All of Humanity, Consider Yourselves Warned!
Crypto is Back and he Brought his Anal Probe with Him!


I can't believe I wasn't aware of Destroy All Humans! coming to PS4. I never got to play this back in the day, and I'm sooooooo excited to finally get a chance to play it.


When Nordic Studios announced a few months ago, that they were able to secure the fallen THQ studio and some of IP's, many fans were wondering what IP might be put back together and appear on our newer generations of gaming consoles, and surprise to everyone today, they announced that 'Destroy All Humans' from the glory days of PlayStation 2 gaming era is returning and fully remastered to enjoy on the PS4 consoles.

The new Sony PlayStation 4 Console is just around the corner launching next week on the 10th for $399, but what about the 'game library', how much of the existing PS4 games will we be able to enjoy on our 4K TV Sets with complete upgrades and patches for them.

Trash talk your friends through your work computer's browser!

Sony has been slow to add new functionality to its PlayStation Network and integrate it across platforms.


Sony is busy revamping their PSN setup to make it the same across all platforms and devices, one central spot for everything PlayStation and Sony, and we reported on earlier regarding their new 'ad spot' that hypes up the changes coming soon, but some have already started like when you browsing 'PlayStation.com' from now on with your PC or Mobile device, you will have the PSN Toolbar, right there for easy access, just as if you were on your SmartTV or PS4 device, allowing you to stay in touch with your friends which online, and see what movies, tv shows, games they are playing, incase you might want to...

Mobile is taking over the old-style of 'gaming', but the flood of millions of PlayStation 4 gamers is taking over the PC World!

About 78 percent of U.S. gamers play on their smartphones, according to a survey by PayPal and SuperData Research. And about 49 percent of U.S. males play on the PlayStation 4, compared to about 48 percent who play on PC.


Yet another study into the changing landscape of 'gaming', but this one is claiming that 'mobile gaming' is taking over older ways of playing on PC's and Consoles, but on the other hand it seems the surge of millions of gamers buying PS4's is knocking the PC world down in numbers, which is weird seeing how little the PS4 offers in in graphics compared to the PC, but maybe 4K PRO will help. :)

Sony Is Positioning Store as the Destination for Music, Movie and Games

Sony PlayStation is promoting its PlayStation Store as the place to find not just PS4 games, but music, movies and the rest in a new campaign featuring a mysterious storekeeper and his wares.


Sony yet again is working on revamp'ing their PlayStation Store, to be your main central portal for everything PlayStation and Sony that they have to offer, and to push the 'digital' side of buying games, movies, tv, etc. and as such they have developed a new ad which they will be airing many many thousands of times over the busy holiday season, with various lengths, but we have the full One Minute version attached below for your viewing pleasure with all its 'hidden Easter eggs' of things to come to PS4, see how many you can spot.

playstation-vr-sales-at-an-all-time-high-but-why.jpg
"PlayStation VR is off to a great start, already having exceeded our expectations," senior VP Bob Puzon stated in a PR.

It has been announced today that Sony's VR headset has already been exceeding expectations, which is currently set to receive more stock of the PlayStation VR for the holiday season, meaning the sales for the VR headsets is at an all-time high.


So even with the 'motion sickness', 'lack of visual quality' and 'lack of quality games', it seems the newly released Sony PlayStation VR add-on for their PlayStation 4 console is outselling demand, with them ramping up production just to get a bit more in the stores for this upcoming busy holiday season, but alot of analysts are wondering WHY is it selling, and that question still is not really answered.

PS4_HEADSET.jpg
Revealed back in September, the headset will cost 18,000 yen, $159 USD, €179 and £129, but sadly its been delayed!

PS4’s Platinum Headset, originally scheduled for holiday, is now slated to launch worldwide in January. Thanks for your patience!


If your holiday guests were hoping for a quiet living room, as you enjoy'ed your PS4 gaming with your Platinum Headset on, they will be sadly upset, as guess what its not coming out in time for any holiday experience, instead you have to wait until after the New Year.

SKYRIM_REPORT.jpg
"Thus far, Skyrim Special Edition looks pretty solid."

Digital Foundry vs Skyrim Special Edition, as they do in-depth console frame-rates analyzed, plus that a full look at all the new remaster'ed key visual upgrades. Check out the details and videos below, to see how it works on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.


