Here’s the game I expect to see bundled with the PS5

Sony has begun drawing the curtain back next-generation PlayStation console, in an agonizingly slow manner. Today it revealed some details about the hardware we’ll be seeing when the console launches holiday 2020 — but not, frustratingly, what kinds of games we can expect to see. I suspect the specific titles will have to wait until next year’s E3 or perhaps a State of Play reveal of the actual console. But I think I might have a hunch what one of those launch titles will be. I noticed, while re...

Developers Accuse Sony of 'Playing Favorites' With PS4's Cross-Platform Support

After years of fighting the idea, Sony announced last September it is finally bringing "cross-platform gameplay, progression, and commerce" to the PlayStation Network, with Fortnite as the first example.

Several major third-party developers have accused the company of standing in the way of letting the PS4 versions of their games play nicely with other platforms. ArsTechnica re...

A Love Letter to Video Games

As a relatively new father, I’m trying to indulge my inner optimist more often, if only to model the kind of joyful life untainted by default cynicism I wish for my son. The community of games is too commonly sunk by the urge, by some, to drag others into their own self-loathing mire. I’ve been […]

E3 slouches towards irrelevance again as Sony announces it’s skipping the show

I like E3 . I really do. But it’s also monumentally dumb: game companies spending millions to show off essentially faked content to an increasingly jaded audience. And it’s increasingly out of step with how the gaming industry works. So it should come as no surprise that Sony will be skipping the show more or less altogether this year, joining Nintendo in taking a step back from spectacle. Sony has been a part of CES for 20 years and this will be the first one it’s ever missed. I’ve gone to...
