The next-generation console bar has been set... at least as it pertains to opening day sales, anyway.

The PlayStation 3 is no slouch, even today, and it's one incredible media machine... Read more...
Crime might not pay -- but video games about crime certainly do, particularly when they're the follow-up to one of the biggest franchises in gaming.

Sony's PlayStation 4 is scheduled to land in the United States on 11/15 for $399. But, believe it or not, there's still a big market out there for the PlayStation 3, and Sony realizes it still has a few months to milk its existing console before the new one comes to town. That's the only logical reason we can muster for the emergence of this... Read more...
Sony's handheld sales haven't exactly been mind-blowing, but then again, the handheld game in general has been massively disrupted by the advent of iOS and Android gaming.

Long before Microsoft announced its Xbox One and Sony, its PlayStation 4, many speculated as to whether or not this upcoming generation of consoles would be the last. That proposed fate had a lot to do with the fact that it's not as profitable a business as console vendors would like it to be, especially when the... Read more...
It doesn't make the issue any easier to swallow if you hastily updated your PlayStation 3 console to the latest software a few days back, but Sony has just issued a notice informing its customers that a fix is en route.

Still on the hunt for a PlayStation 4 pre-order that's not already "sold out?" Amazon has you covered.

Sony shared more details on the PS4 today, including CPU specs, controller design decisions, and advanced information on the platform's API.

The PS4 has two four-core Jaguar blocks.... Read more...
One of the interesting facts to come out of Sony's PS4 announcement is that the new console is, for all intents and purposes, a PC. This isn't the first time a major manufacturer has launched a console based on commodity PC hardware -- Microsoft's original Xbox was a Pentium 3 with an onboard GeForce 2 GPU -- but it's a definite first for...

It's not often that a console company sticks with a controller design for three straight generations, but sure enough, the PlayStation controller that ships with the PS3 is largely the same as the original that shipped with the first PlayStation so many years ago.

Another print publication bites the dust. This time it's PlayStation: The Official Magazine that's closing its doors, ending what had been a 15-year run with the upcoming Holiday issue.
