Jimmy Fallon was the first person since Sony's PlayStation event earlier this week to publicly take one of the console's games for a spin.
Sony last night brought the PlayStation 4 to "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," allowing the host to briefly play Killzone: Shadow Fall. His time on the new PlayStation 4 controller -- which was detailed ad nauseam -- was short-lived. One of Fallon's guests also had the chance to play Killzone, but that, too, was a quick experience.
Interestingly, the person from the Killzone team who was playing the title had no … Read more
The PlayStation 4 is Sony's last great hope in keeping control of the gaming industry. It's also the best chance at turning the PlayStation Vita into a more relevant piece of gaming hardware.
At last night's PlayStation 4 event in New York, many hew tidbits of hardware magic were discussed, and a good handful of them involved the Vita: as a remote-play device and additional controller like the Wii U's GamePad, and maybe even as a functional second screen. It's encouraging, but not surprising. I bet it would happen long before last night's event … Read more
Taiwanese animator Next Media Animation is taking yesterday's Sony PlayStation 4 event to task.
Sony announced its next-generation video game console at a press event in New York, but the PS4 itself was a no-show.

The animation group created a video mocking the PS4 at yesterday's press event. Sony treated members of the press to experience what using the next-generation console might feel like with live demonstrations, but did … Read more
Sony's portable PlayStation Vita will not get a price cut in the U.S., despite hopes for such a move.
Speaking to reporters today, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida said that no price drop is coming for the Vita in the U.S., according to Polygon, which was in attendance at that discussion. Yoshida reportedly told those at the interview that Sony's recently announced decision to cut the price of the Vita in Japan had nothing to do with sales and everything to do with exchange rates.

As Sony explained the hardware and software in the upcoming PlayStation 4 yesterday, two very important input devices -- the DualShock 4 controller and PlayStation 4 Eye camera -- also debuted. But Sony wasn't completely up front about how it will all work.
One of the key features of its forthcoming PlayStation 4 game console Sony played up today was its ability to stream games across a network of devices. As part of the effort, Sony is readying a companion app called PlayStation App that will allow iOS and Android devices to become second screens for players.
Sony says the app could allow players to download companion maps on their mobile device while playing an adventure game on their console. Players could also use the app to remotely watch other players' game play and purchase games while on the go that would be … Read more
Sony breathed new life into its PlayStation Vita portable alongside the introduction of the PlayStation 4 today.
The gist of the news: The Vita can be used as a full screen and controller for your PS4, similar to what Nintendo's done with the Wii U. The idea is that you can continue to play a game on the PS4 through your Vita, even if someone needs to use the TV for something else. The only catch for now is that the two devices need to be on the same Wi-Fi network.
That should make the handheld gaming device more … Read more
