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."

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.

    Dead Rising 3 PC May Experience Issues Above 30 Frames per Second

    The latest Capcom Unity Twitch stream from E3 2014 about Dead Rising 3 on the PC raised more than a few eyebrows yesterday.

The studio will allow users to uncap the framerate but they assume no responsibility for any oddities that may occur as a result.

    NeoGAF singles out the quotes from the developers from the Twitch stream.
