Kingdom Hearts 3 For The Switch Not Being Considered Yet

Tyler Lee July 16, 2017

Gamers are probably pretty psyched that Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced earlier this year, and with a new trailer debuting that shows off the Toy Story world, things are definitely getting pretty exciting. The game is currently scheduled to be released on the PS4 and Xbox One come 2018, but what about other platforms like the Nintendo Switch?

Unfortunately for Switch gamers hoping to get their hands on the game, you might be in for a wait, or you might not even see it at all. Speaking to IGN at the D23 conference, Kingdom Hearts 3’s director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that they aren’t even considering bringing the game onto the Switch, at least not until the version for the PS4 and Xbox One has been released.

According to Nomura, “The Nintendo Switch is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware, but if we lightly say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll be on the Nintendo Switch,’ I’m sure people will come back and say, ‘But what about the PS4 and Xbox One? We want them out first. Don’t focus on other platforms.’ So for now, we want to focus on what platforms we’ve already announced we’re going to be releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”

While Nomura isn’t closing the door on the possibility of it launching on the Switch, it seems that like Switch gamers will have to wait without any confirmation that the game will eventually be launched for the console.

Gran Turismo Sport Set For 18th October Release

Tyler Lee July 14, 2017

Despite having been announced a while ago, Sony’s Gran Turismo Sport release was delayed. The game was originally meant to be released last year in 2016, but its developers felt that they needed more time to polish up the game. It was later rescheduled for a fall 2017 release, and now it looks like we have a date to look forward to.

It has been confirmed that Gran Turismo Sport will now be released on the 18th of October later this year. Presumably and hopefully this is the last delay that we can expect from the game, so gamers who love racing games and the Gran Turismo franchise can look forward to its release in the coming months.

The game was originally announced last year, but it seems that the gameplay that made its debut with the announcement did not seem to sit well with many, which was one of the reasons why Polyphony Digital decided to push back its release date. The game’s latest trailer does give us a glimpse at the various improvements that have been made, and boy does it look impressive.

So if you’re a PS4 gamer looking forward to the game, you’ll want to mark the date down on your calendar. In the meantime you can check out the trailer above to see a bit more of the game.

Analyst Predicts PlayStation 5 Will Be Launched In 2019

Tyler Lee July 13, 2017

Sony’s PS4 Pro was only recently launched, but it seems that the talk about the PlayStation 5 has already begun. Speaking to GamingBolt, analyst Michael Pachter has suggested that the PS5 could be launched as soon as 2019, and that the console will be a “half step” upgrade, similar to how the PS4 Pro was considered a “half step” over the PS4.

According to Pachter, “My expectation that is that it’s not coming out in 2018. That [it will be] 2019 or 2020 but probably 2019. Sony is probably timing it better because they are going to bring out a 4K-capable device when the 4K TV market reaches 50% in the USA and 35% in the rest of the world. I think Sony has probably got the next console cycle nailed down already. I think they already know what they got to do.”

Pachter’s estimate is different from an earlier report in which another analyst, Damian Thong of Macquarie Capital Securities offered his own estimation that the PS5 could be launched in 2018, which is next year. Next year would seem a bit hasty, but then again the Xbox One X is supposedly considerably more powerful than the PS4 Pro.

For Sony to allow Microsoft to have a year’s lead on them doesn’t seem to make sense, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime does 2019 still feel a bit too soon for you in terms of upgrades?

Some PS4 Gamers Unable To Appear Online After 4.72 Update

Tyler Lee July 12, 2017

Updates are usually meant to fix things and improve on things, but in some cases sometimes things go wrong. In the case of Sony’s PS4, the latest update to version 4.72 has left some players unable to appear online, as evidenced in various internet forums such as NeoGAF and Reddit (via PlayStation Lifestyle).

One user writes, “When I last slept my PS4 I was appearing offline, now no matter what I change my status to, Online or Appear Offline, I remain to appear logged off. Restart, turn off and back on, nothing changed it. I just turned the PS4 on and my online status is checked as Online but my profile still has my appearing offline. I click Appear Offline and it goes to the ‘Please wait…’ screen and comes back and Online is still checked. Yet, like I said, I’m appearing offline still.”

This isn’t just about appearing online to friends, but in some cases it even affects gameplay as some gamers have been unable to play their games as a result of this issue. There have been some workarounds offered, such as a full system restart, but whether or not these methods work for you remains to be seen as users are reporting mixed results.

Sony seems to be aware of this issue and are sending DMs to users on Twitter who are inquiring about it, so if you are experiencing this issue for yourself, perhaps you’ll want to reach out to the Ask PlayStation Twitter account for some help.

Please check your DMs for further assistance.

2018 PS4 Exclusives Due In First Half Of Next Year

Adnan Farooqui June 19, 2017


Sony fans wouldn’t have liked that the company didn’t release provide confirmed release dates for the 2018 PS4 exclusives that it unveiled at the E3 2017 gaming expo in Los Angeles earlier this month. On the other hand, Microsoft was forthcoming with the release dates for many of the exclusive titles for the Xbox One. Sony merely said that the new games would be out next year, but we now know that at least these 2018 PS4 exclusives will be released in the first half of next year.