So finally Skyrim Remaster Edition is out for our beloved next-generation gaming consoles, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and we had many bad news regarding the tiny modding that is allowed on PS4 vs. XB1, but what about the 'game' itself, how does it compare, which console is the king of remasters when it comes to Skyrim, and as you can see from full report below, basically its the same on both running at 1080p/30fps, well at least we not getting the low 24fps cinematic experience that previous 'remaster' games offer us.

Better hope, they come with FREE 'puke buckets' as option add-on, as almost everyone got sick so far while VR racing!

PS Racing Co has recently announced a huge spike in PlayStation 4 (PS4) steering wheel sales after Sony’s PlayStation division released the PlayStation Virtual Reality (PSVR) Headset.


Driving game peripherals by brands such as Thrustmaster, Logitech, Fanatec and Hori are seeing upticks in sales as racing game enthusiasts are seeking more immersive experiences that work with virtual reality headsets, and the popular PlayStation VR that got released couple of weeks ago, has been one that really triggered more sales of 'racing wheels' compared to previous VR headsets.

And The Game's Director Is A Fan Of The Nintendo Switch

While Kingsglaive was received rather negatively by critics, some of the team behind it has worked on a new trailer for the upcoming Final Fantasy XV and the results are epic.


We still sadly have another whole month of waiting before we can enjoy the next FF game on our PS4 and XB1 consoles, but lucky we have more teaser trailers to droll over, and see below for even more amazing news, that we just might see an FF on the Switch soon! :)

Macho Dragon's creator on the PS4: "I'd barely calling it modding."

With the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition comes mods support on consoles, and many players have wondered if we'll ever see the Macho Man dragon mod make its way to Xbox One.


More bad news for PS4 Skyrim mods, but good news for those looking forward to enjoy'ing Macho Man Dragon Mods on their Xbox.

Leaving almost 1.4 Million Copies that have been Shipped UNSOLD sitting in warehouses around the world!

Capcom’s financial report has revealed that less than 100,000 copies of Street Fighter V have been shipped since May.


The Street Fighter brand is in deep trouble, it seems it is no longer popular, in fact after months of hype and promotion it has become one of the WORSE selling games in the PlayStation 4 short history, with Capcom shifting only 100,000 out of over 1.4 Million copies!

Unplug your DualShock 4 Controller, Play Wirelessly, Adjust your Living Room Setup, Enjoy VR Again!

While the gamers are impressed with the lineup of games at PSVR launch, but the headset did could with some issues, and the most prominent being is the PlayStation VR Image Drift that has the entire picture drifting to one side as you're playing a game.


Lucky for us PSVR Gamers, Sony has recently published an 'solution' on their PlayStation Blog, with some helpful hints on how to reduce 'VR Image Drift' with the main cause seeming to be the DS4 USB Charger cable getting in the way of the 'camera' vision!

Free-to-play MMO reaches new heights on consoles

Star Trek Online's console version launched in September and it's been a big hit, apparently. Developer Cryptic Studios has announced that the game has reached 1.1 million players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Normally, Free-To-Play Massive-Multiplayer-Online games don't do very well on 'consoles', they are popular among PC Gamers, but when ported over to 'consoles' they just don't get the online figures of people playing, but that does not seem to be case for 'Star Trek Online', it has become one of very first Free-to-play MMO games to reach over 1 million players online enjoy'ing the game everyday.

PS4 PRO: "The World's Most Powerful Console" <- It is for now, since Xbox Scorpio does not launch until Holiday 2017.

The PlayStation 4 Pro will be the most powerful system Sony has ever released, with support for 4K resolution and higher frame rates bringing the console into the future, but Sony’s latest advertisement appears to be more interested in the past.


Sony is ramping up the 'console wars' this Holiday, finally fighting back '80s style with a new 'attack ad' regarding their upcoming PlayStation 4 console, which is on November 11th for only $399 USA, and calling it 'The World's Most Powerful Console', which they are basically right since Xbox's more powerful Scorpio system is not out until 'next holiday season', so time to ramp up more millions of new consumers, but will using their 'weird '80s ads' work for them today, to reel in all the customers looking to upgrade consoles....
