PlayStation Network Download Prices Unveiled

PlayStation Network Download Prices Unveiled

In a classic case of procrastination, Sony has JUST announced the first set of prices for their PlayStation Network downloads, a full 48 hours before the consoles go on sale over in Japan. While we've only been given the price for one of the downloads, this should give us some idea as to Sony's complete pricing plan for their lineup.

Sony's Blast Factor will retail on the download store for 840 yen; roughly $7.00 USD. There will also be a free demo available if you want to see if the game is any good before dropping a whole 7 bucks on it. The game itself will require at least 95 MB of hard drive space for installation, making this download come in slightly larger than first-generation Xbox Live! Arcade titles. Oh well, if it's a fun game, you can stand the extra download time, right?

PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

Sony's new PlayStation Vue service serves to compete with Dish Network's Sling TV and somewhat with the upcoming HBO NOW service, though Vue costs more than both and is in some ways superior (depending on your needs). On Friday, Sony announced that the service has expanded to include a few more channels, all of them being part of AMC Networks' lineup. This includes the AMC channel itself, as well as IFC, Sundance, and WEtv. Not all of them are available in every subscription package, however, a limitation that will be familiar to any cable subscriber.

Apple may ask networks to handle their own streams for Apple TV

Apple may ask networks to handle their own streams for Apple TV

With Apple TV seeing a price drop at Apple’s latest event for the Apple Watch and MacBook, we all assume new hardware is inbound. A report subsequently outlined what the new hardware was all about (allegedly, of course), giving many of us reason to pause before getting our hands on an Apple TV at a discounted price. Hardware is nothing without god software, and int he case of Apple TV — content. Rather than try to create their own TV streaming network, Apple is reportedly asking TV networks to handle the lifting.

PlayStation Vue: here’s what you need to know

PlayStation Vue: here’s what you need to know

Sony's newest TV-based venture is PlayStation Vue, a system that works specifically on their PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 gaming devices.

For the time being, PlayStation Vue - a TV channel service - will be available to Chicago, New York City, and Philadelphia only, though more cities are on the way in the near future.

Sony launches PlayStation Vue TV service in Philly, Chicago & NYC

Sony launches PlayStation Vue TV service in Philly, Chicago & NYC

In an effort to make your console more relevant to your TV experience than gaming, Sony is soft-launching PlayStation Vue. Their Internet TV service is robust, sporting 55 channels of take-it-or-leave-it TV. There are no complicated bundles — you get 55 channels with Vue’s starting point. It’s competitive with Sling TV as a streaming TV option, but might leave some wanting. The service notably lacks ESPN, a major feature for Sling TV. PlayStation Vue also costs $49.99/month for the basic package, well above Sling TV’s $20/month starting point.

PlayStation Now coming to the UK via private beta this Spring

PlayStation Now is US-only, and that’s pretty lame. We’re not fans of region-locked services like that, so when we hear they’ll be opening up to new markets, it’s exciting. Such is the news today, where we’ve learned Sony is opening up PlayStation Now to the UK. Via a private beta program, those in the UK with a PlayStation 4 — and who are members of PlayStation Plus — can be among the first to sign up for the PlayStation Now network in the UK.
