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...

  • 30 FPS Lock in The Last of Us Remastered Enables Higher Quality Shadows in Game

    According to Crave Online, if you opt to play with the 30 FPS lock enabled for The Last of Us Remastered, you may be treated to some noticeably higher quality shadows. Unfortunately, while Crave and others with early copies are making this claim, there are no comparison screenshots yet that proves that this is indeed true. If it is, however, players are now left with a choice: Do you play with an unlocked framerate that often sits at 60fps or do you lock it down to an assured 30fps framerate with better looking shadows? Framerate or shadows is what your c...

  • BioWare Teases New Project with Super Ominous Email - Possibly Shadow Realms

    Earlier today, I received an email from BioWare saying "You've Been Chosen." I ignored it for a bit since it was sent at almost 5AM and I continued to happily sleep a bit more. I finally get around to watching the trailer linked within and suddenly I'm hit with crazy, creepy visuals that are advertising something new from BioWare.


    The "Nightmare" trailer above comes with the following lines:

    Photo Mode in The Last of Us Remastered Sure Does Look Pretty

    Arne Meyer works at Naughty Dog. He also posts on NeoGAF. A recent post of his at NeoGAF contains an image that Neil Druckman took using the photo mode within The Last of Us Remastered.
    So Neil came by my desk earlier to talk about something and I had photo mode up and he started playing around with it. I left, came back a while better and he left this beauty up on the screen.

    So here you go... a photo mode screenshot personally composed by Neil.


    That sure does look nice....
