PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

Sony's new PlayStation Vue service serves to compete with Dish Network's Sling TV and somewhat with the upcoming HBO NOW service, though Vue costs more than both and is in some ways superior (depending on your needs). On Friday, Sony announced that the service has expanded to include a few more channels, all of them being part of AMC Networks' lineup. This includes the AMC channel itself, as well as IFC, Sundance, and WEtv. Not all of them are available in every subscription package, however, a limitation that will be familiar to any cable subscriber.

In the gaming universe, things are changing. While we'll likely never reach a point where it'll be the manufacturers of hardware or the developers of software that take full control of the console ecosystem, today you can mark one up for the latter. Instead of working with their own Music Unlimited system, Sony has decided to team up with Spotify - to great effect. Today Sony not only ends their Music Unlimited system completely across all PlayStation hardware, it begins 30 days of free use of Spotify. Sony is so confident in this team-up, they're tossing out the old and giving the new away for free.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

To suggest that Final Fantasy Type-0's international release was "long awaited" would be a gross understatement. The original game (pre-HD)'s demo was first released in August of 2011, back before the first whispers of an 8th-generation console release. Originally titled Final Fantasy Agito XIII for its non-HD PSP release, this game was eventually re-named Final Fantasy Type-0, so named for its original approach in battle in the Final Fantasy universe. Here we've got Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a game that's been in development since mid-2012 for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

While we're sure there'll be more than a few appearances by this miscreant before the day is through, first Jason hits Mortal Kombat X. In just about the most appropriate place for him to be - other than in a horror game that never was - here Mr. Voorhees will be murdering his opponents in a side-scrolling person-vs-person fighter environment just like his hell-bound predecessor. What's that? There was another cult classic horror film appearance in Mortal Kombat before? Of course there was!
