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...

    Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is Out Now

    The latest from Ubisoft is here and it's mediocre.

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is now available to everyone. While some players were able to play a few days ago, those that did not spring for the more pricey versions had to wait until today.

    Players are now free to explore the fictional land of Auroa on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Up to four players can join forces to take down Lt. Col. Cole D. Walker (Jon Bernthal) and his group of Wolves. Wolves in this case are a group of soldiers not, you know, actual wolves.

    Call of Duty: Mobile Surpasses 35 Million Downloads

    Not bad for a game released three days ago.

    Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Mobile has surpassed 35 million downloads across iOS and Android devices. According to the publisher, this game has been downloaded faster than any other first-person or third-person mobile action game. Of course, this factoid is based off of Activision's own internal estimates.

    Still, Call of Duty: Mobile was released on October 1, a mere three days ago. To have already hit 35 million downloads is still quite impressive. The game is a free download that...

    The Tiny Bang Story is Out Now on Nintendo Switch

    Solve puzzles in order to save a tiny planet.

    Ellada Games and developer Colibri Games just released The Tiny Bang Story today on the Nintendo Switch. This game tasks you with solving a bunch of puzzles, exploring, and trying to restore Tiny Planet after a meteor broke it into numerous puzzle-shaped pieces.

    The visuals are hand-drawn and have a certain charm to them. The game is being sold for just $9.99 (USD) for the Nintendo Switch. I don't know how long this game is but $10 for a game sounds pretty good.

    The Tiny Bang Story is...

    Gaming Projectors vs Home Theater Units

    The family room is no longer just a place where the family gathers to watch television or movies. Now, parents and children alike use the family room as a place to play video games. Statistics show that in the United States more than 150 million Americans play video games.

    A mistake that some families make is setting up their family room without taking video game playing into consideration. This is especially true when talking about their selection of projectors.

    But you might ask, aren’t all projectors the same? A lot of people have opted to...

    Epic Responds to Complaints About Fortnite Cross-Platform Play

    Developer will continue with their plans despite fan complaints.

    Cross-platform play seems to be all the rage these days and it's only going to keep gaining support as time goes on. However, it seems as though some fans of the still popular battle royale game, Fortnite, aren't too keen on the idea.

    A recent change to the game introduced skill-based matchmaking. This is a system that tries to put players of similar skill together in the same match. Players noticed that with this new system they were being pitted against players across different...

    Death Stranding 'The Drop' Trailer

    A new Death Stranding promotional trailer is out.

    There is a new, short promo trailer out today for Death Stranding. Watch as Sam Porter Bridges tries to reconnect a broken nation. Maybe he'll use bridges to do this. Bridges that will help him to transport his deliveries. Maybe he'll eventually get to make portals that help him to bridge together large distances.

    Only the most subtle of symbolism from Hideo Kojima.

    Death Stranding is out on November 8, 2019 for the PlayStation 4. ...

    Randy Pitchford, Gearbox, and Their Former Lawyer Drop Lawsuits

    All parties resolve "misunderstandings" as evidence exonerates Randy Pitchford.

    If you need to get up to speed on what is going on here, I suggest you check out the previous update from August where we go over the events of this long legal battle between Gearbox, Randy Pitchford, and Gearbox's former lawyer, Wade Callender. In short, Pitchford and Callender were suing each other over various grievances. Everyone involved came off as incredibly scummy in their own way. Like seriously, there is a lot to take in with all of this from stealing money...
