One of the best games to hit the PS3 in a long time was the game The Last of Us. If you are one of the many PS3 gamers who fell in love with that game and now owns a PS4, you might be wondering when you can get some post-apocalyptic action on the next-gen console. Some new details on The Last of Us for the PS4 have surfaced.
In an ambitious move that tries to further narrow the gap between its gaming business and entertainment business, Sony has revealed that it will be bringing an original TV title to its more game-centric PlayStation Network (PSN) service. While no solid details have been revealed yet, the first series to be given the greenlight is "Powers".
Supposing you weren't part of the Disney YouTube channel subscriber list and given backstage passes to the uploading of the entire three-season run of the cartoon Gargoyles last year, you likely had no idea they existed. Existed online as a free set of streaming bits, that is. Now Disney is making it a fully public sort of thing: every single episode of the cartoon Gargoyles is up for the watching, in their entirety, straight through Disney's own YouTube channel. This release comes on the 20th anniversary of the debut of the show, if you'd like your daily reminder of the fact that you've been alive a very long time.
One of the strangest break-out hits of our current generation of multi-platform games is Minecraft, a pixelated game that's headed to the PlayStation 3 this month. While the original Xbox 360 version was released all the way back in May of 2012, this 2013 PlayStation 3 release will be exactly the same, or as similar as the developers at Mojang could make it. This December 17th release also heads off the push to both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita which will be occurring inside 2014.
Today on what very well may be one of the best days of the year to stay at home and play video games, Sony has disabled a collection of PlayStation Network abilities. This disabling of features for the PSN has to do with the network being a bit overloaded - imagine that, today of all days - so they're looking to lighten the load.
As early as last week on the 20th of November, users of the PlayStation Network (aka PSN) have seen their passwords reset without prompt. According to Sony support forum admins, this reset was done "purely as a precautionary measure" without specific evidence of any accounts being compromised.

Nokia has released a somewhat misleading commercial having a go at a tablet that could be interpreted as an Apple iPad while touting its own, new Lumia 2520 tablet. The ad focuses on the competitor tablet's lack of a keyboard and allegedly shorter battery life. The problem with the ad is that it fails to mention that the attachable Nokia Power Keyboard that makes mechanical typing possible on the 2520 -- and extends the tablet's battery life by a claimed 50% -- doesn't come standard with the 2520.
Sony's message this generation is clear: the PlayStation 4 is here to command gaming in the living room. The company does away with any large amount of distractions in all-encompassing entertainment coverage and heads straight and true for the living room-based universe of console games. While you'll be able to work with a variety of ways and means for using the PlayStation 4 in non-traditional senses, here Sony continues its drive for purity, for better or for worse.
