Layoffs Hit PlayStation Europe

SIEE had no prior knowledge of PS5 reveal.

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...

PlayStation 5 Confirmed for Holiday 2020 Release

Sony dishes more details about their next-gen console and controller.

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.

    Short Chainlink Mode Tutorial for Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth

    Here is how the new Chainlink mode will play out in Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth.

    As you can see, tickets will count down faster against the other team based on how many points you have control of in a row.

  • Ubisoft Readies a New Cycle of Assassin's Creed Games Beginning with Assassin's Creed Unity

    When Assassin's Creed Unity is released, it will signal the beginning of a "new cycle of Assassin's Creed games" from Ubisoft.
    Alex Amancio, Creative Director on Unity: "It's a new start, it's a new narrative start. That is symbolized by a completely new context for the present day. You've seen a little bit of an evolution with Black Flag. We're not going to do the same thing. What we're doing with Unity is really the beginning (of) this new cycle of Assassin's Creed games.
