  1. Sony Got You Some Gifts to Apologize for PlayStation Network’s Holiday Outage

    And your subsequent holiday outrage.

    Sony's PlayStation Network—along with Microsoft's Xbox Live—was hit with outages and spotty service on Christmas, and for a few days after, due to DDoS attacks from a group called the Lizard Squad. Your holidays may have been ruined by a console with crippled capabilities, but Sony's got some belated gifts to make it up to you. Unfortunately, those gifts do not include five extra days of vacation to make use of them.

    It's a metafir.

  3. Michelle Forbes Is Looking Like A BAMF As Retro Girl In Powers

    A+ 10/10 would red leather again

    Somehow we keep forgetting that Powers, the show based on Brian Michael Bendis's well-loved comics, is in the works - maybe because it's going to be a PlayStation Network exclusive. But here to remind us is Michelle Forbes, looking hella rad in full uniform as Retro Girl.

  6. You Can Use Your Real Name on the PlayStation 4 at Launch, While Xbox One Owners Wait

    You won't have to, but you can.

    If you want to use your real name when playing online instead of a silly gamertag, you'll be getting your chance with the next generation of consoles.

  7. Papo & Yo Launch Trailer is Not Like Other Trailers

    Sony, and by extension the PlayStation 3, has a history of supporting odds and ends via the PlayStation Network. After all, there aren't many games like Flower or Journey on other competing services. That isn't to say Sony is the only one taking chances, but when they do, they're interesting chances to say the least. The fostering of unique and special video games is likely one of the only reasons we're seeing Papo & Yo, a game about a child dealing which his alcoholic father, hit the digital shelves at all. Check out the launch trailer above to see just how different video games can truly be.

  8. The Embargo on Journey Lifted, Everyone Loves It

    It pains me to be writing this post in such a way, but way back when, I didn't make it into the Journey beta. This time around, I didn't receive any sort of review copy or early release. So, while my likely fangasmic review will be coming sometime shortly after the official release date of March 13 and no matter how broke I am, I will have $14.99, that isn't now, so we'll have to check in on the rest of the Internet. They love it, if you're wondering. Just how much, after the break.

  9. The Entire PlayStation Network (PSN) Rebranding as Sony Entertainment Network (SEN)

    Move over, venerable PlayStation Network, for Sony doesn't dig the sound of you anymore, and you shall forever be known as the Sony Entertainment Network (until Sony doesn't like the sound of that and changes it to something else). Starting tomorrow, February 7, all PSN accounts will be rebranded as SEN accounts. This shouldn't affect users too much, other than having to associate everything they thought they once knew with the SEN. Sony assures its users that this change is only a name change, and users' account information will stay the same.

  10. Sony Gets Sued Over PlayStation Network's No-Sue Clause

    So remember back, after the big Sony hacking fiasco, when Sony pushed a PlayStation Network update that required all users to surrender their right to sue Sony? Well now Sony is getting sued over it. There were a lot of questions about whether the move to include the clause was actually legal, and now we're set to find out. Sony did provide a way to opt-out of the clause, but it was hard to find and even harder to excute; you had to send them a letter snail-mail, which as we all know, is an activity bordering on impossible. Seriously though, it's kind of a pain and that was a pretty sketchy move on Sony's part.
