Sony surprised by Bloodborne sales


The PS4's unexpected system seller
May 18
// Laura Kate Dale
Before Bloodborne was released on PS4 a few months ago, Sony had optimistic expectations for how the game would perform. Apparently, even going in with optimistic expectations for its performance, Sony were surprised by how w...

Like clockwork: Sony's E3 presser is evening of June 15


As it should be
May 15
// Brett Makedonski
This year's E3 will be a bit busier than usual, due to some press conferences we're not used to seeing. Bethesda, Square Enix, and a PC-centric show will all play a part in making the news schedule more hectic than it wo...

Sony is treating No Man's Sky as a first-party release


Sony's pouring resources into this one
May 15
// Laura Kate Dale
No Man's Sky is not strictly speaking a Sony-exclusive game, but you might be forgiven for thinking it is permanently exclusive considering how ferociously the company is marketing it: prominent E3 press conference space, fin...

May 15
// Jed Whitaker
The official PlayStation Twitter posted pictures of a Magma Red DualShock 4 controller for PlayStation 4 that will be available this summer in the US. Preorders are available now for those who want to ensure they receive one as soon as possible.  I remember having a multitude of different N64 controllers back in the day; man was I cool at the Mario Party parties I'd throw.

Ratchet & Clank isn't a series you hear talked about that often. It's a shame, because the last major game in the franchise was actually pretty good. Thankfully, next year you'll be seeing plenty of the duo, in the form o...

The Last of Us had pretty good facial animation tech, at least as far as I was concerned. Faces were detailed, emotions were nuanced and it was always clear what the actor behind the character had wanted to convey. From my pe...

This post explains the entire Mega Man Legends copyright situation

May 11 // Chris Carter
Oronamin C is a real beverage over in Japan, and is sold in the vending machines in the first Legends game. In addition, there are a few other copyrighted references. Now, here is the problem -- Sony apparently does not allow the modification of source code for a PSN classic. In other words, it needs to be the exact same release. So unless these issues can be solved by Capcom's legal team (or Sony drops the policy), a full-on PSOne Classic release for Legends 1 is not going to happen. Nintendo however, does allow the modification of code. If it was deemed a worth endeavor by both Capcom and Nintendo Mega Man 64 could feasibly be ported. In fact, the original code for 64 already has a few of these changes already. Other options suggested by Protodude include the release of the PSP version (untranslated), a PC port by Capcom, or a full remake -- all of which have a low chance of happening in my book. Whatever the case, I'd love to see it happen. There's plenty of hope for Legends 2, but maybe Capcom wants to deal with everything and release them both at the same time. For now, we wait.

Wow, it's complicated
For years now people have been clamoring for the release of Mega Man Legends 1 and 2 on the PSN (or the Nintendo 64 version on the eShop, for that matter), but Capcom hasn't budged. We're one step closer with The Mi...
