  1. Petition Demands Microsoft Reinstate Restrictive Xbox One Policies

    The people have spoken. Now can they be quiet again?

    Do you remember the olden days, when the Xbox One was going to restrict used game sales and require online check-ins? Are you annoyed that now that Microsoft conceded and went back on those policies, you have nothing to complain about on the Internet? Or did you just get used to the idea that Microsoft's picture of the future was a boot stamping on a human face every 24 hours? Never fear, someone on the Internet wants to return to the bold future of a few weeks ago. Over 2000 people have already signed a petition to Microsoft asking the company to return to its original, consumer-unfriendly plan.

  2. Sony Releases Pointless Blurry Preview of PS4, So Let’s Pretend To Be Pumped About It!

    Tomorrow is Microsoft's big Xbox event, so to try and steal their thunder Sony released a sneak peek of the PS4 hardware. It's a blurry wide shot of the box cut, with quick flashes of close ups. If they showed the box itself we'd be excited. Instead we're just disappointed -- again. Sony, if you want to steal someone's thunder by showing your junk -- you need to show your junk. Let's break down this failure frame by frame.

  3. Don’t Do That: Man Stabs Girlfriend and Her Father in Argument Over PlayStation

    Gamers are a passionate group of people, but that's no excuse to go stabbing anybody. We guess nobody told Jose O. Cruz of Allentown Pennsylvania that though. He was arrested yesterday afternoon for stabbing his girlfriend and her father during an argument over a PlayStation.

  4. Way of the Dogg Video Game Stars Snoop Dogg the Kung Fu Master

    Because recent news stories haven't been crazy enough -- or maybe because we just needed that extra push to cross the point of no return -- here's one that makes sense only if you've watched like thirty Harlem Shake videos back to back. Snoop Dogg -- or the Lion formerly known as Dogg -- is making a video game called Way of the Dogg for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation. In it, you will learn to fight at his temple. I mean, duh.

  5. This Taiwanese Animation of Sony’s PlayStation 4 Event’s Better Than Sony’s PlayStation 4 Event

    Sony didn't give us a look at what the PlayStation 4 actually looks like during their event last night, but it's safe to assume it is not a human-sized robot that shoots lasers from its eyes. That didn't stop the goodly folks at Next Media Animation from speculating as such. Their animated version of the event is borderline insane, and a lot more fun to watch than the event itself.

  6. Here’s The New PlayStation 4…Controller

    Thank You?

    So, Sony had their huge PlayStation 4 event yesterday (watch the whole thing at Geekosystem). There was just one problem - nobody thought to bring a PlayStation 4. Ok, that probably wasn't the case but really, guys? (And yes, we literally do mean GUYS.) We've got a look from a different angle after the jump.

  7. Watch Sony’s PlayStation 4 Live Stream Right Here

    It's finally happening! The time has come! Today is Rex Manning Day! At 6pm EST, Sony PlayStation will officially start their event. If you've been following along, the entire world -- including us -- seems to think that the video game giant will reveal their latest home console, the PlayStation 4. Given the amount of hype that's been built, it'd be foolish to do anything else.

  8. China Could Lift Its 13-Year Game Console Ban

    Good news for Chinese gamers! China is thinking about lifting its ban on game consoles. The news is just speculation right now, and it's based on the Playstation 3 receiving a quality certification from the Chinese government, but even that speculation has been enough to bump up stock prices for Sony and Nintendo, both of which are champing at the bit to enter the Chinese market. Obviously, a lifting of the ban would help those companies greatly. It might also destroy the mental and physical development of Chinese children, since that's what the ban was trying to protect.

  9. PlayStation 4 May Drop the DualShock Controller Design

    They say when something isn't broken, don't fix it, and Sony's DualShock controllers -- first released in 1997 for the original PlayStation system -- is a prime example of this timeless maxim. Applauded for its intuitive design and general comfort, Sony has been sticking with virtually the same controller design for the last 16 years, experiencing only minor tweaks that never diluted what made it so popular with the gaming community. With the PlayStation 3 gradually fading into the background to make room for its successor, it has been reported that Sony will be eschewing the tried-and-true DualShock route in favor of a new controller utilizing touch screens and other features for the fourth installment of their best-selling line of game consoles.

  10. Ouch: Sony’s Bond Rating Now One Step Above Junk Bonds

    How the mighty have fallen. Credit rating agency Moody's has dropped their rating on long-term bonds issued by Sony to it's lowest investment grade, marking them just one notch above junk bonds. For the couple of you that might not be investment bankers out there, this means that the agency believes there is a very, very good chance that the Japanese tech giant is in real trouble and may not be able to pay off its long-term debt.
