Tokyo 2020 Olympics vid pokes good fun at Japan’s gaming, anime culture

As the Rio 2016 Olympics comes to a close, it was time for the baton to be passed to Japan, who will be hosting the next big international competition. And what better way to introduce the world to the new host than to show them just how wacky the Japanese can be. In a good way of course. In its pitch video for the 2020 Olympics, Japan made some lighthearted, tongue in cheek jokes about the countries perceived obsession with gaming and anime. They even got the highest political power in the country to jump in, almost literally.

Sony has two new PS4’s coming next month

Well, that escalated rather quickly. Hot on the heels of leaks of a “PS4 Slim”, sources have come out to confirm that there will indeed be such a console.

PlayStation 4 “slim” seen at auction site

Most gamers, particularly PS fans, are expecting the impending arrival of the more or less confirmed PS4 Neo.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the FPS’s latest sub-series

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the FPS’s latest sub-series

The release of this year's Call of Duty, titled Infinite Warfare, is fast approaching, and many fans of the long-running franchise still aren't pleased. It mostly boils down to two reasons: either they're unhappy that they have to buy the special edition in order to get the remastered version of the beloved CoD4: Modern Warfare, or they don't like the theme changes from modern combat settings to a futuristic, sci-fi story set in space. Unfortunately for those in the latter camp, there's likely to be more Infinite Warfare titles in the coming years.
