Tim Schafer Dreams Of An Open-World Grim Fandango Sequel

I haven't been the biggest fan of the PlayStation Vita's remote play function. It sounds great in theory—use your Vita to stream games from your PS4, play games in bed or on the go! But it never works quite like I want it to. » 9/26/14 4:00pm 9/26/14 4:00pm

PlayStation Now, Sony's streaming/renting service for games (well, some games), is moving into open beta. A word on prices: they're kinda ridiculous, though Sony says " you will start seeing reduced pricing on some 4-hour rentals" in "a few weeks". » 7/30/14 9:52pm 7/30/14 9:52pm

Why is Amazon France taking pre-orders for a PS4/Vita bundle? Why does that mock-up image look so convincing? Did a retailer just accidentally leak one of Sony's E3 announcements? » 6/04/14 3:30pm 6/04/14 3:30pm
