ZOMG Jim moar anti-Sony bias ZOMG


Former Destructoid reviews editor Jim Sterling has gone indie, and he needs your help. The dude has worked for over 8 years doing video games reviews here and on sites like Escapist, and now he's trying to build his own site...


Resident Evil 4 HD released last week, but I waited until the weekend to download it. Due to various problems I have with Microsoft Points and my silly desire to play Resident Evil games on their "traditional" home, I decided...


I once had a glorious dream that Sony's PSN "welcome back" package would allow us to choose between six different firmware updates. That dream, sadly, never came true, but Sony's generosity is still abundant, with update...


God damn it, ScrewAttack.  I love you guys.




PSP owners may be feeling sad that they've missed out on at least seventeen firmware updates since the PlayStation Network went down, but do not despair! Sony has confirmed that update 6.39 is coming soon, and you're all invi...


Sony has told publishers to expect the PlayStation Store on May 24. That's according to a memo sent to various companies, which of course found its way to the proles of the Internet.  As previously revealed, Sony plans t...


Sony CEO Howard Stringer has lashed out at those who criticized the way in which Sony handled the PSN outbreak, specifically the amount of time it took to notify consumers. His defensive statement displays disbelief that anyb...


Sony has released a brand new FAQ in order to better inform fans about the big PlayStation Network resurrection. Most of it is stuff we already know, but some fresh information has been released concerning the PlayStation Sto...


Due to the ludicrous volume of PlayStation Network users trying to reset their passwords at once, Sony has had to temporarily cease the big PSN rollout and suspended services for a bit.  "We’re currently experienci...


A few people asked for a video to sum up the whole PSN outage thing, and I thought I'd take it in a more productive direction that simply getting angry. I've proposed three very reasonable ideas (which Podtoid listeners can already guess) in order to make Sony look good in this whole thing. This is because I'm a very, very good person who is always looking out for the little guy.


Last weekend, Sony told consumers that the PlayStation Network should be back up and running within a week. As you may have noticed, a week's gone by, and you still can't play Warhawk. Sony has therefore made a new announceme...


PS3 Firmware 3.56 is reportedly causing HDD problems for a number users. Just like that one time. Oh, and that other time. One day, Sony might release a Firmware update that stops its Firmware updates from being shit.  T...


David Cage's arrogance is unparalleled, even in an industry that sports Denis Dyack. Seemingly drunk on the fawning of his own fans, the Quantic Dream director has claimed that Heavy Rain opened doors for more maturity i...


The BBFC has rated Killzone 3 for British gamers, and spilled a few beans for us in the process -- revealing that the PS3 sequel will boast over seventy minutes of cutscenes. Looks like you'll be doing plenty of watching as w...


Sony is terrible at keeping secrets. Killzone 3, Resistance 3, the PS3 Slim, the PSPgo, Sony has no end of cats to let out of its bag, and rare is the time we are ever surprised. The PSP2 looks set to continue this trend, wit...


Making fun of PlayStation Home at this point is like steadily kicking an autistic in the bollocks, but that hasn't stopped Microsoft from doing it anyway. Stephen McGill has written the poor man's Second Life off as a "nice c...


Yesterday, many websites reported that Sony had sold 4.1 million PlayStation Move units. Destructoid and a handful of others reported that Sony had only shipped that many units. A few commenters accused us of BIAS but the egg...


Super Meat Boy will eventually find its way to Xbox 360, Wii and PC, excluding as it will a PS3 release. Now, because you start stamping your feet and shouting "BIAS" while tears start to cloud your vision, make sure you dire...


According to Sony, "tons of cool stuff" is coming to its Second Life clone/virtual advertising world PlayStation Home. Among the expected features is the return of an old one -- voice chat! This comes on November 11 in Update...


28 Days Later and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West writer Alex Garland has confessed that he only bothered to play Heavenly Sword after meeting its developer, due to his being "f*cking sick" of the PS3. "There weren't any origin...


