PlayStation go into this year’s E3 in a position of comfort. With the PS4 reportedly outselling the Xbox One by 3 to 1 it should come at no surprise but what Sony will Sony do to strengthen this position of dominance? The exclusive games have been on point and new hardware such as PSVR and the PS4 Pro have helped Sony to get a head start in these new areas of technology but how do they truly build on this and make sure Microsoft do not out shine them at this year’s E3?

PSVR launched approx. 6 months ago and even though there is still limited stock in most high-street outlets suggesting the hardware has been a roaring success, there are still question marks over whether the VR technology has truly revolutionized console gaming or whether the figures are simply masking a failing technology. There is limited support from the larger third parties with game releases for the VR few and far between. Does the PSVR inevitably share the same fate as the PlayStation EyeToy?

UPDATE 5th MAY 2017: Getting any updates on a new release date for Gang Beasts on PS4 is not too dissimilar to trying to get blood from a stone! In fact, I think getting blood from a stone may even be a painless experience in comparison. What little information Boneloaf have provided on Gang Beast for PS4 does not come across massively positive, however no official communication has been shared on the subject with the latest news coming in the form of a Twitter response:
Reading between the lines, the response would suggest a 2017 release is potentially not on the cards. This may be over dramatized but if this does end up being the case then it will be one of the most shambolic releases I have ever seen.
Boneloaf may not have confirmed anything regarding the PS4 release but they have confirmed they will not be developing an Xbox One version and are investigating the possibility of a Switch port. Who knows, you may be able to play Gang Beasts on your Switch before it releases on PS4 at this rate! It may be time to purchase a Switch.
Release Date: 13th October
VR in gaming is not a new thing but Sony are definitely market leaders when it comes to bringing this technology to the console market. Much has been made about PS VR over the past few months and much of the feedback has been nothing but positive. It is very easy to highlight that the hardware is not as powerful as the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift but PS VR does a great job of bringing this technology to the living rooms of the masses at a slightly more affordable price. It is surprising then that there is not more marketing around Playstation’s first venture into VR, especially considering there was a heck of a lot more marketing happening after the announcement. With many places overwhelmed with pre-order, it appears that Sony haven’t needed to market PS VR as it appears to be selling itself. Continue reading “Playstation VR: What To Expect”
Sony have finally announced their rival product to Mircosoft’s Project Scorpio and it has been portrayed as the pinnacle of console gaming providing players the opportunity to take advantage of 4K gaming from the comfort of their living room. It has been dubbed as a true achievement as no other console has ever achieved such a groundbreaking feat on console. What every gamer wants to know is does this significant improvement in graphics warrant a £349 purchase on top of the already original, robust PS4 console?
