Using PlayStation Now, gamers can stream more than 400 PlayStation 3 titles to their PC, giving them a chance to revisit old favorites from the previous generation or catching up on what they may have missed.

We've got some sour news for you PlayStation Plus subscribers, as Sony has revealed that the cost of the service will be increasing next month.

Disney Infinity servers close in March 2017, PC & mobile versions unplayable in September

Back in May, Disney announced that it was ending production of its expansive Disney Infinity game series as it exited game publishing entirely. Now the company has detailed the shut down process for the game's online services, and simply put, it's a bit messy. Disney Infinity was released on so many different platforms, with several ways to buy it on PC alone, and it seems like there's different stages of the shut down for each version.

PlayStation Vue Review: two months with Sony’s TV service

PlayStation Vue Review: two months with Sony’s TV service

In mid-March, Sony rolled out its previously limited PlayStation Vue service across the nation, bringing three channel packages to anyone with a PS3 or PS4, Amazon Fire TV/Fire Stick, or iPhone/iPad (and, as of June 29, Android). I'd been using Sling TV before this, but I was never too pleased with the service and so when the opportunity came to switch, I did. I've been using PlayStation Vue for the last two or so months and feel confident saying that, for the most part, it's pretty great.

GameStop rolls Xbox 360, PS3, Wii into one mega bundle

We're already well into the era of Xbox One and PS4, but if you somehow managed to miss out on the previous console generation entirely, GameStop has a new console bundle directly targeted at you. The massive games retailer has announced that it will bundle the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii together, putting a price tag of $160 on the package. Obviously, this is meant to help GameStop clear out its remaining stock of these increasingly obsolete consoles, but it's not a bad deal for someone looking to pick up these older consoles on the cheap.

Sony settles with PS3 owners over Linux lawsuit

Sony settles with PS3 owners over Linux lawsuit

A long-running class-action lawsuit from PlayStation 3 owners angry over losing the ability to run Linux on the console may finally be over. When the PS3 launched in 2006, it featured support for "OtherOS," which let owners install Linux on the console's hard drive. Only a few short years later, Sony disabled the feature in a software update, claiming it was necessary to fight piracy. After years of court battles, Sony has now agreed to a settlement worth millions of dollars.

Destiny developer Bungie gives more details on leaving PS3, Xbox 360 behind

When Destiny's upcoming expansion, Rise of Iron, was officially revealed during a livestream just a few days before E3, developer Bungie clearly stated that the content would not be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, now referred to as "legacy consoles." In other words, all future development and releases would be exclusive to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Now Bungie has revealed more concrete details about how Destiny will work on those older consoles, and how players can migrate their progress to the current platforms.

The Beatles: Rock Band DLC will disappear next month

Rock Band is a game that holds a special place in my heart. Sure, Guitar Hero introduced me to the genre, but I've spent so many nights rocking out with my friends on our sweet plastic instruments. The game has nearly 1,700 downloadable songs that have been released, but starting next month, some of them will disappear forever.

Grand Theft Auto V has made “at least” $500 million from microtransactions

Grand Theft Auto V has made “at least” $500 million from microtransactions

Microtransactions are a double-edged sword. Through them developers can earn additional money, which can fund future content, and can allow them to release games and content for less than they might have, without them. But they can also be a cash cow that helps those who don’t mind spending cash, and leaves those on a tight budget feeling left behind.
