PlayStation Trophies are changing today: Here’s what to expect

PlayStation Trophies have been around since the days of the PlayStation 3, and for the most part, they've remained unchanged all this time. That's changing later today, as Sony will be rolling out some update to the trophy system ahead of next month's launch of the PlayStation 5. The changes aren't huge by any means, as they mostly focus on the Trophy levelling system.

Here’s when you can play Ghost of Tsushima’s Legends update

This new PlayStation 5 controller reveal confirms a button surprise

This new PlayStation 5 controller reveal confirms a button surprise

The PlayStation 5 is nearly here, and when it arrives, Japanese players are going to have to contend with a change that seems simple on the surface but could be massive in reality. Apparently, Sony is changing the function of some of the PlayStation 5's controller buttons in Japan, swapping the functionality of the "X" and "O" buttons. That, as you might imagine, is going to be frustrating for Japanese players who are already used to the current functionality of the DualShock 4 and the controllers that came before it.

PS5 hands-on videos reveal some hardware details

PS5 hands-on videos reveal some hardware details

The Sony PlayStation 5 is, or should be, on track for a November 14 release, despite an almost comical but disastrous pre-order phase last month. Despite starting pre-orders, Sony has yet to actually reveal everything buyers need to know about the next-gen console, still leaving out a few parts to the imagination. A few videos and photos coming from Japan, however, thankfully put some of those things into perspective but still leaves some crucial details wrapped in mystery.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remaster gives Peter Parker a facelift

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remaster gives Peter Parker a facelift

Next-gen consoles always boast of more powerful hardware capable of driving higher-fidelity graphics. More often than not, launch titles try to flaunt those capabilities with new visual effects that would not have been possible on older consoles. Although not exactly a launch title, Spider-Man: Remaster is one prime example of that demonstration but Sony did more than up the graphics ante. It also changed Peter Parker himself.

PlayStation Plus games for October fit the Halloween theme

It's very nearly October, and that means we're about to see a refresh of the free games offered through PlayStation Plus. Sony saved this month's reveal for the very last minute - while it usually reveals new PlayStation Plus games a few days before the end of the month, it's only now revealing October's games on the day before the new month begins. In any case, one of the free PS Plus games for October definitely fits the Halloween theme, and fans of vampires in particular will want to check it out.

Microsoft dropped $7.5 billion to hook you on a $10 Xbox Game Pass subscription

Earlier this week, Microsoft dropped quite possibly the biggest gaming bombshell of all time, announcing that it had entered into an agreement to purchase ZeniMax Media and all of its subsidiaries for $7.5 billion. It’s Microsoft’s biggest gaming purchase ever and it's tied with GitHub as the company's third-biggest acquisition period, behind only LinkedIn and Skype. It made this monumental purchase just to get you to sign up for a $10 per month subscription, too.

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.

Xperia Play 2 prototype makes you wish Sony never gave up

Xperia Play 2 prototype makes you wish Sony never gave up

Perhaps even more than Samsung, Sony has a handful of businesses it could tap to improve its smartphones. It had display, imaging, entertainment, and gaming chops but, for one reason or another, including infighting and sibling rivalry, it never fully exploited those avenues. Once upon a time, however, it did dare with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. That popular "PlayStation Phone" was left without an heir but an alleged prototype has now popped up to show Android and Sony fans what could have been.
