Japan is a very special place where obsession goes deep. So very deep for some games, in this instance, that a gamer would purchase a PlayStation 4 branded specifically for that game, and that game alone. Two new versions of the PlayStation 4 are being released for the games The Last of Us Remastered and Destiny - currently in Beta gameplay mode this month.
The Destiny Beta has begun, and just like clockwork, the PlayStation Network - aka PSN - is down. Due to high volume created by what we must assume IS the Destiny Beta release, PSN is experiencing "Connectivity Issues." You can see the official post via PlayStation Support - if you can access it - which suggests that you Try Again Later.
On the morning of July 17th at approximately 11AM PST, we’ll begin seeing keys sent out for the Public Beta for Destiny. This game will be playable starting on the 17th by the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, while the Xbox One and Xbox 360 will have to wait until the 23rd of this month. Destiny Beta for the Xbox One will come in at around 12.63GB - massive - and we expect the PS4 version to deliver something similar.
Hours after the announcement was leaked, Namco Bandai has confirmed it: Tekken 7 is a thing. And it even has a teaser trailer for it. But while old time fans of the Tekken series have panned, if not maligned, recent entries in the franchise, Tekken 7 is a tad interesting, if only for a technical consideration that Namco has revealed as well.
If you thought that gaming consoles are just for the males of the species or that certain animated films are only for the young ones, perhaps it's time drag yourself to the 21st century. As if trying to say that gaming, and some films, are for every person of any age or gender, Sony is selling a limited edition PlayStation 4 console in Japan that has undeniable markings of the Disney 3D animated hit Frozen.
For a relatively limited time - the rest of this month - those with PlayStation Plus will be able to access two most-excellent games on their PlayStation 4 gaming consoles. Today we’re having a brief look at TowerFall Ascension and Strider - aka the rebirth of a couple of classic genres, if you’d be so kind.
This morning we’re seeing Evolution Studios show off DRIVECLUB’s dynamic weather system in two video clips. In addition to seeing how this weather system works, we’re also getting details on the PlayStation 4 bundle that’ll be offered starting at the launch of the game.
