PlayStation 5 Starting at $400, Launches Starting November 12

$400 for digital-only, $500 for the full system.

The next-gen is now fully in gear. With Microsoft announcing the price and release date of their Xbox Series X, the only piece of the puzzle that remained was what Sony would do with the PlayStation 5. Today, the company announced that the Digital Edition will retail for $399.99 (USD) while the "regular" version with a disc drive will retail for $499.99.

Both consoles are expected to launch in select countries...
 

EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

  • Rumor: Is This Amazon's Bluetooth Controller?

    Rumor: Is This Amazon's Bluetooth Controller?

    According to Zats Not Funny, this may very well be the design for the Amazon branded Bluetooth controller coming out.

    They allegedly snagged these images from the Brazilian equivalent of the United States' FCC. The controller, if real, includes a fairly familiar design that 360 gamers should be familiar with. It also includes media player buttons on the front and typical Android-like navigation buttons on the top.


    And so the speculation that Amazon is m...

  • NPD Sales Figures for February Show Strong Figures for PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U

    The NPD sales figures for both software and hardware for the month of February 2014 were released earlier this evening. Keep in mind that the NPD does not know much of anything when it comes to digital sales of software and other figures are outright speculation.

    With that in mind, let's take a look at the software sales leaders for February.
    1. Call of Duty: Ghosts (360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, PC) 2. The Lego Movie Videogame (360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U, Xbox One,

    Creating the Alien in Alien: Isolation

    I can imagine that the visual look for the Alien in Alien: Isolation didn't take much thought. They did have a bunch of material to work with already for that. However, you probably don't know yet what an Alien thinks why they do what they do. That's where this latest trailer for Alien: Isolation comes into play.

    Here is "Creating the Alien."


    Alien: Isolation is slated for release in late 2014 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC....

  • League of Legends Professional Gamer Attempts Suicide After Revealing Shady Gambling Practices and Match Fixing by Manager

    A former Korean professional League of Legends player, Pimir, wrote a "goodbye" letter moments before attempting suicide. In the letter, he revealed that the team's manager, Noh, forced the team to throw matches in order to win a variety of gambling bets. Yes, he was betting against his own team.

    Valve Added a Report Function for Games on Steam

    Ever wanted to report a game on Steam for some odd reason or another? Well, now you can!

    A "report this product" feature was added today to every game on Steam. Simply click on a little flag icon (to the right of where it says "Share" and "Embed") to get the following report window.

    There is really no telling what function this will really have as I doubt many titles will be (nor should be) pulled simply for offending a few people, but I suppose we'll have to wai...
