    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 is about to release the 7.00 system update for all PlayStation 4 owners later this week. This update has been a part of a public beta test since near the end of July 2019. This long testing period should hopefully mean that all of the issues have been ironed out prior to the public release.

    What are the big features planned for 7.00? First and foremost we will see the increase in the number of players supported in a PlayStation 4 Party. The current maximum number of players is 8....

    Shawn Layden Out as Boss of PlayStation Worldwide Studios

    Layden's departure was announced suddenly via Twitter.

    PlayStation Worldwide Studios boss Shawn Layden is "departing" from the studio according to a new tweet sent out by Sony.

    This announcement seems to have come rather suddenly and with little to nothing in the way of foreshadowing. Layden was with Sony for over 30 years. He began in 1987 working in public relations for the tech giant. He then moved on to be an assistant to Sony co-founder Akio Morito for a number of years.

    Shawn Layden then managed an international software...

  • PSA: Big PlayStation Store Sale is Live - Offers Double Discounts for Plus Subscribers

    Some games can be had for up to 80% off.

    Sony just kicked off a big double discount sale for a bunch of PlayStation 4 games, a decent amount of PlayStation 3 titles, and a handful of Vita games. I say that this is a "double discount" because that's what Sony is saying. There is already a sale price for non PlayStation Plus subscribers. But if you are a Plus subscriber, there is an additional discount on top.

    This means that non-Plus subscribers can get up to 40% off on select titles during this sale, while Plus subs can get up to 80%...
