONTROLLER.jpg
Below is pictured the Razer and Nacon, with outside help stepping in to help Sony's PlayStation 4 controller game.

Sony has revealed two new “pro” controllers on its PlayStation Blog: the Razer Raiju and Nacon Revolution. Both third-party devices will come out before the end of year, although we do not know yet how much they will cost or actual launch time.


One thing had Xbox had over PlayStation was its support for so-called 'professional' gamers with their special 'Elite' controllers that cost $150, but now Sony is stepping into the 'pro' game which makes sense as their 'pro' console is launching early next month, so they announced they have chosen two special third-party companies to released custom/elite/pro controllers for their PS4 brand.

PlayStation Vidgame Movie On Fast Track

Sony Pictures has set Shawn Levy to direct Uncharted, the long-awaited live-action feature film based on the PlayStation video game series featuring the treasure hunter Nathan Drake. Joe Carnahan, who wrote the most recent script draft, had an eye to direct, but he has moved over to focus on helming Sony’s Bad Boys For Life, the action comedy that reunites Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Uncharted is an Arad/Atlas Entertainment Production, with Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner and Ari Arad producing.


We have not heard about the 'Uncharted' movie project for a while, but suddenly it seems Sony has decided to put the movie on the 'fast track' and have settle down on the team that going to be producing and directing the upcoming movie, but no more info has been released yet on when it is due to get the theaters or whom is going to play...

VR_SICK.jpg
"Some people may experience motion sickness, nausea, disorientation, blurred vision or other discomfort while viewing virtual reality content."

So reads the cautionary message that pops up every time you jump into a PlayStation VR game, and it's not just an idle warning: PS VR can potentially throw your body's equilibrium into alarming disarray. Problem is, everybody's tolerance level is different, and it's hard to know what'll make you feel queasy until you're actually struck by those uncomfortable sensations of stomach lurching, light-headedness, or cold sweats.


You still with us after reading all the above, or are you already puking your brains out in the nearby toilet. Well that seems to be the majority of people trying out some of the new PlayStation VR Games, with DriveClub being one of the worse one for people to try to enjoy without getting horribly sick at the wheel, crashing their...

A slightly more Open Modding World on Xbox, due in part the larger 5GB space and allowing of 'external assets'.

Despite not being released until this Friday, October 28, Bethesda is already accepting console mod submissions for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition. But it's accepting far more on Xbox One than PS4.


The allowing of 'external assets' seems to be the key for more mods from the community getting approved before the big release of newly updated Skyrim: Special Edition for the Xbox One than the PlayStation 4 setup which is limited to only 1GB and no external files.

Is the VIta a dead platform? -- Not in Japan, and Not for RPG, and Not for Sony when it comes to Special Models!

If you love RPGs, then you owe it to yourself to pick up a Vita. In Japan, the handheld continues to thrive, with proof of that coming in the form of seven new PS Vita models being launched for just one game.


That special RPG game which is causing all this new push for the Sony PlayStation Vita handheld is from the famous developers Square Enix and their new game title is called SaGa: Scarlet Grace, and it’s set for release on December 15th, and Sony is going to honor their release by bringing out SEVEN (yes, 7) different Vita models, so you can enjoy playing this amazing RPG in the 'style' that you want to.

Sony wants as many people as possible to try out their PSVR, but GAME thinks they can make money from it!

Some GAME stores in the UK are charging people to try the new PlayStation VR headset. Not to buy it. Just to try it.


It is not easy to find a store with PS VR Demo Kiosk as its not like your normal Kiosk it needs trained staff, it has to be cleaned after each usage to prevent 'pink eye' and there is tons that want to try it out since it is so new and different, so because of all that trouble and the lineups for VR demos, GAME has decided why not cash in on the craze of PS VR, because even it does not sell, at least they got something out of each customer that is lined up to try it out!

Skyrim_Mods.jpg
After much discussion an agreement for running 'mods' on the PS4

There was a bit of a tiff between Bethesda and Sony over Skyrim: Special Edition when it came to mods. First Bethesda announced that Sony and them hadn’t been able to come to an agreement, so the feature would be absent in the PlayStation 4 version. Then it seems an agreement was made, with Sony agreeing to let mod support come to the console version of the remaster, but that it wouldn’t be able to important external assets


Well some happy and sad news today, Skyrim for PlayStation is getting 'mods' but they will be limited to space and not allow outside assets, whereas the Xbox mods for Skyrim will have alot more room and features for the very popular Skyrim modding community.

PlayStation 2 Console now can run the latest Linux Kernel's thanks to the hard efforts of Maximus32 on PSX-SCENE

Back in Year 2002, Sony officially released the Linux Kit for their PlayStation 2 Console, but sadly left it at v1.0, never moving it forward with updates, but thanks to the never-stopping PS2 scene community, one of their members have been able to update it to v3.8 the latest Linux Kernel, for all to enjoy turning their PlayStation 2 Console in to full featured Linux Desktop Computer Setup.


Just when you thought the PS2 scene community was dead and buried into the dust, never to be heard of again, they pop back up with roar of lion with super-duper release to shock the world, that even now as we game on our PS4's, the PS2 is still alive and well.

Pigeons.jpg
World War One, was one of the bloodiest wars ever, but Pigeons played a major role in the fight for both sides!

Back in the days of WW1, it was not easy to get messages back to your home war office from the front lines, but lucky for us there was trained flying Pigeons that would bravely fly across the enemy battlefield, taking back your coded messages.


As the world sits on edge waiting to see if WW3 starts in two weeks as Putin advances the whole fleet down thru the english channel towards Syria, us video gamers are safely sitting back in armchairs playing the newly released Battlefield 1 game from DICE, after tearing our hair out from alll the massive DDoS attacks yesterday which stopped tons from joining PSN to play the game, now as we start to finally enjoy it, the biggest question on gamer's minds were the 'Pigeons' in the game treated with respect by the developers?

Virtual reality device outperforms PS4 after just four days on sale

Weekly sales figures show that PlayStation VR shifted more than 50,000 over the course of its debut week in its home market of Japan.


The first sales figures are in from the launch of PlayStation VR, but sadly its only for the Japanese region and the first week, but its looking good so far as they sold over 50,000 units in the first 3 days, so its good sign that PSVR did very well in Europe and America.

Patcher_PS4_Pro.jpg
According To Analyst Michael Pachter

Microsoft have been doing pretty damn well for themselves this last few months. They’ve beaten the PlayStation 4 for three months in a row now. It’s a pretty nice streak in comparison to the PS4 console dominance we’ve seen for most of this generation. Not only sales but Microsoft is generating positive reviews in other areas as well. We’re of course talking about Xbox Play Anywhere. Dozens of backward compatibility games make the appeal of the console even more. But now it appears the winning streak might end soon.


We just posted earlier about the inside on what makes the PS4 PRO special to customers and now it is great help to developers, and now we have the world-famous analyst cheering Sony on, saying don't worry about the last 3 months they got beated by Microsoft, but when this busy Holiday season starts, the PlayStation brand will continue...
