But Third-Party publishers may or may not charge or even release patches, it is up to them!

A Sony representative told Polygon that Sony "will not charge consumers for patches," but did not specify whether this policy was only for first-party or also third-party titles that are re-released with HDR support.


When the story first broke, that Sony might CHARGE for 4K/HDR patches, it caused alot more upset PS4 owners, it was bad enough Sony not including 4K Blu-Ray Player, but with the news that 'patches' might cost money it caused even more backlash against Sony since their horrible September 7th unveiling of the PS4 SLIM and PRO models, with lots of lagging gameplay footage it has not been a good week for Sony, but there might be silver lining in it all at least with the 'costing money for patches' story, as Sony has now commented on the original story and says they will NOT charge...

NOT ON OUR CONSOLE SYSTEM PLEASE - NO MODDING IS ALLOWED! - Says Sony to Bethesda!

After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition.


Skyrim and Fallout modders were very upset today, when Bethesa finally broke the sad news that their long talks over many months has failed to bend the Giant Crab into allowing 'user mods' for the two most popular games to modded on the PC.

Refunds being offered

Back in February, we told you the Wii U port of the beautifully epic Hyper Light Drifter was in limbo due to issues with the game engine running natively on the console. There was hope the port would still come out, albeit at a later date than the other versions. Unfortunately, those hopes have been dashed.


Well so much for this Kickstarter game, even tho they did get it out for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, they are not able to finish it for the Wii U or Vita, claiming that is issues with the game engine itself, not allowing them to port the game over, forcing them to canned the whole project instead for the other systems.

The Xbox One S pushed Microsoft to the top of the charts in August

A new console stirred up excitement for Microsoft’s gaming business. The Xbox One outsold the PlayStation 4 in the United States last month, according to data from tracking firm The NPD Group.


Since the launch of the PlayStation 4, it has been basically selling month after month better than the Xbox One, but since the release of the slimmer Xbox, with HDR, and UHD 4K Blu-Ray, it has been outselling the PS4 now for two months in a row in the USA market.
