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...

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.

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...

  • Part of Halo 5 is Coming Free to Windows 10

    Part of Halo 5 is Coming Free to Windows 10

    The Halo 5 sandbox known as the Forge is coming for free to a Windows 10 system near you. Yes, this is a standalone sandbox application for Windows 10 and does not include Halo 5 proper.

You can make Rube Goldberg type machines, game modes, minigames, art, or whatever you want really. Those on Windows 10 will have the benefit of using a mouse and keyboard to move and place objects. And while you somewhat play these creations in Windows...

    Sony and Polyphony Digital announced today that Gran Turismo Sport will be released on November 15.

The game includes an Arcade mode, Campaign, Brand Central, Sport mode, Social Features, Livery Editor, and Scapes. All of that will set you back $60 (USD).
