PS4 Reaches 6.5 Million ‘Shares’ Since The Console’s Release

PS4 Reaches 6.5 Million Shares Since The Consoles Release

One button I honestly didn’t think I’d get much use out of when I was first considering purchasing the PlayStation 4 was the DualShock 4’s “Share” button, which sits to the left of the controller’s touchpad. Now that I’ve played a couple of games on the PlayStation 4, I can tell you there’s nothing more I like to do than share some moments from my gaming sessions, and it looks like I’m not alone in this feeling, according to Sony.

    PS4 Prank Takes A Wrong Turn, Prankster Has The Tables Turned On Him

    With the Sony PlayStation 4 being high in demand right now, tensions are understandably running pretty high and we suppose a great way to prank your friends is to trick them into thinking that you’re about to smash their brand new PS4 console with a hammer in a game of roulette! Well this is pretty much what they attempted to do in a New Zealand television show which is hosted by comedians Jono and Ben. The idea is to try and prank Ben into thinking that his PS4 had gotten smashed in a game of roulette, but little did Jono know the tables were turned and well, we suppose this is something you’d have to check out for yourself!

    We’re not sure if this entire thing was staged, but basically Jono was pranked in return and instead of smashing Ben’s brand new PS4 (which still had the “new console smell” according to Ben), something else precious got smashed instead. Personally if I were Jono I would be a bit upset to have this happen to me, but he seemed to take it in great stride, leading us to believe that it might be staged. Either way if you have a couple of minutes to spare, you might want to check out this PS4 prank that went wrong (or right?).

    Gaikai PS4 Streaming Service Will Work With PS3 And PS Vita Too

    Gaikai PS4 Streaming Service Will Work With PS3 And PS Vita Too

    Sony made it clear when it first unveiled the PlayStation 4 earlier this year that the new console will not be backwards compatible, meaning that gamers would not be able to pop in PS3 game discs into the console to play those titles. However, PS4 owners will be able to play PS3 games thanks to Sony’s Gaikai streaming service, which would allow gamers to stream PS3 titles from the cloud. Sony’s recent announcement about PS4 global sales also reveals that the GaiKai PS4 streaming service will work with the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita as well.

    The way this service would work is that gamers will have to pay a subscription fee to have access to “a catalogue of critically acclaimed PS3 games on PlayStation 4 and PS3, followed by PlayStation Vita.” The service would let them play those titles by simply streaming them from remote service, gamers won’t have to locally install those titles. So despite the fact that PS3 discs are not compatible with PS Vita and PS4, gamers will still be able to play those titles after paying a monthly subscription fee. Sony hasn’t provided an exact timeframe during which we can expect the service to go live, it has only said that Gaikai will be available in the U.S. next year, gamers in the UK might have to wait until 2015.

    Final Fantasy 14 Headed To PS4 April 2014; Beta Coming Feb. 22, 2014

    Final Fantasy 14 players have known for some time the popular MMO title will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 in the near future, with a beta supposedly being made available as soon as the console was available for sale, but it didn’t come. Up until now, Final Fantasy 14 players have gone without knowing exactly when the title would officially release on the PlayStation 4, but Square Enix announced April 2014 is when the MMO will be made available on Sony’s next-generation video game console.

    PS4 Leading Xbox One In UK Early Sales

    PS4 Leading Xbox One In UK Early Sales

    Sony initially launched the PlayStation 4 in North America, whereas Microsoft launched the Xbox One in 13 markets to begin with. The Japanese company finally caught up with Redmond a couple of days ago when it released PS4 in Europe. Early sales in the UK have the PlayStation 4 leading Xbox One, though retailers are of the view that the latter might do well in the run up to Christmas. At this point in time, there appears to be a much higher level of online buzz for Sony’s console as opposed to Microsoft’s new gaming machine.

    UK’s biggest retailer, GAME, said that demand for pre-orders of the PS4 has been four times higher than for the PS3. Amazon UK, the country’s second biggest retailer, has already said that based on current pre-order levels, Sony’s new console is going to be its fastest selling console ever, overtaking the Xbox One. PS4 has been launched in the UK almost a week after the Xbox One came out, and Microsoft is currently working hard to replenish stock as we head into the holiday season. Several retailers expect that Microsoft’s console will take the lead around Christmas, but currently PS4 seems to be generating all the buzz. Right now, the PS4 sits on top of the “Most Wished For” chart on Amazon UK.
