PlayStation 4 Christmas gift is a block of wood

PlayStation 4 Christmas gift is a block of wood

A Christmas gift from no less than Santa Clause himself was opened this past week with a less-than-fantastic bit of content. Inside the box was a block of wood instead of the console itself. Cut to a similar size and placed in the box, apparently without signs of damage to the box itself. Amazing that Santa would have such a strange mishap, yes? As it turned out, Santa purchased this particular PS4 from a local Target store, where they were more than willing to take the box back and, in addition, give the parents of the gift-getter a $100 gift card for their trouble.

Sony breaks out PlayStation Messages into its own app

Almost anyone and everyone has a messaging platform these days and it seems that Sony isn't going to be left behind. Sort of. The Japanese tech giant does have its messaging service but it is one that is intimately tied to its PlayStation Network and, therefore, to gaming. That, of course, doesn't mean that there's no room for yet one more messsagin app, right? Welcome PlayStation Messages, the standalone yet connected messaging app sprung forth from its former all-in-one PlayStation App on smartphones.

PlayStation VR games debut, prepping for 2016 launch

At the PlayStation Experience event over the weekend, Sony and its partner game developers revealed their play to once again wrest the attention away from the Xbox One and its backwards compatibility feature and back to the PlayStation. And while there were quite a handful of exciting teasers, including the long overdue Final Fantasy VII remake, one of the highlights of the event is a new, and somewhat risky, venture for Sony. The PlayStation VR seems to be shaping up quite nicely, and to prove that it's on track for a 2016 release, 8 new titles for the VR gaming headset and platform were teased.

PS4 remote play will work for PC AND Mac

Apple computers as well as Windows computers will be able to roll with the official version of Sony's PlayStation 4 Remote Play functionality. Official word came from the master himself, Shuhei Yoshida, on Twitter just this week. Just after a 3rd-party developer made his mark on the world by creating an official app for Windows machines to stream PS4 gameplay, Sony announces that they've essentially seen the value. This isn't all that great a piece of news for the developer of the unofficial app, which will become less-than-necessary soon - but we'll give him a hearty round of applause in the meantime.

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta opens today at 10AM PST

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta opens today at 10AM PST

Thursday the 8th of October, 2015, the Star Wars Battlefront BETA began opening its doors to the public. This open invitation will be brought to users on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, including several modes of play and environments. This BETA test will be sent out for two reasons. The first is to test the servers - any game that's based primarily in an online environment such as this needs time to make certain it'll be able to be handled at scale. The second reason this BETA exists is that the game itself must be tested for flaws by a large number of users - tiny flaws like bonus icons disappearing when you throw a thermal detonator - that's what they'll looking for.

HITMAN delayed until March

HITMAN delayed until March

While the next HITMAN game was until recently set for release on December 8th, it's been delayed. The creators of the game at Io-Interactive suggest that this game is the "biggest venture [they've] ever undertaken" and that the playable area and density of the game is beyond any game they've created before. This release date change is suggested to be allowing for more content to be added to the game's initial content set. The creators will then "follow with a tighter frequency of updates" than they'd originally planned.
