There’s been an air of over-confidence surrounding Sony lately. The company’s E3 2018 press conference was a far cry from its PS4 reveal, in which former Sony president Jack Trennon enthusiastically positioned the console as a consumer-friendly counter to the Xbox One. There were two lengthy musical interludes, few games, and a level of pretentiousness that suggested the company had all but climbed up into its own arse. Immediately following the Sony E3 show, Fortnite Switch players were greeted with the news that they couldn’t carry their Epic Games account over to the handheld console if they had first played the game on PS4. Sony’s refusal to allow cross-platform play effectively ensured that Epic accounts linked to the PS4 had become tainted. Microsoft and Nintendo seized this opportunity, launching a joint “Better Together” commercial for Minecraft, showcasing cross-play between the Xbox One and Switch. Meanwhile, Sony’s … [Read more...] about Why Sony is in Danger of Losing its Audience Before the PS5
Why ps4 is better than xbox
Metro Exodus is one of the most anticipated games to be released in 2019. It got delayed recently and will now release in the Q1 of 2019. But the delay does nothing but good for the game. Developers had extra time to polish PS4 Pro version. Huw Beynon of Deep Silver talked about the PS4 version of the game in details. Huw Beynon said: I think the PS4 Pro version is going to turn out great. The engine is highly scalable. So for the last game, with the same piece of tech, we got to run on Xbox 360 and PS3, but we also had the enhanced version for PS4 and Xbox One. High-end PC graphics cards are paramount. Its track record speaks for itself when you’re looking at performance. So rest assured, if you have a PS4 Pro It’s gonna look great. But not all is good news here, Metro Exodus will not come to Nintendo Switch as they are busy with other platforms. “We’re kind of busy on the console platforms right now.” It’s a dream for everyone who owns a … [Read more...] about Metro Exodus Looks Great On PS4 Pro, No Nintendo Switch Version
Last week, Xbox Live announced its schedule of Games With Gold for December, bringing to 48 the number of free games it offered in 2016. Were they any good? What would they cost otherwise? In short, what do the numbers say about the value of this Xbox Live Gold benefit? We’ll try to answer that question this year as we have the past three years. To that, however, we’ve added a few more questions: How old is the game? Did Microsoft publish it? What publisher did Games With Gold use the most? Did these appear earlier on PlayStation Plus? These questions may shed light on where these free games programs are headed, particularly as the previous console generation ages and the Xbox One’s backward compatibility program continues to pile up old titles. What about PlayStation Plus? Getting Started In all, there were 48 games in Xbox Live Games With Gold for 2017, with an average Metacritic score of 77.19 and a combined retail price (at the time of the offer) of $1,029.52 The … [Read more...] about Xbox Games With Gold gave out $1,029 worth of games in 2017.

Poor PlayStation Vita. It has been the whipping boy of critics and outraged gamers since day one, and with every sales figure update or release schedule revision, many are keen to pounce on the handheld and declare it ‘dead’. Sony’s refusal to release official sales figures only breeds paranoia, and its sparse gaming line-up strongly implies that developers may have given up hope too. Thing is, Vita isn’t dead. It’s just resting its eyes. It’s waiting for the PS4 to unlock so much of that potential locked away inside its hard and software. Make no mistake, PlayStation 4 can save Vita from failure. Without PS4, there’s little doubt that the nay-sayers are right--Vita will flop, thanks to its relatively high price, the stiff competition it faces, and a dwindling line-up of quality games. However, this winter could represent a significant boost for the handheld that, for all its faults, is still a cracking little piece of tech. Sony needs to … [Read more...] about Why PS4 can and must save PlayStation Vita
