PS4 and PS5 Spider-Man situation is a mess

PS4 and PS5 Spider-Man situation is a mess

As if it needed even more negative attention, Sony's PlayStation 5 might end up ruffling the feathers of a certain intersection of PS5 owners and Spider-Man's fans. Marvel's Spider-Man for the PS4 has garnered mostly positive reviews and fans are looking forward to the Spider-Man: Miles Morales launch for both PlayStation generations. While it will, of course, be possible to play the PS4 versions of these two games on the PS5, gamers might have to pay extra depending on what they're buying or have already bought.

PlayStation Phone 2 and an alternate Google Nexus

This week a device appeared on an auction site with the title "Xperia Play2". This device is not a PSP, nor is it a handheld gaming device made by Sony with any other name. Instead, this would appear to be a real prototype of a device that'd be a direct follow-up to the original PlayStation phone: Sony Xperia Play.

Sony promises more PS5 coming through 2020

Sony promises more PS5 coming through 2020

Things are not starting well for the PlayStation 5 and the superstitious might think of recent events as an omen. From debates around its design to some rather disappointing news about some of its capabilities as well as launch titles, the PS5 seems to already be surrounded by not so positive chatter even before it formally launches. The latest is perhaps the most discouraging, with a pre-order brouhaha that now has Sony apologizing and promising that the year won't end badly for the next-get console.

PlayStation 5 NCC photos emphasize its massive size

Sony's upcoming console hasn't been without its fair share of controversy even as fans start counting down the weeks before the PlayStation 5 launches. The design of the console itself was already a point of heated discussion, with some loving it and others mocking it. One thing that may not have been given much attention, however, is the size of the console even after Sony gave the figures. Thankfully, Taiwan's NCC has published photos of an actual PS5 that really puts that size into perspective.

Amazon’s PS5 preorders could be delayed past release day

Many consumers found the price agreeable and were quick to preorder the console, but now there's some bad news to go alongside them: delays. Amazon has fired off an email to many customers who preordered the next-generation console through its platform, warning that shipments may be delayed beyond the console's release date.

All of the Fortnite secrets you missed in Sony’s PS5 teaser yesterday

Yesterday, Sony revealed the gameplay for a number of titles coming to the PlayStation 5, as well as one game we're already familiar with: Fortnite.

However, if you looked closely, there were a few interesting teasers.

PS5 and RTX 3080 preorder kerfuffles suggest Winter is Coming

This week prospective buyers of the Sony PlayStation 5 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 3080 are having a rough time. NVIDIA proper has no stock for their own graphics card, and stock's gone low or gone at 3rd-party resellers aplenty. The Sony PlayStation 5 preorder situation is a far greater mess, as Sony announced one pre-order time/date, while retailers decided they'd just go ahead and drop all at once.

Final Fantasy XVI trailer hints at the end of a saga

Final Fantasy XVI trailer hints at the end of a saga

The Final Fantasy series is one of the very few JRPGs that have become a global hit for decades but the recent years haven't exactly been kind to it. The latest main title in the franchise was launched in 2016 after many delays though that pales in comparison to the delays of just the first installment of the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Now Square Enix is once again going against the odds with the first teaser of a new mainline Final Fantasy game that could mark the end of a series within a series.

PS5 production cut by 4 million due to chip production issues

The PlayStation 5's story has never been a smooth one, at least not compared to its rival, the Xbox Series X. Now finally nearing the end of the road before it officially launches, it seems that it still has a few kinks to iron out that will affect its market performance in the months to come. Although figures may still be better than the PS4's first days, Sony has reportedly been having some production issues that have forced it to cut down production targets from 15 million to just 11 million units.

Minecraft PS VR is finally happening this month

Minecraft PS VR is finally happening this month

When Microsoft acquired Minecraft creators Mojang, some might have presumed the company would be restricting the highly popular game to its own platform and other "friendly" platforms. Few probably predicted that Microsoft would actually expand Minecraft's reach not just to other platforms, including its PlayStation rival, but would also take the open-world sandbox games to places and use cases its original creators probably never imagined. That said, one platform remains absent from Minecraft's list but that will finally change this month when Minecraft lands on PlayStation VR.
