If you don't already have a PS4, and you don't want to shell out $559 for a PS4 Pro, then you may as well get yourself a PS4 Slim. The redesigned PlayStation 4 is usually $439 for a 500GB variant, but this weekend you'll find it for a fair bit less.

There's a moment playing Infamous First Light, as the heroine made of light climbs up a wall in pitch black darkness, that I fully appreciate the hype around the PS4 Pro. The woman is a multicolored bundle of light particles and thanks to HDR, I can make out each particle and note the way they each cast their own vibrant glow on on the red brick wall.

I'm watching the next big step in video games, and it is extraordinary.
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".

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 rumours are already flying that we'll be getting a new PS4 soon. Well, sort of. It won't play different games than the current PS4 does, it will just play them better. This is all in aid of making a PS4 that can handle the beefy graphics requirements of Playstation VR, and do what the original PS4 should have done: output 4K graphics.
Sony PS4 owners should update their consoles today. The new 3.50 system software update brings a bounty of desired features, including the ability to appear as if you're offline (useful to avoid friends who want you to get back into Destiny when you're currently into The Division) and to schedule online events (useful when your Division group needs to settle on a time to be online).
Gosh, wouldn't it be nice to play a little Bloodborne tonight? Shame my wife will be using the TV. If only I had a way to stream the game from my PlayStation 4 to another device. How about a hacked version of the PS4 Remote Play app that works on Android phones and tablets — and my Nvidia Shield? Yes. Yes. That will do nicely.

We'll let you guess which side is which.
