NSFW: Hey Sony, People Are Having Sex Live On The PS4

Give people a camera and a means to broadcast and you can bet that, sooner or later, they will use it to film themselves doin’ some sex. Even if it’s using a PlayStation 4 (warning: NSFW content follows).

'Watch Dogs' Is Finally Coming Out, So Here's A New Trailer For It

Watch Dogs was meant to be the crowning launch title for the PlayStation 4. But when it came time to settle on the final release date, Ubisoft decided to push it back.

Tomb Raider's Next-Gen Re-Release Is The First Game I Would Buy Twice

I bought Tomb Raider when it came out for PlayStation 3 back in early-2013 and I loved it to bits. The gameplay, the story and the graphics at the time made for a brilliant game. Now Eidos Interactive and Crystal Dynamics have taken a second go at it, re-releasing it for next-gen consoles with beefed up graphics. Once you watch this comparison, you’ll want to shell out another $80 as well.

Sony's Playstation Now Service M.I.A. For Australia

Watch This PlayStation 4 Destruction Prank Backfire Horribly

So far, the PS4 has had a pretty rough life, with YouTube channels subjecting it to weaponised punishment. One half of a Kiwi TV duo thought he’d have some fun and try to destroy his mate’s 8-hour old PlayStation 4, before it hilariously backfires.

PlayStation 4 Versus Xbox One: The Comparison We Had To Make
