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...
 

Blizzard Bends the Knee to China, Bans Hearthstone Pro Blitzchung

Pro player that voiced his support for the Hong Kong protests banned by Blizzard.

Yesterday, we brought you the story about Chung "Blitzchung" Ng Wai, a professional Hearthstone player that called for the liberation of Hong Kong during a post-game interview on the official Taiwanese Hearthstone stream. During the interview, Blitzchung wore a gasmask not completely dissimilar to the ones worn by protesters in Hong Kong. Blitzchung voice his support for those who have been protesting China's growing authoritarian control over Hong Kong.

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...

  • Yakuza Kiwami Launch Edition Vlog and Free Content Release Schedule

    Yakuza Kiwami Launch Edition Vlog and Free Content Release Schedule

    With the release of Yakuza Kiwami coming on August 29, it makes sense that we get the last details on the game prior to launch. The launch vlog for Yakuza Kiwami shows us "exactly how extreme the Yakuza Kiwami launch edition is."

    There is also word about a Reddit AMA coming on September 8 at 12PM (PT) on /r/PS4. Pre-orders for the game get you access to a Yakuza Kiwami theme for the PS4.



    On top of that, the team plans on releasing some free content after the game's release. All of this can be acquired...

  • This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    January 8, 2016 is when we reported that Half-Life writer, Marc Laidlaw, parted ways from Valve. 18 years worth of writing for the company saw him pen some of the best games of our lifetime including the entirety of Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Dota 2, and Portal. It was sad, disappointing, and even a bit frustrating that he left before we ever got to experience his work in Half-Life 3. It's weird to think about Half-Life 3. Fans have wanted it for years now, but Valve just doesn't seem capable of creating it. Perhaps they just don't want to at this point. Why would t...

  • Rockstar Revives Smuggler's Run for GTA Online

    Rockstar Revives Smuggler's Run for GTA Online

    Way back in the day, Rockstar Games made a series of games called Smuggler's Run. Seeing as how the last games in that series came out for the GameCube and PlayStation 2, I'd say it's been a while since Smuggler's Run saw the light of day. That is, it has remained dormant until today.

    GTA Online brings back some of that old feeling with the Smuggler's Run update. You're looking at new planes, helicopters, and ultralights to play with as you try to transport "goods" around San Andreas. I suppose saying it is no longer dormant until "today" is a lie,...

    Fortnite's "Survive the Storm" Update Hits August 29

    The new "Survive the Storm" mode and update is slated to arrive on Fortnite on August 29. I am assuming this is a wave-based survival mode. Let's see if I'm right.
