Relive the history of the PlayStation 4 with Did You know Gaming

Did You Know Gaming takes a crack at the PlayStation 4, mostly filled with info you probably already knew, but is worth the refresher all the same. As someone who picked up a PS4 at launch it was interesting to feel all of these memories ru...   read

Supermassive says it isn't doing Until Dawn 2 'at the moment'

Supermassive Games is into the idea of another Until Dawn, and I am too. It's easy to imagine how the formula could be applied to a different setting, story, and characters to form a horror anthology series. But I've got to cut that daydrea...   read

Kojima has some cryptic hints for Death Stranding

The more I hear about Kojima Productions' Death Stranding, the less I feel like I have a handle on it. That's surely by design. Speaking to Wired, game director Hideo Kojima fanned the flames of intrigue. "What people are playing today in o...   read

Wow, the Xbox One S is bigger than I expected

As we wound down from E3 last year, the view count for the Final Fantasy VII trailer on the PlayStation YouTube channel surprised me and so I set out to take a casual glance at PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo's official channels to see wha...   read

Sony says Neo won't shorten PS4 lifecycle

Lots of folks are upset about incoming new hardware from Microsoft and Sony (and maybe even the Nintendo NX, to some extent) because it somehow invalidates their earlier purchases. Me, I feel like the more powerful consoles will be a stopga...   read

Sony loses another legal battle, this time over PS3 Linux dispute

I'm pretty certain that the PS3 was my least favorite PlayStation generation. Like any console cycle it had a lot of classics, sure, but it didn't measure up to the PS2, and I'm already enjoying my PS4 a bit more. I might need to revisit th...   read

Kojima says Death Stranding trailer is 'representative' of the game

Hideo Kojima's "I'm back" has usurped Poltergeist's "they're here" in my mind as far as ominous announcements of presence so it's safe to say that his new PC/PS4 game Death Stranding is eating through most of the meager teraflops in my brai...   read
