PlayStation 5 Confirmed for Holiday 2020 Release

Sony dishes more details about their next-gen console and controller.

The announcement of the next-gen consoles has been really, really weird. Sony first announced the PlayStation 5 via a Wired interview with Mark Cerny. Since then, there really hasn't been much revealed about the new console. In fact, it wasn't even known until today that the next console was actually going to be called the "PlayStation 5."

Today, a new PlayStation Blog entry was released alongside yet another exclusive Wired article that provides some additional details...

  • Sega Reveals 'Our Genesis Story' Ahead of Mini Launch

    Sega Reveals 'Our Genesis Story' Ahead of Mini Launch

    They asked and you answered.

    On the last day of July, Sega put out the call to all Sega fans to share their own stories involving the Genesis. They asked and you answered. Today, Sega revealed the "Our Genesis Story" ahead of the release of the Genesis Mini on September 19, 2019.

    It's been about 30 years since the Genesis was initially released. The console was made and sold from 1988 through to 1997. That's one hell of a long lifetime for a console. To say that it had a few fans would be a bit of an understatement.

  • Jumanji: The Video Game Reveal Trailer

    Jumanji: The Video Game Reveal Trailer

    In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the Rock lays the smack down on your candy ass.

    Hey, so they're making a video game based off of the Jumanji film. No, not the old Jumanji film, the more recent one that came out in 2017. What better time than two years after release to make a video game about a rebooted movie. I suppose the sequel is coming out this year(?), but still. Why not make a video game based off of the actual Jumanji board game?

    You and three teammates are tasked with recovering the JEWELS (their emphasis) in order to save Jumanji....
