What Happens When You Melt A PS3

Video: As a console gamer, I’m constantly in a struggle to figure out what to do with my old busted systems. I guess there’s always the store credit route, or maybe a quick resell online. But I like this YouTube channel’s way of thinking — just melt the bastard.

The PlayStation Network Is Down, Again

Update: Aaaand it’s up again. Happy gaming, people!

Trying to sign into your PSN account? Create a new one? Play some games on PS3 or PS4, perhaps? You might have a bit of trouble doing so, since the network is down. Again.

The Playstation Network Is Down

Signing in or creating an account on PS4 is virtually impossible right now, as is launching games, apps and video content on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. You can still search, buy and redeem vouchers for games through the Playstation Store, but good luck actually downloading them, or browsing content.

Playstation Now Is Coming To PC (And A Wireless Controller Adapter, Too)

PlayStation is making a bunch of its games available on PC, with the Playstation Now app launching on Windows first in Europe “soon” with North America to follow “shortly thereafter”. There’s no confirmed dates for when Australians will be able to access the 400+ titles, which include games from the Uncharted, God of War, and Ratchet & Clank franchises, as well PS3 games like The Last of Us and Journey.

Sony Will Reveal A Thinner, Cheaper Playstation 4 Next Month: Report

The Playstation 4 is getting a facelift. Sony will reveal a new slimmer version of the PS4 next month, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The new console, unofficially dubbed the PS4 Slim, will have the same exact specifications as the original PS4 but with a new thinner design. It will compete directly with the Xbox One S. According to one analyst cited by the WSJ, the new slim model will also be sold at a cheaper price.

More Details Emerge On PS4.5, Which Reportedly Won't Get Its Own Games

Last month, Kotaku reported that Sony was working on a new, improved model of the PS4, what was basically a PS4.5. Now Giant Bomb is reporting some further details on this new console, and it all sounds… a bit weird.

PS4 Remote Play Actually Works In Australia

Sony unleashed the latest major software update for the PS4 on the world last night, and with it came Remote Play on PC and Mac. The idea is pretty attractive, especially for those with families or large sharehouses where there’s a high possibility of the TV being in use. I’ve toyed around with Remote Play across a variety of games for a number of hours. And it’s pretty impressive so far — with a few caveats.

Playstation VR Is Ridiculously Polished For Something Still In Development

When Sony announced a release date for Playstation VR a few weeks ago, I felt simultaneously excited at the potential of the platform and sceptical about what Sony would actually be able to accomplish with nothing more than a giant headset, a Playstation 4 Camera, and the PS4’s relatively middling power. Can it really compete with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive? Having just tried it, I can safely say: Hell yes.

The PlayStation VR Will Be Out In Australia In October, Will Cost $549

If you own a PlayStation 4, your entry into the world of virtual reality just got a lot more accessible. The PlayStation VR will be out in Australia in October, and it’ll be barely half the price of an Oculus Rift or a HTC Vive — and that’s before the necessary gaming PC.

PlayStation VR Will Launch In Spring 2016, Says GameStop CEO During Live TV Interview

It’s looking like 2016 will be the year virtual reality hits the mainstream now that Oculus Rift is on the brink of shipping and Google Cardboard is into the millions of units sold. Now we finally know when Sony is releasing its new VR headset, too. GameStop CEO Paul Raines revealed the PlayStation VR will launch in the third quarter of this year during a live television interview.
