Germany's PS4 launch was dangerous chaos

Clearly PS4 lust has been germinating in the country for some time, because Germans went crazy for the PS4 launch last week. It's like store owners were poking them with electric cattle prods outside the gates as if they wer...

Review: Super Motherload photo
Review: Super Motherload
by Caitlin Cooke

Super Motherload was supposed to be my “tester” experience -- the first game that I booted up on my PlayStation 4 to get a feel for the system. I planned to take a few minutes to acquaint myself with the controller and then return to the home screen to browse the other titles I purchased.

Five hours later, I sat there drooling as I descended further into Mars, my stomach hungry but my mind without a care. My task was simple: drill for precious minerals and process them at the surface base.

Oh, if only it were that simple.

It's always about the games when it comes to the console, and with the release of the new systems, it's easy to take for granted how much effort goes into the making of the titles. For many, the games available at launch can ...

Everything you need to know about the PlayStation 4 photo
Everything you need to know about the PlayStation 4
by Steven Hansen

We're a week and a half away from the PlayStation 4's November 15 North American release. Will it be the leading console this generation? Will people buy it at launch and then sell it in six months because people always do that and I still don't know why? Will it be able to distract us from ever looming ennui, wresting us into a fervor of consumption?

This guide will tell you, I bet. Like all good churches, I have all the answers.

Don't forget to check our comprehensive Xbox One guide, too, to compare the incoming hardware and make a more informed decision on which you should pick up, if any.
