Would You Play A Breaking Bad Game? Sony's New Trademark Thinks So

The show may have come to an end, but the Breaking Bad train continues to steam ahead for AMC. There are many ways the franchise could manifest itself beyond TV series and it looks like Sony might be exploring one of the more exciting options: a video game.


Virtual Reality's Movement Problem: It Isn't Nausea

Warren Spector says virtual reality will be a fad, “at best a minor part of gaming’s future”. Far be it from me to question the director of Deus Ex on, well, anything. But I’m not sure it matters whether VR is a fad. Motion controls were a fad, yet that fad drove the sales of 100 million Wii consoles.


The 1TB PlayStation 4 Is Now Official

Well, it’s now totally official. Sony is rolling out a 1TB PlayStation 4 that it’s calling the “Ultimate Player 1TB Edition.” More like ultimate storage, am I right?


Keeping The Final Fantasy VII Remake And Shenmue III Secret

Adam Boyes, head of third-party developer relations at PlayStation, told me at E3 that he’s known about Square’s Final Fantasy VII remake for a year. It was a fun secret to keep.


Project Morpheus Made Me Cry - It's Not What You Think

At Sony’s E3 2015 showcase, I had a chance to test out Project Morpheus, Sony’s virtual reality headset peripheral for the PlayStation 4. Virtual reality has been a dominant presence at E3 this year and I was keen to give Morpheus a test ride. Unfortunately, my eyes did not agree with me.


The PlayStation Vita Is Forgotten, But Not Gone

The PlayStation Vita is a handheld video game device manufactured by Sony Corporation. It was first released in Japan in December 2011. In 2015, some new games will be released for it.


Sony's VR Headset Turned Me Into A Flying Horse

The future is horse. Horse is future. You sit on a bicycle with a virtual reality headset and you think, “OK, maybe they’re going to put me in the Olympics or on a paper route.” You don’t think, “I’m about to turn into a four-legged animal and also sprout wings.” At least I didn’t.


What We Know About Shenmue III So Far

This year’s E3 seems to be all about making fans’ dreams come true. Released in 1999, the original Shenmue was the originator for both the open world game genre and the Quick-Time Event, or QTE. Originally conceived as a massive, 11 chapter series, the series only managed to release up to its sixth chapter in 2001 with Shenmue II before the project was halted.


Final Fantasy VII Scenes That Would Look Crazy In The Remake

The announcement trailer of Final Fantasy VII‘s remake showed a slightly darker and more realistic world compared to the 1997 game. And with an aesthetic like that it’s almost impossible to imagine how some of the crazier parts of the original game would look.


Sony Is Helping Make Shenmue III

There’s something curious about Shenmue III on Kickstarter: it’s only asking for $US2 million. It took $US47 million to build the original game. What’s the deal? As it turns out, Sony’s partnering with its development.