Some of the 2018 PS4 exclusives detailed at E3 2017 include Spider-Man, God of War, Days Gone, and Detroit: Become Human. Sony merely said that these titles would be out next year without confirming whether they will be available in the first quarter or later in the holiday season.

The president of Sony Interactive Entertainment America Shawn Layden has provided some clarity on the matter. He confirmed in an interview with The Telegraph that the 2018 PS4 exclusives like Spider-Man, God of War, and Detroit: Become Human are going to be released in the first half of next year.

“The stuff coming in 2018, all of that is coming in the first half of the year,” he told the scribe. We can expect Sony to provide detailed release the pricing information for these titles towards the end of this year when these titles will merely be a few months from release.

Naughty Dog Explains Why ‘The Last Of Us 2’ Wasn’t At E3

Tyler Lee June 14, 2017

As expected during E3 2017, there were plenty of games that were revealed during the event, but if there was one title that was conspicuously missing, it was Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us 2. The game was officially announced towards the end of 2016, which meant that E3 would have been a perfect venue for the developers to share some updates and show what they’ve got so far.

Obviously that did not happen, and Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann has since tweeted out an explanation. According to Druckmann’s tweet, basically it sounds like maybe the studio wasn’t quite ready to show what they’ve got. His tweet reads, “Believe me, we’re super excited to show you more of Ellie and Joel’s 2nd journey, but right now it’s Chloe and Nadine’s time to shine.”

Believe me, we’re super excited to show you more of Ellie and Joel’s 2nd journey, but right now it’s Chloe and Nadine’s time to shine.

— Neil Druckmann (@Neil_Druckmann) June 13, 2017

It is possible that maybe the game is still in the early stages of development to the point where they might not have anything new beyond what we’ve seen so far. However not all is lost because there are still events like Gamescom and the PlayStation Experience event where Naughty Dog could unveil the goodies.

There is still no release date set for The Last of Us 2, although it does feel like maybe it might be skipping 2017. Details are also scarce, but the initial launch trailer did reveal that the game would be focusing pretty heavily on Ellie, with some speculating that maybe Joel could be dead and that she is talking to a ghost/memory, either way we’ll just have to wait and see how this pans out.

Sony Explains Why They’re Not Allowing For Cross-Platform Minecraft

Tyler Lee June 14, 2017

As you might heard, some rather big news came out of E3 in the form of Minecraft where Microsoft announced that they would be making the game cross-platform compatible. This means that gamers across multiple platforms would be able to play the game together, whether they be on mobile, the Nintendo Switch, or the Xbox One.

Missing from that list was Sony who had apparently refused to support the feature, a decision that we’re sure many are wondering about. For those who are curious, Sony has since offered up an explanation in an interview with Eurogamer. According to Sony’s PlayStation global sales and marketing head Jim Ryan, it seems that this boils down to “responsibility”.

Ryan was quoted as saying, “We’ve got to be mindful of our responsibility to our install base. Minecraft – the demographic playing that, you know as well as I do, it’s all ages but it’s also very young. We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe. Exposing what in many cases are children to external influences we have no ability to manage or look after, it’s something we have to think about very carefully.”

When it was pointed out that even Nintendo had allowed for this, why shouldn’t Sony, Ryan replied with, “Yeah, that’s true. Everybody has to take their own decisions. We’ll do that. Like I say, we have no philosophical stance against cross-play at all.” Either way it seems that Sony’s decision is pretty firm at the moment, so we guess PS4 gamers don’t really have a choice but to be left out for now.

PS4 Sales Have Hit 60.4 Million Worldwide

Tyler Lee June 13, 2017

As far as the current-gen consoles are concerned, it seems that Sony’s PS4 is leading the pack as during E3 2017, Sony announced that they have managed to sell 60.4 million units of the PS4 to customers worldwide to date. This is double the amount from when Sony announced their sales back in November 2015 where they had sold 30 million units.

We’re not sure where Microsoft is standing at this point because the company has never really published its sales figures, although in recent times we have been seeing how the Xbox One has managed to outsell the PS4 in certain markets, so that is pretty optimistic. There are some who believe that Microsoft’s recently announced Xbox One X could help boost Xbox sales ahead of the PS4.

However the Xbox One X is priced rather dear at $499 which could make it harder to adopt than the PS4 Pro which is slightly cheaper, but perhaps the raw power in the Xbox One X could make it more justifiable. As for Nintendo, the Switch has managed to sell over 2 million units to date which still puts it pretty far behind the competition, so it remains to be seen if it will be able to play catchup.

In the meantime analysts have predicted that Sony could sell as many as 69 million PS4 units by 2019, and at 60.4 million units in 2017, it sure looks like Sony is on track to hitting that mark.
