Layoffs Hit PlayStation Europe

SIEE had no prior knowledge of PS5 reveal.

A new report from VGC says that Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe (SIEE) is undergoing a "restructuring" of several areas at the company, including marketing and PR. VGC says that they were informed of this unfortunate news from "people with knowledge of the situation."

As if that wasn't bad enough, VGC's report says that SIEE employees were informed about when American PlayStation directors visited SIEE in their London location. Those employees who were impacted by these layoffs...
 

Blizzard Employees Walkout in Protest of Unjust Ban on Pro-Hong Kong Hearthstone Player

A small group of Blizzard employees are protesting against the actions of their employer.

A small group of Activision-Blizzard employees staged a walkout on Tuesday afternoon of this week to protest against their employer. Earlier this week, Blizzard had banned a professional Hearthstone player, Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai, after he voiced his support for the pro-democracy Hong Kong protesters. Blitzchung voiced his support during a post-game interview during an official livestream.

Not only did Blizzard quickly cut away from the interview...
 

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...

Sony Now Fully Supports Cross-play for PlayStation 4

The company quietly moved PS4 cross-play out of beta.

You are probably about to see more and more multiplayer focused multi-platform games add support for cross-play soon. Just today, we saw that PUBG added in cross-platform play between Xbox and PlayStation users. Even the recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare test included some cross-play support. With these new changes, Modern Warfare may be the first game to actually ship with cross-play functionality right out of the box.

This move by Sony now means that the decision to support cross-platform...

    There Were a Lot of Kingdom Hearts 3 Videos at E3

    I think Square Enix really wants to hammer the idea home to you that yes, Kingdom Hearts 3 does exist and yes, Kingdom Hearts 3 will be released on January 29, 2019. We had new trailers from the Xbox E3 event, from Sony's E3 event, and you better believe that there was one at Square Enix's own E3 event.

    Let's start with the Xbox one that showcases some realistic Pirates of the Caribbean people with... Goofy.
    This action-packed trailer reveals that Sora, Donald, and Goofy will revisit Pirates of the Caribbean world with KINGDOM HEARTS III!

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Revealed by FromSoftware

    The mysterious new IP teased by FromSoftware last year, Shadows Die Twice, now has a full name and a full trailer reveal courtesy of Microsoft's E3 2018 conference earlier this week. The game is called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and we'll say this right now: It's not Dark Souls and it's not Bloodborne. It's still an action-RPG though.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is slated to be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Since Microsoft provided the world premiere look at the game, we should see what they have to say about it.

  • The Division 2 Releases March 15, 2019 - New E3 Trailer and Gameplay Footage

    The Division 2 Releases March 15, 2019 - New E3 Trailer and Gameplay Footage

    We got some fresh news, footage, and gameplay details for Tom Clancy's The Division 2 this week thanks to E3 2018. Gone are the snow covered streets of New York from the first game. The crew is taking the fight to Washington, D.C. in what looks to be the season of Summer following the outbreak.

    The Division 2 runs on an updated version of the Snowdrop Engine, which I find a bit amusing since there isn't any snow in the game now. It will be released on March 15, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can register for the beta right now....

    Ghost of Tsushima E3 Gameplay Reveal

    One of Sony's big reveals this week was a rather lengthy world premiere look at the gameplay and story segment for Ghost of Tsushima. Ghost of Tsushima is an upcoming open-world action game from Sucker Punch, the studio that brought you the Infamous franchise.
