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.

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.

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...

  • New Destiny 2 Screenshots

    New Destiny 2 Screenshots

    Hey, guess what? There was some little Destiny 2 event today. Some stuff was probably shown off like some new CG trailers and gameplay, plus some silly nonsense about the PC version being Battle.net exclusive. None of that is important (until I get those videos up later). What is important right now are these new screenshots from Destiny 2.

    Enjoy these shots that you might not be able to differentiate from Destiny 1 screenshots!

  • Nintendo Updates Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to Remove Potentially Offensive Gesture

    Nintendo made a small update to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch. The update includes a few adjustments including a small change to one of Inkling Girl's animations.

    The changes shown below come to us courtesy of Neiteio from NeoGAF.


    Left is the new one, right is the old one
    The old one could maybe be taken in some European countries, such as Italy, as "fuck you." Let me just stop anybody that thinks this is in any way "censorship." First off, shut up. Secondly, this is Nintendo's IP and they are free to edit con...

    Capcom Again Sets Unrealistic Sales Goal. This Time for Resident Evil 7

    During a post-earnings Q&A session, Capcom revealed that they want to see Resident Evil 7 hit lifetime sales figures of 10 million units. Ten. Million. Units.

    Let's put that into some sort of perspective for you.

    From its launch in January through to March, Resident Evil 7 shipped 3.5 million units. This was already about 500,000 units short of their initial plan to sell 4 million units in that same span of time.

    Right now, the best selling Resident Evil title is... If you said Resident Evil 4, you'd be wrong. It's actually...
