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...

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...

  • Rumor: Destiny's Next Expansion Called 'The Taken King'

    Rumor: Destiny's Next Expansion Called 'The Taken King'

    A new promotion from Red Bull may have accidentally let slip the name of the next expansion in the works for Destiny. The promo shows off a means to get "bonus XP" for something called Destiny: The Taken King. It also makes mention of a Flamesword, which could potentially be a new weapon or game mechanic for the expansion.



    The images originally came from Agrios Endendros via Twitter (2).

    The expansion is still probably quite a ways off, however. The newest expansion, House of Wolves, was only released a couple of...

    Geoff Keighley Hosting YouTube Live at E3

    Geoff Keighley is slated to be the host for YouTube Live at E3. Starting June 14, you can get your fill of Keighley during the duration of E3.

    I was largely a fan of what Keighley did with The Game Awards 2014, so I have high expectations for what he'll do with this. He's at his best when he's not constrained by a lot of red tape.
