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...

    Even More Rockstar Verified Jobs Added to GTA Online

    New Rockstar Verified Jobs were just added to GTA Online today.
    Corrupt Cops - Created by JuzSlayin Competing Police divisions race across the banks of Procopio Beach in Paleto Bay to take on a large gang of knife-wielding Ballas and confiscate their goods as "evidence". The fun you'll have launching vehicles off ramps to crash down on to the unsuspecting heads of these purple-clad gangbangers cannot be understated, but make sure you don't stop to take in the scenery when you're collecting the bags - the Ballas numbers are high and they certainly know

    Nintendo Hosting Digital E3 Events in Lieu of Live Conference

    Last year, Nintendo opted not to hold a typical E3 press conference. It was a drastic change of pace for the company but it seemed to work out. This year, Nintendo is again going to skip the live conference and opt instead for another digital event.

  • How is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Released on the Xbox One?

    How is The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Released on the Xbox One?

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was slated to be released today. This isn't the weird part. The weird part is that a few weeks ago, this game was "delayed indefinitely" on the Xbox One and all advertising for this game on that platform was halted. That was only for the Xbox One version. The game is also available on the Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii U, PC, and 3DS.

    Hell, even the game's website doesn't even have the Xbox One listed!

    Nobody from either Activision nor Microsoft spoke up about this indefinite delay. No reasons were ever given and n...

  • Choose Your Own Adventure in Latest Wolfenstein: The New Order Gameplay Video

    A new gameplay video for Wolfenstein: The New Order was released today. The latest footage from the game shows "some of the paths that B.J. can choose in his mission to bring down General Deathshead and the Nazi forces."

    A lot of what is seen in the new trailer focuses on some of the early game choices, so while it may contain some spoilers, it shouldn't be anything too major. However, I know that if I didn't say this, some people might get upset that they were spoiled without warning.

    Wolfenstein: The New Order is slated for ...

  • S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha Mod Released

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha Mod Released

    The Lost Alpha mod for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was just released through ModDB. This is the first release of the mod that aims to bring the world a version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. that is as close to the original visions of the game.

    That is to say, they hope that this mod is more akin to what GSC Game World showed around 2002. Since then, the game was pushed back multiple times and changed drastically from what was initially shown. This mod, which began development back in the Summer of 2008, looks to bring it all back to the start.

  • New Video and Release Date Revealed for Divinity: Original Sin

    New Video and Release Date Revealed for Divinity: Original Sin

    The above trailer for Divinity: Original Sin shows off a bit of a "before and after" look at how the game has changed and evolved since its Kickstarter campaign roughly one year ago.

    The official release date for the game is set for June 20, 2014. However, those already playing on Steam Early Access can expect some new improvements and additions to the game as early as today.
