A small group of Blizzard employees are protesting against the actions of their employer.

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...

    Quick! Tell Us Which Game is Modern Warfare 2 and Which is Ghosts?

    Ah yes, it looks as though Infinity Ward copied from their own game for a scene in Call of Duty: Ghosts. The scenes in question are from the ending of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 while the Ghosts' scene is from the start of the game.
