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...

  • Call of Duty: Ghosts Rumored to Run at 720p on Xbox One and 1080p on PlayStation 4

    Man alive, the rumors are flying high tonight with respect to what resolution Call of Duty: Ghosts will run at on the next-gen consoles. Various sources over at NeoGAF, a few very accurate ones at that (based on their past reveals), say that CoD: Ghosts runs at just 720p and 60fps on the Xbox One. This is in contrast to the word that the PS4 version of the game will run it at 1080p resolution. The NeoGAF thread is already full of pages upon pages of people debating the validity of these separate claims that have all said the same thing. It seems as though ...

  • Dark Matter Pulled from Steam After Complaints Over it Being Unfinished

    Dark Matter Pulled from Steam After Complaints Over it Being Unfinished

    Dark Matter was a new side-scrolling title in the same vein as a Castlevania or Metroid title that went up on Steam and GoG just last week. Immediately, a number of users came to the conclusion that the game was simply not finished. What led them to that conclusion? Well, the ending came very, very abruptly as your character walks through a door a few short hours into the game and a simple text message pops up telling you what the end of the game is. That's it. That was literally it. Naturally those who paid for the game were left unsatisfied at the unfinished produ...
