Sony’s PlayStation Experience: here’s what you missed

Sony’s PlayStation Experience: here’s what you missed

Sony just finished its standalone PlayStation Experience media event in Las Vegas this weekend, and it unloaded a ton of teasers on gamers. Not all of them good, unfortunately. But if you weren't keeping tabs on the press conference, you need not fret as there is plenty of time to catch up before the games hit stores next year. As to what those games are, it's a wide collection of sequels to iconic titles like Street Fighter and Yakuza, as well as a bunch of new inventions from indie developers.

PS4 20th Anniversary Edition preorders begin, sell out in minutes

PS4 20th Anniversary Edition preorders begin, sell out in minutes

It was less than a week ago that Sony announced its special edition 20th Anniversary-themed PlayStation 4 console, featuring a gray paint job to match the original PlayStation system and limited to only 12,300 units worldwide. All Sony said was that preorders would start on December 6th in the U.S., but they didn't detail how or where reservations could be made. Well, the 6th has passed, and if you weren't one of very luck to place an order, you've probably missed your chance.

Street Fighter 5 trailer taps PS4/PC release

Street Fighter 5 trailer taps PS4/PC release

This morning a trailer was leaked for Street Fighter 5. This trailer was almost certainly set to be released in full this weekend, during the PlayStation Experience event series in Las Vegas, Nevada. Instead, we're seeing the bits and pieces of this next-generation release appear here, in super-short mode. Capcom continues to helm, and the game appears to mix some futuristic backing effects with previous-yen fighting animatics. This is also very likely an early look at the game, with final graphics not yet shown.

Why Xbox One could win the holiday gaming war

Why Xbox One could win the holiday gaming war

As a longtime gamer, I’ve seen the ups and downs that befall even the greatest of video game companies. I’ve watched companies like SEGA and Nintendo rise and fall, I’ve watched Sony take a few missteps, and I’ve watched Microsoft become an important player in today’s marketplace. At the risk of dating myself, I even remember the good ol’ days of Atari rising and falling and an odd device named the 3DO failing to captivate gamers (well, besides me, who still finds time to play it from time to time).

PS4 20th Anniversary Edition goes original PlayStation grey

PS4 20th Anniversary Edition goes original PlayStation grey

It's the PlayStation's 20th anniversary, and what better way for Sony to celebrate than a limited-edition PS4 finished in the "Original Grey" of the very first console. Going up for sale in very limited numbers - just 12,300 worldwide, a nod to the original PlayStation's launch date - the PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition has a matching grey controller and camera; Sony has been so completist in its color treatment that all the cables and other accessories in the box match, too.

Assassin’s Creed: Victory – 2015’s AC heads to London

Assassin’s Creed: Victory – 2015’s AC heads to London

Victorian Era London has been leaked as the next big location for Ubisoft's yearly Assassin's Creed release. This game will be sent out to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and is currently code-named - or perhaps named in the end - Assassin's Creed Victory. Assassin's Creed Unity was originally code-named Unity, so we could very well see the same sort of situation take hold here. Screenshots of this game have leaked alongside the name and location, showing how far along this game is in development - or at least in presentation.

Xbox One won the Black Friday battle says research

Xbox One won the Black Friday battle says research

Microsoft's Xbox One may be lagging behind the PlayStation 4 when it comes to hitting sales milestones, but the console proved to be the winner when it came to Black Friday demand, with one analysis firm declaring it the clear leader in retail interest. InfoScout crunched the sales numbers on over 180,000 receipts from US shoppers on Friday, November 31, and found that more than half of all consoles bought were the Xbox One. However, while it was forced into second place, the PS4 still had a better year than in 2013.

Sony betting big on gaming and image sensors for next 3 years

Sony betting big on gaming and image sensors for next 3 years

This week Sony suggests that they'll be redirecting their concentration away from mobile devices and TVs over the next three years, aiming instead at gaming and image sensors. Given their success in selling the PlayStation 4 and surrounding technologies, Sony is ready to go big with their gaming segment. The same is true of image sensors, readying their technology for the next generation of cameras and smart devices of all kinds. It should come as no surprise that Sony would pull back on their Mobile Communications Segment as forecasts there show the only operating income loss amongst all of Sony's products.