Sony has set a rather grim little precedent for itself, with the revelation that Move Support in High Velocity Bowling is available for "free" only to those who have subscribed to PlayStation Plus. Apparently spending upwards...


While Sony is attempting to convince the world that 3D gaming is what it wants, a study from the company's homeland indicates that a lot more convincing might need to be done. According to a poll, most Japanese consumers don'...


... And yet it appeals to no-one. Kinect Is For Everyone - Microsoft [Edge]


So, Nintendo murdered everyone at E3, not just with its rather terrifying selection of awesome games, but with its stunning 3DS demonstration. If you haven't seen the thing in action, let me confirm that it's pretty amazing s...


HERP DERP DERP LET'S SPEND ALL THE MONEY THAT HAS EVER BEEN PRINTED IN AMERICA SO WE CAN USE GAME JOURNALISTS AS UNWITTING ACCOMPLICES IN A RIDICULOUS MTV COMMERCIAL FOR OUR EYETOY! ALSO, CIRQUE DU SOLEIL! HERP DERP DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRP!


Ken Kutaragi became an industry laughing stock shortly after the announcement of the $599 PlayStation 3, mostly due to his arrogant and insulting justifications ("work more hours to buy one"). Although Kutaragi left Sony as s...


The PSPgo was an ill-advised, expensive, worthless waste of space. This is scientific, objective fact that can be proven in any court of law. But apparently it's alright, because it was just a test. In fact, even though the P...


One enterprising consumer pulled a slick move when he was able to use European law in order to get a partial refund for his PS3 from Amazon. Sony's decision to remove the OtherOS feature on the PlayStation 3 angered some cons...


Do you remember PlayStation Room? That social networking service for the PSP that looked like a mash-up between PlayStation Home and Bratz dolls? No? Really, you don't? We hardly blame you. Like so many things in this in...


The PSP has had a long history, one that hasn't always been entirely pretty. While the system has been quite successful in Japan and sold decently well enough in the West, it's still a machine with a lot of problems, and that...


With PlayStation Move gearing up for launch this year, Sony is pushing out the boat to try and make us forget that it's basically copying the Wii. The best way to do that, of course, is the imply that the Wii ruined motion co...


Dear Sony, I have just remembered that Tomba! exists. If you don't remember the game (and we could hardly blame you), it was a sidescrolling adventure starring a troll-like creature with pink hair and a hatred of evil pigs. A...


We usually post this on a Saturday, but after all the controversy we had this week regarding Heavy Rain and a Premonition of a Deadly nature, it didn't seem appropriate. Luckily, we had time after the weekend to cut a brand ...


Further cementing the PSPgo's status as a hideous and terrible mistake, the latest Japanese sales data has revealed that while the PSP-3000 and its cousins have topped the charts, the all-digital variant is slumming it at the...


Oh for f*ck's sake. It's like clockwork. A big PS3 exclusive comes along, and the developer pretends that it could only be possible on the PlayStation 3. Right on schedule, here's product manager Claire Backhouse, claiming th...


[Editor's Note: We're not just a (rad) news site -- we also publish opinions/editorials from our community & employees like this one, though be aware that it may not jive with the opinions of Destructoid as a whole, or ho...


The Guardian has put the big four gaming platforms through their paces, giving helpful tips to the British consumer who is looking for some electronic entertainment this Christmas. The game weighs the relative pros and cons o...


Following on from Time magazine's top ten games of the year, the Associated Press has chimed in with a list of its own. Unlike the eclectic and rather strange top ten of Time, it seems that AP has taken a walk on the safer si...


Contrary to our satirical article in which I said Final Fantasy XIII would be blatantly better on the Xbox 360, Square Enix has revealed that Blu-ray will lead to a superior PS3 version after all. The Xbox 360 version is goin...


Comparison attack! Everybody loves it when two versions of the same game are pitted against each other in yet another grueling battle of the console wars, but at least this time there's a valid reason for the contrast. There ...
