Next-gen PlayStation could be 8 times faster than PS4 Pro

The Nintendo Switch may be the darling of the console gaming market but when it comes to raw power, the Xbox One and PS4 are still the ones to beat. Especially the PS4 Pro, which unlike its Microsoft rival, is able to support VR experiences.

Final Fantasy VII Remake gameplay trailer reassures fans it’s all real

Final Fantasy VII Remake gameplay trailer reassures fans it’s all real

Given how long fans have been dying to see Final Fantasy VII in glorious photorealistic 3D and how long Square Enix has been promising it's coming, it's not hard to be suspicious and critical of the publisher's silence on the matter. After all, it's easy enough to whip up cutscenes or wallpapers to tease the public. Fortunately, at Sony's recent State of Play, it showed actual gameplay footage of what could be, once again, the most anticipated game that will hopefully actually be released soon.

Best Buy is now handing out PlayStation Classics as free bonus items

Best Buy is now handing out PlayStation Classics as free bonus items

At this point, it's probably safe to say that PlayStation Classic has flopped. The idea behind it was solid enough, as there's definitely a nostalgia-fueled demand for retro consoles like this, but when the PlayStation Classic released, it became clear that Sony's execution was at least a little off. What followed this realization were a series of price cuts that ultimately saw many retailers offering the PlayStation Classic at half (or even more) off its original retail price of $100.

Sony’s PlayStation 5 release date teasing gets more specific

Just last week, Sony shared the first official details about the PlayStation 5. Even though that's a sure sign the next generation is on the way, Sony didn't mention anything about the PS5's release date or pricing.

Sony’s $70k Android TV is PS5’s secret weapon

So you've heard about the PlayStation 5 features confirmed by Sony this month - but one big piece of the puzzle remains missing. A video game console like a PlayStation is only half of the equation. You also need a television - or at least a monitor - to make use of the power of the console.

Tips: PS5 powerful, but Xbox Two expandably more

Tips: PS5 powerful, but Xbox Two expandably more

Why do we care so very much about the respective power levels of each new video game console? Apparently, as rumors of PS5 and Xbox One 2 (or whatever you'd like to call it) suggest, it's not even that we care about the features of the device, but that our device is better than its biggest competitor. Have we been roped in by Sony and Microsoft for a never-ending battle of oneupmanship and, in the process, are emptying our wallets out each new iteration? I mean, probably yes.

Sony now automatically replaces offensive PSN IDs with placeholders

This week, Sony finally made it possible for PlayStation users to change their PSN ID, a request players have been making for years. Ahead of the feature's broad launch to all customers, however, Sony published a long list of FAQ about the change and usernames in general. Among other things, players were warned their new name shouldn't violate the company's guidelines, and now we know what happens when someone doesn't follow that rule.
