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...

  • Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    It's being beat by games that have been out for far longer.

    This week, Microsoft updated their most played games section on their store. These are the most played games in the Xbox ecosystem from 1 to 49. Why 49 and not 50? How am I supposed to know? The important part here is that Anthem has now fallen off of this most played list.

    The last handful of games on the list include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Borderlands 2, Brawlhalla, and Battlefield 1. That's Battlefield 1, not the more recent Battlefield 5 which is actually looking to be the 23rd...

    Nioh 2 Closed Alpha Teaser

    Pull my devil trigger?

    A new teaser trailer is out today for Nioh 2. This trailer gives you a little glimpse of the upcoming closed alpha for the game. Invites for the alpha have already gone out to some PlayStation 4 owners. According to Team Ninja, there are no plans to expand the alpha beyond those who are already invited.

    Like its predecessor, Nioh 2 looks to bring even more action and exploration to fans that liked the original. It seems as though there will once again be a wide variety of enemies to face, moves to master, and even something...

  • 'Absolute Majority' of Metro Exodus Sales Were on Consoles

    'Absolute Majority' of Metro Exodus Sales Were on Consoles

    THQ Nordic founder tries to avoid talking about Epic Games Store sales figures.

    Lars Wingefors, THQ Nordic's CEO and founder, seemed rather reserved when talking about the sales figures for some of THQ's most publicized releases this past year. Specifically, he shied away from talking specifics when it comes to PC sales of games like Metro Exodus and outright ignores another question regarding sales of Satisfactory.

    A lot of this information came courtesy of the latest earnings call for the company.

    According to those who listened...

    RuneScape Expanding with 'The Land Out of Time'

    Get ready for a "Jurassic spark" this July.

    That quip above is almost directly from the press release. It was just too good to pass up and I sure couldn't think of anything better. This July, RuneScape players will get to adventure in an all-new environment. The new area is called Anachronia and it's being called "The Land Out of Time."

    Can you guess why?

    That's right, there will be dinosaurs! This land was pulled straight out of the past by the evil Kerapac. Players will continue to track "the dragonkin"...

    New Gameplay Trailer for The Sinking City

    Witness the madness.

    A new gameplay trailer is out today for The Sinking City. As we've talked about already, The Sinking City is a game smothered in Cthulhu mythos and wrapped in plenty of detective focused action. It's being developed by Frogwares and published by Bigben. There was another gameplay video, released just this past month, that focused more on the investigation side of things.

    The Sinking City is currently slated to be released on June 27 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store. ...

    Valve Releases Stand-alone Steam Chat App for Mobile

    As Facebook has Messenger, Steam has Steam Chat.

    Valve just released the new Steam Chat application for both iOS and Android mobile devices. This is a new stand-alone app that allows you to have all of the features of Steam chat in a more lightweight application.

    If you're still confused, maybe this will make it a bit easier to understand. You know how there is the bloated Facebook app for mobile phones? And you know how Facebook has a private messaging system that they broke off into its own app called Messenger? Messenger allows you to chat...

  • PSA: Big PlayStation Store Sale is Live - Offers Double Discounts for Plus Subscribers

    Some games can be had for up to 80% off.

    Sony just kicked off a big double discount sale for a bunch of PlayStation 4 games, a decent amount of PlayStation 3 titles, and a handful of Vita games. I say that this is a "double discount" because that's what Sony is saying. There is already a sale price for non PlayStation Plus subscribers. But if you are a Plus subscriber, there is an additional discount on top.

    This means that non-Plus subscribers can get up to 40% off on select titles during this sale, while Plus subs can get up to 80%...

  • Superhot VR Released on Oculus Quest

    Superhot VR Released on Oculus Quest

    Oh yeah, the Oculus Quest and Rift-S are out today too.

    The Superhot team have released an Oculus Quest version of Superhot VR today. This new release goes hand in hand with today's release of the Oculus Quest. The team is calling this release the "definitive Superhot VR experience." As an owner of the regular Rift and Superhot VR, that kind of stings a bit to hear.

    However, there is the fact that the Quest doesn't have any wires hanging off of it, nor does it need any external sensors set up. This now allows Superhot VR for the Quest...
