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...

    New Thief Cinematic Trailer - The Queen of Beggars

    The second trailer in the "Stories from the City" series for Thief was released today.

    Nobody knows how old the Queen of the Beggars actually is; rumour has it she's as old as The City itself. Some say that although she is blind, she sees through the eyes of rats that riddle the streets. In the second trailer of the Stories from The City series, the wise old crone gives her views on the City as it goes through a time of death and gloom.

    Thief is slated for a February 2014 release on the PC, PS3, PS4, 360, and Xbone....

    Killing Floor: Calamity is a Top Down Title for the Ouya

    Tripwire Interactive released a spin-off title today that is exclusive for the Ouya. Yeah, weird isn't it? The game is a top down action title called Killing Floor: Calamity.


    Tripwire Interactive's VP, Alan Wilson, may have been busy hitting the rum eggnog early when he said the Ouya is "leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed." Huh, alright then.
    "We feel Ouya is leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed today and, as our history suggests

  • DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    It seems as though fans were more than eager to jump all over the early alpha release of the standalone version of DayZ on Steam. The game already picked up $5.1 million in sales in the first 24 hours with 88,000 players joining up in the first 12 hours.


    Those figures equate to over 172,000 copies of the game sold already. Considering that this game is listed as Early Access on Steam and is also very much in alpha status, that is quite the impressive feat.

    New Legend of Zelda Game Coming from Tecmo Koei - Hyrule Warriors

    The good news is that a new game is coming in The Legend of Zelda franchise for the Wii U! The odd news is that this new game is coming from Tecmo Koei and looks a lot like a Dynasty Warriors game but with Link.

    The tentative name is Hyrule Warriors and it features Link going around fighting a lot of enemies.


    It almost feels as though Nintendo is just throwing ideas at a wall and seeing what sticks to try saving the poor performing Wii U....
